SEEKING A WORLDLY KINGDOM OR A HEAVENLY ONE?
“Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.”
This one verse should persuade those who fancy themselves American Christian rebels or Christian patriots NOT to look to the Bible to support their unholy, worldly pursuits of revolt, rebellion and revolution.
What about “tyranny” and tyrants?
“Bless” is what the Book says to do–not rebel.
“Christian patriots” is a contradiction in terms; the Bible teaches no man can serve two masters–though American church-dwellers believe they are exempt from the Bible where rebellion is concerned.
“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”
American church-goers who preach rebellion can either serve Jesus or the earthly kingdom for which they so greedily hunger.
“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.”
IN FACT, one good way to tell a counterfeit Christian is by how much they babble on about this present world and their many plans for making it a better place–for themselves and their families.
IS the reader focused on how to make this world a better place?
There is still yet a little time to change directions (repent)?

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
