Neutrality is opposition. Inaction is action.
These matters we must understand especially in these unprecidented times.
In the years since the 2016 election, God has allowed the exposure of corruption beyond imagination to confront our faith and reveal our hearts and minds–not for His sake, but for ours.
With the parable of the persistent widow recorded in Luke 18, Jesus explains how the widow received justice from a godless or a lesser judge, because of her persistence. He then contrasted the judgment from the lesser judge to that of the greater judge, meaning God Himself. The point here is for us to have confidence of the complete and accurate justice we will see from God. Then after sharing this parable, Jesus wondered aloud in front of His disciples, “Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth?”
If Jesus were to return today, what do you think He’d find? We may be able to characterize the Church at Large, but I believe God is asking us to examine our own hearts. I am saddened to learn many of my legitimate brothers and sisters have attempted to take the position of being neutral–to avoid the controversy, corruption and evil in our midst. But just as God spoke to the Church of Laodicea in Revelation chapter three, “I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.”
Elsewhere in Scripture we read Jesus say, “Whoever is not for us is against us.” (Matt. 12:30, Luke 9:50, Mark 9:40). This statement also reveals whoever is not for us, is against us. This is a warning I believe God is highlighting for us today.
In the fall of 2019, I was seeking God for insight as to what we should expect in 2020. I clearly heard God state, “Justice.” So when events beginning with COVID-19 began to be known, and all that came with it the entire year, including the 2020 presidential election, I have not been moved. I realize, in order for God to administer justice, He must first expose injustice. The corruption is so great, far more than we’ve realized, that it was essential God show us. Were He to try to tell us, even if we were confident it was God speaking, we’d have a tough time accepting it. No, the depth of corrupt injustice is so deep, God needed to reveal it precisely as He has all year long.
While the past few years, and especially 2020, have been violently revealing corruption, I have been able to maintain a confident faith, because I’m certain about God, His will, His character, His intent, and His authoritative power. I’m confident because I have come through a great number of deep, personal trials without allowing fear, or dread to drown out my knowledge of God, therefore fortifying my faith. Not that I have done this on my own; rather I have learned what it is to abide in Jesus no matter what the circumstances. The best way we learn anything is through experience. People can tell us an important lesson, but the lessons we never have to learn again come through personal experience.
I’ve said before, “Every trial we’ve endured today, is intended by God to prepare and strengthen us for the trials ahead.” This perspective about God has helped me persevere in the faith until I come through the trial or test of my faith. God does not test us to shame us, but to show us what we lack so we can be strengthened and partner with Him and His ways. Successfully abiding in Christ means we have had our faith developed to such an extent that fear and dread do not overwhelm us. Not that we won’t experience a measure of fear and dread, but we will not be moved from our confident faith in God.
With the example of the persistent widow, we must learn the importance of spiritual tenacity and deliberate action. The widow first took her case before God in prayer. Then she took her case to the judge to contend in the faith for her prayers to be realized. This is the example we need today. It takes courage and persistence. I believe God puts us in places where we need to apply courage and persistence as a means for us to demonstrate our faith. When we demonstrate our faith in the natural, God adds His super and we’ll experience super natural results.
With the presidential election of 2020 and all that has occurred this year, the last thing we should do is to grow weary in well doing. Instead, we must seek God to add to our courage daily and to reveal His strategies for our success. America is a nation in covenant with God, but God will never act contrary to the will of His people. If we want to see our nation restored to righteousness–if we want to see our government’s integrity restored–if we want to see the godly influence of America exttend to other nations in the world (whose people have been praying for us to succeed knowing it will impact them) then we must act on our faith.
This is NOT about preference for any candidate, but about assuring fair and accurate elections now and in the future. Every American should want this. Those who don’t are clearly on the wrong side of truth and God.
Many Christians have wrongly concluded their vote doesn’t matter. In this critical election where corruption is being exposed, I woudn’t want to be one of those Christians who didn’t vote and have to answer to God. If you are among those who didn’t vote, please seek the Lord now and confess your lack of stewardship of your American citizenship, and seek to do what you can to make things right. There are still many things we can do to partner with God to expose corrution, bring about justice, and restore America’s election integrity and governmental process. I ask you to consider doing any of the following without delay:
- If you live in any of the contested states, WI, PA, GA, AZ, MI, contact your legislatures and tell them you expect them to produce fair and honest election consistent with the laws and constitution.
- Those living in all other states, contact the legislatures of the 5 contested states to say you are a citizen if the United States and you expect them to produce fair and honest election results consistent with the laws and constitution as their state election impacts the national presidential election.
- If you live in states that used the Dominion tally system, contact your legislatures and tell them you do not trust the published election results and demand an audit of the results.
- If you can financially contribute, understand that attorney’s Sidney Powell and L. Lin Wood and the American Center for Law and Justice can use donations to help them in their litigation.
I realize many Christians are living in fear, in these unprecidented times of 2020, because they have been listening to wrong voices, and abiding with a false narrative. Prayer consistent with God’s will is only part of what we’re called to do. Practical deeds in support of our prayers is the other part. We are not helpless, if we pray and practically partner with God to see His will done on earth as it is in heaven.
It is my prayer that this blog post will quicken and empower my brothers and sisters in Christ so we take a visible stand—put our feet to our prayers for God’s righteousness to be visible and change the culture of the world.
