We recognize no soverign but God, and no king but Jesus!” -John Hancock, April 18, 1775First, think of this, the greatest man in History is Jesus! He had no servants. Yet, they called Him master.
He had no degree. Yet, they called Him Teacher. He had no medicines. Yet, they called Him Healer. He had no army. Yet, earthly Kings feared Him. He won no military battles. Yet, He conquered the world. He committed no crime. Yet, they crucified Him.
He was buried in a tomb. Yet, He lives today.When you look to Scripture to identify what the King of kings looks and acts like (Matthew 7:16), it is of note that He was not surrounded by armed secret service, nor did He have 20-30 others on donkeys protecting the people to which he came to serve (John 1:11).His trip didn’t cost taxpayers approximately $156,820, or $2,614 per minute to move from place to place.
He simply trusted God to show the world who He was and what He came into the world to accomplish (John 10:38; Luke 19:10; Matthew 1:21). Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass. And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,
And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon.And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest. –Matthew 21:5-9And this is what “
We the people” in this country are to emulate. Christ the King! (John 14:6; Matthew 21:5-9)Second, the first president of the United States, George Washington, was hailed as “first in war, first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen.”
He led by example as he followed the Christ (1 Corinthians 11:1).If you know your history you know that during the Revolutionary War, George Washington didn’t send someone else to go in his stead; he took responsibility and went himself to lead the call for independence on the behalf of the country and the people he loved.
During this time, he had little to no money to fight the war, but he fought on with what he had and beat back the tyrant King George.George Washington was also known as the man who could not die in battle.
He was shot at several times with bullet holes in his jacket, yet he survived unscathed. He told his family, “By the all-powerful dispensations of providence, I have been protected beyond all human probability or expectation.” Like King David, God protected Washington from his enemies (Psalm 71:3).[YouTube Video]Third, in the past half-century, we have seen the corrupt in government slowly usurp their authority and declare war on the American people. The proof is found in the over the top methods of “protecting” the president and how they have risen to ridiculous measures. One has to ask the obvious question, who does the President work for?Anyone who travels to Washington, DC will know what I am talking about. When the president’s motorcade goes through town, armed militant officers block off every road and any building the president enters is searched over with a fine-toothed comb.Why would they need to do this if they have the support of American people?The Secret ServiceThe Secret Service was originally created in 1865 to suppress counterfeit currency.
It had nothing to do with the president’s safety until 1907, when Congress passed the Sundry Civil Expenses Act, which now meant that two men would be in full-time charge of the president’s safety.The Secret Service now has 3,200 employees, and whenever the president leaves the White House, the Secret Service calls on other federal, state, and local agencies to heighten security measures.Until Harry Truman’s presidency, former presidents were dropped off at their homes and were provided no special pension, security, or other benefits.
They were simply told “Thank you for your service and have a good day.” They would become an average American citizen, just like those they served.As a matter of fact, President Truman would take daily walks around Washington, DC with a bodyguard or two in tow shaking the hands of his constituents.What has happened since then?
When presidents work for the people, they feel safe enough to walk up converse with them; if at this point you are saying that things have gotten much worse in this country, you simply prove my point. Corruption in America is an exhibition and an expose of what the government is and is not doing.However, when they work for special interests and are being treated as crowned kings (which they are not), they suddenly feel that they need to be protected from their constituents. Is the writing on the wall? Yes, indeed it is.Look at the ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
