Examining fruits may be the easiest way to determine a government's or ruler's father. If, according to good fruit, the father is Yahweh, if bad fruit, the father is Satan. If you are connected to the vine, you will know in your heart and rightly judge.
Here are fruits of government. Some governments will score better than others, some worse - you decide.
Man's governments (all of them) use force. This force is used if subjects disobey. The amount of force applied is directly proportional to the control of Satan, who is the god of force (Daniel 11:38). Yahweh's government, is instead, based on service (Mark 10:42-45).
All governments use coercion (misnamed law, when only Yahweh's law is true law) to get their way. The amount of coercion is directly proportional to the control of Satan.
All governments use extortion. Subjects must pay to obtain rights or privileges or permissions or franchise. The amount of extortion required is directly proportional to the control of Satan.
All governments use theft (sometimes misnamed taxation, sometimes misnamed taking children for their own protection, sometimes misnamed civil seizure or asset forfeiture, sometimes misnamed wealth redistribution). The amount of theft is directly proportional to the control of Satan.
Many governments kill people. This is often misnamed "war" but sometimes is direct and unhidden. The amount of killing is directly proportional to the control of Satan.
Many governments kidnap and imprison people against their will. If this is done without the "prisoner" breaking LAW (Yahweh's law) and is merely for code violations including victimless "crimes" it is theft of the body.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
Absence of Fruits of the Spirit are directly proportional to the control of Satan.
And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, Yahweh: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
The breaking of Yahweh's law by government or its rulers is directly proportional to the control of Satan.
Satan is the father of most governments. As father, he influences his sons to do his will. This results in war, famine, pain, suffering, misery, unhappiness, discontent, lawlessness, and all of the ills of this world. These governments serve as direct proxies to do the will of their father - Satan.
Come out of Babylon. Leave Satan's kingdoms. Enter and remain firmly in the Kingdom of Yahweh. Adopt Yahweh as your Father and He will adopt you as His sons and daughters.
