ON THIS MEMORIAL DAY, as we are thinking about our soldiers dead, there is this time taken out to give some measure of recognition to those who gave their lives for this nation. And in the long course of our history, we can go over a long continuity of those who sacrificed, but who carried out the destiny ordained as far as the destiny of God’s kingdom is concerned. With a dedication that they would not hold back either their lives or their comfort when it came to the preservation of the structure of God’s kingdom.
These United States were a great and tremendous purpose in the mind of God. And long before this nation came into being, our forefathers understood that this was going to take place. The vision was given unto David even as he stood by the Kings pillar when he was crowned. And David was told about a land that eventually where HIS people would dwell, and from which they would not move anymore. A land that was beyond this spot where he stood now in old Jerusalem, by this pillar of the king. That eventually, we were going to see a great expansion of the program of God’s kingdom.
The prophets proclaimed such a nation, a nation of tall and clean shaven men. Looking forward to the great impact of our day. They talked about a land divided by rivers. They talked about a nation that would be great from its beginning. They talked about the ‘wings of an Eagle’ that would mark such a nation. And surely, those who have given their lives for the destiny of this nation were fulfilling the doomed destiny, that which was known in the ancient past, even to the prophets.
