One man with God is always in the majority. – John Knox
When I ponder the history of the heroes of the faith – Moses confronting the Pharaoh, David confronting Goliath, Gideon and his small army of 300 standing against the oppressive Midianites and King Hezekiah confronted with Sennacherib (the king of Assyria) – I remember that the odds were set against them. When observing their circumstances, I see they had every reason in the world to think that defeat was on the horizon.
Odds do not win a war
In America, we can look back to our forefathers, namely all 56 signers, and we know the odds were set against them as well. Our small colonial army was fighting against a tyrant who had the strongest military in the world – a tyrant who was opposing them at every turn, even willing to send foreign mercenaries to destroy their families as they were set to steal away everything that rightfully belonged to them.
In the present, similar circumstances surround the American people on a daily basis. We the People are confronted with assaults to our foundations – both biblically and constitutionally – not from an enemy without, but an enemy within.
With every true-life scenario before us, I have noticed the direction these courageous men and women took without fail. They always set their face toward heaven, and they called upon the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in Jesus’ name. Because they were willing to meet God on His terms (Isaiah 66:2) and were prepared to fight for their rights, God answered them mightily (1 Timothy 1:18-19).
Do the Math
Case in point: I came across the following statistics, which lay out my premise perfectly:
- During the Revolutionary War, only 3 percent of the people actually fought against Great Britain.
- Only 10 percent of the citizens actively supported that 3 percent.
- Approximately 20 percent considered themselves to be on the side of the Revolution, but they did not actively participate.
- Toward the climatic end of the war, approximately 30 percent actually fought on the side of the British.
- The rest of the citizens had no disposition either way. They didn’t care. They didn’t want anything to do with what they deemed to simply be a political issue.
Our founders and our biblical heroes are a great cloud of witnesses (Hebrews 12) that God is willing to answer us if we are willing to take Him at His word, “appeal to Heaven” and claim that there is “no king but King Jesus” in America. These were the mottoes of the Revolution, and they must be our mottoes today if we want to see the same victorious results.
As Martin Luther King Jr. rightly stated,
When people get caught up with that which is right and they are willing to sacrifice for it, there is no stopping point short of victory.
America, you still have the freedom to do the right thing.
