July 4, 2022: Prayer And Reasserting America’s Christian Founding
Reasserting America’s Christian Founding
As freedom rings on America’s great birthday, shout from the rooftops, balconies, decks, patios, porches, watchtowers, etc.—”the USA has a Christian founding!”
The founding of American society and government is based on Judeo-Christian values and principles. This doesn’t mean you must be a Christian or a Jew to live in America. The U.S. embraces religious liberty which includes the personal freedom to choose any religion or no religion.
Nonetheless, the fact of the American Judeo-Christian founding must be kept sacrosanct. People who desire to enjoy the freedom that America offers, should be willing to assimilate to the precepts upon which the nation was/is established. Buddhists, Taoists, Muslims, etc. who are triggered by this simple fact are free to move to a country founded on their religious values of choice. Period. Done.
As the 20th century dawned upon the fruited plains, America saw a rise in European immigrants who brought with them Communist/Marxist ideology, the antithesis of the American Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights, Constitution, and Republican form of government. These early leftists established themselves in universities and media but were by no means the majority in these once respected institutions.
Throughout the first half of the 1900’s, migrants from all over Europe continued to arrive on America’s shores to escape the oppression, poverty, and death of Communist and Totalitarian governments. Unfortunately, many were indoctrinated with the ideas of their homeland.
Post WWII 1950’s
Notably, the 1950’s saw one of the most religious times in the history of America. As the past instructs, however, these periods are not the time to be complacent. During times of great evangelism, revival, awakening, satan will send his minions to do damage control. The greatness, prosperity, and spiritual life of America in the 1950’s was no exception.
With many European cities in ruins, and America desiring industrial and engineering expertise from abroad, more and more Communists (socialists, Marxists, Nazis, Authoritarians) immigrated to the U.S. Some joined with fellow ideologues already here, and began indoctrinating new followers.
Beneath the populist patriotism of the greatest generation, unrest and rebellion simmered in liberal university children being instilled with anti-American sentiments (though disguised as anti-government, anti-war movements, it was much deeper than policy disagreement) .
In the 1960’s, American President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Later, his brother Jack was assassinated. Civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. The Vietnam War began—fighting Communism (!). Student protests erupted all over the U.S. A corrupt, crony Vice-President, Lyndon B. Johnson was sworn in to take President Kennedy’s place. You get the picture.
The leftists, Communists, Marxists, etc., whose political parties never had the numbers to operate alone, naturally migrated to the totalitarian-rooted Democrat Party. And together their collective vitriol toward Christianity raged on. In the ploy to undermine the American way of life, the left’s foremost objectives were both the denial and eradication of the historical fact of our Christian founding.
1970’s Until Today
From the 1970’s up until today, leftists have done great harm to the historically accurate teaching of our founding and history in general. They have achieved this by blatant lying, spinning, omitting historical facts, details, events, and/or creating fictional accounts of our history. (Remember those early communists who planted themselves in universities? They are the majority in universities now. Universities and colleges have served as indoctrination camps for young people. And they have graduated many brainwashed students in the fields of journalism, education, and law. Unfortunately, that is where we are today.)
Depending on when you were born, you have been, to some degree or another, a victim of the left’s intentional falsehoods. Maybe you didn’t know American was founded as a Christian nation? Maybe you didn’t know that pastors, elders, and church members comprised the Minutemen? Maybe you didn’t know that the left has worked breathlessly to rid schools of prayer, public spaces of crosses, churches of freedom to discuss politics, or Christmas season of the word “Christmas”?
The leftists/communists, today’s full-fledged Democrat Party, have also worked tirelessly to use news media, TV, books, and movies, to portray Christians as imbeciles, backwards, uneducated, etc. Their hatred of Christians (devoted Christians as opposed to convenient Christians whom they use to their dubious advantage) is obvious. If anyone should have the slightest doubt about this, note the Democrats’ embrace of Islam, including radical Islam, a religion that is extremely fundamental, and that hates Christianity.
