Elections and Providence

I was asked about my thoughts on the election issues.  I have been thinking about it all morning and the providence of God. I am afraid that God is really going to purge the Church. We will have to be either 100% trusting and submitting to Him(and those He places over us!) or have anarchy in our hearts! Fear of man will make us crazy. My country can fall, but my trust in the promises of God and work of Jesus Christ cannot, and the one is not bonded to the other. Hab. 3:16-19 We need to focus on not the falleness of Man, but trusting God. We should exhort and reprove those brothers and sisters that are not thinking Biblically. We need to be exhorting/encouraging one another to BELIEVE God, wait upon God; which is not necessarily the same as a McCain victory! It is running with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.(Heb 12:1-2) It is that peace that surpasses all comprehension, that guards our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Phil 4:7 And do you know what? I realize that as I write this, we need to speak these words and more to others, because as this testimony is upon our lips, we strengthen and encourage one another… Heb 10:24-25. In the Grip of His Grace, Pastor Parker
