DID THE GOVERNORS OF INDIANA AND ARKANSAS JUST BOW THE KNEE TO BAAL?
IF SO, THEY ARE NOT THE LEADERSHIP GOD IS LOOKING FOR IN THE
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

Naboth flatly refused. He told Ahab that he was not going to give up his family inheritance. He could not be bought! That sent Ahab into an emotional tailspin, and he went off pouting like a big, overgrown baby. His wife, Jezebel, who apparently wore the pants in the family, came home to find Ahab crying over Naboth's refusal to give him his vineyard. Jezebel told the king that she would get the vineyard for him and immediately flew into action. She set Naboth up by bringing in two or three false witnesses to testify against him on some bogus, trumped-up charge. Then, acting as judge and jury, she summarily exercised her regal powers and had Naboth executed.
As I was reading this story, the Lord spoke to me - this was about seven years ago - that there were men and women in our nation who were going to rise up and literally sacrifice their lives in order to see our country return to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord told me that these people would come from the political arena especially, as well as all walks of life, and at all levels. They would not sell or trade their inheritance, the United States of America, for anything.
Unfortunately, the governors of Indiana and Arkansas do not appear to be part of that leadership. When put to the test, they both caved in to political and financial pressure. One of them, Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas, even went so far as to admit that he had been influenced by his son, Seth, who had signed the petition asking for the veto of the religious freedom bill presented to the governor by state legislators. So much for passing your beliefs on to your children. Sadly, the governor had to admit that there is now a generational divide in his own family over LGBT rights. What is even sadder is to think that God is watching this from above, and these people, like Balaam, do not see the sword of judgment hanging over them - or their states!
In the meantime, however, the eyes of the Lord are running to and fro throughout the United States looking for those men and women of character who are not going to bow the knee to Baal. The good news is that there is leadership out there. We will soon see men and women who will present their bodies a living sacrifice, wholly acceptable unto God, no matter what the price! They have been held back for such a time as this, and in God's time, He will unveil His 21st Century Meshachs, Shadrachs, and Abednegos who will go through the fire, unwilling to worship at the altars of Man. May God hasten that day. Maranatha!
