God's Warning: The Day After the Election
As I write this, the election results are in and most commentators are calling the results of the presidential election an historic upset in elections. No matter what your feelings are toward the election, God's warning to His people should be heard loud and clear:
Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation. When his breath departs he returns to the earth; on that very day his plans perish. (Ps 146:3-4)
It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man. It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in princes. (Ps 118:8-9)
Stop regarding man in whose nostrils is breath, for of what account is her? (Isa 2:22)
Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart turs away from the LORD. (Jer 17:5)
O' Church, O' people of God, let not your political victories be your hope. Be warned: the people of God must swear allegiance to the kingdom of God alone.
