Blog for Podcast #31 (How should a Christian respond to how the government acts)

How should a Christian respond to how the government acts


Welcome again to another study of the Bible and I am Dreamwalker1960 As a reminder you can read the transcripts of all my podcasts at Also you do not need to download podbean if you wish to listen. You can use Listen Notes, iHeart Radio, Amazon Music or Audible, Google Podcasts or Apple Podcasts.

This lesson has three parts to it.

The first is how we as Christians are to know why certain rulers come into being, and what we as Christians are to do when it comes to those in power. The Second part is what the Bible says about how we as Christians will be treated when Christ is soon to return. And lastly what has been said in recent weeks by those in places of power.


Daniel 4:17 – For this has been decreed by the messengers; it is commanded by the holy ones, so that everyone may know that the Most High rules over the kingdoms of the world. He gives them to anyone he chooses— even to the lowliest of people.”

God give power to those He chooses. “Even to the lowliest of people.” Prime examples of the lowliest were Hitler and Stalin. Each of these men cause millions to die in concentration and re-education camps. For His goal is ultimately to bring all of humanity to recognize that He is in charge of all events.

This is made clear in Psalms 22:28:

“For royal power belongs to the Lord. He rules all the nations.”

So God places people in power and controls them. Even those that deny Him.

But why?

Let’s look at the most popular of the recent lowly leaders in history. That being Adolf Hitler. His actions not only resulted in the Second World War. It also resulted in 13 million people being killed in concentration camps. Within this 13 million were 6 million Jews. Those that are the promised children of God. This mass slaughter of the Jewish people made them to distrust all the people in all the nations they were living in throughout the world. They decided then and there to reform their nation. The only nation in the history of the world to cease to exist and then be reformed in 1948, which fulfills Ezekiel 36:24.

“For I will gather you up from all the nations and bring you home again to your land.”

In a large part, it was the actions of Hitler that broke the proverbial camel’s back and caused them to return to their promised lands and reform the nation of Israel once again.

This makes it clear that God places those in power He wishes to be in power, and none that calls themselves a Christian should question these events or who is placed into power. So those that opposed Donald Trump were in fact denying the will of God. As is made clear in the verses, which began this lesson, which I have placed as examples. This goes for Biden and Harris as well, if that is what happens. It is not for humans to judge them but for God to do so. How they wish to live their eternity is their problems not ours.

So were these that opposed these people justified to do so? Is now the question we need to address, and so moves us into the second part of this study.

Tutus 3:1 – Remind the believers to submit to the government and its officers. They should be obedient, always ready to do what is good.

Romans 13:1 – Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God.

So Christians are to obey those that are placed into power. And follow all the laws of the land. Like for example following the speed limit. To not rising up in rebellion against a corrupt power that wishes to subjugate and dominate, by imposing laws which takes away our freedoms. We work within the laws if they do not maintain the goodness that comes from the Bible.

Now admittedly this was not done in the late 1700 in the American colonies, but those in government were not maintaining goodness either. However, at that time not all the pieces were falling into place to fulfill certain prophecies. That is not the case at this time, which leads us into the third part of this study. Now as was covered in the series, which we finished last week about the Olivet Discourse, this is what Jesus Christ stated to look out for when His time of return would be near.

Wars and rumor of wars, false prophets, Races will fight other races and as a result nations will go to war with nations. Famine will take place, which is being caused by the COVID issue, and earthquakes will become more numerous. But this is only the first part. (Matthew 24:4-8)

The next part is something that needs to be noted, in particular verse 9

“Then you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are my followers.”

Within the last few weeks things have been said. Actions have been taken. Now there is evidence that ground work has been laid out in the past to address issues like this. But I have nothing solid to offer here to support that so I will not continue in this line of commentary. However, what has been established I will.

Since the election a theme has started to be seen. The making of a list to separate those that did not fall in line with the dictates of those that see themselves as your betters. If you are a follower of Christ this should not come as a surprise to you. I have been making this clear if you have been listening to my podcasts or reading my blog posts. However, you shouldn’t need to hear or read it from me. As I stated before, you would already be aware of this if you truly are a believer of Jesus Christ as our Savior.

