DO YOU KNOW WHEN AND WHEN NOT TO SUBMIT TO GOVERNMENT?

Today we woke to the up to the sad truth that Democrats  have declared war. They are demanding unconditional surrender. No only from the church but from innocent citizens. Their war compels believers to look again at what the Bible says about evil laws and evil leaders.

Doesn’t the Bible tell us to obey them no matter what? Absolutely not. And it is shocking how many believers do not know their Bible or have been given false teaching. There is no verse in the Bible that tells you to obey evil government or laws.

If we don’t realize this now, we will sit back and let our nation be destroyed.

Christians during the American Revolution understood that the Bible does not teach us to obey evil laws or leaders. There would be no America if Christian Colonists believed they should obey the evil laws of England.

Let me prove to you beyond any doubt that the Bible tells us what we must do in the face of wicked government and laws.

First, I will expose a pathetic heresy that many believers commonly accept as truth. This is a widespread excuse for submitting when we should disobey.

Here is an example of someone who wrote me while under the influence of this false teaching:

“Out of curiosity, how do you justify your argument against obeying the government when you read Romans 13:1-7. The government Paul was talking about was even more oppressive than anything we can imagine. You could truly be martyred for your faith under the Roman government. And, what was Paul’s response? Did he call for governmental reform? Did he call for us to protest the government? Did he demand his rights and call on the government to recognize his rights? None of the above, he said, in the face of a brutal government, to obey. He didn’t say obey if your rights are recognized, he said obey. The church of today has to realize that the government is not our arena as Christians. Never, in the history of the church, has God used the government to bring about change.”

This man wrote me the definitive blurb on false submission. This defense of submission to evil government is riddled with error and falsehoods. Here are my responses to selected quotes:

1.You could truly be martyred for your faith under the Roman government.” First the writer tells us to obey evil laws, but then mentions martyrs. They never would have been martyred had they not broken the law by being Christians.

2. Then he asks, “Did (Paul) call for governmental reform? Did he call for us to protest the government? Did he demand his rights and call on the government to recognize his rights? None of the above…” The truth is, Paul did all of the above. “Paul said to them, “They have beaten us openly, uncondemned Romans, and have thrown us into prison. And now do they put us out secretly? No indeed! Let them come themselves and get us out” (Acts 16:37).

3. And finally, the zinger—the heresy that has sidelined the Body of Christ in the hour when we are most needed: “The church of today has to realize that the government is not our arena as Christians. Never, in the history of the church, has God used the government to bring about change.” Totally untrue. William Wilberforce was a Christian who used his faith in Jesus to abolish slavery in England. In fact, believers throughout history have created child labor laws, health regulations, and have exposed injustice, and corruption. It is safe to say that Christians are more responsible for influencing government, bringing about reform by forcing laws to be changed, and standing up for justice, than any other group in history.

So how did this writer get it so wrong? By doing what so many do. Isolating one set of verses, taking them out of context, and arriving at a conclusion that looks holy, but is in fact, pure and simple fear.

Let’s look at the verses that have been violated:

“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore, whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. Therefore, you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for the sake of conscience. For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor (Romans 13:1-7).

It seems to say that we are to honor government in every form, right? Wrong. To demonstrate what Paul is saying I offer this example. Say some parents leave the house, and leave the oldest child in charge. The child is given strict instructions not to open the door for anyone, except for a postal messenger whom they are expecting to deliver an important package that day.

The parents tell the child, “He will have blonde hair. He is wearing blue jeans and a white shirt. Don’t let anyone else in.” So later, a man with black hair, a blue shirt, and black slacks knocks on the door claiming to be the messenger with the package. Do they let him in? Of course not.

Lost in all the quoting of this verse on submission to government is the most important part: The description of the ruling authority. The Bible tells us what they are wearing! Look at the description:

1.They are not a terror to good works. Any government that terrorizes the innocent is not of God. How can you say that Hitler was God’s will for Germany? Hitler and other tyrants are in fact the ones being warned that there were God appointed governments who would destroy them: “But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.”  That is why the just powers of the world rose up and destroyed the Nazis.

