Mantle of our Forefathers

The time will soon come wherein the people living within the borders of the member States and territories of the Confederacy, will find their options limited, and will find themselves faced with unavoidable choices.  Either they shall stand with those who rule over them, or else those who are prepared to pay whatever price, and rule over themselves!  They shall become an independent world-class national power, or else bow to the tyrannical rule of others!  If the people of the Confederate States continue as servants of their Yankee occupiers, they are destined to plunge ever deeper into a world of socialism and tyranny.

Their option as a people, return to the course as laid down by their Confederate forefathers, thereby avoiding the road of ultimate destruction, as laid down by Abraham Lincoln, when he altered the ‘Grand Ole Republic’ into an Empire.  Our forefathers where overwhelmed by numbers and firepower, thus found it necessary to lay down their armed.  The mantle of freedom, independence as well as the defense of our unalienable rights, was thereby laid at the feet of a new generation, it is for us to now pick up the mantle, and continue the struggle until victory.

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace.  We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."  --Samuel Adams

On occasion, a situation arises of extremely critical importance, far and above other matters and this is such a time. It has been said of me, "you always quote the scriptures."  The quotation is true, and allows me to do so again; but not from the pulpit of a chaplain or a prophet, but from a humble Southerner, standing in the midst of changing history and feeling the strong South winds slowly build into a full gale.  My firm conviction is that the Southern people are a called people.  Across the centuries of time the Divine Providence of Almighty God beckons.  On 9 April, 1865, General Robert E. Lee surrendered his armies and on that day he laid down the mantle.

The prophet Elijah once faced a situation like this, "... when the Lord would take up Elijah into heaven by a whirlwind..." [II Kings 2:1.]   Elijah had wrapped his mantle together and smote the Jordan River, and they were divided, so that he, Elisha, and 50 sons of the prophets went over on dry ground.  Once on the other side, Elijah knew he would be taken away and asked of Elisha "...what shall I do for thee, before I shall be taken away from thee..."   Elisha replied "...I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me..." …verse 9. Elijah stated, "Thou has asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken away from thee, it shall be so unto you; but if not, it shall not be so." … verse 10.

Elisha was attentive, as we should be in our time. "And it came to pass, as they still went on and talked that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. And Elisha saw it, and he cried, ‘My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof.’  And he saw him no more, and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces.  He took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him, and smote the waters, and said, where is the Lord God of Elijah?  And when he also had smitten the waters, they parted hither and thither: and Elisha went over." [II Kings 2:11-13.]

If it is true, and I believe it is that in the Antebellum South our people had built the noble, graceful, honorable, and the most Christian society ever to exist in 2000 years.  Stories of these people and the times have become an awe-inspiring measurement by which nations are judged. It is if the realms of heaven had showered upon the Southland her grace, charm, and majesty.  It was a land of Christian Gentlemen and their Ladies Fair. The principles upon which our forefathers built a society and a nation and for which they fought, suffered, bled, and died in agony are the principles of the ages, of the Almighty God and the Holy Scriptures.

It has now been passed to us that we should, as it were, return to Appomattox Courthouse, the very place of surrender where the mantle was dropped.  There, upon that holy ground, we ought to humble ourselves, return to those foundations of splendor and pick up the mantle of our forefathers.  What is this station to which the Southern People are called?  That "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." [II Chronicles 7:14.].

Are those principles, the very cause of the South, found in the politically correct, pop culture of Yankee society, lacking even the rudiments of morality or standards of behavior?  Do we find them where the Almighty God is mocked and the Holy Scripture and prayer are forbidden subject matter for the instruction of our children?  Reside they in a society where 40 millions-plus innocent unborn children have been slaughtered and cast aside like so much rubbish, merely for convenience?  Shall the music, culture, entertainment, heathen manner of dress, and mindset of such a people and society be the example upon which we shall build?

Shall 'those people' [as General Robert E. Lee liked to call them] offer you more than heaven's grace?  Shall our occupation forces rebuild a free and independent Southland?  Maybe they will aide us in returning to the charm, nobility, and splendor of the society our forefathers built? I think not.  What shall you give up that is so valuable that you would reject what the Almighty God, in Christ Jesus, will offer?  Have we as a people, become so at ease in pagan Babylon that we would not, as the scripture phrases it, "girt up our loins and depart?"  Perhaps some among our numbers are like unto Lot’s wife, who looked back upon Sodom in longing, and perished.

The mantle of our forefathers waits! Shall we not walk over and pick it up? Shall we not bring into this modern world the treasure of a society, which for all these years since the surrender has been but a storybook land? The Lord God calls to the Southern People, shall we not answer?  Each and every one of us can not personally return to Appomattox Courthouse, but we can do so spiritually and mentally.  We can lie at the altar of God the ways of life, attitudes, and mindset of our pagan occupation forces which we have learned.  We can seek His forgiveness, accept His calling, and pick up the mantle. Our Lord Jesus Christ, through the Holy Spirit, has laid the course of untold multitudes, even of future history, before us.  Shall we not serve as a light and an example before them as their leaders and not their followers?

The liberation of the now-occupied Confederacy; the rise of our history, heritage, and culture to prominence; and our rejoining the free and independent nations of the earth will shake the heathen world the one world government pagans.  Shall such a nation restored not be a light in the darkness?  I believe we all share the same answer.  Perhaps the Lord God has permitted in the past our land to be laid waste and we ourselves prostrate before our enemies that we might raise again all the greater, by His power, and in accordance with His plan: a witness before the world.  A day, an hour and a moment awaits the Southern People.  I believe each and everyone, who would desire the vindication of our just and honorable cause, will consider what has been said here.

God save the Confederacy


“Our country demands all our strength, all our energies!  To resist the powerful combination now forming against us will require every man at his place.  If victorious, we will have everything to hope for in the future!  If defeated, nothing will be left for us to live for!”  {General Robert E. Lee}.  The passing of time has meant generations, since General Lee made that statement, still it remains, our nation, though under occupation, is the Confederate States of America, and our country as much now as then, demands all of our strength and energy.
