We live in a world where we all have sinned. Matter of fact it’s our nature as human being to have tendencies to do wrong.
So when we hear about Donald Trump talking down on women as if they’re objects or Hillary Clinton’s emails violations why are we surprised?
There is not a single person in all the earth who is always good and never sins. Ecclesiastes 7:20 NLT
Governments are run by humans who are subject to corruption.
Corruption Perception Index clearly shows the public’s perception on government corruption around the world.
This isn’t new or just an Untied States issue.
Still there’s no need to worry about the outcome of 2016 election when you know God is in control of the world.
RESPECT FOR GOVERNMENT
Government exists because God put it there.
Obey the government, for God is the one who put it there. All governments have been placed in power by God. So those who refuse to obey the laws of the land are refusing to obey God, and punishment will follow. Romans 13:1-2 NLT
We don’t have to like our new President.
Following God include the way we relate to governmental authorities. But if they aren’t up holding justice we need to try to change the situation in a civil way.
We all have potential to influence change but we can’t do it on our own power or if we’re caught up in our emotions.
Trust me I understand with Trump in charge our future seem hopeless. But not only are greater changes possible but it’s promised.
A RIGHTEOUS GOVERNMENT
If government corruption is going to be eliminated it’s going to come from the top.
And when I say top I mean way up there.
Satan knew Jesus was the Son of God and the ruler of the Kingdom of God but that didn’t stop him from trying to get Jesus to do wrong.
Jesus didn’t give in to temptation. Why?
Because Jesus knew He was already crowned king.
And that should be our attitude.
Don’t worry IF our future going to be okay… KNOW THAT IT’S ALREADY OKAY BECAUSE OF THE BLOOD OF JESUS!
That’s the kind of leader Christians have in Jesus Christ; a righteous leader who’s more than qualified to rule over God’s Kingdom: A government with no corruption.
THE DRIVING FORCE
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. Matthew 6:9-13 NIV
It’s safe to say that greed and selfishness is the driving force behind government corruption these days.
God’s Kingdom on earth is happening right now by Jesus teaching His followers you and me, how to overcome greed and selfishness.
Yes renewing our mind is a part of bringing God’s Kingdom on earth.
When this is done greed is replaced with contentment and selfishness replaced by the interest of others.
God’s government is ruled by love on earth and in heaven. That’s why we spread the GOOD NEWS around to give people hope.
And Oh what hope this gives us!
MAKING THE WORLD GREAT AGAIN
God has been working on restoring His earth ever since the first sin.
He even sent His Son to suffer and die to overcome the power of sin.
It’s always been HIS will to make old things new:
He will wipe ever tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Revelation 21:4-5 NIV
God promised us no more death, pain, suffering, and sorrow.
All the mental and emotional pain the world is experiencing will be over.
The question is do you believe it?
ETERNAL LIFE BEGINS WITH FAITH
All you need is a little faith. If you put what little faith you have in Jesus you will be able to see past what’s in front of you.
You will be able to see farther than four years from now.
With little faith small as a mustard seed your life will be changed by you fixing your eyes on what is not seen.
I recently held a mustard seed in my hand and I tell you, I had to focus on it to keep from losing it.
It’s that small.
I’m encouraging you today not to lose faith by keeping your focus on the everlasting joy God has for you.
HOW TO BECOME A CITIZEN OF THE GOD’S KINGDOM
Regardless of your nationality you have an opportunity to become a citizen of God’s Kingdom.
For if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9 NLT
Salvation comes by trusting Jesus Christ not man.
He is coming again just as He promised.
He’s bringing peace on earth.
This government will be over and Jesus will be crowned King of kings. There is no salvation except that offered by God. He offers salvation to all who will accept it. Are you willing to accept it?
What aspects of government do I find most difficult to accept?
Do I believe Jesus is Lord and God raised him from the dead?
