This group of verses in Romans 13 has to be one of, if not, the biggest and most criminal contaminations in The Holy Scriptures, satanic no less, and I am referring to all seven verses when I say this. Let’s copy them here for our convenience:
Romans 13:1-7 (KJV) Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. 5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. 6 For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God’s ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. 7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour. (All italics emphasis mine)
How do I know it’s a contamination? Easy, because it is a complete contradiction of Ephesians 6:10-12:
Eph 6:10-12 (KJV) Finally, my brethren, be strong in The Lord, and in The Power of His Might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
We must always remember that there are no contradictions in The Holy Word of the Godhead. If there are two passages of Scripture that appear to contradict one another then it is usually one of the following four things that is the cause of it:
1. Our general poor understanding of God’s Holy Word and The True Gospel Message.
2. A translation error, whether accidental or intentional.
3. Our lack of understanding of the agenda(s) at work within the pages of The King James Bible – the agenda(s) of the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religious translators.
4. A blatant contamination and/or corruption, often by additions, by the second, third and fourth century founders of the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion otherwise known erroneously and blasphemously as the ‘Church Fathers’ who, in reality, were just Alexandrian philosophy students of the Judaising Canaanite Jew Philo.
As we can see, Romans 13:1-7 and Ephesians 6:10-12 seem to clash and contradict one another, but if one passage just happened to be a man made addition, i.e. a corrupt lying addition, what would happen to the supposed contradiction? It would vanish. However I can now hear you say: “Hey you can’t be removing seven verses of Scripture just to remove what you think is a contradiction!!”
Why not? I would counter, especially when I know for sure that there is a big question mark hanging over it, a question mark going all the way back to 140 AD no less. Now, I don’t know about you, but if someone from that time zone had a Greek MSS without these seven verses included I would immediately start to get suspicious. My suspicions, too, would not be based solely upon this man’s Greek MSS, so before I introduce him as a witness let’s look at some other evidence.
In Romans 12, Paul’s theme is very different from the first seven verses of Romans 13 and yet if we join the last verses of Romans 12 to verse 8 of Romans 13 the theme and context flows in a contextual continuum, without any subject change at all, and to prove it:
Romans 12:19-21 to Romans 13:8 (KJV) Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 13:8-9 (KJV) 8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled The Law. 9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Can you see how the natural flow of Paul’s letter has been interrupted with seven verses of what amounts to distractive gobbledegook about obedience to satanic worldly secular governance?
So let’s introduce our second century witness commonly known as Marcion who had a New Testament without the verses in question. He was criticised severely by the heretical dog and villain Tertullian as being a Gnostic. So here we have an incident of the pot calling the kettle black, so to speak, for both men were blaspheming corruptors of the Holy Word of God. To Marcion’s credit he did profess to be a seeker of The Truth, but unfortunately went astray by denying The Lord came in the flesh.
However, this, in this instance, is a side issue, for we are looking for proof that Romans 13:1-7 is a corrupt addition to Paul’s letter and Marcion is a catalyst in proving that very thing. Tertullian, as I said, was very critical of Marcion’s New Testament and quite detailed in that criticism. Interestingly Marcion’s New Testament did not include the verses in question, but Tertullian did not make an issue over that and he does not mention the omission of these verses at all. Why did he not pick up on that? Easy, because these verses were not in any Greek MSS in the possession of Tertullian and Marcion at that time, so they must have been added later. This means we can easily deduce that they are a later addition than 140 AD and therefore spurious.
So why were they added? Again, this is easy to answer, for we are dealing with Cain’s system and his descendants (The Tares) actively corrupting the Godhead’s Holy Word by making us think we are under the authority of human beings in civil authority when, as Born Again sons and daughters of God, we are under no man’s authority. Look, folks, if we are Born of God (Born Again), we are free and free indeed, just as Yashua Anointed tells us in John 8. If we are free how can we be under any man made authority? This, too, is how we know Romans 13:1-7 is a Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religious agenda based corruption of the Godhead’s Holy Word.
Notice how, in their arrogance, they give their game away with the opening words: “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers.” Really!!?? and is that so!!?? when in Ephesians, Paul tells us the exact opposite. Here he tells us we’re against those very same higher powers or spiritual evil and wickedness in high places. Are there now two sets of higher powers or higher places?
It then gets ‘better’ folks with this term: “the powers that be,” they boast. These are the very ‘powers’, that we, as Born of God (Born Again) believers, are up against. The people behind these powers are our sworn enemies. Look at the other lies written there in those verses: “For he is the minister of God to thee for good.” Wow, really!!?? How does that work then? Is all this goodness toward us displayed in their taxing us to financial destruction? Is all this goodness displayed in their stealing our income and property via usury and handing it directly to the fraudsters and criminals within the banking industry? Is all this goodness displayed in them embarking upon unlawful and illegal wars in foreign lands where they have no lawful right to be? Is murdering thousands of people, men, women and children, in our name, and maiming and slaughtering our own young soldiers in the process all for our good!!?? Whose power do these lying illegitimates possess, Yashua Anointed’s (The Lord’s) power or the Devil’s power? I will leave you all to answer these very pertinent questions for yourselves.
