"MY COUNTRY 'TIS OF THEE"
~ IN GOD WE TRUST ~
America has a very special place of
distinction in the world. Though we tout that Jesus Christ, who is the same
as Jehovah of the Old Testament is our God in whom we as Americans trust,
not many realize the full extent to which Our Lord is the anounced God of
this land. And those who do refuse to recognize him and accept him as
America's God are in the jepordy of the wrath of God.
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth,
and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." ~ John
Not only does God, Jehovah/Jesus Christ, anounce to the Book of Mormon
prophet Nephi that 'He has consecrated this land ... and that this land is
a choice land unto God above all other lands' (2 Nephi 10:10), but God has
also pronounced to Moroni and other Book of Mormon prophets such as the
Brother of Jared, Mahonri Moreancumr, that 'this land is a land of promise and
all who posses this land should serve him, the true and only God, or they
will be swept off when the fulness of his wrath shall come upon them.' (Ether
2:8-10) And the prophet Moroni, who has seen our day in vision, does state,
'This cometh unto you, O Ye Gentiles, that ye may know the decrees of
God——that ye may repent, and not continue in your iniquities until
the fulness come, that ye may not bring down the fulness of the wrath of God
upon you as the inhabitants of the land have hitherto done." (Ether 2:11)
And yet doth America vote to support such a government platform which mocks
at God to niether mention his name nor recognize that he is the God of this
land as the Democrat Party has done and the voice of the American people have
so supported that party in their vote for such as the Democrat Ticket of
Barack Obama. And Moroni goes on to again state:
"Behold, this [Americas] is a choice land, and whatsoever
nation shall posses it shall be free from bondage, and from captivity, and
from all other nations under heaven, if they well but
serve the God of the land, who is Jesus Christ, who
hath been manifested by the things which we have written." ~ Ether
In this our forefathers in America got it right. This land is God's land
dedicated to living by God's laws and commandments, and receiving God's
blessings. They were inspired of HIM to form this nation dedicated to life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness; and to the freedom of worshipping of God Almighty.
And so it is that Jesus Christ, who is the same as Jehovah, is the God of
this land and so rightly we do sing the song/hymn 'America', which pronounces
him as our God and King. And this in place of the national song of Britian
which sings unto an earthly monarch rather than to that God who is our
Savior and King.
Thus to the British tune of God Save the King/Queen, America has written its
everlasting response, that the Lord Jesus Christ/Jehovah is our Great God
and our only King. We do not have any King but God whose land of promise
this America is. The early Americans who had come to this land seeking
religious freedom from pursecution knew this intuitively as the Spirit of
God did rest upon them in their quest for freedom and liberty. It is forever
written into our national documents of such declared and constitutional
rights. It is engraved upon our coinage and paper money. It is a part of our
honored pledge to this country.
AMERICAby Samuel Francis Smith
My country, 'tis of Thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrams' pride,
From ev'ry mountainside
Let freedom ring!
My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free,
Thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills;
My heart with rapture thrills,
Like that above.
Let music swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees
Sweet freedom's song;
Let mortal tongues awake;
Let all that breathe partake;
Let rocks their silence break,
The sound prolong.
Our father's God to Thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright,
With freedom's holy light,
Protect us by Thy might,
Great God our King.
I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America,
and to the Republic for which it stands,
one Nation under God,
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
This is the 'Pledge of Allegiance' of the United States of America. Any who
do not so pledge their undying allegiance thus is not an American. Any who
oppose such allegiance is an enemy to not only America but also unto God. To
not include God, whom we so pledge this nation to be under, is un-American.
And any such person, organization or effort to remove God from being the
recognized head of America is an enemy to Ameirca and stands in treason to
this nation, be they the ACLU, the Democrat Party, the non-belivers in this
our Great God and King, or whosoever so stands against Him our God who is
the God of this land as proclaimed in the American scriptures of the Book of
Mormon. They are not a welcome citizen of this land and they are in danger of
the wrath of God to come upon them when and as the fulness of His day and
time does come.
