The PERFECT government


Hebrews 10:14

King James Version

14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever 

them that are sanctified.

I know of a perfect government.

Do you?

SPIRIT led me to one.

Observe the components:

Romans 12:4-5

King James Version

4 For as we have many members in one body, 

and all members have not the same office:

5 So we, being many, are one body in Christ, 

and every one members one of another.

Romans 12:6-8

King James Version

6 Having then gifts differing 

according to the grace that is given to us, 

whether prophecy, let us prophesy 

according to the proportion of faith;

7 Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: 

or he that teacheth, on teaching;

8 Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: 

he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; 

he that ruleth, with diligence; 

he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.

Romans 12:9-13

King James Version

9 Let love be without dissimulation. 

Abhor that which is evil; 

cleave to that which is good.

10 Be kindly affectioned 

one to another with brotherly love; 

in honour preferring one another;

11 Not slothful in business; 

fervent in spirit; 

serving the Lord;

12 Rejoicing in hope; 

patient in tribulation; 

continuing instant in prayer;

13 Distributing to the necessity of saints; 

given to hospitality.

Romans 12:14-15

King James Version

14 Bless them which persecute you: 

bless, and curse not.

15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, 

and weep with them that weep.

Romans 12:16

King James Version

16 Be of the same mind one toward another. 

Mind not high things, 

but condescend to men of low estate. 

Be not wise in your own conceits.

Romans 12:17-18

King James Version

17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. 

Provide things honest in the sight of all men.

18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, 

live peaceably with all men.

Romans 12:19-20

King James Version

19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, 

but rather give place unto wrath: 

for it is written, 

Vengeance is mine; 

I will repay, saith the Lord.

20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; 

if he thirst, give him drink: 

for in so doing thou shalt heap 

coals of fire on his head.

Romans 12:21

King James Version

21 Be not overcome of evil, 

but overcome evil with good.

That's a refreshing change, isn't it?

That, through JESUS, we can have such a perfect government.

The perfect government abides by GOD's laws.

It has GOD in it.

It has JESUS in it.

It has SPIRIT in it.

It loves people.

It cares for people.

It honors the forgotten ones.

Only then can man govern well.

Only then can man follow such a government.

Only then can a government be fair, just, and successful.

Only then can there be peace.

How, then, can church and state be separate?

Without GOD in government, we'd be lost.

What were we thinking, taking out GOD, from government?

What were we thinking, putting many other gods in it?

What were we thinking, we can govern by ourselves?

As it is, the world belongs to the fallen one.

Thus, our ONLY HOPE is in JESUS.

Who teaches us to love GOD, above all.

And to love others, as He loved us.

We must seek Him, while we can.

Our very future hinges upon it.
