Anarchy or King of Kings?

More nudges. It appears that most people do not understand the different forms of government ranging from complete control by the government (oligarchy) to no control (anarchy). What did our founding fathers intend? They wanted to get as close to anarchy as possible while allowing people to have freedom. This meant a very limited republic constrained by Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution. They understood that man is a flawed creation who must strive to be Christlike but will never be moral or virtuous enough to have unlimited freedom.

As the video above outlines, there is no difference between government labels where the people are controlled: there are only gradients between control and no control. If man was able to live without the need for the rule of man’s law as our Lord asks of us, we could live without government. Our Lord would be our King of kings. So where does that leave us? We literally have a majority of the people in our country who believe in big government that is not constrained by law or our Lord. We are begging for our “king” to take care of us so that we can be like other nations.

Did the Lord intend for his believers to be like other nations?Or did he intend for his people to be free and not subject to evil rulers? For those who believe that anarchy is the will of Satan, I respectfully disagree. If we achieved the state of righteousness as the Lord would have us achieve, there would be no need for man’s laws. Without the need for laws, we would not have the need for government. Can anyone say the same for the Word of God? Disparaging or misrepresenting the Word of God is the true work of Satan. Asking “What would Jesus do?” is the work of Satan. A believer in the Word of God would not have to ask that question: he would be able to repeat Jesus’s word in their proper context.

I wish that we were spiritually advanced enough to live without government under God’s natural laws. But as our founding fathers knew, we are still flawed beings who need some laws to keep us secure and free. However, the great experiment is no longer in practice in our country. We now live under a repressive dictatorship which would have us believe that we are free. The cost to regain our Liberty will be dear. As it should be so that we will cherish it once again. As for those who simper in the shadows pulling on our chains under the guise of social justice and big government: the consequences of your actions will not go unpunished.

Fortunately, Christian justice is not based on revenge. Isn’t it time that America woke up and stopped looking for a king?

Samuel 8

1 And it came to pass, when Samuel was old, that he made his sons judges over Israel.

2 Now the name of his firstborn was Joel; and the name of his second, Abiah: they were judges in Beersheba.

3 And his sons walked not in his ways, but turned aside after lucre, and took bribes, and perverted judgment.

4 Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah,

5 And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.

6 But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD.

7 And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.

8 According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee.

9 Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.

10 And Samuel told all the words of the LORD unto the people that asked of him a king.

11 And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots.

12 And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots.

13 And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers.

14 And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants.

15 And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants.

16 And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work.

17 He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants.

18 And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.

19 Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us;

20 That we also may be like all the nations; and that our king may judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles.

21 And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and he rehearsed them in the ears of the LORD.

22 And the LORD said to Samuel, Hearken unto their voice, and make them a king. And Samuel said unto the men of Israel, Go ye every man unto his city.

“…complete control by the government (oligarchy)…”

That’s not what oligarchy means.

An earthly life with no ToRah is biblical Anarchy.
No Commandments, No Rules, No Law. No responsibility, No accountability to our Maker.
This was HIS intent when we were given HIS Laws with The Feast of Shavuot/Harvest/Pentecost at Mt. Sinai. Because man forgets easily even though we were, and are reminded over and over, we forget HIM. That was the reason we had to stumble through the desert for 40 years after the Exodus from Egypt. Because we forget and He requires us to prove ourselves to HIM. We must also not confuse ourselves as gods who are excluded from this proving.
Man was created flawed from the beginning of Genesis. He had no ability to follow even a sole instruction given by our Lord, Yehovah.

That is why we require, and must follow HIS LAWS.
Because we forget. We forget who HE is to us. We are HIS, and not our own.

Imagine an earth without Torah Law.

Hear and Obey Him.
If we chose to hear and obey and follow His Laws, the victory will be HIS, for HIM, and what he then wants for us.

Evil has been evil since the genesis of man, and remains evil with us still.

Seems history is determined to repeat itself. God told Samuel; “They want a king give them one.” I forgot we already have one. http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/05/21/barack-obama-is-king-not-president/
I think sometimes God gives us what we want just to teach us a lesson.

Watcher correctly identifies man’s problem in that most men reject God’s law. They choose to live as anarchists, yet they have been duped by Satan into thinking that their hope lies in casting off the restraint of God’s law. Watcher is also correct in pointing to the Bible as the true source of understanding God’s law. It seems that many in the Patriot movement talk about God’s “natural law.” This teaching has been widely spread over the past 200 to 300 years by those who are most likely not of God, but yet see that there is a unseen law at work in HIS creation.

What is not mentioned is that the Old Testament combines the books of the Law with the books of the Prophets. And God has chosen to give us understanding of HIS plan through the Prophets. And the Prophets clearly tells of man’s attempt to liberate himself of God’s law. And we know that we are living in the “time of the Gentiles.” And we know that according to Daniel there are succesive kingdoms that grow out of one another. And we know that in the process of time, each kingdom grows further away from God’s law. And we know according to the Prophets that man will alway live under this earthly government. And we know that there will come a day when the Messiah destroys the kingdom of man. But until that time comes what hope do we have?

True liberty, according to the Holy Scriptures, is different than what the secular world hopes for. The liberty of Scripture speaks of the ability that God gives to man through His Holy Spirit to overcome the condemnation of God’s law. The Holy One of Israel enabled Abel the first Prophet to please God. And we see that Cain whose spiritual father is the devil, killed Abel. Abel, lost his earthly life, and exchanged it for a heavenly life. Cain chose this earthly life and remains even today under the bondage of Satan’s kingdom.

In the book of Genesis we see that both Cain and Abel were exposed to both good and evil. Abel chose to follow God and Cain chose to follow the devil. The only solution for the times in which we live today are the same that Cain and Abel experienced. True liberty and happiness is the by-product of seeking after God. Solomon, after all that he had done on earth, finally came to the conclusion that the chief aim of man is to do the will of God.
