INDEPENDENCE DAY SERMON OUTLINES

Today ... as we celebrate the 228th birthday of our nation ... join me in the Old Testament book of 2 Chronicles. And once there, turn to chapter 7. Years ago one of our American submarines sank off the eastern coast. Divers attempted to rescue them and when they went down, they could hear the survivors tapping on the side of that submarine in Morse Code. They were tapping a question: ''Is there any hope? Is there any hope?'' And...

We are on the third lesson of the series of messages entitled ''America In Crisis.'' Today the message is in the form of a question, ''Should God Have A Place In Government?'' There are two extremes on this issue. There are those who would say that God should have no place at all in government. There are those who would say on the other hand that God should run government...

Last week I was in Philadelphia to speak for Promise Keepers and I flew in early since I had never been there before so I could spend some time sightseeing. I love American history and I went to see Betsy Ross' home, the gravesite of Benjamin Franklin, the Liberty Bell and then for me the grand Finale-Independence Hall-the place where both the Declaration...

A December 12, 2003 article from the Associated Press contained the headline: ''God Is Back in 'God Bless the USA.''' The story was about the Pacifica High School in Oxnard, California. In the finale of a school program, a 200 voice choir was to sing Lee Greenwood's patriotic anthem ''God Bless the USA.'' However, the program's directors, fearing that using the...

We live in a free country. Our freedom is no accident. It is God-given. However, it has been preserved by brave men and women who have sacrificed their very lives so that we might remain free. With all of my heart I pray that we might continue to enjoy this great freedom -- that our children and grandchildren may know and experience the joy...

William Wallace asked the right question. If you saw the movie Braveheart, you know the story of the Scottish patriot. Mel Gibson directed and starred in the 1995 movie about the Scottish revolt in the 1400's. At one point in the movie, Wallace prepares a rag tag band of rebels for battle. They must face a...

I think we understand that music is a big part of the celebrations we have in America. On special holidays we always have music, both secular and sacred. As we celebrate our independence on the Fourth of July, music is a vital part of that celebration as well. We have anything from Lone Star and Sarah Evans, all the way up to the Boston Pops. We sing…

Our Freedom in Christ! Galatians 4:31 says, 'We are FREE.'' Then in chapter 5, ''Stand fast, therefore, IN THE FREEDOM wherewith Christ hath MADE us free, and be not ENTANGLED again with the yoke of bondage.'' We are free! Christ made us free! Be not entangled again! Verse 31: ''So, then, brethren, we are not children of the BOND-woman...

America has enjoyed the signature blessings of the Lord. God has blessed America. America has born the fruits of the kingdom at times. A great gleaning needs to be done in our society to gather and groom those spiritual qualities inherent in our emergence as a nation. When the virtues of our young nation are mentioned there are those who seek to deny a...

The Psalm you have the prayer of a patriot. Here's a man praying for his nation. And he's praying for revival. I want to tell you I make no apology whatsoever for being a red-blooded, flag-waving American patriot. I believe it is logical, I believe it is reasonable, I believe it is Biblical to be patriotic. A roving reporter came up to a man on the street and said…

Deep within the heart of all of us, there is an innate desire and longing for freedom. But to be honest, we all, at some time or another, have been in bondage. We are born into sin and sin creates bars around our soul that we cannot break through. There is no hope to free ourselves from this prison. There is no amount of effort or...

In the summer of 1776, the Second Continental Congress was meeting in Philadelphia at the Pennsylvania State House (later called Independence Hall). On June 7, Richard Henry Lee of Virginia stood and read his resolution: ''Resolved: That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States, that they...

It does my heart good to know that we're a church that not only teaches boys and girls the Word of God, but we also teach them to be patriots, to love our country, and to honor our flag. Amen? We need to give the Lord a hand of praise for that. I'd like to just give the invitation but I want to read to you from God's Word this...

As Mrs Whyte starts the recitation she looks around the room, 'I pledge allegiance to the flag........', when her eyes are drawn to Andy who has his hand over the right cheek of his bottom. Andy, I cannot continue till you put your hand over your heart,' she demands. Andy looks up and replies, 'It is over my heart.' After several more...

This Friday we will celebrate ''Independence Day.'' On July 4th, 1776, 56 of the bravest men who ever lived, signed the document known as ''The Declaration of Independence,'' declaring independence from King George III and the government of England. That document, as we know, came to be the steppingstone for the...

Music is always a part of our national celebrations. At Thanksgiving we have - Come Ye Thankful People Come and Count Your Many Blessings. Christmas is always a time of beautiful music which celebrates the holiday and the season of the year. We have our Jingle Bells and Away in a Manger. We have White Christmas and...

Turn please to Psalm 85, if you would. In just a moment we're going to look at verses four through six. I preached to you in the last message when we were together about the critical situation in our land today. We may be on the brink of a world holocaust. Many of us feel that we are very close to the Rapture of the church and the...

The first church I pastored was the First Baptist Church of Erwin, North Carolina. Not far from that little town in North Carolina is a historic Presbyterian church. In fact, it’s one of the oldest Presbyterian churches in America, it’s founding date prior to the Revolutionary War. The name of that church is the Barbeque Presbyterian Church. You just...

2nd Chronicles 7:14 makes it clear that Israel would only be healed when their hearts were humbled, their lips opened in prayer, their eyes turned toward the Lord, and their lives turned away from sin. "If my people, who are called by my name, will humbles themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, THEN will I hear…

Across America today we are honoring our Fathers. In fact since 1922 the third Sunday in June has been set aside to pay tribute to our Fathers. But for many Father's Day has become a game of hide and seek.Take your Bible and turn please to the book of Judges. And once you find the book of Judges look if you will to...
