Tonight, January 6, 2021, my heart is aching and my spirit is grieved. I have spent time in God’s Word and in prayer to my Lord Jesus Christ, and felt very led to sit down and write all that is in my heart to encourage those who take the time to read my blog during this terribly trying season.
Today we witnessed an event which I would call unthinkable; a group of out of control, radical people storming upon our nation’s capitol where one woman was shot and killed and four others died from medical emergencies. (Since writing this another person has died.)
Even as I write, I feel the oppression of what has happened in my nation so heavy upon me it is hard to breathe and no, I do not have Covid, thank You, Jesus. After witnessing all that took place today, you may be feeling the same. I needed to write to release my feelings and also to share what God spoke to my heart.
Back before the election, I wrote two blogs, the first was titled: The Word of God, the 2020 Election, Trump, and a Man Named Jehu. In it I wrote why I believed President Trump would be reelected in November 2020. Please feel free to read that blog before this one if you have not so you will understand all that I am about to say now.
The second blog I wrote was titled Inauguration Day 1/20/21 and the Appointed Scripture for the Sabbath 1/23/21, again, reading both blogs will give a greater understanding for this one.
I will admit, after reading the scriptures about King Jehu, I was surprised that President Trump was not reelected. I prayed, “God, your Word says that Jehu destroys the House of Ahab and all who were connected to it. Surely Trump will be elected because if he fits the spiritual template for the modern day Jehu, then he will win another four years. Biden was connected to Obama, and Obama fits the spiritual template for a modern day Joram, and Joram was part of the House of Ahab so surely Trump will defeat Biden.” When I prayed though, as I pray all my prayers, I asked that God’s perfect will be accomplished.
Just to briefly refresh, in the Bible, the man, Jehu, destroys the House of Ahab and all who were connected to him. The book The Paradigm by Jonathan Cahn is an in depth study of these scriptures. I do want to state however, that at no time in any of Jonathan Cahn’s writings did he ever prophesy that Trump would be elected for a second term. He only taught us why he was elected and the scriptures which prophesied about Trump and the works he would do for America and the relationship and position he would maintain with Israel, as President.
Then the election came and went and we all have been witnessing what has taken place since.
The first day after the election my spirit was deeply grieved and I felt tremendous sorrow for our nation as it appeared that we would be heading further into the apostasy, or turning away from God. While there is no doubt about Trump being placed in the White House by God for His first term to accomplish specific prophetical tasks, I learned from this experience I must keep my eyes and ears solely upon God and His Word to learn what His final will is about all things. Again, I want to make it very clear that I did not read anything prophetic about Trump receiving two terms in any of Jonathan Cahn’s books. Jonathan Cahn’s book The Paradigm does not glorify Donald Trump either. He simply teaches us why God chose Trump, the causes for which he was needed in both America and Israel and how these things play into the fulfilling of prophecies written centuries ago in God’s Word. Rabbi Cahn describes Trump at times as “a fighter, an enigma, controversial, and one who delayed the sealing of the judgement of God from falling upon the nation”, and he makes his case very clear that we are not to keep our eyes upon Trump or any person, but upon God at all times for all things.
The results of the 2020 election left my mind whirling and I am sure many of you felt or still feel the same way. As I have written many times before, I am not a political representative. I am a servant of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and my Father God, Jehovah, but my gifts are in other areas, I am not a prophet. I am also a registered independent voter and as I wrote in my previous blog, I had a terrible conflict within myself where Trump was concerned. When he first stepped out onto the political stage I was repelled by his harshness, he was far too abrasive and at times disrespectful for me. His words affected my spirit and troubled my heart. I found myself telling my children, “Please don’t speak like that to others. That is not how we represent Christ.”
It was because of his harshness that I didn’t take the time to always listen to him and I didn’t know all that he stood for where his policies were concerned. I was also confused as I saw so many Christian people, many that I love and respect, throwing all their support behind him and at times would defend or make excuses for his words and behaviors. Words and behaviors that did not represent Jesus Christ or the Word of God. Again, I took the matter to God in prayer and asked Him to reveal to me how it was that He could choose such a man to accomplish what He wanted done in the White House for the American Nation. God answered and led me to the books of Rabbi Jonathan Cahn. Again, Jonathan Cahn’s books teach us the scriptures as to why Trump and others who have led our nation have done so, but he did not predict a second term election and he teaches us to keep our eyes on the Only Savior of America and the world, Jesus Christ.
