John answered, “A person cannot receive even one thing unless it is given him from heaven. (John 3:27 ESV)
When John’s disciples came to him and asked if he was the Messiah, he responded that he was not and that one could only be what God had given him to be. He was a forerunner to the Messiah, and he was fulfilling a call God had given him. We cannot acquire and become anything that God has not given us. God gave John that anointing. We must ask whether we are trying to be or trying to acquire anything God has not given us. When we seek to acquire anything that God has not given us, we can expect God to respond to us like any good father would to a child. He will remove that which the child is not supposed to have.
David understood this principle. When he was preparing to furnish the temple, he told God in his prayer, “Everything comes from You, and we have given You only what comes from Your hand” (1 Chron. 29:14b).
Which brings me to this election.
If God pulls off a miracle – which He certainly can – it means that another four years of Donald Trump was ordained by Him.
If, on the other hand, GOD CHOOSES to allow Joe Biden to be inaugurated, then THIS was ordained by Him.
Either way, we are to follow God’s plan, not any man’s. This means that the church needs to … no … is REQUIRED, to step up, preach the truth of the Gospel, and get to the harvest.
Today’s church, for the most part, is extremely weak and lukewarm. They’re too interested in political correctness and making “seekers” feel welcome with a feel good message and gender neutral hymns and pronouns – instead of preaching the truth, that murder, including the unborn, is wrong morally as well as biblically, that there are only two genders – male and female, that a male and female living together without benefit of marriage is sin, that stealing and deception – is wrong.
We need to start offending people! Hey, Jesus did it all the time. He pissed off a lot of people – he never sugar coated sin.
So, if Biden wins, or Trump gets a miracle from God, the church has its work cut out for it, because to not correct these abominations in our laws and culture will lead to sure judgment – it’s a matter if it will come soon, or maybe four years from now.
