We were birthed in love for freedom.
We suffered and died for our right to sovereignty.
We offered hope to the oppressed.
We turned our back on political bondage.
Was it all in vain?
Was it all to watch our flag be soiled under foot?
Was it a dream only for the weak, the poor, and the wrenched?
Was it a blind nation of liberty?
Did we give up so easily?
Did we hand over our goods to false gods?
Did we burry our dead for nothing?
Did we suffer needlessly?
Is the enemy so vague he cannot be seen?
Is he so cunning that love becomes hate?
Is he disguised as an angel of light?
Is he engaged to an unwary bride?
Will tyranny prevail?
Will lust of power prove the victor?
Will our children’s hands bear the blood of the innocent?
Will our homeland lie in waste?
Where is the face of God?
Where is truth in the heartland?
Where is religious freedom?
Where is competent unity?
It is hidden under political correctness.
It is uprooted by lack of prayer.
It is not tolerated by atheistic agendas.
It is aborted by selfish ambitions.
Once, we were a nation under God.
Once, we were a nation that was indivisible.
Once, we were a nation bathed in honor to the Lord of heaven.
Once we were a nation called the U.S.A.
I believe it stood for Under Sovereign Authority.
I believe it stood for Unity, and Strength, against Apathy.
I believe it stood for Unsurpassed Solidarity Alignment.
I believe it stood for the United States of America.
How can we flex our superiority over God?
How can we stand in liberty against the Almighty?
How can we fight for freedom if we are unjust?
How can we neglect the passion of Christ?
A warning goes out to all who have ears to hear.
A cry is heard although it may be muffled by secular humanism.
A ray of hope is given to all those who are wise of heart.
A simple, most excellent, reassuring promise awaits.
…if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