The second division has occurred between the sheep and the goats.

The next division is being made by those that wish to dominate and control. This practice has been done before. It was done during the French Revolution, which I see as the very first Socialist revolution. Which resulted in Napoleon coming to power as the dictator of France and the wars that followed, in which he sought to have world domination.

These lists were made in the 1910s as the communist came to power in what would become the U.S.S.R. due to their revolution. Where again the ultimate goal was global domination.

These lists were also made in the 1930s by National Socialist Workers Party as they came to dominance in Germany. Where once again the goal was to have the world under the thumb of the Third Riche. This list also ended up with the other 7 million of the 13 million mentioned before. This other seven included those that the people in power did not see as worthy. They included Gypsies, actors, scholars, scientist, musicians and Christians.

Again these lists were made in the 1950s and 60s as the followers of Mao purged those that disagreed with them from China. Where their goal is still that of global domination, for the followers of Mao still have the reigns of that nation. At this time they have lists which are used to removed Muslims and Christians and those seeking freedom to live as they chose.

Do not think the threat of a list is just idle talk that will amount to nothing. What is different between those times and today is that this is not just happening in one nation. It is something that is spreading out globally. The last place to truly experience this, is what use to be the last stronghold of God. The United States. Now the list has arrived, so it is time for this to be fulfilled:

Matthew 24:9 – “Then you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are my followers.”

You will see the great apostasy come to fulfillment. Many that call themselves followers of God will turn upon their fellows and betray them. They will still go to the buildings called “churches,” and they will continue to live the religious lifestyle. Believing they are one with God. However, they have in reality turned their backs upon Him. Wishing to live in their comfort and luxuries they have gathered to themselves here on earth instead of the treasures they should have sought after in Heaven.

Deuteronomy 8:11-20 – “But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you do not forget the Lord your God and disobey his commands, regulations, and decrees that I am giving you today. 12 For when you have become full and prosperous and have built fine homes to live in, 13 and when your flocks and herds have become very large and your silver and gold have multiplied along with everything else, be careful! 14 Do not become proud at that time and forget the Lord your God, who rescued you from slavery in the land of Egypt. 15 Do not forget that he led you through the great and terrifying wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, where it was so hot and dry. He gave you water from the rock! 16 He fed you with manna in the wilderness, a food unknown to your ancestors. He did this to humble you and test you for your own good. 17 He did all this so you would never say to yourself, ‘I have achieved this wealth with my own strength and energy.’ 18 Remember the Lord your God. He is the one who gives you power to be successful, in order to fulfill the covenant he confirmed to your ancestors with an oath.

19“But I assure you of this: If you ever forget the Lord your God and follow other gods, worshiping and bowing down to them, you will certainly be destroyed. 20 Just as the Lord has destroyed other nations in your path, you also will be destroyed if you refuse to obey the Lord your God.”

God also made a covenant with Christianity when He made the United States, remember that.

God will destroy nations that turn their backs upon Him. He did it to Israel, but as mentioned before He also promised to reform their nation and it is here today. So, God’s word is true and faithful. So we need to listen and learn, and be ready for the lists that are coming, or already are here.

Remember when it comes not to fight it, but embrace it.

Romans 12:14 – Bless those who persecute you. Don’t curse them; pray that God will bless them.

For we are blessed as is shown in Matthew 5:11

“God blesses you when people mock you and persecute you and lie about you and say all sorts of evil things against you because you are my followers.”

Embrace the pain. Embrace the torture. Embrace the beatings, and embrace the death.

For we will be blessed and called martyrs for our Savior Jesus Christ.

John 14:1-4 – “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. 2 There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? 3 When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. 4 And you know the way to where I am going.”

God Bless

The “me” culture.. the destroyer of nations

There are several cultures at work within the world, as there are several cultures at work within the church. Now I say “church” as a whole of all that say they are believers in God. In fact, in Revelation there are seven churches a.k.a. cultures listed.

The most dominate culture for all the cultures within the world and the church is the one that says, “Everything revolves around ‘me”.”

