Jesus Is Coming
And
Everybody Wants To Rule The World

Why are so many American Christians displeased about how President Obama governs their country? Why do American Christians pride themselves in believing that United States is the greatest powerful nation ever? Why do Americans want to do anything and everything to save their county including their charter of rights? Is it really the greatest and the most powerful nation ever? If it is, to whose standard? Surely, it is not according to God standard. God revealed to king Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel 2:37 "that he was the king of kings." God of heaven has given kingship, power, might, and glory to him! God has delivered into his care human beings, wild creatures, and birds in the sky—wherever they live—and has made him ruler of all of them. He was the gold head, (his empire). God revealed to him that all other kingdoms that arise after him would be inferior to his.

Head of Gold
What made king Nebuchadnezzar so different from all other kings and rulers who succeeded him?  He was accountable to no one except God. 

"O king, the Most High God gave Nebuchadnezzar your father a kingdom and majesty, glory and honor.  And because of the majesty that He (God) gave him, all peoples, nations, and languages trembled and feared before him. Whomever he wished, he executed; whomever he wished, he kept alive; whomever he wished, he set up; and whomever he wished, he put down," Daniel 5:18-19.

All others rulers and man of states that followed were accountable to a constitution or a charter of some kind. Remember king Darius of chapter 6 in the book of Daniel; the written law that he decreed caused Daniel to be thrown into the lion's den.  King Darius was unable to recede. As of today, all rulers are accountable to an institution or an establishment.  We have seen a good example of this lately in Egypt, as President Muhammad Morsi ousted by the military. The President of United States of America is of no exception, God will see to that, as He did with President Richard Nixon. Take notice Christians, if you believe that you can make a difference by being an activist to force change in the political rulers in your country, you are out of your jurisdiction.  Pay attention to what God teaches you[1]

"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," Romans 13:1

"Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to obey, to be ready for every good work," Titus 3:1

Why? "Because authorities and powers having been made subject to Jesus," 1 Peter 3:22, and "you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power," Colossians 2:10.

If these verses did not convince you, maybe this complete teaching from Paul will:

"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 conscience' sake.  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.

Americans, is God in business to save your country? Or is He is business to save souls and to fulfill His prophetic agenda using all gentile nations, and especially the non-gentile nation of Israel.

United States of America is a republic. In a republic, the executive legitimized by both a constitution and by popular suffrage.[2] Suffrage mean: the right to vote gained through the democratic process.  



Whether nations are a republic, a monarch, or govern by a dictator God's will prevail:
"The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing;He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect," Psalm 33:10.

Democracy is not the best system of government, why? People are to respect the will of the majorities. In a Republic, all individual have rights and that by itself will cause conflict.  In many countries, democracy doesn't work because the minority are not willing to submit to the majority therefore will rebel and causes civil war. 

The nation is blessed when majorities of individuals live according to God's standard. The problem arises when the majorities want live to their standard, and that is what the movies and marketing industries are promoting: "Live your life". Everybody wants to rule the world according to his or her standard.  They all want their rights and the constitution of America guarantee just that. 

Did you ever consider that God might appoint dictators to rule over people because they are difficult people to govern?  Here is an example in Isaiah 19:2-4.  

"I will stir up Egyptian against Egyptian—brother will fight against brother, neighbor against neighbor, city against city, kingdom against kingdom.  The Egyptians will lose heart, and I will bring their plans to nothing; they will consult the idols and the spirits of the dead, the mediums and the spiritists. I will hand the Egyptians over to the power of a cruel master, and a fierce king will rule over them," declares the Lord, the Lord Almighty."

Does this describe the condition in most countries, secular against secular, since they all desire to be free to live up to their own personal standard?  This is a fact: as people get further away from God's law, more civil laws are implemented.  Please do not blame your fellow Christians for the sad state of your country... people make their own choices.  Separation of Church and State is God's will.  Individuals must have free choice. 

