And it’s Over. . .

So, was your prediction about the US election close?
For the record I predicted Hillary to win, Trump to eventually end up in jail and at least one election related death.  Guess I was wrong.
So what happens now?  Well, here’s the news.  Christ is still on the throne, and He would have been if Hillary had won. 
There are those who said a Republican win was necessary for the United States to remain a “Christian Nation”.   Well here’s another news flash: there are no “Christian Nations”, never have been & never will be.  There might be nations with Christian leaders, or nations that embrace Christian values but Christ never called nations to follow Him, He called people to follow Him.  
The reality is that regardless of who won the election, those who are called to follow Jesus are also commanded to pray for their leader, regardless of who they voted for and regardless of what side of the border we live on.   And when those words were written the wickedness of Emperor Nero makes our modern leaders look like amateurs in that field.
But Paul didn’t just tell Christians to pray for their leaders. The most important part of that passages tells us that we are to live our lives in all godliness and holiness.