Yes, the “me” culture is everywhere. It reminds me of the age of Galileo Galilei, in which the culture of the time was also self-centered to the point of stating that the earth was the center of the universe and everything revolved about it.

It is also in this time that written material was available, but mainly to those of great wealth. My point in mentioning this is what I have been witnessing more and more in today’s schools in the United States. That being to teach the basics and to do that poorly and not teach knowledge. The “histories” being taught today are not complete or changed to no longer teach of freedom, but on reliance upon the state; simply socialism, which is a step below communism. Communism, which has been shown to be corrupt, self-serving to those in power and ultimately destructive to the very nation that practices it.

I have seen the news broadcast (when news was worth watching) of long lines for the ordinary citizens of the former U.S.S.R. just to get the basic foods to survive till the next week at which time they would have to stand in line once again. While those in powers or of import to the nation lived in luxury. This is what the citizens of the United States are now be led to do, by those that are in power at this time. Daily we hear of corruption in various departments of the government. All by those that have been in office for their entire live. That is not how this nation was designed to work. Those that go to the government were meant to stay a few years then leave. That is what it needs to be returned to.

The “me” culture is not what is taught within the Bible. Self-sacrifice is what is taught. Jesus completed the ultimate self-sacrifice, upon the cross. Another example is that of Job. A man who was rich and was reduced to a sick beggar in the streets homeless. He kept his faith in God and all was restored to him. Job always placed God first. Yes, he lamented about his suffering, but once he placed God first things improved.

Right now, the U.S. is suffering and many are lamenting, but recently there are some signs that people are starting to place God first again. Once most do this and return God to the core of this nation you will see this nation rebound.

We need to strive to remove those in powers that are so blinded by their “me” mentality that they do not see that they are doing anything wrong. When in reality they are. They feel they have broken no laws. What is worse the corruption has spread so far that is affecting those that in the past exposed this corruption to the world. Now they sing hand in hand that the world is better to have corruption rule the land rather than God rule the land.

This nation was founded upon religious freedom. People moved here to get away from a government that was the church. Now you have those that say there is too much God in the government and are forcing the true God out only to replace Him with the god of “me”

Which, to me is the ultimate form of corruption. As the statement says, “ultimate power corrupts ultimately.”

Confessions of a screwed up middle aged man: my statement to Breitbart

At the end of the show on Patriot you had a phone call, which at the end of which it was thrown out the need to separate church and state.
I have to say I was taken aback by these words coming out of the host mouth. Here is the reason. I see any that throw out that belief to be on the left, yet this is called a conservative show.
The Constitution says the government cannot establish or as the less informed would say “make” a government run religion. It then goes on to state that the government cannot to quote “impeding the free exercise of religion.” That is all it says. This means that every court decision that for example removed God from school, removed the Ten Commandments from public property were in fact a violation of the first amendment. Since the court is a branch of the government and their decisions impeded the free exercise of religion.
Should religion be involved in government? You have said no it should not. I say it must be involved. Should Ted Cruz be using it as a shield? No he should not, but it is something he should not be ashamed to state either. Does he throw it out there too much? Possibly.
Does making religion be involved in government make a theocracy? No it does not. William Penn was a Quaker, yet most of how the Constitution and the Bill of Right which was formulated and then finalized, was based upon the colony of Pennsylvania’s constitution written by him. Is this nation a theocracy? No it is not, yet it was in basic senses written by a religious person.
One of the main reason this nation is in decline is due to the fact that God was removed from our schools. Here is what the Bible does say:
Daniel 4:17 – For this has been decreed by the messengers; it is commanded by the holy ones, so that everyone may know that the Most High rules over the kingdoms of the world. He gives them to anyone he chooses— even to the lowliest of people.”
Titus 3:1 – Remind the believers to submit to the government and its officers. They should be obedient, always ready to do what is good.
As for the misquoted statement of “give unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s and unto God which is God’s” that is referring to tithing otherwise known as taxes when referring to the government end.
Any that call themselves Christian should always place God first (Mark 12:29-30). If you place God first and foremost in your mind then God IS always involved in all that you do even in government. Otherwise government is impeding the free exercise of having God involved in your life.
Many chose not to have religions involved in their lives and that is their choice, but to continually state that the church and state must be separate is actually socialist and communist thinking. God must be involved in everything especially the governing of a nation, whose existence is controlled by God per Daniel. So you must have religion involved, but not to the point of a theocracy, but still involved.

