ELECTION 2016, We continue to Cast Our Fate to the Winds.
Based on the emails that continue to be forwarded to me by my brothers and sisters in Christ; there seems to be a vast difference between the way we think!
It is an election year again. Once again the country is in emotional turmoil. The cry from the valleys to the mountains is “CHANGE”. Once again the two parties put forth their candidates. Once again the HOT issues of the day are put onto the stove tops across our country to cook in preparation for the meal we will be fed for the next 4 years.
The issues are like water that we cannot grasp with our hands. Issues we only seem to be able to understand as we watch them boil like water in a pot. The pot is our country and the water represents our issues. Again, in election 2016 as the temperature increases, the differences between us burst forth like venom.
The issues of the day are everywhere in the mouths of everyone. We need, we demand clarity in the answers from the candidates. Yet the rhetoric that comes forth from the mouths of the candidates, as always, speak to the issues so broadly that their substance is lacking.
It’s like pouring perfume on a swine. The pig still stinks; it’s just that our noses only smell the perfume. The candidate’s agenda’s sound good because they each are trying to appeal to all the issues we as diverse individuals hold dear. As these issues begin to boil in the pot of water on our stoves so do they separate us as individuals based on how those issues affect us personally.
Our points of view are different and so are the causes we support and care about. Yes we each need to vote it is both our civic duty as well as what God calls us to do. But, no matter who wins you will find that you will not be satisfied with what comes next. The reason is simple; the control of this planet and its nations and cultures is still and always will be rooted in an ongoing struggle of GREED and POWER. It is self-evident in the struggle between nations and the struggle within nations.
Democracy is a grand idea that will never work well because the stumbling block is still the darkened heart of mankind. So what are your issues…the price of gas, your home, the food you eat, your 401 K retirement future?
What about others like the poor, the homeless, the widows, the orphans, the mentally ill, the out of control youth culture, the aged who wait only to die and those in the womb who die prematurely. Or maybe for you it’s the environment, pollution, the animals, the flora and fauna…Global Warming.
What about war between countries far away from us that soon may ignite a firestorm that will consume you and all your issues, that you cannot do anything about…. regardless of who gets into office.
God said through the Palmist in Psalm 53:1…”The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” And that is exactly who the majority are that live in this country.
Whether you agree with me about what I am going to say makes absolutely no difference. Yes, there are Believers in Christ in this country but they are the few, they are the remnant, but this country is no longer a Christian Country. Our society proves beyond any doubt that God has abandoned the United States to reap the consequences of its immoral and Godless actions.
I have received countless forwarded emails from faithful believers during campaign 2016 about who and what I need to vote for unless I want to see darkness overtake this country and the world we live in. Do not all of you understand that the United States of America is NOT the hope of the world! Neither is Trump or Clinton.
Jesus Christ ALONE is the HOPE of this World.
God has abandoned this planet to the consequences of its SIN’S. God has also abandoned ALL NATIONS on the face of the earth including ours and the nation of Israel to the consequences of its sins. BUT, GOD has not abandoned His Children that BELIEVE in HIM through HIS SON JESUS ! ! !
We have been living in the end times since the death and resurrection of Christ 2,000 years ago. Back then Jesus told us about both the coming judgment of people who do not know HIM as Savior and the end of the earth as we know it and the creation of a new Eternal Earth where sin is no more. A new earth made up of every nation, tribe and tongue…All ruled by the God who created them. It will not be a democracy. It will be a Theocracy as it was originally intended to be.
When Jesus spoke it was the beginning of the end times. The difference is that we are now at the end of the end times. Look around you, read the papers, listen to the empty talking heads on the Television or Radio news or the country’s leadership in Hollywood.
Man thought he was ascending the evolutionary ladder, when in fact man has been descending on his way back to the dust God created him from since his fall in the Garden of Eden.
The election is important and we as believers are called to cast our votes for the best person to lead us. But know well that whoever becomes our next president will be the man that God intended, not the one you necessarily wanted. God is still on HIS THRONE and God is in control, He alone allows people into power to bring to pass the events He has shown us in His Pre-Written History called Prophecy.
The end of the story as I have written about before is both Bitter and Sweet. The question is whether your story will continue to be ETERNALLY SWEET or ETERNALLY BITTER ? ? ?
