Exhortation- God is a Father with a Son and a Spirit

This month, we have been confessing the sin of serving the god of Americanism. I should give some explanation of that. We are not confessing a sin of being Americans.  We have every right to be proud to be Americans.  We live in a truly great country abounding with blessings far beyond the wild imaginations of the rest of the world.  We are not ashamed of that, at all. On the contrary, these blessings are a testimony to the greatness of our God, who has granted them to us.  But our nation is due a warning from the Scriptures and it is time that God’s people woke up and realized that we are in the process of forsaking the very God who has blessed us, the Triune God of the Bible.

The God of the United States is not Allah, not Buddha, not some Hindu idol.  Our God is none other than Yahweh, from the burning bush, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, and the Holy Spirit who lit the Apostles on the day of Pentecost.  It is He and NO OTHER.  There is but one God only, the living and true God. All other gods are dead and false gods.

Americanism is a false religion, one that professes belief in god but not the God of the Bible. We Christians reject all such claims as false and deserving the chastisement of the one true and living God.
Hear the Scriptures. 

Deut 8:10-19 10 When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the Lord thy God for the good land which he hath given thee. 11 Beware that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day: 12 Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein; 
13 And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied; 14 Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the Lord thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage; 15 Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint;16 Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end; 
17 And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth.
 18 But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
19 And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the Lord thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.