It wasn’t until I began devouring Rabbi Cahn’s books and teachings that I finally understood why God would choose such a man to do His work. I won’t go into the details of the teachings, there is too much to tell. I will just highly recommend you to get all of Jonathan Cahn’s books. Don’t miss any of them, they are all so important and relevant. You won’t regret reading them. They are not conspiracy theories or the writings of a radical of any kind. They are writings divinely appointed by God, warnings of the times, all proving that the prophecies of the Old Testament are being fulfilled, we are living in the days of the book of Revelation and time is of the essence. Johnathan Cahn shows us how our nation is turning from God, the importance of our return to Him and what God’s Word says will take place in our nation if we don’t.
I encourage you to take your time to read them, ponder the teachings and study them with your Bible. They will not only enlighten you personally for your spiritual walk, they will also give you clear understandings for events that are taking place in the world, on the leaders in our nation, and events of warning that have been taking place for the past twenty years and more.
What I learned from these books was that Trump being placed as the American President wasn’t about who he was as a man, but the works that God wanted accomplished through him. For Israel, Jehu was that man, and for America in 2016, Trump was that man. It was not about his personality, it was about his policies.
After the 2020 election, I began to pray and I kept going back to 2 Kings chapters 9 and 10 to read aloud to the Lord about the man named Jehu who was chosen to destroy the House of Ahab.
In the book of 2 Kings chapters 9 and 10, we are taught that Jehu, a captain of an army who was harsh, abrasive, and had only ruled within the ranks of his armies but never ruled a nation or even governed over a city or town, was anointed King over Israel for the purpose of destroying the House of King Ahab. Again, for an in depth study on all that took place, I recommend The Paradigm by Jonathan Cahn to you, but in a word, what happened was Jehu destroyed the Baal gods in Israel.
The Queen Jezabel, who was a Baal worshipper from Phoenicia, had married King Ahab, ruler of Israel. Ahab knew of the teachings of God, Jehovah, but he wasn’t a strong believer or follower. Ahab allowed Jezebel to influence him to take God out of Israel. She drove out the prophets and enforced that the god Baal would be the god of the land.
It is important to understand that worshipping Baal not only went against God, Jehovah’s first commandment of having no other God but Him, but Baal worship was carnal and immoral in every aspect. To gain favor from the Baal gods, the people would sacrifice their own children in fire. Proving the Baals to represent nothing of good, but of evil.
I have learned the meaning of jealousy when translated in the Hebrew language means: the fear of losing something of value. I grew up hearing the word jealousy as a dark spirit. To have a spirit of jealousy was to have an evil spirit, which didn’t make sense to me because all through the Bible you can find scriptures which describe God as a “jealous” God. Then, I learned from Pastor Bill Borinstein a man raised in the Jewish faith who became a follower and pastor of Christ, that the Hebrew translation of jealousy is “the fear of losing someone of value“. Knowing this Hebrew translation of the Word really helped me tremendously. It blesses me now to understand God’s meaning of jealousy and that He is jealous for me. It is the word envy which is connected with an evil spirit because it’s definition is: a feeling of discontented or resentful longing aroused by someone else’s possessions, qualities, or events and we all know that envy can lead to terribly destructive behaviors.
Knowing our God loves us so much that He is jealous of losing us is a powerful and beautiful thing. It is also why His first commandment is “Thou shall have no other gods before me.” (Exodus 20:2 and Deuteronomy 5:6.) He loves us more than we can fathom and He doesn’t want to lose us. He wants us to have a close relationship with Him, even closer than an earthly father with his children.
Now, can you imagine how brokenhearted and angry God was with the Israelites? After He declared them His chosen people, saved them from slavery, and delivered them into the promised land, He sees them not only completely abandon Him and His Word. He sees them begin worshipping the Baals, becoming so mentally and spiritual sick that they would sacrifice their precious children in fire to gain the favor of their false Baal god.
