I'd like to know exactly what you mean by "start a nation." In my opinion, we should make the East and West Coasts of the US secede and start a new nation in the middle Very Happy . But I doubt that that is what you're talking about!

Greetings,

*Stepping out in faith* I pray that what I say here will not only be my own purpose, but God's purpose and the purpose of everyone here. I have seen a lot of good thoughts and great passions among you all, and for that I am encouraged and grateful. I believe that we are all fundamentally in agreement.

And now, as the founder of this forum, I want to express my purpose in detail. This seems advisable since I have received many queries about what I really mean by starting a nation.

What is important about a biblical nation?

When David saw the blasphemies of Goliath and announced his intention to fight him, he was confronted with incredulity and assertions that it was impossible. His response echoes through time. Instead of defending the “possibility” of his intention, for he knew that it was impossible, he cried out “Is there not a cause?” That was what his focus was on, for he knew that if there was a cause, there was a way in the Lord of Hosts. And now, looking at the state of the world today, I say, “Is there not a cause?” And there is a cause. When the light of liberty is dying, and those who profess to be of the bride of Christ are aiding and abetting its death by its silence, I say there is a cause. When the lies that say that the Word of God is unable to touch the very institutions that God founded, church, family, and government holds the main sway of influence in the world, I say there is a cause. When those who profess to be God's children refuse to obey the clear commands of Scripture and stand on the inerrant nature and trustworthiness of the Word of God from its very first verse to its last in every area of life, including government, and thereby blaspheme the name of God, I say that there is a cause for us to rise up and give glory to God again. If we strive to make it known that God did institute government, and that He does have a plan for how it ought to work: that nations ought to be based utterly on the fact that government is an institution of God and not of men; that they must be free of modern sophistry and devilish philosophies; that they must do exactly what God made it to do and nothing else, then the glory of God will shine around the world and into the marches of unborn generations. Is it anything less than our duty to stand for the preservation and protection of the liberty that God loves and died for? The light of liberty must shine again!

What fundamental purpose do you have in relation to discussing a biblical nation?

For the last couple of years I have been struggling for freedom from a bondage to lust. I am now walking in victory by the grace of Christ, but it was not always that way. Up until my seventeenth birthday or thereabouts, I was a slave to rebellious pride. It took a mighty humbling by God for me to listen to the truths of Scripture and apply their life-giving principles to my life. In the process I dedicated my life to the helping of other young men to find liberty from lust, as well as other things. I discovered that political liberty is the same as righteous liberty, and I realized that my lifelong dream of starting a nation was actually included within the promise that I had made to God: and it was no idle promise. God has commanded us to be righteous, and I see no nation in this world that does not greatly choke out the liberty of God's servants to do so. America used to be a nation that defended God's liberty with blood and toil on its own and other nation's soils, but it is no longer, and comfort and apathy have killed the well of its own liberty. Modern governments are a mockery of what God intended them to be, and I believe that it is the time to try changing that, or die trying (seriously: Christ Himself died to bring us liberty, how can we say that it is not a worthy cause to die for?). Even if I and the people who will help me don't succeed, the effort, if it is a valiant one, will echo through the future and around the world to the glory of God. No matter what progress we make, if we stay on target, the world will be changed for the better. If every generation had fought for the cause of liberty as if they were starting a nation strictly based off of biblical principles, America would not be in the mess it is today. But the battle is the Lord's, not ours, and so we can work knowing that He is on our side.

What methods do you consider important to implement for the furthering of that purpose?

A righteous banding together of believers of one mind who truly desire the furtherance of liberty, and thereby the gospel. The only way that any form of government can function efficiently is for the populace to be righteous. And so collaboration and banding together of biblically minded men and women of God is the most crucial aspect of any effort to defend liberty. Hence this forum: a very small, weak thing, but one which I hope will spark greater things.

What exact results do you look to see that will fulfill your purpose?

One thing that I realized is that the culture, economy, and society of a nation is entirely determined by the religion of the populace, the form of government, and any factors that affect the things that they need to do to survive. Such as, if there is no arable land, and there is plenty of fish, the government does not have to legislate that everybody fishes: the people will do it automatically. If it is cold, they will wear clothing that will reflect that (unless the government is extremely oppressive and they cannot afford it, in which case that would reflect the form of government). If the government does the grants and welfare, nobody else will be able to compete with it because the government is force. If the government does all the utilities, no one else will be able to, and if the government does not, a private organization must, even without being told to by the government: there is no other option. The point is that people are used to seeing governments doing certain things, and they don't realize that the reason why private organizations are not able to do them right now is because the government is stopping them by doing them itself. So I envisage a government in which nothing is done by it except for what the Lord instituted it to do, totally relying on His wisdom, and not man's.

Do we have the faith to stand against the world's expectations? What are your thoughts?