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, The people He has chosen as His own inheritance" Psalm 33:12.

Observation from Jack Kelley on the state of America:

"Americans don't live by God's laws, we don't teach our children about Him in our schools, we don't offer public prayers in His name, and the holy days we observe are no longer tributes to Him. We don't thank Him for the blessings we receive and we don't turn to Him when we're in need.[3]


It is people choice to be a Christian. Christianity starts in the heart and at home. The secular are right, you cannot force your religion down their throat.



Self-centredness is also a choice in the Freedom of Right.  Consequently, people neglect the care of the widows, the orphans, the sick and the destitute.  In the Western nations, the government stepped in with socialist program to take care of those in need.  The consequence is the taxes increase. Health care for example is not necessary a sign that the heart of man draws cool and indifferent by leaving their responsibilities to the government if you agree to pay taxes to ensure that all citizens may have access to hospital care. Read Isaiah 58 and see what God thought of Israel who neglected the weak one of their society.  Most secular American don't want to pay taxes for the care of the needy, that is a sign that the heart of man draws cool and indifferent. Candidates run their political campaign on promises of no tax increase.  By not paying the fair share of the taxes, Americans are actually stealing from the public treasures. 



The danger in allowing government caring for human needs such as social assistance programs encourage some to become more and more dependent on the government as a way of life.  The economics suffer, unemployed increases, therefore more end up depending on the government. People favoured leaders that will not take those services away.

Professor Alexander Fraser Tytler,[4] nearly two centuries ago, while the thirteen original states were still colonies of Great Britain wrote: 

"Democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government.  It can only exist until the voters discover they can vote themselves largesse out of the public treasure.  From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefit from the public treasury, with the result that democracy always collapses over a loose fiscal policy, always to be followed by a dictatorship, and then a monarchy."

With freedom to live according to individual standard, the heart ever draws colder and iniquity increases.[5]There is no fear of God, therefore sins are viewed good.  The Freedom of Right in the American constitution gives the freedom to sin freely and in abundance.[6]

With time, the government increases control over all aspect of the society. It is done so to the point where God appoints a cruel man who will enforce His will over them.  Have you not notice that President Obama is systematically removing their freedom in the name of Homeland Security?  

God rules over ungodly people and its leaders. King Nebuchadnezzar learned this lesson in a very humble way as illustrated in Daniel Chapter 4. This is how King Nebuchadnezzar describes God sovereignty at the end of his lesson:

"And at the end of the time I, Nebuchadnezzar, lifted my eyes to heaven, and my understanding returned to me; and I blessed the Most High and praised and honored Him who lives forever:

For His dominion is an everlasting dominion,
And His kingdom is from generation to generation.
All the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing;
He does according to His will in the army of heaven
And among the inhabitants of the earth.
No one can restrain His hand
Or say to Him, "What have You done?" Daniel 4:34-35

King Nebuchadnezzar realized and admitted that the God of Israel is ruler over the kings of the earth, Rev 1:5.

Even Napoleon Bonaparte realized the ruling Divinity of Jesus as God

"Alexander, Cæsar, Charlemagne, and myself founded empires. But on what did we rest the creations of our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ alone founded his empire upon love; and, at this hour, millions of men would die for him."[7]

God has a plan for the gentile nations. He shared His plan with Daniel and many other prophets. Therefore, Christians, let Him deal with the politic of the country of your sojourn and proceed to do what He commands us to do:

"that you also aspire to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you," 1 Thessalonians 4:11

"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you," Matthew 6:33.

"be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear," 1 Peter 3:15b

Our Blessed Hope

Christ resurrected is the gospel. Our resurrection is our hope. To receive the resurrection of an incorruptible body for eternity is easy. Believe that Jesus is Christ, the Son of God, who paid for our sins. We must repent, which is admitting that we are sinners and ask Jesus to save us. Moreover, we must confess from our mouth that Jesus is Lord.

