THE DIVINE & NATIONAL MOVEMENT

The Divine:  

Isaiah 33:22 

22: For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king; he will save us.

The National:

This is the reason why we have an executive, legislative and judicial branch of government.

The Divine:

Ezra 7:26

26: Whoever will not observe the law of your God and the law of the king, let judgment be executed upon him strictly, whether for death or for banishment or for confiscation of goods or for imprisonment.”

The National:

This is why we have a Divine and National Movement.  You must obey the laws of God and you must obey the laws of the State. (When the Bible speaks of the King, it's referring to the "State")

The Divine:

Ezra 7:25

25: “You, Ezra, according to the wisdom of your God which is in your hand, appoint magistrates and judges that they may judge all the people who are in the province beyond the River, even all those who know the laws of your God; and you may teach anyone who is ignorant of them.

The National:

This is why we have judges and magistrates in our society today.  

 

The Divine:  

Exodus 18:17-21

Jethro Counsels Moses

17: Moses’ father-in-law said to him, “The thing that you are doing is not good." 

18: "You will surely wear out, both yourself and these people who are with you, for the task is too heavy for you; you cannot do it alone."

19: "Now listen to me: I will give you counsel, and God be with you. You be the people’s representative before God, and you bring the disputes to God, 

20: then teach them the statutes and the laws, and make known to them the way in which they are to walk and the work they are to do." 

21: "Furthermore, you shall select out of all the people able men who fear God, men of truth, those who hate dishonest gain; and you shall place these over them as leaders of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties and of ten."

The National:

This is where we get our federal, state, county and city governments from.
