The Rise of Witchcraft in America

A SHORT & BRIEF U.S. HISTORY LESSON:

On July 4, 1776, the U.S. Declaration of Independence was signed by what was then considered the “13 colonies” of America. For those of you who aren’t in the know, that was the time that America “severed” its ties with Great Britain. In other words, the 13 colonies of America declared itself INDEPENDENT from Great Britain.

All the rest of the land of what is now known as “The United States” was later added onto the “13 colonies“. And what originally started out as the “13 colonies of 1776” eventually, over time, became the “United States of America“. The very last state to join the union, Hawaii, became a U.S. state on August 21, 1959!

The U.S. Constitution & Bill of Rights (the two documents that are SUPPOSED to determine all the U.S. Laws & Bylaws) were both ratified (that means, “made official/active”) on June 21, 1788 and December 15, 1791 (respectively). And despite many people thinking that the Constitution means “freedom FROM religion”, it was actually supposed to be “freedom OF religion!” In fact, “religious liberty” was one of the KEY components of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights! Our founding fathers all believed in God and founded the very nation of America itself upon God and the bible!

But fast forward to the year 1996 or so. This was when I very first started noticing a “great cultural shift” happening……..a cultural shift AWAY from Jesus and the bible! And at first, it was very subtle……barely noticeable. [The movie called “The Craft” and the TV show “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” was released that year. Another interesting facet is that “prayer” was banned in many schools around this time, as well, though hardly anyone noticed].

And over time, as the years went on, it started to become more and more noticeable. Around the year 1997 or so, “gay pride parades” starting happening, en masse. Then in the year 1998, the movie called “Practical Magic” came out, as well as the very first Harry Potter book and the TV show called “Charmed!”]

Not to mention there was also this social campaign going on in the schools and in homes around that time where parents and teachers were told to “validate their children/students and tell them how great, wonderful, special and unique they were, while NOT focusing on their “weaknesses” – in other words, overplaying their strengths – in a desperate attempt to increase self-confidence/self-validation in young people. In other words, parents and teachers and therapists were told to “coddle the youth”.

And ya want to know what happened, folks? Those “extremely coddled” youth eventually grew up (as a whole) to be EXTREMELY NARCISSISTIC, have practically ZERO interest in Jesus, morals or the bible, have and/or display practically NO ACCOUNTABILITY, and whom think it’s ALL ABOUT *THEM!* Welcome to the “Age of Entitlement”, folks!

What’s even worse is that it branched off from the youth and then eventually reached the adults, as well (groups of people – as a whole – who feel like the world OWES them something – when the truth is, the world doesn’t owe them ANYTHING and THEY are the ones who truly owe Christ EVERYTHING for what he’s done for ALL OF MANKIND on the Cross!)

And the rise of witchcraft in America went hand in hand with that “coddling movement!” 1996 and 1998 were HUGE years for mass media witchcraft infiltration of the youth! In fact, the youth has ALWAYS been their prime target audience! Because if they could get to the youth, they knew they’d have the future and culture of the country in check!

Then on September 11, 2001, things in America just went HAYWIREspiritually. With Harry Potter, and witchcraft movies and TV shows already well underway, and with parents/teachers having been taught to “coddle the youth” and tell them how great, smart, special and wonderful they were, while downplaying their weaknesses, and NOT preaching to them about “sin” or the consequences of “wrong-doing”, the nation of America (specifically the youth of America – as a whole) then fell into a PAGAN/WICCAN TRANCE!

And BECAUSE the nation of America (as a whole) was so suddenly interested (all of a sudden) in “coddling the youth” and in “Witchcraft” and so NOT interested in Jesus and the bible, Jesus allowed the nation of America to BE ATTACKED! It was what I felt to be one of Jesus’s FINAL wake-up calls for people (specifically parents and/or pastors) that had been spiritually asleep! (Since then, there have been several more – the Pulse nightclub shooting for one, among other events, etc.)

And while some people turned to the churches after 9-11, it likely was NOT for the right reasons! Because this only lasted a few months before people stopped going to church, stopped reading their bibles, stopped praying and seeking God, etc.

Nevertheless, some parents became very angry about the Harry Potter book series and tried to have them banned from libraries! But it was to NO AVAIL! Why? Because the Spirit of Darkness was just TOO STRONG upon America! And sadly, those parents were partially to blame! Because instead of preaching the bible and the Word of the Lord to their children, they were too busy doing other things! They believed Satan’s “social engineering” lies that they needed to “coddle” their children, instead of PREACH and TEACH their children about the “wiles of the devil”, etc. So then was it any wonder then that the youth’s interest in witchcraft – at this point in time of American history – was just EXPLODING?

