Measuring Success

The following letter was sent to David Justice after he appeared on John Bryant's radio program. David Justice is an Ambassador to the People of the United States, representing the Kingdom of Heaven.


I heard you on John Bryant's program recently. How do you reconcile your successes and failures using the Kingdom of Heaven's passports, driver licenses, registration, plates, etc. when, I understand, the Church has had their real property confiscated/seized by government, the occupants evicted and not permitted to enter, Pastor Paul Revere's motor home also seized, and many other problems with the government?


Dear Steve,

How do I reconcile losing stuff for the sake of the kingdom? You, who claim to represent the truth, have to ask? "Whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" (Matthew 16:26).

I consider it an honor to have also lost property in this fight; a Jeep CJ7 which was once my pride and joy, but not such that it exceeded my love for the kingdom of Heaven. What are you willing to lose for the sake of the kingdom? The loss of the Jeep has opened more doors than you can imagine. Yes, I could have sued to get it back. I could have sued under title 42, but to what end? The battle will not be won by fighting them on their terms, but on the terms of our commander in chief. He suffered loss for the sake of the kingdom. Are we exempt?

Have you not read the scriptures? What war has ever been won without casualties? Are you not willing to fight for the sake of the kingdom because of concern about what you might lose?

Every warrior going into battle must count the cost; he may lose even his very life. We are at war. There will be losses. Paul and Rachel, whom I love and respect deeply for standing for nonviolence, as do I, consider losses for the kingdom of God, casualties of war. "We must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God" Acts 14:22.

Your question is like asking, "Is it possible to go to war without risk of injury?" Your measure of success in this battle against evil world government is an unreasonable standard. That you would even ask the question infers that you have yet to enter the kingdom, and are far from being prepared to fight for it.

Your question is filled with the fragrance of fear of losing your first love: your stuff; and if you are not prepared to lose your stuff for the kingdom, neither are you prepared to lose your life for the king. If you are not prepared to lose your life for the sake of the king, you are not prepared to live your life for his sake either. If the United States government drafted you to fight in a war, would you be prepared to lose everything you had? Why should allegiance to the kingdom require any less?

Your question regards not the truth in love, but rather infers the condition that you will only oppose tyranny if you can keep your stuff. "No man, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God" (Luke 9:62).