Let’s just say, this didn’t go well for Israel.
The killing of their children and the carnal sins the children of Israel were engaging in daily, openly, and often publicly in the Baal temples, among other sins was what brought the judgement of God, Jehovah, and the destruction of the nation of Israel down upon them–not once, mind you, but three different times! God would forgive them, restore them to their land, then new generations would arise and stray from God, judgement would come and then destruction, but none of those times of judgement and destruction came to Israel without warnings. God is a merciful, loving God and He warned them over and over and over again through the scriptures, through the words of the prophets, through signs and events which took place, all communicating that the Israelites were not obeying Him and what would happen if they did not repent and return back to Him.
Just as God warned Israel, God has been warning America for the past twenty years.
So, how did Jehu destroy the House of Ahab? He destroyed the temples of Baal and brought an end to the sacrificing of children in the land.
Now, let’s look at how that compares with President Trump. You might be thinking, you crazy lady, Americans don’t sacrifice their children in fire. No, but there have been over 61 million abortions performed here. That’s not even including the other countries certain American Presidential administrations influenced to make abortion legal in their countries, sadly, 61 million and counting is just America’s tally.
Jehu destroyed the Baal temples, which means he brought an end—temporarily, but an end for a time to the killing of innocent children. Jehu did not stop the judgment of God from falling upon Israel but his actions delayed it.
Jehu chose as his “right hand man” a holy man named Jehonadab, son of Rechab who was a true follower of God and well respected in his community. This fits the description of Vice President Mike Pence. But Jehu was described as having great “zeal” for God, Jehovah, and the Bible says in 2 Kings 10:29 “Jehu did not turn away from the sins of Jeraboam the son of Nebat, who had made Israel sin, that is, from the golden calves that were at Bethel and Dan.” I am not as scholarly as most in the Word, but I do know that this sin was something which was recognized as a national sin, allowing the golden calves to remain in Israel was to allow another god in the land which still displeased and disobeyed God. I do not know what the exact connection there might be on this matter between Jehu and Trump, only to show that Jehu was not considered a holy man. He was obedient to the task he was given by God to destroy the Baals and slow the judgement upon Israel.
While there were no Baal temples in America to be destroyed, though two Baal temples were destroyed by ISIS right as President Trump took office, (also in the Paradigm) Trump was given three divine opportunities to nominate three Supreme Court Judges who possibly could be the ones to help over turn Roe Vs. Wade. Just think about that for a moment. Three Supreme Court Justices had to be replaced within a timespan of four years. Here are some documented facts I found listed on ballotpedia.com on the history of judges being replaced in our nation:
“As of January 1, 2021, President Donald Trump (R) had made 234 Article III judicial appointments—three supreme court justices, 54 appellate court judges, 174 district court judges, and three judges on the Court of International Trade. That ranked him second among all presidents since Jimmy Carter in the total number of appointments, second in appellate court appointments, and second in district court appointments through December 31 of the fourth year of a president’s term.“
That is incredible and I believe the timing and the people appointed to the Supreme Court was orchestrated by the mighty, all powerful hand of God, Jehovah.
If we return to story of Jehu and how he accomplished destroying the House of Ahab, it was done by overturning the nations law to allow innocent children to be killed. Could it be that by President Trump’s Supreme Court Justices, who are not in favor of abortion, Trump did fulfill the purpose of God when it comes to abortion? Could it be that in the days ahead, we will see this Supreme Court reverse the law of allowing innocent babies in America to be killed by abortion? Is that how Trump, like Jehu, brings down the “Baals” in America?
It is definitely something to think about and more importantly to pray about.
Another important factor of President Trump’s administration was to take the restrictions off Christians that had been put into place by the Obama administration which were upon the foundation built by the Clinton administration. For facts and dates on all these occurrences I again direct you to the book The Paradigm by Jonathan Cahn or just Google them. Until I read The Paradigm, I had no idea that Obama had put so many restrictions on Christians and the Word of God in our nation. The documented facts of it all will shock and sadden you if you love Jesus, but you must learn about it so that you use the power of prayer against such actions, actions which will certainly come to Christians and Jews in the future.
