God and government.
“God alone changes times and seasons; He deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning” (Daniel 2:21).
“No one from the east or the west or from the desert can exalt themselves” (Psalm 75:6).
All and every authority on the earth is established by sovereign ruler of the whole world – God Himself. All leaders are ordained by God and they are accountable to God. Every governing authority and ruler must to know and understand that “the Most High God is sovereign and rule over all kingdoms on earth and sets over them anyone He wishes” (Daniel 5:21).
If any country, nation or even the smallest council really do want to prosper and grow as strong and independent in spite of all disasters and crisis in the world, they must submit fully to the almighty God by following His rules and commandments. They must govern by godly principles and not principles established by this world. No president or the most wise ruler of the world are able to wage war against poverty in their country, against delinquency of their people, against war or any threat from outness of the world as only by submitting and listening to the only ONE who “makes nations great, and destroys them; who enlarges nations, and disperses them. Who deprives the leaders of the earth of their reason; who makes them wander in a trackless waste” (Job 12:23-24).
Only God have all strength and wisdom and there is no difference how smart or foolish the present rulers are. Country can prosper only when its rulers follow Christ. “For dominion (kingdom, kingship) belongs to the LORD and He rules over the nations” (Psalm 22:28). Christ's kingdom already has come over all the world. Those who submit Him can be protected, guided and leaded by God Himself; without Him all of us are under the power of devil one. Leaders and presidents are only vessels in God's hands and people receive in accordance to their disobedience or obedience to the Word of God.
“When a country is rebellious, it has many rulers, but a ruler with discernment and knowledge maintains order” (Proverbs 28:2).
Wise ruler of the country will follow Christ in order to obey the mighty Ruler who is over him – God. It is absolutely doesn’t matter what rulers and leaders think or believe. Sooner or later they will find out their present dereliction of duty against the KING of all kings if they rely on own knowledge and understanding.
All who lean on own power and wisdom, and walk in the way of the world which is all under the power of devil one, are turned away from God, they are on a destructive way. God will judge every human being that has ever lived and that should be the reason to fear Him from whom nothing in all creation is hidden (Hebrews 4:13).
But blessed are all “who fear the LORD, who walk in obedience to Him” (Psalm 128:10). All leaders of the earth! Learn to fear the LORD, keep His statues and His commandments may you and your people may live in peace and enjoy their lives abundantly under your governing.
“Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear and celebrate His rule with trembling. Kiss His son, or He will be angry and your way will lead to your destruction, for His wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in Him” (Psalm 2:10-12).
No ruler apart from God is able to rule and succeed in his high God’s given duty! One of the God’s promises is:
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).