If we now look at Yashua Anointed’s view on this subject what do you think we will find? His blessing on it!!?? Let’s look now at this very well known Holy Scripture and a more misquoted and erroneously used verse of Holy Scripture you will be hard pressed to find:
Luke 20:23-25 (KJV) But he perceived their craftiness, and said unto them, Why tempt ye me? 24 Shew me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it? They answered and said, Caesar’s. 25 And He said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar’s, and unto God the things which be God’s.
What is Yashua Anointed (The Lord Jesus Christ) saying here? Is He saying: “Pay your taxes”? If you think He is then you are wrong, (just as I used to be) for He is saying no such thing. So what is He saying? He is saying render unto Caesar what is Caesars, and what is Caesar’s in this instance? Is it the metal value of the coin, the believed functional value of the coin within the Roman Empire or is it just Caesar’s image and superscription on the coin? Answer, it’s Caesar’s image and superscription on the coin and nothing else. In Truth the image and superscription is all that Caesar could lawfully lay claim to.
We need, too, to fully understand that the evil deceptive use of this verse has been misapplied in order to financially abuse believers and unbelievers alike via taxation and usury for centuries. We owe Caesar, and what Caesar represents in our modern world, absolutely nothing and you need to get this solid gold Truth through your heads as soon as possible and internalise it.
While we’re at it, here is another vile corruption:
Titus 3:1a (KJV) Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates….
Again, as I did with Romans 12 & 13 I will quote the preceding verses and show how this trick has been used a second time:
Titus 2:14-15 (KJV) Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. 15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee. Titus 3:1b-2 (KJV) To be ready to every good work, 2 To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.
As before, we can easily see the flow of the context continuum, but can you also see the inbuilt contradictory corruption? In one breath Paul is supposed to be exhorting us, and those present, to speak with authority and rebuke those who need rebuking and then in the next breath advising us to grovel, bow down and suck up to heathen secular magistrates who, if they were anything like the magistrates here in the UK today will be as corrupt and malfeasant as the day is long. (e.g. signing Court Order’s and Judgements at 10am in the morning for cases to be heard at 2pm later that same day). This, dear people, is what passes for justice in modern Britain today. The thing is, do you think the heathen magistrates of the barbaric Roman Empire of the first century would have been any better or different from our magistrates today? Again, I will leave you all to answer this very pertinent question for yourselves.
Here is another crucial point; did Yashua Anointed (The Lord Jesus Christ) win any favours with the ruling authorities by the things He said and/or did? What did he call those who were the “powers that be” of his day? Let me remind you, just in case your memory is letting you down: “Hypocrites!!”; “A generation (race) of Vipers!!”; “Whited Sepulchres!!”; “Throats like open graves!!”; “Sons of the Devil!!” Are these terms those of someone you would classify as being subservient and obedient to magistrates and do they fit in with what Paul is supposed to be saying?
If we now move on to 1 Peter 2:13-20 is this yet another corruption by addition? Let’s copy the first verses here and see:
1 Peter 2:13-15 (KJV) Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; 14 Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. 15 For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men.
Now here is another pertinent question or two: Are these people i.e. the king and his governors foolish men? Having elevated certain people to a position that we are supposed to be subservient to and to honour, is Peter in his next breath knocking them off their pedestals? Is he, in effect suggesting we submit ourselves to fools? Are fools capable of judging evildoers we could ask? OK, I think these questions solve the problem at hand, don’t you? If not then I will carry out the same exercise that I did before and join 1 Peter 2:11-12 to 1 Peter 2:21-22.
1 Peter 2:11-12 (KJV) Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; 12 Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation 1 Peter 2:21-22 (KJV) For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow His steps: 22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in His mouth.
Here once more we can see the continuum of the context rendering the idea of submission to secular government by True Believers a joke. Now from this you may be wondering if I am suggesting some kind of rebellion against secular government and you would be right, but it would be a peaceful rebellion via non-co-operation, not a troublesome rebel rousing rebellion. In fact, I would suggest that we should show respect at all times towards our fellows, especially those who think they are in authority, whoever they are, until of course, at such time that we discover they are behaving treacherously and/or criminally – which, in the case of our so called political leaders and judiciary happens to be most of the time.
With regard to religious leaders does the same rule of thumb apply I hear you say? Why of course and even more so because The Church needs no leaders at all. Leaders in churches are solely a man made idea – a religious pecking order idea, a system Yashua Anointed identified as the system of The Nicolaitanes. Nico = to rule; Laitanes = the laity – to rule the laity, a system Yashua Anointed hates and He says so twice in Revelation 2:6 and 2:15.
Right, that’s about it for this article, apart from a sum up and a recap over what I have said above. Look, folks, you need to remember who was ultimately behind the writing and translating of the King James Bible. Whose interests did it really serve, was it solely Yashua Anointed’s interests and His agenda with the lifting up of His Gospel Message of Grace, Faith and Salvation or was it a damage limitation exercise on the part of the men of the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion, which includes The Beast Power with the Kings of Commerce, in order to keep the lemmings and proles under control as willing slaves. Here, too, is something else you must understand, slavery and involuntary servitude are two different things. To go into slavery is a voluntary action on the part of the slave, whereas involuntary servitude is enforced by another. So all you have to do now is ask yourself if you have recently elected, by voting, yourself into slavery?
And with that I think we’ll call it a cut.
