Psalm 33:12 “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.”
After describing the purpose of government, uplifting the importance of uniqueness, explaining the pitfalls of monarchy, and expounding upon the blessings of God, Thomas Paine decides that there is only one natural conclusion that compliments independence:
“But where say some is the King of America? I’ll tell you Friend, he reigns above, and doth not make havoc of mankind like the Royal Brute of Britain. Yet that we may not appear to be defective even in earthly honors, let a day be solemnly set apart for proclaiming the charter; let it be brought forth placed on the divine law, the word of God; let a crown be placed thereon, by which the world may know, that so far as we approve of monarchy, that in America THE LAW IS KING. For as in absolute governments the King is law, so in free countries the law ought to be King; and there ought to be no other. But lest any ill use should afterwards arise, let the crown at the conclusion of the ceremony be demolished, and scattered among the people whose right it is.”
Yes, God is to be King of America with His crowned Word as the nation’s foundation. There ought to be no other. Instead, we have supplanted our rightful leader with earthly treasure. The result is national havoc stemming from the brute of our own banality. We are no longer exceptional because we have become egotistical as we have dethroned our true leader. PLEASE PRAY THAT WE WOULD RE-CORONATE AMERICA’S RIGHTFUL KING.
