Election Outcome and Knowing God Reigns
There is a verse in Psalms that comes to my mind today, it is Psalm 47:8 which says, “God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.”
If you look up Psalm 47:8 in the ESV it uses the word “nations” instead of “heathens” but in the Psalmist’s day there was no difference. The nation of Israel was a witness to the heathen nations around them.
Today, our American media has stirred the pot of strife by “declaring” Joe Biden the winner of the Presidential elections. The media has no legal part of declaring a winner and Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner by any state, but the gamble is to influence the minority of anti-Trump people to think that if or when Trump is established as the winner in this election, they will react as if Trump has stolen the election.
Let me clarify something, Biden may very well be certified as the winner, but the truth is this election is not yet over, though the media is desperate to make us think it is over.
The suspected fraud in swing states seems blatant, especially when ballots that are only marked for Joe Biden are mysteriously found overnight. The Supreme Court has issued two directives to the Democrat operatives in Philadelphia to separate late received ballets and allow poll observers into their overnight secret counting. They have ignored the dictates of the Supreme Court.
The lawlessness of leftist is no longer blushing in our society but boldly acting as if they have no conscience or guilt. 1 John 3:4 reminds us that “sin is lawlessness” (ESV) and we may be watching our nation implode, but not without the hand of God reigning over the outcome.
The promise of Psalm 47:8 is that our Lord knows the difference between the lawless wicked and the saints who strive for righteousness. The Lord is reigning over the outcome that will best hasten the end of sin.
We may be looking at two possible scenarios to these elections and both may promise strife and escalated sorrows.
A progressive White House for these next few years likely means governance by executive order, higher taxes, troops in foreign wars, higher unemployment, defunding of police, never ending court battles for simple freedoms like religious liberty, and ultimate cover-up of the lawlessness in our seat of government.
A conservative White House for these next few years likely means a continuation of the media fighting for its political influence and avoiding truth, more lawless rioting protests, and an increase of violence among communities once thought safe.
Either scenario means the Lord’s return must be soon. Either outcome of this election will mean that God reigns. When we know the outcome, we will certainly talk more about this promise and the elections impact on our future.
It took 34 days before the Bush – Gore election was finalized so I am guessing that when we all get back together again at CrossHope Chapel we may or may not be any closer to knowing which scenario we’ll be dealing with for the next four years.
In the meantime, I am praying that our reigning Lord sees fit to return conservative values to our government and cause a revival of primitive godliness to sweep this land.
