As the USA celebrates the Fourth of July, four pastors ask Americans to thank God for Independence. These patriotic messages are from pastors Steven Andrew, Bill Keller, Wiley Drake and Gordon James Klingenschmitt. The new Revival Force ministry has organized these God and Country videos, and made a keepsake brochure and patriotic song sheet for use across the USA. The videos and free brochures are here.
“History shows that God blesses America when we stand up for our God-given rights. Our rights for Independence and liberty are from God. That’s why we thank Him. God made man in His own image so man has dignity. No one should surrender their unalienable rights. God is Supreme. His Word says we ought to obey God rather than men. Let’s thank Him as a nation,” said Steven Andrew. The pastor is president of USA Christian Ministries, founder of Revival Force and author of “God’s Plan for the USA”. He is starting 25 ministries to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Bill Keller said, ” It is God who gave this nation birth 238 years ago. We have got to come back to a place where we honor God.” In 1999 Keller launched Liveprayer.com. It is the most successful online Christian ministry. Each morning his Daily Devotional is emailed to over 2.5 million subscribers. Keller also hosts a highly rated nightly “live” TV program seen on stations throughout the nation and the internet. He is in the media often on the issues of the day from a Christian worldview.
Pastor Wiley Drake shared how the Pilgrims got on their knees and said they came for the glory of God. Drake would like Americans to turn to God on Independence Day. He is former 2nd Vice President of the Southern Baptist Convention, hosts the Wiley Drake Show and a veteran. He is celebrating the Fourth of July with a service at Gettysburg.
Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt wants the nation to turn to God, including government. He said, “We salute the 65 chaplains who just appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court in defense of religious liberty, denied promotion and justice by the Obama Administration and drummed out of the service because they prayed and preached the Bible ‘in Jesus’ name.'” He recently won the Colorado primary for State Representative (District 15). Klingenschmitt is founder of Pray In Jesus’ Name Ministries and TV show and a veteran.
Everyone is encouraged to read the Declaration of Independence and understand our God-given rights. These leading pastors are working for revival.
