Psalm 11:3

If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?

Today is July 4th in America. People everywhere are celebrating with outdoor cookouts and fireworks. American flags are seen on every street corner. As Believers, we should stop on this day to thank God for the many blessings and privileges we have as a result of our nation’s Constitution, freedoms, and liberties.

On this day in 1776 a document was signed by the Founding Fathers who agreed to these words, “That all men are indeed created equal.” This same government in 1854 agreed upon these words in Congress, “The great, vital, and conservative element in our system is the belief of our people in the pure doctrines and divine truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” Even though our nation and many of its leaders have shifted their ideas away from these original truths - due entirely to Scriptural prophecy - we must thank God for the nation we live in, and it’s Founding Fathers.

William Federer wrote, “On June 1, 1774, as the Colonies were seeking God’s will as to whether they should break ties with England, George Washington made this entry in his diary, ‘Went to church and fasted all day’.” This was the man who influenced so much of our country's beginnings. It was because of this kind of beginning that we enjoy  the freedoms and liberties we have today.

Believers are not of this world, we are of a different kingdom. However, we do live in this world. And no matter where we live on the earth, we should be thankful to God for the grace and mercy He has given us.

As we reflect on how America started, and the blessings we have today as a result, we should never forget that past, present, and future are all in the hands of God. We must rest trustworthily in the hands of God, as citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven.

61-0319 - “Jezebel Religion”

And America, upon the basis of our forefathers who came here for religious freedom… We had godly men in them days as leaders: George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, men of renowned character, men of God. America was America in those days. George Washington, here at Valley Forge, before he crossed the Delaware, praying all night, until he was wet plumb to his waist, kneeling in snow. And the next morning when the Americans started across, there's only about twenty percent of them had shoes to wear, the American Army. But they had a principle; they had something that they had to fight for. They didn't care what come or went. (The farmers come in and stopped his plow and took out his ox, and got his rifle and went to fight for what he knowed was freedom.) And the next day, I believe it was, four or five bullet holes (musket bullets) went through his coat and hat and never touched him. Men of God who founded this nation, great men… No wonder they wrote: Long may our land be bright With freedom's holy light; Protect us by Thy might, Great God, our King!
