THE SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD

GOD'S SOVEREIGNTY DEFINED

by A.W. PINK

"Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is Thine; Thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and Thou art exalted as Head above all" (1 Chron. 29:11).

The Sovereignty of God is an expression that once was generally understood. It was a phrase commonly used in religious literature. It was a theme frequently expounded in the pulpit. It was a truth which brought comfort to many hearts, and gave virility and stability to Christian character. But, today, to make mention of God's Sovereignty is, in many quarters, to speak in an unknown tongue. Were we to announce from the average pulpit that the subject of our discourse would be the Sovereignty of God, it would sound very much as though we had borrowed a phrase from one of the dead languages. Alas! that it should be so. Alas! that the doctrine which is the key to history, the interpreter of Providence, the warp and woof of Scripture, and the foundation of Christian theology should be so sadly neglected and so little understood.

The Sovereignty of God. What do we mean by this expression? We mean the supremacy of God, the kingship of God, the god-hood of God. To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that God is God. To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that He is the Most High, doing according to His will in the army of Heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth, so that none can stay His hand or say unto Him what doest Thou? (Dan. 4:35). To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that He is the Almighty, the Possessor of all power in Heaven and earth, so that none can defeat His counsels, thwart His purpose, or resist His will (Psa. 115:3). To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that He is "The Governor among the nations" (Psa. 22:28), setting up kingdoms, overthrowing empires, and determining the course of dynasties as pleaseth Him best. To say that God is Sovereign is to declare that He is the "Only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords" (1 Tim. 6:15). Such is the God of the Bible.

How different is the God of the Bible from the God of modern Christendom! The conception of Deity which prevails most widely today, even among those who profess to give heed to the Scriptures, is a miserable caricature, a blasphemous travesty of the Truth. The God of the twentieth century is a helpless, effeminate being who commands the respect of no really thoughtful man. The God of the popular mind is the creation of maudlin sentimentality. The God of many a present-day pulpit is an object of pity rather than of awe-inspiring reverence. To say that God the Father has purposed the salvation of all mankind, that God the Son died with the express intention of saving the whole human race, and that God the Holy Spirit is now seeking to win the world to Christ; when, as a matter of common observation, it is apparent that the great majority of our fellowmen are dying in sin, and passing into a hopeless eternity; is to say that God the Father is disappointed, that God the Son is dissatisfied, and that God the Holy Spirit is defeated. We have stated the issue baldly, but there is no escaping the conclusion. To argue that God is "trying His best" to save all mankind, but that the majority of men will not let Him save them, is to insist that the will of the Creator is impotent, and that the will of the creature is omnipotent. To throw the blame, as many do, upon the Devil, does not remove the difficulty, for if Satan is defeating the purpose of God, then, Satan is Almighty and God is no longer the Supreme Being.

To declare that the Creator's original plan has been frustrated by sin, is to dethrone God. To suggest that God was taken by surprise in Eden and that He is now attempting to remedy an unforeseen calamity, is to degrade the Most High to the level of a finite, erring mortal. To argue that man is a free moral agent and the determiner of his own destiny, and that therefore he has the power to checkmate his Maker, is to strip God of the attribute of Omnipotence. To say that the creature has burst the bounds assigned by his Creator, and that God is now practically a helpless Spectator before the sin and suffering entailed by Adam's fall, is to repudiate the express declaration of Holy Writ, namely, "Surely the wrath of man shall praise Thee: the remainder of wrath shalt Thou restrain" (Psa. 76:10). In a word, to deny the Sovereignty of God is to enter upon a path which, if followed to its logical terminus, is to arrive at blank atheism.

The Sovereignty of the God of Scripture is absolute, irresistible, infinite. When we say that God is Sovereign we affirm His right to govern the universe which He has made for His own glory, just as He pleases. We affirm that His right is the right of the Potter over the clay, i. e., that He may mold that clay into whatsoever form He chooses, fashioning out of the same lump one vessel unto honor and another unto dishonor. We affirm that He is under no rule or law outside of His own will and nature, that God is a law unto Himself, and that He is under no obligation to give an account of His matters to any.

Sovereignty characterizes the whole Being of God. He is Sovereign in all His attributes. He is Sovereign in the exercise of His power. His power is exercised as He wills, when He wills, where He wills. This fact is evidenced on every page of Scripture. For a long season that power appears to be dormant, and then it is put forth in irresistible might. Pharaoh dared to hinder Israel from going forth to worship Jehovah in the wilderness-what happened? God exercised His power, His people were delivered and their cruel task-masters slain. But a little later, the Amalekites dared to attack these same Israelites in the wilderness, and what happened? Did God put forth His power on this occasion and display His hand as He did at the Red Sea? Were these enemies of His people promptly overthrown and destroyed? No, on the contrary, the Lord swore that He would "have war with Amalek from generation to generation" (Exo. 17:16). Again, when Israel entered the land of Canaan, God's power was signally displayed. The city of Jericho barred their progress-what happened? Israel did not draw a bow nor strike a blow: the Lord stretched forth His hand and the walls fell down flat. But the miracle was never repeated! No other city fell after this manner. Every other city had to be captured by the sword!

