The Divine Establishment includes Divine Institutions, like Volition, Marriage, Family, and Nationalism, which function under the Laws of Establishment. Divine Institutions are the framework for preserving freedom and maintaining stability in the human race to protect the right to choose for or against God. For those who choose to have a relationship with God, the Divine Institutions protect their Spiritual life from outside interference. Because of the protection of Divine Institutions, a person is free to live the Spiritual life without fear in the devil's world. Since the Spiritual life and the Church function in the inner circle (ref. illustration), the Laws of Establishment require separation between Church and State.
The Divine Establishment of the Garden of Eden included an encapsulated, perfect environment. In the Garden man was allowed to function under the Divine Institution of Volition (free will). He was told that he could freely eat of any of the trees in the Garden except the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. He was given a choice. As long as he obeyed God, he had freedom and prosperity. Then God made the man a wife and added the Divine Institution of Marriage. As long as the man and the woman obeyed God and did not eat of the forbidden fruit, they enjoyed freedom and ruled the world. However, when they violated God's command and sinned, they suffered spiritual death in Satan's Cosmic System. So, God ordains the Laws of Establishment for man's protection, and when man violates them, he loses his freedom and maybe even his life.
After man sinned in the Garden, the Lord added the Divine Institution of Family for the preservation of the human race. Man had to work for a living, so Laws of Establishment soon included authority on the job and business in the Civilian Establishment. Then when Satan tried to establish a one-world government to enslave the human race, God intervened at the Tower of Babel and established the Divine Institution of Nationalism so that nations could defend their freedom and obey God or disobey God and suffer the consequences. To protect the nation, an army was needed, and the Military Establishment came along.
The ultimate example of the Laws of Establishment was the Mosaic Law, which the Lord gave to the nation of Israel. God dictated all of the laws that the nation was to obey. There were laws for worship, social relationships, and agriculture. Every Jew, whether a believer or unbeliever, was expected to obey the Law. The penalty for disobeying the Law was usually death. The requirement to obey the Mosaic Law ended with the Cross, but the principle of obeying the Laws of Establishment still applies. Every Christian is expected to obey authority. Christians are supposed to fulfill the intent of the Mosaic Law, which was to love your neighbor as yourself. This is called the Royal Law (James 2:8).
Matthew 25:32-34By way of application, the year, 2009, symbolized the Plagues of Egypt. However, the year, 2010, could include the 10th Judgment, which follows, just as the Pale Horse of Death that followed the other three horses of the Apocalypse. Judgment associated with the number, 10, includes the judgments of law enforcement or courts.
32 "And all the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; 33 and He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left. 34 "Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world." (NAS)

On June 26, 2010, there will be a partial Lunar Eclipse along with a Grand Cross, for intensified suffering of the woman.
The first decade of the new millennium has brought intense suffering and a rare opportunity to utilize Bible Doctrine in a strategic period of human history. Each year has special meaning.
In 2001, the color for unity was white. In 2002, the color for God's separation was orange. In 2003, the color for the Justice of God the Holy Spirit was violet. In 2004, the color for weakness in capacity for life was yellow. In 2005, the color for Grace will be white/yellow. In 2006, the color for man is red, for sin. In 2007, the color depends on the category. A category of blessing would be a different color from a category of punishment. But after the punishment, there should be a rainbow. Many colors apply to 2008, since the various aspects of the New Birth are symbolized by different colors. For example: Redemption - red; Justification - Purple; Sanctification - White, Righteousness - blue. These were the colors in the gate of the Tabernacle, which represented Christ, the way of Salvation. Various colors may also apply to 2009, since there will be many plagues. Colors to be expected include Red, for suffering, Violet, for Justice, and the plaid (mesh, net) pattern, for Judgment or a trap. In 2010, there is no single color for Laws of Establishment.
