Victory Update - Close Call

Contributor: Scott Allswang
 
Anyone that lives here in the United States has heard about the presidential election today for a LONG TIME.  

Broadcasts on TV, radio, social media and newspapers are consumed 24/7 by the race.  Boldly blasting it all the time.  They just have to tell us every little detail.  Back and forth the polls have shown that this race is “TOO CLOSE TO CALL” or is “TIED” or might require a “RECOUNT”.  
 
Eventually, one candidate will MAKE IT.  And he will have the authority to sit in the office that leads this country.
 
What a huge responsibility.  What an honor.  What an amazing platform to be on, to have the title that unlocks doors of opportunity here and across the world.  To be an ambassador for freedom, justice and liberty.  To humbly serve the people.

Jesus and Satan have been engaged in a battle for a LONG TIME too.
It started in the Garden of Eden.
 
I’m not too sure that everyone living here in the United States has heard about that.

Forgive us God that we Christians are not consumed 24/7 with your transformational truth.  So much so that we just have to tell others the good news.  Every little detail of it.

Forgive us God that we Christians are afraid to boldly blast truth and love on secular TV, radio, social media and newspapers.  Because when a Christian does, they get “beat up” and hated.

Forgive us God that we forgot that when You were here, You were right in the middle of the political and religious powers teaching and preaching truth.

And that you got beat up and spit on and were dragged to your death.

Jesus final earthly battle with Satan was finished on the cross.
Jesus didn’t “TIE” Satan.  Jesus didn’t just MAKE IT.  He stomped on Satan’s neck.
 
Jesus defeated death.  Once and for ALL.  Overcame impossible odds.
Life over death.  Ultimate obvious victory.
 
His death and resurrection were not “TOO CLOSE TO CALL”.
 
His death and resurrection didn’t require a “RECOUNT”.

His authority sits over the office of every elected official.  Not just here.  But in every place throughout the world.  He is sovereign and in control of ALL things. Eph 1:22


And if You know Jesus as Savior and Lord, then You have His authority in Your life.  You were elected when HE called Your name.  Making You a representative of the Almighty God.
 
What a huge responsibility.
 
What an honor.
 
What an amazing platform to be on.
 
To by His power be able to unlock doors of opportunity here and across the world.  To be His ambassador for true freedom in Jesus, His justice and His liberty.  To humbly serve the people.

You are on the winning team.

The enemy IS NOTRev 17:8

PRAY FOR: To God be the Glory, Great things HE has done through this campaign.
