America is in danger. Our founding fathers were brilliant men who understood the tendencies of human nature. They knew that in order to block tyranny, a self-governed people would need a government with many checks and balances. Therefore, they divided the power of our government into three separate holders of power: the executive (white house), legislative, (divided into a house of representatives & senate), and an independent judiciary. In order for tyranny to reign, all three would have to be taken over by a group of people whose self-interest directly violates the rights of their citizens.
244 years ago, the thirteen colonies declared independence on July 4,1776. Thousands died during the Revolutionary War to secure this newly found freedom.
Our constitution declares human beings have inalienable rights, endowed to us by our Creator- not from government. All men are created equally, in the image of Almighty God.
Because of their religious convictions, America was founded on Judeo-Christian values. These values emphasized the importance of individual freedoms and a strong family structure. There were many laws instituted to protect marriages and the children born within those marriages. If you want to further understand the immense value placed on Christianity, here are some quotes:
“That religion, or the duty which we owe to our Creator, and the manner of discharging it, can be directed only by reason and conviction, not by force or violence; and therefore all men are equally entitled to the free exercise of religion, according to the dictates of conscience; and that it is the mutual duty of all to practice Christian forbearance, love, and charity toward each other.”
– Virginia Declaration of Rights, George Mason
“We recognize no sovereign but God and no king but Jesus!”
– John Hancock and John Adams
“The general principles upon which the Fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity… I will avow that I believed and now believe that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence of attributes of God.”
– John Adams, Second President
“Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation, to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.”
– John Jay, First Chief Justice Of The Supreme Court
Because of our rich, Christian-based history, I could fill an entire book with quotes from all our great American heroes, such as Francis Scott Key, Patrick Henry, Helen Keller, George Washington Carver, Noah Webster, Martin Luther King Jr, and so many more.
Our founding fathers believed America would fall if the nation abandoned its religious foundation.
“Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure… are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments.”
– Charles Carroll, Signer of the Declaration of Independence
“Of all the dispositions and habits, which lead to political prosperity, Religion and Morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of Men and Citizens. The mere Politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connexions with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked, Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths, which are the instruments of investigation in Courts of Justice? And let us with caution indulge the supposition, that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect, that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.”
– George Washington’s Farewell Address
If our founders were correct about their assumption that a fall in Christianity would lead to the fall of America, then we are in a very dangerous time in our nation’s history. If our government no longer believes our rights come from our Creator, they can abolish them. Also, a government without the fear of God would have no problem embracing Socialist and Communist agendas.
Atheist, communist regimes have an insidious past which includes the murders of up to hundreds of millions of their own people.
Pol Pot, the communist leader of Cambodia from 1975-1979, eliminated one-fourth of all his citizens in just four years.
Mao Zedong, communist leader of China from 1949-1976 & founder of modern-day China, killed an upward of 100 million of his own people.
Josef Stalin, communist leader of the USSR, killed an upward of 60 million people.
Adolf Hitler, the socialist leader of Nazi Germany, eliminated about 12 million in the Holocaust.
These are just a few of the leaders in the last century that wreaked havoc in their countries. The only way to prevent tyranny in this country is to adhere to the foundation of our country.
“The history of liberty is the history of resistance. The history of liberty is a history of the limitation of governmental power, not the increase of it. When we resist the concentration of power, we are resisting the powers of death. Concentration of power precedes the destruction of human liberties.”
– Woodrow Wilson, the 28th President
Ronald Reagan warned Americans that freedom is not free and can be easily stripped away from its recipients.
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
– Ronald Reagan
Unfortunately, there are people in our society today who are trying to abolish and replace our history. America has been deemed “evil & racist” by those who seek to abolish our nation’s foundation. Schools that teach the 1619 project teach students that America wasn’t established in 1783. It was founded in 1619 when the first slave arrived on this land. They teach our children that America is systemically racist, our Constitution is racist, our flag is racist, and our institutions are racists.
They teach young Americans to hate our country. In the year 2020, viral videos showed Antifa & BLM members chanting “Death to America” in New York and Philadelphia. New York was the first capital of our great nation. Philadelphia is the home of our sweet Liberty Bell, which reads “proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof” from Leviticus 25:10.
Inside college campuses, students are more than eager to repeal our Constitution, claiming that it’s based on white supremacy. Authors such as Alexander Hamilton, Benjamin Franklin, and George Washington are not allowed on most college campuses. Indeed, in 2020, many of our statues were defaced and pulled down. Abraham Lincoln wasn’t safe and a statue of him (paid for by freed slaves) was removed in Boston. Schools are being renamed and these people are trying everything to remove our history.
George Orwell taught us best. He told us that if a nation’s history is deleted, that nation can be shaped into anything those in power desire. Our history is not meant to be good or bad, but to be learned from. Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. However, I know exactly why they’re doing all this.
