LISTEN NOW! Who will stand in the Gap?
Greg, John, and Pat share about intercession which is described as one who will stand in the Gap. They discussed several intercessors like Amos, Moses, and of course Jesus. The ultimate intercessor the one who stands between hell and us guarding and warning us from the dangers of hell and pleading to God for us to make it to heaven. Who will stand in the gap, who will be an intercessor; like so many who have gone before us to stand in between the darkness that is coming upon people with one arm outstretched toward the darkness and one arm holding back those who are in the path of darkness and look up to heaven and cry out to the Lord on their behalf. Will it be you?
We hold these truths to be self-evident…
In this original intent of America moment, Greg shares about the Founding Fathers and some of their journey to get to the point of writing the declaration of Independence. He continues to share how the first few lines of the Declaration of Independence are so important because it is the main premise for what the rest of the document was about. We must not forget that America has government for the people and by the people.
Excerpt of the Declaration of Independence
“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
U. S. Citizenship Test and Game: 41-45
Greg, Pat and John revisit the citizenship test given to people who want to become citizens of the United States. They have fun answering questions given on the test, with Greg asking the questions as the host, with Jeopardy music and all. They answer questions like: Under our constitution some powers belong to the Federal government what is one of those powers? Under the constitution some powers belong to the state which is one of those powers? Who is the governor of your state? What are the two major political parties in the U.S.?
