And he said to them, "What things?" And they said to him, "Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, a man who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people, and how our chief priests and rulers delivered him up to be condemned to death, and crucified him. But we had hoped that he was the one to redeem Israel. Yes, and besides all this, it is now the third day since these things happened. -- Luke 24:19-21 (ESV)
Let me preface this by saying it does not matter who you vote for. Your right to vote and civic responsibility are entirely carnal, meaning they belong to the things of this world. The notion that when we stand before Christ He is going to say, "Well, I'd love to let you in but c'mon, Clinton in 96?" is biblically illiterate and moronic. Man has been trying to leverage God in His politics forever and will continue to do so. The disciples themselves wanted Jesus to be political. They wanted Him to deliver them from the oppression of the Roman Empire but He was having none of it. He came to deliver them eternally from their sin and that still remains the goal beloved. The Gospel is not about this world but the next. How much were they driven by their desires for worldly deliverance? The key verses come from the story on the Road to Emmaus, three days after the crucifixion. Jesus appears to some followers walking to Emmaus and asks them what they are talking about, as He blinded them from who He really was. What was their big takeaway even though they had heard the body was already gone from the tomb? That Jesus did not deliver them from Rome. Jesus did in fact redeem Israel but they were still focused on their political reality. As it was so it always goes and today we see the influence of the New Apostolic Reformation instill generations with the same political focus at the very same expense of ignoring the Gospel.
We saw it explode in 2016 and 2020 is looking to be even worse for the true cause of Christ as we are already seeing an onslaught of attention and press paid to protecting their perceived political messiah, Donald Trump. Hyperbole you think? The third link above is to an article about a Facebook group called, "Make the Gospel Great Again." Putting aside the stupidity of that name, they found themselves in some controversy recently when they paid for a billboard in Missouri which only had three elements:
1) The phrase, "The Word became flesh"
2) The verse, John: 1:14
3) A picture of Donald Trump's face
