On April 30, 1789 our first President was inaugurated into the office of the presidency of the USA.
Peter Marshall and David Manuel write, “He reached New York in time to be inauguated on April 30, 1789. Stepping out onto the outdoor balcony of Federal Hall, in full view of the assembled multitude, he requested that a Bible be brought. Having placed his right hand on the open book, he took the oath of office. And then, embarrassed at the thunderous ovation which followed, the pealing church bells, and the roaring of the artillery, the new President went inside to deliver his inaugural address to Congress.’
‘Speaking with a gravity which verged on sadness, his voice deep and tremulous, he went further than he had ever gone before in stressing the role of God in the birth of the nation:” From THE LIGHT AND THE GLORY p. 349.
“It would be peculiarly improper to omit, in this first official act, my fervent supplication to that Almighty Being, who rules over the universe, who presides in the councils of nations, and whose providential aids can supply every human defect, that His benediction may consecrate to the liberties and happiness of the people of the United States… No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the invisible hand which conducts the affairs of men more than the people of the United States. Every step by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation seems to have been distinguished by some token of providential agency… We ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained.”

My, how the leaders of our nation, and the people of our nation need to wake up and get back to the foundation of these truths.
…By the grace of God I will be voting on Tuesday November 08, 2016. I will not be voting for “the lesser of two evils”.
I will be voting for the candidate who will honor their pledge (at their inauguration) to “protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America”. I will be voting for the candidate who will defend the Second Amendment, and the people’s right to defend themselves against a tyrannical government. I will be voting for the candidate who defends the right of life to the unborn human child. I will be voting for the candidate who cares more about the citizens of this great nation, than they do about global causes. I will be voting for the candidate who will appoint Supreme Court Justices who will honor, defend, and protect the Constitution according to its original intent rather than what is culturally acceptable, or politically correct.
The reason to go vote. Your vote will make a difference.

Well! The majority of the people have spoken; and it is quite clear what our Country stands for. We stand for same sex marriage. We stand for abortion for any cause; as long as the woman has the right to choose. We stand for a redistribution of wealth. We stand for all citizens to be disarmed. We stand against the freedom of religion; and the freedom of speech.
The United States of America was founded on Biblical, Judeo/Christian principles, and we have been greatly blessed over the 236 years of being a Nation. We have had an hedge around us by the hand of God; protecting us, keeping us, guiding us. Now we are a “Progressive” (the liberal with a new name) Nation; under the protection of our government and its President.
Now, let us watch and see what the “Progressives” (the old liberal mentality) will do, and will not do.
In the mean time… I plan on living my life as I have been, with the exception of becoming a bolder, more confident Christian – a faithful follower of Jesus Christ – and speaking, for Christ, praying for our President; for his salvation, for his eyes to be opened concerning the way he leads this nation. I will be praying for the Christians of the USA to put the armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18) back on, and stand with the holy Word of God in our hands and within our hearts.
Remember Christian. The battle is not over until we hear Jesus say, “Come up here.”
