Message To My People ~          The Prophets Do Speak 

Does Jesus have your vote?


   In many social circles there are two subjects that people seek to avoid in their conversations, in order to avoid controversy and heated arguments, and those are (1) religion and (2) politics. May I be bold in this article to speak on both! Here in the USA, we have just witnessed an historic election, where a little known African-American first-term Senator has been elected to be our next president, the President-Elect (or ‘PE’ in this article). I sincerely wish well to him, and to the USA that will be under his hand. We should definitely pray a lot for him, he does not have an easy job.


   I am privileged, and grateful, to live in a land where the right to participate in the selection of the nations’ leaders is afforded me. Down through history so much of mankind (and also much of it today) has had little or no opportunity to choose their leaders. Often men have  had to suffer under corrupt leaders, or even tyrants whom the people did not choose.  We are blessed in the USA with many freedoms, and we should be grateful to God for them.  My concern is not so much for the USA, but for the Christians who are in it, and that is the point of this article. From the greater viewpoint of eternity, we must realize that the USA, like all nations, one day very soon, will cease to exist as a self-governing nation. That will take place no later than the Battle of Armageddon, when Christ’s millennial kingdom is established. (Dan 2:44-45; Rev; 11:15; 19:15) After the 1000 year millennial reign of Christ and the saints, then this visible universe, and all that is in it, including the USA, will be destroyed by God himself, in order to bring in His everlasting heavenly kingdom! (2Pet 3:10-13; Rev 20:11; 21:1-3) In that Kingdom the overcomers will rule and reign with Christ as ‘presidents’ eternally. (Rev 3:21; 5:10) Our life in this world is a testing ground, in the which we are called to walk worthy of that great vocation (Eph 4:1-4). In view of that eternal calling my question is, “Did Christians truly use their vote for the glory of God?” (1Cor 10:31) Also what were the motives and intents that influenced the Christians when they voted? (1Cor 4:5; Heb 4:12-13) I would like to address these issues from a scriptural viewpoint.


   Without doubt, voting is a complex matter, having many issues that lead one to his choice of leaders. Although this article principally deals with the PE and his policies, President Bush and Senator McCain have both been the subjects of criticism. Many Christians were understandably displeased that Senator McCain is divorced and remarried. I do not say that they are perfect leaders, and apparently much of the electorate were displeased with them, and this entered into their decision to select the current PE.


   Apparently there were people who voted either FOR or AGAINST the PE in great part because of his race. I would view both groups as clearly wrong! Race should NOT be an issue (Matt 22:16; Acts 10:34), but rather the policies, purposes, and character of the candidates. Personally, I can think of many Black Americans who could make great presidents of our land. If our Pastor in Washington DC, an African-American, were running, I would have gladly voted for him. But, I am sure he would say to me, “Brother, I already have a higher calling than that!”


   Our concern about the PE is his strongly immoral policies. I will enumerate a few of the PE’s positions here. The PE has shown the following record:


1.  was a co-sponsor of the “Freedom of Choice Act” - a bill that would invalidate virtually all state and federal limitations on abortion, including partial-birth abortion.

2.  has said that he will make preserving “Roe vs. Wade” a priority as President.

3. has voted against “parental notification laws” to require the parent of a minor to be informed of their daughter’s decision for an abortion.

4.  Voted in favor of funding embryonic stem cell research.

5.  Co-sponsored a bill that would have allowed the cloning of human embryos for research.

6.  Would NOT support a constitutional amendment that defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman.

7.  Advocates repeal of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act.

8. Supports state-sanctioned homosexual marriages.

9. Favors justices with “empathy”, and expansive, progressive views of the Constitution.

10.  Would force some “faith-based” groups to hire from outside their beliefs.

11.  Has always been a critic of “School choice vouchers”.


   I wish that the PE will prove my concerns wrong, and that one day God Himself will say that this PE was the greatest president the USA ever had. But, based on the PE’s stated positions, I cannot at this moment foresee that happening. One thing seems clear from the election, is that America is becoming LESS moral.  I would like to make it clear that the PE is NOT the problem, but rather it is the hearts and minds of America where the problem lies. I dare say that 50 years ago, any man who had the immoral positions of the PE, would NEVER have come close to being elected President! Sadly, it is a testimony that America has changed, and NOT for the better! The election again proves that we as a nation do NOT regard the morals, values, and words of God very highly. And that is what is so grievous.


