NATION BUILDER DAILY DEVOTIONAL

DAY 1 –

Scripture of the Day: “Who has heard such a thing?  Who has seen such things? Can a land be born in one day?  Can a nation be brought forth all at once?  As soon as Zion travailed, she also brought forth her sons.”  Isaiah 66:8 NASB

Quote of the Day:  “A new nation, rising within the defined geographical boundaries of an existing nation without a military coup, does not coincide with the contemporary academic interpretation of historical accounts or any tactical response to symmetrical acts of oppression.  Only A Flawed Visionary could possible peer beyond the natural attitude and the environmental guardians with a clear spiritual mindset to see the need and the reality.”

Message of the Day:  The freshness of a concept may tender the full explanation within its content to the “why now” or “why never before” questions.  Perhaps, the reason such things have not been seen; until the present, no one has developed the apropos strategic approach or applied the theological mandate.  A people, possessing a complete schematic design to invoke a governing apparatus, will illuminate more than a nation.  They will release the “Collective Genius.”  This cannot be considered a recycled idea.  This concept may well represent a theological principle that has not resonated with those in designated leadership positions.  Fear need not grip the gatekeepers.  As long as Caesar continues to receive the levy due him, no counter-issue should surface.

Prayer of the Day: O Lord, give an understanding heart to the imperfect people and the impoverished people, empower them to grasp Your Divine awakening to nationhood emergence.  Open the eyes of the justice seekers, progressive individuals, and skilled laborers to envision Nation Building as the means to overcome despair, hopelessness, injustice, oppression, and poverty.  Amen (And It Is So!)

DAY 2 –

Scripture of the Day:  “Shall I bring to the point of birth and not give delivery?  Or shall I who gives delivery shut the womb?  Says your God.”

Quote of the Day: “Nation Building does not depict a scenario that God Almighty cannot produce in this coeval age.”

Message of the Day:  The natural intellect will block the visualization of the genesis of a new nation.  God (present tense) retains His omniscient status, recognizing the natural and physical conditions that effect all humanity.  Undiminished in power and authority, the omnipotent Father can complete any task that He commands.

Nation Building does not present an unsolvable enigma for God.  He delights in performing a sovereign act with an individual or a small band of people.  Nation Building shall come into formation for those who walk by faith.  The Almighty (present tense) searches to and fro in the earth for those who will trust Him and practice obedience.  Mixing these two elements (trust and obedience) with faith, nothing proposed in the pursuit of full nationhood status will venture outside the sphere of realization.

Prayer of the Day:  Help the people, the least of these, O Lord.  Help them to envision and comprehend the merit of Nation Building as a spiritual step of obedience, not merely a natural act of political defiance.  Dear Lord, penetrate the minds of the people, invade their psyche, and allow their spirit to absorb the content of the message.  Move by Your Spirit among the affluent, enable them to apprehend and appreciate the message of Nation Building.  Amen (And It Is So!)

DAY 3 –

Scripture of the Day:  “But just as it is written, ‘Things which eye has not seen and ear has not heard, And which have not entered the heart of man, All that God has prepared for those who love Him.’” 1 Corinthians 2:9 NASB

Quote of the Day:  “Enactment of Nation Building will demand a paced methodology.  The exertion shall also require the mental, physical, and spiritual equipoise as well as theological soundness to endure the epic strains of a venture of an uncharted marathon.

Message of the Day:  To those of faith, God will continue the revelatory template upon which Divine performances can emanate.   His chosen format will deliver executions that shall exceed the highest degree of the maximum human expectancy.  For the majority of the people (believers and non-believers), Nation Building has not been previously envisioned.  For many others, the subject has never broached an agenda for discussion.  The inner recesses of their heart’s chamber never perceived such an undertaking.  With the magnanimous volume of natural elements inclusive in the composition of a nation, such a Divine afflatus can only be revealed by the Spirit.

Prayer of the Day:  O Lord, I pray the justice seekers, progressive individuals, and skilled laborers will search the Scriptures, finding the Doctrine of Nation Building in unanimity with Your will.  Also my Father, will You stir the imperfect people and the impoverished people to understand that their deliverance will only come from You.  Father, open their eyes that they may see Your revealed desire for them to come out from the midst of this perverse and crooked generation.  Amen (And It Is So!)

DAY 4 –

Scripture of the Day:  “Then God said, ‘Behold, I am going to make a covenant.  Before all your people I will perform miracles which have not been produced in all the earth nor among any of the nations; and all the people among whom you live will see the working of the Lord, for it is a fearful thing that I am going to perform with you.”  Exodus 34:10 NASB

Quote of the Day:  “Prison or post prison labels have all failed to hinder God from employing me. Nation Building will impel the imperfect and the impoverished through negative occurrences, which would otherwise drown them.”

