Like our Shepherd Jesus, we, His followers, may not be engaged in the politics of the kingdoms of this world because His kingdom is not of this world and because the kingdom of God is within us.

Our Shepherd is a King but His Kingdom is not of this world. 

Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.  John 18:36-37 ASV

Christians are supposed to be followers of Jesus

(24)  Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. (25)  For whosoever would save his life shall lose it: and whosoever shall lose his life for my sake shall find it. Matthew 16:24-25 ASV

Our Kingdom is not of this world either if Jesus is our Shepherd

(20)  And being asked by the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God cometh, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: (21)  neither shall they say, Lo, here! or, There! for lo, the kingdom of God is within you. Luke 17:20-21 ASV

The Kingdom of our Shepherd Jesus is not of this world. Thus, our Kingdom cannot be of this world either. Jesus was not engaged in any iota of political movements of any kind. So, we may not seek to push for acceptance of any biblical doctrine in any government. The Gospel is to be preached and taught to both left and right of the political spectrums.

Jesus is apolitical! He ministered both to the brutal Roman invaders and the Jews. Jesus was even flabbergasted, mesmerized by the incomparable and astonishing faith of some Roman invaders!

Pilate did not find any iota of involvement of Jesus in Roman affairs that he could have used as an excuse to condemn Him even though Jesus told him He was indeed a King. Jesus might have impressed the heart of Pilate to salvation because Pilate immortalized the Kingship of Jesus by letting all know that Jesus was indeed the King of Israel who is YHWH.

The governments of the earth under Satan will gather for the final battle


The time will come when every government will league under the beast to fight a losing war against Jesus. Hence, witnesses of Jesus may not engage in establishing governments. Jesus does use governments to fulfill His will whether we lobby them or not. Daniel and his companions held the highest positions in Babylon but it was to prepare Babylon to receive His people and to release them when the time comes and also for Jesus to minister to the world that He is in charge. Israel is still being trampled down as Jesus prophesied but this is until the time of the nations trampling Israel is fulfilled. When the time comes, the nations will be driven out of Israel under a leader just like in the era of Moses. 

In the macrocosm of things, if the spirits of devils will go to the governments of the world to gather them for the battle, we do not want to elect governments to avoid 'aiding and abetting' somehow because Jesus will put in the minds of the governments to prepare for the battle (Revelation 17:17). That is why Jesus calls on 'His people' to 'come out of Babylon' in order not to participate in its punishments (Revelation 18:4) and because the governments of the earth fornicate with Babylon (Revelation 18:9), somehow aided and abetted as accomplices in the shedding of innocent blood (Revelation 17:17), as it is written: 'And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all the ones having been slain on the earth'. Revelation 18:24. 

Revelation 16:13-14 KJV
(13)  And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.
(14)  For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

Revelation 17:17 LITV
For God gave into their hearts to do His mind, and to act in one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the Words of God shall be fulfilled.

THE LORD [YHWH in Hebrew] JESUS [YHOSHUA in Hebrew] CHRIST [MESSIAH in Hebrew] WHOM WE FOLLOW WOULD NOT VOTE FOR ANY POLITICAL PARTY CANDIDATES

JESUS WAS NEITHER A PHARISEE NOR A SADDUCEE




(36) Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. (37) Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end have I been born, and to this end am I come into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. (38) Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find no crime in him. John 18:36-38 ASV

If Jesus would be involved in voting, His chosen candidate can never lose to the candidate of Satan. 

Bible politics (Acts 1:8, Matthew 28:18-20, Luke 24:47-48) which was entrusted to Moses is millennia old, concerns our behavior, and does not change with time or circumstances (Matthew 5:17-18). The politics of Jesus is not activism against only abortion and homosexuality or any other outlandish cause purported to be a biblical endeavor by any Christian denomination. Those who can hear the voice of Jesus know that the politics of Jesus encompasses ALL THINGS that are in the Scriptures not just a curation because it is the WHOLE Torah which went out of Zion (Isaiah 2:1-3).

Case and point: the year 2020 elections in the United States of America in which the chosen republican angel President was divinely prophesied to win reelection by many evangelical Christians but lost to the democratic satanic beast of Apocalypse. It is worth noting that the satanic predecessor of the republican angel President won two terms.

Hence, if God chooses both satanic and angelic presidents, there is no mandate on those who follow Jesus to vote for a particular candidate because we end up voting against Jesus (Revelation 17:11-17) who cannot lose to Satan in His choices, which, if our Christian candidate loses, indicates that we are not following Jesus. 

For instance, there is no way that the REAL HEBREW GOD Jesus and those who follow after Him could have any part in the embarrassing process of the North American presidential elections of 2020 (or any elections).  Jesus could not have have inspired us, His followers, to deny the tabulation of the results of the elections, to call on the election officials to unsuccessfully court them to overturn the choice of Satan because, though His servants the Evangelicals, Jesus promised a second term to the chosen Christian President who lost to the candidate of Satan.

NO WAY!

Moreover, it is prophesied that all governments will fight against Jesus. God wills it that way. Therefore, we do not want to be the ones who elect them. Revelation 17:11-17. As we may learn from the 2020 elections in the United States of America, we can forego reason or whatever else to take a bullet for our candidate or go to war with Jesus who appears to disappoint us one way or another.





