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.
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?
To Christians and anyone else who may be interested. Politicians are becoming so arrogant that they think they are above both Cival and Moral laws. They think that because people keep electing them. I blame “We The People”. They serve with our permission so we need to make it clear that they no longer have our permission to act in an illegal or immoral way.
The way to do that is to hold them accountable at the polls and “Vote Them Out” which would get most of them out. The time to do most of the work is in the Primary. We can’t wait for the General Election because if we do we have No Good Choice. It’s a shame things have come to this. Over the years the system has become so corrupt we can no longer trust in “the checks and balances” built into the system because they have been compromised by politicians in both major parties, I don’t trust either party and expect the Republican party to go the way of the Whig party unless they clean house themselves. I fear so many of them are corrupt, they won’t and it will be up to the people to do, which means we will have to really watch them, we can’t count on the news to tell us the truth (most carry water for one party or the other).
I personally feel that The Democratic Party has been taken over completely by Progressives and a big part of The Republican Party as well to the point where I refuse to give money to either party and I won’t vote for anyone based on which party they belong to. I look at how they vote, what their moral values are. Maybe it is just me but whenever I get a chance to ask them my question is going to be “Do you accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior?” Now that may not be your criteria for your vote and that is your decision but we all have to vet the candidates to find out if they will do the right thing.
There are many websites out there who watch the candidates. You have to vet those websites as well because most have an agenda also. Either they are for the Republicans or the Democrats. I urge you to pay attention and do your own homework. Those parties want you to just follow the party line and that is a mistake because neither are trustworthy, they both want more power and control over your life. I put my trust in God and pray that He will make a way to open the eyes of enough people to get back to the founding principles of America, which was inspired by God, When America turns back to God, America will be Blessed again which is why I said what my question to a candidate would be. At least if they are truly a Christian they have a conscience and a moral compass. Sure they can lie but the Bible says we will know them by their works.
Much information is compiled at http://www.votethemouttoday.com/state.html Now I admit that most of the ones supported are Republicans because if a mistake is made it is preferable to err on the side of the more Conservative candidate but those recommendations change from the Primary to the General election. After the primary a judgement call has to be made because not voting is not an option.
We considered applying for tax exempt status but as we discussed it we came to the consensus that if we ask the government for tax exempt status then they in turn have some say so about what we say. With all that has come about recently I don’t want anything to do with any entity that would interfere with free speech.
So we decided to keep our freedom of speech.
I have been thinking lately and a thought came to me that we as a people are playing into the enemies game plan. We get distracted by all the scandals and worry about what our own government is trying to do to us, well in many cases they are actually doing it. I believe that is the plan to keep us worried and off balance so we don’t keep our focus where it should be. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying to ignore what they are doing, I’m saying be aware, know what they are doing, write, email and call Washington but put your trust in God and pray that God’s Will be done. I was listening to Joyce Meyer and she made a statement that caught my attention, she said “Throughout history when things got bad enough God got His people out”. What that said to me was “Put your trust in God, pray for His protection”. When enough people come back to trusting God to take care of things and pray He will move and those politicians and people in the government will not be able to stand against what God has planned.
When we get our priorities straight, put out Faith where it should be “In God” and live our lives the way the Bible tells us to we will start holding politicians to those same standards. That is when things really start to change because we will no longer tolerate ungodly people as our representatives, we will register to vote and actually go vote, when Christians vote their morals and listen to that still little voice which I believe is The Holy Spirit, WE WIN
