The Power Of Appealing To Heaven

Pinterest WhatsApp

One of the flags flown during the War for Independence was a simple flag with a pine tree and the words, “An Appeal To Heaven” on it, alongside a flag that bore the inscription “No King But Jesus.”  But what exactly was the reference “An Appeal To Heaven” referencing and we might also ask, did the One to whom the Appeal was made hear and respond?

Gab owner Andrew Torba recently wrote on this in an email titled “The Power Of Appealing To Heaven” and I found his words edifying and encouraging.

The Appeal to Heaven, also known as the Pine Tree Flag, is a historical banner that has long represented the fight for freedom. Recently this iconic flag has come under attack by those who seek to suppress the values it embodies.

The Appeal to Heaven Flag dates back to the early days of the American Revolution, when the colonies were seeking to break free from British rule. The flag features a green pine tree with the phrase “An Appeal to Heaven” emblazoned on a white banner beneath it. This design was inspired by the words of John Locke, a prominent philosopher and political theorist whose ideas greatly influenced the founding principles of the United States.

In his work, “Two Treatises of Government,” Locke wrote that when a government fails to protect the natural rights of its citizens, those citizens have the right to “appeal to heaven” for justice. The pine tree, a symbol of resilience and strength, was chosen to represent the colonies’ determination to fight for their rights and independence.

The flag was flown by American ships during the Revolutionary War and was used by various military units, including the Massachusetts Navy and the Washington Cruisers. Its presence on the battlefield served as a powerful reminder that the colonists’ struggle for freedom was grounded in their faith in God and their belief in the inherent rights of all men.

In recent years, the Appeal to Heaven Flag has been adopted by Christian Nationalists as a symbol of their commitment to upholding the principles of faith, freedom, and self-governance. As a Christian Nationalist myself, I have been flying the flag outside my home for over five years, and its meaning has only grown stronger for me in that time.

The flag serves as a constant reminder of the sacrifices made by our forefathers in the pursuit of liberty and the importance of maintaining a strong connection between our faith and our governance. It is a declaration that we, as Christian Nationalists, will not stand idly by while our rights and values are trampled upon by those who seek to undermine them.

The recent attack on the Appeal to Heaven Flag, which was flown outside the Virginia home of Supreme Court Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., is a clear indication that our enemies recognize the power and significance of this symbol. However, their attempts to discredit and suppress it will only strengthen our resolve to continue flying it proudly.

The credibility of the democratic process has recently been called into question as allegations of election rigging and voter suppression have become increasingly common. This has left many feeling disillusioned and powerless, as their voices seemingly go unheard and their votes rendered meaningless.

The feeling of hopelessness is further exacerbated by the obvious control exerted by malevolent forces over our society. These forces, which can be described as demonic in nature, are characterized by their hatred for traditional values and their relentless pursuit of power and control.

In such a climate, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and powerless. However, the Appeal to Heaven Flag serves as a powerful symbol of hope and resistance.

The concept of appealing to heaven is deeply rooted in the Christian faith and has been a guiding principle for countless believers throughout history. The Appeal to Heaven Flag embodies this principle. By flying the Appeal to Heaven Flag, we acknowledge that our struggle is not merely a political one, but a spiritual one as well. We recognize that the forces we are up against are not merely human, but demonic in nature. This is not to say that we should abandon our efforts to effect change in the political realm. Rather, it is a call to recognize the spiritual dimension of our struggle and to seek divine guidance and protection in our endeavors.

In times of darkness and despair, it is faith that can provide the strength and resilience needed to persevere. The Appeal to Heaven Flag serves as a powerful symbol of this faith, reminding us that we are not alone in our struggle and that our ultimate salvation lies in the hands of God.

By embracing the Appeal to Heaven Flag, we acknowledge the spiritual dimension of our struggle and commit ourselves to seeking divine guidance and protection in our endeavors. We recognize that our ultimate victory will not be achieved through our own strength alone, but through the power of faith and the grace of God.

The Appeal to Heaven Flag has a rich history that is intertwined with the founding principles of the United States and the values of Christian Nationalism. As a Christian Nationalist, I will continue to fly this flag as a symbol of my commitment to the ideals of faith, freedom, and self-governance. I encourage all those who share these values to join me in embracing the Appeal to Heaven Flag as a powerful symbol of our ongoing struggle for a better future.

There is tremendous power in appealing to heaven.

To God Be The Glory!
