Let's bring politics into our scripture
« on: November 10, 2020, 07:41:17 am »
With no shortage of discussion about politics right now, I thought it might be a good idea to bring politics into scripture...II Chronicles 7:14 14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.



Are we as a people humbled yet or are we still so determined that we can "save" this country that we have not yet throne ourselves at the foot of Christ?

The sad thing is both sides believe they are right and they are the way to saving a country and a people.  People are saved by belief and their salvation not by Trump, not by Biden, or red or blue.  The country can not be "saved" or healed until the people themselves are. 

This is going to be a long long time in coming as the hatred and divisiveness towards each other has replaced Jesus and God in so many people's life.

Thank you for posting that scripture.  We all need a starting point for the journey back.
Say each prayer as if it is your very last conversation with God and live each day as your last day to glorify God by your actions and words.

Ps. 146:3 Do not trust a prince or upon a son of man, for there is no salvation in his hand.
Eph. 6:12 Because your fight has not been with flesh and blood, but with Principalities and The Rulers and The Powers of this dark world and with wicked spirits which are under Heaven.
1Tim. 4:1 Now the Spirit expressly states that in later times some will abandon the faith to follow deceitful spirits and the teachings of demons, 2 influenced by the hypocrisy of liars, whose consciences are seared with a hot iron.
2Tim. 3:1But understand this: In the last days terrible times will come. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, without love of good, 4 traitorous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5having a form of godliness but denying its power. Turn away from such as these!

I've seen a few people talking about how we need to pray for the country and the leader but I haven't seen anyone talk about our need to humble ourselves.  It begins with humility before the true King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  Personally, I have been praying for revival (true revival) from all of the unrest we are seeing in this country.
