On Thursday March 5th, in the state of Washington happened the unspeakable. Several liberal people went against the wishes of the state citizens.The State House of Representatives voted in favor of a bill that would lead to sexual demoralization of even young residents. They voted sex education in elementary grades starting at kindergarten. These classes will create perfect environment for pedophiles to prey on safety of the minors.
These news lead me to encourage Christians not to be frivolous about what is happening in the city, state and country where everyone lives. It is our duty before God to ensure that the morality of the people is not corrupted by several residents (people who were able to get into those positions in which their voices can affect the welfare and morality of the people for many years.) First of all, we must pray as the Lord commands through the apostle Paul (1 Tim. 2: 1-4). It is also necessary to vote, write, call, etc., in order to prevent laws that entail harm to the population.
It is written: “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden” (Matt. 5:13-14, NKJV). Our presence on earth gives light and salt to the earth. The enemy of this world blinds people and they are not able to rationalize their actions.
It is also written: “Deliver those who are drawn toward death, And hold back those stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, “Surely we did not know this,” Does not He who weighs the hearts consider it? He who keeps your soul, does He not know it? And will He not render to each man according to his deeds?” (Pr. 24:11-12, NKJV) We can save many from being killed by influencing political laws with prayers and actions.
Tip: Create intercession groups in your churches, and also pray yourself daily for the welfare of your cities, states, and countries. If you do not like what is happening around you, time to kneel. Also, do not wait for disaster to come to your area, protect your cities and countries beforehand. «Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (I Tim. 2:1-4, NKJV).
Note: If the Senate of Washington accepts this bill, then local Christians will have to take a three-day prayer and fasting to repeal this law. Referendum may be next step as well. Where people are at loss, God can intervene through humility, prayer and fasting: “Therefore we have been comforted in your comfort. And we rejoiced exceedingly more for the joy of Titus, because his spirit has been refreshed by you all. For if in anything I have boasted to him about you, I am not ashamed. But as we spoke all things to you in truth, even so our boasting to Titus was found true” (II Corinthians 7:13-14, NKJV).
Note: Difficult circumstances are also found in terms of promoting lawless bills in the states: NY, VA, MA, CA. Pray that this will not happen.
