Whatever Happened to the Dominion of Canada
“Dominion From Sea to Sea” used to be the motto of Canada. It was taken from this portion of Scripture in the book of Zechariah.
(Zec 9:9) Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.
10) And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and he shall speak peace unto the heathen: and his dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from the river even to the ends of the earth.
Whatever happened to that motto? Why isn’t Canada called the Dominion of Canada as it once was? A dominion cannot be a dominion without willing subjects. The reason that any dominion ceases is rebellion.
When a nation is formed it must be under some kind of authority or that nation is not a nation at all but a total anarchy. Romans chapter 13 states that God sets up authorities and that they are to be obeyed. When Canadian people refuse to recognize the authority of God then they also refuse God’s protection, because our protection is the responsibility of the authority under which we willingly place ourselves.
But if ye will not obey the voice of the LORD,
but rebel against the commandment of the LORD,
then shall the hand of the LORD be against you,
as it was against your fathers
1 Samuel 12:15
Oh, that Canada would again become a nation
whose God is The Lord Jesus Christ