You might be saying, “Yes, I concede that those things took place under the Trump administration. So why then did God just allow, as I am writing this, Joe Biden to become President? Yes, the time is now 1:27am January 7, 2021 and I just witnessed the sealing of the electoral college votes and listened to Vice President Mike Pence declare Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, President and Vice President of the United States.
I also witnessed the declaration of the two democratic senators in Georgia named as the winners of those races.
In this moment, my human mind would agree with you that it is very hard to understand why God would now suddenly allow all these things to take place in our government and with the leaders which are now established, who will certainly pick up the and pass the batons of apostasy to run and spread through our nation against God, Jehovah and Jesus Christ His Son, when so much progress was being made for the nation to return to God, Jehovah.
I am taken back to the very important part of Jehu’s story which was that the nation of Israel did not fully turn back to God. Yes, Jehu had zeal for God. Yes, he stood up for those who believe in and serve God and he did this with a God fearing man Jehonadab, by his side, a man like Mike Pence. Jehu delayed the judgement of God from falling upon them, but when you read the story of Jehu in 2 Kings chapters 9 and 10 and also in 2 Chronicles 22 you do not read where Israel fully returned back to God.
After I wrote and published my first two blogs, my husband reminded me about another teaching on Jehu which was not found in 2 Kings or 2 Chronicles. I mentioned it briefly in my previous blog. Here is the very important truth found in Hosea 1:4 “And the Lord said to him, “Call his name Jezreel, for in just a little while I will punish the house of Jehu for the blood of Jezreel, and I will put an end to the kingdom of the house of Israel.“
After reading that verse the question comes to mind, “Why would God punish Jehu and his house, when Jehu did what he was told? The answer, according to the scriptures, was because Jehu did more than God told him too. This verse was brought again to my attention by my husband, Josh, who has struggled with Trump’s words and actions as a man. Biblical fact: Jehu was sent by Jehovah to destroy the House of Ahab and the Baal temples and gods. But Jehu took his spilling of blood much farther than God commanded him. He was brazen with his killing and God was not pleased with the excess blood Jehu shed in Jezreel.
We learn from this and other verses that Jehu had not completely surrendered himself to the will of God.
Is this the reason why God has not restored President Trump for a second term? I do not know the answer, only God knows. I felt it was something important to pray about.
In addition to this, God began to speak to my heart about the nation’s apostasy as a whole. The word apostasy means: the abandonment or renunciation of a religious or political belief and of course, in this context, I mean it for the apostasy from God, Jehovah and Jesus Christ. Trump being placed in the White House may have accomplished some of the tasks God wanted complete in our nation, but there is clearly no return back to God as a nation. In fact, things keep getting worse.
Donald Trump is not responsible for the hearts of the American people to choose God. It is up to each and every individual to make that personal choice and God gives us free will to make it. God wants us to choose Him because we love Him and Jesus stands at the door of our heart and knocks like the perfect Gentleman that He is. As the years have progressed, we can clearly see that America is not, on a whole, moving to return to God but away from Him. So now, I must ask more questions. Given our nations history with having men who held God’s Word in the highest place of authority and tried to honor Him through their leadership, would President Trump have turned the tide of the election by leading with a sound, evident Godly example in his words and fruit? Again, only God knows the answer to that question.
Americans have had Godly men in office to lead by example with their words and actions. God blessed their hands and minds and they accomplished incredible works for the American nation and for other nations. We know Jehu and Trump delayed judgement from falling on their nations because of the killing of the unborn. Then there were the issues of the people of the nations turning away from God. Jehu and Trump both had great zeal for God and their works opened up a spiritual window, which allowed the people of the nation time to return to God. I, personally, am very thankful for this window of time to keep spreading the good news of Jesus Christ to whoever will listen. I keep telling my children, “Presidents are temporary, Jesus is forever.” So we don’t want to lose ministry opportunities because of politics which also are temporary.
If you read the book The Oracle, you will see how God moves leaders into and out of position worldwide to fulfill His scriptures, commands, and prophecies regarding Israel, His chosen people. This brings me to another important task that President Trump accomplished and one of the very reasons God placed him in the Oval Office. The book The Oracle explains it in excellent detail, but to sum it up, moving the Capitol of Israel back to Jerusalem had to happen to fulfill the scriptures pertaining to the year of the Jubilee in the Bible. Jonathan Cahn’s book The Oracle teaches about the year of the Jubilee in great detail.
