The judgment seat of Christ part 9

Matt 24:6-8;"You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end.
7 "For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.
8 "But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.

2Tim 3:12-13; Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.13 and evil men and demagogues will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.

Jer 50:6-7; "My people have become lost sheep. Their shepherds have led them astray. They have wandered around in the mountains. They have roamed from one mountain and hill to another. They have forgotten their resting place.

7 All who encountered them devoured them. Their enemies who did this said, 'We are not liable for punishment! For those people have sinned against the Lord, their true pasture. They have sinned against the Lord in whom their ancestors trusted.'

We've noted how these evil people and imposters are working to turn God's client nation into a totalitarian state and they call anyone who opposes them insurrectionists and traitors.

But God is using the wrath of man to praise Him Psa 78:10 because the truth cannot be denied 2Cor 13:10; and working the entire mess together for the benefit of those who love Him. Rom 8:28; those who wait patiently for Him Isa 40:31;

Psa 34:19; Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all.

2Cor 12:9-10; He has said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness." Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.
10 Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ's sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong

2Cor 4:17-18; For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, 18 while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

In our study on the judgment seat of Christ last time we noted that it was not Greece that brought us western European civilization; it was Rome with its law and order.

When we stopped last time we had noted that multiculturalism destroys freedom because multiculturalism embraces satan's lie that all cultures are equal. Freedom comes exclusively from God's Word of truth so cultures based on satan's lies destroy freedom.

Freedom is destroyed when respect for law is destroyed. Except in rare cases these people do not come in respecting our laws, they come into the United States because they recognize they have improved their situation but they want to hold onto the lies that are the cause of their situation.

It used to be that when people came to this country they no longer identified as white, or black, or brown. One's race, gender and color were not an issue. You no longer identified with whatever your background was because now you were and American and you were in the United States and there was one culture and only one. A culture based on divine establishment truth.

Everybody used to gladly recite the pledge to the flag " I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands one nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all.

But not anymore because now too many parasites disrespect the flag by kneeling rather than saluting and totalitarian demagogues are suspending the pledge because too many have adopted the same attitude that the Roman citizens adopted that resulted in the destruction of client nation Rome. That same evil thinking is destroying client nation USA.

Free people first become free in their thinking because thinking truth creates freedom. Conversely slave people first becomes enslaved in their thinking because thinking lies creates slavery. Our nation is presently on course to become experientially enslaved because the people's thinking is filled with lies promoted by the evil created by the usurper imposter totalitarian demagogues.

We have opened the franchise and allowed people to vote who have no interest or understanding of how and why this country is what it is. We have opened the franchise to people who hate this country.

What is an American? Americans cannot be defined by race, gender, creed or nationality. We aren't a race. We are like Rome. We are comprised of every race.

When Julius Caesar took in the Gauls and others as citizens he shocked Rome but it was the beginning of the greatness of Rome because they were taken in on the basis of Roman culture.

There is no racial issue in this country, it is a manufactured issue that evil imposter tyrants have created to use as a rhetorical veil to exploit and divide the different races so they can acquire and retain power and the guilt ridden arrogant citizens who should know better are being deceived by it.

These are false issues that have been created and all they have done is to encourage arrogance so that the arrogant people say, "My race has been maltreated here." But their race has in fact had the best opportunity any race has ever had has ever had in all of human history.

Who are these people we are catering to who say they are the downtrodden?

People are only downtrodden because they are the products of the bad decisions that come from their own thinking; they have used their free volition to persistently make bad decisions so they remain downtrodden. Freed slaves who do not change their thinking remain enslaved.

The source of the problem is their thinking. The problem is not the culture that gave them freedom

God's Word of truth instructs believing slaves regarding how to think and act in 1Tim 6:1-2; Those who are under the yoke as slaves must regard their own masters as deserving of full respect. This will prevent the name of God and Christian teaching from being discredited.

2 But those who have believing masters must not show them less respect because they are brothers. Instead they are to serve all the more, because those who benefit from their service are believers and dearly loved. Teach them and exhort them about these things

Free people who think like slaves will be re-enslaved by but evil demagogues they vote for who are working to re-enslaving them and they will soon actually be enslaved and they will wonder how it happened. It will happen because of their persistent evil arrogant thinking.

A principle that is the background for all of the rewards at the judgment seat of Christ is that these great decorations and rewards come to those who glorify Jesus Christ; those who fulfill God's plan, those who reside and function inside of God's power system, they all are based on a principle, of temporal and eternal security that come from God alone.
