You know, I daresay that there are very few countries left
in the world today, if in fact there are any, where at least
some of the people have not heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ
at some point in their life. Our beliefs are so well known,
and have been so widely propagated, by so many different
means, that it is next to impossible to escape hearing about
them altogether. No country is so repressive, or so tightly
controlled, that it can block out all of the Light. I think
that there are at least a few small pinholes where the Light
of the Gospel has been able to penetrate into their world of
spiritual darkness, no matter how hard their evil leaders
have tried to block it out; and as I explain in 'Are You A
Burning Ember For The Lord?', that is all that is required
to ignite the spiritual fire.

In like manner, I seriously doubt that there are very many
leaders left in the world today, if any, who have not heard
the Good News of Salvation. As I was writing this series,
the thought occurred to me how many government officials
have been exposed to our Western culture. In some cases,
this has been due to their diplomatic missions to the West,
or else due to Western government officials visiting their
country. In other instances, certain world leaders have
received several years of military training or schooling in
the West, such as in Great Britain, or else in the United
States of America. Others have come to the West for medical
treatment. All of this presents opportunities for them to be
exposed to our Christian heritage to varying degrees. Even
if they just happen to see a church building during a tour,
it is still a reminder of our Christian beliefs.

To take this a step further, even if a certain leader has
never ever left his own country, Christian missionaries, and
Christian shortwave radio programs, have penetrated the vast
majority of the world's nations. In addition to this, many
Christians serve as English teachers in foreign countries,
and all world leaders must surely keep a personal eye on
international news and world developments in order to decide
their national and international policies. Throughout all of
this, they are exposed to some form of Christianity. As I
point out in other articles, even if it were possible to
somehow miss the Christian witness through these various
opportunities, no one can possibly miss the witness that God
gives them directly, the minute that they walk outside and
look at His wonderful natural Creation. As the Apostle Paul

"For the invisible things of him from the creation of the
world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that
are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they
are without excuse:" Romans 1:20, KJV

In short then, I believe that both the world's leaders, and
the people they govern, are all accountable to God. As Paul
states, we are living in a world without excuse. It is truly
sad then, when these powerful leaders make such a wrong
choice by rejecting the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Think of how
much good they could do if they were to accept the Lord into
their lives. They could influence their entire nation in a
positive way. They could be extremely instrumental in the
Salvation of their entire country, and the Lord would surely
bless them for it. I am reminded of the wonderful story of
the Ethiopian eunuch found in Acts chapter eight:

"And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise,
and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from
Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert. And he arose and went:
and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority
under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of
all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,
Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the
prophet. Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join
thyself to this chariot. And Philip ran thither to him, and
heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest
thou what thou readest? And he said, How can I, except some
man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would
come up and sit with him. The place of the scripture which
he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter;
and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not
his mouth: In his humiliation his judgment was taken away:
and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken
from the earth. And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I
pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or
of some other man? Then Philip opened his mouth, and began
at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus. And as
they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and
the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to
be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all
thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I
believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. And he
commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down
both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he
baptized him. And when they were come up out of the water,
the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch
saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing."
Acts 8:26-39, KJV

As I relate in other articles, it is believed by some Bible
scholars, that it was due in part to this man's faithfulness
to return to his native land, and to witness to the royal
court of the Ethiopian Queen Candace, that Ethiopia became
one of the first Christianized nations in Africa. In His
Divine Wisdom, the Lord made this eunuch a steward of His
Word, and this man was found faithful. As Paul wrote:

"Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found
faithful." 1 Corinthians 4:2, KJV

On the other hand, we have the sad, sad case of foolish King
Agrippa, also found in the Book of Acts. We are all familiar
with the sad lament 'If I only had...'. In this case, after
Paul had faithfully witnessed to this Jewish king, we find
this worldly leader responding in the following manner:

"Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to
be a Christian." Acts 26:28, KJV

