The Kingdom of Christ
Much is heard, today, “we want the Constitution restored to its former glory”; “I believe in the Constitution”; “The Constitution is the law of the land” and more of the same. Well we submit that if the constitution was such a great and wonderful document, then the Jews and other subversives could not have subverted it to the extent that it is now noting but a piece of paper.
However, the enemy has never been able to subvert God’s Word as found in the Bible. Oh sure there have been false translations, one after the other; especially in the last 50 years or so, but the fact remains that the enemy must leave out large portions and change the wording of many scriptures to even remotely delute the wisdom contained therein. Even after all of this the Word still gets out and people still coming to a saving knowledge of Christ.
By the following quotes we can clearly see that the Jews have been working since the founding of this country to destroy the constitution, which Hamilton helped in a clandestine way, to form the wording.
“All these states which the Snake traversed have had the foundations of their constitutions shaken. Germany, with its apparent power, forming no exception to the rule. In economic conditions England and Germany are spared, but only till the conquest of Russia is accomplished by the Snake, on which at present (i.e., 1905) all its efforts are concentrated. The further course of the Snake is not shown on this map, but arrows indicate its next movement towards Moscow, Kieff, and Odessa. (Introduction to the Protocols, Paragraph 22)
“The constitution scales of these days will shortly break down, for we have established them with a certain lack of accurate balance in order that they may oscillate incessantly until they wear through the pivot on which they turn. The goyim are under the impression that they have welded them sufficiently strong and they have all along kept on expecting that the scales would come into equilibrium... We have made a gulf between the far‑seeing Sovereign Power and the blind force of the people so that both have lost all meaning, for like the blind man and his stick, both are powerless apart. (Protocol 2:2)
“All people are chained down to heavy toil by poverty more firmly than ever they were chained by slavery and serfdom; from these, one way and another, they might free themselves, these could be settled with, but from want they will never get away., We have included in the constitution such rights as to the masses appear fictitious and not actual rights. All these so‑called "People's Rights" can exist only in idea, an idea which can never be realized in practical life...” (Protocol 3:5)
“Liberalism produced Constitutional States, which took the place of what the only safeguard of the goyim, namely, Despotism; and a constitution, as you well know, is nothing else but a school of discords, misunderstandings, quarrels, disagreements, fruitless party agitations, party whims, in a word, a school of everything that serves to destroy the personality of State activity...” (Protocol 10:10)
With this one can see how true the Protocols are, as the things they said they would do, is being done today. Especially with the constitution. Also, we can see why they convinced our founding fathers to create a constitution, instead of the Articles of Confederation. They could never have subverted the Articles of Confederation such as they have done to the constitution.
It is only when the Gospel of the Kingdom is proclaimed and God’s people become willing to conform with its jurisprudence will the tribulations and sorrows of was the Gospel all the prophets proclaimed, with John the Baptist admonishing his generation to conform with the terms of that Gospel. This voice, crying in the wilderness, was the messenger to prepare the way of the Lord. (Luke 1:76)
The acceptance of the Gospel of the Kingdom would assure the establishment of righteousness throughout the land. After John the Baptist was imprisoned, Jesus went about all Galilee preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom. (Matthew 4:23) Following His rejection as the Messiah, Jesus then instructed His disciples to proclaim the Gospel of Salvation. (Matthew 28:18-20) Because of the refusal to accept and conform with the terms of the Gospel of the Kingdom, Jesus informed all who would accept Him that in this present world order in John 16:33: “...ye shall have tribulation.”
While the preaching of salvation has resulted in millions accepting Christ as their Savior, assuring citizenship in His Kingdom, the failure to establish Kingdom administration in conformity with what is required, according to the Gospel of the Kingdom, has made the Christian era a time of persecution, tribulation and sorrow for uncounted numbers of our Lord’s followers.
Had the perfection of Kingdom administration been established at the beginning of this era of time, the present world order would have given way to the establishment of the new order of the ages. Had such taken place, the blessings, according to Micah 4:2, would have come to pass long ago when “the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.”
There is abroad, and stated by many theologians and accepted by multitudes of Christians, that the Kingdom of God is within your heart. Luke 17:21 is cited to sustain this erroneous belief. It states: “Behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” The two words “within your” are rendered more properly to in the margin “among you.”
