Greetings in the name of
Jesus! This writing takes place on January 23, 2017. Its purpose is to share
what I see happening in the physical world and the spirit realm.
THE ELECTION OF DONALD TRUMP
In looking back to the
primary and general election campaigns, it was a miracle that Donald Trump won
the election. There were 16 candidates running for the Republican nomination and
the establishment did not want Trump to win. Even with the party against him,
financing his own campaign and the mainstream media digging up all kinds of dirt
or just fabricating phony news, Trump still became the party nominee.
In the general election,
many of the leading republicans openly stated that they were voting for Hillary
Clinton, including former president George H.W. Bush. There was even a group
called “Republicans for Clinton.” Mitt Romney, the republican nominee in 2012,
went on public television and stated that Trump was a phony, a con man and unfit
to be president. There was also a republican group called “Never Trump” that
fought hard to make sure that Hillary Clinton won.
The television networks
went out of their way to smear Trump and the newspapers published stories of how
bad he was. Eight women were found and paraded by Gloria Allred, a Jewish
left-wing democrat and feminist, and claimed they had been groped and sexually
assaulted by Donald Trump.
A video from 2005 was
unearthed that featured Trump and Billy Bush, nephew to George H. Bush, in which
the two had a crude sexual conversation on their way to a studio in Hollywood.
The video was released and repeatedly played on different television networks.
Senator John McCain and House Speaker Paul Ryan pulled their support along with
a number of prominent pastors and other Christian church leaders that initially
Trump did not deny the
video was true and said he was not the same man anymore. He asked the American
people for forgiveness and stated that he was disgusted with himself over that
Hillary Clinton ironically
used the video to describe Trump as a sexual predator given Bill’s past and the
many rape allegations. Nevertheless, these were the low times for Donald Trump
as the democrats and the mainstream media demanded his resignation. Even the
republican leadership worked hard to find a way to legally dismiss Trump and
find another candidate. No one was willing to consider the fact that Trump had
become a born again Christian some five years previously and that he was a new
creation in Christ.
Hillary Clinton was able to
downplay the fact that she had illegally kept government email on a private
server as Secretary of State and all the polls showed that she was in for an
easy win. Political pundits talked about the race being over and Hillary seemed
like a shoo-in to win the election.
THE GOD FACTOR
The Bible tells us that
those who tries to hide their sins will not prosper, but the person that repents
will be shown mercy by God. (Proverbs 28:13) The sins of a man will come to the
surface and he won’t be able to get away from them. (Numbers 32:23)
John Podesta was Hillary
Clinton’s campaign manager and someone hacked his email account. The democrats
initially blamed it on the Russians and later the U.S. intelligence directors
came to the same conclusion. At any rate, the hacked email was passed on to
Wikileaks, who in turn began to expose the corruption within the Democratic
Party and how the democratic leadership had worked to make sure that Bernie
Sanders lost the primary election.
The media tried to cover it
up and refused to publish the incriminating emails, but a steady drip via the
Internet and Fox News began to corrode Clinton’s campaign. The biggest hit came
when FBI director James Comey announced he was re-opening the investigation of
the Clinton private email server just 14 days before the election. The FBI had
gotten a court order to investigate ex-congressman Anthony Weiner’s computer
because of a pending sex scandal. As the agents went through his laptop, they
found his wife, Huma Abedin, had used his laptop to correspond with Hillary
Clinton. She was a very close aide during Clinton’s time as Secretary of State
and later became the vice-campaign manager during the election.
I personally believe that
God used the Russians to hack John Podesta’s email in order to show people the
rottenness of the democratic machine and turn voters toward Trump.
THE PEOPLE OF GOD
Sometime before Donald
Trump decided to run for the presidency, he had been watching an American
televangelist named Paula White and was impressed by her message. She is not the
ideal person I would select to witness about Christ since she had a messy
divorce and extra-marital relationships, but God is not a respecter of persons
and can use whomever He wants to do accomplish His work on earth. Consequently,
White was asked to come and personally speak to Trump and his family. She prayed
with him and claimed that he accepted Christ as his personal Lord and Savior.
Once Trump sought the
presidency, he asked White to come back and speak with him again. At that
meeting he asked her to contact some 25 evangelical Christian ministers in order
to meet them. Baptist, Pentecostal and other denominational leaders came and
Trump asked if they would be willing to advise his campaign. Among them was
Darrel Scott from Cleveland, David Jeremiah, James Robison, Kenneth Copeland,
James Dobson and others.
James Robison and other
ministers spoke to Trump about his faith, affirmed that he had indeed been born
again and said that he would never win without God’s help. During the latter
part of the campaign, James Robison flew with Trump from rally to rally and
spent a lot of personal time with him.
