Election 2016 – Shock and Awe, Sermon

Despondent Hillary Clinton Supporters

Shock and Awe

After the Trump victory, many Hillary Clinton supporters and even many Donald Trump supporters have experienced shock and awe! The worst thing that could happen though would be for Christians and ProLifers to fall asleep and let trust Trump and the Republican party to defend innocent human life, restore liberty and justice for all, appoint constructionist justices, and defend the constitution. We must hold all of our elected officials (federal, state, and local) accountable to protect preborn children, establish justice, and follow the Bible. We must be salt and light and kick in the gates of Hell until Satan has not one inch of territory in our nation.

Listen to my sermon entitled Election 2016 – Shock and Awe.

Sermon Notes: Election 2016 – Shock and Awe

Opening Passage — Psalm 72.

God’s Sovereignty in Elections

Daniel 2:21 – “And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise And knowledge to those who have understanding. (NKJV)

Daniel 4:17 – ‘This decision is by the decree of the watchers, And the sentence by the word of the holy ones, In order that the living may know That the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, Gives it to whomever He will, And sets over it the lowest of men.’ (NKJV)

1 Timothy 2:1-2 – “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. (NKJV)

Proverbs 14:34 – “Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a reproach to any people.” (NKJV)

Psalms 33:12‑19 – “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, The people He has chosen as His own inheritance… No king is saved by the multitude of an army; A mighty man is not delivered by great strength. A horse is a vain hope for safety; Neither shall it deliver any by its great strength. Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him, On those who hope in His mercy, To deliver their soul from death, And to keep them alive in famine.” (NKJV)

The Cultural War Over Moral Issues

Abortion – Their Blood Cries Out

“Then they shall answer and say, ‘Our hands have not shed this blood, nor have our eyes seen it. Provide atonement, O LORD, for Your people Israel, whom You have redeemed, and do not lay innocent blood to the charge of Your people Israel’ And atonement shall be provided on their behalf for the blood.” (Deuteronomy 21:7-8 NKJV)

Manasseh Filled Jerusalem with Innocent Blood – 2 Kings 21:1-16.

The Support of the Homosexual Agenda

Leviticus 18 & 20.

The Cultural War Over Fiscal Issues

The Proper Role of Government – 1 Samuel 8 & Romans 13:1-7, Exodus 20:17.

Numbers 11:4-6 – “Now the mixed multitude who were among them yielded to intense craving; so the children of Israel also wept again and said: ‘Who will give us meat to eat? We remember the fish which we ate freely in Egypt, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic; but now our whole being is dried up; there is nothing at all except this manna before our eyes!’” (NKJV)

The Battle for the Courts

Deuteronomy 16:18-20 – “You shall appoint judges and officers in all your gates, which the LORD your God gives you, according to your tribes, and they shall judge the people with just judgment. You shall not pervert justice; you shall not show partiality, nor take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the righteous. You shall follow what is altogether just, that you may live and inherit the land which the LORD your God is giving you.” (NKJV)

A Call to Vigilance in Holding Elected Officials Accountable

Matthew 5:13 – “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.” (NKJV)

1 Timothy 3:15 – “… I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.” (NKJV)

Matthew 16:18 – “… on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. (NKJV)

Matthew 28:18‑20 – “And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’ Amen.” (NKJV)

1 Corinthians 15:25‑26 – “For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be destroyed is death. (NKJV)

Psalms 110:1 – “The LORD said to my Lord, ‘Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.’” (NKJV)

A Call to Continued Repentance

2 Chronicles 7:13‑14 – “When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (NKJV)

Applying Biblical Principles to the Proposed Constitutional Amendments and St Lucie County Referendums

Florida Constitution

Florida Constitution

As Floridians go to the polls to vote on constitutional amendments, it is important to apply Biblical principles to the proposed constitutional amendments and county referendums. It is important also to remember that The Florida Constitution is the supreme law of our state subordinate only to the US Constitution. We never want to put evil into the FL Constitution or add items that could be handled legislatively.

Below, you will find recommendations on the proposed constitutional amendments as well as a sermon by Pastor Bryan Longworth which applies biblical principles to the following amendments and proposed county referendums.

Proposed Constitutional Amendments

Proposed Amendment 1 – Rights of Electricity Consumers Regarding Solar Energy Choice – Vote No!

