If you are a true Christian your government is not of this world. John 17:14-17; 18:36-37. Moreover, if you are a true Christian you possess the capability to discern what form of government you desire to live under. You can transform that desire into reality via prayer, and obedience to God’s laws. Scripture states, “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God. Whosoever therefore resist the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves greater damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? Do that which is good and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for the good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid: for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. Wherefore, ye needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. Romans 13:1-5. This scriptural passage refers to secular authorities.
The following reference in scripture teaches us God governs all, and He gives power to whomever He desires. No one gets power without His approval, and no government can stand without His permission. We should remember that this world (with the express permission of God) is currently under Gentile rulership. The first international superpower to stand in the Gentile era of rule was formally a province of Assyria: Until they overthrew their masters in 608 B.C., and established their own empire. Jeremiah 27.
