Theocracy versus Democracy.

THEOCRACY VERSUS DEMOCRACY Mankind is created to love and serve God. Mankind were created to be free moral agents with the right of choice. In Daniel Chapter 2 we read about the four Gentile Kingdoms of man BABYLON , MEDO PERSIA, GREECE AND ROME ,that will give way to the KINGDOM OF GOD. The REVIVED ROMAN EMPIRE is the fourth Gentile Kingdom that must give way to the KINGDOM OF GOD. Soon the Seventh Angel will sound his trumpet .

.... 15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever....... . ( Revelation 11 verse 15 ). Where did all this confusion on earth start ? Satan is the author of this confusion.
The LORD .......GOD is not the author of confusion ,but of peace .... . ( 1 Corinthians 14 verse 33 ). Satan led a rebellion in heaven against God and was cast out of heaven. The Lord Jesus said .... I beheld satan as lightening fall from heaven.... . ( Luke 10 verse 18 ). On earth we see the rise of the occult. We see demonology . We see ancestral worship. We see satanic worship. We see people dabbling into abominable worship of demons under the guise of religion. We see enticing spirits invade religious realms. We see enticing spirits influence the political and judicial realms. We see confusion in the democratic process. It is ....spiritual wickedness in high places.... . ( Ephesians 6 verse 12 ). People need to repent and turn back to God. Families need to repent and turn back to God Nations need to repent and turn back to God. The United Nations are not united at all . They may be united on a piece of paper but act like the Divided Nations. A Modern Tower of Babel. ( Genesis 11 verse 1 to 9 ). Brother is against brother, tribe is against tribe, ethnic tribe against ethnic tribe. Why ? They rejected the Bible. They rejected the Word of God. They rejected the Truth. They rejected God s Prophets. They rejected the true worship of God ...in spirit and in truth .. ( John 4 verse 24 ). The World rejected the LORD s PRAYER.

In the LORD¶s PRAYER, The Lord Jesus taught the disciples that : .....9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
2

11

Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

12

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
14

13

For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:

But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.... . ( Matthew 6 verse 9 to 15 ). Heaven lives by the WORD OF GOD and Planet earth is to live by the WORD OF GOD. The WORD OF GOD ruling man is THEOCRACY or THE DIVINE ORDAINED RULE OF GOD IN THE AFFAIRS OF MANKIND. ...Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven ... ( Matthew 6 verse 10 ). The Will of God in heaven will be done on earth. The Sermon on the Mount in Matthew Chapters 5 ,6 and 7 gives the BEAUTIFUL ATTITUDES or the BEATTITUDES of the Children of KINGDOM OF GOD. The Character of the Children of the Kingdom of God manifests the KINGDOM OF GOD on earth. The Children of God are to manifest heaven on earth. The earth is filled with too much hatred, too much violence, too much wickedness. The Children of God are to shine their light in this world of darkness and manifest the love of God to a lost and dying world tellin g all that have ears to hear THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM that : .... For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life..... . ( John 3 verse 16 ). Mankind were created in the Image of God. ( Genesis 1 verses 26 and 27 ). Sin , ...missing the mark.... ( Romans 6 verse 23 ) flawed the character of man so that in man s fallen state he cannot reflect the Character of God. The Apostle Paul said ...when I want to do good, evil is present... . ( Romans 7 verse 21 ) In Romans 7 verses 14 to 25 .
14

15

For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.

15

16

If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

17

For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.
19

18

For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:

20

21

22

But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
24

23

O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin..... . The nature of man.the carnal nature and the spiritual .
The Bible says that through Adam s disobedience to the Word of God .... many were made sinners, so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.... . ( Romans 5 verse 19 ). Cain rebelled against the Divine Order of God and refused to worship and serve God according to the revealed Divine Order of God. ( Genesis Chapter 4 verses 1 to 17 ). Lucifer rebelled against God. ( Isaiah 14 verses 12 to 20 ; Ezekiel 28 verses 13 to 19 ). Nimrod rebelled against God. The Babylonians built the Tower of Babel. The Tower of Babel was a manifestation of unredeemed man s submission to satanic influence to reject Theocracy for Democracy. ( Genesis 11 verse 1 to 9 ). God gave Israel prophets. Israel looked around at other nations and wanted to be like other nations. They rejected God s prophet. They rejected God s Word. They rejected God. They rejected Theocracy and demanded Democracy. That was then . Israel will turn back to God. The Messianic Jews in Israel are now praying for the return of the Messiah. Israel is seeking God . Israel is repenting as a Nation and is believing God s prophets. The doors of salvation to the Gentile sis closing. May God have mercy. In 1 Samuel 8 verses 1 to 22 we read : 4

25

....... 1 And it came to pass, when Samuel was old, that he made his sons judges over Israel. Now the name of his firstborn was Joel; and the name of his second, Abiah: they were judges in Beersheba. And his sons walked not in his ways, but turned aside after lucre, and took bribes, and perverted judgment. Then all the elders of Israel g athered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah, And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations. But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD. And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them. According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee. Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.
10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2

And Samuel told all the words of the LORD unto the people that asked of him a king.

