I’m mourn for my country right now. If I were a Protestant I would declare that this is a clear sign that we are living in the last days. This is the turning point people. This was the election that we will be able to look back on and remember when it all began. People went to the polls and some voted for their best interest; that is, they voted for where their treasure is. Some voted for their job; their bank account; their reproductive liberties; their conscience; their race; their anger; their religion; their family, and etc. “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Mt. 6:21). This morning we have learned that most Americans do not treasure the teachings of Christ Jesus or their religious liberty.
God Help Us! If I didn’t trust Jesus I’d be trembling in my soul right now for what is about to befall this country. It’s daylight outside, but it’s dark. You can sense it in your spirit. The song ‘God Bless America’ is only a prayer and history now. For a blessing is something you choose to receive – a freewill cooperation with the grace of God. On November 6, 2012, American chose the curse. It chose Satan over God.
What remains for those of who are In Christ to do is stay vigilant in the fight. Persevere to the end. Pray, Fast, Enduring Long Suffering. Embrace both corporeal and spiritual martyrdom. The hour that we heard about it here today. The hour that is now God always knew about and is working through to bring about His Glory. We trust in that fact that He always conforms our bad free choices to bring about His good. We will preserve. We will triumph. We will win in the end.
God Help us. Blessings and Shalom.
If you choose you can keep the commandments; it is loyalty to do his will.
There are set before you fire and water; to whichever you choose, stretch forth your hand. Before man are life and death, whichever he chooses shall be given him. Sirach 15:14-17

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -
by the Divine Power of God -
cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
