“Resistance to tyranny becomes the Christian and social duty of each individual…
Continue steadfast and, with a proper sense of your dependence on God,
nobly defend those rights which heaven gave, and no man ought to take from us.”
John Hancock, First Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Governor of Massachusetts.
On April 15, 1775, as President of the Provincial Congress of Massachusetts, John Hancock signed “A Day of Public Humiliation, Fasting, and Prayer that read as follows:
“In circumstances dark as these, it becomes us, as men and Christians, to reflect that, whilst every Prudent Measure should be taken to ward off the impending Judgements…All confidence must be withheld from the means we use; and reposed only on that GOD who rules in the Armies of Heaven, and without whose blessing, the best human Counsels are but Foolishness – and all created Power, Vanity… that it be, hereby recommended to the good People of this Colony of all denominations, that THURSDAY the Eleventh Day of May next be set apart as a Day of Public Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer…to confess the sins…to implore the Forgiveness of all our Transgressions…and a blessing on the Husbandry, Manufactures, and other lawful Employments of this people; and especially that the union of the American Colonies in defense of their Rights… may be preserved and confirmed…And that AMERICA may soon behold a gracious Interposition of Heaven.” *

The Provincial Congress of Massachusetts and John Hancock’s dependence on God demonstrate the vast difference between the faith of our Founders and the people of their time when compared to the leadership of our day.
The Biden Administration is clearly not a group of people that respects, looks to, and depends on the Providential hand and power of God, to deliver the nation, as did our Founders. Instead, they are a group of ideologues who are determined to ‘transform’ America into a nation dependent on man’s vain, godless, foolish, and failed ideas of Karl Marx, carried out by Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, and an array of ignominious communist dictators from Stalin to Mao Zedong, Xi Jinping, Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, and North Korean Dictator, Kim Jong-un, all of whom were, and are, responsible for the torture, enslavement, murder, and death of untold millions in their quest for total power and control, the very opposite of American freedom.
They are not people who look to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob for wisdom and strength to preserve a government Of, BY, and FOR the People; nor are they respectful of the values, principles, and righteousness of the Living and Eternal Word of God, the people of America – and the world under Marxist leadership – long for.
Their track record of ignoring our Constitution and laws; the outcry of the American people as they watch their freedoms, jobs, families, and children manipulated and trampled underfoot with unlawful and useless dictatorial ‘mandates’; while refusing to protect our borders and uphold immigration laws; leaving hundreds of Americans and thousands of Afghans to the whims of a brutal and murderous terrorist regime, calling it a “Victory”, is sufficient evidence of their immoral, foolish incompetence, and inability to lead a nation whose founding, history, and national Motto is “In God We Trust”.
There is no ‘proper sense of… dependence on God,’ nor commitment to
‘nobly defend those rights which heaven gave, and no man ought to take from us.’
There is No commitment to the “Eternal Rules of Order and Right” that our first President believed our nation could survive without.
As the Provincial Congress of Massachusetts led by John Hancock, said in their Proclamation of “A Day of Public Humiliation, Fasting, and Prayer”, may America

II Timothy 1:7
“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house; Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Matthew 5:14-16 KJV
