USA Election and God's Portion for Our Lives

 

 

I followed the US election rather anxiously over the last year and often appealed to God about the concerns the GLBT community had about it. One day several months ago the Lord spoke this brief word to me. "The party that wins will not be the one with people of stronger faith, but the party that loses will be." I have pondered that somewhat cryptic word for months. I even volunteered to be one of "weaker" faith because it seemed so overwhelming to face "4 more years" of the current administration.

The election did not turn out as many GLBT had hoped, and frankly, the people I have spoken with about it are greatly distressed. This morning I asked God for clarification on the word he gave me several months ago. He first referred me to the following passage and then gave me the following word for our community.

John 20:20 And when He had said this, He showed them both His hands and His side. The disciples then rejoiced when they saw the Lord. . . . .
John 20:24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came.
John 20:25 So the other disciples were saying to him, "We have seen the Lord!" But he said to them, "Unless I see in His hands the imprint of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe."
John 20:26 After eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors having been shut, and stood in their midst and said, "Peace {be} with you."
John 20:27 Then He said to Thomas, "Reach here with your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand and put it into My side; and do not be unbelieving, but believing."
John 20:28 Thomas answered and said to Him, "My Lord and my God!"
John 20:29 Jesus said to him, "Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed {are} they who did not see, and {yet} believed." (NASB)

Prophetic Word from the Lord:

"My precious children, the distress of this moment will pass. Know that you are close to my heart and that my purposes for you have not been sidelined. Come to Me in this hour and I will cover you with My comfort and renew a sense of purpose in your life. I say to you that my kingdom is nothing like the kingdoms of men. I raise up and I bring down. I establish governments and remove them. The nations are but a speck in my hand. Do not fear the distress and anxiety of the nations. Stay tucked tightly in My arms and presence. I tell you today that many have prayed for changes in human government, but these changes, given by Me in response to faith, do not in themselves change the hearts of men. I want you to understand that the portion I have given you is to be used for a higher purpose than to move governments. The portion I give to you is to move the hearts of mankind. The change of earthly government indicates a season change for you as well. I have wisdom, days of intercession, teachings, and acts born of the mighty power of My Spirit to show you. This new season of outpouring and equipping will unlock deep wells of compassion, understanding and love in you and those around you. My Word and My Spirit will reach soul wounds of unspeakable depths and bring healing to bodies, hearts and spirits. Your very lives are the keys I am holding to bring change to others. I honor and will continue to honor the faith you have maintained in the longs seasons when there didn't seem to be reason to continue. I declare you blessed this day. I declare you blessed. BLESSED. BLESSED. BLESSED."

 

Note: If you are still confused about how a gay Christian can feel they are 'right' with God I encourage you to read the section of the web site entitled "Gay and Christian? YES!"
