Defying all common sense and reason, our American experience was forged from the mettle and spirit of a small convergence of colonists who dared to challenge the most indomitable army on the face of the earth and its King. But how did they manifest this great country if not by Divine Providence?
Franklin Graham, son of the late evangelical leader Billy Graham, is calling on Christians across the nation to join him for a prayer march in Washington, D.C., next month. The prayer march will take place Saturday, September 26, and extend 1.8 miles from the Lincoln Memorial to the Capitol building. Graham:
“I’m going to be here in our nation’s capital to pray—and I hope thousands of families, pastors, and churches will join me! Our nation is in trouble, and we need God’s help.” We need to pray now more than ever than we’ve ever done in our life,” he said. “Our communities are hurting, our people are divided, and there’s fear and uncertainty all around us.”
“So let’s join together and do the most important thing, and that is to pray. … We’re going to pray that God will intervene and save this nation.”
Franklin Graham knows the history of America and God’s hand in that history. Has she fallen out of the Almighty’s graces? Right Wire Report thinks Graham fears the course we find ourselves presently puts our nation at grave risk of losing favor with the Lord’s graces. Graham feels lifting our voices in prayer and seeking protection, mercy, and redemption to save her is imperative. What history does Franklin Graham know?
The year is 1776, August 27, and the event is The Battle of Long Island. After defeating the British in the Siege of Boston in March, Washington relocated his ragtag Continental Army to Manhattan to defend the port of New York from the British. A formidable 32,000 superior trained Redcoats outflanked Washington’s troops resulting in 20% battle losses, and surrender appeared inevitable.
Expeditiously, and unforeseeable an impenetrable fog socked in over the East River. This single occurrence facilitated the invisibility cloak as Washington maneuvered under the British noses. Slipping the naval blockade resulted in the General and his army to avoid massive casualties and elude humiliating capture. Washington, with his forces intact, assured that the revolution would go on and eventually prevail victoriously.
Historians would go on to write that this was a providential occurrence that saved the Revolution and that the fog itself had a vital role in making the United States of America. As if the heavens above intervened and God’s will was that there should come into being, the United States of America. General George Washington would later say when describing victory in driving the British from Boston without firing a shot :
“Upon their discovery of the works next morning, great preparations were made for attacking them; but not being ready before afternoon, and the weather getting very tempestuous, much blood was saved, and a very important blow, to one side or the other, was prevented. That this most remarkable interposition of Providence is for some a wise purpose, I have not a doubt.”
Samuel Adams in a speech delivered at the State House in Philadelphia, on August 1, 1776:
“There are instances of, I would say, an almost astonishing providence in our favor; our success has staggered our enemies, and almost given faith to infidels; so we may truly say it is not our own arm which has saved us. The hand of Heaven appears to have led us on to be, perhaps, humble instruments and means in the great providential dispensation which is completing. We have fled from the political Sodom; let us not look back lest we perish and become a monument of infamy and derision to the world.”
As an Empire, we share a brief history yet, one replete with examples of Divine Providence in play in our favor here, are just a few:
- The Civil War – families ripped from one another, and against one another during secession efforts very well could have torn us asunder as a nation. But through unmovable faith and God’s mercy, the country remained united as one Union. The aftermath of tattered, gaping hearts and souls prayed for healing, and miraculously the country fused whole again with God’s grace.
- Pearl Harbor in WW2 – Japan’s bold strike pierced straight through, laying waste almost our entire naval fleet gnarled across the sandy bottom of Pearl Harbor, HI. America was caught flat-footed and found our military readiness in shambles. FDR’s “a date which will live in infamy,” speech galvanized every man, woman, and child to mobilize, producing one of the massive manufacturing of military might in the shortest period. This incredible ingenuity and strength was a choice Americans made for all mankind as their efforts were paramount to victory for all. The United States sacrificed its youngest and bravest treasure on the shores of Normandy to liberate Europe, the Holocaust victims, and defeat Nazi tyranny. Victory seemed unattainable, but the lord steeled our will and steadied our faith and delivered us all to bright skies and decades of peace.
