Upon reviewing the secular and religious records of history, plus predictive prophesies from various sources - including and especially the Biblical Judeo-Christian books of Daniel, Matthew, Luke, Acts, Romans, First Corinthians, Second Thessalonians, and Revelation - the perceptive and honest evaluator invaribly comes to the conclusion that the highest and ultimate form of government possible on planet Earth is a theocracy.
On a small and limited scale, such religious totalitarian dictatorship has already transpired time and time again.
For example, we have the inspired Scriptural account of the theocratic-like monarchy-similar reign of Moses ruling over Hebrew-Israel Jews in the Old Testament, and have become aware of the exploits of Alexander the Great, various Caesars of the Roman Empire, Hannibal, Genghis Khan, Napoleon, the kings and prime ministers of England and Israel, the communist leaders of Russia like Lenin and Stalin, Mao's dynasty in China, the Fuehrer of Nazi Germany, dictators of the Middle East like Saddam and Ahmadinejad, American presidents like Washington and Lincoln and the 20th-century notables such as FDR and Truman, JFK and Reagan and George W Bush.
No one has yet acquired complete global control....yet.
But such is predictively prophesied - particularly according to the Scriptural books mentioned above - and going to happen, relatively soon:
Daniel 7:23 Thus he said: "'As for the fourth beast, there shall be a fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all the kingdoms, and it shall devour the whole earth, and trample it down, and break it to pieces."
Matthew 24:27 For as the lightning comes from the east and shines as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.
Matthew 28:3 His appearance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow.
Luke 10:18 And He said to them, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.
Luke 17:24 For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day.
Acts 7:7 "But I will judge the nation which they serve," said God, "and after that they shall come out and worship me in this place."
Acts 17:31 because He has fixed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by a Man whom He has appointed, and of this He has given assurance to all men by raising Him from the dead."
Romans 14:11 for it is written, "As I live," says the Lord, "every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall give praise to God."
Romans 14:12 So each of us shall give account of himself to God.
First Corinthians 15:21 For as by a man came death, by a Man has come also the resurrection of the dead.
22 For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.
23 But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, then at His coming those who belong to Christ.
24 Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father after destroying every rule and every authority and power.
25 He must reign until He has put all his enemies under His feet.
26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death.
27 God has put all things in subjection under his feet." But when it says, "All things are put in subjection under Him," it is plain that He is excepted who put all things under Him.
28 When all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subjected to Him who put all things under Him, that God may be everything to every one.
Second Thessalonians 2:1 Now we implore you, my brothers, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him,
2 that you should not be soon shaken in mind or troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word or letter, as through us, as if the Day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let not anyone deceive you by any means. For that Day shall not come unless there first comes a falling away, and the man of sin shall be revealed, the son of perdition,
4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, setting himself forth, that he is God.
5 Do you not remember that I told you these things when I was still with you?
6 And now you know what holds him back, for him to might be revealed in his own time.
7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already working, only he is now holding back until it comes out of the midst.
8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the breath of His mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming,
9 whose coming is according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 and with all deceit of unrighteousness in those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, so that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie,
12 so that all those who do not believe the truth, but delight in unrighteousness, might be condemned.
13 But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brothers beloved of the Lord, because God has from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth,
14 to which He called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Revelation 2:27 and He shall rule them with a rod of iron, as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, even as I myself have received power from My Father
Revelation 12:5 she brought forth a Male Child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her Child was caught up to God and to His throne
Revelation 19:15 From His mouth issues a sharp sword with which to smite the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron....
As it is now, our country of America is (as Abe Lincoln put it) a republic: of the people, by the people, and for the people...and it is those people - specifically, a majority of them influenced by activist minorities comprising such - who are the highest civil human authority.....not simply The Constitution.....not simply The President.....not simply The Supreme Court.....not even The Congress.
It is the people of and from which American "founding fathers" came, which founding fathers and their supporters created separate "states" each having their own codified "constitution," all of whom created The Constitution to which Amendments were added and occasionally repealed -- seamlessly interwoven in multi-faceted historical precedent and case law -- in agreement with The President and The Supreme Court, empowered and enforced by United States military forces on all echelons (e.g. police, sheriffs, marshalls, National Guard, Marines, and others).
Dissimilar to The Ten Commandments etched by God Himself in mountain stone:
Deuteronomy 9:10 And the LORD gave me the two tables of stone written with the finger of God; and on them were all the words which the LORD had spoken with you on the mountain out of the midst of the fire on the day of the assembly.
....The U.S. Constitution has had Amendments both added and repealed.
One which, understandable and thankfully, was repealed was the liquor-prohibiting 18th Amendment...and the overriding and overruling basis for that was (admittedly or non-admittedly) what is contained in the total contents of the Sacred-66-books Judeo-Christian (Old-and-New-Testament) Holy Bible...both regarding and concerning the production, sale, availability, and use of alcoholic beverages.
So was the 18th Amendment of The Constitution ever "constitutional" - or instead was it temporarily constitutional?
