There are so many emails, stories, blogs, broadcasts, podcasts, tweets and whatever else espousing conspiracy theories about why you have no need to vote, and why a certain candidate is unworthy or worthy. When it all comes down to it, you have to discern, and discern wisely about your civic responsibility.
All the noise is there to confuse you. It is part of an overall demonic scheme to take you to a point where you cannot make a decision to even save yourself or your families. Christians seem very vulnerable to this phenomena of what the Communists call “ideological subversion” as indicated by a recent ChristianHeadlines.com story citing polls that indicate 20 percent of Christians will not vote in the upcoming election.
Christians sitting on the sidelines gave America another four years of the current occupant of the Oval Office. The results have been long-term devastation with debt, joblessness, war, rebellion, invasion, religious discrimination, a crack down on free speech and so on.
That’s what we get for sitting on the sidelines waxing spiritual.
We have been given life here on earth to live. The Lord has given us HOPE of how our lives on earth will be rewarded in spending eternity with Him or going to hell. It’s what is in our hearts and how we live our lives out here on earth that will matter. A well-balanced life practicing the Golden Rule is one of living life abundantly rather than being paralyzed by bad doctrine and wrong thinking.
There is a great parable told by Jesus about the kingdom of heaven. Jesus began by saying in Matthew 35:14:
“For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one…”
Now the men who had the five and the two talents doubled their value. The man with one talent buried it so it wouldn’t be lost. The men who invested and gained were told, “you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of the Lord.” The one that buried the talent had it taken away and was called “wicked and slothful.”
You may not like the choices you have in the upcoming election. But Christians choosing to exercise their spiritual pride rather than their right to vote is akin to hiding their talent. In March, a Pew Research Center survey indicated “that 70 percent of American Muslims identify with the Democratic Party.”
The New York Times reported that while Muslims make up only about 1 percent of the U.S. population, Islamic civil rights groups are working to register a million new voters. The focus is on small, but powerful, voting blocs to tilt close elections in swing states such as Ohio and Florida that have large Muslim populations.
While many Christians stubbornly will not vote to at least begin to turn our country around, you can bet Muslims will be voting to turn the nation toward Islam. That, my friend, is a devastating spiritual and prophetic reality.
Have a Blessed and powerful day!