What a tragedy, and what a disappointment to the Lord! If I
may be so bold, what the king was really saying to Paul was
'Almost Paul, but not quite. You've almost convinced me to
accept your Jesus and become a Christian, but I just can't
do it. You have delivered one powerful testimony here today,
but this worldly position of power and wealth is just too
difficult for me to give up'. Remember again what I stated
earlier in this series. Why did Jesus say that we would be
made to appear before kings and other men in positions of
authority? In order to be a testimony against them. You see,
when they reject our witness, they condemn themselves. We
don't even have to do it for them. All we have to do is to
be faithful to deliver the message, and then they are the
ones who choose Life or death; and this applies to every
single person to whom we witness. In the case of Agrippa,
and other men like him, you may recall that Jesus also said
the following in the Gospels:

"Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth
and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and
steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where
neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not
break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there
will your heart be also." Matthew 6:19-21, KJV

"...Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly
enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you,
It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle,
than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God."
Matthew 19:23,24, KJV

"...Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches
to enter into the kingdom of God!" Mark 10:24b, KJV

As I point out in other articles, in their Epistles, Paul
and James also tell us how not only will the rich experience
problems in this life due to their accumulated wealth, but
that their very same wealth, which is often obtained by less
than honourable means, will actually serve as a testimony
against them in the Day of Judgment:

"For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while
some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and
pierced themselves through with many sorrows."
1 Timothy 6:10, KJV

"Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries
that shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted, and
your garments are motheaten. Your gold and silver is
cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against
you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have
heaped treasure together for the last days. Behold, the hire
of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is
of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them
which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of
sabaoth. Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been
wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of
slaughter. Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he
doth not resist you. Be patient therefore, brethren, unto
the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for
the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for
it, until he receive the early and latter rain."
James 5:1-7, KJV

Unless I am mistaken, this king in Acts chapter eight was
Herod Agrippa II, whose father, known as Agrippa I, or Herod
Antipas, was eaten up by worms, as I mentioned in part one.
Antipas had already angered the Lord by severely persecuting
the Church; which included beheading James, and imprisoning
Peter and other Disciples. When Antipas failed to give the
Lord the credit for his position of Earthly power, just like
foolish King Nebuchadnezzar in the Old Testament, who was
also severely humbled by the Lord, apparently God felt that
he had gone too far. The Scriptures make it very clear that
no Earthly leader can rise to power, unless God permits him
to, in order to accomplish His own Divine Purposes. Please
consider the following verses:

"Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck.
For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the
west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he putteth
down one, and setteth up another." (Psalms 75:5-7)

"Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for
ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: And he changeth
the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up
kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them
that know understanding:" (Daniel 2:20-21)

"This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the
demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the
living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of
men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up
over it the basest of men." (Daniel 4:17)

"The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers
of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will."
(Proverbs 21:1)

"For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness
is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the
word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being
king. And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have
transgressed the commandment of the LORD, and thy words:
because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice. Now
therefore, I pray thee, pardon my sin, and turn again with
me, that I may worship the LORD. And Samuel said unto Saul,
I will not return with thee: for thou hast rejected the word
of the LORD, and the LORD hath rejected thee from being king
over Israel." (1 Samuel 15:23-26)

What may be difficult for some of you to understand, is that
the Scriptures plainly tell us that God will purposely raise
up certain leaders to be His vessels of wrath. As I point
out in other articles, such as in the series 'The Fruits Of
Disobedience' and 'The Children Of God And Politics', this
was surely the case with Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar, who
served as the Lord's scourge against apostate Israel. If you
read the Old Testament carefully, you will find a number of
examples where the Lord, speaking through the mouths of His
Prophets, tells the rebellious nation of Israel, that He is
going to send a certain king and nation upon them, in order
to punish them for their sins. Once they accomplish their
purpose, the Lord then destroys them as well through their
enemies. In his Epistle to the Romans, Paul explains the
case of the Egyptian pharaoh who enslaved the descendants
of Jacob:

"For the scripture saith unto Pharaoh, Even for this same
purpose have I raised thee up, that I might shew my power in
thee, and that my name might be declared throughout all the
earth. Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy,
and whom he will he hardeneth. Thou wilt say then unto me,
Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will?
Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God?
Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast
thou made me thus? Hath not the potter power over the clay,
of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another
unto dishonour? What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and
to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the
vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: And that he might
make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy,
which he had afore prepared unto glory,"
Romans 9:17-23, KJV

In light of all of this revelatory information, you may be
interested in reading my article 'The Holocaust: Did God
Make A Mistake?'. I present some challenging Scriptural
views which you will not often hear within the churches of
organized religion.

