I have not written a post for a while, because the events of this point in time are annoying me.
I hear this phrase ‘This great nation’ all of the time, especially now, before an election. But what does God say about this nation?
(Isa 40:17 NIV) “Before him all the nations are as nothing; they are regarded by him as worthless and less than nothing.”
I seem to have a problem with everyone around me. I have determined to believe God and that, quite often, requires that I do not believe man. This is one such example. God says all nations are less than nothing and man says ‘This great nation’! It does not matter to me if the whole world says this is a great nation, I am going to believe my Heavenly Father: it is “less” than nothing.
As I consider Scripture and what God says about this nation, I see that it was formed in rebellion to Him. Those around me say the Founding Fathers were heroes and gave up all that they had so that this nation could be formed, but look what God says about it.
Romans 13:1&2 (NIV) “Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.”
The King of the Colonies was also the King of England. If one believes God, then God established him as that authority. The Founding Fathers rebelled against the king that God established and they lost everything that they had because they did so. If one believes God it is plain that, in His eyes, the Founding Fathers are zeros, not heroes.
The Founding Fathers would not pay any taxes to England, but God says pay your taxes. Romans 13:7 (NIV) “Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.” The Founding Fathers owed taxes to England and disobeyed God by not paying them.
The Founding Fathers went beyond rebellion and disobedience and created a system to attempt to remove God from the process of establishing the authorities!
It seems as though everyone around me believes that we vote someone into office! God says that He establishes the authorities and yet those around me say we establish the authorities! Someone is wrong and I am going to believe God, not man.
This is a great example of the blind leading the blind! If God said man should choose the authorities I must have missed it. Can someone point that verse out?
Then I have to ask myself, “If I prayed, would God give us a great president?” But then I have to ask myself “Why would He?” If we error by not believing God and try to do it our way, then why would He reward us? Isn’t it about like a bank robber asking God which bank to rob?
I was physically born in the United States, but later I was spiritually born in the Nation of God. I died to this world and everything in it. I am still here, but now I serve as an ambassador to this world. A proper ambassador would not meddle in the affairs of the country that they are assigned to and I strive to be a proper ambassador, so do not think that I am trying to influence you in any way.
I will not vote and I recently had a brother ask me “If everyone did as you do, how long would this country last?” and I must say that it will last as long as God wants it too. The only difference it makes to me is whether or not I believe my Father.
I am not a prophet, nor the son of a prophet, but I feel like one. Everyone around the prophets in the Old Testament said they were wrong, but they believed God and God credits belief as righteousness.
I believe God.
