Our subject, THE EAGLE AND THE SERPENT deals with symbolism. For us to think about such symbolism on this Fourth of July is very important and significant because this is the day on which we celebrate the birth of our nation. July 1776, marked the day a great nation with the hope and expectation of our race, was born into this world order, established here in these United States. In that hour a people who desired liberty and freedom, and who had a great determination to serve God, declared their independence. The force which created the necessity for this independence was none other than the enemies of Christian civilization who were moving to gain economic control over all the Christian nations of Europe. They had ensnared and entrapped a part of the British Empire, then Britain; and as England was under the power of this enemy’s economy, their kind was forced into a program of taxation against the colonies. Powerful financial and anti-Christian forces intended to create a snare which they hoped would put all the colonies and the colonial territories under their power forever.
