Global SITREP E1-14: America Makes A Right Turn
5 November 2014: A political tsunami has in a single day of mid-term election voting completely remade the Congress of these United States of America. A great majority of "We the People" have exercised our Constitutional right and restored political power in the U.S. House of Representatives and in the U.S. Senate back to the Grand Old Party thereby putting an end to the unsavory pro-Marxist-Muslim agenda of the Obama Administration. Republicans, Democrats and especially the Independent, non-politically affiliated American voters have handed an anti-Obama mandate to our newly elected Representatives and Senators to radically change the direction that this country had been going in the past several years.
From the National Journal: Here's what the GOP electoral victories in the House of Representatives looks like graphically illustrated with every congressional district colored in red (GOP) or blue (DEM).
The net effect of this election upon the world will be profound, particularly in the Middle East with respect to our great ally, the State of Israel; in the war-torn region straddling the Tigris and Euphrates valleys; in Europe were a newly belligerent Russia has resorted to war to address political issues, and in the Pacific Rim. Over the next two years great changes are going to occur, with many - if not most of them - having great prophetic significance. But first, and beginning in January 2015, there will be a reordering in these United States, even if temporary, to fully restore Constitutional rule, end executive fiat, and present an America to the world that is decidedly Christian in its principles as well as foreign and economic policies. This will be a resurgent United States of America, so help us God.
The Biblical Authority
Paul writing in Romans 13 under the authority and inspiration of the Holy Spirit, even while still a citizen of under the tyranny that was imposed by Imperial Roman Empire, and which he once faithfully served, said we are all subject to our governing authorities. Paul then explained why: "For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves." The apostle Peter stated much the same thing in 1 Peter 2:13-14, and then amplified that in the next breath saying, "For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: as free, yet not using liberty as a cloak for vice, but as servants of God."
This is our duty as Christians and as Americans, and we have faithfully executed it as required of us. However, we have no such duty to obey rulers who impose by any means, such as laws or edicts, which would force us to disobey God or who evidence in themselves the traits of godlessness, evil manipulations and any dealings promoting a false religion in submission to a false god such as Islam is in this world. In this Proverbs 14:34 speaks very clearly.
And this was the point where many of us quickly drew the line that we would not cross with the Obama Administration. Obviously, a great majority of us - Republican, Democrat and Independent, Bride of Christ and secular individuals alike - who decided that enough was enough. We Christians effected a change through our enfranchisement fully in faith that the political change would be in the furtherance of the Lord's will in these last days. Who among the Bride of Christ goes into a polling place without first praying in the Spirit for the Lord's perfect guidance? None of us I would like to believe. In a little over two months time, and going forward in the next two years, we will have an even greater opportunity to hold accountable those who we have placed in the various offices of our respective states and the Congress, because those we have just voted to remove paid no heed in their accountability to us under our chosen form of government. Our government as all human government exists under the Lord's establishment of the third dispensation, the dispensation of human government (Genesis 8:20 through Genesis 11:9), that will exist for us until the Harpazo, and for the world at-large until the second coming of Jesus Christ and the establishment of His Government.
We operate on a higher level, a Spiritual level, than those who remain in sin; it is our task to lead them by the power of the Holy Spirit towards righteousness. Our leadership is by example. We do not retreat and hide from the world, we are commanded by our Lord and Savior to go out and be fishers of men. As long as we, the Bride of Christ, walk upon this earth our purpose is clear because only God the Father knows when the fullness of the gentiles will have come in. The election is behind us, now we carry on.
