But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; and base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: that no flesh should glory in His presence. -- 1 Cor 1:27, 28
To the Jews the cross was offensive, unproductive, and illogical. That the King of kings should submit to it was foolishness itself. Yet, without the cross there would be no salvation.
People tell me I'm illogical. That my logic isn't logic. And, you know what? They're right. They're absolutely right, because I don't reason with the reason of man.
It is completely illogical to choose a third party candidate -- by man's reasoning. It is. However, it is perfectly logical by God's reasoning. Since I work for God, I must take the stance that He requires of me. Illogical or not it is the stand I must take.
It comes down to whom do you fear and whom do you trust. I trust in Him. That is: I abandon all conventional reason for Him. I fear Him. I will get into the furnace. I will go into the lion's den. I will run at Goliath with everything I am. I will do these things because He is so awesomely deserving, and I am just His servant -- meaning His will supersedes mine every time.
So, when you accuse me of being substantially unreasonable according to the logic of man, I must agree with you. I am unreasonably trusting of Him -- by man's standards I absolutely am. However, He is Who He is -- deserving of such unreserved loyalty and abandonment of self.
My heart weeps for those who do not get this. God's supremacy is not in question. It is not deniable. It cannot be subverted. It cannot be altered. It cannot be defeated. He is the Supreme. Therefore, abandoning ourselves to Him is actually the only truly logical choice.

Where is Your Faith?

Let all the earth fear the LORD. Let ALL the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
For He spake, and it was done. He commanded and it stood fast.

The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought. He maketh the devices of the people of none effect.
The counsel of the LORD standeth FOREVER, the thoughts of His heart to ALL generations.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom He hath chosen for His own inheritance. -- Psa 33:8-12

There is NO king saved by the multitude of an host. A mighty man is NOT delivered by much strength.
An horse is a van thing for safety. Neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.
BEHOLD, the eye of the LORD is upon them that FEAR Him, upon them that hope in HIs mercy; to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.  -- Psa 33:16-18

Just as the Psalmist called the people to trust in God -- stating clearly that NUMBERS do not necessary equate to strength nor power to a win -- I CHALLENGE all those who claim to believe in God to put their faith into action. That is I call you to vote as you know God would have you vote -- not for a lesser evil, because God does NOT approve of evil. He does NOT partner with it in any form or fashion. But rather, I call you to vote for a candidate God would actually approve of -- a man after God's heart such as Tom Hoefling.
Look at this Psalm carefully. Strength is not in conventional wisdom. No. True strength is wielded by God alone. He is the One who sets up the powerful. If we are obedient to HIm, He gives us good rulers. When we are disobedient, He lets us have wicked ones.
Look at the two primary candidates. Are they not both exceedingly wicked? Do you really think that an accident? No, this is God letting us know He's through putting up with our sin. This is God giving us one last chance to choose wisely.
A vote for either primary candidate is still a vote to KEEP the very SIN that has brought us to this precipice. Neither will end abortion. Neither is going to return us to a godly nation. And neither even comprehends what "disrespecting the cross" even is.
We need to stop voting like Goliath was too big, the lions too deadly, and the furnace too hot for God to handle. HE IS ABLE. The only question is do we have the FAITH required for this situation? Or is our faith in word alone, being empty and useless?

Take Up My Cause, Lord!

Plead my cause, O LORD, with them that strive with me. Fight against them that fight against me.
Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.
Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me. Say unto my soul, I am thy salvation.
Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul. Let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.
Let them be as chaff before the wind, and let the angel of the LORD chase them.
Let their way be dark and slippery, and let the angel of the LORD persecute them.
For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have digged for my soul.
Let destruction come upon him at unawares, and let his net that he has hid catch himself -- into that very pit let him fall.
And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD. It shall rejoice in His salvation.
All my bones shall say, "LORD, who is like thee, which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him -- yea, the poor and needy from him that spoileth him? -- Psa 35:1-10
The Christian in this nation is under serious attack from the seriously wealthy and powerful. They hate us. They have set a net for our feet. Yet, some of us are God's own. Therefore, let us cry out unto God to "take up our cause". He is listening, and they, too, can be undone just as David's enemies were.
