Therefore do not despise the chastening of the Almighty. 18 For He makes sore, and binds up; He wounds, and His hands make whole. 19 He will deliver you in six troubles; yea, in seven no evil shall touch you. 20 In famine He shall redeem you from death; and in war from the power of the sword.

7 Subjection to gov’t qualified & limited Rom 13:1-4 1 Let every person be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.2 Therefore he who resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves.Acts 5:28-2928 "We gave you strict orders not to teach in this name," he said… 29 Peter and the other apostles replied: "We must obey God rather than men!Acts 4: "Judge for your-selves whether it is right in God's sight to obey you rather than God. 20 For we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard."

9 Rom 13:3-43 For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same;4 for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath upon the one who practices evil.Acts 16:37“But Paul said to the officers: "They beat us publicly without a trial,eventhough weare Romancitizens,and threwus intoprison. And now do they want to get rid of us quietly? No! Let them come themselves and escort us out."Acts 25:10-1110 Paul answered: "I am now standing before Caesar's court, where I ought to be tried. I have not done any wrong to the Jews, as you yourself know very well.11 If, however, I am guilty of doing anything deserving death, I do not refuse to die. But if the charges brought against me by these Jews are not true, no one has the right to hand me over to them. I appeal to Caesar!"

12 “When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.”

14 God’s hand in the Law of the Land In ancient times, God, in an especial manner, on many occasions appointed the individual who was to govern; and he accordingly governed by a Divine right, as in the case of Moses, Joshua, the Hebrew judges, and several of the Israelite kings. In after times, and to the present day, He does that by a general superintending providence, which He did before by especial designation. In all nations of the earth there is what may be called a constitution – a plan by which a particular country or state is governed; and this constitution is more or less calculated to promote the interests of the community.
15 “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness…”“That to secure these Rights, Governmentsare instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is, the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute a new Government…”

19 What form of Government? Unlike prior forms of government, the Founding Fathers’ created a Republic form of government that the People themselves correct; without having to abolish that form of government to which they are accustomed. Hence the Founders provided a means within the Constitution whereby We the People could repel enemies be they foreign or domestic, terrorists or tyrants, or usurpers of Constitutional authority.A Republic if you can keep it.We the People, via the Constitution, have been given both the Power of the Sword and Purse to repel all enemies – foreign or domestic, terrorists or tyrants, or usurpers – by and through the Militia of the Several States, the use and control of lawful money and the redress provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.“,,, if you can keep it.” Not if the government can keep it or our representatives can keep it, but if you (We the People of these United States) can keep it for ourselves and by ourselves.We the People are personally responsible for maintaining and protecting the Constitution and seeing to its enforcement against all foes, be they foreign or domestic.Ben Franklin 1787

21 Paul exercised his Rights against Tyrants and Usurpers In like manner, We the People have the right and responsibility to exercise our rights against Tyrants and Usurpers.Luke 22:36 And Jesus said to them, But now, he who has a purse, let him take it , and likewise his wallet. And he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one."Without doubt one is allowed to resist against the unjust aggressor to one’s life, one’s goods or one’s physical integrity; sometimes, even 'til the aggressor’s death... In fact, this act is aimed at preserving one’s life or one’s goods and to make the aggressor powerless.”Acts 16:37“But Paul said to the officers: "They beat us publicly without a trial, even though we are Roman citizens, and threw us into prison. And now do they want to get rid of us quietly? No! Let them come themselves and escort us out."2 Cor 11:32-33In Damascus the governor,under King Aretas had the city guarded inorder to arrestme.33 But I was lowered in abasket from awindow in the wall and slipped through his hands.Quote from Thomas Aquinas as published at:

23 In 1867 the North American Review summed up the Founding Fathers’ accomplishment: “The American government and the Constitution is the most precious possession which the world holds, or which the future can inherit. This is true—true because the American system of government is the political expression of Christian ideas.”
24 Matt 6:31-3431 "Do not be anxious then, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'With what shall we clothe ourselves?' 32 "For all these things the Gentiles eagerly seek; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.33 "But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you.34 "Therefore do not be anxious for tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.Luke 22:36-37He said to them, "But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don't have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.1 Tim 6:6-76 but godliness with contentment is great gain.7 For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.8 But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.

27 Those who do not know their history are doomed to repeat it. Ecclesiastes 1:9That which has been is that which shall be; and that which has been done is that which shall be done; and there is nothing new under the sun.Supreme Court final decision on “Emergency”Emergency does not create power. Emergency does not increase power or remove or diminish the restrictions upon power granted or reserved. The Constitution was adopted in a period of grave emergency. Its grants of power to the Federal Government and its limitations of the power of the States were determined in the light of emergency and they are not altered by emergency.
