Baptist Pastor Tased and Beaten by Police in Arizona, Amerika – 12 stitches in the head

Jesus said “My Kingdom is not of this world”. Realise that the Bible speaks truly when it says, “The whole world lies in the power of the evil one” (1 John 5:19)

Here is a Baptist pastor who wants to stand up for his 4th amendment rights. It would seem that these “rights” are only theorerical rights now. What you have is the “right” to be abused by the police if you don’t do exactly as they say.

It should be pretty obvious by now that America is well on the way to being a tyrannical police state. Your Constitution is a dead document – it means whatever the government and the police want it to mean at the time. Of course, when I say it “is” a dead document, I haven’t really clarified what the meaning of the word “is”, is, have I?

This is really a political battle, a battle against evil in society. Such battles may bear some fruit, but for now it looks like the fruit may just be what arises from a few people waking up. Trying to build the kingdom of heaven on earth in the last days before the return of Jesus will not succeed. Iniquity and lawlessness will abound at the highest levels. What we need to do is pray and fast more, and preach the gospel more, and make disciples, so that Satan’s age will come to an end and Christ will return and throw all the unrepentant evildoers who have rejected the gospel in hell forever. That is God’s solution for the evils in society. You can’t build God’s Kingdom on the foundation of human documents like the U.S. Constitution, no matter how noble they may be.

Personally, I don’t think anyone can save the United States now. Only some of the people in it can be saved. Whatever it was, the United States is not built on the same principles as formerly. It is now based on some of the worst elements of fascism AND communism. Its just that THIS HAS NOT FULLY BECOME APPARENT YET. But we see that the churches of America have tried to change God’s law, God’s word and have taught that you can be Christian without following Jesus.

So now God will destroy America as a nation because that nation murders more babies than any other, and is leading the way in terms of destroying the family unit through pornography, vile entertainment and godless humanism. America also has also a long history of doing economic injustice and oppressing the poor of this world. Now more and more of the people of America are becoming poor. Its the only environment in which people are likely to be interested in listening to a message about ANOTHER kingdom – the Kingdom of God.

At the time of writing there seems to be some sort of bear market rally in the stock market, and the news media is forecasting that things will be fine. But it will all be in vain shortly. Judgment is certain. Dear American people, you are all slowly boiling like frogs in a kettle. If God has called you to live in America, you must get ready to suffer for your faith. Because you will suffer in this life for your faith, unless you join the Harlot Church. But then, if you join the Harlot Church (i.e. the church that gives its love to Mammon and lovers other than Jesus Christ), then you will partake of its plagues, unless you repent.

I urge you to take these kinds of events as a kind of warning. Rather than fighting for your rights, prepare to suffer and overcome Satan by means of spiritual weapons.

    1st let me say that I feel bad for this pastor and he had to go through what he went through. But, I have watched the full video a few times. Ok here is my thoughts on this. This pastor was not beaten because he was a christian, so we have to be careful when we say he suffered any persecution because of being a christian. He had these bad things happen to him because he would not obey those who had rule over him. God tells us in Hebrew 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you. Yes what the police did was uncalled for. But this pastor was in the wrong. If he would of obeyed them in the first place, non of this would have ever happened to him. As a pastor, he needed to obey them, even if he did not feel like it. I hope things go ok for him and that he pray for wisdom next time

      Folks,
      I’d just like to say first up that Robert Maynard is right about what he wrote concerning our submission to what the Bible describes as ‘governing authorities’ but unfortunately he has quoted the wrong passage of scripture. Robert, I’m not nit pocking here, but the Hebrews passage relates to spiritual authority only. Policemen do not ‘watch over my soul’ they make sure I keep the law, no matter what country I’m living in.

      The correct passage is actually Romans 13:1 – 8, and this speaks to us of the departmental structure of government (police, administration, the law makers and figureheads – emperors and governors equate to presidents, prime ministers and departmental heads in our day.)

      In the times of the Roman Empire, soldiers were often harsh and cruel and the Romans exacted an unfair tax on its populace called ‘tribute’ and this could be between 40 and 60% of a person’s income, never mind the punishments for crimes in those days (and being a christian was considered a crime) such as floggings, crucifictions, beheadings etc.

      It was God Himself who iriginally gave men authority to organise themselves after the flood of Noah’s day – to execute capital punishment for heinous crimes etc. Many people cannot accept this, but read Genesis 9:5 – 6 to confirm this view. Of course capital punishment can be misused as well (eg: political enemies setting each other up for prosecution – faked evidence etc) so no human system of justice will be perfect, but only Him whom the Bible calls “the just judge” – Jesus Christ.

      I haven’t seen the video, but I can tell you that over here in Australia, most police jurisdictions exercise a “zero tokkerance” toward any actions that they perceive to be criminal or that have criminal intent – they don’t want to get shot, stabbed, beaten up or spat on, and while there may well be cases of injustice and/or corruption, we simply cannot do without them – we cannot NOT have a police force!

      As for the rest of Robert’s contribution, I for the most part agree – well done.

    Did you write that Michael? Right? You wrote that.
    I thought the we’re building it on earth. And I even said it, I have to try and convince this person I was wrong, I will, just feel dumb, because I would get mad at churches, then say a bit that His was my doctrine. I was very stupid. Won’t be doing that again.

    Due to tighter security after 9/11 when some of our rights were taken away from us, Border Security Check Points, irregardless of their location are considered non-Constitutional zones and all directions from the Agents must be adhered to by all who are stopped at these check points. Giving them static with your attitude and comments of your rights, you are lucky you didn’t get shot or jailed. You need to have knowlegdge of how things had to change to protect the United States.

  4. This is a sad situation-I’m sorry that the pastor was beaten; however, I believe wisdom should have been exercised on this one.

    It’s been a while since my criminal law/criminal procedure days in law school, so forgive me if I am wrong-while Americans have 4th amendment rights, there are exceptions with national security being one of them. I think there is a Supreme Court case that carves out federal border patrol checkpoints as one of the exceptions where warrantless searches are justified. Of course, what constitutes “national security” is almost always a fluid concept depending upon the circumstances and the leaders in authority. I would think this may even extend to routine traffic stops/checkpoints where everyone is asked to be searched. It would be a different matter if this was an isolated incident involving just him.

    I remember one time while I was on the way to the airport, I was asked (along with others in line to park their cars) to pop my trunk so that the airport authorities could look in there. In addition, they had a mirror to look under the car. I didn’t assert my 4th amendment rights in that situation because it was a security issue that fell under the exception.

    Spiritually, the scriptures reinforce that we should be subject to our governing authorities (i.e., Romans and 1 Peter 2:13-14). Now is the time that we need to hide ourselves in Him!!!

    10Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    11Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
    12Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
    Matthew 5:10-12

    44But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
    45That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven:
    Matthew 5:44-45

    17These things I command you, that ye love one another.
    18If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
    19If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
    20Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
    21But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.
    22If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.
    23He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
    John 15:17-23

    14Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.
    17Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
    18If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
    19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
    20Therefore 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.
    21Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
    Romans 12:14,17-21

    12…being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it:
    13Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.
    1 Corinthians 4:12-13

    12Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
    2 Timothy 3:12

    13But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
    14If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
    16Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.
    17For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
    19Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
    1 Peter 4:13-14,16-17,19

    Answer this, why is it such a surprise that we be persecuted?!!

    Let me say this, everyone of us will be persecuted one way or another and therefore let me summarize all these Scriptures for you, STOP BEING SURPRISED AND REJOICE ALREADY!!
