If My People…

Donald Trump has essentially won the Republican Party nomination, and many rejoice over this. It’s a great victory, and I have been highly critical The Donald’s opponents in this contest.

But, will The Donald really change anything?

He might make some important changes. We’ll certainly feel better about our government, should he survive to take the White House. But, there’s a far deeper issue, and it’s even connected to last week’s review of ‘The Rapture Verdict‘ by Michael Snyder.

It’s about you and me.

Remember. You can’t fix a spiritual problem with political solutions.

If My People…

Sometimes you get so caught up in a contest, that you lose perspective. I’m an old hand at losing perspective, so I know this well. And, I think that we risk doing that with Donald J. Trump.

You haven’t heard me say much about Donald Trump, and I’m not sure that I will say very much. I’m not sure that it matters. In fact, of all the things that matter most, The Donald will have very little – if any – control over.

I’m sure that Trump is a good guy. We’ve certainly heard a lot of good stuff about him. Those that know him personally have nothing but good to say about him. Even his enemies have difficulty in making criticisms stick.

He is a very likeable guy.

No High Hopes

In fact, the one he resembles the most is Ronald Reagan. Everybody loved The Gipper, and we still remember him fondly.

But, did Ronnie actually change the course that America was on?

Was the threat of the Military Industrial Complex reduced?

Was abortion eliminated?

Were the NWO Elites blunted in their power?

Was corruption reduced?

Unfortunately, the answer to all of that is NO. As much as I liked Reagan, he didn’t really change anything. At best, his presidency reduced the rate at which evil and corruption encroached upon the US government. At best.

So, I don’t really have high hopes for Trump. In fact, there is a real possibility that he isn’t quite what he seems to be. Some have shared with me the fact that he is a Freemason of very high order. Some have talked about his strip clubs and casinos. I could go on, but I won’t – because all of that is less important than something else.

How We Got Here

We are at this point in time because we – you and me – have sinned against God. We have brought sin into the church and corrupted the Body of Christ in the United States. Half of our pastors are regular consumers of pornography. The abortion rate among Christians is only a little lower than that of non-Christians. Likewise, the divorce rate is only a little lower among Christians than non-Christians.

How about tithing?

Do evangelicals share the gospel anymore?

Do we even read our Bibles?

When was the last time your pastor even mentioned the word ‘sin’?

Identical The World

Hopefully, none of you are in churches that have become corrupt. It is not my intent to call out anyone in particular, but to illustrate something important:

We have become indistinguishable from the world.

Our churches are so full of sin and corruption that they are no longer offended by the corruption of the world. We don’t know what sin is, anymore. We even enjoy the sins shown to us on TV, the Internet and through popular music. We delight in the sins of this world.

Look, sin is fun. Being Godly isn’t. Being Godly means restricting yourself, holding yourself in. It means NOT thinking or dwelling upon that which you shouldn’t. It means NOT gratifying ourselves and living for this life.

I get that, because I have the same struggles that you have. Seriously.

The Only Hope For America

But, our sinfulness has destroyed our country, and the final act of that destruction is coming. However, for those of you who think that the United States can be spared the judgment that is coming, there is really only one answer:

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

 – 2 Chronicles 7:14

If I saw THAT happening in our churches… well …I might begin to believe that Donald J. Trump might be sent by God to rescue our beloved country. But, I don’t see it, anywhere.

Last Week As An Example

In fact, what I see are people making excuses for the sin that is among us. I see adulterers allowed to lead. I see heresy preached from pulpits. I see open rebellion against God.

Last week was a small example of that.

One of the reasons why I get so upset over the Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie, is that it’s such a deliberate corruption of the Bible. The lying liars that taught this awful lie to us, reached into the guts of the Bible and ripped them out. They subverted and perverted the Bible to make it reflect a subverted and perverted truth.

The Pre-Tribulation Rapture Lie is the same message taught by Joel Osteen. Osteen tells us all that God wants you to have a good life. He says that God wants you to be happy and wealthy. He says that God wants you to be comfortable in your life.

And THAT is a lie from the pits of Hell.

God Has A Job For You

God wants you be represent HIM to a dying world. He wants you to be an EXAMPLE of truth and righteousness, and He will make you a miserable wretch – if necessary – until you are what He wants you to be. God loves you, no matter what you were, but He is not interested in seeing the precious gifts that He has given you… being buried in the ground.

God has work for you to do, and He isn’t interested in your excuses for why you won’t do it.

Read what Jesus said about the talents given to servants:


I find it interesting that this discussion about servants and rewards comes just after the discussion about the Last Days and The Rapture in Matthew 24. It’s not a coincidence, because the parable of the talents is a part of the same talk that Jesus was giving to His disciples.

Our Itching Ears

Those who have embraced the Pretribulation Rapture Lie, are doing exactly what Paul warned against:

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

 – 2 Timothy 4:3-4

Remember that Paul isn’t speaking about non-Christians. No, he’s talking about brothers and sisters in Christ.

Since the 1800s, we’ve been taught a ‘peace and safety’ fable. We’ve been taught that God would never allow us to suffer. We’ve been taught that we need never be concerned with watching and waiting. Yet, Jesus told us that we would suffer, and He commanded us watch and wait.

Suffering In Our Future

Look, I tremble at the thought of what we are about to go through. The thought of the suffering that lies before us… well …it makes me ache. I would do almost anything to avoid what is coming, but there is one thing that I would never do:

I will never knowingly twist the Bible.

I will take it for what it is, the words of God for us, and I will never knowingly allow a false teacher to make the Bible say what it does not.

We Were Chosen For Such A Time As This

You and I were chosen for such a time as this. God chose us to serve Him in this very important moment in time. It is an honor and a privilege to do so, but it requires clear vision.

If you have blinded yourself with the cares of this world, you will be unable to accomplish your appointed task. If you have lived a life of self-indulgence you will be unprepared for the difficulties that lie ahead. If this life is important to you… I shudder to think about what you will receive in the life to come.

Donald J. Trump might fix some of what is wrong with America. He might make the government more efficient. He might eliminate some of the corruption. He might do a lot of good, but he will not make a bit of difference unless something vitally important happens first:

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

 – 2 Chronicles 7:14
