November 7 we will be going to the polls. Many issues have been presented in the media in the past few years that have been an attempt to influence the makeup of the executive, legislative and judicial branches of our government. The media has subtly has been trying to influence the way you vote and how you think. Political parties are trying to influence you to vote their way. There have been a lot of lies and flagrant distortions of the truth by the media and certain political figures, Hollywood, etc. to get you to vote according to their agendas. I also want to influence your vote, and I'll tell you that up front, I'm asking you to VOTE TO SAVE AMERICA!
What kind of America do you want for yourselves and your families in the future? Do you want to continue to have control of your finances and choices, or do you want to give that responsibility to the government? There are some candidates who are advocates for bigger government, more regulations, higher taxes, and ultimately less freedom. America is a capitalist (free enterprise) nation, I was almost afraid to use the word capitalist because it has almost become a dirty word, but people from other countries are not trying to come to America because we are socialists, they have dreams of better lives, of starting their own businesses, and owning their own homes and property. We shouldn't take for granted what we have here, and be grateful that the government doesn't have more control over our lives than it already does.
The media tried to help the democratic party defeat President Bush in the last two elections but failed. They have helped to weaken his presidency by propaganda making him appear a liar concerning the reason we went to battle in Iraq and making people believe he is intellectually inferior to his democratic adversaries, and now they are trying to cripple him with their propaganda by helping give the house and senate to a democratic majority. There are decent democrats in office in Washington, but many who are trying to rise to greater political power seem to have ultra-socialist viewpoints.
so·cial·ism (ssh-lzm) n.
1. Any of various theories or systems of social organization in which the means of producing and distributing goods is owned collectively or by a centralized government that often plans and controls the economy.
2. The stage in Marxist-Leninist theory intermediate between capitalism and communism, in which collective ownership of the economy under the dictatorship of the proletariat has not yet been successfully achieved.
What I'm asking you to do as Christians is to learn about the candidates and what they stand for, pray and ask God for direction in who you should vote for, keep the future of our country in mind when you vote, look for candidates who have Godly principles. Be careful not to vote for candidates who will vote to take away your right to pray or read the bible in public places, who tend to vote for laws that violate the principles of God's Word, or who will nominate justices who more than likely will make decisions that will violate your rights and beliefs as Christians.
Our country has been greatly blessed but if we turn our back on God and treat Him as if He doesn't exist, if we forget how much He loves us, and allow our country to go in a direction contrary to the Word of God then we are in danger of the blessing of God being lifted from our country.
The media has made this election an indictment against the War in Iraq and they bring up every negative thing they can find to air or write about in order to influence the election.
WHY WAS PRESIDENT BUSH ELECTED?
Isaiah 55:9For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
No one thought David would be the King of Israel, not even his own family, but God chose him as King and moved the circumstances to put him on the throne. Who would have thought a man who persecuted Christians, Saul, would be the Apostle Paul who wrote most of the new testament?
People prayed, Satan battled, but President Bush was elected. I believe with all my heart it was ordained by God that he would be elected as our President. Part of a reason may have been to fulfill prophecy about Iraq. Some prophecy scholars believe that Jeremiah 50 and 51 are prophecy about what recently happened in Iraq and what is yet to happen there.
ABOUT THE WAR IN IRAQ
I want to start by saying I hate that some of our young men and women are dying in Iraq, it tears at my heart everytime I hear of one of those deaths, but did President Bush really take us there through deception or was part of the reason he was elected to fulfill prophecy.
9For, lo, I will raise and cause to come up against Babylon (Iraq) an assembly of great nations from the north country (America and it's allies?): and they shall set themselves in array against her; from thence she shall be taken: their arrows (missiles) shall be as of a mighty expert man; none shall return in vain.
43The king of Babylon (Saddam Hussein) hath heard the report of them, and his hands waxed feeble: anguish took hold of him, and pangs as of a woman in travail.
There was credible evidence Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. What happened to them? It is believed they were moved into Syria, and if so they will probably be used during the Tribulation period if not before.
The biggest mistake I think President Bush has made is that horrible Roadmap to Peace and his influence in getting Israel to give up their land.
Joel 3:1,2 For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem,2 I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat (Jehovah will judge), and will plead with (indict) them there for My people and for My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted My land. (My land they have divided.)
President Bush really began to lose popularity when he took part in influencing Israel to give up the Gaza Strip, people may think it was mainly because of Iraq, but it really began to plummet after this debacle in Israel. God Promised to bless those who bless Israel, we are asking for trouble if we don't:
Genesis 12 (King James Version)
King James Version (KJV)
1Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
2And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
3And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
Pray for President Bush that God will give him greater wisdom in his dealings with Israel and that God will influence him in the tremendous decisions he has to make concerning how to lead our country, and that God will give him a congress and senate who will help him get his "God inspired" programs passed.

