Submission: When you accept an authority and do what that authority demands
Every time you disobey someone, it is like you are telling that person that they have no authority over you
When you don’t submit to authority, there are consequences
In this present time, there are many people who refuse to submit to God or the people that God put in charge
We see that children don’t obey parents, wives don’t respect or obey husbands, and husbands disobey God
When you refuse to listen to those God puts in charge, it is the same as rebelling against God.
Jeremiah 27:1-15 God put king Nebuchadnezzar in charge and told all nations to submit to him. God can use anyone He wants.
There is a reason that God puts certain people in positions of authority. More often than not, they protect all those under their authority
Jeremiah 27:8 God told Israel that if they did not submit to Nebuchadnezzar, bad things would happen
Jeremiah 27:9-10 People always like to hear what they want to hear, that is why God warned the people not to listen to false prophets telling them not to give up to Nebuchadnezzar
When we disobey someone in authority, like our parents or the police, we will suffer the consequences and our lives will be shorter
Christians can not live in disobedience
Jeremiah 28 Hananiah, another prophet, spoke against the message that God gave Jeremiah. He told the people of Israel that they should not submit to Nebuchadnezzar. This is what the people wanted to hear, so they believed him. Hananiah was punished because he rebelled against God’s word
If you want to live well and get to heaven, you must submit to His word
Daniel 4 We see that God spoke to Nebuchadnezzar in a vision and Daniel was the only one to explain it to him.
God wanted Nebuchadnezzar to submit to Him.
Nebuchadnezzar refused to submit and God put him down. God caused him to live among animals eating grass. God will not let anyone mess with Him.
Nebuchadnezzar eventually realized that God is the true god and God restored him
Sumisyon: Le ou aksepte yon otorite e fe sa otorite sa mande ou
Chak fwa ou dezobeyi yon moun, se tankou-w di moun sa ke li pa gen otorite sou ou.
Le ou pa soumet anba yon otorite, gen yon konsekans pou sa
Nan tan nap viv la, anpil moun pa soumet devan Bondye, ni devan moun Bondye mete an chaj yo
Nan tan sa, nou we pitit pa obeyi ak paran yo, madanm pa obeyi ak mari, e mari pa obeyi ak Bondye.
Si ou leve kont yon moun Bondye mete an chaj, se kont Bondye ou leve.
Jeremi 27:1-15 Bondye mete Nebikadneza an chaj e Li di pou tout moun soumet anba wa sa. Bondye ka itilize ninpot moun li vle
Gen yon rezon ki fe Bondye bay kek pami nou otorite. Le nou gade, se moun ki gen otorite a ki souvan ap pwoteje lot yo ki anba otorite li
Jeremi 27:8 Bondye di pep Izrayel ke si yo pa koube devan wa Nebikadneza, men sa kap rive yo
Jeremi 27:9-10 Lom toujou renmen tande sa kap fe ke yo plezi, se sak fe Bondye te aveti pep la pou yo pa tande fo pwofet kap vin di yo pou yo pa soumet anba Nebikadneza nan
Le nou dezobeyi yon moun ki gen otorite, tankou paran nou ou byen lapolis, nap peye konsekans lan e lavi nou ka vin pi kout
Kretyen paka viv nan dezobeyisans
Jeremi 28 Ananya, youn nan lot pwofet yo, te pale kont pawol Bondye te bay pwofet Jeremi. Li di pou Izrayel pa soumet anba Nebikadneza, e paske se sa pep la te vle tande, yo kwe fo pwofet la. Ananya te jwen pinisyon pa-l paske li te rebele kont pawol Bondye te bay Jeremi
Si ou vle viv byen e rive kote Bondye, fok ou soumet anba pawol Li.
Danyel 4 Nou we Bondye pale avek wa Nebikadneza nan yon vizyon. Danyel esplike rev la ba li.
Bondye te vle Nebikadneza soumet devan Li.
Nebikadneza pat soumet e Bondye te mete-l ate. Bondye fe-l al viv pami bet ap manje zeb. Bondye pa nan rans ak moun ki pa vle soumet devan Li.
Nebikadneza te vin rekonet ke se Bondye ki vre dye a e Bondye te remet li plas li.
