November 2 will be our General Election day in the United States of America.  The results of this election, I believe, will determine the future of America and whether or not the United States of America stays a free nation and its Constitution stays in place.  There are many who believe there will be a great change in our Congress with this election coming up and they believe this is going to put our nation back on track with what our Founding Fathers desired for this country and that once again the Constitution will mean something.

People are expecting change in government for the better as a result of this November election but I believe there will be no real change unless there is an arising in our nation of spokes persons for God like we see in the Old Testament with Joseph (Gen 41:15-57), Moses (Ex 3:1-20), Caleb (Num 13:25-30), Isaac (Gen 26:1-14), Daniel (Dan 1:1-20; Dan 2:1-13), our Lord Jesus (Luke 2:41-47) and others and we get the answers that we need in this time from God and speak them out to those in authority.  The truth is no human being has all the answers we need, humanly speaking.

Whatever your political party may be, I want to speak to you as a Christian with this blog.

Whoever may be President or whatever political party controls the Congress of this United States; as Christians we must realize that no man, no political party, etc. can save America but Almighty God.  There is no man, no woman, no political party that has all the answers, the right answers for the hard issues that this nation faces today.  These people elected in this November election are still going to have to face hard issues and come up with answers.  And if we would be honest there are no real answers to these problems we face without God.

This is why I write this blog for you to see as a Christian that we must step forward with the answers by the Spirit of God.  We have inside of us the God of the Universe who created it all and the bible tells us that He upholds it all by the power of His Word and we also have inside of us the Kingdom of God.  This Kingdom has its own government, its own principles that will govern for eternity and right now it can be the government that can help this natural government that has no real answers humanly speaking.

I must remind you that once you were born again you were “transferred into the Kingdom of God’s dear Son”.  That means you are already a citizen of heaven.  So you are not limited only to this world’s limited wisdom but you actually have access to all the wisdom and counsel of this eternal Kingdom that will never pass away because it is run by the wisdom and counsel of God Almighty.  This Kingdom has its own principles, laws and answers that are not of this world but they are supernatural.  And when applied they can have supernatural affect on every situation where they are applied no matter what the problem is.  All God given answers are followed with God’s supernatural intervention.

So as a citizen of heaven first and then a citizen of the United States of America, you not only have your vote to cast in this election in the United States but you also have the wisdom of the Spirit of God to give to this nation.

We actually have the Spirit of God inside of us who can give us wisdom, understanding, counsel and knowledge that is not of this world that can correct every problem there is on this earth at this present time.  You see it again and again in the Old Testament where God’s spokes person gave the divine counsel of God to a leader and nation to save it, enlarge it and to deliver it from its enemies and now it’s our turn as men and women of the Kingdom of God on this earth today.

As some of you know I am part of a prayer group who meet with two of our local mayors for prayer once a month.  These mayors have some challenging times and need answers to problems and I always prepare myself before those meetings to pray and seek the Lord for wisdom to share with them.  And this scripture below is one of the scriptures the Lord gave to me to share with them and I believe this is wisdom that needs to be shared with Christians and yes, even people who hold a political office in this time.  This scripture is speaking about Jesus but we are in Christ and so this scripture applies to us as well. This scripture reveals to Christians we aren’t limited just to natural thinking and what our five senses tell us about situations, just as was the cause when Jesus lived on this earth as a human being, but instead we are capable of contacting the Spirit of God by our spirit/spiritual senses and receive information that is supernatural.  This scripture in Isa 11:1-5 is how we can and must operate now more than ever!  Jesus did and we must!

Isa 11:1-5 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.KJV

This scripture goes along with the New Testament, 1 Cor 12:1,4-11, where it is speaking about the Gifts of the Spirit in operation in the Church. I don’t believe these gifts were meant to be in operation just behind the four walls of the Church building but the Church was to operate in these gifts every single day and in every single place they would go.  So compare these scriptures with Isa 11:1-5 and see that this scripture in 1 Cor 12:1,4-11 is speaking again about the same Spirit of God and His operation through a Christian who will yield to the Holy Spirit so these gifts can operate through them.

1 Cor 12:1,4-11Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. KJV

God used Isaiah, Jeremiah, Caleb, Joseph, Daniel, Moses, Elijah, and many others to speak to leaders and nations the will of God, the plan of God in times of trouble and famine, etc…  How much more does God need His men/women speak to the leaders of today the wisdom, counsel of God, the answers where there are no answers humanly speaking.

Would you be willing to lay your life down for this generation, this nation and seek the Lord for the answers these leaders of our country need today and then speak them out for God?

We need a righteous government in America and that is what we are believing for and receiving by faith.  We need our soldiers, God bless them!  We need fireman, teachers to speak the truth of God into the lives of our youth, ministers of the truth, men/women in government and business with highest integrity and using Kingdom principles, etc. but just as importantly we need men/women of God who will be God’s voice in the earth and deliver God’s fit word to our leaders, whether it be a President, Congress person, Governor, Mayor, etc..  We need those who get the answers from God and deliver them to these people who struggle every single day to find answers.  We who know our God and hear His voice need to deliver to these leaders the interpretations to dreams such as Joseph and Daniel did in the Old Testament, deliver to them plans how to prepare and handle shortages and know how to handle national catastrophes before they happen like Joseph did in the Old Testament.

Gifts of the Spirit are not just to be used in Church meetings but in everyday living, every day operation in government, education, business, finances, courts, family, media, arts, and yes even in our military.  Wouldn’t our military like to know who their enemy was, where they were located and the plans of the enemy and be prepared to defeat them without causalities on our side. This is all possible if the Church will rise up in this time and reveal what the Spirit of God is speaking.

This must happen, otherwise the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ will be part of the problem for our government and society.  We must and I pray that we will instead be the people group that Isaiah 11 and 1 Cor 11 speaks about that operates by the Spirit of God with supernatural credentials.

This actually is operation of the Kingdom of God in the earth.  The Kingdom is here.  The Kingdom of God is on the inside of us ready to burst out as we obey the Spirit of God and allow it to operate through us.

Pray this prayer right now:  Father God, I realize now this nation, the United States of America, can have no real change without the invention of your Spirit and your Kingdom.  Your Spirit dwells in me and I am in your Kingdom and I want and desire the Spirit of God and the Kingdom of God to operate through me right now. I submit to You, Holy Spirit, and ask you to operate through me.  I will to no longer live as a mere human being and judge things after human understanding, nor judge things by what I see and hear but instead I believe you Holy Spirit to quicken understanding to me so that I judge all things with righteousness just as my Lord Jesus and I will judge all things with justice and integrity.  I yield to your leading whether it is to deliver a word of wisdom or word of knowledge to a government official, operate in faith that moves mountains out of my nation or city’s way, cooperate with you in your healing of people or working miracles, creative miracles, deliver a word of prophecy to a government official or a military official or a teacher or whomever, allow you speak to me so I discern the spirit of a person who has the intent of evil and wicked people whose intent is to corrupt and destroy this nation for their own personal gain or even in a business or business deal, and use me to pray or speak in tongues the will of God in a situation and delivering the message of those tongues to the person intended.  Father, Holy Spirit I yield my life to you now so that your Kingdom operates through me and thus can operate in this United States of America so that real change, lasting change comes to keep our nation free and prospering.  Use me is my humble prayer, Oh God.  God bless America, in Jesus name.  Amen and amen.
