Submission to political authority

Rom 13:1(New Living Translation) says: Everyone MUST submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God.

Submission

The airwaves are replete with all sorts of complains and campaigns, for and against our political leaders. The question is; are you playing your own part?

 Rom 13:1(New Living Translation) says: Everyone MUST submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God.

In other words, whoever the political leader is, you are expected to submit to their authority, because he/she has been placed in that position from God. Lucifer was kicked out of heaven, because of pride. In the days of old-the Old Testament, kings were anointed by prophets, as a sign that God approved of them. Kings were political leaders.

So, if God is still the same yesterday today and forever, he still anoints political leaders today. The bible says: Touch not mine anointed… 1 chronicle 16:22; that is why David refused to kill king Saul, even when he had the chance to, because he understood the fact that God had put him on the throne and he was anointed. King Saul was not a perfect man. In fact he tried to kill David so many times-he deserved to die.

Look out for part 2 tomorrow.
