The Day the Votes Were Counted

It's hard to make predictions -- especially about the future.
Casey Stengle

What would happen if millions of people voted for Jesus Christ for President?

Here are some possibilities:

1. People's votes would actually count.

In order to cast a write-in vote, it is usually necessary to use a paper ballot. This can either be an absentee ballot, a vote-by-mail form, or an alternative paper ballot available at polling stations on Election Day. Check your own state (well in advance!) for requirements.

The great advantage of paper ballots is that they can be verified. There is much less opportunity for monkey business.

Elections officials routinely "certify" ballot results when they have no clue whether or how electronic vote-counting actually works. The software is a proprietary trade secret. Even if shown code, the average election "supervisor" would not be able to decipher complex programming constructs.

So what do they do? They "certify" based on pure faith that the vote software company has written and delivered secure, bug-free hardware and software that has not been tampered with or manipulated in any way.

How great is their faith! And how great is your faith, if you believe a society of thieves would allow election results to be honestly counted when the stakes are so high and an inpenetratable shroud of secrecy makes the target so tempting.

...and men loved the darkness more than the Light,
for their works were evil.
John 3:19b

One shrewd observer commented that the only reason for the 2000 Florida ballot fiasco was to make people think their vote still counted.

People who write in votes are often told that their vote won't count. The irony is that if they get a paper ballot they may have the only vote that does count! All their votes -- from governor to school board -- will be counted and verifiable.

2. Presidential Electors may change their vote

Here is another subtle deception.

When an individual casts a vote purporting to be for a presidential candidate, he is actually voting for an obscure, unnamed official called a "presidential elector" -- not the candidate whose name appears on the ballot!

That's right. The ballot may say you are voting for So-And-So who is running for president, but state officials will take your vote and give it to a different person who is not running for president.

These unnamed parties then get together in a hidden room somewhere in each state and cast the real vote for who gets to be president.

While these electors have promised in advance to vote for a particular candidate, there is no legal requirement preventing them from changing their mind at the last moment. They are like any other politician in this regard.

(Courts have held that politicians can't be held accountable for campaign promises. Lying is in their job description.)

So while a majority of a state's voter's may cast a ballot for Candidate A, it is still possible for the state's electors to instead choose Candidate B.

None of this discussion is intended to denigrate the so-called Electoral College system. That is the system the founders of the American nation set up, and it serves a purpose. The problem is that people are being fed a bill-of-goods by media focusing on the so-called popular vote, as if it mattered.

The point is that presidential electors in each state could be moved by the Spirit to cast their vote for Jesus Christ.

It could be the most important vote they ever make.

3. The House of Representatives could decide to vote for Jesus

The constitution provides that if no candidate has a majority of the electoral votes the House of Representatives will choose from among the top five candidates, with each state casting a single vote.

If Jesus Christ is among that group, then He can be elected.

4. Jesus Christ could win the election.

Some might consider it a miracle, but nothing supernatural would be required -- except faith.

What would happen then? Would He show up to claim the office?

Only He knows what His plans are. When He does come the world will be transformed. If He delays, we carry on using provisions established for filling a vacant office. No damage will have been done.

Politicians will know the people have declared they would rather follow Christ than men. Perhaps we can start getting the nation back in line with God's will.

It doesn't hurt to try.

Politicians promise -- but Jesus delivers!


For a Child is born; to us a Son is given; and the government is on His shoulder; and His name is called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

There is no end to the increase of His government and of peace on the throne of David, and on His kingdom, to order it, and to sustain it with justice and with righteousness, from now and forever. The zeal of Jehovah of Hosts will do this. (Isaiah 9:6-7)
