George Duffield, pastor of the Pine Street Presbyterian Church in Philladelphia, was chaplain of the Continental Congress and the Pennsylvania militia, and a signer of the Declaration of Independance. He had a price on his head -- King George of of England offered fifty pounds sterling for his capture or death. Duffield saw England as being like Egypt in Moses' time, and Americans were likened to the Israelites.
King George didn't like him. Duffield likened King George to Pharoh, and he was famous for his anti-British preachings far and wide. I was reading a little history at lunch and ran across a remarkable prophesy this man made, which it looks to me has come to pass. On My 17, 1776, Duffield said:
Wilst sun and moon endure, america shall remain a city of refuge for the whole earth, until she herself shall play the tyrant, forget her destiny, disgrace her freedom, and provoke her God.
It certainly seems prescient to me. America was indeed once "a city of refuge for the whole earth," but sadly it has become a tyrant who has forgotten its destiny and disgraced its freedom.
Sadly, I see no way back that mere mortals can achieve. The god "mammon" has corrupted this once great nation, and that's a god no man can withstand without help.
