Reaching and Revitalizing Rural America

 We are all living in a world of information that is instant which should give us goodwill and peace, yet we are seeing the opposite. We are in an age of foolishness, like never before and we do not know how foolish the next day is going to be. We are seeing evils dark side and no one is able to stop what is evil, for Satan is out to kill everyone. The rural America is affected as much, or maybe more for we are smaller than the populated area of our world, and we as a whole feel it effects on our sanctity.

We have a story of struggling in the decaying of morality in our cultures and traditions, in the home and our Churches, for people want to gather where there are numbers. The Rural areas do not have the luxury of large arenas and great musical talent that are entertaining in themselves. We are in an old environment where our Church are older and smaller and our youth have the ability to drive great distances to get what they want. For we have been geared to think bigger is better, and do not put the emphasis on relationship that should be an area of primary importance. The relationship with parents and the Church is what gave the Rural areas a feeling of belonging to God and to one another. That feeling is become now more of an interest in who has the most friends on the internet. 

Our Area is dependent upon Farming and Farming has become a large enterprise, involving several families to maintain and run the business which leaves those who are on governmental assistance demanding even more with less work being done by locals and the farmer having to go outside to get their employees. This attracts a lot of evil doing and when it is on a reservation your dealing with superstition and traditions that are based on the animal world, or worship of the Zodiac stars in the heaven and not fulling trusting in God, for God created everything good and evil and it is up to us to know the difference.  We lack pride of ownership of what we owe, for we’re surrounded by hate for what happen to us in the past. This is seen in how many alcoholics we have and how freely drugs are used. Then the way we treat our boys and girls without intact families, but broken families where the children may not know who Dad is, or maybe who mom is, so they live with grandma or aunties and uncles. This cause one to think about who am I?  Who really cares, and they feel they have a reason to hang out with their friends who are bent on trouble, with taking advantage of one another sexually, leading to more confusion of evil actions and behavior. The word dysfunctional becomes compounded for they have no sense of moral responsibility which needs to be taught in the home.

Our School on the reservation are plagued with absenteeism for why go to school for they have no encouragement in the home. You see when in the homes in our rural areas, we are faced with so many problems where no one is wanting to solve them, we have crime at an all-time high, which we are dealing with in our Valley as we have two laws and when you step into the Reservation your Governed by Indian treaty laws and the County Sheriff’s Department has to work with Indian jurisdiction. This then allows some to have favor and are not prosecuted according to the law, but turn back into the community to repeat the criminal activity. We have had several community meetings this year already with people in authority and it seems people are good at blaming someone else. Those in Patty Murray’s; our Senator in WDC office said, “we did not realize you had such a problem on the Reservation”. Our Tribal leader are wanting justice, but seem to be good at placing blame on our political officers, prosecutors and Judges.

