GOD RULES IN THE KINGDOMS OF MEN

Possibly 40 years ago, my father published a flyer on behalf of a Christadelphian meeting in Melbourne, Australia, for distribution. It was just prior to an Australian election and posed the question: ‘Will this be your last election?’

This month we may see a significant change of Government in Great Britain, with a radical swing. We also have, subject to God’s will, US Presidential elections in November, where the choice seems to be between a very old incompetent man, and an apparent criminal. As Christadelphians, we believe that God rules over the earth and He sets up rulers for His purpose, because of this we do not vote.

The result of the last British elections saw Brexit implemented, contrary to the predictions of all the pundits. Maybe President Donald Trump, while in the White House, performed a couple of acts relating to Israel, which were in God’s plan.

In the Bible and in the prophecy found in Daniel 4, we find an incident relating to Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon. At that time, he was the most powerful monarch on the earth; he boasted about his power and the wonder of his kingdom, but he had to learn that God was in control. In Daniel 4 we find Nebuchadnezzar’s personal account of a dream that he has and what ensued. In verse 17 of that chapter, Nebuchadnezzar explains why he had the dream and the experiences that followed. Daniel, although troubled by the dream, still provided the divine explanation. Nebuchadnezzar learnt that “the most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever he will, and sets over it the lowest of men.”

Although some of us may not regard politicians highly, we need to follow divine advice: “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God” (Romans 13:1).

We are not aware of the time of Christ’s second coming, but it is 40 years nearer than when my father’s leaflet was written and maybe current signs are more urgent and significant than ever before.
