I really believe that God is backing Donald Trump’s bid to become the Republican candidate for President of the United States.
Okay, okay, relax for a moment. Take a deep breath and then continue reading.
No doubt, it’s easy for all of us to point out Trump’s flaws and his lack of Christian credentials. What you see with Trump is pretty much what you get: a seventy-year old man with swooped back hair, wearing a Brioni suit and dripping with pride, petty anger, lack of graciousness, intelligence, and bravado. He is what he is and nothing more.
Aha, so why would God back him?
Trump is the perfect tool in God’s hands to expose the Republican Party — GOP, as in God’s Own Party — to us mostly white Evangelical Christians. And oh my! Has he ever! Trump has ripped open the underside of the Republican Party and exposed the party as a bunch of lying, conniving, manipulating, money-hungry scalawags that cares little about us believers, except for needing Evangelicals to keep them feeding at the money trough.
“Deception lasts until the faith for it is all used up.” (Francis Frangipane)
We Christians should praise God for Donald Trump. We should rejoice that our eyes are opened to the whitewashed deception that is the Republican Party and our involvement with it. We should bow on our knees and repent for placing our hopes for America in the GOP. We should then say, “Lord, what do You want us to do?”
Will Donald Trump become President of the United States? Maybe, but I do not know for sure.
Will America survive?
I believe America will survive – and may even see prosperity again – for a few more years, but we need to use this time of grace to wisely prepare for the horrible times that await us. How well we and our families handle the bad times in the future depends on our preparations now.
