God Did Not Vote For Donald Trump

And neither did Jesus…..but we want to think he did. Our fascination with expecting God to be on our side, as if we have the right perspective on everything from the bible to biblical history, is really dangerous. I have mentioned before that there is no Satan as a created being that roams the underworld in search of ways to get us to think bad things, ruin our “walk with the Lord”, we_are_each_our_own_devil___intober_2016_7_by_skeletoninadress-damdc3g or keep us from being fruitful for God. “The Satan”, being a title not a name, is a construct of humanity…to blame something for the things that we willfully do to others but want to. All those “satanic” things done out there were done by people, nature, or the combination of both. The choices we make and the lies we believe can be the satanic. Through that, we are the satanic in the lives of others and in our own life. If this is realized, it puts a whole new weight on what we say, do, and choose every second of the day. We have no one to blame but ourselves (I do understand that early influence plays a huge part on this) for the satanic mechanism that is at work in every aspect of our lives…..from the way we treat our kids to the words spewed by pastors on sunday morning to how we view others around us. We draw the line in the sand and declare anyone not on our side (because we somehow believe God is on our side of the line…always) to be against God or on the side of the devil. All the while, our very action against those people is the Satanic Mechanism at work. We participate in it and think we are standing for God’s principles. However, we have become the accuser and we use the bible to justify it. Jesus came to overcome this religious thinking. To enter into the Kingdom of God is to leave behind this vicious religious thinking….to see a greater way that is seen demonstrated in Jesus. So when we say God divinely interceded for Trump to become President of the United States to defeat the evil Hillary Clinton, we join in on the Satanic Mechanism of drawing the line in the sand and accusing those on the other side of our line. All the while, we don’t see that God has no part of our lines or accusations. And without a  doubt, God has no part in Trumps accusations either.

God’s Revelation In You

When God’s revelations become apparent in your life, I would think they are just for you. They are never to then go and broadcast to the masses as if 187-bill-reflectGod has made you a messenger of “rules to follow” so a curse, from God, would be lifted. That would be the ego getting the upperhand. Take the revelation and apply it to your life….then be an example of the self sacrificing other-centered Love of Jesus. Isn’t that what revelation is anyway? I still contend that God is not nearly concerned about our sin as we think. God is not surprised by any of it. Have peace in that.  However, it seems that God does want us to see how our sin affects others….see the revelation…and then change from what our ego tries to justify. God is Love. When that is realised, go and live that out to the best of your abilities.
