The Covenant: One Nation Under God
The Covenant: One Nation Under God
America's Sacred and Immutable Connection to Ancient Israel
After receiving a glowing Glenn Beck endorsement in 2012, this book spent time at #1 on Amazon overall. The book continues to reset the foundation of American History studies.
God is the author of the American story—her past and her future sustainability have and always will be predicated upon our devotion to Him. Timothy Ballard's research probes deeply into our nation's rich history and reveals with amazing clarity her place in sacred biblical prophecy.
- Why did Christopher Columbus assert that he was "guided by an angel" at his 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 stand 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 this 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, One Nation Under God: 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). 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 bloodline 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.
"I've been looking for a way to articulate this message for years. Ballard finally did it! Everybody needs to read this book, it is the key to restoring America."
—Glenn Beck, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author and syndicated radio talk host
"Ballard's case is laid out in detail, tightly argued, and inspiring to read."
—Hugh Hewitt, best-selling author, and nationally syndicated radio talk show host
"The concept of what a covenant truly is and means is unfamiliar to most today, for it far surpasses any legal understandings or obligations with which our current culture is acquainted. God established a covenant with Abraham and his posterity, the Bible recounts not only the duties but also the remarkable benefits produced by that mutual accord. Tim Ballard documents the "extension" of that covenant re-invoked during the establishment of this nation: a covenant made between God and America's early colonists and Founders. The Covenant not only shows the unprecedented blessings America has received as a result of obedience to God but also what every citizen today can do to honor our national covenant with God and thus ensure His continued blessings."
