Once upon a time, there was–in America and other countries–little snippets of public-mindedness called public service announcements.
A public service announcement (PSA) is a message in the public interest disseminated without charge, with the objective of raising awareness of, and changing public attitudes and behavior towards, a social issue. In the UK, they are generally called ‘public information films‘ (PIFs); in Hong Kong, they are known as ‘announcements in the public interest’ (‘APIs’).
Although almost ALL PSAs were little bits of propaganda, their short messages many times DID provide some HEALTHY food for thought about HEALTHY ideas as well.
Some PSA campaigns lasted for a VERY long time and became ingrained into the public’s awareness.
One of the earliest television public service announcements came in the form of Smokey Bear whose “Only you can prevent forest fires” campaign became famous and ran for decades.
With all of the preceding in mind, we would like to present ETPR’s own public service announcement for the end times.
“Resist the calls to rebel. To rebel is a CHOICE: do not make the WRONG choice! Unless their laws CLEARLY contradict God’s laws: obey the civil authorities. Obey God’s Word: do NOT rebel!”
There are a GREAT many pieces featured in the Corporate Media (Satan’s Mouthpiece) these days about the need to REBEL.
Sometimes, those pieces use phrases which urge rebellion WITHOUT using the words ‘revolt,’ revolution’ or ‘rebellion.’
Sometimes, those pieces are written in the name of GOVERNMENT FIGURES, in which they urge REBELLION against the same government they represent (or used to represent). These use phrases such as “Take back our country!” or “Stand up to tyranny! Throw the bums out!” [Left unsaid is the fact that “throwing the bums out” is a NEVER-ENDING job: there is an ENDLESS supply of bums who will rush to take the place of ANY and ALL bums who are thrown out.]
Some of these pieces are authored by well-known men of the world who come from the churches, the culture or some other sphere controlled by the world.
REGARDLESS, the reader is NOT to rebel…
…IF the reader is to remain safe, secure and obedient to God’s Word.
“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.”
“Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.”
“Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work, To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.”
“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.”
EVEN IF there comes a time when the civil authorities act contrary to the Word of God, there is NOWHERE in the Bible declaring it to be okay for man to rebel.
EVEN IF there comes a time when the civil authorities act contrary to the Word of God, the reader is advised to take action OTHER THAN REBELLION.
“But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.”
The reader can then consider this as a sort of PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT.
Do NOT rebel.
WHAT does the reader think of all of the chatter about ‘tyrants’ and ‘ungodly men running the USA into the ground’?
DID the reader ever stop to consider that those who chat about ‘ungodly men’ are MOST LIKELY to be ‘ungodly men’ themselves?
It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?
THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“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. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
