Passion for Politics

Tuned in to FoxNews or CNN, our eyes turned to the White House, heated debates, firm stances. Our passion for politics and government is God-given.  We have been made kings and priests unto God to rule with Him now & always.  Jesus government will continue to increase and expand forever.  Forever!  Across the nations, across the galaxies.  And it will be a government of peace, justice, truth, righteousness. 

He rules His kingdom by and through intercession.  He created … well creation… through the spoken word.  Now we have been given this same authority to speak to God and create shifts in reality according to His will.  The government and politics are run from the central point of God’s throneroom.  This same throne we are told to approach with boldness.  Today we are made to govern the world by faith through the power of prayer.

In the coming age, the faithful lovers of God will be placed in seats of government to rule according to His righteous ways and guidance.  This reward is promised to us both in the Millenial Kingdom and in eternity.  It begins now but it will go on forever.

So, don’t despise interest in american & international politics and governments.  It’s only natural. But remember always that the true power and authority goes out from a real throne room in heaven now & always.

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders…Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end.  Is 9:6,7

To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne. Rev. 3:21

I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his image and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years… Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years. Rev 20:4, 6

And have made us to our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.  Rev 5:10

  • „Politics!“ I said bitterly. „I could run it better myself.“
    „I’m sure you could,“ he agreed gravely, „but, Flicka, you don’t understand.“
    „I understand all too well!“
    „No, honey bun. You understand that there is no good reason why you
    should not walk straight through that door and enjoy yourself by shopping
    until it is time to go inboard the Tricorn. And you are right
    about that, for there is no need at all for you to be locked up in here when
    you could be out there making some freeport shopkeeper happy by paying
    him a high price which seems to you a low price. So you say ‚Politics!’ as if it
    were a nasty word-and you think that settles it.“
    He sighed. „But you don’t understand. Politics is not evil; politics is the
    human race’s most magnificent achievement. When politics is good, it’s
    wonderful
    and when politics is bad-well, it’s still pretty good.“
    „I guess I don’t understand,“ I said slowly.
    „Think about it. Politics is just a name for the way we get things done …
    without fighting. We dicker and compromise and everybody thinks he has
    received a raw deal, but somehow after a tedious amount of talk we come up
    with some jury-rigged way to do it without getting anybody’s head bashed in.
    That’s politics. The only other way to settle a dispute is by bashing a few
    heads in … and that is what happens when one or both sides is no longer
    willing to dicker. That’s why I say politics is good even when it is bad
    because the only alternative is force-and somebody gets hurt.“
    „Uh … it seems to me that’s a funny way for a revolutionary veteran to talk.
    From what I’ve heard, Uncle Tom, you were one of the bloodthirsty ones who
    started the shooting. Or so Daddy says.“
    He grinned. „Mostly I ducked. If dickering won’t work, then you have to fight.
    But I think maybe it takes a man who has been shot at to appreciate how
    much better it is to fumble your way through a political compromise rather
    than have the top of your head blown off.“ He frowned and suddenly looked
    very old. „When to talk and when to fight- That is the most difficult decision to
    make wisely of all the decisions in life.“ Then suddenly he smiled and the
    years dropped away. „Mankind didn’t invent fighting; it was here long before we were. But we invented politics. Just think of it, hon- Homo sapiens
    is the most cruel, the most vicious, the most predatory, and certainly the most
    deadly of all the animals in this solar system. Yet he invented politics! He
    figured out a way to let most of us, most of the time, get along well enough so
    that we usually don’t kill each other. So don’t let me hear you using ‚politics’
    as a swear word again.“