Many other instances might be adduced illustrating the Sovereign exercise of God's power. Take one other example. God put forth His power and David was delivered from Goliath, the giant; the mouths of the lions were closed and Daniel escaped unhurt; the three Hebrew children were cast into the burning fiery furnace and came forth unharmed and unscorched. But God's power did not always interpose for the deliverance of His people, for we read: "And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: they were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword; they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented" (Heb. 11:36, 37). But why? Why were not these men of faith delivered like the others? Or, why were not the others suffered to be killed like these? Why should God's power interpose and rescue some and not the others? Why allow Stephen to be stoned to death, and then deliver Peter from prison?

God is Sovereign in the delegation of His power to others. Why did God endow Methuselah with a vitality which enabled him to outlive all his contemporaries? Why did God impart to Samson a physical strength which no other human has ever possessed? Again; it is written, "But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is He that giveth thee power to get wealth" (Deut. 8:18), but God does not bestow this power on all alike. Why not? Why has He given such power to men like Morgan, Carnegie, Rockefeller? The answer to all of these questions is, Because God is Sovereign, and being Sovereign He does as He pleases.

God is Sovereign in the exercise of His mercy. Necessarily so, for mercy is directed by the will of Him that showeth mercy. Mercy is not a right to which man is entitled. Mercy is that adorable attribute of God by which He pities and relieves the wretched. But under the righteous government of God no one is wretched who does not deserve to be so. The objects of mercy, then, are those who are miserable, and all misery is the result of sin, hence the miserable are deserving of punishment not mercy. To speak of deserving mercy is a contradiction of terms.

God bestows His mercies on whom He pleases and withholds them as seemeth good unto Himself. A remarkable illustration of this fact is seen in the manner that God responded to the prayers of two men offered under very similar circumstances. Sentence of death was passed upon Moses for one act of disobedience, and he besought the Lord for a reprieve. But was his desire gratified? No; he told Israel, "The LORD was wroth with me for your sakes, and would not hear me: and the LORD said unto me, Let it suffice thee" (Deut. 3:26). Now mark the second case: "In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz came to him, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live. Then he turned his face to the wall, and prayed unto the LORD, saying, I beseech Thee, O LORD, remember now how I have walked before Thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in Thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore. And it came to pass, afore Isaiah was gone out into the middle court, that the word of the LORD came to him, saying, Turn again, and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people, Thus saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third day thou shalt go unto the house of the LORD. And I will add unto thy days fifteen years" (2 Kings 20:1-6). Both of these men had the sentence of death in themselves, and both prayed earnestly unto the Lord for a reprieve: the one wrote: "The Lord would not hear me," and died; but to the other it was said, "I have heard thy prayer," and his life was spared. What an illustration and exemplification of the truth expressed in Romans 9:15!-"For He saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion."

The Sovereign exercise of God's mercy-pity shown to the wretched-was displayed when Jehovah became flesh and tabernacled among men. Take one illustration. During one of the Feasts of the Jews, the Lord Jesus went up to Jerusalem. He came to the Pool of Bethesda where lay "a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water." Among this "great multitude" there was "a certain man which had an infirmity thirty and eight years." What happened? "When Jesus saw him He, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole? The impotent man answer Him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but when I am coming, another steppeth down before me. Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked" (John 5:3-9). Why was this one man singled out from all the others? We are not told that he cried "Lord, have mercy on me." There is not a word in the narrative which intimates that this man possessed any qualifications which entitled him to receive special favor. Here then was a case of the Sovereign exercise of Divine mercy, for it was just as easy for Christ to heal the whole of that "great multitude" as this one "certain man." But He did not. He put forth His power and relieved the wretchedness of this one particular sufferer, and for some reason known only to Himself, He declined to do the same for the others. Again, we say, what an illustration and exemplification of Romans 9:15!-"I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion."

God is Sovereign in the exercise of His love. Ah! that is a hard saying, who then can receive it? It is written, "A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from Heaven" (John 3:27). When we say that God is Sovereign in the exercise of His love, we mean that He loves whom He chooses. God does not love everybody*; if He did, He would love the Devil. Why does not God love the Devil? Because there is nothing in him to love; because there is nothing in him to attract the heart of God. Nor is there anything to attract God's love in any of the fallen sons of Adam, for all of them are, by nature, "children of wrath" (Eph. 2:3). If then there is nothing in any member of the human race to attract God's love,

*John 3:16 will be examined later.

and if, notwithstanding, He does love some, then it necessarily follows that the cause of His love must be found in Himself, which is only another way of saying that the exercise of God's love towards the fallen sons of men is according to His own good pleasure.

