Deceived Christians not voting for Trump
I have read that many professing Christians have said they are not going to vote for Trump, allowing Clinton to rise to power, because they want God to judge America. Is there such acrimony against sinners that Christians are willing to sink the ship in order to kill the rats? I am compelled to shine the light of Scripture on those whose hearts are so hard against sinners that they are willing to sacrifice our children to punish sinners.
When Abraham was informed that God was going to bring judgement on Sodom, a city filled with homosexuals, adulterers, and violence, Abraham pleaded with God to spare them. When Jonah was told to go to Nineveh and call them to repentance, he took a ship in the opposite direction because he wanted God to judge Nineveh. Judgement came on Jonah alone as he was swallowed by a whale. When he was finally constrained enough to go to Nineveh and his reluctant preaching provoked them to repentance, thus staying the judgment of God, Jonah sat down on a hill above the city and pouted. God interrupted his sulking with, “And should not I spare Nineveh, that great city, wherein are more than sixscore thousand persons that cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand; and also much cattle?” (Jonah 4:11). The entire book of Jonah is a statement about the mercy of God compared to the self-righteousness of his prophet.
It is so easy to ascend the hill of righteousness and look back down on the awful sinners. The disciples grew vengeful when they saw sinners acting like sinners. “And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village (Luke 9:54–56). The Christians who would fail to vote because they “want to see God judge America” do not know “what manner of spirit they are of.”
Christians seem to be ignorant of the fact that God’s judgment comes on those with the most light. “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?” (1 Peter 4:17).
The sinners won’t be carried into Babylon captive; the innocent children will be.
The judgment will come in a form that takes away Christian liberty and forces children to become part of the secular state. The judgment that believers are welcoming is their own suffering, not the sinners on whom they wish evil. The godless state will be strengthened. Families will suffer while the state celebrates its victory over all that is holy and pure.
When your children are forcibly taken from your home and placed in government care and sent to a school where they are encouraged to have same gender sex and change their sex on a whim, when babies are killed as they come out of the womb, and all vestiges of Christianity are wiped from their minds, and the secularists celebrate their victory while you try to scratch out a living in a war torn country where taxation prevents prosperity, you will remember that you wanted judgment and you bought it with your vote. If you fail in your responsibility to vote against the hellish Hillary, it will not be God’s judgement; it will be your judgement upon the children of America.
Election and the Christian
Election and the Christian
Our nation stands at a dangerous crossroads in this coming election. History reveals that national judgments which brings misery and suffering come from two hands—the hand of God who deems it best for the people to suffer so they will turn back to him, and the hand of men who through their actions and political policies design their own destruction.
I fear that time has finally come for America to reap what it has sown. Of course, we expect nothing of unbelievers; the Christians are marching us to judgment. The freedom to homeschool, the right to bear arms, the freedom to worship and proclaim Bible truth, the freedom of speech and assembly, and all the great things we have enjoyed about America may soon be snatched away. Judgment must begin at the house of God (1 Peter 4:17).
November 8th is the day of reckoning, and many Christians are blinded by their pride.
The Old Testament provides a window into how God relates to his people, what he tolerates and what will cause him to bring national judgment on a people—the guilty and innocent alike.
There are two things that provoke God to judge a nation. The Old Testament provides abundant examples of judgment falling on those who “dash their children, and rip up their women with child” (2 Kings 8:12). God commanded the total genocide of the Canaanites race because they offered their children in sacrifice. Hillary Clinton promises that she will appoint justices who will support partial birth abortions.
The second thing that stirs God to wrath is homosexuality. The story of Sodom and Gomorrah is famous for its bold declaration that God hates homosexual acts (Genesis 18-19). Romans Chapter One reveals the mind of God when it declares that not only those who do acts of homosexuality warrant death from God, but those who take pleasure in watching others perform same sex acts also deserve death. Every man, woman, boy and girl who have taken pleasure in movies or pornography of same sex acts are worthy of death (Romans 1:32). Hillary Clinton has promoted not only the equal rights of Sodomites, but she has denied the rights of the rest of us to reject that lifestyle as evil. Under a Clinton regime, through the Supreme Court Justices she appoints, the church will lose it liberty to preach and live by the Word of God.
The next president of the Unites States, through the appointment of Supreme Court Justices, is going to open the door to baby killing and normalization of homosexuality even further, or is going to appoint justices who stay the advance of the two things that provoke God to terrible judgment.
This November 8th the people of this United States will chose one of two viable candidates to lead this nation deeper into that which will bring judgment or may stay the hand of wrath a little longer. There is no third party candidate that has any chance to take the helm. Many Christians say they will not vote for the narcissistic Trump because he is a great sinner. A great sinner he is, as are many political leaders. God chose the wicked unbeliever of Nebuchadnezzar to be the king of Babylon, saying to him, “Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory” (Daniel 2:37).
Likewise God chose the wicked king Cyrus of Persia to be his instrument in delivering the children of Israel, saying of Cyrus, “He is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure” Isaiah 44:28–45:3.
Samson, with his philandering and groping, is no doubt the poorest example of a supposed Believer found in the Bible. Yet God chose him to protect the righteous. And Samson is listed in Hebrews 11 among the heroes of the faith.
Some of the founding fathers of our nation were unbelievers, yet we honor them, for God used them to establish the greatest nation on earth.
I have pondered the strange phenomenon of Christians choosing not to vote for a man who has clearly denounced abortion more than most any man, who has ever run for office, and who supports our Christian freedoms. My conclusions are sad. I do believe that Christians are frustrated with the state of the church and the lack of conviction. The day of power is long gone. Preachers are wimps, and there is no man to lead us back to God. In the absence of a prophet to lead the church, Christians have placed their hope in political figures. In short, we are looking to a politician to save us. The occasional evangelical believer who runs for office has never gained sufficient traction to get close to taking the commanding seat in the White House. I believe Christians are rejecting Trump because he does not fulfill the role of Moses or the Apostle Paul. He is an unholy man who is disgusting in his manner and lifestyle, but his political positions would be appealing if they came from a professing Christian gentleman whose life was above approach. So in the name of “holding to my principles” many Christians are cutting off their children to spite the up-turned noses on their faces. Not voting for Donald is a vote for more abortions, the end of homeschooling, the policing of religious speech in churches and public forums, the termination of the right to bear arms, and much, much more.
A vote for Trump is not an endorsement of the man; it is sadly the only option to prevent a great leap into an anti-Christian Supreme Court.
Finally, there is a truth in Scripture little spoken of: When God is ready to judge a nation, he actually sends strong delusions that people will believe a lie and act contrary to their own best interests. It may be that many of my blinded friends have succumbed to the delusion that “standing on principle” will somehow work to their good. Like it or not, every election since George Washington has been a choice between the lesser of two evils. There is one principle to be applied to close friends and pastors, and another to be applied to the corrupt world of politics.
It may be that the time has come for God to judge America, end homeschooling, put homosexuals in our church pulpits, and strip us of our civil rights. If so, the delusion that entangles so many may be of God’s doing. Personally, I could not live with the guilt of not voting for Trump and allowing Clinton to become the minister of God’s judgment upon my family and friends. When it all hits the fan, I want to know that it is not my fault. I was not deluded.
Finally again, it is entirely possible that Trump could be the minister of judgment upon us. He could get us into a world war. But I can only go with what I know, not what might be, and I know from what she stands for that Clinton is against all that is wholesome and the constitution.
