Noticing all the hateful and cruel things said to people in this political climate, I have been studying demonic oppression again.
Sometimes we forget that at one time Satan was a glorious angel who served God. He began to become full of pride and started a rebellion. Then he was kicked out of heaven and down to earth. However, according to the Bible 1/3 of the previous angelic beings went with Him. They too were thrown to earth. You may have heard these beings referred to as “fallen angels.”
Satan was already in rebellion when he led Eve to rebel against God in the Garden of Eden, by eating of the forbidden fruit. This would indicate that Satan’s rebellion against God was probably before the Heavens and Earth (as we know them) was created.
Sometimes we meet evil people. People who for no reason at all seem to delight in stirring up trouble for people. In praying about this once, God revealed to me that in those cases those people, unknowingly, have demon oppression and those demons recognize Christ in us and they find that threatening.
I bring this up to remind you that all the evil that surrounds us these days has a source. That source is Satan. So, as they say, consider the source.
I believe that all the political fighting is becoming very stressful to people in both parties. Think about a contentious relationship that you may have had in the past. It might have been so filled with fighting and dysfunction that you literally became ill. When I was in a marriage like that I simply wanted out, so that I could live in peace and serenity again. At one point you realize that the person causing the dysfunction will not change and so you simply give up and separate from them in order to save your soul.
Perhaps all this contention will lead to people deciding not to care about politics anymore. After all where does it get you? No one is likely to change his or her opinion because of something someone else says to them on Social Media.
What I feel God has instructed me to do is to simply keep quiet and stay in peace He especially instructed me to do that with those whose political views are different from mine. The scripture that comes to me often is “Be still and know that I am GOD!”
I turn off my television often. I then pray, read the Word of God and take care of things around the house I have neglected.
This is a very tense situation and I want you to know that God has warned me that it may get very bad before its all over. God recently gave me direction in the following scripture verse;
“Go, my people, enter your rooms and shut the doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until his wrath has passed by.” Isaiah 20
So, if the worst, whatever that turns out to be, happens I ask you to heed the word of the Lord and not get into the middle of it. I do not want to get into a political discussion here but there are several things brewing on the political scene that may turn out to be bad for us all. Please remember the above verse. Stop, think and then act as a last resort.
God is in control and he is greater then any spiritual battle we may be facing as well.
Remember regardless of what party you favor, there are good and bad people in charge and our God is in heaven and He will take care of His people. Of that, I have no doubt.
In His Unconditional Love,