The 19th Amendment, affirming that the right to vote be not prohibited on the basis of "sex," is (in my religious opinion) destined for repeal...partly on the simple basis of faulty wording, because of the inappropriate term used (that is: sex) which should rather be: gender. But even IF that correction was made, the implications resulting from what I consider a sexist mis-addition to The Constitution, are far-reaching...in that undue and needless incitement is imposed upon both men and women for women to harassively and insubordinately violate the intents of such Scriptural passages as Leviticus 27:1-5, Numbers 30, Ecclesiastes 7:26-28, Isaiah 3:12, Nahum 3:13, First Timothy 11:1-16 & 14:33-38, First Timothy 2:12-15, and First Peter 3:7.
At this time, a significant number of increasingly decadent and apostate Americans "on the broad and easy road to destruction," would voice various degrees and severities of objection, citing non-wanted reference to inclusion of particularly-Christian religious mandates on those of pulltabs-gambling and cigarettes-purchasing, wantonly-secular, public society wilfully choosing to be both godless and irreligious.
However, the utterance and display of the phrase: "separation of church and state" is and will continue to be terminology which a majority of agitated law-abiding religious American citizens, and their judicial courts at every level (consisting of both judges and lawyers), determine illegally prejudicial and an intolerable violation against both the Establishment Clause AND the Non-Prohibition Clause of the First Amendment of The United States Constitution.
The reason for that is firstly because use of the word "church" in the unlawful phrase stated above is obviously specifically targeting what it states: churches....with no mention nor reasonable reference nor inference also to: synagogues, mosques, buddhist temples and shrines, and much more.
But IS there First-Amendment Constitutional grounds for inclusion into a Revised Constitution of the now-non-included phrase: "separation of church and mosque and synagogue and shrine and temple and whatever else" to prohibit ALL forms of "religion" having existed, now existing, and to exist within the territorial boundaries of the United States?
When religious terms or symbols are put into public places, or on government property, which religion is supposedly being illegally established?
Should there be, on Government-incepted and Government-maintain national cemeteries, soldier tombstones upon which not only "christian" crosses are engraved, but also ones with swastikas, the star of david, the pentagram of satan, the thumbs-down or raised-3rd-finger insignias, and/or other emblems appearing in general public view?
Those Herodian types who despise certain religious symbols on tombstones, nativity scenes, emblems on State Seals, the "In God We Trust motto on currency, reference to "under God" in The Pledge of Allegiance, etc. are illegally and anti-constitutionally one-sided in mis-claiming that Government-allowed display of everything religious is [alleged] "unconstitutional establishment of religion" - [supposedly] contrary to the Anti-Establishment Clause of part (and ONLY part!) of the First Amendment of The Constitution:
Micah 2:6 "Do not preach" --thus they preach--"one should not preach of such things; disgrace will not overtake us."
Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of humans who by their wickedness suppress the truth.
Second Timothy 4:3 For the time will be when they will not endure sound doctrine, but they will heap up teachers to themselves according to their own lusts, tickling the ear.
Second Timothy 4:4 And they will turn away their ears from the truth and will be turned to myths [Harry Potter, Star Trek, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Shrek, and so on].
They (but admirably, not a majority of sensible and adamently-religious American citizens and voters) frequently, despicably, deplorably, and absurdly disregard and ignore the other phrase of the First Amendment which states:
"...nor prohibit the free exercise of [religion]."
It is because of that second part of the First Amendment that churches, synagogues, mosques, shrines, and more are allowed by Congress and other agencies and officials of United States Government to exist...that Christian and Rabbinical and Imam broadcasters are free to preach and teach the Bible and Torah and Koran, plus disperse Christian and Jewish and Islamic literature to the general public, whenever and wherever and however - without reasonably creating an overt and flagrantly-disruptive public nuisance.
Second Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
The Founding Fathers wisely formulated the precise semantics of both the Anti-Establishment AND the Non-Prohibition clause of The First Amendment, and their obvious intention for proclaiming no establishment of any particular religion was not merely to prevent a tyrannous State Church (like the one they fled from in England at that time) from being the obligatory and only form of denominationally-sectarian religious expression legitimatized, but to referee "a level playing field" and impartially allow the free expression in non-restrained and non-coerced liberty of any and all religions considered by present and future inhabitants on American soil to be "legal" and "legitimate" according to parameters a majority of patriots and citizens agreed upon, tolerated, and/or desired.
Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be proclaimed in all the world as a witness to all nations. And then the end shall come.
Mark 13:10 And the gospel must first be proclaimed to all nations.
Luke 24:47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be proclaimed in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
Romans 16:26 but now has been made plain, and by the prophetic Scriptures, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith.
And there plainly are a plethoria of different religious dogmas, texts, practices, habits, creeds, liturgies, music to not only not be established, but also (and very importantly) not prohibited.
Which religion, religious expression, denomination, gets to be predominant in an authentically-free republic? Who comes out on top, and gets the upper hand?
