Plz consider me to speak at your church function, ladies group, etc.
Please look at that scripture in the above photo. Look very closely.
When I was growing up, I was warned. In matters of decorum, you don’t talk about politics, and you don’t talk about religion.
Well I threw that adage out the window a long time ago. Because whether people want to agree or not, we need to see whats going on in our country. And we need to talk about it. With each other.
And the strange thing, is that politics are affected by the lack of wisdom, from someone, who does not have fear of God, in such matters. I am not wincing words here. You do not want to be deceived.
I have seen enough in this election, to make me cringe, that Christian leaders who should have wisdom, and understanding of Gods ways, and truth are not supporting it. They are not vocal about it.
And in fact, are doing and saying things, that are the opposite of Gods truth, and are greatly influencing others. They think because they have the forum, and the power, they can say, what they want, and not have any consequences, concerning that. But they forget there is a judgment day for all of us.
Well that kind of endorsing, is wrong thinking on any Christians part. Because we do all have a responsibility to know Gods truth, to know what God says in a matter, and not to align ourselves with someone, who should know better. Or someone who purposely, disregards God, and His truth.
Politics are affected by these matters. Now I don’t like using the word religion, because it always gives a connotation about a group, or a particular ideology. But what I do refer it to, is to my relationship with Christ, that I have from my King James Bible, and prayer. And yes, I look at the fruit of someone in politics. Something Mr. Cruz, early in his campaign told us to look at. That was wisdom. Without, trying to enforce anything on anybody.
Bully tactics, are something, we should look at. And avoid. Because well, it goes totally against who we are as Christians. Christ, has never called us to enforce something on someone. He does not even take His word, and hit us on the head with it. He gives us a choice. Free will. But if we do not choose Him, well we choose wrong.
Many of you may be like me, where you are disappointed, in who some of our Christian leaders are now a days…
You think they should not support or endorse someone who has shown time, and time again, fruit that is not Christ like. To say the least.
Well, its time for you to stand up, where you are, with what you got. Your King James Bible, which is truth, and not corrupted, and stand and make a stand for the Kingdom of God, and yes for your country.
I believe prayer, is something, we need to begin doing more of. Myself included. And to pray repentant. Because more then ever, we are seeing the fruit of this in our country. The sins, that we have allowed, over, and over again. Including abortion. But we do need to pray. For Gods wisdom for our leaders, including those Christian leaders who let us down. And we need to pray, for guidance, from God and yes forgiveness.
But, concerning Christian leaders who have displayed a parting of Gods truth. I briefly want to say, when I feel that way, I am careful not to pray with them, or agree with them. You see, there is an anointing, that flows from the top and makes a covenant with someone in matters. This is why I would choose to have a Godly president, over someone who does not.
So when I see someone who is in the body of Christ choose someone, I don’t agree with, well that red alert or red flag is revealed. Its not that I don’t walk in love. Its not that I would even want to start an argument. Its a matter of choosing sides.
Gods side, and everything He says. Or what the enemy might choose.
You see, loyalty is very important to God. Being right in His sight. Its far more better then voting, against your conscience.
When we choose to align ourselves, even in prayer with someone, we do not agree with, what does that say to God?
Now we must, especially in these times, be careful, who we align ourselves with. We must ask God for wisdom.
I just think its wise, for myself anyway, not to align myself with someone, who has displayed in conversation or support, to someone who has gone against everything Christ has taught us. Either we obey God, or we don’t. Be careful who you pray with, and agree with.
Since, I cannot be a hypocrite, strange I got tested in this matter. And what I have learned, even in this, is pray, people are not deceived. Pray people get the blinders off of their eyes. Because the enemy will use people, even people, who have a form of light, and they are true darkness. Remember the enemy was light. He can transform himself. Pray you are not deceived. Pray for those who are.
Be careful to be prayerful in matters, more then ever for our country. I just feel the Lord prompting me more to work on my own love walk. To avoid strife. To take on Christ more in my communications, and to avoid arguments, that are just meant to be a snare, to my soul.
After hearing another Christian leader give an endorsement, this is my thought:
Plz don’t tell me you cannot judge someone’s heart. After they have spoken evil! Did we forget what Christ taught us? Are we going to let the blind lead us?
I FOLLOW CHRIST NOT MAN!
“Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”
Matthew 15:14 KJV
“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.”
Luke 6:45 KJV
In conclusion: I just feel led to also remind you to be in prayer for our country more so. To remind you, that you have the ability to be a vessel for the Lord. To work on our love walk. To avoid the spirit of strife that comes from some who really have no sense of truth. Pray for people, but don’t strike up a friendship with, someone who really is friends with strife. Someone, who really just wants to argue. That kind of self confidence, is evil.
Be careful friends, blessings, and love in Christ. May God be glorified, and I believe in miracles. For the United States of America.
MAKE NO FRIENDSHIP WITH AN ANGRY MAN; AND WITH A FURIOUS MAN THOU SHALT NOT GO: LEST THOU LEARN HIS WAYS, AND GET A SNARE TO THY SOUL. BE NOT THOU ONE OF THEM THAT STRIKE HANDS, OR OF THEM THAT ARE SURETIES FOR DEBTS. PROVERBS 22:24:26. KJV.
I loved this thought, that came from dear Mr. Cruz. Yes, I admire this man greatly. He is a man of great integrity, conviction, and stands for that which is right. I admire him, because he stands his ground. He is not a people pleaser. He is I believe a man who wants to please God. He knows who he is by his integrity. This is why I am sad, he is not our nominee.
