The Book of Revelation And The Election Today …

Tales Of Nightingale Lynn

Ever since I was able to read Holy Scripture and understand my Catholic Faith, I have often read and re-read the book of Revelation. I realize the depth of many thoughts; “The Rapture”, “The End Times”, “The Apocalypse”, all are in the minds and thoughts of many who believe in God, but I’d like to give my view if I may.
As Laurie Watson Manhardt, PhD and Author, of” Come and See Catholic Bible Study”, She quotes “ The solutions to the world’s problems do not lie in politics, government programs, or social action. All Christians will learn to do battle against the enemies of God.

We are in difficult times, which some will say, “History Repeats Itself”, so not to worry, but we should all worry. This election of 2016 is unlike anything we have ever seen. In my middle sixties, I have not seen anything like this in all the years I have voted as an American Citizen.

We have two candidates who carry a lot of baggage and seem to think that it’s okay to do things many of us on the non-political stage would never think of doing nor would it be accepted. To do what Hillary has done in covering up emails which she is guilty of deleting in one way or another, while compromising the security of our country, or Trump, who speaks ill of women, unlike Bill Clinton who while in the Oval Office left his DNA on the dress of a women he had a liking to, is beyond comprehension when our country is in the state that it is in, the danger it is in.

Did you know that there is a channel (552), which gives news on the things that the media hardly covers if at all? For example, the Philippine Government who has been the alley with the United States in protection of arms is now siding with Russia and China, and China is in fact is now immersed in Africa as I write this post. This should cause great concern for all of us, regardless whether we believe in God or not.

We are headed into a war, a spiritual war that will come with great consequences. We as mankind make our choices, good or bad, but there will most certainly be consequences. I have 4 grandchildren that I love beyond words and a grown son and daughter whom I love as well, but I fear for the future of this country and their future.

Do you ever wonder what heaven would look like if you could see it? The Apostle John gets the chance in the book of Revelation Chapter 4; worth reading because John doesn’t see lives as we live today.   This earthly life is temporary and penultimate.

The book of Revelation is a short read, and very much to be taken not literally but with the understanding that when we die, it is not the end. Each of us has a soul and that soul will go on long after it leaves the body that housed it. That house that held the soul will crumble and decay.

So I challenge those that love to read to sit down in a quiet place, open the Bible and read the book of Revelation. Then come to your own understanding according to your faith, or your lack of.

I just have one question to throw out to all who respect life and that is; do you believe that a child in the womb should lose their life in the Third Trimester? Knowing that the baby’s heart began to beat at 8 weeks? If you do, then I know who will get your vote. Now some may read my post and say; what does this have to do with the book of Revelation! I leave that to you to read what is written and what will come of us since we have taken God out of almost everything and now Catholics and Evangelicals even more of a target in this election than ever before.

I have my own personal reasons for asking that those who vote this election consider “Life”, meaning that if the candidate who thinks it’s okay to destroy life in the womb at the “Third Trimester” and will appoint judges that will back this up, that this candidate not get your vote. In the end, we all will be held accountable for what we allowed to happen in our life and in this election, but also, what the next 4 years will bring if the wrong person is placed in the Oval Office.   It’s not about locker room talk but rather more on saving our country, Defending our Rights as Citizens The Right to bear arms, Freedom of

Religion, Freedom of Speech, Protecting the integrity of the United States and keeping the Supreme Court strong weak to the left.

It’s about giving our children and grandchildren a secure place to grow up in and become successful, to be secure in all ways as were once in the good ole days.

I believe that if a certain candidate becomes the Commander-in-Chief, after all the lies, deals with Iran and not caring for the Sanctity of Life, we as a country will never be the same and the book of Revelations will come sooner than later. God, Help Us And Guide Us, we need it more desperately now than ever.

  1. Lynn, Thank you for writing this thoughtful article, filled with truth. I have never actually studied the book of Revelation but I have read it and find it both fascinating and frightful – but it is 100% true. God says all sin is treated equally, but he also says sin against the body has severe consequences. Abortion is sin against the body and not just against the adult but even the unborn baby. We don’t even have to debate the end result of that act. We all have cause for concern as the powers of darkness invade more and more of the light. I thank God every day for his spirit in the world that holds back the evil until Jesus comes in the clouds. Our women’s Bible Study this session has been using Priscilla Shirer’s study on the Armor of God. It’s powerful and so needed as we prepare for battle, not against physical things that we can see but against rulers of darkness which are not seen. I cling to scripture and last week I read these verses and I wrote them out for reference. Ephesians 1:9-10 in the New Living Translation: God has now revealed to us his mysterious will regarding Christ—which is to fulfill his own good plan. And this is the plan: At the right time he will bring everything together under the authority of Christ—everything in heaven and on earth. God has a plan and when the time is right he will have the final say. Satan is vicious, he is not victorious.
