Psalms 33:12

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance.”

“Why should not the Bible, and especially the New Testament, be read & taught as a divine revelation in the schools? Where can the purest principles of morality be learned so clearly or so perfectly as from the New Testament.” (US Supreme Court 1844)

“The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court has just issued this statement: ‘Divine Providence (that’s God) has given to our people the choice of their rulers, & it is the duty… of our Christian nation to select & prefer Christians for their rulers.’” (Letter to John Murray by John Day, the first Supreme Court Judge, Oct. 12, 1816)

“Inquiries by our reporters reveal that almost every state legislature has now passed a law requiring all elected officials to take this oath: ‘I do profess faith in God the Father, & in the Lord Jesus Christ His only Son… & I do acknowledge the holy scriptures of the Old & New Testaments to be given by divine inspiration.’”

“Legislation was passed today in Congress to affirm that, ‘The Congress of the United States approves of & recommends … the Holy Bible for use in the schools.’” (Congress 1782)

The Great Awakening

Ben Franklin Quote

“It was wonderful to see the change soon made in the manners of our inhabitants. From being thoughtless or indifferent about religion, it seemed as if all the world were growing religious, so that one could not walk through the town in an evening without hearing psalms sung in different families of every street.”

1. GOD HAS A PLAN

Proverbs 16:9

“In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord directs their steps

“I know that you can do all things;
no purpose of yours can be thwarted.”

Isaiah 14:27

                “For the Lord Almighty has purposed, and who can thwart him? His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?”

3. We are due for another season of revival!
