Today in the US, we also tend to look for political redemption. The image below was originally a depiction of the Archangel Michael (I think) by an artist whose name got cropped out so rigorously that I can't find out who that is. A current presidential candidate's follower(s) photoshopped his head into the image and circulated it widely on twitter. You get the message. (Obviously, I blacked out that candidate's head here.)
Lest you think I'm belittling this candidate or his followers, let me tell you that I struggle with looking for God's hand in politics, or His favor on a particular candidate or party. I'm asking the wrong question; our redemption isn't coming that way. It has to come through our individual obedience to "the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, who dwells in unapproachable light, whom no one has ever seen or can see. To him be honor and eternal dominion."
