Only eighteen days remain before America votes for president in the general election. I believe the large majority of Americans have long before now made up their minds as to who they will vote for: incumbent President Donald J. Trump, or former Obama era V.P Joe Biden. Whoever wins, it will very likely produce deadly violence. But ultimately God will install His choice, for He “changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings [national leaders] and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding” (Dan. 2:21). Whether Trump or Biden wins, God’s decree for the end-times will remain. Are you ready?
Before going any further, let me specifically address professing Christians. If there’s any doubt about how you should vote, consider the facts. Your vote is not about choosing the lesser of two evils. Your vote is about choosing between life and death of infant babies made in the image of God. It’s that simple. Forget the political hyperbole. Focus on life and death. Here are the facts: Democrat candidate Joe Biden has a rabid desire to protect infant abortions. He is one hundred percent for the infanticide of the unborn, even up to the moment of birth! And his running-mate, Kamala Harris, is equally culpable of the murder of the unborn! Opposing that, President Donald Trump has unequivocally proven that he is for life of the unborn, and said he would fight for the unborn. This is why U.S. President Trump nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, and the radical murderous Left is hell-bent on destroying her! So, on whose side will you be: Satan, and death; or God, and life? Oh, you have a choice, but that choice will precede you into eternity. God said “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live” (Deut. 30:19). If you’re a true Christian, you will only vote for life!
Abortion of the infant unborn is of Satan and his demonic spirits. God created man and woman to pro-create within the bounds of holy marriage. God creates life in the womb and said “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb” (Jer. 1:5). And the psalmist said of God, “You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made…My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret…Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them” (Psa. 139:13–16).
Democrats are largely the party that vehemently demand the rights of a woman to murder her unborn infant. This amounts to nothing less than evil spirits within a person self-ascending the throne of control, as did Lucifer when he said “I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the throne of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation…I will ascend above the heights of the clouds…I will be like the Most High” (Isa. 14:13–14). And God said of such wickedness “They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons, and shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters…and the land was polluted with blood. Thus they were defiled by their own works, and played the harlot by their deeds” (Psa. 106:37–39).
The Democrat-incited violence and destruction in American cities must be stopped. But the Democrats refuse to bring in law and order; they are the party of lawlessness. The Biden-Harris ticket will only worsen the civil violence and destruction of properties being perpetrated upon the American people. But that’s what Democrats want. They stoke rebellion. They polarize people against one another with their steady stream of lies, propaganda and hostile condemnation of anyone who does not agree with their ungodly views and the UN’s New World Order agenda.
There was a time when some Democrats actually lived for “righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit” (Rom. 14:17), but those days are long gone! Today’s party of Obama, Clinton, Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, Nadler, Biden, Harris, Warren, Feinstein, and others like them who are drunk on power, incite chaos, destruction of the US Constitution, fear, civil unrest, lawlessness, and rage, where godlessness is not only fomented, but proudly defended as right and good! In a free society like the United States, people of varying religious, political and economic positions have the right to be heard. But no, the radical Left demands that everyone agrees with them.
Do you have any reservations about how or for whom to vote in this general election? If you’re a true Christian who loves God’s Word of authority you are not sitting on the voting fence. There’s only one clear choice before the American people who love decency, respect, law and order; and that choice is a vote for incumbent President Donald Trump, who strongly defends the unborn, is committed to restoring law and order, who, being a nationalist, believes in national borders, and then safeguards those borders, all of which are powerful Christian truths of God’s written Word.
Dear reader, listen, we live in absolutely perilous times. The devil and his demonic spirits being increasingly unrestrained by God, 2 Thess. 2:6–7, who has restrained Satan for millennia, is now in these last days lessening His restraint on “the rulers of the darkness of this age, [and] spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Eph. 6:12), that they might fulfill their assignment of prophetic destruction on earth and war against God, where humanity is Exhibit A, as it were. I cannot overemphasize the great need for each Christians to be certain you are dressed in the full armor of God, and prepared to defend your family and loved ones from raging evil spirits which are now multiplying on earth as the days of Noah and Lot, now present, are increasingly evident.
However, in the midst of these chaotic end-times and rapidly changing world “Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:4–7). This is as true today as it was when the Apostle Paul wrote it under inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Embrace this spiritual defense because “the time will come [and now is] when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions…fulfill your ministry” (2 Tim. 4:3–5).
Indeed, “be watchful in all things”, [emphasis added] especially in the signs of the times, and “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world” (1 Peter 5:8–9). Spend much time in prayer. Be discerning. Ask God for wisdom. Agree with and personalize Jesus’ testimony for the end-times. Have the mind of Christ. Endure mockings. Pray for unbelievers. Pray for the Church. Love God.
