Encourage Each Other in the Truth

Encourage is the “E” in R.E.C.I.P.E.

What did you think about history class back in school?  I am willing to bet your answer to that question has much to do with how the material was presented to you.  If you had lists of dates and events to memorize, then undoubtedly, history was dry and boring.  However, if you were invited into the stories, and shared the exciting lives of those who God used to shape our country, your experience was likely far different. 

history through stories

Regardless of your experience in history class, we want to provide hope to the modern-day Patriot of our nation and one key ingredient of our recipe for saving America is that we would all learn and be encouraged by the incredible stories of our national history and enjoy hearing and seeing the way God worked in amazing ways to provide for, and often to deliver, Americans from the threat of trouble.  There are remarkable stories to tell about how God has worked throughout our history, and even that He is still working today.  It is our hope that in this way we can encourage patriots to see this is not the first time America has found herself threatened by those who hate her.  God has delivered us many times before and He can certainly do it again! 

WHere’s the hope?

Over the last couple years, we have seen the American form of government attacked by those who hate it and those who would destroy our freedom.  We have also seen, however, amazing stories that have clearly shown that many American people still retain that fight in their heart that has always defined our nation.  We have seen business owners defy tyrannical “orders” by government officials that were far outside their legitimate authority.  We have seen County Sheriffs step up to fulfill their role of resisting unlawful “orders” and standing in the gap to protect citizens in their counties.  We have seen Pastors stand up for the religious freedom of their churches.  We have seen parents who have said “Enough is enough” and are standing up to school boards who have inserted everything from Marxism to pornography into the curriculum and lesson plans of their children.  There are tons of great things happening all around us!  There are also countless stories throughout our history that demonstrate how God works on behalf of those who love Him.  Our nation and form of government was built on the assumption that Americans would be knowledgeable participants in our government.  So, these stories of Americans standing up for what is right – these stories are not revolutionary – they are the way this nation was designed to work. 

who are you listening to?

We can know for certain that the mainstream media will not be covering these encouraging stories, because these things run counter to their evil agenda for our nation.  We want to tell these stories, and point you to other resources that also tell these stories, so you don’t just sit there thinking there is nothing encouraging out there!   But since there are two completely different narratives being presented to us now, we have to decide which we will allow to shape our perception of what is going on.  If I watch the news all day and allow their lies to dominate my thoughts, they will not present the good things that are happening and I will be discouraged.  If I look instead for the truth of what God is doing in the lives of His people, and allow myself to think about God’s faithfulness and to see the evidence of it all around me, then my life will be much happier and I will be far more prepared to stand up for what is right and stand against what is wrong in this country! 

We hope you will enjoy the content you will find on PatriotsHope.com.  We hope you will be encouraged at the amazing ways God has provided for our nation over and over again!  We also hope you will join us in prayer that He will do that for us again today! 

For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.

Psalm 33:4

    Hi I have been spending a little time on your site, VERY nice job! I like all of it 🙂
    I have been thinking about something similar to your “where to start” section, which is at the bottom of the page on encouraging each other in truth. I wonder if there is a way to cross pollinate some solid Biblical/conservative groups to build momentum. For example a few that we love and support are “The American Story” podcast (https://theamericanstorypodcast.org/) and My Faith Votes. https://www.myfaithvotes.org/

    Again thanks for putting your great site together!

    Jason, this was nicely put together. Addressing the above comment, ‘American Campfire Revival’ brings together three great disciplines that have the same goal of changing the direction the United States of America is headed. Kirk Cameron, Mark Meckler, and Rick Green respectively represent American Campfire, Convention of States, and Patriot’s Academy. Praise God for their united efforts to bring healing under the leadership and recognition of God. I have noted the Old Testament ups and downs of God’s Chosen People is now taking place with disciples of Christ. Let us unite in prayer under God’s love, grace, and glory. as we repent of our wrong doing.

      Thank you for your comment! Yes, the stories of great Americans from the past need to be told. It is amazing also how God has worked in the history of this nation. If we tell those stories from the past, it encourages us because we see what God has done and it is then much easier to see that if we turn from our sinful ways, He may choose to rescue us once again. Thank you again!