This year of turmoil

As we come to the close of another years, and as we approach the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. I wish to reflect upon what has transpired in the United States in this last year.
As was made clear to Nebuchadnezzar as God placed him through trails and tribulation until he came to the point of saying without a doubt that Daniel’s God was the one and only true God. But not only that, but that any person in political power truly and only is placed there by God allowing them to be there. We must remember that this is true for governments throughout all the ages of man.
That being said, we must come to realize that our current President who through his actions or inactions has nearly single handedly destroyed this once proud nation, has done so not by his hand as I feel he truly believes to be so, but by God’s will.
“Why?” Many that have just read my above words are shouting in anger.
Because God is punishing those that live in this nations for forgetting where our “pride” came from. It was in the belief in God. That we as a nation severed and honored God. There will be those that shout out that this nation caused slavery is that by God? The answer is no that was by human greed and avarice. It was by the actions of the believe in God that actually caused the end of slavery, but due to the sins of humanity that had caused slavery a blood offering was required and so we had the Civil War as a result. Did that end human’s mistreatment to other humans? No, for as long as humanity lives within a corrupt body we will, especially when not taught correctly, hurt other humans.
But it was due to our faith in God that empowered and enabled us to end Hitler who was slaughtering millions just for the belief that a select few were better than the majority. This same mentality was seen in the U.S.S.R. and is South Africa, and it was through our belief and faith in God that helped us to achieve these goals of causing change to the former Soviet Union and in the government of South Africa.
But in this year we have seen the fruits for turning from God ripen and bear corrupt fruit. For God is now yelling at us to return to Him. To acknowledge Him as Lord over all that we do and say, but humanity has forgotten the true meaning of the Bible within the borders of this once proud nation. Now we are the laughing stock to the entire world and those that once feared us due to our faith and believe in the one true God have risen up. For when no strength is seen is when those that are petty selfish, and self-serving come into the light. Not only in violence but in a totally disregard for what is morally right in the eyes of God. It is when the “bullies” come out to play and shove around those they see as weak and ignorant.
They see Christianity as weak so they seek to force it out. They see the populous is weak for they allow those that are abusing the law to do as they so please even though what they are doing is against the law. But since the “bullies” shout and stare those down that challenge them, what was the law is no more. What was good in the sight of God is now seen as corrupt and ugly, and those the sit in their homes complaining yet have not raised a hand or a voice to stop the “bullies” are labeling themselves as what they truly are. Traitors to the Creator of all there was, is, and ever will be.
As we look about at all the bloodshed that has passed this last year. More blood than has been spilled since the Vietnam War, and more innocent blood then has been shed since World War II, who is to truly blame for the hardships this nation is not suffering?
Only those that do not stand up for the Creator. Only those that do not stand in the middle of the street and shout at the top of their lungs: “NO MORE!”
Only when those that say a sin is a sin and you must leave sin behind or suffer eternal torment, actually say it to the face of those that truly live in sin.
Once that occurs then, just maybe, just maybe God may save us from ourselves.
End Political Correctness for it is not correct and is a sin against God.
Remove those that wish to remove God from our Nation. For the First amendment says that the government cannot make religion, but it also says they cannot stop you from freely practicing your believe in God. So by removing the Ten Commandments from public property, by removing God from school. The government is in violation of the constitution and as the people of this nation we have the duty, not the right, but the duty to end the tyranny that is now within the United States Government.
And it is our duty to remove from office, any that denies there is a God, encourages sin against God and are professed liars. For all these things are a sin against God and per the Bible any that support a sin commit this same sin and must answer for it before God Himself.
So remember, all these horrors we have seen in this nation this year are our own faults and only by returning to God can we end this horror, which will only get worse if we do not beg forgiveness from the Maker of the universe, God through His Son the Lord Jesus Christ.