With joy and peace in Christ,
Jay Lauser

Thank you Jay,
That was a great post. That helped me to understand your purposes here. I have not been good at thinking about things in the way you mentioned. I find it much easier to just say, "Yeah, there's a cause, but everyone is against us." I forget that "If God is for us, who can be against us," and "The battle is the Lord's." God filled His Word with promises to do the impossible. I just read in 2 Kings 7 when God made the entire Syrian army flee. It is so easy to forget His power and willingness to help.
So anyway, thank you for the encouragement, and for the explanation. I definitely feel called in the same direction as you, although I had never thought of it as starting a nation. I want to do whatever God enables me to to change our own nation. It might end up being the same thing in the end.

Here's to the day when we all get to start a new nation under God, on a new earth!

In Christ,

Jonathan,

Thank you so much for your encouragement! You don't know how much it helps me keep on going when I have your guys' support. I have a tremendous support group in my loving family, for which I am extremely grateful, but your uplifting words speak volumes. God truly is on our side as we Align ourselves to His Purpose and Will for our ways, and I firmly believe that any hardship that we meet will only serve to strengthen and purify us if we keep with that.

With joy and peace in Christ,
Jay Lauser

First off, Jay, your post was beautiful! It’s wonderful to know that there are people out there who are willing to fight, willing to become instruments for God, and willing to step way beyond what is expected. Thank you for the wisdom, hope, and encouragement you have displayed. It reminds us all of the purpose and truth that will always be in this world because of His great love and grace.

What is important about a biblical nation?

Mary was probably frightened, worried, and amazed when the angel appeared with the message that she would bring the Savior of the people into the world. Yet, she didn’t let these thoughts consume her, she didn’t focus on what this job would entail. She looked at the angel and said the simplest phrase possible when presented with such a large task, “May it be done to me as you have said”. Mary didn’t place her trust in what she thought could happen, but rather, she realized that there was a much bigger purpose for the world than what she had envisioned. She let God use her as a tool to help bring about that purpose. I see a dream, a purpose bigger than what we have imagined in a biblical nation. I see an opportunity to ignite the world, to bring forth the glory of Christ. When people are called to a path or a idea that seems impossible, that seems hopeless, that seems beyond our strength, that is when we know God has taken over. That is when we hold on to the promises that God will be make our weaknesses into strengths, our doubts into courage, our hate into love, and our life into His Will. Starting a Biblical Nation will bring hope to the people, will bring forth God’s Truth for all to see, and will inspire others to be willing to let God take them wherever He wants. The only thing that we have to be willing to do is to say that simple yes. To let God be in control of our vision and to have a great faith in Him and His purposes. We need to left God shine through this goal and this cause of starting a Biblical Nation.

What fundamental purpose do you have in relation to discussing a biblical nation?

I became a believer to Christ two years ago. Before then, I loved the world, I loved its values, and I was letting the world define who I was as a person. In search of answers to the questions the plagued me, I researched religion. The only religion I thought sounded logical was the atheist point of view at the time. However, I started to read the Bible and found answers to every one of my questions, hope that I never had, and love that I failed to experience in this world. When I gave my life to Him, my eyes were opened and I was amazed at what I now saw. I saw what the world really was, a place that ignored the truth and a place that ignored His love. I was deeply saddened by the reality that many people would never experience the joy and love that I had found. I also noticed that governments and leaders were the ones everyone looked to for answers, for solutions. Yet none of these governments and leaders promoted or exhibited the ideas that I found in the Bible. How were people supposed to follow God and His plan if there were no countries that lived by these principles? I see purpose in letting God use us to lead His children to Him again. To let Christ’s sacrifice really mean something, to let His love really mean something, and to let His will really shine in this world. And finally, to make His presence know to the world for ever and to let our efforts make a mark in history.

What methods do you consider important to implement for the furthering of that purpose?

I see faith and fellowship as the main tools that will be needed. If we don’t have faith in Him and in His glory then we will not move anywhere. If we don’t have fellowship then will not have the strength and courage that will come from others. This is why the church is so important because it is the body of Christ, made and operating by faith and fellowship among His children. And that is what we will need, a team of ignited believer’s who want and will follow His plans with all their hearts.

What exact results do you look to see that will fulfill your purpose?

I see the world becoming a better place. The people seeing a life beyond this earth. A hope that will never be extinguished because God will keep it alive. A chance for a government to lead the people to the one thing that can bring true prosperity and joy to the people, Jesus Christ. I see a government that will let the church and the body of Christ be the center of its policies and the leader to the people of the world. In the end, all these things will affect the world view, economy, attitude, leadership, wars, and ideas, changing them for the better and for all these items to be a witness to His glory.


