Why I Do Not and Cannot Vote In the Present State and Nature of Our Nation

Elections in this nations are rapidly coming up. As a Covenanter I do not vote. I am a Political Dissenter because of the state and nature of our nation. Why? Here are my Systematic summary run down of why I can’t vote..

1. Civil Government Instituted (Ex. 18)

2. Civil Government Set Up by Four Covenants (Ex. 18; Joshua 24:25; II Kings 11:17; Jeremiah 50:5; II Chronicles 15:15)

3. Qualifications of Magistrates Set by Election (Ex. 18:21; Nehemiah 7:2; 2 Sam. 23:2-3; Deut. 13:1,17; Jer. 30:21)

4. Laws Given to National Israel were a sight (model) for all nations (Deuteronomy 4:6)

5. Those Laws are for ever (Deuteronomy 5:29; Deuteronomy 11:1; Deuteronomy 29:29; Psalm 119:159-160)

6. The Messiah never abrogated these laws and even states emphatically twice that till heaven and earth pass away His laws will stand. (Matthew 5:17-19)

7. Those Laws are established by Him as King and is founded in equality and righteousness (Psalm 99:4)

8. There shall be ONE law for both Israel and the Stranger (Numbers 15:16,29; Lev 24:22; Ex. 12:49)

9. Gentiles Nations were judged for disobedience to that Laws (Genesis 18; Jonah)

10. The Messiah is King Over All the Earth and over All the Nations (Psalm 47:2,3,7,8; Psalm 72:11)

11. Over all is His Dominion and He is King (Psalm 103:19)

12. The Messiah has been given authority over all the judges, rulers and kings of the Earth and they must submit to Him and His laws. (Psalm 2; Psalm 76:12)

13. Believers are required to warn and testify God’s laws before unlawful and wicked kings of nations (Psalm 119:46)

14 Believers are required to warn and testify against those people who obey and walk willingly after usurpers and tyrants (Isaiah 10:1, Hosea 5:11)

15. Wicked rulers are not ordained ministers of God and are not to be recognized as such and are unlawful (Hosea 8:4, Romans 13, Exodus 18)

16. We are commanded not to fellowship with wicked rulers nor work for or in anyway recognize their title as lawful. We are not permitted to take oaths to them in anyway (Is. 8:12, Psalm 94:20-21, 2 Chronicles 19.2, Ephesians 5:11, 2 Corinthians 6:14-15, Jer. 2:28, Psalm 106:35, Hos. 5:13, and 7:8,11)

17. If those kings of the Earth do not qualify or disqualify themselves by performing wickedness then they are not lawful ordain magistrates and must be removed. (Judges 3:12-27; Judges 4:21&22-23; II Chronicles 15:16; I Kings 15:13; II Chronicles 21:10; Hos. 8:4; Luke 20:25; Romans 13)

18. And We are to Pray and Sing that God might remove them as He did as Sisera. With Jabin at the river of Kishon. They perished at En Dor, and were dung for the earth. Make them, even their princes, like Oreb and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes like Zebah and like Zalmunna. (Psalm 83:9-12)

19. Those kings that do not qualify or are disqualified are an abomination. (Proverbs 16:12)

All Authority and All power is given unto the Messiah in heaven and in earth. (Matthew 28) and we are to pray for an Earthly Manifestation of His Kingdom (Matthew 6:10)

A Big problem would be taking an oath to an unlawful and anti-christian government and constitution and thus legitimatizing that government and constitution which is unlawful and sinful in the first place.

And if I vote for someone (that would recognize the government as lawful and legitimate) and they win and they take an Oath to affirm a blasphemous constitution and uphold all the unjust laws in the nation, and not obey God’s law then I become an accomplice in their sin.

“He shall cut off the spirit of princes; he is terrible to the kings of the earth. (Psalm 76:12), Be wise now therefore, ye kings: be learned ye judges of the earth. Serve the Lord in fear, and rejoice in trembling. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish in the way, when his wrath shall suddenly burn. (Psalm 2:10-12), Do thou to them as unto the Midianites: as to Sisera and as to Jabin at the river of Kishon. hey perished at En Dor, and were dung for the earth. Make them, even their princes, like Oreb and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes like Zebah and like Zalmunna, Which have said, Let us take for our possession the habitations of God. (Psalm 83:9-12), For the Lord is high, and terrible; a great King over all the earth. He hath subdued the people under us, and the nations under our feet. (Psalm 47:1-2)

These are my reasons in a systematic summary way.

Let God Arise, and let his Enemies be scattered.
