Clinton – Trump Debate. Who deserves the Presidency?

text size A A A

Where can we find wisdom to understand how to unravel the professions of men and women to know truth and choose well. The Bible describes the great wisdom of Solomon in deciding the true mother of a baby stolen from another. Both mothers – harlots, present their case, the true mother is more interested not in possession of the baby, but that the baby survives an apparent impending death which would be the natural result of dividing the infant.

A scenario of division and disunity produces no winners … only an imminent destruction that would hurt the real owner of the baby … a pain far greater to bear for the true mother. The true owner of anything is able to release it, knowing it really does not change its identity, only its possession. The life of the baby gives joy to the true mother. Which candidate will preserve America from decay?

Both harlots in the biblical narration are not credible, but one was the true owner. The possessor of the title “President” is the one that truly loves his or her country and who will have grace to release the opportunity if that action will achieve a greater good and preservation of a nation that now appears irreparably divided and besieged by many threats. The pretender will not see or care for these threats or will dismiss them. The “Sword of Solomon” hangs over the baby … the tone of the true mother is indisputably different from the uncaring hustler. Wisdom always knows how to listen beyond the words, for the spirit behind expressions … to pick out the pretender from the virtuous. Will Americans discern beyond facile rehearsed answers, media bias and showmanship to sense the heart truly prepared to nurture a nation to its divine destiny?

King Solomon is no fool. He knows the truth is not obvious and so he designs a test.

1 Kings 3:26 Then spake the woman whose the living child was unto the king, for her bowels yearned upon her son, and she said, O my lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay it. But the other said, Let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it. 27 Then the king answered and said, Give her the living child, and in no wise slay it: she is the mother thereof. 28 And all Israel heard of the judgment which the king had judged; and they feared the king: for they saw that the wisdom of God was in him, to do judgment.

If America makes a wrong unwise choice … will God intervene? ... or will He endure longer, like He did with the populist choice of King Saul – as ugly consequences unfold, only to declare later …

1 Samuel_16:1 And the LORD said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons.

One can only pray for mercy, but God Himself alone knows and can interpret how He dispenses His benevolences. However, it seems true that countries do get the leader they deserve as they always have the opportunity to choose well and enough signals are evident on what they can expect. God bless America.
