Why the Church Cannot Afford to Be Divided, Especially Now

God is neither Republican nor Democrat. He is holy.

On a recent episode of The Grace Revolution on the Charisma Podcast Network, I shared how I was interceding for the nation last week as the entire country sat on the edge of their seats waiting for the results of the election. Very softly, the Lord reminded me of this truth: "I am not a Republican or a Democrat. I am holy."

This is a truth I believe we all need to be reminded of. I believe God loves America, as He does every nation, but we must never exchange our prophetic perspective for political preference. Remember this: The crucifixion of our Lord came down to an election!

There were two spirits at work that advocated for the crucifixion: the political spirit and the religious spirit. Both are motivated by a strongman called the fear of man! The fear of man is the belief that being socially accepted is more important than thinking for yourself. Being more concerned about what other people think about you rather than what God may be saying to you is the fear of man. The fear of man was why Herod killed Jesus. The fear of man looks like political correctness.

The church has to get back to being the church. Only a united church can heal a divided nation. We cannot afford to be divided by political differences. It is righteousness that exalts a nation—that means you and me doing our part to stand up for right causes and investing our money and support in the right places. What we can do for people daily can have a greater impact on the lives of people than the box you check for just one day.

Let's make this clear. Your or another person's salvation is not predicated upon the person or party they choose to vote or not vote for. Let's not be self-righteous over other people's rights. God is neither a Democrat nor a Republican. He is holy.
