In Psalm 33:12, the Word of God says, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, and the people whom He hath chosen for His own inheritance.” When the Pilgrim Fathers landed at Plymouth Rock, they knelt down on the shore and thanked God for bringing them into this new country. The church of our Lord Jesus Christ was the center of every settlement in this new land. When the Continental Congress was faced with great problems and difficulties, Benjamin Franklin convinced them that the Scripture is right – “Except the Lord build the house they labor in vain that build it” (Psalm 127:1). He said, “Gentlemen, I have lived for a long time and am convinced that God governs the affairs of men. If a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it possible that an empire can rise without His aid?”
A Christian Heritage
Does America really have a Godly heritage? Did you realize that out of the 55 founding fathers who worked on the Constitution, 52 of them were born again, Bible-believing, evangelical Christians. Patrick Henry who is famous for the statement, “Give me liberty, or give me death,” also said, “It cannot be emphasized too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists, but by Christians; not all religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” Former President, John Quincy Adams stated, “The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: it connected in one indissoluble bone – the principles of Christianity with the principles of civil government.” John Jay, who was the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, said, “Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers. It is the duty as well as the privilege of a Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for its rulers.”
Separation of Church and State
Our founding fathers never intended to separate Christian principles from government. In recent polls, 67% of Americans thought that separation of church and state was in the First Amendment. The concept of separation of church and state came from a letter to a Baptist congregation by Thomas Jefferson, assuring them that there would be no state church, such as the Anglican Church in England. President Jefferson stated that there was indeed a wall of separation between church and state. It is a one directional wall that keeps the government from running the church, but assures that there will always be Christian principles in government.
America in Prophecy
If the blood-bought, born again Church of Jesus Christ will stand up and speak out, we will see the greatest revival this world has ever witnessed that will result in a virtual rapture of the United States of America. Cast your vote for God as a Christian American by being faithful to church and to the righteous Biblical principles upon which our nation was founded!
God Bless America!