In the final analysis, the exercise of God's love must he traced back to His Sovereignty or, otherwise, He would love by rule; and if He loved by rule, then is He under a law of love, and if He is under a law of love then is He not supreme, but is Himself ruled by law. "But," it may be asked, "Surely you do not deny that God loves the entire human family?" We reply, it is written, "Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated" (Rom. 9:13). If then God loved Jacob and hated Esau, and that before they were born or had done either good or evil, then the reason for His love was not in them, but in Himself.

That the exercise of God's love is according to His own Sovereign pleasure is also clear from the language of Ephesians 1:3-5, where we read, "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: According as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love. Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself according to the good pleasure of His will." It was "in love" that God the Father predestined His chosen ones unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, "according"-according to what? According to some excellency He discovered in them? No. What then? According to what He foresaw they would become? No; mark carefully the inspired answer-"According to the good pleasure of His will."

We are not unmindful of the fact that men have invented the distinction between God's love of complacency and His love of compassion, but this is an invention pure and simple. Scripture terms the latter God's "pity" (see Matt. 18:33), and "He is kind unto the unthankful and the evil" (Luke 6:35)!

God is Sovereign in the exercise of His grace. This of necessity, for grace is favor shown to the undeserving, yea, to the Hell-deserving. Grace is the antithesis of justice. Justice demands the impartial enforcement of law. Justice requires that each shall receive his legitimate due, neither more nor less. Justice bestows no favors and is no respecter of persons. Justice, as such, shows no pity and knows no mercy. But after justice has been fully satisfied, grace flows forth. Divine grace is not exercised at the expense of justice, but "grace reigns through righteousness" (Rom. 5:21), and if grace "reigns," then is grace Sovereign.

Grace has been defined as the unmerited favor of God*; and if unmerited, then none can claim it as their inalienable right. If grace is unearned and undeserved, then none are entitled to it. If grace is a gift, then none can demand it. Therefore, as salvation is by grace, the free gift of God, then He bestows it on whom He pleases. Because salvation is by grace, the very chief of sinners is not beyond the reach of Divine mercy. Because salvation is by grace, boasting is excluded and God gets all the glory.

The Sovereign exercise of grace is illustrated on nearly every page of Scripture. The Gentiles are left to walk in their own ways while Israel becomes the covenant people of Jehovah. Ishmael the firstborn is cast out comparatively unblest, while Isaac the son of his parents' old age is made the child of promise. Esau the generous-hearted and forgiving-spirited is denied the blessing, though he sought it carefully with tears, while the worm Jacob receives the inheritance and is fashioned into a vessel of honor. So in the New Testament. Divine Truth is hidden from the wise and prudent, but is revealed to babes. The Pharisees and Sadducees

*An esteemed friend who kindly read through this book in its manuscript form, and to whom we are indebted for a number of excellent suggestions, has pointed out that grace is something more than "unmerited favor." To feed a tramp who calls on me is "unmerited favor," but it is scarcely grace. But suppose that after robbing me I should feed this starving tramp-that would be "grace." Grace, then, is favor shown where there is positive de-merit in the one receiving it.

are left to go their own way, while publicans and harlots are drawn by the cords of love.

In a remarkable manner Divine grace was exercised at the time of the Saviour's birth. The incarnation of God's Son was one of the greatest events in the history of the universe, and yet its actual occurrence was not made known to all mankind; instead, it was specially revealed to the Bethlehem shepherds and wise men of the East. And this was prophetic and indicative of the entire course of this dispensation, for even today Christ is not made known to all. It would have been an easy matter for God to have sent a company of angels to every nation and to have announced the birth of His Son. But He did not. God could have readily attracted the attention of all mankind to the "star"; but He did not. Why? Because God is Sovereign and dispenses His favors as He pleases. Note particularly the two classes to whom the birth of the Saviour was made known, namely, the most unlikely classes-illiterate shepherds and heathen from a far country. No angel stood before the Sanhedrin and announced the advent of Israel's Messiah! No "star" appeared unto the scribes and lawyers as they, in their pride and self-righteousness, searched the Scriptures! They searched diligently to find out where He should be born, and yet it was not made known to them when He was actually come. What a display of Divine Sovereignty-the illiterate shepherds singled out for peculiar honor, and the learned and eminent passed by! And why was the birth of the Saviour revealed to these foreigners, and not to those in whose midst He was born? See in this a wonderful foreshadowing of God's dealings with our race throughout the entire Christian dispensation-Sovereign in the exercise of His grace, bestowing His favors on whom He pleases, often on the most unlikely and unworthy. *

It has been pointed out to us that God's Sovereignty was signally displayed in His choice of the place where His Son was born. Not to Greece or Italy did the Lord of Glory come, but to the insignificant land of Palestine! Not in Jerusalem-the royal city-was Immanuel born, but in Bethlehem, which was "little among the thousands (of towns and villages) in Judah" (Micah 5:2)! And it was in despised Nazareth that He grew up!! Truly, God's ways are not ours.

