Democracy and America
by aymon de albatrus
"Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people." (Pro 14:34)
Dear friends, this evening I shall talk about something very near to your lives: Democracy & America. What I have to say is not for the faint hearted, so you may wish to leave now. If you stay, please do not be upset with me, for I just preach what I believe the Lord has given, and I make the words of Paul my own: Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? (Galatians 4:16), hoping this is not the case. You may take this as a voice of a man that cries in the desert.
Now, before I begin, I want you to do one of three things for me:
1. If you agree with what I say, good, then take it as a confirmation of your thinking,
2. If you are not sure, then place what I say on your spiritual shelves. In time the Lord will reveal to you whether or not to make it part of your spiritual reference,
3. If you disagree with me, then dismiss it altogether, relax and be happy.
Personally, I have always loved America; America has been a great nation, it is a great nation and it would be a great nation. America has given so much to the world, both in money and in men. Just in WWII America gave the lives of 400K men to save the butt of the Europeans. The recompense received is ingratitude, just look at the recent French antics. But America will do it again, it cannot deny itself, for that is its good nature.
However, America, notwithstanding the much good done, is in grave danger, both from within and from without, for it is moving away from the Lord. The men have failed God and let all sort of iniquities invade their families and nation.
In my opinion September 11 was a warning from the Lord. But has America heeded the warning? Has Americas really repented and returned to the Lord? The painful answer has to be a big fat NO. Recently you have had a Recovery day, but not a Repentance day.
America is at a crossway, it can do only one of two things: Repent and Return to the ways of the Lord, or continue on this other way and be lost as Israel of old.
My challenge to you all today (especially the men) is: "will you give your life to save your Country?" This great country is in desperate need of men of God, well shod in Scripture and in Sound Doctrine and truly inspired and determined with full conviction. Earnestly study to present yourself approved to God, a workman unashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth. (2 Timothy 2:15)
My message today is to briefly analyse the state in which we men have fallen into and to challenge us men to come out of it. As Adam was responsible for the Garden of Eden we men are responsible for our families and our nation. But, as he failed, we are failing too. Men, we have lost our manhood and have been reduced to "Homers" of the TV cartoon Simpsons, you know "eheer where are my socks Marg". Just look at any other show on the telly (or anywhere else) and you will see that men are portrayed as babbling baboons, mindless dodos and brainless troglodytes. The whole media, newspapers, the legal system and especially schools not only program our minds to this effect, but worse, they contort the minds of our children and of our women. And guess who is behind all this? … No price in guessing right.
Men we have been reduced into stupid idiots. God did not create us that way; He made us the head and not the tail. But, like Adam we have abdicated our God given command to rule our families and the nation. This is what the Lord says: And Jehovah shall make you the head, and not the tail. And you shall be only above, and you shall not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of Jehovah your God, which I am commanding you today, to be careful to do them. (Deu 28:13) Are we men heeding the Lord’s commands????? NO.
How many of us men can honestly testify to be the head and not the tail?? Not many.
I want you to understand how we got here and to give you the key on how to get out of this quagmire. What I am going to touch is today’s favourite sacred cow; Democracy, for this is the source of our modern woes.
Before I start, I want you to comprehend that when God gave the rulership of the earth to man, it was not only spiritual, but included the whole of life, Spiritual and Natural. We have been conned into believing that man has only spiritual rulership over his family and the nation, when in facts it covers everything, and does everything leave anything out! We are to fully protect our families, and if we do not take on the natural and spiritual running of the family and the nation, these will be taken away from us into perdition. Our stewardship will come to nought, thus our light and salt will be trodden under foot, as useless. This is the single thing that the evil one and unrighteous men have used to topple us from our God given mandate to rule.
We do not need to ask permission to rule, for God has already commanded us men the rulership, we just obey Him and rule, and that is it.
Remember, if you do not rule, then you are ruled. No other alternative.
Let us now have a look at Democracy
Democracy is good in the Natural but a disaster in the Spiritual.