I remember the times of 1999 when you could walk into the average bookstore and the “New Age/Witchcraft” section was a very small one, say one bookshelf full. However, just a few years later, when you walked into the average bookstore (long before Amazon put most bookstores out of business and just 2 years or more after 9-11), the New Age/Witchcraft section just EXPLODED – with SEVERAL bookshelves then dedicated to it! And though it happened over the process of 2-3 years, to ME, it felt like it happened overnight!

And I admit this to my shame but I was 18-19 when the very first Harry Potter books came out. Everyone was making such a big “fuss” over them, especially parents. I knew that parents wanted these books “banned” from libraries and what have you. So I ordered my own set of Harry Potter books from Barnes & Noble.com just to see what all the “fuss” was about; to try to gather rather or not these parents should be as “upset” as they were. I also tried to “reason with myself” that it would be possible for me to read Harry Potter from a “Christian perspective”. BOY, WAS I DECEIVED!

I devoured the first 1-3 books in practically no time but by book 4, I was starting to get “bored stiff” of the repeating plot line and lost interest in the series! And PRAISE JESUS that he made me lose interest in the series – otherwise, things could’ve been ALOT worse! But ofcourse, even though my “heart” was not as into the series after book 4, the books themselves were STILL in my house!

And during that time in my life, I wasn’t yet aware (or aware at all) then WHEN I read part of the Harry Potter series, I had opened up a demonic doorway in my life! Not long after reading the Harry Potter books, I became temporarily interested in witchcraft & falsely believed (at the time) that I could supplement “white magic” with my Christianity! I even came across a New Age music group called “Enigma”, which had pictures of Aleister Crowley on its album cover art – though I’ll admit to my shame that I didn’t even KNOW who Aleister Crowley was at the time! BOY, WAS I DECEIVED!

Because once those “demons” GAINED the legal spiritual right to torment me (after my reading those books & after my unknowingly listening to that Satanic/Wiccan music), the “demons” were RELENTLESS in attacking me! They gained a DEMONIC STRONGHOLD over me! I went from Harry Potter to The Craft to Practical Magic to eventually thinking about enrolling in “Witchcraft School” sponsored by Yvonne Frost!

And folks, you want to know what happened during that time? I became ANGRY, DEPRESSED, VENGEFUL, ADDICTED TO LUST, ADDICTED TO “CURSING AT AND YELLING AT JESUS”, AN ALCOHOLIC, MEAN, UNFORGIVING, SELFISH, NARCISSISTIC, SUICIDAL! And that’s just the effects it had on ME, a known believer of Jesus! So just IMAGINE what it does to someone who is NOT a believer in Jesus and never WAS a believer of Jesus! It would practically DESTROY THEM!

Thankfully in my case, the Lord Jesus Christ sent me a VIOLENT (LITERAL) thunder & lightning storm of his fury that I LITERALLY thought was The End of The Earth one night & that FORCED ME TO REPENT of having tried to commit suicide several times within that time-frame of my life, etc.! Trust me, if you had seen the VIOLENT thunder & lightning storm that I did, you probably would’ve both pissed & shit yourself at the same time! What was terrifying to me about that “violent storm” were several factors:

  1. It had been THE MOST VIOLENT & ***LOUD*** thunder & lightning storm I had seen in ALL MY LIFE!
  2. It was just ONE huge neon pink lightning bolt coming out of a huge white ball of light – which told me: “Hey! This isn’t no ORDINARY storm, kid! This one’s JUST FOR YOU!”
  3. The more I thought to myself in my own sinful defiance: “Oh come on Lord, you TOO would be suicidal if YOU had experienced what I did, give me a break!”, the lighting bolt would go BAM!BAM!BAM!BAM!BAM! and get closer & closer to my bedroom window!
  4. The more I thought to myself: “Okay, okay, perhaps what I did WAS really bad and I shouldn’t of done it. I’m sorry. I don’t want to die, I just want the pain to end”, the lighting bolt would strike a bit less, less louder & move farther AWAY from my bedroom window!
  5. The next morning when I was excitedly, yet fearfully talking about “THE STORM” to my bestfriend, my next door neighbor goes: “Storm? WHAT STORM? If there was a storm last night, I’d of heard it, since I was up ALL NIGHT as I didn’t sleep much last night!” NOTE: THAT’S WHEN I **KNEW** IT WAS OF THE LORD ABOVE AND THAT “THE STORM” WAS JUST FOR *ME* AND THAT HE ALLOWED ME TO BE THE *ONLY ONE* WHO HEARD IT AND SAW IT! YIKES!!! [That was sometime during 2000-2001 and I’ve NEVER looked back – as far as “suicidal tendencies” or “alcohol addiction” goes, anyways!]