'Lose Christianity or face expulsion' Georgia student told to read 'gay' lit, attend 'pride parade,' change beliefs

 
 

Jen K
A lawsuit against Augusta State University in Georgia alleges school officials essentially gave a graduate student in counseling the choice of giving up her Christian beliefs or being expelled from the graduate program.
School officials Mary Jane Anderson-Wiley, Paulette Schenck and Richard Deaner demanded student Jen Keeton, 24, go through a "remediation" program after she asserted homosexuality is a behavioral choice, not a "state of being" as a professor said, according to the complaint.
Also named as defendants in the case that developed in May and June are other administrators and the university system's board of regents.
The remediation program was to include "sensitivity training" on homosexual issues, additional outside study on literature promoting homosexuality and the plan that she attend a "gay pride parade" and report on it.
The lawsuit, filed by attorneys working with the Alliance Defense Fund, asserted the school cannot violate the Constitution by demanding that a person's beliefs be changed.
"ASU faculty have promised to expel Miss Keeton from the graduate Counselor Education program, not because of poor academic showing or demonstrated deficiencies in clinical performance, but simply because she has communicated both inside and outside the classroom that she holds to Christian ethical convictions on matters of human sexuality and gender identity," the law firm explained.
School spokeswoman Kathy Schose today declined to address the allegations in the case but agreed to discuss the counselor teaching program in general.
She cited the American Counseling Association' s code of ethics and said students would be required to adopt its provisions.
"There is a code of ethics that govern counselors," she said. "They have to abide by the code of the profession."
Ethics codes generally govern behavior, and Schose denied the school was attempting to alter any student's beliefs or moral values.
But the lawsuit specifically charges the faculty members targeted Keeton's biblically based belief system and values, not her behavior regarding the treatment of any clients, which had not yet happened.
"Schenck told Miss Keeton that it was unethical for her to believe that her convictions should also be shared by other persons. … Schenck explained that while Miss Keeton was free to have points of view about how she personally should conduct and define herself, she may not believe that others should adopt the standards she personally is convinced are true," the lawsuit said.

Left to right: Richard Deaner, Paulette Schenck, Mary Jane Anderson-Wiley
"Anderson-Wiley confirmed that Miss Keeton will not be able to successfully complete the remediation plan and thus complete the ASU counseling program unless she commits to affirming the propriety of gay and lesbian relationships if such an opportunity arises in her future professional efforts," it continued.
ADF Senior Counsel David French contended a public university student "shouldn't be threatened with expulsion for being a Christian and refusing to publicly renounce her faith, but that's exactly what's happening here."
"Simply put, the university is imposing thought reform," he said.  "Abandoning one's own religious beliefs should not be a precondition at a public university for obtaining a degree. This type of leftist zero-tolerance policy is in place at far too many universities, and it must stop. Jennifer's only crime was to have the beliefs that she does."
Keeton's own e-mail response to the faculty members who allegedly were pressuring her to adopt a pro-homosexual belief system defines the dispute.
"At times you said that I must alter my beliefs because they are unethical. … other times you said that I can keep my beliefs so long as they are only personal and I don't believe that anyone else should believe like me. But that is just another way of saying that I must alter my beliefs, because my beliefs are about absolute truth. ….. in order to finish the counseling program you are requiring me to alter my objective beliefs and also to commit now that if I ever may have a client who wants me to affirm their decision to have an abortion or engage in gay, lesbian, or transgender behavior, I will do that. I can't alter my biblical beliefs, and I will not affirm the morality of those behaviors in a counseling situation," she wrote.
Faculty members had demanded she "attend at least three workshops … which emphasize … diversity training sensitive toward working with GLBTQ populations. " They also wanted her to "develop" her knowledge of homosexuality by reading 10 articles and increasing her exposure to homosexuals and lesbians by attending "the Gay Pride Parade."
According to the complaint documentation, which also seeks a preliminary injunction in the case, Keeton asked Anderson-Wiley how her Christian convictions are any less acceptable than those of a Buddhist or Muslim student. Anderson-Wiley responded, "Christians see this population as sinners."
The complaint alleges Anderson-Wiley specifically told Keeton she was being asked to alter some of her beliefs. The "remediation" program included a statement that Keeton would be dismissed from the program if she chose not to comply, the lawsuit said.
"Unless and until defendant's unconstitutional speech-regulating policies and threatened … actions against Miss Keeton are enjoined, Miss Keeton will suffer and continue to suffer irreparable injury to her constitutional rights," the lawsuit said.
Among the alleged violations of the First and Fourteenth Amendments are viewpoint discrimination, compelled speech, equal protection and freedom of speech, it said.
"By conditioning Miss Keeton's continued enrollment in the ASU school counselor masters degree program on her waiver of rights to speech and free exercise of religion … by requiring that she alter her beliefs and speech, and that she … commit to affirm in a hypothetical future context the ethical propriety of transgender and homosexual identification and behavior by others, as well as other values and behaviors she now disapproves, and which violate her religion convictions, defendants have imposed an unconstitutional condition on Miss Keeton," the complaint alleges.
"The First Amendment never permits the government to penalize beliefs in this manner," the complaint said.
The ADF said it also is litigating a case involving a Georgia counselor fired by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention because she would not agree to affirm homosexual behavior. While an earlier similar case at Missouri State has been resolved, there is another in which Eastern Michigan University is defendant on similar allegations.
In the Missouri State case, a social work professor, Frank Kauffman, eventually was placed on leave as part of a settlement of the lawsuit brought on behalf of student Emily Brooker. The student had refused his assignment to lobby on behalf of homosexual adoptions because it violated her religious beliefs. She then was brought up on ethics charges in the school.
The settlement also included monetary damages and the removal of the charges against her from her record. The school's own commissioned conclusion in the case found "many students and faculty stated a fear of voicing differing opinions. … In fact, 'bullying' was used by both students and faculty to characterize specific faculty."