The relationship America has with Israel must also be maintained. We are also connected to Israel by more than just one country supporting another in being allies, but because of those who dedicated this land to God– and I don’t mean only those who are considered our “Founding Fathers”, I mean even farther back than that. The Pilgrim’s, they dedicated and spoke the same prayers over American as Moses spoke over the nation of Israel. It was dedicated to God, Jehovah to be a light to the darkness. A city upon a hill, which is what God commanded us to be, a light in the darkness. Ronald Reagan declared agreement to this in his famous “City Upon the Hill” speech. So there is a powerful, supernatural, spiritual connection between the two nations.
Still, America determines their “kings”, our Presidents of the United States, not by declaration but by vote and something very powerful keeps coming into my mind. God gives us free will to choose Him and that doesn’t just mean through our personal acceptance as our Lord and Savior. It also means in our land, through our votes of our leaders and the laws which are created here.
The votes of the American people are cast with their personal feelings and beliefs. What is in their heart is what leads to their vote. There is, of course, the great dispute that this was a fraudulent election. I cannot speak to either side on the matter because I only know what I am told and have no firsthand proof or evidence of anything. Because I do not know what is truth, it is a matter I have given to the hands of God. God knows the absolute truth about this validity of this election and if there is fraud that He wants revealed, we can pray He will reveal it.
Then, something else came to me, again, something very strong and very powerful. A missed opportunity that might not have changed the outcome of the election, but certainly would have been incredibly powerful, spiritual moment, one very pleasing to God.
In my blog titled: Inauguration Day 1/20/21 and the Appointed Scripture for the Sabbath 1/23/21 I write about a scripture that will be read by Jewish Rabbi’s all over the world on the Sabbath Day after the American Presidential Inauguration. It is 2 Chronicles 30:1-12
“Hezekiah sent word to all Israel and Judah and also wrote letters to Ephraim and Manasseh, inviting them to come to the temple of the Lord in Jerusalem and celebrate the Passover to the Lord, the God of Israel. 2 The king and his officials and the whole assembly in Jerusalem decided to celebrate the Passover in the second month. 3 They had not been able to celebrate it at the regular time because not enough priests had consecrated themselves and the people had not assembled in Jerusalem. 4 The plan seemed right both to the king and to the whole assembly. 5 They decided to send a proclamation throughout Israel, from Beersheba to Dan, calling the people to come to Jerusalem and celebrate the Passover to the Lord, the God of Israel. It had not been celebrated in large numbers according to what was written.
6 At the king’s command, couriers went throughout Israel and Judah with letters from the king and from his officials, which read:
“People of Israel, return to the Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, that he may return to you who are left, who have escaped from the hand of the kings of Assyria. 7 Do not be like your parents and your fellow Israelites, who were unfaithful to the Lord, the God of their ancestors, so that he made them an object of horror, as you see. 8 Do not be stiff-necked, as your ancestors were; submit to the Lord. Come to his sanctuary, which he has consecrated forever. Serve the Lord your God, so that his fierce anger will turn away from you. 9 If you return to the Lord, then your fellow Israelites and your children will be shown compassion by their captors and will return to this land, for the Lord your God is gracious and compassionate. He will not turn his face from you if you return to him.”
10 The couriers went from town to town in Ephraim and Manasseh, as far as Zebulun, but people scorned and ridiculed them. 11 Nevertheless, some from Asher, Manasseh and Zebulun humbled themselves and went to Jerusalem. 12 Also in Judah the hand of God was on the people to give them unity of mind to carry out what the king and his officials had ordered, following the word of the Lord.”
I had a beautiful idea of President Trump reciting this scripture which lead me to write the blog about the inauguration. Now, I wonder if my vision wasn’t of Trump reading the scripture at the inauguration, but if the timing for this scripture was for him to read it at his “Save America” rally? Would it have changed the outcome for Congress and the sealing of the electoral college votes? I don’t know. But I know for certain it would have been very pleasing to God, Jehovah, for Trump to stand before those who had gathered with him and read those powerful passages from God’s Word encouraging the people to “return to God”.
