Where is the USA in the Bible?
“The kingdom of God shall be taken from you,
and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof
(Matt 21:43)
It is impossible that Almighty God the Creator of heaven and earth
could have somehow missed the era of the United States of
America? Surely God foresaw the USA. Therefore we ask, “Why
is it that there is no mention of this great nation in the Scriptures?”
Surely this most blessed nation in the history of mankind, this nation
that is the primary sponsor of the worldwide Gospel can be located
somewhere in the Scripture!
We are going to make an amazing discovery concerning these United
States of America! Like a spiritual Columbus, we are going to come
upon the fascinating discovery of the USA in the pages of the Bible!
We are going to explore amazing Scriptural patterns, which identify the
United States as the nation that God Almighty chose long ago to preach
the gospel in all the world as a witness unto all nations!
After we observe these patterns we will explore the question, “If the United
States of America has been selected by God to preach the gospel, then will not
the Almighty judge this nation more severely?’ After all, scripture says, “that
judgment must begin at the house of God (1 Peter 4:17); Jesus went on to
say, “unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required” (Luke
12:48). Once we have unmistakably identified the USA in the Bible, we will
attempt to bring clarity to the events of these days in which we live!
Some claim that the USA is modern Babylon and is therefore fated to receive God’s
judgment; others claim that we are more closely associated with the Romans.
Which of these two allegorical types is closest to the truth?
We will answer that question
though this Bible Study!
America has been a superpower
in the world for the last fifty
years. Indeed today, we are the
indesputed superpower of our
time; in the same way, Rome
was the sole superpower during
the time of Jesus Christ. The
major Roman emblem was the
eagle ( as shown at right );

Where is the USA in the Bible?
“The kingdom of God shall be taken from you,
and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof
(Matt 21:43)
likewise, the foremost American symbol is the bald eagle ( shown at left )! The Roman
government was composed of a senate that met on the hill named Capitolina; in the same
fashion, the United States of America has the Senate meeting on Capitol Hill! Rome’s
populace was obsessed with entertainment; they regularly attended sports arenas where
they always opened games by pledging allegiance to Rome and singing the Roman anthem.
In the same fashion, America is obsessed with games played in modern arenas where the
national anthem always precedes the games! Roman buildings were built according to
Greek and Roman architecture; likewise, the United States Governmental buildings are of
Greek and Roman architecture.
We can see at least from a physical perspective that America is an image of ancient Rome.
However, and more importantly, let’s take a look at America from a spiritual perspective.
You may be surprised to learn that spiritually, America is an image of ancient Israel!
Notice some of the correlations between these two nations. Israel miraculously crossed the
Red Sea during the birth of that nation; likewise the puritans crossed the sea with the
miraculous help of Almighty God during the birth of this nation! Israel started out with 13
tribes ( when counting the two tribes that sprang from Joseph ); likewise our nation stated
out with 13 original colonies! After King Solomon, the nation of Israel split into two
kingdoms ( The House of Judah in the south & the House of Israel in the north ); in fact, the
first time that we find the word “Jews” in the Bible, they are at war with Israel! Notice that
amazing passage, “Then Rezin king of Syria and Pekah son of Remaliah king of Israel
came up to Jerusalem to war : and they besieged Ahaz, ( king of Judah ) but could not
overcome him. 6 At that time Rezin king of Syria recovered Elath to Syria, and drave the
Jews from Elath” (2 Kings 16:5-6). In the same fashion, America’s most costly war in
terms of loss of life and casualties was the war between the north and the south! Thirteen
tribes and thirteen colonies is but the beginning of the correlation that we will discover.
If there were a number
associated with the United
States it would certainly be
thirteen. However, doesn’t the
Great Seal of the United States
have negative connotations
since it is so closely associated
with the number thirteen?
Observe the many thirteens
associated with the Great Seal
of the United States of
America ( shown above ): there
are thirteen steps on Pyramid;
thirteen letters in the words,
“Annuit Coeptis;” thirteen letters in the phrase, “E Pluribus Unum;” thirteen stars above the
eagle ( in the shape of the Jewish Magen David ); thirteen plumes of feathers on each span

