The Patriots

July 4th, Independence Day, is the celebration of America’s official freedom from the tyranny of its motherland, Great Britain. Today, we, the American people, take this day for granted. Christians aren’t even sure if we should be patriotic to our country anymore. Join Reverend Kenny Yates as he shares his eye-opening message, The Patriots.

The Patriots

Patriotism is the love of one’s country. Our country is our inheritance from God. How can we, as Christians, not do anything but be patriotic to the country our God has given us?

When the Most High gave to the nations their inheritance, when He divided mankind, He fixed the borders of the peoples according to the number of the sons of God.

Deuteronomy 32:8

1 First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

1 Timothy 2:1-4

The Truth Will Set You Free

Every year, here in America, we celebrate the 4th of July. So many people don’t even know what we’re celebrating, yet it’s the very foundation on which America was built. July 4th, 1776, marks the day that we drafted our freedom from the tyranny of Great Britain. Because of this day, many generations have been blessed with freedom. Join Reverend Kenny Yates as he opens our eyes to our spiritual Independence Day in his message, The Truth Will Set You Free.

John 8:31–36

The Truth Will Set You Free

Freedom in Christ Jesus

As Christians, we have been given freedom from the slavery of sin by the redeeming blood of Jesus Christ.

31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed Him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” 33 They answered Him, “We are offspring of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How is it that you say, ‘You will become free’?” 34 Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. 35 The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”

John 8:31-36

1 For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.

Galatians 5:1

The Need For Salvation

21 But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it— 22 the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and are justified by His grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God put forward as a propitiation by His blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in His divine forbearance He had passed over former sins. 26 It was to show His righteousness at the present time, so that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

Romans 3:21-25

10 For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them.” 11 Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for “The righteous shall live by faith.” 12 But the law is not of faith, rather “The one who does them shall live by them.” 13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”— 14 so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith.

Galatians 3:10-14

In other words, without Jesus’ perfect sacrifice, we would be unable to be free from the chains of sin. We would be unable to overcome. We only overcome, because Christ first overcame. We overcome the World through Him. We overcome our sin through Jesus Christ. This is the need for salvation.

How to Use The Truth To Overcome and Be Set Free?

The only way to the know the Truth in order that you might be set free, is to read and study the Word of God.

17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.

Romans 10:17

We must first have the faith, which only comes through the Word of Christ. And the only way to overcome is to have the Word of God in us so that we might use it when we are under spiritual, emotional, and even physical attack.

12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

Hebrews 4:12
