The Myth of Christian Governance

by John Greene

bible-trust-YHWH-1An earthly lineage of Christians is a myth. Nobody is truly born a disciple of the Messiah. To become a disciple is a matter of the heart and mind, a matter of personal decision, lifestyle and purpose. It’s certainly not a corporate decision, or one that can be ruled by a group. Scripture is a direct illustration of this proof. Even Yahshua [Jesus] indicated that salvation is personal. Men have invented the rest, even much of the religious ritual that many consider to be the bedrock of their faith. In the world that we live in, any person or organization can claim to be a Christian, and many do. This does not make it so, even if the world does love labels. (Matthew 10:32-42; Luke 9:25, 13:3; Acts 4:12; Hebrews 3:8-11; Revelation 2:11; Jeremiah 32:30; Psalm 78:10-11, 40-42, 56-62; 2 Kings 17:7-8, 18-20; 1 Kings 14:15; 1 Samuel 13:14, 16:7; Amos 9:8; Deuteronomy 4:19, 28:1-68; “Authority: The Real Meaning of Romans 13“; “Foundation of Salvation“; “Consenting to Fables of Men“)

american exceptionalism vanityIn the same way, a nation of people cannot be Christian. Yet, many blow as loud as trumpets in announcing that the United States (or other nations) is Christian – or that it should be. This may be similar in your country – or not. For the longest time, ‘American values’ have been considered by many to be ‘Christian values’. Yet, they never have been, certainly in the sense of scripture – which can be the only measure. How many ‘Christians’ actually read and understand their Bible? This lack of knowledge has created an opportunity. Politicians and religious leaders have attempted to hijack this label of ‘faith’ for their own purposes. A closer look reveals hijacking to be the lie that it is, unless of course, you believe ‘God’ to be the equivalent of the modern incarnation of the American Santa Claus. That description likely fits many of you. (2 Timothy 1:9; 2 Peter 3:9; Titus 2:11-12; Romans 5:18-19, 10:10; Psalm 62:1; Genesis 12:3; “Empire Under the Beast“; “Supporting the Way or the World“; “Delusion & the Tightening Noose of the Beast System“; “Exchanging Delusion for Regeneration“)

Set Apart RuachRemember, to be a disciple is a matter of the heart and mind, a move of Elohim’s Spirit, the Set Apart Ruach [‘Holy Spirit‘]. To be a disciple is to become a new person in the Messiah through the Spirit, learning to express brotherly love and to engage in His Purpose. The idea of brotherly love is often only a convenience in this disassociated world. Even more strange is that fewer than 25% of US Christians even believe in a ‘Holy Spirit’, so personal credibility of being a ‘Christian’ is further strained. Based on polls, nearly an even majority of ‘professed Christians’ don’t believe in Satan either, and by appearances – even a real principle of evil beyond a worldly system of justice. These live in obedience to the world as their master. The majority work to make business corporations, religious corporations and government corporations wealthy, and most often give a small token to someone else to do what they call ‘Christian ministry’. (Matthew 10:22; Mark 13:13; John 14:15-17, 26, 16:12-15; James 1:22-27; Colossians 3:1-14; “Dealing with Separation From Personal Well-Being“; “Holy Spirit 101“; “Christians, Tyranny & the Man of Lawlessness“)

false religious valuesIn the case of the United States, many have pretended to export these ‘Christian values’ over the world, much as Roman Catholics and others have, with the idea of taking this world for ‘God’. This kind of viewpoint is not new. These delusional characters have only succeeded in modeling the world after themselves, yet another idolatry in the face of Father YHWH. Human history shows this kind of religious conquest is an illusion, especially when compared with living as Yahshua [Jesus] instructed. The lifestyle of the Messiah doesn’t make anyone rich or powerful. It brings a disciple success in the eyes of the Father rather than the world. (Philippians 4:8-9; 1 Peter 4:13; Galatians 5:1-7, 19-26, 6:7-8; Revelation 7:17; “Choosing to Serve YHWH, Not Man“; “The Antichrist & War on Reality“; “Disciples of Messiah & the Authority of Man“)

Many of the wicked are big pretenders, in reality bad shepherds that look only after themselves. (Ezekiel 34:1-31; 1 Timothy 1:18-19; Hebrews 3:15-16 ) Many want to believe in the myth of Christian governance because national, political and religious idolatry seems easier and more appealing than obtaining and walking the narrow road provided by YHWH – if they know about this at all. (Matthew 7:13-14; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; “Chasing Useless Pursuits“; “Encouraging Disciples of Light in the Way“; “The Idolatry Factor“; “The False Shepherd & the True Shepherd“; “Which Shepherd Do You Believe?“)

“Take heed that you separate yourselves from false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inside are ravening wolves. You will know to mark them by their fruit. Does anyone gather grapes from a thorn, or a fig from a brier? In this way, all beneficial trees bear honest fruit, but a worthless tree bears harmful fruit. A beneficial tree cannot bear harmful fruit, neither a worthless tree bear honest fruit. All trees that do not bear honest fruit are cut down and cast into fire. In this manner, by their fruit you will know them.

Not all that say to Me, ‘Master, Master,’ enter into the purpose of the Kingdom of Heaven. To the contrary, he that yields the purpose of My Father in Heaven. Many say to Me in that Day, ‘Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and in Your Name cast out devils and in Your Name yielded many miracles? Then at that time I will agree with the authority of Heaven, them I never knew. You! Depart from Me ministers of wickedness.” – Matthew 7:15-23, Project for Truth

teaching truth or fiction?Instead, multitudes have bought into delusions they long to believe, a way to unite with others in a ‘glorious cause’. The trumpeters of the ugly myth of American Exceptionalism and the guardians of nationalistic fables rise up, not simply because they feel fearful, but because they see an opportunity to glean the gullible and ignorant, while placing their philosophical stamp on them. Other peoples and nations mistakenly buy into these notions as well. In this time, many are rising up against what they they see – perhaps even seeing these fables for what they truly are. The truth is that the emperor has no clothes, but in this day the emperor doesn’t need them. Evidence supports that most Americans believe in the ‘deist God’ that never intervenes in human matters, leaving all of us to our own devices. This is the same kind of ‘God’ that most of the founders believed in when they wrote the founding documents, so if anything, the nation has come full circle, if it ever went anywhere to begin with. That’s the way that delusion works on the imaginings of the mind. Delusion justifies and rationalizes until it comes crashing down from the weight of the lies that possess it. That is where this nation and the world is coming to rest, resulting in a period of great unrest and upheaval. Global governance is next fable of power to be shown for what it is. (John 4:24, 8:44; Hebrews 10:35-39; Colossians 2:8; 1 Peter 5:8-9; “Deception of Ages: How People Are Deceived“; “The Parthenon & the Spirit of Humanism“; “The Magi of this Age“)

“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 name Yahshua [Y’shua] is an original language name for Jesus.
He is often referred to simply as the Messiah or Master.

  1. Incredible !!! Thank you for putting together this. I’ve been saying these same things and (attempting to) writing about this for years now, but this is absolutely the best I’ve ever read on the subject. (I must confess that words and writing are not my skills and gifts from the set apart Spirit, so I appreciate those who can and do write)
    I’ve re’blogged’? this on a wordpress site I’m attempting to do and I hope I did not do it wrong and if I did (?) please forgive me. If I’m supposed to get permissions then also, please let me know. I just copied and pasted and put a note in front that I’ve been following you for years. I like to give credit where credit is due and you, John, are worthy of much credit. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
    I’m telling my family and friends and sending them the info so they will (hopefully) read this also and take heed and wake up !
    Thanks again, Thomas
