Okay, just did that! I wrote a post... and then I thought... "this post will surely bring misunderstanding, so I'll remove it... and just let God's word speak for itself." But I know that some of you will read it... and I want you to feel free to touch base with me. Who knows... if there will come a time that I will publish it... but for now... here is the TRUTH...
1 I urge you, first of all,
to pray for all people.
Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf,
and give thanks for them.
2 Pray this way for kings and
all who are in authority
so that we can live peaceful and
quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.
3 This is good and pleases God our Savior...
1 Timothy 2:1-3 NIV
13 Submit yourselves for the Lord's sake
to every authority instituted among men:
whether to the king, as the supreme authority,
14or to governors, who are sent by him
to punish those who do wrong
and to commend those who do right.
1 Peter 2:13-14
1 Everyone must submit to governing authorities.
For all authority comes from God, and
those in positions of authority
have been placed there by God.
2 So anyone who rebels against authority
is rebelling against what God has instituted,
and they will be punished.
Romans 13:1-2 NLT
21 He controls the course of world events;
he removes kings and sets up other kings.
He gives wisdom to the wise
and knowledge to the scholars.
Daniel 2:21 NLT
