God And Elected Leaders

Bottom line… how are Christians to understand the results of political elections?  Consider the Scripture and remember the following as you watch the election coverage tomorrow (God willing).

Proverbs 8:15,  (God speaking) By Me kings reign…

Daniel 2:20, Daniel… said: “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever,  to whom belong wisdom and might. 21  He changes times and seasons;  He removes kings and sets up kings… 4:17 The Most High rules the kingdom of men and gives it to whom He will…

Daniel 4:34, I blessed the Most High, and praised and honored Him who lives forever, for His dominion is an everlasting dominion, and His kingdom endures from generation to generation; 35 all the inhabitants of the earth are accounted as nothing, and He does according to His will among the host of heaven and among the inhabitants of the earth; and none can stay His hand or say to Him, “What have you done?”

Romans 13:1, Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed…

1 Samuel 2:2 “There is none holy like the Lord; there is none besides You… 6  The Lord kills and brings to life; He brings down to Sheol and raises up. 7  The Lord makes poor and makes rich;  He brings low and He exalts. 8  He raises up the poor from the dust…

Proverbs 21:1 The king’s heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord; He turns it wherever He will.

God reigns supreme!  That give me peace.  Who is in any office doesn’t matter because ultimately God is on HIS throne!  My fear is that we are already living in Romans 1:22-25…

Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

Update: Ryan Whitley posted this… CLICK HERE.  As you watch it, keep in mind what Jesus said in John 8:44-47…

You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.  45 But because I tell the truth, you do not believe me. 47 If I tell the truth, why do you not believe me?

    I needed this reminder today, Br. Ron. I already knew it but had let it slip to the back of my mind. God will accomplish what He wills in this election. Thank you.

    When we, as christians, place our seal of approval on a political party, we enter into an area where we must be very careful. Are we christians who fall under the republician umbrella, or are we republicians who are voting christian interests? Pray long an hard on what God would have you do, not a party. God rules…….
