What’s happening to our country?
With Cruz out of the race for president, our choice is now Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, and I find myself more concerned for the future of our nation than I have ever been. I continue to believe that prophetic people are off base in prophesying the victor. Amos 3:7 says, “Surely the Lord God does nothing Unless He reveals His secret counsel To His servants the prophets.” What part of “secret” do we sometimes fail to understand? Doesn’t it seem clear that God does not permit us to speak openly everything we know from the Lord? God has reasons for keeping some counsel secret. In the case of this election, we as believers must not throw our brains on the table and stop thinking, discerning and praying simply because some prophetic voice – no matter who it is – declares one of the candidates to be God’s choice. Leaders of nations are just as often the people’s choice as they are God’s. To prove that point, the history of the world is replete with evil men and the disasters they brought about.