Around the year 2003 or so, U.S. national interest in witchcraft/New Age philosophies & music just INCREASED BY LEAPS & BOUNDS! What’s interesting to note is that in the Old Testament, we are of told of Isaac’s travails in Haran. We are told his sheep and his cattle “increased by leaps and bounds”. And THAT type of “increased by leaps and bounds” is what’s considered a RIGHTEOUS INCREASE!

However, the increase of Witchcraft/Satanism by leaps and bounds (around the year 2003 or so) is what’s known as an UNRIGHTEOUS INCREASE! Do you see what the Devil’s trying to do, folks? He’s trying to MOCK THE THINGS OF GOD, EVERY WHICH WAY HE CAN! Whatever God does, and whatever is “righteous”, Satan must have an UNRIGHTEOUS COUNTERFEIT!

Interestingly enough, in the years 2005-2012, The “Left Behind” series by Tim LaHaye & Jerry B. Jenkins caused a “slight resurgence” of interest in Jesus Christ, bible prophecy and the bible……if, only for a little while. And while the Left Behind series has likely sold NOWHERE near the number of books and movies that the Harry Potter “Franchise” has, atleast it got people “somewhat” interested in bible prophecy again. However, the sad thing about the series is that:

A). A “pre-trib rapture” is very likely NOT biblical! Let me elaborate on that a bit. HARPAZÕ, from what my best biblical understanding, is a Greek word that means “Catching UP”. And “Falling Away” ofcourse, means Falling DOWN; dying SPIRITUALLY! There’s MANY false preachers today (that are readers of the Left Behind series) that teach that “The Great Falling Away” means THE RAPTURE but what it REALLY, TRULY MEANS is “The Great Falling Away FROM THE FAITH!”

B). It’s NOT possible (atleast for a human being anyways – but perhaps a “righteous angel working undercover in human disguise” could) to “secretly work for the Antichrist” (undercover as a *double agent*) and get away with it! For the Antichrist will demand WORSHIP FROM ***ALL!*** 1 Corinthians 10:21 even says: “Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils”.

C). From my best biblical understanding, the “tribulation saints” are those who die BEFORE (what I’ve now come to believe will be) the Mid-Tribulation Rapture, NOT AFTER! 

Another interesting thing is that many of the Left Behind books were rumored to have been released on “High Satanic holidays”. The authors tried to explain it away by claiming that they specifically did that to try to “thwart Satan’s power”. But again, why not just release them on the 7th day BIBLICAL Sabbath (Saturday) or on BIBLICAL HOLIDAYS (such as Passover, Tabernacles, etc?) It stands to reason!

After doing more research into the matter, and peeling back the layers of the “spiritual onion” that is known as “The Left Behind Franchise”, I became very troubled in my spirit! For I started to feel, personally, like there was just as much “Witchcraft” IN the Left Behind series as there was in the Harry Potter series!

Not only does the bible NOT speak of a “secret rapture” [Revelation 1:3-7 says that ALL eyes shall see him in the clouds of heaven, EVEN THOSE who reject him] but Christians can NOT sit at the table of God AND the table of demons at the same time and get away with it! For NO man can “love two masters”. Also as well: The Christian writer of the above linked website claim that the Tim LaHaye site used to have “New Age”/masonic music on the site but has now removed it after “Christian backlash”. Interesting……….

As for the character Buck Williams [“Buck” – a male deer with TWO HORNS, anyone?] who “secretly” works for the Antichrist without the Antichrist knowing? Well, we know that Satan is NOT all powerful and all knowing like God/Jesus is. However, my best spiritual guess is that it’d probably be very unlikely for someone to try to “secretly” appear to be in Satan’s camp when they weren’t. [Note: It’s far more easier for a Satanist to “pretend” to be a Christian than it is for a Christian to “pretend” to be a Satanist]

That would be very, very hard (if not impossible) for any true Christian to pull off! And why would any Christian want to? Unless the Lord Jesus himself SPECIFICALLY commanded one of his own righteous angels or a very righteous human to do so, the chance that a Christian could do such a thing (without the Lord Jesus’s so-called backing AND get away from it, as far as the Antichrist is concerned) is very likely ZERO!