Christ was speaking to the Pharisees (The Jews) and He was stating that He, as coming King in that Kingdom, was present and standing right there among them. The Emphatic Diaglott, a translation of the New Testament into English by Benjamin Wilson, renders this as to its true meaning. Christ said to the Pharisees: “Nor shall they say, Behold here! Or there! To behold god’s royal Majesty is among you.”
When Christ said many would come to sit down with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob/Israel in the Kingdom, (Luke 13:29) that Kingdom is not in your hearts but is the Kingdom that was established at Mount Sinai which is the Kingdom of our Lord. (Luke 1:33) When He returns He will take over the throne of His father David. The Gospel of the kingdom proclaims its laws and their administration. The children of Israel assented at Mount Sinai to become citizens of that Kingdom. The commandments, statutes and judgments of the law of the Lord were given to this Kingdom to be administered as the Law of their land. Moses emphasized again and again the need of keeping and observing all of God’s Laws that it might be well with them and their sons and son’s son all the days of their life and that their days may be prolonged. (Deuteronomy 6:2)
The book, “Digest of the Divine Law,” points out the fact that we face today, the rule of law or chaos. It sets forth the justice, equity and righteousness of the Law of the Lord. When the entire range of Divine jurisprudence is comprehended, and its precepts are obeyed, individual prosperity and national well-being will be the beneficent result. God has decreed a day would come when His Kingdom people shall “walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.” (Ezekiel 37:24)
In light of current world developments, God is even now beginning to move to cause His Kingdom people to feel the pressure of His hand resting upon them and to know His might and power through increasing trouble and to thus compel a turning to Him and become willing to keep the terms of the covenant made with our forefathers at Mount Sinai. The actually of that pressure is going to become very severe during the coming months for His purpose will be accomplished. Paul Harvey, in his column published in the “Grit” for April 7th, reveals the extent to which we have departed, as a nation, from recognizing God and His laws. He states: You’ve been hearing, “We must keep separate church and state.” When President Reagan suggested that religion and government are inevitably related, there were those who said such was a grave threat to the constitutional separation of Church and State. Mr. Harvey correctly stated that it says nothing in the Constitution about separation of Church and State.
The First Amendment does not mention the state, nor does it mention the church, neither dies it mention separation. All it says is that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. Mr. Harvey proceeds to quote facts pertaining to our early history.
When Jamestown was settle din 1607, as their first act they erected a wooden cross and conducted a prayer meeting In 1620 the Mayflower Compact begins “In the name of God..” and goes on from there. In 1643 the Supreme Court’s Trinity Decision affirmed that “this is a religious people, this is a Christian nation.” He refers to a statement by James Madison, the author of our Constitution, who said, “It is impossible to govern without God and the Ten Commandments.” Attention is called to the fact that all our school-books from 1776 to 1800 were scriptural. Tody instead of drifting into the direction of too much religion in government, we have, in fact, drifted toward the total exclusion of god from government. The result is law-abiding Americas are increasingly at the mercy of the lawless.
We are reaching an impasse today and God is beginning to move and, through the pressure of extreme adversity, our nation is going to be compelled to turn completely about-face and acknowledge of the God of our forefathers and become willing, yes, anxious to restore His laws as the law of our land.
Of that law David states: “The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.” (Psalm 19:7-10)
Thus is shown the scope of the law, without a knowledge of which it is impossible to understand righteousness, judgment and equity. Failure to comprehend the Law of the Lord prevents true discernment between that which is good and that which is evil. It was the lack of such understanding among Christians that brought forth the statement from Paul that they were but babes, because they had not gone beyond the principles of the doctrines of Christ. He tells us such are unskilled in the word of righteousness, which is the Law of the Lord, and are, therefore, unable to digest the strong meat which belongeth to them that are of a full age. (Hebrews 5:12-14; 6:1-2)
The commandments, statutes and judgments of the Law of the Lord lay down rules of conduct for the individual and the penalties for their violation. They also cover the whole range of governmental activities, enjoining the nation to administer all these laws which will establish justice and equity throughout our land. For our national failure to thus observe the requirements of righteousness, Divine retribution has become inevitable.
While God’s precepts and laws are set forth in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, they are specifically presented in their fullness when Israel became His Kingdom people at Mount Sinai. The failure to proclaim, along with the Gospel of personal Salvation, the Gospel of the kingdom has caused both the Christian and the unbeliever to suffer as the result of maladministration.
