Greater is He

Well, this is interesting (see link at the bottom of this essay). It appears Satan feels emboldened enough to reveal himself more fully about the Trump presidency.

It is no secret to anyone who understands the Scriptures that humanity is always engaged in a deadly spiritual warfare. Jesus said of the devil, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy” (John 10). And that is where America was rushing toward under the previous administration – and would have seen only more of it under a continued Democrat president, congress, and judiciary: Stolen freedoms, more death in the womb, continued destruction of the sanctity of life, of marriage, and the family.

God gave us a gracious reprieve on November 8, 2016. He answered the prayers of His children in this country (and, I imagine, around the world, too). For the first time in more than a decade, we have a White House where God has not been banished to the toilets. We have a president who calls evil what it is: evil.

And the devil doesn’t like that. No wonder he has incited his children to riot and call down death and destruction on the man God placed into our Oval Office.

Don’t misunderstand me, please. I do not believe everyone who opposes Donald Trump is of the devil. There are many, many deceived men and women who’ve been taken captive by the evil spiritual forces around us. May God open their eyes to what is really happening to them. But a large portion of Trump’s enemies know full well that our President stands against everything that they desire – that being slavery of our population (especially those who obey God’s word), the further desecration of marriage, falling prey to our nation’s enemies, and the continued destruction of the unborn. In other words, Trump opposes what Satan desires for America.

Nor do I believe Donald Trump is the messiah. President Trump is merely a tool in God’s hands – as are all of us tools in God’s hands. But from what I can tell so far about the man based on what he has ALREADY done, this man is God’s tool for the good of Americans who love this country and who love the God who established this country in 1776.

Christian, never forget: “Greater is He who is in us, than he who is in the world.” But we should not rest while Satan’s children spew their hatred from their bowels and try to conjure more evil. The weapons of this warfare are not of the flesh, but are supernaturally powerful for the destruction of evil fortresses and battle fronts.

Therefore, as the Holy Spirit tells us, “Take up the full armor of God, and having done all, “Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition” for our nation, our freedoms, our families, and for all who obey God. (see Ephesians 6)

Let me close with this from Psalm 2. King David prophesied, of course, of Messiah Jesus – but the principle therein illustrating God’s mockery of those who oppose Him are applicable to the terribly deceived souls cited in the inserted article who willingly serve the devil:

“Why are the nations in an uproar and the peoples devising a vain thing? The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers take counsel together against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us tear their fetters apart and cast away their cords from us!” “He who sits in the heavens laughs, the Lord scoffs at them. Then He will speak to them in His anger and terrify them in His fury . . . .”

Christian: This is a serious spiritual battle. Now is not the time to relax our vigilance.
