blog - God's hand in American and world history

This website and blog is a platform to openly discuss and share ideas and examples of God’s hand in American and world history, Christian Biblical principles of liberty and freedom, the American Covenant, and the spiritual influences behind history. Information on this website listed under various subject headings is presented from a Christian Biblical perspective and worldview. God’s hand in history was a well-accepted truth that was understood in earlier generations, and confirmed by many of the Founding Fathers and patriots of the United States.

American historian Charles Carleton Coffin (1823-1896) wrote on the country’s founding era noted. “You will notice that while the oppressors have carried out their plans and had things their own way, there were other forces silently at work which in time undermined their plans – as if a Divine hand were directing the counter-plan. Whoever peruses the story of liberty without recognizing this feature will fail of fully comprehending the meaning of history. There must be a meaning to history or else existence is an incomprehensible enigma.”

Without God history is an incomprehensible enigma. Today across the country, there is an unsettling feeling that something is wrong, very wrong. We have allowed God to be pushed out of our schools, government, the public square, and for some, He’s been pushed out of our very lives. But now some worry that perhaps we are no longer under God’s covenantal protection, or worse, that we are a nation abandoned by God.

But in today’s humanist secular society God and His divine hand in history is hidden knowledge, virtually banned from any public discussion. Knowledge and wisdom that is deliberately not taught in public schools, because it is directly at odds with the often evil political narrative promoted by the majority of the liberal news and social media platforms. It is time to put aside the political correctness, cancel culture, and political name-calling to have an open and honest discussion on the things that really do matter both in this life and the eternal one.

American Providentialism - (God's Hand in American History)

I was wrong, you were wrong, they were wrong, everything is Providential

To be added

Do we still “hold these truths” to be “self-evident"? The short answer no, and it's the root cause of a majority of the problems we face in America today.

We still “hold these truths to be self-evident” of course is from the Declaration of Independence. Truth has not changed it’s timeless, immutable, because it is of God [God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob]. No, unfortunately it is we who have changed. Today a substantial portion of population rejects truth, and in turn they are rejecting God. For many it can be argued, and probably is true, that it’s not their fault. Because they never had proper instruction on the Bible. They never learned about their country’s true history, their God given rights, and principles of (self) government in school. Others however are culpable rejecting God’s Laws, and Commandment. Still others have given themselves over to evil and war against God.

We may ask then what is the truth? That question was answered over two thousand year ago when Pontius Pilate said to Jesus, “What is truth?” “For this I was born, and for this I have come into the world, to bear witness to the truth. Every one who is of the truth hears my voice.” [John 18:3-38 RSV] Freedom is truth, and the truth is God’s word.[Father Mark] “and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” [John 8:32 RSV]

Therefore, if there is truth then there is moral truth. Moral truths make freedom possible. “Free will is the liberty to choose what is right (according to Gods Law) [Father Malachi Martin] “Liberty is from God; liberties, from the devil.” [Berthold Auerbach] What truth, justice, freedom, liberty share in common is they are based on God’s Laws and Commandments.

Back to the topic of Declaration of Independence and “self-evident” truth. The document the country’s mission statement. A new nation that was born in a day. Conceived in liberty, a republican model of self-government entrusted to the hands of the American people.

July 4, 1776: The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness [property]; that, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to their safety and happiness. …

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

A few important aspects of the document that need to point out. The phrase “The Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God” is known as the Natural Law. Since God is the creator and divine author of the universe, nature, and man, he has established the laws of nature, such as the law of gravity, motion, and thermodynamics has a set forth guidelines for mankind to follow. Founding Father George Mason said, “The laws of nature are the laws of God; whose authority can be superseded by no power on earth.” In short, God’s Law known as the Higher Law and The Moral Law is above the laws of man or government.

The document was a public declaration to the world that there is a creator who grants unalienable rights. Since these are God given rights, they can’t be taken away by a King, Queen, tyrant, or elected public officials. So, the purpose of civil government as stated in the document is to secure and protect God-given rights. The Constitution is the frame of government or an incorporation document that protects those rights. The rights of government are limited and defined, or limited government. The later Bill of Rights list five God-given rights, but there can be others. Stated another way, short of running for office or being elected, you have no Constitutional rights. What you have is God given rights protected by the Constitution.

In addition to the document being a covenant between states under a framework of government under God, or “One Nation Under God.” The declaration was an “Appeal to Heaven” for divine assistance, to bring the principles and tenets set forth in the Declaration of Independence into fruition. As duly authorized by their respective states, these men risked their lives, fortune, and sacred honor. It was an act of trust in God that their appeal to heaven [God] would be heard and answered, “thy will be done.” And we know from their testimony, through many miracles their prayers were answered.

