"Clap your hands, all you people! Shout to God with a joyful voice" (Ps. 47:1).
In Staten Island, New York, amid shouts of "We did it" in the victory of Mr. Donald Trump and others elected last night; and for some tears of frustration that some not so favorite candidates won and their favorites lost in the presidential, senate, house and gubernatorial bids, there is a voice calling from heaven's courts: "Come together in agape love for as the 'One Blood' of Acts 17:26."
"Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth; break out in loud songs, and sing praises. Sing unto the Lord with the harp, with the harp and the sound of melody, with trumpets and sound of the horn; make a joyful noise before the Lord, the King. Let the sea roar, and all that fills it, the world and those who live in it; let the rivers clap their hands; let the hills be joyful together before the Lord, for He is coming to judge the earth. With righteousness He will judge the world, and the peoples with justice" (Ps. 98:4-9).
Let's remember that God has the final say in who ascends to seats of power and who does not. God has decided the outcome. "We the People" have voted in 2016, advancing a shift for the sanctity of life, family and community. The election is over. Now what?
"Let every person be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except from God, and those that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment" (Rom. 13:1-2).
For "in-spirit-and-in-truth" Christians, what happens moving ahead is our focus. Yesterday is now history.
At the turn of the century, America faced a crossroads. What would the new millennium bring to us? In many ways, for the first decade and subsequent years, until yesterday, America was embroiled in civil unrest. Infractions on moral values were strained past a point of endurance. Economic upheaval threatened to topple our economy. Racial tensions mounted. War loomed over our nation, threatening our very existence. That too is now history. Right now today, it is time to appeal to God for the healing of our nation. Men and women in leadership and all of the people in this nation and around the world do not have the power to accomplish this feat alone. Yet: "With God, all things are possible" (Matt. 19:26).
The spiritual community must now keep praying listening to and following and obeying God. No matter what humans say, God has allowed Mr. Trump to rise thus far. What happens next is up to God.
"Be not deceived. God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows, that will he also reap" (Gal. 6:7).
Finally we must always remember that no human can save America or the world. Only the God of John 3:16 can do that! More will be revealed in the days ahead. During this shift of power, please pray for a peaceful transition among the governing branches of America and the world. Please pray that the people of faith in the God of heaven and Earth become more committed in prayer and obedience to God.
