Jesus stated a core belief to Martha. Then He asked her if she believed it? John 11:26 says, “And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?”
Scriptural core beliefs are non negotiable. They are hills that we will die for. Many have given their lives because they refused to renounce their belief in Jesus. Acts 4:11 says, “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
The Bible is relevant no matter what culture you are in or what period in history. What we believe affects every aspect of our lives.
Proverbs 22:28 says, “Do not remove the ancient landmark, which are fathers have set.” Does this sound relevant to today’s reality in our nation? Deuteronomy 27:17 says, “Cursed is the one who moves his neighbor’s landmark…” (different setting but the principle remains)
Our core beliefs will come under attack. It is important that we rehearse them in our hearts. What we believe we speak. The enemy of our soul is always seeking ways to undermine our faith.
Jeremiah 6:16 says, “Thus says the Lord: Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk in it.”
It is time for us to pray for our nation and the world as never before. We have an election coming up. One party opposes all that the Lord stands for. They will sway many who also oppose Him. Yet our country was founded on core beliefs.
Negative thoughts, which are satan’s inside weapons, are not our portion! Don’t engage! Our thoughts, purpose, and actions are always being conformed to His will through our trials. Strength comes through unity. Let us unitedly stand and together petition the only One who is in control of all things at all times.
