God is the creator of everything, and His laws are justly placed over all His domain including every person who ever lived and will live. As real as the government of each country has authority over its inhabitants, God has authority over everyone.
His laws are just and for the good of all mankind. Like traitors who rebel against their own nation, the vast majority of this world will not bow to His authority.
Romans 3:5-20 (NKJV)
5 But if our unrighteousness demonstrates the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unjust who inflicts wrath? (I speak as a man.)
6 Certainly not! For then how will God judge the world?
7 For if the truth of God has increased through my lie to His glory, why am I also still judged as a sinner?
8 And why not say, "Let us do evil that good may come"?--as we are slanderously reported and as some affirm that we say. Their condemnation is just.
9 What then? Are we better than they? Not at all. For we have previously charged both Jews and Greeks that they are all under sin.
10 As it is written: "There is none righteous, no, not one;
11 There is none who understands; There is none who seeks after God.
12 They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is none who does good, no, not one."
13 "Their throat is an open tomb; With their tongues they have practiced deceit"; "The poison of asps is under their lips";
14 "Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness."
15 "Their feet are swift to shed blood;
16 Destruction and misery are in their ways;
17 And the way of peace they have not known."
18 "There is no fear of God before their eyes."
19 Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.
20 Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die in our place to pay for all our lawbreaking and rebellion. His blood fully paid for all people's crimes, legally giving everyone the opportunity to become an adopted child of God.
But, those who refuse must be brought to justice for such grave criminal activity. None are right before God, all are convicted criminals.
Soon Christ will actually return to earth and this time bring judgment to all sinners. God's word warns us all that when that day comes it will be capital punishment for the wicked and the beginning of heaven on earth for the saints.
