The Establishment of Government for the Well-being of Mankind    

When Noah and his family emerged from the ark, they reentered a world very different from the one they’d left. There was no longer a protective layer of water above the earth’s atmosphere. Due to
this loss, man’s life expectancy was greatly reduced. It was at this time that God introduced the
new institution of social rule we now call government. In the previous dispensation, anarchy had become a way of life. This new system of authority would help preserve peace and dispense
justice on the earth.

God told Noah:

“For your lifeblood I will surely demand an accounting…from each man,
too, I will demand an accounting for the life of his fellow man. Whoever
sheds the blood of man by man shall his blood be shed.” Genesis 9:5, 6

God gave the government the authority to take a man’s life for the crime of murder. He also gave governing men permission to prosecute lesser crimes deserving lesser punishment. Failure to
enforce laws and punish crimes would indicate rebellion toward God and injustice toward men.

Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth. Ham had a son named Cush who had a son
named Nimrod who became a powerful world leader in this new governmental system. The name “Nimrod” means “rebel” or “we will rebel.” Nimrod is described as being a “mighty hunter” (Genesis 10:9) and “a mighty warrior” (I Chronicles 1:10). Just because someone is a good warrior, however, doesn’t make him a great leader, a just king, or a shepherd to his people. Government was
designed to provide peace for mankind, but Nimrod used it as a tool to oppress people,
promote himself, and lash out against God. Just three generations after the flood, the
system of world government fell into the hands of one evil man. . The government under Nimrod corrupted the entire earth…again.

  Christian Quote from Church History
"God has given us people
to love and things to use,
not people to use and
things to love."
Something to Ponder??
During the drought of the 1980's in Israel the water level in the Sea of Galilee dropped. The receded water revealed to two fisherman brothers,
Moshe and Yuval Lufan, an ancient Galilean boat buried
in the mud. The vessel was a complete first century boat from the days of Jesus, Peter and John. The boat was
30 feet long and 8 feet wide, and large enough to accommaodate 15 people.
The back of the boat was raised just like the one described in Mark 4:35-41 where Jesus would have fell asleep on a cushion
in the stern.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information


Martus (Gr) - Witness (Eng) - martus is a Greek word technical legal term that refers to a witness
in a legal court room who provides testimony and evidence to support his testimony. Martus is translated "witness" and because the "witnesses" of Jesus life, death and resurrection where so
often killed for refusing to alter their testimony the Greek word martus has been transliterated
into the English language as "martyr."

  The large stone that served as the upper balustrade, or the stone railing on the top of the temple mount, has been discovered. It was used as a guard rail above the south west corner, but also provided an indention for the priest to step close to the edge and sound their silver trumpet to announce the beginning of the Sabath or the ending of a feast, etc. The stone actually has a 2,000 year old Hebrew inscrition that says, "To the Trumpeting Place." This may be the place James, the brother of Jesus, was pushed to his death in 63 AD.

Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Do I consider the government an evil institution of men?
Do I think that the world would be better without government?
God established government so that the chaos of life before the Flood could be averted.
I will respect my local and federal government. I will recognize that governmental leaders
are in a position of leadership that God has established.
I will pray for them and help make their role effective in God's plan for the well-being of mankind.
  "The lips of an adulteress
drip honey,

    and her speech is
smoother than oil;
but in the end she is
bitter as gall,

    sharp as a double-edged sword."
- Proverbs 5:3-4