Christians and the vote and why it is important to place God first.

Let’s start with the greatest commandants given by Christ:
Luke 10:27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
First and foremost as professed children of God we are to place Him first in ALL that we do. This includes voting. That is why I have come to the point that when I go to the ballot box I do not say “I am voting for so and so” I say “I am voting for God.”
Now yes I know no one is perfect and we all sin. That is why it is so important to go and vote for God. We must find someone that reflects God as much as possible. Will this person win? Maybe not, but we placed God first. If that there is no one left that we feel best represents God then we must choose as the statement goes “the lesser of two evil.” In other words the one that is closest to God.
Now we get to the next part of what I want to try and get across.
Matthew 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
This statement Jesus made to me is the key of where all Christians should come from when they go to vote after the afore mentioned Luke 10:27. Why? Because we as Christians should always think like this. Now some would say that there is the separation of church and states. I would say being Christian and following the first verse I placed here does not give you that option, but let’s look at the first amendment anyway:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances,
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion: The government has no right to make any law to make a religion. Now why say this? This is because of what Henry the Eighth did so it would allow him to live in sin and end up marrying several times. This was a key element that led people to come to America in the first place. To freely practice their faith without the government getting involved.
or prohibiting the free exercise thereof: This is the most important statement in the First Amendment about religion. This is the core of the statement “separation of church and states” What this means is that the government cannot stick its nose into religion NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND, but many have been taught it is the other way around. As you can see that is not the case and needs to be remembered and passed on to all so they will know what is the truth.
Per Luke 10:27 if we place God first we must place religion into how we deal with government which first and foremost is the ballot box which leads me to Matthew 10:33. One party has officially removed the word God from any of their public documentation. So to me they are denying Christ and so Christ is denying them to God.
With that in mind and remember Luke 10:27 we as Christians have one full party we should never support in anyway shape or form until they see fit to once again officially acknowledge God. So to me there is no Democratic Party. This leaves Independents and Republicans.

The moral focal point (separation between church and state and the act of the government trying to make a law affecting the church)

This is an item of huge debate. When watching the movie “God is not Dead” this point was taken up in the last part of the students debates to prove that there is a God.
It is this discussion that I wish to say a few things about.
The point came up that if there is no God then there is no need for morality, but if there is no need for morality what will be the result? When you truly think upon it there is only one conclusion: Anarchy!
For without morals you are free to cheat, to steal, to murder, to rape, to commit genocide if you so desire, because there is no need for any laws of any type. Why? Because laws in most countries came from the Bible. It is from those instructions that was given unto Moses upon Mount Sinai that all law that we now have today goes by. Now before we go further one clear misconception must be addressed. Moses did not come down with just 10 commandments but ALL the laws given in Exodus and Leviticus, from how to make the Ark of the Covenant to not tattooing your skin.
We are now at a crossroads. A crossroads that is being debated amongst nine people that are supposed to be learned people. This issue they are debating would affect how things have been done since after the time of Abraham. What is even more important is that this actually challenges the first amendment of the constitution. (Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof).
Now why do I say after, because what is being debated was done and allowed in and before Abraham. The world at this time was chaotic and dangerous to all. Why? Because there was no laws. Anarchy reigned free and allowed crime after crime and sin after sin to be and to cause nothing but trouble for all.
God sought out a good man and only found one truly worthy of His desires for the world and that was Abraham. From him came Judaism, Islam, and Christianity all followed laws. Laws that were given unto them by God as a way to end the anarchy, chaos and destruction. Why? For if it continued there would be no human race at all, for our ancestors would have killed each other leaving none alive and we would not be where we are today.
To change this basic principle that only a man can marry a woman and only that is considered a holy union under God is asking us to return to the was of the times of Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities about them thus crossing the line into religion. We are inviting the legalization of all type of depravity, just by changing this one definition of God laws we are saying that man is greater than God. Once this is done then the human race has sealed it judgment before God and His wrath will soon follow. Will it follow the day after this law changes? No. Will it be in a week a month? No, but it will come and it would be the anarchy that those that do not wish to follow the moral focal point given unto all. Then they will learn that it was needed and that God IS real and they will not like what they will discover in the time of anarchy to come. For those that thought themselves made free will find they are captives to their own sins.
(SUGGESTION: Remove the term “Marriage” form the government side of the issue. Call it a contractual partnership between two people this makes it legal per the government and keeps it separate form religion which dictates that a marriage is between a man and a woman as is dictated within all religions.)

