Huckabee deceived electors


Mike Huckabee, a preacher turned politician, handily defeated Mitt Romney despite being outspent by tens of millions of dollars and deciding in the campaign’s final days to scrap television commercials that would have assailed the former Massachusetts governor.

“No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this World, that he may please Him Who hath called him to be a soldier!” (2 Timothy 2:4) Then came the illustration where Lot had become a judge in Sodom, which means a politician or a ruler there, and by being there he was actually hindering the Will of God in trying to save Sodom.

“God told him to be a soldier of the Lord, to win souls and not to save their bodies and their self-indulgent, rich, luxurious lives which have so little and no concern for the billions of poor of the World! Talk about the very elect being deceived” (Matthew 24:24).

Oh, they are so deceived. It obviously is possible. It’s as though the Lord is amazed and astonished that the elect could be so deceived, that it is possible for the elect to be so deceived. Why did the Lord give so many warnings about false christs and false prophets if it were not possible for the elect to be deceived? — When they are obviously so deceived.
