SAVE AMERICA Ministries
An AMERICAN LIGHTHOUSE
The mission and mantel of SAVE AMERICA Ministries is to WOO and to WARN a nation nearing moral and spiritual shipwreck.
SAVE AMERICA is a BEACON of HOPE to a nation wallowing in the tempestuous seas of spiritual distress.
SAVE AMERICA is a BRIGHT LIGHT or VOICE to the Church, declaring VISION for the nation.
SAVE AMERICA presents a message both positive and negative. It produces great hope in those who heed it. It causes others to recoil in horror as they reject it.
SAVE AMERICA delivers a message that produces RESPONSE. People either heed it, or ignore it. Either is response.
SAVE AMERICA seeks not to PLEASE but to PROVOKE to righteousness, reconciliation, and repentance…spiritual course correction.
SAVE AMERICA must either DECLARE or DOUSE its light. To diminish the clarity, directness, or intensity of the message is to abandon both calling and purpose as a lighthouse.
SAVE AMERICA declares a message that must pierce the night of all American darkness, wooing and warning a religious yet unrighteous people seeking heaven but courting hell on the near edge of Christ’s Second Coming!
|A LIGHTHOUSE is a BEACON of WARNING
|The very existence of a lighthouse reveals great danger lurking within the sphere of its base and beam. Failure to heed its message can spell disaster for a careless captain or crew. A mighty ship, once proudly churning the seas is suddenly humbled and destroyed simply by failure or refusal to heed its simple warning.
|A LIGHTHOUSE is a BEACON of HOPE
|The beacon light from the lighthouse pierces the frightening fog and the enshrouding darkness. The first glimmer of its rays both woos and warns. The warmth of its light woos the weary sailor with the hope of land and promise of safe harbor. But the same light warns of destruction if unheeded. To the careful sailor who would correct course, it is a beacon of hope. But to the casual and careless, it may become a beacon of horror.
|A LIGHTHOUSE is both POSITIVE and NEGATIVE
|To the careful captain and crew, the warning of the beacon that pierces the darkness is welcome, perceived as protection and guiding to a place of safety. To the careless and arrogant captain and crew, the mere suggestion of course correction is an affront to pride and personal experience. Whether the message beaming from the lighthouse is deemed positive or negative, warning or hope, is purely a matter of attitude. Viewpoint will likely determine destiny.
|A LIGHTHOUSE will produce RESPONSE…either to HEED or IGNORE
|The message beamed across the water to passing ships is not neutral. The pulsing light calls for decision. The facts are clear. The ambit of danger is real. The message requires response. Land and looming shoals cannot change course. The captain and crew must choose to heed or ignore. Either is a response. To heed is to avoid calamity and embrace hope to attain the desired destination. To ignore is to tempt destruction and put all hope at risk.
|A LIGHTHOUSE seeks not to PLEASE but to PROVOKE
|A lighthouse exists to declare light to ships in darkness. It stands unique among men and society. There are few of them. It is put in place for a salutary purpose… to woo and to warn the weary or wandering. Its purpose is not to please but to provoke to action. Its message may require immediate or emergency course correction. It does not pander to feelings or personal or corporate predilections. Its declaration is sure and without compromise.
|A LIGHTHOUSE must either DECLARE or DOUSE its light
|The lighthouse has a single message. It does not teach sailors to navigate or how to power their journey but how to avoid destroying their intended journey. By blazing its beacon, it declares its message. By reducing its intensity or diminishing its light, it douses its message. A lighthouse that does not boldly blaze its message is an agent of deception. It becomes a house of destruction, notwithstanding its pristine outward appearance. Its moderated message lulls some to deadly inaction while others to deadly action.
