I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.(1Ti 2:1-2)
We today are suffering as a matter of ignoring this very vital piece of advice given to us in the book of Timothy. Whether the Klu Klux Klan’s men here or the ISIS (your foreign KKK) leaders abroad terror is destined to come where we have failed to follow the instructions of Yah. Yah knew what man left to himself would lead to. Men at war produces restlessness at home, when there is no peace at home then everyone in that area suffers.
Where the true Elohim is not embraced, no true peace can occur, since the peace he leaves with us, is not as the world gives peace but only that peace which comes from Yahushah the one who died for us has given. Yahushah gives us the reassurance that regardless of what is going on in the world if we have his peace that we need not be afraid nor should our heart be troubled. (John 14:27) Unless we address the terrorists that are running rampant in our nation we will not be in a position to address the same issues taking place over there. As scripture puts it we need to first get the mote out of our own eye, so that we can see clearly to get the beam out of our brother’s eye. (Matt. 7:3-5) I know we don’t like to hear it and many think that this subject creates division, but we can’t expect change to occur in any nation unless we deal with reality, not simply sweep it under the rug.
There is a time to pray, but after we pray what are we doing with the answer that Yah gives us? To pray without a consideration of obeying the answer that comes produces confusion not direction. It is important we understand what we see written here in Timothy and women let’s not get sensitive over the issue because it has nothing to do with men being more valuable to God or anything else. It has everything to do with the fact that wars are not started by women, unrest in a nation doesn’t start with us, we are just the bystanders who are infected by it. If we were the catalyst both scripture and what we see in our world today would not consist of women and children being spared in war while men being killed but rather women, children, and men being killed. Granted there were nations so wicked that Yah instructed the children of Israel to wipe out men, women, children and animals. (Deut. 7:2) One can only imagine how far away from Yah a nation will have to be in order for him to require such a thing. In those nations there was nothing redeemable about anyone or any creature there, it was as it was before Noah got on the ark. Wickedness had to reach an all time high, point of no return for such an instruction to be given.
When Adam is at peace, Eve is secure. When we have righteous leadership then a nation is exalted, but when wickedness reigns it is a reproach to any people. (Prov . 14:34) A nation experiencing unrest is a clear sign of a nation that has departed from Yah. The bible tells us that Yah will make our enemies our footstool, if our enemies are having victory over us it is a clear sign that we have lost favor with the Father. (Psa. 110:1; Deut. 28:7; Deut. 28:25) Now is the time to begin fervently praying for all men everywhere, husbands, fathers, sons, brothers, kings, rulers, ministers, and the like. Pray that they will have ears to hear and eyes to see the very clear signs that the heavenly Father is revealing in this hour so that we can once again obtain the peaceable life in all godliness and honesty we once had the opportunity to enjoy.
