An Appeal To Heaven

It Happened To Us - An Appeal To Heaven

The Nick and Donna Nickerson Family




An Appeal To Heaven
The year was 1775. Tensions between England and the American Colonies over taxation without representation, denial of the right to trial by jury, the prohibition of colonists to move west, and the gradual eradication of religious liberty, had boiled over into an armed conflict. George Washington, recognizing the need of an American navy to successfully resist British domination of the colonies, personally financed, commissioned, and sent out the first American naval vessels with "An Appeal to Heaven" flags flying at mast. The "An Appeal To Heaven" flag symbolizes the truths stated in our Declaration of Independence, We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights… The phrase is from John Locke's Second Treatise of Government, ...where the body of the people, or any single man, is deprived of their right, or is under the exercise of a power without right, and have no appeal on earth, then they have a liberty to appeal to Heaven, whenever they judge the cause of sufficient moment. It signifies the belief mankind's rights and freedoms come from God, no government has the right to infringe upon these rights, and when a government sets upon a course to take these rights, the people have the right to appeal to the King of all kings as their defender in a just and right resistance to tyranny. Having done all we know to stand true, we appeal to Heaven believing and knowing God is and will be the Final Judge in all matters.




For Such A Time As This
The Constitution of the United States
We the people of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. Preamble

This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; … shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding. Article 6

No person shall…be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law…In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved… No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. Fifth, Seventh, Fourteenth Amendments

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Declaration of Independence




The Battle Rages On
Our homeland has been invaded. Our family has been fighting in faith and prayer against tyranny, persecution, and injustice for years. What if it happened to you? Could threats of destroying your career, seizing your entire financial portfolio, and harming your family cause you to forsake your faith, moral conscience and patriotic duty? Ask history how it has worked out in the past. It happened to us and it may soon happen to you. Will you give up your faith or freedom when it does? The giants in the land are big, but God, family, and country are bigger. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

…where the body of the people, or any single man, is deprived of their right, or is under the exercise of a power without right, and have no appeal on earth, then they have a liberty to appeal to Heaven, whenever they judge the cause of sufficient moment. John Locke

It is time to raise our Appeal to Heaven. Freedom, liberty and justice for all are worth preserving and protecting. Pray and get involved in helping save our homeland. You can make a difference. Never doubt the power of prayer and never underestimate the value of one. No matter what you are going through, God is still on His Throne and nothing is impossible with God.

Read more about our family and how you can join the battle.




We, the Nickerson Family, appeal to heaven to protect and preserve our family, home, country, and lives. May God grant us His grace, courage, strength, guidance, direction, and peace to stand and fight for liberty and justice for all.
