Are all politicians liars?
Matt 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
So we are living in the last days, and if we were to base our faith upon what we see in the news Media, life would be constant turmoil and stress, for: Pr 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:
No, as Christians, we must be people of the Word, for Ps 119:165 Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.
Our thoughts must be pure Phil 4: 8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
So what happens to a man in politics? I believe that many a person enters the politcal arena, with pure intentions, sincere in their desire to contribute to a better nation, determined to do right, and provide honest, strong, stable leadership, to countries that are often facing some degree of chaos, or another. The job of leadership is to bring order out of chaos, and strong leaders should honestly be trying to do what is best, for all the people they are called to serve, both rich and poor alike.
Yet, let’s consider this thought: What if a leader, makes a sincere decision, that they believe is right for the country, but that is not fully in line with the Word or Spirit of God for that nation?
Well, no matter what government you live under politically, there are always two forms of government under God, the political one, and the church of our Lord Jesus Christ, exercising God’s authority through prayer.
So we have the nations of man rising up, in conflict with one another, influenced in many cases by demonic principalities and powers, and Holy Spirit then alerts intercessors to pray, and stop evil works in the earth.
Kingdom arises against Kingdom!
The Kingdom of God arises against satanic rule and oppression.
So what about the politicians?
Well, after the church prays, and smashes mind blinding spirits from their lives, God pours out His spirit on all flesh, and we discover that:
Pr 21:1 The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.
The political leader, after having being prayed for, has God deal with his or her heart, and they realize that though they may have been sincere, they may have been sincerely wrong.
If they are wise, they humble themselves before God, and change their mind, and set a correct course for their leadership, before a holy God.
When it looks like they have changed their mind, generally, the media screams:’Liar, liar, pants on fire!’ but those that are wise fear not the media, nor any man, but God alone, to whom each of us, must one day give an account.
My concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right.”
― Abraham Lincoln
“I’m a success today because I had a friend who believed in me and I didn’t have the heart to let him down.”
― Abraham Lincoln
We who know Jesus, have true friend who will never let us down: Pr 18:24 A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
Jesus is that friend that sticks closer than a brother, the one who truly loves and understands us, He is the one we must ultimately be faithful to, no matter what other men say or do!
So, to answer my own question: ‘Are all politicians liars?’
My answer is this: Depends only upon their motive of heart. If they have a sincere desire to do right, and are humble, they will remain teachable before God, and will be willing to change their mind, when they discover the error of their ways.
In my mind, this does not make them liars, rather, men and women of God!
What do you think?
‘Father, help me to do right, and to pray for every person, holding any type of governemental, political, military, or judicial office, that You might lead them and guide them in all truth. Grant us light, integrity, courage, strength, health, and wisdom to live fully for You, and Your interests in our nation, bringing your kingdom, in righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit, Amen’