Message of the Day:  Nation Building will present an extraordinary feat for any age.  Nation Building may loom particularly complex with the absence of military might or murderous civil unrest.  The advancement of civilization has compounded the exertion of Nation Building due to global mobilization and new-fashioned technology.  All these factors set the stage for God to reveal Himself.  What appears impossible for humanity’s capability shall remain possible with God.

Prayer of the Day:  Now, O Lord, may You open the eyes of the imperfect and the impoverished people to recognize that only You can bring forth a profound change to the present circumstances and conditions.  Give the imperfect and the impoverished an understanding heart, an unwavering faith, and a courageous spirit in order to see and witness a sovereign move of Your hand.  I pray also, O Lord, that You will supply them with Your peace in order that they may be still and see Your salvation.  Amen (And It Is So!)

DAY 5 –

Scripture of the Day:  “After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count, from every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues.”  Revelation 7:9a NASB

Quote of the Day: “Nation Building will offer an open appeal.  Neither race nor ethnic origin qualifies or disqualifies, Nation Building shall rivet as a vessel or refuge for all who signal for guidance.”

Message of the Day:  The imperfect people and the impoverished people can overcome disenfranchisement and collateral sanctions by exercising faith in God.  Ostracized and/or isolated, these two groups may find commonality on their walk of faith.  Their collective story will arise as they continuously conquer obstacles, which shall result in victories that will become episodes of Divine history.  Longevity of the familiar does not mean that something fresh and compelling on the horizon does not come revealed without a solid history.

Prayer of the Day:  My God, I ask that You bring people from every background and every race to the place of understanding of Your plan and Your design.  Amen. (And It Is So!)

DAY 6 –

Scripture of the Day:  “Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart.” Luke 18:1 NASB

Quote of the Day:  “Effective intercession cannot occur without the presence of authentic compassion.”

Message of the Day:  Individuals, who live and practice covenant, will understand the prerequisite of humility in order to effectively intercede for others.  The abstinence from nutritional substances (food intake) for a designated period of time can only demonstrate one manner of alignment of oneself in a spiritual state of humility.  Nation Builders will be compelled to illustrate humility on more than one dimension.  In the amalgamation of nationhood, it will become necessary to propose and practice abstinence from injustice, rejection of oppression, and refusal of exclusionary practices toward the imperfect people and the impoverished people.

Prayer of the Day:  Dear Father, I call upon you to set forth individuals with a validated compassion to agree in spirit with the Doctrine of Nation Building.  I ask that You will raise up these individuals with a humble spirit and may they walk in the way of humility before You.  Amen.  (And It Is So!)

NATION BUILDER DAILY DEVOTIONAL

DAY 7 –

Scripture of the Day:  “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh; is anything too difficult for Me?” Jeremiah 32:27 NASB

Quote of the Day: “Nation Building shall exceed the realm of theoretical abstract thinking.  Nation Building shall surface as a carefully crafted strategy.  A strategic plan, Nation Building, will solicit participants of faith to directly benefit from personal and straightforward engagement.  The artfully conceived initiative will present a systemic approach that shall redefine wholistic ministry and total service commitment.”

Message of the Day:  Nationhood will only arise as a valid undertaking, if it has the proper alignment with the Holy Scriptures.  Alignment with the Word of God shall provide an unstoppable force.  The imperfect people and the impoverished people; seeking a fresh start (spiritually and naturally), must egress the contemporary religious system and political structure.  Nation Building cannot be perceived as a social aberration, but a wholesome endeavor of faith projected toward those who have grown weary awaiting political change, waiting on others to change, and generally waiting for things to change for the better.

Prayer of the Day:  O Lord, I ask that You bring forth a people who will believe in Nation Building.  Thank You, Jesus.  I pray that You will enlighten those who You have chosen to be able to comprehend the process to achieve nationhood.  May these of Your selection have a learned reliance upon You for the necessary provisions that will be needed to accomplish such a magnanimous feat.  Amen.  (And It Is So!)

NATION BUILDER DAILY DEVOTIONAL

DAY 8 –

Scripture of the Day:  “For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.” Romans 15:4 NASB

Quote of the Day:  “A sustainable outreach to a vast number of hurting souls will require steadfastness of purpose.  In times of difficulty, the source of revitalization must arise from the Word of God.”

Message of the Day:  Relentlessly, Nation Builders must retain focus to build upon the instructions from the Father.  Patiently, they have to evangelize and educate the populace.  The Word of God has to be viewed as a tool of encouragement to construct a composite, which will develop a new order for a people who have never had the opportunity to govern themselves.  Resilience has to emerge as a character trait as a result of the ability to overcome setbacks.  Passion for positive achievement has to become freshly illuminated.

