Free-will choices

Recently in the news a female Senator pointed to the book of Daniel to say that a certain candidate was appointed by God.
It does say that all that come to lead a nation is placed there by God. However, it clearly states that some may be lowly.
A prime example of lowly would be Hitler.
Now I am not comparing any candidate to Hitler, but both candidates do in the truest definition of the word qualify for the lowly department.
In a recent post I explained that Christian of their own accord and free-will with a full understanding of the Bible are to only seek out those that are called “servant leaders.”
Three candidates qualified for this description and two of them clearly used that description. None made it to the candidacy of neither major party, nor any others running for the office with any large support meet it either.
God gave humanity “free-will.”
Does this mean we will make the right choice?
Well since humanity is at its base corrupt the answer to that question in a majority of the time we will fail.
Mark 7:21 – For from within, out of a person’s heart, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22 adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit, lustful desires, envy, slander, pride, and foolishness. 23 All these vile things come from within; they are what defile you.
That is why we have the Bible. This is the tool we are to study, to learn and use when it comes time to make major decisions such as that which has been happening this year and is still before us in November.
What I am about to say is now documented fact.
Since two people clearly stated that they were “servant leaders,” and yet never made it to become the candidate for their respective party. Then due to the free-will of humanity, and the lack of understanding of the teachings found in Matthew and Mark. Those citizens that felt they were following the Bible yet did not vote for either of the servant leaders failed God.
Now this nation must deal with the ramifications of this uneducated selection.
How to correct it is to become a student of the Bible and to hold those in all political office responsible.
What was required that any that have been in office for more than twelve years should have been voted out of office. This again in many cases was not done. So again this nation must deal with the ramifications.
How to correct it going forward from this point.
Look for servant leaders, which know the Bible and follow it as best they can.
If they or their party denies God… do not vote for them.
If they or their party supports the death of the innocent called abortion…. Do not vote for them.
If they or their party supports immorality and sin…. Do not vote for them.
This will get you back on the right track to start with.
What is more important is to learn the Bible, especially if you have asked Christ to be your Savior.
Do not take the words of other, but your own understand of the Bible.
Then pray to God and His Son the Lord Jesus Christ for help for the trying times we are about to enter into as we head into the next level of judgment from God.

Confessions of a screwed up middle aged man: I am so glad this is not all there is

As I have posted before this life we now live within is a test. Within it is pitfalls and heartache; happiness and joy. Things we ourselves think would be good for us God says is not, or at least not now.
Yet it still hurts, especially when you are led to believe something you had hoped for will happen and then suddenly find out there was a “mistake” made and it is not going to happen after all.
I look forward to the days when honesty will always be given. I look forward to hearing true praise for your service and not be lip service. Humans these days do not know the Bible. Humans these days do not care to truly learn it and understand it, for they would rather seek after their own goals and glory no matter the personal cost to others.
I look forward to no longer having to be around people who think they are their own god and all must bow down before them or pay the cost for not doing so. I look forward to the day when people will actually understand that as you age there is more and more responsibility to those about us and not to their own joys which makes them appear to have never left their teenage years mentally. They do not know or care to know that with age truly does come wisdom and that the source for all goodness, greatness and joy comes from God.
I just wish I could cause these people to understand that they are doing more harm to themselves then to those about them. I want to get them to truly awaken to the fact that if they continue to live with this false image they have placed themselves into is escapism for what is truly real and important.
Too many seek after their own rewards upon this earth. The bigger car, the fancy house and the luxuries that go with it. It is not being able to live in sin and think all is well and good.
It is not a belief that God gives us His rewards here upon this earth in this short time span. For the Bible makes it clear that our rewards are not here and those that have their rewards here will have less in the next and eternal life.
God said there are things we must do. God has said there are things we must not do and if we find people doing certain things we are to avoid them for their actions could poison us to our Lord.
These are the things that I seek, but time to time I forget this as we all do and it still hurts when God says “No.”
But He says it for a reason. For His glory and His goals far outweigh mine, or yours.

Confessions of a screwed up middle aged man: The fact are shown

In yesterday’s post I spelled out the need for Christians to become more involved in politics. I showed that several of the founding fathers of this nation, even though I only quoted three, felt it was mandatory for morality and virtue to be present or government would fall into chaos.
If you have not read the posting yet I strongly suggest you do so for it contains an important comparison between what the Bible asks of those that follow and have accepted Jesus Christ and a political group that has left the Bible
We are in the early stages of something that can go very badly for the short term for Christians in this nation. Will what I said cause many of you to awaken to the facts? I cannot answer that, but Jesus made it perfectly clear in Revelation 3:15-16. You must choose a side. You must be against God or for Him, you must be cold or hot, black or white and you must never, never be lukewarm for it will be worse for the lukewarm than for the cold towards God.
The formers of this nation wanted all of us to be servants of God. They knew many would not be, but I seriously doubted they expected this many to be lukewarm. We are in sad times for humanity, and it must be the Christians that step forward and make it known what is right and wrong within the world. Why? Because too many wonder in the lukewarm and not in the hot and they shall be found wanting.
Our actions, our choices in even the simplest of things decide for us upon where we will stand when the time comes.
It is my deepest wish and desire that more stand with God than not, but as each day passes I see more and more that it will not be this way and this is extremely sorrowing to realize and accept but I must or I will drive myself into despair if I think upon it too much. So many that I call friends that I fear I may never see again except if by chance I look upon them in the pity. I know that if I do see them I will weep not for myself, but for them, for once they are in the pit there is no coming out and it will last billions upon billions of years.
