Righteousness Exalts A Nation

It is no secret that America is sadly following the trend of every other nation that has existed before. History tells us that societies do not trend toward becoming better, but eviler and more perverse. This is evident by the degradation of the home, the public school system and coddling of criminals. Sin destroys, kills, and accomplishes the devils will. Sin will feign providing pleasure (Hebrews 11:25), and rob one of the joys that God intended for their life and eternity. All one has to do is rustle the pages of a newspaper or turn on a news station and the plague of the world is manifest: sin. Jesus said, “the thief comes but to kill, steal and destroy, but I have come that they might have life; and have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). Jesus knows what sin will do to a world. He saw what happened in the garden (Genesis 3). He saw what later happened to the antediluvian world (Genesis 6). And He sees even now, the final destruction at the end of time (2 Peter 3:7).

Solomon said in the long ago, “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs 14:34). The more “righteous” people a nation has, the more “righteous” it becomes. The righteous are a leavening agent within their communities (Matthew 13:33). The more the righteous are engaging their communities and winning souls, the more the community should be transforming into a Christian community.

The nature of the kingdom is to consume all other kingdoms and transform them into that which is pleasing to the Father. Gods spiritual Kingdom is a worldly kingdom breaker. Gods’ kingdom is a consumer and shaker of the kingdom of darkness and all this world has to offer. Satan has his minions and his devices. The Bible tells us that he has “strongholds”. God, on the other hand, has soldiers. Warriors of a spiritual army. These arrayed in battle for God wields spiritual weapons. Paul said, “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds” (2 Corinthians 10:4).

Righteousness is made manifest in people’s character (nature), conscience (attitude) conduct (actions) and command (words). A person committed to righteousness are “good” by nature. The righteous person seeks to have the right attitude in every situation. The righteous do the right thing, regardless of the cost. The righteous speak words of life and love. The words they use command a positive present and future. The words and actions of the righteous reveal their commitment to God.

It is these kinds of people who live lives that exalt a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people. Will you commit to being righteous today? If you desire to know more about God, please, reach out to us below. We would be honored to help you in any way we can.