and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof
(Matt 21:43)
of the eagle’s wings; thirteen bars on the eagle’s shield; and thirteen leaves on the olive
branch.
We have learned in previous studies that “rebellion” and the number thirteen are closely
tied together; notice the negative connotation associated with the first Biblical occurrence
of the concept of thirteen, “in the thirteenth year they rebelled .” The English name Judas
Iscariot ( who betrayed - rebelled against- Jesus ) has thirteen letters. Without doubt,
thirteen definitely has negative connotations! If you would like to learn more about what
those negative connotations are you can download or print a copy of the Rivkah Ministries
Bible Study entitled, “Revelation Part 13 (The Beast)” from http://www.Rivkah.org .
Since the United States is so closely associated with thirteen and therefore by implication
“rebellion,” how could the United States of America be a spiritual picture of Israel?
Without question, thirteen has sinister connotations; however, most people do not realize
that the number thirteen also has a Jehovah connection! The very name Jehovah YHVH
has a numerical value of 26, (2 x 13.) Notice that through gematria all of the following
Patriarchal personalities share a numerical factor of 13: Abraham, 104 = (8 x 13;) Isaac,
208 = (16 x 13;) Jacob, 182 = (14 x 13;) also his new name Israel, 546 = (42 x 13;) and
Joseph, 156 = (12 x 13;)! Even Moses fits this pattern, 351 = (27 x 13.) We find that the
numerical value of the Hebrew name for Jesus is 391 and can be reduced (3+9+1) to 13!
The point is that thirteen is like a coin with two sides; it also has a positive connotation!
Therefore, the fact that the USA has thirteen so indelibly etched into its national identity is
not necessarily an ominous sign. Indeed, we are going to examine how the United States is
actually a spiritual picture of the nation of Israel! However, if the USA does truly portray
Israel then we should expect to find that many of the patterns associated with the United
States will also match with patterns of Israel.
We will investigate these many patterns; however, first let’s take a look at a very
significant ( to this topic ) parable given by Jesus, “Hear another parable: There was a
certain householder ( God the Father ), which planted a vineyard ( House of Israel ), and
hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to
husbandmen ( Ancient Jewish Leaders ), and went into a far country: 34 And when the time
of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants ( the Prophets ) to the husbandmen, that they
might receive the fruits of it. 35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and
killed another, and stoned another. 36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and
they did unto them likewise. 37 But last of all he sent unto them his son ( Jesus Christ ),
saying, They will reverence my son. 38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said
among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his
inheritance. 39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him. 40
When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?
41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his
vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons. 42
Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders

rejected , the same is become the head of the corner : ( We learned from our study of
Revelation Chapter Twenty-two that Jesus is the headstone. ) this is the Lord's doing, and it
is marvellous in our eyes? 43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be
taken from you, and given to a nation ( who, when, where is this nation? ) bringing forth
the fruits thereof. Lets look to the prophet Isaiah to help interpret Jesus’ parable, “For the
vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel , and the men of Judah his pleasant
plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a
cry” (Isa 5:7).
Our question is, “To which other nation was the Lord’s vineyard given?” Most people
might believe that the church in general is that new nation, “But ye are a chosen
generation , a royal priesthood, an holy nation , a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth
the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light” (1 Peter
2:9). Perhaps in a figurative sense the church is that nation; but within which physical
nation has the Church of God most flourished?
Lets begin in earnest to look at the prophetic symbolism of Israel and the United States of
America. We have learned through recent studies from the Book of Revelation that God
regularly reveals things through signs and symbols! It follows since Jesus Christ is, “the
same yesterday, and to day, and for ever” (Heb 13:8), that if God has chosen the USA then
He certainly will have left signs and symbols that will identify His hand on this nation.
Jesus specifically revealed the existence of a “ nation , ” “ The kingdom of God shall be
taken from you, and given to a nation . ” Therefore, the Lord must have known that there
would have to be a specific future people that He would use. Let’s study the Hebrew and
American spiritual connection! It is one of the most fascinating elements to discover in
scripture; we will start by examining the period when America was originally founded?
Columbus was on the boat 71 days from the 10th of AV. Seventy is the number of
punishment to God, “And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and
these nations shall serve the king of Babylon seventy years ” (Jer 25:11). It is interesting
that Columbus put off sailing one day so that he would not sail on the 9th of AV ( The day
that the Jewish Temple was destroyed, both times! ). Columbus “happened” to reach
landfall on the eighth day of the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles called by the Jews ( the
concluding day of wandering ). Perhaps the most famous event that ever took place on this
Last Great Day in Jewish History was the dedication of the Jewish Temple by Solomon;
some have wondered if Columbus symbolically dedicated a new temple on the day that he
set foot in the new world! Columbus believed that God had sent him on his mission to help
bring the Jewish people into a homeland! In fact, He set sail on the day that the Spanish
Inquisition officially expelled the Jews from Spain!
The Puritans referred to themselves as fellow Jewish citizens! They founded various towns
like Bethlehem, Zion and other such towns with clear Hebraic overtones. Indeed, the

