Concerning A World Turned Upside Down
Jesus when he was tempted used a very important phrase to rebuke the devil, he would say, “It is written” and quoted from the scripture. Jesus was never wrong in doing so, even as he was the “Living Word” and the Son of the living God.
Today in 2019 it is equally important in good times as well as bad times rather to lean on our own understanding we too should follow the example Jesus gave and say “It is written” and quote the Word of God over the situation in our lives.
We know we are living in the last days because the events of the book of Revelation are happening before our very eyes.
2 Timothy 3:1 – 3:5 KJV———–
1… This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2… For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3… Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4… Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5… Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
The political climate of the United States is a testament to the fact that when Christians humble themselves before God and pray, God sends forth the answer according to HIS plan and HIS will. In our case God’s plan is not man’s plan because God’s ways are higher than man’s ways.
There are many self-righteous people and those who call themselves Christians who have not asked God nor sought his advice in our politics because they are too busy trying to guess what and if God is doing.
Looking back over the past 3 years the world of American politics has been knocked down time and time again. It is no longer politics as usual as the deep state, or as President Trump so rightfully called it “the swamp” is falling apart faster than a parachutist without a chute. But believe it or not God has a plan for America and did not choose a “religious leader” type in order to show himself.
Anyone familiar with the bible can see that God uses a bit of humor in dealing with his creation – Man. God made a statement in choosing POTUS #45. Keep in mind God can and does everything for a purpose and God choose Isaiah 45 to illustrate that purpose.
Now before you go off and scream “Trump’s a lying, low down dirty dealing, filthy rich billionaire playboy who is in love with himself” or some such rantings let me break it to you as gently as I can, Trump is a sinner. Just like you and I. Trump isn’t perfect (Jesus is the only one who was), but Trump is perfect for the job that God has for him at this place and time.
We acknowledge that the world has been turned upside down, so what better way to address that topsy-turvy and self-righteous attitude of American politics than to bring a “junkyard dog” scrapper into the White House. God could have brought a Billy Graham type Christian to become the spiritual leader in Washington, but choose instead to bring someone who would wield a sword to take down the spirit of Political Correctness that has taken over this nation and God choose to do it his way (as is his custom).
What you and I see happening today is the age old battle of evil pitting itself against good (God). If you have read the end of the book (Revelation) you will find that God won that battle a long time ago on Calvary when Jesus was crucified, died and raised from the dead for the sins of the world (yours and mine), yet the devil wages war until God says enough is enough.
It’s not about whether you or I like Donald J. Trump as a real estate developer or as President of the United States. It is God’s opinion that matters. Is Trump doing what God intended? Are the results worthy of God’s approval? Are those results helping to bring others to the salvation knowledge of Jesus Christ? One does not have to wonder, but look at what’s happening across our nation and in the world.
It’s not about Trump, but all about Jesus Christ and until God is satisfied this world is in for a roller-coaster ride of epic proportions. In order to have a front row seat one must come to know the master. The bible tells us that if you believe in your heart that Jesus Christ is Lord and confess your sins you will be saved.
Not to be an alarmist but the chaos happening throughout the world is nothing compared to an eternity without God. God is good and without God there can be no good. God is light and when taken from HIS light, there is eternal darkness.
Do you know Jesus? It’s not too late……I am the Real Truckmaster!