Julea Ward
In the still-pending case involving Eastern Michigan, lawmakers there considered calling top school officials on the carpet after they expelled from a counseling program a Christian student who refused to argue in support of the homosexual lifestyle.
As WND reported, trouble began for master's program student Julea Ward when she refused to accept a client whose issue concerned a homosexual relationship.
The school expelled her from the counseling program March 12, 2009, for refusing to abrogate her own personal religious beliefs and support the homosexual lifestyle.
Since then, Ward has brought a lawsuit through the Alliance Defense Fund Center for Academic Freedom.
Members of the Michigan Senate shortly later approved legislation that includes a provision calling on university counseling programs to evaluate and affirm how they can accommodate the religious beliefs of students.
State Rep. Tom McMillin told WND at the time the case was "extremely alarming," and there was growing support for an effort to penalize universities that don't accommodate religious beliefs.
"This is a state-taxpayer- supported university," he said. "She's got a court case. Hopefully that will be resolved."
In the case, the judge refused to dismiss the complaint, determining there were "genuine issues of material fact" about the school's "true motivations" for dismissing Ward from the program. Further, the judge concluded, the student's actions to avoid in advance a counseling session for which she had reservations probably followed professional ethical guidelines.

Babylon of the West: The American Prophecy

Jesus Christ in Stained GlassImage by Thomas Hawk via Flickr

By Teresa Carr

One history book that comes to mind to whoever has read it and understand it that it can change the way you look at our present society. Gibbon’s Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire is a great work of underlying ideas for a moral and ethical life. This should be required reading for every American to give a clear look at the decline of the United States of America. We need to deepen our self-knowledge and wisdom of our errors and know how to correct them. Ancient Rome and America are strikingly parallel in the events that have shaped the condition of their history and ethics. In the past two decades America has been declining in family values, Christian values and the ecclesiastical structure of the church. America has also increased in pleasures and entertainment and the increase of spending in the military. The resemblance has been shockingly amazing. It is because without God as the foundation of social, economic and political progress our nation is doomed as the same fate as ancient Rome.

Everyday we read our newspaper with stories filled of trouble, discontent, and hopelessness. Isn’t it about time to turn the tables and change that by trusting in the One who created the heavens and earth? If we don’t and just ignore all the percussions of a down sliding society moving worldwide we will perish in our own pride and greed. We are living under the same political atmosphere as Israel experience in the days of Christ during the time of the Roman oppression. In Christ’s day the time was ripe for a promised Messiah to come and deliver His people from their oppression. Today we’re living in the time of this same oppression. In 2005, the economy was at it’s lowest.  Prices in oil, natural gas, fruits and vegetables, medical assistance soared. The status of the middle-class was slowly melting away. America is under constant threat of terrorism not only foreign but the uncertainty of the American government and the presence of totalitarianism ever lurking and leaking into every part of our society. There has been much drastic change in modern times it has become much like Babylon in many ways. Little over 200 years ago our forefathers fought against this very threat that attacks over freedom and liberty day by day. Our freedom to worship the one true God who brought us into America is being threatened by those in the government, atheists and fanatic pagan religions whose agenda is to create a socialist society without Jesus Christ. Little do the unrighteous know that in the heart of every believer lives the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ. No other force on earth can remove it, unless we allow it to happen. It is in the heart of the believer Jesus lives.

