Almighty God the Father Gave Authority to Jesus Christ in the Holy Bible to Intercede in the Affairs of Government-and of Men, Women and Children

So we will determine here that implementation of prophecy is not by the work of any humanly performed activity, but by the power of Almighty God as eternal Sovereign to act upon or against earthly activities that challenge His authority and go against His written Word in the Holy Bible.

Those Christians, who in obedience to His will, perform in their lives those things that are righteous in His sight are found by Scriptural standards to be those He will honor in eternity. Other Christians who have accepted Him as Lord and Savior, but diverge from His will (many in mainline Christianity) will have their salvation according to the power of His shed blood (this term being used in deference to your admitted connections to that type of belief), but will lose rewards.

The final category are those, who claiming to be Christian but are devoid of the spirit due to unbelief and full of pride, are they who will be the ones Jesus will say depart from me…for I never knew you.

Governments are an institution ordained by Almighty God (see Noah's Covenant after the flood), and are for the purpose of human administration on earth with a fiat of authority from Heaven. Whether a government governs according to its duty and fidelity to the original ordinance or not has its determination by Almighty God to rule according to the disposition of the governed to be in obedience to the Divine order as revealed in the Holy Bible.

One will notice that organized religion will meet its demise in the Revelation on the course to bring all elements of world government, secular and religious, under the complete and absolute authority of Jesus Christ. This will happen after the pretender to the throne, the last attempt to establish a worldly regime after all else, has failed.

It is noted here, that while that last (is it a Sura or a Hadith?) makes some sort of distinction between true Christians and others, that it is also a Biblical fact that Jewish believers having faith in their LORD are amongst those who will be in eternity with their LORD in the future.

The final reality is that belief and faith in Jesus Christ as described in the Holy Bible is still quite necessary if one desires to get into Heaven as described by Jesus Christ. This can only be accorded to those who have accepted Jesus Christ in their hearts for forgiveness of their sins, in order to have the righteousness of Jesus Christ as their covering. Even meekness and humility without that personal relationship does not get it done without the power of Jesus Christ in their lives.

Such as it is, this is as it is written in the Holy Bible.