famous Bay Colony was first called New Jerusalem . In fact, they originally adopted the
Mosaic Law to be the law that would govern the new settlement.
In the late 1970’s a stone was discovered in New Mexico upon which all Ten
Commandments had been carved. The amazing thing is that it was carved using the most
ancient Hebrew characters from around the era of 1000 B.C!
America is named after Amerigo Vespucci an Italian who helped outfit Columbus’
voyages. The Italian name “Amerigo” means “rich in wheat!” The pilgrims that came on
the Mayflower to the new world came from Britain. By the way the word “British” can be
derived from two Hebrew words: Brit = covenant and Ish = people therefore, the word
“British” from the perspective of the Hebrew language, literally means “covenant people!”
The people first settled in a town called Jamestown; the Hebrew name for James is Jacob!
Therefore, the name Jamestown literally translates to the name Jacobs town!
In December 1606 three ships carrying 144 men left England for the new world. On May
14 th 1607 they landed in Jamestown. It is no coincidence that on the same day 341 years
later, May 14th ( 1948 ), that the modern nation of Israel was founded! In the same way that
Jacob supplanted the people with which he came into contact in the Old Testament, so the
people who settled in Jamestown ( Jacob’s town ) supplanted the original American Indians!
Notice from the map of Cape Cod ( shown at
right ) how it naturally forms the shape of the
Hebrew Letter ( b ) Bet which means “house!”
Notice Plymouth on the western side of the
cape. This brings to mind the Psalm, “Except
the LORD build the house , they labour in vain
that build it” (Ps 127:1)!
After the children of Israel crossed into freedom
from Egypt they soon learned about the concept
of jubilee ( liberty ,) “Then shalt thou cause the
trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day
of the seventh month, ( We will get back to this
10 th day of the 7 th month. ) in the day of
atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound
throughout all your land. 10 And ye shall
hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty
throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye
shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.”
(Lev 25:9-10). This is a “jubilee” scripture, which means 50! Has God set a symbol on the
American flag, which proudly displays fifty stars? Remember that fifty is Biblically
associated with liberty?

