July 1st  ~  was  Our  CANADA  DAY  !

It is an enigma how that some Canadian

“christians” don’t recognize that Canada

is part of God’s Global Mission field.

That any one, any where, on planet earth that 

does NOT HAVE Jesus Christ ALONE as his or

her own personal Saviour is NOT saved, & is

NOT going to Heaven when they die.

John the Baptist made it plain in John 3:36:

“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life:

and he that believeth not the Son shall not see

life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”

Some of Canada’s early leaders looked to the Holy Scriptures, the Bible, as The Authority in the affairs of God’s rule over kingdoms & in matters of life, death & Salvation.  “.. it is appointed unto men once to die and after this the judgment” Heb.9:27

In 1867, 150 years ago the Dominion of Canada came into existence.  The term dominion means “sovereign or supreme authority, the power of controlling in a self-governing nation”.  As the Fathers of Confederation met in 1867, a name for its new nation needed to be chosen. It was suggested to call our country the Kingdom of Canada”; but this did not seem suitable.

Sir Leonard Tilley, Premiere of New Brunswick, proposed “Dominion of Canada”.   This idea had come as he had been studying his Bible. Psalm 72:8 stood out, “He shall have dominion from sea to sea..”. From the very beginning, God Almighty as revealed in the Bible, was understood to be our Ruler Supreme-> THE ONE Who would keep our land glorious and free.  Even the preamble to our  CHARTER  OF RIGHTS  AND  FREEDOMS, (freedom OF religious worship, freedom TO vote, freedom OF speech, etc.)  which passed in 1981, states, “Whereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the  SUPREMACY  OF  GOD  and the rule of law …”.

Today, 36 years later, there are those who want to remove the true God from His rightful place as the God over us.  They want a purely secular society.   SECULAR-HUMANISM is indifferent to, or completely rejects the true God & any religion in public life (other than the religion of humanism).   They want freedom FROM religion not freedom OF religion.  It teaches that life WITHOUT God is normal ! 

Others promote PLURALISM, which teaches that there are many “true beliefs” & that all religions have validity.  They oppose any Christian beliefs shaping & influencing society.”   In effect pluralists give validity to every other religion  EXCEPT for BIBLE Christianity.  ~  (copied & edited)

As the LORD’S Bible-believing Born-again Saved People, let us not be swayed by these atheistic & humanistic new-age philosophies.  Remember the LORD’S many promises & commands to His People:

Proverbs 14:34  “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.”  Psalm 33:11-12a   “The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever,  the thoughts of his heart to all generations.   Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD…”   Isaiah 33:22  “For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; he will save us.”      Psalm 9:8   “And he shall judge the world in righteousness, he shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.”

1Timothy 2:1-4   ” exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;  Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.” 

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise,

as some men count slackness; but is

longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that

any should perish  (go to hell when they die)

but that all should come to repentance  (Believe

on the Lord Jesus Christ alone as Saviour & get saved

& go to Heaven when you die!

And account that the longsuffering of our

Lord is salvation”  2 Peter 3:9 & 15

(Read The Good News for more on salvation.)
