Think on this: “The Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets over them the lowliest of people.”…”Jesus the Messiah, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the Ruler of the kings of the earth.”…”I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people — for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet in all godliness and holiness.” ( Daniel 4:17; Revelation 1:5; I Timothy 2:1-2)
Pray on this: Holy Father, in keeping with your admonition we do pray for our elected leaders. We pray for great wisdom and insight in the determinative decisions they make. We pray that you restrain and constrain any action they might take that would be harmful to your people. We pray they would seek you for all the policy and planning they do, and make regular Bible reading a top priority. In Jesus name, AMEN!
I had to grin in agreement with you when you said that Yeshua is the “glue” that holds everything together. I loved this analogy when I heard it in a Bible study a long time ago and it’s always “stuck” with me. (Sorry. I just had to say it.) Thank you for this message, Sir. I used to get anxious and upset over various things political, but then I realized that, in light of the scriptures you shared in this message, I should just do what I can (pray and vote) and then leave the rest to God. There is such PEACE in knowing that the Prince of Peace is the One who is REALLY in control. And, one day soon, He will return to set up HIS kingdom and make Jerusalem a praise in the earth. Amen! Maranatha! Our Lord, come!
Good evaluation of the rule of Yahweh over government of all nations.
I’ll say that Obama used the name GOD several times in his inauguration ceremony as well as several others like Sen. Schumer and the prayers, including one that prayed and used the name Jesus. I believe that Yahweh is in control of this nations government and it will be interesting how he manifests himself in Washington. He is even using folks like you and Patti to make a difference to legislators, I have seen that first hand. Blessings.
I want to thank you for the message, I need to do just what you say, other than
getting upset behind our political leaders, and that is pray and leave
them in the hand of our God. I say come Lord Jesus, come.
