Election 2004

In 2000 it was Florida.  In 2004 it is Ohio

 
 

The election...Never before in the history of the United States have we seen an election such as the 2000 election. . Days after election day, it was  unknown who the next president will be.

Many people are saying their voice was not heard correctly or was not counted correctly. Some have said they were denied a vote.

Of course we all knew the importance of this election...It determined who will be the president of the most powerful country on Earth for the next four and possible eight years. It was important that  we find out whom the people want, yet we see that the feelings of the people are drawing almost right down the middle.

There is another election going on that is far more serious. This one will determine who is in control of your life not for the next four or eight years, but for eternity. YOUR vote is the ONLY one that counts in this election. The stakes are far more important. This election is between two choices. EVERYONE has a vote. Unlike our election for president, no one else's vote matters...JUST YOURS. In fact in this election, if you do not vote you actually vote by default.

This election is of course between Jesus Christ and satan. In order to vote FOR Jesus Christ....We have to vote. To not vote is an automatic vote for satan. At times there are people that vote for satan by choice...but unlike the presidential election, often Jesus Christ allows a us to revote...and we can change our vote from satan to Jesus Christ. There is however an urgency to this vote...we are not promised ability to recast our ballot in this election.

2 Corinthians 6:2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

If YOU have not voted FOR Jesus Christ my friend...please do it today...do it now...the polls may close at any moment for you...It is the most important vote you will ever cast!

Election 2004

At the time I am writing this, the 2004 presidential election for
the U.S. is still too close to call. Most Biblically based Christian
churches urged people to vote according to Biblical principals. Most
could not tell which person to vote for because it could cause the
church to lose their tax exempt status. (strange then that one
candidate was able to speak in several churches and they did not risk
this fate)

I am writing to remind each of us that no matter who is elected, we
all have the same responsibility. What is that responsibility? Let's
look at God's Word for the answer.

When Jesus Christ stood bound before Pilate, the Roman governor, He
told Pilate: Jesus told him "Thou couldest have no power (authority) at all against me, except it were given thee from above" (John 19:11) 

That stands true today. All power comes from God. At times, evil does win out because we do reap what we sow. In other words, we get what we deserve. Remember, God also said it rains on the just as
well as the unjust. God did not promise justice on this side of
eternity. He has however promised that HIS grace will be sufficient
for those who trust Him.

Daniel 4:17 makes this clear:

This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the
word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that
the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to
whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men.


'The decision is announced by messengers, the holy ones declare the
verdict, so that the living may know that the Most High is sovereign
over the kingdoms of men and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets
over them the lowliest of men.' (NIV)


Romans 13
1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no
power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance
of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt
thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do
that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also
for conscience sake.
6 For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's
ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.
7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is
due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.


God has often used ungodly rulers to judge HIS people. When we
forsake God, we often to face judgment. We saw this when Israel was taken captive in Babylon. We saw it once again when Roman occupied Israel.

I have said often that if John Kerry is elected, due to his radical
feminist support and the fact that he has all but told father's groups that they do not matter, I feel that Shattered Men would be far more needed. I also stated that his administration would far more likely extend and strengthen the Violence Against Women Act which is so one sided that abused men can not only can not get help, they are far morel likely to be abused by our justice system. For those who do not know about this act, you can read about it here:

Still there is some things that are very clear in God's Word.

REGARDLESS of who wins the presidential election in the United States in 2004, the results for us is still the same.

1 Peter 2
13 Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake:
whether it be to the king, as supreme;
14 Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the
punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.
15 For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to
silence the ignorance of foolish men:

Remember, when this was written, the Roman Army occupied Israel.
Christians were being persecuted then as they are now. Oh yes, we are told that we have to obey GOD rather then man....but remember....we have to be sure that we are standing on solid ground when we invoke this scripture. It ONLY applies when a Christian is told to do something that violates CLEAR scripture. We also need to be willing to pay the cost in this system of justice we have now. That could mean going to jail...and someday soon...being prepared to give our very life to stand for our LORD. Many are doing that right now folks. More people have been killed for standing for Jesus in the last 100 years then the previous 1900 years.

What is our duty no matter who is elected:

Matt 22:21b Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are
Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.

Titus 3:1 Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and
powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,

1 Timothy 2
1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers,
intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a
quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;


There is hope.

Proverbs 21:1 The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the
rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.

Shortly, the 2004 election in the United States will be over. There
is ANOTHER ELECTION that is still ongoing.

Of course we all know the importance of the presidential election. It determines who will be the president of the most powerful country on Earth for the next four and possible eight years. It IS very serious that we find out whom the people want, yet we see that the feelings of the people are drawing almost right down the middle.

There is another election going on that is far more serious. This one will determine who is in control of your life not for the next four years, but for eternity.

YOUR vote is the ONLY one that counts in this election. The stakes
are far more important. This election is between two choices.
EVERYONE has a vote. Unlike our election for president, no one else's vote matters...JUST YOURS. In fact in this election, if you do not vote you actually vote by default.

This election is of course between Jesus Christ and satan. In order
to vote FOR Jesus Christ....We have to vote. To not vote is an
automatic vote for satan. At times there are people that vote for
satan by choice...but unlike the presidential election, often Jesus
Christ allows a us to revote...and we can change our vote from satan to Jesus Christ. There is however an urgency to this vote...we are not promised ability to recast our ballot in this election.

2 Corinthians 6:2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time
accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after
this the judgment:

Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose
you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

If YOU have not voted FOR Jesus Christ my friend...please do it
today...do it now...the polls may close at any moment for you...It is the most important vote you will ever cast!