Where is the USA in the Bible?
“The kingdom of God shall be taken from you,
and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof
(Matt 21:43)
We have learned during our study of Revelation that Biblical
numbers have a great deal of significance. With that concept in
mind we are going to study the numbers 42; 43; and 44! Kings
Saul, David and Solomon each ruled for forty years ( one hundred
and twenty years all together )! After King Solomon’s rule there
was a split in the kingdom; twenty kings ruled over Judah and
nineteen kings ruled over Israel; this made a total of 39 kings who
ruled after the monarch was divided. When we include Saul,
David and Solomon, we arrive at 42 total kings who ruled over the
children of Israel.
Remember, we are looking for patterns of ancient Israel which
match with patterns of the United States! When we take a look at
the 42 nd king ( Zedekiah ) we discover some important aspects. In
the 11 th year of Zedekiah’s reign the Babylonians ( modern Iraqis )
invaded Jerusalem and the Jews went into captivity ( bondage )
during his rule. There are two major reasons for Israel’s captivity
by the time of king Zedekiah: (1) they stopped serving the true
God of Israel; and (2) the nation slipped into moral decay.
George Washington was the first president of the USA, and Bill
Clinton was the 42 nd president. Under president number 42 the
Monica Lewinski calamity was merely an outward manifestation
of the fact that the nation’s ethical moorings had totally broken
down! After the presidential scandal, a little twelve-year-old girl
in Tennessee was arrested for having oral sex with several boys.
She defended herself by argueing that the same activity was okay
for the president! Since those dark days, the nation has focused
upon using the law to remove the Ten Commandments from
judicial courts. At the same time, rogue judges are forcing
governmental authorities to recognize “same-sex marriages!”
So how does 42 and 43 relate to us today? Obviously, George W
Bush happens to be the 43 rd President. We can best understand the
correlation between Israel’s kings and US presidents by observing
Jesus ( the King of Kings ). In order to understand more clearly we
must research the generations in the genealogy of Jesus Christ,
“So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen
generations ; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon
are fourteen generations ; and from the carrying away into
Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations ” (Matt 1:17). This
means that there are 42 generations until Jesus Christ! He is the

“The kingdom of God shall be taken from you,
and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof
(Matt 21:43)
42 nd . All we need to do is discover the identity of the 43 rd generation and we will be on our
way.
Notice how God views the church, “But ye are a chosen generation , a royal priesthood, an
holy nation ” (1 Peter 2:9). Notice what David wrote, “A seed shall serve him; it shall be
accounted to the Lord for a generation (Ps 22:30). If the church is that “seed” then the
implication is that the church does not represent many generations. Instead each successive
generation goes through a “course;” as Paul said, “I have finished my course , I have kept
the faith” (2 Tim 4:7). When Paul went to be with the Lord, he passed the baton on to
Timothy! In God’s eyes, the church is not composed of several generations; instead each
successive era is simply running its own course of the same long 43 rd generation! Let’s
find out why is the number 43 so important in Biblical connotations.
This brings us back to the 10 th day of the seventh month ( The Day of Atonement , perhaps
the most holy day of the Hebrew calendar, ) the High Priest would sprinkle blood from a
bull and a goat on the various elements within the tabernacle. The High Priest would
sprinkle the elements 43 times! This suggests that 43 sprinklings happens to be the number
associated with atonement!
When Jesus poured out His blood during his death upon the cross, His Bride was born!
She is composed of the entire the 43 rd generation of the Church! The Church becomes the
43 rd generation. In the Old Testament, the atonement took place on the 43 rd sprinkling!
The first president of the United States went by the name George W. The 43 rd president of
the United States goes by the name George W. They both attended the same Methodist
church in Washington. We have studied in an earlier Bible Study entitled, “ The Solomon
Concept; ” available on the Internet at http://www.Rivkah.org that history repeats itself.
Solomon wrote, “The thing that hath been , it is that which shall be ; and that which is done
is that which shall be done : and there is no new thing under the sun” (Eccl 1:9). The point
is that history repeats itself!
The number four is symbolic of the earth. On the fourth day, God set the heavens in the
proper relationship with earth. The number four represents the relationship of the earth
with the heavens which are used to measurement time, seasons, and history. The earth has
four major directions ( north, south, east, and west ). The earth has four seasons ( summer,
autumn, winter, and spring ). Four rivers flowed out from the Garden of Eden ( north,
south, east, and west ). The number 44 can be very dangerous (11 ( rebellion ) X 4 ( the
world ))! That interesting number can mean worldliness! Perhaps the 44 th president will
take the United States along with the rest of the world into the prophesied Babylonish
system. We all need to realize that the 44 th generation of Israel ended up in the bondage of
Babylon ( Iraq )! Now let’s observe that when the 44 th president comes into office that there
will very likely be a very significant transition period! We are going to discover how the
transition will go from “atonement” to “worldliness!”