My State of the Union

The world is falling into chaos and at this time most in the United States can do little. Why? Because most have surrendered their rights away to the government.
The United States was formed as a Constitutional Republic. It is no longer one. It has not been one since early in the twentieth century when Constitutional amendments were added.
One of the biggest was how a Senator is picked. For some reason it was decided to have them voted for by the general public. Maybe this was an anti-graft measure, but I am not sure. As it is the graft is worse than ever anyway. It would have been nice if they placed term limits on those in the congress and the senate like they did for the president. There is a bill out there right now to impose term limits and it is sorely needed. It would remove people that are there that should have left long ago. Prime examples are Pelosi and Bainer. There are others on both sides that need to go. Fresh blood needs to flow in the hallways of the Capitol. Much like those that got elected in the last election, but more need to go.
We need to return to the governing that would bring those to congress that were voted by the people of their district and they would listen to them and truly represent them. The term “career politician” should not be.
I was pleased with how Joni Ernst was in the Republican response to Mr. Obama’s State of the Union Address. Her statements gave me hope and encouragement. Unlike that of Mr. Obama’s Fantasy Island speech, by the way where is this nation he was talking about. I would like to move there, since the one I live in is a big mess. Made so mainly by those that wish to have the government run everything. Oh by the way, they call that a dictatorship or Socialist State, not a Republic.
A republic is a nation that is run BY the people and FOR the people. Not the government for the government as it now is. Where is the bills that call for a change in the way government employees are reviewed? Where is the bills that makes it possible to more easily fire them when they are caught sitting around doing nothing?
Where the bills that remove terrible teaches from our schools? Where are the bills that change our school system to allow it to complete against other nations around the world?
Do you know that Japan does better to educate their children then the USA does? Do you know that they have YEAR AROUND SCHOOLING?
Yet you say that we need this for our school to a teacher and they scoff at you and say “That’s not going to happen.” I can use quotes there because I actually heard that from a group of teachers when I suggested it to them.
We need year around schooling, ESPECIALLY in urban environments. I totally understand how the schools systems is now. Three summer months off for those that live in rural communities, because once the main livelihood of this nation was rural.
Now that is not the case. We need year around schooling. Four weeks on, two weeks off. This is still three months off. Just split up. It has been documented that when done in this fashion knowledge retention is increased so the children learn more and faster. This alone would do wonders for this nation. Yet I hear nothing on it. ANYWHERE. Why?
Also I did not like several of Mr. Obama’s suggestions:
Free community college at the expense of those that took advantage of the 529 college tuition savings fund. So taking from those that have saved for college and giving to those that did not. I don’t get it.
Saying he caused fuel prices to drop when all Liberals including him have been again fragging. Private sector oil production increased 61% while government production reduced 6%. Who is it that really help the gas prices to go down? It was the private sector. This is how this nation was originally designed to work. This is what those on the left wish to destroy. So how can you take credit for something you wish to destroy? You cannot. Free enterprise is who did it not the man in the White House.
No mention of a balanced budget amendment, WHICH is needed. He says the greatest threat to our children is “global warming” I say the greatest threat is the deficit. A deficit HE doubled and refuse to address.
We need across the board tax reform. One flat rate for everyone or one that increases form 5% to 30% with NO exemptions. No loopholes. Everyone and every company pays this tax. We do not need more “Obamacare” economics. It has destroyed the healthcare system. We have lost several businesses that have moved offshore and it is all due to taxing the rich and corporations. The state of this nation all lies at the door step of those that follow the teaching of Socialism not Republicism.
Return this nation to the people and return this nation to God.