All in all, I feel called to join this cause, to be a part of some that is bigger and better than myself and the world. An opportunity to let God lead my heart in the ways of His will. I pray that His purposes for this forum and the people on it will shine forth, that the people will have the courage to follow Him wherever He leads them. Let us all have the faith to be like Mary and say “Yes!”

With love in Christ,
Hannah

What is important about a biblical nation??

Without biblical principles nations flourish, but ultimately fail. With them however, they will continue to flourish.

What fundamental purpose do you have in relation to discussing a biblical nation??

I enjoy and understand politics, so my expertise should be helpful to anything that gets started by this endevour.

What methods do you consider important to implement for the furthering of that purpose?

I really don't know. It's really something I haven't put much thought into.

What exact results do you look to see that will fulfill your purpose??

Eventually a nation based on the biblical principles I talked about before.

What is important about a biblical nation?

Psalms 9:17- "The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God."

Psalms 33:12- "Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance."

Proverbs 14:34- "Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people."

Zechariah 12:9- "And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem."

Acts 10:35- "But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him."

We see a stern warning given to nations that forget God or that seek to destroy Israel. Contrasted to that, are promises of blessing to nations that fear that LORD and live in righteousness. Thus, it is obviously in the best interest of a nation to be run on biblical principles. However, it is not just the government leaders that must walk in obedience to God's Word. The whole nation must live in fear and obedience to God. This makes evangelism even more important. Biblical government is important because it obeys God's commandments and laws laid out in the Bible and truly fulfills the role of government better than any other government system.

What fundamental purpose do you have in relation to discussing a biblical nation?

2 Timothy 2:15-16- "tudy to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness."

2 Timothy 3:16-17- "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."

I want to be able to correctly interpret Scriptures teaching on Government and Economics knowing that the Bible is sufficient for the formation and running of government. I believe that a biblical nation is possible to achieve, but only through God's sovereignty, salvation of the people, correct application of the Bible, humility, blood, sweat, and tears. I believe that a Christian who walks in obedience to God's Word and grows in his/her relationship with God will enjoy a blessed life and be a better citizen or governing official. (By "enjoy a blessed life," I am not supporting the prosperity gospel. I believe that a Christian who rightly understands his/her relationship with God and enjoys fellowship with Him will consider his/her life blessed even in persecution, hardship, and pain.)

What methods do you consider important to implement for the furthering of that purpose?

Mark 13:10- "And the gospel must first be preached to all nations."

I believe that first and foremost, I personally must read, understand, study, memorize, and apply the Bible. My relationship with Jesus is most important. But, I cannot stop there. I must evangelize to the lost, fellowship and study the Bible with other Christians, and apply Scripture in all areas of my life including government. God is sovereign, and He alone knows the future. Salvation of the lost and the raising up of biblical nations are in His control. But, I must be a wise steward of the time, gifts, and responsibilities that He has entrusted me with.

What exact results do you look to see that will fulfill your purpose?

1 Peter 2:9- "But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light."

Psalm 117:1- "Praise the LORD, all you nations; extol him, all you peoples."

The results of people being saved and nations turning to God and governing according to Scripture will be evident and astounding. The nations will praise the Lord for His sovereign work of delivering them out of spiritual darkness into His glorious light. Christians would demonstrate the fruit of the Spirit and the signs of a true Christian laid out in 1 John. The world would indeed be a better place.

Psalms 90:20- "Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah."

With all this being said about the world being better, we must keep in mind that all men are flawed and sinful creatures. Even Christians who have been freed from the power and practice of sin, are not yet freed from the presence of sin. Thus, no nation or society will ever be perfect until God destroys this Earth and creates a new Heaven and new Earth. [2 Peter 3:13, Revelation 21:1] But we should still strive for the best and most biblical government we can; even if everyone else opposes or persecutes us as a result. The world is getting darker and more evil, especially in government. The one-world government agenda is growing at an overwhelming pace and has already progressed farther than most people know. This will make it harder for a biblical nation to arise. However, we are citizens of Heaven [Philippians 3:20] and are the children of an All-powerful God. [Galatians 3:26, 4:6, Genesis 17:1] He is always with us and will never leave or forsake us. [Deuteronomy 31:6]

I hope this all makes sense. Again, I know very little about government, economics, and even biblical government. I hope to learn much more about these subjects throughout the coming years. I want to learn about it because I understand that it is vitally important for me to do so. I want to be a godly and responsible citizen and be ready fill a political office if need be. I believe that a correct understanding of biblical government will help me in my voting or support of candidates or laws.

Caleb,

I heartily applaud your post. You clearly and scripturally made your case. Thank you for your contribution. I would suggest to you to adapt your above post and put it into an article format and post it as a new thread in the Act room. We will then help you edit it and prepare it for posting on the blog. That is just the kind of posts we want on there!

