Musing & Rambling: What Now?

I have waited until several days after the Presidential Election before I would make any comments (for what they are worth).

Many have asked my opinion and what we as Christians should do, and what’s going to happen in the future.

First, let me say that as a Believer, I do not look to Washington or a President, no matter who they may be, for as the Bible says in Psalms 121:2, “My help comes from the Lord, which made Heaven and Earth.”  Actually, one should read all eight Verses as it clearly states the Lord as our Helper.

Second, the people have spoken, they voted for the one they want and for what they want.  We elect what we are.  Too many people in America today want the Government to take care of them from the cradle to the grave.

I like what Judge Andrew P. Napolitano wrote a few days ago: 

“What is going on is the present-day proof of the truism observed by Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton, who rarely agreed on anything in public.  When the voters recognize that the public treasury has become a public trough, they will send to Washington not persons who will promote self-reliance and foster an atmosphere of prosperity, but rather those who will give away the most cash and thereby create dependency.”  What a true statement for today.

Third, never forget that the Nation is always a reflection of the Church.  As it has been said, “As the Church goes, so goes the Nation.”  The Nation is in the shape it’s in because the Church has never been in worse spiritual shape than today.

Fourth, no matter who is elected to lead our Nation, we as Christians are to do as the Bible says in I Timothy 2:1-3:

“I exhort therefore that, first of all supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men.  For kings (in our case Presidents) and for all who are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all Godliness and honesty.  For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior.”

While I may not like or approve of this President’s policies, I will still pray for him and intercede for him that somehow the Lord can open the eyes of our leaders and that God will come to our Nation, but if not, I take heart in knowing God is still on the Throne and in the end His Will will be done.

This has been the musings and ramblings of an Independent Christian Voter.

    I fear for this country and the people, but I trust God to keep his children under his wing of protection. I agree that there are far to many people that have an “entitlement” attitude but there are also far too many “seeker friendly” Christians who live with nearly the same attitude. They go through life thinking God is here only to satisfy their each and every want and they’ve forgotten we are here to worship and serve him, spreading his word. There are SO many things wrong with the direction that our Government is leading us and we are standing by just watching. Christians take a STAND before its too late!!

      When using the phrase “entitlement mentality” it should be kept in mind that the workers (wage earners in this nation have worked for the funds managed by the SSA Social Security Administration.
      Many former workers who were taxed for social security are now unjustly being depived of social security disability.

    I watch the church service every Sunday morning and Sunday night. I can’t get out of the house and I couldn’t do anything any better than enjoy church with the people there. I have learned so much that I never heard of before. I pray along with you. I want so bad to receive tongues. I wish I could go there just one time. What a blessing that would be for me. Sometimes I feel like I can’t wait for Sunday to come so I can hear the singing, preaching and the prophecies coming from God. I get so excited. I thank God for you all.