Proposed Amendment 2 – Use of Marijuana for Debilitating Medical Conditions – Vote No!

Proposed Amendment 3 – Tax Exemption for Totally and Permanently Disabled First Responders – Vote Yes!

Proposed Amendment 5 – Homestead Tax Exemption for Certain Senior, Low-Income, Long-Term Residents; Determination of Just Value – Vote No!

St Lucie County Proposed County Referendums

No.7 – Half-Cent Local Government Surtax – Vote No!

No.8 Slot Machines at Licensed Pari-mutuel Facilities Located in St. Lucie County – Vote No!

Opening Passage — Psalm 149.

Proposed Amendment 1 – Rights of Electricity Consumers Regarding Solar Energy Choice

This amendment establishes a right under Florida’s constitution for consumers to own or lease solar equipment installed on their property to generate electricity for their own use. State and local governments shall retain their abilities to protect consumer rights and public health, safety and welfare, and to ensure that consumers who do not choose to install solar are not required to subsidize the costs of backup power and electric grid access to those who do.

A vote “for” Amendment 1 supports adding a section in the state constitution giving residents of Florida the right to own or lease solar energy equipment for personal use while also enacting constitutional protection for any state or local law ensuring that residents who do not produce solar energy can abstain from subsidizing its production.

A vote “against” Amendment 1 opposes constitutionalizing the right to own or lease solar equipment and the protection of laws preventing subsidization of solar energy, thereby, leaving the personal use of solar power protected as a right by state statute, and not by the constitution.

Where Do Rights Come From?

  • God
  • Government

Declaration of Independence

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Genesis 1:27 – “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” (NKJV)

Genesis 9:6 – “Whoever sheds man’s blood, By man his blood shall be shed; For in the image of God He made man.” (NKJV)

Proverbs 6:16-19 – “These six things the LORD hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: … A false witness who speaks lies …” (NKJV)

Fourth Amendment – U.S. Constitution

Search and Seizure

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

Proposed Amendment 2 – Use of Marijuana for Debilitating Medical Conditions

Allows medical use of marijuana for individuals with debilitating medical conditions as determined by a licensed Florida physician. Allows caregivers to assist patients’ medical use of marijuana. The Department of Health shall register and regulate centers that produce and distribute marijuana for medical purposes and shall issue identification cards to patients and caregivers. Applies only to Florida law. Does not immunize violations of federal law or any non-medical use, possession or production of marijuana.

Increased costs from this amendment to state and local governments cannot be determined. There will be additional regulatory costs and enforcement activities associated with the production, sale, use and possession of medical marijuana. Fees may offset some of the regulatory costs. Sales tax will likely apply to most purchases, resulting in a substantial increase in state and local government revenues that cannot be determined precisely. The impact on property tax revenues cannot be determined.

A “yes” vote supports legalizing medical marijuana for individuals with specific debilitating diseases or comparable debilitating conditions as determined by a licensed state physician.

A “no” vote opposes this proposal for legalization of medical marijuana, keeping the state’s current more limited medical marijuana program in place.

Biblical Law – Personal Responsibility

Proposed Amendment 3 – Tax Exemption for Totally and Permanently Disabled First Responders.

Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to authorize a first responder, who is totally and permanently disabled as a result of injuries sustained in the line of duty, to receive relief from ad valorem taxes assessed on homestead property, if authorized by general law. If approved by voters, the amendment takes effect January 1, 2017.

A “yes” vote supports providing property tax exemptions to first responders who have been permanently disabled in the line of duty.

A “no” vote opposes providing property tax exemptions for first responders disabled in the line of duty.

Property Rights — Deuteronomy 19:14 – “You shall not remove your neighbor’s landmark, which the men of old have set, in your inheritance which you will inherit in the land that the LORD your God is giving you to possess.”

Proposed Amendment 5 – Homestead Tax Exemption for Certain Senior, Low-Income, Long-Term Residents; Determination of Just Value.

Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution to revise the homestead tax exemption that may be granted by counties or municipalities for property with just value less than $250,000 owned by certain senior, low-income, long-term residents to specify that just value is determined in the first tax year the owner applies and is eligible for the exemption. The amendment takes effect January 1, 2017, and applies retroactively to exemptions granted before January 1, 2017.

