Is the United States of America mentioned in scripture? If so where do we find this mention? If these two questions pose a curiosity to you, I recommend the following video. Do I personally believe every word of this testimonial video? To that question, I have no response, but I can say that this is a very interesting take on both the United States and on certain clippings of scripture, scripture most likely already familiar to you but applied by a teacher or preacher perhaps in a different way than presented in this video.
Yes, sadly, or perhaps rightly, this is the cluttered competitive world of scriptural equivocation controlled by that subtle shading that we must endure for some unfathomable reason (for we are taught that God is not the author of confusion) that seems harsh to this innate sense of yearning for absolute truth by men. In the struggle, in our search for relics, signs and perfect language, this “cluttered competitive world” appears to be the best we can hope for at this point in time. Perhaps this is intended to keep men humble, so that no man can brag of his scholarship and wisdom. Not sure how well that has worked out.
But in this light, while comprehending the penalties of rebellion against the WORD as described in The Gospel of John, I choose to embrace the uncertainty, rejoice at the possibilities, and simply drop the pretense of knowing while remaining true to those most important aspects of my conscience-appointed relationship to the One God, my father, His Son the Nazarene, born of Mariam, crucified, dead, and buried, rose again on the third day, and the Holy Spirit of Whom I am endowed with that peculiar energy which allows me to speak to, speak of, and seek instructions from God. Or maybe not.
If you do begin to watch the video, I promise you shall hear something very specific about the significance of not only where the buffalo roam, but you will also learn about why the buffalo is perhaps more significant to the iconology of the American continent than even the bald eagle…
