Please help me understand something: If, as so many of my FB friends espouse, "God put HIS candidate into office," then why did WE have to vote? Did He cause some kind of a sleep to fall over us and force us to vote for either of the two UNGODLY candidates we had to choose from? Hmmm...Maybe He did - after all, He did cause Pharaoh to be hard-hearted enough to end up having to deal with Ten Plagues while still being forced to let YHWH's people go.... (Note that YHWH made the pagan Pharoah hard-hearted; NOT the godly Moshe. Please think about that.)
But, in essence, what you're all suggesting (in some cases, with sledge-hammer in hand) is that YHWH Himself condones and lauds evil and makes HIS people laud and desire evil, too, just so they can end up voting for "His candidate." If that's the case, then He also CAUSED Eve to listen to the serpent (after all, He CREATED the serpent…hmmmm) so that we could all become these ungodly, evil people who choose "the world" over YHWH every single day; and He CAUSED Cain to kill Abel, and He CAUSED Lot's wife to "look back" just so she could be turned into a pillar of salt so that Lot would become a widower who would eventually have sex with his own daughters....
In other words, our ELOHIM is a masochist who did NOT give us "free will" or brains with which to choose good over bad, and ungodly candidates over those who try their best to walk in Torah. He was only kidding in those tons of scriptures where He commands us to shun evil of any kind.
Has it ever occurred to anyone that He is busy separating the sheep from the goats - especially in these end times in which we are living? (See Matthew 25:31–46) He knows and sees all, and nobody is ever going to convince me that He WANTS us to choose ungodly leaders. We’re getting exactly what this ungodly nation has been asking for, for decades now, ever since we kicked God out of schools and government.
Do you honestly believe He WANTED us to "choose evil" and sit around twisting Scripture and trying to justify evil behavior... especially when we have the CHOICE to NOT vote "for" evil? Yes, as American citizens we have a DUTY to vote, but since when does our duty to MAN override our duty to YHWH/Yeshua?
Shali, it's amazing how people distort, skew, tweak and twist Scripture to suit their beliefs, thoughts and views. May people repent and come to YHWH before it's too late and recognize who YHWH says He is (Deuteronomy 6:4; Yeshayahu 40-46).ReplyDelete
Kevin, you are so wise.... :) It's truly hard to find anyone who is whole-hearted toward God.Delete
I realize that even as a believer, I still have trials and shortcomings but I learn lessons and do my best to obey and honor YHWH. I agree with you from an earlier post that it's rare to find people who want to hear Scriptural Truth.Delete
Agreed. I don't see how anyone thought that either of them was a Godly candidate. I don't believe our nation was ever a Godly nation though, not even when prayers were allowed in school because we still had laws that allowed people to be oppressed and mistreated because God gave us brown skin. I just pray and hope that people repent and become obedient of God before it's too late :(ReplyDelete
AMEIN, Shana! We totally agree, sis!Delete
I tried to warn my church that we should not mix with the ungodly also and not vote but pray that God would put in the one he has raised up for a time such as this( although I have felt Trump was always GODS choice,but being both are evil, we should pray because only He is all knowing)yet I was meet with GREAT opposition! People saying that they believed Trump is a modern day CYRUS and will make America great again!! WOW, no mention of repentance, NOT TO MENTION VOTING FOR SOMEONE WHO SAYS HE DOESN'T NEED TO REPENT, no turning from our wicked ways HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGES, ABORTIONS ( ALL) SABBATH DAY DEFINITION among many of our sins,BUT my brother and sister this must be so that the Scriptures might be fulfilled ( the ANTI-CHRIST must rise) therefore let us not grow weary in sounding the trumpet!! Even so come Lord Jesus..ReplyDelete
Amein, sister. These things ARE happening so that Scripture will be fulfilled. We just have to remain vigilant to keep ourselves as pure and set apart as possible.Delete