Prayer of the Day:  Bring forth, O Lord, a spiritually discerning people who can understand that new wine shall always demand new wineskins.  Father, make Your Word to come alive in the hearts of the imperfect people and the impoverished people that they may depart from those who oppose Your plan.  Father, make Your Word to come alive in the souls and spirits of the justice seekers, the progressive individuals, and the skilled laborers so that Your Kingdom will come on earth as it is in Heaven.  Amen (And It Is So!)

DAY 9 –

Scripture of the Day:  “Teach me, O Lord, the way of Your statutes, And I shall observe it to the end.”  Psalm 119:33 NASB

Quote of the Day:  “Lofty elitist thinking and pinnacle selectionist governing will never pronounce intentions of power sharing, wealth redistribution, land equity allotment, natural resource equality sharing, or acts of amicableness toward those that they have deemed to be of lesser status.  In these contemporary times, the imperfect people and the impoverished people face in their lives daily symmetrical acts of oppression.  Nation Building ascertains a march by faith that shall defy both logic and natural sense perception.”

Message of the Day:  When a people have been excluded from the economic system and the governance system, the idea of reform will not automatically spawn equality.  Revisions will not always institute systems of equal access to positions that may elevate all people.  The institution of access may indeed connote that some authority figures have decided to dispense a degree of privilege.  The extent of reform will be discretionary and has definitive limits.  What may appear as great strides toward reform in the eyes of the dispenser, may only represent a token to the one who has suffered exclusionary from the enforcement of exclusionary practices.

A holy nation and a royal priesthood cannot thrive and reach full potential in a society of pluralistic permission of worship formats and humanistic governing institutions.  Nationhood that will reflect the image of God among the populace must remain separate from this current wicked and perverse generation.

Prayer of the Day:  I call upon You, Heavenly Father, to birth a nation.  When You birth a nation, You will obtain all the praise and the glory.  In this new nation, may Jesus Christ occupy the preeminence and may the Holy Spirit exercise the role of Chief Architect.  I call upon You, O Lord, with full acknowledgement of Your omnipotent power to call out a

people into full nationhood status will not present to You a difficult task.  The earth is Yours and the fullness that it contains as well as those who dwell upon it.  You, O Lord, have created humanity from one blood and have assigned the boundaries of all people.  Amen.  (And It Is So!)

DAY 10 –

Scripture of the Day:  “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of God stands forever.”  Isaiah 40:6 NASB

Quote of the day:  “A new nation that will be raised up in these coeval times by Your power will represent a miracle to be observed and entered into as a vehicle to transition lives from chaos to peace and from poverty to prosperity.”

Message of the Day:  God’s Word will always illuminate my pathway.  The imperium of His Word will illumine the journey for all those on the pilgrimage toward Nation Building.  The passageway to Nation Building may be open to everyone, but not everyone can stay the course.  Only those persons, who dare to believe God will always reign as a covenant-keeping God, will venture the faith walk into a new dimension.  Nation Builders will always choose to follow the legacy of God’s Word.  His oracles are and have been forever settled in Heaven.  There will not be any amendments to what has proceeded out of His mouth.

Prayer of the Day:  Thank You, O Lord, Our Redeemer, I place my faith in You.  In Your Word, You have promised to make the lame (the imperfect people) a remnant and the outcast (the impoverished people) a strong nation.  Only in You, O Lord, can the weak declare strength and the poor proclaim wealth.  Blessed will be the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance.  Amen.  (And It Is So!).

DAY 11 –

Scripture of the Day: “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Psalm 119:105 NASB

Quote of the Day:  “The contemporary governance apparatus will disqualify an imperfect people’s entrance into commerce and political operations in a meaningful participatory, a capacity that will rise above a minimal level.  Nation Building will make a way for the imperfect people to cease any willing participation in a caste system.  Rejecting camouflaged exclusionary clauses, Nation Building will offer a way of dignity revitalization.”

Message of the Day:  The firm foundation of Nation Building will rest upon the Word of God, a covenant promise from God Almighty.  God promised Abraham that he would become the father of many nations.  The dependency of the imperfect people and the impoverished people arising to nationhood status will originate from an unwavering trust in God.  Undeniably, Christ has to remain unchallenged as the Chief Corner Stone.  These Biblical truths have to serve as essential to all in search of an expressive and meaningful life transformation.  The multitudes shall await exposure to the full benefits of nationhood status.

Prayer of the Day:  Thank You, O Lord, You alone have the capability to change the status of the imperfect people and the impoverished people.  You, O Lord, have made us a nation through Your covenant with Abraham, when You established him as the father of a multitude of nations.  I thank You, O God, for keeping the covenant.  This contemporary age cannot freeze a promise made by You.  Amen (And It Is So!)

