COLLEGE OF THE OPEN BIBLE
B I B L E
America is a nation of an immensely powerful influence of the redeemed of the Lord where there is vigilance to stay focused on God’s will and the business the LORD has given us, yielded to the solemn command of the eternal Son of God to preach the Gospel under the influence of the indwelling Holy Spirit and will be in force until “the end of the world,” and that is: acknowledging in the public square in our minds and hearts that JESUS CHRIST CAN NEVER BE LESS THAN WHO HE IS... HE IS LORD.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is ground zero for humanity and eternity. God the Father made redemption through the blood of His only Begotten Son the foundation by which we stand reconciled unto HIM. There is no hope for anyone apart from the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the pressing issue between God and humanity; not the results of the 2020 U.S. Election.
The challenge to redeem time is very personal with God. When we neglect our need to redeem the time, we leave ourselves vulnerable to the manipulating wiles of the devil that may leave one preoccupied with the cares of life. Our mission on earth is from the very throne of God in heaven... PREACH THE GOSPEL
To preach the gospel of Christ is to verbally expound God's testimony that He alone absorbed the total cost of redemption (John 3;16). Thus, God will always abide faithful to identifying us as His very own. As Christians, it is not our business to determine if we are of any use for God... but to abide in the truth that we are not our own (1 Corinthians 6:19,20). Exercising one's intentions to be used for God will never trump BEING USED TO GOD.
Knowing JESUS CHRIST is why Christians are different in an indifferent world. America and the world needs Christians to be like Christ.

2020 U.S. ELECTIONS vs. Reality. U.S. elections will affect things on earth, but they do not change anything in heaven nor does it change biblically grounded Christians. No election can remove God from His throne or Jesus Christ from God’s right hand or stop the coming of the Day of the Lord. The prophetic hour is very late, and as God’s redeemed await the Rapture, which is imminent, our assignment as ambassadors of Christ remains eternal.
First and foremost, as Christians we are to keep our affections focused on the reality of the Lordship of Jesus Christ: “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory” (Colossians 3:1-4).
Secondly: All power does not reside in Washington filled with people who are motivated by human instinct to merely survive and retain power that is at best: vain and suspect. All power is invested in Christ: “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. (Matthew 28:18)
Thirdly: Christians are not called to Christianize America. We are called to evangelize the nations of the world. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (Matthew 28:18-20). WE ARE NOT HERE TO MAKE POLITICAL AMERICA A BETTER PLACE TO GO TO HELL FROM.