First John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith.
First John 5:5 Who is it that overcomes the world but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
The diversity is profuse.
For example, one missionary might want to tediously translate whatever versions of the Bible he prefers into 3000 different tribal languages, while another wants to teach all worldwide natives English as their second language by presenting the best of the best English Bible translations to them to learn English with.
First Corinthians 14:2 For one who speaks in a tongue speaks not to men but to God; for no one understands him, but he utters mysteries in the Spirit.
A Bible scholar might positively want to show primitive savages all available English Bible translations "to get the full picture of God's will for everyone," while another Bible scholar might negatively want to condense and synthesize all present texts called "bibles" into one pure Text, retaining what he and The Holy Spirit consider the best English words concordant with the Hebrew Old-Testament and Greek New-Testament inerrant Texts while discarding what he and The Holy Spirit consider aberrant mistakes, non-authorized and misleading synonyms, apostate and cultic miswordings, and obsolete terms or words which have thoroughly and completely changed meanings.
Second Corinthians 4:2 We have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways; we refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God's word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.
A Bible teacher might explain the passage:
Genesis 6:1 When men began to multiply on the face of the ground, and daughters were born to them,
2 the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were fair; and they took to wife such of them as they chose.
3 Then the LORD said, "My spirit shall not abide in man for ever, for he is flesh, but his days shall be a hundred and twenty years."
4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men that were of old, the men of renown.
5 The LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
...by declaring that the daughters born to human men (v.1) were human daughters, and "fair to look upon" (v.2), and that the "sons of God" (v.2) were indeed merely human sons (in stark contrast to what Hebrews 1:14 would term: "ministering spirit" angels) of righteousness like faultless Adam, eerily similar to the following passage in the apocalypse:
Revelation 14:4 These are those who were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are those who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, as a firstfruit to God and to the Lamb.
....but that the sexual seductiveness and enticing display of female bodies caused such righteously-faultless men to matrimonially unite and then copulate with faulty Eve-like daughters of men, thus shortening every human's lifespan to 120 years max.
[ Relating to that, not-so-"alien-being" angels never have, do not, and never will take any human woman as wife nor copulate with such, being that:
Matthew 22:30 ....in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.
...and there is no reason to presume that the sexless nature of angels in heaven AND those appearing-then-disappearing angels who humans have temporarily seen on Earth, neither after The Fall in Eden nor "in the resurrection," will ever suddenly become erotic and sexually reproductive. ]
The passage, of course, related to the morality-capacity contrast between initially-innocent and forbidden-fruit-ingesting guilty and pollutive/defiling Eve, as reiterated both by Solomon and by Saint Paul in his epistle:
Ecclesiastes 7:25 I turned my mind to know and to search out and to seek wisdom and the sum of things, and to know the wickedness of folly and the foolishness which is madness.
26 And I found more bitter than death the woman whose heart is snares and nets, and whose hands are fetters; he who pleases God escapes her, but the sinner is taken by her.
27 Hey, this is what I found, says the Preacher, adding one thing to another to find the sum,
28 which my mind has sought repeatedly, but I have not found. One man among a thousand I found, but a woman among all these I have not found.
29 Hey, this alone I found, that God made man upright, but they have sought out many devices.
First Timothy 2:8 I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling;
9 also that women should adorn themselves modestly and sensibly in decent apparel, not with broided hair or gold or pearls or costly attire
10 but by good works, as befits women who profess religion. 11 Have a woman learn in silence with all submissiveness.
12 I allow no woman to teach or to have authority over men; she is to keep silent.
13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve;
14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.
15 Yet woman will be saved by bearing children, if she continues in faith and love and holiness, with sobriety.
A cultic infidel might assert that Jesus, being The Son of God and thus created His own pure and spiritually-compliant godly mother Mary Himself, committed incest with her by being One with the Trinitarian Godhead who miraculously impregnated her into conception.
An orthdox-fundamentalist genuine Christian might counter with the religious argument that the Son of God did NOT engage in typical vaginal-insertion nor any other intercourse - and thus no fornication whatsoever occurred, but that His Heavenly Father (not fearful and perplexed human daddy-to-become Joseph) gave the command to The Spirit to miraculously impregnate her, causing conception of a helpless-but-Divine Babe who [temporarily] "emptied himself" (Philippians 2:7) of the glory and power He had had in the heavenly realm to be murdered by those He came to try and save:
Luke 1:35 And the angel said to her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God.
Though Mary, in her complete sexual purity and virginity, made up for the power-hungry and gullible failure of Eve, the sexual shenanigans of Tamar (see Genesis 38) and deliberate bathing-body exhibitionism of Bathsheba (see Second Samuel 11) along with a long lineup of female humans since then, involved and involves continual subordination and subjection by human females to human male rule and authority presently continuing to be in full effect to this day....which is why neither inferior-gender Sarah Palin nor inferior-gender Michele Bachmann should become either President or Vice-President of the United States Government.
