My Vote For Donald Trump?

 

Donald-Trump-Hillary-Clinton-9001I 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?”

Selah!

[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]

Franklin Graham: Can A Christian Vote For A Mormon?

Read this interesting article by Rev. Franklin Graham posted in  Charisma News. Rev. Graham is one of the most faithful evangelist in the church today. I have the deepest respect for this man and his ministry.

This question has stirred much debate. Historically, Christians have voted for candidates of different faiths, including Mormons, based on how they live their lives and how deeply committed they are to upholding the U.S. Constitution. Remember, God-ordained government, and we are not electing a pastor-in-chief, we are electing a commander-in-chief.

George Washington was Episcopalian, Abraham Lincoln had no religious affiliation while he was president, John Kennedy was Catholic and Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton were outspoken Southern Baptists. Over a period of 223 years, our nation’s cities and states have been governed by people of many different faiths, including Mormons from both the Democratic and Republican parties.

Orrin Hatch, a Mormon, has served this nation as an effective senator and George Romney, Gov. Mitt Romney’s father, was one of the great governors of Michigan. His religion never interfered with governing, but his personal faith did define his strong marriage, family values and personal integrity. I believe this is the same for Gov. Mitt Romney. While there are major differences in the theology of evangelical Christians and that of Mormons, as well as those who practice the Catholic faith or the Jewish faith, we do share common values that are biblically based.

Americans must remember that while our nation was founded upon godly principles, we do not have a state religion. Rather, our Constitution provides for the freedom to worship without interference of government. Our forefathers shed their blood to win this right. We must be committed to electing a commander-in-chief who will protect this liberty and uphold the Constitution as one nation under God, and who will ensure God’s moral law will not be violated by changing the law of the land.

We are at a profound crossroads. Our secularized society has shaken its fist in God’s face and rejected His very name. Like Joseph and Daniel, we must not compromise when government clashes with the worship of God. We must not silence our voices to God’s law. We must use our influence to elect those who will govern with respect for the sanctity of marriage as between one man and one woman; the sanctity of life; and yes, the protection of God’s beloved nation Israel. We must not cast votes for officials—whether candidates of the Democratic, Republican, or Tea Party, or of a religious persuasion—that are against these principles of God. We have, in the past, elected Christians who have defied some of these very principles.

We need something like what Jerry Falwell did in the 1980s. We need a “moral majority”—made up of Christians, Jews, Mormons, Catholics and many others of faith—to come together to take a stand for our religious freedoms and rights.

In recent days, President Clinton said that President Obama “has a plan to rebuild America from the ground up.” But God-fearing Americans have no desire to see America rebuilt—but rather restored. To “rebuild it” would be to create a new nation without God or perhaps under many gods. This was never the intent of those who shed their blood for the freedom to worship as “one nation under God.”

I pray that all Christians and God-fearing Americans will put aside labels and vote for principles—God’s principles—that for many years have resulted in His blessing upon our nation.

So, can a Christian vote for a Mormon? The answer is yes.
