This is a letter to our friends –
How big is your God!
“TO understand political power right, and derive it from its original, we muſt conſider, what ſtate all men are naturally in, and that is, a ſtate of perfect freedom to order their actions, and diſpoſe of their poſſeſſions and perſons, as they think fit, within the bounds of the law of nature, without aſking leave, or depending upon the will of any other man. … “The ſtate of nature has a law of nature to govern it, which obliges every one: and reaſon, which is that law, teaches all mankind, who will but conſult it, that being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, liberty, or poſſeſſions: for men being all the workmanſhip of one omnipotent, and infinitely wiſe maker; all the ſervants of one ſovereign maſter, ſent into the world by his order, and about his buſineſs; they are his property, whoſe workmanſhip they are, made to laſt during his, not one another’s pleaſure:…” [John Locke, ‘Of Civil Government’ Book II chapter II’] (Note – Copied from ‘old English’ where s looks like f.)
Opposed to this philosophy is man’s selfish desire to be his own god. “Common sense” as opposed to foolishness. – Reason vs. insanity!
From the beginning, it has been the same conflict. The Lord, Creator of the universe, has been trying to teach us (humans) how to relate properly to Himself and others.
He gave Moses the Ten Commandments – – How to worship Him: One God; No graven images; Do not use His name in vain; Remember the sabbath, keep it holy. How to get along with others: Honor your mother and your father; Do not bare false witness (i.e. Don’t lie); Do not steal: Do not murder; Do not commit adultery; Do not covet. (Note – God’s law makes common sense.)
Even Christ was asked, “What is the most important law?” He answered. Love God and love others.
Today, all the ungodly forces have been mustered in a battle for a man made “One World Government”.
The Godly forces have been mustered to support the establishment of His Kingdom in Heaven and on earth.
NEITHER SIDE CAN AFFORD TO LOSE!
God never loses! We will win this battle on our knees, and possibly with our blood. Read your Bible daily, walk humbly before your God, pray fervently, monitor www.Frank Speech.com.
