Hello friends Michael Yusuf here with a very warm greetings on this memorial day. I know that Memorial Day has come to symbolize the first day of summer fun and barbecues and games and that's fine. But remember also the time to really remember those who have given their all life for this great country Inc. you for joining Dr. Michael you sent on this very special leading the way, this is Memorial day day officially set aside to remember and honor those who've lost their lives while serving in any one of the branches of the United States military. This is a day when nationally we look inward, reflecting on the sacrifice that comes with being an American.
Dr. USF has a unique perspective on being an American is well as an immigrant, who later became a US citizen I dream of hesitancy was a young man he appreciates the freedom from persecution from the standpoint of a man who grew up in a nation where freedoms were stripped from the citizens so now in the light of this holiday today on leading the way. Dr. USF offers a message that will encourage and challenge you to stand up for the freedoms for which people fought and died with the message he's called my perspective on America hears Dr. Michael USF in the last few decades of late. We have been experiencing a nightmare scenario that is being accelerated so much so that some of those who hate America and want to destroy America's founding principles are now being elected to public office. Those who seek to destroy America's founding principles are now having seats of power. The very people who came to America and found refuge in America are now on a mission to assault America's biblical foundation to spread anti-Semitism, and while I am one of those people who find refuge in America while I'm one of those people who have immigrated to this great land so many years ago while I am a legal immigrant to this great country. I find myself compelled to speak up and to speak out against those my fellow immigrants who want to obliterate the nations biblical foundation. I thought God, but I'm not alone but there are millions of faithful immigrants who came to this country like me love this country the greatest country on the face of the year. There are many who, like me, who love their America as it was envisaged by the founding fathers I know that I speak for many who have immigrated to this great land who would say that our gratitude for being Americans compels us to love and respect the founding principles of America. I speak for many thankful immigrants to this blessed land when I say that we love the America that was conceived by the founding fathers that we want that America, whose foundation is the Bible that we want that America that feared God, that we want that America of which George Washington said it is impossible to govern without God in the Bible that we want that America of which Lincoln said it is the only assurance of our nation safety is to lay a foundation in morality, and Christianity.
We want that America, of which the 1844 Supreme Court said the Bible, especially the New Testament should be read and taught as divine revelation in schools otherwise. Where can the purest principles of morality be learned so clearly or so perfectly as from the New Testament. Yes, we love and we want Brett America give God praise for God price.
I know I for millions. When I say that we want Brett America, of which the 1892 Supreme Court said morality of the country is deeply redrafted up on Christianity and not upon the doctrine all worship of other religions. Yes, we want Brett America, of which the 1811 New York Supreme Court said whatever strikes at the root of Christianity tends to manifest.
Later the dissolution of several government and then it continues because it tends to corrupt the morals of the people and to destroy good order. Yes, we want that America that reflects the view of the belief of 90% of the people, not the 3% vocal and aggressive people.
I know I speak for millions of immigrants when I say that we want that America of which Webster said the principles of all genuine liberty and of wise laws and administrations are to be drawn from the Bible and sustained by its authority. The man therefore who weakens or destroys the divine authority of that book may be an accessory to all public disorder which society is doomed to suffer. Yes, we want Brett America and when I think of Webster. How prophetic is that how prophetic is that those words are far from being heated in many courts and across the land. In fact, many reporters trying busily striking away, destroying and chipping away at the founding principles of this great nation. Not only that but the education bureaucracies is now rewriting history books unruly mob are defacing on destroying historic landmarks. We now have mob rule.
But that's what happened when God was kicked out of the nation. The anti-God forces are busily taking away freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom of expression, but only from Christians in schools instead of studying the very first president.
They now have so many pages studying the history of the founding of the Sierra Club, give me a break. Someone nailed it on the head when it says if a foreign government has done to the nation schools what we have done we would have considerable to be an act of war.
The tragedy is this.
Today, 82% of millennial's consider Christianity to be a relevant.
