Cuomo Boasts of Low COVID Infections: ‘God Did Not Do That’The Daily Wire | April 14, 2020 

“If you take the eight counties around New York City – and made it a separate nation.Those eight counties would constitute the country with the MOST COVID-19 cases in the world.”“And the rest of the US would rank as the eleventh highest number of cases of any country in the world.” Governor Huckabee (4.20.20)

 “IN THAT DAY a man will look to his Maker, and his eyes will have respect for the Holy One of Israel.” Isaiah 17:7

“That Day” in Scripture
·   DISTINCT DAY
·   MARKED OUT IN ADVANCE 
·   A RADICAL CHANGE IN PERSPECTIVE
·   REQUIRES NEW STRATEGIES

GOD PERMITTED & ORDAINED CIVIL GOVERNMENT 
Romans 13:1 “Let every soul be SUBJECT to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.”

Acts 5:29 “We ought to OBEY God rather than men.”
The most brilliant thing our founders did was to believe in freedom
·      Winning freedom – 1776
·      Ordering freedom – Constitution 
·      Sustaining Freedom – Every Generation Etched in the marble of the Jefferson Memorial
“God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever” Thomas Jefferson

1 Peter 3:18 “ For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit.”

Which Revolution? America (1776) or French (1789)
Sir Richard Sutton read a copy of a letter relative to the government of America from a [Crown-appointed] governor in America to the Board of Trade [in Great Britain] showing that…If you ask an American, “Who is his master?” He will tell you he has none – nor any governor but Jesus Christ.”Freedom Fails when:
·      Excess leads to license 
·      Safety is prized above all else 
·      Everything is justified in the name of freedom

Freedom Requires: 

Alexis de Tocqueville “the habits of the heart;” Os Guinness “the golden triangle” 
·      Virtue
·      Faith
·      Freedom

GOD RULES AND HAS THE FINAL WORD
Samuel Adams (signer of the Declaration of Independence), “The Rights of the Colonists as Christians. . . may be best understood by reading and carefully studying the institutes of the great Law Giver and Head of the Christian Church, which are to be found clearly written and promulgated in the New Testament.”God…
