Civil Disobedience the God-Kind-of-Way

If you haven’t noticed, I am an extreme proponent of CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE to be acted out against a fraudulently elected nominally headed by CCP Joe Biden. I say, “nominally” because CCP Joe is obviously cognitively challenged. AND if CCP Joe isn’t operating with all his wits, SOMEONE is calling the shots. That “SOMEONE” is a Deep State mystery to me. I suspect the “SOMEONE” is a closet collective oligarchy that may or may not involve Commie Kamala the fraudulently elected Vice President. Civil Disobedience challenges that become massive will probably expose who is actually the power (or powers) acting in the fraudulently led Executive Branch as violent coercion emerges to force compliance.

With that little preamble I ran into Intercessors For America post by Karen Hardin that includes a link to a Rumble video which I will embed.

Interestingly Hardin shares she was not a Trump voter in 2016 (but neither a Crooked Hillary voter). Hardin shares how she became a Trump supporter then gets into the meat of her a little over an hour Rumble video. The discussion centers around the Biblical command of Romans 13: 1-2 which tells Christians to obey the governing authorities. Here is the New King James Version of those two verses:

13 Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will [a]bring judgment on themselves. (Romans 13: 1-2 NKJV)

IF you just read those two verses it sounds like Christians are to sheep for the Dem-Marxist slaughter. With a little patience Hardin explains why Christians are only subject to the governing authorities wittingly or unwittingly enforcing law that is in common ground with the Will of God.

When one reads the entire chapter of Romans 13, a better context of how Christians should act under unjust tyranny is more apparent. Obey when godly governance. Disobey ungodly tyranny in acts of godly Civil Disobedience when possible. When civil violence against godless tyranny emerges, this is a post for another day.

Here is the entire Chapter of Romans 13 using the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC):

13 Let every person be loyally subject to the governing (civil) authorities. For there is no authority except from God [by His permission, His sanction], and those that exist do so by God’s appointment.

 

Therefore he who resists and sets himself up against the authorities resists what God has appointed and arranged [in divine order]. And those who resist will bring down judgment upon themselves [receiving the penalty due them].

 

For civil authorities are not a terror to [people of] good conduct, but to [those of] bad behavior. Would you have no dread of him who is in authority? Then do what is right and you will receive his approval and commendation.

 

For he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, [you should dread him and] be afraid, for he does not bear and wear the sword for nothing. He is God’s servant to execute His wrath (punishment, vengeance) on the wrongdoer.

 

Therefore one must be subject, not only to avoid God’s wrath and escape punishment, but also as a matter of principle and for the sake of conscience.

 

For this same reason you pay taxes, for [the civil authorities] are official servants under God, devoting themselves to attending to this very service.

 

Render to all men their dues. [Pay] taxes to whom taxes are due, revenue to whom revenue is due, respect to whom respect is due, and honor to whom honor is due.

 

Keep out of debt and owe no man anything, except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor [who practices loving others] has fulfilled the Law [relating to one’s fellowmen, meeting all its requirements].

 

The commandments, You shall not commit adultery, You shall not kill, You shall not steal, You shall not covet (have an evil desire), and any other commandment, are summed up in the single command, You shall love your neighbor as [you do] yourself.

 

10 Love does no wrong to one’s neighbor [it never hurts anybody]. Therefore love meets all the requirements and is the fulfilling of the Law.

 

11 Besides this you know what [a critical] hour this is, how it is high time now for you to wake up out of your sleep (rouse to reality). For salvation (final deliverance) is nearer to us now than when we first believed (adhered to, trusted in, and relied on Christ, the Messiah).

 

12 The night is far gone and the day is almost here. Let us then drop (fling away) the works and deeds of darkness and put on the [full] armor of light.

 

13 Let us live and conduct ourselves honorably and becomingly as in the [open light of] day, not in reveling (carousing) and drunkenness, not in immorality and debauchery (sensuality and licentiousness), not in quarreling and jealousy.

