If God is for the ron paul revolution then who can stand against it?!"

"I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proof I see of this truth ---that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid?" -Benjamin Franklin -Debates in the Constitutional Convention -June 28, 1787 Unlike ·

"Behold, the men whom ye put in prison are standing in the temple, and teaching the people. Act 5:26 Then went the captain with the officers, and brought them without violence: for they feared the people, lest they should have been stoned. Act 5:27 And when they had brought them, they set [them] before the council: and the high priest asked them, Act 5:28 Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man's blood upon us. Act 5:29 Then Peter and the [other] apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. Act 5:30 The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. Act 5:31 Him hath God exalted with his right hand [to be] a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. Act 5:32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and [so is] also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him. Act 5:33 ¶ When they heard [that], they were cut [to the heart], and took counsel to slay them. Act 5:34 Then stood there up one in the council, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, had in reputation among all the people, and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space; Act 5:35 And said unto them, Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what ye intend to do as touching these men. Act 5:36 For before these days rose up Theudas, boasting himself to be somebody; to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves: who was slain; and all, as many as obeyed him, were scattered, and brought to nought. Act 5:37 After this man rose up Judas of Galilee in the days of the taxing, and drew away much people after him: he also perished; and all, [even] as many as obeyed him, were dispersed. Act 5:38 And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: Act 5:39 But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God. Act 5:40 And to him they agreed: and when they had called the apostles, and beaten [them], they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. Act 5:41 And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name. Act 5:42 And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ".

As nice as that would be

it's not gonna happen especially since we as a nation do not seek Him. God is not micro managing our lives and definitely isn't involved in our politics. We have been given a "choice" and that choice determines our spiritual salvation. And that salvation is on an individual basis. If there is one thing that libertarians should understand it is personal responsibility.

Ben Franklin didn't know what he was talking about in this regard.

Emphasis on Name* .

+1, thanks for posting the verses above, they are very educational.
Please read 5:27-8, the High Priest commands not to teach name*.
Act 5:40, apostles beaten & commanded Not to speak name* of _ _ .
In the next verse 41, the apostles rejoice that they suffered for his Name* .

Focus & importance in all 3 verses is on The Name* .

You're right

And the true Name should be exalted not hidden. That is why I praise Yahshua for the salvation we have been offered.

"For there is no other Name given under heaven whereby men must be saved"

God help us

"It is impossible for the man of pious reflection not to perceive in it [the Constitution] a finger of that Almighty hand which has been so frequently and signally extended to our relief in the critical stages of our revolution." -James Madison

"The man must be bad indeed who can look upon the events of the American Revolution without feeling the warmest gratitude toward the great Author of the Universe whose divine interposition was so frequently manifested in our behalf. And it is my earnest prayer that we may so conduct ourselves as to merit a continuance of those blessings with which we have hitherto been favored." - George Washington

"We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, ... And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor." -The Declaration of Independence

"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." -2 Chronicles 7:14

“It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till." -J.R.R. Tolkien

ytc's picture

well, the only thing is that God's one day *may* be our

one thousand years and His words are based on the perspective of eternity . . .




What about Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy?

I'm sure there are lots of imaginary characters we can enlist in our struggle.

So let me get this straight

Brahma the creator, Vishnu the preserver and Shiva the destroyer don't exist. Odin the ruler of Asgard and Thor the God of Thunder don't exist. Ra the God of the Sun and Osiris God of the underworld don't exist. Etc Etc Etc . . . but somehow your Jewish God does exist. How convenient. So you're not comfortable with being ruled by Zionist bankers but have no problem with worshiping a non-existent jewish God. I'm just pointing this out, it's not a major concern of mine, your fantasy life is your business but stop shoving it in my face and expecting me to keep my basic common sense to myself.