Because of this, half of the professing Christian millennial's believe that evangelism is wrong. I'm not blaming the millennialism trust me, I don't and I never do I blame my generation, for we are now reaping what my generation had sown the baby boomer generation got so busy making a living that we fail to teach what life is all about to the next generation. The Bible said we saw in the wind and now we are reaping the whirlwind. All of this chipping away at our true history of biblical history has invited many a church even today circled evangelicals and today we have many freaking false gospels, pop theology and feel good message.
We don't do that here. Payment, my beloved friends with five being fulfilled before our own eyes we are not living in an environment where the truth of God has been exchanged for lies a lot in my book the hidden enemy how another document every bit of it that militant Islam and militant socialism militant secularism normally at odds with each other, but for some strange reason, not strange to me that conspiring together, together with the foot soldiers in the media in order to undermine the foundational stone. The biblical foundation stones of this great country there conspiring together to destroy the biblical foundation upon which America is built, or at least whatever's left of it now. I for one, I will not be silenced.
I will not be gagged and will not stop calling evil evil. If you follow what they been saying graph called me every name in the book. The one thing left that have not called me a white supremacist, but that's coming this coming that's what they do.
They throw accusations in order to silence us and beloved, listen to me. My generation took the message and become silent no more. It is my conviction that either will return to the word of God or going to face annihilation.
Psalm one 1911 said, I have hidden the word.
Your word in my heart so that I might not sin against you. The only hope we have is to challenge ourselves and the next generation not to be unhitched from the word of God.
We need to challenge ourselves in the next generation of fresh to love the word of God to believe the word of God and trust in the word of God and yet still obey the word of God in my beloved friends until faithful people rise up and say enough is enough until faithful people stop sleeping in the pews until faithful people stop accepting the status quo until faithful people give up their passivity and fear of rejection and wanting to be accepted by this world system. We are going to go from bad to worse until my generation stops falling in love with soft living and compromise. We will not see a revival will not survive him a ride please. The depth of my love for this great nation left understand this, that the depth of my love for the biblical foundation of this great nation stems from the fact that I lived under so-called socialist regime. I lived under such a system. Now that system is being romanticized by some presidential candidates romanticizing socialism they don't know they either ignorant of the deliberately misleading listen to me. Don't believe those snake oil salespeople don't fall for the sweet talk of getting everything for nothing.
The reason this nation has become the greatest nation on the face of the earth not because the founders wanted free stuff from the government.
No, but because they signed a covenant with each other, pledging their fortunes and their very lives for the cause of freedom and most of them suffered severely. Heavily, to give us the freedom that now we have and take for granted. Millions of people.
Since that time have given their lives in the battlefield have died for that great flag they've given the last of great nation, not so that their children and grandchildren might get free stuff, but that there may be free.
I was thinking about this and I honestly don't know whether this type of message will ever be able to preach it again. I don't know but I'm giving it my all and are long, long, and challenge everyone who's listening with her today or in the years to come.
I don't know. I don't know how many years we have no mistake about it, please, please, please know that change will happen, but only if God's people stop rationalizing and explaining away sin change will happen. Change will happen when God's people stop calling sin, freedom change will happen when we live repentant lifestyle change will happen when we call the nation to repentance. But we cannot call the nation to repentance without us reprinting of our own sin that will be self-righteousness change will happen when a citizen of this country insist in voting out godless people out of office change will happen when motherhood is honored once again change will happen when fathers take their rightful place of leadership in the spiritual headship in the home. Change will happen when we begin to see our children as a blessing of God as a gift of God not as nuisance change will happen when we elect people to office her love this great country not hated or use it or abusive change will happen when we will say with Andrew Jackson when he pointed to the book of the Bible and he said that sir is the rock upon which this Republic is founded change will happen when we can say with Patrick Henry. The Bible is worth more than all of the other books that have ever been written.
You know I spent a few years in the jungle of academia. I really have Balaam ago get into that, but I saw it from the inside and in the jungle of academia.
We spent trillions of dollars trillions of dollars so that our children and grandchildren might hear the undermining of the truth of the founding of this nation. And yet, Jesus said, speaking to the father of the father. He said your word is truth.
