2013 A.D.:  Is the US Flag like Sands On the Sea Shore and Stars In the Sky?

  See the pictures below!

  Abraham showed such great faith towards God that God was greatly pleased!  Here is one example, where he is told by God to literally and physically sacrifice Isaac, Abraham's loved and long awaited son from Sarah.  God would eventually sacrifice His Son Jesus on this same mountain, or allow it at any rate, and through Jesus only can a man be saved!  We should all be grateful for Abraham's show of faith!  A man showed he was willing to sacrifice his treasured son for God (though God stopped it at the last second) and God one day allowed His Son, dwelling in the flesh of a man, to actually be sacrificed in a similiar manner.   

 

  Genesis 22:9 - 19  KJV:

9 Then they came to the place of which God had told him. And Abraham built an altar there and placed the wood in order; and he bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar, upon the wood. 10 And Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to slay his son.

11 But the Angel of the Lord called to him from heaven and said, “Abraham, Abraham!”

So he said, “Here I am.”

12 And He said, “Do not lay your hand on the lad, or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear God, since you have not withheld your son, your only son, from Me.”

13 Then Abraham lifted his eyes and looked, and there behind him was a ram caught in a thicket by its horns. So Abraham went and took the ram, and offered it up for a burnt offering instead of his son. 14 And Abraham called the name of the place, The-Lord-Will-Provide;[b] as it is said to this day, “In the Mount of the Lord it shall be provided.”

15 Then the Angel of the Lord called to Abraham a second time out of heaven, 16 and said: “By Myself I have sworn, says the Lord, because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son 17 blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies. 18 In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.” 19 So Abraham returned to his young men, and they rose and went together to Beersheba; and Abraham dwelt at Beersheba

 

  America was founded as a nation by those who wanted a place to walk in faith, in freedom of conscience as they worshiped the Holy Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.  Somewhat like Abraham, the founders of the early American colonies walked in faith, and their faith was tried and tested, and they were eventually the inheritors of great blessings from God as we have seen in this last 100 years.  Seldom has any place been blessed much more than America.  

  So, does our national flag perhaps capture the appearance of both the sands on the sea shore and the stars in the sky?  When the flag waves in the wind, does it look like the stripes that you will sometimes see on the sands at the sea shore?  Maybe America is supposed to see itself as the fortunate nation that has both knowledge of God through the Bible, a desire to serve Him and take the teachings of Jesus to the whole world, and even a great deal of resources with which to accomplish this goal.  Even with a deadly New World Order tumor sapping our health and strength, and the Democratic Party making our nation an open rotted-out outrage in the eyes of the Father, we Christian hopefuls still have enough resources to reach out to almost every part of the world that has not yet been reached with the Gospel of Christ. 

  Are we up to it?  No nation is worth the dirt it dwells on if it doesn't acknowledge the true Creator, and His Son Jesus, whose teachings have been surrounded by incomprehensible miracles in all lands where they have been taken.  Even so sinful a nation as the United States is still worth whatever the Lord says it is worth.  Maybe He that sees the future sees that we will turn away from this present course of embracing all things that would please Satan and rejecting more and more of what God calls good and wholesome.  We can pray for that, and we should, but in the mean time we can all do whatever our finances allow and whatever our hands can accomplish to reach the unreached, even if it seems very small to us.  God can do much with very little whenever He wishes.

  Are we those descendents, who are like stars in the sky and sands on the sea shore?  Probably not.  But maybe so.  If so, let's hope we can live up to that excellent inheritance.
