In England, every section of land (counties) had a ruler over them (e.g. duke, earl, etc.), while the country of England had a king ruling it. This is like the United States of America: we have Mayors over cities, a Board of Governors (councilmen) over counties, Governors over states, and a President of the nation, with their local city police, county sheriffs, and federal agents protecting them from the people, while they act like they are there to protect the people.
While these police agencies have a two-fold mandate from the rulers, their first allegiance is to the rulers, and not the people. This is the essence of a police state that deceives the people and rules the people by force. It is not the essence of freedom.
Early Americans established their freedom from the State (the nation or country) by establishing the Minutemen. Individual States set-up these armies to repel government forces from invading their individual States. These Minutemen eventually became known as the National Guard.
After World War II, all the Governors ruling all the states in America signed over their personal control and power of the National Guard units to the President of the United States. Now these individual State armies, which were once independent of the National Army, are treated like reserve units of the National Army of the United States. Thus rendering the original intention of the Minutemen obsolete and useless to protect the citizens of a State.
If the National Guard had an independent mandate from the Governor of a State, the Federal Government could have never touched the people killed by the government using national police (ATF) at Waco, Texas. The event at Waco opposed the constitution of the United States, which prohibits the use of federal military being used inside the borders of America. The event at Waco should have proven to all Americans that they are not a free people, but a people living in a police state, just like in the days of Nimrod who was judged by God and destroyed for sinning against God.
Emperor = a king of kings (like Jesus)
King David fights against Goliath, who is three feet taller than David. He has a spear like a “weaver’s beam” (which is about six to seven feet long with a horizontal bar that has threads woven together, making it very, very strong). David’s weapon was a sling. He killed ferocious animals to protect his sheep, like bears and lions. Therefore, he wasn’t afraid of Goliath because he had training killing animals that are much more dangerous than human beings.
Big animals and big people are usually clumsy.
A lion eats about 70-100 pounds of flesh a day, weighs about 600-700 pounds, and runs about 45 miles per hour. A human eats about one pound a day and weighs 125+ pounds.
Then he shall turn his face toward the fort of his own land: but he shall stumble and fall, and not be found. Then shall stand up in his estate a raiser of taxes in the glory of the kingdom: but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle. And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries. And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant.
And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people. He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers’ fathers; he shall scatter among them the prey, and spoil, and riches : yea, and he shall forecast his devices against the strong holds, even for a time. And he shall stir up his power and his courage against the king of the south with a great army; and the king of the south shall be stirred up to battle with a very great and mighty army; but he shall not stand: for they shall forecast devices against him. Yea, they that feed of the portion of his meat shall destroy him, and his army shall overflow: and many shall fall down slain. And both these kings’ hearts shall be to do mischief, and they shall speak lies at one table; but it shall not prosper: for yet the end shall be at the time appointed.
