The Highest Authority!

(The King of Kings!)

Godly people are to fear God, not fear man:

Deu 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.

Luk 12:5   But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

Rev 14:11 "And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast [GOVERNMENT?] and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name."

Isa 8:12   "Do not say, 'A conspiracy,' Concerning all that this people call a conspiracy, Nor be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled.
Isa 8:13   The LORD of hosts, Him you shall hallow; Let Him be your fear, And let Him be your dread.

Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

2Ti 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

1Jo 4:18  There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

Pro 28:1  The wicked flee when no one pursues, But the righteous are bold as a lion.


Are we called to be kings and priests?

Rev 1:6   and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

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


Who has authority over all the earth?

1Pe 3:21  There is also an antitype which now saves us -- baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,
1Pe 3:22  who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, angels and authorities and powers having been made subject to Him.

Rev 1:5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood,

Daniel 4:17 " 'The decision is announced by messengers, the holy ones declare the verdict, so that the living may know that the Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets over them the lowliest of men.'

Mat 28:18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

Heaven and on earth?

Dan 2:37 "You, O king, are a King of kings. For the God of heaven has given you a kingdom, power, strength, and glory

What authority has been given to us as His children?

2Cr 10:8 For even if I should boast somewhat more about our authority, which the Lord gave us for edification and not for your destruction, I shall not be ashamed -- 
2Cr 10:9  lest I seem to terrify you by letters.

2Cr 10:14  For we are not overextending ourselves (as though our authority did not extend to you), for it was to you that we came with the gospel of Christ;

1Cr 9:18  What is my reward then? That when I preach the gospel, I may present the gospel of Christ without charge, that I may not abuse my authority in the gospel.

Luk 9:1 Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases.

Jhn 7:17 "If anyone wills to do His will, he shall know concerning the doctrine, whether it is from God or whether I speak on My own authority.

Jhn 12:49 "For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak.

Act 9:14 "And here he has authority from the chief priests to bind all who call on Your name."

2Pe 2:7 and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked
2Pe 2:8 (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds--
2Pe 2:9 then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment
2Pe 2:10 and especially those who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil of dignitaries,
2Pe 2:11 whereas angels, who are greater in power and might, do not bring a reviling accusation against them before the Lord.

So how did we end up with Kings of the earth to rule over us?

Neh 9:17 They refused to obey, And they were not mindful of Your wonders That You did among them. But they hardened their necks, And in their rebellion They appointed a leader To return to their bondage. But You are God, Ready to pardon, Gracious and merciful, Slow to anger, Abundant in kindness, And did not forsake them.

Ezr 5:12 "But because our fathers provoked the God of heaven to wrath, He gave them into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, the Chaldean, who destroyed this temple and carried the people away to Babylon.

1Sa 8:10 So Samuel told all the words of the LORD to the people who asked him for a king.
1Sa 8:11 And he said, "This will be the behavior of the king who will reign over you: He will take your sons and appoint them for his own chariots and to be his horsemen, and some will run before his chariots.
1Sa 8:12 "He will appoint captains over his thousands and captains over his fifties, will set some to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and some to make his weapons of war and equipment for his chariots.
1Sa 8:13 "He will take your daughters to be perfumers, cooks, and bakers.
1Sa 8:14 "And he will take the best of your fields, your vineyards, and your olive groves, and give them to his servants.
1Sa 8:15 "He will take a tenth of your grain and your vintage, and give it to his officers and servants.
1Sa 8:16 "And he will take your male servants, your female servants, your finest young men, and your donkeys, and put them to his work.
1Sa 8:17 "He will take a tenth of your sheep. And you will be his servants.
1Sa 8:18 "And you will cry out in that day because of your king whom you have chosen for yourselves, and the LORD will not hear you in that day."
1Sa 8:19 Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, "No, but we will have a king over us,
1Sa 8:20 "that we also may be like all the nations, and that our king may judge us and go out before us and fight our battles."

What did they refuse to obey?  Were they lazy?  Fearful?  Where they afraid a Battle?

How ought we respond to Kings of the Earth who are sent by God to punish disobedient people?

Dan 3:14 Nebuchadnezzar spoke, saying to them, "Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the gold image which I have set up?

Dan 3:16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego answered and said to the king, "O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter.

Dan 3:28 Nebuchadnezzar spoke, saying, "Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, who sent His Angel and delivered His servants who trusted in Him, and they have frustrated the king's word, and yielded their bodies, that they should not serve nor worship any god except their own God!

What would have happened to Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego if they had bowed to the authority of Nebuchadnezzar the king?

Would God have saved them?

What about future Governments?

Pro 29:2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.

Romans 13:1 Let every person be in subjection to the governing authorities [Christ?] [Christ's people?] [Liberty?].

Rev 13:5 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months.

Rev 13:14  And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.
Rev 13:15  He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.
Rev 13:16  He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads,
Rev 13:17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Rev 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

Rev 17:12  "The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast.

Are we supposed to obey this authority, or do the saints war against it?

Rev 17:14 "These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful."

