When God called Moses to rescue millions of Israelites from slavery in superpower Egypt, Moses asked how he (being a lowly shepherd) would accomplish such an impossible task.
“And God said to Moses, What is that in your hand? And he said, a shepherd’s staff.”Exodus 4:2
God doesn’t ask us to do great things alone. He provides a way. Anvóy is a tool, like the staff in Moses’ hand, that when used in combination with God’s supernatural power and ancient wisdom brings freedom and blessing. It is a lever arm that empowers common people to achieve far more good than they ever thought possible. The only requirement is that we be willing to trust God enough to use the tool.
Anvóy is a Mission
This world is not our permanent home, but we received many blessings from our parents and want to pass them on to our children. We have also seen far too much unnecessary pain and suffering throughout history and want to prevent future generations from making the same mistakes. With God’s help, and by working together on this Anvóy platform, we can do both!
Many small things add up. A nation is the sum of the virtue of its people. People are the sum of their beliefs, actions and inaction. Anvóy is also a vision to build a God-honoring social network platform that empowers “we the people” to do many “little things” better and thus create a brighter future!
In other words, this process is “organic” or “bottom up,” not “top down.” A powerful, centralized government can not impose morality onto the people. The only way to improve the nation is for the people to improve themselves. Only a change in the hearts of many citizens can lead to better government and a blessed nation.
The key to this process is “we the people,” not the people in power, or some organization or institution. It is the solemn duty of each and every one of us.
Believing in a More Perfect Union
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”The Preamble to the United States Constitution
The critically important work of forming and refining our nation is not done. Our founders knew that America was not “perfect.” That is why they included in the Constitution clearly defined ways to improve it. Over the years, we have made it better by adding key Amendments to the Constitution, but there are still problems that need to be solved. Although these improvements are difficult to achieve, we can, must and will succeed.
Why Real Progress is Difficult
“And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”John 3:19 KJV
It is easy to blame others for our problems, but if we are to be honest, we are often part of the problem. Sometimes the problem is us, not them. We can be our own worst enemies, because we are all born with a sinful nature. That is one of the main reasons why becoming a good person or nation is an uphill battle — but that is not the only reason. We also have a spiritual adversary: a very real, supernatural enemy.
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”1 Peter 5:8 KJV
Fortunately, the Bible also says that “greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” With God’s help we can win this huge, cultural tug-of-war between good and evil.
Overcoming Evil with Good
Romans 12:21 (KJV) says “Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.” What or who is evil? Is it the globalist elites who dream of consolidating totalitarian power in a One World Government? Is it a political party? Is it our neighbors down the street?
There are a few “bad apples” in every bunch. There are people who have been corrupted by the love of money, power and pleasure. It is especially unfortunate when these types get into leadership positions where they are able to manipulate and harm others, but it is important to realize that most people are not our enemy. Most normal people just want “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
We are in a spiritual battle between good and evil, but many people on the wrong side mean well but have simply been misinformed and misled. They are being used as pawns. If we can take power away from Washington DC and the insider elites, and give it back to the people, we can redeem neighbors and communities. We can win the cultural tug-of-war by convincing those closest to us to switch to our side. The first step to succeeding in this is understanding the challenge we face. See Understanding the Problem.
“This might be our last chance to overcome the lies that divide and mislead us. “We the people” must return to God, listen to and forgive one another, and reunite ourselves as a sovereign nation.”Bob Huber
