Blog 20 On Voting

BLOG     20                        ON  VOTING

  It has been said, “for evil to prevail, good men do nothing.” \It is our God given right to vote.  As citizens of this great nation, it is our privilege and duty.  I believe America is a godly country, and we Christians have a responsibilty to our heavenly Father to take part in the things that effect our soceity.  
 I know of many who are saying they are not going to vote.  They have said they will stay home and pray!  Well, we are to pray for those who are over us.  In 1st. Timothy 2:1-3, we are admonished to pray for all those men, kings, and those who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. ( my paraphase )  We are to pray in faith, but we put action with our faith, or it is not faith.  In the Bible, says faith without works is dead. (James 2:17,20) Faith apart from works is dead.  
 Prayer is to be offered for all; but if we never speak the truth to a person, there will be no change.  We are to be salt and light.  We are to let our light shine into the darkness of our culture to help bring about change.  Salt is a preservative.  We are to preserve our God given rights.  We are to bring the righteousness of God into our daily lives.  
 One big lie, the devil uses is that one person can not make a difference.  One person can surely make a difference!  If everyone thinks this way, no one would vote!  God uses His people as instruments to bring about change in our world.  How can this be done if we don’t get out and vote those into office who have the same Godly views on the serious issues our nation is facing?  We are fighting against evil and promoting good.  
 The only way to really fight against evil is reach one person at the time with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.  How God came to earth and put on flesh, healed all our diseases, hung on the cross, and redeemed us from sin, justified all by the shedding of His precious blood.  There is no greater love than a man lay down His life for His friend.  We might be willing to lay down our lives for someone that we love and care about ( like the men that shielded the girls with their bodies at the Batman movie massacre), but we can not save their souls.  
 Jesus is the sinless lamb of God; His only begotten Son.  Only by His sacrifice can one be saved.  We all need a personal encounter with the Savior, and the message of the Gospel.  
 He is the only answer for our beloved country, and for the rest of the world.  For God so loved the world.  The little word so means much.  Because He SO loved; He not only allowed Jesus to die instead of us, but He planned it.  While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.  This is what we are to base our lives on: “What Jesus did on the cross.”  This knowledge will change our world.  
 But how will they hear if there is no one to tell them?  
 We are stewards of freedom in this nation.  Have you ever read about  others in countries who are living under a dictorship?  I believe they would give everything to have the freedoms that we have been blessed with.  Why are there still thousands of people trying to come to our country?  Because they know this is still the best country in the world.  We are blessed to have been born here.  
 If you really care about your freedoms, and liberties; you had better seek God, pray, inform others, and vote.  
 Neither a pastor, nor a spiritual leader is running for office.  Someday, that might be a possiblity, if we preach the Gospel to everyone we meet.  The man that is closer to God’s word is the one that should be voted for.  Look at the character of the candidate and his track record. ( how he has voted, and what he stands for )  
 We know God hates abortion, and homosexuality.  Abortion is murder!  Homosexuality is an abomination to Him.  A marriage is between one man and one woman.  The family has been instituted by God.  A man and a woman can procreate ( bring godly children into the earth to carry on God’s will ).  Neither two men, nor two women can not!  
 Abortion and sterilzation is being promoted to reduce the population.  Also, homosexuality is being encouraged to increase to bring about a reduction in the population.  They are eliminating themselves by their lifestyle.  The elite want to limit the world population to 500 million.  God did not make a world that would not hold His creation.  He loves us all, and desires for all to come to the knowledge of the truth, and be saved from destruction.  
 If the ones who are in control really cared for the men and women involved in abortion and homosexuality; they would do something to help them.  These are broken people; they need to know just how much God loves them.  ( Reference book “Now is the Dawning of the New Age. New World Order,” by Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D. )  This book is a  chronology covering events and characters having dramatic consquences on our public schools and our government. ( our world)  This book will shed a glaring light on what has been going on for centuries.  This book will make you mad!   We, who are Christians know who is behind all this deception. (satan)  He uses men who do not belong to God  to do his evil.
 So, the morals of our nation are what we should be voting for.  In Psalms 33:12, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” We, the Body of Christ, are the ones who will determine whether or not America will stay blessed.  I believe God will hold us responsible.  If Jesus is our Lord and Savior, then we are to allow Him to be Lord over us.
 Judgement starts at the house of God first. ( the Church )  We must pray and speak to our generation about the Gospel of Christ. ( being led by the Holy Spirit )  
 We are to occupy til Jesus comes, and looking at the situation around us; it won’t be too long.  Then as it says in Isaiah 9:6, ” the government will be on His shoulders.”  It is His government that will bring peace. ” Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end.” ( Isaiah 9:7 )  
 I encourage all to reach the “LOST” before it is too late.  This is our father God’s heart. ( and should be ours too )
 Oh, and yes, please go and vote.  Vote your conscience!!

   Faith Cabin signing off for now.  Love, blessings, and smiles.
