The Texas Declaration of Independence, 3-2-1836 & some food for thought…

The Texas Declaration of Independence was produced, literally, overnight, March 1st, 1836. It’s urgency was paramount, because while it was being prepared, the Alamo in San Antonio was under siege by Santa Anna’s army of Mexico. It was briefly reviewed, then adopted by the delegates of the convention the following day, March 2nd. The transcript contains statements on the function and responsibility of government, followed by a list of grievances. Yes, this is a declaration of Independence from Mexico, but as you read the document notice how closely it aligns to many of the fears, concerns and grievances many have of our current Government and leadership.

By stating this I am not advocating anything other than this…Unless the Lord builds the house, we labor in vain to build it and…there is a way which seems right unto man, but it’s end is the journey and way of death. 

What side are we on? This is a good question to ask ourselves and it reminded me of Joshua Chapter 5:13,14 Now it came about when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, a man was standing opposite him with his sword drawn in his hand, and Joshua went to him and said to him, “Are you for us or for our adversaries?” He said, “Neither; rather I indeed come now as captain of the host of the LORD.” And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and bowed down, and said to him, “What has my lord to say to his servant?”

What should we do?…

Hebrews 2:1-3-For this reason we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away from it. For if the word spoken through angels proved unalterable, and every transgression and disobedience received a just penaltyhow will we escape if we neglect so great a salvation?

2 Chronicles 7:14
