Our Founding Fathers had security, but they valued liberty more.

Standing tall, straight, and unwavering, they pledged:

“For the support of this declaration, with firm reliance on the protection of the divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.”

This act of courage and selflessness was as a result of realizing their God-given rights were being infringed upon. They had a faith and a vision for what life could be; a vision that led to the freedom we benefit from today.

We have enjoyed this freedom for over 200 years, however we are now facing the same predicament. The very Judeo-Christian principles that create the foundation of this nation are eroding away right before our very eyes. Slowly over time, a combination of lack of action by people of faith partnered with decisions made by impious leaders have attributed to this matter.

It’s not too late. It’s never too late. Scripture promises us that “With God all things are possible.” There are accounts in the Bible of  an Angel of the Lord wiping out entire armies set against the people of God in one night, or God causing their enemies to destroy themselves as the people of God prayed to Him, fasted, and worshipped Him. When God is with us, who can be against us.

The key is choice. Make the choice today to pray for our nation and leaders, participate in/with your sphere of influence, and have faith that God can use you to bring reformation to this nation.

    As I have come to understand it, the people came to this land to share the Good News with those they would meet here. They were compelled to come! Just as many were compelled to go to other lands–they were compelled to come to America! Jesus said to “go” into all the world—

      So true… it is exciting to hear the hearts of many of the settlers that came.

      For instance: Four hundred years ago, the first permanent English settlement started on the coast of Virginia with an unusual purpose. The Virginia Company had a mission statement entitled, A True and Sincere Declaration of the Purposes and Ends of the Plantation Begun in Virginia. The first principle was “to preach and baptize into the Christian religion, and by the propagation of the Gospel, to recover out of the arms of the Devil, a number of poor and miserable souls, wrapt up unto death in almost invincible ignorance; to endeavor the fulfilling and accomplishment of the number of the elect which shall be gathered out of all the corners of the earth; and to add to our mite the treasury of heaven.”

      Members of the Virginia Company wrote that charter in London in 1606, and then set out for the New World. On April 26, 1607, they landed in Virginia at Cape Henry, located in what is now Virginia Beach. As you can imagine, 144 men crammed into three small boats might have a few disagreements after several months at sea. Those disagreements flared into violence and violence into thoughts of mutiny. The chaplain of the expedition, Reverend Robert Hunt, refused to let the men go ashore until the fighting ended. While they were anchored off the coast of Virginia, Reverend Hunt ordered three days of prayer and repentance. At the end of that time, the young chaplain held a communion service, and at the communion table, the settlers found reconciliation. Today, the Robert Hunt Memorial in Jamestown bears this inscription from the original colonists: “We all received from him the Holy Communion together, as a pledge of reconciliation, for we all loved him for his exceeding goodness. He planted the First Protestant Church in America and laid down his life in the foundation of America.” http://www.cbn.com/spirituallife/churchandministry/churchhistory/Gordon_Into_World.aspx

      They were fulfilling a mandate…and so are we. Thank you for partnering with us to preserve our spiritual heritage.
