God’s Kingdom Podcast: Returning to the roots of the Declaration of Independence

A brief summary of today’s program:

We used to say that  America is at a crossroad:  But America is no longer at an intersection.

The fatal turn has been made and we are somewhere down the slippery slope and we are sliding fast. The Word of God teaches us to return to our foundation at times like this.
For America, there is a good argument to be made that our foundation is the Declaration of Independence.

One portion of Scripture that speaks to this is 2 Kings 6:6 regarding going back to the ax head.

“I’ll have no king but King Yeshua” – The Battle Cry of the War of Independence

Woodrow Wilson (1856 – 1924) – 28th president of the United States said that “A nation which does not remember what it was yesterday, does not know what it is today, nor what it is trying to do. We are trying to do a futile thing if we do not know where we came from or what we have been about.”

In America, before the Declaration of Independence, there was the “Great Awakening”.  The Great Awakening was a spiritual wave of growth lead by men like Jonathan Edward, George Whitfield,  and John Wesley.

The First Continental Congress met in may of 1774 in Philadelphia

Samuel Adams proposed that they begin that session with prayer.  Accordingly, Rev. Jacob Dousche’ was appointed as Chaplain for the First Continental Congress and so he led that prayer quoting Psalm 35.

Congress approved the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. The Declaration proclaimed that the former Thirteen Colonies were at war with Great Britain and now a sovereign, independent nation, and thus no longer a part of the British Empire.

The actual signing of the United States Declaration of Independence occurred primarily on August 2, 1776, at the Pennsylvania State House, Independence Hall in PhiladelphiaPennsylvania.

The 56 delegates to the Second Continental Congress represented the 13 former colonies which had declared themselves the “United States of America,”

The day before the signing of the Declaration, August 1, 1776 Samuel Adams delivered  In a famous speech, to a large audience,  from the steps of the State House in Philadelphia, the meeting place of the Continental Congress

In that speech, Samuel Adams said this:  “This day, I trust the reign of political Protestantism will commence. We have explored the temple of royalty and found that the idol we have bowed down to, has eyes which see not, ears that hear not our prayers, and a heart like the nether millstone. We have this day restored the Sovereign, to whom alone men ought to be obedient. He reigns in Heaven, and with a propitious eye beholds his subjects assuming that freedom of thought, and dignity of self-direction which He bestowed on them. From the rising to the setting sun, may His kingdom come.”