2. They praise good works. Authorities that are endorsed by God do not hate or oppose Christian activity. They are the ones who—even if they are not Christian themselves—do not insult soul winning or fight the work of God. They are the cops, teachers, politicians who are glad that children are getting out of gangs and off of drugs.

3. You must be subject for the sake of conscience. When it becomes tricky, is when government is a mixture of right and wrong. Jesus said of the Pharisees, “Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, but do not do” (Matthew 23:3).

Do what they say, but don’t partake of their hypocrisy. Watch them for that moment when they cross the line and come between you and your God.  Just as our conscience should drive us to obey the law, we should also know when our conscience tells us not to obey an evil law.

Here’s when Peter reached that tipping point, speaking to those very same Pharisees: “So they called them and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered and said to them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:18-20).

And again, in Acts 5:29, “Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.””

God not only does not endorse evil government: He will have no part in it. “Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with You—they who frame and hide their unrighteous doings under [the sacred name of] law?” (Psalm 94:20). There is your answer. A corrupt throne (government) cannot be allied with God. He cannot have fellowship with it. 

When a government creates evil laws God cannot be allied it—because evil laws are the worst form of wickedness.

 They are damnable because they give legitimacy to evil.  Matthew Henry said, “Iniquity is daring enough even when human laws are against it, which often prove too weak to give an effectual check to it; but how insolent, how mischievous, is it when it is backed by a law! Iniquity is not the better, but much the worse, for being enacted by law; nor will it excuse those that practice it to say that they did but do as they were bidden.”

Notice how at the end, Henry says we can’t use the excuse that we were just obeying the law.  That is why Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”

The laws being created by Democrats, using the coronavirus as an excuse, are far worse than the virus itself because, unlike the virus, those new laws become permanent.  It is time for the church to wake up and take action, beginning with voting the evildoers out of office and quit calling our submission a godly thing, when it is just a cowardly thing.

“WHO WILL RISE UP FOR ME AGAINST THE EVILDOERS? WHO WILL STAND UP FOR ME AGAINST THE WORKERS OF INIQUITY?” (Psalm 94:16).

 

 

 
 






 

P.S. A message to those who support Mario Murillo’s mission to America.

John Wesley started 700 churches on three continents. One of his edicts to his young preachers was this: Always bring books for the people that will help them to grow.

We found a way to both do that and win souls. As you can imagine, a blog with this much traffic can sell advertising—something we refuse to do. What we do, is offer you materials that are chosen because they can make you armed and dangerous for Christ. The proceeds from the book and flash drive go to soul winning.

Some are offended that we offer books at all. We hope they will try to understand the two-fold blessing of offering this material. Thank you.

Our current special offer features our two most popular items: Treasury flash drive and Vessels of Fire and Glory together plus a free surprise gift from Mario Murillo Ministries.

PRAY FOR MODESTO!

SATAN ASKED HIS SENIOR DEVILS FOR A PLAN TO DESTROY AMERICA

The chief devils met with Satan in hell to devise the destruction of the United States. When did they meet? Well, it was some time ago, but not very long ago.

The question on all their leathery lips was, “How can we destroy America?”  After much squealing deliberation, one senior devil spoke up. “Remember, Abraham Lincoln said there was only one way that America could die.” Lincoln said, ‘If it ever reaches us, it must spring up amongst us; it cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.’

“So, you see,” the demon said, “if we want to kill America, we must get them to kill themselves.”

The Devil asked, “What do you recommend?”

Came the answer: “As I see it, there are three nation-killing forces that stand out in history. They, more than anything else, cause people to turn on themselves. They are Racism, Fascism, and Communism. However, we have a problem in America.”

“What is that?” asked Satan.

“Well,” replied the elder demon, “right now, America seems to be rejecting these notions. The young are attacking fascism. Communism is declining, because their President caused their economy to boom—especially among minorities—and this economic boom has damaged the economy and credibility of Communist countries.