Revelation 17:11-17 ASV
(11) And the beast that was, and is not, is himself also an eighth, and is of the seven; and he goeth into perdition.
(12) And the ten horns that thou sawest are ten kings, who have received no kingdom as yet; but they receive authority as kings, with the beast, for one hour.
(13) These have one mind, and they give their power and authority unto the beast.
(14) These shall war against the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them, for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings; and they also shall overcome that are with him, called and chosen and faithful.
(15) And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the harlot sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
(16) And the ten horns which thou sawest, and the beast, these shall hate the harlot, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and shall burn her utterly with fire.
(17) For God did put in their hearts to do his mind, and to come to one mind, and to give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God should be accomplished.

Would Jesus march or allow His disciples to march with any group of either side marching for justice for all: the oppressed as well as the oppressors?

Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.  Isaiah 1:17 KJV
learn to do good; seek judgment, reprove the oppressor. Judge the orphan, plead for the widow.  Isaiah 1:17 MKJV
learn to do good; seek judgment; restore unto the oppressed; hear the fatherless in right judgment; protect the widow. Isaiah 1:17 JUB
Learn to do good, seek justice, straighten the oppressor, judge the orphan, strive for the widow. Isaiah 1:17 KJ3
Learn to do good; seek judgment, reprove the oppressor. Judge the orphan, plead for the widow.  Isaiah 1:17 AFV 2011.
learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow's cause.  Isaiah 1:17 ESV
learn to do well: seek judgment, gladden the oppressed, do justice to the fatherless, plead for the widow.  Isaiah 1:17 Darby
Leave off the evil! Learn to be good! Inquire for judgment! Make happy the wronged! Judge the orphan! Contend for the widow! Isaiah 1:17 CLV
Seek judgment, make happy the oppressed, Judge the fatherless, strive for the widow.  Isaiah 1:17 YLT
learn to do well; diligently seek judgment, deliver him that is suffering wrong, plead for the orphan, and obtain justice for the widow.  Isaiah 1:17 Brenton
Learne to do well, applie your selues to equitie, deliuer the oppressed, helpe the fatherlesse to his ryght, let the widdowes complaynt come before you: Isaiah 1:17 Bishops, 1568 AD.
Learn [good to do]! Inquire of equity! Rescue the one wronged! Judge for the orphan! and do justice for the widow! Isaiah 1:17 ABP
Seek judgment, make the oppressed blessed, || Judge the fatherless, strive [for] the widow.  Isaiah 1:17 LSV
Learn to do good; search for justice; set right the oppressor; render judgment for the fatherless boy; plead the cause of the widow." Isaiah 1:17 NW

As Christians, we are to imitate Jesus and the Apostles. Did Jesus and the Apostles speak or march against the Romans who were oppressing and killing the Jews who sought justice and reprieve for the citizenry?

The translations of the Bible had been used even as a foundation to establish slavery as a Jesus sanctioned culture even though the same Bible calls for death penalty for anyone who captures another man with the mere intention to sell him into slavery (Exodus 21:16); even though Jesus always commanded the Jews not to oppress anyone because they had been oppressed in Egypt as slaves.

And he that steals a man and sells him, or if he is found in his hand, dying he shall die.  Exodus 21:16 LITV

If a man be found stealing any of his brethren of the children of Israel, and maketh merchandise of him, or selleth him; then that thief shall die; and thou shalt put evil away from among you.  Deuteronomy 24:7 KJVA

The question that remains is 'did Jesus or His Apostles join a group of His time to march with them for justice?' Was Jesus or His Apostles part of Barabbas's freedom or justice movement for his citizenry? If Jesus did not take part in any such movement, may we view the nature of the mission of Jesus as the reason why He did not oppose the Romans in any way, which, mission or reason, is different from our mission as Christians today? May a Christian engage in any movement which Jesus Himself will not join?

And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, receiving the word in much affliction with joy of holy spirit, 1 Thessalonians 1:6 CLV

(13) And therefore we also are thanking God unintermittingly that, in accepting the word heard from us, from God you receive, not the word of men, but, according as it truly is, the word of God, which is operating also in you who are believing." (14) For you became imitators, brethren, of the ecclesias of God which are in Judea in Christ Jesus... 1 Thessalonians 2:13-14 CLV


As Witnesses of Jesus of Nazareth, we may not engage in politics to turn any of the Bible principles into the law of any land because the kingdom of Jesus, our kingdom, is not of this world (John 18:36) and because Jesus was not involved in any politics while He lived on earth under the brutal Roman rule of Israel. Rather, Jesus knocks on each heart personally (Revelation 3:20) through our witnessing (Acts 1:8, Matthew 28:18-20, Luke 24:47-48) to not participate in injustice.

Barabbas, not Jesus and His disciples, was championing the cause for justice for the Israelites, most likely not as Jesus would have willed because the Israelites chose Barabbas over Jesus who was content of the various Romans who believed in Him and showed astonishing faith which is not found in Israel.

Jesus never told Barabbas and his followers to stand down and be oppressed. He did not join their cause either because He was ministering to the hearts in all camps, no matter how precarious the situation may be on the ground.

The commission of disciples, apostles, or witnesses of Jesus is to proclaim the Gospel to both the oppressed and the oppressors. Those who follow Jesus cannot be part of tearing down and shedding blood. If you would get to know Jesus you would come to understand that Jesus would not have approved His own for what is involved in matters of political elections. Jesus will not be involved in the disenfranchisement of anybody. For now until the end of time when judgment has come, He respects our individual voice and choice (Deuteronomy 30:11-20).
