In Chapter 5 we are continuing with John’s vision of heaven. He is witnessing events that unfold prior to the opening of the 7 seals. In the end of verse 1 of Chapter 4 we saw a voice calling to John saying, “Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter“. This is all considered to be in the “hereafter” or “future” from John’s point of view.

As we know from Chapter 1 Jesus is giving John a revelation of things which were, things which are and things which are to come. Along with this revelation he is being told to send a message to 7 specific Churches which were located in Asia Minor (present day turkey). These 7 messages are what makes up chapters 2 and 3. Here is a map of these Church’s historic locations..

The Book of Romans : Chapter 13

The False Doctrine Exposed, The Biblical Truth Realized.

Many of us are familiar with the words that Paul wrote to the Romans in Chapter 13 concerning governing authorities. We are continually reminded that we are “subject unto the higher powers” by Churches these days is seems. The end of verse two strikes fear into our hearts.. “and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation”. “WOW”, we think.. “I definitely don’t want damnation! Thats bad!”. So we fall in line, and do as we are told. But wait.. is the WHOLE message being explained?

My goal in this post is to show to you that this is a classic misinterpretation of an entire chapter, and thus becomes 2 verses that are used to teach a false doctrine in an attempt to pacify the people. We must remember when dealing with Scripture it’s imperative to take a look at It in context of the rest of the passage.

What most don’t realize is that in this same chapter that Paul seemingly limits civil authority, he also provides attributes as to what constitutes a Biblical “higher power”. In other words: This Chapter should not only serve as guidance for the people being governed, but for the governing body as well. If we don’t hold our governing authority accountable to the Word then we suffer the consequences. It would end up looking a lot like the Babylonian exile in the Old Testament, or like the Holocaust in the 1940s. As we all know: history has a tendency to repeat itself. Let me begin with the first few verses so that we can break down this paradigm that I believe has kept us believers silent for so many years. Lets take a look.. Continue reading
