2016 The Election Year

Sunday, February 14, 2016

This election year – 2016

2016 is, as we know in America, an election year.  I find that it is interesting that as I and other prophets seek the understanding of the Lord for who will be our next President, none have been given a specific or clear answer.  Of course, there has been given a lot of understanding about each candidate, both GOP and Democrat. 

But the clear noticeability is that God is not at this time revealing who will be in that position come November, 2016.

I believe that it is very important that the prophets and apostles in this time use what they have heard as an education process for the Body of Christ and for the nation’s citizens, in regards to getting a glimpse of the heart of God for the United States.

It is perhaps an understatement to declare to the people of the nation that the choices we make in the positioning of the next President will affect the outcome of America being in existence as we know it even 10 years from now.

I believe that one of the reasons why God has not been revealing just yet who is going to be the President is because of the history of the body of Christ in the past when it came to voting.  The records speak for themselves when it comes to this unfortunate neglect of voting.

And because of this, I will state that God’s voice is silent at this time for who would best serve the nation.  But in response to this, it is also very important to realize that if the body of Christ, who has been given a voice for culture and for being anointed kings, will rise up and declare by voting and by voice the Constitutional right to go to the polling places, the future would be very powerful for the nation.

In Romans 9:17, it is written – “For Scripture says to Pharaoh, ‘I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.” (ESV)


Exodus 9:16 reads, “But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.” (ESV)

It is necessary that we in the body of Christ realize today that this is part of the word of the Lord for His saints to walk into lest there be a failure again for the changing of culture and the removal of ungodly ideals that most in the nation(s) are currently holding on too.

You know, there is a very old teaching that God is in control of this planet.  But as we search the bible, we discover that this is a false teaching and is in truth error.  God is not in control.  He never has been when it comes to the governing of this earth.

If you take a look at Genesis 1:29, you will read that God the Creator said to Adam, “Be fruitful and multiply, subdue the earth, have dominion.” (KJV)

In the English Standard Version, it reads, And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

The word dominion, according to the Hebrew, is Radah, and it refers not to God’s rule and responsibility but to man’s.  It actually means to reign from a position of sovereignty.  Or to put it more simply - to rule and to govern.

Look at Genesis 1:26; “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.”

If I take this word of scripture literally, then it is saying to mankind, God has made us in His likeness in order to carry His own authority over His creation.  That would mean that if I am in the image of God, after His likeness, then I carry His characteristics, His power, His light! 

According to this command that came from the mouth of our God, when you and I become the “blood bought saints of God through His Son,” we have the very righteousness of God.  That means we have His demeanor, His Supernatural Thinking, His Outlook.  Just like Adam did from when he was created and placed in the Garden of Eden.

And it is also evidence that God has chosen for man to be in control of the planet.  Now do not get me wrong here.  The planet belongs to God.  But He cares so much for teaching us His ways, that He stated to Adam and it also goes to us, that we are to be the ones who rule and govern the earth. 

But - the conditions that God stated to mankind was that it was still His planet and therefore, as His stewards, we are to govern it with his rules and culture.

So I must say that in this election year, there is a choice that God has for who will lead this nation.  But until the body of Christ rises up in obedience and seeks His ideas, His interests, we may not prophetically know of the outcome of the elections until November in the natural.  But again, I have to say that I know God wants us as His children to know the answer supernaturally by Holy Ghost leading us in all truth.

The Body of Christ has for too long made decisions on voting that do not hold the interests or thoughts of God.  In fact, it has become widely known that many voters who call Jesus Christ Lord have not even put the Father of Lights into the equation.  And because of this selfish decision, the last positioning of President of the United States has become less than spectacular.

When the blood covered Saints of God put the Father into the equation, then we can see a dramatic change to our nation, to our cities, and to our very neighborhoods.

But it first must reflect putting our Lord into what is going on. 

Today, it is very important to know the direction of the Father in all that is occurring.  If we as a nation, and we as the body of Christ, make decisions based on a wrong perspective, then we will not be in one accord with the mind of the Lord.

I have many people who tell me that they will vote for the ones that are Christian.  And I have to ask them, “why?”  You see, too many times in the past, the body of Christ has looked for a President like they look for a pastor.  The problem with doing this is that we are missing the true potential of what the Lord may want.

How many times did the Lord decide that the best person to lead the nations was not a believer in Him?  The bible is full of illustrations of wicked kings, of ambitious kings, and of even tyrants that were in place by God in order to bring the people into knowing His will and His perceptions.  And when God moved on behalf of His people, there was victory, triumph, and Kingdom activity of heaven upon this earth.

But I also have to say, that in those cases where the people had a wrong leadership, it was because they corporately neglected the counsel and the leading of God being involved all the time.

And because of this, we have missed the proposed choices of God throughout the last few decades.  And even when we have had a President who was open about their faith, we found that they made serious mistakes as well when they didn’t get the prayer support from the body of Christ.

Right now, we have several candidates that say they are “Christian.”  Does that make them qualified to lead?  Absolutely not!  But what these who speak out such things in their debates and in their gatherings are really hoping for is the vote of the evangelicals in order to swing the Presidential nomination into their corner. 

Now do not misunderstand me.  There really are some who are part of the Body of Christ who are running as candidates.  But in truth, the majority of those running do not really have a relationship with Jesus Christ in a personal way, yet.

There have been elections in the past that I believe God wanted to be involved in.  Yet, the people who declare the Lord in those times left Him out of the process.  And so it was, that a hard decision by a Loving Father had to be made.  And in this neglect of involving the Lord, He said, “I will give them what they want.”

With that said, I must declare that this election is going to be a very different one with regards to what God has to say and what God wants.  That is why there is a wait and see moment happening in this dimension of where we are in today’s time.

We have been given an opportunity to invite God the Creator to become involved in helping us to rule and reign now.  And it is again very important that we ask for assistance in knowing how to pray, how to vote, and how to cause the saints of God to rise up and go to the polls as well.

We can either fight a political battle with an incorrect thinking that is not in one accord with the Lord.  Or we can find out what is His mind for each of us in the time of voting.  With the issues of the economy, ISIS, immigration, education, and even with Muslims, it is important to have the choices be of what God intends for this day.

So perception by the mind of Christ is very important.  Realize that this is going to be such a great time for the body of Christ to see the Lord move.  But for it to happen, we must re-think our perspectives and models from the past.  And with this intention, desire, and petition, we can know what the standing of God as the One True God for America is all about.  And as His ambassadors, we will truly declare and proclaim how our God reigns in all the political realms.

God Bless You In Jesus Christ’s Name!
