The Two Wings

By Francis Frangipane

As American elections close, many Christians have felt discouragement with the outcome.  Yet, let me remind you that, even in what seems like loss, God continues to work all things for good.  Yes, we've been praying for our nation, desiring to see the country return to a moral, God-fearing culture.  Yet, I hope we all know that the kingdom of God is not limited to a political party!

What encourages me is that among those Democrats who won Republican seats, most were either moderate or very conservative in their moral outlook; they were not liberals.  In other words, the Democratic party, which for years seemed to resist any advance toward traditional moral values,  picked conservative Democrats to run against Republican conservatives.  Indeed, in a number of contests, pro-life Democrats ran against pro-life Republicans. 

Authority Over the Nations

"Joram king of Israel and Ahaziah king of Judah went out, each in his chariot, and they went out to meet Jehu and found him in the property of Naboth the Jezreelite. When Joram saw Jehu, he said, 'Is it peace, Jehu?' And he answered, 'What peace, so long as the harlotries of your mother Jezebel and her witchcrafts are so many?'" (2 Kings 9:21-22).

There is a war going on. It involves the future of our nation.  In this war, even Christian leaders are occasionally isolated, deceived, and then trapped by the enemy in sin.  I know some may be weary of hearing about the spirit of Jezebel; they just want peace.  But what peace can there be in our land so long as the harlotries of Jezebel and her witchcrafts are so many?
