EMG radio for today's culture and timeless truths come together it's reasoned relevant content apologetics worldview and answers to the questions that you need to know from Alex McFarlane ministries. This is true for a new generation radio and now the man who preached in 50 states and 50 days speaker, writer, and advocate for Christian apologetics Dr. Alex McFarlane on the night of December 15, 1945, a 37 foot boat noticed its way through a heavy snowstorm off of Cape Henry Virginia and landed in a place called Little Creek and on board. This 37 foot ship were 16 men from Estonia. Men, women and children.

Reader's Digest reported on this and they had been on an 8000 mile voyage that had begun hundred and 28 days prior. They left Stockholm Sweden and they had run from communist who were taken over the homeland of Sweden and the communist pressure the Swedish people to obey in all things, no freedom, economic freedom, no real cultural freedom, certainly no religious freedom that this boat was more than 50 years old and it was really built for about 4 to 5 people at most 13 days into their journey. Now they were at sea hundred and 28 days, 13 days into their journey. The boat sprung a leak and I try to repair it on the water but for the rest of the voyage hundred and 20 some days they had to constantly be bucketing water out and running a bilge pump by hand. They cross the North Sea into the Atlantic Ocean. They headed towards the material islands off the coast of Africa, then west across the Atlantic Ocean to the United States of America. They were in storms. They were driven onto rocks. They landed a time or two and try to repair the boat and get supplies they would head back out to see they nearly starved the wind.

The cold waves their clothes were soaked.

They were in snow and ice. And as they got closer to America at one point, storms drove them back out to sea and some of them said to themselves. However, though regarding the communist takeover of Europe. It would be better to drown at sea than to go back and they finally made it to America and in 1945 the headlines reported that they were quote the Mayflower of 1945 and in a way they really were pilgrims hi Alex McFarlane here. I welcome you to today's edition of truth for a new generation reasonably over that story is because it reminds me of four phone calls I had in rapid succession for the American family radio network and we had a number of callers commenting on the Democrat parties recent in admiration with socialism and a hard left turn that the Democratic Party is taken and of course people like Bernie Sanders, the professed atheist who is a socialist AOC, Harris supporting Marxist causes and I had four callers, one from Columbia one from the Philippines, a man from Mexico. A person would spend time in Venezuela and they all said this, they said, look, we left socialist countries to get away from big government and Marxism. We came to America for Christianity capitalism the Judeo-Christian culture and one lady especially was very touching. She was nearly in tears on the phone fighting back in motion. Trying hard not to cry on live radio in front of millions of listeners and she said I feel like him and then a nightmare that I can't wake up from. She said I left South America to avoid socialism to escape it. And here, America is now embracing socialism. If America becomes Marxist. Where else in the world. Could we go for 50 years, really since 1970 and 71, when New York and California began to lead us away from our natural law or moral foundation by implementing no-fault divorce and that was the first volley really fired to the begin the destruction of the family here in America and then there was 1973 Roe versus Wade and abortion, which is not a natural right, but was sold to the American people ratified by the Supreme Court under the guise of somehow a right to privacy a person is allowed to kill a baby and we are in the nation. At this point with the militant secularization of education and the breakdown of the family and now celebrities and pundits and commentators and journalists and even elected officials that not only mock what is good and true, and moral and right but actually flagrantly denigrate America, the Constitution are founders the ideals and the convictions upon which this nation was built. It's no wonder that America is teetering on the brink of anarchy and the social architects the progressives the liberals and yes I will say it. The Democrats they've done this that they've done this and so I want to talk a little bit about where we are and what might be a ray of hope there is hope. I'm a Christian I serve the God who created the universe, sustains the solar system planet Earth.

Even you and I and who conquered the grave. So our God is able but it's going to take prayer it's going to take a dependency on God and millions of people and certainly clergy and religious leaders to unify and throw ourselves before God and say, oh Lord, we need your help God.

We are desperate we stand on the on the doorstep of going into a very dark place and let me say folks if we become a socialist country if we fall off of the precipice that 50 years of secularism has brought us to. None of us hearing this radio broadcast right now will live long enough to see America rebuilt.

In fact, I really question whether or not America as we know it in our Constitution will even exist in 3 to 5 810 years.

If we don't immediately on the spiritual side turn to God and pray on the human physical side have leaders that are courageous enough to say to those that are trying to make this a socialist atheistic relativistic utopia. It it it won't be a man-made heaven on earth were about to enter. Really, that the fancy scholarly word is dystopia.

