Invisible Indivisible Independence Day?

From one man he created all the nations throughout the whole earth. He decided beforehand when they should rise and fall…Acts 17:26
This is the pledge of allegiance in its fullness, wisdom, simplicity, and beauty:
 We stood for the pledge in church yesterday morning.  The pledge was printed out for us in the bulletin but there was one crucial word missing.  This is what it read and this is what everyone pledged:
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stand, one nation, under God… with liberty and justice for all.
I struggled with accepting the pledge as it had been recited, and couldn’t help but ponder if this might be a prophetic silence.
Any kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and a house divided against itself will fall.  ~Jesus
We know that the U.S.A. is divided.  The last few elections have pointed out just HOW divided we are. All you have to do is #resist to see the divide.
There truly is a war going on between good and evil and it is being played out in the government right before our eyes.   We also know God’s word about every nation:
Nations are in turmoil, and kingdoms topple. The earth melts at the sound of [God’s] voice.  Psalm 46:6
Now notice the above verse crouched between two very important and very encouraging scriptures from another translation:
God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns. The nations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered; He raised His voice, the earth melted.  The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our stronghold.
Selah.…Psalm 46:5-7
We also recited the Christian pledge:
 
There also was a difference in the bulletin regarding this pledge vs the one we recited:
I pledge allegiance to the Christian Flag and to the Savior, Jesus Christ, for whose Kingdom it stands.  One Savior, crucified, risen, and coming again with life and liberty for all who believe.
Now this is a “mistake” I can accept!

This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me… In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you…~Jesus

Father God,  Protect and preserve this great country.  Cause circumstances to happen that would draw others back to the common sense and wisdom of the scriptures.  Jesus, help us to resist the devil that he may flee knowing that you came down “to” us, “for” us.  We pray this in Your Son’s name, Amen.

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.

    Thanks for reading and sharing, Jennifer. Isn’t that psalm a beautiful song for a Groom to sing over His Bride?
