Despite the ongoing onslaught of lies the progressives promote against the truth concerning anything, including American history, the United States of America was founded upon Judeo/Christian Ethics. In many circles, there was a heavy emphasis on the blessed leadership, protection, wisdom and mercy of God almighty, through his son Christ Jesus. Great men of adventure, dating all the way back to Christopher Columbus dedicated land in this hemisphere to the God of Abraham, Isaic and Jacob. As time progressed, there came to the fore a series of events that would build toward what would later become the United States of America.
Such a venture was an almost non-stop cascade of herculean actions which took an unlimited amount of faith, grit and intelligence to accomplish. There were also the horrendously scorched summers that the Europeans were not accustomed to. In addition, many of the first wave of early pilgrim settlers were wiped out through disease, starvation and bad decisions until wisdom finally prevailed and changed their fortunes and halted their demise.
Sometime later, 56 men gathered in Independence Hall in Philadelphia and said “no more”! of the boot heel of tyranny under Britain’s King George and declared independence. As a result, there was a collective wave of laughter throughout the British Empire. After all, Great Britain was the world’s super power at the time. So it was unfathomable to those in England that those colonial rabble rousers could present much of a challenge to the mighty Brits.
However there were four things the Founding Fathers of the United States possessed that the proud red coats did not seem to poses or exhibit.
2.) Sense of purpose
4.) Mission of Liberty
For just as during the time of the prophet Nehemiah, there were those lousy skeptics and discouragers who sought to prevail against what some might describe as a rendezvous with destiny. As the men focused more on the job at hand than the irritant discouragers, they prevailed, setting yet another example of not giving in to those who oppose what you are destined to achieve. You can refer to Nehemiah 2: 17 to 20 in the Amplified or King James version.
Of course, Nehemiah and his friends rebuilt the wall of Jerusalem. They clearly were victorious. But eventually, the glory of their victory faded into a defeat for their nation. Primarily, because the people turned away from God, who was their source of success. In addition to that mistake, the parents and others including national leaders did not properly pass on the concept of victorious living to the succeeding generations. Throughout the annals of history, mankind has either experienced or caused revival then fell away to defeat or decline, followed by revival again, then yet another tumbling away from the greatness of victorious living. Yet we were meant to be continuously victorious in living all aspects of greatness, victory and positive achievement, not just a partial life of existence.
For example there is more to salvation than simply being saved from satan’s vow of damnation with him. Much like the founding fathers did, I believe God wants us to live complete lives of continuous advancement, vitality, victory and liberty, which they understood comes from our creator. Our liberty and unalienable rights do not come from government or bastardized rights called civil rights either, no matter what certain people may say.
But despite the mangled mess of today, I believe our republic will arise from her current moral, economic, political, educational and spiritual stupor. Even though America is currently in a seemingly bottomless pit of decline, believe it or not there is much hope. First of all, God wants us to do away with the curse of mediocracy that breeds stagnation for both individuals and the nation as a whole.
We don’t have to hold on to the brokenness that has led to the prevailing scourge of mediocracy that has led to stagnation, decline and pervasive misery. Just as the Founding Fathers and the people of ancient Israel turned to God, especially after making wrong decisions and paying for them, let us humble ourselves and seek God’s forgiveness, wisdom, guidance and mercy. He will then hear from heaven and forgive our national sin and heal our land. It can’t hurt to give it a faith filled try. I believe our future generations and the republic itself is worth the effort. God Bless You, God Bless America and May America Bless God.
