Donald Trump is about to take the oath of the office of President of the United States. Is he for real or is he a part of an elaborate hoax to make it look real planned years ago? Will he try to right the ship or will he continue the course to plunge America deeper into Communist globalism? Will he “make America great again”? I don’t know what’s going to happen, but we’ll find out. The nature of law will tell the tale.
One thing is for certain. It’s not up to Donald Trump to save the world. It’s up to you and me to be bold to expose wickedness, stand in its way and reinstate righteousness, order and peace in the city, country or town where we live.
The Nature of Law
In order to do that, we must be knowledgeable about what is going on in our neck of the woods and we must know the truth. And to know the truth, we must know what the Bible says and means. In the Bible you will find the truth defined in biblical laws. It’s in God-ordained laws that we find the nature of law, that is, how things are supposed to work and why they don’t.
The nature of law reveals that when an individual life, marriage, family or government is in a state of chaos and disorder. It is a sign that some law has been transgressed. Peace and order can be restored if that particular law is obeyed and carried out. That’s the unalterable nature of law.
The Law of Money
The nature of law reveals what is wrong and why. For example, take the law of just weights and measures based on the commandment “You shall not steal” (Exodus 20:15). Though most people are not necessarily conscious of the inflation that is unjustly stealing their labor, the majority feel it unconsciously. Many are having a difficult time trying to “make ends meet.” This adversity has negative consequences on one’s well-being and adds undo pressure to family life. Both parents feel they have to work just to make it and their children suffer. Not much time left over except to work. Everybody is “chasing the rabbit.”
We got into this position a long time ago when Congress, in 1913, abdicated its duty under law to coin Money (just weights and measures) and gave the power to issue currency to a private banking elite (the Federal Reserve Bank). As a result, the power to control the People of the United States was handed over to the bankers. They can manipulate the economy to cause prosperity or bankruptcy. As a result, people’s lives are thrown into chaos and disorder at a whim.
The nature of law always explains that certain conditions reveal that a law has been violated or obeyed.
The Law of Sexual Conduct
And then there is the nature of law regarding sexual conduct. The law of God and of nature, therefore, reveals the truth that a heterosexual relationship is good. It provides for peace and order and blessing.
Violation of that law, such as expressed in the homosexual movement and other such perversions, results in deterioration and destruction of everything good. The nature of law is always consistent and the results speak for themselves.
Forces against the Nature of Law
Donald Trump, no matter how good his intentions may be, will probably have little effect on the “progressive” powerful forces that march on to try to defy and overthrow God’s laws and natural law.
If you believe that the powers-that-be will stop their agenda because of President Trump and throw in the towel, then you’re dreaming. They are not going to hand over the scepter to Mr. Trump any time soon.
The avowed enemies of Jesus Christ and His Kingdom are not interested in compromise. No. Their intent is to literally destroy all opposition to their schemes. It is a fight to the death.
We Have a Choice
So, we have a choice now – an opportunity. Either we commit to enter into this war, or ignore it and back off.
I am confident, however, and optimistic that Jesus Christ and His Covenant People can and will defeat the present-day haters of the laws of God. Where do we begin? First, we must know the Word of God – what it says and means. Second, we must search out opportunities to get informed about what is going on around us. Third, we must inform our civil leaders what God’s law says on the issues at hand and hold them accountable.
Transformation is up to us in the Name and Power of Jesus Christ.