And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots. And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots.

And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers.

And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants. And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants. And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work.

He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants.

And ye shall cry out in that day bec ause of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day. Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; 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 out before us, and fight our battles. And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and he rehearsed them in the ears of the LORD. And the LORD said to Samuel, Hearken unto their voice, and make them a king. And Samuel said unto the men of Israel, Go ye every man unto his city...... . Theocracy versus Democracy. Unredeemed man is imperfect tainted by greed , selfishness and corruption. Unredeemed man has too much selfish ambitions. Too much ego . Too much pride, too much arrogance. Man cannot fairly rule over man.
Democracy is supposed to be ...the rule of the people... Trouble is does ...rule of the people... define a certain group of people that are ...educated... or does it define a group of people with ....money.... or does it define a group of people with ....muscle power.... or does it describe a group of people that can by ....sheer influence .... Command the majority of votes. What is the ....rule of the People.... ? Is the ...rule of the people.... the general collective will of the people in a given locality?

What then is the .....general will of the people.... ? Is it what Scholars of Democracy say rights.... ? .....? Basic food, basic shelter, basic clothes and basic human

There is one world, and so much trouble in this world. People fighting people for ..... Basic food, basic shelter, basic clothes and basic human rights.... ? Some people got more money than a village, than a town, than a city. Some people stay in big houses surrounded by brick walls to keep the poor people out. Rich people have a right to have ..... Basic food, basic shelter, basic clothes and basic human rights.... Other people got less money than other people in the same village, the same town. The same city. They do not stay in a big house surrounded by bricks walls because they do not want to be separated from the poor people. They recognise that rich people worked hard for their money and that life is filled with competition and that there are a few winners in life and there are other people that just

cannot make it in life even if they get given a golden plate and a silver spoon and a big house surrounded by brick walls and access to the internet and multimedia. Is knowledge good ? Is too much knowledge very good ? How much is enough knowledge ? People say that they want to know their rights , what rights do they want to know ? I am a sinner saved by the Grace of God. The Lord Jesus Christ is My Lord and Saviour. ( Romans 10 verse8 to 10 ) . I am no politician, nor am I a scholar of democracy, nor am I an advocate of any ....human rights... . You will not see me protesting in the streets . I have a right to choose not to protest. You will not see me carrying angry placards. I have a right to choose not to carry angry placards. You will not see me harassing people. I have a right to choose not to harass people. You will not see me begging for food. I trust in the One True Living God to provide and supply all my needs. You will not see me making a public nuisance of myself. I have a right to treat everyone with public decency and courtesy. I was given the Gift of Life by God who blessed me with Godly righteous Parents that believe that the Bible is the Word of God. I believe that when people reject the Word of God they forsake their own mercy. I believe that there are dark forces working in the world today to influence people to reject the Word of God. I believe that these dark forces are the enemies of mankind. I believe that the BLOOD OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST shed at Calvary set the captives free and answered the sin question. I believe that the Lord Jesus Christ rose from the dead and is alive forevermore. I believe that Christianity is the only religion in the world that can point to an empty tomb of it s founder. The LORD JESUS CHRIST IS ALIVE ! HE LIVES ! HE LIVES ! HE LIVES ! I believe that the LORD JESUS CHRIST gave His disciples power to cast out demons. ( Matthew 28 verse 18 to 20; Luke 24 verse 26 to 48 ; Mark 15 verse 20 ; Acts 1 verse 8; Acts 10 verse 38 ). I believe that these dark forces are demon entities that can be cast out and defeated and destroyed by prayer and fasting and faith in God s Word .

³.....9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
7

And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation , and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony ; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. .... . ( Revelation 12 verses 9 to 12 ).
The Apostle Paul said .....Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: . ( Hebrews 12 verse 14 ). I believe that in every person there is good and evil. The Bible says ...For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;.... . ( Romans 3 verse 23 ). The Apostle Paul said :
12 11

..... 1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
2

God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we s hall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
7 6 5 4

3

For he that is dead is freed from sin. Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:

8

Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
10

9

For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto Go d.

Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
8

11

12

Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.

Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
14

13

For sin shall not have dominion over you: for y e are not under the law, but under grace. What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.

15

Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
18 17

16

Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness .
20

19

For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.

What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. But now being made free from sin, and become servants to Go d, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord..... . True believers over the world . pray and fast. The LORD JESUS CHRIST will soon return to earth to set up His Kingdom. Amen and Amen.