I believe that Donald Trump did fulfill purposes while in office that God had for him and although I truly thought he would remain in office to continue that work. it that doesn’t mean that God’s Word was wrong. It means I was. God’s Word is perfect and true. God’s timing is also perfect though we do not always understand why He does the things the way He does or why He sometimes waits years or even decades to do them. Still, God’s Word and timing are perfect and true. Always. So just because Trump didn’t get elected for a second term, doesn’t mean he didn’t fulfill God’s plan, or perhaps his second term is going to be placed in a different time. Only God knows what His plan is and we must trust that He will reveal it to us as He wills.
After the election, God reminded me of Isaiah 55:8-9 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” I also keep having this verse come to mind: Psalm 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God.”
Perhaps this election was for us who believe and follow God, a test. A test to see that we do need to stop, be still and wait to see what God wants to accomplish. God’s perfect will being done is always what is most important.
Another thought I wanted to share was a scripture that God led me to post on all my social media sites, Isaiah 43:16-19 “Thus says the Lord, who makes a way in the sea and a path through the mighty waters, Who brings forth the chariot and horse the army and the power…do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a NEW thing! Now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”
I believe we are entering a powerful season where we are going to see God move in ways we never imagined! This was another reason I believed Trump would remain in office. I kept feeling led, and have heard many other believers state they feel the same, that in the next four years we are going to enter into time of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit like we have never seen before. For my earthly mind, I thought that meant Trump would be in office to protect the Christians during that season. But God doesn’t need Trump in the White House to pour out His Spirit! He can do that however and whenever He wants without the help of man! After all, none of us were there when He created this universe and all that it in it! God is God and can do anything! Matthew 19:26 “With God ALL things are possible!”
Jesus could come before I am finished writing this blog, only God knows the time of His Return. We are not guaranteed any amount of time, God holds the number of our days. So we must be thankful for everyday He blesses us with and use everyday He gifts us to do our best to serve Him. And in that thankfulness, let’s live in the joy of revival! Revival for Israel! Revival for God’s church! Revival for the hearts of His people all over the world, and revival in places with people who never knew God before!
This belief also revealed something to my heart and what I am about to say, I say as presenting information on my opinion and not in the form of judgement. My husband and I have had many discussions about how there are people, like us, who struggled with Trump’s words and at times actions, but had learned why God had allowed him to take office in 2016. However, during that time, we personally witnessed other people who had taken their support for Trump to a totally different level. It appeared through their words and their actions that they had shifted their eyes to be fixed upon the President to change the state of the nation in ways only God could do. Instead of keeping their eyes fixed upon Jesus, their words and actions displayed more importance of their focus being upon Trump as the Savior of America. But there is only One Savior for America and all the nations of this world, and that Savior’s name is Jesus Christ.
It is important for me to make myself clear that I am not categorizing these people with those the world witnessed on
January 6, 2020 who stormed the Capitol. That group does not represent, overall, the people who supported Trump. Those people are of a different mentality than who I am speaking about. I know personally many people who support Trump that would never ever think of doing something like what took place in our Capitol. Not ever! I am talking about the people who support Trump as good citizens can and have. I have felt, and so has my husband, that we have been crying out during these past four years for people to keep their eyes upon Jesus, not Trump. For those of us who claim Christ’s name as a Christian, we can never allow the actions or words of any man to infiltrate our hearts, minds and spirits to the point where we would ever make ourselves unapproachable about God or become a poor representation for the love of Jesus Christ and His message of love.
Yet, this did happen. It was as if because people knew God placed Trump in office, it gave them permission to talk or act like he did. Like it made it okay, but words and actions that do not represent the love of Christ should not be an example for a person who claims Christ and wants to follow Him. We listen to Jesus. We follow Jesus. We speak and act like Jesus. Jesus was a perfect man, I don’t care what Don Lemmon or Chris Cuomo say. He was perfect, is perfect and is the perfect example for us all. Of course, we are human and will make our mistakes, but Jesus is always the example we should follow. God’s Word tells us we are to be separate from the world, not be like it. If we don’t separate ourselves from those in the world who do not know Jesus, how will they recognize Him in our lives? How will they recognized Him anywhere?
