The gathering began with a prayer and an anthem. Then Garrison began one of the most controversial performances of his career. “Today, we are called to celebrate the seventy-eighth anniversary of American independence. In what spirit? He asked, “For what purpose?” What`s the point? The declaration of independence stated that “all men are created in the same way… It is not a declaration of equality between property, physical strength or beauty, intellectual or moral development, industrial or inventive forces, but equal rights – not of one race, but of all races. Since the early 1830s, antisklavalist supporters have embraced the message of black abolitionists by denouncing the sin of slavery and racial prejudice. With words familiar to his audience, Garrison repeated decades-long warnings that there was no freedom in the South; Who there, he explained, “could he profess his faith in the inalienable rights of man, regardless of the complex caste?” The Southern Church, a frequent target of abolitionists, was outside Of Christendom and was nothing more than a “cage of unclean birds and the synagogue of Satan.” Garrison ventured into new territory by warning that slavery had intensified since the beginning of his anti-slavery career – not weakened. Slavery and its favorites have endangered freedom everywhere and its supporters, he warned, intended to strengthen their grip on the Caribbean, expand into Central and South America and even expand the cursed institution into the Pacific. Freedom is gone. What`s there to celebrate on the Fourth of July? He asked.

His goal for us in these situations is that we should rest in Him instead of finding other ways to run from Him to something else (Isaiah 30:15-16). Isaiah 28:18 (YLT) Your covenant is fallen from death, and your decree with The Sheol is not written: An overflowing plague, when it passes, you have come to him to find a place of pedableness. God`s goal: we must break our covenants with death (Isaiah 28:18) 25. Face — the “surface” of the ground: “clear,” or plain, shaking.

Verses 16-22 Here is a promise from Christ, the only foundation of hope to escape the anger that comes. This reason was laid in Zion, in the eternal guidance of God. This foundation is a stone, solid and able to support his church. It is a tempted stone, a chosen stone, approved by God, and never failed that tries it. A corner stone that connects the entire building and carries all the weight; precious in the eyes of the Lord and of every believer; a safe base on which to build.
