Politics and Halloween

I don’t stand amazed, I stand dumbfounded that the citizens of this great free country are seriously considering voting for Barak Obama.

Then I’m reminded of a Bible passage (Matt. 24), and I shiver as I realize that we are currently watching the proverbial scroll unfold. It’s the final countdown before the second coming of Christ. (Whether or not you or I believe it, doesn’t make it any less the Truth.)

I believe in my heart that McCain and Palin will win the White House, because there are many, many Christians who are praying, “Thy Kingdom come, THY WILL BE DONE” in this election. I hope and pray I am not wrong. (But I remind myself that God is in control, no matter who is in office, and He is NOT watching us here below, wringing His hands in dismay.) While America, who has largely turned her back on God and embraced the very things that are an abomination to Him, deserves judgment, I keep in mind that mercy has always triumphed over judgment. Now, America is trying to embrace Obama. It is a dark, dry time in our land.

If Obama manages to deceive the population into electing him, I expect that the people who voted for him who consider themselves Christians will get a nasty wake up call. It just may be the wake up call that America must have to be the nation (called by His name), who humbles herself to pray and seek His face (2 Chronicles 7:14). Christians need to quit looking at the distractions, i.e. the economy, the war, political correctness, (distractions of the “little foxes” variety, Sol 2) and look at the real issues. We are electing the leader of the free world, do we want a Godless administration? Taking God out of our schools hasn’t been a good idea; taking God out of our government is just as bad an idea.

Even for the people who don’t believe in God, the choice is vast experience and patriotic service over no experience and questionable patriotism. The deception is obvious, not even candy-coated: ACORN. Jeremiah Wright. Muslim ties. William Ayers. Al Sharpton. Socialism.

It’s most fitting that I choose the day of Halloween to talk about this election. It’s a “holiday” for which I have lost understanding…why is it, again, that we celebrate witches and ghosts and goblins with candy? People have tombstones and fake murder victims on their front lawns. Yes…the day is fitting indeed.

Christians, pray. Pray for the Holy Spirit to hover over every voting booth, and pray often: THY KINGDOM COME, THY WILL BE DONE. This election is just that important. It’s. Just. That. Important.

I'm just sayin'


  1. oh my gosh, Meg; I have goose bumps on my arms; without mentioning specific candidates, I did an entry about a day of fast our church is participating in tomorrow and how important it was to pray and I quoted that same Scripture!

    The Lord is in control; I have to keep remembering that and like I said in my old blog a few days back, no matter who wins the election, the Lord will still be on his throne at the end of that day and he knows what is best; someone here locally at a gathering I was at affirmed that

    we're fasting tomorrow (Saturday) and we are PRAYING, PRAYING, PRAYING!!!

    hugs to you


  2. Yes, I'll be praying. All this is very scary. I casted my vote already for the lesser of two evils as we've been saying. lol

  3. I am hoping and praying also. Check out this site, I thought you might like it. It gives me goosebumps.

  4. wonderfully written...that's what i've been doing and will continue to do! as you said...regardless of how it goes, God is in control and we must trust in Him.

  5. I told Gabby he is the devil, she said oh my gosh Mom that is what Jordyn's Mom said too. Lord help us if he wins...

  6. Thank God He is in control... otherwise I may have given up hope altogether. I am praying hard for this election but also reminding myself of those same things..that God is still in control and it all just brings us one step closer to the "end".


  7. I agree with you 100% Meg. Makes you wonder if God wants to be over a nation who has turned it's back on him. Thank God there are Christins left and HE will hopefully hear our prayers. Helen

  8. Very well written and so true. We need to be on our knees now more than ever. Linda back home in Washington

  9. I sincerely hope that McCain gets in, I'd vote for anyone named after an oven chip! Seriously I just hope that enough Americans who have there country at heart will vote for the lesser of the two evils. Jeannette xx

  10. Meg; I wished my pastor preached the sermon he preached tonight last week so I could send out CDs to everyone in time before the election; it WAS AWESOME! I'm going to wait to see when the church puts it up on their website and I will send it to you (website) to see if you can access it (or have time to do it before the election). It was the best sermon I ever heard about elections/etc without him endorsing a candidate (but he's a Republican and a Christian so I think I'm pretty sure who he's voting for;he did endorse 2 propositions we have on the ballot to vote yes on them but he explained why to vote yes; but my gosh, it was a great sermon) I'll send you the link tomorrow if they have it up by then.

    I'm not afraid with who gets elected on Tuesday. The Lord is with us; he knows what is best. I will trust in him.


  11. Good post! I've all but given up on people who can't see through Obama. He won his Illinois senatorial seat because the front runner was involved in a scandal at the last minute and his win was almost by default.

    He's a wet behind the ears, first term junior senator. Experience? None!

    His book should have been entitled "The Audacity of Hype." He will say anything you want to hear to get elected. If America elects him then they deserve him.



Thanks for visiting...Have a Pearl of a Day!
