A More Christ-like America

I do not have a word from the Lord concerning the next President of the United States. But, I do think that He has been preparing me to perceive who it will be, based on what the Holy Spirit has been teaching me.

I have been studying the Atonement of Jesus for months. It’s incredibly deep and very controversial. What actually was accomplished by Jesus’ blood on the Mercy Seat? How does it apply to mankind; believers and unbelievers?

Lately, I have been focusing on God’s mercy and the victory of Peace over violence via the Cross. The Bethel song “Mercy” has been profoundly powerful in this season of life. If you have not heard it, click the link above!

We are called to be “Peace-Makers” and “agents of reconciliation”. However, for too long, the church has forsaken the way of loving mercy for the path of power and control. For over 1600 years actually.

It’s time for Peace, mercy and love to return more purely to the Church! God spoke of the wisdom of the world as foolish! But, His Wisdom is pure, peaceful…and merciful! (James 3:17)

It’s because of this recent focus of the Holy Spirit’s concerning peace and mercy that I believe Donald Trump will be our next President. He currently embodies the opposite of both. He does not currently make peace and is far from merciful. No, I did not vote for him but, have been praying for him and the other candidates for months.

As the Body of Christ, we are called to be the peace-makers in America; not our President. I believe the Lord is teaching us these attributes because he knows that we need to embody them now if America is actually going to shine like a City on the Mount.

We need to continue to pray for the fear of the Lord and wisdom for our President. Pray for God’s mercy and peace to penetrate our leader’s hearts.

Above all ~ Trust the Lord and not mankind.