“Worse yet, the death of a black man in police custody has awakened a movement against racism. It seems we have our work cut out for us, if we want these three killing-agents to keeping working in America.”

Satan asked, “How can we keep Racism, Fascism, and Communism alive in America?”

 A hush settled over hell, because there seemed to be no answer. Then the silence was broken by another devil—a lying spirit everyone knew. This same devil had once fooled King Ahab into going to war, and it led to Ahab’s death.  The story is found in 1 Kings 22:21-22, “Then a spirit came forward and stood before the Lord, and said, ‘I will persuade him.’ The Lord said to him, ‘In what way?’ So, he said, ‘I will go out and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.’”

“Can you do it?” Beelzebub asked the lying spirit.  “Of course, I can. I am the master at inciting mobs. Remember, I am also the one who moved the masses—some of whom were even healed by You-Know-Who—to turn against Him. They wanted to spare Him, but when I was through with them, they were yelling, ‘Crucify Him!’ And they wouldn’t stop, until Barabbas was released in His place.”

“I can twist minds until they become the very thing they say they are against,” he boasted.

“How will you do it?” they all asked.

“I will intensify hate until it blinds.  That blind rage will make anti-Fascists start using tactics that are uniquely Fascist. They will attack like Fascists. The will censor like Fascists. They will assault and destroy people in ways that would impress Hitler.  Under my spell, they will, all the while, believe themselves champions of equality, justice, and free speech.”

“I will do the same thing with Racism. I will bury the ideals of Marin Luther King. Remember his dangerous words? ‘I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.’ I will make them ignore character and only look at skin color.

“I will fool the victims of Racism into practicing a new kind of Racism. If hate isn’t enough, I will constantly insinuate that they are ‘victims’, until their definition of equality includes the destruction of another race.”

“What is the greatest threat to your plan?” Satan asked.

“Of course, it is our Supreme Enemy, Almighty God, working through His Church. We all know how they have disrupted our plans in the past. However, our campaign to get them to remain silent about politics and focus on inner blessings has kept them distracted and unprepared for the drastic change we will make in the American Culture. The only marginal threat is a remnant―those who keep warning them and declaring a ‘moral awakening.’

“But wait,” inquired an arch demon, “you’ve said nothing about Communism. How will you make a nation that has been so blessed with prosperity, seek to be totally controlled by government?”

“Well, I have given that one a lot of thought and realized I must create a national disaster. I must bring about the total halt of the economy by locking people down, killing their small businesses, churches, and their hope. I think, maybe, by a virus.”

Satan clapped his hands with glee, saying, “Yes, that will surely succeed! Those who call themselves Christians will be too weak and too cowardly to take a stand against all of your plans!”

Was he right?

SCRIPTURE DOES NOT TELL BELIEVERS TO OBEY EVIL LAWS

God not only does not endorse evil government: He will have no part in it. “Can a corrupt throne be allied with you—a throne that brings on misery by its decrees? The wicked band together against the righteous and condemn the innocent to death” (Psalm 94:20). There is your answer. A corrupt throne (government) cannot be allied with God.

The Amplified Bible (1974) puts it this way: “Can a throne of destruction be allied with You, one which frames and devises mischief by decree [under the sacred name of law]?”  How much clearer can it be than this?  It proves that laws can be evil and cannot be allied with God.

In fact, evil laws are the worst form of sin. They provide legitimacy to evil.  Matthew Henry said, “Iniquity is daring enough even when human laws are against it, which often prove too weak to give an effectual check to it; but how insolent, how mischievous, is it when it is backed by a law! Iniquity is not the better, but much the worse, for being enacted by law; nor will it excuse those that practice it to say that they did but do as they were bidden.”

Notice how at the end, Henry says we can’t use the excuse that we were just obeying the law.  That is why Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”

The laws being created by Democrats, using the coronavirus as an excuse, are far worse than the virus itself because, unlike the virus, those new laws become permanent.  It is time for the church to wake up and take action, beginning with voting the evildoers out of office and quit calling our submission a godly thing, when it is just a cowardly thing.

