It is the day after the national elections 2016. Needless to say this election was one of the strangest of our lifetime. President Elect Donald Trump seized a surprising upset revealing this nation is very weary over the condition of politics and our national and state office holders. What is certain our nation is divided over the issues and both sides are frustrated as only a few times in our history. Make no mistake we have been divided before, such as the 1850s- 1860s. Many issues were at the forefront and the issue of slavery was one that divided our nation. If you would have been alive at that time you would have realized that many actually hated President Abraham Lincoln and viewed him as their enemy, yet history reveals that he was used to help set the nation back on track. Sovereign God was at work as his children were praying for His will. The point for us today is that our Lord is still on the His throne and is working in the affairs of this world.
One day after Election 2016 I am still praying for the cause of Pro Life, Israel, Biblical Marriages, Original Constitutional Interpretation and Conservative Supreme Justices. And I think many who are heading to the highest offices in January have more promise to lead in that way then the others. Yet I still believe that as Christians we must understand that the " world system" is not the friend of Jesus or his kingdom and as Christians our greatest concern should be sharing the gospel and in such that will help a nation more than anything.
I heard Dr. John Macarthur address this two days before the election and it applies as much after as it did before going to the polls. Please listen to this 14 minute lesson and please continue to pray for our Lord to send revival to our land.
