Why Should Christians Vote?

Do you want to live in a country where Satan rules? or would you prefer the Freedom and Blessing’s of Christ? Stay home on Nov 8 and you just may get Satan’s rule! Get out and vote on Nov 8 and you can start taking your God given rights back.

America was founded on Christian principles, yet all people had the freedom to Worship as their conscience dictated (I don’t think God is intimidated by an unbeliever since everyone will answer for their decisions on Judgement Day). Personally I don’t want to have to give an answer to the question, “Why didn’t you vote to protect the unborn?”

The other day someone stated they could not vote for the lesser of two evil’s!  I answered based on something I read, I don’t remember exactly where I read it – “Until Jesus comes back, the lesser of two evil’s is your only option!”

Franklin Graham – Pray for America

I agree with what Franklin Graham is doing with the prayer meetings at the State Capitols. He is going to all the State Capitols to pray for the country and encourage ALL Christians to register and vote their values. He doesn’t tell people who to vote for, just that we all need to vote. I have tried to explain the numbers in a previous blog post Vote The Bible.

The website for Franklin Graham’s tour is Decision America Tour . The about page states

““America is at a crossroads, and I believe we should take every opportunity to stand up for the things of God and His Word.” –Franklin Graham

Franklin Graham is traveling to all 50 states in 2016 to hold prayer rallies, to preach the Gospel, and to challenge believers to take a stand and take action. He’ll be urging Christians to vote, to live out their faith in every part of their lives, and to pray for our nation just as Nehemiah cried out to God to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem and restore hope to His people.”

The snake

I was out digging some plants out of the yard and got to one that was quite large, normally I would not have tried it since I’m in a wheelchair but I started on it and it just wasn’t working. I had been working on it for awhile when I saw a snake near me and it just didn’t feel right, I tried to hit it with the shovel and it struck at the shovel then it went away.
Now the point here is “I don’t like snakes (never did) and if there is a snake around I stay away from it. After I ran the snake off I went back to working on the plant which I got out in short order.
My wife just looked at me in disbelief when she saw it. We talked about it later and she said no one had attempted that plant because it was so large and had been planted there for so long.
Now I believe that “The Enemy” will try to stop us from doing things whenever possible but when you face it and keep working at it you just might get a hand from God. I believe there was no way I could do on my own what I was trying to do. There was an attempt to stop me. I faced the opposition and went right back to what I felt I was led to do and while it still was not easy it didn’t take long.
Now some people might say that was just a coincidence. I don’t believe in coincidence, I believe there is a reason for everything that happens. Could it be that snake was under the bush and one of the grandkids may have been out there and got bitten? I’m lazy by nature and it was not a normal thing for me to get into a job like that but something prompted me to do it. How was it that I was able to do it when anyone who knows me would have said it wasn’t possible? I have learned over the years to listen and follow that prompting we all feel from time to time. I believe that is God talking to us and I for one want Him to keep talking to me so I will always try to listen.

God Bless You

Pray For A Come To JESUS Moment

That is my prayer for all our politicians. I pray for a move of GOD in Washington, and our so called leaders have their “Come to Jesus Moment”, and do what the Bible says in

2Ch 7:14  If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Highway To Hell

It occurred to me today that we all have two options. We can do the things that our society promotes ie. Support gay marriage, promote abortion or any other number of things and we will be on the bus traveling down The Highway To Hell. the other option is a little more difficult to do based on society. Support The Bible and all it says, accept Jesus as your personal Savior and stand up for Biblical principles and climb The Stairway to Heaven.

I have decided to take option two because eternity is much longer than I will be on this earth.

Conversation with GOD

Don’t know who wrote this but I like it.

 

God: This is GOD. I heard your prayers. I thought I will chat.

Me: I do pray. I am always busy and can’t find free time. Life has become hectic.

God: Sure. Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you results. Activity consumes time. Productivity frees it.

