Christmas Eve

Luke, Chapter 1, verse 67-75:
67 Then Zechariah his father, filled with the holy Spirit, prophesied, saying: 68 “Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, for he has visited and brought redemption to his people.69 He has raised up a horn for our salvation within the house of David his servant, 70even as he promised through the mouth of his holy prophets from of old:71salvation from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us, 72to show mercy to our fathers and to be mindful of his holy covenant 73and of the oath he swore to Abraham our father, and to grant us that,74rescued from the hand of enemies, without fear we might worship him75in holiness and righteousness before him all our days.

My prayer is that the Lord our God will rescued the Christians in the Middle East so they might worship him in holiness and righteousness.  Indeed this prayer is needed in our own country where our government and the media have shown they hate us.

In America, we have until now had no fear in worshiping him in holiness and righteousness.  In fact the model in American since its founding has been one of “Many religions, but one covenant”. 

... God and Bible.” George Washington’s Farewell Address (1796We are certainly a blessed people because we as a whole have not abandoned the covenant, nor shall we if the vision of the Virgin Mary to George Washington at Valley Forge is true.  In it he saw that American would remain true to our creator.

"Son of the Republic…Three great perils will come upon the Republic. The most fearful is the third, but in this greatest conflict the whole world united shall not prevail against her. Let every child of the Republic learn to live for his God, his land and the Union." With these words the vision vanished, and I started from my seat and felt that I had seen a vision wherein had been shown to me the birth, progress, and destiny of the United States.[1]
