Hey God, didn’t You hear our prayers and prophecies on the presidential election? (Part 2)

 

Let’s step back a few feet so we can have a look at a bigger picture of what’s happening in America right now:

I am seventy-four years old and soon to be seventy-five.

You can call it pride or whatever you want, but I have always hoped to see the Lord return in my lifetime. Maybe others can relate to this same hope. But all of this was shattered to pieces when I felt the Lord speak to my heart, “I am not returning in your lifetime. Help prepare your children and grandchildren for the End-Times.”

Whatever disappointment I might have felt at the time was erased by the urgency of His words.

Many preachers talk about the “Great Falling Away” as if it will be just a slight bump in the road for the American church. After all, America has the greatest concentration of Christians within its borders compared to any other nation in the world. 80 to 100 million Evangelical Christians by many estimates. Almost thirty percent of our total population.

Let no one in any way deceive or entrap you, for that day will not come unless the apostasy comes first [that is, the great rebellion, the abandonment of the faith by professed Christians], and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction [the Antichrist, the one who is destined to be destroyed] (2 Thessalonians 2:3 AMP)

Do you actually believe the Apostle Paul was talking about a slight bump in the road when he wrote about the “Great Falling Away?”

I don’t.

It’s my belief that if we don’t take drastic steps that 50 to 75% or more of America’s Christians will abandon their faith during the soon coming End-Times period. That’s forty to seventy-five million believers turning their backs on God!

Why such a large number?

Corrie Ten Boom’s 1974 letter about the Rapture explains most of my reasoning:

There are some among us teaching there will be no tribulation, that the Christians will be able to escape all this. These are the false teachers that Jesus was warning us to expect in the latter days.

In China, the Christians were told, “Don’t worry, before the tribulation comes you will be translated – raptured.” Then came a terrible persecution.  Millions of Christians were tortured to death. Later I heard a Bishop from China say, sadly, “We have failed. We should have made the people strong for persecution, rather than telling them Jesus would come first. Tell the people how to be strong in times of persecution, how to stand when tribulation comes — to stand and not faint.”

Somehow, most American believers have swallowed the same poisonous Pre-Trib Rapture doctrine and believe we won’t suffer even though Jesus said –

For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened. See, I have told you beforehand. (Matthew 24:21-22, 25)

We believers are the elect. His warning was meant to inspire us to prepare ourselves ahead of time.

(Excerpt from my series, Will We End Up Being a Part of the Great Falling Away. You can read the whole series here.)

So, how will our Lord stir up His church to rid us of our rebellion, apathy and lethargy?

Hey God, didn’t You hear our prayers and prophecies on the presidential election? (Part 1)

 

From the beginning of Donald Trump’s presidency, I believed Trump’s time in office would be just a brief pause in America’s continuing slide down a slippery slope into a pit of godlessness and total rebellion. My greatest hope was that it would be an eight-year pause, rather than a four-year one.

But of course, there are those who disagree with me and believe America’s government can be straightened out by cleaning up the Swamp in Washington, D.C. You know, just remove the rotten eggs and replace them with godly, good eggs. And then while the saints chant, “abra cadabra Jesus loves us,” a kingdom of God based government would suddenly appear in our nation’s capital. 

The main problem with this thinking is that our governments – federal, state and local – and elected officials and judicial systems are all cogs in the world system, which is under the influence of Satan.

 Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness? (2 Corinthians 6:14 NLT)

 There is a coming time when the Lord will clean up our government and other nations’ governments, but that will be when the seventh angel blows his trumpet and all of heaven will shout, “The kingdoms [governments] of this world have become kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ and He shall reign forever and ever.” 

If we take the time to read the Book of Revelation and other end-time verses, we will discover that the Church is raptured at the last trumpet and what follows after this trumpet blast will be God’s punishments on the ungodly world system. Few will survive. Buildings, structures and mountains will be turned to rubble by earthquakes.

The Swamp will finally be removed!

Yes, at times, God does intervene in nations’ governments to advance His kingdom, in answer to prayers and because of His great mercy. But if you look at history through a long-term biblical mindset – and not a short-term American one – you will realize how history eventually conforms itself to God’s Word. It’s not about America achieving its manifest destiny, it’s all about His church becoming His bride, prepared for an awesome King.

Okay. Okay. Okay. What does this have to do with President Trump and the presidential election, right?

In August on a Zoom call, a friend prophesied to me: “You’re like a gyro that I see spinning, but it’s wobbling a little bit. Then I see the hand of the Lord touch the top of it. The wobbling is going to stop. It will then be spinning along its axis and moving and spinning the way it should under My anointing and power. If there are some things that are a little wobbly right now, God is going to set it in order and in divine alignment. I have better things for you…”

What do you do with a prophetic word like this?

Seek the Lord and ask for His insight.

Eventually, I felt the Lord told me that He was finetuning me, which of course, meant I had error in my prophetic makeup. Not only that, I felt the prophecy was meant for all of the prophetic voices in the Body of Christ.

What did this mean?

It wasn’t until I watched Amy Cony Barrett being sworn into her associate justice position on the Supreme Court on October 27th that I felt the Lord spoke to my spirit: “This is the last big thing President Trump will ever accomplish.”

“Oh dear,” I thought, “this means Joe Biden will be elected president.”

But why?

Just so you know: I wrote an article on May 2, 2020, in which I stated that I felt that  President Trump would win reelection, but the Republicans would lose the senate.