Democracy is not totally a bad thing, and it is the best attempt, so far, of man’s attempt to rule himself. But democracy has ruined us Spiritually and taken away our headship.
The word "Democracy" comes from the Greek:
DEMOS = People and KRATIS = Government .
That is to say: "Government of the People", especially rule of the majority.
Or more fully stated: "Democracy is a system of government of the people, by the people and for the people", as President Lincoln stated in his famous speech at Gettysburg.
That is: "Rights of the people, the Voice of the people, the Ballot of the people, Control of the people", in other words; people are Sovereign, not God.
God is truly absent in all this; therefore, Democracy is not Scriptural.
Democracy, as it is now, is not from God, but from the world and Satan, it is against God and it is not part of the Kingdom of God. Democracy today is a great enemy of Christianity, and most people do not know it. Be assured there is no Democracy in Heaven, there God commands and it is done, pronto. The government in the Kingdom of God is Theocratic, that is: the Sovereign God commands and everyone obeys, most willingly.
Jesus gave the keys of the rules of the Kingdom, when He said:
If you love (agape) Me, keep My commandments. (John 14:15)
Now Love (Agape) is the stuff of the Kingdom.
You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. (John 15:14)
The Church must be Theocratic, NOT Democratic, that is: "Government of God through His appointed authority".
A question to you: "if Democracy is not from God and we are sure that the Kingdom of God is not democratic, at all, why then are we hell bent to bring democracy in the church?". Tilt, tilt, tilt. For example, how do you elect your Elders, by a democratic ballot? The Scriptural way is that the existing pastor/elders, in prayer, seek those whom God has appointed to the position; announce his/their name/s to the congregation to allow any eventual Biblical complaints about these to be passed on privately to the Pastor/elders for a period of time, then the appointment. Elders are appointed for life. It is God that appoints His men, not a democratic ballot.
Is America a Democracy or a Republic?
Now, pure democracy does not exist anywhere, and pure democracy is definitely evil.
A simple illustration as proof of pure Democracy
Five people are stranded in a deserted island and decide do live under democracy. Three are men. One of them proposes a new law making it legal for a man to rape women (under certain circumstances, of course). The three men vote yes. What happens next is "democracy" in action.
Because pure democracy brings about despotic rules, to protect those not in the majority and marginal groups, the power of the ruling majority is curtailed by a limiting document called Constitution. The secular republic or Citizenship Republic is defined as: "a Representative Democracy limited by checks and balances called Constitution". A Constitution nonetheless based on the tenets of men, and not on God's, in fact, God is out in a Citizenship Republic and the nation is secular. Divorce, Abortion, Homosexuality, etc are approved there.
America is a Citizenship Republic (not a democracy) and its Constitution is based partially on the Bible. The drafting of the American constitution did not involve only the Puritans, but unbelievers also, that at best were "deist" believing in some sort of god of their imagining, but not the God of the Bible. So we have a compromised Constitution with some godly input.
What the Puritans wanted was a Righteous Republic, that was truly one nation under God, whose definition is: "The Righteous Republic is first, last and always ‘One nation under God.’" The Bible says, "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord" (Psa 33:12). And that God is Jehovah (Yahweh), not Allah or anyone else. It is "one nation under Jehovah" but such is impossible under democracy. Today pluralistic America is a nation under many gods.
The favourite word in a Righteous Republic is just that, "righteousness." The key verse to this system is Pro 14:34, "Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people." This means that the "Constitution" in a Righteous Republic is the Bible, and every single law must be based on It.
Is that so in America today? Surely not.
WHAT HAS DEMOCRACY BROUGHT TO US?:
Democracy, as desired by the Founding Fathers (Puritans) was intended as liberty from religious oppression, and Christianity was always intended, not Islam and the like. But with the passing of time and moving away from Christian principles, democracy has become a license to promote and defend the most debased abominations in front of God. This was made possible because so many people of different religion brought in their gods with them as also did unbelievers. This means that America now is not truly "one nation under God " but a nation under many gods or even none at all.
My friends, I fear that the famous Pledge to the flag is on the way out:
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.
