Lords and Servants
Oct 24, 2006
The fundamental principle of all good government rests upon the idea that governing officials are public servants, rather than privileged lords over commoners.
The pursuit of advantage is, of course, a major concern to the carnal mind of man, and this takes many forms. Those born into aristocracy see their privilege as a natural or inherent right. They do not often see authority as the power to serve the best interests of the common people. Or they view their privileges as partial payment for their governing abilities and talents.
One manifestation of this mindset over the past millennia has been the idea that one race is "better" than another and that "ours" operates on divine privilege over "their" race. This kind of thinking is not limited to the white race, but they have certainly received the most criticism for it in the past century.
The most glaring example of racism today is that of Jewish Zionism, but no one is allowed to question or criticize this form without, in turn, being called racist or "anti-semitic." It is as if being a Jew by definition means one is not a racist. Racism is a term reserved for white people alone. Thus, if someone hates white people, it is not racism but justifiable hatred. And if a Jew hates Arabs or Palestinians, it is not racism but the justifiable results of being at war.
Going back to the beginning, in Gen. 12:2 and 3, God told Abraham, "and so you shall be a blessing. . . and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed."
My question is this: If the Jews are really the children of Abraham, are they a blessing to all the families of the earth? Or are they attempting to bless themselves by helping themselves to someone else's land and killing anyone who gets in the way? If they were truly God's chosen people, they would be acting entirely different.
The fact is, those who follow Abraham's example are the children of Abraham, not necessarily those who may prove that he was a great-ancestor of theirs. The Bible is full of negative examples of people who were Israelites but who were as corrupt and non-chosen as the worst of them. King Ahab was not "chosen" in the sight of God, regardless of his genealogy. Neither was Esau "chosen," though he was Abraham's full-blooded grandson with impeccable genealogy.
Deciding who is "chosen" may have begun with one's genealogy or race, but that was not the deciding factor. The deciding factor was the person's character and relationship with God and His covenant. No doubt both Esau and King Ahab were circumcised, but this did not put them in a covenant relationship with God, for God looks on the heart, not upon outward marks.
Jesus told us the mind of God in this regard in Matt. 20:25-28,
" (25) You know that the rulers of the Gentiles [ethnos, "nations"] lord it over them, and their great men exercise authority over them. (26) It is not so among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant, (27) and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave; (28) just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many."
There is a new world order coming, and it is not the one that the mighty men of the world are serving. It is the Kingdom of God. God is working through natural events to show all men the depravity and inability of the carnal mind to bring the Peace that men desire. Evil destroys itself, for it is a cannibal which must eat, even if it must eat its own leg. Though many world leaders and diplomats have good intentions, they are attempting to establish peace through the channels of the world system of Babylon, rather than through God and His Kingdom. They cannot help but fail in the long run.
We, on the other hand, cannot fail, as long as we walk the path that Jesus walked. We can expect to reach apparent failure, even as Jesus appeared to fail when He was nailed to the cross. But our very "failure"--like His--will prove to be the path to success. The Apostle Paul tells us in 1 Cor. 13:8 that "Love never fails," but I say to you that Love never succeeds until it has appeared to fail.
That is part of the great proof of Love. Love overcomes evil with good. But first, evil must kill Love in order for it to be resurrected to new Life that is beyond death. The reason so few want to Love on this level is that such Love is vulnerable to pain and death at the hands of wicked men whom God uses to test and manifest true Love.
The world cannot understand this, nor does it believe in such a thing. The world is too obsessed in its survival mode to entertain any idea that death may be part of the divine plan. And that is why so few world leaders and powerful men will be rulers in the New World Order that they are attempting to establish.
Neither the rulers of this present time nor the "patriots" who oppose them understand that to be a ruler in God's Kingdom one must be a servant or a slave to mankind. They are too busy making slaves of others or they are trying to throw off the yoke of slavery by carnal means. Neither side really believes in the sovereignty of God, and so they feel the need to help God do His job. This is true, whether people call themselves Christians, Jews, or Muslims.
The world needs to consider an alternative mindset. It is the one that Jesus had. Of course, His method has only been proven in certain individual cases and has yet to see the final victory over the world system that killed Him. He rose from the grave victorious over death, but that fact was covered up by the usual bribes (Matt. 28:15), so that the opposition might continue in their self-serving rule over the people.
If you want to win in the end, you must know that type of Love that Jesus knew and personally demonstrated. He who loves the most will receive the highest authority in the Kingdom. The level of authority in the Kingdom of God is based upon one's ability to Love, not upon one's ability to help God do what He seemingly cannot do for Himself. These are the ones that God has chosen, regardless of their genealogy.
Love is manifested in honoring each person's worth and purpose in the divine plan. This is why the principle of equal justice for all is important, for when we deny someone equal justice, we cease to fulfill the Abrahamic calling to be a blessing to ALL families of the earth.
It can be said that in past centuries the white race did not honor other races or make much attempt to be a blessing to them. The Church did little to change this, although it had in its possession the teachings of Jesus. So God finally called in the B-Squad to correct them. This is the Babylon-Squad. The Babylonian world has chastised us in the past century for this deficiency, but unfortunately, when the world must correct us, it is a bit like taking a drug--there are always side effects that are not so good.
Today, Christian racism is manifested primarily in their support for Zionism and a near-worshipful attitude toward Jews. In a way, it is "reverse racism," for it places Jews above even Christians and makes equal justice impossible for non-Jews. Palestinians continue to pay the greatest price for this distorted theology, but I believe that soon we are all going to pay a heavy price. That will be the day we go to war against Iran (Persia), for that war will not go as planned. I think that our Babylonian world is going to fall down around us, if not immediately, then in the political aftermath that follows.
The people will be needing answers in that day. Pray and study the Word now, and prepare to be the answer.
