Declaration of Dependence Upon God

We the Citizens and residents of the United States, human beings created in the image of God do solemnly declare… 

(Scroll down for the rest of the Declaration. First, I must explain why I am compelled to write this.)

Have you sensed a foreboding in the air? Various media outlets suggest coming calamities…and many people sense something coming of Biblical proportion.

Will Russia begin WW3? Will another pathogen be released? Is the new chimeric virus created in a Boston lab a new pestilence that will change the world, again?  Mid-term elections,  reports of extensive human  trafficking, winter supply chain issues…

We are realizing that giants and mountains bigger than we ever imagined exist both in unseen and seen realms. Ephesians 6 is becoming a reality for many Christians.  

Consider the chants of  pro-abortion women on SoCal, the school clubs promoting satanism, or events held for those who are turning their God-given humanity into a colorful spectacle.

We’ve got globalists who endorse intentional decrease of the human population. (God said to Adam and Eve “Be fruitful and multiply”. He wasn’t concerned about too many people here.)

The point is we need God. We have always needed God, but now we are realizing how much WE NEED GOD!

I prayed and took weeks to write this Declaration of Dependence upon God. Feel free to say it and share it with your friends. 

We, the citizens and residents of the United States, human beings created in the image of God do solemnly declare that we will serve the Most High God and no other.

As beings created in the image and likeness of God–the Creator of all things and the Most High who sent His only begotten Son, Yeshua (Jesus) to die for our sins and be resurrected on the third day–we acknowledge and declare:

We have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.

We, who are called the “hope of glory” have leaned to our own understanding,

We have honored idols and  exalted the work of our hands as if we can do good without the gracious empowerment of God.

We, in this day and age, have built our own towers of Babel within the seven mountains of social influence:
Arts and Entertainment

We have owned our time and money instead of stewarding them with reverence for God, the Author of time and the One who meets our daily needs,

and we have worshipped ease, luxury, convenience and cast off the value of work, diligence, patience, and endurance.

Pride in our own ways, pride in our reasonings, preferences, adopted identities, ethnicities, and nationalities has contributed to our downfall.

We have pursued solutions to our problems without first pursuing the Problem-solver.

We have prioritized other people-their opinions and feelings; strived for academic accolades and economic status, and revered the thoughts and ways of our fellow human beings, instead of giving first place to the Creator, whose position, glory,  thoughts and ways are higher and better than any of ours.

We have trusted our societal systems and those in positions of influence instead of first trusting the faithful, unchanging. consistent, benevolent, just and holy Creator God.

We have bowed to fear instead of bowing to our God for whom nothing is impossible.

We have introduced chaos and confusion to our children, allowing them to embrace thoughts and ways that are contrary to God’s intent for humanity.

This is our confession and to the Most High God, El Roy (the God who sees) we say, We have sinned. We ask for the forgiveness that only the blood of Your Only Begotten Son, Jesus the Christ, has supplied.

He is the Lamb slain before the foundation of the world, who came to seek and save the lost, to destroy the works of the devil, to announce to all principalities and powers that His kingdom shall never end! His is the name above every other name. The devils even believe in Him and tremble.

Most High God, we need You. We have always needed You. But we have not always heeded You. We turn from evil, renouncing every word, deed, and thought that we have agreed with that is contrary to Your intent for us. Forgive us. Deliver us from wicked beings and their schemes and plans. Help us be your hands, feet, and voice, the salt and light of the earth. We receive the Holy Spirit and the empowerment to do the “greater things” that Jesus referred to in John 14:12.

We bow humbly to Yeshua/Jesus the Christ, the Word of God (John 1), surrendering completely, with all reverence and joy. This is our wholehearted declaration. Amen.
