As an Anabaptist, I'm often asked, "Do you think Jesus would vote?" Well, if he would, I don't think he'd tell anyone about it. Maybe he would cast his ballot, but then move on about his Father's business, knowing that participation in the political process is sort of like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. It may allow some folks to make it more swiftly to the lifeboats who don't want to drown, but the ship is going down.
I enjoy that word picture. Not only that, that image of the political process as the Titanic accurately describes the truth of what will occur. This word picture not only portrays this nation, but every nation. One day Jesus Christ will come and set up a new heaven and earth. Every nation will be destroyed. They will have sunk.
Of course, our particular nation of the United States of America appears to be sinking. Our nation is collapsing from within. Our presidential election reflects our decay. Yes, God values each one of these candidates, but he values them much more than they value him. Thus, each candidate has a long list of dirty laundry.
I wonder if David Flowers is ever asked, "Who would Jesus vote for, Trump or Clinton?" I don't know that answer. But David Flowers correctly summarizes that if Jesus would vote, he would cast his ballot and move on to doing his Father's will. The kingdom of God is so much more important, after all, it is eternal and our nation, and any nation, is temporary. In fact, Jesus teaches his followers to pray, "Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven."
Knowing this, I place my hope in God and his kingdom. I have little hope for our nation. Our value system is plummeting to the depths of the Titanic. See, the presidential candidates were chosen by their respective parties to serve as these candidates. These candidates represent the values of their parties, though not all in their parties appreciate the candidates. Yes, our nation has sunk to new depths.
Maybe Jesus would vote in a different way. Maybe he would stand up and say to God the Father, "Let me go and enter the earth a second time."
From my perspective, "Come, Lord Jesus, Come."
