Check out this very interesting passage in the Holy Bible. “The Spirit of the LORD spoke by me and His word was in my tongue. The God of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spoke to me: he that rules over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God”. Notice the two mandatory qualifications Almighty God places on potential rulers. They must have a strong sense of right and wrong, and they must exercise their power in awe and respect of Him.
In the United States, rulers are chosen by the people; therefore, it is the duty of Americans to vote only for just, God-fearing men. While you cannot expect the worldly crowd to do this, you would think that we would be able to count on professing Christians. Sadly this is not the case at all. Multitudes of professing Christians are more loyal to their political party than they are to the Almighty. The scriptures say that we are to love Almighty God with our whole heart, soul, mind and strength. In other words, we are to love Him with everything including our vote; however, when it comes to politics many Christians ignore the commandment. Excuses abound; such as, separation of church and state, but this is contrary to the Word of Almighty God. Regardless of what others say, we professing Christians have a duty to choose only a just and God-fearing sort.
Let us consider the last election cycle for a moment. The Obama administration had four years to establish its moral agenda before us all. The record showed that President Obama supports a “Sodom and Gomorrah” culture. The record showed that Obama supports taking from the hard working people and giving to the lazy. The record showed that Obama supports abortion on demand. The record shows that Obama is more of a Muslim sympathizer than a “lover of Israel”. The Obama administration’s record on morality is neither moral nor just. For those first four years, did Obama rule in the fear of Almighty God? From a Biblical and Christian perspective the answer is a resounding NO; therefore, Obama does not meet the Biblical qualifications for being a ruler. Even though the Obama administration ruled in open rebellion against the Great Creator, that did not keep hundreds of thousands of professing Christians from voting for him again. Shame on these professing Christians for speaking with forked tongue. The Holy Bible says, that whosoever will be a friend of worldliness is the enemy of Almighty God. It is little wonder that our country has turned its back on the Almighty. Millions of professing Christians, who are supposed to be salt and light to a lost world, can hardly be distinguished from the worldly crowd.
I want you to be careful to understand what I am saying here. Because the man who ran against Obama for the presidency was compromised on the issue of life, I did not vote for him either. I did go vote, because it is my duty as a Christian to do so; however, I cast my vote for Rick Santorum, because he is a just, God-fearing man. Some would say, that I threw away my vote. Listen carefully. It is more important to me that the Almighty see me voting for a just man who will rule in the fear of Almighty God. I will answer on the judgment day for my political choices. I would much rather be in good standing before the Creator, than before man.
So what is the solution here? People who profess Christ need to get on the same page. If Christians would get in unity and only support a just, God-fearing man, they would change the course of history. The Almighty honors those who honor Him, and He lightly esteems those who despise Him. The Creator honors the nation that honors Him, and lightly esteems the nations who despise Him. The problems in this country are directly related to our sinful behavior, and the greatest threat to our national security is our very own rebellion against Almighty God and against His word. We will reap disaster, if we do not turn from our wicked ways.
