I will admit after all the nastiness that I witnessed from Donald Trump during the Presidential campaign, against the man that God had motivated me to support; I was not a fan. However, I am so thankful that I trust Christ and He is in control when I have been deceived by the liberal media and my own deceptive eyes. It reminds me of the scripture:
2 Corinthians 5:7 “We live by believing and not by seeing.”
Glasses are the perfect symbol that our eyes have limitations; too many people trust and focus on them. Some of the most insightful people have been blind and it is because Faith is the only option in their world. So I am so grateful when life turns out differently than I expected! God knows me so much better than I even know myself.
Politics sure does bring out the true colors and lack of faith in peoples behavior. Everybody hates politics and it has become taboo to post or talk about it on social media; in return people don’t have a clue about what is actually going on in the government, which should be for the people and by the people. Government is involved in so many areas of our existence and yet the majority bury their heads in the sand. The reality of ignorance and hate of politics has been in the spotlight and it isn’t coming from Trump or the Conservatives. Liberal Democrats suddenly have amnesia and are fighting him over the same policies his predecessor’s had. I have never witnessed such vitriol from the left and the extreme of right and wrong and good vs. evil is playing out as the Bible has indicated. The above image could replace God for Conservatives behaviors and Satan for Liberal behaviors and would be accurate. Actions speak volumes when you aren’t spiritually deaf.
Of course there will be those that claim you cannot judge all democrats or conservatives by their label categories but I disagree? I mean can you judge all KKK members by their ideology? Who would continue to support and be associated with an organization that did not represent their values? I simply can’t; my soul and character is a priority and so is my conscience. The Bible references scripture to “guard our heart.” The proof is in the results! I can’t help but see throughout life 2 distinctive ideologies in life. It is impossible to serve two masters; so you either submit, honor, and live accordingly to the Bible and Gods Word or you live the opposite. If you apply eternity to the equation; people will either go to heaven or hell. There is no place in between and the spirit and physical collide here on earth; it is only after death that they separate. I’m just glad life has crushed my physical body aka flesh, pride and allowed my spirit to soar beyond the carnal in the world. I think life is actually pretty simplistic if you are able to ignore all the noise and distractions that Satan places in our tracks.
The current political environment has also exposed a vast amount of what I call “Christians In Name Only” and have shown insurmountable hate from a bunch of frauds that believe they are right with God; they can roll scripture off their tongue all while spewing verbal venom at the drop of a post.
“Thou Shall Not Steal” goes far beyond the physical; it most certainly applies to the spiritual; stealing opportunity, experience, peace, and joy, are all wrong by Gods standard. People think nothing of the intention of their words and the motivation of their sick hearts. It sure does reveal a persons true nature to those inclined by the spiritual. If you aren’t able to recognize the human spirit, it’s impossible to witness the Holy Spirit since that isn’t visible to the eyes? Again, it really does separate the sheep from the wolves in society. We have a major theft problem in society presently and it is a symptom of Satan!
If I hear more garbage about Russia interfering with the elections I think I could scream; the shear insanity! More than 50% of voters didn’t want Hillary Clinton as President either but the Democrat party is now the party of denial and demons apparently? I didn’t vote for Trump, however, if there was a re-vote I would in a heart beat. God is Sovereign and He has allowed Trump to lead our country; that is reality!
Romans 13:1-5New Living Translation (NLT)
Respect for Authority
13 Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. 2 So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and they will be punished. 3 For the authorities do not strike fear in people who are doing right, but in those who are doing wrong. Would you like to live without fear of the authorities? Do what is right, and they will honor you. 4 The authorities are God’s servants, sent for your good. But if you are doing wrong, of course you should be afraid, for they have the power to punish you. They are God’s servants, sent for the very purpose of punishing those who do what is wrong. 5 So you must submit to them, not only to avoid punishment, but also to keep a clear conscience.
Too many people deny God’s power and authority. Government has become a false idol and government has become a tool for Satan.
“But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.
Jeremiah 17:7-8 NLT
It all just continues to break my heart. The world needs truth and Jesus in politics again; so I try to be a small voice of sanity and thankful for the few steady politicians with integrity like Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Trey Gowdy, Ted Cruz, and locally Adam Kinzinger.
