Troy Brewer: The Prophetic Message of America’s Birth

“I want to tell you, it’s really important to stand with your people. It’s one of the ways that we bring the Kingdom. I really do believe that,” Brewer says. “The Lord has placed me in a certain place at a certain time and I need to do my part to make sure that everything around me looks a little bit more like heaven than it looks like hell.”

One of the keys to understand about America’s founding is that Scripture has been weaved through some of the most monumental moments of our history.

Brewer notes that Leviticus 25:10 is inscribed on the Liberty Bell, which reads, “…proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all the inhabitants.”

“The reason it’s called the Liberty Bell is simply because of Leviticus 25:10,” Brewer says. “All of that [is] making a prophetic declaration and sending out a sound of Liberty.”

“It happened in a place called Philadelphia,” Brewer says. “You know about the church of Philadelphia, right? He says, ‘Behold, I set before you an open door that no man can shut.’”

This refers to Revelation 3:7-8 which says, “To the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: ‘He who is holy, He who is true, He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens, says these things: I know your works. Look! I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it. For you have a little strength, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name.”  

“The Declaration of Independence was the birth certificate of our great nation, but it was also a death warrant when they signed it,” Brewer says. “It was a solemn, holy moment that when they put their signatures on that piece of paper they knew, ‘man, my life will never ever ever be the same again.’”

As we remember the courage it took these brave men to sign the Declaration of Independence, let’s remember the symbolic message as well that God was with our nation at its conception, making it an open door for many to come and find freedom.