Where is the USA in the Bible?
“The kingdom of God shall be taken from you,
and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof
(Matt 21:43)
We are next going to discover that the United States will experience the end of several
important cycles between the years 2007-2008. Therefore, the selection of the next
president may be one of the most critical selections in the history of our republic!
What does it mean that 2007-2008 completes a major cycle for America? Do you
remember when the original settlers first landed in Jamestown? That date was May 14 th
1607! Now notice the passage where Abraham was told, “Know of a surety that thy seed
shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict
them four hundred years ” (Gen 15:13). A Biblical period of four hundred years ends with
“transition!” Israel was in bondage four hundred years then transitioned out of bondage!
From the time of the Book of Malachi until John the Baptist was a 400-year period; indeed,
Jesus said, “the Law and the prophets are until John;” then transition took place with His
ministry. In 1517 the Turks took over Jerusalem and four hundred years later in 1917 the
British took Jerusalem from the hands of the Turks. In is interesting that 400 = 8 ( new
beginnings ) X 50 ( Jubilee or freedom ).
It was on America’s first settlement in 1607 where the people literally planted a cross in the
ground and dedicated the land to Jesus! From 1607 until 2007 is the conclusion of a four
hundred year period and the beginning of a transition! Prior to the rise of the ten kings of
prophecy in the Book of Revelation, we should look for one of two major trends that will
manifest in the next four years: (1) the USA will either go into isolationism from the rest of
the world or (2) it will join itself with the prophetic rise of the EU. Another final point to
consider concerning this time-frame is that the Jewish New Year starts in September;
therefore, in a Biblical sense the year 2008 starts in September of 2007!
We have already mentioned that marriage is under a severe attack in this nation! Notice
the early Biblical context in which the institution of marriage was first mentioned, “And
Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called
Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and
his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh ” ( Gen 2:23-24 ).
That same institution of marriage, which was established by God Almighty by the second
chapter of Genesis, is now clearly under attack! Christians are the individuals ( citizens of
the nation chosen by God ) who are assigned with the specific responsibility to defend the
Scriptures within our existing governmental structure ( rule of the people )!
So we have learned that we are coming to the end of an important 400-year time cycle, the
end of which will certainly be a transition! However, there is a second important forty-year
time cycle that will also come to a conclusion at the same time! Now let’s understand that
forty years is a Biblical period known as a “generation of unbelief,” “When your fathers
tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years . 10 Wherefore I was grieved with
that generation ” (Heb 3:9-10). The point is that in 1967, Jerusalem was reestablished as
the gem of Israel, “When the LORD shall build up Zion ( Jerusalem in 1967 ), he shall
appear in his glory” (Ps 102:16)! When we take the year 1967 and add forty years we
arrive at 2007!

Where is the USA in the Bible?
“The kingdom of God shall be taken from you,
and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof
(Matt 21:43)
Forty years will have transpired since the city of Jerusalem once again came under Israeli
control. Therefore, 2007-2008 is the conclusion of another important period ( a generation
of unbelief ). Along with that cycle is the cycle of 1607 + 400 years which comes to fruition
in 2007. This is not insignificant that the year 2007-2008 is the end point of two
important Biblical cycles ! Without question, important transitions are going to take place
at the end of those two coincident but unrelated cycles.
However, there is more! We have already observed a 400-year cycle and a 40-year cycle.
Another lesser-important time cycle will come to an end in 2007-2008. The president that
is selected to lead the USA during this next ( November ) election will serve a 4-year cycle
until the end of 2007! This is of importance to us because presidents select federal judges!
At present, unjust judges are marrying ( homosexuals ) in opposition to God. At the same
time a judge in Alabama who put the Ten Commandments in the state capitol was fired.
Nobody wants to mention that, the Ten Commandments currently exists on a monument in
the Supreme Court of the United States.
The question for America is, “Will the next leader, who will face the important transition of
the year 2007-2008, be the 43 rd or the 44 th president? What difference does it make?
We must realize that marriage is the first institution ordained of God; therefore, marriage is
a “sacred union.” It was created before any human culture or society ever existed;
therefore the institution of marriage ( between one man and one woman ) predates and is
therefore superior to any civil authority ! We must keep this in mind, because human
governments are intent upon fostering a massive social revolution. Their desire is to
change marriage into a purely “civil union” and totally disregard the fact that God made
marriage a “sacred union.”
Now you might think, “So what is the big deal? If homosexuals want to marry it doesn’t
hurt me; let them marry!” However, same-sex marriage has a very distinct possibility of
hurting you ! If same-sex marriage were to become merely a “civil union” according to the
state, further, if your ( any ) church were to refuse not marry individuals of the same-sex,
based upon Biblical authority, then churches may well be shut down and the clergy may be
liable to imprisonment! Today in Canada, preachers cannot read anti-homosexual passages
out of Bibles in public ( even in the church ) with out breaking the law! Society and
governmental authorities are messing with the very foundations of our government, “ If the
foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do ?” (Ps 11:3). That is a very important
and significant question! Don’t be lulled to sleep. The homosexual community has
patiently taken the last twenty years to slowly change the spin on their lifestyle by using the
much more appealing and socially acceptable title, “GAY!” There is nothing gay about
rebelling against God’s Word! If Christians will not stand up for their freedoms associated
with the Bible now, then they are destined loose those freedoms later!
Are Christians responsible for what is taking place in the secular ( non-spiritual ) arena?
God’s word has a lot to say about civil government! In fact, the concept of government