But those things aside, let us now focus on the period from 2012-2018. This is when Witchcraft and the study of Witchcraft came to a “fever pitch!” It had become – and still is, even – the “in thing”, the “popular thing”. There’s even this dark spiritual attitude like: “Hey, live and let live, everybody’s doing it, so might as well!”

In 2012, you had what’s known as “The Mayan Prophecy”. Basically, it was the 2012 version of Y2K! And, knock on wood, the world is still here……..for NOW, anyways! But people became SO obsessed with the December 21, 2012 date for “The End of the Mayan calendar”, d-uh d-uh d-uh…..And……..nothing happened! Matthew 23:36 says the following: But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only“.

In the year 2018, we’ve seen COUNTLESS numbers of godless movies, books, music, videogames, magazines, newspaper and TV shows DEDICATED to the cause of Satanism/Witchcraft. It’s on every street corner, in every neighborhood, every county, every country of the world! It’s even in many of today’s “churches”.

In fact, it’s practically EVERYWHERE! (“Wizard of Oz”, “Halloween” and/or “Oz Fest”, anyone?) And Christians, I really hate to say this but it needs to be said: we have only ourselves to blame! Because instead of reading the bible and falling on our knees in submission to our creator (God/Jesus Almighty), and REPENTING of our sins and going to every which corners of the Earth to preach the gospel, we’ve instead (as a whole) become slowly enamored (over time) with the things of this world! And now we’re all DEARLY PAYING THE PRICE FOR OUR PASSIVENESS!

Let me put this in a different way: THE REASON that Witchcraft/Satanism has seen such a SURGE and SHEER RISE in numbers IS BECAUSE we Christians (as a whole) have FALLEN AWAY FROM THE ONE TRUE GOD (THE GOD OF THE BIBLE/JESUS CHRIST ALMIGHTY!) Because lets face it. The RISE of evil in today’s society WOULD NOT have been possible to the TOTAL EXTENT that is today without the “unknowing help” from “wayward/falling away/lukewarm Christians!” IT’S THE TRUTH!

True, evil would’ve still happened, since the bible SAYS it would happen. But NOT to the GREAT EXTENT that it now has, if more Christians had fallen on their knees and faces and TRULY saught the Lord, while the Lord Jesus could still be found! Because lets face it, folks: Every single ONE lukewarm Christian just adds ONE MORE spiritual advantage to Satan’s Great Army of Darkness! SAD BUT TRUE!

And we tend to think of a witch or a Satanist as some old lady with long white hair and warts on her nose or a young guy wearing a pentagram with a black hoodie! But folks……..today’s “witches”, “warlocks” and “Satanists” could be and/or look like the guy or girl next door! They could be the 8 year old kid that lives across the street………the “20 year old war widow”………the young guy nurse that works at a hospital…….the innocent “nerdy looking guy with glasses”……….the innocent yet nerdy looking female librarian…..your doctor or dentist…….the average cashier at Walmart……or the old man walking along with a cane who claims he’s a WWII vet……..Some “witches” probably even train their 4-5 year old children to “cast spells”, I’m serious, folks!

That’s why we must remain SOBER and remain SPIRITUALLY VIGILANT! 1 Peter 5:8 says: “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”. But see folks, that’s just the thing. Many Christians today are NOT remaining sober and “spiritually vigilant” and that’s WHY Satan and his “cronies” (both demonic and human) have been able to be SO successful in infiltrating political parties (the Democrat party), The Mass Media, Society, etc. 

Therefore, in conclusion, 1996, 1998, 2000-2001, and June 26. 2015 have marked some of the GREATEST **SHIFTS** from Light to Darkness! But this I DO know: God’s Wrath has been on America for a VERY LONG TIME! The June 26, 2015 S.C.O.T.U.S. decision sealed the deal on His Wrath! And so every abominable thing that’s happened since then? I have a strong feeling that Jesus is showing us a “preview” of just what a world and society WITHOUT HIM would be like! In other words, he’s showing us a “preview” of just how MORALLY DEPRAVED things will become! Those who don’t put their faith, love, trust & obedience into Jesus will be WITHOUT A PRAYER – in this life AND the next one!

And remember, just because Trump is president and “seems” to be following up on most of his promises for “pro-life” and “religious liberty” – atleast at THIS point in time, anyways – doesn’t necessarily mean anything! For the Antichrist comes to DECEIVE MANY! And he does this by what, folks? APPEARING AS A “GOD-SEND”, AN ANGEL OF LIGHT! HA!

