Separation of Church and State?
May 19, 2009
What does separation of church and state mean? To begin with, it spells out the word ‘disaster’. When this separation takes place, then the opposite situation arises, where you will have the marriage of religion and state, which spells out the word ‘rebellion’. How do I arrive at this understanding? It is clearly spelled out for us in the prophetic words of Scripture, which are written by the Spirit of God in the spirit of truth and life, for God is truth.
America’s true historical heritage spells out God’s ruler-ship in the nation. Wherever God’s Law rules, the spirit of rebellion is lurking in the shadows waiting for the door-opener to enter into the land. The spirit of rebellion was spelled out in the Garden of Eden, after God had set man in a paradise in which all things were created good. It was here that He put His government in place by which He ruled over man and man was co-partner with Him to rule over creation according to the truth of His Word.
God required absolute obedience for the preservation of life and of His creation, with disobedience leading to the death of man and the end of the paradise in which he had been placed. Man was given free will to choose between obedience and disobedience, the result of which proved to be a fatal wound. The choice was between righteousness and unrighteousness – between the joy of peace and comfort and the unhappiness of pain and suffering. God gave the formula for preserving life, but man rejected it by opting to go the route of rebellion, and has been choosing to do so ever since.
In God’s mercy and love for mankind, He chose to give him another ‘kick at the can’, so to speak. He started anew by choosing one man, Abraham, who was as the Adam of Israel, to whom God gave the woman Sarah to be his comparable partner. Together, by supernatural intervention and supernatural restoration of the fruit bearing years, they would produce a child of inheritance, who would become a father to a line of people who were to receive the gift of another Garden-setting called the Promised Land.
This land and its people would eventually take the name of Israel, but not before the blessing of God’s promise had crossed over twice, from first son to second son – from Ishmael to Isaac and from Esau to Jacob. It would continue to cross over from nation to spiritual nation and from spiritual nation to the bride, the comparable partner of Jesus. It was for this purpose God had created Adam so that men could produce good fruit and sons of adoption for the Father of Creation. The marriage bed of man was to reflect the relationship in love of man to God, with man becoming as the woman. Hence, Israel and the church take on the nature of that woman.
The rebellion of the Garden was acceptance by man of the lie that formed the foundation for the first belief system of man (religion), which spelled out the word liberalism, or a counterfeit sense of liberty in separation from the Law of God and His truth. Religion and liberalism come together to spell out death. All nations of the world, with the exception of those ruled by God, are ruled by man under the religious controls of the antichrist spirit. Religion (rebellion) and truth cannot share in the same marriage bed in which God and man are united together in truth. When truth rules in a nation, the true church rules alongside of it as the woman ruled beside her husband in the Garden government of God.
So, how are these religions recognized? They are the ‘itys’ and the ‘isms’ of this world – Christianity (churchism), Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Confucianism, Communism, Fascism and Human Secularism. The exception to the rule is called Islam, which, of course, is synonymous with the word terrorism, with Mohammed being its dead leader who never rose again from the dead, yet still is idolized as a god. His religious message was a very demonic one spelled out in death by promoting the killing of anyone who might get in the way of the spread of Islam throughout the entire world.
This misguided leader’s goal was set on capturing the world and enforcing upon it the religious control of Islam. It is a branch of the same government Satan set up in the Garden of religious empire-building until his empires would finally culminate in the One World Order in which he would have dominion over the entire world. It will take place with a world leader appearing on the scene who will be the Antichrist, into whom his spirit will enter, the same spirit, which has always hated the world rule of the true Christ, its Creator.
With each successive empire-building leader, his role is marked by his desire to be worshiped as a god like the Most High God, the reason for which Lucifer was driven from heaven to the earth beneath to become the devil called Satan. Once he has achieved his goal of no resistance from this world, by killing the last voice of the church, the bride, who is called to witness to the truth, then he shall set about to destroy everything that remains according to his nature of being the destroyer. He is preparing his agents as I write.
