This is an excerpt from the Introduction:
God had a vision for America that was greater than just a haven for European immigrants. God had a vision of America that more closely resembled Heaven as described in Rev 7:9-10: “ After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.”
Acts 17:26 (NKJV) says that God “has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings.” The NIV version reads like this, “From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands.” When I apply that verse to America, I see God deliberately setting up a place with specific “boundaries” and “marking out” a “preappointed time” where different nations of men, of the same blood, would come together. It’s as if I see God looking across time to determine when He would bring together a multi-ethnic group, a red-white-black-brown-yellow nation of people to honor Him and seek Him and be a reflection of what Heaven would be like.
