I was having breakfast this week with a friend. I was asking his opinion about Congressman Richard Hudson and what we can do to hold him accountable. (I’ve written much about Hudson HERE, HERE, and HERE.) My friend’s thoughts resonated with me, and they gave me a fresh perspective. I left our breakfast understanding that God gives people the rulers they deserve.
We see this in Scripture. For example, in 1 Samuel 8 there were judges over the people. As I read this I take it that power was distributed among the judges, and power was not centralized. The Israelites asked Samuel, the head of the judges, to appoint a king over them, so Samuel prayed to God, and the Lord said to Samuel, “Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you, for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me.”
After the sale and disbursement of aborted babies was revealed through videos by the pro-life organization the Center for Medical Progress, and the Supreme Court legislatively negated God’s structure of marriage this summer, can we claim that America has not rejected God? In fact, most churches find it acceptable, because if they did not they would say something. The fact that churches say little to nothing is evidence that they find the sale of aborted babies and gay marriage acceptable. Passivity is lukewarmness and God clearly tells us in Revelation that it is detestable. Being silent while innocent people are killed is wrong.
Later in 1 Samuel 8, God tells Samuel to tell the Israelites what the king will do once he’s in power. Long story short, the king takes over as the ruler of the people and enslaves them. Verse 17 says, “And you will be his (the king’s) servants.” Nevertheless the people said, “No, but we will have a king over us, that we also may be like all the nations, and that our king may judge us and go before us and fight our battles.” I’ve heard countless times people in their 20s and 30s raving about European countries and things the governments in the European Union do for the people. They want to “be like all the nations…”
Most Christians and most Americans can’t be bothered to engage in anything outside of their jobs and entertainment. We see socialist ideologues like Barack Obama and Donald Trump, and people cry out for them because of their flattering speech about “hope” or making us a “winner.” Americans are crying out for someone to rule over us, and God gave us what we deserved in Obama. It stands to reason, He’s going to give us who we deserve until there is some type of spiritual awakening. Sadly, I believe most people will not do anything differently until we are enslaved like the Israelites in 1 Samuel 8. People are going to have to feel pain, otherwise nothing is going to change.
And people like Richard Hudson will continue their legacy of deceit. The establishment politicians have figured out that nobody is going to hold them accountable. We saw it in the 2014 election in North Carolina when now Senator Thom Tillis refused to show up at debates (CLICK HERE), and yet he won the election. Corrupt Richard Hudson knows he does not have to hold a town hall as his constituents requested, because there will be no consequences, for the simple reason that people are passive and lazy and will vote the party line when he’s up for reelection. And if there happens to be a viable competitor, the establishment knows where to find the money to shame the competitor.
This problem begins being resolved in churches. Christians have the bedrock in Scripture for how America’s government was created but we flippantly choose what is applicable and what is not. Even though the liberal establishment attempts to deny it, our government has its rudimentary foundations from Scripture.
Our churches are filled with teachers and the visionaries have died out. I’m most saddened by the lack of vision most churches have, and it directly relates to the non-Biblical role leaders within churches hold. The lens through which you read the Bible will impact your view of all other aspects of life.
Until the church is willing to speak the truth found in Scripture, the one-world government seekers will continue to win. Sadly, they’ve been winning for years, and yet Christians get played like a fiddle.
A blaring example of Americans being played was the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. Giving an opaque private organization the power to control monetary policy was a mistake the world has paid for. Just last week the Federal Reserve stated that it cannot raise interest rates. The short reason, they’ve tampered with monetary policy so long that that they are doomed if they change anything. The house of cards is about to fall and will again reveal how miserable of an organization the Federal Reserve truly is. Click here to learn about Exiting the Stock Market.
To think that there is nothing we can do is shortsighted, and I believe those coming behind us will inherit great lacks of liberty and freedom. And sadly, I think many of us alive today are going to feel the consequences of our apathy. My guess is that it will be monetary pain first.
A Congressman from Minnesota named Charles August Lindbergh (1859 – 1924) astutely said, “We should remember that we are dealing with systems and not with individuals, and that we have no right to blame individuals for the present system nor because they use it, but we have a right to ask them to examine it carefully, and if they find errors, to join in an endeavor to correct them and not make an unfair use of the opportunities such errors may present them. Radical changes are not possible until they come by common consent.”