Hence, we see the Muslim sympathizer, Obama, bowing this country of America before Arabic Muslim kings while refusing to bow before a Western-styled queen. It all happened in the same breath of the same first political trip he made into foreign countries to reveal America’s new foreign policy under his regime, of pandering to the satanically-led governments of this world. Having a huge influence in all of this is his Jezebel-spirited wife who will be a power behind his throne of office. He claims to be a believer, but does not embrace either Jesus or the truth of the Bible.
King Ahab showed us just how disastrous that controlling, feminine, Jezebel spirit can be when, as king, he married a woman of the wrong spirit. Solomon got into the same mess with his pagan wives, which eventually caused the throne of Israel to be ripped from him and his descendants. Obama and his wife are black, not because of skin color, but rather because of spirit; they are spreading their darkness throughout God’s land. But then, America has chosen darkness over the light, and does not comprehend what she has embraced.
The prophet Jeremiah explained it all very well 600 years before the birth of Jesus, the Light of the world and the Truth.
“If you will return, O Israel,” says the Lord, “return to Me; and if you will put away your abominations out of My sight, then you shall not be moved. And you shall swear, ‘The Lord lives,’ in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness; the nations shall bless themselves in Him, and in Him they shall glory (Jeremiah 4:1-2).”
“For I have heard a voice as of a woman in labor, the anguish as of her who brings forth her first child, the voice of the daughter of Zion bewailing herself, who spreads her hands, saying, ‘Woe is me now, for my soul is weary because of murderers (Jeremiah 4:31)!”
Therefore thus says the Lord God of hosts: “Because you speak this word, behold, I will make My words in your mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them. Behold, I will bring a nation against you from afar, O house of Israel,” says the Lord. “It is a mighty nation, it is an ancient nation, a nation whose language you do not know, nor can you understand what they say. Their quiver is like an open tomb; they are all mighty men. And they shall eat up your harvest and your bread, which your sons and daughters should eat. They shall eat up your flocks and your herds; they shall eat up your vines and your fig trees; they shall destroy your fortified cities, in which you trust, with the sword (Jeremiah 5:14-17).”
The nation, Israel, did not heed the words of the prophet Jeremiah, so Babylon entered through the gates of Jerusalem and took the Israelites away captive to the pagan god and king of the empire-building nation they so loved. Modern Iraq sits on the site of ancient Babylon. Is it not ironic that America thought she could change Iraq when, all along, it was America, which needed to change from within?
Israel’s problem was not Babylon. She played the harlot to her God with the gods of the gentile nations, so God gave her over to the desire of her heart. Until we come to desire truth more than we want religion, then it is Babylon we will get, and Islam it will be.
“And so it shall be,” said Jeremiah, and so it has already begun. Islam is crossing the borders of America to take her off to Babylon. Muslims, who were held back at the gate by a required oath sworn on the Bible, are now pouring into this land, filling its neighborhoods, its classrooms, its courthouses and its halls of parliament demanding that their laws and customs, which are completely at odds with the laws and customs of America, be established in this land. We are in desperate need of closing that gate and putting a stop to the religious, Islamic infiltration of our country before it goes any further. We, the supposedly inheriting sons of God, will surely have the inheritance ripped away from us, every bit as much as God tore it away from Solomon.
They are not our leaders who are the real rulers in this land; they merely respond to the people who simply hire them to carry out the will of the people who, in fact, are called to be the rulers over America through the democratic process of law in liberty. God gave this partnership with Him to His church and it was to her that He gave the right to be His voice that speaks for Him. It has failed miserably in keeping a high profile and demanding that our governments remain loyal to God and His Word, the real Ruler over all of America, as He co-partners with His true church and bride.
Unity between church and state is the only thing, which can maintain liberty in this land. Surely we understand that it was the failure of Aaron, the high priest and voice for Moses, called to keep the people in line with God, which led to Israel becoming involved in a religious orgy of the worst kind. This, in turn, led to the death of many rebellious Israelites. Had it not been for the intercession of Moses on behalf of his people, God would have done away with the entire nation of Israel.
“Repent and turn back from religion to truth, and I shall return to you!” Thus says the Lord.
