Judges 8:23 “And Gideon said unto them, I will not rule over you, neither shall my son rule over you: the LORD shall rule over you.”
Thomas Paine (see 2 prior posts) describes the desire for monarchy as “one of the sins of the Jews” because it “invades the prerogative of heaven.” After quoting Judges 8:23, Paine goes on to state:
“Words need not be more explicit; Gideon doth not decline the honor, but denieth their right to give it; neither doth he compliment them with invented declarations of his thanks, but in the positive style of a prophet charges them with disaffection to their proper Sovereign, the King of heaven.”
There is only one who should rule our affections. There is only one who should rule our thoughts. There is only one who should rule our emotions. There is only one who should rule our worldview. There is only one who should rule our society. There is only one who should rule our nation – the One, the proper Sovereign, the King of heaven!
PLEASE PRAY THAT WE WOULD RETURN THE REAL KING OF AMERICA TO HIS THRONE. Ruling over us is the prerogative of heaven, and nothing else should supersede Him.
SET YOUR ALARM: If you’re alarmed (that our nation’s prosperity is so tenuously linked to others), set your alarm (to pray for our nation)!
