DID YOU KNOW THAT AMERICA IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE IN THE WORLD, GOD HAS BLESSED THIS COUNTRY WITH SO MUCH BEAUTY WHILE SATAN IS WORKING HARD TO DESTROY THE BEAUTY OF AMERICA. I LOVE TO TRAVEL AND LOOK AT THE BEAUTY OF THE MOUNTAINS, LAKES, RIVERS, BUT UNFORTUNELY AMERICA IS BEING OVER RUN BY EVIL AND THEY ARE DESTROYING OUR BEAUTY. LET'S PRESERVE OUR NATIONAL RESOURCES AND LET'S BRING JESUS BACK TO AMERICA. AFTER ALL LET'S SHARE THIS BEAUTY WITH OUR CHILDREN.
The Rocks Cry Out
In the Gospel of Luke, we see the story of Jesus' triumphal entry into Bethany, near the Mount of Olives. As he entered the town, riding on a donkey colt, his disciples began to praise and worship Jesus, but the rulers of that town did not like this. Scripture tells us the story like this: "When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen: 'Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!' 'Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!' Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, 'Teacher, rebuke your disciples!' 'I tell you,' he replied, 'if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out."---Luke 19:37-40 NIV
This passage tells us of how the glory of God's kingdom can never be silenced. Praise and worship to him will continue for eternity. All of creation proclaims the glory of God. The rocks are an example that Jesus uses to illustrate this point. Although the rocks cannot literally cry out, he essentially says that even if his followers are made to keep quiet about their faith in him and who he is, even the rocks will bear witness of his glory and give him praise.
The Heavens Declare His Glory
Scripture even tells us that the heavens declare God's glory. When we think of the word, "heavens," we think of just heaven itself, or maybe even the sky. No, the heavens is actually a term used to mean the cosmos, the entire universe, and everything beyond that. In essence, ALL of creation. The stars, the moon, the sun, the planets and galaxies also bear witness to the glory of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard."---Psalm 19:1-3 NIV
Even the heavens proclaim that Jesus is Lord, and they sing praises to him daily. They bear witness to his goodness, holiness, and majesty. Even Nehemiah the prophet acknowledged that God is the creator of the heavens and the earth, and that all creation worships God. He says, "You alone are the LORD. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all the starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you."---Nehemiah 9:6 NIV
Nehemiah realizes that God made everything, and that the beauty of the world bears witness to everything that God is. He also says that the multitudes of heaven worship God. This refers to the angels, but even they praise him. They are part of his creation as well.

Let's not forget the blood that was shed for this great nation. Let's not forget the men and women that have died and made the sacrifice so we can have the freedom to love, to worship, and to excercise our faith.FlyHigh Ministries salutes all the soldiers who have made such a sacrifice. Let's not forget the Sacrifice that Jesus made on the Cross that allowed us to have fellowship with the Father.
1John 4:9-10 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we love God, but that He love us and sent His Son as an atoning Sacrifice for our sins.
