What will happen to the United States as a result of the 2012 election?
On Thursday, September 27, 2012, I was interviewed by host Brian Thomas of Blessings to Israel Ministries on his "God First" program. During the 45-minute interview we discussed how Christians should approach the 2012 election.
Brian Thomas: Nathan, I want you to kind of put on your prophecy hat for a minute here. Depending on the outcome of the 2012 election, where do you see our nation going from there?
Nathan Jones: The election, as vitally important as it is, is really more of a representation of a more fundamental issue, and that's the morality of our nation. This election is a test of where we are at morally. Unfortunately, if we fail this it doesn't matter what candidate gets in. If we continue to slip into the immoral abyss that we have been falling into to so rapidly, we will be just like 2 Chronicles 36:15-17 which reads:
"The Lord the God of their fathers sent word to them again and again by His messengers because He had compassion on His people and on His dwelling place. But they continually mocked the messengers of God, despised His Words and scoffed at His prophets until the wrath of the Lord arose against His people until there was no remedy. Therefore He brought up against them the kings of the Chaldeans who slew their young men with the sword in the house of their sanctuary and had no compassion on young man or virgin, old man or infirmed. He gave them all into his hands."
If we as a nation continue to slip morally out of God's law, then He will have no use for us as an avenue of His grace upon the world. We'll no longer be sending out missionaries, sending out help to the needy, and being a stabilizer with our military throughout the planet. God will take that away from us and we will become a third world nation totally destroyed by infighting, by being taken over by corrupt ideology, and possibly even leading to civil war.
We individually and collectively as a nation have to look at the Bible and see that God wants us to focus on His morality. We as Christians need to be focused on that and helping people to know Jesus as their Savior, because a country will not be really changed by an election. You're ultimately going to change a country by the people in it by the changing of their hearts towards Jesus Christ.
Brian Thomas: Amen, amen!
In the last part of Brian and my interview concerning the Christian's approach to the 2012 election, we'll explain how a Christian should approach this time in history.
