One Nation, One God by Pastor Melissa Scott

August 25th, 2010

Okay. Let me, let me kind of give some background because the background today is very important. Smyrna, unlike Ephesus, if you want to make a comparison of the two places picture Ephesus being like New York City, all right. Smyrna would be the equivalent of Washington, D.C. and I say that because it sat the council, the largest Roman body to govern although it wasn’t under direct Roman rule.

Pastor Melissa Scott tells us that they were free from taxes; they still were under their empire. Now there’s a long history that goes back, I don’t want to bore you with it except to say that if you talk to and read all the documentation regarding Izmir, Izmirs, Smyrna you’ll find people say there was always, it always existed. It’s been there forever and ever. We have historical records of 1,000 B.C., 1,000 years before Christ. It was settled by the Ionians, it became one of the 12 in the Ionian league and of course everybody claims to have founded it but the three people that have a claim to fame of saying that they founded it, whatever that means, that three people could found the same place. The Pelops, Theseus and of course no invasion would be complete without Alexander the Great.

So you have this triplet of things happening. Single handedly Alexander the Great, and I have to say I’ve been doing an awful lot of reading about Alexander the Great, not only can you find traces of things that happened in modern history go backwards and I say that Alexander’s pursuit to one, under one nation. Here we have our bills say under, under one nation, under one God, whatever the bill says I don’t know what it says anymore, they’re about to change it I think but you never know in this country anymore. But I think Alexander’s vision was one nation under Alexander that was his vision.