Our future generations are being controlled and destroyed by the money hungry media as they peddle their propaganda from Hell. Since the invention of the T.V. and motion pictures it has changed our society and the way we live we will be remembered in history as the United Media Wasteland of America. America is also a nation that depends too much on the imports of other countries. How we have come away from being self-sufficient has mostly been control by America’s own rogue government. America’s agreement with the enemy has made it susceptible to weakening the foundation of sovereignty. It also leaves open America’s vulnerability to enemy countries out to destroy the U.S. What America needs is to rethink where are we going in the future, and will there still be a United States of America? Towards the end of the 1890’s and beginning of the 20th century America was isolationist and didn’t depend on any country outside its borders. Two great oceans surrounded us and we seemed invincible until World War II began. What happened was the beginning of America’s troubles. The sound of Washington’s farewell address resonates even today. If God’s true church does not act now for the future sovereignty of America as a Christian nation we will perish. The enemy is like the menacing Haman who will annihilate a republic nation of freedom and liberty like the Jewish race in the story of Queen Esther. Do you know what that enemy is? It is our lack of knowledge. In Hosea, God said that my people are destroyed because of it. This wisdom and knowledge can only be obtained through Jesus Christ our Lord. You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.

Obama on Trial with Columbia University

WE THE PEOPLE, are the legitimate government of the United States of America. Only an uninformed person, an illiterate person, an ignorant person or a person committing Treason can argue against that.
The President, Congressmen, and Governors and all elected people are just hired help. They are part-time employees of WE THE PEOPLE.
Politicians are simply day laborers who come out on the corner every couple of years to beg a job. And they consistently lie to get that job.
WE THE PEOPLE have had enough. No more free rides. Career politicians all across America are losing their jobs. They work for us. We don’t work for them. We are not in this World to please them. They are here to please us. We don’t exist to enrich them. They were created by WE THE PEOPLE to enrich our lives. Politicians did not create our lives. We created theirs, and enabled them to watch over us, for our benefit, not theirs.
Throughout this article, I bold and italicize WE THE PEOPLE because I want to get it through our politician’s heads that our government was created willingly, created by, created for, and created of WE THE PEOPLE.
If they don’t get that through their heads soon, they may get something else through their heads.
The situation is: The temporary help is lying to The People, spending their money, imposing un-Constitutional laws, assaulting The People, criminalizing children, catering to criminal illegal aliens, using The People’s money to bail out corrupt organizations and instigating many other inhumane and un-America concepts against us and against other Nations, with a President saying, “I don’t care about public opinion.”
WE THE PEOPLE do care.
The Indictment against Obama and Columbia University alleges:
1. Columbia Univ. and Obama conspired to defraud and commit wire fraud and mail fraud.
2. Columbia Univ. knowingly concealed the fact that Obama is NOT a natural born citizen.
3. Columbia Univ. aided in obstructing justice.
4. Obama fraudulently obtained office of the President of The United States gaining access to sensitive materials, posing a danger to national security.
5. The prosecution dropped the charges of treason and espionage to avoid complications with a death sentence.