“WHO WILL RISE UP FOR ME AGAINST THE EVILDOERS? WHO WILL STAND UP FOR ME AGAINST THE WORKERS OF INIQUITY?” (Psalm 94:16).

 

 

WHEN SATAN ASKED HIS SENIOR DEVILS FOR A PLAN TO DESTROY AMERICA

The chief devils met with Satan in hell to devise the destruction of the United States. When did they meet? Well, it was some time ago, but not very long ago.

The question on all their leathery lips was, “How can we destroy America?”  After much squealing deliberation, one senior devil spoke up. “Remember, Abraham Lincoln said there was only one way that America could die.” Lincoln said, ‘If it ever reaches us, it must spring up amongst us; it cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.’

“So, you see,” the demon said, “if we want to kill America, we must get them to kill themselves.”

The Devil asked, “What do you recommend?”

Came the answer: “As I see it, there are three nation-killing forces that stand out in history. They, more than anything else, cause people to turn on themselves. They are Racism, Fascism, and Communism. However, we have a problem in America.”

“What is that?” asked Satan.

“Well,” replied the elder demon, “right now, America seems to be rejecting these notions. The young are attacking fascism. Communism is declining, because their President caused their economy to boom—especially among minorities—and this economic boom has damaged the economy and credibility of Communist countries.

“Worse yet, the death of a black man in police custody has awakened a movement against racism. It seems we have our work cut out for us, if we want these three killing-agents to keeping working in America.”

Satan asked, “How can we keep Racism, Fascism, and Communism alive in America?”

 A hush settled over hell, because there seemed to be no answer. Then the silence was broken by another devil—a lying spirit everyone knew. This same devil had once fooled King Ahab into going to war, and it led to Ahab’s death.  The story is found in 1 Kings 22:21-22, “Then a spirit came forward and stood before the Lord, and said, ‘I will persuade him.’ The Lord said to him, ‘In what way?’ So, he said, ‘I will go out and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.’”

“Can you do it?” Beelzebub asked the lying spirit.  “Of course, I can. I am the master at inciting mobs. Remember, I am also the one who moved the masses—some of whom were even healed by You-Know-Who—to turn against Him. They wanted to spare Him, but when I was through with them, they were yelling, ‘Crucify Him!’ And they wouldn’t stop, until Barabbas was released in His place.”

“I can twist minds until they become the very thing they say they are against,” he boasted.

“How will you do it?” they all asked.

“I will intensify hate until it blinds.  That blind rage will make anti-Fascists start using tactics that are uniquely Fascist. They will attack like Fascists. The will censor like Fascists. They will assault and destroy people in ways that would impress Hitler.  Under my spell, they will, all the while, believe themselves champions of equality, justice, and free speech.”

“I will do the same thing with Racism. I will bury the ideals of Marin Luther King. Remember his dangerous words? ‘I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.’ I will make them ignore character and only look at skin color.

“I will fool the victims of Racism into practicing a new kind of Racism. If hate isn’t enough, I will constantly insinuate that they are ‘victims’, until their definition of equality includes the destruction of another race.”

“What is the greatest threat to your plan?” Satan asked.

“Of course, it is our Supreme Enemy, Almighty God, working through His Church. We all know how they have disrupted our plans in the past. However, our campaign to get them to remain silent about politics and focus on inner blessings has kept them distracted and unprepared for the drastic change we will make in the American Culture. The only marginal threat is a remnant―those who keep warning them and declaring a ‘moral awakening.’

“But wait,” inquired an arch demon, “you’ve said nothing about Communism. How will you make a nation that has been so blessed with prosperity, seek to be totally controlled by government?”

“Well, I have given that one a lot of thought and realized I must create a national disaster. I must bring about the total halt of the economy by locking people down, killing their small businesses, churches, and their hope. I think, maybe, by a virus.”

