16 DOP: VICTORY OVER VOTER FRAUD DAY 16
VICTORY OVER VOTER FRAUD
16 DAYS OF PRAYER DAY 16
Written By Pastor Michael Heil
“So we may boldly say:
The Lord is my helper;
I will not fear.
What can man do to me?”
I’ve wondered at the phrase that is often mentioned, “victim less crime.” Some say using drugs is a victim less crime that is not hurting anyone but the person doing it or breaking the speed limit is a victim less crime which only impacts the driver. Even if that were true (which it is not), any crime is breaking the law of man, which by extension is breaking the law of God (Roman 13:1-8). Voter fraud is another crime which some people label as victim less crime, but that has no relation to the truth. However, voter fraud tramples on the rights of others. Voter fraud is a deliberate manipulation and distortion of state and federal law. Voter fraud is a selfish exercise of power over people. Yet, in every election, like clockwork, one party or both parties engage in voter fraud.
Where is God when this happens? Why does He allow this to continue? Isn’t He concerned about justice in America? The simplistic answer is God is still there and He is still in control. However, as it true with many areas of life, our finite mind with its finite thoughts forms finite answers! God is infinite, “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent.” (Numbers 23:19). God is doing what He can do to hinder and stop voter fraud, but apart from infringing upon man’s free will, He is limited to working incognito. Now before you condemn me to the lower regions of hell for making a statement like that, please meditate on the scriptures. Did not God say in Deuteronomy 30:19 “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life.” And, wasn’t it God who told Adam, “the Lord God commanded the man, saying, 'Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat,'” in Genesis 2:16? God, by His own choice, has limited His omnipotence; unless He directly performs a miracle, stepping powerfully and supernaturally into history, God works through areas that do not hinder man’s will. So, although a postal worker might throw ballots in a dumpster to destroy them, God allows a person on the street to see it. That person, by their own choice, reports it to authorities and that incident of voter fraud is stifled; or because of knowledge of voter fraud gained from previous elections, God stirs up the government to create laws stopping further fraud (though God stirs our hearts, we still must choose to follow).
God is doing this all the time; recent news reports confirm this. “Former congressman indicted on voter fraud, bribery charges”, Politico, July 23, 2020; “In just one month, 15 cases of ballot errors, theft, harvesting, and dumping”, Washington Examiner, October 18, 2020; “Feds: Trump votes discarded in Luzerne County”, Citizens Voice, September 25, 2020. We can read in these articles what happened in the natural realm, but what the article does not reveal is what happened in the spiritual realm. This is one way God is bringing His victory over voter fraud, and this is one way God is administering justice on the earth. God is not wringing His hands in heaven, doing nothing to stop voter fraud. He is stirring up hearts of righteous men and women to confront voter fraud; He is allowing people to be in the right place at the right time.
Still there is another truth about God, a truth that dwarfs all time and all history; a truth before all voter fraud and all feeble attempts by President, Senators, and Congressmen must quake. God’s plan for America will happen! God reveals in His word, Isaiah 43:13 "For the LORD of hosts has planned, and who can frustrate it? And as for His stretched-out hand, who can turn it back?" He also tells us in Isaiah 14:27 "Even from eternity I am He, And there is none who can deliver out of My hand; I act and who can reverse it?" What does this mean? How does this relate to voter fraud? It means God will put the people in office for His purpose, despite voter fraud. Voter fraud can no more affect God’s will and God’s decree than a person commanding darkness to fall on the sun. That does not make voter fraud moral or correct, it just renders it useless. So, Brothers and Sisters, Saints of our Living Lord, we must in the natural confront and expose voter fraud. We must do all we can to manifest God’s righteousness on earth. We must be about the Kingdom of God. However, on the spiritual level, we rest in Gods victory. Voter fraud will not hinder or stop God’s relentless revelation of His kingdom; voter fraud will not stop God from establishing His king, even Jesus, on the earth. In this, we rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory!
PRAYER: Father God, you are the righteous One, and Your plans and Your purpose will happen, on earth as it is in heaven. We thank you for Your hand moving to expose the evil vice of voter fraud, and we rest in the truth that this election will accomplish exactly what You have planned for it. In Jesus name, Amen.
