I think it’s amazing that there are individuals and governments that have deemed themselves to be wholly powerful and not subject to any other authority or powers. We see this not just in the world but in our own nation today where we have individuals that are chosen leaders who believe they are solely independent of any national power, or peoples influence, and operate as if no one has the ability to defer what they do whether it be good or bad. And yet they fail to realize that they are in power for a purpose, one that most have no consciousness of since it is derived by the will of those who positioned them there, to begin with.
Now don’t get ahead of me here, I am not referring to those who by tyranny has established a regime of a rule that disregards the well-being of its people, and evilly promotes suffering and discourse solely for its own existence. But more specifically those who are in positions of power by governing forces not solely of those applied by any constitutional rights, as in the leaders being determined by the will of the people and not the will of the individual or any political party or social class.
OK, just so we have some understanding in regards to authorities and powers, nothing is being done without oversight from the one who is the ultimate authority and power, God. Romans 13:1 (KJV) 1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. This is interesting this says there is no power unless it comes from God, now stay with me for a moment, how these powers come to be is not illustrated here but only the fact that there is really only one power, God’s. Psalm 66:7 (KJV) 7 He ruleth by his power forever; his eyes behold the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah. God is not fooling around here He is paying attention to what is going on in regards to any power being exalted in the earth, and anyone who uses their power in a rebellious manner in respect to Him, and the people, is going to find out they are accountable to Him first.
Proverbs 3:27 (KJV) 27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it. Look it is an unfortunate situation when those who are in some manner of power choose to use it for something other than the good of the people. But this is all too often the issue within nations that are being politically ruled by those who are immorally conscious, why is morality an issue in this, it is that for someone to morally do what is right brings into play a consciousness of something larger than themselves. As morality is required in dealing with things on our level in creation, while spirituality is required to deal with things on God’s level for creation.
Back to my focus herein that in this nation of states that is the one and only republic on the face of the earth also has those who have garnered in their thinking that the power that has been given by God and the people is for them to use without any accountability. I believe we can say that the most recent elections held this past Tuesday would render a statement to that effect, in that the people driven by a consciousness of morality deemed the past users of power were not doing so in a way that was beneficial to their present manner of living and the future of their family.
So why should we be concerned about any of this? Simply because God has not given us the ability to exercise our own will for the purpose of imposing some immoral mannerism upon others, and those that choose to do so are not in any way exercising theirs for the benefit of all. Immorality is only powerful when the people choose to willingly accept it as the natural thing to do, and those who vote to keep those in power who exercise an immoral manner in their living through lies, disparaging tactics, deceptions, and outright corruption are revealing a consciousness devoid of any thought of accountability.
Anyone who uses such powers contrary to the will of God and the benefit of the people will find themselves without any power and subjugated to the power of the one who is above all, so do not for a minute think that the prayers of those in this nation or any other are not heard by God. No matter what someone thinks they have the power to do if it is in contrast to God’s will for His creation then there are consequences that will arise, not because I say so, but because He says so. Micah 2:1-3 (MSG) 1 Doom to those who plot evil, who go to bed dreaming up crimes! As soon at it’s morning, they’re off, full of energy, doing what they’ve planned. 2 They covet fields and grab them, find homes and take them. They bully the neighbor and his family, see people only for what they can get out of them. 3 GOD has had enough. He says, “I have some plans of my own: Disaster because of this interbreeding evil! Your necks are on the line. You’re not walking away from this. It’s doomsday for you.
Those in power in this nation that believe they have the power to change it into what they want, be it a one-party political power, or a socialist state run by some tyrannical monarch, will find out that the one who truly is in power and of authority far above theirs, will have the final word.