A “yes” vote supports providing eligible senior citizens with certain property tax exemptions and allowing home values to remain fixed after application for the exemption, even if the value later exceeds the designated threshold.

A “no” vote opposes this proposal for providing senior citizens with certain property tax exemptions and the ability to have fixed home values, even if the value later exceeds the designated threshold.

No.7 – Half-Cent Local Government Surtax

To provide for projects exclusively in St. Lucie County to improve local roads, reduce traffic congestion, improve public safety, improve local water quality and other similar uses authorized under Florida law and to seek matching funds for these purposes, shall St. Lucie County levy a half-cent sales tax for twenty years, subject to review by a citizens advisory committee to ensure that all dollars are spent on St. Lucie County projects?

1 Samuel 8:15 & 17 – “He will take a tenth of your grain and your vintage, and give it to his officers and servants… He will take a tenth of your sheep. And you will be his servants.” (NKJV)

No.8 Slot Machines at Licensed Pari-mutuel Facilities Located in St. Lucie County

Shall slot machines be authorized within licensed pari-mutuel facilities in St. Lucie County subject to the restrictions of state law?

Exodus 20:9-10 – “Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates.” (NKJV)

Proverbs 12:24 – “The hand of the diligent will rule, But the lazy man will be put to forced labor.” (NKJV)

Proverbs 13:22 – “A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, But the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous.” (NKJV)

Leviticus 19:10 – “‘And you shall not glean your vineyard, nor shall you gather every grape of your vineyard; you shall leave them for the poor and the stranger: I am the LORD your God.’” (NKJV)

2016 Florida Supreme Court and 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, & 5th District Court of Appeals Judges Up for Retention

2016 Florida Supreme Court

2016 Florida Supreme Court

The Importance of Judicial Elections

Activist Judges in America have accomplished in the courts what the House and Senate couldn’t accomplish legislatively. They’ve twisted and changed the constitution to create case law to “justify” removing prayer, the Bible, and the Ten Commandments from public classrooms and nearly every area of public life. They’ve created a right to privacy that first allowed married couples to purchase contraception. This new right was then extended to unmarried couples and then further extended to allow a woman the “right” to pay an abortionist to murder her preborn child. This right was later extended to homosexuals convicted of sodomy. One can only wonder what will be the next step.

Our founding fathers feared that the courts would one day rule our country and strip our freedoms from us. As Thomas Jefferson noted, “Our judges are as honest as other men, and not more so. They have — with others — the same passions for party, for power, and the privilege of their corps. . . . And their power the more dangerous as they are in office for life and not responsible — as the other functionaries are — to the elective control.”

In the Federal Court system, we have no way of reigning in the judiciary short of impeachment, and impeachment is rare. The last politician who attempted to reign in the federal judiciary was forced to resign after facing trumped up charges.

In Florida, however, Justices come up for retention votes after originally being appointed by the Governor. Sadly, most Floridians pay little attention to the judges up for retention, and little knowledge is available on the judicial philosophy of judges and how they’ve ruled on previous cases. Consequently, judges normally are retained with 65 – 75% of the vote.

This must stop! We are in the process of developing a network of attorneys statewide to be constitutional watchdogs in the courts by reporting on how the judges rule on various issues before them, and we the people need to educate ourselves and cast out the judges who view our constitution as “a mere thing of wax in the hands of the judiciary, which they may twist and shape into any form they please.” (Jefferson). For more on the damage judges have wrought in our country, watch my sermon entitled Judicial Activism: http://covenanttabernacle.com/2010/10/17/sermon-10172010-judicial-activism-tyranny-legislating-from-the-bench.

Below are my recommendations for the FL Supreme Court and 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th District Court of Appeals. Following my recommendations, I will explain the rationale behind my recommendations on the Supreme Court justices. Please note that this information is partisan. As such, distributing this information in churches would violate the Johnson Amendment to the IRS 501c3 code. Anyone considering passing partisan voter guides in church, should contact the Alliance Defending Freedom prior to doing so at https://www.adflegal.org.

Florida Supreme Court Justices Up for Retention Rationale

Justice Charles T. Canady, Vote Yes to Retain

Appointed by: Governor Charlie Crist.

