Hi, everyone, I’m Elaine Beck. And today we’re doing a, something a little different on, It’s Not About Us, I want to speak to something so powerful that the only place to do it was out here with God in our country, looking at the sky and the clouds, and this beautiful flag above me, that flag happens to have a Bible verse on it. And that Bible verse is so huge right now, because it’s what God is instructing us to do, like never before. That Bible verse is the verse that God gave me five years ago, when He first gave me a vision to bring the Christians together in this nation. This flag has the scripture on it that says this: “If my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves, turn from their wicked ways and sin, seek my face, I will save their land.” I know that everybody within listening, or will ever hear this, or will ever see this understands that some part of you knows that our land is under attack. And our world is under attack. You know, that’s God’s land. You know, His homeland is Israel. His city is Jerusalem. And His chosen people are the Jews. But we are in the United States of America. And we are here because God gave us the ability to be born in the most God fearing freedom loving nation ever on Earth. And we have honored that, but now we’re straying away from it. I’m talking to all of us. I’m talking to all of you Christians out there, and all the people that are believers, and know God personally, even because we are all sinners. And that’s what this Scripture speaks to. It doesn’t speak to the person that you compare yourself to. And say, I don’t sin that bad. I don’t do that ugly thing. Because we all sin, every day, we say it lightly as Christians too often, we don’t realize the power in those words, and what God is trying to tell us. But He gave me something to share with you. And it turned into something wonderful called, We Are Not Enemies, because we’re not supposed to be enemies. The Bible speaks to this over and over again, in Jesus’s words that He speaks throughout the Bible, and the things that He taught His disciples. And then He said, you know that we are to go and spread this word. So this is what we’re trying to do right now. I want you to understand that when, when in that verse, when He says, humble yourself, He’s saying, Remember, you are no better than anybody else that’s humbling yourself. That’s admitting that you can’t compare yourself to other people. And the other verse that He gives us, that clarifies it more clearly than anything else, is when He Himself was hanging on a cross, dying for our sins, so that we can have eternity. He said these words to His Father in heaven, forgive them, for they know not what they do. Look at this. Look at this. This is our world that he he made for us. Look at the beauty of it. But understand that he put people on this earth, and we fell immediately in the Garden of Eden. And now we’re all sinners. And we have to turn from our wicked ways means to turn away from the idea that you think you’re better than somebody or you think you’ve got something over somebody, or you think that you have more more abilities than somebody. No, God loves all of us. He says he loves all of His children. Every child that is conceived, God loves every child, he wants to end up in heaven. But as long as we are turning towards the darkness, and that’s what we’re doing, there isn’t one of us that doesn’t turn towards the darkness every day. And we sin. And the biggest sin is seeing that we’re better than somebody in his eyes, we are never better than anybody. Are we his children, those of us that have called on him to forgive us and humbled ourselves and said that we’re sinners. Yes, we’re His children, if he wants all to be His children, so he’s calling on his children, those who seek his space, those who are part of his family all ready to humble ourselves and say, God forgive them they know not what they do. And you know, that’s true. If you look at the reality of our world right now. These people have been born into homes where they were taught evil, they were taught to kill they were taught to, to be evil to people and torture them from the time they were this big people. Others, maybe not so much. But isn’t it just as bad to be told that you’re better than everybody? And that you have more rights than somebody else? Isn’t that a sin? Isn’t it a sin, to keep the real news from people, like the media is doing in this country and around the world? Isn’t that a sin? To lie to them, and tell them and deceive them and make them think that God is not the creator? Or that we are not? To be here and love one another? What did God tell us? The first commandment is to love him with all of our heart, our soul and our mind. But the second one that he said, that’s just as important is to love our neighbor as ourselves. Can you say you’re loving your neighbor, when you’re looking at him? And judging him? And we don’t mean the kind of judgment where you’re saying, you know that evil is evil? No, that’s okay. It’s okay to have righteous indignation. That’s okay. But you don’t say I’m better than them. I deserve better. No, in the Bible, it says, Not one of us deserve anything, not one. Those are the words of God, come through Jesus. It is so important that we understand that in seeking his space, in that scripture, he saying, Get in a quiet place, close your eyes, center yourself on me, and understand that I am God. And that I can save everybody, if you just humble yourself, and forgive your enemies. And that’s why it’s called, we are not enemies. And that’s why I asked you to go to we are not enemies.com. We are not enemies.com. We are not enemies. Just keep saying that to yourself. And understanding that God doesn’t want us to be enemies, he doesn’t want us to be putting each other down. He doesn’t want to each other to to be thoughtless about the other person or try and put themselves above them. He wants us to love him. First. Foremost, that’s what we’re here for. We are here to serve a God that deserves everything that we can give to him. And so I asked you today to look at this beautiful flag. I know it’s gorgeous mountains and ask yourself, can I do this? Can I pray for my enemies? Can I humble myself and say, I’m no more worthy than anybody else? Can I do that? You’re darn right we can. It’s no easier for some of us than others. We’ve got family or friends that have turned against us over politics and everything else. That Guess what? God doesn’t look at the right or the left. He doesn’t look at the rich or the poor. He tells us all of this in his word. What he looks at is if you can love your neighbor as yourself,
after loving him first. And if you love your neighbors yourself, you’re still going to live by the Golden Rule, do unto others as you would have them do unto you. And that’s all he’s asking. So we’re going to have a national season of forgiveness, starting November 26, the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend, of 23. Going through to the Sunday, or excuse me, I don’t know if it’s gonna fall on a Sunday, but it’s gonna be November 26, of 24. This means that we are all to humble ourselves daily, and pray for our enemies. And I know we all can do it. I know we all can look beyond our own personal hurt or our own personal feelings. Because God gives us that ability. When he says love one another, he means it. And, you know, I’ve had people hurt me in my life, just like everybody else. But guess what, that’s not important. Ultimately, what’s important. Ultimately, what is important is serving God, loving Him, putting him first, and knowing that I will live for eternity with Him. That’s all that matters to me. I don’t need to please everybody else. I’m not here to get gratification. I am here to speak for God because he asked me to, and I will do anything he asks of me. And I know that most of you will, too. And if you don’t, you need to humble yourselves and pray that you can. Because God loves you all, no matter where you’re at, or what you’re doing. He loves you. And this is all he’s asking of this nation. If you want this nation saved, you can’t change who’s in office is easy as you can to humble yourself and go before God who loves you. You can’t rely on who is running for office, but you can rely on God. You cannot believe that you’re capable of changing your world. Only he can just remember that and know that. My show is all about him and telling you the good things that are happening in this country. And right now the best thing is the national season of forgiveness. Because if we can do this, God will save our land. And I know that’s what you want for generations to come. God bless you and thank you for being at my show today.
