Massachusetts voters send Washington a wake up call

In a dramatic, come from behind victory for the vacant senate seat of the late Ted Kennedy, Independent Republican Scott Brown won the right to represent the people of Massachusetts in the US Senate, the first victory for a Republican since 1972 and the seat that had been held by the Kennedys, John and Ted for almost 50 years.

Brown, a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army Reserves, ran on the issues that people seem to be worried about, taxes, health care, jobs and the external threat of terrorism on America and Brown said he will represent the people of Massachusetts against the threat of big government and increased spending.

Politicians on both sides of the aisle are taking a close look at the results of the race and trying to determine if they are in line with the people they represent or are they pressing for their own agenda in Washington.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The shocking results of the senatorial election in Massachusetts is a wake up call, but also an evidence that God has a plan for the future and He will use human government to fulfill His plan.

The politicos in Washington, D.C. and across the US woke up to a shocking result in the senatorial election in Massachusetts and many will go back to the drawing board to develop a new strategy for the future. Many political pundits will analyze and explain away the Brown victory in what should have been a shoe-in for the Democratic candidate in Massachusetts, but results still stand as they are. This shocker in the political world is a reminder that God is still in charge and according to Romans 13:1, there is no political leader elected except those who are ordained of God.

Romans 13:4 says that those in elected office are ministers of God. Genesis 9:6 is the record of how God established human government. The entire Bible is a history of how God has used human government to fulfill His will. In fact, Revelation 17:17 says that God puts in the hearts of political leaders to fulfill His will especially the prophetic scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy for the future.

Scott Brown's victory is evidence that Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
