Or, do you only believe “in” God?
Do you believe that there is only one true God, and that God has a son that allowed himself to be sacrificed as payment for your sins, and anyone that calls on his name will be saved?
Fine, even Satan believes that! However, Satan does not believe God. He does not believe that God is infallible. Satan believes that he can take control of this universe and be the one in control. He believes that he can make this universe his and be its God: to make this universe anything that he thinks it should be.
We look at this and say to ourselves, “What a fool Satan is”.
Well, instead of looking at someone else, perhaps we should look inward and ask ourselves if we are doing the same thing.
At this time, in this country (United States), I see the same attitude that Satan has, but it is among my brothers.
Be patent and let me explain.
(Dan 4:17 NIV) “‘The decision is announced by messengers, the holy ones declare the verdict, so that the living may know that the Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets over them the lowliest of men.’
God says the same thing in Romans.
(Rom 13:1 NIV) Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.
You see, my brothers believe that they are in charge, and they choose the authorities. They believe that they can make this country great, but they have lost their confidence in God and replaced it with a false confidence in themselves. They are placing their trust in man and do not even realize that is what they are doing!
This universe does not belong to man or Satan. It belongs to God and God chooses the authorities; man does not.
If I were to vote I would be proving, by my actions, that I did not believe Daniel 4:17 or Romans 13:1.
My brothers do not understand, even though they have ears to hear and eyes to see!
The one who believes in this country, and teaches others to do so, is building on the foundation of Jesus Christ using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay and straw, not on the Spirit. The Spirit says God is in control, not man.
(1 Cor 3:18&19 NIV) Do not deceive yourselves. If any one of you thinks he is wise by the standards of this age, he should become a “fool” so that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness”;
The wisdom of this world says we must choose a leader that will do God’s will and they do not understand that the rulers of this world are doing God’s will!
Don’t you see that the man that is president now was chosen by God, because he would turn the United States against Israel?
(Rev 16:14 NIV) They are spirits of demons performing miraculous signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty.
(Rev 20:7&8 NIV) When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth–Gog and Magog–to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore.
Theses are prophecies that are being fulfilled now. All of the nations of this world are allied with Iran against Israel. Israel, because they still do not believe God will protect them, will attack Iran and the final battle will begin.
Daniel was told “Go your way, Daniel, because the words are closed up and sealed until the time of the end.” This is the time of the end and the words are no longer sealed! We can all understand if we listen to God instead of man.
