Who Will Stand?

All who labor for Corporation United Body receive security from the corporation for a job well done. From the top administrator to the least laborer, they are rewarded for their deeds. 

 Mr Imuphere is an administrator of the corporation. He is deemed, by himself and some society, as superior to those lower in the hierarchy  of the corporation. He is corrupt. He is devious. He is evil. He is a sycophant, this is how he has reached this position of power .  

Mr. Imuphere has a servile group of minions, they too are sycophants, but only to him. They are his puppets. They will do his bidding. He has manipulated them into believing his lying and manipulating and immoral actions are true and good. This was an easy task for Mr. I, the minions being sycophants too, They reap from the benefits of his unjust rewards. 

In production, which Mr. Imuphere rules, the corporation has managers. These managers have integrity and are of good character, upright and moral.Those that they guide, train and direct , who  are least in the hierarchy and labor for the corporation.

The minions have tried to influence the managers to become as debased as they are. To exalt and obey Mr. Imuphere and turn away from the Cooperation UB principles.  First the managers explained the wrong and dangers in these practices.  The managers stand on truth and honor and will not compromise their belief, nor the security of those working in the lower ranks, nor the integrity of the corporation. The evil superiors began to harass the managers, in the attempt to frighten them into silence or to cause them to quit the corporation.  They began spreading lies and defaming the managers. 

 The managers for the sake of the Corporation UB are disclosed to  the corporation authorities of the corruption that was occurring . The minions accused the managers of defying authority and threatened to destroy them. Also they devised malicious lies to defame the managers trying to shift the blame, . The managers continued perform their duties for the corporation, with integrity,and never neglected their responsibility, thus proving their innocence.  The managers have hopes that not only the corporation be protected from the evil, but also the minions and Mr. Imuphere, realize their wrongs and are remorseful and turn from their evil ways.

 The truth is finally being revealed, the corruption is being realized, the managers are being heard and commended  for their integrity and standing firm in the face of adversity, for  truth. The minions corruption has been revealed and they have been removed from the security of Corporation UB, some realizing their mistakes and some are blind to their wrongs. It has not been confirmed that Mr. Imuphere has any part in this deception, he has been reprimanded for not monitoring his staff. He has convinced many, through his sycophant manipulations, he was completely ignorant of his minions diabolical plan. 

The managers acted responsibly when they reported the corruption. They saved the corporation and their fellow co workers a great deal of loss. The Managers did what they were obligated to do. They put aside their fears and risked their jobs and did the right thing.

Lets change the environment up a bit:

  • Mr. Imuphere is the President of the United States.
  • The managers are the congress and senate others who have ‘jobs’ in the government..
  •  The workers, who receive security are -We the People.  (which also includes the managers)
  • Minions: the party of the president , the media, anyone paid off.

Is the congress and senate right to oppose the President when he is committing crimes? Going against our Constitution (creed)What about Ed Snowden?

What if the President of the US said we must accept something that directly disobeys or disagrees with our Creator, God’s Word, doctrine/creed/? Such as, making a law that says two men living together and have sex with each other are ‘married’ . Or that annihilating a person with a beating heart is not murder, as long as that person resides in another body.

If a government leader decides to  demand  payment, infringes on our source of income, removes our personal choice of home, protection, food and education, medical care. Would you oppose, would your rebel? Would it be ‘right’ ? In the eyes of God?

Lets change it up some more.

  • Mr. Imuphere is an elder, or pastor, or bishop of the church.
  •  His minions are other elders, or men of power and prestige in the church.
  • The managers are deacons, teachers, leaders of the congregation,
  • The congregation is the people, the people who are vested in the church.

The elders/pastor offense is apostasy.  They have turned away from the true Gospel and are teaching heresy. They are false teachers.  Some may be benefitting a bit too much from the giving.

The Managers,those that have not strayed and fallen prey to the false teaching,  are confronting the elders on their sin. The elders  and minions  (false teachers) are accusing those not in agreement with them ,of being unloving and stirring dimension and going against God’s word by not submitting to authority.

Is it right to confront those in authority in our government? In our churches?

I have heard too many say believers  MUST submit to all those in authoritative positions Because all those in ruling positions are appointed by God.Usually,  this argument for the subjects to submit, is dictated by those in supremacy. They seem to have these scriptures etched in their brains:

Romans 13 Let every soul be asubject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists bthe authority resists the ordinance of God,

 1 PeterpTherefore submit yourselves to every 3ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake, whether to the king as supreme, 14 or to governors, as to those who are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and for the praise of those who do good.

I agree I should submit to the position of authority. I am subject to those positions that rank higher than mine. God is a God of order. He did establish a hierarchy for us to function with. We do have laws and ordinance’s that protect. Speed limits, health codes, death penalty.  I disagree to  submitting to a lie, a false teaching an evil power, man made law. if my submission causes me to compromise the truth and character God expects me or all people to have. If it goes against God, I am free to rebel against authority.

Matt 23:1-5 “Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to His disciples, saying: “The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, and do not do. For they bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. But all their works they do to be seen by men.”

If I  compromise, so I can convince those who would label me  disobedient and unloving to man that I am loving and obedient, by their standards.  I am blind to what God has told ME to do. I become blind being led by a blind leader. Matt 15:14   Not to mention I would not be a servant of Christ . Gal 1:10 

Jesus opposed leadership through His whole ministry. He was sent to oppose them, because He loved them.  The Pharisees, Sadducees and High priest were all Rulers of the Jewish society. They made the rules ,they enforced the rules ,they threw people in jail and crucified them for breaking law. They demanded respect and honor.  Jesus called them names of dishonor, Whitewashed tombs, brood of vipers, foolish, hypocrites. Jesus contradicted authority, when He pointed out their ignorance of God’s Word over and over again. Jesus exposed their prejudice and elitist attitude towards the people. Jesus defied their power by  resisting arrest on a couple of occasions.

Some may say we can’t compare ourselves to Jesus, cause Jesus is allowed to oppose authority because technically He IS the guy who made all  the rules.. So lets talk about some regular folk;  Daniel and his three fire walking compadre’s. They would not eat the food sat before them by the king, a huge disobedience.  Shad Me and Abe refused to worship the idol as commanded. Daniels prayed to God, with his window open,  when a mandate went out to not pray to God. They had ‘man consequence’ but God saved them from it all.  Then there are the midwives that had orders from the Pharaoh  to kill baby boys as they were born. The midwives  did not obey AND lied to the Pharaoh about it. God rewarded them. Rahab hid the Hebrew ‘scouts’ from the king of Jericho and lied about it. She is rewarded as righteous, AND is a great great great .. of Jesus.

This new movement of love love love, don’t oppose the rulers, the government, be accepting of all people, love them as you would love yourself , turn the  other cheek, again, and again, give hand outs, conform to the world, lets just all get along because God tells you to, because that is how Jesus is, God is love and loves all man, and no one is going to Hell, except you because you oppose authority,  is a lie. Those of the world,(which belongs to Satan)  live in lies and are trying to get the righteous to join them.  Not everyone is acceptable to God

Revelation 21:8 But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

2 Peter 2:1 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction

It is up to We who will not compromise the truth to Ephesians 6:11 Put on the whole armor of God, that we may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil  and 2 Timothy 2:15Do our best to present ourselves to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. For 1 John 2:6 Whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.

So lets walk like Jesus. With our head up, our shoulders back, with the authority WE have in Him.

Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