History repeating itself seems to be a trend

What I am going to relate to you will for the most part fall on deaf ears, but it is a tale written time and again throughout history. It is the dreams and desires of the few, the few that think for one reason or the other that what they say and think is the correct way to do things. For a short time, they succeed, but for one reason or another, it always fails, until the next few come along and start it all over again. Not realizing that they are just living a loop of corruption, misery and pain. They delude themselves into thinking they are better, smarter, have a better understanding of the world then the “average” person does; unaware that they are in reality just another “average” person themselves.
There have been recent examples in the news lately, yet the people do not listen or even notice them. That is the true sorrow, for if people did take the time to notice then the horrors of the Holocaust would never have happened. This was one reason the founding fathers of the United States tried to change how government was run and handled. Mainly to prevent the few from gaining enough power to manipulate the government to allow them to do just what they are now doing.
What are they doing? They are heading us down the road to people like Caesar, like Napoleon, like Hitler and Stalin. They are heading this nation down the same road that resulted in wars, starvation, corruption and murder. All in the name of what is right, yet all along only resulting in death, mayhem and destruction. The Roman Empire fell apart. Napoleon was cast out after war and turmoil. Hitler murdered millions for the glory of the “master race.” While Stalin and all other communist horded the money letting the common people to starve and die.
These are the actions of those that though they knew best, and knew more. These are the acts of those that called themselves patriots. Yet all along they were thinking solely of themselves and their own reward. They thought and think the common citizen too ignorant to know “what is good for them.” Not realizing that what is good for them lies in a different place, and a different way.
Can we save this nation? Maybe. What will it cost? Time, money and sacrifice. The welfare system must be reformed. A work program to train people must be made. Term limits to those in a political office must be created. Universities must be reformed and purged of those that wish to demean and discredit the very nation they live within.
What is most important is the need to return God to the center of this nation. God must be placed where He belongs. The Bible must be read by all. If they choose to accept what is within the pages of this book is still up to them, they will go into their choices knowing the fates they have decided to pursue after.
For as long as God is pushed aside there will be those that will become tyrants over others. Some will do so with good intentions, but without God it will wither and rot. We see the rotten fruit now.
Riots given strength by those that should not be saying a word, yet the speak and make things worse. All this is coming from one party in the USA. It is a political party that has removed God from any document associated with them. They embrace all that will cause strive and cause you to turn to them for aid. While most blindly go along with them listening to their lies of hatred and discord.
This nation has fallen on hard times all due to this one political group, yet most think it was not them that have caused their problems, but if they would just look and realize that their intent is to bring about disharmony and disputes, all designed to distract and discourage.
But can we save this nation? I do not know, for far too many still listen to the Democratic Party. A party that is following the same road that led to the fall of Rome, the Napoleonic war, World War II and Communist Russia. (By the way Socialism is Communism).

The Christian Crossroads called the Vote

Those that call themselves Christian are at a crossroads. For too long they have set by quietly and allowed too much to happen that is now destroying the very society that once flourished within the borders of the United States.
The most powerful tool at their disposal is the ballot box, yet they do not bother to vote.
In the last major election, many that call themselves Christian refused to vote for the Republican candidate for president due to that fact that he is Mormon.
As a result, the current president was re-elected and the United States has stated its spiral into quickly become a third world country. This is the fault of those that refused to support a Mormon and instead did not vote or voted for the man now in office.
This is not how those that call themselves Christian should act. They should vote their values even if a person that is running does not follow theirs.
Those that call themselves Christian should know what their values are. Not only are they listed as the Ten Commandments but also we are supposedly taught to be like Christ.
Jesus taught many things. It took four book from four different apostles to gather the most of the view of how we should live and act as Christians. Yet many that call themselves Christian do not live their life’s like they should.
Many chose to live for themselves and think only of their own reward and glory upon this earth. This is totally opposite what Christ said is correct and righteous to the Christian faith and believes. Many seek out for the rewards offered in this temporal life we now live in. What they should be seeking is their reward beyond this life.
Right this moment someone who calls themselves Christian just said there is not reward beyond this life.
Then I say to those that just said that; then you are simply acting and not truly Christian.
Which explains why you have not voted for Biblical values, as you should, but for your own selfish desires and wants.
Christians are called to be humble, to place all others before themselves, especially if they seek to be a leader.
Christian values do not support those that wish to commit sin. So how in good conscience support those that wish to legalize anything that is called a sin within the Bible. You should not be able too if you vote your faith.
Yet time and again that is what happens and even more and more each year.
As a result, this nation is on decline, because those in power to not respect not only Christian values, but God Himself. Repeatedly we hear more and more of those wishing to replace Christian values with so-called values that actually discriminate against those that are Christian. Houston, TX is the most visible at this time, but many others are out there.
First and foremost, go vote. Then when you vote, vote for God.