Nevertheless, VOTE REPUBLICAN during the November 6, 2018 U.S. Mid-term Elections as we MUST (as Christians) try to hold onto WHATEVER Pro-Life and Religious Liberty victories we can GET/MAINTAIN, WHILE we still can! SATAN IS NOW THE HEAD OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, IT’S TRUE!

Another thing I need to touch on real quick is “demonic doorways”. Witchcraft is just one of MANY “demonic doorways” that people unknowingly allow into their homes. However, that being said, there’s many DEMONIC OBJECTS in general that people unknowingly bring into their homes that OPEN UP DEMONIC DOORWAYS IN OUR LIVES and that give DEMONIC SPIRITS THE *LEGAL* SPIRITUAL RIGHT TO WRECK HAVOC ON OUR LIVES!

Plus I won’t even mention the **NATIONAL CALLS** by “Witches” to CAST A SPELL ON TRUMP, etc:

Modern-Day Witches Plan Ritual To Hex Brett Kavanaugh

Each month, thousands of witches cast a spell against Donald Trump

https://www.vox.com/2017/6/20/15830312/magicresistance-restance-witches-magic-spell-to-bind-donald-trump-mememagic

In U.S. History classes, my classmates and I were taught that witches “didn’t really exist” and that the Salem Witch Trails were just “drama” (women being falsely accused of being witches by people that didn’t like them, etc.) However, there’s a TV show out on Netflix now called “Salem” that presents the Salem Witch Trials in a DIFFERENT light…….such as there WERE such things as “witches” but that the “covens” worked IN SECRET! And then, when one member of a coven got pissed off at another older adult member of the coven, they would then so-called threaten to “tattle” on that member OR falsely accuse a TRUE CHRISTIAN of what they THEMSELVES were doing in secret!

And now that I truly think about it, I think the show “Salem” not only likely ACCURATELY portrays what REALLY happened during the Salem Witch Trials but also that it displays REAL WITCHCRAFT and “rituals” in it! (I’ll admit I watched part of Season 1 for “Educational Purposes, ONLY” to try to gain a more clearer understanding of how Wiccans work “behind the scenes” so I would have a much better knowledge of how to “spiritually thwart them, in the name of Christ!”

Ofcourse, one must be careful, the show makes fun of Christians and pastors and show pastors as “weak, angry, lukewarm, incompetent and sinful” (which unfortunately, many of them today – as a whole, ARE!) However, the show is also good at accurately portraying just how FAR Satan will go to use his “witches” to attack the faithful of God! It shows how Satan comes in with “stealth” and slowly but gradually gets us to “get mad at God/Jesus” and also how “unrepentant sin begets more sin”.

In hindsight, I actually think that a Christian could learn ALOT about the enemy (Satan/demons/witches) from that TV show and HOW they operate behind the scenes. But one must be VERY careful and PRAY in the name of Jesus before watching each episode. Otherwise, Satan could no doubt USE such a show to reel a Christian INTO the realm of “witchcraft/wicca” and trust me folks, that’s NOT where you’d want to be! The Old Testament more or less had a DEATH PENALTY for witches, since that’s how SERIOUS the sin of Witchcraft was, back in ancient biblical times! So if you can just IMAGINE how ANGRY Jesus must be over what goes on in today’s world in the name of “Witchcraft”, NOW?

One very, very last thing I wanted to mention real quick is that there’s a Satanic sect WITHIN the Roman Catholic Church called “Santeria”. That’s a Spanish word for “saints”. Basically, people gather around statues of “Catholic saints” (which are actually demons) and WORSHIP THE DEVIL! Though in THEIR minds, they falsely THINK (unless they know better and are much, much deeper into the religion) that they are worshiping God! (Creepy, isn’t it, folks?) 

But my last concluding statement, in retrospect, is THIS: Witches have ONLY been able to expand in sheer numbers DUE to the lukewarmness of many Christians. And AS LONG AS Christians put their faith, trust, love and OBEDIENCE into Jesus Christ and NONE OTHER, Satanists/Witches won’t be able to touch them!

