IT IS ONLY FITTING THAT WE UPON THIS MEMORIAL DAY, as Christian Americans, recognize that this great Nation, under God, has a Great Destiny, and was planned and purposed to do a Mighty Work, from the foundation of the world. That in the days of the writing of the prophecies in the Book of Isaiah, it was made known unto Isaiah and recorded in his Book that this Great Nation would have the symbol of the Outstretched Wings of the Eagle, Isaiah 19. That it would be a Nation powerful from its beginning. From this time onward it would be a Nation blessed with the many rivers which would divide it. A land which was to expand through out the courses of time into a mighty commitment unto God. The Prophecies made concerning this Nation was that it would be a leader among the Nations of God’s Kingdom. And during the hours of great trial and struggle it would stand out as one of the great forces, as a geo‑political centre for the Kingdom of God.
So, we have the privilege of being citizens of such a Nation. And this Nation would not be here if it wasn’t for the dedicated effort upon the part of those who had dedicated their lives, even all that was involved in their living, and the complete structure of their destiny, for the preservation of their society. They dedicated their lives and their fortunes, and their sacred honour, for this purpose. It is only fitting that there is a memorial day in a Nation like this, because as we have this memory of what we call our Soldier Dead, there is something which transpires in our consciousness that transcends this, for there is no death.
