On this day, remembering Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War with a newly modified version of the original Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address written six score and fourteen years ago.
The Civil War was the bloodiest conflict in the history of America, fought over the moral, economic and political control of the slavery system, territorial expansion, and states’ rights. Southern states wanted to assert their authority over the federal government in order to overturn laws they didn’t support.
The election of Abraham Lincoln, from the newly formed Republican Party, without a single Southern electoral vote, was a clear signal to the Southern states that they had lost all influence. It was then followed by secession and war.

Four score and seven years ago THE CREATOR AND RULER OF THE UNIVERSE [ Jeremiah 18:7-10 ] USED our fathers to bring forth on this continent, a new nation [ Manasseh, ] conceived IN THEIR ATTEMPT to find Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are EQUALLY CREATED WITH A GOD-GIVEN FREEWILL. [ Deuteronomy 5:15 ]
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a TEMPORARY resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and “dead,” who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. [ Hebrews 10:29 ] The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from OUR SOURCE AND ETERNAL KING we take increased devotion to that cause for which THESE HONORED SOULS WHO HAVE PASSED TO THE “OTHER SIDE” gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, DESTINED TO perish from the earth [ Daniel 2 ] SHALL BE REPLACED WITH THE TRUE ETERNAL/UNIVERSAL KINGDOM DETERMINED BEFORE, DESIGNED AND PREPARED FROM, THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD. [ Matthew 25:34; Hebrews 4:3 ]

May Manasseh [ United States of America ] and all the other Israelite Nations become fully conscious of the unfolding plan and process to bring all nations into alignment with the government of the Eternal Kingdom. The Davidic [ Messianic Kingdom ] is the Kingdom of God on Earth, our True Cause, as promised to Abraham, and created before the universe became a manifested reality.
Have a blessed day.
