“There is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.” (Romans 13:1 in part)
We in the United States think that we elect presidents, but they are authorities and God says that He establishes them. So, who is right, God, or man?
All my brothers become angry with me when I say that I do not vote. It is as if I am doing something wrong! If they really believed in a free country then they would have to accept, with out prejudice, my right not to vote.
I have found, over the years, that my choice for president was not God’s choice. I have only stood in God’s way by voting for the candidate that did not win! Had I voted in the last election I would have done so again.
I have also found that many Christians do not believe God. They say that they believe “in” God and they believe that He has a Son that was sent to save them and that is as far as they go. They do not study and therefore they know nothing more about God.
If they did study, they would understand that God gave or let us have this president. The world got the president that they wanted and Christians got the president that they deserve, because they did not believe God.
Christians in this country do not believe Romans 13:1, because they do not want to. They chose to believe that Jesus came to save them and just like the last church in Revelation, they say “I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing”, but they do not realize that they are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.
One who is naked has no covering. Jesus is our covering for sin.
It is not enough to believe “in” God. Even Satan and all of his angels believe “in” God. However, they do not believe God.
In my opinion, with my understanding, I am going to believe God, so I believe Romans 13:1. I also believe that we are the Church of Laodicea. The last Church, lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, a group of people that do not love God enough to search for understanding. Well, we do search for the words of salvation, but once we hear them, we stop the search and tell everyone how rich we are and that we need nothing else: REALLY?
“Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent”. (Rev 3:19).
Revelation 3:19 are not my words, but the Word of God. As for me, I am busy repenting of my own unbelief.