With joy and peace in Christ,
Jay Lauser

What is important about a biblical nation?
God's kingdom is not of this world, so starting a Biblical government is not the main goal of Christians, but we should still be involved in government because the freedom to worship God is important. I believe God will bless a nation that tries to base its laws on Biblical principles and commands. I also believe that God has a reason for every rule He sets in place, and following those rules is to our benefit. God knows exactly what a nation ought to be like, and a nation that follows His guidlines will reap the benefits.

What fundamental purpose do you have in relation to discussing a biblical nation?
I think it is important to look in the Bible to see what God's purposes for government are. I want to better understand how Biblical principles can be applied to an A.D. government. I would like to improve the United States government and start a new nation if it is necessary.

What methods do you consider important to implement for the furthering of that purpose?
It's important to study the Bible carefully to discern how we can best serve God and others through government. We also need to be careful not to attack others, especially other Christians who are also trying to follow the Bible. It is important that we work together.

What exact results do you look to see that will fulfill your purpose?
I would like to see a nation whose government does not usurp Biblical boundaries, but protects the freedom of its citizens and sees itself as a group of servant-leaders, not masters.

What is important about a biblical nation?

There are several great reasons why we should have a biblical nation. First is because the nation will be focused on God, and when the people of a nation are focused on God, that nation will be a force to be reckoned with, army, politically, and spiritually. Second, when God is at the center of a nation, He will bless this nation as long as we hold Him as the origin and the people fear Him and hold Him in a place of honor. Lastly, the laws should be in their most purist form when you only restrict what should be restricted, and let all else go. When we don't have all these dumb laws that really have no meaning other then people complaining about every little thing. The government that worships God, and makes laws according to His will, will be an uncorrupt government.

What fundamental purpose do you have in relation to discussing a biblical nation?

To start and see what a nation of biblical focus should be, so that I can start to focus my own energies toward what really matters in government. And not all of the side things that the government tries to throw out at the general public.

What methods do you consider important to implement for the furthering of that purpose?

Starting a forum, (like Jay did) getting the word out and getting others to join, start a Facebook group, ways of getting other brothers and sisters in Christ to band together and start making a difference. Alex and Brett Harris wrote a book called Do Hard Things; just by starting that book they now have thousands and tens of thousands of people now starting to do harder things. Why can't we?

What exact results do you look to see that will fulfill your purpose?

Once the government has changed, then the nation as a whole will start to change, for the better as long as the government is changed for the better. The government has over stepped its bounds, and it’s the generation-to-come's job to change this corrupt government for the better. And that is where we come in. The next generation to make a change for the better, make awareness, and start to fight back for the land that was lost from God. God can take it back with just the snapping of His fingers, however, that is not His way. His way is to use His children to get what was lost. It’s our job to fight for the LORD!

In Christ,
Peter G.

Peter,

I have definitely seen a change in your writing! That was very good! Your thoughts were an encouragement to me in many ways. Thank you for being on the team.

With joy and peace in Christ,
Jay Lauser

I am glad that God is teaching you to yield to Him in your writing. What I pray is that God will always write through me. Nothing I write is of any value: the only things that are worth anything is what has been guided and inspired by God's Spirit creating in me His desires.

When David saw the blasphemies of Goliath and announced his intention to fight him, he was confronted with incredulity and assertions that it was impossible. His response echoes through time. Instead of defending the “possibility” of his intention, for he knew that it was impossible, he cried out “Is there not a cause?” That was what his focus was on, for he knew that if there was a cause, there was a way in the Lord of Hosts. And now, looking at the state of the world today, I say, “Is there not a cause?” And there is a cause. When the light of liberty is dying, and those who profess to be of the bride of Christ are aiding and abetting its death by its silence, I say there is a cause. When the lies that say that the Word of God is unable to touch the very institutions that God founded, church, family, and government holds the main sway of influence in the world, I say there is a cause. When those who profess to be God's children refuse to obey the clear commands of Scripture and stand on the inerrant nature and trustworthiness of the Word of God from its very first verse to its last in every area of life, including government, and thereby blaspheme the name of God, I say that there is a cause for us to rise up and give glory to God again. If we strive to make it known that God did institute government, and that He does have a plan for how it ought to work: that nations ought to be based utterly on the fact that government is an institution of God and not of men; that they must be free of modern sophistry and devilish philosophies; that they must do exactly what God made it to do and nothing else, then the glory of God will shine around the world and into the marches of unborn generations. Is it anything less than our duty to stand for the preservation and protection of the liberty that God loves and died for? The light of liberty must shine again!

I feel I must echo the others-- what a passionate, stirring and inspiring speech! Great job!

Thank you Carissa. It is encouraging to hear that my little soap-box call there is still encouraging people. Maybe I should post it on my blog...