Which God is referred here? Not necessarily the God of the Bible, Yahweh, but it is "a supreme being". Moreover, many Americans do not believe in a god, at all.
Incidentally do you know how many stripes the USA flag has, and why? 7 Red and 6 White, 13 original colonies
Now let us see just a few things "Democracy" has brought to America and to the world:
Abortion is the most evil thing under the sun. Killing others by own initiative is a very bad thing and a serious sin but killing our own flesh and blood must the very worse action that a man can do to a fellow human being. Yet, we delight in it. Only a few months ago we have seen about one million women marching in Washington strongly protesting against a possible law amendment that would have slightly modify the abortion laws. There is no doubt that nations that practice this dastardly action are under the wrath of God, and the time of His reckoning is fast approaching. Should we vote a president in that approves of abortion?
Abortion was introduced in America in 1973 and do you know how many babies have been killed since then? Around 50 millions. And how many every year? About 1.6 millions.
How many abortions every year in the world? Over 56 millions, that is the population of Italy.
But they say, it is only a piece of unwanted meat. Does this look to you like a piece of growth?
95% of all abortions are due to birth control for personal reasons. We have heard so much justification of abortion due to rape and incest; well it is only 1%. For deformation of the fetus also 1% For danger to the mother, only 2.8% They really did a good job in selling the idea of abortion but then people were just too ready to accept it, for their evil personal pleasures.
To a young Christian woman just about to be marry I said: "you got one year, them make babies". She answered rather abruptly: "No way, if you want to help me give some money to buy furniture for my flat!" It looks like that furniture is more important than children.
And why is Abortion so appealing all over the world, starting from America?
Because people must be free of responsibilities, to have fun.
Homosexuality is cancer to society. God commands that homosexuals be put to death least the land be polluted (defiled):
If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. (Leviticus 20:13)
22 And you shall not lie with a male as one lies with a woman; it is an abomination. 23 And you shall not give your semen with any animal, for uncleanness with it. And a woman shall not stand before an animal to lie down with it; it is a shameful mixing. 24 Do not defile yourself with all these, for with all these the nations have been defiled, which I am casting out before you; 25 and the land is defiled, and I will visit its iniquity on it; and the land is vomiting out its inhabitants; (Leviticus 18:22-25)
And if anyone complains that this was on the OT, Jesus an NT say otherwise:
For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. (Matthew 5:18)
Or do you not know that unjust ones will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be led astray, neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor abusers, nor homosexuals, (1Co 6:9)
In these last days homosexuality is rampant and increasing exponentially. It is seen and approved everywhere, starting from the "Gay Pride" marches in the metropolitan cities of the world to TV shows and in churches and schools. It is so widespread that even the church is paralysed by fear to speak against it in terror of being labelled 'non democratic' and anti-humane. In fact, it is democracy that has given a powerful stimulus to the irreversible growth of homosexuality and forcefully protects and defends it.
Now, we even have protestant bishops openly declaring themselves homosexual. Recently in the American Episcopal church a divorced man with two children and openly declared homosexual has been appointed to the position of bishop, with all honours, no doubt more will follow. And woes and anathemas to you if you speak against this abomination: the media, the legal system and society and even the church are just too ready to crucify you.
They call this "hate crimes". A pastor Ake Green in Sweden has been jailed under this "law" for preaching (in the church) on some of the homosexual passage in the Bible.
God says that if we do not get rid of homosexuality our land will be polluted, defiled and it will vomit out its inhabitants. Is America polluted? You judge.
Drugs and rebellious children
This is a sad one. It is said that a nation cannot survive two lost generations, America as lost one. (But we shall leave that aside for today, for time sake.
God says: Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine by the sides of your house; your sons shall be like olive plants around your table. (Psalms 128:3) Is this so today? Methinks not.
The massive spread of divorce is a direct result of democracy with its egalitarian tenets.