Daniel 7:21 As I watched, this horn was waging war against the holy people and defeating them,

Rev 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and [I saw] the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received [his] mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Why are these Martyrs seemed to be blessed more than the ones who did not contend for the faith?

Rev 20:6 Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.

What does Jesus say will happen to this kind of authority, and all other kings?

Rev 17:13 "These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast.

Rev 20:10 And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

What about taxes?

Luk 23:2 And they began to accuse Him, saying, "We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to pay taxes to Caesar, saying that He Himself is Christ, a King."
Luk 23:3 Then Pilate asked Him, saying, "Are You the King of the Jews?" He answered him and said, "It is as you say."
Luk 23:4 So Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowd, "I find no fault in this Man.

Mat 22:17 "Tell us, therefore, what do You think? Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?"

Mat 22:21 They said to Him, "Caesar's." And He said to them, "Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's."

What belongs to Caesar?

Hbr 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Exodus 20:15  You shall not steal.

What belongs to God?

Haggai 2:8 All silver and gold belong to me, [says the Lord God]

Psalm 24:1 The earth is the LORD's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

Pro 3:9 Honor the LORD with your possessions, And with the firstfruits of all your increase;

Is tax money tainted or cursed?

Psalms 68:30 (AMP) Rebuke the wild beasts dwelling among the reeds [in Egypt], the herd of bulls (the leaders) with the calves of the peoples; trample underfoot those who lust for tribute money; scatter the peoples who delight in war.

Proverbs 1:18 These men lie in wait for their own blood; they ambush only themselves!
19 Such are the paths of all who go after ill-gotten gain; it takes away the life of those who get it.

Do we trust the Lord?

Hbr 10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

Jhn 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

Ezr 7:24 Also we certify you, that touching any of the priests and Levites, singers, porters, Nethinims, or ministers of this house of God, it shall not be lawful to impose toll, tribute, or custom, upon them.

Mar 2:16  And when the scribes and Pharisees saw Him eating with the tax collectors and sinners, they said to His disciples, "How is it that He eats and drinks with tax collectors and sinners?"
Mar 2:17 When Jesus heard [it], he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Why is a tax collector considered in need of repentance along with sinners?

Mat 18:17 "And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector.

Luk 18:10 "Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.
Luk 18:11 "The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, 'God, I thank You that I am not like other men--extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector.
Luk 18:12 'I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess.'
Luk 18:13 "And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, 'God, be merciful to me a sinner!'
Luk 18:14 "I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."

Mat 17:24  And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute [money] came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute?
Mat 17:25  He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers?

Did Peter answer for Jesus and assume he knew the answer?

Mat 17:26  Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free.

Who's Children are we?

Rom 8:16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,

Mat 17:27  Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.

Luk 3:11  He answereth and saith unto them, He that hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none; and he that hath meat, let him do likewise.
Luk 3:12  Then came also publicans to be baptized, and said unto him, Master, what shall we do?
Luk 3:13  And he said unto them, Exact no more than that which is appointed you.
Luk 3:14  And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse [any] falsely; and be content with your wages.

Luk 23:1 Then the whole multitude of them arose and led Him to Pilate.
Luk 23:2 And they began to accuse Him, saying, "We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to pay taxes to Caesar, saying that He Himself is Christ, a King."
Luk 23:3 Then Pilate asked Him, saying, "Are You the King of the Jews?" He answered him and said, "It is as you say."
Luk 23:4 So Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowd, "I find no fault in this Man."

What about the free and the slave?

1Cr 7:21 Were you called while a slave? Do not be concerned about it; but if you can be made free, rather use it.

Eph 6:8 knowing that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord, whether he is a slave or free.

1 Corinthians 7:23  You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of human beings.

What about Honor?

Psa 104:1 BLESS the LORD, O my soul! O LORD my God, You are very great: You are clothed with honor and majesty,

Lev 19:15 'You shall do no injustice in judgment. You shall not be partial to the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty. In righteousness you shall judge your neighbor.

Deu 26:19 "and that He will set you high above all nations which He has made, in praise, in name, and in honor, and that you may be a holy people to the LORD your God, just as He has spoken."

Psa 149:9 To execute on them the written judgment-- This honor have all His saints. Praise the LORD!

1Pe 2:17 Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.

How do we honor to the kings of the earth?

Est 4:13 And Mordecai told them to answer Esther: "Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king's palace any more than all the other Jews.
Est 4:14 "For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father's house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?"

Proverbs 22:29
Do you see a man skilled in his work? He will serve before kings; he will not serve before obscure men.

Matthew 10:
17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
18 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.
19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.
20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

2 Timothy 3:12 (NIV)
In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,

Mark 10:29 And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's,
Mark 10:30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.

1Ti 6:17 Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.
1Ti 6:18 Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share,
1Ti 6:19 storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
1Ti 6:20 O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge--
1Ti 6:21 by professing it some have strayed concerning the faith. Grace be with you. Amen.

Act 15:29 that you abstain from things offered to idols, from blood, from things strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well. Farewell.
