God has delegated governmental authority to humans.
Yes, it’s delegated, not autonomous. Some carry out this assignment with honor. Others abuse the authority, thinking it’s theirs, and use it to subject people to varying levels of oppression, harassment, and tyranny.
One day the delegation of authority to human governments will be rescinded.
Then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to God the Father, when He abolishes all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign until He puts all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy to be abolished is death. For God has put everything under His feet. – I Cor. 15:24-27
That day will be glorious beyond imagination. His rule will be perfect. Self-centered human “rulers” will no longer have a word to wage or a regulation to write.
Amen. So be it. And similar exclamations.
I am ready for that benevolent King of all kings to rule the nations with His Iron Scepter.
