By her calling citizens and voters of the USA "good" she hopes to flatter and deafen us to the truth of the sins that she and we commit and have committed personally and as a nation, including abortion, selfishness, lying, lust, homosexuality, cheating, stealing, threatening, bullying, hording, inordinate affection, idolatry, elevation of self above the Word of God, and many other things. There is only ONE WAY that we are going to make any right decision about the person for whom we should vote in this election: we must put aside our fears, emotions, and prejudices, and we must seek the Living God, Jesus Christ, and PRAY that for His help to choose the right president, whether that soul is currently a leading candidate or not on November 8th. God can deliver us by many or by few, even as He chose Gideon and a few to start the rout of a mighty army that was about to attack Israel.
Dear Jesus, You alone can deliver us from vile people and lying politicians. You alone can turn the hearts of each of us back to Your Word and godly principles by which You have always said that we need to live. You alone can help us to repent and turn in faith to putting your Word into action in our own lives that we might be a holy example to all those around us. Please help us to repent and praise You across this nation, that YOU be honored and glorified, for without choosing YOU FIRST, as our Supreme Leader, we have no hope and no reason to hope. Thank You, LORD!!!!!!! Amen.
Zephaniah 2:1-3 1 Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not
desired; 2 Before the decree bring
forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the
LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD'S anger come upon you.
3 Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of
the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness:
it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD'S anger.
I start this article with one of God's calls to repentance, partly because our nation so desperately needs to repent of a horrid amount of personal and collective sin, but also to raise the point of the eternal standard by which we need to examine our political candidates for office, in every election. Having watched all three presidential debates and having followed a lot of commentary and news items that are readily available to anyone who wants to know the truth about Clinton and Trump, it is plain to me that there are some things about each of those candidates that need to be mentioned about them.
Mrs. Clinton has stayed with her husband through all of his philandering. Is she a saint, or a fool? Or,... has she just used him, all along, as a springboard to political office, for herself? In many, or dare I say, most, homes in the USA, most women refuse to tolerate husbands who keep cheating on them. Why is it that friends, neighbors, and counselors tend to tell a woman to get out of her marriage when her husband chronically cheats on her? Why do people lose respect for women who refuse to leave men who chronically cheat on them? AND... why do people NOT respect women's judgment IF the wives of chronic cheaters remain indefinitely with their husbands? Why is such insecurity considered a mental or emotional character defect by many people? Yet, in this election season, many people are ignoring the elephantine misbehaviors of her husband and fawning over the insecure Mrs. (CHRONIC or HABITUAL VICTIM of Unfaithful Husband) Clinton, trying desperately to get her elected to the highest public office in our land. Why are US voters being so two-faced about the average wife of chronic cheaters and yet so willing to excuse the political co-dependence of Bill & Hillary Clinton, when he can't or won't "keep it in his pants"?!
Mrs. (chronic or habitual victim?) Clinton has also courted "the black vote" making all sorts of entitlement promises (that shall only serve to further bankrupt our nation and corrupt those who line up to play for the payout), and yet, Mrs. Clinton ragingly bad-mouths the NRA (an American original civil rights group formed to help "blacks"). The Democrats' unpresidential candidate despises the NRA and those of us who love and defend our Constitution and its Second Amendment, calling us irresponsible extremists, even saying that we are PTSD-saddled mental defectives, if we served our nation in combat. Yet, that very unpresidential candidate, HC, wants to appoint a Supreme Court Justice, even though her own political attacks against our Constitution's plain language about citizens bearing arms are the same kind of supremacist racism that was in evidence when the Supreme Court used the Second Amendment to help deny Dred Scott his humanity and freedom. Too many of Mrs. Clinton's supporters are similar in their sentiment, to the irresponsible, liberally racist, socialistic Clinton, as they also want her to appoint another Supreme Court Justice to "legislate from the bench", and thereby, unconstitutionally attack our Constitution and our Rights. These 'modern' activists, just as those who feared people of color in the 19th Century, likewise seek to abuse the Supreme Court power, as was done to deny Dred Scott his freedom as a human being, deny him citizenship, and his right to bear arms, as the Majority said, on page 60 US 417, of that decision,
"It would give to persons of the negro race, who were recognised [sic] as citizens in any one State of the Union, the right to enter every other State whenever they pleased, singly or in companies, without pass or passport, and without obstruction, to sojourn there as long as they pleased, to go where they pleased at every hour of the day or night without molestation, unless they committed some violation of law for which a white man would be punished; and it would give them the full liberty of speech in public and in private upon all subjects upon which its own citizens might speak; to hold public meetings upon political affairs, and to keep and carry arms wherever they went. And all of this would be done in the face of the subject race of the same color, both free and slaves, and inevitably producing discontent and insubordination among them, and endangering the peace and safety of the State."
Clinton and her cronies do NOT understand our Constitution and its support of our natural rights. They do NOT understand that the likes of them do NOT somehow have more or better rights than the rest of us. They do NOT understand that to deny, minimize, or destroy any natural right (including that of self-defense and the ability to keep and bear arms), that all such attacks on any human rights are attacks on all human rights.
