v13 But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells.
We are presently in a study of satan's cosmic system, a system of arrogant demonic thinking that is comprised of lies and deceit from demonic viewpoint that since the fall in the Garden of Eden, separated from God in the darkness of spiritual death has become the viewpoint of the entire human race. 1Cor 2:14; Rev 12:9;
At this point in our study we are examining the various manifestations of the arrogance complex of satan's cosmic system and presently are looking at client nation arrogance.
Last time we noted that during the course of human history there are two categories of client nations. In the Old Testament there were four Jewish client nations comprised of the new racial species.
These Jewish client nations included the united kingdom of Israel, the northern kingdom, the southern kingdom, and Judah. These client nations existed from the Jews' Exodus from Egypt under Moses until the destruction of Judah by Titus in August of 70 A.D.
The client nations of the New Testament that Jesus referred to as "the times of the Gentiles" are the Gentile client nations to God that are where the pivot of the new spiritual species resides and has spiritual influence on political matters. These Gentile client nations began with S.P.Q.R. and continue presently with client nation U.S.A. 1Pet 2:9-10;
When a maximum number of the new spiritual species (Church Age believers) in a client nation are living in satan's cosmic system and when the citizens of the client nation reject the laws of divine establishment, God places the nation under the cycles of discipline.
With the administration of the fifth cycle of discipline, client nation status is removed, and often that nation goes into slavery. Three of the Jewish client nations were destroyed by the fifth cycle of discipline in this manner and at present the Jews remain scattered until Jesus returns to re-gather them back into their promised land and establish the last client nation of human history.
The Northern Kingdom was enslaved and destroyed by the Assyrians in B.C. 721. The Southern Kingdom was enslaved and destroyed by the Chaldeans in B.C. 586 and the Kingdom of Judah was enslaved and destroyed by the Romans in A.D. 70.
The times of the Gentiles (Luke 21:24) officially began in A.D. 70 and will continue until the resurrection of the Church when history goes back to the Old Testament system.
This means that while there may be Jewish nations on the earth, there will be no Jewish client nations to God until the Second Advent of Christ and His millennial reign.
The current active client nation to God is the United States of America. During the course of history a nation can function under legitimate government or arrogant government so it is important to distinguish between them.
There are three categories of legitimate government, and three categories of arrogant government. The form of government doesn't matter as much its function.
Monarchy is the rule of one person as a king or queen in the interest of the common good. The arrogant distortion of this is tyranny, the rule of one person as a dictator for their own advantage.
Aristocracy is the rule of a group of people in the interest of the common good. The arrogant distortion of this is oligarchy, that is the rule of a special interest group for their own benefit.
A Democratic Republic is the rule of the better part of the people in the interest of the common good. The arrogant distortion of a democratic republic is a democracy that is the rule of the worst part of the people that comprise a majority as a mob for their own benefit under the tyranny of the majority.
The Constitution of the USA was written to prevent this from occurring but in spite of their best efforts this is what is happening in client nation USA at the present time under the demonic influence of the so called progressives who are actually regressives who are using their freedom as a cloak for and the establishment of tyranny from behind the rhetorical veils of "equal privilege" and "social justice."
This is why the satanic cosmic reversionist leftists want to do away with the Constitutional mandate that establishes the electoral college that protects the minority from the mob by distributing power to the states.
But regardless of the form of government, the purpose of a client nation is to establish freedom, privacy, and the sacredness of both property and life. Regardless of government, the client nation must provide an environment of freedom for evangelism, Bible teaching, missionary activity.
This freedom even extends to those who those who choose to reject God's Word unless they become involved in criminal activity.
Client nation arrogance begins when and arrogant form of government, whether tyranny, oligarchy, or democracy replaces legitimate government. This arrogant government reflects the general attitude of the people including apostasy among believers, indifference among unbelievers, and irresponsibility by everyone.
Client nation arrogance includes both self-righteous moral and self-indulgent immoral degeneration.
Client nation arrogance obscures the distinctions between church and state, between the military and the state, and between private enterprise and the state.
The church is hijacked and becomes apostate so it gets involved with social action and social justice instead doing its job of the communicating the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and functioning on the basis of in the invisible spiritual life of the Church Age believer.
Churches that advocate such evils as the welfare state, redistribution of wealth, destroying the sovereignty of other nations through "civil rights," big government and little people, unjust taxation, illegal immigration, the rule of the proletariat through labor unions that is an irresponsible extension of the voting franchise; and all believers who advocate these evils are caught up and ensnared in satan's cosmic system.
