I have felt inspired to write to you of what is on my mind and heart. I’ve decided to publish “Avalanche Lily’s Morning Dew” as a column that will intermittently appear in SurvivalBlog whenever the inspiration strikes. It is my hope that my thoughts enlighten you and exhort you to draw closer to our Lord in these Last Days!
I recently read an interesting essay by Rachael Dawson that was titled: Should You Vote for the Lesser of Two Evils? That piece articulates some of the same thoughts I’ve had during the past twelve years. I’ve often pondered whether I should vote for the man who is the lesser of two evils. The key point is this: Should I abstain, or should I “write-in” my preferred candidate? Frankly, the past three election cycles have left me feeling disenfranchised–especially so, in the current presidential campaign.
My fellow countrymen have not offered a candidate that I would want to have as my President over these Great States. I cannot bring myself to vote for Trump, since he is promoting far right corporatist statist rhetoric, which is nearly as bad as Clinton’s far left quasi-communistic statist rhetoric. Mark my words: Either of them would be dictatorial and would ignore Constitutional constraints and the Rule of Law, using their executive powers to do whatever they wish. Meanwhile, Ted Cruz is a member of the establishment and a Republican Party “tool”. If he were elected I believe that he wouldn’t have enough backbone to stand up to (and will inevitably capitulate to) his presidential (One World Order) handlers, in anything they wish. I cannot in good conscience vote for the lesser of two evils. I cannot face my Lord and Savior knowing that I voted for someone (like both Trump and Clinton) who are openly immoral, promote abortion, and the other aberration of God’s divine order. Neither of them will honor our Constitution, specifically the Bill of Rights. Neither of them support Israel’s right to defend herself as a sovereign nation. Neither of them will truly honor the Lord our God, the Creator of the Universe, and His statutes. Observing the lack of righteous candidates, we know we are under the Judgment of our Lord God. Coincidentally, after seeing Rachael Dawson’s article this morning, our family, during our family devotion read this scripture:
“Awake, awake, stand up, O Jerusalem, which hast drunk at the hand of the LORD the cup of his fury; thou hast drunken the dregs of the cup of trembling, and wrung them out. There is none to guide her among all the sons whom she hath brought forth; neither is there any that taketh her by the hand of all the sons that she hath brought up. These two things are come unto thee; who shall be sorry for thee? desolation, and destruction, and the famine, and the sword: by whom shall I comfort thee?” – Isaiah 51:17-19 (KJV – Emphasis added)
Here, I must mention that I do not believe in the spurious doctrine of Replacement Theology, which asserts that America or the modern church in Western Nations have somehow become the “New Israel”. In scripture, Israel is Israel. Neither America nor the modern Church has replaced the nation of Israel. However, history does repeat or at least rhyme. Scripture can be applied to other nations for our learning and understanding.
Please read both Rachael Dawson’s essay and the comments that follow, which are insightful. Diligently ponder and pray about your role in the next election. My heart is heavy about this, and the prospects are sickening.
We need to be ever-repentant. We need to be deep in God’s Word and prepared to meet our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ From Nazareth. Jim and I believe and hope that, although our nation is now under judgment, God will have mercy on the families that belong to Him in the days that are coming. That is our fervent prayer! – Avalanche Lily
