The Power of Unity – Vic Election and the Christian values based parties / Church leaders refuse to speak out – Will we pay the price?16 Comments Published by Office 2 December 4th, 2014 in A Call To Action, Abortion, Australia, Bible, Children, Christian Church Issues, Christian Persecution, Courage, Education, End-Times, Facebook, Family, Free Speech, Freedom of Religion, Gospel, Government, Islam, Jesus, Multiculturalism, Political Correctness, Politics, Rise Up Australia, Social Justice, West
First let me take this opportunity to thank everyone who voted, supported and prayed for us. This was the first State Election that Rise Up Australia Party contested (although we contested the Federal Election last year) and I must say that we learned a lot.
Something very significant happened in this election in Victoria. The Christian values based parties worked together as a block in sharing first preferences with each other and the results were very good.
In most regions with the strategic preferences, we came very close to winning Upper House seats, and it seems that at least one Upper House seat will now be secured, with three more seats currently in question. (Some 90% of the upper house votes are yet to be re-checked).
This clearly shows the power of unity as Jesus said, where He prays for all believers in John 17:20-23.
“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— 23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me”.
On another note, although some church leaders I know of spoke out regarding the election, once again many church leaders refused to speak out and tell the people how to vote.
Their excuse was that they did not want to rock the boat as it was considered politically incorrect to do so.
One church leader said the following on the weekend of the election to his congregation. “Did you vote?? Oh, it does not really matter how you vote, for God is in control.” This is the typical cop-out method used by many church leaders who do not have the courage to tell the congregation the truth and because they fear that people might leave the church.
So, we have just elected an ALP & Greens Government in Victoria, who according to my understanding, have promised the Christian church leaders that they will do everything in their power to help them become immoral, un-Godly and to compromise the word of God. Consequently, the next four years could see some of the worst laws passed in Victoria.
One such law could be Christian schools and churches having to recruit non-Christians, including homosexuals on staff.
This is just one of the many immoral laws that Labor and Greens will try to pass in Parliament.
Get ready Church! Are the court rooms waiting for us?? Is it possible that end time scriptures such as Luke 21:12 will be fulfilled in our time??
“But before all this, they will seize you and persecute you. They will hand you over to synagogues and put you in prison, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name.”
Frankly, if you live in Victoria, and if your Christian Pastor / Priest / Leader did not sound a clear voice as to whom to vote for, then you must ask yourself the question, “Why did they not do so??”
Sadly, Labor & Greens will usher in four very dark years for Victoria, but praise God all is not lost. Remember, when it is very dark a little bit of light will shine very bright. You could be that light, so let your light shine as you stand together with us to see Australia come back to Jesus.
