Happy CanaDa Day!
On New Year’s Eve 2008, I wrote to The Prime Minister with the vision I see for CanaDa, and I was pleased to receive this personal reply his 1st Day back on the job in the New Year of the Lord 2009.
On the occasion of CanaDa’s 144th Birthday, it is Time to share this vision I see as our National Destiny in the Future.
A MARI USQUE AD MARI was taken from the Psalms of David 72:8: ‘He shall have Dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth’ for we Canadians still struggling on The Plains of Abraham in The Dominion of CanaDa Today.
From St. John’s Newfoundland & St. John New Brunswick, to Quebec in the Spirit of John The Baptist, to Victoria, British Columbia, to Whitehorse in the Yukon and the True North, we have inherited a vast and rich land Blessed by God.
CanaDa is a very special place that has brought people here from every Nation on earth to build a new representative model of Democracy and Freedom for the world together on The Plains of Abraham.
The world is at war with itself while the Old World Order is in rapid decline as the Prophets said it would be at the End of the Age.
We have a place where diverse cultures, languages and Faiths can live in relative Peace and Harmony as the Family of Man and Children of God.
Dear Mr. Cormier:
Thank you for your warm holiday greetings.
This special time of year is an occasion for celebrating our blessings with family and friends and for looking ahead to the promise of the new year with hope and excitement.
My family and I would like to offer our best wishes to you and yours for a joyful holiday season, filled with health and happiness.

Dear Prime Minister,
I appreciate your Office acknowledging my Christmas message. As we enter
the time of the Lord 2009, I hope you will share in the Vision I just
posted on Facebook. Happy New Year.

I think Canadians from every Nation on Earth, including every Muslim I met
or worked with, embody most of the positive characteristics so many of you
have articulated here. I also think Canadians have a fate or destiny or
calling or whatever other similar word one could use. As I´ve stated in
other topics, the fact our National Unity struggle is rooted in the
Plains of Abraham, I see as a material representation of a Spiritual
reality that is not yet seen, realized and actualized.
Being the only Monarchy at the Top of the Americas in the New World, I see
as a material representation of the Spiritual reality of the
Kingdom of Christ the King, the example to the rest of the World as we enter the time of trial and tribulation.
The Canadian Coat of Arms A MARI USQUE AD MARE comes from a Psalm of David mentioned above & below. So far I have been alone believing this, and I can´t just snap my fingers and make it a reality. I view these material things we can see as Spiritual symbols and Signs of a special role God has in store for CanaDa.
The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the
LORD, and set me down in the middle of the valley which was full of bones,
And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many
in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.
And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered,
O Lord GOD, you know.
Again he said to me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O you dry
bones, hear the word of the LORD. Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones;
Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live: And I
will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you
with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live; and you shall know
that I am the LORD.
So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise,
and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone. And
when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin
covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
Then said he to me, Prophesy to the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to
the wind, Thus says the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and
breathe upon these slain, that they may live. So I prophesied as he
commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up
upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
Then he said to me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel:
behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost:
WE ARE CUT OFF FOR OUR PARTS.
Therefore prophesy and say to them, Thus says the Lord GOD; Behold, O my
people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves,
and bring you into the land of Israel.
And you shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my
people, and brought you up out of your graves, And shall put my spirit in
you, and you shall live, and I shall place you in your own land:
THEN shall you know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, says
The word of the LORD came again to me, saying, Moreover, you son of man,
take one stick, and write on it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel
his companions: then take another stick, and write on it, For Joseph,
the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions:
And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall be come one in
And when the children of your people shall speak to you, saying, Will you
not show us what you mean by these? Say to them, Thus says the Lord GOD;
Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim,
and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him,
even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one
in my hand. And the sticks whereon you write shall be in your hand before
And say to them, Thus says the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of
Israel from among the heathen, where they be gone, and will gather them on
every side, and bring them into their own land: And I will make them one
nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king
to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be
divided into two kingdoms any more at all: (CanaDa/Quebec)
Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with
their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will
save them out of all their dwelling places, wherein they have sinned, and
will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.
And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one
shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes,
and do them.
And they shall dwell in the land that I have given to Jacob my servant,
wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they,
and their children, and their children’s children for ever: and my servant
David shall be their prince for ever.
Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an
everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them,
and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. My tabernacle
also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be
And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my
sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.
Dem Bones, Dry Bones or Dem Dry Bones is a well-known traditional spiritual song, used to teach basic anatomy to children, although its description is not anatomically correct. The melody was written by African-American author and songwriter James Weldon Johnson (1871–1938). Two versions of this traditional song are used widely, the second an abridgment of the first. The lyrics are based on Ezekiel 37:1-14, where the prophet visits the Valley of Dry Bones and prophesies that they will become alive by God’s command. Wikipedia
Concerning the Old World Israel
Jesus said to them, Did you never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
Therefore say I to you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits of it.
This means don´t just talk the talk, but walk the walk with the talk. Everything is possible with the Spirit of God.

