My last (guest) post matched the previous highs of visits to this blog commentary site. Such interest deserves this follow-up. Again, I thank Melinda Fuschetto for her article. I have had good comments both pro and con to the analogy, by phone, email and two good ones on the article comment section. What is your opinion? Please comment at the end of this post.
Now the game is history, won by the Giants. The broad picture of the teams and colors and previous game context made an intriguing meditation. If her vision was about the game, the “wrong” team won. However, if the real purpose was to wake up people to the major challenge of this election; then it was quite profound.
One friend emailed a link to the many reports quoting the wife of the losing quarterback in a shameful and profane rant against other NE Patriot team members. The lesson of her outburst is that true American Patriots during this election need to stand in righteousness. The tiny issue of the game is dwarfed by the sober reality of the choice that will soon be made by this nation.
Many voices are saying that this election is the most important in our lifetime. We better get right with God. Believers actually will decide the outcome in two ways.
First, we must once again repent before God (as we did in the late ’70s): If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
Notice both the call and the promise are for God’s people to act, to do something!
The end of the Carter Presidency nearly ruined our nation, but for the mercy of God. This year we are facing an even more desperate national condition. We are staring over a precipice that could be the end of the Untied States of America. Socialist, Marxist, Communist and even worse, Islamist forces are clamoring at the gates. Some have already embedded in the highest positions of power in government, media and academia. PRAY! REPENT! and then STAND for righteousness.
Second, God’s people must vote. If we all listen for God’s voice by the Holy Spirit, and then obey His leading in the voting booth; His choices will be elected all up and down the line. When a king rules a nation, that entire nation is judged by the king’s decisions, as in ancient Israel. However, we are not in a monarchy, but a republic. Our decisions combined determine our national destiny.
Finally, of course, the outcome is in Yehovah God’s Hand. We are fast-moving toward the greatest monarchy of Jesus, Son of God, Yeshua ben Yehovah!
The prophet Daniel got it right:
Daniel answered and said: “Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, For wisdom and might are His. And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise And knowledge to those who have understanding.” Daniel 2:20-21
May God have mercy on our land. What do you think?
