The ancient Jews were given Saul, then David then Solomon as their Kings - and these were all ordained by God. However, the existence of these Kings was not entirely up to God, but mainly due to man. Prior to the Kings, the Jews had God Himself as their King, and His will was communicated through prophets such as Moses and Samuel- the so called Judges. In effect the Jews abandoned God as their King - preferring a weak human - tempted by the glory and splendor of the Kings of other nations. God warned the Jews that a human King would be a tyrant, and of all the ill effects this would bring, but they were persistent in their stubbornness, and so God gave them what they wished for - I guess God never desired to be an unwanted leader. The ill-effects of an Earthly king soon became apparent. Just ask Uriah.
So now in these End-Times we are given what we were promised - as people turn away from God - as more and more reject God not just as their worldly leader, but also as their spiritual and moral leader: "I will make boys their officials; mere children will govern them. People will oppress each other -- man against man, neighbor against neighbor. The young will rise up against the old, the base against the honorable." (Isa.3:4-5 NIV).
So what is a government or a state? It is a set of structures and laws - such as a constitution - that is established by force or by common acceptance. In Australia the constitution was established by both means - common acceptance amongst the immigrants from Europe and by force for the Indigenous nations, who previously had their own leadership structures and laws.
So as governments globally begin to fail- to whom do we owe our allegiance? To the Trumps of the world? Would we owe allegiance to Hitler if he was our leader?
I would suggest the time is coming when we will be able to opt for the Lord to be our leader - not just our spiritual leader, but also our worldly leader - as He led the ancient Jews. Now I am not suggesting that we will have a 'heaven on Earth' necessarily, just that our society as a whole - or perhaps just that part that elects to join His nation - will be able to live under His leadership and guidance. That does not mean that humans - like angels - will never do anything wrong - it just means that when their transgressions are dealt with it is with Gods' justice, mercy and wisdom, not man's.
Thus given the state of world, and the times we evidently live in, let me please declare now my allegiance to God above all other national and state constructs. Let me elect Him as my leader, and thus from this day forth place myself under His protection and rule as the one to whom I pledge my loyalty and allegiance above all others. Thus I ask to become a citizen of the "New Jerusalem" with God Himself as my King.
