From the get go evangelicals were drawn to Trump. His life of immorality did not seem to bother their spiritual conscious. Big red flag goes ignored. How will our children retell the events of 2020 to their children? How will they explain what happened on January 6, 2021 – a day that will live in infamy just like Dec 7, 1941; September 11, 2001?
Evangelicals saw Trump as the man to lead the church into some kind of light, some kind of enlightenment, or some kind of revival in America and in Christian history. His followers are still convinced of that and continue to see him as their new leader. Republicans are ready to create a new party with him as their leader. They now aim their hostilities toward fellow republicans calling them traitors. Now, if these folks are Christians, Houston we have a problem. It makes no sense that a sitting president would take down his own country. God commanded us to obey our leaders, to pray for them not to engage them in the affairs of the world. Sounds like a Channing Tatum movie. Well, I can see Channing Tatum playing the vice president.
Evangelicals saw Trump as Cyrus. He came along to stop the killing of millions of innocent unborn. He came to protect gun rights. He came to make American great again. My question has always been, “What was wrong with American before? If, as Christians, we believe we live in a blessed nation, then what’s wrong with it? Are we demanding more of God? Are we discontented with all that His has blessed us with? Wandering in the wilderness, the Israelites were not content with manna, the food that God provided. They demanded meat. Well, God gave gave them quail and lots of it. I can understand people wanting to be treated with respect, with equal protection under the law, but people that want more, when they already have more than their share, that’s just not Christian like. In Christ, we are all equal, but in the world… well?
When every man feels a commitment to protect his own empire who will call out Peter’s hypocrisy? Abortion is not a Goliath. Goliath is the audacity of man to put himself above God, to say that he is greater than any man in history? Saying God Bless America is not the same as saying glory to the Lord Almighty. Praise His holy name. In my time, I have never heard those words come out of any president. Have you?
Who is Goliath, if not the man who is spouting off all his greatness, all his achievements, daring to say he has done it. He has the power to do what he wills and to make others do his bidding. Oh, that reminds of King Nebuchadnezzar. Does anyone see the writing on the wall?
Here, is yet another awakening. Now is the time for Christians to examine their walk. God anoints leaders. He has anointed the next President of the United States.
Let us pray for our new leadership. I pray that God will guide his steps. I pray that God will protect him and his team. The Scriptures tell us “Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil walketh about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”
And, “There are many plans in a man’s heart, nevertheless the Lord’s counsel—that will stand.” “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.” Lord, guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. In Christ’s name I pray. Amen
