The Declaration of Independence, an example of the Biblical Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrate

And when Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she arose and destroyed all the seed royal.

  • II Kings 11:1

After a two-week hiatus, I’d like to return to our look at the account in II Kings of Queen Athaliah of Judah.  This passage has a lot to say to Christians in America, perhaps especially at this politically charged time in our history. 

As did Judah under Queen Athaliah, likewise we in the United States have a hostile usurper in power. And the question I’d like to ask and answer is what are Christians to do?  How are we to respond?  How do we conduct our lives under an unjust and illegitimate government? 

There seems to be one school of thought among Christians holding to the idea that at no time are Christians to seek to resist an evil ruler or seek to remove an unjust government.  After all, Paul wrote to Timothy urging that supplications be made for kings and all who are in authority.  Romans 13 is another favorite of those who take this position.  There, Paul writes, “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities.”  The case seems clear-cut, does it not? Christians are to obey the government, whatever it says. 

The case for Christians simply having to put up with tyrannical rulers could be strengthened by appeals to the Old Testament.  For example, those holding to the idea that rebellion is always wrong could point to those who conspired to murder King Joash.  In II Kings 12:20, 21 we read, “And his [King Joash’s] servants arose and formed a conspiracy [yes, there are many examples of conspiracies in the Bible], and killed Joash in the house of the Millo, which goes down to Silla.  For Jozachar the son of Shimeath and Jehozabad the son of Shomer, his servants, struck him.  So he died, and they buried him with his fathers in the City of David.  Then Amaziah his son reigned in his place.”  Was this a lawful act?  No, it was not as can be seen in II Kings 14 where we read, “Now it happened, as soon as the kingdom was established in his [Amaziah’s, the son of Joash] hand, that he executed his servants who had murdered his father the king.”  Clearly, this shows that there is no Christian basis for resisting the orders of a ruler, does it not?

Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

  • Exodus 20:16

As much as I try not to let it happen, the constant drumbeat of lies promoted 24/7 from every corner of our civilization gets to me from time to time. 

And I really find it is the constant lying about everything all the time by everyone in official positions of power that gets to me the most.

Politicians, CEOs, university presidents and professors, schoolteachers, school administrators, and school boards, federal government officials, state and local officials, legacy media outlets, churches, doctors, hospitals and medical officials, law enforcement, lawyers and judges, entertainers, athletes and professional sports leagues, bankers, and tax-exempt foundations.  In short, every institution in America has become a lie factory dedicated to deceiving us all and promoting a false view of the world.

But the Bible commands Christians not to lie and deceive others.  In the Ten Commandments, we are told, “Thou shalt not bear false witness.”  Paul repeated this idea in his epistle to the Ephesians, writing, “Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour.”   The Lord Jesus Christ said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.”  The devil, Scripture tells us, is the father of lies.  And as imitators of Christ, his people are called to walk in the truth.  And no lie is of the truth.

Died suddenly.

It’s remarkable how much those simple words have gained traction over the past year. 

So compact, yet so freighted with meaning.

They have, it would seem, become almost a rallying cry for those who oppose the mass poisoning of the world by big pharma’s deadly mRNA “vaccines.”

One courageous academic, Mark Crispin Miller, a professor of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University, features a weekly roundup of “died suddenly” cases from around the world on his substack account, News from Underground.   

Here’s his latest collection of “died suddenlies” from the United States for the week of July 11-July 18. 

At the top of the list is a report about the death of Ivana Trump, Donald Trump’s first wife.  She was found dead at home at the bottom of a staircase.  To date, there has been no reported cause of death for her. 

And while I don’t claim to know what caused her, I admit that my first thought when I heard the report of her passing was to wonder if it was vaccine-related.  According to this ABC News report, “the medical examiner said her cause of death was blunt impact injuries to the torso sustained the result of a fall.”

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 

  • Matthew 24:4

Has there ever been a more thoroughgoing con job than Covid?

Maybe.

But it certainly has to rank as one of the biggest frauds this author has witnessed.  And by biggest, I mean both in the senses of widespread, long-lasting, and destructive.

