“Biblical Christians Must Not Refuse To Vote.”
This week's particular article is specifically “geared” and directed towards the Bible believing Christian. Of course all people-everywhere are very welcome to read the remaining portion of this article but I suppose I should give all of you who are not Bible believing Christians a fair warning here....what you are about to read here and throughout the remaining segment of this blog article will most likely make you feel quite frustrated, angry, anxious, perhaps even a feeling of want of violence towards me. I say this with all earnest and honesty, not that I am writing this article to purposely antagonize anyone---no, not at all but my sole purpose in writing this article as in all past articles, is to declare Biblical truth so that we may keep in following Christ's commandments and help all avoid worldly and demonically demented attitudes and behavior. Once again... a fair warning has now been given to all non-Christians those that are religious, worldly and certainly for those who do not believe nor follow the Christian Bible....please keep in mind, this particular article was/is not being written to you as a target audience.
It is nearly election day 2012 and within this year and next( as also my kababayan in the Philippines-2013) there will be many national elections across the world. Here in the United States, we have an important election coming up this November 6th, 2012 where we will choose or retain our next President. As all should remember as US Citizens, our Founding Fathers were mostly Biblical Christians(not all, but the majority were) and we were given certain freedoms in our US Constitution that were fought for by them in their sacrifice of shed blood during wars over the years so that we could maintain those God given and Natural rights. Among those rights, is the right to vote. Our Fore Fathers sought to it that we could maintain our government “of the people, for the people” for many generations if, that is “if”, we were willing to keep it(Benjamin Franklin quote) through the maintaining of a form of Government that revered God of the Bible.
Over the course of years, especially during the Twentieth Century, many Americans, especially Biblical Christians lost site in regards to what was and is always most important... that being which is the maintaining of our nation as a “Christian nation.” It was declared so in many of our earliest Founding Father's writings. The unfortunate and sad reality is that, many so called “Biblical Christians” over the years however since our American Founding Father's have become quite lazy in regards to maintaining our light in a dark world. We as Biblical Christians have come to lose our voice that is much needed in a very, very sick and perverse world by ignoring the Great Commission and by putting into political offices ungodly and wicked men and women. Unsavory and evil people like Nixon, Carter and the Clinton's and many others just like them(or worse !) have been helped put in place of political office through the vote of Bible believing Christians either by the actual vote for these type of people or by refusing to vote what-so-ever.
My brothers and sisters in Christ, we now suffer greatly and have before us some of the worst disasters in our nation's history and some who have voted for such wicked women and men have blood on their hands. We as a nation are at a great crossroads by God's design as so many Biblical Christians have compromised their faith. We have been put in a place of great discomfort across our land and it is something we cannot escape without first repenting of our past sins including the sin of the voting for evil men and women. This of course means we must take Biblical corrective action---as in James 2:17-20. We must make right the wrongs we have made in the past. If we have taken part in voting for, or even in ignoring the vote of replacing a wicked woman or man, we must repent of that sinful act and vote for the most Godly person we can find on the ballot this coming election day.
I am aware of who the two main political party candidates are this in this year's election cycle. I will tell you if you ask me--- I am not endorsing Obama, Romney nor even Ron Paul. I cannot and I will not endorse any of these men. I will remind you however that we as Bible believing Christians will have to give an account for anything we say of do here on earth when we stand before the Lord on Judgment Day(Matthew 12:36). You will indeed need to be able to justify Biblically whom you vote for on Judgment Day before the LORD, the question arises here... Will you vote for a candidate out of fear ?, out of peer pressure ?, out of “fine sounding words from politicians, or will you do the real Biblical research and vote for the candidate that best describes what is in the Bible and what even one of our many Christian American Founding Fathers, John Jay declared... “ Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.”
It certainly is easy for non-believers and fake Christians to vote for evil women and men...since after all, they can justify anything because they have not the mind of Christ, they are carnally minded as the Bible speaks in Romans 8:6-10. Those who belong to the world will undoubtedly endorse and tell you to vote for political candidates just like them. They understand not the matters of the Bible so who can really blame them when they vote for evil at any level, even “the lesser of two evils.” We must remember who we are in Christ and who we represent. The Bible in 2 Corinthians 6:17 states quite clearly; “Therefore come out from among them, and be you separate, says the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you...” We as Bible believing Christians must make our stand this election cycle. As the world turns darker and darker and more and more are deceived by the devil and leaving the faith(read Galatians 6:7 !), we must be ready irregardless of what the world and believers of doctrines of demons will tell us... we must vote, and we must vote for the most Godly man available. Do your research on the candidates, check their beliefs against the Bible and then act... Vote !
Finally brothers and sisters in Christ, I leave you with this quote from Noah Webster, one of our great American Founding Fathers. Read it carefully and keep it close to your heart this coming Election Day ! ...
"When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers, "just men who will rule in the fear of God." The preservation of [our] government depends on the faithful discharge of this Duty; if the citizens neglect their Duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made, not for the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes; corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the Laws; the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the citizen will be violated or disregarded. If [our] government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect the Divine Commands, and elect bad men to make and administer the Laws." -History of United States by Noah Webster.
