1 Samuel 8
4 Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah, 5 And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations. 6 But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD. 7 And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them. 8 According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee. 9 Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and show them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.
The men who tell you to 'get involved' in this world's politics are guilty of the same sin the Jews committed. These men only know the ways of this world, they are citizens of THIS WORLD so they speak from the viewpoint of this world, they are OF the world. They think that 'getting involved' with the world is how you 'make a difference.' They are blind, faithless men.
We are citizens of another kingdom, a kingdom not of this world. If our king and kingdom are not of this world, WHY should we get involved with the politics of this world? Did Jesus attempt to change the heathen governments of his day? NO, he did'nt. Did Paul? NO Peter? NO James? NO John? NO Get it?
Jesus and Paul and the rest went about SAVING THE SOULS OF MEN. There is NOTHING IN THE BIBLE that even REMOTELY hints that we should attempt to reform or in anyway engage with the governments of this world, except to pray for leaders..........THATS IT. If you want to 'change the world for Jesus' then start with yourself. When you are done there, FOLLOW the Spirit's lead.
There are so many so called 'christian' leaders running around attempting to lead stuff that nobody is following anymore. The sons of God are those who are led by THE SPIRIT OF GOD, not led by some men who have decided to 'get involved' or 'make a difference.'
If you vote, and your person gets in, you become guilty of every crime they committ. If you voted for George Bush, every drop of innocent blood shed in the middle east and elsewhere by that man is on YOUR HANDS TOO. You threw in your lot with him, you are as guilty as he is for everything he does.
Voting is just one of many issues that shows how ungodly and wordly todays so called churchianity is, they just dont 'get it.' They look like the world, they speak from the viewpoint of the world, they ARE the world. Anyone who is a friend with the world is an enemy of God (James 4:4).
The same people who are telling you to 'get out and vote' today told you to vote for George Bush, TWICE, and LOOK AT THIS PLACE. That man did more to destroy America than any president in US history. Bad judgement on churchianities part? Yea. The people telling you to 'get out and vote' today should not be trusted any farther than you can throw them.
When Jesus comes back, will He find faith on earth? Not much, but I think He already knew the answer before He asked the question. Turn your back on this world. Love people, do good, but HATE the world, this place will get you killed if you don't WAKE UP.
grace and peace
