THE LAW OF THE LAND IS GOD'S LAW
by Tony Alamo
"Spiritually prosperous are you whenever they shall revile you and persecute you ["revile" means to despise; to subject to verbal abuse; vituperate; to use abusive language; rail] and say every pernicious thing ["pernicious" means to say false things about you or someone else to destroy you or them; to cause violent death; noxious, highly injurious or destructive behavior; deadly, archaic, wicked, exceedingly harmful behavior; irreparable harm done through evil or insidious, corrupting or undermining. One example is accusing me of manufacturing child pornography, of being involved in white slavery, of child molesting, and other such fallacies. The term noxious also implies injuries, injury through poisoning, or the baneful notion that discipline destroys creativity ("noxious" applies to what is both offensive and injurious to the health or mind, such as noxious chemicals)]" (Matt. 5:11, Greek).
More evil than anyone are those who say the Bible, God's Word, is evil and dangerous. These are the Vatican, the government that it controls, and its mouth, the media, are pounding this notion into people's heads and souls!!
Jesus continues, "...and [when they] say every pernicious thing against you, speaking deliberate falsehoods on account of Me [who tells you to discipline the unruly and to preach all My word]. Be rejoicing and exult exceedingly, because your reward is great in Heaven. For in this manner they persecuted the prophets who were before you" (Matt. 5:11-12).
You are the salt of the earth but if you begin to worry about what people will say or do to you for teaching and doing what Jesus teaches you to preach, teach and do, then you are no longer the salt of the earth—you are not able to benefit humans any longer. In other words, don't be afraid of what people can do to you, but fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of mankind (Eccl. 12:13). Ye are the light of the world, if you tell the world what the whole Bible says.
All the land of this world belongs to God, and He and He alone created it. So we are to keep God's law all over the land—the world. All states, all countries, the laws of God remain the same, nothing is changed!! The Kingdom of Heaven is to be established here on earth as it is in Heaven. God's law doesn't change from state to state or country to country!
Romans 13 states that we, God's ministers, are the rulers of this (God's) earth. When chapter 13 says to obey magistrates, this means those who are God's ministers and, of course, God Himself has appointed them to keep God's law enforced.
The ordinances of men or man are not the law of God. God commands to keep His laws. Man's laws such as speed limits, traffic rules, no smoking ordinances, etc. are all Bible-based anyway.
The heavyweight laws of God are these: to "love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, soul, mind, and strength."1 "Thou shalt have no other gods before Me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image...Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them...Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain. Honor thy father and thy mother...Thou shalt not murder. Thou shalt not commit adultery. Thou shalt not steal. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor. Thou shalt not covet" (Exodus 20:3-17). "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel [distribute the gospel] to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned" (Mark 16:15-16). "For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death" (Romans 8:2).
Those who believe that man's ordinances are more important than God's laws are blasphemers and are deliberately being stupid, evil. They will surely spend eternity in Hell for their deliberately evil stupidity.
The word "ordinance" means an authoritative decree or direction a (man-made, good law, not usurping the law of God) set forth by a godly, governmental authority; a municipal regulation, never changing the law of God Almighty. The godly ordinance is the law of God, something denied or ordained or decreed by God, the only true Deity, the Father, the Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.
An evil ordinance is that children cannot be corrected or disciplined because that ordinance is against God's law, His Word. Another evil ordinance is a Christian can't preach, teach, and distribute God's Holy Word, because that ordinance makes God's Word void. Evil ordinances are gross sin!! Another evil ordinance, a presumptive one, is to presume someone to be guilty of a crime before they're found guilty!! It is evil because it is not of God; it is of the devil!!
In the eyes of God it is illegal to take or kidnap children from their parents. God calls it menstealers. First Timothy 1:8-12, "But we know that the law [of God] is good, if a man use it lawfully; Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for MENSTEALERS, for LIARS, for PERJURED persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to [God's] sound doctrine; According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust. And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry."
