God or Government, Searching For a Savior

The tribulation will be a time of trial and testing.  This writer would argue we are being tried and tested now.  How so?  This past Jubilee year was a year of revelation to all the world.  What was revealed?  The complete corruption of this world and its systems.  The media is utterly corrupt, the governments are utterly corrupt, the corporations that support them both are utterly corrupt.  So what?

So, this revelation of complete corruption has tested and tried many people.  There are three categories that people are falling into during this time of testing:

1.  Those who could care less about the corruption, greed, fraud, murder etc.  These people are either spiritually dead or near death.  They see what is being revealed but it does not register with them.  The corruption is like water off a ducks back, they fail to see any problem with the status quo at all.

2.  The second group sees the corruption, greed, fraud, murder and their answer is to "get out and vote for change!"  In other words, they are looking to the government to save them from the corruption, greed, fraud, murder that threatens to overwhelm this world.  Yes the danger is real but it is a spiritual danger not a political one that underlies the problems we are seeing.

3.  The third group sees the corruption, greed, fraud, murder and seeks refuge in the Lord their God.

Matt 6:9After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11Give us this day our daily bread.
12And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. 14For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

This writer can tell you that the Spirit of the Lord has never given an order not to vote until this election.  I have been prohibited from voting by the Spirit of the Lord.  I dont have to ask why, how what, although He has given me reasons not to do it. 

What is the problem with group 2 in the list above?  Many of these people call themselves Christian yet they take their counsel from the flesh and not the Spirit of the Lord.  There is no difference whatsoever between the faithlessness of the people looking to government (Trump) for salvation from wicked politicians like Clinton and Israel looking to Egypt for help against its enemies.  In both cases it is a failure of faith and in both cases it ended (will end) in disaster.  What is the Word of the Lord concerning such people?

Isaiah 30:1Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:
2That walk to go down into Egypt, and have not asked at my mouth; to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shadow of Egypt!
3Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh be your shame, and the trust in the shadow of Egypt your confusion.

Clinton is the most corrupt, wicked politician the United States has ever had in office and depending on the Lord's will in this matter she may be elected president.  So what, get out and vote right?  Absolutely not, seeking Egypt's shade and the strength of Pharaoh never was and never will be the answer.  The Lord is watching to see if His people (Christians and Jews alike) will make the same mistake over and over again.

The only way a wicked evil person like Hillary could get anywhere near the presidency of the United States is if the people of the United States were corrupt and wicked first.  Darkness cannot enter a room unless the light in that room is extinguished first....

If Clinton is elected is it a fitting crown of wickedness and corruption to complete the rot from head to toe in this nation.  If Trump is elected it will be the sin of looking to Egypt for Pharaoh's protection, indulging the flesh and a failure of faith.  Spiritual problems are not solved with political solutions.

Clinton is as evil and wicked as they come but so is the anti-Christ and nobody will be able to vote him away.  There will be no vote for the famine, war, death, plague or any of the other judgements coming upon this earth.  What we are seeing now with this vote in America is just a test and the vast majority are failing it miserably.

You know when people who call themselves Christians tell you that seeking the Lord's face in prayer for peace, safety and provision is "doing nothing" that they have been completely and utterly defeated.  To them, only seeking Egypt's shelter is doing something.  Re-read Isaiah 30:1 for what lies ahead for them.
