The Coming Election, by Pastor Ed Evans

I'm going to make one more statement about this coming election, then I'm going to get off that horse, because we are only one day away from one of the most important decisions Americans will ever make about this nation and its future.
The statement is this: If Barack Hussein Obama is put back into office, the next time we have a situation where people need to be rescued, and those trained to perform those rescues are told to stand down, those who voted for Obama will have as much blood on their hands as he does. That kind of decision can only be made by a sitting President, otherwise the military will do its job.
If they are not allowed to, you will have blood on your hands.
This nation needs experienced leadership. Leadership to get us out of the economic ditch, out of the ethical and morality ditch, out of the dangerous security ditch we are in.
So I'm now climbing off that political charger, and going into prayer that whomever is elected by the people of America will serve Jesus who is the Christ. Without the involvement of God Almighty, America is at the mercy of the world, the flesh and Satan. Count on it. Pray, with me, that whomever is elected, they will serve the Christ, the Messiah, the Son of Almighty God.
Now, who am I to even make such statements?
I am a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am a minister retired from active church service, but once ordained to serve God, you are never out of active service to His name.
I am also a veteran of 30 years service in the United States Marine Corps. Afterward I served 17 years with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. I was in Vietnam twice, the second tour cut short by being wounded in 1970. As a member of G-3 (Operations) I was in 17 named operations on the first tour during 1967-68, including the Siege of Khe Sanh. I was in Beirut. I was in Iraq 2003-2004. So I have enough military knowledge to know what the U.S. military can do when it is allowed to do its job with the sophisticated tools at its disposal, without being hamstrung or stood down. And yes, that is a direct reference to the bloody debacle at Benghazi, Libya.
Now it is decision time. If you have not already voted -- or perhaps have decided to give up your responsibility as an American citizen to vote -- consider carefully not only what lies before us, but what got us to this terrible point in history over the last four year. The classic definition of insanity is continuing to do the same thing while expecting different results. 
There are people who are afraid to make decisions on even simple issues in their daily life experiences. Consequently, they live in fear and must live in the consequences of other people's decisions. But God has given us the tools of self reliance and innate values, and we are expected to make good use of what He has given us.
Trust in the Lord's sustaining grace, and pray -- once again -- that that whomever is elected by the people of America will serve Jesus who is the Christ.