DAY 12 –

Scripture of the Day:  “’The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine,’ declares the Lord of Hosts.” Haggai2:8 NASB

Quote of the Day:  “The imperfect people and the impoverished people will face the compulsory objective to re-configure their economic life.  These two groups will find it a necessity to transition from being primarily labeled a consumer to a more aggressive realignment that shall include that as the producer of goods.  Nation Building will not rest upon the control of resources, rather the excellence of stewardship as it shall pertain to the economic life of its citizenry.  Traditional views may take the posture that a nation’s strength can only rest upon its ability to control resources.  Such sentiments will only repeatedly give birth to classism, greed, and wars.”

Message of the Day: Obedience to God shall secure the unshakeable pillar of a nation’s economic life.  The Israelites were an enslaved people, without ownership of a land mass or control of any natural resources.  However, God had provided a plan, which allowed them to egress Egypt as a wealthy people.  God has not forfeited His ability or authority to assign a nation a specific economic life.  He has retained the sovereignty to satisfy the material needs of the people.  Nation Building will never rely on the frenzy of economic projections that can arise from human institutions.  Nation Building will emerge with a trust in the God Who shall supply all of the new nation’s needs according to His riches in Glory.

Prayer of the Day:  I shall call upon You, Lord God Almighty, for it is written, both riches and honor come from you.  You reign over all.  In Your hand is power and might, and Your hand has the ability to make great and give strength unto all.  No other source can match Your power and wisdom to raise a people to achieve Your Divine aim, accomplish Your Divine purpose, and obtain full and prosperous nationhood status.  Amen.

DAY 13 –

Scripture of the Day: “The blessing of the Lord brings wealth, and he adds no trouble to it.”  Proverbs 10:22 NIV

Quote of the Day: “Redistribution of wealth among the people of God only takes place through covenant living, holy living, and a people living in pursuit of conformity to the image of Jesus Christ.  When these elements are enacted, prosperity becomes a group blessing, a national blessing, not solely an individual achievement.”

Message of the Day: The favor of God will produce wealth within a nation and will assure the continuous flow of prosperity.  A prosperous state, will be established by the Father.   A nation that has been established by Him will abound and rest in a setting of peace.  When accumulated wealth has its origin from the Lord God Almighty, He shall supply a prevalent hedge of protection.  No weapon that may be formed against what God has given shall prosper.  A wealthy nation that will serve the Lord in total obedience will be a nation without troubles, a nation whose enemies will be at peace with them.

Prayer of the Day:  Hear my prayer, O Lord, on behalf of the imperfect people and the impoverished people.  Teach us to live for You as You provide for us.  Amen. (And It Is So!)

DAY 15 –

Scripture of the Day:  “And put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.” Ephesians 4:24 NASB

Quote of the Day: “Nation Building will proffer an alternative to the symmetrical acts of oppression.  Withdrawal from the current system will serve as a necessity in order for the excluded to have a bona fide opportunity to engage in productive activities.  Nation Building’s clarion call will not come through small increments of withdrawal from the present norms of contemporary society, but a vertex leap to advance the segments of the people that the current system no longer has valued.  Nation Building will reside as much more than a catharsis.”

Message of the Day: Nation Building will only resonate within the spirits of likeminded people.   The quest for nationhood will demand a determined people who will face opposition with great faith.  The journey will also command a people who will administer resources for the greater good of the imperfect people and the impoverished people.  The practice of a fresh nation shall compel its citizenry to respond to one another with compassion that shall exceed the current demonstration by the coeval dominant authority structure.

No people can progress and thrive without a potent economic system.  Historically, a new economy cannot emerge without a nation of origin.  A nation derived from the Divine authorship will observe imposed limits that shall dissolve in the pathway of righteousness.  New horizons shall become attainable.

Prayer of the Day:  O Lord, I call upon You to clothe this nation of the imperfect people and the impoverished people in righteousness.  Righteousness exalts a nation, while sin is a reproach to any people.  Amen. (And It Is So!)

DAY 16 –

Scripture of the Day: “Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts.  They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts.” Acts 2:46 NIV

Quote of the Day: “Nation Building will never demand the historiographical similitudes of prior evolutions, when the foundational doctrine shall rest upon the preeminence of Christ.”

Message of the Day: With unity invoked and practiced, what was deemed lost shall discover a newfound mastery over former plagues.  Unity will breathe in vision and shall exhale success.  Not looking critically for cracks in another’s armour, unity can seal leaks and will strengthen vulnerable areas.  Unity shall broaden prospective and will narrow the chance of failure. Unity has the power to pour out life as showers and the mercy to absorb shortcomings into a river of opportunity.

Unity will rejoice and shout the victory in advance.  Unity shall enable the imperfect people and the impoverished people to extend an invitation to justice seekers, progressive individuals, and skilled laborers to join in a harmonious refrain: “Peace will be our administrator and righteousness our overseers.  Violence will not be heard in our land, nor devastation or destruction within our borders.  Our walls are salvation and our gates praise.  We will rejoice greatly in the Lord.  Our souls exult in our God!”