- The Cold War – An American President, A Prime Minister, and a Pope leaned on the better angels of Americans and their patience and tolerance for uncertainty as well as fear to drop The Soviet Empire to its knees. Divine hands, cradling all and averting a nuclear holocaust.
- 911 and radical Islamic terrorism – The Tower’s free fall lifted the veil of evil emerging out of the shadows on a crisp sunny morning. America, slumbering in the sense of invincibility, collapsed as each rebar gave way. Radical Islam determined to destroy, enslave, and conquer the infidels shook the foundations of peace we took for granted since the defeat of communism decades before. Once again, The United States lifted the weight of defending Western Civilization against a dedicated barbaric enemy. America knows this burden and understands the cost; however, Divine Providence stiffens our resolve to face all perils for humanity. We are the Sentinels at the gates.
Today, our county is on life support as many forces line up to yank the cord. America and the rest of the world are suffering through the unraveling of societal norms, physically, mentally, spiritually, morally, and economically amid a global pandemic. Just like the Fabian Socialists in the 1930s, or the Students for a Democratic Society, Weathermen (a left-wing terrorist organization, responsible for bombing the Pentagon and Police stations and killing police)of the 1960s, the Socialist/Communists/Marxists have re-emerged. These overlapping and often interchangeable ideologies have festered and fomented for decades by indoctrination in cultural pillars such as; Education – Hollywood-Music-Politics-Media, and religious institutions, here.
There can be no more denying that America has been infiltrated from within, and a revolution is well underway, flashing across your social media screens, in the halls of government, and on the burning city streets across this land. The goal is perpetual fear and chaos until the citizenry is so demoralized it no longer believes in Divine Providence. The objective is to dismantle and erase our history, therefore, destroying our constitutional republic and replacing it with communist tenets and globalist agendas. We find ourselves in the perfect storm in a technologically rapid advancing pace, and information warfare driving and supporting collectively shared mass delusions.
The United States and the Western World has never before been victims of the level of propaganda it is presently. In a reality where truth is negotiable or scripted by the most powerful – where does one turn? Franklin Graham’s answer and the historical record of our nation is – God.
This palpable hate and rage are less about the personality traits and style of President Trump and everything to do with gas lighting and Identity Politics. The left in our country, those pillars described earlier, have spent decades dividing us into victims and those who they deem victimized us. Disinformation campaigns have pitted neighbor against neighbor, family against family, even spouse against spouse. Democrat social engineering legislation has created a wide swath of Americans dependent on staying victims, here. Add the fiat currency and fractional banking game, here. Now, layer in on top of all this a systematic insidious destruction of the nuclear family and decay of core beliefs and values shared by Americans related to massive/dysfunctional immigration negative impacts, one ends up here – a country in critical condition.
So many across our country have been worn down mentally and spiritually and feel chained up by fear. The left has been escalating their intimidation tactics, no longer content to censure free speech or Dox with cancel culture, they have moved to physical violence and real threats to person and property. But it is important to grasp that cowards have no free will, and there is strength in numbers. Apathy, isolation, and silence at this juncture is complicity.
Right Wire Report recognizes that COVID and possible financial considerations might limit you from traveling to the D.C. area to participate in the Prayermarch2020. If at all possible, go and be heard and seen. But if you are not able to attend the D.C. event, we encourage you to organize one in your own community on the same day. There is ample time to do so. A good resource may be to link up with Back the Blue rally organizers in your area to combine an event; the information here. Another resource would be your local Tea Party or Trump group, usually on Facebook. Perhaps coordinate through your church or a worship facility in your area. And as always, you could choose to contact Prayermarch2020 directly on their website to inquire about suggestions and or support. Remember to promote the D.C. March and any gathering you are able to organize across our social media platforms and or write a local newspaper Op-Ed.
Close your eyes – Imagine it is Saturday, September 26th, and the nation turns on their news fixes to witness hundreds of thousands in Washington DC and in cities and small towns across America (mini marches) coming together safely and peacefully to lift our voices in prayer for healing, strength, unity, and Divine Providence -protection from God.
The only salient question to be asked of Americans now is, do you believe in Divine Providence? If you do, then you believe God has given the United States the means to overcome all that attempts to befell her if we have the will to stand up and defend and protect her. So do we still have the will?
