Readers here don’t need me to tell them that the Election of 2016 has been, currently is, and will be unlike any other in the history of the United States of America.
Those following the political candidates closely are all waiting for the next shoe to drop.
(Well…Hillary’s already did while getting into the van! Now don’t get all bent out of shape! It’s a joke…you’re supposed to laugh!)
Today, I feel like a person in the midst of that Stealers Wheel classic song, “Stuck in the Middle With You.” [Youtube Video link]
Ironically, one of the latest comments there says:

‘Clowns to the Left of me, jokers to the Right’. FITS THE CURRENT PRESIDENTIAL RACE!
Regular readers here know that from the very beginning, I wasn’t thrilled with either candidate. I have stated in past posts that I need to be a NEVER HILLARY voter, but Trump disturbs me as well. I have stated that he would be light-years better than Hillary, but that’s just my observational opinion.
This morning, my blog reader list had the two following posts back to back:
True Discernment: Reconsidering My Opposition to Trump [Note: don’t let the title keep you from reading the post! You might be surprised about the ending.]
Oil For Your Lamp: A WARNING TO CHRISTIANS WHO SUPPORT TRUMP!
Can you now see why that “Stuck in the middle with you” song jumped into my mind?
I have blogging friends who have been sounding the alarm about Trump.
I have a blogging friend who deleted my blog from their blog roll list because I’m not enthusiastically supporting Trump.
I have friends who are very pro-Trump, very anti-Trump (and vow to write in a candidate of their chosing), semi-pro Hillary (with the caveat that “at least we know what to expect from her” meme), and, of course the anti-Hillary/NEVER HILLARY ones who know all too well about the Democrat machine of stealing elections, all the years of Clinton corruption, the obviousness of HilLIARy lies, the terrible health problems plaguing her (which they try to hide from the public), and the fact that the horrid billionaire backer Georgevil Soros will do everything sick and sinfully humanly possible to get her elected.
Anyway, I saw a commercial last night during Hannity’s TV show on Fox where Franklin Graham was offering a free copy of Decision magazine’s guide to the 2016 Election.
Copy of message on the page:
This election could be the most important in our nation’s history, and I believe God can use us—His people—to turn the tide. We must pray fervently, stand on His Word, and vote according to Biblical truth.
I’d like to send you a free copy of the special September issue of Decision magazine: our presidential election guide. In this magazine, we examine the major issues facing our nation today, where the candidates stand, and what God’s Word says. Explore the candidates’ stances on the Supreme Court, religious liberty, and abortion, plus the party platforms on marriage, terrorism, and more.
I hope you will request your copy of Decision today—then pray and cast your ballot on Election Day. May God bless America!
I signed up to get a copy today and the message I got was “allow 4-6 weeks for delivery” which means I may get it as late as November 2nd! If you want a copy, I suggest going to that link and ordering it now!
During my search for the Decision magazine link, I ran across an older article at The Political Insider claiming that Franklin Graham is supporting Donald Trump.
Comments there are varied. Some are stating that it is right for Graham to support Trump because of his positive stand on Israel. After all, Scripture tells us:
Now the LORD had said to Abram:
“Get out of your country,
From your family
And from your father’s house,
To a land that I will show you.
I will make you a great nation;
I will bless you
And make your name great;
And you shall be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
So…on that one very important issue, Franklin Graham got it right! As Christians, we are to bless Israel.
We know that the current inhabitant in the White House and his Badministration didn’t bless Israel! In fact, he and his Muslim Brotherhood sycophants showed attitudes of cursing Israel! 0bama only pretended to be a Christian during the election of 2008, yet God allowed the people of our nation to naively vote for him. In hindsight, we see what a liar Hussein has been for 8 long and dreadful years. Recall how the people “clamored for a political ‘messiah’,” and ended up voting for BHO – the worst pResident in history!
Christians might ask, “where was God in all of this?”
Answer: He was teaching us a hard lesson. What we need now is repentance!
We had another chance to change course in 2012. But the people were still too blind to see that the “change” 0bama professed for America was more like chains of socialism and dependency. Less people voted for BHO (plus there was much evidence of vote fraud), but apparently, too many people wanted their free “gimmies” and didn’t care about jobs, the economy, the Supreme Court selections and judges around the country; or the terrible errors in the war against radical Islamic terrorism, (etc…name the poison) to change course just yet.
Today, it’s a totally different story! Millions more people have been awakened and now know that they were hoodwinked and don’t want four more years of 0bama’s dreadful policies via HilLIARy Clinton!
So…what is the call of God for Christian voters? For me, the answer is in these Bible verses:
“if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
“Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place.
