I have to do what I do. They (clients) don't know and frankly, I'm in a place where it doesn't matter.
So, I'm taking care of tree orders. Talking to suppliers and customers.
My brain and emotion traveled with me. I'm still concerned about election. I did receive a comment from someone who chastised me for "at a time like this to be concerned about the election". After reading it carefully I chose not to publish the comment. The tone was not in line with my posting policy.
I'm concerned, I'm not politicking when I say to those who name the name of Jesus as Savior and they without regard to consequence vote without what, in my appraisal, is spiritual wisdom.
Now, in fairness, I believe that Christian can vote for Obama. I believe to do so requires rebellion, open or otherwise. I am confident that God will deal with them as he does will all error. He's a good God. Merciful and Just.
If I am picked up for a DUI this afternoon I will pay a fine, perhaps go to jail, insurance will go up and my life will change for the worse.
God will forgive me for being drunk and driving. He's a good God. I will still have to suffer the consequence of my rebellion. Justice will prevail, worldly justice, but justice none the less.
Deliverance is real; But, it's His mercy. It's not a demand we have the right to make . It's mercy.
So, if you name the name of Jesus as Savior and you believe that you must vote for Obama, God will deal with you later, but you may well suffer the consequence of your rebellion. Justice.
He may not deliver you from that consequence. In my life he allows consequence of my rebellion to train and correct me. It's only mercy when he doesn't make me go thru it.
“My child,[e] don’t make light of the Lord’s discipline,
and don’t give up when he corrects you.
6 For the Lord disciplines those he loves,
and he punishes each one he accepts as his child.”[f]
7 As you endure this divine discipline, remember that God is treating you as his own children. Who ever heard of a child who is never disciplined by its father? 8 If God doesn’t discipline you as he does all of his children, it means that you are illegitimate and are not really his children at all. 9 Since we respected our earthly fathers who disciplined us, shouldn’t we submit even more to the discipline of the Father of our spirits, and live forever?[g]
10 For our earthly fathers disciplined us for a few years, doing the best they knew how. But God’s discipline is always good for us, so that we might share in his holiness. 11 No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening—it’s painful! But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way.
12 So take a new grip with your tired hands and strengthen your weak knees. 13 Mark out a straight path for your feet so that those who are weak and lame will not fall but become strong.
Lord have Mercy.