Prayer of the Day: Bless the imperfect people and the impoverished people to dwell in unity, seeking the greater good for all.  Amen. (And It Is So!)

DAY 17 –

Scripture of the Day: “…Praising God and enjoying the favor of all people.  And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.”  Acts 2:27 NIV

Quote of the Day: “Loyalty and covenant fade without unity.”

Message of the Day:  The vision of Nation Building will manifest through unity.  Refusing to rely on a plurality of the population, Nation Builders should always stress the significance of unity among those who embrace the pathway to nationhood.  Unity will never insist upon an acceptance by the majority of the populace, but it shall behest an agreement among the committed.  The Lord will respond to the daily display of unity by saving souls, adding to the kingdom of His Son.

Prayer of the Day:  It is written, how pleasant it is when the people dwell together in unity.  Bless, O Lord, Nation Building to represent a covenant living people.  Amen.  (And It Is So!)

DAY 18 –

Scripture of the Day: “Then he said to me, ‘This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel saying, ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts.’” Zechariah 4:6 NASB

Quote of the Day: “Individuals, who may become involved in Nation Building, will often be filled with over the brim enthusiastic vigor; however, nationhood status can disclose a tangible enactment of a planned initiative.  A nation will not come into being through dialectic discourse alone, nor shall the effort fade into “dream only” status due to the presence of serious opposition.”

Message of the Day: In order to egress this current world system, the circumstances shall make compulsory a comprehensive engulfing into the study of the Word of the God as structured in the Bible.  This will inevitably lead to a full appreciation of the intervention into the affairs of humanity by the God of the Bible.

The theological practice of nationhood status will display a contemporary advent of the God of the Bible in an interactive relation with the present day world.  No meaningful spiritual change can hold a remote possibility of impacting the current authority configuration if it will be singly presented as a theological theory.  As a definitive and distinctive body of theological opinion, Nation Building, will set the tone for the proposed change.  The Kingdom of God, the ultimate demonstration of political force, cannot be represented in words only, but power.

Prayer of the Day:  Lord God Almighty, hear the cry of the imperfect people and the impoverished people in Jesus’ name.  Deliver, O Lord, the imperfect, the impoverished, the unchurched, the unlearned, and the unsaved.  They face genocide without knowledge, political suicide without understanding, social irrelevance without awareness, and economic ruin without substance for survival.  Amen.

DAY 19 –

Scripture of the Day: “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15 KJV

Quote of the Day:  “The arrangement of cultural, economic, educational, political, and social interactions will dictate to a people the apropos form, which will establish them as a nation.  This Nation Building will present a framework that can only emerge from formal teachings.  With parts as diverse as those essential to the formation of a nation, precision guidance shall mark the essence for a successful outcome.”

Message of the Day:  Alongside the theological cornerstone, Nation Building will rest upon a keystone of orthodox nurturance.  Nation Building in the 21st Century, for the imperfect people and the impoverished people, will serve as a principle model that cannot be haphazardly approached.  Nationhood status cannot appear to be a random exercise as an attempt to fill a trendy void for some high energy individuals.  Nation Building for the imperfect and the impoverished will require a lot of grunt work.  Nationhood status will present an opportunity to develop a clear path for the imperfect people and the impoverished people.  As a transparent discourse, the formal teachings shall reveal the design, framework, and paragon (the implementation process) to secure nationhood status.  The action steps must be undergirded by faith and sound erudition.  A First Century Theologian was quick to point out, “Faith without works is dead.”  Noah acted in faith, but he also had a design for the ark that shipbuilders of today still revere as the benchmark of the industry.

Prayer of the Day:  All the power, might, sophistication of laws, collateral sanctions, and resources have been on the side of those who have opposed and oppressed the imperfect people and the impoverished people.  These two groups shall form a major portion of the constituency that shall the citizenry into nationhood status.  Lord God, hear my plea for Your intervention against all the forces darkness and spiritual

wickedness in high places who would oppose the advancement of Nation Building.  Dear Lord, I ask that you would equip the Nation Builders to labor and minister without fear, wavering, doubting, unbelief, or double-mindedness. Father, help the unbelief of all who are connected as Nation Builders.  Help us to be convinced by faith in the Word of God that no weapon having been formed against our Nation Building efforts shall prosper.  Amen.

DAY 20 –

Scripture of the Day: “Give instruction to a wise man and he will be still wiser, Teach a righteous man and he will increase his learning.” Proverbs 9:9 NASB

Quote of the Day: “Nation Building is like a culture driven harmony that produces a universally acceptable tune.  The rhythm of experience composes the melody by the sensitivity of hearing, the sentimentality of the emotions, and the spontaneity of impulse, not a current trend or long standing precedent.”

