Our Task Is Still The Same.

The judgment of God against this nation will not be turned by a more conservative President, but by the repentance of its people. The church’s task for the next 4 yrs is the same as the last 2000 yrs – Preach the Gospel to every creature and live it out before them. – Paul Washer

History is will be made this week. Whether you are an American or not, this decision, deciding who will be the next president of the United States, will probably effect you in some way. Most Americans have been panicking over this for the last year or so, and the stress seems to be getting worse and worse as the days go by. Most of us will admit that we are not entirely fond of our two choices and would much rather start all over with new candidates to choose from. While I support the Republican nominee, he was not my pick or my favorite candidate, and I have often found myself wishing that we could have a better, more experienced Christian man running for office. But alas, Donald Trump was the nominee. On the other side, we have Hillary Clinton, a woman that I can not, and will not, ever endorse. I could turn this into a completely political post, but I won’t. Because this world has focused far too much on politics in the last few months, and I think it would do us Christians good to remember something very important.

No matter who becomes the next President, we are still serving the same God, and our task has not changed.

God is not going to send an incredible revival simply because Donald Trump wins the election. I see a lot of Christians putting all of their hope in Donald Trump, and I want to remind us all that Donald Trump is not our Savior. Now, let me be clear; I think that whoever chooses not to vote in this election is making a very irresponsible decision. If Hillary Clinton does get into office, she will change everything, and not for the better. She stands for everything that the Bible is against. Her stance on abortion alone should be enough for us to stand up and vote against her. It should be enough to make us want to fight. We have the opportunity to fight against a woman who has no respect for God at all whatsoever, and although I do not put my hope in Donald Trump, I do believe that he is a far better choice than Hillary Clinton. If you want to take that as an endorsement, that is fine. Regardless of what you think about things he has said-and yes, he has done wrong-I want to remind you of the danger that Hillary Clinton could create. She will make abortion nothing more than a casual thing that requires no thought. She will change the Supreme Court and she will put our religious freedom in serious jeopardy. Ask yourself now, do you want Hillary Clinton to run this country? Your answer should be no. Now, go do your job and vote against her. Christians have been silent for far too long, and it is time to say that enough is enough. It is time to for us to see what the liberal influence has done to our country and stand strong against it.

So, God is not going to send a revival because of the Republican nominee. The President has never been responsible for a worldwide revival. Donald Trump claims to be a Christian, and while I do doubt his salvation for various reasons, I pray that he is truly born again. That is all we can do-pray over it. But I want to remind you all that creating a revival is not Donald Trump’s job. His job is to make America a better and safer place. Creating revival is our job. That job belongs to the church of Christ. If Trump is saved, he is a part of that, and he has a part in that job. I only hope that he does his part.

If we want to see this country go back to God, we have to stand up as Christians and fulfill the task that God has given us. We have to be bold and strong and fight against the ungodly attacks that America has been under for years. We have to stand up and cry against abortion, sexual immorality, and so on. We have to fight for our Supreme Court so it does not turn into a horrible liberal creation. We have to fight for the White House.

If you have not voted, I want to beg you; go vote. We are up against two candidates, and neither of them are perfect. But one of them believes in partial birth abortion. The murder of babies in the womb. One of them is going to send this country to a place not unlike Sodom and Gomorrah. This is a definite thing. Not an if, not a maybe.

So vote. I’m going to be blunt and say this. Vote against Hillary Clinton.

But remember, no matter who wins, we still have a task. It is our job to create a revival. It is our job to stand up for God and share the Gospel. It is our job to be set apart, to be salt and light. This country is not going to experience a sudden revival if Donald Trump takes the White House. The only way we are going to see a God-sent revival is if His people-all of us-get serious about where this world is heading. If we get on our knees and pray, and beg of Him to turn things around. If we open our eyes and see how terrible things are now. We are not going in the right direction, and before long, it will be too late for us to turn around. Let God use you. Do not be like this world. Go do something to change it.

What if God created another 7,000 in America? Would you be a part of the 7,000 like in Israel? God always leaves a remnant, and it is time that we determine to be in it. It is not too late for America, and no matter who wins the election, our task is the same. Be a part of the holy remnant of God and seek after a revival that will turn this country around.

1 Kings 19:18

“Yet I will leave 7,000 in Israel, all the knees that have not bowed to Baal and every mouth that has not kissed him.”

    Ultimately, it is God who establishes rulers and removes them. We must all vote our conscience, and vote as unto the Lord, but remember that our citizenship is in heaven.

      Absolutely! God is our King, no matter who is President. His laws and His Kingdom comes before any country or President!

      Amen! That’s what I’ve been saying! It’s been an amazing journey lately of stepping out of America as my country. America is it’s own country with it’s own politics and my citizenship is in heaven. My passport may read USA, but that doesn’t mean my country is the US.

    Kalinann,
    This is fantastic. God’s Kingdom goes forward regardless who sits as president of this nation or any others. We have a responsibility to vote and pray, but the greater responsibility we have is to preach the Gospel and live it out before an unbelieving world!

    That’s a great story with Elijah. Definitely relevant for our time. The other account that comes to mind is Jeremiah’s day. The nation of Judah was very religious, thought they were a godly nation, but their hearts were far from God.

      Thanks so much, Scott! I think one of the saddest things that I have seen in the last few weeks is how there are a lot of Christians on fire, telling people to get out and vote (which is a good thing, of course!) but they have no fire for the Gospel! It says a lot about our priorities, I think, and our faith in God.

    I hope that nothing changes too much with this election. I am happy that we know who our true king is and that nothing will change in that aspect!

    Our hearts on the matter were definitely on the same place. I feel relief in that Hillary is not president, but the time for the church to get back to the Bible and stop goofing around is short. Trump may be the last conservative president in America if we don’t raise up a generation with Biblical discernment. And God knows that public schools and institutions are indoctrinating the majority of children. I’m praying that out of the next generation of millennials we can see revival and that there is indeed a remnant that won’t bow their knees to these heathens.
