Commentary By: Gordon King
As the days roll by we get closer and closer to the U.S. Presidential election. We must as American citizens make a decision, a decision to vote and a decision on who to vote for.
There are those who believe as Christians that they don’t need to vote, that it really won’t matter in the end. They say that our hope is not in government, and I agree it’s not! However, as believers we are to continue on living in the world until the return of our Savior. We are not to stop living, not to go hide in a cave and wait for Christ’s return for us, but to occupy and do what the good Lord has put us here to do.
We are here on earth to be a light to the world, to make righteous and holy decisions, to do the right thing, and that includes voting for our leaders. God will make the final decision, He will put into office whomever He chooses. But, we are put here to perform the will of God on earth until His return. We are to support leaders whose values fall in line with God’s values.
If you are a true believer in Jesus Christ then you will want to vote in whomever supports God’s values the most. There is no perfect candidate, and in this election it’s not about the candidate but about their values. God hates murder, especially of innocent unborn children, He also says that homosexuality is an abomination to Him. So do we in our right mind as Christians, as followers of Jesus Christ then vote for a candidate that supports these things?!
God did not approve of His people killing innocent blood and sacrificing their children to idols, in fact He punished them greatly for it!
“Because they have forsaken Me and made this an alien place, because they have burned incense in it to other gods whom neither they, their fathers, nor the kings of Judah have known, and have filled this place with the blood of the innocents 5 (they have also built the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings to Baal, which I did not command or speak, nor did it come into My mind), 6 therefore behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord, “that this place shall no more be called Tophet or the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, but the Valley of Slaughter. 7 And I will make void the counsel of Judah and Jerusalem in this place, and I will cause them to fall by the sword before their enemies and by the hands of those who seek their lives; their corpses I will give as meat for the birds of the heaven and for the beasts of the earth. 8 I will make this city desolate and a hissing; everyone who passes by it will be astonished and hiss because of all its plagues. 9 And I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and the flesh of their daughters, and everyone shall eat the flesh of his friend in the siege and in the desperation with which their enemies and those who seek their lives shall drive them to despair.“
Is this where America is headed for the innocent killing and sacrificing of millions of unborn babies?
The good Lord also calls homosexuality an abomination and a sin.
“If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.”
1 Corinthians 6:9-10
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.“
The U.S. government not only allows homosexual behavior, it endorses and supports it! The good Lord has spoken and said that homosexuality is a sin and an abomination to Him, and that homosexuals will not inherit the kingdom of heaven. Sodom and Gomorrah were over run with sexual perversion and sinful behavior, and what did He do to them?!
“as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.“
“For we will destroy this place, because the outcry against them has grown great before the face of the Lord, and the Lord has sent us to destroy it.“
“Then the Lord rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the Lord out of the heavens.“
“Look, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: She and her daughter had pride, fullness of food, and abundance of idleness; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. 50 And they were haughty and committed abomination before Me; therefore I took them away as I saw fit.“
Is this what lies ahead for America? Have we committed such grave sins in the eyes of the Lord that He will take us away as He sees fit as He did with Sodom and Gomorrah? We need to change our ways, to return to the morals and values of God Almighty. A vote for Hilary Clinton is a vote against the morals and values of God. It is more human sacrifice and more abominations to the Lord of heaven above. A vote for neither candidate is also a vote for Hilary Clinton and so is not voting at all!
The next U.S. President will decide who the next several Supreme Court justices will be, and these justices will determine the fate of our nation. They will bring in either godly values or ungodly values, righteousness or unrighteousness, more abominations to God or support of His laws and ways.
The government that we now have is anti-Christ and pro Islam, this will continue with Hilary Clinton as president and it will only intensify. The persecution of Christians in America will increase, and it will whomever becomes president, however much quicker with Hilary Clinton.
We’ve already seen many Christians in America being persecuted for following their faith over the past eight years, this is just the beginning. Not only that but president Obama just gave away the internet to the United Nations who does not have to follow our laws. The United Nations is anti-Christ and pro-Islam, it won’t be long before we are censored to the point of not being allowed to share our faith online anymore. Before we are persecuted for it, either fined, imprisoned, or both!
As a believer in Jesus Christ you have an obligation to vote for our next leader. Don’t follow the world, follow God! What does God say about all of this? Vote how you will, as for me I will vote according to whomever best supports God’s laws, morals, and values. Whomever best supports Christianity and our right to practice our religion without being persecuted for it!
The world is not going to get any better until the return of Christ. However, we can slow the progression of evil in America by shining our light and doing what is right in the eyes of God! Thereby giving us more freedom to share the gospel message and helping those in need.
There is a bible verse that tells we reap what we sow, and we have seen over the past eight years the reaping of what we have sown by voting in Obama as president not just once but twice! A vote for Hilary Clinton is yet another vote for Obama and his policies to destroy America!
Perhaps America needs to be shaken to the core in order for people to wake up! What will it take for people to open their eyes to the truth? Just maybe four more years of Obama!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
