Proverbs 16:12-14 It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness: for the throne is established by righteousness. Righteous lips are the delight of kings; and they love him that speaketh right. The wrath of a king is as messengers of death: but a wise man will pacify it.
How far off course, have we come in America? The Bible says it is an abomination for the king, or in the case of Americans, for the president, to commit wickedness. It’s an abomination! In other words, God sees wickedness as sickening, and it should be. Why? Because the throne, or office leadership was established with the concept of righteousness attached to it. Whoever holds this office should look to the one and only true King of all Kings to be their example in every judgment, and every decision that’s made. Jesus Christ, who will one day rule and reign over all the earth, should be their model and example of how to rule well in the high office that they are allowed to hold. Instead, today we debate whether God and religion have any place in politics. Even the Church today gets upset when a preacher stands in the pulpit and says anything about the sinful life of their favorite candidate.
Social unrest, global fighting, and a fragile economy have caused people more and more to dismiss God and true morality for someone, anyone, who will tickle their ears with some hope of peace, and more money in their pocket. Sadly, they have forgotten that God alone brings peace, and He is the one who owns the cattle on a thousand hills, and not any political party.
Even worse are those who say, “Until the perfect man is eligible for office, I will not vote.” When they do so, they allow the lost world, and its sinful ideas to have their way. To wait to vote for the perfect man to hold the office of authority will mean they will have to wait until Jesus comes back. Friend, on that day, there will be no vote. HE IS KING OF KINGS ALREADY!
THE WORD WALKING IN ME:
What can we do today you may ask? The one thing we should have been doing all along. Hold leadership to the highest of true moral standards. Next, and most importantly, pray God will turn their heart toward Him. Finally, pray daily for all in authority over you. Never forget, God is still in control.
