Oftentimes, I find myself thinking and reflecting upon
the many voices that have talked about these things.
For with the turmoil and sudden upheaval with this
election, people have been wondering what we may face in
the coming days, months, and years. There is now such a
rift between many that our very land is divided.
Many seem to think that bright and wonderful days are
ahead because now, everything will be made great for us
as a nation. Somehow, this change will bring about a
golden age for America. And yet, I like many of you,
wonder about those who live on a fixed income,
particularly ones whose only hope is Medicare, Medicaid,
or social security.
And then there are those of us who believe in Christ and
are now living this new life in Him. I find that there
is no much disunity among us as a people. There is so
much dissension because some have placed in their hope in
a man who would lead this country to a place of promise
Somehow the flag of patriotism has replaced their first
love. Any allegiance to one another has now been
replaced by a dogged-bull-headed stance on following
after a man. And it has gotten to the point where very
little dialogue can happen between each other. And if we
even question these things, we are met with intense anger
Why would anyone even question these things, it is God
who has given us now a great promise?
There seems to be two camps now that exist within the
land and actually, across the globe.
There are those who are so steeped in their allegiance to
this man, and the others, question what is going on, and
sense that God is up to something. And some would ask,
ďWhat is God up to; He chose this person to make
everything great again. He is Godís chosen vessel, just
like Joseph or Daniel were chosen during their time.Ē
And yet, we well know that God can do anything of course;
He enabled a donkey to speak for him during the time of
But are we destined for greatness when our land is so
divided? Are we destined for greatness when we have not
repented for the many sins that continue in our land?
End time prophecy tells us that the elite of the world
will bring about their plan for world consolidation and
And now this group is coming into the very cabinet of
this new administration. The swamp is not going to be
drained but actually, just the opposite is happening.
What has happened to our discernment? Have we given up
on it, for the sake of promises that will never be kept?
ďThen I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and
he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.
And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in
his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in
it to worship the first beast,ď Revelation 13:11-12.
This is all part of a false theology which finds its
culmination in the terms of The Seven Mountains, which
Arts and entertainment.
To do their conquering, representatives of this theology
must be placed in power in each of the categories. And
so, through this theology, the world as we see it, will
be transformed through the evangelism and empowerment of
men and women working in and through these categories
upon the earth.
Itís simply not a scriptural truth that this world will
be ďcleaned-upĒ through the authority of governing
apostles. We look forward to new heavens and a new
earth. We know that as we approach the time of Christís
second coming that the world will become a darker and
We canít change prophecy. We can evangelize and do what
we can in our own corners of the earth to bring many into
the kingdom, but much of this world is under the prince
of power of the air. And while we have victory over him
and his fallen ones, he still has the freedom to deceive
and bring havoc upon many.
The Bible clearly states that in the end that satan will
rule the world and will cause all great and small to take
the mark of the beast and worship him. A remnant will be
saved out of great persecution I believe, and will endure
to the end, and then will be taken out.
We are told through this teaching, that a great harvest
of souls awaits, redeeming the entire globe to God. With
this notion, heaven is then invading earth, and a golden
age is set up.
What they donít realize is that the stage is then being
set up for the Antichrist. Actually, all hell is being
released, instead of heaven coming to earth. Then after
a peace treaty that the Antichrist sets up, and then
comes the end, and the return of the true Christ.
What many in the group fail to recognize is that they
canít control the entire state of affairs in this world.
All of culture and society canít be redeemed, until
Iím not saying that we donít get involved in these
different facets of society, but we canít expect that our
anointing, our wisdom, or governance, or anything, can
cause this to happen on a global scale.
We are called to be salt in this world, not the entire
ďFor when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden
destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman
with child; and they shall not escape,Ē 1 Thessalonians
