What is the Role of a King?

In light of the decision to destroy the liberty of over 80 million Americans with the recent executive order from that wicked tyrant Joe Biden, I believe it is appropriate and necessary to discuss what the role of a ruler is according to God’s Word. The executive order forces private business owners to force upon their employees the wicked vaccine, which was designed from human child sacrifice.

Throughout this lesson, as we read the scripture from God’s Word, ask yourself these questions:

Do our leaders fulfill the responsibilities set forth for them according to the Bible?

Should we support them in both wise and foolish decisions?

What can we do to help our leaders?

Our kings today may have changed their names to governor or president, but they are still the rulers of the people and they are accountable to God as much as anyone else. 

However, kings occupy a special place among the people, and God uses them to carry out his will and administer justice. 

We read of such responsibilities as these in:

Romans 13:4

We read in this verse that God has made rulers the ministers to execute wrath upon all that do evil. The rulers are ordained by God, and are a representative of the ordinances, or laws, of God:

Romans 13:1-3

The law of God is good, and so rulers must obey that which is good and not do that which is evil:

Proverbs 16:12

This brings the main problem into focus; kings do not believe any longer that they have been put where they are to carry out the will of God, although that is what they are for as we read in previous scripture, but also read here:

Proverbs 21:1

Now we will go through some common problems that occur in our rulers:

Proverbs 20:8

A king is to sit on the throne of judgement, not the throne of pandering. The king that panders to the wicked crowd does not scatter the wicked, he brings the wicked to himself.

Proverbs 20:28

A king that does not dwell in truth will have a weak throne and a weak rule and he will not be preserved. Remember 

Psalm 75:6-7

Proverbs 25:2 

A king must search out a matter, or else he is without honor. Our kings do not search for the right answer for the people, but will usually go with a crowd

Proverbs 25:5

Our rulers have been surrounding themselves with the wicked, so their thrones have been established in wickedness. 

This is mostly because the wicked reward the king in ways he cannot be rewarded if he walked with the right people; for filthy lucre and for money. Look at:

Proverbs 29:4

Proverbs 29:14

As we have read, the law of the land should be the law of God. A king’s responsibility is to uphold the law of the Lord. If the king has failed to make an effort in this direction he will be breaking the commandment and ordinances of God. If the king judgeth rightly, then he will establish the land and it will prosper.

A nation is seen for its people, so how the king rules the people matters very greatly.

Psalm 9:17

David was a king that God said was a man after his own heart. As an example for all kings that would come after him, he always showed forth God’s marvelous works. We read of his government spending here:

2 Samuel 24:18-25

But we can see a king recorded in God’s Word that did not care for the spiritual health or physical condition of his people. Nebuchadnezzar is shown here:

Daniel 4:19-27

And from what we’ve read about the king’s responsibility, Nebuchadnezzar was sorely lacking, for kings are to give God glory, for by God king’s reign:

Proverbs 8:15

The duty of the people is also set forth. As we read in Daniel rebuke and reproof is appropriate. 

We are also to fear the king:

Proverbs 24:21

As we read in Romans, but also to honor the king as we read in 1 Peter 2:17, for he is a king.

If the king is more revered to you than God is, then the king has become your god. We need to openly rebuke those that do evil 

Ephesians 5:11

and of course pray for them to be saved

Luke 6:28

We need to pray for our president to start acting like the king God let him be, and pray that our he starts to follow the law of God. And pray for salvation for him, and everyone of our other leaders. 

Let us pray for those who rule over us that their hearts may be turn to God, so our land could be heal, and we may have a peaceable and quiet life. Amen
