At the risk of being a troll.This article is the kind of thought process that Blaine is bemoaning. Me, too. Criticize and judge and weigh my comments. Poke holes. Reject. It is all well and good. My feelings are not on my sleeve. But, there is a deep and wide sense in the church in America that something spiritually significant happened on election day and it is just bananas. To the extent of any belief in spiritual significance of the election outcome, it is the result of mixing faith in government with faith in Christ.http://www.charismamag.com/blogs/prophetic-insight/28075-prophecy-after-wicked-kingdom-toppled-jezebel-curse-broken-off-america
Jeremiah 23:16-17 New King James Version (NKJV)16 Thus says the Lord of hosts:“Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you.They make you worthless;They speak a vision of their own heart,Not from the mouth of the Lord.17 They continually say to those who despise Me,‘The Lord has said, “You shall have peace”’;And to everyone who walks according to the dictates of his own heart, they say,‘No evil shall come upon you.’”
Believers in America are living in la-la land. They are living in a dream world. Believers in America have no concept of what it is to take up their cross to follow Jesus. Believers in America want the benefits of the cross in that it will save them from their sins and the blood of Jesus will deliver them from the domain of the evil one. But Believers in America do not want the demands of the cross and that is to lay everything at the foot of the cross and be prepared to die for Jesus.When believers voted for Donald Trump they were in essence voting for Donald Trump to maintain the status quo and to continue to live out their comfort and ease in America. Yet they were delivered from Hillary Clinton and the persecutions that she would have certainly braight against the Christians. But in voting for Donald Trump they have voted to continue their prosperous lifestyle and the choke out the Life of Christ as Jesus expounds in the thorny ground hearer. American Christians will continue for a time to maintain their prosperity. But in so choosing they are rejecting The Life of Christ and the purity that will certainly come or would have come through the fires of persecution.Don Currin is right when he said that the best thing that can happen to the church in America is that she undergo the fire the persecution. I agree with this statement. But right now Satan is laughing his head off at the impotent Church in America. For surely this church that is putting their trust in Donald Trump is no threat to the kingdom of darkness. And I might add on the broad road of destruction.
