John 14:6
Yeshua (Jesus) said, “I Am the Way – and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except through Me.

The results of the 2012 Elections here in the USA have raised really really good questions. What some see as disaster, often finds their way to the questions that lead one Home, rather than in circles. This is the beauty of “things not going the way one hopes, planned, or expects”. Or at least it can be. The same is true as well, such circumstances can cause one to ask no question that profits a thing to ask it. Such as; “Why are the stars…stars?” Or, “What is the problem with people?” They both require a Source that knows the answer and is totally trustworthy. The former question God may answer, but only in part. The latter, God is notorious for turning that question back on itself as the place to begin in answering it. “What is the problem with you?”
See there, I have just noted the Source of Truth, at least the only One who has ever been worthy of it!

As of 11:15 MST, the air was full of shock and bereavement amongst those who voted for Romney, sure that this was God’s man for America! I noticed the shock wasn’t so much that Romney lost, as people felt that God had. I found myself at a loss. Why in heavens name (and I say that with reverence), why would ANYONE assume Romney is/was uniquely God’s man? According to Romney the “buck doesn’t stop” at Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah! He is a honestly spoken Mormon. Is it the Mormon religions adherence to morality that deceives people so? The Pharisees were very moral. So, what did the Truth say about them?

Matthew 15:7-9 (Yeshua – Jesus speaking)
You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you,
‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is useless, because they teach man-made rules as if they were doctrines.'”
*Isaiah 29:13

This was just one of many times the Truth – Yeshua – called the “moral police” hypocrites. Which begs the next question.

“When did morals ever become a saving grace to anyone much less a country?”

Didn’t work out too well for Israel. Rule keeping can be done by donkey’s, monkeys, ANTS! Why keep a rule? Now there’s a question!

Almost, everyone at least says they know why lying is a good thing not to do! Almost! But who can say why severe adherence to honesty is good? As many as those who acknowledge the former? Not on your life! Let me illustrate.

Ladies, we have all been here. You are sitting with a group of people talking down about someone you all know. Now it may be that the low-dog talking, mocking, giggling is based on an action they did or do that’s “true”. But! Deep down you knew…you know…that what you are at the least joining in with is wrong, at the most outright adding to. Why? How? How do we know this deep down? But then do it anyway? Morality has nothing to do with it…if you’re honest. It’s because that person – the object of “fun” is YOU! Everyone gets perceived as wrong, dumb, stupid, ugly, (the list goes on)…everyone. Yet, no one really knows why. Except God. God loves each of His creatures, only He can judge. This is the Truth that gets ignored here. No one can be morally honest enough with themselves without an act of God!

In the interest of not excluding…
Men, how about you? You are driving down the road, keeping the law (ok, keeping up with traffic which is breaking the speed limit by varying degrees – honesty check #1). So anyway, someone starts “riding your tail”, then whips around you, and cuts you off! Then they have the nerve to “give you the bird” for their lack of civility! You proceed to let out a “blessing” in the form of a curse. Tell me you don’t justify your actions because of theirs?! Tit for tat is morality right? Wrong!

Both these are not gender specific, at least, I – a woman admit I’ve done both. But you get the picture?
Morality is:
A) Subjective
B) Depends on the motive for its need.
C) Completely useless to change a person from inside their own skin.

So…where did “morals” come from?
Easy…Exodus 20, or better…the God who created the Universe, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The God of the Bible, The Messiah, Yeshua, Jesus, where the “Buck really stops” Genesis to Revelations…period. No book of Mormon, no adds, no subtractions.
So how can Romney be God’s man? And not Obama? At least Obama doesn’t claim to be righteous! Or a christian. Or a follower of Jesus. Truth is…neither of these, nor ANY other person on our ballots was “God’s man” or America’s hope. He sent that Man, 2000 years ago. Truth is America doesn’t want the Truth, God’s Man, or morality. Hard to accept? No, unless the Truth has not taken presidency inside your heart. Who’s to say God didn’t just save us a whole new set of troubles? Whats easier to tackle, the trouble you know or the ones you don’t? God has not left the “planet”. We on the other hand can’t stop complaining about it, or trying to “get off it”! Reality? Why is TV, gaming, computer internet social media, for some work, some hobbies, some sports, some politics, some survival, hunting, pornography…and the list goes on…
Why is this the chosen coarse of action by people? Because the Truth is…to us reality is just honestly – no fun. Some would say fair instead, no matter…its offensive! Uncomfortable to be severely honest to a “high moral” degree.

So…what do we say to the Election results in America 2012?

I’ll quote the Truth.

Romans 13:1-2
Everyone is to obey the governing authorities. For there is no authority that is not by God. Therefore, whoever resist the authorities is resisting what God has instituted, and those who resist will bring judgement on themselves.

Isaiah 45:5-7
I am Adonai (the Lord); there is no other; besides Me there is no God. I am arming you, although you don’t know Me, so that those from the east and those from the west will know that there is none besides Me – I am Adonai; there is no other. I form light, I create darkness; I make well-being, I create woe; I, Adonai, do all these things.

Psalms 103:19
Adonai has established His Throne in heaven; His kingly power rules everything.

Proverbs 8:12-14; 22-31
I, Wisdom, live together with caution; I attain knowledge and discretion. The fear of Adonai is hatred of evil. I hate pride and arrogance, evil ways and duplicitous speech. Good advise is Mine and common sense; I am insight, power is Mine.
Adonai made Me as the beginning of His way, the first of His ancient works. I was appointed before the world, before the start, before earth’s beginnings. When I was brought forth, there were no ocean depths, no springs brimming with water. I was brought forth before the hills, before the mountains had settled in place; He had not yet made the earth, the fields or even the earth’s first grains of dust. When He established the heavens, I was there. When He drew the horizon’s circle on the deep, when He set the sky’s above in place, when the fountains of the deep poured forth, when He prescribed boundaries for the sea, so that its water would not transgress His command, when He marked out the foundations of the earth, I was with Him as someone He could trust. For Me, everyday was pure delight, as I played in His presence all the time, playing everywhere on His earth, and delighting to be with humankind.
*All of chapter 8 is worth a read 🙂

Any questions? If so, shall we endeavor to ask Him? And expect His answer, accept His silence, honor His absolute power? This is my prayer.

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤
