“Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil…, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.” -Jude 1:9
This last week, I had some leaders over to my place discussing some serious issues that need to be lawfully dealt with in our great state of Minnesota. As I was talking and getting to know these guys that I just may be laboring among (1 Thessalonians 5:12), a comment in the affirmative about the current administration came up in which I knew was not true.
I, in turn, had shared several things stating that what is being said from the presidential pulpit and even the mainstream media are two completely different stories when it comes to the fruit that he bears (Matthew 7:16).
In other words, what the President says and what he does are two different stories. One is the truth, the other is a lie. There is no ying and yang found in Scripture (Amos 3:3).
With that said, one of these gentlemen obviously became angry with me for telling him what it was that he apparently did not want to hear.
He asked me, “Do you pray for the President?”
I asked him, “Did you pray for Barack Hussein Obama? Silence? No, because you know that he is a devil and he must be resisted and charged for his crimes against We the People (Article 2 section 4, Article 1 section 3 clause 7 US Constitution).
Everyone in their silence seemed to agree.
I continued, “Did you pray for Hilary Clinton?” “Of course, you did not, and if you did you prayed that she was brought to justice, which guards our liberties (Isaiah 51:4).
Everyone in their silence seemed to agree.
How willful men are in attempting to defend the indefensible when it comes to their favorite politicians (Daniel 3:6). I see it all of the time.
I then asked him , “Did John the Baptist pray for the corrupt Herod, or did he call him out for all of his evils? Let’s stick to Scripture here, there we will always safe.”
“But Herod the tetrarch, being reproved by him for Herodias his brother Philip’s wife, and for all the evils which Herod had done..” -Luke 3:19
Now, don’t get me wrong, scripture is clear that we are to pray for the kings-Presidents.
1 Timothy 1:5 tells us: “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.”
In America, Article 6, Section 2 of the US Constitution is law under the King, and that being The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Exodus 18:25).
- Those in delegated authority we call “representatives” of the people, we are not serfs or vassals (Taking care of their Lord’s estate).
- Representatives are those that have derived their just powers from the consent of the Governed “We the People.” -The Declaration of Independence
- “A quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty” is found under God’s rule in Christ (Romans 3:31)
“Resistance to tyranny becomes the Christian and social duty of each individual. Continue steadfast and, with a proper sense of your dependence on God, nobly defend those rights which heaven gave, and no man ought to take from us.” – John Hancock, Provincial Congress, Resolution to Massachusetts Bay, October 1774
Furthermore, when you go to scripture, how did the patriarchs pray for tyrants? They didn’t, they resisted them in obedience to God (Romans 12:20), throwing them off as a testimony against them.
“And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.” -Matthew 10:18
How did Moses pray for the King?
“And the Lord spake unto Moses, Go unto Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord, Let my people go, that they may serve me.” -Exodus 8:1
How did Elijah pray for the king? He took him to Carmel where the Lord proved to all who was and who is the Lord (1 Kings 18).
How did Gideon pray for the Kings? He conquered them by overthrowing their tyrannies (Judges 6:14).
How did Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego pray for the King? They resisted and did not bow (Daniel 3).
Look to our forefathers (Hebrews 13:7).
They had a “firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence.”
To further solidify the point, in 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, the same committee that was assigned to draft the text of the Declaration – Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin – were also assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America.
Benjamin Franklin’s proposal is preserved in a note in his own handwriting:
Moses standing on the Shore, and extending his Hand over the Sea, thereby causing the same to overwhelm Pharaoh, who is sitting in an open Chariot, a Crown on his Head and a Sword in his Hand. Rays from a Pillar of Fire in the Clouds reaching to Moses, to express that he acts by Command of the Deity. The Motto inscribed on the Seal was “Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God” (First Committee’s Design for the Great Seal).
John Adams later described Jefferson’s depiction of the Great Seal:
“Mr. Jefferson proposed: The children of Israel in the wilderness, led by a pillar of cloud by day, and a pillar of fire by night, and on the other side Hengist and Horsa, the Saxon chiefs, from whom we claim the honour of being descended and whose political principles and form of government we have assumed.”
So, when it comes to praying for those that are in delegated positions within the government, we must remember that there are provisions within the US Constitution to actually go further than just praying. They must be lawfully dealt with when it comes to justice, especially knowing that we have provisions to lawfully remove and to charge them with their actions (James 2:14:26.)
Friends, We the People remove them, we do not pray for their continued reign of corruption (Article 2, Section 4 and Article 1, Section 3,Clause 7 of the US Constitution) to our own demise.
Remember, “The people of these United States are the rightful masters of both congresses and courts, not to over-throw the Constitution, but to over-throw the men who pervert that Constitution”
