The Coming Election
By Bobby Conner
Multitudes In The Valley Of Decision
Scripture informs us that multitudes are in the valley of decision concerning the coming elections; we can’t afford to allow this to happen! This is not a time to be disengaged or disillusioned. As followers of Christ we hold the destiny of our nation in our hands. Scripture states we have the power to bind and to loose what occurs on this earth.
Truly I tell you, whatever you forbid and declare to be improper and unlawful on earth must be what is already forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit and declare proper and lawful on earth must be what is already permitted in heaven.
Matthew 18:18 (AMPC)
We should pray that every hidden work of darkness would be exposed.
Take no part in and have no fellowship with the fruitless deeds and enterprises of darkness, but instead [let your lives be so in contrast as to] expose and reprove and convict them.
For it is a shame even to speak of or mention the things that [such people] practice in secret.
But when anything is exposed and reproved by the light, it is made visible and clear; and where everything is visible and clear there is light.
Therefore He says, Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall shine (make day dawn) upon you and give you light.
Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people),
Making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity], because the days are evil.
Therefore do not be vague and thoughtless and foolish, but understanding and firmly grasping what the will of the Lord is.
And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery; but ever be filled and stimulated with the [Holy] Spirit.
Speak out to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, offering praise with voices [and instruments] and making melody with all your heart to the Lord,
At all times and for everything giving thanks in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father.
Ephesians 5:11-20 (AMPC)
Awake the Warriors Arouse the Nation
Look at this passage, it is true in our day - Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
Proclaim this among the nations: Prepare war! Stir up the mighty men! Let all the men of war draw near, let them come up.
Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears; let the weak say, I am strong [a warrior]!
Hasten and come, all you nations round about, and assemble yourselves; there You, O Lord, will bring down Your mighty ones (Your warriors).
Let the nations bestir themselves and come up to the Valley of Jehoshaphat, for there will I sit to judge all the nations round about.
Put in the sickle, for the [vintage] harvest is ripe; come, get down and tread the grapes, for the winepress is full; the vats overflow, for the wickedness [of the peoples] is great.
Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
Joel 3:9-14 (AMPC)
How Long Will You Linger, Waiver and Wait?
It is truly a sad situation when the people of God will not commit themselves to take a bold stand. Notice the choice they were considering God or the false god Baal, yet the people would not take a stand.
How could they have been so dull as to not commit themselves to the God that brought them out of bondage and provided for them protection and provision? Yet they did not answer a single word.
I warn you we cannot be neutral! We are either helping bring in light and God or we are being used to harbor darkness and death. Just as the people in Elijah’s day, we have a choice to make.
Elijah came near to all the people and said, How long will you halt and limp between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him! But if Baal, then follow him. And the people did not answer him a word.
1 Kings 18:21 (AMPC)
We don’t have the luxury of lingering we must make up our minds to take a bold stand for Christ and His kingdom and our nation.
Each one of us must pray and seek God and vote for the person who stands for Godly principles not political correctness. Vote for the person who values the truth and is trustworthy. We should pray that every hidden work of darkness would be exposed. And every lie brought before the light of truth.
“Let the lying lips be silenced, which speak insolently against the [consistently] righteous with pride and contempt.”
Psalms 31:18 (AMPC)
“For the sin of their mouths and the words of their lips, let them even be trapped and taken in their pride, and for the cursing and lying which they utter.”
Psalms 59:12 (AMPC)
WE ARE FORGING OUR CHILDREN’S WORLD
Please grasp the seriousness of these days. Our children and their children will live in the world we create for them now.
The heaven of heavens is for God,
but HE put us in charge of the earth.
Psalms 115:16 (MSG)
I agree completely with this statement:
“It is impossible to govern rightly without God and the Bible!”
It is a huge understatement to say this is a pivotal moment for our nation. In many aspects our entire future as we know it, hangs in the balance on whether or not we take a strong stand for righteousness. I entreat you to be much in prayer concerning the upcoming Presidential election.
Scripture promises that if we the people of God, will humble ourselves and truly get right with God, He will hear our hearts cry and respond to our needs. And heal our land.
If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14 (AMPC)
Pray seeking God for guidance and clear direction as you vote.
We must be concerned more about biblical principles not political correctness. Scripture informs us that when a wicked person rules the nation the people sigh and grown. But when the upright rule people rejoice.
“When the [uncompromisingly] righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when the wicked person rules, the people groan and sigh.”
Proverbs 29:2 (AMPC)
The Message Bible states it this way:
When good people run things, everyone is glad, but when the ruler is bad, everyone groans. Proverbs 29:2 (MSG)
Abraham Lincoln stated:
“The philosophy of the classroom in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.”
I would add to this statement, as the secular media goes so goes our modern day government. This must be challenged and changed by Christians.