John Jay shared, the revolution was “distinguished by so many marks of divine favor and interposition, that no doubt can remain of its being finally accomplished. It was begun, and has been supported, in a manner so singular, and I say miraculous, that when future ages shall read its history, they will be tempted to consider great part of it fabulous. … But, however incredible these things may in future appear, we know them to be true.” “They,” the American people John Quincy Adams stated “were bound by the laws of God, which they all, and by the Laws of the Gospel, which they nearly all, acknowledged as the rules of their conduct. They were bound by the principles which they themselves had proclaimed in the declaration.”

The United States of America, this experiment in time of self-government, requires that citizens have morals [piety, virtue], internal self-control, or internal self-government. John Adams stated it this way warning. “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. … Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.”

Principles of truth, freedom, liberty, justice, self-government can only be found in Christianity. “Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled, either by a power within them, or by a power without them; either by the word of God, or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible, or by the bayonet.” [Robert Charles Winthrop] “It is only Christianity that enables a nation to be free. Because “the Christianity faith brings the supernatural transformation of in heart. There it gives the ideas of liberty planted in the mind … lays the foundation for self-government and hence for freedom.” [Stephen McDowell from the Providence Foundation]

In closing on this topic on self-evident” would like to go back to Alexis de Tocqueville observations in America from 1831. Tocqueville spent nine months touring the county studying the prison system for the French government. From his work published titled Democracy in America.

“I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers, and it was not there; in her fertile fields and boundless prairies, and it was not there; in her rich mines and her vast world commerce, and it was not there. Not until I went to the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”

If America ceases to be great, it will be because of our rejection of God and truth. As George Washington cautioned in his first Inaugural Address to the nation. “Every step, by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation, seems to have been distinguished by some token of providential agency. … The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right [truth, God’s Law] which Heaven itself has ordained.” …

Woe On To The Woke CEOs Who Call Evil Good!

This blog post and warning for the Woke CEOs can be summed up as follows. Choose this day whom you shall serve. Will it be God or evil and the wicked who plot and scheme to remove God from society and destroy America? Do you stand for the lies and false doctrines of political correctness, or truth and righteousness?

You can feel it, you can sense it, there is an energy in the air that can be felt. Something spiritually has shifted in the country. It’s no longer business as usual, something has changed. As a CEO of a company, decision maker, manager, even in government the decisions you make have spiritual consequences on yourself and on society. Are you promoting good or are you promoting evil? Woke is not of God. It is an evil ideology which causes division in society, and forces its compliance through totalitarian means and destroys all who oppose it.

You miss the point if you think placating (spiritually comprising yourself) to the Woke crowd is just about financial trade-offs, stock prices, or even the potential loss of business from conservatives or Christians (get woke, and go broke). The point is that many of the decisions you make on behalf of your company are not political but moral. When you side with evil you damage your soul and sell out your country. Are you doing good in society, or are you doing evil and harming society?

So, what has changed in society is that God is in the process of separating out sheep and goats in society. God is taking back control from evil the areas of business, government, media, arts and entertainment, education, religion, and family, known as the Seven Mountains of influence in society. He is separating out the wheat and the weeds, or tares. “Let both grow together until the harvest; and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.’” [Matthew 13:30 RSV]  

Christians are no longer are willing to be backed into a corner and have their voices silenced. They are becoming fearless with righteous anger. Why? Because they know that they will be judged by God by their actions and stewardship of their nation. In turn they are holding people and companies accountable to God’s Moral Laws.

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!” [Isaiah 5:20 RSV]

This move of God in the United States started as a Revival and is quickly moving into an Awakening [Third Great Awakening] which will spread worldwide. We have historical precedent for such events which can last for 50 years or more, but this one is different. God is the driving force behind the moral tsunami that is rising in society. You may call it the “fear of God” but it’s time to choose whom you will serve.

In 2021 we discovered that we were Truman from the Truman show.

In 2022 we became aware that virtually ALL that we were told by the mainstream media and government to believe was a LIE.

The Truman Show was a movie about Truman Burbank his entire life has been controlled and broadcast worldwide in a television show. He thought he was living an ordinary life but situations and his reality were being controlled by the director working behind the scenes.
Slowly he realized something is very wrong and manages to conquer his fear and escape from the dome or his false reality to discover the truth and his freedom.

