Whenever critical events have shocked people into panic mode, the majority of people become suddenly vulnerable and willing to surrender to whatever their government demands of them. During such crises, we’ve always submitted to our government authorities as our saviors, to resolve the crises by whatever means they demand, or condition us to accept.
Today, with the volumes of information available, the capacity to have higher levels of education, improved standards of living for more people than in previous generations, the advance in technology and health-care, and more means of entertainment and quality of life, when major events occur such as 9/11, SARS, Avian-Flu’ and recently Swine-Flu’ occur, instinctively we feel that either a natural disaster has occurred or we’ve been invaded by foreign enemies.
Because policies have been made in previous generations and year after year to increase the hardships of workers and students, most people don’t have much time or interest to do more than get an education, find a decent paying job, party a little and raise a family. For the most serious concerns which affect our lives, security, roads and bridges, health-care policies and standards of living, we grow up to instinctively trust and believe that our elected officials, law-enforcement agencies, clergy and public education authorities are motivated to do what is in our best interests.
1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
Apostle Paul used to be a ruthless assassin for Rome, and his job was to eliminate Christians. After circumstances occurred, which damaged his eyes, he became a Christian.—And the top most respected leader in the Early Church. For the most part, laws are or were based on scripture. There are some things, however, which I have seriously thought about in recent years, after working in a religious movement during the ‘70s-80s.
The above scripture probably was true in his day, because conditions then were much less complex than they became, at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. During the shift, as science and industrialization advanced, economics systems and financial institutions became more complex, and eventually the business and corporations got more powerful—including the military-industrial complex!
This led to the ability of money and the biggest corporations to push governments around, and to forget about what the voters wanted. Alot of decent people have run for public office, and any U.S. presidents who spoke against the Federal Reserve and International Bankers were either assassinated, or survived a botched assassination—Ronald Reagan! However, they took out his body guard, with a permanent injury.
Ever since Oliver Stone produced the JFK movie, the mainstream media have turned the term “conspiracy theory” into an automatic sarcastic laugh, at anyone who accumulates evidence-based research to suggest that a crime has taken place, and well-known people are the suspects. If they don’t continue to discredit a growing number of alternative media networks springing up, their bosses will just cut their budgets. In effect, the mainstream media have abandoned the principles objective journalism was founded on.
One reason I think most people refuse to consider evidence when it is presented to them, is because they are powerless. When it comes time to go to the polls and vote someone into office, all of a sudden the mainstream media rallies the “powerless people” to demonstrate their power in a “democratic society”. However, if there is reason to believe that their government or elements of their government, have either carried out or accommodated aggression in some manner against the people under their authority, the victims refuse to believe where the evidence leads, or they feel that they have no recourse except through the “legal system”!
The legal system, however, is becoming more difficult to work with, because it has been taken over by the same mob-bosses. An example of this is where some cases of euthanasia of disabled children in Canada have been ignored, and other cases where any penalty was reduced or suspended.
2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
During Apostle Paul’s day this scripture applied, because the laws during the Roman Empire were fair. Before Jesus was born, there were no “Christians”, and anti-religious rampages were not the engine behind legislative design of laws. So, it is safe to conclude that for the most part, the laws of the land were intended for the proper role of governing—not oppression and tyranny!
3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
This scripture right here should shake the poop out of every American who suffered losses of loved-ones at Pearl Harbour, Vietnam, the Gulf-War ‘91, Iraq and Afghanistan, and because of the lying pigs who engineered the massive loss of lives in 9/11!
I don’t mind being submissive to the powers who are ordained by God. But Apostle Paul clearly identified how we can know what kind of “rulers” we have.—God’s “rulers” are not a terror to good works! So, it makes sense to have a healthy fear of the powers ordained by God, if they are only a terror to the evil works.
The Pittsburgh G-20 protests showed a few things. It showed the “rulers” who terrorized peaceful protestors were not God’s rulers.—So, where the hell were God’s rulers, to terrorize and drive off all the evil rulers in military uniform??? It’s time you Christian Patriots stopped being scared to death, and thinking that the NWO military is ordained of God.—They are a TERROR to GOOD!
4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
So, where were you guys?—The ministers of God? Where were you guns, tanks, helicopter gun-ships, revengers to execute wrath upon them that did evil at the G-20 against peaceful protestors?
My challenge to every real Christian is, please read this and consider the Bible verses included. I think too many people have funny ideas, thinking that we should do everything possible to help give the Anti-Christ his world. Anything in God’s will, will happen whenever God sees fit. However, my vision is to keep part of the world for us, God’s people.
Our forefathers left the DARK-AGES in Europe, and came here. What they fought and died for to give us, they never intended to let future generations take it all away from us. During the reign of the Anti-Christ, there is a place in “the wilderness”. In that wilderness, the Church is fed throughout the entire Great Tribulation period, until the second coming of Jesus Christ.
14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
Although I can’t get into a detailed class on Bible Prophecy here, “the woman” is a reference to the Church—all God’s people who recognize Jesus Christ as the Messiah!
Let the Devil have his world.—But, we need to keep part of it sectioned off for us! Everything in this world is God’s, and don’t anybody forget it. If we need the newest weapons systems, ammunition, communications tracking systems—anything!—It’s all God’s! If we need it, take it—money or not. You guys have already paid for it!
