Why do pastors and leaders avoid talking about government matters? Thankfully, there are a few who do, but it appears that the vast majority in the United States avoid talking about the government.
This is not wise because the Word of God has things to say about what is going on in government today. Without the Bible being applied to government, government has a chance to go unchecked and become increasingly wicked. I believe that it is very likely that the reason we are seeing the horrific wickedness in government now is because we as believers have avoided our responsibility to apply the Great Commission to the government.
Jesus told us to go into “all the world” and to teach “everything” Jesus commanded. Jesus commanded that government is not to be wicked and is also to submit to Jesus. The Great Commission even says that “all authority has been given to me.” This means that even the Great Commission says that governments must all submit to Jesus. This is what we are to teach those in government so that they can be convicted of sin and accept the Gospel which saves them from their sin.
If we refuse to show people their sin, we are refusing to preach the Gospel. Here’s a message from one pastor who understands this issue. He’s also guiding his congregation to not take the vaccines. You can hear the reasoning in this video:
Jeremiah 37:16-21When Jeremiah had come into the dungeon house and into the cells, and Jeremiah had remained there many days, then Zedekiah the king sent and had him brought out. The king asked him secretly in his house, “Is there…
Jeremiah 36:19-26Then the princes said to Baruch, “You and Jeremiah go hide. Don’t let anyone know where you are.”They went in to the king into the court, but they had laid up the scroll in the room of Elishama the…
If the building you are in appears to be burning down, the only moral thing to do is to warn others and to get out. Now is the time for us all to face the truth.
Much of our government and many of our institutions are attacking innocent people as if they were criminals. It’s important that we all do one important thing: we must recognize that it is wrong and oppose everyone who is involved.
It’s time for all of us to wake up and oppose tyranny. Evil is never OK, and evil coming from the government is especially wicked. There really is only one good thing to do and that is to oppose it and pray that God will allow us to bring justice to those who are doing this evil using the few brave leaders that are still obedient to the conscience that God has given them.
You might be wondering how we got here. Our once great nation is being threatened by our own government in a way that is almost identical to what England did to America in the 1700’s. How is it that wicked men found their way into the most powerful positions in the United States government? I suggest that is is because good men, those who were following the God of the Bible, did not involve themselves in the affairs of the government. God’s law applies to the government, just as it does to the individual, but when God’s people refuse to apply God’s law to the government, it allows wicked men to take over (full interview at: https://rumble.com/ve58k1-christians-must-resist-tyranny-pastor-says.html).
It really is past time to wake up, apply God’s law to our government and defy the tyranny that already has found its way into our lives. May God strengthen us to do what we should have been doing all along.
Pastor Matt Trewhella is reporting that counties all over the United States are taking a stand to protect their citizens from infringements of the Constitution by the state and federal governments.
The people are learning about Christian doctrine through The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates. Here’s what they are beginning to understand:
“The doctrine of the lesser magistrates declares that when the superior or higher civil authority makes an unjust/immoral law or decree, the lesser or lower ranking civil authority has both the right and duty to refuse obedience to that superior authority. If necessary, the lower authority may even actively resist the superior authority.”
