  The Devil's Device: Voting for the "Lesser of the Evils"

Voting and how it Affects your Ability to Withstand in the Evil Day

Voting is a serious matter. It can be likened to bidding God speed to a candidate. Trying to get a candidate elected is an active choice to partake of his or her deeds. It is like saying, "God bless you. I endorse your agenda."

If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. (2 John 1:10,11)

Because God commands his people to not give place to Satan, it is crucially important to vote for an individual only if you are certain that by doing so you are not helping to further Satan's purposes in this world:

". . . Neither give place to the devil." (Eph. 4:27)

As a Christian, you cannot overcome the world, the flesh and the devil if you give place or opportunity to the devil.

To vote for a puppet of the New World Order controllers is to vote for the devil to have authority over you. 

Christians who like to think positively about their spiritual compromise tend to quote the following verse:

No weapon formed against thee shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. (Isa. 54:17)

Let us look at this for a moment: "No weapon formed against thee shall prosper . . . "  What if you choose to vote for the weapon (political candidate) who is formed to do what is against you? Will the "no weapon formed against thee shall prosper" be in effect then? No, because you have chosen to help prosper the weapon that is formed against you the leader who serves the devil's purposes.

The seventy who were appointed by the Lord Jesus Christ were given all power over the enemy. You can be sure they would not be able to do this if they were in league with the devil through compromise:

Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:19

Will the modern-day disciples of Jesus Christ have power through prayer over the destructive spiritual devices of the enemy if we ignorantly vote for his agents?

"For we are not ignorant of his [Satan's] devices." 2 Cor. 2:11

You are not resisting the devil if you vote for one of the devil's New World Order change agents.

"...Resist the devil, and he will flee from you."

As Christians, our battle is not against flesh and blood (political parties) "but against spiritual wickedness."

"For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal..." 2 Cor. 10:3-5

Children of the light will not be able to pray against and successfully counter Satan's destructive plans if we bid God speed (vote for) one or more of his followers to have authority over us. One must not cast his vote for the human agents whose purpose for being in office is to fulfill the goals of the rulers of the darkness of this world:

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Eph. 6:12)

Voting for one of Satan's representatives so that he can rule over us is a form of giving place to the devil: 

"Neither give place to the devil." Eph. 4:27

We cannot stand against the political and spiritual wiles of the devil if we vote one of his followers to rule over us:

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Eph. 6:11


Satan's Work in the Earth Via His Elected Agents

Satan is a king in the earth (Rev. 9:11) and his dominion is that of darkness. (Acts 26:18). He appoints workers of darkness to carry our his rule in the world. Christians must submit to the ruling authorities (as long as the ruling authorities do not require them to disobey God) but we must not fall into the snare of voting Satan's workers into positions of authority. To do so is to ensure that we will not be able to counteract their evil deeds through prayer. 

Satan's motives are destructive, thus the motives of his followers—who Christians are encouraged (and manipulated) to vote into office—will also be destructive. (John 10:10, 1 Pet. 5:8)

Satan works to hinder the work and Word of God. (Daniel 10:12, 13), Mark 4:15,  1 Thess. 2:18)  His elected representatives do the same. 

Satan deceives the nations. (Rev. 12:9; 20:3,8). His elected officials also operate by way of deception.

Satan afflicts men spiritually and physically. (2 Cor. 12:7) His agents pass laws and policies that accomplish this goal.

Christians are not able to stand against the wiles of Satan via elected officials if we give the devil a foothold:

"Neither give place to the devil." Ephesians 4:7

Christians today can and must stand against the power of the enemy in prayer but the ability to successfully pray against the goals of the devil (via his politicians, ministers, etc.) is not unconditional. Spiritual authority is conditioned upon the Christian's obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ and his refusal to give place to the devil.

Followers of the Lord Jesus Christ must not be ignorant of Satan's devices "lest he should get an advantage of us." (2 Cor. 2:11) Voting for the "lesser of the evils" is one such device. 


What Should I Do if I Have Already Cast My Vote For the "Lesser of the Evils"?

For those of you who acknowledge that you have (either recently or years ago) voted for the so-called "lesser of the evils" and now desire to have authority in your prayers against the devices of evil men, you can do this by first confessing your sin to God:

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9)

Next, take back the spiritual place you unwittingly gave to the devil by voting for  candidates who represent his interests. You can use the words I have provided or choose your own wording. The point is to be very serious about recovering the spiritual "place" you gave to the devil so that you can now effectively pray against his wicked devices:

In the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I renounce voting into off the follow people: (Name the people you voted into office.) I renounce voting for these people, who I now realize are serving the one world agenda (Satan) through their actions. I reject all evil spirits who have been able to operate in my life because of this sin, even though I committed it in ignorance, and I close the doors to them completely.

Dear Father in Heaven,

Help me to effectively stand against the wiles of the devil in prayer. Please make me aware of the other ways I have  compromised my right to have spiritual authority (in the name of Jesus Christ) over the power of the enemy. Help me to work while it is day, for the night is coming when no man can work.  I ask you this in Jesus' name, Amen

May God help his people, who are called out of darkness into his marvelous light, to stand against the wiles of the devil and to further the work and Word of God through effectual, fervent prayer.
