The doctrine of revolution part 2

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

2Chron 7:13; "If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people"

Believers who involved in the cosmic system have no wall of fire and are often disciplined by God during historical disaster.

God uses historical disaster to discipline and often to remove carnal cosmic believers from the earth. When too many carnal cosmic believers reject objective truth they form an anti-pivot so when there are too many carnal cosmic believers in the client nation the nation becomes self-destructive.

A nation will actually destroy itself were it not for the fact that every year God eliminates from the client nation a number of carnal cosmic believers.

Cosmic involvement rejects objective truth that results in social degeneration, economic disaster, and military defeat. This is what we see occurring in client nation USA at this time because we have too many carnal cosmic believers in our nation so God is allowing client nation USA to come under the cycles of discipline.

Lev 26:14-20; 'But if you do not obey Me and do not carry out all these commandments,
15 if, instead, you reject My statutes, and if your soul abhors My ordinances so as not to carry out all My commandments, and so break My covenant,

16 I, in turn, will do this to you: I will appoint over you a sudden terror, consumption and fever that will waste away the eyes and cause the soul to pine away; also, you will sow your seed uselessly, for your enemies will eat it up.
17'I will set My face against you so that you will be struck down before your enemies; and those who hate you will rule over you, and you will flee when no one is pursuing you.

18 'If also after these things you do not obey Me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins.
19'I will also break down your pride of power; I will also make your sky like iron and your earth like bronze.
20'Your strength will be spent uselessly, for your land will not yield its produce and the trees of the land will not yield their fruit.

The only way to restore the wall of fire is a national change of thinking and al to return to Divine Establishment.

2Chron 7:13-14; "If My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Last time we concluded the doctrine of the categories of death and took up a brief study on the doctrine of revolution. We noted that revolution involves the overthrow of the laws of divine establishment, Rom 13:1-7;

Revolution involves lawless mobs of people who have rejected objective truth and who refuse to think or achieve, therefore the mob is manipulated by a self-righteous criminal element so the mob becomes the weapon of the revolution that is exploited by the crusader operating in criminal and political arrogance.

God's Word condemns revolution. Num 16; describes Korah, Dathan, and Abiram in the first revolution in Israel where they rebelled against Aaron's family being the family of the priesthood. It didn't end well for them. Num 16:31-33;

Revolution always starts with the rejection of doctrinal truth and establishment truth. Jer 5:23; Isa 1:2-5;

When a mob of people have rejected the objective truth found in God's Word of truth they become a weapon to be forged by a revolutionary organization because strong delusion from blind arrogance causes them to become hyper stupid because of their false assumptions.

A false premise inevitably leads to a wrong conclusion that results in making bad decisions that limit future options.

When the wrong conclusions are clearly identified by bad results rather than changing their mind they self justify, accuse the truth of being judgmental and project the blame for the bad consequences on the truth.

This is how we get hyper stupid ideas like gender dysphoria, the 1619 project, and critical race theory.

When it comes to a revolution there are three categories of people.

Category one are the hard core conspirators who foment the revolution. These people are locked into the lie because they want to destroy establishment and replace it with evil. Examples of these are communists and moslem extremists.

Category two is the general public, who will never join a revolution unless they become stupid, and if they do become stupid they become the sheep who follow the propaganda machine of the public lie.

For that to occur they have to become malcontented from arrogance plus the recipients of strong delusion, the propaganda of satan; then they are motivated to join the revolution where they are manipulated by the hard core revolutionaries. These people can be influenced by objective truth.

Category three are the incorruptible, the people in the client nation whose establishment norms and perception of doctrine and their belief in objective truth combine with their honor and integrity to reject all revolutionary overtures.

These are the people who live and die by their convictions. They have accepted some category of objective truth so that they are insulated against strong delusion. The incorruptible are those who maintain their independence from satan's cosmic system with its arrogance and hatred of truth.