Marriage is a covenant; a Biblical marriage is based on a solemn pact and not on "sexual love" as the current society would want us to believe, urged on by the Hollywood romantic films. Obviously if we "fall in love" we can also "fall out of love" and easily exit a marriage based on this. Statistics show that people "fall in love" for 18 to 20 months then divorce. It is more difficult to get out of a solemn pact, as described in the Bible, than an infatuation. The majority of people marry for Eros, and sometime for Phileo, but rarely for Agape.
Eros (not in the Bile) is the love of sex, the one that overwhelms our society. Phileo is the love of affection, expecting a return otherwise it dies. Agape is the love of God and the love that God command us to put into practice. It is the love of intelligence; it is not based on feelings but a conscious decision to do good to someone without expecting anything in return. In the NT the word love appears 290 times, 90% of appearances are derived from the Greek’s Agape and 10% from Phileo. The God of the Bible asks us to do much Agape and little Phileo. All references to man loving his wife is Agape, whilst for the woman to man is Phileo. All references to man loving God is Agape and loving his enemies is Agape.
A marriage based on Agape will hardly break, a marriage based on Phileo will last just a few years, a marriage based on Eros only a few months.
Divorce currently runs about at 50% of new marriages, the church follow very closely and yet God says: "I hate divorce" in Malachi 3:6.
Marriage is the foundation of the family and the family is the building block of the nation. Destroy marriage and you have destroyed the nation. This is what has happened to the Roman empire and it is happening all over the western world, and America is not excluded.
Now another masterstroke delivered by the evil one.
The second most successful creation of Satan is feminism, the daughter of democracy.
Feminism is total and open rebellion against God and man. Here are some relevant excerpts:
Sheila Coonan: "The facts are that any woman has to recognise herself a lesbian to be fully feminine".
Gloria Stimenn: "In the year 2000 we will grow, I hope, our children to believe in the human potential rather than God's".
Sheila Cronam: "Given that marriage is slavery for women, it is clear that the feministic institution must concentrate to attack the institution of marriage. Freedom for women cannot be won without the abolition of marriage".
Anne Lori Gaylor: "Let's forget the myth of Jesus and let's turn towards the feminine salvation of the world".
Phillis Schlafly: "Feminists are not for equality, but want to kill all that is masculine".
The Declaration of Feminism says: "the end of marriage is necessary for the liberation of women; we are to return to the ancient female religions and magical arts".
The evil one, through democracy and feminism has effectively mentally castrated the men, and now even many ‘little men’ approve of this.
Let me give you an example on how this works:
I once read a secular book that was presenting the story of a famous Roman Gladiator that offended the Emperor who punished him to be taken by a Legion to the frozen North to die there.
On the way they had to pass through the Germanic hordes that were cannibals. Well the General sent an advanced squadron into the woods to see where the hated enemy was, but they were caught, killed and cooked and eaten. Eventually the legion came, the Germans fled leaving behind the cooked, but not fully eaten Romans body parts. The General instead of making a glorious funeral for the heroic fallen, he let the whole region march in front of the gruesome site. A de-habilitating mental castration fell on the whole legion. The next morning the Romans found themselves surrounded by a Germanic multitude and being mentally inhibited they started lamenting their end just like the eaten comrades they had seen the day before.
Seeing this, with determination the Gladiator grabbed a sword from the nearest legionnaire and ran in the open and started shouting in perfect Latin: "You miserable Germanic skunks, dirt of the earth, miserable excrement of your whoring mothers, etc, how can you possibly think to take on the glorious all powerful Romans, run away before we chop you up and make sausages out of you" ….. and more such niceties. Of course the Germans did not understand a word of this, but the legionaries did. Then he beckoned the biggest German klutz to come forward and with just a couple chops he was done, then two brothers, then a group, and so on.
The Gladiator knew his business and in a few moments a large number of lifeless Germans were piled on the ground. Seen this powerful display of Roman potency, in a flash the mental haziness lifted from the Legionnaires’ minds and with a huge shout they come forward and utterly destroyed the numerically superior German horde.
Now this is the situation with us men today, we men are mentally gelded and impotent because we actually believe the Lie.
