If you choose to not hear others Cry out, should your cries be heard when you Go and cry out in your own want?

Crying Out

“And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.” 1 Samuel 8:18

Today, we are taught that it is a good thing to apply to and go under the authority of rulers who force the sacrifices of the people, even though when Saul did that he was called foolish by Samuel and a violator of the commandments of God.[1]David numbered the people in order to draft them into his military, but he later confessed he had sinned against God. Today, it is a common practice among those claiming to love God.[2]

“Then shall the cities of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem go, and cry unto the gods unto whom they offer incense: but they shall not save them at all in the time of their trouble.” Jeremiah 11:12

The people were not to return to the bondage of Egypt, nor were the kings to do anything that would return the people to that state. When the people were in bondage, all the gold was in the government’s treasury, they did not enjoy the beneficial interest of their land, and the people had to pay twenty percent of their earnings to the government every year. That was and is bondage.[3]

That condition – where men have power over the choice of others – always leads to corruption and abuse. When the government becomes corrupt and the people’s burdens become great, they cry out for their freedom. Why would God send Moses to set the people free from that government and then send Jesus to set up a church to deliver them back into the same bondage? God didn't, He sent Christ to deliver the people out of the bondage that they had chosen to go back into.

“Go and cry unto the gods which ye have chosen; let them deliver you in the time of your tribulation.” Judges 10:14


The cry of the lone sheep?

Unheard Cries

The following is from the book The Higher Liberty with links to the references and quotes.

“... ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you...” 1 Samuel 8:18[4]

When Saul foolishly[5] forced the sacrifice of the people his Kingdom was doomed.

When David foolishly numbered the young men of Israel for the draft, it was called a sin against God but he repented.[6]

When Solomon and his son oppressed the people[7] the people repented from their sin of rejecting God. Those rulers should have freed the people. But evil had already been set in motion, the nation was divided and conquered in their hearts.

“Go and cry unto the gods which ye have chosen; let them deliver you in the time of your tribulation.” Judges 10:14

There are some verses[8] that may lead to confusion if not seen in the context of the spirit of love and dominion of God:

“But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous [are they], self-willed, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.” 2 Peter 2:10

Everywhere else the word translated "government" in 2 Peter 2 is translated "dominion". If dominion is a right and responsibility endowed by God and men give that divine inheritance away in exchange for comforts of the flesh then have we despised the dominion of God?

“For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.” Romans 8:15[9]
