Shalom! My name is Nechemyah Levi and I am 10 years old and Home schooled and in 7th grade
I would like to start off by thanking God for my parents my brother and sisters for helping me to live the life I live in America because most children don’t have parents or brothers and sisters to encourage them in the faith of Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord. I would also like to thank you for coming to celebrate July 4th with us today. My deep appreciation goes to God on account of the Pilgrims and the puritans who first casted the vision for America when they landed here in MA in 1620. They came here to fulfill the Great Commission and to build America to be a city on the hill that can’t be hidden. The task is now upon us to carry on with their vision in the 21st century.
The founding fathers of this nation, on July 4th, 1776, (156 years,) after the pilgrims landed here in MA (in 1620) founded our country and declared it free from Great Britain. On July 4th, 1776 they established the United States of America, a constitutional republic governed by Judeo-Christian law based upon the vision of the pilgrims. Time would fail us if I were to unpack the details of the constitution of United State. Therefore, I will leave that topic for another day. So in this case, today, I would like to talk about the Founding Fathers, and what their vision was for America, and what has become America today as we know it.
I will begin with specific quotes from America’s founding fathers concerning good morals and their absolute essential presence in the core and fabric of society, especially a democratic society established on the foundation of the Judeo- Christian principle.
1. “The primary objects of government are peace, order, and prosperity of society. To the promotion of these objects, good morals are essential. Institutions for the promotion of good morals are therefore objects of legislative provision and support, and among these religious institutions are extremely useful and important. “ – Oliver Ellsworth 3rd Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and a founding father.”
2. “We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We’ve staked the future of all our political institutions upon our capacity…to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.” [1778 James Madison to the General Assembly of the State of Virginia.
3. “Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers and it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian Nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.”John Jay
4. “A government ought to contain in itself every power requisite to the full accomplishment of the objects committed to its care, and to the complete execution of the trusts for which it is responsible, free from every other control but a regard to the public good and to the sense of the people”. Alexander Hamilton
5. “When all government, domestic and foreign, in little as in great things, shall be drawn to Washington as the center of all power, it will render powerless the checks provided of one government on another, and will become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated.” Thomas Jefferson
These are the issues the founding fathers warned us about 236 years ago and now let us look at America in the 21st century under the leadership of the 44th President of USA.
The man who has been sitting in the White House for the last six years who claims to be a constitutional lawyer and the president of the free world has done everything in his power to rewrite the history of this land. He is determined to give us in this generation and beyond, his vision and his foundation for America which is completely false and different from what the pilgrims and the founding fathers have envisioned. In six years, he has done the damage to our families, our church and our country that will take at least 100 years to impossible to reverse unless God intervenes. I would like to start highlighting some quotes from the speeches the President of USA has been giving from the onset as he took control of the executive branch of our government in 2009. Listen carefully to these speeches and try to contras it with the vision of our founding fathers.
#1“The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam”
#2 “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer”
#3 “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country.”
#4 “As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.”
#5 “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.”
#6 “Islam has always been part of America”
#7 “we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities”
#8 “These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”
#9 “America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”
#10 “I made clear that America is not – and never will be – at war with Islam.”
Is this the country that we live in is the country we once knew as a Christian nation?
This is exactly what America‘s Founding Fathers told us would happen if we rejected God and the judeo Christian fabric that founded our country.
Since Obama took office in 2009 to the present, America has become the most liberal, social engineered and islamized country in the world. 26 years ago, my father, followed the vision of the pilgrims and like thousands of other who came here seeking religious freedom, he took refuge in America because of Islamic persecution of Christians in the Sudan. Today, America, the same country that was once a place of refuge for many Christians from the Middle East and other places who fled Islamic oppression and repressive regimes around the globe, has now become the same country that promote and embraces the rise of Islam and UN global agenda. We have become a country where Good is called Evil and Evil is called good.
So many people in this country like the president try to envision a different way to run this country, but it is not the same vision as the Founding Fathers had for America. This is the reason why everything is not going right for America and the country is spinning out of control.
America has slowly fallen into post Christianity. The people of God have slowly grown cold and have decided to turn their back on Christ and many have asked the question, whether there is any hope for America ? Well there is and here it is. Jeremiah 29:11, “for I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Proverbs 24:14 Know also that wisdom is sweet to your soul; if you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.
Proverbs 24:20 for the evil man has no future hope, and the lamp of the wicked will be snuffed out.
1 Thessalonians 1:3 we continually remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.
America has brought judgment on herself like Israel in the day of Nehemiah and Ezra. Obama’s presidency is reflection of collective sins of a nation. She must now repent and seek God for forgiveness for the sin she has committed against God. It is only God who can remedy and restore her. America was built on the vision of Judeo- Christian, Not on Islam, Not on UN social engineering and certainly not on the destruction of the unborn children. Now it will take us the church to pray and repent before God for the sins we have committed against God in America. The Bible says the judgment of God begins with God’s people. Therefore Christian families and the church in America have tough challenges to face. We either succumb and crumble under the current pressure or like in the day of Nehemiah remain steadfast in the Lord and are able to say to our detractors, “I am doing a great work and I cannot come down. Why should the work stop while I leave it and come down to you?” Nehemiah 6:3
I. We get consolation from God’s word who say “You caused judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared and was still, When God arose to judgment, to deliver all the oppressed of the earth. Selah surely the wrath of man shall praise You; With the remainder of wrath You shall gird Yourself.” [see Psalm 2:12 & Revelation 19:15]
II. Make vows to the LORD your God, and pay them;
Let all who are around Him bring presents to Him who ought to be feared. He shall cut off the spirit of princes; He is awesome to the kings of the earth. It’s God’s warning and instruction and decree to every world leader … every ‘king of the earth’ … and every person on earth … (Psalm 76:11) “Make vows to the Lord your God, and pay them” …
This administration under President Obama (and every other world leaders) stands responsibility before to God to give an account.
I will leave you all with a few words. Now knowing what we know about this country, we should try not to put a stain on God’s face by bringing judgment on God’s land that he has given to us. We are Christ ambassadors in America and the South Sudan, building cities that can’t be hidden.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
