Proverbs 25:5 (Amplified Bible)
25:5 Take away the wicked from before the king, and his throne will be established in righteousness (moral and spiritual rectitude in every area and relation).
Praise, worship and thank You very much LORD JESUS for You have established Your Throne in earth in righteousness for You are Righteous, Holy and Just.
How to establish a government in righteousness?
A. Authors: Credited generally to King Solomon before his character downfall/decline.
B. Date written: from 931 to 686 B.C.
C. Purpose: To give moral instruction
D. Main Theme: Fear of the LORD
VIII. MAIN BODY:
A. Take away the wicked before the leader
"Take away the wicked from before the king,"
Take away or removed from the Hebrew word "hagah". This is difficult to do there are fake CHRISTians willing to deceive just to get money. Only GOD can do this, so request GOD to do His WORDS.
Psalms 75:6 (Amplified Bible)
75:6 For not from the east nor from the west nor from the south come promotion and lifting up.
1 Samuel 2:7 (Amplified Bible)
2:7 The Lord makes poor and makes rich; He brings low and He lifts up.
Wicked are of course, unbelievers without any relationship with the LORD JESUS CHRIST as LORD and SAVIOR. He/she is not wicked because of what he/she does but he/she is wicked because He rejected GOD, the SON, the LORD JESUS CHRIST as LORD and SAVIOR.
Ephesians 2:8-9 (Amplified Bible)
2:8 For it is by free grace (God’s unmerited favor) that you are saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ’s salvation) through [your] faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [of your own doing, it came not through your own striving], but it is the gift of God;
2:9 Not because of works [not the fulfillment of the Law’s demands], lest any man should boast. [It is not the result of what anyone can possibly do, so no one can pride himself in it or take glory to himself.]
That's why two of the highest position in the land MUST be BOTH believers for this to happen or take place. Here in the Philippines, we are talking about the President and the Senate President of the land. They MUST be BOTH believers, if only one is, chaos will happen.
2 Corinthians 6:15 (Amplified Bible)
6:15 What harmony can there be between Christ and Belial [the devil]? Or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever?
These things can only be accomplished in prayer. Just like right now, 2016 is nearing where we can vote for our President and Senate President.
How to discern if a person is a (real) believer in CHRIST?
Hear their speeches, when they say "I will serve you well." Don't vote this man/woman.
But if he/she does say, "I will serve CHRIST JESUS as my LORD and SAVIOR." Vote this man/woman.
Of course, they can fake it but you can watch for their fruit.
Ephesians 6:6 (Amplified Bible)
6:6 Not in the way of eye-service [as if they were watching you] and only to please men, but as servants (slaves) of Christ, doing the will of God heartily and with your whole soul;
Colossians 3:22 (Amplified Bible)
3:22 Servants, obey in everything those who are your earthly masters, not only when their eyes are on you as pleasers of men, but in simplicity of purpose [with all your heart] because of your reverence for the Lord and as a sincere expression of your devotion to Him.
B. The government will be established in righteousness
"and his throne will be established in righteousness (moral and spiritual rectitude in every area and relation)."
Throne from Hebrew means "covered" or "seat, stool, throne" these pertains to seat of power whatever form of government a country has, there's always a "king" sitting in throne, for example, other countries have prime minister, president or king. This is applicable to a president here in the Philippines.
The speeches of these political candidates are deceiving. As human being, they pleased their own kind. A believer only pleases GOD and the LORD JESUS CHRIST.
If you want a government that is established or set up for righteousness, then it means there will be no corruption, because corruption has been taken care of first of all.
Yes, full righteousness can only be achieved by GOD's Throne.
Isaiah 9:7 (Amplified Bible)
9:7 Of the increase of His government and of peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from the [latter] time forth, even forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
