The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates

The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates

When a State (through a ruling party) attacks citizens’ God-given rights and freedoms, can something be done about it? More specifically, when human authority directly contravenes God’s laws and instructions, must citizens accept such a tyrannical abuse of authority? Concerning civil government, what is the doctrine of the lesser magistrates, and what is interposition? Perhaps you must stand in the gap during a time of crisis.

Civil Disobedience

Civil Disobedience

We do not know the timing of end time events, but it seems clear that the global scene is slowly but surely being “greatly reset” for a one world government, out of which a global religious system and ten kings will arise—and out of which the Antichrist will come (cf. Dan 7:23-25; Rev 13; 17). Evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. An anti-nationalist process will gather steam in favour of one global government, ultimately falling under the man of lawlessness (cf. Dan 11:36-39; 2 Thes 2:3-9). The difficult topic of civil disobedience will become more and more relevant.

The Great Reset in 2021?

The Great Reset in 2021?

Since about June 2020, various unelected entities have been marketing a ‘Great Reset’ of the whole world. Spearheading this initiative is the World Economic Forum (‘WEF’), aided and abetted by the IMF, Prince Charles, politicians such as Justin Trudeau, John Kerry, etc. — and not a few super-wealthy people. In July 2020, the WEF published a book about the ‘Great Reset’, and its website is devoted to this topic. In November 2020, Time magazine pictured ‘The Great Reset’ on its cover. But does any of this possibly have Biblical and prophetic significance?

The Day of Jesus Christ

The Day of Jesus Christ

This Age and the Age to Come

This Age and the Age to Come

The Bible refers to ‘this age’ and the ‘age to come’ (cf. Luk 20:34; Eph 1:21; Heb 6:5). For example, Jesus tells the religious leaders of Israel that the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in ‘this age or in the age to come’ (Mt 12:32). What is meant by ‘this age’, when did it start, and how will it end? What is meant by the ‘age to come’?

The Star of the King of the Jews

From Jerusalem to Bethlehem, yes even into the village, the star guided us until it stood above the place where the Child was. The journey was long and wearisome, but worth it. In the house we saw the Child, fell down and worshipped Him. Gaspar opened our treasures. We gave Jesus gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

The State God

The State God

Five years ago, a brother hinted that if I wanted to know what was going on in the ‘real world’, I should read the business pages less, and follow politics more. My lifelong interest has always been theology; I am interested in connecting general and specific revelation, and how the end is declared from the beginning. And so, despite some concerns about the lingo and vocabulary of the laws of the various lands, I took my brother’s advice. I was immediately intrigued by this new-found interest, and to my surprise, I soon found out that the concepts I ran across were quite familiar.
