“Yay for our hard work making you our slaves”

Watching our leaders applaud themselves for a hard days work reminds me of 1 Samuel 8…

1 Samuel 8 – Israel Asks for a King

6 But when they said, “Give us a king to lead us,” this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the LORD. 7 And the LORD told him: “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king. 8 As they have done from the day I brought them up out of Egypt until this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so they are doing to you. 9 Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will claim as his rights.”

10 Samuel told all the words of the LORD to the people who were asking him for a king.11 He said, “This is what the king who will reign over you will claim as his rights: He will take your sons and make them serve with his chariots and horses, and they will run in front of his chariots. 12 Some he will assign to be commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and others to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and still others to make weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. 13 He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. 14 He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive groves and give them to his attendants. 15 He will take a tenth of your grain and of your vintage and give it to his officials and attendants. 16 Your male and female servants and the best of your cattle[c] and donkeys he will take for his own use. 17 He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his slaves. 18When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, but the LORD will not answer you in that day.”

Anytime you put more focus on a government to provide for you (rather than the leadership that God has over you), that is what you get.

 

We kicked God out of our lives, homes and our country, and have all become slaves to the government…. We have left charity up to others, and they have robbed everyone to line their own pockets.

 

It is time for the church of God to come together, set aside the petty things that separate us, and usher the Kingdom of God back into power. Then we will truly be free in Christ.

 

That is all I am going to say about that.
