The stakes could not be any higher! Hundreds of millions have been spent by each candidate as they vie for the top office of this world. Each contends, in his ego- inflated mind, that he has “answers” to the multiple, massive, INSOLUBLE problems facing this nation. They may be sincere, but mostly it’s about POWER, PRESTIGE AND RECOGNITION. You have to feel a certain amount of sympathy for them, as they continue to debate, argue and wrangle with each other over HOW they would accomplish their goals. It’s easy to get caught up in these political hassles and fights! And they can get fierce! People can have strong feelings about politics.
WHAT IS A TRUE CHRISTIAN’S ROLE IN ALL OF THIS?
I John 2:15 “Love not the world, neither the things (politics, etc.) that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life ( my party is better than your party), is not of the Father, but is of the world.” Jesus Christ made it very plain in: John 18:36 “Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.”
No, we’re not to be caught up in these physical, political harangues and battles of this world! Ephesians 6:11 “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS in high places.”
We can’t become entangled in the PHYSICAL CONFLICTS OF THIS PRESENT EVIL WORLD! (Military, human ideologies or politics) We have a much HIGHER CALLING! Ephesians 1:4 “According as He hath chosen US in Him before the foundation of the world, that WE should be holy and without blame before him in love: Verse 12. That WE should be to the praise of His glory, who first trusted in Christ.”
Finally, it’s God’s prerogative as to whom He will allow or ordain to the Presidential office.
I’ll encourage all of you to read, carefully, studiously and PRAYERFULLY, two chapters in your Bibles that determine the outcome of this upcoming election: IT COULD MAKE A DIFFERENCE WITH GOD, as to the leadership He may provide for this nation!
I’m referring to the “blessings and cursings” chapters of: LEVITICUS 26 AND DEUTERONOMY 28.
We have a loving and merciful God who desires to bless us. What the outcome of all our troubles will be depends on whether we, as a nation OR AS INDIVIDUALS, are willing to repent and turn to the ONLY ONE who can solve our problems.
I really don’t see this nation coming to this national repentance at this time, but they will later under the perfect Government of our Savior and soon coming King, Jesus Christ. We should all be praying, Thy Kingdom Come.
