2. A monarchy is the most efficient form of government.
a. A democracy the most inefficient.
b. The only problem with a monarchy is the monarch.

A. This is a prophecy of the second coming of Jesus Christ.

3. "Jehovah" or "Yahweh" is the name of the eternal, personal God revealed in the O.T.

b. "The self-existent One" - "the becoming One" - "I AM".
c. God becomes to you what you need.
B. Righteousness is the act of being or doing right.

a. I fall in love with my psychologist because he showed me what I did was right under the circumstances or he gives me pills that make me not care.
4. The latest endeavor of man is to remove all rules or criteria of wrong or right. No absolutes - it's all relative - it depends entirely on the situation.
a. In this state, life has no content - we have no purpose or value.
b. Man's mind is thus conditioned to submit to a dictator - the antichrist.
C. Righteousness can be affected by works or faith.
