The race for US President - why can't Americans quit voting for evil?

I was truly shocked to discover that Ben Carson (the candidate I actually liked the most because of his quiet, common-sense demeanor and his wise, extremely intelligent comments and seemingly broad knowledge of Scripture) has endorsed Donald Trump. (Chris Christie endorsed him a couple of weeks ago, but that really wasn’t any great surprise, for Trump and Christie seem to be cut from the same mold. But Carson surprised me. I guess he and Christie are going to compete for the Vice-Presidency…) 

So, here’s my bottom line upfront: If Dr. Carson (whom I erroneously believed to be a godly man!) or any other believer can honestly find redeeming value in a megalomaniac narcissist who cusses, bullies people, incites fights and arguments and pokes fun at women and invalids and generally proves he has noclue about God and the Bible – that “believer” had better double check to see WHOM he or she actually worships, for YHWH constantly commanded HIS people to stay away from evil! (Here are just 20 verses to remind us.)

It’s no secret that America has been in trouble for many years, mainly because we have gotten so far away from God, that we resemble nothing of the spotless Bride He is looking for - the one Yeshua purchased with his own blood. (Please see Acts 20:28, Ephesians 1:12-14, Ephesians 5:21-33, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 and 1 Peter 1:18-19.) Most seem to be “lukewarm” and “wishy-washy” at best, going with whatever flow tickles their particular fancy. It is becoming more and more obvious that most are simply NOT serious about God and the Bible.

And most, it seems, have opted to take that WIDE gate (Matthew 7:13-14) that leads to destruction. It seems their own will/desire to see our country dug out from under the muck of the last 50 years of “so-so” and downright “bad” leadership (except for maybe Kennedy and Reagan), has caused them to lose their ability to see the “bigger picture”.... What "bigger picture?" The one where YHWH (who is surely beyond sick and tired of being ignored, as most don’t seem interested in OBEDIENCE) causes Yeshua to return as the Lion of Judah – who will be vomiting out all the “lukewarm” (Revelation 3:16) …those who insist on kicking God in the face and using human logic and determination to make their decisions. Who today, is truly living for HIM? Very few….

Trump has single-handedly turned the American race for the White House into a three-ring circus! Gone are the days where mature adults ran for President - those who stood on their merits and achievements to win constituents rather than stooping to rude and childish behavior and ad hominem attacks. (I’ve noticed a huge increase in this type of behavior during my lifetime – especially since the Sixties when Americans allowed a few atheists to oust God from schools and government buildings, etc. This particular Presidential race has been a roaring witness of how far Americans have strayed from YHWH in just the last 50 years!)

I don’t see a good outcome for us at all, especially since so many so-called “believers” today cannot be differentiated from unbelievers…Myriads of believers today are tolerant of sin; they pick and choose what to believe of Scripture, and they certainly don’t seem to see anything wrong with promoting or voting for EVIL! They cannot see that the Books of Daniel and Revelation have literally been unfolding before our eyes for many years now BECAUSE of our endless rebellion against YHWH’s Divine Rules. Instead of running toward YHWH and His Kingdom, they have closed their hearts and minds toward Him and are taking matters into their own hands. …The same thing happened in Noah’s day – and we all know THAT ended!

  1. Shali, what about Trump viewing Russia and Vladimir Putin as an ally against ISIS?

    1. Good question! From what we've seen so far, Russia isn't exactly working against ISIS, but rather FOR Assad....

      Putin and Trump are too much alike to get along. They're both egotistic and arrogant and if Trump becomes President, feathers will quickly be ruffled on both sides, with neither of the leaders backing down.

  2. I completely agree.I have taken to watching the news with an eye on prophecy. So very many things the world over seem to be coming to a head. I am not worried or afraid just fascinated by how quickly things are moving. Bo Yeshua Bo!

    Attention: For this post, I am calling out ONLY all Bible-believing Jews and Christians! That excludes those traditional Jews and Christians who, by and large, do not believe in and/or honor the Word of Elohim!
    .
    So please therefore, understand that the two or three questions in this post are being asked ONLY of true Bible-believing Jews and Christians! If you are neither, then please understand that the following two or three questions are definitely not being asked of you! Okay? Here goes!
    .
    1. Is it acceptable before the Living Elohim … for an Elohim-honoring Bible-believing Jew or Christian to justify himself (or herself) by backing someone who clearly has no regard for either YAHWEH or His Word (by using some lame excuse; such as: ‘oh well, we’re electing a ‘president’; not a pastor of the U.S.’)? But what does the Bible have to say about that kind of justification? The Bible says that:
    .
    “The Elohim of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spoke to me, ‘He who rules over men MUST BE JUST, RULING IN THE FEAR OF ELOHIM” (2 Samuel 23:3) [emphasis mine].
    .
    “Moreover you shall provide out of all the people ABLE men, SUCH AS FEAR ELOHIM, men of TRUTH, HATING COVETOUSNESS; and PLACE SUCH OVER THEM, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens (Exodus 18:21) [emphasis mine].
    .
    In other words, character, trustworthiness, people of high moral integrity, and a PROVEN RECORD of (Godly) COURAGE AND HONOR … do indeed count before a Holy and Just Elohim … when elevating such people into high public office! Right? But why?
    .
    “That the hypocrite does not reign, lest the people be ensnared” (Job 34:30) [emphasis mine].
    .
    “As a roaring lion, and a raging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people” (Proverbs 28:15) [emphasis mine].
    .
    2. What else does the Word of Elohim have to say about righteous rulers vis-à-vis wicked rulers of a nation?
    .
    “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked bear rule, the people mourn” (Proverbs 29:2) [emphasis mine].
    .
    Why? Because: “Righteousness exalts a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs 14:34) [emphasis mine].
    .
    And (moreover): “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget Elohim” (Psalm 9:17) [emphasis mine].
    .
    Finally, in addition to this, our founding fathers, by and large, based the U.S. Constitution on Biblical moral principles. And just one of those founders (for example) expressed this fact as follows:
    .
    "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other" (John Adams).
    .
    There are so many more questions (and Biblical responses) – way too many for here; but these two or three will have to do for now! Thanks for ‘listening’!

  4. The path for the anti-Christ is being paved and a man who makes "deals" will be in power to set up the deal between Israel and Ishmael and the giving up of lands. Donald? Maybe. Bernie? More likely since the anti "will not worship the God of his fathers". Bernie is a secular Jew who believes Ishmael/Palestinians/Arabs should receive part of Israel. Shali and Liam have pointed out in various articles that when this person comes and accomplishes the deal the time period for the 7 years until the return of Y'shua begins. I do not believe a man or woman of God will become POTUS ever again. We are waiting for the return of our Lord and King. If, you are a believer you can feel it in your bones and see it in the air waves. It is the last breath of an enemy vanquished 2,000 years or so ago.