Under the first four years under Trump’s presidency, we too discovered levels of corruption, collusion, and evil that even the most cynical had no idea was happening in society. Given the tight control over information in all levels of society and deep state points to a divine hand behind the public becoming aware if.

In 2021 many modern-day Judas has come forward in public, having sold their souls for 30 pcs of silver. In contrast for good, a spiritual revival is spreading across the country. There is a move of God in the country, we may expect to see great exposure on overturning of evil-controlled dominions in media, government, entertainment, business, education, and even in some religious groups. The year 2021 is shaping up to be the year that we too discover how controlled that we have been by evil and tactics of fear and escape to turn to embrace God’s truth, liberty, and freedom.

Your thoughts and comments …

Thomas Merton and the political unrest in society.

“In the devil’s theology, the important thing is to be absolutely right and to prove that everybody else is absolutely wrong.”
— Thomas Merton (1915-1968)

Thomas Merton was a Trappist monk, author, social activist, mystic, theologian, and scholar of comparative religion. His observations on the evil we see everywhere in our secular humanist society today are captured in his quote. The devil offers the evil opposite to God’s laws and truth. We see many forcefully pushing for acceptance of moral behavior which God has clearly warned is sin. God’s laws are social justice, but not the social justice movement which leads to evil which is detrimental to society.

This evil pushes for laws to force people into violating God’s law such as paying for abortion, or under penalty of law controlling speech, or to punish those who would call out sin. Under totalitarian governments and regimes through fear, and possibly death they force compliance with evil against God’s laws.

It has been said society is truly fallen when people can no longer be allowed to call out sinful behavior. If we wish to be a righteous people and maintain our liberty and principles of free government we need to call out the devil’s theology in all aspects of society. Which of course means this starts with ourselves first. Most people know something is wrong, very wrong in society but can identify the cause. It’s the devil’s theology pushed by the Left and secular humanists it is absolutely wrong and is destroying lives and society. Because it destroys everything that it touches.

“During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.”

British novelist essayist George Orwell in his book 1984 which is about a one party state. The party slogans are “WAR IS PEACE”, ‘FREEDOM IS SLAVERY’ and “IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.” The Ministry of Truth responsible control of the for propaganda, culture and entertainment. As well as revision the historical record. Because he “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.” The party controls truth, language, history, on what is spoken and attempts to control even ones thoughts.

Contrast to today with political correctness, being woke, social media platforms control of through in banning conservative voices, and people losing their jobs for expressing their opinion. Have we reached the “times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act”? Twenty years ago, most people could never have envisioned such an oppressive government-media-business Ministry of Truth.  Evil is evil behind it all and now we can clearly see what Orwell was trying to humanity about.

Will God save the United States yet again in the 2020 Presidential election?

Author David A. Fisher wrote that “The first basic truth is that God is in control of history. … He exercises His will through divine superintendence or by divine intervention. … Another foundational truth is that God has a plan for history. History is providential, not accidental.” Today we are witnessing God’s divine hand in the 2020 presidential elections. Who could have predicted Joe Biden’s son Hunter laptop and exposure of Joe’s apparent involvement in a family money making scheme connected to China, Russia, Iran and other sworn enemies of the United States? The odd timing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death and Amy Coney Barrett being sworn in as the new justice on the supreme court just before the election. Now in a number of key Democratically controlled battle ground states massive voter fraud is being exposed. Over these past four years evil doers and their hypocrisy has been exposed in each of the Seven Mountains of spiritual influence in society as one odd set of circumstances after another plays out. Which may lead to Donald Trump’s being inaugurated to a second term as president.

Political biases aside (if that is even possible), Donald Trump has been the most Constitutional, the most prolife,  pro liberty and advocate for religious liberty, the most praying president we have seen on our lifetime.

But what if this election, in addition to who will become the next president, was a referendum on the future spiritual direction of the United States of America? What if it was your declaration to God that you are either with Him for good and His moral laws, or that you reject Him and were choosing evil? (He who is not with me is against me … Matthew 12:30.) We have free will to choose good or evil, therefore our choices are moral and come with consequences.

We do not have a “political divide” in the United States today we have a “spiritual divide”. It is not about Donald Trump it but about the spiritual condition of the people, Biblically speaking the children of light Vs. the children of darkness (children of the lie). Many don’t want there to be a God because they reject moral absolutes or limits while others actively rebel against Gods’ Laws because they have chosen evil. From a Biblical and moral perspective there are stark differences between the Democratic and Republican platforms. Whether it be on the issue of abortion, religious liberty, Judeo-Christian values, education and educational choice, liberty, free market, and medical choice they are complete polar opposites. The Democratic party platform can be summarized as we are the party that is against what God stands for. It appears that in this election cycle God was forcing each of us into a make spiritual and moral choice, not just about the spiritual direction of the country, but on where we stand with God.

