AMERICA DECLARED INDEPENDENCE FROM BRITAIN.
I am so grateful for the freedoms we have here in the USA. There are so many basic ones we take for granted daily; freedom of speech, freedom to vote however we choose, freedom of religion.
Back when I was reading the Washington Hypothesis, I came across a bit of knowledge that I never knew before. Now, before I continue, I must stress the fact that the Founding Fathers were men of God. There I said it! They believed in a God and believed He was the reason for this great country.
There were so many miracles that existed in the American Revolution that without, America would not have been established. These miracles were acts of God; these men knew it.
Ok, so, when I was reading the Washington Hypothesis, I read about George Washington’s inauguration & how he CHOSE the chapter of the Bible that he put his hand on while he was sworn in as President of the United States. This chapter was Genesis 49, the chapter that Washington described as the best that pertained to the United States.
You might remember the Hamilton song, One Last Time, when they sing:
THIS COMES FROM THAT CHAPTER OF GENESIS.
I know some people are having a hard time with the government lately because of numerous reasons, but remember..
“When the people fear the government there is tyranny, when the government fears the people there is liberty.”
-John Basil Barnhill
The best part about America is the fact that it is ever-changing; constantly improving and getting better. & if not, WE CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!
So be grateful for the freedoms and country we have & LET’S STRIVE TO MAKE IT EVEN BETTER!!!
