A Twist on 4 July – Pilgrim forefathers share the Secrets of Freedom [and how to lose it] – Our Families are Worth Fighting For

FREE Fireworks Bible Poster with Bible verse from 2 Corinthians 3:17; free printable

In his movie documentary, Monumental, Kirk Cameron discovers that the pilgrim forefathers left a monument that not only gives tribute to what was accomplished in America… but how they did it. A blueprint that, if we ever forgot, would show us the way back to what made America great; what made America free, prosperous, peaceful and successful. No matter where we live, this is a message we all need to hear. If you are concerned about where your country [not just America] is today, this movie for you. It is the secret for freedom… and also how we can lose it. Watch this clip (it’s only 15 minutes) then share this secret with your child, along with some of these FREE Public Holiday / Celebration colouring pages, puzzles, posters, crafts for kids… and remember to send lots of fun family pics.

BIBLE VERSES

2 Corinthians 3:17  …where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

THINK SPOT:  That must mean that the reverse is also true… that where the Spirit of the Lord is NOT, there is NOT freedom. Think about it. And thank God for His indescribable gift.

Galatians 5:1  Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

Psalm 119:45  And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.

Galatians 2:4  And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage.

2 Peter 2:19-21  While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.

Is the American church stirring with revival?   “When… there’s nothing you can do humanly speaking, you still can appeal to heaven.’ And George Washington grabbed this, put it on a flag and flew it over all the naval ships… It spread through all the colonies. And it really became almost the battle cry of a nation. It was the banner we were born under” …what the earliest settlers and founding fathers did for God and country should drive Americans to their knees. “When we see and understand the price that they paid and get that revelation of why they did it, and then we see now in today’s age what we’ve lost and what we’re about to lose if we don’t wake up.”
