Our government today has proven to be the source of lies, the protector of liars, and the enemy of those who speak the truth. It praises evil, persecutes good, and makes good people afraid.
Our President recently said the greatest threat to America is systemic racism, which does not exist. He said the second greatest threat was white supremacy that doesn’t exist with any power. Then he said global warming is the third greatest threat to America. However, global warming doesn’t exist either, and if it does, God is in control.[i] Everything our President said was a lie.
Why would the leader of America lie to the people? Our President’s false narrative is an attempt to implement an evil he could not accomplish by telling the truth.
When we look further into the ideology supporting our President, it has proven through history to be a draconian persuasion birthed in the spirit of the antichrist. Their morals are based on Lenin’s; the end justifies the means. Their creed is demanding Christians correct their errors of thinking by disregarding biblical truth and accept debauchery as normal. This is why they are sexualizing our children in schools, and teaching them to hate God and America. They sponsor violence through Black Lives Matter who seeks to destroy the nuclear family and brags they are Marxist.
Americans need to know, evil government is in finely designed spheres of seeking power and control by any means to gain dominance over humankind. This is why the secular leaders today from the top-down act arrogant and seem drunk with power. They fancy themselves as rulers and see patriots as irritants and inconveniences standing in the way of their agenda of creating chaos to generate reasons for more oppression. Their proven nature of selfish ambition, hatred, and sponsoring factions[ii] is paramount in their lives. They show no remorse because they have no concern for human life.
Today’s rulers illegally opened our borders causing disorder, enabling the drug cartel to flood America with drugs, not caring about the many thousands of Americans who will die of overdoses. They do not consider the thousands of innocent people crossing our borders who are raped, robbed, and brutalized. Many secular governors used the pandemic to implement martial law, (power, and control) by prioritizing abortion, alcohol, and marijuana while shutting down churches to oppress them into insignificance. Democrat leaders in major cities support anarchy in the streets while striving to defund law enforcement, and then let the rioters go free. Nationally they are focused on identity politics combined with critical (hate) theory in our military, government, schools, and colleges to divide us into racial and economic factions. They are now taking one of the final steps to overthrow and oppress America. The President’s administration is already joined with the majority of news outlets, and now with social media giants seeking to restrict and control our most cherished liberty, freedom of speech. This is to further their efforts to silence and dominate Americans.
Make no mistake, this tyrannical decadent ideology is by people who,
“…did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind so that they do what ought not to be done.”[iii]
Sadly many Christians today wrongly conclude God wants them to be subservient to an evil government. The truth is the anti-Christian political principalities and many apostate churches support Christians who naïvely think they cannot stand and speak against these political spheres of evil. This misunderstanding usually starts in Romans 13 where Apostle Paul defines a Godly Government. Carefully read below how the Apostle Paul through the Holy Spirit defined a government honoring God’s grand design! Note, the Apostle Paul was inspired to write Romans while he was in prison. He violated government more often than any person in the New Testament. When Paul went to preach the gospel he was thrown in jail, and ultimately was executed by the government he refused to obey.
The Apostle Paul defines Godly government in Romans 13:1-6.
“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.” 3 “For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. 4 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. 5 “Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake. 6 For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers (Servants) attending continually to this very thing.”
Verses 1&2 explain Godly government has to be from God – by God- of God.[iv] The role of a Godly government is to restrain evil. When it functions to restrain evil it is fulfilling God’s ordained purpose. Government is designed as a necessary restraint in a world of sinners. Verses 3&4 tell us a Godly government is not a threat to those who do good, but to those who do evil. Those who are doing evil should be afraid, not those who do good. In fact, it offers praise to those who do good and brings wrath to those who do evil. Verse 6 clarifies rulers as God’s ministers and is to be devoted to good service.
The Apostle Peter also defined God’s grand design for government in 1 Peter 2: 13-14.
“Therefore submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake, whether to the king as supreme, or to governors, as to those who are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and for the praise of those who do good.”
Here again, Peter advises us to submit to a Godly government for the Lord’s sake because rulers are sent to punish evildoers and praise those who do good.
When a government ceases to function as God designed, it becomes an evil government and yields its God-given authority. The same is true in the family where the father is designed by God to be the head. But when he leads in a destructive and evil way he will suffer and lose his right to exercise that God-given authority.
In America, Democrat rulers are designing the culture to protect the immoral, and have reached the point where they are protecting criminals. Criminals are not restrained, but the police are restrained for fear of being persecuted for stopping criminals. The Democrat Party has usurped God’s design by leading in a destructive and evil way, has forfeited its divine purpose, and now stands against God and America.
The way Christians stand against an evil government is involvement in the public square, our culture. We stand for righteousness knowing the light of Christ shines in darkness and darkness can never extinguish it.[v]
Two general examples of what to do: First, we have to wake up the sleeping Church! If your pastor is silent in the face of evil, bring together several members and speak in a benevolent and compassionate way making it known this is not acceptable! Educate them that all over the world especially in the east this evil ideology is persecuting and brutalizing Christians. American Christians today can no longer set back and sing praise songs and think this will not affect us. Christians in the east are being murdered, in Canada Churches are being burned and Christians are prosecuted for reading scripture in public. Evils goal is clear, and the present danger is the same in America as it is in the rest of the world, and there is not much time left to act.
Second, if your children are being taught something like critical race (hate) theory, or forced to wear masks take your children out of school. Organize a coalition of parents to do the same, and stand against this evil. Contact every elected official within your area, keep the pressure on, and refuse to back down.
American Christians, during this battle we have to accept the world, will hate us when we testify that its deeds are evil.[vi] But know, when we stand for righteousness, we are…
“Blessed when they revile and persecute us, and say all kinds of evil against us falsely for Christ’s sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven…”[vii]
Therefore, “have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.”[viii] “For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil…,”[ix] So we “Put on the whole armor of God, that we may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.”[x] Now pray “…that whenever we speak, words may be given so we will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel…”[xi]
May God bless us to stand for righteousness!