President Obama in an interview with Al Sharpton – “These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me, and I tell them, I said, ‘You know what, you do what you need to do to win. I will be responsible for making sure our voters turn out.’ ” (The man who has lied to America has ordered the Democrats running for office to lie.)

Citizenship and Christianity

Mark 12: 17 And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marveled at him. (KJV)
Render to Ceasar the things that are Ceasar’s

Pay the taxes that the governments of man place upon you

Also obey the laws that are placed upon you by these same governments.

To me the one that I see most ignored is the last sentence I wrote above. True there are some laws that need to be challenged and changed like abortion for example. But I am referring mainly to the everyday laws of the land in which we live.
I find it amazing to watch someone pass me on the road as I go slightly above the speed limit. This means that they are flagrantly throwing the laws of the land in the face of God. What I find even more amazing is one time this happened I watched the car pull into church as services would be starting soon at this particular church. I just shook my head in amazement.

A law is per merriam-webster: a binding custom or practice of a community : a rule of conduct or action prescribed or formally recognized as binding or enforced by a controlling authority

We are to render which means to deliver, give, yield that which are the things of the government.

Here as in other words in both the Greek and Hebrew have multiple meanings. We must fully understand the means of the words so has to apply them how God wishes us to act.

Titus 3:1 Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work, (KJV)
be subject to the rule that is put forth upon us and to obey those who are an official entrusted with administration of the laws of the land.
Here we are instructed to follow the laws of the land.
Titus 3:9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. (KJV)
Strivings means to disagree or dispute in this case the laws of the land, and we are to avoid this. When we speed we are disagreeing with this law and disputing it to the point of disobedience. This is counter to the behavior we have been told by God through Jesus and His disciples to obey and follow.
So in essence we are not rebelling against the laws of the land but we are really rebelling against God as well as the teaching and sacrifice of Jesus Christ our Savior.

So we must remember that our faith and believes is not limited to a pew in a church on once or twice a week. It is to be a daily endeavor to strive more and more to be like Jesus was. Since in:
1 Corinthians 4:16 Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.
Followers in Greek actually mean be an imitator of Christ, which means to use or follow as a model. We are to act as Jesus did.
I found this excellent description in response to the question: “How did Jesus want people to act?” on the internet:
Jesus, himself, modeled the way we should act. He was gentle, forgiving, truthful, at times angry and blunt (when people were just being jerks). He wasn’t a doormat. When challenged about His teaching or acts, He always answered directly and without apology, because He knew His words and deeds were righteous…or right. There’s a key point, when we live upright lives, following His lead, we won’t have to be covering up or trying to make excuses for ourselves.
Of course, as humans, we WILL make mistakes, bad choices, and do things we know we shouldn’t have. When that happens, we are to ADMIT IT (not defend ourselves or make excuses), apologize, ask forgiveness (from God always, and others if they’ve been wronged), and make things right in those circumstances where that’s possible.
Also, Jesus never failed to give the credit, or glory, to God.
By snoogle31
So if we are to strive to be right and or righteous should we then not obey God by obeying average everyday laws that we take for granted?
Yes we should. So think about this tomorrow when you feel that you need to hurry and get to your destination. Me? I leave early and still go up to five miles an hour over the speed limit, and trust me I have been cursed and honked at more than once for not going faster.
Will I give in any further to the peer pressure? No. What I will do is say the Lord’s pray once again even if I have to say it one hundred times.
