Mercy

MERCY – My final commentary on the U.S. election.

My view of a second term for President Obama comes from several scriptures. We have prayed for mercy for our land through super storm Sandy and the election according to Job 37 (see last week’s post). We know that God is in control either for correction, for His land, or for mercy. I suspect that all three apply here. A Third Great Awakening is destined for America because of the character of God. There has never been a nation that has spread Jesus (the Bread of Life), on the waters (nations) like America has. Therefore Yehovah God will bring one last great revival.

Cast your bread upon the waters, For you will find it after many days. Ecclesiastes 11:1

This morning the sun came up and we sang: “This is the day that the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it!” How appropriate that Jesus sang those very words at His last Passover supper, the night He was betrayed. He knew what He was about to face, yet would have sung the traditional Passover hymn including Psalm 118; and we sing it with Him!

This is the day Yehovah has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24

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 2:21

God is in control.

Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Romans 13:1

Finally, here is a very sober text from a time of God’s judgment on Judah.

A Warning for Rebellious Judah (Does this now apply to America?)

Now go and write down these words. Write them in a book. They will stand until the end of time as a witness that these people are stubborn rebels who refuse to pay attention to Yehovah’s instructions.

They tell the seers, “Stop seeing visions!” They tell the prophets, “Don’t tell us what is right. Tell us nice things. Tell us lies. Forget all this gloom. Get off your narrow path. Stop telling us about your ‘Holy One of Israel.’”

This is the reply of the Holy One of Israel: “Because you despise what I tell you and trust instead in oppression and lies, calamity will come upon you suddenly—like a bulging wall that bursts and falls. In an instant it will collapse and come crashing down. 

This is what the Sovereign Yehovah, the Holy One of Israel, says: “Only in returning to me and resting in me will you be saved. In quietness and confidence is your strength. But you would have none of it.

So Yehovah must wait for you to come to him so he can show you his love and compassion. For Yehovah is a faithful God. Blessed are those who wait for his help. Isaiah 30:8-13,15,18 NLT

I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever. Thomas Jefferson

Mercy, Lord Jesus!

(As is my custom, I have taken the liberty to change the word “LORD” to Yehovah. Every single time you see LORD or GOD in all capital letters in the Old Testament, the actual Hebrew word is Yehovah. This name occurs 6,828 times in the Hebrew text, yet remains untranslated in most Bibles. His name has been obscured for 2,500 years, but is now being revealed. It is TIME to restore the name of Yehovah!) (for deeper study click here.)
