1 Thessalonians 5: 16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
I am not a political person. I am so not political that I have only voted once in the past because my mom was very persistent. Before Trump, if anyone asked me who the president was I would have given them a blank stare. The only reason I knew of Trump was because he was on that TV show where he fired people. However, the events of 2020 drew me closer to God and my desire to pay attention increased significantly.
I started to pay attention to what Trump and Biden were saying. I started to put pieces together. Like noticing that every time a BLM supporter spoke or protested they told everyone to vote for Biden. They even went out of their way to register people on the streets and had marches through towns to get people to the polls. I saw that Kamala is for full term abortions. I saw that both of them think we should pay for those abortions. I noticed that other countries even want Biden in.
I wasn’t going to vote but as I saw the violence increase and saw that the senators of those cities weren’t doing anything about it and as I saw states start to defund their police, I started to pray.
I prayed and asked God who I should vote for and he said “If Trump gets in you have more time to prepare”. So, I ran and voted for Trump. I wanted more time for people to find Jesus. I wanted people to go to Heaven. I wanted to get better prepared spiritually and physically. I wanted more time.
When Trump “lost” I got a bit mad at God and asked “why didn’t you just say something like, get ready because we are going into end times”? I thought because of the way it was phrased that meant Trump was getting in and we would have more time.
Then today I started asking God if I should even keep praying for Trump to get in? It seems hopeless at this point and then I started doubting myself and thinking that maybe I heard God wrong in the first place.
So, I told God that if I should continue to pray for Trump and to confirm that I heard him correctly, to have a Democrat rise up and object to one of these votes. Find out this afternoon that Rep. Vernon Jones switched parties today and is now a Republican. Okay, so not exactly what I asked to have happen but close enough. I also saw a video from someone saying that God is telling them that if Trump doesn’t get in the anti-Christ will rise up. Confirmation again. So I will pray deeply and continuously.
At this point it isn’t about Trump, this is about slowing down the rise of the one who seeks to kill and destroy us. This is about being obedient to our calling. Whether a miracle happens or not the message still remains the same.
