Rulers are to Be For Our Benefit Not Our Detriment
For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. (Romans 13:3-4 KJV)
God’s Word says that authority and leaders of this world are not to be a terror to good works but of those works which are evil. Read that verses again and let this truth sink into your heart and mind.
“For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil…”
The world is rapidly moving towards adapting a position that is not consistent with this verse. In fact, the world is quickly spinning into a opposite direction which rests in flagrant opposition to God’s Word. Those elected into the world’s authority positions are radically clinging to values, and a mindset found at work in this world which has no fear of the wrath of an eternal holy God.
Most leaders today flee from aligning with principals and commandments found in God’s Word, choosing rather to unify with the darkness and evil of the god at work in this world. Many have not stopped to consider that God is the ultimate authority one day all will have to give an answer.
