Christians, Tyranny & the Man of Lawlessness

by John and Ruth Greene

“Now Peter and the apostles answering, said ‘It is necessary to obey Elohim rather than men.’“ – Acts 5:29, direct translation

hope-and-propagandaOne of the largest issues that mainstream Christianity faces today is that it supports lawlessness, most often by simply going along with unrighteousness. It is not set apart from the world. No wonder that in many circles Christians don’t have the level of respect that they might otherwise have. Weak-willed leadership is compounded by the poor leadership of tyrants. Perpetrators of this lawlessness are notorious for placing a public mask of goodness on tyranny by using propaganda. Tyranny is grounded in extreme fear, starting with those that rule. This insecurity rules through increasing oppression, including the increasing use of force. These insecure ‘wise men’ may pretend to rule by ‘equality’ or by elevating the myth of ‘hope.’ The rule of lawlessness is often poised as the ‘rule of law.’ This ‘rule of law’ commonly runs against Elohim’s [‘God’, YHWH] law in scripture, effectively placing the people of the nation and prevailing leadership under YHWH’s ‘curse of nations.’ (Deuteronomy 28:1-14, 15-68; “What is Evil? The Jealousy of Nations & Skeptics“; “Government & the Law of Nations“; “The Secret Weapons of Disciples“)

pseudo justiceMany that believe they are Christians have been encouraged or taught to go along with these leaders under the mistaken and misapplied notion of ‘divine right.’ Leaders are elevated as ‘God’s authority on earth’ by multitudes of professed Christians, without truly considering what scripture has to say, or what YHWH and Yahshua [Jesus] would have dedicated disciples to do. Since the rise of the Roman Catholic Church, scripture has been cleverly translated to support the authority of kings, bishops and the like, as ‘servants of God.’ In this way, disciples of Messiah can easily find themselves separated from the righteousness of their Heavenly Father due to the deception and lies of the world, or through their own inattention and lack of interest. (“Authority: The Real Meaning of Romans 13“; “Justice & Righteousness“; “The Role of Authority in Your Life“; “Discernment the World Doesn’t Have“)

“Discern what is agreeable to the Master and have no fellowship with the barren deeds of darkness, but instead, even rebuke them.” – Ephesians 5:10-11, direct translation

rushing for man's system out of fearInstead of shining the light on unrighteousness, professed Christians often do as the world does, operating automatically under their own power, under constant worldly pressure [without the help of the Holy Spirit [Dedicated, Set Apart Spirit]). Worse, they fall unwittingly into the clutches of those that would perpetrate wickedness or violence on them and others. They may mistake taking personal steps to avoid being ensnared by the world for a lack of Christian love or ‘agape.’ (Matthew 10:16-20, 13:24-30; Romans 12:1-2; Micah 7:1-7 ; Psalm 141:3, 146:3; Proverbs 3:5-6; “Shining Love Toward Others in Righteousness” ; “YHWH is Your Strength“; “Strongholds & the Armor of YHWH“)

blind-authority-wThey don’t think or prepare ahead, developing even minor strategies to avoid becoming a victim of Satan and his agents. They misplace their trust. They believe what the world tells them without truly considering the source or purpose of the information. Many consent to the idea that if the world advertises that something is so, it must be true. Remember, these strangers aren’t your friends, even if you have something in common. Christians fall into this seductive trap of Satan every day. The mindset of the power of nations is often that people are property to be manipulated. If that is the prevailing attitude of lawlessness, everything else is regarded with LESS respect, despite declarations and fine sounding words. (“How Satan Challenges You“; “Destruction is Satan’s Intent“; “Spiritual Authority & Satan’s Wheels of Destruction“: “Attack of Advertising & Progaganda“; “Vanquishing Sin & Oppression“; “Filling Your LIfe with Truth Instead of Deception“)

business-politicsIn the United States, ‘Christian-owned’ businesses have been under increasing pressure to give in to a perverse worldly agenda that demands agreement with immorality (more accurately, the lack of righteousness) in the name of political tolerance and diversity. Suddenly, it’s as if the small business-person can no longer determine who he or she will do business with for any reason, even when it is clear that the adversary-complainer has plenty of options. The bottom line is that this fight is all about manipulation and winning, the world’s way. As a result of judgment missteps and trusting the wrong people, many Christians have been taken to court, and some have lost their livelihoods and investment (or are in danger of doing so). Much violence is being done to Christians as the state seeks to further control what business and commerce does in the name of its’ own brand of morality, which is poor morality at best. This morality certainly isn’t the righteousness of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (“Incentives of Deception“; “Delusion & the Tightening Noose of the Beast System“; “The Image of the Beast“; “Mind Control of the Beast“)