Returning to Paul's exhortation to pray for worldly rulers,
we need to realize that at the time that he wrote those
lines in his letter to Timothy, Christianity was still very
young, and just getting underway; and it needed all of the
help that it could get, particularly from worldly rulers and
others in positions of authority, who could facilitate the
opening up of their countries to the Gospel. While it was
definitely no easy task to take this strange new doctrine of
the resurrection from the dead to the unbelieving Jews, and
then to the Gentiles as well, we do know that there were a
lot of open hearts which were receptive to the Gospel of
Jesus Christ; even amongst the royalty in Caesar's own
household, as I stated a moment ago. We find some evidence
of Paul's success in the following verse found at the end of
his Epistle to the brethren at Philippi:

"All the saints salute you, chiefly they that are of
Caesar's household." Philippians 4:22, KJV

Paul was a man driven by his vision for world evangelism,
which he had received from the Lord; and while we too should
carry this same burning desire in our hearts to reach the
lost with the message of Salvation, we must acknowledge the
fact that the tide has changed. Now that we are nearing the
end of man's current rule of this Earth, the situation has
changed dramatically. The world is turning more antichrist
by the day, and the windows of witnessing opportunities are
closing. Reception has in large part been replaced by clear
rejection. Those of us who try to be faithful witnesses in
some way have certainly seen this. Maintaining their power
and hoarding great wealth, is what matters most to many
selfish world leaders today, and accepting our Christian
beliefs is not on their list of priorities. As such, while
it would be absolutely wonderful if many of the world's
leaders were to adopt our Christian faith, we need to be
realists and accept that, as we have already seen in recent
months, increasing persecution against Christians seems to
be the order of the day. As the Apostle Paul wrote:

"Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall
suffer persecution." 2 Timothy 3:12, KJV

In a figurative sense, we Endtime Christians are trying to
squeeze the last bit of stuffing into the turkey before it
finally explodes. To put it another way, you can only eat so
much chocolate or ice cream before you finally get sick of
it. In this case, the antichrist world at large has reached
a point where many of them no longer want to hear about the
Lord Jesus Christ. In these final hours of the Latter Days,
the more we try to share our Christian beliefs with others,
the more many seem to be resisting it; and we are truly
becoming hated by all men as the Lord Himself prophesied in
the following verse:

"And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he
that endureth to the end shall be saved."
Matthew 10:22, KJV

Allow me to again encourage you to read such articles as
'Civil Disobedience And Christian Persecution'. While we can
hope and pray for the Salvation of those who are at the helm
of worldly governments, we already know from reading the
Holy Scriptures that, like King Agrippa and his ancestors,
or like evil Emperor Nero, most of them will reject it when
they are given an opportunity to accept the Lord. Not only
that, but God's Word tells us that they will also continue
to become even more corrupt and evil in their ways. As the
Apostle Paul also wrote to Timothy:

"But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse,
deceiving, and being deceived." 2 Timothy 3:13, KJV

Please notice that this verse comes right after the verse I
shared a moment ago regarding persecution. In other words,
it is these very same evil men who will be persecuting us.
Once they have knowingly rejected God's mercy through the
Salvation that He offers them, then this is where I believe
that all of the other verses I have shared in this series,
come into play. Once they have made a clear choice against
God, then I believe that we are really no longer under any
obligation to pray for them. Paul exhorted us to hope and
pray for their Salvation, but we cannot force it upon them.
It must be by their own free choice. Once they have rejected
the Word of the Lord, Jesus Himself tells us:

"Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye
your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their
feet, and turn again and rend you." Matthew 7:6, KJV

"He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth
not with me scattereth abroad." Matthew 12:30, KJV

If Psalm thirty-four clearly tells us that the Lord does not
even hear the prayers of the wicked, that He totally ignores
them, as we saw in part two, then why should we continue to
waste our time on them either? I can tell you from my own
experience, that the more you pressure people after they
have received the message of Salvation, the more they are
likely to harden their hearts, and reject it further. Such
people become so deceived by their own pride and vanity,
that they actually reject God's mercy, as we see by the
following verse:

