This is a wonderful post on the Love of God! Let us give Him our hearts and obey Him so that things will go well for us!
TheLordis merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever. He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. (Psalm 103:7-10)
Our God is love. He doesn’t merely have love, He is Love. To resist the LORD is to resist Love, and goodness and truth.
Throughout the sacred scriptures God has revealed his heart of love to mankind, and the greatest revelation of Divine Love of all, is the cross of Jesus Christ. In that singular act of God, all access to the LOVE of God is given.
There are several scriptures that run through my mind as I write this article. My paltry words could never truly do justice to the subject I wrote of, but we are called to bear witness to the truth, and the Love…

From the Holy Bible:
ARISE, SHINE; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.
For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and the glory shall be seen upon thee. (Isaiah 60:1-2)
And no marvel: for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.’ (2 Cor. 11:14)
JESUS IS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. (John 8:12)
FROM JOE BIDEN’S SPEECH- COMMENTS ON LIGHT AND DARKNESS
Joe Biden in his acceptance speech at the Democratic Convention for their nomination of his bid of president of the United States of America, mentioned the word ‘Light’ 9 times, and ‘Darkness‘ 5 times.
Below are some interesting notes from the transcript of his acceptance speech about light and darkness. His speech for the Democratic Convention IMO was a poetic, glowing rhetoric. And it was interspersed with criticism of the present president and administration and promises for a better future, as these speeches usually go.
The prophet Isaiah states in chapter 60:1-2 that the LORD Jesus is the Light to come and darkness speaks of judgments coming to the earth and the great sins of the people.
Now compare excerpts from Joe Biden’s comments:
‘Quote from ‘Ella Baker, giant of the civil rights movement, left us with this wisdom: Give people light and they will find a way.
‘Give people light. Those are words for our time.
‘The current president has cloaked America in darkness for much too long. Too much anger. Too much fear. Too much division.
‘Here and now, I give you my word: If you entrust me with the presidency, I will draw on the best of us not the worst. I will be an ally of the light not of the darkness.
‘It’s time for us, for We the People, to come together.
‘For make no mistake, United we can, and will, overcome this season of darkness in America. We will choose hope over fear, facts over fiction, fairness over privilege.
‘It’s a moment that calls for hope and light and love. Hope for our futures, light to see our way forward, and love for one another.
‘We’ve found the light. . . we can find the light once more.
‘Light is more powerful than dark.
‘May history be able to say that the end of this chapter of American darkness began here tonight as love and hope and light joined in the battle for the soul of the nation’.
Please take note that in Biden’s acceptance speech there was no mention of imploring God for help, mercy, and direction in restoring unity, peace and prosperity in our Nation. After all, we are now in desperate and grave straits. Neither Biden nor Trump can restore order and peace to our broken nation without acknowledging that God is Sovereign over all the earth and all mankind. It is God we need, not hope in man’s light, but hope in God’s Light, in Jesus Christ, who is the Light of the World.
The earth is filled with corruption and violence and the people are in rebellion against God and against His Word. Our adversary, Satan, has motivated some people to do his dastardly work, ‘to steal, kill, and destroy’ (John 10;10). Satan has corrupted our leaders and others to do what is right in their own eyes. Satan has made evil, good and good, evil. Except we humble ourselves and seek God’s help as a broken people, there will be no hope for unity and peace, prosperity and happiness in America! No matter who our next president will be, unless America turns to the Lord Jesus Christ and repents of our sins, there will be no recovery from the present pandemic and economic collapse.
Man has proven his inability to govern himself and have order in society so that neither the question of credibility nor capability will affect the ultimate outcome of the election and fate of America.
We will be divided as a kingdom/nation as Solomon’s was and will continue on the road to destruction with corruption and violence (Genesis 6:11-12) and idolatry and perversion. The wise, but foolish King Solomon did not take heed to God’s warnings and His Word to him, and his glorious kingdom was destroyed.
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)
But Solomon and his people did not repent, Solomon’s kingdom was divided into two, and so shall America be destroyed, unless we repent!
Jesus said ‘. . .except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish’ (Luke 13:3,5). So light from our politicians will never recover America from the demise our country is heading for. Only Jesus, the Light of the World, the true Light of men (John1:4) can save America!