 

14 But clothe yourself with the Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah), and make no provision for [indulging] the flesh [put a stop to thinking about the evil cravings of your physical nature] to [gratify its] desires (lusts). (Romans Chapter 13 AMPC)

SHOULD CHRISTIANS SUBMIT TO ALL AUTHORITY?

Intercessors For America

Lord, we ask you for wisdom and discernment on how to walk through the confusing issues hitting us on a regular basis. Open our minds and hearts to understand the scriptures.

In recent days, as the Biden Administration has taken action to promote abortion, encourage transgenderism, and more, many Christians are praying about submission to governmental authority. Here’s what an IFA Contributing Writer has to say on the subject.

Immediately following the inauguration, I had many people tell me, “We have to submit. This is God’s will.” They would then quote Romans 13:1-2,

PrayING-for-wicked-and-evil-politicians [Not sure about the download]

Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.  Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.

 

The scripture seems pretty clear cut doesn’t it? But what about the times from history in which its not?

For example,

  • When Peter and John defied the religious leaders of their day to continue to preach the Gospel.
  • When the Hebrew mid-wives ignored Pharaoh and refused to kill the Hebrew babies.
  • When Daniel continued to pray openly defying the king’s edict.
  • When Paul, who wrote Romans 13 regarding governing authorities, then opposed them.

Which is right? And what are we supposed to do today regarding some of these same issues and the question of whether we are to submit to all authority?

If we state that Romans 13:1-2 mandates that we submit to ALL authority, does that mean that the Germans and Jews should have submitted to Hitler? If so, that would mean Dietrich Bonhoeffer was in rebellion and sin.

Was he? Hardly. Instead, he is remembered as a godly man of courage who stood up to evil.

What about Moses when he opposed Pharaoh? Or the disciples in the book of Acts?

Paul wrote Romans 13 telling the First Century Church to submit to “all” authority. Yet afterwards, he personally stood up to the authorities. Was he wrong?

In order to answer that question, we must compare the Bible to the Bible. It never contradicts itself. We also should compare the Bible to our Constitution. Because what many Americans don’t realize is that they actually agree. Why? Because contrary to the current narrative, the majority of our founding fathers were Christians and even those who weren’t, used the Bible as a foundational framework for our Constitution.

So, should Christians submit to ALL authority? Click below to find out how I would answer that question.”

Are Christians to submit to ALL governing authorities?

Romans 13:1 states, “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established.

The scripture seems pretty clear cut doesn’t it? But what about the times from history in which its not?

For example, MORE TO READ]

Lord, we ask you for wisdom and discernment on how to walk through the confusing issues hitting us on a regular basis. Open our minds and hearts to understand the scriptures. You said You would instruct us and teach us in the way we should go. That you would guide us with Your eye upon us. Where there is confusion, Lord we ask you for clarity. Where there is fear, we ask for faith. Show us how to stand for You when we are confronted with issues that are contrary to Your Word.

  1. Good points. Think i agree. It seems to me we are to resist any government that decrees anything against God. If the govt is evil and says to turn over 2/3 of our pay in super high tax, that we must do even if we must eat wild food to survive. But when a govt, i will say it, says get a jab, thats a no. Wear a mask is a no. Not allowed to work is a no. Personally i do think all govt is raised up by God, but sometimes as judgement against us. Im saying God gave us both trump and biden but we are to resist ungodly decrees even though God put them there. God is watching how we handle it. No dispute that biden was not elected but God allowed it to finish off the judgement. But, trump was also phase one of judgement against us put there by God. By the time Jesus returns, only a few years hense, it seems, most will know that trump set up all the evil upon the world as a subtile snake even though biden and camel and others will finish the job horrendously. I submit the strong delusion is upon the masses now. Even most pastors under it sadly. Its world wide. Maybe some can figure out what it is before our faces. Those not under it are not smart but God simply didnt put the delusion upon them. Those not deluded need much prayer for instruction from God of what to do. We will not stop this. But souls can be preserved is our duty. In Christ Jesus, amen.
