No Secular Country can Claim to Represent God

That they may know that you alone, whose name is Yahweh, are the Most High over all the earth” (Psalm 83:18). WEB

Let us talk today about Patriotism. Yes, but patriotism as mentioned in the scriptures with regards to God’s name.

The Bible is clear about the fact that God’s name, Yahweh, will be declared to ALL nations and peoples of the world.

We shout “America!” and talk about how much better we are than everyone else. But this is not biblical. We project Christianity on to the American flag and assume that God acts like an American. But this is not how it works.

If you are an American, feel free to celebrate American freedoms and realize how blessed you are to live there.  But you must remember that at the end of the day a True Christian’s citizenship is in the Kingdom of God. Wars, a million abortions a year, Hollywood’s sinfulness, corruption… even the best country falls way short of the holiness of the God’s coming Kingdom.

Think of “paradise” and how wonderful it will be when the earth is full of only loving people from all over the world. Be very cautious when it comes to political preferences, patriotism, and identity. Don’t forget who the god of this current world is: “We know we are from God, and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one” (1 John 5:19).
