The 2016 Election & It's Importance



There is a transition happening in the spirit.

For the last 8 to 10 weeks I’ve heard the urgency.

Last week I had a prophetic word to those who have been a Christian and have become lukewarm

Moses – Don’t strike the rock

  • Wasn’t mad because of the people, he defended them, but worried about the stragglers

Deuteronomy 25:17-18 NAS 17 Remember what Amalek did to you along the way when you came out from Egypt, 18 how he met you along the way and attacked among you all the stragglers at your rear when you were faint and weary; and he did not fear God.

  • The purpose of this is not to ensure my American way of living.
    • I will prosper and further the kingdom in whatever government God puts me in
  • I also am not doing this as a competitive thing hoping my side will win
    • I’m doing this because I believe God has a purpose in it and I am a mouthpiece of His
    • I also am not looking for or care about the approval or disapproval of anyone

As I was bemoaning Marlin Maddoux about his focusing on America’s issues instead of bible issues on his radio program, Point of View.

  • God told me that the United States constitution is the single document holding back a world government
    • The Unites States has been the main factor in the defeating and restraining of antichrists that have tried to arise in the last 100 years.

The reason for me saying this now is because God showed me that this election would be a separating factor for His people

  • God separates people from His people because they carry a cooling and a muting factor that has a negative impact on what God’s people are supposed to be.

When God wants to separate by the heart of people He offers them a choice

  • God expects His people to know His voice and recognize Him in a situation
    • This way the people choose and God is not the chooser lest He be a respecter of persons


  • Separation Scriptures:

Matthew 13:47-50 NKJV 47 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet that was cast into the sea and gathered some of every kind, 48 which, when it was full, they drew to shore; and they sat down and gathered the good into vessels, but threw the bad away. 49 So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just, 50 and cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth."

  • Parable of the tares

Matthew 13:24-30 NAS 24 Jesus presented another parable to them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field.  25 "But while his men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went away.  26 "But when the wheat sprouted and bore grain, then the tares became evident also.  27 "The slaves of the landowner came and said to him, 'Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?'  28 "And he said to them, 'An enemy has done this!' The slaves said to him, 'Do you want us, then, to go and gather them up?'  29 "But he said, 'No; for while you are gathering up the tares, you may uproot the wheat with them.  30 'Allow both to grow together until the harvest; and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, "First gather up the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them up; but gather the wheat into my barn."'" 

  • Explanation of the parable of the tares

Matthew 13:36-43 NAS 36 Then He left the crowds and went into the house. And His disciples came to Him and said, "Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field." 37 And He said, "The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man, 38 and the field is the world; and as for the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; and the tares are the sons of the evil one; 39 and the enemy who sowed them is the devil, and the harvest is the end of the age; and the reapers are angels.  40 "So just as the tares are gathered up and burned with fire, so shall it be at the end of the age.  41 "The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness, 42 and will throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.  43 "Then THE RIGHTEOUS WILL SHINE FORTH AS THE SUN in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.


  • Separation happens as we choose wrongly because we are blind or become blind and deceived

2 Corinthians 4:3-4 AMP 3 But even if our Gospel (the glad tidings) also be hidden (obscured and covered up with a veil that hinders the knowledge of God), it is hidden [only] to those who are perishing and obscured [only] to those who are spiritually dying and veiled [only] to those who are lost. 4 For the god of this world has blinded the unbelievers' minds [that they should not discern the truth], preventing them from seeing the illuminating light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ (the Messiah), Who is the Image and Likeness of God. 

2 Thessalonians 2:7-12 NAS 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. 8 Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; 9 that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, 10 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. 11 For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, 12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness. 

Matthew 24:24 NKJV For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.

  • Deceive (Greek) planao (plan-ah'-o); to (cause to) roam (from safety, truth, or virtue): KJV - go astray, deceive, err, seduce, wander
