The Principle Of Obedience

The greatest principle is that of obedience to God, and it always takes priority over the lesser principle of obedience to men. You can find examples of this throughout the Bible.

If they told me not to preach anymore, I’m just going to keep on preaching! They may take off my head, but I’m going to keep on preaching because God has told me to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And if that’s disobedience, so be it!

The Pharaoh in Moses’ day said that all the little boy babies were to be killed. Well, the godly midwives would not kill the little boy babies. That was disobedience. And if you work in a hospital and they’re performing an abortion, you just say, “I’m out of here.” Now it was the law in Herod’s day, but they did not do it. Daniel was told, “Daniel, you cannot pray!” But Daniel prayed.

The church is not the servant of the state. The church is not the master of the state. The church is the conscience of the state. We will be civil, but we will not be silent.

Acts 5:29 says, “Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.”

  1. What a great compact message for today…”The church is not the servant of the state. The church is not the master of the state. The church is the conscience of the state. We will be civil, but we will not be silent.” May quote you on that. Thanks for inspiring us, God bless you! 🍁

Luke 21:36 "Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man."