Obama, the Community Organizer, tells people to organize. That just shows how brain dead he really is.
WE THE PEOPLE did organize……234 years ago. And now WE THE PEOPLE have organized against him and his policies that are totally against anything America stands for, as well as being detrimental to the World populations.
WE THE PEOPLE is the ultimate in Community Organizations. It is the largest and possibly oldest Community Organization in America. Today, this organization has more operatives, is better funded and has better intelligence gathering capabilities than ALL intelligence agencies on Earth. And, they have more guns than the opposition has.
In a matter of just a few weeks, a very small faction of this Community Organization, The Tea Party, organized and delivered over 2 million people on the steps of the Capitol in Washington D.C.. If they had been oriented towards violence, they could have easily taken every Congressman, Obama and Joseph Biden out on the street and tarred and feathered them and permanently removed them from our offices. There is no force in America that could have stopped that from happening.
There is no force that could have stopped them from hanging these traitors, burning their diseased bodies and grinding up their bones to be used as fertilizer for a “Victory Garden” at the foot of the Washington Monument.
Take a look at a video of the Tea Party in Washington D.C. in March 2010. Look at the signs people are holding. Major News is very busy telling us the Tea Party rally was full of racist signs. Do you see any ??
Another minor note: When Obama was inaugurated in Washington D.C., his supporters left tons of trash. The Tea Party cleaned up all of their litter before they left.
Compare the ground around the Tea Party rally in the video above, to the ground during Obama’s inauguration
Watch this lady’s 5 minute video
Then ask yourself: Who would you rather invite to a picnic? Tea Party members or Obama supporters?
The pure, unadulterated truth of the ages is: WE THE PEOPLE formed the original States. The individual States, in mutual agreement, created the Federal Government. The Feds didn’t create us, we created them. WE THE PEOPLE are the parent and they are the children. And they are asking for a good spanking.
Each individual State in America is a sovereign entity, responsible for its own destiny, with a God given, Constitutionally protected Right to protect itself, from all enemies, foreign or domestic. The Federal government is simply the infrastructure to support the individual States.
Citizen Grand Juries have formed around the country, totally ignored by the hired help. Citizens exercising their God given, Constitutionally protected Rights are taking a stand against an illegal President and his Treasonous accomplices. You can read about the authenticity of Citizen Grand Jury’s here
Barack Hussein Obama and Columbia University have been indicted by a Citizen Grand Jury. Charges of Treason and Espionage have been levied against them, with a host of other very serious offenses against the People and the Constitution of The United States of America.
That trial was the brought about by the extreme efforts of Pastor James David Manning, PhD, in Harlem, New York. Many videos regarding that trial can be seen here
Jury selection for this trial began on Friday, April 14, 2010 in Harlem.
The charges of Treason and Espionage have been dropped by the prosecution, due to their concerns that if Obama and Columbia are found guilty, WE THE PEOPLE will demand that the guilty parties be put to death.
You can read the indictment against Obama at www.AmericanGrandJu ry.org
You can observe Pastor David Manning at his website.
The trial lasted for several days. Many competent people, including Judges and attorneys, participated in this trial. Guilty verdicts were determined. Those verdicts were turned over to the proper authorities, to enforce the decision of that trial Jury.
NOBODY expects corrupt authorities to do their job.
This is not a “Mock” trial. Obama and his people are a mock administration.
This trial was a Constitutionally authorized attempt, under the 5th and 10th amendments, with Rights designated to WE THE PEOPLE, to bring criminals and corrupt officials to Justice.
As was well known by the creators of the US Constitution, if we leave this job to the part-time worker Politicians, they will just abuse our laws and our Constitution to protect and reward their friends with our money, as most everyone in the World now knows. That is why the US Constitution guarantees WE THE PEOPLE a method of eliminating corrupt government employees.
Authorities who refuse to do their jobs are being placed on a list for future indictments and punishments by WE THE PEOPLE.
If the various Federal Courts and the United States Supreme Court would do their jobs, WE THE PEOPLE would not have to step in and do it for them. It is an easily answered question: Is Obama Constitutionally eligible to be President for WE THE PEOPLE?
He has spent an estimated $2 million dollars, defending his “Right”, in some 40 lawsuits, to not disclose his birthplace, his school records or anything else about his past, which may prove or disprove his eligibility. Not one lawsuit has been heard on the merits of the case. Each case is systematically thrown out for made up fantasy reasons. Reasons that do not exist.
The United States Supreme Court has accepted several cases asking the same thing and they ignore them. Just recently US Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, when talking with some Congressmen about the Presidential eligibility clause in the US Constitution, told them, “We’re evading that one.” And they all laughed about it, ridiculing the American people. Can anyone blame the American people for demanding a simple answer to a simple question?
Here is the video
Let’s see if they laugh when a noose is put around their necks.
Just recently, the US Supreme Court is begging for $77 million for heightened
“security”. What are they afraid of?