If you are a government employee, follow the example of Daniel by doing your job implementing the law of the land.  In addition, follow the example of Daniel's three friends; take the heat when the law of the land is in conflict with God's law.  Remember, you are the lamp stand; it is not to you to force seculars to shine as well.

"Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world," Philippians 2:14-15.

Are we to spend our time, energy and financial resources to protect our Christians rights?  Are we t0 spend our time, energy and financial resources at pointing at our nation sins? Are we not to be a light in our nations by living according to God's word?  Making disciple is what Christians are to do. Please take the time to review this video before going any further. http://youtu.be/BCChQht6eIg [8]

Our business is not to lobby our government, to initiate marching protest, or to dispute in court against the right of sinners to sin ever more. We live in a society who is as much Romans as it was in the first century BC.  


Abortion is murder, yet it is a choice for Christians to keep away from, Proverbs 13:14 and Proverbs 18:21.  Homosexuality is a choice, a sinful lifestyle that God allow, Romans 1:24: "Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonour their bodies among themselves," and read the rest.  It is peoples choice to choose.

Our business is to remind each other the ways in Christ, 1 Corinthians 4:17, Galatians 6:6, 2 Timothy 2:2, 1 John 2:27.  Our business is to be inasmuch a prophet as were the Old Testament prophets.  We testify God's word to the official of your government and walk away... "shake off the dust from your feet," Matthew 10:14.

In 2005, I wrote a letter to Right Hon. Prime Minister Paul Martin. A law to legalize same-sex marriage was about to be presented in the House Of Common. Free vote was given to each members of parliament. The Liberal was in minority but combine with the New Democratic Party votes it was guaranteed that same-sex marriage would became legal in Canada. I warned that him alone would be accountable to God for legalizing same-sex marriage.

Same-sex marriage was endorsed; consequently, the Liberal party was defeated on the next election. Only eight representatives of the party were elected in the last Federal election. 

Homosexual have right to marry in Canada, the population of Canada has not been held responsible and accountable for it. The members of the Conservative Party voted against same-sex marriage and are in power now. Was that the result of the letter I wrote?   Only God knows.  Jesus Our Lord and King rule in Canada.  If you are interested to receive a copy of the letter, please email me at simplicityinthegospel@gmail.com.

American Christians do the same.  Testify and walk away.  Follow the example of Nathan the prophet sent to King David. Let Jesus reign.

50 Years Later
United States of America has been in decline ever since the U.S. Supreme Court finds religious instruction in public schools a violation of the establishment clause and therefore unconstitutional.[9]

  



The Court is not at fault but the American parents are by not teaching God's word to their children.  On the other hand, are Christians caught up in the care of this world, the care of their nation statue?  Ask yourself this question and keep the answer to yourself:  How many souls have you reached out to and how many have received salvation as the result?  For my part, I can answer "Not enough".



American Eagle Background Free
Recently in the news, over a threat, the U.S. Embassies closed across Middle East, the U.S. State Department has ordered closed 19 diplomatic posts. The mighty eagle has been transformed into a finch where an insignificant noise startles it.



As it was for Israel, so it will be for all nations that disobey God, including The United States of America:

"And it shall be, that just as the Lord rejoiced over you to do you good and multiply you, so the Lord will rejoice over you to destroy you and bring you to nothing; and you shall be plucked from off the land which you go to possess," Deuteronomy 28:63.

In Conclusion

Jesus said:

" Did you not know that I must be about My Father's business?"" Luke 2:49


"But Jesus answered them, "My Father has been working until now, and I have been working," John 5:17.


God is very specific. He is telling you, "HANDS OFF, MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS, LET HIM RULE THE WORLD, YOUR NATION, AND ESPECIALLY OVER YOUR LEADERS".

MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN

The writing is on the wall warning all the nations of the earth.

Let us pray... "Thy Kingdom Come, Amen".
