The Foundations of our Constitutional Monarchy
22 (For the LORD is our Judge, The LORD is our Lawgiver, The LORD is our King; He will save us);(Isaiah 33:22)
This passage of Scripture is the foundation for our Constitutional Monarchy (or as some call it - our Crowned Republic). There is only One Who can be trusted to embrace all three arms of the Government - that is: the Judiciary, the Legislature and the Executive - and that is the Lord. In our system of Government, these three arms of the Government are separate, and operate as checks and balances and complementary elements of the government process.
It is a power-hungry despot who would seek to be as God, and amalgamate any or all of these elements of government under the ambit of one centralised power source. The present push, in Australia, by Republicans to shift our Crowned Republic to a Politicians' Republic is a power grab. Only God can be trusted to have such concentration of Power and Authority. Fallen, human, sinful politicians need to have their power and authority divided and frustrated by slowing impediments, lest they get their will unchecked.
