I'm always drawn to those little facts of History that you just don't learn by a quick glance. The reason for this is that they bring alive to me, what I believe to be God's infallible timing.
July 4th 1776 is remembered as the day that the United States adopted the Declaration of Independence from Great Britain. It is however what happened 50 years later that got my attention.
In a remarkable coincidence, both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, the only signers of the Declaration of Independence later to serve as Presidents of the United States, died on the same day: July 4, 1826, the 50th anniversary of the Declaration.
50 is a number representing salvation and deliverance. Could it be that God stamped His approval of America's independence through this coincidence.
God's desire is for all nations to live in freedom from oppression and peace. As America celebrates its independence day tomorrow on the 4th of July, let us South African's celebrate with them for God has taught us the significance of independence in our own special day on the 10th of May, 1994.
