What The Bible Says
Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice
The Apostle Peter addresses “strangers and pilgrims” of Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, who lived in a vile upside down world under the vile Emperor Nero, and tells them to “submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to...” Nero himself, or one of his governors! (1Peter 1:1,2:11,13). And submit yourselves to these vile tyrants as you would “unto them that are sent by the Lord for the punishment of evildoers”, i.e. submit just as you would unto a good and just governor(vr.14). There is a lot in Peter's first letter that needs to sink into believers walking into this first year under a fraudulently elected leftist regime, “For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men”(vr.15). In Upstate New York, from the White House in DC to Albany NY, right down to county officials who board up churches, the ignorance of foolish men is on full display this year. Thankfully God continues through the pen of Peter, “For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?”(3:12-13). Remember Peter's target audience, those strangers and pilgrims, that “chosen generation”, that “peculiar people”, were being thrown to the lions and God says, “Who is he that will harm you?”... “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.” In answered prayer our mini-tyrant governor, will soon be gone,... but ignorant and foolish will install another. God's advice for a Christians is still “submit”, and do John 2021 in year 2021.
