It is written: “See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.” -Colossians 2:8
Christ Jesus, Yeshua: “If a kingdom is divided against itself, it cannot stand. If a house is divided against itself, it cannot stand. And if Satan is divided and rises against himself, he cannot stand; his end has come.” -Mark 3:24-26
We live in a broken, sinful world with broken, sinful people (Romans 3:23), and as Christians, we know that we will encounter persecution in life. We cannot change people’s behavior (only Christ Jesus can); nevertheless, evil can only be overcome with good. Manmade government will never be able to enact enough laws to eradicate the issue.
Culture and eternal mastery are not what the average person thinks about; however, transmitting abundant life to each new generation is the natural order. Take for example American football- the basic rules, objective of the game, and name of a team can carry forward in time indefinitely, but the players are all new individuals over time.
So many men and powers have tried to rule the world without a true heart for God and deep understanding of sacred life; and, as a result, have habitually failed. Vatican is suggested as the central christian “eternal city”, but with its secular Roman underpinnings it too will fail. This is why there is so much habitual war and unrest amongst humanity! Jesus clearly stated that His Kingdom was from another place. The Holy Bible and Jesus’ teachings are missing from society! The citizens fail to live by God’s instructions. “Stop trusting in man…” The following is the main gate/door/entrance by which America’s demise was made certain! Article VI, paragraph 3, U.S. Constitution: “The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.” Furthermore, Constitutions of men are not perfectly written instruments no matter how well worded. Democracy Not Working!
Forbes Magazine, December 8, 2003, an article entitled Holy Influence quoted Art Ally “that homosexuality led to the fall of the Roman Empire” … and “No nation in the history of the world has ever survived moral collapse.”
“In a nation shaped by Christian values, the ultimate authority is not God or his word. While Christian values may influence the creation of the laws, those laws or a constitution are the ultimate authority. In America, for example, when judges interpret laws, they don’t judge them based on how they align with scripture. They measure based on the laws that have already been written. There is no guarantee that those interpreting those laws will even acknowledge that Christian values shape them. A society shaped by Christian values points to a moral code people choose to live by. That code may or may not be directly part of the laws of the land.” –biblestudytools.com Movie: Time Changer– “teaching morality without Jesus as the standard would be detrimental to future generations.” Book: FREE INDEED, Living Life in Light of the Biblical View of Freedom
America was an experiment by secular elites from its inception via a republic/democracy. Its origins are from the Greco-Roman empires. The ideology that all religions and belief can come together under democracy is false and a lie. It destroyed a lot of unique diverse culture like the Native Indigenous People and assimilated them. There is one True God, not gods, and there is inherent freewill that must be exercised to master sin before sin master’s the man and the nation! Jesus’ Christianity saved civilization in the past, and it must save civilization again in the present times. Good news: The increase of Jesus’ government has no end (Isaiah 9:7.) Turn from sin America because you will never be great without Christ Jesus, Yeshua!
The one who has the Spirit of God knows that this present government (“American experiment”) cannot be directly derived or constructed from the Holy Bible! The “Founding Forefathers” had historical insight; however, evidently, they did not understand how to contain the evil or not use underhanded means themselves for conquering evil. Only Jesus deals with the root problem sin.
“The framers of the Constitution firmly believed in government under law. They wanted to protect the country from tyranny in any form. They believed that a misguided majority might be as dangerous to good government under law as a privileged minority or a power mad dictator.” -Rise of the American Nation, HBJ; (Retired Otter Valley Union High School Book, Brandon, Vermont
“Dark side Exposed. As a capitalistic institution, the United States is not a democratic society. It is a plutocratic nation governed by the rich for the rich. Although theoretically the government is the ultimate authority of a nation, in practice the ultimate power lies entirely in the hands of big industry headed by the weapons complex.” -Charles Mercieca, Ph.D., President, International Association of Educators for World Peace Dedicated to United Nations Goals of Peace Education. Read also Mockery of Christianity in America: “They censure Christ’s teaching by ignoring categorically everything Jesus taught that is not in line with their social agenda.” Understand Manmade Law, “the lowest form of law”!
“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.” -Proverbs 14:34
“The aim- understood by presidents, overlooked by many voters- is eternal mastery and control, which, naturally has a high price. Bacevich’s (*1) cool, balanced analysis is compelling, and recalls chilling words penned by James Madison (*2) in 1795: ‘Of all the dreaded enemies of public liberty, war is perhaps the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies. From these proceed debt and taxes. And armies, debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few.’” -Geoffrey Wawro, Professor of strategic studies at the U.S. Naval War college

(*2) James Madison was the most responsible for the U.S. Constitution
“But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: ‘Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. -Matthew 12:25
Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world; if it were, My servants would fight to prevent My arrest by the Jews. But now My kingdom is not of this realm.” – John 18:36
“Without God there is no virtue because there is no prompting of the conscience… without God there is a coarsening of the society.” -Young America’s Foundation
If I Were the Devil (Paul Harvey 1965) “Cults invariably will attempt to get us away from the Bible and Christ our Savior and impose the authority of the cult leader over the Bible.” -Rick Kuntz
The U.S. Constitution is an imperfect writ (legal document ) devised of man; on the other hand, the Scriptures declare:
“The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant , giving light to the eyes. The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever. The ordinances of the Lord are all together righteous. They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the comb. By them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.” -Psalm 19:7-11
Evidence of the spiritual battle (03-5-12): “We have already lost our rights to do at least half of the things on that list as well as many others, to some extent! What is going on here? Simply this: Power-hungry government officials – backed by people with hidden agendas – have convinced us to sacrifice our freedoms bit by bit, always in the name of some supposedly noble cause (usually something to do with protecting us from some imaginary or greatly exaggerated danger). And with every change they gain a little more power; a little more control.” -Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association
“I don’t want to reflect on my fellow politicians, but if every politician that ever lied was incapable of holding of service, I’m not too sure of how many we’d have left.” -James Jefford, Vermont (USA) Representative [career politician]; quote taken after a press conference; Burlington Free Press (year 2000)
America’s survival is to return to the Living God, Christ Jesus for:
It is written: “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. -2 Chronicles 7:14
“However arrogant the world, Jesus Christ is King. There’s nothing anybody can do about it. Psalm 2 says ‘Why do the heathen rage? I have set my King upon my holy hill of Zion’. They may revolt, but His kingship and throne will never be moved. Democracy decreed Christ’s death but not His Kingship. ‘He IS Lord’. Some mistakenly assume Christians gain control of the cities and the nations, ‘binding their kings in chains’, so that Christ can take over. But we don’t organize the Kingdom of God and then invite Christ to rule. Only God the Father will do that. (Ps.2, Hebrews 1:13). The world wasn’t ready the first time, and won’t be ready the next time, but He will come just the same. He offers us the privilege of being in His kingdom. ‘Except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” There will be a crowning day for those who live for Christ. (2 Timothy 4:8) He will crown them, but they will never crown Him. God’s richest blessings.” REINHARD BONNKE
“But that alliance was a poisoned chalice. It meant that from the very beginning the power of Western Christendom was based on hierarchical power in Roman style, with the pope substituting for Caesar, rather than on the covenantal style of biblical and Jewish politics.” ” … Catholicism has never done justice to the biblical and Jewish understanding of covenant…” -Taken from Impossible People by Os Guinness.
