Woe to those who trust in Egypt

It is written:
No man that warreth ENTANGLETH HIMSELF WITH THE AFFAIRS OF THIS LIFE; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.  2 Timothy 2:4

It is written:
Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the LORD!  Isaiah 31:1

What can we liken Egypt to, as in this context?

Those who are in charge of the worlds differing governing forces.
Also the military might and power of those same forces.

As the children of God we are not to put our trust in those who govern us, but we are to put our trust in God who has power over all.

As it is written:
This matter is by the decree of the watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones: to the intent that the living may know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will, and setteth up over it the basest of men. Daniel 4:17

Let us look how the Lord elaborates on Egypt and all its power..

As it is written:
Now the Egyptians are men, and not God; and their horses flesh, and not spirit. When the LORD shall stretch out his hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that is holpen (helped) shall fall down, and they all shall fail together.  Isaiah 31:3

And that saints is what befalls those who place their trust in man and not in God, and who do not seek the Lord for His will, nor His help.

When God tells His people to come out of the world, they always have such a hard time it seems. Yet He has set us examples of those who did not heed His warnings.

Lot’s wife turned back when leaving Sodom before it’s destruction, pining for, and missing that great city and its prosperity, in spite of the great sin and Godlessness there.

As it is written:
And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.

But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.
Genesis 19:17+26

There were those who murmured and complained in the wilderness wanting to return to Egypt thinking themselves to have been better off there in the prosperity and security of Egypt.

As it is written:
And all the congregation lifted up their voice, and cried; and the people wept that night.

And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, Would God that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would God we had died in this wilderness!

And wherefore hath the LORD brought us unto this land, to fall by the sword, that our wives and our children should be a prey? were it not better for us to return into Egypt?

And they said one to another, Let us make a captain, and let us return into Egypt.
Numbers 14:1-4

Therefore this is what God spoke to the people ....

As it is written:
And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me.

Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you:

Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against me,
Numbers 14:26-29

The only place I see where God is giving instruction to his people, in choosing a leader for themselves is the following.

As it is written:
When thou art come unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that are about me;

Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.

But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses: forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no more that way.

Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold.

And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites:

And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them:
That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel. Deuteronomy 17:14-20

So the Israelites were not to put someone who was not a brother in the position of power, someone who did not honor nor follow God and His laws. Nor a person who was greedy for filthy lucre/Mammon. Nor someone who believes themselves to be above their brethren.

Well that rules out most of the leaders America and the church have chosen for themselves!

So how is it that American Christians are falling all over themselves to vote for either of the choices they have being given here in the year 2016.

America has a government who has robbed and exploited the people to enrich themselves. The government officials live like kings while the people work hard to make a living for themselves. The government has squandered countless billions of the peoples dollars.

The government has cast God out of society, our president has stated publicly that America is not a Christian Nation. They have proved that by the evil wicked laws they have been passing, and justifying sin against God.

God has said enough!

I have been wondering just how much of their integrity, morals, and faith people are willing to set aside to get the leader they want.

How much are people going to be willing to compromise to make America Great again.

Satan and his demons are in stitches over the choice the Christians have been brought to make, in this election. Make no mistake this is no coincidence, this is by God’s design.

They and HE are watching and waiting to see how low Christians will go, to hang on to this world and all its goods, just how much they are willing to compromise of everything they are supposed to stand for.

Satan and his demons know that no matter who wins this election, the Christians who go down to Egypt for their help, are going to perish.

Remember he who seeks to save his life shall loose it, but he who is willing to lay down his life for the sake of THE TRUTH, shall receive life eternal.

Christians are going to have many decisions to make in the not to distant future. The decisions you make now, and what motivates you, will determine if you will willingly come under the reign of the Anti-Christ himself.

Ask yourself, does this following scripture still stand true...

As it is written:
And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: Daniel 2:21

When things get really hard, and the choice is eat or not eat, work or not work, suffer or not suffer, what will you choose?

The choice saints is yours, choose prayerfully.
