Brothers and Sisters,
I have seen professed believers on both sides of the conflict surrounding President Trump. Both sides believe they see the Truth. So, what are those in the True Remnant to take away from this situation?
Well, the first thing is to acknowledge that we are all human and, as humans, we are prone to giving in to sin. This means we can make mistakes in our judgment of others. But this is not the question at hand. If you are a true disciple, then you have the Holy Spirit dwelling within you. If the Spirit is in you, then He will trouble you regarding your sin. This includes incorrect opinions. If we side with something that is not true, the Spirit will try to get us to see that we are on the wrong side of right. The trick here is to know how to discern between our own deceptive desires and the True voice of the Spirit. So, how do we do that?
Well, this is why the Lord gave us His Word: so we can know what He says is True and Righteous. By holding up what we feel is a prompting by the Spirit to the written Word, we can better check that prompting, and help us determine whether or not it is truly the Spirit, or our own desires deceiving us. But note: unless we have truly surrendered to the Lord, and have made Him our Master, then we will not be able to discern between what the Word truly says and what we wish it to say.
So, assuming that we are a part of the True Remnant, then what does the Word teach us that we can use to help us determine which side of the conflict surrounding President Trump is true and which is false?
Well, first, the Word tells us that those who deceive are children of Satan, not YHWH. So, which side deceives?
Second, the Word tells us that those who practice lawlessness are of Satan, not YHWH. So, which side has been practicing lawlessness?
Third, the Word tells us those who live by violence are of Satan, not YHWH. So, which side has advocated and supported violence?
Fourth, and last, the Word tells us that those who destroy are of Satan, not YHWH. So, which side has advocated and supported destruction?
OK, so far, both sides of this conflict can read these four teachings and conclude that the other is guilty. Nothing here will provide certainty. Why? Because a person who tries to tell the truth, obey the law, uphold the law, live peacefully and to build up and not destroy can still reject YHWH. Just because someone does these things, it does not mean that person is of YHWH.
At this point, it may sound as though I am talking in circles and not offering any help in evaluating the subject at hand. But I had to discuss these foundations before I can build upon it. Now that I have, let’s look at a few things we know and hold them up against the teachings of Scripture.
To the best of our knowledge, has President trump demonstrated — factually — that he lives by deception? If he does, I have not seen the proof. But I know that Joe Biden has been caught lying many times in his political career. He also got caught deceiving people during his recent campaign (he repeatedly denied saying things he was on video saying, he denied he would impliment policies that he is now advocating, and he constantly hinted that Harris was the true candidate).
To the best of my knowledge, Trump has not lived outside the law (civil laws). Yes, he has violated the Constitution on a few occasions (i.e. banning bump stocks), but I have not seen the evidence that this is how he lives his life. However, Joe Biden has a 40+ year record of lawlessness (examples would includes Biden’s part in the fake Russiagate attack on Trump, his corruption in Ukraine and in China).
To the best of my knowledge, President Trump has not advocated nor defended violence. Joe Biden has advocated violence (not only has Biden defended the ANTIFA and BLM violence, he also said he would use force to remove President Trump from office).
To the best of my knowledge, President Trump has not tried to destroy anything, but this cannot be said about Joe Biden (not counting his support of the riots, he has been a pivotal player in the destruction of our Constitution).
Again, I know that there will be professed believers who will disagree with me on these points. The problem, however, is that nothing I just listed is a matter of my opinion. These are actually facts, and they can be verified. But a person has to see, hear and obey Truth to see that these are facts, and Truth is of YHWH. Here is the warning for all of us who profess to be disciples of Yeshua: if we claim to believe, but we believe Trump is the one guilty of deception, lawlessness, violence and destruction, then we have been deceived!
At this point, if you are one of those who think that Trump is in the wrong here, I would beg you to hit your knees in prayer, read your Scriptures and beg the Lord for correction, because I am not wrong here. I do not think Trump is perfect or righteous. I even have questions about his faith. But I know Truth when I see it, and I know that Trump has not been the one deceiving us, living lawlessly, nor has he been advocating violence or destruction. I know this is all true, not because of my judgment, but because the Scriptures tell me so. This is why I know that those who profess to believe but who stand with Biden are deceived. The question then is, can and will you accept correction? If not, well, again, I beg you to search the Scriptures for what that means for you. What the Scriptures teach about those who refuse correction holds eternal ramifications.
Let those who have ears to hear, hear.
This is from a Facebook post, but it drives home the spiritual point I am trying to make here:
Trump said a LOT of crazy stuff in his tweets the past four years… Let’s examine them:He said: My offices are bugged. He was right.He said: The FBI, CIA, DOJ and the Obama administration were plotting against him. He was right.He said: The media both liberal and social are liars . He labeled them FAKE NEWS. He was right.He said: Russian collision was a hoax. He was right.He said: He could bring manufacturing back. He was right.He said: If we build a wall and manage immigration it will create jobs. He was right.He said: Joe and Hunter got rich off of shady corrupt deals with the Ukraine and China. He was right.He said: new trade deals would be better for the people. He was right.He said: Moving the embassy to Jerusalem would be the right decision. He was rightHe said: getting us out of un-winnable wars would create peace. He was right.He said the Clintons were corrupt. He was right. And still are!He said: locking up minority’s for decades for non violent offenses was wrong so he changed it. He was right.He said: Jobs are worth way more than welfare so he gave the people jobs. He was right.He said: our government is filled with corrupt people and he will fight to drain the swamp and right the wrongs. He is right.President Trump has been right on just about everything he said. So when he says the election was rigged I’ll bet my life on him being right. 74 million strong Sir, we got your back.