Satan clapped his hands with glee, saying, “Yes, that will surely succeed! Those who call themselves Christians will be too weak and too cowardly to take a stand against all of your plans!”

Was he right?

THE RELIGIOUS DEVIL THAT HAS BEWITCHED MANY LUKEWARM CHRISTIAN LEADERS

How important is America’s destruction to Satan? So important that hell has dispatched a most powerful deceiver—a lying spirit, like that one mentioned in 1 Kings 22, in the mouths of those who should be preaching truth. This spirit deceives and takes the best intentions of preachers and twists them until they wake up supporting the very opposite of their first love. But first, here’s more of that fateful interview with Jim Caviezel on Fox: “We have this thing called ‘cancel-culture,’ and if Christians don’t watch it, it will be cancelling Christianity, as well. Because a lot of pastors, our bishops, our priests, they are laying right over. They are letting their churches be burned. How do we know that? Well, it’s right there on the news. Statues are being ripped down. They don’t say anything. And I watched a movie that Mel Gibson did – Braveheart – when you have the English who are the bad guys, against the Scots, but the real bad guys were the guys that were collaborating. That’s why we’re in this situation right now. We can’t go to churches, we can’t go into our church. Why? Because they could get contaminated, right? So, why are we on airplanes? I have friends who have committed suicide. I have SEAL buddies who have lost seven of their friends by suicide. And would it have helped to have been able to get into a church, especially during this time? Absolutely! And is it good for mental illness? Yes, it is. And, so, the collaborators in our faith, this is where the persecution starts. You’ve got guys inside your faith that won’t stand up to the governors, they will not stand up to the mayors. And that’s why the Gospel is very much alive right now, okay? I got to play Jesus. Some of us love Peter, or Paul. But there are many of us now that are flat-out Judases. Or they’re Pontius Pilates. Or they’re the Pharisees. And it’s a bloody shame if you can’t tell the difference between a priest, a bishop, or a politician. It’s really sad. But this is called ‘lukewarmness.’ And Christ has a very special place for them, and they know it.” Addiction, suicide, domestic violence and despair have all spiked because churches are closed. And yet, tens of thousands of Christian leaders not only keep their churches closed—many of them even attack their brethren who dare to open—and act like cheerleaders for the state. -Democrats and the Left openly talk about atheism, devil worship, pedophilia, and getting Christians fired, and yet a majority of leaders see no reason to resist the Democrat agenda. -One of the leading pastors in our nation tells us there’s little difference between voting Democrat or Republican, and God doesn’t really care. -A well-known worship leader sounding as foggy as a concert fog machine said, “Ruth Bader Ginsburg,” (the most radical abortionist ever to sit on the Supreme Court, was, according to this worship leader, and I quote), “probably pro-life in her own way.”A bizarre silence on abortion. A massive number of Christian leaders staunchly refuse to talk about late term abortion—or about killing a baby that survives abortion. Their silence is sociopathic.  They talk about how Republicans don’t care about the poor (a lie) or immigrants (another lie) but never answer the question about the most vile and unforgiveable butchery.  -They throw their brothers and sisters under the bus. John MacArthur takes a stand for the religious freedom guaranteed in the Constitution, but only a handful out of the thousands of churches in Los Angeles stand with him. Jim was right when he said, “And it’s a bloody shame if you can’t tell the difference between a priest, a bishop, or a politician. It’s really sad. But this is called ‘lukewarmness.’ And Christ has a very special place for them, and they know it.” How can Christian leaders act this way when the evil of the Left is so clear, and our God mandated duty to stop it is commanded by scripture?  The answer is demonic power. A smothering, dulling blanket of deception has settled on them. Their compromise is getting outside help from a religious spirit from the pit of hell. One of the first clear appearances of this religious devil was when the roaring challenge from Goliath froze the entire army of Israel. A mass paralysis of fear and confusion kept them from rising up. The demonic haze that settled on their minds made them put off doing their duty—it made them cowardly that Goliath was blaspheming God! Another example of this paralysis occurred during the American Revolutionary War. Despite the brutality and tyranny of the British, only 30% of the colonists supported the war for freedom. It was only after Thomas Paine wrote a series of pamphlets between 1775 and 1776 advocating that the Thirteen Colonies declare their independence from Great Britain, that support began to grow. Writing in clear and persuasive prose, Paine marshaled moral and political arguments to encourage common people in the Colonies to fight for their freedom. Common sense is what should be driving thousands of Christian leaders to fight the cancel-culture that is designed to shutdown freedom of worship, and will ultimately drive the American church underground. Do you still doubt the demonic intentions of the Democrat Party? Listen to this Democrat attorney: “I am a 40-something attorney and mother who lives in a quiet neighborhood with a yard and a garage full of scooters and soccer balls. I am not the type of person who would normally consider becoming a Satanist, but these are not normal times. When Justice Ginsburg died, I knew immediately that action was needed on a scale we have not seen before. And, so, I have turned to Satanism.”  Paul asked a question in Galatians 3:1 that needs to be levelled at lukewarm church leaders, “who has bewitched you?!” How can you not see the common sense of opening churches, standing with Donald Trump, and opposing the demonic intentions of the Democrat Party?  Maybe the reason is to be found in the spell that the supernatural powers of hell have cast over this nation. That is why the solution must be supernatural as well—a massive repentance by church leaders, voter turnout, a powerful awakening, and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit are the only hope for America! And the way to break this demon’s power.
This is a message to those who support Mario Murillo’s message to America and his soul winning ministry.

