I have finally resolved my personal pain of conscience and my conflicted soul over being put in a place of having to choose “the lesser of two equally horrific evils” nominated for President of these United States.
My conviction is that either candidate will absolutely take this country “deeper into the judgment of God” presently being manifest throughout our culture and society. This isn’t fatalism, it’s biblical realism! As is apparent to all who have eyes to see, divine judgment has already begun in the Church and is being severely unleashed upon our nation. These two Presidential nominees evidence the fact that we’ve crossed God’s own “red line”.
The Apostle Peter lays this reality bare for us to see and apply: “It’s judgment time for God’s own family. We’re first in line. If it starts with us, think what it’s going to be like for those who refuse God’s Message!” [1 Peter 4:17-19]
Interesting to that Peter is quoting from Ezekiel 9 where the Prophet declares that the beginning point of Judgment is God’s own Sanctuary and is then commanded to be unleashed upon society.
“Then the glory and brilliance of the God of Israel went up from the cherubim to the threshold of the [Lord’s] temple. And the Lord said, “Go through the midst of the city, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh [in distress] and grieve over all the repulsive acts which are being committed in it. But to the others I heard Him say, “Follow the [executioner] throughout the city and strike; do not let your eyes have pity and do not spare [anyone]…But do not touch anyone on whom is the mark. Begin at My sanctuary.” And He said to the executioners, “Defile the temple and fill its courtyards with the dead. Go out!” So they went out and struck down the people in the city.”
Dr Michael Brown recently wrote an interesting article entitled “Clinton,Trump,the Presidential Election and The Sovereignty of God. Michael states,”More than 2,500 years ago, the prophet Daniel declared that God “removes kings and sets up kings” (Dan. 2:21), and throughout the Old Testament, we see the Lord orchestrating history according to His plans, either to bless His obedient people or to judge His disobedient people.
Dr Brown poses a “concern” that lesser men would never broach. He asks the probing question,”What if Donald Trump was raised up by God to defeat 16 Republican candidates, some (if not most) of which could have readily defeated Hillary Clinton? What if he was raised up, not to become president, but to pave the way for a Hillary presidency?”
[In the event some try to misinterpret this, let me be clear, I would NEVER vote for Hillary! My Pro-Life conviction rules out any candidate from the Democrat party]