Justice Canady is a solid conservative who has served as a US Congressman and an attorney for Florida Governor Jeb Bush. As a Congressman, Canady voted for prolife legislation, voted to ban homosexual marriage, to limit welfare to two years and cut welfare spending, and to give poor kids Opportunity Scholarships to attend private schools. Canady served as one of the prosecuting attorney’s in President Bill Clinton’s Impeachment trial. As a lawyer for Governor Jeb Bush, Canady defended Opportunity Scholarships against legal challenges. Canady serves on the board of a home for unwed mothers. Canady’s nomination received praise from conservatives and the presidents of the Cuban American Bar Association and the Florida Chamber of Commerce but drew criticism from the ACLU director. While being sworn in, Canady asked, “For those of you who pray, I ask that you pray that I will always judge with wisdom and integrity as a faithful servant of the Lord.”

Canady wrote the dissenting opinion on the 2010 FL Proposed Constitutional Amendment 9, arguing that the court should have allowed the amendment to stay on the ballot. Amendment 9 would have given Floridians the right to decide whether to participate in the Federal health care system or not.

Justice Charles T. Canady, Vote Yes to Retain

Justice Jorge Labarga, Vote No to Not Retain

Appointed by: Governor Charlie Crist.

In 2000, Justice Jorge Labarga played a role in the hanging chad case in Palm Beach County ruling that election officials “could not necessarily disregard irregular chads that had not been fully punched out on ballot cards.” (www.nydailynews.com)

In 2008, Labarga made threatening comments about an attorney. “When you pick a fight with a judge, ultimately, you are gonna lose. Not today, but five years from now, 10 years from now, six years from now. That judge is going to remember you, always, always,” Labarga said.

“And, you know, when you do — there is an old saying that if you go after a judge, you better kill him. Because, like I said, it’s true.” (judicialtransperancynow.blogspot.com)

Labarga also was one of five justices to vote to take 2010 FL Proposed Constitutional Amendment 9 off of the ballot. Amendment 9 would have given Floridians the right to decide whether to participate in the Federal health care system or not. (HealthCareNewsFlorida.org)

Justice Jorge Labarga, Vote No to Not Retain


Justice Ricky L. Polston, Vote Yes to Retain

Appointed by: Governor Charlie Crist.

Justice Ricky L. Polston is a solid conservative. Prior to becoming a Justice, he defended the state’s “Choose Life” license plate in court. The Choose Life license plate allows owners of automobiles to pay an additional amount with their tag registration fee that goes to mothers who choose to give their baby up for adoption. As an appellant court judge, Polston wrote a dissenting opinion in favor of opportunity scholarships (vouchers). Polston has four biological children and has adopted six children from Florida’s foster care system.

Polston joined Canady in a dissenting opinion where Canady argued that the court should have allowed 2010 FL Proposed Constitutional Amendment 9 to stay on the ballot. Amendment 9 would have given Floridians the right to decide whether to participate in the Federal health care system or not.

Justice Ricky L. Polston, Vote Yes to Retain

I’m planning to vote. Are You?

In Exodus 18:21, we read, “Moreover you shall select from all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them to be rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.”

In Deuteronomy 1:13 reminds a new generation of Israelites of the importance of selecting wise leaders, “‘Choose wise, understanding, and knowledgeable men from among your tribes, and I will make them heads over you.'”

The first chief justice of the US Supreme Court admonished Americans with these words, “Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation, to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.”

This election, Americans who vote will determine who are rulers are. Americans who don’t vote will be stuck the politicians others voted for.

Sadly, about half of the Christians in this country aren’t even registered to vote, and about half of those who are registered won’t vote! If only a small percentage of the Christians who aren’t register get registered and vote, it could make a dramatic difference in this election.

There are many important races at the federal, state, and local level.It is vitally important that we elect as many candidates that will uphold Biblical values as possible to all levels of government. We need to restore checks and balances at the federal, state, and local levels to effectively reign in the various branches of government when they exceed their delegated authority.

Will you join me in voting November 8 (or sooner via vote by mail or early voting)? The deadline to register to vote in the general election is Tuesday, October 11. If you or someone you know isn’t registered to vote, visit your local supervisor of elections office to register or update your registration no later than Tuesday, October 11.
