LIKE EVERY OTHER COMMITTED DISCIPLE OF JESUS…. I HAVE WATCHED IN HORROR AND DISBELIEF AS THE AMERICAN PRESIDENTIAL RACE HAS UNFOLDED !!! HOW CAN A NATION OF 330 MILLION PEOPLE …..GIVEN OUR CHRISTIAN HISTORY ……BE LEFT WITH THESE TWO HORRIBLE PRESIDENTIAL CHOICES
THESE TWO CANDIDATES HAVE THE HIGHEST UNFAVORABLE RATINGS OF ANY TWO CANDIDATES IN AMERICAN PRESIDENTIAL HISTORY
CLEARLY THE BEST CANDIDATES THAT AMERICA HAS TO OFFER FOR BOTH POLITICAL PARTIES ARE NOT ON THE BALLOT THIS ELECTION CYCLE VOTER TURNOUT IN THE LAST PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION CYCLE OF ELIGIBLE VOTERS WAS AN ANEMIC 57.2 %
THE CONCEPT OF A DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT, ORIGINATED WITH THE GREEKS IN THEIR CITY STATES . THE WORD IDIOT, COMES FROM THE GREEK WORD ” IDIOTIS ” WHICH MEANT SOMEONE WHO IS ONLY CONCERNED WITH THEIR PRIVATE PERSONAL LIFE.
TO THE GREEKS, AN IDIOT WAS A PERSON WHO WAS NOT INTERESTED IN THE PUBLIC OR CIVIC AREAS OF LIFE, WHO CHOSE NOT TO BE INVOLVED IN THE POLITICAL PROCESS IN THEIR CITY OR STATE. WHAT IS GOING WRONG IN AMERICA
I believe the answer to the question of what is wrong with America, is that we as a nation are under a direct punitive curse as the consequence of our nations rebellion against the biblical morals of the 10 Commandments
And then……to write into law, lifestyle practices that normalize behavior that is in direct opposition to the clear commands of scripture, will shift the culture into a moral death spiral !
There has always been sin in American…….but to legislate sin into law ….that which is in open rebellion and defiance to the clear teaching of scripture, will end up teaching the next generation to disregard the eternal morals and design of God.
To see the rainbow lights symbolizing the LGBT political agenda over the White House the night that our Supreme Court legalized homosexual marriage, I believe was the tipping point for our nation.
That same night of the Supreme Courts affirming decision of gay marriage in America as the law of the land, there was to be a presidential music concert that just happened to be a ” night of gospel music ” with some of the great icons of American gospel music !
To have a presidential gospel concert inside the American White House with the rainbow lights of the LGBT shining over it was a prophetic picture of a nation that has entered into Babylonian captivity. The word Babylon means confusion by mixture or to pour confusion over your head !
Last night I had a visitation from the Holy Spirit to put in a scriptural context the choice before us in this and future democratic elections.
JESUS HAD TWO DISCIPLES THAT ARE A ……PROPHETIC PICTURE OF OUR CURRENT CHOICES FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
JUDAS OR SIMON PETER
Jesus had two extremely dysfunctional disciples of the 12 apostles He chose to represent Him .
Judas Iscariot was called and chosen by Jesus, but because of greed, Judas ended up allowing Satan to have entrance into his life, causing him to violate Gods moral code, resulting in spiritual blindness, that distorted his judgment, and his ability to correctly interpret kingdom reality . Judas was a thief before he was a traitor, stealing money from the ministry purse. He betrayed Jesus for 30 pieces of silver and then kept up the pretense of being a committed disciple by kissing Jesus on the very night of his betrayal.
Simon Peter was also called and chosen by Jesus Himself. The name Simon, means a ” reed blowing in the wind “, meaning outside influences could easily control his opinions and actions . The name Peter, is a prophetic picture of a gem stone being refined and shaped to be set in its proper place in order to be placed in Gods prophetic purposes . The dual name ” Simon Peter ” represents a person who could either be super flaky or stable and responsible depending on the situation .
According to scripture, Simon Peter was a natural leader and owned a fishing business. When under the influence of the Holy Spirit he was powerful & prophetic in God. When controlled by his flesh, Simon Peter was conceited, proud, self centered, self promoting, competitive, with a tendency to be petty and make rash judgments, and was continually overly talkative, We all know that both Judas and Simon Peter betrayed Jesus . The question is …..who had the greater betrayal ….Judas or Simon Peter ?