Ezekiel 11:16-17 (King James Version)
16Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Although I have cast them far off among the heathen, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them as a little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come.
17Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.
Ezekiel 36:24-27 (King James Version)
24For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
11And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.
Statement by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the "World Without Zionism" conference October 26, 2005, published in The New York Times October 30, 2005:
"Our dear Imam said that the occupying regime (Israel) must be wiped off the map and this was a very wise statement."
"The Arab's open declaration of war, which was first uttered against the State of Israel in 1948 and robustly proclaimed to this day is - "We will drive the Jews into the sea." "
WHY ISRAEL MATTERS
by Barbara Ann Zweifler
1Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
2For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
3They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
4They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

2 Timothy 3
1This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
8Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
9But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their's also was.

GUIDE TO THE MIDEAST PEACE PROCESS

"Since its establishment in 1948, the State of Israel has sought peace with its neighbors through direct negotiations. "
The following passage hasn't happened yet, the Antichrist will make a covenant with Israel shortly after the Rapture. It will be a false peace treaty.
Daniel 9:27 (King James Version)
27And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week (seven years): and in the midst of the week (about three and a half years) he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. (The Antichrist breaks the treaty he makes with Israel after about three and a half years.)

God promised David that his descendent would sit on his throne forever:
2 Sam. 7:16
16 And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever.
These scriptures were to be fulfilled by Jesus Christ:
32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
Jesus had a Jewish mother but not a Jewish father, God was His Father, but Mary had to be the one to give birth to Jesus because she was engaged to Joseph, and by the geneological line of descent from King David in Matthew 1, Joseph would be the rightful king of Israel and since Joseph married Mary, Jesus' mother, Jesus became Joseph's legal firstborn son (though not by blood), that meant Jesus would the the rightful heir to the throne, since Jesus had no offspring and rose from the dead, he is the last legal heir to the throne of Israel and will take His rightful place during the Millinium. Luke 3 records Jesus blood line of descent through Mary's ancestors. The line of descent of Kings through Solomon ended with Jeconiah who was cursed so that none of his blood seed would ever sit on the throne of Israel, with Shealtiel it appears the line of kings transferred to Nathan's decendents, Shealtiel and his offspring Zerubbabel, are included in the geneologies in both Matthew and Luke. From sources I read, it is presumed that Jeconiah of Solomon's lineage adopted Shealtiel of Nathan's lineage so that even though his blood seed would never sit on the throne a descendent of David through Nathan would. Supposedly according to some sources Shealtiel was married but died young without children, so his step brother Pedaiah, according to custom, married his widow and bore a child for Shealtiel, Zerubbable. In Luke 3 the line of descent after David was through Nathan, in Matthew 1, after David it started with Solomon, but with the supposed adoption of Shealtiel by Jeconiah, the blood line of the kings was transferred to the descendents of Nathan, that would mean both Joseph and Mary are descendents of David's son, Nathan. After Zerubbabel the geneologies in Matthew 1 and Luke 3 diverge again, and Joseph descends through the royal line of Zerubbabel's offspring Abiud, and Mary descends through Zerubbabel's offspring Rhesa. In Luke 3:23, Joseph is actually the son-in-law of Heli, not his son. Matthew 1 starts Joseph's line with Abraham, Luke 3 starts Mary's line with Adam, Adam and his seed were given dominion of the earth, Jesus has the rightful claim to dominion on this planet because he descends from Adam.
Matthew 1:1-17 Luke 3:23-38
The throne mentioned in Luke 1:32 is not a throne in heaven but a throne on earth in the literal city of Jerusalem. That's why Satan is fighting so hard to possess Jerusalem. Jesus will actually reign on the earth, after His second coming, after He wins the Battle of Armageddon, through the entire Millenial period, after winning the battle of Gog and Megog, and forever.
The earth will never be destroyed entirely, there will always be natural people here though their bodies will be those Adam and Eve had before they fell. It will be renovated to get rid of the dross, so to speak, but God meant for it to last forever. In Revelation 21 it is revealed that the holy city, New Jerusalem will come down to earth, the two will be joined together and that God will dwell among us.
Revelation 19, Revelation 20, Revelation 21, Revelation 22.
