One more night and elections will be held for the Philippine president and other future government officials. The elected President has the highest authority and power vested on a single man in the republic. A president who will win the election on May 9, 2016 will not necessarily win because of his beliefs, idealisms and intellect nor his past accomplishments. Nothing will be certain to procure the position in regards to their inherent qualities but to sum it up, in a perfect republic (without cheating and anomalies) it is all about “popularity”. The constitution assigns the power completely among its citizen to decide who wins and who losses. Who is the most liked, most loved and most accepted by the majority of the voters will win as the president of the Philippines.
We all know, that it is not how a righteous church works. It is not the way of the bible nor the system of God. It is never thru fame or being renowned but it is really hard to discern someone’s motive especially during the campaign period. We may surely be clueless and presumptive in their approaches and values. There past actions can be evaluated and can speak effectively directly to our hearts. However, it is not a guarantee of their performance and victory in the future.
1 Timothy 2:1-2 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
Romans 13:3 – For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
What is happening to our country? The way I see it, politics is becoming dirtier, greedier, and burrowing deeper and darker into our society more than ever before. We should be scared to rebel or escape though the right way to do is to pray even more and go out there and vote. Let us pray that God will guide our nation and bring justice to all people, to all frontiers and to all walks of life. That whoever may win will all fall under God’s decisiveness and purpose. A purpose that may solely belongs to His true church.