And last but not least, I’ll end here with a PRAYER for all of you dear, dear readers here, rather a regular subscriber or a “guest reader”:

Abba/Heavenly Father, if any one reader of this blog (rather a subscriber or a “guest reader” is involved with Witchcraft in any type of way – even if it’s something as simple as lottery tickets/gambling or horoscopes – I pray that you BREAK THE HOLD that Witchcraft has over them, thus making them lost interest in it, altogether and also that you show them YOUR biblical TRUTH on the matter……that Witchcraft is AN ABOMINATION in your site! And for all those readers (rather subscribers or “guest readers”) who’ve been a VICTIM of Witchcraft in their lives, I pray that you BREAK THE POWER OF DARKNESS IN THEIR LIVES and help them to GAIN VICTORY over Satan and their spiritual enemies! I pray that you BREAK **ALL** DEMONIC STRONGHOLDS in their lives – rather participants/victims of Witchcraft or by unknowingly having “idols” or “demonic objects” in their homes – and that you PLACE YOUR HEDGE OF DIVINE PROTECTION OVER THEM, AS YOU GUIDE THEM CLOSER TO **YOUR ETERNAL TRUTH** THAT CAN **ONLY** BE FOUND IN YOU AND YOU, ALONE! I say this in Jesus’s name, AMEN!” 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Donald J. Trump: America’s Last Stand, PART ONE

Right after 9-11, many, many Americans started filling churches, in search of God or A god……desperate for answers. But that “searching for God” phase seemed to be short-lived. Just 2 and 1/2 years later, America decided to go to war…….with IRAQ……and then, all heck seemed to break loose. Americans and namely, American CHRISTIANS were just seeming to become, over time……COMPLACENT. Many just “gave up”. And it SHOWED.

And sometime between then and around the year 2005 or so, the mindset of “politically correct” was born. I think it began with a woman on an American TV talk show that was AGAINST the Iraq war. And then it all sort’ve snowballed from there. Because it wasn’t long before liberals (and many Americans, in general) started asking the questions: “Was it RIGHT for us to go to war with Iraq? What about the “innocent” Muslim groups who have NOT yet participated in Jihad?”, etc. Thus, politically correct (aka PC culture) was born!

Democrats that were unhappy with Bush (as a whole) started developing these immoral ideas. And over time, those immoral ideas became more and more immoral. And by the time President Obama took the stage, it seemed like it was over for America. It seemed like America was done. And THEN, when Obama got re-elected, many Christian conservatives were wondering if he was the Anti-Christ. On the flipside, Democrats everywhere (as a whole) were just ELATED that they once again had control of the White House. It became an Anything Goes type of morality.

Even during this middle of his 8-year term, Obama himself seemed to be embracing this “Anything Goes” type of morality. The LGBT started gaining more “rights” than EVER BEFORE. The Supreme Court LEGALIZED gay marriage all across the land. Not to mention they even PROJECTED the image of KALI on top the Empire State Building, and the “gay rainbow colors” on the White House! 

Many Americans (namely, Christian conservative Americans) just saw this country as DONE. They didn’t really have any hope. All hope to them was VANQUISHED! Many of them (early, early on in the primaries) didn’t even really CARE who got to be president in 2016, as they didn’t really think it would make much of a difference at THIS rate, since the LGBT mafia had already gotten its ways in the schools, in the media, in “mainstream American culture”, etc. They kind’ve just gave up on America and on their Christian, moral values.

But THEN………A GREAT SHIFT HAPPENED….Americans (as a whole) started realizing that American national security had been put at risk, and that things in the political world aren’t always what they seem. Americans realized that they had been LIED TO and PLAYED. They realized JUST HOW MUCH CORRUPTION there is in our government.

[But in fact, even many non-conservative Americans know and realize that our nation is in trouble. Our unemployment rate is at an all-time high, “Obamacare” premiums are SKYROCKETING in cost, our national debt is unsustainable…….not to mention we have a FLOOD of immigrants coming into our country (some of them even “terrorists” who wish to do HARM to this country!]

It’s quite a slippery slope once you LEGALIZE something that the Lord considers SIN. When the 1973 Roe V. Wade decision came on, things were bad. But the June 26, 2015 decision to legalize gay marriage in ALL 50 U.S. States really did us in, as a nation (as far as God’s Wrath is concerned!) Ever since the 1973 Roe V. Wade, Jesus Christ kept giving this nation time and time and time and time to repent. But we (as a nation) did NOT repent. In fact, we just got WORSE (as far as the legalization of SIN practices go!) And that’s what’s scary].

And while many LIBERALS are upset over the Trump win (with many “college students” even protesting the results of the election, nation-wide), Trump (as of right now) is going to be our 45th president. But just what does that mean, PROPHETICALLY? Many Christians and Conservatives are putting all their hope INTO Trump, INSTEAD of in Jesus Christ Almighty. In fact, they’re viewing Trump as some sort of “Messiah-like figure”, with some even proclaiming that he’s the “Lord’s Anointed” and/or a “Modern-Day King Cyrus”. 