Another, fully witnessed by myself. I was born in the country and noted this behaviour in the chickens. Unfortunately for them and forbidden by God, most male chicken get the painful physical chop so to become fatter for the 25th of December’s pagan feastings. Well, I noticed that the hens continually attacked these poor creatures for they were males no more, this is where the term "henpecked" comes from, I guess. But more strikingly, I noticed the behaviour in the chicks that did not get the chop. Every spring the brood would hatch and slowly grow. Whilst the "would be" roosters were growing (that fortunately received not the chop to their proverbial for they were selected to fertilise) the hens did henpecked them continually until the roosters would grow big enough to challenge the hens. The battle would be drawn and if the rooster was not ready yet, he would be beaten, but soon after little more growth, another battle would ensue. This time the rooster would prevail and very severely peck the hen to running blood. Afterwards this beaten hen would be the most obedient, and when he called she would be the first one to arrive. Not unlike Shakespeare’s "the taming of the shrew", if you understand what I mean.
This I noticed as a child, but understood not, then. Now I do.
Now, do get me right, I did not say to go home to bash your wives into submission, is that clear! Indeed, God says that man shall love his wife as himself, but he must be the head. All that I am verbalizing is that you must take the leadership of your family, without apologies, just take it for God has already given that to us men and we have failed Him.
I am calling you to change today’s pitiful situation where the men are being mentally castrated and running for cover, chased by aggressive women, henpecking them, when instead they should be the Head and not the tail.
Men, what shall we do when the Islamic hordes come, and they will come? Rely on technology? Technology does not win wars, people win wars, as we have seen in Vietnam and Iraq. Are we going to send our women to defend us? Really?
Men, here is the crunch. Please do not be shocked, all this is strictly Biblical, but foreign in these evil days. Check it for yourselves. If you accept this in your loins it will make you strong and you will not vacillate or fall anymore. You will be firm with a steel backbone.
Do not forget that I am coming against a lifetime of secular brainwashing and I do understand how difficult is to change a lifetime of indoctrination.
The following is the basis to regain the lost manhood and rulership that God has given to the man, not to woman. Besides, do remember my postulate: in life there are only two positions, either you rule or you are ruled. Co-rulership is not a reality.
The key is threefold:
1. You must believe that the bible in its completeness is inerrant as interpreted by the Holy Spirit,
2. You must believe that it is the Bible that interprets the world, the society and times, and not vice versa, the contrary of what we are taught today,
3. You must regain the headship of the family and of the nation.
To regain the headship of the family and of the nation you must know and believe what the Word of God says on the relationship between man and woman.
REFERENCES to this topic.
The order of command in the family is: But I want you to know that Christ is the Head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of Christ. (1 Corinthians 11:3) As categorically expressed: God the Father is above all and he has no head over Him, then Christ has God as head, the man follows with Christ as his head and finally the woman that has the man as her head. The woman is not ‘head’ for she was specifically created in function of the man and for his needs as convenient helper.
This means that the woman cannot rule at all, for she was created only for the need of man.
