To keep you updated, I haven't been active in the past months due to personal reasons. Yet, even in my resting, I cannot shake the nudging of the Spirit concerning a particular topic. If I were to ignore God, I would be in direct violation of the one I love and who has called me for His purpose.
One thing the Lord deals with me about is injustices. I'm not too fond of spiritual wrongs. Even the natural injustices of this world are rooted in the depths of the spirit realm. So, if you never see a real man or woman of God at the forefront, know they still are fighting. It's just an unseen war (2 Corinthians 10:4).
Some people are going to reject what I say, and that's fine. But what I have learned long ago is that when we do not attempt to try the spirit to see if it is of God (1 John 4:1), we have already hardened our hearts. In turn, we are at risk of missing God for the sake of our pride. I am no different than any other person confronted with daily truth that I will either accept or reject. Our decisions are documented by heaven and used as a witness during our judgments. The choice is ours.
I'm sure by now, you may wonder, what is she talking about?
I'm talking about this controversy concerning The President of the United States. I have seen many people mention a movement called #ChristiansAgainstTrump. I am both unimpressed and believe that this is unfair, partial, and not Biblical.
Disclaimer: To make things clear, I am not in favor of any party. So, this is not to declare my political support. I am for the Truth. I am for the advancement of God and His Kingdom.
Now, am I claiming that President Trump is a righteous man after God's heart? Certainly not, but find me a president that was. If my memory serves me correctly, presidents are politicians and not saints. So, my expectation of them is nothing less of what politicians do. Professing Christianity is different than actually being a Christian.
What I find disheartening about many Christians is that they choose battles according to their personal feelings and do not consult The Father or His Word. If the church is going to get politically involved, where were the movements during the Obama administration's advancement of homosexuality?
There wasn't any. In fact, the church embraced Obama. I believe President Obama did well in his political reign as it relates to conducting himself as a poised and intelligent leader. As a black woman, it was nice to see a black man in office. However, he did not do well concerning God and His people. And as a citizen of heaven, where color is not a factor, I was not moved.
HOMOSEXUALITY IS BIGGER THAN IT LOOKS
If you understand even a small morsel concerning the end times, one of the attributes of the antichrist is that he will be a homosexual. The Bible says, in Daniel 11:37, that the antichrist will not desire women. I've heard people argue and say that doesn't mean he will be gay. But the term eunuch is understood and expressed in the Bible. If he would have no sexual desire that would be understood as being a eunuch, but none for women is a modest phrase for describing a homosexual.
So, promoting or advancing the homosexual agenda is more than sexual freedom. It is the advancement of the antichrist, which carries a more significant impact spiritually. This post may be too much for some, but I pray God opens your understanding.
If you would be honest, during the Obama administration, we saw the rise of homosexuality like never before, and no one hashtagged "Christians against Obama." Not only in the U.S. but worldwide. The world has historically been influenced by western culture. So, though we look at this as nationally, the increase in homosexuality in the last decade has affected humanity in its entirety. Yet, instead of making a firm declaration of separation, many Christians invited Obama into churches and embraced his political agenda, although it was a direct violation and abomination to the law of the God they claim to serve.
I want to open your eyes to the bigger picture.
CHRISTIAN CONDUCT CONCERNING AUTHORITY
The Bible gives us clear instructions on how to govern ourselves concerning authority.
1 Timothy 2:1-2 - I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
Romans 13:1 - Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.
THERE IS GOOD IN THIS
One thing I can say is that the unrighteous personal decisions of our current president have not been passed on us as a law. Christians still have the liberty to live and preach Christ in this nation. Unfortunately, that will not always be the case. Sure, the president's actions and words have been disheartening. I am no wise approving or applauding the things for which he has been found guilty. But what I am saying is that if people are pulling the cards of presidents, do it for them all. Besides, every president has had an influential Christian leader in their corner somewhere, even in their wrongdoings.
Daniel and David were excellent examples of how to conduct ourselves concerning unrighteous leadership. They honored their kings (as God instructs), but if anything would cause them to go against God, they took the punishment; hence, the lion's den story. They did not compromise their beliefs and remained subject to leadership over them. They obeyed the law of God over men but did it in a way that did not cause them to displease the Lord.
Accepting our current leadership may be a harsh reality for many Christians, but God allowed Trump to win the presidency (Romans 13:1).
I would also like to present some things for you to think about: Could it be that God is using Trump to allow Christians the time to fortify ourselves spiritually before a turn of events? Are we ready to be jailed if we do not conform to the laws that will come to pass forbidding us to obey God? Are we really prepared to lay our life down for God?
That is some tough meat to digest. But this is real. There will come a time when every Christian will have to prove their confession.
I am a Christian, and I am not against Trump. I pray for Him, and I am thankful for the purpose that God allowed Him to take office. I see good in it. I saw more wickedness in the last presidential term than I do now. Yet, as the Bible instructs, I respected and continue to regard President Obama.
As the true vessels of God speak in this hour, many will reject them because their words are not popular and often uncomfortable. Nonetheless, God will be the judge and reveal all Truth.
I love you all.