Steve Strang of Charisma
magazine began to push Trump and so did Jim Bakker and many other prominent
ministries. Trump issued a call in 2016 for ministers to come and meet with him
and a thousand pastors from different denominations came from around the country
in June to see for themselves whether Trump was pro-life and stood for Christian
values. Jim Bakker made a statement that Donald Trump had been the only one to
gather so many preachers from different denominations and bring them to together
to work in unity.
Dr. Robert Jeffress from
First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas and Dr. Ed Young from Second Baptist
Church in Houston, Texas worked to bring in the Southern Baptist vote. Franklin
Graham began a yearlong campaign to hold rallies in every state capitol and
ended it with a huge rally in Washington D.C. He did not endorse Trump, but
urged people to vote for biblical values as presented in the party platforms. On
the election night, he held a live prayer vigil via Facebook and led thousands
of Christians in prayer for the election.
Steven Strang used his
Charisma media network to bring in prophets and pastors and openly told people
that Trump was the only option if you are a Christian. Charisma posted an appeal
from Revival Ministries asking Christians to fast and pray during the final six
days before the election. I was one of the thousands who agreed to fast and pray
over the matter. I skipped 18 meals and it was worth the sacrifice. It was a
small price to pay in contrast for what we gained as a nation.
Christians came out by the
millions on election day and the mainstream media reported it was the largest
amount of evangelicals that had voted in years. Pastors urged Christians to vote
for a pro-life and pro-Bible candidate, writing articles and even publishing
books on short notice.
TO GOD BE THE GLORY
I want to make it clear
that no man can take credit for the election victory since it was God that moved
upon America. It wasn’t because Donald Trump or his staff ran an effective
campaign. Although Hillary Clinton was a crooked politician and a disappointment
with her moral failures, no man can take the credit for her stunning defeat. All
these seemingly random events were orchestrated by the Lord. This is the time to
be thankful because we have been granted a four year reprieve where we aren’t
persecuted for our Christian faith by an ungodly government. How are you going
to redeem the time?
Chicago Cubs won the 2016 World Series after a 108 year slump. Donald Trump was
a dark horse candidate that won the presidency. There are those who would say
that it is a good time to buy a lottery ticket given the incredulous events that
are happening. Nonetheless, all the glory belongs to God! The ungodly liberals
are fuming and they aren’t waiting until the next election cycle to effect
change. We can’t rest upon our success and go back to the passive state many
were in before the election. This is a time to fervently pray like never before!
The Devil is mad and he is fighting back. The God haters will seek a change to
this recent reversal of liberalism that is slowly engulfing our nation.
Vladimir Putin is not a
saint by any means. He was a foreign intelligence officer (also known as a spy)
for 16 years with the rank of Lt. Colonel. For ten years he worked as a KGB
agent in Eastern Germany. He was a ruthless communist party loyalist, and when
the Berlin wall fell in 1990, Putin moved back to the Soviet Union and settled
in St. Petersburg, a city known to be the home of the Russian mafia.
Boris Yeltsin was elected
president in 1991 after the fall of the Soviet Union. He was an alcoholic and
had been a successful communist boss and he became even more corrupt during his
time as president of the Russian Federation. Putin moved to Moscow in 1996 and
applied for work within the Yeltsin administration, quickly advanced and became
prime minister in 1999.
Yeltsin resigned as a
result of his corruption on December 31, 1999 and he appointed Putin as the
acting president until elections could be held in 2000. Putin then did what
Gerald Ford did for Richard Nixon and pardoned Yeltsin so he could not be
prosecuted for corruption. Yeltsin would die seven years later due to poor
Vladimir Putin won the 2000
election and was re-elected in 2004. The Russian constitution states that a
president can only serve two consecutive terms, but he can run again after
another person had been elected president. This is exactly what happened as
Dmitry Medvedev was groomed by Putin to run for presidency in 2008, and by
rigging the election, Medvedev won and appointed Putin as his prime minister.
Putin was really in charge and Medvedev merely served as a figurehead. Putin
then set in motion procedures to amend the constitution and extend the
presidential term to six years. When Medvedev’s term was up in 2012, Putin ran
for a third term and won after election shenanigans.
Despite the election of
Dmitry Medvedev, Vladimir Putin has in reality been the leader of Russia since
2000. He has ruthlessly closed down all opposition television stations, muscled
the press and used the FSB (previously known as the KGB) to assassinate dozens
of political adversaries. Some of his foes were shot, others were hanged and one
was poisoned with plutonium.
Putin joined the Russian
Orthodox Church sometime after he was elected president and the former atheist
and communist suddenly became a “Christian.” The Russian Orthodox leadership
embraced Putin and in return he has crafted laws that forbade foreign churches
from doing mission work within Russia. There has also been persecution against
Pentecostal, Baptist, Seventh Day Adventists and other western religions.