“The kingdom of God shall be taken from you,
and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof

based upon representation, originates from the Bible! Notice how Moses’ father-in-law
( with the help of the Holy Spirit ) influenced Moses. He told him to select “out of all the
people able men, such as fear God , men of truth, hating covetousness ; and place such
over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers
of tens : 22 And let them judge the people at all season” (Ex 18:21-22). This is a
representative-based form of government while the children of Israel were still wandering
in the wilderness! Moses could not have chosen these leaders by himself; Israel was
probably well over one million people! Notice that the qualifications of these leaders are
the same qualifications that we ought to rely upon today, “ able men, such as fear God ,
men of truth, hating covetousness!
We who live in the United States of America are responsible to choose out from among
ourselves, “leaders!” Since 1992, the Christian vote has dropped by 40%! If Christians are
not influencing elections they are abrogating their responsibility; you can sure expect that
the devil has his influence! So are Christians Biblically responsible for their leaders, let’s
observe the Scriptural answer to this question, “When the righteous are in authority, the
people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn ” (Prov 29:2).
If we Christians continue to put godly people into office, we will change the direction of
this country! Christians of the New Testament were accused of, turning, “the world upside
down!” (Acts 17:6) Today’s 40% drop in the Christian vote is a far cry from that activism!
It is our job to choose Senators and Presidents who respect life and the word of God!
Notice the political picture during the time of the rebuilding of the temple, “ set magistrates
and judges , which may judge all the people that are beyond the river, all such as know the
laws of thy God ; and teach ye them that know them not . 26 And whosoever will not do the
law of thy God, and the law of the king, let judgment be executed speedily upon him
(Ezra 7:25-26)!
Let all of us realize and protect the precious responsibility that the Lord has given to us!
We must register to vote and then vote for those who will uphold the laws of the Almighty
God! You can register by going online at http://www.operationvote.com .
Do not be fooled by the arguments that the economy needs to grow in order to make this
nation stronger! Notice the Scriptural teaching as to what makes nations strong,
Righteousness exalteth a nation ! (Prov 14:34). Stand up and be counted; if the Lord
tarries we must do our best to shape the society that we are leaving to our children!
The greatest president of the United States set his signature and the seal of the United States of America to the

and . . .
Whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men to own their dependence upon the overruling power of
God, to confess their sins and transgressions in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance
will lead to mercy and pardon, and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and
proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord ;
And, insomuch as we know that by His divine law nations, like individuals, are subjected to punishments
and chastisements in this world, may we not justly fear that the awful calamity of civil war which now
desolates the land may be but a punishment inflicted upon us for our presumptuous sins, to the needful end of
our national reformation as a whole people? We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of
Heaven ; we have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity; we have grown in numbers,
wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown . But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the
gracious hand which preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us , and we have
vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior
wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel
the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us.
It behooves us, then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to
pray for clemency and forgiveness. . . ABRAHAM LINCOLN
