When God Promises

Every presidential election in recent times has been talked about as one of the most crucial in America’s history. The 2020 election season has added to it, however, anxiety among voters the likes of which I can’t recall.

Not everyone is so concerned, of course. Those I’m referring to who are so concerned are those who truly see the nation as on a pathway of rapid decline in most every aspect of society and culture. From the issues of the debauching of morality like instituting same-sex marriage and same-sex public toilet facilities…to a whacked-out leftist opposition party that seems to have thrown the U.S. Constitution out the window of common sensibility…to the deliberate creation of an economic morass that has built to the point that the American people have no idea that they are in a portentous economic predicament their circumstances plainly indicate. intensive fear is building.

There is genuine worry within the heartland of America that we have a government that is no longer recognizable as founded. And, the even greater worry is that this condition has been deliberately brought about by leftist elected leaders and deep-state elitists entrenched within government whose primary concerns is feathering their own personal and political power nests.

Certainly, looking across America’s landscape of the present hour, it isn’t easy to find a glimmer of hope to offer those with these concerns. The cajoling of voters for their votes by the politicians and their great, swelling promises of the campaign stump suddenly disappear when they win elections. They join in or revert to their old Washington ways once put into or returned to office. It would be foolhardy to expect that this election will see accomplished a different result.

Tremendous pressures exerted upon newly elected members of Congress to join the insider network or else be marginalized and rendered ineffectual has been made blatantly observable over the last number of mid-term elections in particular. Once the candidates have been within the D.C. Beltway for a certain period of time, they melt into the system. They seem to disconnect from their constituency until time to get out and shore up their support at home.

The politicians’ promises, almost without exception, fade into the canyons of lost memories, the destination for which they are intended all along by the Washington power brokers. Yet to so many amongst the citizenry, the government has come to demand god-like reverence. The largess that the power brokers provide from cradle to grave has replaced reliance upon provision by the true God of Heaven in the mainstream of life in America–this swiftly taking our nation in the opposite direction intended by the founding fathers.

With the exception of President Donald Trump and others who are trying to bring about governmental sanity, each succeeding election proves again and again that the politicians’ promises were never intended to be kept. Yet we the people continue to place trust in those who, in many cases, have been in those positions of power for decades. It’s a form of insanity, I think–reprobate thinking brought on by our sinful ways and activity. Again, the definition of insanity is trying the same thing time after time to solve problems even though it fails every time.

This brought to mind for this commentary the distinctly defined difference–the contrast–between those promises given by the politicians and the promises made by our God in Heaven.

The same politicians who make us promises election after election and quickly forget them once they’ve been voted in office tell Israel that, in effect, God’s promise to that nation is not valid. Yet while the politicians prove election after election that it is their own promises that are not valid, the God of Heaven, through the very nation of Israel, which is at the heart of so much worldwide anger and controversy, has proven beyond any doubt that He keeps His promises.

He has said that Israel, once established in the land, will never be uprooted again. He said it would be made a nation again in a single day. He said that Israel will never stop being His people. He has kept every promise. We can know therefore, beyond any doubt that while the politicians of this nation and world almost never keep even one promise, the God of the Universe never will break a promise.

That God has said to His people Israel regarding Jerusalem, “For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.” (Zechariah 2:8)

The Lord has also promised that because the politicians of this world will “divide my land,” He will bring the whole world into the Valley of Jehoshaphat–to Armageddon (Joel 3:2).

That’s why we watch Israel so closely in the observation of the unfolding of history in view of Bible prophecy. Israel is absolute proof of the veracity of God’s Word. He keeps His promises–and Israel is the proof! To apply this to the fear and trepidation that so many Christians are expressing today about the upcoming election and what lies beyond, I urge that we consider our Great, Promise-Keeping God.

He has told us that we will be completely kept out of the time of the soon-to-come era of horror termed the Tribulation–out of His Judgment and Wrath (Revelation 3: 10). He will take the Bride of Christ –the Church– off this condemned planet when all of the troubling signals begin to come to pass (Luke 21: 28).

When God promises, it is as good as accomplished. This promise, I hope you will sense in your spirit as do I, is about to be kept.

    Well said!

