    (I still disagree with the taxes part, though, which I have written about in detail elsewhere so I won't rehash it here. Just didn't want you all thinking that I suddenly agreed with the present foreign corporate fraud, aka federal govt.)

    The words of John the Baptist were the very words that came to me when I first saw this post.

    David was a man after God's own heart, and God called David to be soldier.

    The Lord appeared to Gideon and called him to be a soldier to defend Israel.

    Abraham was the father of our faith, yet The Lord sent him and the small army that he had trained to defeat an enemy that had taken Lot and his family as slaves.

    Judges 3:12-30New International Version (NIV)

    Ehud


    12 Again the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord, and because they did this evil the Lord gave Eglon king of Moab power over Israel.13 Getting the Ammonites and Amalekites to join him, Eglon came and attacked Israel, and they took possession of the City of Palms. 14 The Israelites were subject to Eglon king of Moab for eighteen years.

    15Again the Israelites cried out to the Lord, and he gave them a deliverer—Ehud, a left-handed man, the son of Gera the Benjamite. The Israelites sent him with tribute to Eglon king of Moab. 16 Now Ehud had made a double-edged sword about a cubit long, which he strapped to his right thigh under his clothing. 17 He presented the tribute to Eglon king of Moab, who was a very fat man. 18 After Ehud had presented the tribute, he sent on their way those who had carried it. 19 But on reaching the stone images near Gilgal he himself went back to Eglon and said, “Your Majesty, I have a secret message for you.”

    The king said to his attendants, “Leave us!” And they all left.

    20 Ehud then approached him while he was sitting alone in the upper room of his palace and said, “I have a message from God for you.” As the king rose from his seat, 21 Ehud reached with his left hand, drew the sword from his right thigh and plunged it into the king’s belly. 22 Even the handle sank in after the blade, and his bowels discharged. Ehud did not pull the sword out, and the fat closed in over it. 23 Then Ehud went out to the porch; he shut the doors of the upper room behind him and locked them.

    24 After he had gone, the servants came and found the doors of the upper room locked. They said, “He must be relieving himself in the inner room of the palace.” 25 They waited to the point of embarrassment, but when he did not open the doors of the room, they took a key and unlocked them. There they saw their lord fallen to the floor, dead.

    26 While they waited, Ehud got away. He passed by the stone images and escaped to Seirah. 27 When he arrived there, he blew a trumpet in the hill country of Ephraim, and the Israelites went down with him from the hills, with him leading them.

    28 “Follow me,” he ordered, “for the Lord has given Moab, your enemy, into your hands.” So they followed him down and took possession of the fords of the Jordan that led to Moab; they allowed no one to cross over.29 At that time they struck down about ten thousand Moabites, all vigorous and strong; not one escaped. 30 That day Moab was made subject to Israel, and the land had peace for eighty years.

    Zephaniah 3:17
    The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing."

      All Jews hated Roman centurions. How about the Roman centurion in the Book of Acts who received the Holy Ghost? There is support for all levels of civil government in the Bible. Included will be politicians, soldiers, and police. The divine act of redemption is not a key which fits only one lock but a battering ram that knocks down all locked doors and obstacles. Redemption is mighty in power for making what is an offense unto the LORD to be sanctified unto HIM. Never discount the power in the blood to do the impossible! From the thief on the cross to King David and all the murderers and homosexuals in between them. Once covered with the blood, the saved will never say the evil that they do is not a sin. It is who so ever will and not who meets all the qualifications. It really is GOOD NEWS! Even I got covered.

        Amen to that Glen.
