God Is The Authority in the Earth

text size A A A

God appoints the leadership in every country, island, state and jurisdiction in the earth. Are these leaders Christian conservatives? Look around the globe and answer the question for yourself. Whoever is in leadership positions around the world is there because God allowed it. God places people in leadership according to His Will and His purposes.

Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, in his dream in Daniel Chapter 4, was told by the watchers in the dream, “in order that the living may know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, gives it to whomever He will, and sets over it the lowest of men.” Daniel reiterates the same truth in verses 25 and 32. God is in control in the earth. In verse 31, the voice was heard from heaven “King Nebuchadnezzar, to you it is spoken the kingdom has departed from you! Verse 32: …… “until you know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever He chooses. “ Three times this truth is stated in this chapter 4 of Daniel. God is reinforcing this truth to us – even today - that He is the One who rules in the kingdoms of men. It is God who will, and has already selected the next President of the USA. God wants us to know that He promotes men and women and He removes them in accordance with His Will.

 Many Christians become anxious and upset over the leadership or the soon to be elected leadership in their country – president, prime minister, dictator or leader. For countries which have the voting process, Christians should pray and look to God for direction in their voting. He will direct us in our consciences and in our hearts for who we should vote. God sets over the kingdoms the lowest of men. Do not expect to see many righteous people – in accordance with God’s righteousness – in leadership . All of us should know that politics is a dirty institution. We see it forcibly before our eyes even today in the US.

In Ezekiel chapter 29:19, God said that He would give the land of Egypt to the king of Babylon – Nebuchadnezzar. Why would God do that? This was the consequence of Pharaoh’s pride. In verse 3 Pharaoh the king of Egypt said, “My river is my own; I have made it myself.” God repeated Pharoah’s words to Ezekiel in verse 9. Pride goes before a fall. God removed the Egyptians out of the land of Egypt for forty years. Then He brought them back a humbler nation. Read Ezekiel chapters 29 and 30. Read verse 15 of chapter 29. This verse stands true even today. Egypt is a diminished kingdom from what it was hundreds of years ago.

 Babylon’s army was not an army of conservation Christians. They were violent. They were sinful. Yet in verses 18 - 20 of Ezekiel 29, God said that Babylon’s army had worked for Him against Tyre. God used the army of Babylon to accomplish his Will in Tyre and in Egypt.

When Jesus was standing in judgment before Pilate, Pilate told Jesus, “Do you not know that I have power to crucify you, and power to release you?” Jesus answered, “You could have no power at all against me unless it had been given you from above.” John 19: 10,11. How is it that instead of Pilate, there was not a righteous judge interrogating Jesus? Then God’s Will would not have been done. Jesus came to die and die He did. He also rose from the dead. Today some judges are making decisions in the courts of the United States of America that are ungodly. God is allowing them to make these decisions, but He is not condoning them. God will tolerate these godless decisions made by the courts and legislatures until the cup of America is full. Unless America repents, God will execute His justice and judgement.

There is no need to panic over who will be the next president of the United States. God uses who He will. God is in control and He knows what He is doing. All we need to do is to follow Jesus’ exhortation. “Watch and pray lest you enter into temptation.”
