espite America being currently shaken to its foundation, we are still truly a blessed nation, which has holidays such as Independence Day — commonly known as the Fourth of July — to reflect upon that fact. If more Americans understood they are the true heirs and protectors of the birth of freedom in the world, July 4 celebrations would take on a new dimension, potentially igniting Americans from all walks of life to sacrifice their time and resources to join the ranks of the growing patriot movement dedicated to protecting and saving America’s freedom at this critical time.

Every other nation before the United States came into being from an evolution of tribes or clans, royalty and blood lineage, inevitabilities of language, culture, tradition and geography; or, as the result of war where the victors carve up the vanquished. America is the only nation in human history which has been completely born of noble and deeply spiritual principles: that all men are created equal, and that they have been given by God certain rights that cannot be taken away by any man or earthly authority. Those unalienable rights act to guard and protect what is commonly known as individual freedoms. As a result, Americans have always been free to pursue happiness, worship God, speak publicly about their views: and of course, whom the elect as their leaders.

Consider this: The very freedoms and rights we have taken for granted for hundreds of years in the United States did not even exist in Asia — the most populated part of the world — before World War II. Asian states and societies were traditionally autocratic with a very small and select group of people at the top possessing all the power and privileges while the citizenry beneath them at the bottom had neither rights nor much in the way of personal freedom. However after the victory of the Allied powers in World War II, democratic self-government was finally granted to India and Japan in 1947 and spread from there, however imperfectly.

No matter the odds against freedom today, we can still take heart and resolve from our own history. During the first few years of the War of Independence, George Washington’s undertrained, ill equipped and underfunded Continental Army was only half the size of the highly trained professional British army and their allied German Hessian mercenary troops. The naval mismatch between England & America was even greater. The Continental Navy only had about 25 converted merchant ships while the British naval power was more than 10 times greater, with 270 dedicated warships concentrated around East Coast colonial ports. At the time, things looked grim for the American cause.

However, the courage, determination and godly faith of the Founders made all the difference. The last sentence of the Declaration of Independence before the space allotted for signatures reads, “…for the support of this Declaration, with a firm Reliance on the Protections of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”

Indeed, July 4 for those founders was a serious and somber occasion. General George Washington was in New York, preparing its defense, when on July 6, 1776, a courier from Philadelphia arrived to deliver a copy of the Declaration of Independence which had been agreed upon by delegates of the Continental Congress just two days earlier. There were only two signatures on that document: John Hancock, president of the Continental Congress, and Secretary Charles Thomson. Because the odds of prevailing against the British were so low and the penalty for treason was death, it had been decided not to reveal the identities of the other 54 men who had voted in favor of the declaration.

During the Summer and Fall of 1776, Washington was forced to retreat after losing all three major battles in the New York campaign, at the cost of 4,100 men either killed or taken prisoner. However, less than two months later, Washington achieved two victorious successive surprise attacks, defeating a Hessian garrison in Trenton, New Jersey the day after Christmas 1776, and then routing the British in nearby Princeton eight days later. The Continental Congress considered these back-to-back victories as a turning point in the War of Independence. So Congress released the 56-signature declaration to be distributed throughout the colonies.

As History has recorded, Washington would lose more battles than he would win over the next five years, but he persisted on with unwavering faith in God and the cause of freedom. Myriad developments that only Providence could have arranged made Washington’s 1781 victory at Yorktown possible — to bring a final and total surrender from Great Britain. In retrospect, more remarkable than the reversal of odds resulting in the American military victory, was the spiritual power of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution which followed the war. These documents established the rights of the people come from God and not the state, and that the sovereign powers of the state could be shaped and limited by those people.

When leftist secular forces drove God out of America’s culture some 60-plus years ago, that void became filled with false idols and divisive spiritual influences. Little wonder that average Americans today feel demoralized and confused about the self-destructive direction of the country. Our corrupt Ruling Elites seems to have neither respect for We The People’s welfare and rights, nor for the Constitution which has served previous generations of Americans so well.

Everything will change again if Americans realign their interests with God, who has assures us with time and tenacity, truth always triumphs over lies and evil. Just as success followed the resolve expressed on July 4, 1776, we too can tap into the same unstoppable spiritual authority which enabled the Founders to overcome impossible odds.

Coming full circle from the opening observation that many Americans have an insufficient appreciation for the meaning behind holidays, the word “holiday” itself originally came into usage as being synonymous with “holy day.” July 4 is truly America’s “holy day.” Thomas Jefferson, who championed freedom in his writing of the Declaration of Independence, called America “the world’s best hope.”  Abraham Lincoln, whose cause became expanded freedom by abolishing slavery, called America “the last best hope of earth.” President Reagan declared, “If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth.” 

The nightmare of one’s house burning down prompts an immediate response — dropping everything to save loved ones. Well, America has been set on fire in order to destroy our freedom. It’s now time for everyone to get involved to save our home and freedom.

Let’s revere this July 4 as day of celebration of our founding ideals but also a time of renewed commitment to engage and awaken everyone we know to the danger confronting us. It’s time to resist & reject creeping tyranny and political corruption in any and every way possible. It’s time to reclaim our sovereignty and spiritual birthright over the precious possessions of our freedoms and rights. Just as Washington succeeded against impossible odds by persistence, courage and the truth, we too will prevail.✪