"They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy."
Jonah 2:8, KJV

In other words, God cannot have mercy upon those who reject
the Truth of the Scriptures, and who live in delusion. While
this may surprise some of you, as I believe I point out in
the article 'Beholding The Evil And The Good', it is quite
possible for a certain person, or even an entire nation of
people, to become so wicked in their ways, that the Lord
might specifically tell us to not even pray for them. I
think that this can especially hold true for some of the
evil leaders of the world. If you find this difficult to
believe, consider the fact that the ancient Israelites, who
were God's very own people, became so evil, and so corrupt,
and had backslidden from the Lord so far in their state of
apostasy, that in three different places in his book, the
Prophet Jeremiah very specifically tells us that the Lord
commanded him to not even pray for them. For those of you
who have also found the similarities between ancient Israel
and the modern United States of America, these verses might
be quite an eye-opener for you:

"Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up
cry nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to me:
for I will not hear thee." Jeremiah 7:16, KJV

"Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a
cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear them in the time
that they cry unto me for their trouble."
Jeremiah 11:14, KJV

"Then said the LORD unto me, Pray not for this people for
their good. When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and
when they offer burnt offering and an oblation, I will not
accept them: but I will consume them by the sword, and by
the famine, and by the pestilence. Then said I, Ah, Lord
GOD! behold, the prophets say unto them, Ye shall not see
the sword, neither shall ye have famine; but I will give you
assured peace in this place. Then the LORD said unto me, The
prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither
have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they
prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing
of nought, and the deceit of their heart. Therefore thus
saith the LORD concerning the prophets that prophesy in my
name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine
shall not be in this land; By sword and famine shall those
prophets be consumed. And the people to whom they prophesy
shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the
famine and the sword; and they shall have none to bury them,
them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters: for
I will pour their wickedness upon them."
Jeremiah 14:11-16, KJV

Notice how the Lord also warns Jeremiah of the coming fate
of the many false prophets in Israel, who prophesied of
peace, safety and plenty, when the Lord had the exact
opposite in store for them. I wonder how many false seers
there are in America today who do this very same thing. They
wave their red, white and blue flags and sing 'God Bless
America', and are living under such strong delusion, that
they don't even realize that He is about to bless them with
judgment! I can hear a few of you scoffers already. 'Ah yes,
there he goes again with his talk of coming gloom and doom!'
Well, for those of you who are so foolish as to doubt my
words, allow me to remind you that from the time that the
Prophet Jeremiah began to prophesy to Israel, a total of
forty years passed before God's judgments actually fell upon
those evil people by way of the Babylonian invasions. In
like manner, when Jesus prophesied the destruction of the
Second Temple in Jerusalem, about forty years also passed
before it was destroyed in 70 A.D. by the Roman General
Titus and his legions. In the case of the global Flood which
occurred in Noah's day, between one hundred and one hundred
and twenty years passed before the rains began to descend.

The point is, God is very merciful; He is slow to anger; He
gives His foolish, rebellious children plenty of time to
repent of their wickedness. This is why His judgments are so
righteous when they finally fall. We have the opportunity to
either repent, or else to continue to fill up our cup of
iniquity; and this applies on a personal level, as well as
on a national level. Please consider the following verses
which clearly describe the true nature of our God:

"And refused to obey, neither were mindful of thy wonders
that thou didst among them; but hardened their necks, and in
their rebellion appointed a captain to return to their
bondage: but thou art a God ready to pardon, gracious and
merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and
forsookest them not." Nehemiah 9:17, KJV

"The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and
plenteous in mercy. He will not always chide: neither will
he keep his anger for ever. He hath not dealt with us after
our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. For
as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy
toward them that fear him. As far as the east is from the
west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth
them that fear him. For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth
that we are dust. As for man, his days are as grass: as a
flower of the field, so he flourisheth. For the wind passeth
over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it
no more. But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to
everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness
unto children's children; To such as keep his covenant, and
to those that remember his commandments to do them." Psalms
103:8-18, KJV

