A New King

I’m reading numerous articles and assertions from jilted sisters and brothers, who, disenchanted that Trump has now lost the electoral vote; are making defiant declarations that Joseph Biden will never be their president.

Friends, if Biden (whom I could not vote for) is not our President, then we ain’t got one, ’cause the prophets anointing oil seems to have also run a little short in 2020.

It’s time for us followers of Jesus to quit posturing ourselves and start prostrating ourselves before the holy God. The Father has been removing everything that hinders first-commandment love in our world and our nation. Everything. He’s done SO MUCH THIS YEAR to set up face-to-face conversation with us, if we’ll just humble ourselves and dialogue deeply with Him, we’ll find everything we need (and much more) – in Him!

At this point, our continual press for a king is our evangelical family taking on the spirit of the faithless nation of Israel. When Israel continued to clamor for a compromised king, the Lord bared His broken heart to the prophet Samuel: “for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them.” (1 Samuel 8:7)

Beloved, we dare not let Samuel’s reality become the reality of Jeremiah. “Hear this, you peoples of the earth: ‘Take note! I am about to bring disaster on these people. It will come as punishment for their scheming. For they have paid no attention to what I have said, and they have rejected my summons.” (Jeremiah 6:19)
