Welcome to the Lex Rex Web page
Let us consider a sobering thought. If you were to die this very moment, and found yourself outside the gates of Heaven, standing before the Almighty God, how would you answer God's question: "Why should I let you into my Heaven to spend eternity with Me?" The answer to this question is found in only one place. It is found in the Word of God . . .the Book . . . the Holy Bible.
Various answers to this question are advanced, but only one answer is in the Book. Of course, some people answer the question by saying, "Well, I don't believe there is a Heaven or a Hell, so, for me, the question is irrelevant. If this is your answer, consider for a moment that if you are right, those who do believe there is a Heaven and Hell will end up in the same place with you after death, BUT if they are right and you are wrong, then they will rejoice in Heaven while you will anguish in Hell. This is certainly not the most happy of endings, but this is exactly what the Bible teaches!
On the other hand, there are those who, while professing belief in Heaven and Hell, fully expect that God will let them into Heaven because they have lived good lives, done good deeds, and tried their best to please God. Sadly, the Book doesn't teach this, and says just the opposite, that good works do not provide entrance to God's Heaven. The Bible teaches that God is perfect, and that as we might expect, only perfect people are permitted to be with God for eternity in Heaven. Unfortunately, no matter how hard we may try, none of us are or can be perfect. The Bible puts it this way, "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God."--Romans 3:23. Does this mean that no one will enter into Heaven? Not at all, because while God is perfect, infinitely wise and just, Scripture tells us that He is also merciful. That is the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ! The Bible teaches us that "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."--John 3:16
into the world to pay for our sins by dying on the Cross at Calvary, so
that when we confess our sins and repent of them, and accept Christ as
the Lord and Saviour of our lives, He cleanses us from all unrighteousness.
Then, when we stand before the Gates of Heaven God sees us covered with
the perfection of Jesus, because He paid the price of God's justice for
us; and God fulfills His promise: "He that believeth on the Son
hath everlasting life." Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth,
and the life: no man cometh unto the father but by me."
Not because of anything that we can do, but by what Jesus did, are we able
to enter into Heaven. You can be absolutely certain that if
you were to die this moment you would spend eternity in Heaven because
it is a free gift, received by all who believe in Jesus. The Bible
tells us we can not do it on our own. But, think about it, why would
we want to, when we can have Jesus who loves us and who promised to be
with us, even unto the end of the world.
WHAT DOES LEX REX MEAN?
The literal meaning of the two words is "Law King" . . . which as Rutherford explained ( and was imprisoned for what he said and came close to losing his head for it) . . . means the King (or man) is not the supreme Law; but the Law (God's Law) is the Law over all. Rutherford preached that even the Kings and other rulers are subject to God and His Law. In other words, it's not "Rex Lex" . . . meaning the King is Law; but it's "Lex Rex" . . . meaning the Law of God is King. While man in his greed for power and control, and in denial of the Supreme Being and His "rules for living" would like to believe "man can be as God" as the Bible tells us the Devil deceived Eve and then Adam into believing in the Garden of Eden, the truth is that God is still on His throne and all creation is subject to His infinite power and wisdom. Thus, it is axiomatic that "You can deny the Truth, but you can't change it."
Rutherford's preaching inspired believers; and history tells us that their persecution by would-be "rulers of the World" down through the ages continues to the present time. Interestingly, America became the first nation on earth to be founded . . . from Mayflower Compact, the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution of the United States . . . as "One Nation Under God" . . . not one nation under man. Ours is not a "Democracy" (mob rule) but a "Republic" based upon God's Law . . a part of history no longer taught in Government Schools.
You can see why Emperors, Kings, Dictators Tyrants, Nazis, Communists, Fascists, New World Order Advocates and all who have sought and are still seeking to control the people and resources of the World disagree and always will disagree with Rutherford and all others who declare that God and His Law is Supreme and all mankind is subject to Him. Witness the violence against those who say, "Our allegiance is to God. His Law is Supreme." For man's selfishness, greed and arrogance loyalty to God must be abolished. Loyalty to the State must be the order of the day.
