IDOK DEVOTION FOR WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 27, 2008
If you will please bear with me as I work through this Presidential election. I am hoping to get off this campaign soap box soon and get back to just the Word and praying but not today. And as I ‘preached’ yesterday, I am by Father’s Grace moment by moment choosing to learn to fret not. I said to my beloved tonight that should it be that there are not enough godly people and decent, morally sound people left in America to keep Barack Hussein Obama from being elected President, wouldn’t it be GREAT if when the polls close on that November Tuesday that the Trumpet would sound and the Bride of Christ be raptured out of this place? Read with me His Promise to us.
1 Thessalonians 4:
16 For the Lord Himself (oh I love reading those words: THE LORD HIMSELF) will (not maybe, not hope so but WILL) descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.
Just think about that! Can you imagine it? Do you from time to time use your holy imagination and let that scene play on the screen of your mind? I hope you do!! It’s a glorious PROMISE to us and I am counting on it. I am counting on that day when He, HIMSELF, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, will come to the atmospheric heavens, that blue sky we look at every day and from among those beautiful white, fluffy clouds He will call us UP and we shall hear Him and we will RISE to meet Him. Yes, these are words of comfort to me. Yet, I do not know when Jesus is coming again. I am thoroughly convinced it will not be has long as it has been. And if this November election goes to those who have refused to Vote the Bible, Jesus may still delay His Coming and if He tarries longer we can be sure that He will take care of us even in an America that is even more unholy then than it is today. BUT for today I am NOT giving up that we Christians and decent, morally sound people can still defeat Barack Hussein Obama IF we will PRAY and when the Holy Spirit says SPEAK to do so in HIS BOLDNESS.
Psalm 140: 12 I know that the LORD will maintain
The cause of the afflicted,
And justice for the poor.
13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks to Your name;
The upright shall dwell in Your presence.
Lord, thank You that You are coming again for us. And thank You that until You do gather us to Yourself that we are safe and secure in You; that You guide us, protect us, and provide for us. That not one need we have will You allow to go unmet. Thank You. Thank You that You will not allow one plot of the evil one to eternally harm us and You will not allow one disease or one illness we suffer to be without Your Glory resting upon us. Thank You that every happening in our lives will be shaped by You for our own good. Thank You for the protection and safety You have given our IDOK Troops and Abba, I am asking You to continue to protect each one of them. I am asking You Holy Spirit to speak to them to encourage them to fall more and more in love with You Lord Jesus. And to hedge them about and keep them safe from all harm and to bring them home safely. And I pray for families as they wait that You will encourage them and that they will rely upon You for strength and peace. I pray for the Peace of Israel and for strength and victory over all Her enemies. I ask You to encourage, give strength and direction to each and every IDOK and Father, whatever each one needs today I am counting on You to supply. And now Father, I ask You once again because of the gravity of the situation that You empower and move people to vote against Barack Hussein Obama. I pray You will have mercy and not allow us to be governed by this man. And Father, I pray for John and Cindy McCain; Lord, I’d like to see him conduct an honest and honorable campaign. And Father, thank You for reminding me, my main prayer for Obama is that he and Michelle repent and embrace Your Word as THE TRUTH to live by. Abba, in fact that is my prayer for all of us that we repent of all sin and live according to Your Word. And Father, I ask You to balance me for Your Glory and the good of my brothers and sisters and the lost who have not said yes to You in salvation. amen and amen. Family from Olive Baptist. Tory.