THE BIBLE DOES NOT TELL YOU TO OBEY EVIL LAWS

It’s time  to wake up to the sad truth that Democrat Mayors and Governors have declared war. No only on the church but on innocent citizens. This war compels believers to look again at what the Bible says about evil laws and evil leaders.

Democrats, after using the “Pandemic” as an excuse to illegally lockdown the church, have graduated to condoning riots, looting, and now murder in the name of racial justice. At first, I thought they were testing to see how the public reacts. This no longer explains it. Biden’s poll numbers are dropping because Democrat leaders refuse to take action against the domestic terrorism of Black Lives Matter and Antifa. What we have now is a simple case of stubborn madness.

Doesn’t the Bible tell us to obey them no matter what? Absolutely not. And it is shocking how many believers do not know their Bible or have been given false teaching.There is no verse in the Bible that tells you to obey evil government or laws. And again, if we don’t realize that now, before we sit back and let our nation be destroyed.

Christians during the American Revolution understood that the Bible does not teach us to obey evil laws or leaders. There would be no America if Christian Colonists believed they should obey the evil laws of England.

Let me prove to you beyond any doubt that the Bible tells us what we must do in the face of wicked government and laws.

First, I will expose a pathetic heresy that many believers commonly accept as truth. This is a widespread excuse for submitting when we should disobey.

Here is an example of someone who wrote me while under the influence of this false teaching:

“Out of curiosity, how do you justify your argument against obeying the government when you read Romans 13:1-7. The government Paul was talking about was even more oppressive than anything we can imagine. You could truly be martyred for your faith under the Roman government. And, what was Paul’s response? Did he call for governmental reform? Did he call for us to protest the government? Did he demand his rights and call on the government to recognize his rights? None of the above, he said, in the face of a brutal government, to obey. He didn’t say obey if your rights are recognized, he said obey. The church of today has to realize that the government is not our arena as Christians. Never, in the history of the church, has God used the government to bring about change.”

This defense of submission to evil government is riddled with error and falsehoods. Here are my responses to selected quotes:

1.You could truly be martyred for your faith under the Roman government.” First the writer tells us to obey evil laws, but then mentions martyrs. They never would have been martyred had they not broken the law by being Christians.

