Submission. What the scripture really says.
Because this subject is starting to raise its ugly head again it is now also appropriate to visit this subject anew. There are qualifications attached to the instructions concerning submission. To submit to authority, is not a blanket, one fits all rule. The kingdom of Satan is also an authority, do you really think that you as a Christian are expected to submit to that.
Jas 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Well what do you know, there are also scriptures where you are instructed to resist. Now why are those never brought up. Kind of like the subject of mammon, never brought up or talked about.
If a governing authority orders you to sacrifice your first born to the demon Moloch are you going to do it. Well the old Philistines did just that in the past and God the Father brought in other nations to destroy them for their evil. So much for the rulership there being ordained by God. Sad part is that this is still going on today but it is disguised as woman rights and freedom of choice. But the end result will be the same, invasion !
If the government uses the rule of law to round up all the Jews and put them in holding camps awaiting slaughter, are you going to comply. Will you obey the law and rat out every Jew you see. Well that happened just last century and the worst part is that the same situation is starting to build up again. Only this time around it could well be the rounding up of the Christians as well.
Right now a situation is being developed where we are going to be required by law to accept the mark of the beast so that we can be identified for our social credit score and be allowed to travel or enter a work place. Are you really going to submit yourself to that Mark and condemn yourself for all eternity even though the scriptures have warned you against it. Well you are going to have to become a law breaker and become a criminal to obey Gods commands.
Of course there are criteria associated with the commands regarding submission of the saints. For goodness sake, get your heads screwed on straight and stop being bamboozled into submitting to that which is obviously in opposition to Gods will.
1Co 16:16 That ye submit yourselves unto such, and to every one that helpeth with us, and laboureth.
Well there is a command to submit, but there is a presupposition there. Those we are to submit to are workers in the church and are helping the original apostles who are expected to have their theology and motives correct.
Heb 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.
Again here we are commanded to obey but those we are to obey are themselves required to give account before God because they are in service to God and the kingdom of heaven. They are supposed to be looking out for the better interests of those they have authority over.
Rom 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
Rom 13:2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
Rom 13:3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
Rom 13:4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
And now we get to Romans 13, which the Satanists twist to try and bring the saints into bondage to themselves. Look at the qualifier in verse three. A ruler that praises good works and punishes evil. That is as viewed from the perspective of God and his commands as shown in verse one. Verse four shows that the power you are to subject yourself to is one that is administrating in obedience to God, not the ruler of this world who is Satan.
What ever I write and put out in the public domain is for the public. Feel free to copy and use when needed to counter the workers of iniquity, when they try to manipulate the scriptures, to make the saints submit to wrong doing.
