For people of faith with a desire to rear their children in a morally upright and God honoring nation, this is one of the most crucial weeks in the history of the United States. We have all been praying and will continue to pray. We have all been praying for the Lord to have mercy upon our country and to turn us and our leaders back to the Bible upon which our Constitution is based. Whatever happens in this week’s election, we will still need a spiritual awakening that only God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ can bring. Others may be offended by my candor on this matter, but I am far beyond being concerned about negative voices in desperate times like these. We will stand up and be counted or criticized, but we will stand up for the truth as revealed in the Bible. Love in Jesus, Brother Jimmy
