Should I vote if I don’t like the candidate choices? Should I vote for Elvis (or other 3rd party)?
Are you feeling blasted, divided and confused on a new level about Election 2016? Are you sick of all the rhetoric? Both secular and Christian people seem to be in the same boat, confused, angry, and disgruntled. Many are choosing not to vote because neither candidate seems to have all or even some of the character traits we look for in a statesman for the highest office of President.
With all the information out there it’s hard to know who to believe.
3 things to consider as you weigh out your options:
1.The U.S. hangs in the balance
At least 3-5 Supreme Court Justices will be chosen by the next president. Your vote will have a deciding factor in whom is chosen. This will determine the path for America for generations to come. What are the BIG issues facing our nation and WHO do you want making those decisions in the Supreme Court? The president will be in office four years, maybe eight at most. Supreme Court Justices will be there a lifetime.
You can go to the websites of the Republican and Democratic parties and read what they stand for. Vote for the platform that supports key issues that will affect your children and grandchildren. This election will have a direct impact on THEM. Do you want the Constitution to be upheld? Or do you want a progressive doctrine that we have seen in the last year? Christians put in jail for disagreeing with an ideology or bakeries closed and religious freedom thrown out the door? (Unless you are Muslim, in which case they ignore your beliefs.) This is not the time to sit on the sidelines and hope for the best. If you don’t like the candidates vote for the platform that will choose Justices over the next 4-8 years that support what you hold most important.
2. Search out TRUTH and weigh it out by the BIG picture which is God’s laws and Kingdom principles.
I had a dream a couple of years ago. In that dream I flew to Heaven and into large room. In the room was a gigantic wooden desk. On a corner of that desk was a stack of two desk organizers trays. On each tray was puzzle pieces in specific shapes standing on end in the shape of a nation. One nation represented on top and one nation represented on bottom. The pieces suddenly were jostled like a child’s Trouble Board with the POP-O-Matic dome in the center. Each piece became jumbled and chaotic. Then the nations changed and I could make out the shape of one was America. The puzzle pieces were in shapes of the states and some animals. When the the pieces were jostled like the dome on the Trouble Board game and became jumbled and chaotic one puzzle piece appeared in the center of the US, kinda over Missouri, and it said TRUTH in large letters. I woke up and knew to start praying for America for Truth and for all lies and corrupt behavior to be revealed and brought into the light…Everything done in secret brought into the light.
I ask you to PRAY for Truth to be revealed during the next couple of weeks and even after.
I realize neither candidate is totally truthful. They are both carnal. However, I can guarantee one is way more deceitful than the other. More controversy surrounds Hillary Clinton than any other candidate ever during her entire 30 years in the public sector.
America is being shaken to the core. Every issue that has lied dormant is come out to show exactly how dependent on God we must become.
3. Remember the two P’s “Pray and Praise” more than you listen to the media or the news outlets or Social Media.
Prayer and petitioning to God is our only hope. Praise releases His Presence.
Here’s what I decided to do…
First, I know I am voting for Trump.
Not because he is the best pick but because he will be the most fair to religious freedom, he will choose Supreme Court Justices that will uphold the Constitution and not use it to back their own ever-changing cultural agendas. He will be fearless to fight for our Nation and what is best for us. And I can honestly say that I see the media onslaught on his character as false. God sees the heart of a man. I see Trump like King David in the Old Testament, he was far from perfect. I see God’s hand on Trumps life right now. No other recent presidential candidate has ever been so clear as to his support of religious freedom. Look at his running mate!
(side-note if the elected president is killed which Vice-President do you want as your president??)
Second, I stopped listening to all the voices in the media and I am trusting God.
I am doing my part to vote for the platform that supports key points that are deal breakers for me….national security, abortion, Amendment 2, and religious freedoms.
I’m choosing to spend more of my time in prayer for Truth to come out and lies, deceit and corruption to be revealed.
Third, I am praising God more and more and declaring HIS Truth over us.
He loves us, He will never leave us, He will never forsake us! God is on the HIS throne and I serve HIM alone. No matter who is elected God is still in control of my life and HE will be with me. HE is my HOPE, not a president.
Notice, I am still voting because as God’s advocate, ekklesia on earth, and a citizen of this great-God-raised-up-nation- it is my right, duty and responsibility to vote. If I don’t vote, I have no right to gripe later. (SMILE)
As you prayerfully consider your choices in Election 2016, I am praying for you…the moral, value-based, good people of America. This election hurts your heart. It is the nastiest election campaigning in history.
The campaigns are almost over. Then begins the next presidency that will decide the future for the next 30-40 years, the America that your grand-children will grow up in. This is not the time to sit this one out!
Heavenly Father, I thank you for all the kind-hearted, good people, that you raised up in America for such a time as this. Remove blinders from our eyes and reveal TRUTH to our hearts. Give us a clear understanding of our choices and reveal YOUR heart to us. Remove the doubt and fear that causes the disappointment in our hearts and minds. Release hope and peace to us, your children.
I release TRUTH over America that every corruption will be revealed and laid out in the open for all to see. Expose the enemy and roots of iniquity. I pray that every spiritual enemy that is binding up truth be taken out and every deception silenced. I pray that God’s will be done on earth and in America as it is in Heaven. In Jesus Name, Amen!