One day, I was thinking to myself. It was the day I heard Pepsi was renaming Aunt Jemima to Pearl Mining Company after removing her face from their products. I thought of Uncle Ben and how he was a target as well. They’ve already canceled The Washington Redskin logo, which was designed by Native American Walter “Blackie” Wetzel to depict a member of the Blackfeet tribe. I was wondering, “Why on earth would they do that?”
Then, I understood. The reason they’re doing all of this is that they have a narrative to push. They want people to believe America is racist, right? Well, how can people believe this lie when there are famous black and Indian people on best-selling products? (RIP Land-O-Lakes)
As if the 1619 project wasn’t enough, they’re also teaching marxism in the schools. Karl Marx was the founder of communism, you know, the same communism that leads to the death of millions of people. Critical race theory teaches our students that white people are born racists and blacks are born victims. Not only blacks, though. If you’re a female, non-Christian, person of color, not straight, then you’re a victim with multiple victim statuses. This is called intersectionality.
Yes, this is taught in our public schools. The flag has been removed. The pledge of allegiance has been removed. Young Americans should not be proud to be an America, but ashamed. This is what our children are learning.
Former president, Donald J Trump attempted to reverse this problem by signing in the 1776 Commission. He was deemed a racist for it, but its main purpose was to put a patriotic curriculum back into public schools. However, our current administration removed this on its first day.
Abraham famously warned that America would never be destroyed from without, only from within. During the 1940’s-1950’s (and 1917-1920), America experienced the Red Scare. This was hysteria created by the threat of communism infiltrating America during the Cold War (and WWI). Americans understood the threat communism posed to our liberties and freedoms.
We are now in a time in America’s history where our citizens are ignorant. They don’t know our history. Communism and socialism are staring us in the face and many Americans are embracing them. In case you’re unaware, these governments are totalitarian in nature and those in charge own everything. Shops, homes, and businesses are seized from the people and the government gives you ‘everything’.
The politicians make great promises: “free healthcare for all”, “free education for all”, “equality for all.”
It sounds great in theory, but everywhere it’s been tried, it’s failed miserably and took many lives. A government that is powerful enough to give you everything has the power to take it all away. You can look at regimes in history for proof, but one needs not look any further than modern-day Venezuela. Socialism destroyed Venezuela in about 20 years.
In an effort to not make this post too long, I’m pleading for you to learn history and understand what’s occurring in America. Antifa mirrors Hitler’s brownshirts and gets their flag from Nazi Germany’s Antifaschistische Aktion. The Black Lives Matter fist is identical to the communist fist and their co-founder, Patrisse Cullors, professed they’re “trained marxist”. A member of Congress, Eric Swalwell, got caught sleeping with a communist spy and didn’t lose his seat in government.
Our news outlets are propaganda machines owned by a small group of people. They can’t be trusted. Do your own research and make your own decisions.
The enemy is within our gates and we have to act now before it’s too late.
So What Can We Do?
America is failing because we’ve abandoned our Creator. We’ve become so blessed in this nation that we’ve forgotten the one who blessed us in our beginning. It seems America is racing to destroy all the truths found in the Bible: that men and women are different, God is sovereign over mankind, that we are to protect and not murder our most vulnerable, nature is for the enjoyment of humankind, God alone has the power to give and take life, marriage is sacred, and so many more pillars of our nation’s foundation.
Just like ancient Israel, God will not turn a blind eye to our national sins. We’ve already paid the price of over 600,000 casualties in the Civil War for the sin of slavery. So what can Christians do? The Bible tells us that in the end times, there will be a one-world government. The fall of America is unavoidable, but we don’t have to sit idly by and do nothing.
The Bible compares the people of God to the salt and light of the earth. Salt holds off corruption. Before refrigeration, salt was used to keep meat fresh. Once corrupted, it’s almost impossible to move backward. The only way to move backward is for the church of God to initiate revival. Every real believer that I know is hoping and praying for revival to spread across our land.
During the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln declared a day of National Prayer And Fasting:
“We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power, as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God, we have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us!
It behooves us, then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.
Now, therefore, in compliance with the request, and fully concurring in the views of the Senate, I do by this proclamation, designate and set apart Thursday, the 30th day of April, 1863, as a day of national humiliation, fasting and prayer. And I do hereby request all people to abstain from their ordinary secular pursuits, and to unite, at their several places of public worship and their respective homes, in keeping the day holy to the Lord, and devoted to the humble discharge of the religious duties proper to that solemn occasion.
All this being done in sincerity and truth, let us then rest humbly in the hope, authorized by the Divine teachings, that the united cry of the Nation will be heard on high and answered with blessings, no less than the pardon of our national sins, and restoration of our now divided and suffering country to its former happy condition of unity and peace.”
God has led me to fast and pray for our nation. He told me to do it April 30, 2021, 159 years after Lincoln’s day of prayer and fasting. I’m reaching out to all Christians who sense God is leading them in the same direction.
Prayer and fasting is a spiritual weapon that has been used in the Bible to change the direction of a nation’s future. I believe if we all gather in Spirit on a day of fasting and cry out to God in one voice, repenting of our national sins, He will hear us from heaven and heal our land.
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
– 2 Chronicles 7:14
