Can You Hear Me Now?

You know, GetAlongWithGod.com is not a political blog on purpose. We just don’t get into politics even though we are all individually affected by our governing bodies. God’s order places authorities and powers over us to rule us. This is just the system that God has set up and under which we live. And though I don’t want to talk about political particulars, it’s rather impossible to not notice our current political climate. Can you hear me now?

God says, “Can You Hear Me Now?”

God says, "Can You Hear Me Now?"
Governments are spiritual, just as they have always been. Look in the Bible. Those who were set in the place of authority were put there by God to communicate His thoughts. When the nation of Israel played the harlot with the world, an oppressive regime took them over. And when they repented and sought the face of God, He placed leaders over them to lead them in righteousness. Back and forth, the ebb and flow of governmental bodies are chosen by God.

A governmental leadership actually reflects the heart of the people as much as the heart of the leader. When the people turned their faces towards God, He set in place rulers to deliver. When they turned away from His Life and commandments, a crushing regime was set in place. “Don’t cry for me Argentina! The truth is I only reflect you. All through your wild days, your mad existence. I am just like you, revealing rebellious distance.” Can you hear me now?

Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God [granted by His permission and sanction], and those which exist have been put in place by God.
Romans 13:1 AMP

God’s thoughts about us are often reflected by those in authority over us. Ooo, that one smarts! I would love to think that my leadership is an island unto themselves, that they are not reflective of me at all. I’d love to think that if the character of my leadership is bad, it has nothing to do with me. But this just isn’t so! My culture determines my leaders. Can you hear me now?

The People say, “Can You Hear Me Now?”

The People say, "Can You Hear Me Now?"
We have a problem in our two political parties. There’s a rift, where the party leaders can’t abide the people’s choice. As I reflect on this, it seems to me that the people have felt as if they were not being heard by their representatives. The decisions and choices that were being made didn’t express the will of the people. Can you hear me now?

This whole thing screams God to me. I know when we individually or nationally refuse to listen to God, He turns up the heat to get our attention. The Vice of Love can crunch the bone. It is amazing how clear our hearing can get when we are in pain. All this deafness is very, very loud. Politicians not listening to their constituents, nations refusing to hear God’s law, individuals living willfully and plugging their ears to His voice. Can you hear Me now?

Wow… how true.

There is a clear example of God’s judgment very close to you that makes me tremble.

Something we are watching right now, Venezuela totally collapsed (a rich country from an economic point of view), where God is crying out… “can you hear me now?” to all those abducted by the past singing of the mermaids (a crushing regime that sacked and destroyed it all, with roots in the occult and witchcraft, BTW), a regime that even changed the Lords’ prayer to have their leader instead of God there (it is not exaggeration, but real stuff, for those of you who understand spanish, though I could only bear to hear first phrase):

The hard test is to be at His side EVEN though He chose that regime to rule us. Daniel’s heart is calling to us.

      Ah… Sandy. I didn’t know you lived in Brazil. Lots of love to you too.

      It is sad… but for them it seemed so funny, enjoyable and normal. Now (sad) they are enjoying their god to the fullest. Maybe I should not laugh… but let’s see if that god saves them or kindles the fire of their absurd altar of sacrifice.

      Love!
