GOD not Gov

When God proclaims something, that thing becomes a reality. When God said, “Let there be light”, there was light. No question. What happens when the Government plays God? It didn’t work out so well for King Nebuchadnezzar and worked out even worse for Herod in Acts 12 when he was struck down and died for playing God. Have you noticed the increase of hubris from some branches of our Gov as it plays God more and more? The new motto could be something like “There is no God by Gov and Darwin is its prophet.” What is happening in our nation that indicates the Gov is playing God?

As I mentioned when God proclaims something it actually comes to pass. Yet the Gov keeps proclaiming things like a god that it has no spiritual (or political) power to bring to pass. The recent terrorist shooting at Ft. Hood is an example. Who knew that the Gov had declared military bases as “Gun Free Zones”? I certainly was not aware of this. Why on earth would we train our military personal in the use of weapons and then disarm them when on base and hire civilians to protect them? That’s stupid and it doesn’t seem like something my God would mandate.

One of the victims had just returned from Iraq where he was fighting for us. In an interview at the hospital he pointed out how helpless he felt here on the US base where he had no weapon to fight back and protect those who were being attacked so cowardly. Making declarations like “This is a gun free zone” is playing God. If God were to declare anyplace “Gun free” you can be sure it would be immediately and for the length of time he desired it to be so. Yet the Gov makes a declaration which only God can do and innocent people have paid the consequences for the arrogance of the Gov.

When the apostles were faced with a Gov that was playing God they replied “We ought to obey God rather than men.” Acts 5:29. Will you, as a Christian, allow Gov to take the place of God in your life? The Gov can’t be everywhere and can’t bring this to pass just by proclamation. But according to Isa 9:7, “the Government of God is increasing and will never end.” I know where our forefathers put their trust: “with a firm reliance on the protection of God, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”

Isa 55:11: “So is my word that goes out from my mouth — it will not return to me unfulfilled; but it will accomplish what I intend, and cause to succeed what I sent it to do.”
(Complete Jewish Bible)