MANY people around our nation are bad-mouthing Trump for repeatedly sticking his foot in his mouth and saying all sorts of things that foolish or ill-advised. BUT, to be honest, why are people making such a big deal of Trump's comments, when Trump has not acted out on those things. It has been Bill Clinton who, historically, has put way more than his foot into far more than his mouth, and his wife is still putting up with that behavior! BC seems to have a desire to get caught cheating on his wife and then lies about it until proven guilty. His wife lies about his affairs until proven publically wrong. What kind of stage does that set for arguing or negotiating sensitive international trade or security deals, if HC were to be President?! The junk that one tolerates says a lot about the lack of character of the person putting up with it. Is electing our highest leader supposed to be some foolish sex oriented, sensationalistic, soap opera to entertain the public and shame our nation? Do we REALLY want BC back in the White House doing his thing with the staff members? If his wife gets into the Oval Office, BC will have lots of free time for philandering at taxpayer expense, ...AGAIN! Do we REALLY want a repeat of that kind of "leadership"... from the sex & lies duo?! from the cheat & delete twins? From the "What do you mean by 'sex' equivocators? The Clintons are a festering blot on our not so pristine political landscape.
Yes, Trump may have said all sorts of rotten things over the years, butit has historically been the Clintons who have put all sorts of rotten things into practice.
Personally, I'd MUCH rather have a President who, like Trump, has a hard time not getting angry about abortion, terrorism, financial destitution of our nation, illegal immigrants, or about lying public officials, or domestic cheating.
I do NOT wanta President who, like Clinton, has equivocated and chronically lied, misjudged international situations, denied responsibility for the mismanagement of her security violations, lied about her security breaches, played to the public for sympathy over her cheating husband while milking him for all the political advantage she could gain for herself.
I'd MUCH rather havea President who, like Trump, has a large loving family attesting to his intimate leadership skills.
I do NOT wanta President who, like Mrs. Clinton, can't maintain a morally constructive husband-wife relationship instead of wallowing in his cheating relationship.
I do NOT want a president who wants so desperately to cart her cheating husband back to the very scene of his former sins against her and against our nation.
What kind of twisted society are we building?While promising what her sycophants want to hear, Clinton will further tear at our Constitution and our way of life.
In contrast to my perceptions of his opposition, I thank God that Trump is very much in tune with what is angering a huge segment of righteous US society and, unlike his opposition, I think that Trump will turn his understanding of our citizens' anger and frustrations into hard work that will honor, support, and defend our Constitution and our way of life.
In the last few decades it has become increasingly popular among prelates, laymen, and scientists to excuse or ignore sin and to elevate the status of elements of Creation above the Self-existent, Eternal God who created all things for Himself, His pleasure, His purposes, including His having created us. It is willfully arrogant and ignorant of humanity to think that we can get away with sin and flaunt it in God's face, then for us to turn around and say that "we" are going to try to save the planet from the natural long term cycles that God put into place.
"Earth Day", "Gaia", & "Mother Earth" are expressions that roll off people's tongues even while they use profanity and blaspheme the Name of the Living God. Increasing numbers of souls are duped into the modern and interrelated religions of evolutionism and secularism, in which they push away God and His Word, in favor of their own ideas and fears. But, just because flies swarm hungrily around a pile of manure does NOT mean that I as a human being should be eating what flies eat. God has different plans.
Too many folks are hollering that climate change, more popularly called 'global warming', is a modern error of society. But those same people would have been screaming the same nonsense when the great Ice Age was bearing down on humanity. Those people want to change the weather and climate cycles to maintain their physical, financial, or social interests to which they've grown accustomed, BUT they do NOT want to change their sin. They want everyone accountable for consumer behaviors that have some small impact on CO2 levels, BUT they do NOT want to repent of their own sin, before the Living God. They do not want to admit that their personal sin was responsible for putting Jesus Christ on Calvary's cross. They do not want to admit or accept that He volunteered to shed His sinless blood, be tortured, and die in their own place, to pay for their sin. God says that we make false gods of ourselves when we exercise our willful selfish interests, when we choose our urges and false ideas instead of choosing His goals for us. We sin by failing to choose obedience, repentance, faith, holiness, and worship of HIM. Like flies, we keep choosing the manure pile of sin, instead of the good goals that God set for us. Our refusal to do what God wants not only corrupts Earth, but all of Creation. That we might choose to escape that corruption, Jesus chose to die in our own place and rise again to save us from the consequences of our sin,... IF we will just repent, trust Christ, and let God work in our lives.
Not only does God say that our sin corrupts Creation, BUT, because of humanity's continued refusal to repent, throughout the ages, God says that HE is going to end both human sin and all of His original Creation that our sin has corrupted. God has said for millennia that He is NOT going to destroy the world by floods or climate change, BUT, He very specifically says that HE is going to put all Creation to the torch... before He creates a NEW Heavens and NEW Earth in which are no longer any sin.
2 Peter 3:3-7 Knowing
this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their
own lusts, And saying, Where is the
promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as
they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by
the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water
and in the water: Whereby the world
that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by
the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment
and perdition of ungodly men.
So, my question is, how is it that people think that they are going to fight against God and save this Earth and Creation that God has promised to burn? Look at the simplest of situations that God posed to the Jews regarding the fruit of their sin. God's chosen people could not escape the consequences of their sin, because they did not repent. How arrogantly ignorant of history people are, today, who think that they can escape God's judgment and punishment for our sin. Even God's chosen people could not escape when they refused to repent!
Zephaniah 1:2-3 I will
utterly consume all things from off the land, saith the LORD.
I will consume man and beast; I
will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the
stumblingblocks with the wicked; and I will cut off man from off the land, saith
There is ONLY ONE WAY out of the destruction that is coming, and that is by PERSONAL repentance and faith in the Person and the Plan that God has stated all throughout history. Please choose His Plan for salvation before it is too late for you.
