The kingdoms of this world have been, and will be shaken, for they are the kingdoms of men. But His kingdom is one eternal, not of men, but of God Himself. An unshakeable kingdom of which we who believe are all a part of.
A kingdom with promises like:
Isaiah 54:17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their righteousness is from Me," Says the LORD.
Who said this? The Lord! This is not a hokey political promise He needs to make for us to elect Him to high office.
He sits on the throne of heaven itself, the earth is His footstool! He has no need to be popular, He has no need for constituents. His throne is steadfastly secure and not even Satan himself can remove Him from it.
When 1/3 of the angels followed Lucifer in the rebellion to take the throne, God put them down with ease. No major difficulty for the Almighty of heaven.
I am here to bear witness today that an election here in the U.S did not phase the Almighty and catch Him off guard.
God is not wringing His hands and saying to Jesus what are we going to do now?
God is still in control!
Psalms 2:1 ¶ Why the big noise, nations? Why the mean plots, peoples? 2 Earth-leaders push for position, Demagogues and delegates meet for summit talks, The God-deniers, the Messiah-defiers: 3 "Let’s get free of God! Cast loose from Messiah!" 4 Heaven-throned God breaks out laughing. At first he’s amused at their presumption; 5 Then he gets good and angry. Furiously, he shuts them up: 6 "Don’t you know there’s a King in Zion? A coronation banquet Is spread for him on the holy summit." 7 ¶ Let me tell you what GOD said next. He said, "You’re my son, And today is your birthday. 8 What do you want? Name it: Nations as a present? continents as a prize? 9 You can command them all to dance for you, Or throw them out with tomorrow’s trash." 10 ¶ So, rebel-kings, use your heads; Upstart-judges, learn your lesson: 11 Worship GOD in adoring embrace, Celebrate in trembling awe. 12 Kiss Messiah! Your very lives are in danger, you know; His anger is about to explode, But if you make a run for God—you won’t regret it!
I believe we can put all our trust in our God during these difficult times.

- I currently serve as Senior Pastor of Harvest Church in Knoxville, Tn. I was sent out from Trinity Chapel of Knoxville in 1993 accompanied by my wife Sheila our four children Sarah, Hannah, Josiah & Isaac and a handful of bold, brave and committed believers determined to plant our first church. Pioneering is hard work but well worth the journey. That is why we desire to make disciples of Christ who will, like us, also embrace the call to plant churches.
