A No Holds Barred Brawl
Life on American streets is like nothing else and since our nations beginning it has always come down to a down and dirty fight. The Revolutionary War was unlike anything else. The Civil War was a war of brother against brother, a war on steroids. The war on drugs has kept law enforcement with one hand tied behind its back and the other in the courts, while the bad guys keep pumping those drugs in to cities across the nation. The war on terror is no exception. Terrorists (domestic or international) do not follow protocols for obedience to the laws of any nation; they use anything goes, a no holds barred Brawl where all the tools in the box are to be used regardless of consequences. You do not fight them being mister nice guy. Street rules call for street justice, right? Maybe not!
This war has been going on since the beginning of time. God created everything and with a purpose. One of God’s created beings decided to exalt him not equal to, but above the Creator God. So good was his plan that other beings followed him. God ejected him from Heaven above and banished him to the earth. God made this being the god of this world. He and his followers have control over things on the earth. When God created Adam and Eve the god of this world decided to separate man from God. The introduction of sin came in the Garden of Eden when they succumbed to temptation and blamed God for their troubles.
So here we are in 2019 with the blame game continuing to blame others for our own mistakes. Throughout time we see that man created situations where only God could remedy and rescue man. Today is no exception. Man created a political situation whereby men are oppressed. Crying out to the Lord for relief is what we tend to do best, when it’s the last thing we are beyond our own ability. We cry out to God to help us and we’ll be oh so good. Well God knows our hearts, our intentions and whether we are sincere or not. God is no genie in a bottle waiting for us to take the lid off.
We are in a situation where many think all is lost and the world is closing in around them. Their trust has been in man to deliver them. As men we are all in the same hole, so looking for someone in the hole with us to deliver us out of the hole is useless. The more we dig the muddier and stickier the situation gets, but we are still in the same hole with our condition becoming worse.
God alone sets up kings and rulers. God alone brings them down from their castles, thrones and lofty perches. Since the election of Ronald Reagan it looked like things began to turn around for our country and people became complacent. Every new president promised to do better and the people began once again to trust not in God but in man. There was GWH Bush, Clinton, GW Bush and Obama each promising a new start for America, yet the outcome was the same. Trusting in man became fruitless and promises made became broken promises as no viable solutions appeared to permanently fix what ails American.
After the disappointing years of Obama Christians began to humble themselves and pray, beseeching God for relief. Expecting God to send a mighty Christian warrior like King David many were truly disappointed when there appeared before them a worldly man of riches, fame and fortune one who was not worthy to loosen the sandals of Jesus. This man was not what America neither expected nor deserved surely God had made a mistake?
The audacity of Donald J. Trump to announce from the gaudy Trump Towers his intention to run for the presidency! Surly God was not in this? After all he was a millionaire real estate Mongol and flaunted his wealth for all to see. Everything was all about him and he wasn’t even a politician. The saying that God works in mysterious ways comes to mind. What America needed was a champion; a fighter; someone who would bring real solutions to nationwide problems. America needed a man of steel, not a selfish man who’s only interest was himself.
During the campaign this self-made man did and said things and made claims that were absolutely ridiculous – he was going to drain the swamp. Yeah right most American’s don’t even have a swimming pool, let alone live near a swamp. He said he was going to make America great again, like America had been great before?
His crude talk was unlike any politician before him. Oh I’m sure other politicians swore and cussed, but not in public. He began attacking other Republican candidates early on, and then went on the offensive attacking “Crooked Hillary” a term that resonated with common men and women across the nation.
Things were happening behind the scenes and the general consciences was that Hillary Clinton would become the first woman president in the history of this nation, it was a given and this worm of a man had no chance in Hades of winning the 2016 election. They were wrong. It seems that everybody was wrong.
Skipping ahead the past 3 years have been filled with manufactured hate for #45, President Donald J. Trump. It’s on all the main stream media, cable news programs and television and radio talk shows, even on social media (Facebook and Twitter) that he is a racist, a white supremacy supporter and responsible for EVERY evil that befalls every country in the world. Former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher once said, “When they attack me personally it’s because they have no political argument left.”
From my perspective the evidence of hate against President Trump leads me to the conclusion that he is the right man for the job at this time in history. It appears that God brought forth a fighter who would not give up when the going got tough. In fact, Trump gets tougher. This is a fight between evil and good. Everything known to man has been thrown against Trump, but like water bouncing off a ducks back, he counter punches just a little bit harder and with no holds barred. Trump knows fully well the stakes of his presidency is an all-out war for the very soul or existence of the United States of America.
The bible tells us there is nothing new under the sun. There is a time and a place and a season for everything. This is America’s season and Donald Trump is where God has intended him to be at this time and in this place. It’s not for man’s pleasure but for God’s glory! There are many examples in the bible where God has raised up a runt or an uneducated man or men for a specific purpose. You can read about King David, Saul or Jesus and his disciples, but I suggest reading from the book of Isaiah, Chapter 45 about King Cyrus where God raised up a man who didn’t know him, but for a specific purpose.
When the legions of hell attack you with all they have you must be doing something right and God will be pleased with the outcome that brings glory to him! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
