the last thing i desire is to cause division among the brethren. but this weight on my heart which does sadden me... i can no longer not speak. and i hear the same statement a lot from believers, especially during election years. which is...
"im not going to vote, or i cant vote because" ... and its because so and so just aint holy enough for them. and yet all have sinned, all fall short of Gods glory... of His standard for all of us to live. this includes me and you. now we all look to King David as at least a "fairly" righteous man. The Book says its so. All scripture is God breathed. and the people loved David who was under him. and yet this is a man who did take a mans life unjustly only because he saw his wife one evening and desired to have her... and basically, he raped her.... basically. psalm 51 was written one year after his guilty act according to many scholars where he repented. and we know it is God who sets up nations and brings them down. who sets up kings and brings them down. we also know His mercy is new every morning. and that He can blot out our transgression as if it never happened, and according to God... He wont ever even so much as mention it to us again.
I recently unsubscribed to a youtube ministry channel i followed for some years because the guy running the channel said he refused to vote. and why? Voting is like a talent thats given to us by God... because He sets up nations.... and ours is set up to be able to vote. truly, by not voting your are burying your talent in the sand... and we know by scripture God is austere... and He will take what you got and give it to another if you do not produce more by what He gave. and this wont be taken lightly as this right to vote was afforded us by spilled blood. men bled and died so you could have this... and whats God say about spilled blood???... well, He told cain He could hear ables blood crying out to Him from the field. all those men killed in war so we can be free... all those babies ripped to pieces in the womb laid on a stainless tray... their blood cries out to Him... His ear aint to heavy it cant hear....aint aint aint!
and what do we know to be truth? trump has stood against abortion and infanticide.. something that biden will push for. we also know its Gods way to give man a chance, after all while we were yet sinners Christ did die for our sins. and also... God searches for even one to stand in the gap between Him and the people. And whats God say in Ezekiel 22... He searches for this man to lead... to stand in the gap... so that He will not destroy us. let me say this again... so He will not destroy us.
and yet, i keep hearing believers making comments like choosing to vote is a moral dilemma for them because neither choice is good enough for them. and yet, God Almighty chose David... and God Almighty who knows all things before they happen... knew David would commit murder and rape. but you cant seem to bring yourself to vote because a choice between the two isnt good enough for YOU??? no one is perfect. this world aint perfect.
dont take this the wrong way... but come down off your holy high horse... and vote for the one person who you know stands against these abominations that you despise, that burden your heart. do not bury your talent in the sand. stand for whats right. at least try to establish righteousness in the land. dont sit by and do nothing and give chance to wicked men ruling, even when we have all done wicked in Gods eyes.
God gave mens lives so you could vote... so you could establish whats right in the land. do not throw it away. once you turn your back on opportunity... time will not give it back to you. its gone.
you may think its no use... its going to be bad no matter what... ok. but why sit by and do nothing? its the same thing as not having a job and praying for a job but sitting on the couch waiting for a job to come knock at your door. faith without works is dead.