Romans 4

Romans 4 New King James Version (NKJV)
Romans 4 here is talking about the doctrine of Justification by faith that is different than what is taught by Moses and the law he was given to obey. Abraham was the seed from which we all came from and just as Abraham had to have faith in what God said, so we in the New Testament have to obey the same rule the just shall live by faith. It is not by works that we have done or do, but by what Christ did for us on the cross. The whole chapter is given over to the fact rather Jew or Gentile we are all justified by our faith in God’s work done on the cross. He proves it, he observed it, he describes and he applies it to all of us.
Abraham Justified by Faith
What then shall we say that Abraham our father has found according to the flesh? What was Abraham a Hebrew who found as he was seeking some godly pearl and a great price the benefit of Salvation by faith he was pardoned or justified. Not what he did in himself but what God did in and through him.  For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. When we think it is what we have done that gives us glory we are being deceived for we are born sinners in need of a savior. As people we matter but to know the Lord we are glorified for the simple reason we are His children and not our own. We are His and God give us the ability to glory in who God is in us.  For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” What does the Scriptures say is the number one answer to all our questions? Abraham believed had faith and accepted Gods graciousness for he did not know where the Lord was taking him or what was going to happen to him. It is unbelief that we see yet today that prevents people from receiving the promises of God fulfilled in our world. We are seeing some tremendous things done, all because of man’s ability to develop and engineer new things like the internet that is controlled by the ability the mind has to comprehend. We can’t see, but by faith we believe what it is able to do? Totally amazing and it is changing our world as a tool created by man. Yet it is not God and you can get alone without it. Yet we can not get along without Gods love mercy and grace which is ours when we believe in God and become justified as we please the Lord, not please ourselves, but honoring Gods word and obeying Him. Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt. Yes we are all working to stay alive but that does not save our souls and spirits for they need faith in God to act upon God grace. The Souls five senses of Imagination, conscience, memory, reason and affection needs to be guided by the Spirit of God’s love. Our Spirits five senses of worship, reverence, hope, faith and prayer needs to be upon the guidance of the Holy Spirit who draws us closer to Him.
David Celebrates the Same Truth
But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness, just as David also describes the blessedness of the man to whom God imputes righteousness apart from works: Abraham and David could not expect to earn wages for their hire, we are guilty of sin and the wages of sin is death. But the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord. God gives us free grace for graces sake not ours. It is in Christ we stand actively, obedient in faith so we are pardoned and saved from sins that hang on like barnacles. David repent of his sin to Bathsheba and killing of her husband and wept bitterly. Peter weep when he denied the Lord at the crucifixion.  God intervened forgave as the cried out for mercy, grace and accepted God’s gift of pardon and justification. It is not what we have done but what Christ did that we are saved and justified as never sinning. The nature of forgiveness is the remission of debit we can’t pay for our crime, God cast this sin behind His back and hides His face from it. Our blessedness is not our innocence or our not having sinned, it is in Christ alone not imputing sin. Romans 4:8 Salvation is totally an act of God’s grace, love and mercy, not based on our works but His work at Calvary. We see pardon people are blessed people for they have a clear state out of debt to others and under then sentence of God redeeming grace. That is the reason our consciences to be alive and working to make us sensitive to wrong we commit so we can ask the Lord for help and He is always wanting us to grow in His love, mercy and grace, not overlooking sin but admitting sins.

"Look at our world and you see we are not improving, but seem to be getting out of hand in so many area of life that only God can restore us to where all is safe and sound. So Paul was Concerned with the Church then and we are concerned with the Church today living in a world of sins shame, knowing it is God we need to show us the way, truth and life."

18 and know His will, and approve the things that are excellent, being instructed out of the law, It’s God’s will, not my will be done. It is what we do for many have knowledge of the word of God, but no action or good works.  Good and bad lie sometimes so close that we can’t see the difference. Lord help us to know the power of enlightenment, so we do not think but do the work of an evangelist. It is so easy to see, desire, take and give and then have to hid our lust. Today the internet has taken the place of Play Boy for lusting is projected on ever sight it seems. We see the better but continue to do the worst is very common today. The Jews yet today teach their children out of the law in School and here in the United States we threw out the bible and pray in 1960’s. Yet Israel still has not accepted the fact Jesus wants to rule and reign today over our lives. 19 and are confident that you yourself are a guide to the blind, a light to those who are in darkness, 20 an instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, having the form of knowledge and truth in the law. Yes, a person can read and study the Bible and teach it to their children as a right way and life and not accept it as a personal way, truth and life for everyday living.  The Bible has to make an impression on our lives for it changes behavior and attitudes of our senses, so we glorify the Lord. The Christian life is not a picture but is life in Christ.  Knowledge produces a form of godliness and may deceive a person, but we are producers of righteousness in the purity of the Scriptures, we walk and talk what we believe. It is easy to think we have the secrets to life and can teach others the truth and yet be blind to the truth it needs to change me and my attitude. The Jews could not do what God wanted them to for they thought they were better than the Gentiles. It is so easy to think we know more that the sinner and get fooled by our lack of love, mercy and grace the Lord has for all. Lord help us not to be proud of who we are, but of who You are for You’re the savior of the World.   21 You, therefore, who teach another, do you not teach yourself? You who preach that a man should not steal, do you steal? Lord Help us to not be just words by examples of. What we teach.  Good doctrine needs to produce good doctrine. Note how easy it is to steal and Judas was some one that took from the giving for ministry according to Luke12 4-6. Look at people that are prying on the poor, taking advantage of people. Even the Church taking advantage of attendees. The wealthiest Church in the world has taken advantage of it people and build some very expensive houses of worship. Plus build up a tremendous sum of money for future us. Then we have adultery
