What Happened to "We the People"?
Concerned Women of America ^ | July 3, 2014 | Debbie Leininger

Posted on 07/03/2014 8:07:52 PM PDT by Maudeen

“We the People,” by God’s providence, formed the Constitution of the United States of America. It was a “Model of Liberty.” Its laws favored no people and insured peace and protection for its citizens. It promoted prosperity and every liberty imaginable to a free nation.

America became the greatest nation on earth. “We the People” were united by freedom’s cause. There were no bounds of opportunity in this free society. “We the People” dreamed big dreams, and Yankee ingenuity yielded monetary rewards. “We the People” spoke freely, worshipped freely, and taught their children the benefits of living in a republic, where all were represented equally. “We the People” generously helped other nations. America enjoyed the “Blessings of Liberty.” - See more at: http://www.cwfa.org/what-happened-to-we-the-people/#sthash.MW3YIjhQ.dpuf

“We the People” tired from the responsibilities that come with Liberty and allowed “We the Government” to take our place. [...] Now “We the People” could spend more time keeping up with the Joneses and not worry about keeping up with “Issues” and “Moral Obligations.”

Spot on.

Mussolini thought he could trample the people too. That didn’t work out so well for him.

Deuteronomy 28:43 The foreigners who reside among you will rise above you higher and higher, but you will sink lower and lower.

Humble ourselves! Seek God's face! Turn from our wicked ways before it is too late. May God in His mercy forgive us and heal our land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)

What Happened to "We the People"?

We've been presumed to be "we the (corporate) persons" and "we the (corporate) individuals," and we haven't rebutted that presumption.

We the People bent over and asked for more. Look at what that more got us.

We the People have become a calloused lot. . . having attended a Voice of the Martyrs Conference in Indiana last weekend . . . I had to ask the Lord for forgiveness for not faithfully praying for those being persecuted.

Everyone needs to go to the Voice of the Martyrs website. The inhumanity towards people of Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is incomprehensible.

As a missionary who has recently lived in the slums of India - I can attest that what you saw heard at that conference is not only a fraction of what is actually going on out there - but the worst things, things that you can never erase from your mind were only hinted at.

My eyes were opened and we Americans ARE NOT ready to handle what the poorest people on earth are capable of enduring with their faith intact.

If only “we the people” would answer the call of

2 Chronicles 7:14

If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

Verse 13 comes before 14.

It is AFTER verse 13 that The Lord gives His People the space of repentance, because obviously they did not heed and repent before God has to do verse 13.

You are so right! Thanks!

2 Chronicles 7:13-14

13 “When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, 14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

My Grandfather went home to be with Jesus almost 8 years ago now... He was a great story teller of family history and witness of many miracles in his 93 years of life and testimony. One of my last memories of a “new story” came on a visit when I stayed up late with him and we happened to be watching news coverage after 9-11 and George Bush ended his speech with his usual May God Bless America and my Grandfather said to me, “you know, I was sitting here watching the news late one night about a month or two ago, and had heard the same words come out of our Presidents mouth and no sooner than he finished, I heard the words, America has turned her back on me and I will not be blessing her until her people come back to me” He said he turned and looked around, thinking somebody had walked into the living room behind him, but nobody was there... He told me, he wished he was not alone at the time, because was pretty sure the words were aloud and not just something he heard in his head... But either way, he believed God talked to him and I Have to Believe he did too....

Simple! The people took the easy way out over the last century by allowing the country to morph into “We the government.”

What a powerful testimony.

I, too, had a Word from the Lord on 9/11 in the form of a song. That morning my friend called me and said urgently, “Turn on the television. I’m coming over. We have to pray for America.”

We watched in disbelief as the second plane hit the towers and after we prayed, I sat down at the piano. A patriotic melody came forth along with the words, “America, America.” The lyrics of the song was based on 2 Chronicles 7:14 and “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”

On the 10th anniversary of 9/11 I was led to write another song, “Zion, Your Redeem Will Come” based on the entire chapter of Isaiah 59.

“God Bless America” ought to be America Bless God.”

Thanks for the Link! and Thanks for the OP, my wife shared it on F/B. All of us conservatives need to get as proficient as the left using social media to spread this sort of message. People need to wake up and realize the vocal minority dragging this country down, is just that, a minority. But they are VERY Vocal and we need to learn to be just as Vocal in opposition... The left wants to boycott Christian companies like Hobby Lobby and Chick-fil-a, we need to take their lists of Companies to boycott and look to that list first when you go to make a purchase and especially American Owned companies in their cross hairs. The gun control crowd is so happy about all the recent business’ that have banned guns in their stores and restaurants... and organizing to support them, We need to stay away and let them know why, because we don’t like being targets in gun free zones.
