These people enter the story and then seem to disappear. Or they quietly labor and only get a brief mention. They are the behind the scenes people who make a big impact with minimal mention. Some even got to share in the persecution and jailings!
An Important Issue. You will hear people say, that the government of the church is a relatively trivial matter, not something over which loving Christians should worry or argue.

Are you just a sinner who has been forgiven? Do you have 2 natures inside you—one bad, one good—constantly at war? Do you feel you are constantly feeding that 'big dog' of sin? We are no longer slaves! The old man has been crucified. And Christ IS our life, not just IN our life. Dig into this transforming truth.

Two More Attributes of Kingship: Power and Pardon. Jesus exhibited power over defilement, distance, disease, over the sea and the wind, over demons, over death, over blindness, over muteness. A king can also withhold His power.
He also exercised true deity in pardoning sinners. Likewise, You and I were once criminals. Have you received His pardon? Just gotta ask. Are you happy that He has pardoned that prickly neighbor of yours? I hope so. Often not.

I’ve got news for you. Jesus didn’t come to take political sides, He came to take over!
~Jesus isn’t part of a political platform. He isn’t an allowed activity by govt. Gov doesn’t give Him permission to be worshipped. Jesus isn’t one of your civil rights! He came to take over!
~He didn’t come to be ‘one of many ways’ to spiritual enlightenment. He came to take over!
~Jesus didn’t come to be an activity on Sunday mornings for you. He came to take over!

A tremendous amount of religious and political infrastructure has to be created before an insurrection happens. Injustice must become so great that people just can’t stand for it anymore. The established rule will feign offense while underhandedly working against justice. They will pervert established law to create a means to their desired end. There is nothing new under the sun.
Let’s look at the historical ‘Make Jerusalem Great Again’ campaign.

We are tasked to speak in Christ and of Christ. —Regardless of the social climate. Christians are smelly and the people in the world are the smellers. What are they smelling on us? Do you have a fragrance? Yes! You do.
We are spritzers of Christ-fragrance. 2 Corinthians 2:14-17

Back in 1000 B.C., a scrawny young man came up to his nation's army hiding in fear of a loud-mouthed giant. They were frozen.
This young man decided this was young to be the day of action. He had character (1 Samuel 17).
The battle is the Lord's but He uses people. Someone had to speak. Throw the stone. The difference between "..one day I'm gonna.." and "...this is the day..."
Speak your faith to the giants.
