Why Christians Must Occupy Every Leadership Position

Leadership is one of the most important roles in the race of humankind. Without proper leadership, the world will be in a disaster. God Almighty Himself is a leader. He created different angels (cherubs, seraphs, archangels, dominions, principalities, virtues, and ministering angels) to serve His purpose.

These angels have a role to play in the leadership of God. God is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent, and there is no need for Him creating angels to assist Him. Yet, in His wisdom, He created these spiritual forces to enable Him to work successfully as a Leader.

God can live alone without His creation because in Him is life, love, joy, peace, and every positive virtue we can think of. God created plants, animals, and other creations to produce out of its kind.

After God created the tangible things we see on this earth, He created human beings to control His creation. That is our leadership position. God has delegated some of His leadership responsibilities to us.

The moment we ignore the role of leadership in our life, we become rebellious in the sight of God. God knew the animals could not control and manage their affairs, so He gave us leadership responsibility.

Failure to align ourselves to the leadership role God has assigned for us makes us disobedient to the Word of God. Every man born of a woman is a leader because the Word of God confirms it (See Genesis 1:26).

God created the female (Eve) to assist the male (Adam) because every leader needs a helpmeet (an assistant). See the book of Genesis, chapter two, verses eighteen in the holy scriptures. In God’s wisdom, men are natural leaders, and women are genuine followers. I have never seen two drivers controlling the steering of a car at the same time.

One drives the car whiles the other assists the driver. That is how the world revolves. Everything we see in this world grows in the realms of leadership. God knows humankind could cater for the trees, animals, and other creations, so He gave us the wisdom to manage them.

I define leadership as playing the role of God in the earth realm. Leadership starts with yourself. Until you realize that you are a leader, you have not entered the realm of recognition. It takes self-realization, humility, knowledge, training, discipline, and morality to develop the leadership seed God has invested in you.

The world is full of corruption because the people leading these countries, cities, organizations, and various institutions are not born again. The word born again means you have repented, accepted, and confessed Christ Jesus as your Saviour and Lord of your life.

People who are not born again lack God’s character (moral virtue) to lead nations and organizations in a godly way. It is one reason I write this article for Christian believers. Until we realize that it takes people full of the Holy Spirit to lead the countries, cities, villages, ministries, and various organizations in the steps of God, we will forever be in hardship, corruption, and oppression.

We (Christian believers) have allowed the unbelievers to occupy the leadership position, affecting us. One thing I dislike about most Christians is that they fight what they don’t understand.

It looks like most Christians are ignorant to the extent they destroy the channels that leads to their deliverance—so much hypocrisy in the body of Christ Jesus. Sometimes I wonder it is “Christians” that are acting in such a manner.

Most Christians live in poverty, fear, and confusion because they oppose what they do not understand. It looks like most Christians are more in tune with the orthodoxy than the orthopraxy. Most Christians follow traditions without questioning the source.

“Religious Christians” follow church traditions and forget the essence of quality and godly leadership. The moment you act outside the ancient patterns laid by religious leaders, you become an enemy to the body of Christ. It looks like most Christians are imbeciles searching for the meaning of life.

I’m a Christian, and I have lived among Christians since my childhood. I have interacted with Muslims, Buddhists, freethinkers, and some educated people in my homeland, Ghana, and other people living outside Ghana through social media.

It looks like every country or citizen has a way of expressing their religious faith. From my experience, I have realized that “Christians” are the most hypocrites of all religions. I will categorize Christianity as a religion for now because of the point I am about to make.

Most Christians oppose other Christians who enter into politics because they believe politics is evil. Some Christians assume you are evil when you call yourself a politician. Forgive me because I have been in that state, and I am counting myself as a Christian minister, author, and Christian politician.

If you study the holy scriptures carefully, you will understand that God called some people to operate in the field of governmental positions (politics). For instance, Daniel was a prophet of God, an educated leader, and an adviser to kings (Presidents). He played an important role in the government (politics) of Babylon.

Joseph was a man that feared (reverenced) God with all his heart. If Joseph was alive in our time, he would have been a Bishop of a church and the Speaker of Parliament or one of the most outstanding leaders (Vice President or a minister of a country).

Joseph operated in the field of politics as a leader in the land of Egypt despite his devotion to God. To mention a few, Moses, Elijah, Nathan, and Isaiah operated as prophets and worked in governmental positions.

Today, most Christian believers tag other Christians as sinners the moment they see them operating in politics. I often hear some Christians say politicians are corrupt. That is a fallacy because it is not all politicians that are corrupt. The reason why politics has become evil is that the foundation is faulty.

It has become a philosophy of most Politican’s that cheating, deception, false promises, and the use of evil powers are ways to occupy governmental positions. We know Barack Obama is the first African to be elected as the 44th president of the United States of America.

Most of the United States of America citizens supported Barack Obama to occupy the presidency's seat (white house). I believe he did not use a corrupt system to occupy that leadership position.

Many Presidents and leaders occupied high positions in their country in a godly way. A few presidents who won the presidential seat peacefully are Lazarus Chakwera (Christian theologian in Malawi), Kwame Nkrumah (First President of Ghana), Nelson Mandela (First black President of South Africa), and Donald Trump.

