late 14c., “act of governing or ruling;” 1550s, “system by which a thing is governed” (especially a state), from Old French governement “control, direction, administration” (Modern French gouvernement), from governer “to steer, be at the helm of; govern, rule, command, direct,” from Latin gubernare “to direct, rule, guide, govern,” originally “to steer, to pilot”(see govern). Meaning “governing power” in a given place is from 1702. Compare governance.
late 13c., “to rule with authority,” from Old French governer “steer, be at the helm of; govern, rule, command, direct” (11c., Modern French gouverner), from Latin gubernare “to direct, rule, guide, govern” (source also of Spanish gobernar, Italian governare), originally “to steer, to pilot,” a nautical borrowing from Greek kybernan “to steer or pilot a ship, direct as a pilot,” figuratively “to guide, govern” (the root of cybernetics). The -k- to -g- sound shift is perhaps via the medium of Etruscan. Intransitive sense from 1590s. Related: Governed; governing.
Why does any free-thinking sentient being need to be controlled or guided as a ship, unless the one controlling or guiding wishes to control or guide for its own purpose rather than the inherent purpose of the vessel? If you understand government for what it truly is, instead of the mask it wears to deceive you, even the Bible will make sense to you apart from religious hypocrisy.
There is a reason Christianity places such an emphasis on “the Kingdom”, especially the Jehovah’s Witnesses, except they misrepresented the Kingdom to actually subliminally reinforce Roman imperialism. Have you ever noticed the stark similarities between political campaigning and evangelism? The politicians and preachers each send out witnesses to testify in the community of why the people need to choose to be ruled over by their candidate or congregation.
The only true government, however, is autonomy, and even the writers of the TaNaKh bore this out in the texts. Yes, most are familiar with the Essene Master, when asked by the Pharisees to show them the Kingdom (remember that the Pharisees were not at all followers of this Master) responded by declaring to them not to go anywhere others tell them to go claiming the Kingdom is in any of those places, because the “Kingdom is within you”. The Kingdom is within even the Pharisees, who didn’t believe in Jesus.
Long before this, the writer(s) of Jeremiah stated that the new covenant wasn’t like the old covenant that required people to follow laws presented to them by others. Instead the new covenant is that Torah is written upon your innermost being, and you have absolutely no need for anyone to teach you anything. Everyone will know his or her own way for him or herself. So this is why you must be born again in order to enter the Kingdom- at birth you are free of domestication; you are saved from indoctrination.
The only way into the Kingdom is to repent; that is to return to obeying your own Soul versus choosing to have idols controlling and guiding you. Likewise, when you have repented and entered the Kingdom you no longer have a desire to control and guide others. You LOVE others as you LOVE yourself. The government now uses the media to disseminate their propaganda to get you to choose to be their slaves, as well as continuing to use their agents in the communities.
Ironically, Christianity is doing the same thing, and in many ways are intermingling the message of their idolatry with the agenda of the state. Though this was actually the plan all along. The goal has always been to force the people to all think alike, because it makes them so much easier to control then. They then use those who willfully submit to these human governments to try to shame and bully the rest in fear, so that they would choose slavery too. They just didn’t realize that some of us are just too powerful to ever be house broken.
Their lies of future reward and threats of punishment don’t move us. I LOVE myself enough that I don’t need the acceptance nor approval of another. My Pattern and I are one, so I don’t need a sky daddy, a president, a governor, or any other entity to rule over me. I AM that I AM, and I have the receipts to show that I AM God and King. I AM just not the God religion introduced you to, or the King politicians invented for you (i.e. the Constitution).
