It’s almost over; and then it will begin

06 Nov

There will be some or perhaps much turmoil, whatever the outcome of the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

But things will be clarified, and resolved, and revealed.

Things will change; because they must.

Whatever else happens, that will surely be good, ultimately.

Put not your trust in princes, as Scripture says.

    I feel like we’re on the cusp of something but not quite sure what.

    And then maybe this will all end with a whimper and business will go on as usual. Pop culture vapidness and Caitlyn will once again dominate the “news.”

      You can feel the tension.

      Hopefully it won’t return to that…

    Amen, brother. This. THIS.

    I went to church this morning with a vague sense of dread that the Quadrennial Political Theater this Tuesday would be replacing the Word of God as the topic of discussion. I was partly justified by this fear when our pastor’s SiL, who leads the pre-service Bible fellowship, delivered what for any evangelical church is the all-but-obligatory “do your duty and vote” speech (my eyes still ache from rolling them into the back of my head).

    Fortunately, though, he got back on track with a discussion of Psalm 33, a very nice and very appropriate contrast to all the handwringing over which temporal demon prince (or princess, more accurately speaking), will rule this fetid, corrupt, decaying empire that too many deluded Christians view as “God’s Country.” To me, it demonstrates a glaring lack of faith in Him Who Rules All Things to devote such worry and concern over a mere ephemeral, temporal ruler whose kingdom is dust in the wind. Our kingdom is in heaven, not on earth!

    Also, someone please open the Scriptures to the NT and point to the book(s) and verse(s) describing Jesus and the Apostles fixation over Caesar’s rule over them.

      Thanks. It is indeed important for us to remember that God our Father is sovereign, and ultimately in control, and we can trust in Him; indeed, we can only trust in Him. That was a theme in the preaching at my church today, and I was glad to hear it.

        I also can’t help but feel both compassion and sadness over the fact that so much of the rest of the world is as preoccupied with this election as we here in the U.S. are (well, MOST of us; I’m a committed non-voter who despises all temporal politics). That speaks VOLUMES about the toxicity of this crumbling empire and its evil reach.

        I suppose if there is a silver lining to this debacle, it is that regardless of the outcome, the resulting turmoil might just hasten the Empire’s demise.

        That’s my hope, too. 🙂

        I want to see the United States of America, the country, do well; I want to see an end to the American Empire.
