“Woe to the rebellious children, saith the Lord, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin: That walk to go down into Egypt, and have not asked at my mouth; to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shadow of Egypt!” -Isaiah 30:1-2
When you look at how the presidents of the United States have been and are treated regardless of what administration it is in the past or present, we have to ask ourselves why it is so in light of knowing that there is no title of nobility (Article 1, Section 9, Clause 8). They are treated like kings because of the way they are sold to their constituency through controlled media sources.
Yet, we must remember that these are not kings. They are representative servants of the people. So, why they are treated as such, especially when they are pushing forward illegal agendas to further enslave their subjects who still thought that they were free?
It reminds me of the Jewish people who had said to Jesus:
“We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?”
…All the while, they were in bondage to the Romans and that by their own wills (John 8:33).
Did not Jesus warn us to beware of those who come in His name? As a matter of fact, I cannot remember a presidential candidate running for office that did not make reference to themselves as being Christian, which was often done only in an attempt to appease the people at large in hopes of winning office. It seems more than not, and that without fail, they will say the right things and the people will take them for their word rather than what they are responsible for doing.
“He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.” -1 John 2:4
Furthermore, Jesus also told us to judge them by their fruits (Matthew 7:16) and if Americans simply did what Jesus taught us to do, we would not be in the predicament that we are in today.
“For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.” -Matthew 24:5-8
Did not Paul warn how we should detect counterfeits when he proclaimed, “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works” (2 Corinthians 11:14-15).
Today, we see that what Jesus and His disciples warned about, the American people have completely rejected and have cast out of their minds by throwing caution to the wind and embracing those who are further enslaving them.
If you remember, the Jews of the day, rejected their own Savior…
“He came unto his own, and his own received him not,” (John 1:11)
…and were responsible for His crucifixion as they shouted, “Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate said unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar” (John 19:15).
In contrast to what our forefathers exhibited through their actions (James 2:14-26) and what it is that they established, today’s Americans, like the Jews in the day of Christ, embrace those who are enslaving them while rejecting the Christ who was sent to liberate them (John 8:36; 2 Corinthians 3:17).
Are corrupt presidential candidates sold to the American people shown for the tyrants that they really are or are they sold to you as something that they are not?
Before I make the next point, let me put you to the test…Who would you vote for?
What is it that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob has taught us through our forefathers?
The American forefathers and founders drew up the Declaration of Independence, which was to liberate in accordance to the Word of God by declaring such things as:
“When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation?
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.”
England engaged in a “long train of abuses and usurpations” against the colonies.
- Refused to assent to necessary colonial laws
- Dissolved colonial legislatures
- Prevented emigration to colonies
- Made administration colonies of colonial justice impossible by controlling judges and refusing to approve needed laws
- Appointed bureaucrats to harass colonial population
- Keeping standing armies in colonies, not subject to control of colonial government
- Cutting off colonial trade with the rest of the world
- Taxation without representation
- Denial of trial by jury
- Transporting colonists for trial in England (Fatiguing them into compliance)
- Abrogating English common law in Canada, setting an example for same in colonies
- Abolishing colonial charter
- Taking colonists captive on the high sea
- Incited insurrection and Indian warfare against the colonists
Conclusion: The King was “unfit to be the ruler of a free people.”
The Colonists’ efforts to resolve grievances peaceably went unheeded.
If you look to the usurpations and transgressions of the King that would not be ruled by God, you can clearly see that Americans today have far surpassed that which our forefathers tolerated. In response, they declared, “These United Colonies are, and of Right, ought to be Free and Independent States…” from tyranny (1 Kings 18:18).
Remember, that they had a “firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence.”
Shortly 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 it is that history teaches us, as does it in the present, the we are to submit in obedience to God (Romans 12:21) while resisting tyranny only to behold the salvation of the Most High!
“And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the LORD overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea.” -Exodus 14:27
