“Let every soul be subject to the higher powers, for there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.” Romans 13:1
AT HIS TABLE:
Has our society lost sight of the victims in this world only to answer the petitions of murderers? And has our judicial system been hijacked to further this world's agenda? To many this world’s system has been turned upside down, where right has become wrong and wrong has become right. Of course these events have been foretold by the very same word that was given to us by God. In times past the way was completely different. If we go back to the days of Noah for example, we find that there was a covenant, a covenant that gave light to what should happen if a person should take it upon themselves to murder another person, as we read,
“Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.” Genesis 9:6
This was when God or theocracy was truly in charge in man’s eyes, these times are different now, God’s word seems to have less value, and man has devised many laws and rules that tear down or water down truth in the name of compassion. What is Christian or What would Jesus do? These questions might have very different answers today than they would have many years ago, preventing truth from enacting judicial recompense or punishment.
Even Paul in the New Testament agreed that those that wield a sword against murderers is a rightful and legitimate exercise of Government and even Godly Authority.
WHAT ABOUT THE VICTIMS…?
“For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.” Romans 13:4
Here Paul is not saying take vengeance, but rather to allow God to take vengeance, as we read,
“Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine, I will repay saith the Lord.” Romans 12:19
WE STAND ON GOD'S WORD AND SAY LET EVERY SOUL BE SUBJECT TO GOD!
