It would seem that every day there is a new attack upon our freedom by the Obama administration. From the economy to the health care system, every time we turn around there is something new. And it’s happening so fast and from every direction making it appear as though the enemy is surrounding us and there is nothing we can do.
Why is this happening?
Well the answer can be found in a statement made by William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania, when he said:
“Those who will not be governed by God will be ruled by Tyrants”
There couldn’t be a truer statement. And William wasn’t the only one to say things like this. Most of Founding Fathers knew this to be true and declared it in one form or another. They observed that when God’s people governed themselves according to His Commandments they lived free and blessed. But when they rebelled against Him, they lived under oppression and tyranny. That’s just the way it is.
As it is written:
But if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these commandments;
And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul abhor my judgments, so that ye will not do all my commandments, but that ye break my covenant:
I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.
And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you. –Leviticus 26:14-17
These things are happening today beloved. We work hard (sow our seed), but our enemies eat up the fruits of our labor by over-taxation and redistribution of wealth. We have a President who hates America, grief has overtaken many, and the forces of political correctness pursue us everywhere we go. It’s all happening because America has forgotten its roots in God. And our people have become Biblically illiterate and disobedient.
Our Father continues on:
“And if ye will not yet for all this hearken unto Me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins.” –Leviticus 26:18
You know our Heavenly Father is trying to get our attention. He isn’t any different than our earthly fathers in the sense that he corrects his children when they disobey. I mean you love your children, don’t you? You wouldn’t let them get away with rebellion and disobedience, would you? Of course not. Because you don’t want to see them destroy themselves. Oh beloved, can you imagine things getting “seven times” worse than it is now?
It doesn’t have to be that way, as long as we turn back to Him.
But you know what. Some people cannot let go of their pride, they think that we can attain Freedom and Liberty without God. Boy are they mistaken, that kind of thinking leads to failure.
As it is written:
“And I will break the pride of your power: and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass: And your strength shall be spent in vain…” –Leviticus 26:20
However when we put our trust in God and obey His Commandments, freedom reigns, and no tyrant is able to take it away from us. I don’t care how outnumbered we are. It’s His promise:
“And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword.” –Leviticus 26:8
But today it seems as though it is now the other way around. Five of them scare a hundred of our people, and a hundred of them put ten thousand of ours to flight.
It’s time we fight back, but we must do it God’s way. We must begin governing ourselves according to God’s Word again, because obedience to His Word is the only path to freedom. In fact, His Commandments are designed to do just that, to protect and defend liberty. So don’t let Obama or any other tyrant frighten you into submission or cause you grief. Rather arm yourselves with the Truth from God’s Word, for it is a mighty sword that can cut through anything in its way, if you know how to use it.
Stand strong, never fear, and be a Christian Overcomer!
