The Government of God
The Solution to Mankind's Problems
Sermonette; #FT04-06s; 19 minutes
Mike Ford, reflecting on the myriad failed forms of governmental systems on the face of the earth (including 26 defunct world empires), focuses upon Israel's unfortunate and flawed choice of a monarchy in I Samuel 8, burdening the people with confiscatory taxes, conscription, and servitude. One form of government, originally described by Josephus as a theocracy, has not yet been tried (at least not in its pure form), but will be the Kingdom of God — a hereditary monarchy in which all those called by God, those who have overcome their carnal human natures and have become composed of God's character- with God's laws written permanently on their hearts. At this time, church and state will be one.
