D-Day Message from Oath Keepers

D-Day Message from Oath Keepers

By Stewart Rhodes:

Today is the anniversary of D Day – June 6, 1944.   Let us take a moment of silence from our busy lives to remember and honor the fighting men – American, Canadian, and from the United Kingdom – who stormed the beaches at Normandy, scaled the cliffs, and parachuted in or arrived by perilous glider behind enemy lines to liberate Europe.

On that day the fate of the free world hung in the balance.   On this great day of honor, let us consider these prophetic words spoken by the Rev. Abraham Williams in an Election Sermon given in Boston Mass. 1762; (note the date just before the hated Stamp Act)  using the Bible text I Corinthians XII. 25: he states:

“Let us humbly adore and praise the Supreme Lord of the Universe, that he has so remarkably interposed, for the preservation of our civil constitution, and that he gives us so remarkably hopes of its continuance to the latest generations… notwithstanding the attempts of domestic traitors, arbitrary bigoted tyrants, and foreign unrighteousness enemies, in former and later times; He that sitteth on High, to whom victory belongs, has confounded the devices of the crafty and scattered those that delight in, and promoted by lusts of ambition and covetousness, injuriously began war. Whatever new enemies join the unrighteous cause, yet from the Justice of our cause, the deliverance and success already afforded us by the Lord of Hosts, the almighty Judge, that will do Right, we have Reason to hope and trust, he will still favor us, and bring to naught the Combinations of unreasonable men, and that the cause of truth and right shall finally prevail.”

My Uncle, Rex Ruth, sent me that sermon quote earlier today and he also stated the following:

“Would that such truth would be preached from the Pulpit of the American Branch of the Christian Church today and lead and guide the modern American people, Christian or not, not only to spiritual internal liberty through  faith in Christ, but also external liberty in law founded upon the Law of Nature and Natures God who is the God of the Bible!  Amen.” 

He also added:

“Whether it is in 1762 or 1944, the principles are the same because the nature of man never changes.  Therefore it takes the principles of the never changing God to keep men in check so His will is ultimately done.”

All I can add to that  is today is a good day to set aside our worries and troubles and reflect on how tiny and insignificant they are in comparison to what those men faced on the beaches of Normandy and in the French countryside on this day in 1944 and in the long, dangerous days thereafter.  Thinking of them will help us gain some perspective and will help quiet our minds and steel our resolve to do our part, now that it is our turn to stand up for what is right.  The above quoted Appeal to Heaven of our Founding Generation is truly timeless and still applies to today, June 6, 2018.

So long as we are each on this side of the grass, the outcome of our modern struggle for Liberty is not yet determined.   It is not for us to decide whether the battle will ultimately be won.  Like our forefathers, it is simply our duty to never, ever give up and to keep on going till our last breath, doing all we can with whatever talents God has given us, in spite of our flaws, and with as much honor and love of our brothers and sisters as we can muster.   Duty is ours, results are God’s.

Salute and honor to the heroes of D Day.  May we honor their sacrifice by our own commitment and re-commitment to giving our full measure in the fight to preserve our nation and the sacred cause of Liberty.

Amen.

It was the toughest mission of D-Day. Allied plans called for 225 Rangers, including Dog Company, to land on a tiny beach, scale the ten-story-high cliffs of Pointe du Hoc, France, under a torrent of enemy fire, and destroy the most dangerous gun battery threatening the American portion of the invasion. usdefensewatch

    As a citizen and proud veteran, I proudly stand at attention and offer a hand salute to all of my military brothers and sisters, those that lost their lives, those that are not accounted for and those that are serving today. My Oath remains valid and it will only expire when I do. God Bless our Independent, Sovereign, Constitutional Republic.

    I wish you had posted this yesterday! I would have read it at our Elders’ meeting just to see how many took issue with it. Thanks.

    Thanks Stewart for this reminder focusing on honoring those who have served our country ! It is a disgrace on how historical information such as this had been deliberately removed from our main stream media and has been removed in schools along with many other things we were raised to know and respect ! We can only hope and pray this will be turned around and changed in our life times. Take care, God Bless, Don Pagani / Franklin, N.C. 28734

    AS A PROUD VETERAN AND COMMANDER OF MY VFW POST,4392, I WISH TO THANK ALL THOSE WHO CAME BEFORE US AND SACRIFICED TO KEEP US FREE. I IN NO WAY WISH TO DENIGRATE THE SACRIFICES THAT THOSE BRAVE MILITARY HEROES MADE ON D-DAY, BUT LETS NOT FORGET ALL THOSE WHO SERVED IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC, WHO MADE MANY LANDINGS. MY FATHER WAS A MARINE WHO MADE A TOTAL OF 18 LANDINGS THERE. WE NEED TO REMEMBER ALL THOSE WHO HELPED WIN WWII AND ALL THE OTHER WARS WE HAVE PARTICIPATED IN.

    They served under oath to God and country. They shall never be forgotten and neither shall today’s men and women who serve.