"The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to
anger, and of great mercy." Psalms 145:8, KJV

"It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed,
because his compassions fail not. They are new every
morning: great is thy faithfulness."
Lamentations 3:22,23, KJV

"And he prayed unto the LORD, and said, I pray thee, O LORD,
was not this my saying, when I was yet in my country?
Therefore I fled before unto Tarshish: for I knew that thou
art a gracious God, and merciful, slow to anger, and of
great kindness, and repentest thee of the evil."
Jonah 4:2, KJV

Returning to our main topic, as we see by the previous
verses from the Book of Jeremiah, not only does the Lord
tell us that He does not hear the prayers of the wicked, but
He also tells us that there are times when He does not even
want His own children to pray for them either. Now, this
brings us to the crucial conclusion of this series. As the
Lord Himself clearly tells us in the seventh chapter of the
Gospel of Matthew:

"Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's
clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall
know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns,
or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth
good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A
good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a
corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that
bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into
the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them."
Matthew 7:15-20, KJV

While Jesus was applying His Words to false prophets, it is
obvious that we can apply His counsel to other situations as
well. Not only should we apply the Lord's Words to our own
lives, but we should apply them to anyone who claims to be a
Christian; even to our government leaders; and that is the
gist of my main message to you in this series. For those of
you who insist that we should pray for the president and
other leaders of the government of the United States of
America, allow me to ask you several pointed questions:
While some of them claim to be Christians, and while we see
some of them in made-for-TV shots attending Sunday worship
services, do these men and women truly display the fruits of
a true Christian in their lives? More pointedly, does the
current American president display the qualities of a true

I am sure that I do not need to lead any of you by the hand
in answering this question. You are all familiar with what
kinds of policies and practices he and the American Congress
have supported since they came into power. You are aware of
the current state of gay and lesbian rights; you are aware
of the power of the pro-abortionist lobby; you are aware of
how many countries have been mercilessly bombed, supposedly
all for justifiable reasons, since this president came into
office; and there are many other wicked things which are
rumoured concerning this current president. Based upon your
knowledge of these issues, can you honestly say that this
man is a true Christian? Can you honestly say that he is
worthy of the prayers of true Christians? Can you honestly
say that you know in your heart that it is God's Will for
you to pray for this man? As I pointed out in part one of
this series, the results of our prayers depend upon three
factors. If one of them is not aligned with the other two,
then our prayers will be totally ineffective. In plain talk,
they are useless. So tell me, do you believe that this
president is truly trying to align his will with the Will
of the Father? Does the fruit of his life prove it?

In conclusion then, as members of God righteous Kingdom, and
His worldwide spiritual nation of born-again believers, I am
of the opinion that in matters of prayer, our obligations
are to pray for our own coming Kingdom, to pray for our own
spiritual elders and our brethren in the faith, and to pray
for the Lord's lost sheep who are still destined to become
His children. This seems to be the overall statement of all
of the verses I have found in the New Testament. Only that
one set of verses written by Paul, makes any mention
whatsoever of praying for worldly leaders; and even those
seemed primarily concerned with the general Salvation of all
men. Once they reject that Salvation, once they turn their
back on God in favor of worldly power and wealth, they have
made their choice to remain the children of darkness, and
the children of the world, or what Paul referred to as the
children of wrath, and the children of disobedience. As we
saw clearly in the verse from John chapter seventeen, Jesus
did not pray for the world, but only for His own children.

So what will you do? I certainly cannot decide for you, and
I don't wish to decide for you. As in all of my articles, I
have done my best to provide you my readers with the verses
I have found which are pertinent to this subject. How you
pray, where you pray, how long you pray, and for whom you
pray, is of course entirely up to you. I just hope that you
are not praying for someone whom the Lord has already turned
His back on, and for whom He does not want us praying. The
Scriptural evidence is there; you decide for yourself. As
the Apostle Paul also wrote:

"...Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind."
Romans 14:5b, KJV

I pray that this series has been informative, and a blessing
in your life. Please pray according to God's Will, and not
according to your own.
