Jurisdiction versus Tyranny

The word "jurisdiction" comes from two Latin words: "juris" meaning of right, of law and "diction" meaning to speak, to declare.  Thus, "jurisdiction" means the right to speak concerning certain things (or to certain areas of life).       

God is the Creator and Sovereign Lord of all His Creation.  After His Death, Burial and Resurrection, our Lord Jesus Christ said, "All power has been given unto to me in Heaven and on Earth"  (Matthew 28:18)   Christ has "jurisdiction" over all mankind.

All human authority comes from God, through His Son, Jesus Christ.  He is King of kings and Lord of lords.  All human authority is limited by what God declares in His written Law-Word, the Holy Bible.  No human authority is granted absolute power.

There are only three delegations of authority that men have an obligation to obey.  They are family government, church government and civil government.  Each is limited in authority and exclusive from one another.     

When one form of government exceeds the limits of authority placed on it by God, or interferes with the authority of another form of government, it is an act of tyranny.  It is man trying to play God.  Totalitarian dictatorships are a good example of this.

They dictate to the family and church what they may teach and do in the education and disciplining of their children and members.  They demand tithes in the form of income taxes and total sacrifice in the form of military draft or mandatory government service.

Totalitarian tyranny can be from a civil government, such as Nazi Germany under Hitler, Soviet Russia under Stalin, and Communist China under Mao.  Or it can be religious tyranny such as in Islamic Iran, and in the Medieval Papacy and Spanish Inquisition.

When a nation forgets God's Law, it can expect tyranny.  Such tyranny came to England, for example, under the totalitarian rule of William the Conqueror and the Norman Law that displaced the Anglo-Saxon common law of Alfred the Great.

In the English Civil War, Oliver Cromwell proposed to restore the rights of Englishmen, as to what those rights were before the Norman conquest of England.  But, after the death of Cromwell, the Stuart kings of England restored their own form of tyranny.

The Stuart line ended in the Glorious Revolution.  However, the Glorious Revolution reflected the writings of John Locke, which merely transferred power from the king to the people, as represented by Parliament. 

There were no check or balances placed on Parliament.  It could enact whatever laws it wished.  This eventually led to the American Revolution of 1776.  Had England really returned to proper jurisdiction of family, church and civil government, as Cromwell proposed, America might have still been British today.  And England would have probably enjoyed greater prosperity and freedom than any other nation on earth.

This would have been due to the blessing of God upon any nation that closely follows His Law-Word.  Had England honored God in restoring the proper jurisdiction to family, church and civil government, God would have honored England above all nations.

Which Bible can we trust? Which Bible is the most accurate? Why KJV only? Read our Which Bible series of articles for answers from both Scripture and history (including a Rebuttal of James White's book, The King James Only Controversy).

We also offer a well-documented Vietnam Veteran Story that illustrates the mercy of God.  The Vietnam Veteran Story, found on our Combat Vet page, comes from published accounts of Vietnam Veterans experiences, as well as this Vietnam Veterans experiences, told first hand.  

Concerned about inflation leading to hyperinflation? Some say buy silver and gold coins. Others say it is evil to own silver and gold coins. What does the Bible teach us? Tulip Gems offers an Hyperinflation Survival Guide which provides a Biblical basis for ownership of silver and gold coins as an hedge against the horrors of hyperinflation.  Links to online vendors are also provided. 

Will out of control government spending lead to hyperinflation, and possibly to a new world currency? Will a new world currency lead to the Mark of the Beast (666)? Will the Rapture occur before the Tribulation (Pre-Tribulational Rapture) or will the Rapture occur after the Tribulation (Post-Tribulational Rapture)? For Biblical answers, visit our
Mark of the Beast Explained page.

Will America come under nuclear attack? What does the Bible say? For reliable information on what to do in a nuclear attack, read our
Survive Nuclear Attack page. While many Calvinists shy away from Bible prophecy, we don't. For those who want Biblical guidance about the future, check out our Hyperinflation Survival Guide, Mark of the Beast Explained and Survive Nuclear Attack pages. Our Lord Jesus Christ spoke often about the events leading up to His Second Coming. Where our Good Shepherd leads, we may safely follow.

Who is Jesus Christ? Why KJV only? Why Home School your children? Jesus Christ is Lord and the KJV Bible is the Preserved Word of God in English.  Finally, Scripture gives us compelling reasons to Home School our children. One very important reason is to lead them to Our Passover Lamb. We recommend Christ-centered Home Schooling Curriculum.