The biblical word would be hell on earth. We need a revival. Fortunately, that's possible, and excitingly you and I can play a role stated to three generation will be back after this and I want to talk about the state of America where we are, how we got here, but most importantly, where with God's help we might go America today is like a patient struggling to live yet is being forcibly euthanized by her quote doctors.

The life force within the patient fighting for survival is the honest citizens like yourself team of quote caregivers are the local and national leaders actually contributing to the demise of the patient economy is crashing crime is exploding.

The Constitution is being abolished the assault on America how to defend our nation before it's too late.

By Alex the farmer has one single purpose to get you prepared the real source of America's current problems that no one else is talking about and what you can do now to face tomorrow.

Regardless of what tomorrow brings.

The assault on America how to defend our nation before it's too late.

Thank you so much for giving us a chance, I hear you with Alex and Odell every get you podcast timeless cruise soundbite culture for a new generation radio in Exodus 19, five God says to the Israelites quote now then, if you will obey me faithfully and keep my covenant, you shall be my treasured possession among all the peoples, welcome back to trick for new generation Alex McFarland here were talking about America this great haven for pilgrims seeking freedom.

Now I want to talk about America being a covenant nation but in this regard. In the aftermath of the Protestant Reformation.

There were thinkers in Europe and they were not only thinkers and seekers of truth in most all of whom were believers in Christianity, but there were also people that wanted freedom of religion and they wanted to worship Christ and serve the Lord and not have kings or governments or monarchs insert themselves into the church and run the church as many people recognize that a state run church really did not enable the the body believers to fulfill Christ's great commission and be spiritually robust and so while Exodus 19. Five God says to Israel if you will obey me faithfully keep my covenant than what you shall be my treasured possession among all peoples. Now Israel being a covenant nation was due to the fact that the covenant was initiated by God.

God called Abraham. God promised Abraham soil seed and Savior everywhere. Your foot treads I'm going to give you this land and Abraham I'm going to give you descendents. I will make of your great nation, and Abraham through you all the families of the earth would be blessed but it dawned on thinkers like Johannes South Lucius in the 1500s and Edward Coke and Roger Williams, the founder of Rhode Island and others of the founders may be, while with Israel. The covenant was initiated by God. Maybe in the case of the New World. The nation been built on the North American continent. The covenant could be initiated by man. It would be a nation built on the law of God, the reality of the biblical God morals the gospel like Alexis de Tocqueville said in the early 19th century America is a nation with the sole of the church the people wondered, could a nation be a covenant nation because they bound themselves together and committed that they would build their country on the word of God and yes I would say clearly in 243 years of American history look America has been the nation that was birthed with the conviction that there should be civil rights for all America's been the nation of religious freedom. Great achievements in technology and education. Jonas Salk discovered penicillin. The Wright brothers built the airplane and America has given the world. Everything from benevolence and charity to HVAC air conditioning and automobiles owned by the common man and he America has been great. That's why was so thrilled.

On November 2, 2020 that present Donald Trump by Executive Order initiated the 1776 commission whereby he said that our students must be taught to love America not to vilify the founders but we are nation, my dear friend, I would say that we have betrayed our covenant with God was almost like the founders dip your toe in the water.

Remember, Peter walked on water and he saw the storm and it was boisterous and he became afraid he began to sink. We as as a nation, sociologically, governmentally, politically, culturally, we hundred and 40 years ago plus stepped out of the boat and we found keeping our eyes on Christ. We could walk on the water. Nationally, if you will, but we deviated. As I said, no-fault divorce, no legal protection for the unborn. The redefinition of marriage. The mainstreaming of sexual deviancy banning students from saying the blessing in school praying in the inside of a football field. You can't post the 10 Commandments and as I've said so many times in this program.

Look America was based on natural law. That's what was so hugely significant. On November 2 4:37 PM Eastern time when Donald Trump issued the 1776 commission and it got zero coverage in the press. In fact, I would. I would assume many of you have never even heard of this and yet the president by Executive Order the day before the election said we have to teach young people to appreciate this country and we will teach our true history, but he used the phrase as far as I know, no president of of our lifetime is even used Washington's phrase the laws of nature and nature's God. Now it doesn't make listen, it doesn't mean that nature is God. We don't worship nature know the laws of nature that means the natural law. The moral truth written on the heart of all people, and the God behind it. So the laws of nature and nature's God, the God that created the physical world. But the God also wrote his eternal truths on our heart and so that's why you know George Washington 1732 to 1799, Washington said, quote, it is impossible to rightly govern the world without God in the Bible is the founders believed they would create a nation that not only was implicitly based on the moral truth known to every heart but also on the overt special revelation of God's written word and in you know our judiciary are legislative and executive branches are based on the word of God and if you read Isaiah 3322 were textbook, prophet, priest and king. Read Proverbs 1434. That righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people and you'll you'll find similar sentiments in Proverbs 2723 29 18th look the judiciary branches as the Lord is our judge.

