When the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776 its
founders were declaring independence from an earthly power
while making a clear declaration of dependence upon Almighty
God. The closing words of this historic document declares

pale under His power. Our allegiance is to the King of Kings and

the Lord of Lords.
