"Brethren, we came to this country to practice our religious liberties, and if we don't get involved, we're going to lose them." --John Peter Muhlenberg, 1777

The Black Robe Regiment.....

arose from the pulpits across the colonies during the Revolutionary War. The movement had its beginnings with Reverend Peter Muhlenberg in 1776 concluding his Sunday sermon by declaring, "In the language of the Holy Writ, there was a time for all things, a time to preach and a time to pray, but those times have passed away. There is a time to fight, and that time is now coming!" Muhlenberg then removed his black robe revealing a full military uniform. Marching to the rear of his church he declared, "Who among you is with me?" On that day 300 men from his congregation stood up and joined Muhlenberg in the fight for liberty.

It is in that spirit that we have created this site. The time has come again that our church leaders must stand up and defend the values, freedoms, and liberties that our founding fathers fought and died for.

This forum, and our associated website resource at www.blackrobereg.org, is a place where concerned Christians can network and discuss strategies for engaging the Body of Christ to take action. Our silence over the past decades has equaled consent. We must now stand up and come together and take action. America is engaged in a spiritual battle that has manifested itself in the political realm. We need revival and a return to the Godly foundations upon which our forefathers built our Republic, and start the process of inviting God back into our governmental, judicial, and educational systems. This must begin on the cellular level--first within our own heart, then within our family, within our Church, and finally to all aspects of our worldly lives.

Please use this forum to share with your peers here on ways to educate, motivate, and activate the Christian community. Use the resources of www.blackrobereg.org to educate yourself as to the historical position and duty that the Church must take in these perilous times. This site will only be relevant and useful with your support. If you have ideas or resources please share them with the forum so others might use them to reach out to their brothers and sisters. Please be sure to join your state group and network with others in your local area.

Please invite others to join with us here and grow our network. You can invite others using the +Invite more link under your name in the top left corner, or anywhere you see the word Invite on all of our groups. You may also click on the following link to make it easier for you: +Invite your friends now, CLICK HERE

We must restore the rightful place of God in our worldly existence and acknowledge that our founding fathers fully intended that our Republic be a moral and righteous nation founded in Biblical precepts and adherence first to God's will.

God Bless!

