If you have been privy to watch the recent unfolding of the Election 2016 media coverage, you have heard the ignorant and unwise prognosticators predicting, projecting and ignorantly assuming they in their darkened minds know the mind of the Lord in His providence in “bringing whatever comes to pass” for His glory and the good of His people.
As you watch the prognostications in the media and from the political parties, remember God’s Word, the Bible, holds all the keys and answers to His providence in these things. Ignore the ignorant for they shall be ignorant still. Remember the wisdom of God to His servant Job:
2 “Who is this that darkens council by words without knowledge?
3 Dress for action like a man;
I will question you, and you make it known to me.
4 “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
Tell me, if you have understanding.
5 Who determined its measurements—surely you know!
Or who stretched the line upon it?
6 On what were its bases sunk,
or who laid its cornerstone,
7 when the morning stars sang together
and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
8 “Or who shut in the sea with doors
when it burst out from the womb,
9 when I made clouds its garment
and thick darkness its swaddling band,
10 and prescribed limits for it
and set bars and doors,
11 and said, ‘Thus far shall you come, and no farther,
and here shall your proud waves be stayed’?

“God the great Creator of all things doth uphold, direct, dispose, and govern all creatures, actions, and things, from the greatest even to the least, by his most wise and holy providence, according to his infallible foreknowledge, and the free and immutable counsel of his own will, to the praise of the glory of his wisdom, power, justice, goodness, and mercy.” Westminster Confession of Faith, Chapter 5, 2
The Question of the GOP Convention in 2016:
Applied practically about what is to come at the GOP Convention: God is doing an amazing thing that the believers understand and praise Him for. He is taking the “weak” things and the “things of no large means” to bring to pass a great thing for His people. The unbelievers think they have stopped God’s people from placing into office their choice but not so, it will occur and be so much more than we could ask for or think. As they parade their evil, unbelief, gloat and bring forth their usurpation of God’s throne with their so-called “Messiah’s” remember God’s Word and believe it. Watch and see that the Lord is good. They will be shown to be of little consequence and God’s providence in history will prove amazing and stop the mouths of the unbelievers. To God be the glory great things He has done and is doing.

P.S. Some things never change and in politics this is especially so in the political world from election to election. The people’s choice in recent state elections is Donald J. Trump. The people have spoken but usurpers are at work to overthrow the will of the people. The Lord has raised up Donald J. Trump as a qualified candidate that is the people’s choice to “Make America Great Again” for the good of all Americans and in turn the world. To thwart the will of the people is an attempt to thwart the will of God in giving them voice and choice. God’s purposes will stand whether for blessing or judgment. Let all be warned of the awesome responsibility they have to rule justly, rightly and to serve God in truth, fairness and justice for the good of the nation. _TG/RW