2. Then he asks, “Did (Paul) call for governmental reform? Did he call for us to protest the government? Did he demand his rights and call on the government to recognize his rights? None of the above…” The truth is, Paul did all of the above. “Paul said to them, “They have beaten us openly, uncondemned Romans, and have thrown us into prison. And now do they put us out secretly? No indeed! Let them come themselves and get us out” (Acts 16:37).

3. And finally, the zinger—the heresy that has sidelined the Body of Christ in the hour when we are most needed: “The church of today has to realize that the government is not our arena as Christians. Never, in the history of the church, has God used the government to bring about change.” Totally untrue. William Wilberforce was a Christian who used his faith in Jesus to abolish slavery in England. In fact, believers throughout history have created child labor laws, health regulations, and have exposed injustice, and corruption. It is safe to say that Christians are more responsible for influencing government, bringing about reform by forcing laws to be changed, and standing up for justice, than any other group in history.

So how did this writer get it so wrong? By doing what so many do. Isolating one set of verses, taking them out of context, and arriving at a conclusion that looks holy, but is in fact, pure and simple fear.

Let’s look at the verses that have been violated:

“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore, whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. Therefore, you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for the sake of conscience. For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor (Romans 13:1-7).

It seems to say that we are to honor government in every form, right? Wrong. To demonstrate what Paul is saying I offer this example. Say some parents leave the house, and leave the oldest child in charge. The child is given strict instructions not to open the door for anyone, except for a postal messenger whom they are expecting to deliver an important package that day.

The parents tell the child, “He will have blonde hair. He is wearing blue jeans and a white shirt. Don’t let anyone else in.” So later, a man with black hair, a blue shirt, and black slacks knocks on the door claiming to be the messenger with the package. Do they let him in? Of course not.

Lost in all the quoting of this verse on submission to government is the most important part: The description of the ruling authority. The Bible tells us what they are wearing! Look at the description:

1.They are not a terror to good works. Any government that terrorizes the innocent is not of God. How can you say that Hitler was God’s will for Germany? Hitler and other tyrants are in fact the ones being warned that there were God appointed governments who would destroy them: “But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.”  That is why the just powers of the world rose up and destroyed the Nazis.

2. They praise good works. Authorities that are endorsed by God do not hate or oppose Christian activity. They are the ones who—even if they are not Christian themselves—do not insult soul winning or fight the work of God. They are the cops, teachers, politicians who are glad that children are getting out of gangs and off of drugs.

3. You must be subject for the sake of conscience. When it becomes tricky, is when government is a mixture of right and wrong. Jesus said of the Pharisees, “Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, but do not do” (Matthew 23:3).

Do what they say, but don’t partake of their hypocrisy. Watch them for that moment when they cross the line and come between you and your God.  Just as our conscience should drive us to obey the law, we should also know when our conscience tells us not to obey an evil law.

Here’s when Peter reached that tipping point, speaking to those very same Pharisees: “So they called them and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered and said to them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:18-20).

And again, in Acts 5:29, “Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.””

God not only does not endorse evil government: He will have no part in it. “Can a corrupt throne be allied with you—a throne that brings on misery by its decrees? The wicked band together against the righteous and condemn the innocent to death” (Psalm 94:20). There is your answer. A corrupt throne (government) cannot be allied with God.

The Amplified Bible (1974) puts it this way: “Can a throne of destruction be allied with You, one which frames and devises mischief by decree [under the sacred name of law]?”  How much clearer can it be than this?  It proves that laws can be evil and cannot be allied with God.

In fact, evil laws are the worst form of sin. They provide legitimacy to evil.  Matthew Henry said, “Iniquity is daring enough even when human laws are against it, which often prove too weak to give an effectual check to it; but how insolent, how mischievous, is it when it is backed by a law! Iniquity is not the better, but much the worse, for being enacted by law; nor will it excuse those that practice it to say that they did but do as they were bidden.”

Notice how at the end, Henry says we can’t use the excuse that we were just obeying the law.  That is why Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”

The laws being created by Democrats, using the coronavirus as an excuse, are far worse than the virus itself because, unlike the virus, those new laws become permanent.  It is time for the church to wake up and take action, beginning with voting the evildoers out of office and quit calling our submission a godly thing, when it is just a cowardly thing.