I believe Simon Peter had the greater betrayal because, he was in the inner circle of the three, he had received a personal revelation that Jesus was the Messiah, also he was on the mount of transfiguration and saw the glorification of Jesus personally. We see a key in Jesus dealing with Simon Peter in the name he called him. When Jesus talked to the flesh man He addressed him as Simon……the reed man .When Jesus addressed him as Peter, it was when he was under the influence of the Holy Spirit and advancing the cause of Christ .
So the question each born again disciple of Jesus Christ must ask himself in this presidential election is this ……who is Judas and who is Peter in this election .
We in America have two terrible options for President in this election………just like Jesus who also had two horrible disciples He was grooming for apostolic leadership.
America is a ” representative democracy ” meaning that, who you vote for in effect represents your morals and values manifesting though their policies and political platforms….. and then God, attaches your voting history to your eternal account.
In other words…..God looks at your voting choice as either a positive choice or negative choice……either binding or loosing righteousness or wickedness in the nation.
Matt 6:33…But seek first the kingdom of God and His moral righteousness, and all these things shall be ……..added to you.
There are no perfect political candidates……but just like there were some Kings of Israel, that were rated more evil by God Himself in the Old Testament record, so it is with our two choices for president this election cycle.
KING AHAB…..DID EVIL MORE THAN ALL BEFORE HIM
1 Kings 16:30…..Now Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the Lord, ….more than all who were before him.
M ANASSEH………DESTROYED ALL THE MORAL & SPIRITUAL REFORMS
2 Kings 21:2 And Manasseh did evil in the sight of the Lord, according to the abominations of the nations whom the Lord had cast out before the children of Israel.
2 Kings 21:3 For he rebuilt the high places which Hezekiah his father had destroyed; he raised up altars for Baal, and made a wooden image, as Ahab king of Israel had done; and he worshiped all the host of heaven and served them.
W ITCHCRAFT…..CHILD MURDER
2 Kings 21:6 Also he made his son pass through the fire, practiced soothsaying, used witchcraft, and consulted spiritists and mediums. He did much evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke Him to anger.
E XAMPLE… …if you knowingly voted for a person who is pro abortion, and who is aggressively promoting policies that continue the murder of children….I believe that the blood of those innocent children are on your hands .
LONG AFTER THE PERSON IS OUT OF OFFICE
Long after the person is out of the office of president …..the policies they pushed and caused to be made into laws will continue to shape the American culture for all of our children and grandchildren for decades to come .
Long after that person is out of the presidential office, their choices for the judges in our nation will continue to echo their policies and morals for decades to come.
PILATE OFFERING THEM A CHOICE BETWEEN JESUS AND BARABBAS
Matt 27:24…When Pilate saw that he could not prevail at all, but rather that a tumult was rising, he took water and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, “I am innocent of the blood of this just Person. You see to it.”
Matt 27:25..And all the people answered & said, “His blood be on us & on our children.
YOU CANNOT WASH YOUR HANDS, FROM VOTING IN THIS ELECTION
YOUR VOTING OR NON VOTING DECISION, RELEASES EITHER BLOOD OR BLESSING ON YOUR CHILDREN
JESUS PREDICTS PETERS BETRAYAL AND RESTORATION
Luke 22:31 And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat.
Luke 22:32 But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.”
Jesus addressed Peter as ….Simon, Simon….a ” double flesh man “…..self centered, arrogant, sensual, proud, foolish in words and deeds .
Judas on the other hand was cold and calculating, greedy for money, betraying Jesus for thirty pieces of silver, working with the corrupt religious leaders to destroy Jesus.
Without having ” prophetic eyes ” we will vote for a candidate based on what we see in the flesh, not based on what Gods plans are for the future of our nation and our children.
Even though Simon Peter had truly outrageous behavior, Jesus knew Simon Peters heart was turntable back into the purposes of God unlike the heart of Judas.
Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump both have indefensible past histories of bad behavior, but the question you have to ask yourself …..which one is Simon Peter and which one is Judas.
