I keep seeing people’s posts wherein they suggest “God will put HIS candidate in office.” I believe that’s totally false for several reasons – the first one being that the USA, for the most part, is not Torah observant. Very few even bother to keep YHWH’s commanded Seventh Day Sabbath (which is a SIGN between YHWH and His people - Exodus 31:16-17, Ezekiel 20:11-12) or the Mo’edim; not to mention, we are a pork and shellfish-eating nation, obsessed especially with bacon! (And when you try to explain why certain foods are "unclean" according to Scripture, you get people down your throat to tell you, “Jesus abolished all that!” or “That’s just Old Testament stuff.”)
I would even venture to say that most are NOT believers in YHWH or Yeshua,
anyway – because if they were, they would walk as Yeshua did (1 John 2:6). And
HOW did he “walk”? In TORAH!
Matthew 5: 17 Don’t think that I have come to abolish the Torah or the
Prophets. I have come not to abolish but to complete. 18 Yes indeed! I tell you
that until heaven and earth pass away, not so much as a yud or a stroke will
pass from the Torah – not until everything that must happen has happened. 19 So
whoever disobeys the least of these mitzvot and teaches others to do so will be
called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But whoever obeys them and so
teaches will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven. 20 For I tell you that
unless your righteousness is far greater than that of the Torah-teachers and
P'rushim, you will certainly not enter the Kingdom of Heaven! (CJB)
QUESTION: Has everything that "must happen" happened yet? Have
"heaven and earth passed away? If not, then it seems believers are
supposed to BE Torah observant today! The verse in Matthew 5:17-20 that says:
"So whoever disobeys the least of these mitzvot and teaches others to do
so will be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven" is a major key,
because it is talking about YHWH's commands!
What commands are they? TORAH commands - which still stand today ... and WE
are obligated, as believers, to keep those that we can! We need to pay special
attention to to those that have the word "forever" or
"throughout your generations" attached to them. Why? Because
"forever" hasn't ended yet! Not to mention, "fulfill" never
meant "to put an end to." It means, Yeshua came to do His Father's
will and to fulfill "the next thing on the agenda".....
Sure, we CLAIM to be a “Judeo-Christian” nation, but yet we, as a whole, are
tolerant of blatant sinning. I mean, we have a President who lauds
homosexuality and abortion; and he keeps praising a religion that has spawned
an entire generation of terrorists who are literally holding the world hostage!
Did YHWH put that guy into office? I think not! YHWH cares about HIS
people…those who obey His commands; not those who willingly and deliberately
ignore them, or pick and choose which ones they want to follow.
"His people" today seem to be few and far in between; tiny voices
crying out in the desert. We are viewed as "kooks" in a sea of
"religion and religiosity" - mere irritants in a world dominated by
theology and opinion where decadence is king and everyone is encouraged to
And yes, we see in places like Numbers 11:16-17 that YHWH at one time
personally chose the leaders HE wanted for Israel, but that’s because He had
the entire nation of Israel in the wilderness learning to follow HIM! Do WE
follow Him today? Nope....
YHWH has been allowing mankind the free will to CHOOSE, ever since Adam and
Eve were kicked out of the Garden. And mankind keeps on failing - in part,
because we don't look to Scripture for guidance; we don't use "common
sense"; and we keep choosing leaders who in NO WAY uphold YHWH’s rules.
Not even close.
