I will not back down on supporting America as long as I have breath and see Abrahams 10 righteous still holding theMayflower Compact, The Articles of Conferderation of 1646, and The Constitution of The USA ( which GOD AUTHORED )in the Lord's face.  So many believers have written off ALL PEOPLE ALIVE in this country, written off ALL BELIEVERS who pray and remind God of The Covenants HE established with our Founding Fathers.  Sweep it all aside for judgement, NO SIR.  If all else here see only doom and judgement and destruction for us, I DON'T, and I won't relent.

(4) Deborah:  I am a direct descendant of a signer of the Mayflower Compact too.  I am a direct descendant of William Bradford, the Governor of Plymouth and the Founder of the 1st Thanksgiving.  So that’s 4 of us who post regularly on Five Doves who are descendants of the Mayflower Compact. 
Anyone else?

In any case, with regard to Dewey's comments: see the "Mayflower Society" link below.  There are FAR more than 10 righteous descendants of the Mayflower Compact alive in America today. 

It is interesting, I have wondered for years why the only patch of the Pacific Ring of Fire, that isn't constantly rocking is N. America.  I have assumed this must be a blessing of God.  There doesn't seem to be any other scientific reason for it.  Now Dewey points out it might well be due to the Mayflower Compact.  I live in So. CA in Orange County near Chuck Smith's church.  I "KNOW" there are more than 10 Righteous in this vicinity!  There are thousands!  Praise God.  But I am standing in the GAP, asking God to spare us disaster and to stop the nuclear meltdown somehow.  It is snowing today in Japan.  Snow is very cold rain.  Just what they need.
William Bradford (March 19, 1590 – May 9, 1657) was an English leader of the settlers of the Plymouth Colony in Massachusetts, and was elected thirty times to be the Governor after John Carver died. His journal (1620–1647) was published as Of Plymouth Plantation. Bradford is credited as the first civil authority to designate what popular American culture now views as Thanksgiving in the United States.[2]