Message of the Day:  Nationhood will insist upon the equity of shared ability.  People, who shall arrive at a harmonious station, can produce results that will applaud the collective potential of the inclusive populace.  A collaborative mindset will provide the ingenuity to make substantial gains possible.  Nationhood will necessitate a strong infrastructure that has the capability to support the cultivation and the nurture of a people who have been disposed of the opportunity to make vast contributions to the totality of humanity.

Through the turnstile of faith, the imperfect people and the impoverished people form a constituency that can remove all limitations in order to arrive at the destination of a Theocratic Interdependent Peaceful Society.  The achievement of nationhood status in the 21st Century will exclaim a remarkable feat.  It will reverberate more than simple defiance, but the birth of a new cultural, economic, political, social, and theological expression through nationhood status.  Nationhood will demonstrate the unlimited capacity of a united people with a constructive mindset that will outweigh a simple rebellious act.  The imperfect people and the impoverished people, who have never had the opportunity to govern themselves, will find this special occasion through Nation Building.

Prayer of the Day:  Dear Lord, pour our Your Spirit upon the imperfect people and the impoverished people without measure.  Release into their spirit, O Lord, extraordinary wisdom.  Amen. (And It Is So!)

DAY 21 –

Scripture of the Day: “For which one of you, when he wants to build a tower, does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see if he has enough to complete it?” Luke 14:28 NASB

Quote of the Day:  “A Nation Builder should recognize the adventure that has been wrapped in the nationhood scenario.  To launch such an initiative, it will require an unbridled imagination coupled with relentless courage; then it must become a faith driven obsession that has morphed into a mission that ultimately has converted into a ministry.”

Message of the Day:  Nationhood status will exemplify an expedition that has matured outside narcissistic ideals.  Material acquisitiveness cannot shape the dream of a path to establish a nation neither can personal accumulations serve as the essential benchmark of self-worth.  Wealth alone will not be able to reflect the value of the collective effort to proclaim nationhood.  Nation Building has the mechanisms within its infrastructure to assure all who will embark upon the adventure a positive role.  Nation Building can turn a positive obsession into a mission of peace and prosperity due to truth having been established as the foundation.  Faith can unlock the imagination in order for a Nation Builder to visualize the outcome beyond the limits that may have been imposed by the ruling administrations, contemporary governance, present orders, or policy makers.

Prayer of the Day:  Heavenly Father, please grant the free flow of wisdom to the Nation Builders to analyze each level of resistance that shall be encountered.  Equip the Nation Builders with extraordinary wisdom by Your Spirit, so that each phase of Nation Building will be met with the apropos decision to come into full alignment with Your will and purpose.  Amen.

DAY 22 –

Scripture of the Day: “By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible.”  Hebrews 11:3

Quote of the Day: “Nationhood shall summon the imperfect people and the impoverished people to a status that will concatenate them by a common characteristic and mutual interest.”

Message of the Day:  People, who have embarked upon covenant living, have learned to build a strong link that will uplifts and supports others as they go through tests and trials.  The segment of the populace, who have learned to walk by faith, will hold success for all engaged in a covenant bond as their primary objective.

A nationhood status survey should reveal goals met, outcomes celebrated, conundrums solved, and all circumstances conquered by a continuum practice of the “Collective Genius.”  This shall serve as the environment whereby the people have found as a place to coalesce.

Faith shall provide a large enough umbrella to shelter all without an intrusion on territorial boundaries.  The tent has the capacity to expand even further through faith.  Faith will serve as the key that can unlock the series of links that has the power to keep each individual strong.

Prayer of the Day:  Dear Lord, fulfill the practice of the “Collective Genius” in the people destined for nationhood.   I ask that You would also fill the nationhood citizenry with humble spirits.  Grant them grace to live by faith.  Amen. (So It Is So!)

DAY 23 –

Scripture of the Day:  “Where there is no vision, the people perish:” Proverbs 29:18a KJV

Quote of the Day: “I perceive Nation Building as a mission filled with provocative facets.  The more impressive the goal, the stronger the pull should be to run with the vision.  The deeper you explore its foundation, the clearer the vision’s demand.  Nationhood formation will make sense as a doable undertaking.”

Message of the Day:  A nonconformist’s ideology must be rooted in something other than emotion and discomfort, resulting from a direct action.  Nation Building must be recognized as the conveyance of a message and the conduit for those engaged in the nationhood process to emerge fulfilled.  Nationhood should never become synonymous with being another “rally moment.”

Nation Building will lead the imperfect people and the impoverished people to a Theocratic Interdependent Peaceful Society.  The deeper that you begin to explore the Biblical foundation of Nation Building the clearer the vision of a covenant living nation will arise.  In relationship to a theocratic heritage, an interdependent citizenry shall emerge to illuminate a peaceful society free of any desires to replicate the discriminatory ways of the current dominant powers.

Prayer of the Day:  O Lord, open the eyes of the imperfect people and the impoverished people that they may see Your vision of redemption and prosperity.  Amen. (And It Is So!)