The Covid con job began in China in 2020 and quickly spread over the whole earth.  Early on, we were shown videos of people dropping dead in the streets and scary ER scenes full of masked and dying patients.  This set the stage for Covid lockdowns in nearly the entire industrialized world.   

I remember well hearing the first talk at work about Covid policies such as moving everyone out of the office and sending them to work from home.  I thought it was crazy.

Then it actually happened.

Jesuit-educated Nina Jankowicz (Masters from Georgetown University) has been tapped by the Biden Regime to head up the new Ministry of Truth, known formally as the Disinformation Governance Board.

When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.

  • Proverbs 29:2

“But clearly our entire principles of the country was founded on, you cannot have a Ministry of Truth in this country.  And so let’s get real here.  Let’s make sure that we’re doing things that benefit Floridians and Americans, but we’re not going to let Biden get away with this one.  So, we’ll be fighting back.”

Those were the remarks of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis last week in response to the Biden Regime’s announcement of a new Ministry of Truth – the Disinformation Governance Board is the actual name for this new group that will fall under the umbrella of the equally Orwellian named Department of Homeland Security. 

For years, many have warned Americans of the creeping police state in this nation, and the day for it has finally arrived.  Actually, it’s been here for some time, but the fruits of the authoritarian mindset of our rulers have become much more manifest over the past two years.

Today’s pandemic response is eerily similar to the smallpox pandemic response” by Steve Kirsch, 2/13/2022

Two authoritarians of a feather. One’s already been convoyed. The other is scared to death of getting the same.

Were you to ask me what Joe Biden, Justin Trudeau, and Jay Powell all have in common; I would answer you this: a belief in their own unaccountable power.

In his book Lex Rex (Latin for The Law is King), Samuel Rutherford set forth the Christian idea that governors, as well as the governed, alike were both under the law. 

Throughout most of human history, it was the exact opposite.  Rather than the law being king, it was Rex Lex, the king is the law. Put differently, The law is what the king says it is, and he himself is above it.

The notion that the law – and we mean by “the law” the law of God – is king and not man is a thoroughly Biblical and Christian idea.  It is not an accident that Protestant Samuel Rutherford set forth this idea in a book instead of some Roman Catholic scholar.  The idea that both the ruler and the ruled stand under the law and are responsible to God is a concept that was rediscovered at the time of the Reformation in implemented in those nations to which the Reformation came.

Those of us who live in the West, as badly decomposed as it is, have enjoyed the privilege of living under a system of government that acknowledged this principle.  As recently as two years ago, one could still think of this great idea as operable.  But beginning in 2020, Western governments initiated a coup détat of sorts, replacing the Protestant idea that the law is king with a technocratic tyranny in which unaccountable bureaucrats and puppetized elected officials rule us like kings.

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

  • Ephesians 6:10

Commenting on Ephesians 6:10, Gordon Clark said of this verse, “Here begins the peroration of the epistle.” 

“Peroration” is not a term most of us commonly use.  It means the concluding part of a discourse, especially the concluding part of an oration.  A second meaning of “peroration” is highly rhetorical speech.  In light of this definition, Clark’s calling verse 10 the beginning of the epistle’s peroration certainly seems appropriate.  Verses 10-18 of Ephesians chapter 6 are memorable, not only for the message itself but also for the rhetoric Paul uses to make his point.

In this passage, Paul uses the figure of a Christian soldier armed to do battle against the wiles of the devil

Now this passage on Christian spiritual warfare has many applications.  But the focus of my comments today will be concerning Christians and the present battle against Covid tyranny. 

For nearly two years, Christians the world over have been subjected to a remarkably intense political, economic, and psychological assault by the political, academic, religious, and business elite of the world.  This assault, whether in the form of unprecedented lockdowns, vaccine mandates, or restrictions on movement, ultimately is not a political battle, although it involves political oppression.  Neither is it fundamentally economic in nature, even though the pushers of the Covid narrative have certainly attacked ordinary people economically while at the same time vastly enriching many billionaires who benefited from the lockdowns and vaccine mandates.
