Freedom–under Our Rightful King

Jesus said, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).

This is why all the wannabe rulers of the world hate Him. It’s even why their pet academics teach defenseless college students that there’s no such thing as truth–there’s only “your truth” and “my truth,” and somehow the professor’s “truth” always wins.

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the only ruler whose right is absolute, God-given. As far back as David’s time, three thousand years ago, we are told as much in the Psalms. “The Lord said to my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool” (Ps. 110:1). God has promised to put all things under His Son, whose right it is.

Global government types don’t want to hear that! It’s their right, not His! Because they’re so much smarter than us, so much better connected, so much richer–and who is this crucified Jew, to intrude on their turf?

They’ll find out who He is, in God’s good time.

Christ Jesus is the truth, the Word of God made flesh. He has the power to make us free. We are the sheep of His pasture: to the Godless rulers, we are only prey.

Our King is righteous and loving. The Son and the Father are one. God has the power to make His enemies His footstool, and He will do it.

This is the only world government authorized by God. It’s the only one that will be permitted. The Antichrist will set up something that looks like it’s just about there, but it will never get there. He will come close to wiping out liberty forever–but then it’s into the lake of fire with him.

The Lord has spoken it.

 

Bonus Hymn, ‘In Christ Alone’

I’m posting this hymn again because I want to declare the object of my faith, the sole God in whom I trust–In Christ Alone (performed by Keith and Kristyn Getty). To quote the very first line of the lyrics: “In Christ alone my hope is found.”

Not in any global government, or any government of any kind. Not in The Smartest People in the World slapping each other on the back as they swill expensive drinks in Davos. Not in managers, mavens, or morons. Not in judge-of-all-the-earth wannabes who couldn’t umpire a softball game, let alone govern all the earth.

In Christ alone. My king, and the only king whose right it is.

The Lord said unto my lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.   (Psalm 110:1)

We have to hang on until He does it.
