While modern leftist academics routinely mock the Judeo-Christian apocalypse prophesied in both the Old and New Testaments (Joel 2; Isaiah 24; Matthew 24-25; 2 Thessalonians 1-2; Revelation 6-19) as something only a deranged literalist could entertain in his own fundamentalist mindset, they remain completely unaware that their most important leftist forefather, Karl Marx, was a false prophet of secular fundamentalism and profane eschatology. Many secular scholars presume taking the Old and New Testaments at face value leads to a dangerous, irrational and fundamentalist worldview. Even too many Christians seemingly chime in with leftist academics by eschewing the idea of a literal fulfillment of such apocalyptic predictions, especially when it comes to great events like the Rapture of the Church (1 Cor. 15:51-52; 1 Thess. 4:13-18), the Great Tribulation (Jer 30:1-7; Rev 6-19), and the glorious Millennial Messianic Kingdom after the Second Coming of Christ (Zechariah 14; Matt 24:30-31; Rev 19:11-20:10). Many other Christians also ignore Old Testament Covenants (Abrahamic – Gen 12:1-4;, Palestinian – Deut 30:1-10; Davidic – Psalm 89; New – Jer 31:31-34) which promise to bless the entire world beyond human imagination (Isa 2:1-4; Mic 4:1-4; Rev 20:1-6) before the Eternal State (Isa 66:22; Rev 21-22). While many Christian scholars are embarrassed by such Scriptures, they fail to understand that modernity itself would not even exist without such a Judeo-Christian apocalyptic worldview. “We of today, concerned with the unity of universal history and with its progress toward an ultimate goal or at least toward a better world, are still in the line of prophetic and messianic monotheism – however little we may think of ourselves in those terms. ...

The War on Terror began for the United States on September 11, 2001, with coordinated suicide attacks using hijacked domestic airplanes by 19 members of a sophisticated international terrorist network known as al-Qa’eda. The simultaneous attacks occurred in New York, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania, incinerating 3,000 people and destroying billions of dollars in property. Prior to this attack, America responded to al-Qa’eda and al-Qa’eda-styled terrorism with traditional domestic criminal law tools rooted in the American Constitution. After 9/11 America determined that it would have to resort to the tools associated with the regulation of international armed conflict or law of war. ...

At the time of this writing, a high school principal and athletic director have been exonerated from criminal contempt charges for offering a public prayer over a meal at an athletic banquet. Yet, how could such a seemingly harmless activity ever rise to the level of a potential crime in the United States of America? The answer: a distorted reading of the Constitution that supposedly erects a high and impregnable wall between church and state. It is because of this lie, which was first introduced into the fabric of our culture through errant Supreme Court decisions of the early 1960s, that city councils are sued for placing manger scenes on the steps of city hall, public schools are prohibited from teaching scientific creationism alongside evolution, copies of the Ten Commandments are stricken from government walls, teacher-led prayer and Bible reading is prohibited in public schools, and Christianity has generally been purged from public life.

During this present time of cultural and political division, many, including Christians, wonder if this once great nation can survive. Because most are willfully ignorant of this nation’s historical roots, the bulk of such discussions lack the historical perspective necessary for cogent debate. Regrettably, the greatest knowledge deficit relates to God’s Word, the very area of expertise of our Founding Fathers, who grounded this Republic in the teaching of God’s Word as accurately expounded from many Colonial pulpits. We owe our nation’s very existence to these pastors of different denominational affiliations along the Atlantic coast and the frontier wilderness of the Colonies, men who understood their role in human government and were unafraid to serve publicly as God’s servants and bold communicators of His Truth. Why did these men, in face of great personal danger, choose to teach the biblical principles of governance and civil disobedience and stand firm in those Truths? An understanding of history, human government, and the purpose of God’s gifting to pastors is key to understanding the cause of the original greatness of our country and to regaining the spiritual stability and confidence that sustained our courageous forefathers in their battle for liberty and justice for all. ...

The idea of treason appears several times in the Bible, denoting an attempt to overthrow the ruling authority to whom one owes allegiance.

1. In 1 Samuel 24:11, David assures King Saul that he has not plotted “treason” against the king.

2. In 2 Kings 11:14 (|| 2 Ch. 23:13) Queen Athaliah cries out “Treason! Treason!” when she discovers that the priests had crowned a new king, her grandson, Joash.

3. In Ezekiel 17:20, God warns the Israelites that He will severely punish them for “treason … committed against [Him].” ...
