FROM A STUDY ON THE ROYAL LAW OF LIBERTY
Deuteronomy 10:17 For the LORD your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward:
He rules above the “gods”. Interesting. Who is that? –Means rulers; and can mean the spiritual rulers too, in the unseen realm that He has set up to watch over us.
If we want to keep the 10 commandments, have we kept the first one? Has anyone?
Deuteronomy 5:7 Thou shalt have none other gods before me.
Are we really letting the Lord our God be the top one? If we take final orders from anyone else on this planet, including all “heads of state”, pastors, bosses, life partners and spouses, or authorities at all, when God is saying something else, we are disobeying this commandment.
God is to be the ruler, and He makes the rules. We check with Him for the final say in any matter. Now more so than ever, since the old law itself was given the death penalty by God, and Jesus was given the job of ‘Righteous Judge’ who shows mercy and forgives those “that love much”.
2Timothy 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
Luke 7:47 Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much:
In the “angel chapters” as I term Hebrews 12-13, there is a verse that I think has been used wrongly in some or many situations. In context it is talking about spiritual communication, not humans ruling. It was talking about angels, and praise, and communicating with the Lord, and prayer, receiving the Lord’s Words in prophecy and remembering “them that have the rule over you.”
To my knowledge, it is talking about the “gods”, the Heavenly servants of the Lord. It defines what it means by saying the “rulers” are the ones that pass on the Word to us. It wasn’t talking about a visiting apostle. They didn’t rule over each other. For example, it said in that chapter that Timothy was just released from prison. He would have told them the Word, but he wasn’t there. So who is ruling, there with them, but can’t be seen—as they need to make an effort to “REMEMBER” them? It would have to be the spiritual prophets, angelic beings that pass on messages, and who have charge over us.
Hebrews 13:7 Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.
Hebrews 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.
So I believe these verses aren’t to be used to say you have to submit to a human ruler that has set themselves up above God’s Word and His will for you. You are to listen to your spiritual rulers or angels that are passing on the fresh Word of God for you to obey that day. Those who are given the “charge” over you, to “keep you”, to guard and to make you behave.
Why? So they can give the Lord a good and happy report that you have been learning your lessons, yielding to the Lord’s will and listening to His Word. If they have to give a bad report, you and they will have unhappy results. If you and the angelic escort team work well together and do your mission, then all can rejoice. (John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress Book 2 brings out this point clearly.)
PTFCOD #2 “Our Spirit Helpers”: You say, “But why do we need these spirit helpers when we have You? You’re all-powerful and omnipresent, so why is it so important that we release the help of these spirit helpers?” It is because in the Last Days you will work hand in hand with My spirit helpers. They will work with you and teach you to do great things. They will guide you and help you to learn to fight the battles of the Endtime using the weapons of the Spirit and the ways of My Spirit. They are part of My Heavenly army–part of the workings and ways of My Spirit. They are part of Me! When you use their strength and their help, you are using My strength and My help. I will use them to teach you and prepare you for your ministry in the days to come, and you will begin to learn to work side by side with those of the spirit world who are sent to help you. (End of message from Jesus.)
