2016 a year of decision that will shape our future [2] and Psalm 75.

For Christian eyes.

What is at stake? Our liberty to believe, to speak what we believe, and to teach it to our children.

We are facing in the coming election the most critical choices between good and evil that we have faced since Federation.

The consequence of failure? State sanctioned indoctrination, punishment for our believing the truth, and “diversity re-education” to correct what we believe to be moral absolutes – the truth.

Will we, as Christians, put our faith in false gods or will we get on our knees and above all else make informed choices this year that honour the Most High God – to love Him with all our hearts and souls and minds and strength, and our neighbour – and his children and his children’s children.

You don’t know what I’m talking about? Please, take just 5 minutes of your time to read 2016 a year of decision that will shape our future [1] http://www.chooselifeaustralia.org.au/life/2016-a-year-of-decision-that-will-shape-our-future-1/

Psalm 75 speaks for itself. A warning, a promise of (eventual) justice, but as for me I will honour God.

Choose ye this day. As with the Israelites the choices we make today – this election year – may shape our future for decades to come. Apart from a decision to surrender to God for salvation, the choices we – as the body of Christ, as the Bride of Christ – make now are the most serious we have ever faced. I trust and pray that we will Choose Life Australia.

The separation of church and state should not, must not, mean we leave our faith at home when we make the journey to the polling booth.

For decades to come, even a new dark age? For Christians, years of exile? Let us anticipate and pray for the return of Jesus as conqueror.

Psalm 75

For the choir director: A psalm of Asaph. A song to be sung to the tune “Do Not Destroy!”

We thank you, O God!
We give thanks because you are near.
People everywhere tell of your wonderful deeds.

God says, “At the time I have planned,
I will bring justice against the wicked.
When the earth quakes and its people live in turmoil,
I am the one who keeps its foundations firm. Interlude

“I warned the proud, ‘Stop your boasting!’
I told the wicked, ‘Don’t raise your fists!
Don’t raise your fists in defiance at the heavens
or speak with such arrogance.’”
For no one on earth—from east or west,
or even from the wilderness—
should raise a defiant fist.[a]
It is God alone who judges;
he decides who will rise and who will fall.
For the Lord holds a cup in his hand
that is full of foaming wine mixed with spices.
He pours out the wine in judgment,
and all the wicked must drink it,
draining it to the dregs.

But as for me, I will always proclaim what God has done;
I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.
10 For God says, “I will break the strength of the wicked,
but I will increase the power of the godly.”