    Perhaps we have entered the last hour of these end times. Wickedness is running wild and has been accepted as normal in today’s world. America,
    Canada and Europe are no longer Christian Nations. Obama and Trudeau have sold their soul to satin. Both endorse LGBTTQ, ABORTION, even live birth murder. Both are Globalists and in league with the UN, New World Order OR not coming but here NOW, One World Government, Religion and Financial System. Trump alone has prevented their forward movement by refusing to surrender America’s sovereignty to another authority as long as he is President. Both Obama and Trudeau, I believe, have surrendered their sovereignty over to the UN World Government. This is why Trump is continuously attacked and why Canada’s borders are permently open with mass immigration. This is why the people of England voted for BREXIT to control their border and stop further Muslim immigration.
    The Pope travels the world gathering all religions under the umbrella of the Catholic Church. They all worship their god’s together using their own bibles. Their message to the world is that all faiths will lead to the Father/Jesus, to heaven. True Christians will not be found in this group because this is a lie from Hell. Jesus said,” I am the Way the Truth and the Life, NO ONE comes to the Father except through me.” HE also said, “ Wide is the road that leads to destruction and MANY there are that are on it.
    Narrow is the road that leads to SALVATION and FEW there are that find it.
    Wide verses Few= what? 50/50? 60/40? 70/30? 75/25? 80/20? 85/15?
    My conclusion is that the majority of people will NOT go to heaven.
    Now the Financial System, Have you noticed people love the convenience of just tapping their credit card? We are quickly moving toward a cashless world. The beggars in some European countries carry a debit card machine for those that want to donate. Even some American banks have refused cash as videoed online. What if you lose your TAP credit card, who pays for the losses? The banks of course. To reduce their losses credit cards and debit cards will eventually be withdrawn. Then what? RFID CHIPS, injected beneath your skin will be required in order to buy and sell anything including food. I believe Terry pointed out that everyone will be given an identification number and with the launching of 300 new SATALITIES and 5G technology,
    Everyone on earth can be tracked anywhere in real time. There will be no where to hide. The RFID CHIP must be injected so it can not be lost.
    The bible talks about the “Mark of the Beast” the number of a man, the Antichrist that will be placed on the right hand or forehead during the Great Tribulation. Anyone That accepts this Mark will go to Hell, no exception.
    Israel will be attacked by Turkey, Iran, Russia and Muslim countries not long from NOW. God will allow Israel to win and survive. Next China and eastern countries will follow with 200 MILLION men marching down a dry Euphrates
    River to the Vally of Jehoshaphat, Armageddon. Joel 3:2 Ten nation’s Of The Revived Roman Empire (EUROPE) will also attack Israel at some point. Guess who wins? God and Israel. Which side are you on?

    I have felt a stirring in my spirit for the last six months that something big is about to happen. Hope it is the rapture!

  5. Dee says:

    Thank you both for the truthful message given here and I pray that many will listen and be wise enough to follow in belief the words given from the Bible for Salvation. I pray for Israel and her people daily. May the words you have written help those in need find the God that came down to give His life for our salvation. May we see the need to follow the example that Christ Jesus showed us and follow His lead in how we need to love and treat all others.

  6. Ed Wood says:

    I don’t know if it is true or not, but it seems to make a lot of sense: An insane person doesn’t know that he or she is . . . , well . . . . insane! What I am seeing is that the insanity is becoming universal.

    George Santayana said that those who don’t learn from the past are condemned to repeat it, and it seems that the insanity has also affected people’s memories.

    Here are four major things that have been forgotten from history:

    1) The fall of most of the vast and powerful empires of the past was preceded by a time of moral collapse and the acceptance of sexual deviancy.

    2) In more recent times, every socialist society has proven to be a dismal failure.

    3) No human government has ever been able to stave off the corruption that eventually led to its own demise.

    4) Last, but the most important thing of all, is that we human beings are not God and anytime we attempt to arrogate ourselves to the place that rightly belongs to him produce catastrophic results.

    I’m afraid that, at this present time, the inmates are indeed running the asylum, oblivious to these lessons from the past.

    The question now is how long God will allow it continue.

    Amen brother, I too am not awaiting the next election, but just looking up waiting for my great and God and Savior Jesus Christ, it is so clear that his intervention is right at the door, just look at all the signs, beside the fact, it is the promises our Heavenly Father has made, we will not be here at that great climax of time when the World Leader, Anti-Christ reigns! We will just see and are seeing the climax,the stage being set, I find it exciting to watch and then read the prophecy’s of God showing us with all that we are witnessing in the world that his word is true and infallible. I am so grateful that he has opened my eyes to see, just like he did the blind man. That is an illustration of us all, if Jesus doesn’t open your not gonna see.
    I am so thrilled when I read the scriptures, all those pictures of what our Lord has done for us! Opened our ears, eyes and hearts!! Praise the Lord for he is good, for his mercies endureth forever!!!

    Another timely message !!

  9. Lynne Graham says:

    Such a good article. The last hour of the last days in which we are living is both exciting and so difficult. I think everyday that my spirit is seated with Jesus at the right hand of God the Father. This thought brings both comfort and joy. Thank you for this message.