Which leads me to the topic of the referendum on the spiritual direction of the Unites States of America. In May of 2016 God shared with Chuck Pierce the following prophetic message. “The lord told me Donald Trump would become be President.” (This same message was given to  other religious as well.) God also shared with Chuck the parable of the barren fig tree which he understood was a reference to the spiritual condition of United States of America.

A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. And he said to the vinedresser, ‘Lo, these three years I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and I find none. Cut it down; why should it use up the ground?’ And he answered him, ‘Let it alone, sir, this year also, till I dig about it and put on manure. And if it bears fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down.’” [Luke 13:6-9 RSV]

The season referenced appears to be the presidential term of four years (a season). So from 2016 to 2020 in God’s view, did the citizens and country States bear good fruit or should the tree be cut down? The country has broken the covenant signed by our country’s forefathers. There are other offences the country has committed against the Moral Law. God hates hands that “shed innocent blood.” Since the Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision [1973] there have been over 60,000,000+ babies killed due abortion. Never doubt God has heard the screams of these babies being killed and at some point will act. It has now been a season so did the tree bear good fruit, or should it be cut down? Since man has free will perhaps with the 2020 election the people will decide their fate by their vote if the country (the tree) should continue or be cut down.

If God’s judgment is based on “legally” cast ballots then Donald Trump (and righteousness) have won both the popular and electoral vote count and through grace may lead to a Third Great Spiritual Awakening. However if evil and election fraud reigns over truth and justice then the fate of the United States has been decided and the country will be headed to the dust bin of history. As the country’s future hangs in the balance, our future will be as it always has been which is in the hands of God.

Derangement Syndrome or Diabolical Disorientation?

Keith Olbermann’s recent emotional rant that Trump supporters “must be prosecuted and convicted and removed from our society” is just one more example on the left of this hate and rage not against conservatives, but against God and His Laws and commandments. This hate completely takes over the rational mind to where it no longer functions. Olbermann offered no explanation on what crimes have been committed or why that half of the American voters should be prosecuted and removed from society. This is a spiritual issue. It is a revolt against God we have seen time and time again in history. Where a large groups of people well to use the phrase have “lost their minds.” Which then leads to atrocities such as the French Revolution, Russian Revolution, Nazi Germany, Rwanda, and the list goes on.

Definition: Derangement Syndrome is a recently diagnosed psychological spiritual condition that afflicts mainly secular people, where normally reasonable people are obsessed with an irrational hatred of mainly Christian and God-fearing candidates, politicians, and officeholders. People who suffer from this condition when asked to explain their behavior often cannot verbalize the reasons behind their irrational emotional reactions. Due to the hatred of those who hold traditional Christian Biblical values that are in positions of political power “Seven Mountains” implies “demoralization” or “ideological subversion” which may possibly be due to the mainstream media lies and propaganda or spiritual entanglement with evil or demonic forces.

The terms that come to mind are demoralization, diabolical disorientation, reprobate mind, but for discussion here we will call it out as just one more example of derangement syndrome. While this could be political posturing to his audience, more likely it is due to spiritual entanglement with evil or demonic forces. Clearly spiritually something is not right with Olbermann. I leave the question open for discussion, what the heck is going on with Keith Olbermann?

Matt’s question was if God is still watching over America, or is God letting society experience the enviable consequences of our disregard of His Laws and Commandments?

…God gave them over to a depraved mind to do the things that are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil, full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice, gossip, slander, haters of God, insolent, arrogant boastful inventors of evil, disobedient to parents without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful. And although they know the ordinance of God. … [Romans 1:28-32 RSV]

Note: The blog moderator and this website is in search of the truth. Life is short so why waste time on inflammatory political clickbait links to fake news articles. The Drudge Report once cared about truth and had many hard-hitting breaking news headlines and stories. But today that appears to be no longer the case.

“Do you get the feeling God is no longer watching over America?”

Matt Drudge posted this question on his Tweeter account back in 2013. Today we see the disorder and unraveling of the moral fabric of society, the selective enforcement of the laws, and anarchy in many Democratic/liberal-run cities across the United States. In the media and social media, we see people spiritually dead inside doing statin’s bidding spreading lies deceptions.

Divine Intervention

Please share examples of divine intervention in history (Providentialism) or American history (American Providential. Also, examples of Divine Superintendence which is the agency of God over events in people’s lives, business, government, and throughout history.