Here is the article
The US Supreme Court just announced that they are closing the front entrance doors to the public. What are they afraid of??
Here’s the article
It is obvious to a 5th grader that Obama is hiding enormous amounts of information about himself, that he does not want Americans to know.
Our politicians are totally against the American People. And with all their bravado and arrogance, in reality, they are afraid of the American People.
Witness how they reacted to a man exercising his US Constitutional Right and his State Constitutional Right to perform a Citizen’s Arrest on a man illegally employed in a County Court House in Monroe, Tennessee.
Just about any country on Earth, including The United States of America allows for a Citizen’s Arrest. But, local police charged Lt. Commander Walter Fitzpatrick with creating a riot and ordered him to go for a mental evaluation. A few weeks later he went peacefully back to Court.
Waiting for him were 200 Federal and State Police in SWAT gear with snipers on roof tops. Bunch of sissies. What are they afraid of?
You can read about it here
And you can follow it at www.RiseUpForAmeric a.com
I see articles constantly droning on about how lazy or stupid Americans are. Some are.
Most are good, decent, honest people trying to do good in their community, doing good for their country. We don’t wish any ills on any other Nations. WE THE PEOPLE don’t anyway. Our government lies to us just as much as they lie to you. It’s what they do. WE THE PEOPLE do not appreciate that, but Americans do not quite know what to do to make things right again.
We’re lost, to an extent, but quickly finding our way through this psychotic political mess. We have had deranged psychopaths many times before try to destroy America. Every time, they get to a certain level of arrogance, “in your face”, flaunting their intentions and we destroy them. One recent example can be read here
Americans have a great deal of patience. Americans trust the system to run properly. American Major News does not tell Americans the truth about much of anything. We live under a Major News blackout.
But, The People are learning fast and communicating fast. Americans are learning so fast and communicating so fast that Obama gave a speech for Hampton University Commencement, wringing his hands, that too much information is a diversion and a distraction.
That video is here
And he’s right. It is a diversion….to his agenda.
Because WE THE PEOPLE are sharing information about his evil plans, that Major Media won‘t. It is a distraction, because TV news viewers are leaving in droves. 100 year old Newspapers are closing. Major media is dying, slow but sure, because they lie to their audience and provide very little information of value. People are thirsty for the truth and they are looking elsewhere.
Here is an example of the American citizen’s psychology: Imagine you’re in a restaurant. One man is eating quietly. Some ruffians at a table near him start insulting him. No response.
So they go to his table and insult him. No response. So one tough guy pushes his arm, calls him names. The man politely says, “Look, I just want to eat in peace and go on to work. I’m not looking for a problem.”
Tough guy starts to throw a punch. The quiet man blocks the punch, follows through with a jab to the solar plexus, slams his foot down on the bully’s knee cap, and finishes off by breaking the bully’s nose and throwing him through the plate glass window. He notices the bully’s friends have left, and he goes back to his meal.
WE THE PEOPLE are that man. Obama and his friends are that bully.
Someone may ask: Why would Federal police and State police be afraid of one lone man, Lt. Commander Walter Fitzpatrick, doing what he is legally permitted to do? Why is Obama afraid of “information” being exchanged? Why would the US Supreme Court be so afraid, that they are pleading for more security and planning on shutting their doors to the public? Why are politicians dropping out of their campaigns? Why is Obama putting the 3rd Infantry’s 1st Brigade Combat Team on America’s streets in November for the elections? Why are they so afraid? The article is here
Because they know they are wrong, that they are committing Treason, and when all is said and done, when WE THE PEOPLE retake control of our part time hired help, lists of names already compiled, and new ones being added every day, will be acted against. And the punishments can be severe, as the playing field is rapidly changing.
And they should be scared, because, in our form of Government, WE THE PEOPLE are re-learning that we always have an option against corrupt politicians:
They can not legally execute us for what we are doing, but WE THE PEOPLE can most assuredly execute them for what they are doing. Constitutionally and legally.”

The New World Order In Under 5 Minutes



HD FullScreen: The New World Order in under 5 minutes, a message from HorseOfPaulRevere to the people, meant to be downloaded and rebroadcast by any and everybody. I will be making a series of 'In Under 5 Min' so stay tuned!

The New World Order is the
goal of a collaboration project
orchestrated by the Global Elite.
The goal is one global government,
their NWO, dominated by dictator
rule and central planners, ruling
from the existing power structure
we commonly identify as;
The people & groups behind
International Banks,
Multi-National Companies &
Corporations, Dictators &
Totalitarian Regimes,
Global Interests, Hollywood,
Shadow Governments,
Hijacked Religions,
Military Industrial Complexes,
Bilderberg Members,
United States Federal Reserve,
Council On Foreign Relations,
the U.N., Member Nations and
the huge network of associating
treaties, agreements, groups, clubs,
meetings, etc. Their goal is to enslave
the world population in an invisible
prison, a mental prison, controlling you
through mainstream media, movies, TV,
advertising, MONEY, DEBT and FEAR. They
have already planned every facet of your
life, from what you eat, to what you wear,
drive, buy, make, breathe, say, do, THINK.
Every nation, every state, every man,
woman and child will be affected.
Their efforts and ideas stretch back
centuries, arguably thousands of years,
and have been patiently implemented in
small increments. Now, with the NWO
close to completion, your mind has become
a hot commodity. The Evidence exists, it is
overwhelming, it is everwhere... It is on your
TV, in your headphones, at your movie theater,
in your politicians. What is the solution?
We already have it, we just need you to use it.
THE COMMANDMENTS OF YAHWEH, THE CONSTITUTION AND BILL OF RIGHTS.
We don't need guns or violence, we need
YAHWEH and His Son YESHUA (JESUS CHRIST). Jesus Christ, by His Shed BLOOD, is the only who can free His people from the world.
We are HIS people, join us while you still can.
