Question 5 - To whom the Disciples of Christ obey?

1 Peter 2:13 NKJV - "Therefore submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake, whether to the king as supreme"
Romans 13:1-2 NKJV - "Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves."
Acts 5:29 NKJV - "But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: "We ought to obey God rather than men."

                According to the Roman 13:1-2, all authorities, who were formed by the human being and commandments of the rules of the kingdom, were from the Lord only. Judges were appointed for the sake of salvation of the people. Refer Exodus 18:25.
                As in John 14:30, some people mingled with the rulers of the world and do the things which were against the commandments and divine rules. So, Peter and the other apostles answered and said in the Acts of the Apostles: “We ought to obey God rather than men”. From this, we know that we must yield to the authorities, who go according to the commandments and rules of the Lord. If you obey to the authorities, who does according to the commandments of rules of the Lord, is it not yielding to the Lord?
                The one, who appointed Moses as the ruler, was the Lord God only. The one who appointed the head of Christians of the world is also the Lord God only. So, it is not the meaning in this that you must yield to the authorities, who take bribe must practices the authority in wrong way. The persons, who practiced the authorities, which came from Lord, in wrong way, were Saul, Ahab, Herod, etc kings.
                So, they became the reason to get their own catastrophe.
