“If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword’; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.” Isaiah 1:19-20 NKJV 

   Christians, we live in a culture where rebellion is uplifted. Refusing to be obedient and submissive to authority is considered good! Beloved, we are headed for destruction! We cannot rebel and refuse God. His plans are perfect, His Word contains all the answers: the answers to politics, the answers to government, the answers to how we are to live our lives and interact with each other. Please be willing, please be obedient, for that is where humility, blessing, and communion with the Lord lie. There is no other way to God but by repentance and submission.

“‘Wash yourselves,
make yourselves clean;
put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes.
Cease to do evil,
Learn to do good;
Seek justice,
Reprove the oppressor,
Defend the fatherless,
Plead for the widow.” Isaiah 1:16-17 NKJV