But the point I want to make is THIS: First off, NOBODY knows the day or the hour of the Rapture OR PRECISELY **WHEN** the Lord Jesus Christ’s return to Earth, NOT EVEN the angels in heaven, but the Heavenly Father, ONLY! In fact, if Trump DOES get to be president and DOES deliver on some of his campaign promises and America DOES “prosper” for a season, I think there’s likely a VERY good possibility that the Rapture of the Church may occur THEN……when people are caught HIGHLY OFF-GUARD and are LEAST expecting Him!

In other words, the Lord Jesus’s Rapture will catch them LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT! And Jesus is NOT returning for “wayward Christians” who AREN’T keeping watch, folks! He’s returning for “his” ELECT……he’s returning for those that are/were keeping watch the whole time, and living a life that was biblically PLEASING to Him!

In fact, Luke 21:28 says: “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh” while Matthew 24: 42-46 says: Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing”.

So……what “things” is Luke 21:28 talking about? Luke 21: 8-28 just barely scratches the surface of what these things are while 2 Timothy 4: 3-4 says: For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” while 2 Timothy 3: 1-5 says:

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away”. 

And furthermore, rather or not Donald J. Trump is (or isn’t) a “Modern-Day King Cyrus” is BEYOND THE POINT! Because remember that our HOPE is NOT to be in any ONE human being but ONLY in Jesus Christ Almighty, for he IS our Salvation and he IS our Hope! Because at ALL times and in ALL ways, we’re supposed to be CONSTANTLY (every hour of every day) about the Heavenly Father’s business! (Even in our dreams! For remember that according to Ephesians 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 spiritual wickedness in high places”)

What does that MEAN, some may wonder? It means that we’re to be keeping our focus SOLELY on Jesus Christ Almighty and the signs of the times…….AND that we’re supposed to be still trying to win AS MANY souls to Jesus Christ as humanly possible, WHILE THERE’S STILL TIME!

A person’s voting party is BESIDES the point. The POINT is rather or not YOUR HEART is right with Jesus Christ Almighty! Although I WILL say in retrospect that those who support Hilary/abortion AND call themselves “Christian” have got some SERIOUS soul-searching to do. Enough said. However……as far as the dynamics of Trump go, there’s alot more here than meets the eye. Which is why I decided to write this post.

While it’s true that Donald J. Trump IS a highly successful businessman/entrepreneur who would likely be good for jobs/the American economy, there’s STILL many unanswered questions, here:

1). Will Trump actually do what he says he will do?

2). Has Trump ever repented to Jesus Christ of his sins?

3). Will Trump be assassinated before he even becomes president? Or AFTER? 

4). IS he a “Modern-Day King Cyrus” or “Modern-Day King Nebuchadnezzar” (an “arrogant king” who later turned to Almighty God in the Old Testament) as many Christians claim? If not, then WHO is he, prophetically speaking?

5). AS MUCH as I absolutely HATE having to consider this one, COULD it be possible that Donald J. Trump IS the Anti-Christ talked about in Revelation?

He won’t be sworn in until January 20, 2017 and alot could happen by then. Ya never know. Many of the unhappy Leftists want the electoral college electors to DEFY their state’s votes and vote for Hilary Clinton instead, on December 19th, 2016 of this year! And while it’s highly unlikely the electors’ll do so, the Leftists are still holding out hope for such.

[In fact, many on the Left (as a whole) are now acting like such poor, poor “coddled whiners”…….I think that’s sad. Democrats (as a whole) have lost their focus on what “patriotism” is all about…..Which makes me wish that Democrats (as a whole) would start to have some “patriotic common sense” and support our President Elect, like the rest of America. Not to say that the Republican party is “perfect”, ofcourse. It has its flaws, just like any political party would.

HOWEVER……when it comes to BIBLICAL VALUES (Pro-Life/Anti-Abortion, etc.) and AMERICAN PATRIOTIC VALUES, the Republican party is more far more “seemingly” aligned with biblical values (as a whole) AND American patriotic values (as a whole) than the Democratic party is

Because remember: Liberalism leads to Socialism and Socialism leads to COMMUNISM and communism leads to………VENEZUELA! And Venezuela is LIVING, VISUAL PROOF THAT COMMUNISM ISN’T SO GREAT, AFTERALL! They practically have no toilet paper or medicine there, folks! Their refrigerators and supermarket shelves are practically EMPTY! A loaf of bread now costs close to the equivalent of U.S. $300?

