Seems like a fair point, doesn’t it?
And do you know I won’t be voting? Oh no, and I’m going to tell you why.
First of all, let’s just note that Nigel Farage’s “Brexit Party” is about to wipe the floor with both the main parties in next week’s European Elections – elections, I might add, which shouldn’t be happening, because we should have left the EU on the 29th March. According to a legal challenge which the media is down-playing, we might already have left the EU on that date, but that is an aside, because that has yet to be heard in a court of law.
So next week the Brexit Party will achieve a landslide, and Theresa May’s hold on both the leadership of the Tory Party and on the country is going to be lost – and I suspect that a general election will be triggered, leaving us with a Corbyn government by default (if you divide the grass-root conservative vote like this, Corbyn will benefit).
And Brexit will be kicked ever further into the long grass.
So that is where we seem to be, if anything I read can be believed, and now for why I won’t be voting.
Normally I would do so, and certainly did in the referendum which brought us all such hope. But something has changed since then – I have been studying the scriptures more, and I recognise this system is not God’s way of doing things. God wanted to rule us Himself. But we rejected Him and asked for a King, and then years down the line we got rid of that too, and installed ourselves as the leaders of our own nations. We vote, and if 51% of those who vote (which might only be 50% of the population) say we should go one way, that will be the way the whole country must go.
And it’s the wrong way.
God said to the children of Israel that they were going to be given the land of Canaan, and that they were NOT to obey the statutes of that land – let’s read it from scripture: [emphasis added]
22 ‘You shall therefore keep all My statutes and all My judgments, and perform them, that the land where I am bringing you to dwell may not vomit you out. 23 And you shall not walk in the statutes of the nation which I am casting out before you; for they commit all these things, and therefore I abhor them. 24 But I have said to you, “You shall inherit their land, and I will give it to you to possess, a land flowing with milk and honey.” I am the Lord your God, who has separated you from the peoples. Leviticus 20:22-24 NKJV
The land vomited the people out because it was defiled: [emphasis added]
24 ‘Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before you. 25 For the land is defiled; therefore I visit the punishment of its iniquity upon it, and the land vomits out its inhabitants. 26 You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations, either any of your own nation or any stranger who dwells among you 27 (for all these abominations the men of the land have done, who were before you, and thus the land is defiled), 28 lest the land vomit you out also when you defile it, as it vomited out the nations that were before you. 29 For whoever commits any of these abominations, the persons who commit them shall be cut off from among their people.
30 ‘Therefore you shall keep My ordinance, so that you do not commit any of these abominable customs which were committed before you, and that you do not defile yourselves by them: I am the Lord your God.’ ” Leviticus 18:24-30 NKJV
So the sin (transgression of the law – 1 John 3:4) caused the land to be defiled, and so the land vomited out it’s inhabitants, and God said to live by His law so that it wouldn’t happen to them – that’s us!
So what have we done? We have replaced His precious law – Lev 18:5 “You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, which if a man does, he shall live by them: I am the Lord.” – and we have made legal the things He hates. Get ready to be vomited out! Get ready for the judgement!
And so voting – giving credence to a system which can never get us back to where we were meant to be – is not only a waste of time and effort, but another way of remaining tied to the ways of this world, and not God’s ways.
There are some things in the Law of Moses which I cannot do, and some which don’t apply to me, but I can acknowledge the whole law as righteous, and the whole law as the only method to know right from wrong.
I will not give my vote to anyone, because to do so is to say that it’s acceptable for them to make new laws – laws which every day encroach more fully on my freedom to speak the truth of the Word of God. God said:
Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you. Deuteronomy 4:2 KJV
Well, we have made ourselves abominable as a nation before God, and we revel in that more every year. No longer will I add my vote to that.
God Bless you
