Another large earthquake in diverse places. Next week the presidential (s)election takes place. Why do I write election with a (s) in front of it? Because the politicians are selected, not elected...Because the people and their votes don't matter. What matters is who counts the votes:
As Mr Joseph Stalin said:
At this point I have lost count of the number of stories from states across the nation claiming that votes for Romney are showing up as votes for Obama. (S)election officials tell the people "don't worry, there's nothing wrong here." Really? LOL, the only difference now is they don't care if you know your vote does not count!!!!!
If I thought believers should vote I might be upset about such things but nowhere did Jesus or any of the prophets or apostles EVER get involved with the politicians of their day...EVER.
What part of "my kingdom is not of this world" do people calling themselves Christians not understand?
Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jews. But now my kingdom is from another place."
People will NOT get the political leaders they vote for (see the evidence linked above) but they will get what they DESERVE. A wicked world will get devils to choose from to lead them? Why? Because they are wicked...
These same preachers/teachers who tell you "you have to vote" are the same ones the Lord rejected long ago:
1 Sam 8:4So all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah. 5They said to him, “You are old, and your sons do not walk in your ways; now appoint a king to leada us, such as all the other nations have.”
6But when they said, “Give us a king to lead us,” this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the Lord. 7And the Lord told him: “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king. 8As they have done from the day I brought them up out of Egypt until this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so they are doing to you. 9Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will do.”Do you still think your "vote" counts for something? Let me ask you, do you appoint (through your vote) authorities or does GOD appoint authorities to rule over you?
Romans 13:1 Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.
So, again it does not matter one iota who you vote for. The United States today has two devils to choose from, two evils to decide on. Do any of you really believe the Lord is please with us choosing any evil whether it be a lesser evil or not? Does choosing demon A over demon B please the Lord? Really?
There is no authority except that which GOD has established. Not through you, not with you, not by you, GOD.. period... has established...authorities.. period..
But I know, there is no stopping the worldly. This is how we know who they are, that is those who belong to this world. They speak from the viewpoint of this world (with words like "you have to vote!") and the world listens to them:
1 John 4You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 5They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them. 6We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirita of truth and the spirit of falsehood.
May the grace and peace of God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ be upon you.