Jonathan Cahn recognized the same thing Josh and I did about Trump and people looking to him to fix our nation. All through his books he constantly reminds people to constantly to keep their eyes focused upon the TRUE King, Jesus Christ. He also sent a message of peace to calm the anger of people in the nation before anything happened with the attack on the Capitol through a short but powerful message which I will place at the end of this blog. He knew something was brewing and called for people to turn their eyes and voices to God. I highly recommend you to listen to the wise and encouraging words of Jonathan Cahn as he directs us to the Word’s of God, Who is and forever will be sovereign.
I have said to so many people, “American Presidents will come and go, but Jesus is forever. His love is eternal and our main goal as His servants are to draw people closer to Him. But how can that be possible if we are disgracing others because they believe differently on political issues? If we mock them, make fun of them, or belittle them, why would they ever want to listen to us about the love of Jesus?” The answer is simple. They won’t.
So let me make myself very clear about who I am.
*I am first and foremost, a servant of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
*I want to make sure that I do not follow after the words and ways of man, but after the examples of Jesus given to us in God’s Holy Word.
*I want to make sure that I do not isolate myself from those who oppose my beliefs or are different from me because I have no idea who God wants to bring to my life so that I can minister His love to them.
*I want to make sure that my political beliefs do not cause me to be cruel to others so that they won’t listen to me when I want to tell them about the love of Jesus.
*And I want to be God’s hands extended to share that love to all His children, no matter what their color, creed, sexuality, faith or political party. This is why I believe God has always kept me as an independent American, so that I can reach everyone. This is my calling, to please God first and always. I am human just like anyone else. I get upset and hurt like anyone else and I make mistakes like anyone else, but everyday I get my eyes focused upon Christ so that tomorrow, I can try and do a better job at representing Him as He rightly deserves.
I felt it important to state that because the thought did come to me today in prayer that perhaps one of the reasons God did not allow President Trump to remain in office is because there were too many people with their eyes fixed upon him instead of having their eyes fixed upon God to restore the nation.
As we move forward into this new year, I want to encourage you strongly in the Lord! Do not give up hope!
Do not think God has abandoned us! Keep your eyes firmly fixed upon Him and His Word! God never fails! Although we might not understand what is happening with the leadership in this moment, I hear the words of Jesus in my heart saying in John 13:7 “Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.”
Yes, we have a Democratic House of Representatives for the American government.
Yes, the world also woke up to a Democratic Senate.
Yes, the world woke up to a Democratic President and Vice President.
But NEVER forget! The world woke up to God, Jehovah and His Only Son Jesus Christ on their Thrones!
God IS sovereign! And anytime you feel like you are losing hope, turn off your news, close the social media sites, and get out the Word of God. Listen to the Words of God, not man. Stop focusing your eyes upon man and keep them firmly, locked in place upon Christ Jesus!
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not to thine own understanding, but in all thy ways, acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy path.” Proverbs 3:4-5
There are things being planned by those who now have the power in the government which will greatly affect the Christian, Catholic and Jewish peoples, things like the Equality Act and previous actions put in place by the Obama administration which could be reimplemented in the Biden administration against believers obtaining freedoms that the Constitution clearly provides. True, Joe Biden is a Catholic man, but he plans to reinstate federal funding for abortions and also wants to codify Roe vs. Wade into the Constitution. We cannot rely on man to help our nation, we can only rely on God and return to Him for help in our land.
Again, don’t lose hope! We can battle these things through prayer! I also strongly encourage you to pray daily for Israel, if you feel led, give to different Israeli ministries and also to bless the Jewish people in your communities. God’s Word tells us in Genesis 12:3 “I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” I have heard Joe Biden state that he holds to the same thoughts and ideas about Israel as Obama did. We can pray that his heart can be changed about his feelings toward Israel and if they are not, then make sure your family’s stances are firmly placed with Israel and pray for all those who believe and uphold God’s Word and stand with God’s chosen people so that any further shakings or judgements that come upon our nation during this Biden administration, will not fall upon the righteous. The Word of God is full of scriptures that prove God will protect those who fear and serve Him and stand with Israel.
