This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come
2 Timothy 3:1
When the Mayflower first touched America’s shore, the Pilgrims first—before coming ashore—gathered below deck to compose The Mayflower Compact. It began, “In the name of God, amen.” In it they stated their purpose for coming to this new land: “for the glory of God and the advancement of the Christian faith.”
I believe God put a hedge of protection at that time around this country. The Bible teaches a doctrine of hedges. We can see it in the life of Job (Job 1:9-10) and in ancient Israel (Isaiah 5:1-5). And for the next three centuries America was strong—because America’s first line of defense has not been the military, but God Himself.
