Stand up saints!
This coming November USA election, as any election, will tell the world where our heart truly is.
Proverbs 29:2 – “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.”
The word wicked comes from Dutch wiek and German Wieche = ‘wick yarn.’ In other words to twist, to spin, and to weave.
The righteous, those who are in right relationship with God, have a moral responsibility to vote out of office anyone who is wicked – those who twist the truth, who spin the truth and who weave deception, and vote into office those who represent what is true and honorable, and what is in line with our Founding Documents.
If the true Christian community would allow Scripture to guide them when they vote and not what the media tells them, or what some greedy, self-absorbed politician tells them, we would not have renegade politicians and judges writing and dictating laws that are in violation of our Constitution.
It is time for the sleeping giant called the Church to exercise her God-given authority – the legal right to publicly act on His behalf.
Verse 14 – “Stand firm therefore” ~ What are you there for? To stand for truth. To stand firm in spite of outside pressures whatever the source.
Acts 2:14 – “But Peter, taking his stand with the eleven”. When the church unites the world will be turned upside down, actually turned back right side up.
One of David’s men took a stand in a lentil field and defeated the Philistines – all by himself [2 Samuel 23:11,12].
YOUR life counts!
YOUR one vote counts!
What do YOU stand for?
Who do YOU stand for?
It is past time for the righteous to take this country back from the wicked.
The popular pop culture icons, and those media pundits who are anti God and anti Christ Jesus should not be determining what we think or do or how we vote.
The apostle Paul said this in 2 Corinthians 5:16a – “Therefore, from now on we recognize no one according to the flesh.” There is that word ‘therefore’ again.
“Therefore, from now on”. Just because we did something a certain way in the past does not mean we should continue to do it that way from now on.
“According to the flesh” means according to their outward appearance [gender, color of skin, the way they present themselves, what they say, etc.]
We should look at their life not their image!
Jesus said we should judge people, and that we would know people by their fruit.
One way to look at the life of a politician or judge is to examine their record [their fruit].
- How do they vote?
- What decisions have they made?
- Have they voted to enslave people to the government?
- Have they empowered people to become great apart from the government?
- Have they rendered decisions that protect people’s freedoms or have they rendered decisions that restrict people’s ability to achieve greatness by their individual gifts, pursuits, hard work?
- Have they made laws or rendered decisions that create a dependency on the government, which is really a dependency on the tax payers because the government does not generate income – they seize it through taxation.
- Have the decisions they make given us taxation without representation? In other words, are we getting what we are paying for or have the politicians created a caste system here in the USA?
- Have their decisions enabled the citizens to self-govern [be personally responsible for their actions]?
I used the word ‘pundit’ earlier in this blog. Pundit and ‘pandit’ have the same origin. A pandit is a Hindu scholar learned in Sanskrit and Hindu philosophy and religion, typically also a practicing priest.
This blog is not about Hinduism so I will be brief. Hinduism is a pantheistic [many gods] religious belief system that enslaves the masses, except the privileged who have reached a higher level of ascendancy. It is built on a caste system and teaches reincarnation [there is no death and then the judgment, you keep coming back as another person or animal until you are cleansed and reach nirvana].
Christianity believes in inner conversion. Hinduism believes in inner enlightenment. Christianity believes in individual responsibility. Hinduism believes individuality is an illusion [we are real but we are not distinct from God or from one another].
If you would do a cursory study of this insidious cult you will find how our renegade leaders are establishing a political and intellectual elite class [caste] that has every intention on enslaving the rest of us by utilizing some of these teachings.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting to get a different result.
How is the way we have determined our candidates worked out for us?
For HIS Glory!
