Whosoever, therefore, resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God; and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation [judgment] – Romans 13:2.
God, the supreme Sovereign, has ordained that there should be governing authorities. Every believer is to be subject to these various authorities, even if these authorities are as evil as Nero, the emperor of Rome who cruelly persecuted Christians. When Paul wrote this letter, Nero was in power, yet Paul exhorted the Roman believers to submit to Nero’s authority because that authority was ordained by God Himself.
The purpose of human government is to uphold the good and punish the evil. Right and wrong are determined by the State. The Christian citizen is to obey the government as long as the government does not demand citizens to violate God’s Word. Governmental officials hold office by virtue of God’s appointment and are primarily the servants of God in their offices.
Although we may have some in authority that appears to be madly insane, they didn’t get into office without God allowing them to hold that office. Nothing happens without God allowing it. He will sometimes use evil to bring His people to righteousness. The Egyptians died a senseless death because they would not free the children of Israel to serve their God. All they had to do was to submit to the Word of God “Let my people God”.
We’re in a pandemic and thousands of people are dying and many more will die because they rather have the freedom to not wear a mask to keep themselves safe as well as others. This is called disobedience to those who have authority over them. We all should be concerned about the well-being of ourselves and others. Although we have leaders saying it’s okay not to wear a mask, we must use common sense, when medical professionals are saying wear a mask.
Satan uses people to influence others, his goal is to kill as many as he can before they accept Christ, if one dies before expecting salvation through Jesus Christ they are hell-bounded rather one believes it or not. The Word of God is true, and He has given us this truth through His written Word. The Bible speaks about the death angel being sent to the earth prior to the return of Jesus (And I looked, and behold a pale horse, and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him – Revelation 6:8). We’re living in the book of Revelation, and the seals are being opened, death is on the earth through the pandemic and people killing one another.
Take time to read and study the Bible, repent of your sins, ask God to forgive you and save you. Accept His salvation by His Son, Jesus! Submit yourselves to the written Word of God and those who have authority over you. There is life after death and where you end up determines how you live your life now!