“WHO WILL RISE UP FOR ME AGAINST THE EVILDOERS? WHO WILL STAND UP FOR ME AGAINST THE WORKERS OF INIQUITY?” (Psalm 94:16).

 

 

ALL THE MORE REASON

Black Lives Matter is a Marxist domestic terrorist organization. That fact was reinforced yet again when roving mobs were confronting diners at restaurants, demanding that they agreed to chant either “Black lives matter” or “White silence is violence.” The video below will show you how vile these protestors are.

The proof of their Marxist terrorism is reinforced daily with acts of violence, rioting and arson. BLM has zero to do with racial justice. Marxism wants chaos not justice. BLM has no interest in improving the lives of black people. They are only interested in destroying our American way of life.

But on this new level, BLM is using a classic Marxist language weapon. Pick a phrase. Make sure it is something that everyone should agree on like “water is wet.” Then turn it into a test of decency, forcing people say those phrases and threatening to destroy them if they refuse.

Now, I want to speak directly to you who lead BLM: I will not say your phrase! Never! Listen to the voice of true Americans!  “When you told me I am a racist if I don’t say it—when you tried to get me fired—when you paid millions to bail out rioters who burned down my family business, but not a dime to us, its owners—when you threatened my child for not saying it—when you didn’t care about the people I love who were murdered, I refused to say it. But most of all I refused to say it when I stood before the graves of soldiers who died defending both your right to say it, and my right not to say it.”

I will never say your phrase. Because, behind the scenes of your movement there are villains building a new form of racism. They lust for power, not equality. And you, young ‘social justice warrior,’ you need to wake up! All you have to do to know what this is really all about, is follow the money.

Take a hard look at the Democrat Party and its shameful history, if you want to see true systemic racism in action. Who started the Klu Klux Klan? Who defended slavery? Who destroyed the inner city? And who continues to divert billions of dollars that were meant for you, into their corrupt government bureaus? Who created policies that guaranteed a lifetime of dependency on them? Do you know Margaret Sanger’s real reason for starting Planned Parenthood? Here it is, in her own words:

“Minorities crammed into impoverished areas in inner cities should not be having so many babies. And, of course, these minorities (including most of America’s immigrants) are inferior in the human race, as are the physically and mentally handicapped. We should require mandatory sterilizations of those less desirable and promote easy access to abortion. And since sex should be a free-for-all, we must provide birth control and abortions to teenagers too. It’s all for the greater good and for a more intelligent, liberated, healthier population.” https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/apr/23/margaret-sanger-founded-planned-parenthood-on-raci/

Here is what John Nolte wrote in an article entitled Overwhelming Evidence Exposes Democrat Party’s Ongoing Systemic Racism: “The vast majority of violence visited on the black community is committed by black people. There are virtually no marches for these invisible victims, no public silences, no heartfelt letters from the UC regents, deans, and departmental heads. The message is clear: Black lives only matter when whites take them. Black violence is expected and insoluble, while white violence requires explanation and demands solution. Please look into your hearts and see how monstrously bigoted this formulation truly is.”

In the last 3 years, 16 killings of black Americans by police in the U.S. became the most controversial incidents. Out of those 16, 14 took place in communities where the police are controlled by Democrats.

The phrase you demand that I say, was ripped from those who may have meant well. But it has been hijacked, perverted, and made into weaponized property.

 

And further, Black Lives Matter, under the current leadership has morphed into a Marxist, terrorist, anti-Christ group. The leadership openly boast of their “spiritual” roots in African witchcraft.

And just three days ago, in Charlotte, NC, BLM members were guilty of such blasphemy, that it is beyond belief. They marched down the street chanting, “F*** your Jesus!”

I will not be complicit in your fraudulent revolution, nor in your criminal destruction of our freedom. I will never say your phrase! Once more, I ask, “Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? Who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?” (Psalm 94:16)