marriage joyThe latest flap on the cultural landscape of the United States is about views on marriage in the states. However, it has been coming for quite some time. Until 1996, regulating marriage was not a power granted to the US Federal government, nor has it been an issue in which the Supreme Court has ever had any jurisdiction. Yet, the Feds brought themselves into authority in this matter, allegedly in the defense of traditional marriage, giving states a ‘right’ that they already had. Yet, many took solace in the definitions and the pretense of uniformity that this straw man provided. Never mind, that this legislation was later declared ‘unconstitutional.’ Once worldly authority pokes a foot in the door, it’s only a matter of time before it takes a mile. So it is with the ‘state approval’ of marriage, which government already regulates and manages through contract law. The end result is not one of freedom, but of enhanced tyranny, a replacement of lawlessness in exchange for a standard of feigned goodness. Under legal precedence that has been increasingly brought to rest since the 1930’s, all law and its previous influence is easily erased by the decisions of judges, especially since you don’t have access to them as a person. (Luke 18:1-8; “Homosexuality: Sex & Personal Identity Crisis“; “Homosexuality as Sin“; “Messenger News – Christian Issues & Reactions“; “The Empire Under the Beast“; “Is YHWH In Your Marriage?“)

Bible knowledgeFor a disciple of the Messiah, scripture must be all that really matters. YHWH originally established marriage as His righteousness, the marriage of one man and one woman, not to be separated. (Genesis 2:18, 23-24; Malachi 2:16-17) Yahshua [Jesus] confirmed that all sex outside of marriage is ‘porneia,’ which is commonly translated as fornication or sexual immorality. (Matthew 5:32, 19:1-9) To Elohim [‘God’, YHWH], all sex outside of established marriage in His sight is porneia, unrighteousness before Him. (“Porneia: Conduct of Disciples in the Sexual Realm“; “Sex is Marriage: Diiscipleship & Singles Ministry“; “Danger of a Reprobate Mind: Sexual Sin and YHWH“)

believe-propagandaChristians have been told that they must be obedient to the political power of men under the idea of ‘divine right,’ a theory enhanced from the clever mistranslation of scripture that was designed to elevate the power of kings and the authority of a profligate ‘church.’ What should a Christian do? Most consent their lives away to the sin of the world, which is just as agents of Satan have planned. You silence is your consent. That’s the ‘law’ in many places. (“YHWH: The Choice to Stay Loyal“; “YHWH’s Track of Righteousness“; “Religion, Politics, Power & Financial Corruption“; “Disciples of Messiah & the Authority of Man“)

justice of man - rule of lawEven the Hebrews had other ideas about dealing with tyranny, despite the fact that this was not routinely addressed. Most often, people choose to go along to get along. But this is not always the case in scripture. For example, Esther was in a position to rise up against tyranny that was brought about by the malevolent wrangling of political forces against her people. Even with her elevated status as queen within the kingdom, she risked her life to take a stand. (Esther 2:16-17, 4:15-17, 5:1-7, 7:1-6) She had plenty of support and prayer (she asked for it), as prayerful action was necessary to protect YHWH’s people under the king. It’s also helpful to note that she did not seek this power, but circumstances brought this about in the name of being ‘law abiding,’ by following the mandates of authority that did not conflict with Elohim’s purpose. Esther and others could not ignore what was being faced, hoping vainly that the malevolent threat would simply disappear. Rulers often fail to consider the wisdom of their choices, being misled by flattery and the like. Because of the sliding ‘justice’ of the world, Christians today find themselves under increasing pressure and tyranny, even being singled out for both. The powers-that-be may publicly deny their actions and policies, but Christians cannot begin to trust them, nor have they been advised to do so by scripture. As the world claims to pursue ‘general goodness’ or the good of the many, disciples are to trust only the authority of YHWH, Yahshua [Jesus] and the Holy Spirit [Dedicated, Set Apart Spirit]. (“Redefining Good“; “A Yoke of Slavery or Freedom“; “Breaking Strongholds of False Authority“; “The Modern Life Culture Crisis“; “Disciples: Focused on the Messiah & His Purpose“)

