“And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

As our pastor pointed out, what did happen on July 4th was a ‘meeting of the minds’ and an agreement/adoption of the language of the Declaration of Independence.
So, July 4th has to do with a formal declaration (of the language and basis) of independence, as the written contract or declaration was agreed to and voted on.

Excerpt from History.com
“On July 2, 1776, the Continental Congress voted to approve a Virginia motion calling for separation from Britain. The dramatic words of this resolution were added to the closing of the Declaration of Independence. Two days later, on July 4, the declaration was formally adopted by 12 colonies after minor revision. New York approved it on July 19. On August 2, the declaration was signed.”
