Michael Brown confessed Jesus as his Saviour in weeks before his death, pastor says
The family of Michael Brown have revealed that in the weeks before his death, the slain teenager had a premonition about his killing, and accepted Jesus Christ as his Saviour.

Pastor Charles Ewing is Brown's uncle, and shared the intimate details with reporters on Tuesday.

Ewing told the Associated Press that his nephew accepted the Lord about two weeks before he was killed, and then had an eerie dream. Brown allegedly dreamt of a body covered by a white sheet, and told his family that the entire world would one day know his name. ...

Rom 13:4 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.

There are two swords in scripture 1) the sword of the Spirit which is sharper that any two edged sword and 2) the glittering sword which, when drawn from his sheath, is bathed in the blood of God's enemies (Is 34:5). Yet, the progeny of the Pharisees created a third, civil law, to kill so-called heretics without getting blood on their hands. Devils.

Amos 9:10 All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword. Paul died on Damascus Road and, at the same time, the Jews were confined in unbelief (Rom 11:32). By which sword? Deut 32:41 If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me. By the one which figures judgment aka the Law.

When relevant prophecies are brought to bear on the letter to the Romans, its clear the day of the Lord's vengeance was in progress. The wrath of God *is* revealed from heaven. Compare to Rev 19:11-16; note the sharp sword which goes out of His mouth is the glittering sword the minister of God bears.

More on the day of the Lord....

Isa 13:9-11 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath [Rom 1:18] and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners [Amos 9:10] thereof out of it.
For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. (Compare to Joel 2:31)
And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.

Oba 1:15-21 For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head. And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD'S.

Zep 1:7 Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord GOD: for the day of the LORD is at hand: for the LORD hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests [to the marriage supper of the Lamb] (Compare to Rev 19:7, 17-18).

Knowing a day of the Lord was in progress at the time Paul penned his letter to the Romans, can anyone believe Rom 13 ordains civil magistrates? Read about He who bears the sword in Rev 19.

Rom 13:4 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.

We can learn who the minister of God is by learning what was happening during the time Paul penned his letter.

Citation: Rom 15:10 And again he saith, Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with his people.

Source: Deu 32:43 Rejoice, O ye nations, with his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, and to his people.

Sounds like judgment to me.

Text: Rom 13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand

Reference: Amo 5:20 Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?

Context: Amo 9:10 All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword (cf. Rom 7:9, Eph 2:1). Next verse is cited Acts 15:15-17 confirming fulfillment following Paul's calling.

There are many more but how much evidence is necessary to see that *a* day of the Lord (judgment) had commenced when the wrath of God was revealed from heaven (Rom 1:18). I say *a* day of the Lord as one preceded ending at Pentecost (Acts 2:16-21) and another is to come.

How dumb can one individual be? Lurker has dealt with the Scriptures. This troll just can't refute him and therefore has to belittle him. Oh wait, he belittles everything that don't agree with the devilish doctrines of the Chimera camp viz. that worship of the true God is completely compatible with Baal worship. That God don't mind truth and devilish lies living side by side!

The Sanhedrin.
"In trials of capital offences it required a majority of at least two to condemn, and the verdict of guilty could only be delivered the day following the trial, to enable the Sanhedrin carefully to go over again the whole evidence. The Sanhedrin who found the verdict had to fast all day, and the criminal was executed the day after the sentence. This leniency, however, was not extended to one who gave himself out as the Messiah, or was proved to be a false prophet, or promulgated false doctrines. The trial of such an offender was generally reserved for the forthcoming festival, when all the Israelites came up to Jerusalem. The accused was then tied in the presence of the pilgrims; he was condemned and executed the same day on the festival (Deuteronomy 17:13). But even to such a criminal a stupefying beverage was mercifully administered before his execution, to deprive him of consciousness and lessen his pain. In latter days, however, the sentence of death passed by the Sanhedrin had to be confirmed by the Roman procurator."

But I find no biblical justification for church hierarchy to crawl in bed with the state for the purpose of executing dissenters.
Thanks bro. What you say makes plenty of sense.

Bro Mike New York, I am surprised it has taken you so long to join the fray. Are your beliefs similar to what Bro Lurker has been putting forth? I know you're opposed to the usual Rom 13 interpretation, so I would be interested if you are willing to share your thoughts on this.

Pretty flimsy material to build a doctrine on.... especially when that doctrine meant the death of so many dissenters of the ruling religious machinery.

Thanks brother.

Thanks Mike, I remember you weren't on board the Romans 13 bandwagon and glad to see you speak up.

Lord willing I may tackle who the "minister of God" actually is. Seems only right after expending so much energy disproving the idea that he figures civil government. But for now I don't have the energy.

Not the same now according to our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people producing its fruits. Matthew 21:43

But Jesus called them to him and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them. It shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be your slave, even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:25-28

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself. Philippians 3:20-21

It's as though all that is "legal" must be of God. Roman law? Nazi law? Communist law? Apparently anything may claim to be legal, which is why those who object to the criminal authorities are themselves held to be criminal. Absurdity has its defendants, does it not? What do they say when the powers that be are replaced by other powers that be? Will the new powers be ordained of God, or does that apply only to the first powers?

Nero was wicked, and has ALL OF ETERNITY to pay for it. Cant you trust GOD that Nero will receive his due? If it makes you feel better, at some point I would agree it might not have been sinful to rebel but I dont know Roman Law well enough to say when. For all I know, Nero had the authority to burn Rome. Did not Samson have the authority to slay thousands? And even when a King makes a grievous mistake, it can be forgiven. Did not David kill Uriah by the sword of Ammonites? Would you retract your obligation to honour King David over that?

Its not your decision to retract from your obligations...The LORD is just, and like with David, will always judge righteously

2 Samuel 12:7 And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man. Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I anointed thee king over Israel, and I delivered thee out of the hand of Saul;
... 2 Samuel 12:9 Wherefore hast thou despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in his sight? thou hast killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon.