I do encourage you to learn about these things which have been spoken as part of a Biden administration and the acts Congress has on their agenda, but do not be afraid! God says to you today in 2 Chronicles 20:15
“Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude for the battle is not yours, but God’s.”
There will come more shakings. The Shemitah year is coming. It will be from September 2021 to September 2022. I recommend to you reading “The Year of the Shemitah” by Jonathan Cahn to learn what the Shemitah year is and be prepared to honor it as God has written so that you will be blessed.
It is also important that we remember, if we completely turn against those who oppose us, how will we ever be able to share with them the Gospel and love of Jesus? Do not look at any people as an enemy to destroy. Always remember when you encounter someone who believes differently than you what is written in Eph. 6:12 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against a spiritual wickedness in high places.“
I had been sent a video on a teaching about the courses of action that Vice President Mike Pence could take in regards to sending electoral college votes back to their states. I thought it interesting and I shared it with a couple of friends, but I felt a great peace come over me when I heard his statement of the course of action that he decided to take to uphold the Constitution. The Holy Spirit whispered to me during that time that this was an example he set to his fellow colleagues because, in the days ahead, there are going to be those who will try to implement laws about going personal faiths and beliefs which will, in turn, go against the Constitution. The example needed to be set from a man who had the election to lose by standing with the Constitution. I have respect for Mike Pence and how he handled the events which unfolded in the Senate. I have heard some terrible, wicked slanderous conspiracy theories out there about Mike Pence from those who are angry that he didn’t do more for the election. I will not be part of repeating conspiracy theories and from what I have seen from Mike Pence, I think him to be a man who works with integrity and desires to please God. I will keep him and his family in my prayers.
I also would like to make one more very important point. If you have been discouraged in your faith because of all that has taken place with leaders, elections, or things that pastors or others have said during this time. Please remember, God loves you and He did not do or say anything to discourage you. His Words, thoughts, feelings, commands, desires, joys, everything that He wants to tell us in His Word. If you are discouraged, break out the Word of God and let Him speak to you directly, always and for all things. Remember His great love for you and don’t prevent yourself from having a relationship with the One who Created you and the One who died for you because of the words or actions of humans.
In closing, I want to thank you for taking the time to read this blog. I hope that it might be a positive word of encouragement to you during these trying times. Do not lose heart and keep praying for God’s perfect will to be accomplished in our nation and in Israel. Keep praying, as I am, for wisdom, guidance and protection for the days ahead. God is in charge and always will be. Let’s keep our eyes upon Him, listen to His Word and see what He does! Always remember, those who so strongly oppose you, Jesus loves them. He died for them and they are the ones which we are called to reach. They are those of the Great Commission that Christ called us to. They are the harvest we are to bring into our Heavenly Father’s House.
I also want to thank President Trump and Vice President Pence for the good works and policies that they did in our nation which to fight against abortion, to fight for the rights of Christians and God’s Word, to choose God fearing judges and to recognize Jerusalem as the Capitol of Israel. Thank you for standing up for God to remain in America. I believe it is because of these things that the judgement for America has been delayed and I will use the window of time given with every part of my being to tell people that Jesus LOVES them!
I still have hope for America and I feel God is giving us, and all nations in the world, opportunity to reach His children like never before. We must be ready to be part of this revival. We must empower ourselves in daily prayer, fasting, worship, giving, loving, reading, studying, memorizing, and meditating upon God’s Word! We must be obedient to go where and when He says go. We must be willing to look at each and every human being with what I call Jesus Vision and see the value of the souls that He loves and died for in every person. We must stand up when the lawmakers say that they are going to implement laws which go against the Word of God, and we must do so while representing God well with our words and our actions.
My prayers for the nation, for President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence will continue along with the new President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. I will pray for all Congress members and the Supreme Court, for all the state legislatures for God to guide and speak to them. I will also pray daily for the nation of Israel that God’s perfect and divine will is accomplished each and everyday.
I love this country and the people in it. That is the best I can do for our nation.
