A divided nation cannot stand.

Looking at the American presidential election in 2020, one is struck by the divisions and hatred.  It is not just a friendly jostling about who will be the next president.  It is serious, often violent and hateful.  

Let us compare countries in this world with God’s eternal Country, the new heaven and earth,

  ‘Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away….’  Revelation 21:1  

God will be its eternal President.  

Will there be insurrection, dissatisfaction and hostility towards Him as President? No!  God is too wise for that.  He created this natural world for a specific reason.  It is to give all people who ever lived the opportunity to make a decision (on this side of the grave).  While we live we choose to either submit to ‘God the President’ or reject Him.  That decision has eternal consequences as it can never be revoked after death.  One is either part of God’s Kingdom on the new earth or with Satan in his kingdom of burning sulphur.  

This temporary life is an absolutely necessary stage in God’s plans.  Here one decides whom to elect as one’s own personal leader, God or Satan.  Jesus said, 

‘Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.’  Matthew 12:25  

In God’s eternal Kingdom there will be no divisions.  He knows there are many people who, based on false propaganda, regard Him as bad.  But they can cast their vote now.  God’s Kingdom is eternal and He understands that a divided nation cannot stand.  It would be interesting to see what will happen to America in this ‘civil war.’   Will God’s Word be proved true, or not?   

God takes precautions that His Kingdom is united.  If the people of America don’t give attention to it, things might turn out for the worse for that great country.  One can only pray that  people will understand that God’s Kingdom is the only one that will last eternally.

As you can see in the photo, there are two of us. We live and work together 24/7, studying and enjoying our grandchildren. Our passion is to know and understand what will happen after death. Is there a way to provide for and invest in that?

  1. I believe we are seeing the outplay of prophetic utterance in America. We are facing a judgment because of our disobedience. It has been spoken about from pulpits in America for over three generations and we have not listened. That said, those of us who believe are not Americans first but citizens of the Eternal Kingdom of God. In some “Christian “circles it is almost blasphemy to talk like that but we must start recognizing where our real citizenship lies, and stop relying on a government that is going further and further away from God (in all its political parties) to be our resource.
