The Election has been decided!!!

Today is election day, and while Americans bustle around trying to secure our next elected president, I want to remind us that God’s election has already been decided! He has called us the very elect in Christ. In 2 Pet 1:5-10 is says,

“5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins. 10 Therefore, my brothers and sisters,[ make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble,”

Even after the president is elected into office, the election is not “confirmed” until he is sworn in at the inaugural service. Likewise, our election is not confirmed until we step up to the podium, take a vow to live for Christ and then carry it out.

Don’t forget today and everyday that you have already been counted worthy to be elected – SO LIVE LIKE IT!!!

    Today as I started my day a man ask me what I was doing today at my home office I explain being Employer & Employee , then he responded I’m going out to vote for our black president !!! and I shared which is my stance that Your black president was selected before he was elected obama is just the face on the cereal box he doesn’t run this country and furthermore King Saul tried to kill the next president but that experience made a better King out of David.
    We Sing GOD is sovereign and all mighty however still go out and vote, We say GOD will supply our need and play the lotto. this America is the backsliding daughter of England who played the harlot with these different religion. Let’s be honest she was never GOD’s one and only she sold herself out to the Mason’s and illuminati while saying in GOD we trust along time ago. Only thing I’m doing is making sure my garments are clean…because the scriptures say at Apostle Peter’s Epistle that the righteous scarcely will make it….GOD Almighty in zion thats enough to make you turn up a couple plates and get low.
    Keep teaching and sharing because the 5 fold ministry is being attacked in this hour and we may have 10,000 face book friends and not even in the LAMB’s BOOK.
    We cannot conform to the image of this world and come into the Kingdom with worldly analyzation.The Church is elect in Christ we need to appreciate those rights and vote in the spirit cry out.
    Forgive me I didnt mean to type a thesis Sis.

      Joshua, My brother, all authority is put in place by The Most High. No matter how much of voice we think we have. or don’t have, governing powers have always been and always will be decided by YHWH Himself and not the people.

      Romans 13
      Amplified Bible (AMP)
      13 Let every person be loyally subject to the governing (civil) authorities. For there is no authority except from God [by His permission, His sanction], and those that exist do so by God’s appointment.
      2 Therefore he who resists and sets himself up against the authorities resists what God has appointed and arranged [in divine order]. And those who resist will bring down judgment upon themselves [receiving the penalty due them].
      3 For civil authorities are not a terror to [people of] good conduct, but to [those of] bad behavior. Would you have no dread of him who is in authority? Then do what is right and you will receive his approval and commendation.
      4 For he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, [you should dread him and] be afraid, for he does not bear and wear the sword for nothing. He is God’s servant to execute His wrath (punishment, vengeance) on the wrongdoer.
      5 Therefore one must be subject, not only to avoid God’s wrath and escape punishment, but also as a matter of principle and for the sake of conscience.
      6 For this same reason you pay taxes, for [the civil authorities] are official servants under God, devoting themselves to attending to this very service.
      7 Render to all men their dues. [Pay] taxes to whom taxes are due, revenue to whom revenue is due, respect to whom respect is due, and honor to whom honor is due.