American Minute

American Minute for January 31st

When British troops descended on Boston, the Continental Congress' first official act was to request Rev. Jacob Duche', pastor of Philadelphia's Christ Church, to open in prayer: "Tuesday, September 6, 1774. Resolved, That the Rev. Mr. Duche' be desired to open the Congress tomorrow morning with prayers, at the Carpenter's Hall, at 9 o'clock." Born JANUARY 31, 1738, Rev. Jacob Duche' was a prominent leader in Pennsylvania, as his grandfather, Anthony Duche', had sailed to America with William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania. His father, Jacob Duche', Sr., helped Ben Franklin in 1748 raise a volunteer militia of armed private citizens to defend the city during the French and Indian War. On September 7, 1774, Rev. Jacob Duche', Jr., arrived at Carpenter's Hall in Philadelphia and read the 35th Psalm, which was the designated Anglican reading for that day: "Plead my cause, Oh, Lord, with them that strive with me, fight against them that fight against me. Take hold of buckler and shield, and rise up for my help. Draw also the spear and the battle-axe to meet those who pursue me; Say to my soul, 'I am your salvation.' Let those be ashamed and dishonored who seek my life; Let those be turned back and humiliated who devise evil against me." Rev. Duche' then offered an extemporaneous prayer. John Adams wrote to his wife, Abigail: "Mr. Duche' appeared with his clerk and in his pontificals, and read several prayers in the established form, and read the collect for the 7th day of September, which was the 35th Psalm. You must remember, this was the next morning after we heard the horrible rumor of the cannonade of Boston. I never saw a greater effect upon an audience. It seem as if heaven had ordained that Psalm to be read on that morning. After this, Mr. Duche', unexpectedly to everybody, struck out into an extemporary prayer, which filled the bosom of every man present. I must confess, I never heard a better prayer, or one so well pronounced...with such fervor, such ardor, such earnestness and pathos, and in language so elegant and sublime, for America, for the Congress, for the province of Massachusetts Bay, and especially the town of Boston. It has had an excellent effect upon everybody here." Congress voted: "Wednesday, September 7, 1774... That the thanks of Congress be given to Mr. Duche'...for performing divine Service, and for the excellent prayer, which he composed and delivered on the occasion." The next year, on July 7, 1775, Rev. Duch addressed the soldiers of First Battalion of the City of Philadelphia. Dedicating his sermon to General Washington, he published it with the title "The Duty of Standing Fast in Our Spiritual and Temporal Liberties": "If spiritual liberty calls...to a glorious hereafter, civil liberty must at least be allowed to secure...our well-being here... Civil liberty is as much the gift of God in Christ Jesus as the former, and consequently, that we are bound to stand fast in our civil as well as our spiritual freedom... 'Standing fast' in that liberty, wherewith Christ, as the great providential Governor of the world, hath made us free." On July 4, 1776, after Congress passed the Declaration of Independence, Rev. Mr. Duche' walked across the square to his church and convened a special meeting of his Vestry. He then took the large Anglican Book of Common Prayer from the pulpit and crossed out prayers for "the King of England," replacing them with "the United States of America." This greatly affected the country, as his was the first church to stop praying for the King. On July 8, 1776, John Hancock, President of the Continental Congress, wrote to Rev. Mr. Jacob Duche': "Sir, It is with the greatest pleasure I inform you that the Congress have been indeed, from a consideration of your piety, as well as your uniform and zealous attachment to the rights of America, to appoint you their Chaplain. It is their request, which I am commanded to signify to you, that you will attend on them, every morning at nine o'clock." Lorenzo Sabine's History of the Loyalists (1864), recorded Rev. Mr. Jacob Duche' first prayer after the Declaration of Independence was approved: "O Lord our Heavenly Father, High and Mighty, King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, who dost from thy throne behold all the dwellers on earth, and reignest with power supreme and uncontrolled over all kingdoms, empires, and governments, look down with mercy, we beseech Thee, on these our American States, who have fled to Thee, from the rod of the oppressor...desiring to be henceforth dependent only on Thee." On September 26, 1777, British General Howe invaded Philadelphia and imprisoned Rev. Duche', undoubtedly pressuring him. Ten days after his release, being discouraged after the Continental Army's heavy losses at the Battles of Brandywine and Germantown, Rev. Jacob Duche' disappointed the country. He penned a letter to General Washington urging surrender, then sailed for England. Later, regretting his decision after the war, Rev. Jacob Duche' returned to Philadelphia, where he died in 1798. Though disparaged for leaving, Rev. Jacob Duche' is best remembered for his stirring address to the soldiers of Philadelphia in the critical early years of the Revolution, July 7, 1775: "Considering myself under the twofold character of a minister of Jesus Christ, and a fellow-citizen...involved in the same public calamity with yourselves... I have made choice of a passage of Scripture...addressing myself to you as freemen, both in the spiritual and temporal sense... suggesting to you...under the blessing of Heaven, to... 'Stand fast, therefore, in the liberty, wherewith Christ hath made us free' (Galatians, chapter 5)..." Rev. Jacob Duche' concluded: "'Stand Fast' by an undaunted courage...a courage that will prove you to be good Christians, as well as soldiers, a firm invincible fortitude of soul, founded upon religion, and the glorious hope of a better world... Courage, that will enable you not only to withstand an armed phalanx, to pierce a squadron, or force an entrenchment...but will support you...against the principalities and powers of darkness...pain and sickness, and...all the horrors of a death-bed scene... Courage...will never degenerate into savage cruelty and barbarity... Be prepared...for the worst. Suffer not your spirits to evaporate... Though the worst should come - though we should be deprived of all the conveniences and elegancies of life...nevertheless, 'Stand Fast' as the guardians of liberty... NOW, THEREFORE, BE STRONG, O ZERUBBABEL, AND BE STRONG, O JOSHUA...FOR I AM WITH YOU, SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS...LOOK YE UNTO ME, AND BE SAVED, ALL YE ENDS OF THE EARTH!"
