I doubt many Americans will remember much about the Government of Man. For some it will bring back memories of history class in high school but still be a rather vague term.
Throughout history, regardless of the continent, there have been conflicts and wars. Out of these we see time and time again the evolution of some kind of authority structure or government mechanism to set up and maintain social order.
There is plenty of evidence to support man's desire and need, regardless of the culture, for some form of governmental structure in his life. Some have a greater need for this structure than others.
This has always been inherent in the human spirit and is also a manifestation of the God-given mandate given to mankind.
Simply put, man was designed to be a governor and ruler, and as a result it's his nature to seek some form of authority to bring order to his world. In this context government is not only desirable but necessary.
This need for social order has its beginnings in the smallest segment of society, the family, and reaches out as far as the national expressions of constitutional order. This expression of government structure resulted from a desire to bring order out of chaos. This was first expressed in the book of Genesis chapter 1:2-3, "Now the earth was formless, without order, and empty, chaotic, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, "Let there be light", and there was light "
At the highest level know to man we see the need for a divine government to bring order to chaos. The purpose of man was to manage the chaos through God's government. In Genesis 2:4-6 we read proof of God's purpose for man, "When the Lord God made he earth and the heavens, and no shrub of the field had yet appeared on the earth, and no plant of the field had yet sprung up, for the Lord God had not sent rain o the earth and there was no man to work [manage or administrate] the ground, but streams came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground".
It's obvious from this passage that the Creator did not allow for any productive growth to take place until man showed up on the scene. So, one of the main reasons for the creation of man was to provide a manager, a ruler of the planet. Now we understand what God meant when he said in Genesis 1:26, "Then God said, "let Us make man in our image and let them rule [or have dominion] over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, over all the creatures that move along the ground". The word dominion here comes from the Hebrew word, mamlakah, meaning "kingdom" or "sovereign rule" or government.
The absence of a correct government of man will always lead to chaos and injustice. Witness the countries operating under dictatorships, socialism, communism, or religious rule. The answer for each of these countries is correct government. Genesis tells us everything we need to know about the flaws of the current state of the government of man.
The concept of government started out as the idea of God. The fall of man as recorded in Genesis recalls the act of man declaring his independence from the government of heaven and as a result the earth was subjected to anarchy and social chaos. Ever since, mankind has been trying to implement a form of self-government that would address the most pressing problems.
When man decided he would have nothing to do with the government of heaven he brought on himself the chaos and problems he is now experiencing. And yet society wonders why it suffers the ills it does and then thinks it can come up with the answer on its own.
It was God's intent to rule earth from heaven through the one created in his own image (nature). God's government is still misunderstood today. God's government can be best described as Government by corporate leadership, a system of a King over kings as partners in governing.
The Exodus story reveals that God instructed Moses to tell the children of Israel that they would be governed by the laws of Heaven and be led by himself as their King on earth. This was God's attempt to once again establish the Kingdom of heaven on earth using this small nation as the prototype..."Now if you obey Me fully and keep my covenant, then out of all the nations you will be My treasured possession. Although the whole earth is Mine, you will be for Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation." These are the words you are to speak to the Israelites (Exodus 19:5-6).
It's important to note here that the fall of man as recorded in Genesis was not about man losing heaven. Instead it recalls the event of man losing the Kingdom government of heaven on earth. Heaven's government authority on earth was temporarily suspended.
As we examine the current conditions throughout the planet it's obvious that we have need of a new form of government and leadership to replace the government of man.
Our current conditions demand a form of government that is superior to any government of man that we now have.
The Kingdom of heaven is the only true source that will address the social and spiritual hunger we are experiencing. Nothing else will satisfy the heart of man. God knows this. Now do you see why it is when he sent us His son Jesus Christ to enter this world, the first proclamation he made was, "The Kingdom of Heaven is near". This ideal kingdom concept meets all the needs of man and provides the greatest benefits for its citizens.
The government of man will always fall short.

Rating 4.5 Stars - American Democracy would be strengthened if every American were encourage to read this book. Its contents and layout would greatly enhance the teaching of US history and government and make Americans remember not only what American democracy is but some idea (over time) how and why it developed as it did.
This balanced book in semi-textbook style systematically lays out the foundations and development of the American nation's political structures and standards. This is the kind of book that might allow people to become more patriotic or at least more understanding about the merits and weaknesses of American government.
