The elect do not need secular governments. What use are they to us? They kill and destroy( sound familiar?). Can they edify and instruct the elect? But still misguided preachers use this portion of Paulís writing to keep their flock subordinated to sinful leaders. I think not, in fact, I will go a step further, not only are we not to be bound to obeying civil governments we have a duty to disobey if they ignore the commandments of Almighty God. What civil governments calls the ď law of the landĒ is , in reality the law of Satan.
In our own Revolution a standard phrase of the day and a rallying cry was, ď No King but Jesus.Ē Its time to bring back that saying. As the elect we are not bound to any government but one, the Kingdom of God, to it we owe our loyalty. As long as the government is in concert with us there is no problem. If they wander away from the commandments of God then we are in direct conflict with the powers that rule.
So if you are still convinced that Paul was writing about secular governments, fine. Letís look at the verses, again, in the context of America.
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.
American government, as originally designed, is a Constitutional Republic. That is, a government of the people, by the people and for the people. We are the rulers of this country not the executive branch, not the legislative branch and certainly not the judicial branch. They are merely employees that we have given the task of running the government, supposedly, for our benefit. Yes, let them be subject to the higher power of the people of this country. We were given this power by God and we are ordained by God. Whoever would usurp the will of the people , in a Republic, are themselves traitors to the cause. They are criminals. They have no rights. Only individuals have rights. Governments, by definition, only have powers.
Only the elect are ordained by Almighty God. The Body of Christ are the only ones officially ordered to rule any nation and ours especially. This was decided before the beginning of time. Nothing has changed. Our ability to rule in a particular way is by the word of God. The ability of those that have been hired to rule, then, depends on us. The capacity to influence a particular series of events for the glory of God is officially in our hands. The authority to rule and to delegate that rule is expressly given to us. We are the one great world power!
As immortal souls our moral and emotional nature is the only truly ordained rule needed for government. Our integrity to do what is right, our intellectual energy to understand the will of God and our emotional maturity based in an unmoving faith in the Creator is everything that is need to rule justly. We are the embodiment of the Holy Spirit and as such we have the authority to rule backed up by the most awesome power in the universe.
We are subjects of this country as well as the rulers but we hold dual citizenship. Not only are the saints citizens of the United States we are citizen of heaven. The elect are those who owe allegiance to Almighty God. As such we are dependant on the one true God of the universe. Our rule here on earth is conditional on the keeping of His commandments. The Body of Christ is under the final control and authority, not of some centralized traitorous government, but of the Lord God Almighty. He is the only authority that we, as the elect, have any business giving jurisdiction and control of our lives to. He is the Holy Spirit. We are the higher powers, through that Holy Spirit, on this planet and especially here in America.
2: Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
Those of our employees who resist the power of the rightful governors of this fair land resist the ordinances of Almighty God and shall receive the just reward for their actions. Those who would deny the inspiration and protection of Almighty God in the history of this country are FOOLS! The men and women controlled by the master liar and his cohorts who try to prevent the duly ordained rulers of this nation from carrying out their official duties open themselves up to eternal damnation. Those who would usurp our Constitutional guarantees struggle against the authoritative order of Almighty God. His promise? They will be condemned to eternal punishment in hell. Make no mistake God means what He says.
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:
You have no fear of the people as long as your policies are fair and just and Constitutionally sound. We only have praise for those who have the best interests of the people in their hearts and actions. It has been established that the true rulers of a Republic are the people. Face it, saints of God, the federal government, of our country, is afraid. They are afraid of our God and by Him they are afraid of us. How else could one explain their unnatural terror of the Ten Commandments or the ability and power of children in prayer? They know that their works are evil. They understand that if we unite and reclaim our God given rights they will fall by the wayside. Their corrupt power will fade into the history books. . . to where it belongs. They cannot stand in the face of a Holy Spirit filled elect.
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.
We, the people, are ministers of good for you but if you ignore the Constitution and write laws that are detrimental to the welfare of this nation and its rightful rulers. . . Be afraid! We do not bear arms for sport or hunting but to protect the people from enemies both foreign and DOMESTIC! We are the ministers of God, doing His work here on earth and as such we have the right and duty to seek Godís revenge on those that do evil to our country.
Be afraid. . . be very afraid. There is no power on earth that can match the power inherent in the Body of Christ. The very word of Almighty God is our sword. Dare you stand before it? Unadvisable! Others have tried and like David and Goliath we will put you down with what ever device our God recommends.
5: Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.
Be careful when you make any laws that subjugate the will and freedom of the ministers of God. Not only for fear of retribution but because it is the right thing to do. It is our Constitutional right to take the rule of this country back for the traitors that have infiltrated that government. They are to be subject to us. . . not we to them. The last will be first within the will of Almighty God. You are stepping on mine filled ground. Be careful, mind your step.
The eyes of the saints are upon you. Our intense anger will not be stayed forever. Even more important than that, check your moral compass against your sense of right and wrong. Your behavior is ,at this point, like a spoiled child who has decided that only his will is of prime importance. Soon you will step over that, proverbial, line in the sand and find that you never had any power, save, the power that we, through God, allowed you.
6: For this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.
Respect your employers, not special interests. Constantly keep this prime directive in mind. Your well being depends on it.
The Body of Christ are the ministers of God. We represent a very powerful sovereign who will not allow the dissemination of His chosen. We are the diplomatic agents of the one, true, God. We are also His administers of justice. For this reason God requires that you show us our due gratitude, respect and admiration. Not just lip service to hide your damnable lies but true allegiance. You are dependant on us not the other way around and we are due our payment of respect. God requires you to have no interruptions to this respect and admiration. There will be no leniency to anyone who declares war on the saints.
7: Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.
Give us the respect we deserve as the rightful rulers of this country and as ministers of God. Make sure the laws you pass are Constitutional, fair and just. Understand that there is a line and that once crossed there will be dire consequences. Remember we are the true rulers of America and as such we are due the honor of your obedience to the people and the Lord God Almighty.
We expect what is owed us. It is only fitting that you keep the law of the land. It is proper and appropriate that you honor the rulers of this country. It is our right. You are dependant on us and you know it. That is why you fear us. In the final analysis you know in your heart that you will lose if you choose to go against Godís people. Traditionally this society was based on the worth of the individual. That everyone was equal under God and under the rule of law. You have usurped that tradition and brought down the wrath of the Most High and His people. For your own good I implore you to adhere to the custom of our America. If you choose to continue with this insanity something unwelcome to you and our country will occur. You have a right to feel anxious. God will not be mocked! He requires reverence and awe.
You, who have and continue to, disrespect the ideals that this country was founded upon have an obligation to fulfill and an agreement to keep. You are under contract to the people and under this contract you are required to pay public respect to the true rulers of this country. You are bound under a moral course of action to pay your debt of gratitude for our allowing you to run this country. Do it!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
