This booklet provides documentation that the Kingdom of Heaven is the government of God and is operating in the earth today. It contains a brief history of the Kingdom, the nature and character of its citizens, and how they are different from the nations of the world.
The one thing that sets them apart is their uncompromising commitment to the authority of Jesus Christ. Everything they do is done in the name of the Lord Jesus. Many consider state residency or citizenship in any worldly country to be impossible since they have already given their allegiance to Christ.
Bunyan was abducted while preaching the gospel and brought before the justices. His crime - preaching without a license. He was offered liberty if he would just leave off preaching. Bunyan was uncompromising.
He lay in jail for 12 years - preferring to leave his beloved young family to the care of God, rather than win his freedom by submitting to the state's demands.
Called Out is a practical guide for leaving the world system and becoming a new creature with a new identity.
What is Christian Patriotism? Patriotism is love of country. And the country that we love is the country of our birth.
Christian Patriotism is the love of the country of the Christian's birth. The Christian birth is the new birth. It is the being born again, born from above. Where then is the Christian's country? Heaven is the Christian's country. This book establishes our biblical foundations for our citizenship in Heaven.
Christians and the Law-Courts is excerpted from the book What I Believe. When What I Believe was released in 1884, an attempt was made in Russia to suppress this book, but it circulated clandestinely in large numbers, in hectographed copies and also in volumes printed abroad and smuggled into the country.
No adequate reply to Tolstoy's terrific onslaughts upon Church and State was produced, and within a single generation, in Russia, the institutions he attacked had crumbled to dust.
This booklet is excerpted from What I Believe, by Leo Tolstoy. In his book, Tolstoy concludes that it is absurd to believe we are masters of our lives. When we live only for our own joy, we feel unhappy, just as laborers do when they do not fulfill their Master's orders.
And when we live only for our own enjoyment, death ruins all we work for. To live rationally, we must live so that death cannot destroy life. To participate in the true life, we must forgo our own will and do the will of the Father of life. For life to be a blessing, says Tolstoy, we must identify ourselves with the Son of Man in the task of establishing the kingdom of God on earth - here and now.
Children do not need hours and hours of book learning every day. The purpose of a Godly education is not to fill up a child's brain with facts and figures from a book.
Intellectual knowledge is only a small part of education. A more important aspect of learning is gaining practical wisdom and understanding of God's world. As we seek to raise our children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, we need them with us.
As life unfolds, we seize daily decisions as opportunities to instruct and set an example for our children.
The red and blue lights are flashing. The siren is squealing. A police officer just pulled you over. No matter what you say, no matter what you do, this time you are going to jail!
Once in jail what will you do about fingerprinting? Medical Questionnaires? Wearing Jail Clothes? Fasting? Overcoming Bullies? Bailing Out? The book, Going to Jail, is a guided tour of jail. Learn what to expect. Learn your options. Take some of the fear out of GOING TO JAIL!
Kingdom of Heaven Unlocked provides scriptural support that the Kingdom of Heaven is God's Government on earth. Jesus succeeded in establishing a rival Government to the world and seeded it with His own life.
The focus is around the constitutional convention which was held by our Founding Fathers during the "Last Supper." Evidence is provided which shows that we are citizens in His Government which frees us from the world.
This is about the reading of the Last Will and Testament of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Last Will and Testament? What is this all about? You mean Jesus has left us something - He left an inheritance? Yes, an inheritance! How could that possibly be?
Jesus has something to give all of us, something that never perishes, never wears out - THE KINGDOM
"Grownups have been tricked into obeying the laws of humbugs, rather than the laws of God. When Americans stopped believing that God rules them and the world, Americans stopped being free. That means they are slaves to the humbugs and ruled by wizards."
The year is 1525. Michael and Margaretha Sattler join a group called the Anabaptists and together challenge the 1000 year control of the Church by the State. They call for baptism to once again become, not a mark of State citizenship, but an adult and voluntary decision to follow Christ. As their movement grows, so does the determination of their enemies to stop them...by any means necessary. 100 minutes - Color.
