Believers and Politics
I have met and heard of many believers who completely refuse to get involved in politics of the day. They claim it is not right to mingle with politics. This is a mistake. The body of Christ needs representatives in the congress and affairs of governance to survive. Most of the congressmen and lawmakers are not believers, and as such would not support any law that favors Christians. So, refusing to vote or get involved in politics does not help but harms the body of Christ.
All Leaders are Ordained Ministers of God
If anyone reading this article is a believer, he must also believe that the government and the leaders and the presidents of any country are ordained of God. Politics has been created by God and politicians are God’s children too. They are all doing the works that God created them to do. The bible says in Romans 13:1 King James Version (KJV)
Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
Nothings happens outside of God. Every little action is ordained by God. Nothing takes God by surprise, so do not join others and murmur against his anointed. God created Pharaoh for his own purpose in Romans 9:17 King James Version (KJV). So who are we to condemn Pharaoh or his acts as recorded in the bible.
For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the earth.
Worship or Obedience to Constituted Authority?
It does not mean that a believer must worship the King or President, but must subject himself to their authority while still on earth. A believer must never be known to be lawbreaker in the society. Jesus said we must give to Caesar what belongs to him and to God what belongs to God.
Mark 12:17 And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. King James Version (KJV)
There is a sudden surge of war against believers in Jesus Christ worldwide. Believers must wake up and join the ruling class to ensure adequate representation and contribution to the laws that govern the people. Christians are pro-life and do not support otherwise. We believe that God created all of us and gave us the gift of Life and the Power of Choice which makes us higher than pets or other animals. Many men and women claim there is no God, and that God is a myth just like the Santa Claus. They work on the principle; “If you cannot see, feel or understand it, then its doesn’t exist”. Believers everywhere should without strife and war, share their testimonies and the message of the gospel with these set of people. We have to take the political sphere by storm and propagate the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all even in congress.
2 Corinthians 10:3-5 King James Version (KJV) 3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
Our Kids in DANGER!
There is another war going on in our schools. God is being drastically removed from the classrooms and demons are being introduced to our kids. This is one of the reasons why we have lost so many young people to drugs, thuggery, suicide and gangs. The enemy uses the “Catch them young” principle to accomplish this. While believers are sleeping, the enemy is planting tares and weed in their garden, the weed always grows faster and snuffs life out of the seeds which get dry and die of starvation. When we have more believers in congress, they will unite and bring back the Jesus into our school curriculum. The message of the gospel needs to be taught to our kids in schools as they grow up because their minds would always grow up with whatever they are taught in elementary schools. Stories about David, Abraham, Joseph, Samson, Elijah and Daniel and Jesus Christ need be taught to our kids in schools to prepare them for their future.
Proverbs 22:6 New King James Version (NKJV) 6 Train up a child in the way he should go, [a]And when he is old he will not depart from it.
Godly morals and values are only upheld by believers who live according to the word of God. Ungodly men will only promote ungodly morals and implement same while believers complain and murmur in their church buildings. God will no more come down to earth physically to fight for us but has given us the Holy Spirit as a teacher and comforter. The more believers we have in congress the more Godly morals, laws and values will be enacted and the better the society will become. People live wanton lives and believe everything ends when they die, because they are not taught the truth that every of their actions will be accounted for in the last day of judgment. They are not also taught that there is another life after this life.
Believers, I urge you to Go out there, Vote and be Voted for! Lets take over the congress! The kingdom of God needs you to wake up and be counted among the Congressmen of your constituency.
