America’s Ruler

Our Constitution places the power to govern the nation with what it calls, the state. The meaning of this word state, though, has changed. In the 19th century, it meant the people, the citizens themselves. Authorities such as mayors, governors, presidents, etc. were to be seen as hired servants of the state, the people! There are no rulers or ruling bodies that rule over the people in the governing law of this nation. This is the correct meaning of the word “state” in the Constitution. The word state is a reference to the whole population, all the voters, the citizens of the nation.

So, in America the people rule! This raises two questions:

  • What governs the people themselves?
  • What keeps the governing agency in place?

The only answer to both questions is that it is the reverence and fear of God. The people are governed by God’s Ten Commandments which they obey from their hearts.

Clearly, not all will obey God, so how is crime to be kept under control? The answer is that the people, themselves do it. When necessary, they may employ individuals they hire as sheriffs to manage a small number of incorrigible criminals.

This system breaks down when there are too many godless individuals. Sheriffs become policemen and magistrates are needed to judge the criminals. The situation worsens as the number of violators grows until we come to where we are today. We have several, huge governing bodies, federal, state and local, that preside over the people. Powerful government is necessary today because the people are no longer sufficiently self-governed by the Word of God.

The freedom that characterized America for centuries is disappearing today. The people, no longer governed by God, have permitted evil, greedy men to fill the vacuum. An extremely wealthy and powerful element is now attempting to overthrow the existing government and replace it with a socialist/communist regime under their control. The only possible remedy for this looming disaster is a return to government by God.

The question now is, when will sufficient true faith return so that a reversal of the current trend into slavery can begin? The answer is, only when the level of pain is sufficient to provoke a return to faith in, and obedience to, God.

The perpetrators of this attempted coup are moving slowly to prevent such a reaction. They have a loud voice in the media they control and have much power in the big cities. Whether or not it is sufficient to realize a successful overthrow remains to be seen.

God is permitting all this because His born-again people have lost all sense of their responsibility to teach the nations and make this world a Christian world:

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations… to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:  and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.   Amen.  (Matthew 28:19,20)

So many of God’s people (true believers!) have been misled to believe in an imminent rapture that makes impossible, and therefore relieves them of this clearly stated responsibility. But over a century has passed and still no rapture yet, no second coming! Isn’t it time for you to realize you’ve been lied to? Yes, lied to by your pastors and others, most of whom have themselves been deceived by Satan, the father of lies. It’s past time to reject the lie of His imminent return and to get busy with the work He assigned you. There is a world out there, just waiting to be won for Christ.
