Under God's Authority

Updated on March 11, 2011

 Every person must put himself under excisting authority, God is over all human authority; the government positions are those which God appointed.

So, if someone rebels against authority, he is going against what God appointed, rebels will receive condemnation, rulers don't scare people who do good things; only evil-doers should fear.

Do you want to be unafraid of a man in authority? Do good things! then he will honor you, he is God's servant for your own good, but, if you commit a crime, you should be afraid because he can use force! he is God's servant to give fair punishment to anyone who commits a crime.

So, you must obey, not only because you could be punished, but also for the sake of your conscience.

This is why you pay taxes, these men are servants of God, giving all their time to ruling, pay them back whatever you owe; tariffs, taxes, respect, or honor.

The only thing you should owe anyone is LOVE.

The person who loves another person has made the law complete.

"You must not commit adultry."

"You must not commit murder."

"You must not want something which belongs to someone else."        Exodus 20:13-15,17

And, any other command is covered by this one sentence;"Love other people the same way you love yourself."             Leviticus  19: 18.

Love does not hurt other people, so, love is the completion of the law.

You know this is the right time for you to wake up from sleeping, it's late! the time for our deliverance is now nearer than when we first believed.

The night is almost gone, daytime is near! so, put away deeds of darkness, put on the weapons of light.

We should live properly like people do during the daytime, not with orgies or by getting drunk, not committing sexual sin or having wild sex parties, not with fighting or jealousy, instead, put on the Lord Jesus Christ, don't think about how to satisfy the evil desires of your human nature.
Don't let evil defeat you, instead, use good to defeat evil.

      Raymond,

      Praise God for this important reminder. Forgive me if I add one similar verse to illustrate a point...

      In John 15:12 God tells us:

      This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

      A cat of 9 tails and 9 hours on the cross until you bleed to death is a whole lot of love. This is how much we are commanded to love one another. Honestly, for one of my kids I would be first in line... a complete stranger... the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak...

      Praise the Lord

      Thank you for a great reminder of this message!

      - Harlan
