Lili‘uokalani’s faith in God to restore Hawaii lives on

Consider the positive global impacts if the U.S. would relinquish control and reinstate the Hawaiian government. Leading by example, it’d provide invaluable precedents.

Benefits would be immeasurable, implementing God’s ideas for distribution of land, governance and integrating peoples.

How can we expect Israel to work out their differences in that hostile environment if we can’t conceive of a reasonable solution for restoring the Hawaiian Nation?

Like Israelis, Hawaiians identify with ancestral covenants. David Malo wrote “perhaps these people are those spoken of in the Word of God as ‘the lost sheep of the House of Israel.’ “

Biblical principles for restoration are culturally appropriate. The majority of Hawaiian ancestors professed to believe in the “living God” and called him “Father.”

“He’s our God, in charge of the whole earth. And he remembers his Covenant — for a thousand generations he’s been as good as his word . . . Namely, ‘I give you the land’ “ (Psalm 105).

Queen Lili’uokalani wrote, “He will keep His promise, and will listen to the voices of His Hawaiian children lamenting for their homes.”

She died before God’s promise was fulfilled to reinstate the nation of Israel. Lili’uokalani’s ardent faith in God to restore Hawaii lives on.

Hawaiian ancestors along with the forefathers of the United States set the stage for us to act now to show the world God’s way for restoration.

“Then you’ll see how faithfully I’ve loved you and you’ll want even more, saying ‘Great is the Lord–even beyond the borders of Israel!’ “ — God.