Isaiah states: “Therefore is judgment far form us, neither doth justice overtake us: we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness.” (Isaiah 59:9)
The spiritual leaders occupying the pulpits in our land today are like a man lost in the woods and who travels in a circle leading their followers with them. Because of their refusal to recognize the identity of the people of the Book, they fail to understand the story the Bible tells, while the Law of the Lord is relegated to the limbo of forgetfulness.
The Sunday School instruction quarterlies (which, by the way, are all written and printed by Jews; thus instituting their false doctrines into the minds of our children in their early forming years) purport to be the acme of instruction in biblical knowledge. These lessons contain practically nothing regarding the importance of the prophetic word of the scope of the Law of the Lord. These quarterlies completely ignore the Scriptural distinction between the history and prophetic predictions pertaining to the House of Israel and that of Judah, while the terms of the covenant God made with our forefathers are seldom if ever mentioned.
Was Isaiah given a preview of the type of leadership that would prevail as the age drew to its close when he said: “The leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.” (Isaiah 9:16)
It is also written, “Ye have cause many to stumble at the law.” (Malachi 2:8) Yet Christ said, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy the law or the prophets: I an not come to destroy (the law), but to fulfill (prophecy).” (Matthew 5:17) The Law of the Lord is still operating and in force for as stated by Christ: “For verily I say unto you. Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all (prophecy) be fulfilled.” (Matthew 5:18)
Because of progressive foreknowledge of things to come as revealed by God to His servants the prophets, not one dot or hair stroke shall ever disappear from the law.
Theologians are not the dispensers of the law; neither are they constituted its administrators. They have appropriated for themselves the right t declare the Law of the lord to be no longer relevant, which is completely contrary to Scriptural instruction; and is a damnable Jewish lie that has been instituted into the Judeo-Christian church. The law, its enforcement and the imposing of penalties for its violation are government prerogatives and not ecclesiastical functions, for they, along with all the citizens of the Kingdom, must observe and obey all that is required under the law rather than discard and break the law. If breaking the law is to sin, how far from being righteous are they who declare the law to be no longer relevant? Micah states that the law will go forth from Zion, that is, Israel’s government, over which is established David’s Throne. Isaiah confirms this when he prophesied that from the throne in the Kingdom would go forth righteousness: “Upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with justice from henceforth even for ever.” (Isaiah 9:7)
Administering the affairs of state and passing as to whether the law is being observed or violated is a national and state function. Thus the Lord declared the King or head of government shall read the law all the days of his life: “That he may learn to fear the Lord his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them.” Deuteronomy 17:19)
Today ecclesiastical leaders are undertaking to function as the sole guardians of God’s Word, yet the instructions as to the administration of righteousness are directed to the attention of those charged with administering the affairs of state. Ecclesiastical leaders have fulfilled their responsibility after calling to the attention of our national leaders what God requires of them.
Through Jeremiah the Lord states: “They that handle (use unwarrantably) the law knew me not.” (Jeremiah 2:8) Judeo-Christian church leaders who voice their belief that the law of the Lord is no longer in effect also seek to prevent others declaring otherwise. Ezekiel deals with this issue: “And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! Should not the shepherds feed the flocks? Y eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock.” (Ezekiel 34:1-3)
God is, here, condemning the spiritual leaders of His people from withholding His word from His people Israel, “The sheep of his pasture.” (Psalm 100:3) Thus the Lord declares: “O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts. Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand in the battle of the day of the Lord.” (Ezekiel 13:4-5)
For this the Lord has decreed that these shepherds, who have failed to lead His people aright, shall be consumed in the coming day of Divine wrath. Let us consider the laws which these spiritual leaders today declare are not now in effect. They fail to conceive that there are four great bodies of law set forth in the Bible.
These laws can be classified as follows. 1). The laws contained in commandments, 2). The laws set forth in the statutes, 3). The statutes and the laws governing judgments rendered in cases involving both the commandments and statutes of the law of the Lord, and 4). The ordinances which were nailed to the stake when Christ became the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world for the redemption of His people and for the remission of sins. The following reveals that the commandments apply to individual conduct, the statutes to national administration, and the judgments to the decisions rendered under both the commandments and statutes.
The commandment states, “Thou shalt not kill.” (Exodus 20:13; Deuteronomy 5:17) The Hebrew word here translated kill is “murder.” thus the commandment should read: “Thou shalt not murder.”
Kill: Strong’s Concordance: #7523 ratsach (raw‑tsakh'); a primitive root; properly, to dash in pieces, i.e. kill (a human being), especially to murder: KJV‑‑ put to death, kill, (man‑) slay (‑er), murder (‑er).