But that thought of his is the talk of today. And it causes us all to think. So why? What does that mean, to vote your conscience?
I love getting to the root of things. Thats always been my nature, to understand. Why people, say what they do? What is the foundation of something said. The root, determines far more then what may be implied in anything. Because it reveals the very soul of someone. Don’t scratch the surface, get to the root of it! Why waste your time, pondering? Go to the top, the wisdom that God gives. Does it come from God or satan? You can know if you truly seek God. If you read holy word.
Christ told us, that we would be known by the words we speak. We would be judged by those same words. And out of the abundance of the heart, we do speak. Scripture (paraphrasing) tells us we have power of life and death in our tongues, and we eat the fruit thereof. Proverbs 18:21. That last scripture is enough to give pause to consider what we do say.
I think Mr. Cruz thought about what he should say. He knew he had if anything to prove to himself, and God, he had a responsibility as a leader to tell us how to vote. By the conscience.
The conscience. The sense, these are principles, principles God has given us to establish to know the difference. To guide us, to give us wisdom. To give discernment between good and evil.
So to vote your conscience. Hmmm. Lets get to the root of that. Without actually endorsing anyone, without saying anything further about someones character, or the lack of it.
To get to the root of it, you need to look at the fruit. To look at the soul of someone. You have to see, what someones words are based on. Is it truth? Or is it a lie? How did they get to the foundation they have? Is it based on God, or is it on satan? Is it love or is it hate? Is it good, or is it evil?
You see, thats just the way it is going to be. Its not in-between, or at a half way mark. With God, its choose this day, whom you will serve. God does not play games with us. He tells us to choose whom we will serve.
I CALL HEAVEN AND EARTH TO RECORD THIS DAY AGAINST YOU, THAT I HAVE SET BEFORE YOU LIFE AND DEATH, BLESSING AND CURSING, THEREFORE CHOOSE LIFE, THAT BOTH THOU AND THY SEED MAY LIVE. DEUTERONOMY 30:19 KJV.
And whether you want to choose or not, is really irrelevant, because by not choosing, you can choose evil. By not standing up for good, by being lukewarm, so to speak, God will spit you out. See Christ’s last words to us, in Revelation 3. Of a KJV. Because even in these scriptures he is reminding us, yes, salvation could be at stake by not repenting. He tells us let no man take your crown!
Repentance, is always the key to clearing the slate with God. Always, don’t ever forget that! It will clear your conscience. It will clear your soul, it will make you right with God. Repentance is admitting you have sinned, that you have made mistakes, by not basing your “conscience” your soul on Christ. It is the sweetest cleansing, you ever can receive, because it will clear the slate, and clean your robes.
See, God is giving us all a chance on this earth to choose. And so you have to know what your “conscience” is based on. You have to know what source, as the foundation, does your thoughts come from to vote.
Is it good, is it truth, is it love, is it pure, and holy, submitting totally to God? In obedience, in fear of God. Yes, fear, people don’t like that word, but see, if you fear God, you choose wisely. So your conscience, does not fear anybody else, but God Himself, to prove to Him, your own alliance. To please God.
The conscience. That little voice, that gut instinct, that sense you might call common sense, is always based on good or evil. God or the devil. And to know that, is to learn to fine tune it. You can always trust it, if its based on God.
It tells you what is right, it tells you what is wrong. But if the foundation of it, is not based on God totally, well it will be wrong. But the principle is in its place. If you have not made Christ Lord, and savior, you will be ruled by the principle, that comes from the devil. Theres no in-between here again.
Thats why I am so careful with the Bible I choose. I choose the King James. To choose something, that has not been corrupted, or compromised, because I truly want to be on the same page with God. He does not change, we do. So my thoughts, will reflect the mind of Christ. According to His word. Not my thoughts, not satans thoughts. But God almighty.
But it is a choice. So, to vote your conscience, is a choice. This is America. Beautiful America, the land of the free. But how long will that be, if we do not choose Gods ways? We may very well learn. This is who we are as a nation. Free. We have freedom, our whole nation is on the foundation of freedom, but in God we trust.
Some of us trust in God anyway.
So only you can answer the question as to where your “conscience” is based on. Only you, can determine, to know if you are right are wrong, but remember, you will be judged by what you choose.
We will all stand before God. For the choices we make, including how we vote. It is recorded in the book of life. But ask yourself, is your name in the Lambs book of life? That book, that has no stain on it. Cleansed by the sacrifice of Christ.
Without telling you who to vote for, to vote your conscience, means you are voting because you have freedom. But remember, that freedom, in our nation, will produce, fruit. It will produce a consequence. Either for good or evil. God or satan.
So be careful how you vote. Be careful what you base it on. Be careful, that you see the root of someones character, to know, is it good, is it evil?
I think we have seen enough to know. At this point. But if you do not know, ask God. Come to His throne humble. Repentant. Seeking truth. He will show you. He is awesome when it comes to things like that, so He deserves glory and honor and praise as I even write this. I know. There is none like God, and sometimes, you wonder. But He is on the throne. No matter who is President.
The rest is up to you, and yes God, for it is always in His hands. Who is your choice to vote for? It may mean you don’t vote. And thats another topic, between good and evil, and evil is still evil. And good is still good. Thanks be to God.
Remember God sees your vote. What is your conscience based on? As you vote? Or do not vote? Your an American, know the difference!
