Acts 11:21 says, “And the hand of the Lord was with them, and a great number believed and turned to the Lord.” If God be for us, who can be against us? American history is unique because God’s hand can be seen from the beginning!
America exists today because God’s hand moved men and women in different generations to do their part starting with giving Christopher Columbus a Revelation of Isaiah 40:22, “He who sits above the circle of the earth, And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers, Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, And spreads them out like a tent to dwell.” When every other scholar believed the earth was flat, Columbus believed Isaiah and sought a “New World”.
Persecuted Christians left the confines of their culture in Europe facing death, for the promise of building a culture where freedom prevailed. They endured unspeakable hardship, disease and death to serve God in freedom. When government threatened their livelihood by taxing them into bankruptcy, they rebelled and declared independence. God’s hand saved Washington’s army from total defeat three times in six weeks by flooding rivers right after his army crossed.
When the delegates could not agree on a national constitution it was Benjamin Franklin who stood up to call them to prayer which they initiated daily until a republic was formed. Preceding every major historical crises that threatened this nation, God graciously moved by His Spirit renewing and reviving His people to rise and Declare “This is the way…walk in it” As the nation is threatened by Antichrist out-of-control government leaders, God is once again moving on His people.
The church is beginning to stand up in prayer as Franklin once urged demanding the Kingly Christ who still judges and saves will move in our behalf to defeat the enemy hopefully in the coming election. But those who refuse to repent, cease and desist should be prayed into the fullness of God’s jutice.
The Lord recently challenged me with two thoughts: If I answered the prayers of the founding generation to birth this country, do you not believe I’ll answer your generation’s prayers to save it? The second challenge comes from Jeremiah 32:27, where the Lord spoke to Jeremiah while in jail saying, “Behold I am the Lord, the God of all Flesh, is there anything too hard for me?” Accept the challenge and demand our covenant-keeping God sweep away the purveyors of evil currently controlling Washington DC. Let the Judge of all the earth visit those who remain and take the rebellious out like the tares being removed by the angel of the Lord! Let God restore as only He can! Let God arise and His enemies be scattered!
