“We know that governments were instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed …” Declaration of Independence, In Congress, July 4, 1776. One of three great American documents. The others being the Constitution itself and our Bill of Rights. Creating the pathways for freedom, liberty and self expression. True God inspired documents because despotic human nature would not in itself allow for such behaviors and expressions enveloped in self governance. Then allowing for the governed to over throw the government by rule of law or force.
What beautiful and magnificent expressions, it’s just so unfortunate that the nations politicians ignore their sworn duty to do just that, which is of course, is to govern according to the consent of the governed. It is even more unfortunate that WE the PEOPLE allow them to get away with it.
That is the way it is and that is the way it will remain. Because most people do not have the guts for a good old constitutional revolution. Mainly because it’s costly in the way of personal sacrifice, and possibly deadly to what one holds dearly, life itself.
Because those mostly rich fat cats from the White House, through the Congress, and reaching into the Federal Courts are not going to role over and play surrender. To the demands of the people, no matter what force or non-forceÂ they employ. Because their are even more rich fat cats, America’s corporate conglomerates will not allow that to occur. The nations real power structure for the governance of the people.
As for myself, there is nothing patriotic about this writer padre. I simply see the government as a kingdom of evil. Opposed to the kingdom of good, the way of Jesus Christ. That is where my patriotism lies. Working with effort, but in a tireless manner, for a time when Jesus will destroy the evil of earthly governments. Ushering in his kingdom and ruling his kingdom from Jerusalem.
Jerusalem by the way is God’s holy city. There will be no peace through out Jerusalem until it’s a city is free of Muslims. Who are the sons and daughters of Lucifer, the great deceiver, who mocks the great God of Abraham and his beloved son Jesus Christ.
For now, I leave these thoughts about the disdain of God for earth bound kingdoms. “And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all of them that sold and bought in the temple, and over threw the tables of the money changers …. And said to them, it is written, my house shall be called a house of prayer, but you have made it a house of thieves. And the blind, and the lame, came into the temple, and he healed them. And when the chief priests [religious leaders] and scribes [law makers] saw the wonderful things he did, and the children crying in the temple, saying, Hosanna [meaning save now to the Son of David]! They were very displeased. And said to him, hear you what these say [save now]? And Jesus said unto them, You! Have you never read, out of the mouths of babes and sucklings you have heard perfect praise?” Matthew 21:12-16.
Setting up the perfect struggle between the bed fellows of the [law makers] [scribes] and the [religious leaders] the [chief priests]. Who together hunger for profit and power over Christ. Who disdained profits and threw the money changers out of the House of God. Not for profits sake alone, but because profitsÂ found no equal distribution among the people, the Christ way. Displeasing them very much then and today! Because the children sang, *save now,* echoed what they knew, but denied, the Christ way is the better way.
It’s the design of Jesus to deliver us from exploitations of our government, today’s scribes and high priests, today’s religious authorities. And most important our natural predisposition to offend God through our sinful natures. Centuries ago, they learned, subdue the Christ followers and the world is free for the taking. And the few, who find life in the mission of Christ will be to small to make a difference.
Be one of those people using your home or elsewhere where timely lectures, and workshops can be given. Be a crusader for the mission of Christ. Which by design, is dimensional, depending upon the ax you have to grind with the power brokers.
May the peace of Jesus be your constant experience. The true source for over coming all adversity. Bound in these words, My peace I give to you, not as the world gives, John 14:27.