DAY 24 –

Scripture of the Day:  “…He lifts the needy from the ash heap.” 1 Samuel 2:8b

Quote of the Day: “Prisons may hold the undesirables and outcasts of society.  Penal colonies leverage the unconscionable parallel to society’s junk pile of humanity, but HE shall lift me from this stockpile of obscure human misfortune.”

Message of the Day:  Anytime an individual may land in a situation of powerlessness, isolation will create vacuums.  A state of powerlessness should not automatically transpose an individual to a condition of hopelessness.  These circumstances may at times intertwine; yet, retain the same two remarkable positive thirsts: power and hope.

The dissimilarities may have blended through resilience to form improbable allies.  Power can arrive as a result of unflinching hope.  In the midst of the ash heap of life, the needy can possess an ingrained stoutness and sturdiness.  Hope can stem from faith that one may rise from the ash heap of life in spite of the visible conditions.  In the absence of visible resources, faith can project the pathway to Nation Building.  Faith that has a sure connection to the Almighty can produce a conduit that will uplift the individuals who have been labeled as the discarded of society.

Prayer of the Day:  Have mercy, O Lord, demonstrate Your compassion and mercy by redeeming the hopeless and the powerless from the societal ash heap.  Reveal, O Lord, Your omnipotence by extending grace to the impotent.  Empower, O Lord, the imperfect people and the impoverished people, who are in need of a refuge.  Help the people to hold steadfastly to hopefulness while they have to endure a powerlessness circumstance. In the name of Jesus, amen. (And It Is So!)

DAY 25 –

Scripture of the Day: “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1 NASB

Quote of the Day: “Like the Holy Scriptures contained in the Bible, nationhood (Doctrine of Nation Building) is a practical volume.  Those, who only peruse the table of content, fail to dissect the message.”

Message of the Day: The power should reside in the message.  Above energizing the argument for social order re-construction, nationhood has cemented its roots in theology and faith.  Nationhood will present practical action steps to carry into execution solvable actions to conundrums and riddles.  Nationhood will also proffer solutions that have paralyzed the less educated, the less prosperous, and the less powerful elements (constituencies) of society.  Nationhood, not only can reclaim, it can also retool.

Prayer of the Day:  O Lord, break the stronghold of ignorance that may prevent the people from learning about all that You have made available for them in Christ.  Amen. (And It Is So!)

DAY 26 –

Scripture of the Day: “Then His own arm brought salvation to Him, And His righteousness upheld Him.” Isaiah 59:16b NASB

Quote of the Day: “Ideologies (brainwashing techniques) and armies (enforcers of ideas) are tools men wield to establish nations.  The use of force (subtle or indiscriminate) is the caveat dominant powers employ to institutionalize ideas.  I make my stand on the Word of God and His promises to declare Nation Building.”

Message of the Day:  In spite of all the apostrophizing and the rendering of dictums, the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness of its content.  Also, the silver and gold belong to Him.  He alone sets the boundaries of all its inhabitants.  I believe Biblical nationhood emergence will indeed manifest in the 21st Century.

I speak the Language of Faith.  Where corruption and injustice stake claim to power, God chooses what is not (a new nation, non-existent nationhood) to nullify what exists (current power structures, contemporary governance systems).

Prayer of the Day:  May You, O Lord, send help from Your sanctuary and support from Zion!  Amen. (And It Is So!)

DAY 27 –

Scripture of the Day: “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment.  He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”  1 John 4:18 KJV

Quote of the Day: “The perennial mindset that has been arbitrarily set as the prevalent standard insists that all individuals must learn to play in the existing system.  Without compliance, there will remain little or no hope of success.  Furthermore, this coeval system can offer the premier status.  It has the control over all propaganda tools.  Inclusion may seem the only realistic goal.  Nation Building will solemnly refute all such claims.”

Message of the Day:  Nationhood has a fixed evolution of thought.  Nation Building has not arisen as a whimsical expression of un-validated political jargon.  Nationhood will enable an individual or an identifiable populace to rise above the quagmire of despair.  Nationhood will proffer a hope and a quality of life that can prevail outside the visible power structure.

Nation Building will command courage to venture beyond the visible structure.  Fear has torment.  Fear may also neutralize potential and can paralyze the will.  In order to produce meaningful change, an individual or a group cannot help but exercise the courage to resist consternation.

Prayer of the Day:  Dear Father, supply the imperfect people and the impoverished people with Your strength, empower them to move in Your perfect love.  Bless them to overcome trepidation.  Anoint them with the fire of the Holy Ghost so that they are not frozen with fear, refusing to participate in the Divine providence of nationhood status.  Amen. (And It Is So!)