The Far Left Democrat Party Hates America And Christianity
Make no mistake. One of the main narratives of the propaganda media working in collusion with the Democrat Party and leftist billionaires, is to deny the Christian founding of the United States. They accomplish this through historical revision of our founding, lying about our founding, and/or the exclusion of American history in our educational systems.
America’s Judeo-Christian Heritage
We cannot, and must not, forget the heritage of our faith—whether you are Christian or not. (There is a reason that you, an American, do not live in a Muslim majority country. Think about it. You would have no freedom.) We cannot forget the heritage of our founding, based upon Judeo-Christian values and steeped in Biblical principles.
Our Founding Fathers were highly educated men, classically trained; brilliant and philosophical men having minds contoured by the Bible and the writings of great western thinkers. The once-in-a-lifetime confluence of superior intellect, single purpose, and divine providence coincided to influence the genius of the “by the people, for the people” American government, putting language to the documents of our great, and historically unique, American founding.
As we celebrate our 246th birthday, here is a great quote, literally one out of hundreds of thousands, to reiterate that we are a nation founded upon Judeo-Christian values. The following excerpt is from a speech given by the 6th President, John Quincy Adams. POTUS6 is the son of the 2nd President, John Adams, who is also one of America’s Founding Fathers.
John Quincy Adams completed his term as President in 1829. He returned to Congress as a representative in 1831 up until the time of his death in 1848. He served the 11th, 12th, and 8th districts of Massachusetts in successive terms. At the time of this speech, he was representative to MA-12.
An oration delivered before the inhabitants of the town of Newburyport, at their request : on the sixty-first anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, July 4th, 1837
Why is it that, next to the birthday of the Savior of the World, your most joyous and most venerated festival returns on this day. Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior? That it forms a leading event in the Progress of the Gospel dispensation? Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer’s mission upon earth?
Share this excerpt and the great quote memes located in this post. We are on mission to rekindle the knowledge of America’s great and providential Christian founding.
2020’s – America Needs Divine Help
American has always enjoyed, needed, and relied on divine help. As at no other time in history, our nation needs God’s intervention. The radical and vicious far-left Democrat Party is on mission to destroy our country. Everything happening is not solely based on incompetence. It is a plan. They must be stopped.
Pray for our nation. There is no doubt that we can Pray America Great Again. Resist the leftist lies. And be proud of your Christian faith and your Christian heritage.
Prayer is our greatest weapon to defeat leftists, who are the faces, hands, and feet of evil on earth. Don’t take it from me, take it from someone who had authority to speak about such things:
For the one who is not against us is for us. Mark 9:40
And the flipside… The one who is against us, is not for us. The leftists hate Christians and Jews.
NOTE: It would be a tragedy for us to let an already defeated enemy win. In the Gospels, the demons are always the loudest. But at the sight of Jesus, the coward demons begged not to be thrown into the abyss, begging instead to embody some helpless pigs, and then summarily drowned themselves. And the innocent pigs! Seriously, are we going to fear such lunacy? We should laugh instead.
Sovereign Lord of all History,
John Quincy Adams said it wonderfully, “that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior.” July 4, 1776, marks a significant event in the proclamation of the Gospel in the world. America’s exceptionalism can only be explained by the fact that our social compact was organized on the foundation of the Redeemer’s mission upon earth.
Father God, thank You! Praise Your holy name for You “saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of Your own purpose and grace, which You gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began” (2 Timothy 1:9). With grace unlimited, You multiple blessings, for You have declared that we are a “royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for Your own possession, that we may proclaim the excellencies” (1 Peter 2:9) of our Blessed Redeemer’s mission upon earth.
Our Father, on this day and beyond, help us to “lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus” (Hebrews 12:1-2). Help us to get real in worship, get real in faith, and get real in prayer as we seek deliverance for the nation from this illegitimate and reprobate government installation.
