  1. And God is not power, God is Love, equal to all.

    “…for He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.”

    God has done everything and given man freedom, “in His own image and likeness” and will never break His word.

    But all processes on Earth in the material world are subject to management, and for this someone must set goals and direct their actions and the actions of people to achieve this goal.

    It is better to call these people managers, but the word power has become fixed, since not everyone in power is a manager, unfortunately.

    And even though people shout that we want freedom, but along with freedom, responsibility is acquired and it is personal… it is scary and therefore it is better to be subordinate and not take responsibility.

    This is how people organize their own power over themselves.

    Although then they run and shout-we want freedom… but this is only a cry for the most part.

  2. Because people don't like God. You can't argue with God. God said do not commit adultery, but man loves to do it. And the government itself likes to do this, a sinful person has a lot in common with the sinful government.

  3. 1:5″…God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all”(The Epistle of John).
    If this Light enters our world, it will burn it. Therefore, in order to influence people, God needs intermediaries. “All power is from God”, “every nation is worthy of its ruler”. God would be happy to send the best rulers, but he has to work with the material that is on Earth.

  4. How is this why?

    Someone must” in the name of God “force parasites to work, stupid people to study, rich people to share with the poor, evil people to “improve for the good”, etc. Or do you think that all this should be done “personally” by God?

    Somehow such classes are “too small” or something for His “high status”.

    But if “seriously”, then God has already done everything for a person, judging by what is written in religious texts (and He created a beautiful world, and gave all the necessary instructions on how to live correctly, and even provided incentives and punishments for the disobedient). But a person does not want to “obey” God voluntarily, alas, and therefore power is needed.

    And if it is reasonable to look at the question, then power is needed not by God (the almighty), but by people (even those who are powerless to “control” themselves), which, by the way, the apostle directly writes about the future (when people learn to” control themselves ” at last):”And then the end, when He will deliver up the Kingdom to God and the Father, when He will abolish all principalities and all authority and power.”

  5. Precisely because, in addition to God, there exists and reigns on earth, contrary to common sense, “eternal and unkillable”, unbreakable human stupidity.
    To curb its chaotic thirst, “saw all the knots” and “stick them in all the wheels” on its life path, to order it with rules, decrees and laws, the authorities are called upon .
    The only trouble is that the same “stupidity”, in its simplicity, turning everything “upside down” sincerely imagines itself capable of ruling and giving instructions for everyone and for everything.
    And as long as common sense does not prevail in a person, God is “neither a helper nor a decree”for him

  6. God considered Adam his son, apparently he wanted family relations, where the power of the parent is in seniority. The story goes that even when the neighboring nations were ruled by kings, His people Israel was ruled by judges in His name. And of the kings of Israel, when they appeared, it is said that they sat in Jerusalem on the throne of God. In Romans 13, the Apostle Paul explained the benefits of government. Because there are many wicked people.

    The authorities do not directly participate in God's plans, they are called to keep order so that there is no anarchy.

    100 years ago, God established one necessary authority – the “Kingdom of Heaven” – and appointed His Son, Jesus Christ, as King. It is this very Kingdom that we must ask for in the “Our Father” prayer. It will bring complete order to the earth, destroy all the works of the Devil, only then will the will of God be the same on earth as in heaven.

  7. If all people always acted according to God's commandments, then power would not be needed. But there are always criminals who prevent normal people from living. That's what the authorities should fight against. Unfortunately, the authorities often assume other functions.

  8. Any living organism, including the human individual and society, can be represented as a system consisting of four subsystems within the framework of a systematic approach.

    The first is the subsystem of freedom from environmental influence (OS),

    The second is the freedom subsystem for interacting with the OS.

    The third is a subsystem for managing the regulation of multidirectional freedoms.

    Fourth, the subsystem of reproduction and reproduction of the System.

    The efficiency of the third subsystem ensures homeostasis of the System with the OS.

    God is not needed in this matter. “Don't take God's name in vain.”

  10. It can be difficult to show respect for the authorities. We live in a time when the authorities are less respected than ever before. However, the Bible says that we need to respect those who have authority over us (Proverbs 24: 21).Why does God allow this? Satan's career as ruler of the world began in Eden, when he publicly accused God of lying and unfairly exercising His sovereignty (Genesis 3: 1-6). Adam and Eve followed Satan and became disobedient to God. God could then justly execute Satan along with his two followers (Genesis 2: 16, 17). But Satan's words were really a personal challenge to the Creator. So God, in His wisdom, allowed Satan to live for a while longer and allowed Adam and Eve to have children before they died. In this way, God provided time and opportunity for Satan's defiant claim to be refuted (Genesis 3:15-19). The controversial issues raised in Eden will soon be resolved. Today, there is a lot of evidence that everything predicted will be fulfilled at the appointed time. In the entire history of the human race, it has never been threatened with extinction. And only God knows the way out of this situation (Isaiah 45: 21).

  11. Power is an instrument that exists even in God's Kingdom – there is a Hierarchy in Heaven, some are entrusted with more power, some with less (Archangels, Archangelics, Angels, Seraphim, Cherubim, ministering spirits, etc.) This instrument serves to spread God's will through the Structure He has created throughout His Kingdom.

    This is exactly what happens on earth, except that the will of the devil, the will of man, is spread here and all this happens under the complete control of the will of God, and therefore the power structures on earth have a more complex order and organization, which is not so easy to understand. All of this ultimately serves God's will and purpose

    16 For by him were created all that is in the heavens and all that is on the earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, dominions, principalities, or powers; all things were created by him and for him;

    (Colossians 1: 16)