Despite Putin’s newfound
Christian faith, he divorced his wife of 20 years in 2013. He chose a 31 year
woman to be his mistress and she later gave birth to their child in 2015. I am
sharing this information because it shows his immoral character.
Vladimir Putin used the FSB
to make sure that Viktor Yanukovych, a former communist boss, won the Ukrainian
presidential election in 2010. Putin was enraged when he was overthrown in a
coup backed by the CIA and the Mossad in 2014 because Yanukovych had been
working to bring Ukraine back under Russian influence by accepting a Russian
financial bailout, instead of turning to the European Union (EU) for help.
Putin responded by invading
Crimea, a province of the Ukraine, on February 23, 2014, and despite world
condemnation, he annexed the region back into Russia control. When Putin saw
weakness of Barack Obama, he also ordered Russian troops into the three eastern
provinces of Ukraine. Putin used the same tactics that the Chinese did during
the Korean War in the 1950’s when they sent in a million “volunteer” soldiers.
Putin went on television and told the world that retired Russian soldiers wanted
to restore Ukraine to Mother Russia and had done so by themselves. This was a
blatant lie as Putin also sent tanks, artillery and other equipment used by
these “volunteers” to push out the Ukrainian army.
The United States, England,
France, Germany and other NATO countries responded by imposing sanctions on
Russia and Putin expressed his anger at several press conferences.
Petro Poroshenko was
elected president of Ukraine on May 25, 2014, and with the help of Israel and
other nations, he has fought the Russian “volunteers” in Eastern Ukraine. This
war is still ongoing.
VILLAIN OR DEFENDER?
Russia has been greatly
abused by the Jewish Kabbalistic World Government since 1850. When Karl Marx and
his assistant Friedrich Engels wrote the Communist Manifesto in 1848, the goal
was to take control of Russia and use it to crush the monarchies in Europe and
lay the foundation for a world federation.
Young Russian Jews were
indoctrinated by Marx’s hellish teaching and initiated violent confrontations
with the Russian government around 1875. Tsar Nicholas II tried to reason with
the instigators, but when they kept murdering policemen, robbing banks and
causing chaos, Nicholas had no choice but to put it down and the resulting
violent clashes brought death to many of the young revolutionaries.
|Tsar Nicholas II
The order was given by the
World Government to remove Nicholas from power and the Japanese government was
asked to make war against Russia. Jacob Schiff was the German born Jewish banker
who organized a worldwide boycott decrying the oppression and death of Russian
Jews. The American Jewish Committee became a powerful lobby that mobilized
Jewish bankers, factory owners, businessmen and political leaders all over the
All the banking houses in
Europe demanded immediate payoff on the existing loans and refused to grant any
further credit to Russia. In this way the Russian economy began to crumble.
Japan attacked Russia in
1904 and destroyed much of its navy in the Pacific Ocean. Japan had been able to
build up its navy due to 100 million dollars in loans from Jewish banking
houses. When Nicholas tried to borrow money from banks in Europe, he was turned
down and the pressure continued until the Jewish led Bolsheviks took control of
Russia in 1917. The Jewish hate for the Tsar and his family was so great that
they were taken to a house and slaughtered on July 17, 1917 in the basement.
Putin is acquainted with
Russian history and he knows the Russian revolution was in reality a Jewish
Kabbalistic revolution. The Jewish grip on the Soviet Union had become weak by
the late 1980’s, and once Putin took charge of Russia in 2000, he began a purge
of the Jewish oligarchs (rich businessmen). The wealthiest of them all was
Mikhail Borisovich Khodorkovsky, who was arrested in 2003 and spent 10 years in
prison until he was released and exiled to England.
Putin knows full well there
is a World Government who is working to eliminate all nations and merge them
into a world federation. The World Government does not have a military and
relies upon the United States and NATO to carry out its orders. After the
collapse of the Soviet Union, a number of enslaved nations broke loose. Among
them were the three Baltic nations of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, along with
Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria, Albania and most of the nations that
split up from Yugoslavia. There were also a string of Muslim regions that broke
loose such as Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan.
Most of the former Soviet
client states in Eastern Europe have applied for membership in NATO, and when
the new Ukrainian government indicated they would also be applying for
membership in NATO, Putin exploded in anger and is now waging war against
Ukraine to bring it back under the control of Russia.
Many of the Eastern
European nations are fearful that Putin will attack and force them back into the
Russian fold. As a result, the United States and England have placed ground
troops in the Baltic States and Poland. Tactical units of the U.S. air force
have also been deployed in these nations.
Sweden which has been
neutral for more than 120 years has signed an agreement with NATO and American
ground troops and air force units have visited Sweden to hold practices with
Sweden’s small military force with the aim of blunting any type of Russian
Norway has been a part of
NATO since its inception but always refused to allow troops to be stationed in
their country. That has now changed as everyone is scared of growing Russian
presence and the United States has now placed permanent ground forces in Norway.
