THE RIGHT CHRISTIAN RESPONSE TO THE FIGHT TO DESTROY AMERICA
We are living in a peculiar time in history when the President of the United States, Donald Trump, and his supporters are essentially the underdog as elections approach, persecuted by corporate America, almost the entire government bureaucracy (including the legislative and judicial arms), the educational system and most vociferously by the MSM. The easiest way to lose a job; get blacklisted in Hollywood; be deplatformed by tech giants, like Google, Facebook and Twitter; be doxed and physically assaulted or see your property destroyed is to hold the American flag or express support for Trump. (By the way, I love rooting for the underdog.)
The aforementioned arms of society and the immediate past president, Barack Obama, have run a far-reaching subversive operation called the Resistance from the time the incumbent was elected. In fact, the groundwork for this operation was laid during the campaigns for the last presidential elections with extensive spying on the Trump campaign and his associates to acquire Intel for building what Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agent, Peter Strzok, and FBI lawyer, Lisa Page, called an “insurance policy” in case Trump won.
#Obamagate as this criminal enterprise has been called is the most scandalous and most elaborate spying operation carried out by an incumbent American president on his political opponent and private citizens associated with him all in a bid to obtain information with which to blackmail, intimidate and entrap them for spurious litigation and frustrate the success of the incoming administration. Obama weaponised the FBI, the intelligence agencies and the Department of Justice (DOJ) to do this, with constant leaks of classified information to the media in order to sabotage the Trump administration.
After two years of an unwarranted multimillion dollar investigation (the Muellar probe) and a failed impeachment exercise, the Democrats are dragging out the reopening of their states and cities in hopes that the American economy will not recover before the November elections from the devastation occasioned by COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns. Seeing that their ploy in that regard is becoming unsustainable, they have resorted to stoking violence and anarchy, including the creation of autonomous zones, destruction of monuments, the burning of the American flag and calling for the disbandment of the police force. How much longer before they start attacking Jews and Christians and burning more places of worship as they have done with the historic St John’s Episcopal Church opposite the White House?
This recent mayhem was unleashed under the guise of protests against police brutality on Blacks but a leader of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement recently declared on national television (as discerning folks already knew) that their goal is to force Trump out of office, tear down America and rebuild it along Marxist lines. The goals of the BLM movement are reminiscent of the Black Power and Weather Underground movements of the 1960s and 70s. The latter, to which Obama belonged, was a militant anti-imperialism and Communist organisation which carried out bombings and such. Note that this chaos is playing out in some other countries, notably in Europe, so it’s seen as a global movement. This explains the demonisation of the country and anyone who espouses patriotic, religious or real anti-racism sentiments, the latter referring to insistence that people be treated fairly regardless of their race, not claiming that the White race is singularly responsible for all the evil in the world and the disparity in outcomes for people of different races and thus should be punished and even exterminated.
But how did America get here? How did the forces of evil which propel those who want to destroy America become so emboldened that they are stalking the land virtually unchallenged? The scripture that comes to my mind is this:
“But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way,” from the Parable of the Wheat and the Tares (Matthew 13:25).
However, while the laid-back attitudes of Christians and other people of goodwill to public affairs may have contributed to the current crisis, it is the agelong fight between good and evil that has found a theater in the streets, homes and offices of America and both sides are beginning to understand that the fight is to the death. As Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Trump’s former National Security Advisor, who has been the victim of a prolonged legal battle (read as witchhunt) emanating from #Obamagate once said, America is the last stand on earth for freedom. Once America is trounced, there will be nowhere else to run to. All other places that take a stand against the encroaching totalitarianism will be quickly crushed.
Until the Lord Jesus returns, we need to fight for our freedoms and all that God has given us and the avenue for doing that is not only through prayer but political engagement as well. Otherwise, we won’t even be allowed to fulfil the Great Commission:
“18. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power i is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” – Matthew 28:18-20
That is why Jesus said, “Occupy till I come!” – (Luke 19:13) He wasn’t talking primarily about commercial increase in this Parable of the Ten Minas but of bearing fruit for the Kingdom of God.
Christians, therefore, need to put aside their differences and grievances and fight on behalf of POTUS and the country. Claiming moral superiority because one does not like Trump’s tweets or past is no longer a tenable position. Recent events have clearly shown that the other side is going for the jugular of faith, freedom, safety, unity, prosperity and everything good.
Whatever happens, our God reigns and His counsel will eventually prevail. True, the Bible predicts that the enemy will take total charge of the world before the Lord Jesus returns, but no one knows exactly when that will be. So in the meantime, put on your armour, dear Christian, and push back against the raging evil threatening your life and everything you hold dear.
“10. Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”