   I am particularly shocked at why many Christians voted for the PE, knowing his strong anti-scriptural stands. A sad thought is that their understanding of the mind of God may be lacking, and/or their real commitment to Christ may be shallow! Although the PE himself spent years attending a Church, from my view he is not a ‘saved’ man. You cannot support immorality, and be a moral person yourself. The two are mutually exclusive (Titus 1:16; 2Sam 23:3, James 2:17-26, 1Jn3:9-10). If your commitment to Christ is shallow, then your commitment to the clear words of God will also be shallow, and that will be often seen in your choices, including how and why you vote. Jesus told us that we are to be the salt of the earth, and the lights of the world (Matt 5:13-16).  May we not allow that light to become darkness!


   Many reading this article will fall into one of three categories:


 (1) You may not be a US citizen, but may be able to vote in some country for your leaders. Then I hope that this article may inspire you to use that privilege in a godly way, to affect your nation and it’s leaders for Christ. Also, it is crucial to remember that how you vote now, will also affect your right to sit on God’s throne judging the nations with Him eternally! We must judge matters correctly here in this world in order to be overcomers, and to be allowed the privilege to judge matters in heaven! (Jn 5:30, Luke 16:10-12) This is CRUCIAL, and you should bear this closely in mind when you vote! (Eph 4:1; 1Cor 6:2-5)


  (2) Perhaps you are a US citizen, and a Christian, and did not vote for the PE. You might feel your effort to help stem the increasing tide of sin has failed. You should not feel dismayed, and discouraged, since we know that a worldwide growth in sin, is predicted in the word of God, and you are witnessing it come to pass (Matt 24:12, Luke 17:24-30; 2Tim3:1-5). One reason why God’s children should not get discouraged when sin seems to win the day, is that we know from God’s word, the end of the story of human history. “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” (Lk 21:28) Jesus will soon appear in a moment, and in the twinkling of an eye for His Bride. You are called to be in that number, and inherit a perfect, incorruptible, and everlasting kingdom. “Come ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. (Matt25:34)” Seven years after the Rapture, the confusion, darkness, and rebellion of this earth will end abruptly and cataclysmically at the bodily appearance of Earth’s true King and Savior, Jesus Christ. Sadly, the nations of this earth will gather to fight against his return to power, when he comes back with His saints. (Jude 14-15; Rev 17:14; Rev 19:11-21;) Truly the best is yet to come for God’s faithful children.   Hallelujah!


  (3) If you are a U. S. Citizen, and a Christian, and you did vote for the PE, then may I sincerely ask to you to consider your motives and intentions as to WHY? Did you really ask God how you could vote for the “glory of God? (1Cor 10:31)” Remember that the motives of our hearts will be examined and judged of the Lord on Judgment Day.  Here a few possible issues that may have affected your choice, and my response to such issues as well:


   -     Firstly, you may feel that it is a secret ballot, so then you don’t have to answer to anyone about your vote, and in part you are correct! But, on the Day of Judgment, all of mankind will have to answer to Jesus, and that will be in front of all of the creation as well. (Rom 2:16; 14:11-12, 2Cor 5:9-11, Rev 20:11-15) Better get your answers ready for Him!


   -    Maybe you were ignorant of all of the anti-scriptural policies that the PE holds to.  Please!

Next time educate yourself BEFORE you vote!


   -     Maybe you feel that you ‘weighed in a balance’ the good and bad of both candidates, and found the PE winning. May I say unto you, that in my view of the mind of God, the anti- scriptural policies that are promoted by the PE are like proverbial 800 pound gorillas sitting on the PE’s side of the ‘see-saw’. How then could he come out on top? To equate, in terms of importance, such life and death matters like homosexuality and abortion, to temporal matters such as economics, is an absolute abomination to God! Four thousand innocent babies are put to death daily in the USA through abortion. Eternal souls are daily going into eternal hellfire for the sin of homosexuality. If you treat those facts just like “one of many things to consider that are of equal weight”, then you have terribly misunderstood the heart, mind, and values of God.


