In today’s world it’s becoming increasingly apparent even to unbelievers that true Christians will obey God rather than corrupted governors, in order to influence their nation rightly.
Why, in 1620, did the little congregation of Pastor John Robinson’s English Christ followers, whom we call Pilgrims, risk their lives to leave their native land to become unintended pioneers of an untamed wilderness in North America? In a word, the motivation was tyranny – Religious tyranny.
Why, in 1776, did 30% of the British colonists in America risk their lives to declare what no people on earth had ever done to resist the monarch who dominated their private lives? Again, their motivation was tyranny – tyranny of their conscience.
At the start of Jesus’ 3-year project of discipling his 12 chosen men, we learn that “…they were astonished at His teaching, for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.” Mark 1:22
In times of relative peace and quiet, the virtue of courage is often unseen and little spoken of. But when the pressure is on; when the conflict of good and evil is raised for all to see; when the dangers and threats of evildoers are brazen and menacing, then courage arises in those who are empowered with personal knowledge and experience.
Jesus communicated confidence with authority, not just because he had personal conviction. He had deep intimate knowledge of the truth that He spoke. He dwelt in the shelter of the Most High. He displayed the epitome of courage because He was in tune with the Father and only did what He saw Him do.
In an age of widespread disinformation and polarized opinions, how can honest, God-fearing people ever expect to see a positive transformation in society?
There’s a strong correlation between community transformation and the humble informed action of godly people in response to truth. The observation of Isaiah’s generation in Israel parallels what we see today, but we have one big difference. He said:
“Our courts oppose the righteous, and justice is nowhere to be found. Truth stumbles in the streets, and honesty has been outlawed. Yes, truth is gone, and anyone who renounces evil is attacked. The LORD looked and was displeased to find there was no justice. He was amazed to see that no one intervened to help the oppressed. So, he himself stepped in to save them with his strong arm, and his justice sustained him.”
Staring in the face of lifetime bondage, does choice still exist to gain knowledge of truth?
One of America’s prominent founding fathers was medical Dr. Benjamin Rush. He gave us an important statement about his view of medical or health freedom. Commenting on Dr Rush, a late 19th century medical doctor honored the memory of this great physician, noting that he proved himself to be a great champion of medical liberty. He urged that the Constitution of the United States should not only provide for religious freedom but also for medical freedom. Dr Rush, in his 18th century manner of speaking English, conveyed the idea that “Laws restricting the practice of the healing arts to one class of physicians and denying to others equal privileges, would constitute the Bastilles of our science.”
That means such laws would be like an over-throw of honest science and replaying the relics of despotism or vestiges of monarchy as with the time of the French Revolution. He clearly thought such actions would be wholly out of place in a republic. https://wafflesatnoon.com/benjamin-rush-quote/
Why are so many reluctant to get the covid “vaccine” And why will my family not get the injection being falsely advertised as necessary for society?
We’ve frequently talked about the Bible’s warnings about ignorance, foolish thinking, apathy, and deception. My whole purpose in preparing our weekly show to help you, our listeners, to reclaim your legacy, is hopefully to equip you with, not only more knowledge about topics impacting the legacy you leave to your next generation, but to help you sharpen your discernment. You can access many referenced historical, scientific and Biblical studies about these at reclaimyourlegacy.com. We all know the hot topics that are on almost everyone’s minds these days. But how many get to hear the truth being exposed almost completely without the help of the major institutions and formerly trusted influencers of the world? You might not have been told yet what’s going on in the medical world to draw millions away from the MSM.
The Bible’s wisdom tells us in Proverbs 18:17 that “The first one to plead his cause seems right, until his neighbor comes and examines him.”
So, let’s dare to honestly evaluate the controversy being used by spiritual powers to wreak confusion and unnecessary division in society and even God’s family.
