Desire, Truth and Government!

“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!”

Patrick Henry

“No totalitarian authority nor authoritarian state can tolerate those who have an absolute by which to judge that state and its actions…Christians [have] that absolute in God’s revelation.”

Francis A. Schaeffer

“No manifest idolater, nor notorious transgressor of God’s holy precepts, ought to be promoted to any public regiment [government], honour, or dignity, in any realm, province, or city that has subjected itself to his blessed evangel.”

John Knox {Reformer}, Part of his Summary of the Proposed Second Blast of the Trumpet, Part 2

As I read blogs, listen to CNN and so-forth, I find myself not really concerned with it all. I am more concerned about our separation from this anti-christ system. I find that my thoughts are not on wall street or the so called government continuing to try and put blindfolds on the nation and its bandaide treatments, but my thoughts are on being obediant to Gods word. If He has called us out then we must trust that He will provide the way to do so. I was looking at the exchange rate and have been so we can exchange our currency to american. It has gone up greatly and yet I know this will not detour us from continuing on our process. It may mean less money but in the end God is in control and it is He that is the great provider. The world is changing around us and not for the better. I do know that we cannot take our time and relax on the issue of separation. We should be and are taken action. Time is short or all most up.

I find my heart and mind are ahead of my physical separation. I long for my obediance to God to be fullfilled.  Many people are convinced that things will eventually get back to  normal and they might have to tighten their belts for a time but it will all pass. I believe they are all in for a shock.

I had my boss from work tell me that she was not concerned and that many people have said that they were living in the end times and nothing happened and she believed that this is what was happening again and that it is not the actual endtimes.  Is it because they believe it won’t happen in their lifetime or is it that they don’t like the thought of having to give up all their comforts of the world? Those that love the anti-christ system depend on it. They believe that their god will continue to keep them comfortable.  The world is cloaked in deception and it rests on all that will not or cannot see the truth. The true Gospel teaches us about the anti-christ system and shows us clearly what we are called to do.

The government is failing and the system is failing, but my God never fails. He is faithful to complete what He has started. He will continue to place on our hearts the urgency of separation. He will keep our minds focused on the process and not on the circumstances that are around us. 

A wonderful article that was written by Michael Bunker who is the author of www.biblicalagrarianism.com can be viewed at http://michaelbunker.com/journal.html it is called October rants part one and rants-fest part 2. These articles help to explain the biblical princple behind separation and preparedness as true believers.

An example from October rants Part one:

Separation is more than just a philosophy. It is a natural result that is inevitable when certain things occur. When you speak a different language, operate on fundamentally different principles, reject the worldview and foundational basis of the world around you, and are determined to live contra-mundum (against the world), then you will naturally be a separatist. I will give you an example. If you were translated into a strange and foreign country, where you did not speak the language of the people, and where the practices and actions of the people were not just foreign to you – but were offensive, and where the people operated on principles that were fundamentally opposite to yours, but where, for a time, the people were willing to let you live somewhat peacably and according to your own principles, you would be a separatist would you not? This is the problem with the modern “christian”. Modern “Xtianity” has concluded that syncretism is acceptable despite the fact that the Bible says these things:1. That we are not citizens or “nationals” of this world, but we are citizens and ambassadors of another Kingdom.
2. We are not to be conformed to this world.
3. If we come to love this foreign land, then the love of our true King is not in us.
4. Our true country is not of this country at all, and we are to live separated in it, and are to be obedient to our true sovereign, and are not to become entangled or burdened with the cares of this foreign country.
 
 We pray that God in His wonderful mercy would continue to draw us to Himself and would help us to separate sooner then later. May God place in your hearts His true desires for you and yours. May He show you the TRUTH before its to late and you are trapped in the cities with no where to go.

  1. Amen, Debbie! May God protect, provide for and guide you as you strive to separate from the world and its systems to a Biblical lifestyle and like-minded community. We are praying for Bill’s full recovery and are very excited to meet you both!