1. Woman was created for the exclusives need of the man, to be his helpmeet with whom he might delightfully converse, and be in all respects agreeable to him, and entirely answerable to his case and circumstances, his wants and wishes, "8 For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. 9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man." (1Co 11:8-9 AV)
2. This means that without the man there would not have been a need for woman,
3. Woman was cloned from man and is therefore of the same essence and has the same access to salvation through Christ, but she has NOT the same function, for man is: the image and glory of God. But woman is the glory of man,
4. Woman is not superior to man, as modern gurus would want us believe, she is different, she is the suitable helper of man with a different function,
5. Woman is to submit (hupotasso) to man (her husband) and: see that she respects and reverences her husband [that she notices him, regards him, honors him, prefers him, venerates, and esteems him; and that she defers to him, praises him, and loves and admires him exceedingly (Amplified Bible Eph 5:33)]. (but Reverence is Fear - Phobeo in the original Greek, also in 1Pe 3:2)
6. The sphere of the woman’s activities, as defined by God, is her husband, her family and her home. (1Ti 5:14) Woman was never intended to have a private career of her own, however she may cultivate little business to help her family under the approval of her husband, but always after her primary duties are fulfilled. The wife may augment the family income by performing home business, with the consent of her husband. In case of severe crisis the wife may seek temporary external employment, with the consent of her husband. However this situation must be considered as slavery and the family must endeavour to do all to come out of it, with strong petitions to the Lord,
7. The worldview (satanic) has permeated and saturated the church and now there seem to be little difference between the two. The men have abdicated their God given role of ruling and headship, for they have listened to "Eve", a-la-Adam, and have placed woman ruling over them. The situation has now gone so far to be practically irreversible, apart the direct intervention of the Lord. Still the Lord has NOT left himself without faithful witnesses: "But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal." (Rom 11:4)
Let us hear Isaiah’s lament: As for My people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over him. Oh My people, your rulers cause you to go astray, and they swallow the way of your paths. (Isaiah 3:12 LIT)
In America, are women ruling over men, more and more or not? Our schools and the judiciary are, more and more manned by women, where do you think this will lead to?
Is God pleased with that?
God has given the headship to the men and we have given that away. We must regain it otherwise we shall not be able to stand when the Islamic hordes will come, and they will come.
America was and still is a great nation, but it is in a grave danger for its iniquities are crying to high heaven and the Lord has already sent a warning, September 11. Have you noted that the Lord very often uses the sons of Ishmael to punish His wayward people as He did with Israel of old! We have seen that recent terrible warning God sent to America (a nation mostly founded on Christianity but now wayward) that, indeed, came through the Ishmaelite.
Has America recognized the hand of God in this? NO
Has America ceased its abominations, such as: Abortions, Divorce, Feminism, Homosexuality Family breakdown, Paganism and a host of other detestable abominations? NO.
Has America repented and returned fully to the Lord? NO
Brothers our society is in a mess because we have walked away from the Lord and good men have given up and ran to the hills.
This evening I have two challenges for you, one for every one, and another for a few special men:
Men, I want you to be like the Bereans (Act 17:11): go and check if what I am saying is Biblically true (surely pastor Scotty can help you) and then take the leadership of your families, do not ask for permission or negotiate, just take it, for you already have all permissions, in fact you are commanded to do so by God. But be wise, remembering that your family has received this democratic brainwashing for years and cannot change overnight. It will take some time, but you go on with determination and sound wisdom, all the while remembering that you are the head and not the tail, ‘thus saith the Lord’. Do it with determination, your family will follow you if you really mean it.
For some of you I want you to meditate upon: But what does the Divine answer say to him, "I reserved to Myself seven thousand men who did not bow a knee to Baal." 1Ki 19:18 (Romans 11:4) This was said by the Lord to Elijah when he was fleeing from queen Jezebel (the "mother" of all feminists) that threatened to kill him after he slaughtered 450 of her priests.
Here is the challenge: is there in this room at least one of these 7,000 men that has not bent the knee to Baal? Is there a man that would dedicate his life to really stand up for God? Is there a man that is prepared to risk all, for the Kingdom of God? Is there one that feels inside a compelling call to do just do that?
BUT IT HAS TO BE A REAL CALL, REMEMBERING JESUS’ WARNING:
59 And He said to another, Follow Me. But he said, Lord, allow me to go first to bury my father. 60 But Jesus said to him, Leave the dead to bury their dead, but going out, you announce the kingdom of God. 61 And also another said, I will follow You, Lord, but first allow me to take leave of those in my house. 62 But Jesus said to him, No one putting his hand on the plow, and looking at the things behind, is fit for the kingdom of God. (Luke 9:59-62)
26 If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brothers and sisters, and besides, even his own life, he cannot be My disciple. 27 And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me, he cannot be My disciple. (Luke 14:26-27)
America is at a crossway, it can do only one of two things: Repent and Return to the ways of the Lord, or continue on this other way and be lost as Israel of old.
The chances are that it will do the latter one, unless th Lord intervenes.
Let us pray for America.