No revolution can gain momentum m apart from the function of satan's cosmic system. Both arrogance and strong delusion are the necessary ingredients for a revolution.

Most revolutions lead to a civil war. They become a struggle for power with violence. If the revolutionaries do gain enough converts from the general public and the common people civil war is inevitable.

When revolution starts a civil war there are two opposing forces seeking to gain power, and everyone is caught in between them.

When revolutionaries start a civil war the issue is always truth, but truth always gets lost in the violence because once violence begins violence takes on a life of its own so truth is submerged and the facts are ignored.

When politics starts a civil war the issue is freedom; when revolution starts a civil war the issue is truth: both get lost in the violence.

Revolution is inevitable when people don't make a distinction between authoritarian government and totalitarian government. This is one point that we must understand.

Many forms of government, including monarchy, oligarchy, republic, and even dictatorship can function under the laws of divine establishment that provide the aegis for the function of freedom.

Revolution is antiestablishment, therefore anti-authoritarian.

Revolution generally starts in a totalitarian government that is a highly centralized form of government under the control of one political group.

It is imperative that we distinguish between authoritarian government that can be good and totalitarian government that is always evil.

An authoritarian government provides the balance between authority and freedom and is compatible with the laws of divine establishment.

A totalitarian government destroys freedom with the total ascendancy of authority that produces tyranny.

Two categories of human freedom exist in life: temporal establishment freedom and spiritual freedom. Temporal establishment freedom results from the imputation of human life at birth and the function of an establishment government.

Freedom includes authority. Authority under the laws of divine establishment includes personal volition, marriage, family, and government. Authority without freedom is tyranny. Freedom without authority is anarchy.

Freedom and equality aka equity cannot coexist.

Freedom can neither guarantee nor manufacture equality aka equity n the human race. Some use freedom to advance under the principle of self-determination; others use freedom to retrogress. There is no equality in heaven. Eternal reward is determined by the use of volition in time.

Freedom is a reality and equality aka equity is a myth. The function of freedom guarantees inequality. Equality ake equity is the device of arrogant disoriented people who have rejected objective truth.

Evil tyrants like the current imposter "in chief" try to enforce equality aka equity with evil rules and regulations. The pursuit of equity was is the basis of Satan's revolution is also the policy of the tyrant.

Spirit freedom results from the imputation of God's righteousness at the moment of faith in Christ and provision of God's protocol spiritual power system that can function under both totalitarian and authoritarian nations.

2Cor 3:17-18; "Now the Lord is the Spirit [God the Holy Spirit is deity], and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. But we all, with an unveiled face looking into a mirror to produce a reflection of the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into that same image from glory to glory, as it were from the Spirit of the Lord."

Believers must never use their spiritual freedom to endanger or hurt the divine blessings and liberty that accompany their freedom.1Pet 2:16;

Any believer who does not choose to advance in God's protocol plan by using their freedom to choose for the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ is hurting the nation. 2Pet 3:18;

This means that it is possible for God to bless believers in any part of the world regardless of what form of government runs the country because the believer has accepted Jesus Christ as Savior so they are under God's aegis.

In nations with totalitarian governments such as the taliban in Afghanistan or the communists in China and Russia or like what the leftists imposters are trying to establish in the USA believers are often killed and become martyrs.

This is simply God allowing them to be removed them from the spiritual battlefield and taken to heaven under dying grace because their mission on the earth in the devil's world in an unglorified mortal body is finished. Psa 116:15;

It happened to Jesus John 19:30; Therefore when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, "It is finished!" And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit.

Jesus said it would happen to His followers John 16:2-3;"They will make you outcasts from the synagogue, but an hour is coming for everyone who kills you to think that he is offering service to God. 3 "These things they will do because they have not known the Father or Me (objective truth).

Paul identified with this before Nero had his head cut off 2Tim 4:6-8; For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure has come. 7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have held on to the truth; 8 in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing.

We may be next.
