It seems difficult to underestimate what’s at stake in this election. Hillary Clinton, a direct protege of the Satan praising Saul Alinsky, promises further national decline and new anti Christ government policies. She represents millions of our fellow citizens who think whatever thought pops into their head, no matter how absurd, is “progress” over the tried and true protection of the Constitution of the United States and the blessings of our Judeo Christian heritage.
The rise of Donald Trump on the other hand is completely unexpected. Without spending a lot of time on Trump’s own uneven record, he represents perhaps a pause, if not a hopeful reversal in America’s cultural, moral and economic decline. Remember in Old Testament Israel, deliverance from enemies was accomplished by individuals of questionable character who rarely fit the profile of “deliverer” and sometimes, by those outside of the Mosaic Covenant entirely.
Hosea’s prophecy, still calls out to us:
Sow righteousness for yourselves, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the LORD, until he comes and showers his righteousness on you.
- We need to sow in prayer and action (as commanded) for the good of our neighbors and our families.
- We need to break up the ground of unbelief, we have failed to hear and obey Gods desire to redeem this and every nation, and address our hardness of heart, which is self righteousness.
- We need to seek the Lord with tears of repentance for our nation and its decent into lawlessness, its rejection of Holiness and Truth and the foolish pride of trusting in our own deceitfully hearts over His written Word.
- And, if God in Mercy hears our prays, His righteousness may yet rain down on the parched and barren soil of our spirituality sick nation. Let His Mercy Triumph of over judgment and may the knowledge of Him cover this land as the waters cover the sea!
It is a battle worthy of the disciples of the King of Kings.