Thy word is the truth safe with me, and the truth of God's word is the only truth that has proven for 2000 years. The only truth that gives hope to the hopeless. That gives peace to the tormented that gives joy to the sorrowful that gives freedom to the captives to give salvation for the lost recently out of the letter sent to me by a university student in Canada.
I will read parts of it to you a month into university. I hated my life I wished I was dead this summer. God's touch my heart as I listen to your sermon and I began to weep. God opened my eyes to Scripture and filled me with the Holy Spirit, praise his holy name. While I'm only 19. I have my whole life.
Now to live for him. I read this over and over and over and it just reminded me of the fact that we are leading the way team God has let us off the prayer and fasting to set the goal of reaching 1 million people like this young man between now and the year 2025: vision 2025 upright ask you to pray, commit this vision to God because only God can do that beloved that can only happen when we start saying with Jesus to the father. Your word is the truth. Pontius Pilate asked what is truth answers came screaming at him. God's word is the truth that communist Russia tried to eliminate the truth and then the truth came back screaming at him, thy word is the truth.
Hitler and the Nazis tried to suppress the truth but God's words came screaming back. Your word is the truth.
God please God's word is the only truth that saved from hell. God's word is only truth that can change lives. God's word is only truth that can deliver us from the abyss.
God's word is the only truth that can heal us and cleanse us God's word is the only truth that can take away the pain of death and give us hope beyond the grave. God's word is the only truth that can pull this great nation from the abyss that were looking into right now I'm told that there are four stages to death by starvation. The first stage is irritation, then exhaustion, depression, and finally life listeners please him right of the word of God is not your daily food. I wanted to watch out. First of all, you become weak and irritated and susceptible to the virus of temptation.
Secondly, you will be spiritually exhausted, listless and indifferent than third stage is that you will become spiritually depressed and finally, spiritually speaking, you become comatose. Let me ask you this question.
Are you irritated are you irritated now that I'm preaching the truth. I see when I see people getting irritated that the preaching of the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
I fear what will follow. This is the very sign of spiritual starvation for the word of God, the prophet said the day is coming when they're gonna be starvation enough for food but for the word of God. The reason today we have so many people who are angry and frustrated. The reason we have so many people today who are indifferent toward the biblical foundation of this nation is because they have stopped feeding upon the word of God.
You see, the first thing enemies of Christ did was to remove the Bibles from public life. Now they're not even require when they pledge their allegiance to say so help me God than the removed prayer from the classroom public gathering. Now they tell you not to pray in Jesus name, beloved, now we are reaping the consequences of what will soon and you know it's never too late. We can always repent of that.
I really believe that with all my heart. Here's a fact. Bread will not help you until you eat it. The word of God will not help us when we lock it up somewhere. The truth of the word of God will not help us when we become unhitched from the word of God. The word of God will not feed us if we use it like a buffet table. We pick and choose. We reject this and like this and don't like this today. We have many secular preachers and church preachers who are deceiving us by telling us that we can be a rich nation without righteousness, that we can be happy without holiness that we can have crowns without crosses that we can have conquest without conflict that we can have settlement without surrender that we can have testimony without a test that we can have religion without repentance is what God said you really me where manual religious ceremonies. I see her hands lifted up and worship in our hard my face. That's because we surrendered biblical truth in mid worship to be a bunch of emotional experience. The Bible says blessed is the man whose God is the Lord Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. If we are going to see revival in this nation. Please listen to me are praying for that for 40 years now, but if we don't start a Bible in this nation.
Let me tell you it does not begin outside there. It has to begin in the church that has to begin in the household of God, it has to begin with the people of God getting right with God, please listen to me. You cannot cheat God with his five offering expecting God to bless you in the long run you cannot cheat on your spouse and you think that God will bless you in the long run. You cannot have two sets of books one for Uncle Sam and one for the banker and expect God to bless you in the long run. Blessed is the man whose God is the Lord Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.
