Shalom all Doves,
Jim, I read your article on the class-mate of O. and what he said brought to my mind something that has been lurking there for over a year now.
If we believe that the antichrist is at first a righteous appearring leader, for the most part of 3 1/2 years.........
and then becomes a master of destruction.......
apearing in sheeps clothing, but changing to a wolf....
how does the one we look at as if he fits the bill......come out of the shoot looking like a wolf before he looks like a lamb?
How are we blinded into thinking at anytime, or from any angle that the obomination is the one in disquies ? He has been what he is from the get go! Trying to change a wicked thing into a different wicked thing.
Two rights don't/won't make a wrong thing right! Nor will two wrongs change what is thought to be right.
We can never get to G-d's Will, by just diverting our goal.....to our will. We can only get to G-d's Will by finding the Straight and Narrow Pathway that leads to Righteousness. When we vote, we must vote for G-d's will.
As many times as I have pondered this question over the years...I always come up with this:
G-d's will for mankind was, and always will be......A KINGDOM RULE.....not a choice of leadership rulership. And..... I think that in that perspective...
Democracy is wrong! It is the way of IDOL WORSHIP! and humbly, I think that was the great divider of the first American Families...should the Church, or the People be the Rulers of this Great Nation! Did we miss the mark in the Rev. War?
By this .......I can not in anyway VOTE .....I must trust that in the end.....G-d will be the ONE who will appoint the KINGDOM LEADER!!!! And that will be MESSIAH!!!!
That Is why HE COMMANDS US TO ' BE SILENT' "BE STILL", AND TO KNOW THAT HE IS THE GREAT I AM....THAT I AM, AND ALWAYS WAS, AND WILL BE!
Perhaps......if we would pray for that LEADER......TO BE YHVH'S CHOICE....WE WOULD SEE HIM SOON/SOONER. KING OF KING'S AND LORD OF LORD'S!