prayer and contemplationDisciples must fully realize the truth in Isaiah 59. The Father’s hand is not short, nor does He fail to hear His people. Yet, the perversity of the world is what can easily separate disciples from Elohim. When that happens, He may turn His face away from the blots in corrupted lives, giving up people to their own sin. Disciples that were dedicated can become defiled with the blood of the world, the lies of perversity that are not Elohim’s righteousness. Righteousness and righteous ruling is far off. They look for light, but can only see darkness that they have had a hand in supporting. They are blind in a wilderness of man’s making, even while it is proclaimed as an oasis of plenty. People moan for right-ruling, but there is none. Ignorance and hard-hearted attitudes of rebellion are being multiplied against them as sins of darkness mount up for those that give blind consent and those that express outright revolt against the righteousness of YHWH. To the world, ‘God’ is merely a god, one of many that they give occasional imagination to. They will be judged by their life of falsehood, as will all of mankind. (Isaiah 59:1-13; “The Magi of this Age“; “Knowing Where You Stand on YHWH’s Threshing Floor“; “The Idolatry Factor“; “Pursue Righteousness“)

“Righteous ruling has fallen away. Righteousness continues from out of remote places. Even truth has stumbled in broad places. Integrity is unable to enter because truth fails in battle. Departing from evil makes one a prey. YHWH sees with an eye of displeasure that there is no righteousness in ruling.” – Isaiah 59:14-15, direct translation

path - whose track of righteousnessMany Christians don’t know about truly living for the righteousness of YHWH, but call for what is proclaimed by the world as ‘justice.’ They don’t know what the righteousness of Elohim is. They look to the world over YHWH’s truth, having adopted the vanity of iniquity. What they create and support is the poison of the world, running on the wide road of destruction. They do not stand up for the righteousness of YHWH and many do not know what this is. Professed Christians do not wear His cloak of righteousness, nor set themselves apart to Elohim. Yet, those that stand up for righteousness are not guilty of the sins of their fathers. Yes, this might seem to be radical thinking, but is nothing less than what scripture says. (Matthew 7:6, 13; Romans 6:1-16; Isaiah 59:17-21; Ezekiel 18:1-32; “Your Refuge is Important“; “Trusting in YHWH Instead of Princes“)

police-state-powerForcing Christians (whether in name, obedience, or both) to honor and uphold perverse acts, to be involved in matters against personal will and conscience, is nothing less than tyranny, oppression of the worst sort. To object because of ‘conscience’ is sometimes permitted, but rarely looked upon with regard. This is because personal ‘rights’ tend to erode the power of the state or other authorities that reside under the state. The history of legal precedence has been revised to create more authority by powers across the globe. It is commonly said that legal precedence comes from past judicial court decisions. However, over the last century, legal precedence has developed into another animal, becoming an excuse – an opposite reality. In the United States, judges routinely violate ‘stare decisis’ – ruling against the established law of previous decisions and of higher courts. They create their own new precedent law by degrees. In other words, they ‘stretch’ the law and create new ‘boundaries.’ Yes, this is ‘illegal,’ but judges do this anyway. Power refuses to be reigned in. Law becomes abusive, the tool of demons.

idolatry-of-the-stateThe same thing has been happening in the ‘executive branch’ of government since Abraham Lincoln began to rule through executive orders. Both have become tools to twist governance to the wills of those in power, short-sighted as they are, or upright as they may claim to be. This twisting of governance is telling for a modern power that claims to be the ‘policeman of the world.’ As long as this is of use to greater authority, this prideful governance will continue. Even though history says otherwise, many professed Christians stubbornly cling to the idea that the state and the ‘rule of law’ is somehow their friend by ‘divine right,’ that they have more in common that unites them. They may see the state and the ‘rule of law’ as ‘God’s righteousness.’ Yet, nothing could be further from the truth. (“What’s Coming After Globalism: Expanding Rule & Acceptance“; “Spiritual Warfare: Genetics That Rule Your Life“; “Being Set Apart Makes You Aware of Sin“; “The Abomination That Causes Desolation“)

hourglass-timeYHWH Elohim carefully spells out His righteousness in scripture. These pronouncements, examples in scripture, and those people mentioned in it, help to guide disciples to live out their lives. When Yahshua [Jesus] left the earthly scene, the Holy Spirit became the Counselor for disciples. Through the age and in this day, this Counselor continues to be rejected or diminished by multitudes. Yet, this is what disciples of Messiah must personally overcome as Satan and his agents rise up to steal, kill and destroy. (John 10:1-30, 14:15-17, 26, 16:7-15; Matthew 24:4-24, 45-51; Romans 5:1-5; “The Reality of Judgment & Your Preparation“; “Overcoming Satanic Attack“; “Overcoming Fear During Tough Times“)

“For YAHWEH so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that everyone believing into Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, HRB
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your righteousness. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. May it be as you have promised!
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
