As we head towards the 2014 midterm elections, many people are hopeful that if we can just get the right people in office things will turn around. Others are focused on 2016 and if we can just get a Republican in the White House, we can save the country. When I hear people talking like this I just want to shake them. It doesn’t matter if you’re Democrat or Republican or Libertarian; the arm of flesh is not going to save you. You have to understand that we fight not against flesh and blood and that this is a spiritual war. We tend to put more trust in the ballot box than we do in God. Please realize that today’s corrupt and morally debased politicians are a byproduct of our morally bankrupt society. And to take it a step further, our morally bankrupt society is a byproduct of an apostate spiritually bankrupt church. Our problem is not a political one; it’s spiritual.
As a matter of fact we worship the politicians more than we do God (this is idolatry). Here’s a prime example. If there is going to be a political rally with your favorite politician showing up, most people will move mountains to be there. If your church calls a prayer meeting, many of us are too busy (my favorite show comes on that night, Billy has a soccer game, and on and on). The fact of the matter is that this country has been in a downward spiral for decades. Things have gotten progressively worse under Democrat and Republican rule. There are many who would like to selectively forget evils done under other administrations and blame it all on Obama. I am not endorsing Obama and as a matter of fact see him for what he really is. This country’s current condition is not the sole result of his administration but, he has been placed into office to drive the final nail in the coffin. I know that I will get a lot of flak for saying this but I believe it was God ordained that he be in office at this time in history. Before you start typing out hate mail to me, let me explain. He was appointed unto us as a judgment on this country. God is always in control and knows exactly what He is doing. He lets us know in Proverbs 8:15-16 (KJV), “By me kings reign and princes decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth.” Notice He didn’t just refer to righteous kings, but all kings and princes and judges both good and evil.
God has just given this country what it wants. Remember that He created us with a free will to choose. Unfortunately, this country collectively has chosen evil. We’ve kicked God out of our families, our schools (and we act surprised when there are school shootings), our halls of justice, our workplaces and in many instances our churches. We live in a society where, fornication, adultery, homosexuality and other sins are celebrated while being a Christian will now get you on the terrorists watch list. We can learn a lesson from the nation of Israel in I Samuel chapter 8. They rejected righteous rule (God) and begged for a king. They wanted to be like the other nations. I guess the grass must have looked greener on the other side. Even though Samuel warned them about what would happen if they went this route, the people continued to cry out for this. So guess what? God gave them what they wanted and they reaped the consequences of it.
So what are we as a country to do with the mess that we are in? As I mentioned earlier that we have a spiritual problem on our hands. You don’t solve a spiritual problem with a political solution. This country has been given opportunity after opportunity to repent and turn back to God, but sadly has continued to go in the opposite direction. I really think that it is too late as a country and God has given this nation over to what it’s asked for. That being said, it is not too late for individuals to repent and turn back to Him. Jesus said in John 14:6”I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me” (KJV). Jesus is the only way and the only One who can save you.