DAY 28 –

Scripture of the Day: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.”  Proverbs 3:5,6 NASB

Quote of the Day: “From the depth of an incarcerated state, I had learned to lean on my faith.  Within me, there had been imbued the design of an invincible nation, birthed by the Spirit of the Father.  Because of my trust in Him, I have been cloaked as a Nation Builder.”

Message of the Day:  As a Nation Builder, I shall work diligently on developing a clear message, a communication that will allow the entrapped to recognize the power in nationhood status.  I shall not speak empty rhetoric or political fanaticism, nor will I seek to conjure up nationalistic fervor (or ethnic pride).  My goal shall remain to establish a road to realistic accomplishment through the implementation of Biblical justice.

As a Nation Builder, I have the mission to create a systematic thrust that will cover cultural, economic, philosophical, political, social, and theological parallels.  At the contemporary ebb, God will still honor faith.  Having faced the coeval furnace of affliction (personal imprisonment), I had to retain faith that citizenry could surface to populate a nation based on righteousness.  The eternal destiny and the present prosperity of the imperfect people and the impoverished people rest within the message of Nation Building.  The proclamation of nationhood has no error as if another Gospel, but it has every goal of the exaltation of Jesus as King of kings.

Prayer of the Day:  O Lord, open the eyes of the people that they may grasp the commitment and completeness of the message of Nation Building.  Amen.  (And It Is So!)

DAY 29 –

Scripture of the Day: “Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.” Romans 11:5 KJV

Quote of the Day: “Like the Apostle Paul, I love my people, my kinsmen according to the flesh.  I am willing to go the distance to make a difference.  I am willing to perform all that is possible within my God given talents that they might be saved.  My compassion cannot end with my kinsmen only.  I have a message that burns within my spirit to reach all the imperfect people and all the impoverished people with a message of Nation Building.”

Message of the Day:  Brothers and Sisters, my heart’s desire and my prayer to God for the imperfect people, the impoverished people, and my kinsmen, male and female, according to the flesh, is that they all will receive salvation.  For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him.

Prayer of the Day:  O Lord, anoint me as a soul winner and appoint me to gain a tithe and offering of the unchurched, unlearned, and unsaved souls of all races, creeds, and colors.  Empower me with the extraordinary wisdom to win a tithe and offering of the souls of my kinsmen, male and female, according to the flesh.  For it is not Your will that any should perish.  Amen.  (And It Is So!).

DAY 30 –

Scripture of the Day: “…The desolation of many generations…” Isaiah 61:4d NASB

Quote of the Day: “I cannot abandon (a leadership role) (in) the march from this current system into a new nation due to the absence of a ring solvent to conventional wisdom.  To settle in a state of incertitude would be ludicrous; especially, when a palatable option has been made known to exist.”

Message of the Day:  Nationhood, sought by faith and Divine power, may emerge in a day or all at once.  No definable explanation can hold back a people marching by faith.  The infrastructure that has its genesis in faith shall command the imperfect people and the impoverished people to quit praying and start moving toward nationhood.  The desolations of multiple generations has deteriorated to the coeval status, but past failures or shortcomings should not instinctually constitute a continuous languishing in the abyss of hopelessness, despair, and third (or forth) class citizenship designation.  Nationhood status shall await those who have the faith to courageously egress their present condition.

Prayer of the Day:  The imperfect people and the impoverished people did not arrive at the point of barrenness overnight, but by Your Grace, they can depart the dismal situation in the midst of deep darkness.  A night exodus can occur as a result of a people trusting Your message that describes the action steps that will assure a triumphant and prosperous outcome.  In Jesus’ name, amen.  (And It Is So!)

DAY 31 –

Scripture of the Day: “open your mouth, judge righteously, And defend the rights of the afflicted and needy.” Proverbs 31:9 NASB

Quote of the Day: “The imperfect people and the impoverished people have shouldered more than their fair share of the economic and the social woes.  A new nation (established upon righteousness) will provide an occasion to alleviate much of the tempest.”

Message of the Day:  Any new paradigm will face the possibility of misrepresentation.  The reigning order will perceive a potential paragon as a source of perplexity and vexation.  Each foundational precept will undergo felicitous attestment.  A high intensity of excoriation shall demand an astute articulation of the message.

          The call to nationhood status shall require thought and skill to achieve resolution.  The effort will call for a life and system change.  This model shall eclipse a cry for a mere regime change.  Nationhood shall demand that an individual will undergo reorientation.  By so imposing personal responsibility and lifestyle re-alignment, the endeavor shall exceed a simplistic emotional movement.  Although passion will arise as a definitely valued by-product, this worthy enterprise will impact commerce activity, cultural perception, political balance, social interaction, and theological alignment.

Prayer of the Day:  Reveal to the people, O Lord, not to fear what is new, but to unwaveringly trust You – because eye has not seen, ear has not heard, nor has it entered the hearts of men all that You have prepared for those who love You.  Amen.  (And It Is So!)