Father God, we really need You. We need You to save us from this communist regime who is systematically destroying our country. They live on the fat of the land while causing unnecessary suffering among America’s lower and middle classes.
Almighty God, in this day of great evil, enable us with the invigorating breath of Your Spirit to stand up and defend our Christian faith and our Christian heritage! Grant us boldness and confidence to proclaim our faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and our hope in His resurrection.
Earnestly we ask You to send revival upon this nation! Pour out Your Holy Spirit upon this nation. May the faithful teaching and preaching of the Gospel, as well as the testimony of lives devoted to Christ, bring many to believe in Jesus through both word and deed.
For Jesus’ sake, we ask You to raise up more people that will call on Your name. Raise up those that love You and seek You and trust You.
Jesus, we need believers now, in this generation, and in future generations who are not ashamed of the gospel. We need believers who will stand on Your Word above all else.
We need believers that will not compromise under pressure, that will not cower when others fall away. Raise up courageous and bold Christians with a unified heart and certainty of purpose.
God, on this glorious and providential day, we ask You to clothe us in a garment of holy bravery that we may boldly proclaim the Gospel. We ask for sharp and ready minds to always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks us to give the reason for the hope that we have (1 Peter 3:15). We ask You to empower us to be extraordinary Christians, citizens of heaven who are walking upon the earth.
You commanded Your people to be strong and very courageous. Three times You said this to Joshua before he had served one day as Moses’ successor. How much more do we need to hear it, obey it, and live it?
Lord, as You have commanded us, so enable us to be—strong and courageous. You do not ask us but command us. You would not give a command that we could not carry out. Every day help us to be strong, help us to be courageous. The devil’s lies, “you’re weak, you’re scared,” are only him projecting. For certainly he cannot oppose Your redeemed people.
You have bequeathed us with such a wonderful nation. Forgive us for being so easily cowered by those who belong to satan. Go with us as we take a stand as Christians to take back our country, revive our freedoms as citizens of this great experiment, and ensure its place as a city shining on a hill. Raise us up Lord in the might of Your power.
Forgive us for allowing the left to put us on the sidelines of civil and political society. You made us the first string, the starting lineup, the Olympians to carry the torch into the public square. Forgive us for the failure. And thank You for helping us to get back up, no matter what. Remove the reproach of the viscous leftist lies and anti-Christian propaganda from us.
Be Strong And Courageous
6 Be strong and courageous, for you shall give these people the inheritance of the land that I swore to their fathers I would give them.
7 Above all, be strong and very courageous. Be careful to observe all the law that My servant Moses commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may prosper wherever you go.
8 This Book of the Law must not depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. For then you will prosper and succeed in all you do.
9 Have I not commanded you to be strong and courageous? Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”
Father, it is a Red Sea moment for us! We are hemmed in on all sides, the Egyptians behind and the Red Sea in front. But thanks be to God, You are above! Yes, Lord, You are above! Faithful and True. And You have said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5b). “So we can confidently say, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?’” (Hebrews 13:6).
Write these words “with the Spirit of the living God on tablets of human hearts” (2 Corinthians 3:3) as a letter to all leftists in our nation and in the world.
Empowered with Word and Spirit, let us not hesitate to do what You have called us to do. Standing at our Red Sea moment, some out of fear may want to turn back to Communist/Democratic party slavery (Exodus 14:12). Leaders, even great leaders, may hesitate in uncertainty, and say “fear not, see what the Lord will do, and be silent” (Exodus 14:13-14).
But You, oh Lord, say, “Go! Don’t cry to me. Don’t hesitate. Get moving!” (Exodus 14:15). And once we commit, divine providence moves, and miracles happen! Your people are unstoppable. Not in and of themselves are they unstoppable, but because You, the Lord God Almighty, is in our midst.
Holy Lord and God Almighty! “If You are for us, who can be against us” (Romans 8:31)? “We are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ who loved us” (Romans 8:37). Humbled at Your feet, we say thank You good Father.
