I recently read that 30 million Christians didn't vote in the last presidential election. I went to the internet and did a search and www.providenceforum.org/yourvotematters says that only 50 percent of Christians register to vote and only 50 percent of them vote. Meaning that only 25 percent of Christians vote.
Why Christians don't vote from my 29 years of experience as a Christian:
God is in charge and appoints our leaders: God allowed me to teach in a church Sunday where the majority refuse to vote because they interpret Romans 13:1-2, "Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation." to mean that God appoints the leaders of our country and that if they vote they are resisting the ordinance of God. I always thought this meant speeding, not paying taxes, etc., but to me this means that God has established our system of government through our founding fathers and the right to vote is our greatest privilege as a citizen of a free country that God ordained and established through our founding fathers and if we don't vote we bring damnation on ourselves.
God has put Christians in charge and we are one in Christ Jesus and are failing to unite and exercise our authority and defeat our only enemy in the whole wide world, satan.
Mark 16:17, And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name (Jesus) shall they cast out devils;” We cast out the devil in Jesus Name, Jesus doesn’t cast out we do in His Name. We co-labor. We work together with God to defeat the enemy. We act in faith on the Word of God and God moves on our faith in His Word. God does not want us to be passive, complacent, but actively resist evil in every way possible. When we vote a Godly platform we are casting our vote to cast out the devil thereby obeying Mark 16:17. WHEN YOU DON'T VOTE THE MOST GODLY PLATFORM YOU ARE GIVING THE devil PLACE BY NOT RESISTING him and his platform. Don’t look at the men look at the platform. Ephesians 4:27, "Neither give place to the devil."
This is all a sign of the end times and Jesus is coming back soon and we will be raptured before things get too rough. Matthew 24:36, But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. Vote until Jesus comes back.
Second Timothy 2:4, No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. Our forefathers got involved with establishing our system of government but stayed away from the everyday foolishness or affairs of this life that we encounter in our daily life and they voted.
We are strangers in this world and don’t need to be involved with the world’s system because we are just passing through-Hebrews 11:13-16, These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. 14For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. 15And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. 16But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
Our founding fathers were strangers and pilgrims in this land and they voted.
First Peter 5:6-9, " Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world." When you humble yourself under God’s mighty hand and vote the Godliest platform you are resisting steadfast in the faith.
James 4:7, "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." Resist by voting.
America is in a spiritual battle and has been since its conception. The battle intensified after WWII when we demonstrated that we had the capability to go overseas and defeat our enemies. And then, the battle that Ephesians 6:10-13 speaks of intensified and the church became impotent when it quit teaching about spiritual warfare. We got into the Korean War, prayer was removed from schools and we became involved in the Vietnam War and then began to systematically execute 1.2 million U.S. citizens a year through the demonic practice of abortion. We then began to replace those citizens with citizens from other countries that didn’t understand our heritage established through Christian values until we elected a man president of the USA whose name rhymes with osama only 7 short years after 911.
We are all one "In Christ Jesus." People that stand for abortion are totally deceived by the enemy. Don't vote because of the color of someone's skin, gender, party affiliation, religious beliefs or lack thereof, but for whomever has the Godliest platform. Vote for who the Holy Spirit will lead you to vote for if we are led by the Spirit of God, the Holy Spirit.
It is imperative that Christians realize they are in a battle of the mind with satan and win that battle and VOTE.
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (WIN THE WRESTLING MATCH AND VOTE.)
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
Second Corinthians 10:3-5, “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;”
GOD, BLESS AMERICA! This solemn prayer should be sung in every church in America in every service and on radio stations until we get back to God.
While the storm clouds gather in D.C.,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free,
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer:
God Bless America.
Land that I love
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America
My home sweet home.
6Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time: 7Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you. First Peter 5:6-7
