Humility and Politics
I am America KRISTA BRANCH MUSIC VIDEO
If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land (2 Chronicles 7:14).
If ever there was a time when we need God to heal our land and we need to seek Him for this nation, it is right now. I am not an alarmist or given to extremes. I believe in being a balanced non-compromising, humble, bold follower of Jesus Christ and His Gospel (Good News). I do believe in facing the positives, the negatives and staying informed. I do believe in being a realist and at the same time believing nothing is impossible for God knowing if we allow Jesus to, He can invade our space with His miracle working power. By hooking up to the negative and the positive we get POWER to be His witness which will turn our lights on to shine in the darkness. I believe the upcoming USA election could spell disaster or a turn around the USA, depending if the followers of Jesus Christ rise up and do their part.
A false humility and timidness has crept into the Church, which tells us to stay uninvolved and just focus on the spiritual while the ungodly do their part to conquer education, politics, media, etc with unrighteousness. I will tell you where that false humility and apathy comes from. Hell! If your source of information is the liberal media you will sit back and think everything will be just fine. Speaking of the last days Paul said in 2 Timothy 4:3-4 For the time will come (it is here!!!) when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires (lusts), because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers (including politicians and the media) ; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. As we head into the last days 2 Thessalonians 2:9-11 says The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie.
There is a mind-set which I address in my new book HUMILITY THE HIDDEN KEY TO WALKING IN SIGNS AND WONDERS that is very destructive and you can see it’s influence today. It is a mind-set that says “Christianity and politics don’t mix.” While many Christian leaders and believers have taken on this mind-set, the enemy with the help of the media has been at work slowly eroding this nation that was founded with dependence on God, humility and hard work. If we understood this then we would know God wants us to be balanced spiritually, mentally, physically and financially.
Here is a quote from my new book “Governments need to be impacted for and by Christ or nations will fall. But we cannot impact governments with a poverty mind-set that listens to the advice of the ungodly. The ungodly tell us, “There is a separation of church and state, so Christians should not be involved in politics.” Many Christians, especially ministers, buy into that lie. There is no separation of church and state in the constitution of the United States or with God. When we minister from our pulpits, saying that we should just keep everything spiritual, we keep the Body of Christ from impacting government and legislation. This is a poverty mind-set at work. That mind-set keeps the Church from impacting society with the various giftings that God has put in the Church.”
Also speaking of the last days Isaiah 2:11 says The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, The haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, And the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. Pride will eventually bring one low. That goes for politicians, the unsaved, believers and ministers, alike. The problems we face in our nation are not so much a Republican, Democrat or ec0nomic problem but an heart problem. The things we see on the surface, in our nation are only a reflection of what is buried deep inside our hearts.
We can not legislate morality. It is a heart issue! It is time to humble ourselves, seek God for our nation, get involved in intercession for this land, stay informed and vote for candidates who truly embrace righteousness, integrity, humility and honor. Don’t just go by their empty words (lies) but by the life they live. You can make a difference in your country; stay informed, check your source of political information, get active politically with Christ-like humility and boldness. Pray and vote! Don’t lose heart! I’m believing the Gospel of Jesus Christ and humility will turn this nation back to it’s roots, a God fearing nation!