   -     Some Christians voted for the PE, because they believe that they will do better economically under his leadership. May I simply say, “Shame on them!” That selfish and worldly attitude is a grief to the mind of Christ.  Sadly, the same temptation that Satan used on Jesus, he is tempting the Christians with today. (Job 1:9-12; Lk 4:5-7, 1Tim 6:5-12) Is it not the same attitude as Esau, who for one morsel of food sold his birthright? (Heb12:16-17) If your motive was money, then may I ask you, “What will you say to the millions of ‘aborted’ souls when you see them in the afterlife?” Will you answer them?, “Well, I really was against abortion, but you know, the PE said he would put more money in my pocket!” Heaven would weep!


   -     Maybe you heard that the PE is a ‘very smart man,’ that can solve the problems of the USA and the world.  To that I say, “Who is to define what ‘smart’ is?”  “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom” (Ps 111:10; Is 8:20). May I simply ask you, “Is it smart to tell a man that he should be able to marry another man?” And to solve the nations’ problems, may I remind you that “except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it.” (Ps 127:1)


   -     Maybe some felt that the PE is a dynamic speaker, and can inspire the people. May I say that dynamic speaking is not at all bad, but it does not impress God in the least (Ex 4:10-12; Jer 1:4-9; Acts 4:13; Acts 12:20-23; 2Cor 10:10; 11:6). The more important issues are the contents of one’s speech. To God, character is far more important in a leader, than dynamic speaking ability and charisma (1Tim 3:2). You also should know that when the Anti-Christ does come, he will absolutely thrill people with his speaking ability. (Dan 7:20-25; Rev 13:5) But, the Anti- Christ’s persuasive talents will be inspired by the Devil himself. (Rev 13:2)


   -     Maybe you dislike the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and you wanted the PE to bring the troops home. I could not blame you for such a desire. War is tragic, and we are living in a dangerous world that will not know true peace until the Millennium. (Matt 24:6-7) Sending soldiers into war is perhaps the hardest decisions for a President to make. But consider this one point: A few thousand US soldiers have died in Iraq and Afghanistan. Most at least, chose to be in the military, and voluntarily went into those dangerous regions. Many feel there are just causes worthy of fighting for. If you think the toll is great, do also consider again that 4000 innocent babies are slaughtered daily in the USA. May I simply ask you, “Which is the worse tragedy?”


   -     Some Christians might say, “Well, I just have one vote, and can do little to improve America.” To that, I say that you are ‘special’ to God. Even one person who uses his abilities and choices for God, can have a tremendous impact for good on others! Believe it! As one bought with the blood of his Son, He has a special place or ‘vocation’ for you that the unconverted cannot inherit (Eph 4:1). You are called to be a ‘president’ in his eternal kingdom and to sit on His throne, judging with Him all things in eternity. (Lk 22:28-30; Rev 3:21). Although you have only one vote, it is important to God how you use it. “Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord. (Matt 25:23)”. Also consider that you are the light of the world. The world does not understand the mind of God, nor the awesome prophetic events which are soon to come to pass, but you do! If so, then you must judge things in this world EXACTLY as He would judge them (1Cor 6:2-5). Remember that you are an ambassador for Christ to this world (Matt 10:32-33; 2Cor 5:20), and your reward will be very great in eternity if you stand on the Lord’s side. Often you will have to take unpopular positions, if you stand with the Word of God, but remember that you are standing with and for Christ (Jn 7:7; 15:18-25). Perhaps you have made mistakes in judging things as Christ would judge them, but let us use the opportunity now to renew our commitment to Him, and be lights in this world. Give your life, your ambitions, your choices, and yes, even your vote to Christ’s cause, and you will never regret it. You will also be found as  a ‘President’ with Christ in His everlasting kingdom!
