God is the author of the American story-her past and her future sustainability has and always will be predicated upon our devotion to Him. Timothy Ballard's ten years of research probes deeply into our nation's rich history and reveals with amazing clarity her sacred place in sacred biblical prophecy.
Why did Christopher Columbus assert that he was "guided by an angel" at the moments of greatest distress? What prompted the original colonists to embrace the notion that the land of America was "New Israel" to them? What power urged Washington and his rag-tag army to successfully go against the greatest military power in the known world? What brought about the terrible national crisis that left our nation grieving, humbled and repentant after the desolation of the Civil War?
What is the secret behind the nation's unsurpassed record of prosperity, protection and liberty? What are the responsibilities and consequences incumbent upon a people so blessed?
The answer to these, and many other questions relating to our country's real national treasure are found in the pages of THE COVENANT.
Ballard's book reveals a new interpretation of American history that has never been articulated this way before. THE COVENANT: America's Sacred and Immutable Connection to Ancient Israel is an extraordinary work bringing to light the profound connection between America and the Promises made to the ancient House of Israel.
To be clear, this book is not about America's tie to the modern State of Israel (the tribe of Judah gathering since 1948) but rather, the text harks back to 743 B.C. to the Northern Kingdom of ancient Israel and the Ten Tribes who were scattered into the "Northlands" of Western Europe, Great Britain and Scandinavia, who carried in their blood line the right to invoke "the Promises made to the Fathers."
Every freedom-loving patriot in modern times (in every nation of the world) has already been inspired by the blessings emanating from the "just and holy principles" upon which America was founded. Could it be that America was designed to be much more than just a political entity and that her founders understood and endeavored to teach the rising generations what it would take to preserve those blessings forever?
While as a nation we have breached the Covenant in many instances and suffered as a result, this book is written to leave all without excuse. We have within our grasp the freedom to choose to honor or to violate the terms of the Covenant and surely as a nation, we will live or die by the consequences of that choice.