The legislative branch. The Lord is our lawgiver and the executive branch. The Lord is our king, and he will save us the three branches of government executive, legislative and judicial there drawn right from the word of God and the founders on our side of the table. They actively said we will build a covenant nation and we will be in covenant with God and will see if he blesses us and if we follow his covenant will God be our our Lord.

As one historian said Christianity was the religion of the founders and they expected it to be the religion of their descendents. We gotta take breaks taken will get to come right back after this very special edition of truth for new generation would get to talk about America's pathway back to God, which is I believe the precondition for our nation's survival don't go away.

But look, until Christ returns. Or we leave this world we got to live in the United States of America.

So we need people to be excited about building a better America and I believe that the future must be a rediscovery of our glorious foundation. Now if you said young people. The future is tied to our past hate no young people want to go backwards. They don't want to put the car in reverse, but we talk about our foundation. The core values that made our nation great. They will listen. I know because I correspond with hundreds every week we share something from just a few years ago in 2010 when Brock Hussein Obama was president. The group of leaders in Congress that meet for prayer with the Congressional prayer caucus, a bipartisan group of nearly 70 members. They wrote a letter to then Pres. Obama and they said this is December 2010, Mr. Pres., we write to you because Pres. Obama had spoken in Jakarta Indonesia and he said that quote our national motto is easy to service them out of the many one and the Congressional prayer caucus wrote to the president. They said that e pluribus unum is not our national motto in 1956, Congress passed and Eisenhower approved the law establishing quote in God we trust" is the official national motto of the United States it's referenced in our national anthem engraved on our currency and our coins in God we trust. But in the fall of 2010 or two 2009 through 2010. In three separate events in rapid succession. Pres. Obama would quote the Declaration of Independence and he would say that we have inalienable rights but he wouldn't say where those rights come from that there from God the Creator.

The founders knew that God was the source of our rights and so they they sort of thumb gave a little bit of a reprimand to the president and listen look you continually say our national motto is out of the many one, but it's not. It's in God we trust, and you continually say that we have inalienable rights but you neglect to say that the declaration, not to mention all 50 state constitutions see God as the source of our rights will friend among the dozens of people signed this letter asking the president Obama to reference the truth about her history that the founders forged this nation out of belief in the God of the Bible.

They quoted Ronald Reagan who said if we ever forget that we're one nation under God were simply going to be one nation gone under. This letter was signed by Randy Forbes and Michelle Bachmann people that we know people that we are appreciate but also Mike pence from Indiana since 2006 and I was reading this reflecting over just for more than a decade are drift away from the knowledge of God. Mike pence. Who knew that Mike pence would become the vice president and has been a great one. But look, there are a lot of us that were not being alarmist and were not trying to be overtly negative but we agree unit we agree with John Adams, who said, quote it is religion and morality alone which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand religion and morality alone will.

Where will we be when those like AOC and Bernie Sanders and, Harris and Ann Pelosi and Schumer that are trying to erase religion and morality from public consciousness. Where will we be when Christianity is fully silenced some years ago there was a very famous prayer that was prayed in the Kentucky legislature. Pastor Bob Russell was there to pray in Kentucky and he he prayed and he said you know God, we come before you to ask forgiveness now listen to this as I close, he said we have ridiculed absolute truth and called it pluralism.

We worshiped other gods and call it multiculturalism. We've endorsed perversions and alternative lifestyles and called it tolerance with kill the unborn and called it choice. We've abused power and called it political savvy we've coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition. We've neglected to discipline our children and have called it self-esteem. We've ridiculed time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment searches of God and save us a God. Well, that's an abbreviated version of that very well known prayer by Bob Russell. But it's very relevant for today. Let me encourage you to please pray for America.

May we all humble ourselves before God and be grateful for all of God's blessings, salvation, life itself America, our Constitution, but may we pray, pray, pray and intercede for this country that the truth will prevail and that God will have mercy on this country. George Washington said truth will ultimately prevail where there is pain's taken to bring it to light. May we be people of truth and may God in his mercy, because truth to be the foundation of our nation.
