Obey them that have the rule over you? Really!! It’s time to cast off the oppressive shackles sleepy church

Obey them that have the rule over you, is a phrase that many Christian leaders utilize for the justification of a hierarchy in order to control others.

In this message, we will analyze several verses, and provide links to essential articles in order to uncover the conspiracy to commit spiritual fraud at the hands of the false teachers within the Christian churches.

Heb 13:7 Remember them that have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.

It will be necessary to analyze several groups of words, as well as the entire verse in context to the chapter, in order to understand the true meaning of Heb 13:7.

The following seven words, them that have the rule over you, actually refer to just two words. Those words are translated as rule, and you.

  • Heb 13:7 Remember <G3421> them that have the rule <G2233> over you <G5216>

We can safely remove the words (them that have the), from this verse and thus eliminate the possibility that reference is made to a group of people.

The Greek word (hēgeomai G2233) is translated as chief, governor, rule and several other words.  

By comparing the word rule (hēgeomai) used in Heb 13:7, and chief (hēgeomai) which is used in Luke 22:26, it is also clear that this verse is not in reference to men ruling over others.

The word over, can also be eliminated from Heb 13:7.

Luke 22:25-26 And he said unto them, The rulers of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors. But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.

The act of men becoming rulers and exercising control over, or subjugating others was not a practice that the true followers of Jesus would engage in.

Them that have the rule over you

Matt 20:25-26 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the rulers of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them. But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister

  • Heb 13:7…who <G3748> have spoken <G2980> unto you <G5213> the word <G3056> of God <G2316>

Next, we need to determine who it is that speaks unto you.

Heb 1:1-2 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spoke in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds

Jesus Himself spoke to the people during the time of His first advent.

1 Cor 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Ghost teaches; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

God was manifest in the flesh. Jesus came forth from God, and it would be the Holy Spirit that would teach or speak after that He returned unto the Father (John 8:42, 16:27-30, John 14:26, 15:26).

John 15:3-4 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

The very Word of God speaks to the elect who have not been blinded by the frauds operating as pastors whose goal it is to control others and keep them from the Spirit of truth.

Remember who governs you, and who speaks to you the Word of God. Yahshua (Jesus) who is the Word of God, by means of His Holy Spirit speaks to and through the Elect who have been sealed by that same Spirit.

Mark 13:11 But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.

  • Heb 13:7…whose <G3739> faith <G4102> follow <G3401>

To assume that this is a reference to following after the faith of men is beyond ludicrous.

Mark 11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.

It is not at all difficult to explain the lack of true faith these days. When men are conditioned to trust in others and when those others are professional conmen, faith is all but destroyed. The end result of this trickery and deceit is self-righteousness, and ultimately death.

Luke 18:8-9 Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others

Whose faith are we to follow? Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith (Heb 12:2).

Acts 20:21 Testifying both to the Judeans, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.

  • Heb 13:7…considering <G333> the end <G1545> of their conversation <G391>  Jesus <G2424> Christ <G5547>…

Obviously, we can lose the word their, as this is a personal message to each believer.

The word that is translated as conversation, also refers to our behavior.

To place a period at the end of Heb 13:7, is to separate the end result of a faithful conversation which is Jesus Christ (1 Peter 1:15, Heb 13:8).

  • Heb 13:7-8 Remember <G3421> them that have the rule <G2233> over you <G5216>, who <G3748> have spoken <G2980> unto you <G5213> the word <G3056> of God <G2316>: whose <G3739> faith <G4102> follow <G3401>, considering <G333> the end <G1545> of their conversation <G391>Jesus <G2424> Christ <G5547> the same <G846> yesterday <G5504>, and <G2532> to day <G4594>, and <G2532> for <G1519> ever <G165>.


There are obvious misleading words inserted into this verse, but through the power of the Holy Spirit, we are able to rightly and correctly uncover the Word of truth (2 Tim 2:15).

Remember your leaders who taught you the word of God. Think of all the good that has come from their lives, and follow the example of their faith (Heb 13:7 NLT).

This new living translation of Heb 13:7, is not even worthy of any commentary except for a single word,rubbish. However, it gets much worse as we read on a little farther in this chapter.

So what is the context of Hebrews chapter thirteen?

  • Through the power of Jesus, we need not fear the evils deeds of men.

  • Our helper is the Holy Spirit.

  • We are to remember the Word of God that speaks to us.

  • We must follow Jesus Christ, and submit to the one true God who is worthy of our praise.

  • To follow after men is a recipe for destruction, and we need to avoid their deadly doctrines of deceit (1 Peter 2:21).

  • Christ alone watches over and is, in fact, the Sheperd of our souls. To allow a false teacher to watch over your soul represents the definition of a Christian Cult.

  • The end result of a real and lasting faith is the Salvation of our souls (1 Peter 1:9).

Matt 16:24-25 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.  For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

No Christian preacher is to ever exercise lordship over those he is presenting the gospel message to.

 them that have the rule over you

Mark 10:42-43 But Jesus called them to him, and saith unto them, Ye know that they which are accounted to rule over the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and their great ones exercise authority upon them. But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister

The correct usage of the word reign or rule is found in the following verse. The true definition of reign…

    Ban all religion. That is the only way anyone will ever advance spiritually. Religion has proven over thousands of years that it is a total fraud, just like all of the Robed Peds hiding behind the church walls.
