Part 2 Jesus as Governor
It seems as if America has forgotten about the Great Governor of the Universe that our founders had a healthy fear of. The Bible tells us the fear of the Lord is the beginning of all wisdom and now that the fear of the Lord is pretty much absent from governance, America is experiencing an unworkable mess of a government that cannot work because it has abandoned so many principals in God’s Word. Proverbs 9:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
America acts if there are no standards to be met and no Lord and Governor over all. Jesus Christ is viewed as this fuzzy warm being that loves everyone and accepts any life style. America desperately needs to understand there is a Great Governor who has set standards of conduct that must be met by both men and their nations. Psalm 9:19-20 Arise, O LORD, do not let man prevail; Let the nations be judged before You.20 Put them in fear, O LORD; Let the nations know that they are but men. And
Psalm 2:7-9 “I will surely tell of the decree of the LORD:
He said to Me, ‘You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You.
8 ‘Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Your inheritance,
And the very ends of the earth as Your possession.
9 ‘You shall break them with a rod of iron,
You shall shatter them like earthenware.’”
Psalm 2 also clearly tells us how nations need to acknowledge and follow Christ, The Great Governor, just as our founders did, particularly George Washington in his inaugural address which was in a recent post ( I recently learned at mountvernon.org that James Madison wrote that speech and now we know more about how Madison also lauded The Great Governor):
Now therefore, O kings, show discernment;
Take warning, O judges of the earth.
11 Worship the LORD with reverence
And rejoice with trembling.
12 Do homage to the Son, that He not become angry, and you perish in the way,
For His wrath may soon be kindled.
How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!
America, please consider your future as The Great Governor must judge nations in the present time as nations have no after life. Will America’s judgment be so harsh it will tingle America’s ears? 1 Samuel 3:11 The LORD said to Samuel, “Behold, I am about to do a thing in Israel at which both ears of everyone who hears it will tingle. Remember how Paul in 1 Corinthians 10 warned how everything that happened to Israel was a warning to nations that follow: 6 Now these things happened as examples for us, so that we would not crave evil things as they also craved. 11 Now these things happened to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.
Please look at how The Great Governor judged Israel before the judgment where he did away with their nation and spread them throughout the world until they became a nation again in a 1948 event brought about by The Great Governor on the exact day the Bible predicted long ago! Christians know about how Israel was taken captive by Babylon for 70 years because of disobedience but how about all those other judgments and captivity? By the way, please read the testimony of King Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel 4 about how The Great Governor rules over nations and take it from a pagan if you reject the other scripture in this post.
Here is some of the evidence in of course, Judges:
Judges 3:8 Then the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, so that He sold them into the hands of Cushan-rishathaim king of Mesopotamia; and the sons of Israel served Cushan-rishathaim eight years.
Judges 3:14 The sons of Israel served Eglon the king of Moab eighteen years.
Judges 4:2 And the LORD sold them into the hand of Jabin king of Canaan –.
Judges 6:1 Then the sons of Israel did what was evil in the sight of the LORD; and the LORD gave them into the hands of Midian seven years. Following this we have the wonderful story of Gideon defeating Israel’s captor with a few men in a story about how The Great Governor let Israel know that with his help only a few men were needed. When 32,000 men showed up to defeat Midian, they sent 22,000 home because they were afraid (Judges 7:3)! Out of the 10,000 left, the Lord chose only 300 men who then handily defeated Midian, even though the Midians were as numerous as locust (Judges 7:12)!
Here is a sobering warning of how The Great Governor rules from Psalm 78:32-34:
32 In spite of all this they still sinned
And did not believe in His wonderful works.
33 So He brought their days to an end in futility
And their years in sudden terror.
34 When He killed them, then they sought Him,
And returned and searched diligently for God;
America is terribly insecure. We have terrorist enemies sworn to kill us and we don’t even know who or where they all are but The Great Governor knows everyone of them. There are hundreds of American would be terrorist training in Syria and some of them are becoming suicide bombers for the cause of defeating Muslims enemies! Their leaders call America the Great Satan and call for our defeat.
America desperately needs the help of The Great Governor and I doubt it will come without His Churches help and the Church wants to stay out of politics!
