Who Will Govern?
ISAIAH 9:7 NLT 7 His government and its peace will never end. He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of his ancestor David for all eternity. The passionate commitment of the LORD of Heaven's Armies will make this happen!
This is the question we must face, both as individuals and as nations. Who, or what, will be our "king?" Who will be our "supreme court?" (By "supreme court" I do not mean a group of people who meet in a building, but the final authority that we base our ideas, principles, and actions upon.)
We have a choice. We can choose Jesus Christ and His Kingdom of Love, Light, and Life. Or we can choose selfishness and darkness and death.
Whenever we reject Jesus and His Word from ruling over us, whether as individuals or as a nation, we choose darkness.
I do not advocate any religious control over government. What we need instead is people in government who know the truth and will speak and act in truth and not out of self interest. We need people in secular government who are submitted to Jesus as their Lord and are willing to live and govern with His love for mankind, instead of acting in self interest.
MATTHEW 6:10 NLT 10 May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
SAY THIS: Jesus, and those who have died with Him to self interest, are qualified, and should be selected to govern.
