I ran across this quote this morning from Dr. David R. Reagan of Lamb & Lion Ministries. It is from part one of his six-part series on America’s Spiritual Crisis. It is but one expression in a message from God with many voices these days, and one prophetic word we need to take seriously. How does the Lord want us to respond to the forceful rejection of God and His Truth in our society? This first quote is one I have been teaching to those under my responsibility since the late 1970s. It goes to the core of the problem.
First, I am neither a Republican or a Democrat. I am a Monarchist. And I say that because I have devoted my life to doing everything possible to prepare the way for the coming of the King of kings and the Lord of lords. He’s going to reign with a rod of iron from Mt. Zion in Jerusalem. He’s going to bring righteousness, and justice and peace to this earth, and I can hardly wait.
Here’s the way social commentator, Todd Starnes, recently put it in one of his books: “We don’t need more Americans bowing down to the Democrat donkey or the Republican elephant. We need more Americans bowing down to the Lion of Judah.”
It is good to see others in the church with this attitude. I’ve been saying this for several decades now. I’m a proud monarchist, serving my King.
We don’t need more conservatives or liberals, we need more dedicated followers of Jesus, the Messiah
Dr. Reagan continued with the following paragraphs in his letter to the readers of his blog:
And that thought brings me to my second disclaimer. I do not believe that either the Democrats or the Republicans are the hope of America. Rather, I believe that Jesus is our only hope. And, because I believe Jesus is our only hope, I therefore believe we have little hope because we have turned our backs on God.
This point was illustrated after the horrible Connecticut school shooting when someone designed a t-shirt which says: “Dear, God, why do you allow so much violence in our schools? Signed, a Concerned Student. Dear, Concerned Student, I’m not allowed in schools. Signed, God.” That pretty well sums it up.
Our only hope is national repentance
Of course, this requires a leader who will call for that. We need to be on our knees praying “Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven”. Jesus is our only hope. Without His help, America is swiftly sliding down the tubes with no return in sight. Is there hope? Of course! In Jesus there is always hope. The question is whether the hope is for individual saints, small outposts of the church, or our society.
Seek the Lord while He may be found!
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