{Granted, many of them can still hop over to Colombia to “occasionally” buy food, toilet paper, medicine, etc. but there are STILL long lines & “food riots” they have to endure, not to mention there’s never any “guarantee” that the supplies won’t run out before they even get there. Plus the supplies are likely “rationed”, as it is. Sounds like quite a “paradise”, doesn’t it?}

And just for measure, if the ENTIRE American country ever went the way of Venezuela, where would WE hop over to to get OUR food/medicine/toilet paper? We’d either have to fly, hop on a ship, or wait for IMPORTS (if any) to come in. And supplies would be “limited” and “rationed off”, no doubt. Not much of a political, economic or social “paradise”, huh?

Heck, even many Venezuelans THEMSELVES would probably give ANYTHING to live under anything BUT communism. Many of them even want to escape here to the U.S.! Why? Because they know if they can get in here to the U.S., that they’d have it pretty good here, compared to how they have things back at home! And if most liberals and communist loving Democrats (as a whole) would take the time to talk to Venezuelans IN PERSON, I’m sure the Venezuelans would tell them how truly TERRIBLE and AWFUL communism is!!!!! 

In fact, I even wonder what would happen if some of the most liberal of liberals here were forced to live in Venezuela for a month. I wonder if they’d think communism was still so great, then. They think socialism/communism/liberalism “sounds good”, on the surface, but once they were actually LIVING IT – like the people in Venezuela are – something tells me those poor folks wouldn’t find it so “great”, afterall!!! In fact, they’d probably be hopping back on the next plane to America as fast as their precious feet could carry them! 

But as Christians/Messianic Jews/the Lord’s people, it is our job to SPIRITUALLY DISCERN THE SIGNS OF THE TIME AND NOT TO PUT ALL OUR *SPIRITUAL HOPE* INTO ONE, HUMAN BEING (be it Donald J. Trump or Mike Pence or WHOMEVER).

I WILL say THIS, though……If #4 from my list of scenarios up above is not true, (and there’s a very likely chance it’s not), then it’s possible that some highly catastrophic event (or FALSE FLAG EVENT?) will happen that’ll bring America to its knees, and I’m not totally sure how that would play out with a man who — theoretically speaking –WASN’T the “Modern-Day King Cyrus”. 

And if #5 from my list of scenarios is true — PURELY theoretically speaking — (and I’m really, truly hoping beyond all hope that it’s NOT true), then SEVERAL things would occur:

1). The people that DON’T like him NOW (on 11/17/16) will eventually START to like him, and even GROW to love him on a “worship-type level”

2). Many Christians will be DECEIVED by him and think he IS Almighty God in the flesh and the “Savior of the World and of America” (I’m NOT even kidding, folks!)

3). He will help to create a one-world gov’t system (one world religion, one world gov’t, and one world economy)

4). He will eventually require ALL men, women and children to take a mark on their right hand or their forehead, in order to be able to buy or sell (Revelation 13’s MARK OF THE BEAST)

5). He will PRETEND to make peace with Israel, then perform what’s known as THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION in which he’ll set himself up in the temple and declare that he’s God

6). He will pit himself above ALL gods (EVEN God Almighty) and call HIMSELF God!

7). He will make war with the saints (the TRUE Christians/Messianic Jews who adhere to the gospel, the COMPLETE gospel, from Old Testament to New Testament COMBINED)

But like I said, at THIS point, it’s too early to tell. But just be on your spiritual toes. And DON’T be fooled by any ONE person that puts ALL their faith and trust into ONE FALLIBLE HUMAN BEING (no matter WHO that fallible human being happens to be!)

Plus, one thing’s FOR SURE. We all need to PRAY for this nation, PRAY for Donald J. Trump and his administration, pray for ALL our unbelieving friends/family/coworkers and even pray for the Leftists and The Democratic Party/Candidates! In short, we need to start praying like never before for ALL Americans in this country!  

HOWEVER……THE SPIRITUAL BATTLE WAGING ON IN AMERICA AND THE WORLD TODAY GOES FAR *BEYOND* POLITICS AND AMERICAN PATRIOTISM, FOLKS! BECAUSE REMEMBER FOLKS: IT’S AN ALL-OUT WAR FOR YOUR **SOUL**, HERE!!!!

And P.S.: do you have any HEAVENLY/NEW JERUSALEM/JESUS-BEING-THE-ONLY-WAY-TO-SALVATION PATRIOTISM? If not, it’s time to get some!
