JD: I have read in the book of Daniel, Daniel chapter 10 where it talks about political leaders who have been influenced by satan and made some decisions that actually went against God’s will. I know God can put in the hearts and minds of political leaders to make the right decisions but the devil has access to those minds. Would it not be a very important thing for we as Christians to pray for these leaders in higher authority that they not be influenced by the devil and try to stop the devil in his tracks?
SR: Oh I think that is absolutely true. When I pray as you do when we teach about civil authority the purposes of civil authority is to enact justice which hinges on truth. So you praise those who do well. The government is to do that for those who do that which is according to ultimately God’s law and to punish those who break God’s law. If your civil law mirrors which our Constitution does Biblical law then everything works together.
So I pray that those who are in office now and wherever they are that they would understand their purpose before God because they will all give an account to God. How they deal on that purpose that God sanction I pray that they would understand and seek the truth. That they would make their votes and decisions based on truth. If they do then you have justice. If they reject that then you have injustice. So when we pray for truth and pursuing of truth we’re praying for God’s will and we are praying against the evil one who is the father of lies. The Scripture tells us to pray for those in authority so that we can live a quiet and peaceable life and that’s only possible if we base it on the truth and God’s word.
JD: Sam Rohrer explaining the battle between God and the devil for the minds of political leaders in this world.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
Sam Rohrer a former political leader serving as a State Senator for over 20 years in the Pennsylvania State Senate can report from experience how any politician is influenced by God or satan. The Bible reveals that to be the case as recorded in Daniel 10:13 & 20. The apostle Paul also exhorted us to put on the whole armor of God, Ephesians 6:13 because we will face a battle, that’s Ephesians 6:12. Paul also exhorted us to pray for those in higher authority because first of all it’s God’s will, I Timothy 2:1-4. As we approach the future we must pray.
