GOD AND THE ELECTION; Did you win or lose?

we the people
Many Americans felt shattered when the election didn’t go the way they had prayed. “What happened?” they asked. “Doesn’t God answer prayer?”

First, we know that :

•  The Most High rules in the kingdom of men and gives it (government) to whomever he chooses (Daniel 4:32).

•  God raises up one and pulls down another (Psalm 75:7).

•  The authorities that exist are appointed by God (Romans 13:1).

A Choice and a Voice

In many nations the people have no choice of their rulers, but in a democracy we, the people, choose our leaders. The government we have is the government we deserve, because we have chosen it.

So the question arises, does God intervene in a democratic election? Good question.

But there’s a difference between intervention (stepping in to rescue) and interference (butting in to change an outcome.)

God’s people can pray that he will intervene by revealing truth and exposing corruption and thus provide a level playing field.

We believe that God does not interfere in an election, but watches for the nation to choose whose side they are on, the righteous or the unrighteous, and then responds based on that choice, in either blessing or judgment.

Making it Official

Most election issues don’t concern right or wrong, but differences of opinion over ways of government. We won’t discuss those here.

But in the last few election cycles, life-or-death, good-or-evil, moral issues have been enshrined in our two political parties’ official platforms, so that a person could say, “I am for abortion on demand, special rights for homosexuals, including redefining family and marriage, to mention a couple; so I am a Democrat.”

Or: “I am against these things, therefore I am a Republican.” Therefore, in the voting booth, the choice is spelled out clearly for us.

So God, instead of interfering and giving advantage to one side or the other, watches to see how the people of the nation respond.

Blessings or Curses?

In Deuteronomy 28 God promised Israel: If you will obey me, all these blessings will come upon you and overtake you; but if you will not obey me, then all these curses will come upon you and overtake you.

God has said to America, “Choose this day whom you will serve,” and America has made her choice, and the whole world will be affected by it.

It was not just the presidency at stake, but governors, legislators, school boards, city councils, judges, and others.

For instance, the new president will make two or probably more lifetime Supreme Court appointments, which must be confirmed by the Senate. Will they allow and promote more and more of the things God has forbidden?

Donald Trump has promised to appoint justices in the mold of Anton Scalia, who will interpret our Constitution according to what it originally meant.

If the liberals had achieved their purpose:

•  Your Christian freedom of speech could have been severely curtailed.

•  Pastors could be punished for publicly reading certain scriptures or preaching on moral issues. (See for example Romans chapter 1 and 1 Corinthians 6:9-10.)

•  Christian universities could be stripped of their accreditation or tax exemption for refusing to obey the dictates of a rogue Court.

•  Your freedom to raise your children according to your beliefs and protect them from ungodly indoctrination could have been compromised.

•  The slaughter of the unborn could have been even more firmly locked in place, where now there is a good chance of its being overturned.

Do these things seem too far-fetched?  Some of them have already been happening. And more.

•  People have lost their jobs and businesses for refusing to violate their conscience.

•  Christian adoption agencies, including the Catholic Diocese of Boston, have had to shut down rather than place children in homosexual homes.

•  Military chaplains have been fired for praying in Jesus’ name. And Christian witnessing (“proselytizing”) among the troops, even by chaplains, has in some cases been criminalized.

Which Way Now, America?

A great battle has been won, not only in the voting booth, but also in the heavenlies. But the war goes on. The work of the intercessor continues. The enemy will yet contend fiercely for the hearts and minds of our elected and appointed leaders, and for the soul of our nation.

Will our government officially move us toward, or further away from righteousness? God is watching, and he will respond, for better or worse, on the basis of our response to his rulership. 

What calamities might it take to make us aware, as a nation, of our need to return to the safety of his protection? Slouching out from under that protecting hand is a fearsome thing in this nuclear/jihadist age. And what will it take for us, the Church in America, to rise up and restore righteousness in our land?

We have not elected an evangelical leader, but a friend of the church who has surrounded himself with godly advisors, and who promises to help restore our freedoms lost during years of increasingly antagonistic governance. It’s a start.

Now, ask yourself again—Did I win or lose?