Kill: Brown-Driver-Briggs’ Definition: #7523 ratsach‑to murder, to slay, to kill
a) (Qal) to murder, to slay
3) as avenger
4) slayer (intentional) (participle)
b) (Niphal) to be slain
1) to murder, to assassinate
2) murderer, assassin (participle) (substantive)
d) (Pual) to be killed
What is to be done with the murderer? The following is the God-given statute: “Whoso killeth any person, the murderer shall be put to death by the mouth of witnesses.” (Numbers 35:30)
This declaration is stated to be a statute of judgment for Israel throughout all generations. Then the following judgment is rendered: “Moreover ye shall no satisfaction for the life of a murderer, which is guilty of death: but he shall be surely put to death.” (Numbers 35:31)
Our land today is plagued with an increase in violence and crime as the result of the refusal to observe and keep these laws. Because of such failure according to the Divine verdict, the land in which we live is defiled. Only one lacking in complete understanding would teach that the ten commandments need not be obeyed. It is well, however, to remember no law will enforce itself and, apart form the authority to punish those who violate the law, enforcement of observing the requirements of the law becomes nebulous. For this reason governments were established and penalties imposed for violation of the law. God also sets forth the penalties for the violating of His laws.
The law of the Lord provides for every activity of government, individual conduct and personal welfare. It gives the only true economic system that would treat rich and poor alike. It provides for the elimination of poverty; for safeguarding health; for eradication of disease; for national defense in time of war; and, for the restoration of peace, prosperity and happiness for all. In fact, all of man’s activities, whether by organized government, business relations, or individual conduct, are controlled and blessed by adhering to the law. When the entire range of Divine jurisprudence is comprehended and its precepts are obeyed, individual prosperity and national well-being will be the beneficent result.
Chronologically we have now reached that time in history when the economic world system is coming to judgment and will be swept away as foretold in the 18th chapter of Revelation. Very soon, under the pressure of severe adversity, all the inhabitants of the earth, and His Kingdom people in particular, will recognize the need to heed the call to righteousness for as stated by Isaiah. “When thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.” (Isaiah 26:9) As to timing, it is perhaps only a period of months, not year, when all this will come to pass, for we are about to cress the threshold into the Day of Wrath.
As w face sudden precipitation into the coming Day of Wrath, let us pay careful attention to Isaiah’s exclamation: “O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the Lord.” (Isaiah 2:5) When we, as a nation, become ready and decide to walk in the light, restoring His laws and their administration, the blessings of peace, health, prosperity and happiness will be assured for generations to come. When we heed the call to adopt the law of the Lord. to be administered as the law of our land, it will be well with us and we will become the beneficiaries of God’s bountiful blessings. Moses exclaimed: “I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore, choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.” (Deuteronomy 30:19)
Referring to the commandments, statutes and judgments of the law of the Lord which Moses informs us to keep for our good, he thus emphasizes their outstanding importance: “Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, eve as the Lord my God commanded me...Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the Lord your God is in all things that we call upon him for? And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?” (Deuteronomy 4:5-8)
As we watch the rapid approach of the coming day of judgment for our national sins, we must not overlook that also drawing even nearer is the day when those who have attained unto the goal of an overcome will be summoned to attend the Marriage Supper (This is not the Rapture, which is false doctrine). John is told to write: “Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he (the angel) saith unto me. These are the true sayings of God.” (Revelation 19:9)
Only those who are in attendance at this Supper will inherit the Kingdom, that is, constitute its rulers. It is of them that Zechariah is speaking when the Lord returns in triumph: “And the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.” (Zechariah 14:5)
It must not be forgotten that, while the overcomers are in attendance at the Supper, the Kingdom people on earth will be under the pressure of severe judgment during the Day of Wrath. By the time the Supper ends, these citizens of the Kingdom will have become ready to accept their coming Lord and king. Those in attendance at the Marriage supper thus exclaim: “Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife (Israel) hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in the fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.” (Revelation 19:7-8)
When Christ takes over the Throne of His father David and those, who return with Him at the close of the Marriage Supper, assume rulership in the Kingdom, Isaiah declares: “Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders...Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified.” (Isaiah 6:18, 21)
In that day, now about to come, when the seventh angel should: “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 11:15) Then and then only will the world rest in peace, and tribulation and sorrow will no longer afflict the inhabitants of this globe.
