States in the U.S. are moving into another election cycle. Why shouldn’t one of the candidates simply declare him/herself to be governor? Because, in addition to such action being seditiously foolish, one can only become a governor by constitutional authority.
Jesus did not place himself into the office of Messiah/Christ. Such action would have treacherously bypassed divine order, and shown disrespect and contempt for God’s authority. Jesus was God manifest in the flesh, but it was the man Jesus who filled the office of Christ. He was placed into this office by God through a physical, visible ceremony. Matt 3:13-17
Jesus didn’t bypass God’s order on earth... neither should we. Jesus’ government on earth, the Church, has physical form, ordinances, ordained officers, and authority by divine right. No other organization on earth can rightfully make such a claim. In the New Testament God exclusively used His church to place called men into His offices and enforce accountability. He does the same today. Every believer should work in and through a sound bible-based church.