DEAR JIM AND CAROL OWENS

I WAS SAVED IN 1971 IN THE JESUS MOVEMENT…YOUR DAUGHTER JAMIE WAS MY FAVORITE MUSIC ARTIST.

I’M ASKING AND PRAYING FOR A BIG FAVOR.

PLEASE LET ME POST “IF MY PEOPLE”
WHICH I BOUGHT FROM YOU.

LET ME POST IT (ON MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL)
FOR THE PURPOSE OF CALLING THE LUKE WARM BODY OF CHRIST TO REPENTANCE OF SIN AND FOR THE HEALING OF THE NATION….ALSO FOR THE PURPOSE OF INSPIRING THE GATHERING OF THE FINAL HARVEST BEFORE THE TRIBULATION PERIOD BEGINS

THE “IF MY PEOPLE” ALBUM APPLIES MUCH MORE TODAY IN THESE PERILIOUS TIMES THAN WHEN IT WAS FIRST MADE…..IN FACT IT IS PERFECTLY PROPHETIC OF THE TIMES WE ARE LIVING IN NOW.

IF YOU LET ME POST THE ALBUM
I WILL POST A LINK TO YOUR WEBSITE SHOULD PEOPLE WANT TO BUY FROM YOU.

GOD HAS DONE SOMETHING RATHER MIRACULOUS IN RAISING UP DONALD TRUMP AS OUR NEW PRESIDENT WHICH WAS A VIRTUAL IMPOSSIBLITY IN THE NATURAL ….AS SATANIC ILLUMINATI BANKS RUN THIS PRESENT EVIL WORLD.

HILARY WAS AS YOU KNOW ONE OF THE MOST CORRUPT POLITICIANS EVER TO DISGRACE OUR LAND…..EVEN PRACTICING DEVIL WORSHIP, MURDER AND NECROMANCY,  AND MANY OTHER LAWLESS DEEDS….AS WIKI LEAKS EXPOSED.

IF SHE HAD BEEN ELECTED HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF MILITANT MUSLIMS WOULD HAVE POURED INTO THE COUNTRY…..RAPING WOMEN AND KILLING MANY INCLUDING CHRISTIANS……ALSO SHE WAS ABOUT TO START WW3 FOR HER ILUMINATI BACKERS….

THE CURRENT UNREST THAT HAS COME FORTH FROM AMERICAN COLLEGE CAMPUSES INCLUDING SUCH GROUPS AS BLACK LIVES MATTER IS FUNDED BY BILLIONARE GEORGE SOROS TO RACIALLY DIVIDE AMERICA  

YES, THESE ARE THE LAST OF THE LAST DAYS……AND ALTHOUGH AMERICA IS PROBABLY MYSTERY BABYLON.

(IN THE FUTURE GOD MAY GIVE HIS CALL TO COME OUT OF HER PHYSICALLY THAT WE BE NOT PARTAKER OF HER PLAGUES)
OR WE GO THROUGH THE FIRE AS THE THREE HEBREWS IN DANIEL….ALSO SEE PSALM 91.

ANYWAY

BEFORE THE CHURCH COMES OUT HER PHYSICALLY….THE LORD MUST BRING US OUT OF BABYLON SPIRITUALLY FIRST…..

THE WHITE HORSE RIDER I THINK IS DECEPTION…AND THE FIREY RED HORSE RIDER I THINK IS NUCLEAR WAR

WHICH MAY HAVE POSTPONED DUE TO TRUMP ELECTION

I THINK GOD HAS GIVEN HIS ELECT IN AMERICA A TEMPORARY REPRIEVE…..

THE GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM OF THE KINGDOM STILL HAS TO BE PREACHED.

MATTHEW 24:12-14
  12   And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come……THE END = THE GREAT TRIBULATION

CHECK THIS OUT….THREE WITNESSES

FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION….SKIP DOWN TO HENRY GRUVER

ISAIAH 55:1-3
  1   Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

  2   Wherefore do ye spend money for [that which is] not bread? and your labour for [that which] satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye [that which is] good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, [even] the sure mercies of David.

IN CHRIST JESUS
