America the Beautiful Happy Independence Day to You

America the Beautiful Happy Independence Day to You


Happy Independence Day

America the beautiful is singing

Thank you for our freedom

Liberty’s call continues ringing


To be a citizen of this great Nation

Oh an honor and a duty

Those who want to change it

Will disfigure freedom’s beauty


Freedom is truly magnificent

Not as government appeases

True freedom is from above

Not morally destructive as one pleases


Red White and Blue she proudly waves

Stars and stripes are not derogatory

America’s freedom and Independence

Boldly broadcasting the Gospels Glory





She never belittles

Does not demand

Desirous of loyalty to God

Required to keep her stand


She was created

When desire spread

To have Independence

By Christ be led


Heaven rejoices

I know it’s true

America the beautiful

Happy Independence Day to you

“Let me be clear, the Anointed One has set us free—not partially, but completely and wonderfully free! We must always cherish this truth and stubbornly refuse to go back into the bondage of our past.”

When someone is in an accident or suffers an injury, if their image is marred by physical injuries, we use the terminology,  has been disfigured. If we consider carefully these words we realize we are stating a fact or truth. And that truth is that an original design or creation has been altered or damaged or disfigured.

Disfigured: Merriam’s dictionary defines it like this. To impair by deep and persistent injuries.

Which is to take away from the created purpose and plan. How can something be disfigured unless it had been figured or was given an original figure.

So that leads us to the meaning of figure: again Merriam’s dictionary definition, a written or printed character. An often repetitive pattern or design.

And now we find ourselves full circle, leading us to the beginning, Which is God! He has a purpose and a design for everything and for every created thing. Mankind was created in His image and likeness. Sin entered through the suggestion that God was withholding something from us. Satan duped Eve, and Adam was right there listening. They did eat or buy the lie only to be cast out. Sin is fun for a season but in the end is death.

Whether we have thought about it, or considered the cause, the United States has a created and sustaining purpose. The purpose is to preach, broadcast, and proclaim the gospel to the entire world. I have heard many scholars say that the United States is not in the end time prophecies. There are one of two reasons. Either we do not hold fast to the liberty that God has granted us and take the gospel to all the world, and implode or destroy ourselves, or we have held tight to the gospel and are raptured out. I like to believe it is the second and I do truly believe this. If we look at the word Jerusalem, there we find a mystery and a message in a message. I believe the USA is right in the middle of God’s great plan.

Jer USA lem. The USA has a part in the redemption of mankind, the gospel being preached to all the world, and this is why I believe satan is after our country with a vengeance. If we buy the lie and eat it, we will be destroyed.

Thank God for His truth and for a remnant of Blood bought Christians who are praying. Those that are led by The Spirit are the son’s of God.

I have been in bondage, and I have been free. I am still free and I know it is the only way to live. Those who are arguing and fighting for immorality and sinful life styles to be openly accepted are ushering in death to themselves, and do not realize it. Bondage is definitely disfiguring.

In all my readings and studies I have never heard anyone say, I’m so glad I wasted my life and ruined others lives. No, we hear and read over and over about such persons repenting and being broken. Sorrowing deeply for the death and destruction they accepted and spread to others, only then wishing they could undo the damage. Think about it. Only freedom has beauty. Bondage is ugly and destroys Nations one soul at a time.

Happy Independence Day America. I am proud to be free.


Galatians 5:1 TPT
The perfect law of liberty.–JAS. 1:25. Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
