Jesus is not desirous at all for you or me to be under any other authority than His. His authorities here on earth are God's ministers, not the IRS (Romans 13:1,4). False prophets today have written new Bibles stating that God's authorities are the IRS and other worldly agencies.

The Bibles that teach these fallacies are world government Bibles and are not of the Lord at all. The world government and church has declared war on God, His church, and His saints (Revelation 12:17). These authorities are not from God but from the devil.

The Apostle Paul said, through the Holy Spirit, they are preachers of another gospel which is no Gospel (Galatians 1:6-7). The Apostle also stated, "But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed" (Galatians 1:8-9). Those who preach another gospel are of the devil (John 8:44). God would never put you or me under subjection to obey the sinful commands and doctrines of devilish men and women. The original Greek and King James Version Bibles use the words "the nations" and "tax collectors" in describing sinful men (Matthew 21:31).

God is not a confusionist, but is the Author of perfect peace and a sound mind (Isaiah 26:3, II Timothy 1:7). The world and its doctrines are the enemy of your peace. God commands from us perfection in Him. He wants us to be righteous and holy through His Word. Righteousness and holiness are one and the same. Without holiness (righteousness) no man shall see God (Hebrews 12:14). Perfection is putting on the mind, the thinking of Christ. Christ is the Word of God. His Word, His mind, is righteousness and holiness, perfection.

Do the world authorities want you to be righteous and holy? Do the world authorities want you to put on Christ (holiness and righteousness)? The answer to these questions is no. The way that righteousness and holiness, the mind of Christ is received is by the hearing of the Word and the diligent searching of the Holy Scriptures. This is why the government, the judicial system, has taken away the true Bible out of school. This is why the government is closing churches, arresting pastors, evangelists, ministers, and true Christian people, and is busy pumping the minds of God's created human race full of doubt in God, and full of faith in the "new world order," the United Nations, and one-world, satanic church, which God's Word says is the last worldly government, powered exclusively by Satan himself.

God's Holy Word says, "For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's" (I Corinthians 6:20). The price by which you and I were bought with was the Son of God who was spent (slaughtered) on the cross that you and I could be salvaged from the dreadful confinement in flames of the eternal hell, mentioned in the real Bible (Old and New Testaments), dictated by the real God and His real Son, Christ Jesus, and through the real prophets and the real apostles. They have told the real truth. "We ought to obey God rather than men" (Acts 5:29).

Jesus told the Devil, and this reproof is for everyone, "Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve" (Matthew 4:10).

After all the condemnation that is written in Holy Scripture regarding those who join and serve the one-world government and church system, don't you think it very foolish to think of the beast as being an authority to obey and serve? Let it never be!!

"Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power (lasting, Godly, good power) but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God" (Romans 13:1). This means the powers that God has ordained, authorized, and instructed to the world are His devoted servants, consecrated, as He has commanded, away from the world system to do God's will (Revelation 18:4). And the will of God is to believe on him whom God has sent (John 6:29).

"The blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin" (I John 1:7). Behold God will not cast away an innocent man, neither will he uphold the evildoers (Job 8:20). They that hate God shall be clothed with shame. And the tent (the house) of the wicked shall be no more (Job 8:22). God is wise in heart and mighty in strength. "Who hath hardened himself against him; and hath prospered?" (Job 9:4).

The world today is in desperate need of sustaining strength and rock solid support. The true saint of God who has gone through the fires of this world's persecutions and has prevailed, has sought out and found support from God, away from the enemies' hold. We that have found the support can give you insight, guide you to it. We who have achieved, have done so by paying heed to the scriptural, loving concern of God. The true Christian that values the unparalleled strength and support of God has found the secret to attain it, God's favor of deliverance. The Christian saint knows that God honors those who honor Him. God's saint knows that the secret of this is to flee all unrighteousness and unholiness. All of the instructions regarding the beauty of the Lord's care are found by the true seeker of God's wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.

All that are in the world, joined together, can never be the friend to you as much as the Almighty God, through His Son, Christ Jesus. All those of this present secular world, joining hands and assembling themselves together cannot produce the benefits of God for you, nor do they of the secular world possess the spiritual knowledge to obtain the gifts of God that are possible to obtain.

It was only the Lord who came to this world and left the sweet-smelling odors of his comfort behind Him. The Lord God has filled my mind and my heart with peace and joy; the sails of my ship with the mighty wind of His Spirit. He has lifted me off of the marble slab of the time that I was once dead, but now I am alive because I live in Christ.

The world is mercifully ordered to enter the Ark of safety. This Ark is Christ. Get on board. Lay no more ashore. God has made steady my heart. He will stay also yours in wars, persecutions, fears, afflictions, sorrows, all loss, and every temptation.

If you will not repent and receive the Lord, you shall surely not have the Lord, but will be gone away forever. The fallen have fainted because of unbelief. By faith are you saved and by doubt are you damned. "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house" (Acts 16:31).

If you would like to know Jesus as many millions have known Him; if you seek salvation, eternal life, peace, and comfort in a very dangerous world; if you seek all of God's support and safety and will willingly be subject under His great and mighty authority and power; you can have all that He promises now, because all power in heaven and on earth belongs to Him (Matthew 28:18). "And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Acts 2:21).


My Lord and my God, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God. 2 I believe that He died on the cross and shed His precious blood for the forgiveness of all my sins. 3 I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit 4 and that He sits on the right hand of God at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart and I invite You into my heart, Lord Jesus. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that You shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 You will not turn me away, Lord Jesus, You will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because Your Word, the Bible says so. 8 Your Word says that You will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that You have heard me, and I know that You have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank You, Lord Jesus, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as You command and sin no more. 11

You've just completed the first step in a series of five steps which are necessary to receive salvation. Your second step is to deny yourself and take up the cross daily for the purpose of mortifying yourself, that is, for putting to death your own will, your soulful self, and the world with all of its lusts. All these must be baptized into the death of Christ.

Step three is your resurrection from the satanic life of Adam unto the sinless life of Christ. Step four is your ascension into a position of authority to reign for God on earth, and the fifth step is to reign for God on earth to the end for the purpose of bringing about the kingdom of Heaven on earth. You must learn the Word of God, then submit yourself and do what the Word says, so that the Church and the world may see evidence of your submission to God's Word, His order, and His authority in and by you.

Praise the Lord. May God reward you abundantly.