If Christians should come together and appoint faithful and Spirit-filled Christian leaders who are ready can occupy the world's governmental positions, there will be equality, development, and unity.

Our (Christian believers) eternal home is the Celestial City. We must understand that we live in this world, and the governmental policies of this world will affect us whether or not we like it.

If you are a reasonable person, you will join hands with faithful and Spirit-filled Christian believers to occupy every leadership position because God has delegated the management of this world to us (See Genesis 2:23-24).

If politicians are corrupt, they are not Christian believers. It may be that they have another spirit different from the Holy Spirit. Even if the corrupt politicians call themselves Christians, they are not born again. These politicians are using the title of Christianity to camouflage the Christian faith.

Whether these politicians use socialism, capitalism, conventionalism, anarchism, authoritarianism, democracy, communitarianism, conservatism, corporatism, or any form of leadership style or political philosophy to rule, we must come together as Christians and appoint our leaders.

Most Christians want politicians to act morally and use the economy's funds to develop the nation, but we (Christian believers) have failed to take responsibility. If the politicians use the tax payer’s money, aids received from other countries, and other developmental funds to build the economy, evil will minimize.

Christians should stop acting religiously by saying this world is not our home. Indeed, this world is not our home, but we are living in it! If we (Christian believers) fail to take the leadership position, we will allow the devil to use the unbelievers to control us.

We must understand that the devil has nothing good for us. He came to steal, kill, and destroy. Christ Jesus came with life, joy, peace, and understanding. It is the one that carries the Spirit of God that can lead the nation in the path of God.


Remember the words of Christ Jesus.

Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Matthew 5:13-16 KJV

Our Saviour and Lord Jesus said we (Christian believers) are the light and salt of this world. We know that light brings vision. Light enables us to see the danger. Without light, we will not know the path of life (right direction). The light in the context of this scripture stands for leadership.

Christian believers are leaders of this world. We must occupy the seats of these corrupt politicians. If we don’t occupy the politicians' seats, they will become the light (leaders) of this world.

If the unbelievers become leaders of this world, we have disobeyed our Saviour and Lord Jesus Christ's words. If we allow the unbelievers to become the light of this world, we will live in depression and corruption

If we allow the unbelievers to occupy the high seats in this world, we will continue to live in oppression because they will decide for us. The righteous always suffer because of wicked leadership (See Ezekiel 22:23-31, Proverbs 29:2).

When the righteous (Christian believer) rule, there is liberation. It is time Christian believers stop living in hypocrisy and occupy the high seats because we are the light (leaders) and salt (substance) of this world (THIS EARTH REALM).

We (Christian leaders) are relevant in this world. Without us, the world will be full of disaster. The unbelievers live in darkness because they are blind in the spirit. If the blind leads the blind, they fall into darkness. We must not allow the unbelievers to decide for us. These are the words of Jesus Christ to the church in Thyatira (includes every Christian believer).


And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:

And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.

Revelation 2:26-27 KJV

Jesus said He would give us the power to rule over nations! We know that it is the President, vice president, members of parliament (MP’s), speaker of parliament, ministers of cities, and other ground leaders that lead nations. What stops us as Christian believers to forsake our leadership position?

If the politicians embezzle the country’s resources, they are not the right people to lead the nation and manage its resources. It is time Spirit-filled Christians occupy high positions in various countries because it is the leadership that makes decisions.

If the leaders (politicians) are corrupt, it means we have allowed them to rule us. If we fight other Christians from occupying these leadership positions, we do great harm to ourselves. It is written.


For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

Isaiah 9:6-7 KJV

This is a prophetic Word. The above scriptures talk about the prophecy of Christ Jesus, who will be born to the earth, and the scriptures declare that the government will rest upon His shoulders. I can interpret the government in the context of this scripture as;

1.  Spiritual government (the church on earth and the Celestial City)

2. Earthly government (Various leadership on earth)

If the leadership shall rest on the shoulders of Christ Jesus and we are followers of Jesus, then every leadership position, including the presidency, ministers of the cities, and church leaders as must rest on the Christian faith.

Besides being leaders in the spiritual realm and churches, we are also leaders in the earth realm (governmental bodies). If we allow the unbelievers to occupy the leadership positions on this earth, they will abuse us. We must take the spiritual and earthly position because our King (Christ Jesus) reigns.

The time is now; we (Christian believers) must occupy the seats of the President, Vice President, Members of Parliament, and all leadership positions in the world because we are light and salt of this world.

As the scripture records, the government (both spiritual and physical leadership) must rest on our shoulders (Christian believers). Whether the Satanic kingdom controls the Federal reserves, International Monetary Funds, Supreme courts, International banks, and other high leadership positions, Christ Jesus has conquered them in the spiritual realm. We must take our rights and fight on our knees to dismantle their demonic seats and occupy our position.  

All Christians (orthodox, Adventists, Charismatics, Baptists, Methodists under the Protestants, or any group) leaders should form one political party in every country. We will create our party, appoint parliamentary members, the president, and his vice, who will stand-in for election.

We will all agree to vote for these candidates to take the leadership position. If we follow this path, the economy and church will grow. With God and His angels on our side and with earnest intercession as we call on God to dominate the invisible powers (spiritual host of wickedness and other demonic influence) that try to stop us, we will win because we are overcomers in Christ Jesus.