Me: Tell me, why has life become complicated now?

God: Stop analyzing life. Just live it. Analysis is what makes it complicated.

Me: why are we then constantly unhappy?

God: You are worrying because you are analyzing. Worrying has become your habit. That’s why you are unhappy.

Me: But how can we not worry when there is so much uncertainty?

God: Uncertainty is inevitable, but worrying is optional.

Me: But then, there is so much pain due to uncertainty.

God: Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.

Me: If suffering is optional, why do good people always suffer?

God: Good people go through trials, but don’t suffer, with that experience their life become better not bitter.

Me: You mean to say such experience is useful?

God: Yes. Experience is a hard teacher. She gives the test first and the lessons afterwards.

Me: But still, why should we go through such tests? Why can’t we be free from problems?

God: Problems Enhance Mental Strength. Inner strength comes from struggle and endurance, not when you are free from problems.

Me: We don’t know where we are heading.

God: If you look outside you will not know where you are heading. look inside. Looking outside, you dream. Looking inside, you awaken. Eyes provide sight. Heart provides insight.

Me: Sometimes not succeeding fast seems to hurt more than moving in the right direction. What should I do?

God: Success is a measure as decided by others. Satisfaction is a measure as decided by you.

Me: In tough times, how do you stay motivated?

God: Always look at how far you have come rather than how far you have to go. Always count your blessing, not what you are missing.

Me: What surprises you about people?

God: when they suffer they ask, “why me?” When they prosper, they never ask “Why me”. Everyone wishes to have truth on their side, but few want to be on the side of the truth.

Me: Sometimes I ask, who I am, why am I here. I can’t get the answer.

God: Seek not to find who you are, but to determine who you want to be. Stop looking for a purpose as to why you are here. Create it.

Me: How can I get the best out of life?

God: Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear.

Me: Sometimes I feel my prayers are not answered.

God: There are no unanswered prayers. At times the answer is NO. Don’t believe your doubts and doubt your beliefs. Life is a mystery to solve, not a problem to resolve. “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”

Me: How can I get close to you?

God: You are. Stop worrying about it and get on with life. Love all creation – spurn none.

How “We The People” Win

I feel that God has been dealing with me on some things since 2008. I was finding myself staying angry and ready to fight at every turn. I started thinking about it and realized that seems to be the way Satan has always worked, he wants people angry and fighting so they are not walking in Jesus’s footsteps and certainly not thinking clearly.
I don’t believe that is the way most American’s and Christian’s want to conduct themselves. I was feeling forced into it. Circumstances seemed to demand it because it felt like “We The People” were being stripped of our God given rights and that has been happening. I realized that as a Christian it is my responsibility to follow God’s Word and what I have to do is pray for myself, my family, my country, our politicians and the world. It has proven very difficult because the enemy is very good at lies and manipulation.
2Ch 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
That verse tells us all we need to know. When enough of us do what that verse says “We Win”.
I trust the American people to make the right choice if we are either left alone to make that choice. The enemy will try to keep us confused and angry so we need to pray on it, register to vote, then vote. One other thing: Forget about which political party a candidate belongs to, vote for the person not the party.

My 2014 New Years Resolution

I was sitting here tonight thinking about what I want to resolve to do this year. I know that GOD is in control and that is a good thing. I trust GOD much more than I trust politicians. As I look back over the past five years it occurs to me that all the bad stuff DC does to “We The People” has exposed the corruption in that town every turn. I don’t know about you but, I know more about our history and how politics works from watching GOD expose them than I ever knew before.

So this year I will vote, I will promote conservative candidates, I will encourage everyone I speak to, to get out there and vote. More important than that is making sure I talk to people about God and what Jesus Christ did for all of us. I hope it really irritates some people because they need to hear it more than the rest of us.

So this year I intend to be very outspoken about God and watch what HE does. I expect to see DC shaken up big time and I for one can’t wait to see it.

What is your resolution?
