All Believers Must Promote And Obey God’s Standards
Passage: Ezekiel 30
God expects all nations on earth to honor him and promote his practices. Obeying Him is a true sign of our love for Him, demonstrates our faithfulness to Him, glorifies Him in the world and opens up the windows of heaven for us. It is important to note that Jehovah hates disobedience. He will judge any rebel nation that promotes sin as they did during Bible time.
“Thus says the Lord: “Those who uphold Egypt shall fall, and the pride of her power shall come down. From Migdol to Syene those within her shall fall by the sword,” Says the Lord God. “They shall be desolate in the midst of the desolate countries, and her cities shall be in the midst of the cities that are laid waste. Then they will know that I am the Lord, when I have set a fire in Egypt and all her helpers are destroyed. On that day messengers shall go forth from me in ships to make the careless Ethiopians afraid, and great anguish shall come upon them, as on the day of Egypt; for indeed it is coming!” (Ezekiel 30:6-9).
God’s Power Is Supreme
God owns the heaven and the earth. He, alone, owns supreme the authority to control all things. Therefore, all nations must promote righteous standards that honor him.
God is strong enough to bring down any nation that violates his rule of holiness. He has a history of dealing with arrogant nations that promote sin.
In the past, God has destroyed nations and brought down empires due to sin. He is still alive to exercise similar judgment on any sinful and unrepentant nations.
No earthly nation should assume it possesses any supreme power; the fact remains that nations come and go, but God’s government will last forever.
Therefore, various earthly nations and governments must appease God with godly practices.
Our government leaders must not promote practices that violate God’s law. They ought to categorize good citizenship with godly practices.
Jehovah will honor any nation and/or citizen that prioritizes his righteous standard above politics and social influences.
“Godly principles” must be the ultimate goal for any Christian. Without his principles, our beliefs are lost and useless.Click to tweet
