8 Principles that made our Nation Great!

by Dr. Ken Matto


Some years ago I was asked to speak at a patriotic banquet in Philadelphia and I wanted to offer to the attending 200, eight principles which made our nation great. I thought I would now offer them to the world. Each of these principles has a biblical precedent which will be included. The United Sates is the envy of the entire world, so why did God make this nation so great? Because it was founded upon the Christian Faith. This is why I do not endorse the title "Judeo-Christian" because Judaism had no part in the founding of America. The Mayflower Compact states:


'Haveing undertaken, for ye glorie of God, and advancemente of ye Christian faith,..." - written in 1620 English.


God has blessed America for the sake of Christianity. Let us now attend to the 8 principles:



(Exo 34:11-14 KJV) Observe thou that which I command thee this day: behold, I drive out before thee the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite. {12} Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest it be for a snare in the midst of thee: {13} But ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves: {14} For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:


When God was making His covenant with Israel, He included the fact that they were to drive the enemy out of the land because God knew they would pollute the Theocracy of Israel. The United States must remain a sovereign nation to have a secure future. All foreign influences which seek to undermine the sovereignty of America must be expelled beyond the borders. I am not suggesting we refuse contact with other governments but our negotiations must be with the policy of "America First."



(Zec 8:16 KJV) These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbour; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates:


A government must inform their citizens of its intentions and what they are doing. There must be openness in all branches of government. Those in government must also have the good of the country before them continually. Our present government is under the authority of the Trilateral Commission, The Council on Foreign Relations, The Yale Fraternity of the Skull and Bones, et al. These groups are the death knell to the sovereignty of this nation. Elected officials serve these masters who are in charge of these groups. The people of this nation are secondary to these satanic organizations. A question, Why is Gorbachev in San Francisco telling the Defense Department which military bases to close? I bet you didn't know that!



(Exo 18:15-21 KJV) And Moses said unto his father in law, Because the people come unto me to inquire of God: {16} When they have a matter, they come unto me; and I judge between one and another, and I do make them know the statutes of God, and his laws. {17} And Moses' father in law said unto him, The thing that thou doest is not good. {18} Thou wilt surely wear away, both thou, and this people that is with thee: for this thing is too heavy for thee; thou art not able to perform it thyself alone. {19} Hearken now unto my voice, I will give thee counsel, and God shall be with thee: Be thou for the people to God-ward, that thou mayest bring the causes unto God: {20} And thou shalt teach them ordinances and laws, and shalt show them the way wherein they must walk, and the work that they must do. {21} Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens:


A strong nation can only survive if government comes from the people. Elected officials who prostitute themselves to special interest groups must be exposed and voted out. Elected officials must be made to know that they are servants of the people, not that the people are to be serving them.


Please note: The problem is not term limits, the problem is stupid voters.



(2 Chr 19:5-7 KJV) And he set judges in the land throughout all the fenced cities of Judah, city by city, {6} And said to the judges, Take heed what ye do: for ye judge not for man, but for the LORD, who is with you in the judgment. {7} Wherefore now let the fear of the LORD be upon you; take heed and do it: for there is no iniquity with the LORD our God, nor respect of persons, nor taking of gifts.


(Isa 10:1-2 KJV) Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed; {2} To turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless!


Judges must carry out the law and not make up their own interpretations for the sake of special interest groups or their own personal bias. Sentences must fit the crime. White collar criminals are treated too lightly because of influence peddling.



(Num 1:1-3 KJV) And the LORD spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the tabernacle of the congregation, on the first day of the second month, in the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying, {2} Take ye the sum of all the congregation of the children of Israel, after their families, by the house of their fathers, with the number of their names, every male by their polls; {3} From twenty years old and upward, all that are able to go forth to war in Israel: thou and Aaron shall number them by their armies.


For the continuation of freedom a strong national defense is needed. There must be a formidable deterrent to every would be world dictator who has his eyes on America. I can guarantee that those who have their eyes on America are building a huge offense.



(Neh 2:2-3 KJV) Wherefore the king said unto me, Why is thy countenance sad, seeing thou art not sick? this is nothing else but sorrow of heart. Then I was very sore afraid, {3} And said unto the king, Let the king live for ever: why should not my countenance be sad, when the city, the place of my fathers' sepulchres, lieth waste, and the gates thereof are consumed with fire?


The people must not let their guard down even in times of peace. The people must care about elections, about foreign policy, about subversive groups. The people must know what their leaders are up to, and demand accountability.



(Mat 5:13-16 KJV) Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. {14} Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. {15} Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. {16} Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.


(Phil 2:15 KJV) That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;


The special interest groups say that it is permissible for a Christian to be elected to office but they shouldn't push their values. Are the sodomites pushing their values? Are the liberals pushing their values? Is the ACLU pushing their values? Every God hating and Christian hating group is pushing their values. It was great to see the Christian community come out against the blasphemous movie "Last Temptation of Christ." It was a box office flop. Did you know there is a play in New York about Christ having sex with all his apostles? This is the kind of people that false preachers like Tony Campolo and his wife Peggy endorse. Have you scheduled this antichrist at your church or conference center? God's people can no longer hide but must come out of the closets on full offensive. The Bible built this nation and it can preserve it until the last day.



(Micah 2:1-2 KJV) Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when the morning is light, they practice it, because it is in the power of their hand. {2} And they covet fields, and take them by violence; and houses, and take them away: so they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his heritage.


Congress must once again take back its constitutional authority to preside over the money system in this country. At present, the Federal Reserve, which is a privately owned organization creates money out of thin air, controls inflation by requiring to increase or decrease bank reserves, loans the phony money that it creates, and in return they get real interest, thus putting the United States in the hands of the super rich elitists who have total power to create another depression like they did in 1929. God cannot bless a country who allows a corrupt money system to exist. The Fed is run by two staunch New World Order sycophants, Alan Greenspan and Alice Rivlin.

Although this may not be the most exhaustive evaluation but it serves to remind us that when the principles for greatness are violated, the nation is weakened considerably. On this July 4, pray for our country, that God would confound the plans of those who would destroy this republic. To those who are reading this from foreign countries, if your country has a central bank, then you are under the same satanic money system as we have here in the United States.


"The choice before us is plain, Christ or chaos, conviction or compromise, discipline or disintegration. I am rather tired of hearing about our rights and privileges as American Citizens. The time is come, it now is, when we ought to hear about the duties and responsibilities of our citizenship. America's future depends upon her accepting and demonstrating God's Government."