What a beautiful though Ray. Canada; Paradise lost. Sort of gives us

Thank you, Darrin.
Canada Cana Da
At the Marriage Feast at Cana, Jesus said to them, Fill the water pots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.
And he said to them, Draw out now, and bring it to the governor of the feast. And they bare it.
When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not where it came from: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, And said to him, Every man at the beginning does set out good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but you have kept the good wine until now.
The Best is yet to come!!!
You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Watching the Royal couple tour Province House, the birthplace of the Canadian Confederation in 1867 reminded my of my own visit there so many years earlier without any fanfare in 1980.
Visiting Province House where the Fathers of Cofederation met to create CanaDa, in the thoughts of the heart which only God sees, I knelt down at the bar and prayed CanaDa would fulfill the destiny as described in this article.
Hitch hiking out of Charlottetown it seemed 100’s of cars passed me by. The one that finally did stop to pick me up was driven by Daniel Compton, then Speaker of the PEI Legislative Assembly of Province House. He went out of his way to drive me to the Wood Island Ferry.
I thought that was a confirming sign and wonder my prayer was acceptable and possible with God. The Lord works in mysterious ways.
I wrote to Mr. Compton years after this brief 1 time meeting and he wrote back saying he remembered the encounter. I still have his letter.
nice article Ray
I wasn’t sure if everyone was familiar with all three verses of the anthem, so I posted them
O Canada! Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all Thy Son’s command;
With glowing hearts we see thee rise, the true north, strong and free;
From far and wide, O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!
2. Almighty Love, by thy mysterious pow¹r,
in wisdom guide, with faith and freedom dow¹r;
Be ours a nation evermore that no oppression blights,
Where Justice rules from shore to shore, from lakes to northern lights.
May love alone for wrong atone;
Lord of the lands, make Canada thine own!
3. Ruler Supreme, who hears our humble prayer,
hold our Dominion in thy loving care;
Help us to find, O God, in thee a lasting rich reward,
As, waiting for the better day, we ever stand on guard.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!

Thanks for the contribution, Weldon. The visuals in the video are outstanding! I didn’t know the other verses were part of the National Anthem, but they do support the Hope and Spirit of the article.
All that is needed now is the start by the Individual to practice the FAITH in Almighty God who will help us make it become the Reality for all Royal Canadians living by God’s Royal Law of Love. The True North, Strong and Free, the example to the rest of world on the Way Forward at the Time of Trial and Tribulation on the way!
And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things say he that is holy, he that is true, he that has the key of David, he that opens, and no man shuts; and shuts, and no man opens;
I know your works: behold, I have set before you an open door, and no man can shut it: for you have a little strength, and have kept my word, and has not denied my name.
Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.
Because you have kept the word of my patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which you have, that no man take your crown.
Him that overcomes will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. Revelation 3