Some of the Stan nations
have opened their countries for American bases and Russia rightly feels that it
is being surrounded by enemy troops on all sides. American troops and missile
batteries can be found on Russia’s border with Norway, the Baltic States and
Vladimir Putin is a student
of history and he remembers how the Germans ringed the Soviet Union with troops
in 1941, and when the attack came, German, Hungarian and Spanish troops took
western Russia and came to the gates of Moscow before they were finally driven
back in 1943.
In order to understand
Putin’s fear, it would be like having foreign troops on the Canadian and Mexican
borders. It would be very difficult to defend ourselves if there was a
simultaneous pre-emptive strike by such forces. We would certainly not tolerate
a troop buildup on our borders and that is the current situation in Russia.
It was tough for the
communist leadership when the Soviet Union was dissolved in 1991 and large
portions of its territories held since 1945 were taken away. There is no doubt
that Putin and the men around him dream about taking back the land they lost and
they want to make Russia great again. There is a powerful Satanic archon over
Russia identified as Gog. (Ezekiel 38:1-4; Revelation 20:8) He has been involved
in all the wars over the centuries. Sweden was at war with Russia from 1300 to
1809, then there have been wars with Poland, Austria/Hungary Empire, Germany,
Turkey, Japan, China and Afghanistan. Gog has intermittently been in a state of
war for 700 years.
THE MIDDLE EAST
Vladimir Putin showed his
true face in Syria when he deployed Russian troops, navy ships and air force to
Syria when President Assad asked for help according to a defense treaty signed
in 1946. The Russians do not fight prolonged wars like the United States. They
fight to win by squashing all opposition and they do not care if thousands of
civilians are killed. Consequently, they bombed hospitals, destroyed ambulances,
shot at Red Cross workers and showed there was no target that would be spared by
the Russian military. That is the reason they quickly won the war in Syria and
aced out the United States and Turkey in the process. This is also how they
fight in Ukraine and how they will fight in Europe someday.
As the world watched the
assault on Aleppo and the horrible suffering inflicted on civilians, Putin
showed that he does not care about world opinion, only winning at any cost.
Aleppo is now under Russian control; the city’s infrastructure is destroyed as
water, sewer and electricity are no longer available. Do you think Putin is not
bothered by the destruction? No, he does not live in Syria and doesn’t mind
waging war in someone else’s nation. Vladimir Putin is the new power broker in
the Middle East. Leaders from Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Israel, Turkey and Egypt do
not necessary like him but they respect his brutality.
President Donald Trump is
not a pushover but he doesn’t have the same military power available to Putin.
Barack Obama gutted the military and it will take years to restore it.
The United States isolated
itself once again after World War I. There were reductions in the navy, army and
marines. When Japan attacked Pearl Harbor in December 1941, President Roosevelt
woke up to the fact that there was very little he could do. The United States
was put on war footing as 12 million men were drafted, and automobile factories
were converted to produce tanks, trucks and air planes. There were no passenger
cars built from 1942 to 1945. Women were asked to work in factories and
shipyards to replace the men who had been drafted. Factories worked three shifts
per day for three straight years and the biggest military force ever seen came
into being. It was two years before the United States attacked in North Africa
and Italy, and then the Normandy invasion in June 1944. General McArthur
requested more forces in the Pacific but had to make do with what he had since
the majority of troops and supplies were tied up in Europe.
If a war breaks out today,
we won’t have two years to build up our military. The war could be over in less
than a week, and since we don’t have enough conventional forces, we would be
forced to go nuclear and that would bring a retaliatory strike from the Russians
and the Chinese.
President Trump is not an
idiot and he is not going to enter a war he cannot win. He really has no other
alternative than to work with Putin in order to preserve the United States.
This option will not be
embraced by the World Government since a strong Russia will set back their plans
for a world federation and push back the coming of the Antichrist. Vladimir
Putin hates the World Government. Donald Trump is also rejecting the World
Government because he is nationalistic and wants to put American interests
first. Great Britain broke away from the European Union, and it will continue to
lose more member states.
The World Government is
highly displeased as their carefully laid plans are being destroyed, the
timetable is being set back and their dream of a World Federation with its
capitol in Jerusalem under a charismatic leader is fading. A wounded animal will
fight back and you can be sure that these men will retaliate. I don’t know how
long it will take them to destroy the opposition but we know that Satan will one
day implement a world federation with a chosen man to rule the world.
It’s hard to say how much
time we have left, but as it looks right now, we might have a few years to
preach the Gospel and live out our lives on this earth for the Lord Jesus
“And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write;
These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of
David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man
know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can
shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast
not denied my name.
Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews,
and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before
thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from
the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them
that dwell upon the earth.
Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy
Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he
shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the
name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of
heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.”
