(A quote from Charles Stanley)

Because government is instituted by God as His “minister ... for good” (Romans 13:3-4), it functions best when leaders honor and obey Him. Throughout Israel’s history, God commended kings who followed His laws and worshipped only Him. The course of the nation was influenced by each king’s beliefs and behavior. Since this principle is still applicable today, righteous leaders have tremendous potential to affect their nation in a positive way. The Lord will guide and support God-fearing leaders who seek His wisdom and direction for their decisions.

As important as rulers are in determining a nation’s future, its citizens also play a vital role, especially in democracies where leaders arise from within the populace. Christians who share their faith and raise children in God’s ways can influence their nation’s values and choice of rulers. When both leaders and citizens align their views with God’s, the helpless are protected, the guilty are punished, and the innocent are vindicated.

Looking at our nation today, you might feel discouraged. But you can make a difference in your circle of influence by living compassionately and sharing the good news of Christ. The more the love and freedom of Jesus is understood, the more our nation can be blessed by its citizens.

The rule of anarchy is a great danger to society and will lend itself to the rise of the coming world leader.  The absence of law is at the center of a state of Anarchy.  The second seal releases this spirit of chaos and confusion. Anarchy is, by definition, the absence of the rule of law. Most in this world are leaning toward it in their thought process concerning government. This trend toward Anarchy will play a pivotal role in the rise of the coming world leader. Frustration with the government has never been at a higher level. The lack of statesmanship seems to stir people towards accepting more of an anarchist position. The second seal reveals what it looks like when Anarchy rules. Rev 6:3  And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. Rev 6:4  And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.  Peace is taken from the earth under anarchy, which leaves people to do what is right in their own eyes. Without a moral structure revealed in the rule of law, people will be free to kill others and take from others whatever they want without any consequence.  In the absence of any rule of law, the Anti-Christ will fill that vacuum and begin to conquer the people to bring them under his great deception.

I pray that the people of God will walk humbly before the God of the Bible and under His divine rule of law for our lives. May we seek to respect the government that is over us without compromising our stand on the Word of God and our allegiance to Christ.
