If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: But if ye refuse and rebel,ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it. (Isaiah 1:19-20)
All those who are rebellious as well as those who don’t listen to instruction are in the same boat and will suffer the same fate. Never find yourself on the side of the rebellious. If there’s an issue you have with your leader, try your best to sort it out and if there’s no resolution then leave or quit if it’s a job, then you’ll have the freedom to fight him/her without offending God.
With that said, as believers we need to know and acknowledge that God is our supreme leader hence the previous statement doesn’t apply if obeying your leader means disobeying God. Christianity is 24/7 so the principles and standards of God apply in everything we do.
All leaders, as well as God, hate rebellion. The highest offence in any country is treason. Treason is disobeying orders from the country’s leaders or endangering the country or it’s ruler. and people found guilty are easily given the harshest sentence in that country. Murderers can even be pardoned just to catch a person who committed treason. If you study the Bible you’ll discover that the pharisees accused Jesus of treason and blasphemy. And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying that he himself is Christ a King.( Luke 23:2), Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy. (Matthew 26:65).
A fool despiseth his father’s instruction:but he that regardeth reproof is prudent.(Proverbs 10:5)
It is foolish to be disobedient. When you are given instructions make sure you carry them out to the letter because the price of disobedience is death. Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine. His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. ( Matthew 25:24-30).
If you have not given your life to God you will pay the price because you are committing treason against God because you are rebelling when he calls you. We have sinned, and have committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled, even by departing from thy precepts and from thy judgments:( Daniel 9:5).

Repeat this prayer “LORD JESUS, I COME TO YOU AS A SINNER, I ACCEPT THAT I’M A SINNER AND I BELIEVE THAT YOU CAME TO EARTH AND DIED FOR MY SINS, WASH ME WITH YOUR PRECIOUS BLOOD AND WRITE MY NAME IN THE BOOK OF LIFE.
