"Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom." (Luke 12:32)
These words contain a great secret. Many have misunderstood them. But they are neccessary to understand, rightly, to be able to recognize what and how God is working in the world, today.
What kingdom was Jesus talking about? The kingdom of David. The prophets had said that this kingdom would never cease. And yet, when ancient Israel was destroyed by the Romans and the Jews spread all over the world, wasn't that kingdom of David ended? No, apparently not, as Jesus said that it was transferred to the disciples. So what does this mean? The Christians didn't found any nations. So how could the kingdom of David continue through them?
Well, now we have to stay clear of a lot of traps, that christians have fallen into regarding these things. One of those traps was when the supposed christian emperor Constantin turned the roman empire into a "christian" empire. Was that the revived kingdom of David? History shows it was not. It was quite the opposite. So where was the kingdom during those days? It was among the spirit filled disciples of Jesus. It was where they lived, and where they moved in the world.
Now, another trap is to assume that this kingdom is only a spiritual kingdom, and that it cannot influence a nation, or the forming of a nation, or a political unit. To assume that, it would deny the power of God, to transform and change things in this world.
What was it that changed the roman empire, and its peoples? It was the christian assemblies, who spread to all its corners. There was something good going on, among all the peoples, but then it went too far. It was when christianity was made the state religion in the roman empire, and a certain brand of christianity was given all the privileges, while christians of other brands were outlawed, or remained outlawed just as under the heathendom.
If the romans had given the freedom to a larger variance of christian faith, then the kingdom of God and David could have lived there and thrived. Now instead, it had to recede back to the small groups of true christians, while the privileged variety took on a whole other path.
If we use this thought as a pattern of recognition through history, we will be able to trace where the kingdom of David has resided, and made its impacts, in the earthly nations, during this age. We will understand that not all nations always have been under the spire of the devil. There have been, so to speak, good incursions, when great revivals have come to a nation, and that nation has begun to act out that good influence, in defence, or as liberator, of other nations heavily suppressed by the evil powers. You may begin to see where this is going now. There are some countries, in the history of Europe, that seem to have had a divine hand guiding them, while being attacked by other nations. It would be a long stretch to say that both sides in these conflicts were under evil influence.
"Schwedische Rettung der Christlichen Kirchen"
("The Swedish Rescue of the Christian Church" (German leaflet from 1631))
For example, during the reformation age, when newly protestant areas of northern Germany were attacked by catholic forces, and the also newly protestant Swedish nation decided to defend those areas - this was seen by those northern germans as an act of God, because otherwise they would have been exterminated, and forced to go back to catholicism. It was this and subsequent wars that stopped catholicism from taking all of Europe, and gave the freedom for the protestant nations to develope into what they are today. To assign this to an evil prince, would be very illogical, not to say blasphemous.
Then, after the role of Sweden was over, it seems that England inherited the spire. And then, to make this short, it went to the USA. Without these countries, there had never been a protestant, western civilisation, with democracy, cleansed by wave after wave of revivals, world missions, and much more. Are we to say all of this was achieved through rivalling evil princes? No, this was the hand of God, the kingdom of David, working through the christian influence in these nations.
Today, we see exactly the same pattern, with other enemies of freedom and christianity rising against the country where the influence of christianity is as strongest. To not see this, and the role of this country, inspite of this or that president, is blindness. And treason.
You should think deep before you accuse that country for being an instrument of the devil, or set up by free masons or what ever. Or calling it Babylon. Because that is exactly what its enemies want you to do. They want you to begin to doubt, and for you to turn against each other instead of being united against the enemies of all that your country stands for.
Just because there are leaders that are not saints, it doesn't mean the hand of God has left you. Ancient Israel had bad leaders too, but the promise of God remained, to the house of David. Everywhere where there are christians, there is the house of David (and I'm not denying the modern nation of Israel as set up by God [in preparation for things to come]), and where there are many christians, there is also a concentration of good, that God will use to influence that nation and (through it) other nations, in the world.
Some might say: But our nation kills innocents! Our culture is promoting idolatry! Other gods are revered, there is sin everywhere flooding like a stream of hell!
Yes there is, but so was also the case in ancient Israel. It didn't take away God's promises. It didn't mean Israel wasn't established by God. It was bad, and it lead to the destruction in the end, but that nation could have repented, and it did, several times, under good leaders. They didn't give up, didn't hand the spire over to satan and set themselves apart from things.
I think this whole thing that has begun to be preached; USA was set up by the freemasons to be the seat of antichrist, is a lie from hell, for hell to be able to take over. If no one believes in the divine role of USA any longer, the faith factor is gone, that which was holding the nation up from the beginning, and the darkness will come, will take over, will have its way, and proclaim it was there from the beginning, and take God out of the role totally.
The Fremasons didn't found America. The founding fathers didn't found America. God did.
Take away America (US), and the rest of the freedom aspiring peoples in the world will have no chance to defend themselves against the unseen powers of the air, the world rulers of darkness. They will take up where they left; catholicism will awake, nazism will awake, islam is already awakening.
Don't let the devil take away from you, your divine destiny.
