Can a Christian be a Trump Supporter?

 I voted for Donald Trump. Yup. I admit it.  I don't agree with everything he says or does or everything he has ever said or done. I voted for him because I believed he was the best candidate to help bring back jobs, defend our nation, stop illegal immigration, and uphold the constitution. I voted for him because the other candidate was an unthinkable choice.

I am a Christian. I believe the Bible is the living Word of God. I believe Jesus is the Son of God who came to earth, lived a sinless life, died for the sins of all mankind, rose again, and is now sitting at the right hand of His Father. All those who rely on Him and believe in Him and follow Him will spend eternity with God. Loving God with all my heart and loving my fellow man as myself are my chief aims in life. I am not a racist, a zenophobe, a homophobe, transphobe, islamaphobe or any other "phobe".  I have friends of all races and my granddaughters are half Mexican.

Then why am I being persecuted by my fellow Christians for being a Trump supporter. I lost a dear Christian friend over this election who told me that I couldn't be a Christian and support Trump. She was actually worried about my salvation. I recently met other Christians online who said the very same thing. Questioning my faith and my salvation simply because of my political preference. I've never seen anything like it!

Their reasons are always the same. Trump is a racist, a nazi, a pervert, and a woman hater. He's a white supremacists who wants to take away the rights of every minority in the country, including the LBGTQ community, all while he's splitting up Mexican families and throwing parents out of the country without their children. He's the antichrist himself who is going to start World War III and destroy our nation. Oh, and by the way, he surrounds himself with rich white racists too.

Really? Wow. Whenever I hear all those things I truly wonder what news these people are listening to. Honestly, I think that's the key. If Trump really was all those things and was doing all those things, then absolutely, as a Christian, I could never support him. But the truth is, I don't believe he is any of those things. I really don't. (Maybe a pervert in his younger years... I'll grant you that one. But then again, we've had lots of perverts in the White House, haven't we?. Kennedy and Clinton come to mind).  So then, if much of the country believes all this horrible stuff about Trump and the other half doesn't, where's the disconnect?

I'm not here to defend every accusation against him, though I  believe I could. That's not what this post is about. This post is about a very dangerous trend in America that is a cancer that will destroy us. This post is about propaganda.

Propaganda: information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to help or harm a person, group, movement, institution, nation, etc

Did you ever wonder why so many Germans allied themselves with Hitler?  Surely if they knew what a horrible monster he was, the majority of the population would have risen up and gotten rid of him!  Then why did his nation adore him? I have one word: Propaganda. Hitler and his people owned the media of the time and began feeding the minds and hearts of the people with lies...very convincing lies.  People believed the newspapers and journalists because they had no reason not to.  Now, before you tell me that this is exactly what Trump is doing, then why is the media against him?  You have to stop and ask yourself that question. Why is the majority of the media against Trump? 

We live in a digital age and much of what we see and hear can be manipulated. They can alter pictures, play clips of videos that make it seem like something it isn't, give you half-truths or full out lies. They can even film an event in a movie studio and make you believe it really happened. And people believe them because, hey, they're journalists! They are supposed to be reporting the news. But the age of the unbiased journalist is gone. And with it, our republic. A democracy that is run by the people cannot survive unless the people are properly informed. The people must have the truth, or how can they vote correctly? They can't. 

This is so much more than democrats vs. republicans. There are forces at work in the USA and the world that most people have no clue about. I have only just begun to skim the surface of what is truly going on. There are very powerful and very wealthy groups of people behind the scenes who are the ones running the show. They want a one world government with them in charge. But first they have to destroy any form of democracy and create such chaos and violence within countries that people beg them to bring back order and peace. They will even go so far as to start a world war to achieve their goal. Several of our presidents in the USA have been merely puppets for these people (democrat and republican), and they thought they had another puppet in place when the horror of all horrors happened: Trump won. He's a nationalist and a believer in this country and the constitution. And they hate him for it. Now, they have to him get out of office at all costs. At the very least, they will put roadblocks in place so he can't achieve any of his goals to make America great again. 

The mainstream media is in their pocket and they are using it to lie to the American people, to convince them that Trump is the worst sort of person imaginable and that he will destroy our country. 

Case in point: The recent Charlottesville riots. 
Here's basically what most of the news media reported: The KKK and Neo-Nazis were protesting the removal of a statue of a confederate war hero and when other people came to protest their rally, all hell broke loose. Fighting ensued, including knives and blow torches and in the end someone drove a car into the crowd, killing one person and injuring several. 

And when Trump came out with his initial statement saying that there were bad people on both sides, he was instantly called a racist and a white supremacist.  Later, he came out and said that of course all forms of racism, the KKK, and Neo-Nazis are reprehensible, but he stuck to his original story that both sides were culpable in the riot.

Here's what really happened from two eye-witnesses  (Both posts were comments on my blog)

My son is a Major in the VA National Guard and was there. There were an equal number of well funded leftists there (planned ahead of time) whose intent was to fight and make those who were there merely to preserve our history appear to be aligned with the Nazi and KKK element. Sad that America is continually being deceived by the mainstream media. They put their ideology ahead of what is good for our country.

I live here in Va. and you might be surprised at what has already come out about the violence in Charlottesville. Some in the Charlottesville police have come forward and said they were ordered to lead the two groups together and to "stand down" and not intervene in any way unless told to by the democratic mayor. They said they couldn't even stop the car that drove into the crowds because of this order. The whole thing was planned, last I heard, 5 of the 6 arrested weren't even Va. citizens 

MaryLu again: Yes, there were probably KKK and White supremacists there. Yes, they are horrible people. But I don't believe they made up the bulk of the original rally. The people who were shipped in on purpose to disrupt things may or may not have had good intentions, but we know at least some of them came there intending violence. (I personally believe they were paid)

Why would anyone want to cause a riot and possible death? See my paragraph above about the forces behind the scenes. They want to cause chaos and division and hate. 

So what can you do? Who can you trust? 

 If you see a clip of something happening or of a speech and then the anchor person puts a spin on it, seek out the entire clip somewhere else and watch it. Watch both conservative and liberal news stations and read both liberal and conservative newspapers and when something doesn't seem right and there are contradictions, seek out another source online. In fact, seek out multiple sources. Find a newspaper or news outlet that you trust and stick with it, but never read it exclusively.  The trouble with this is that it takes time and hard work and most people are lazy in this country. Many people don't even know our true history or even care. We're being distracted with entertainment, sex, alcohol and drugs. And if you don't think that was also planned, check out the history of Rome and why it fell. Keep the ignorant masses entertained, keep them fat, dumb and happy and they won't pay attention to you when you strip them of all their freedoms.

Back to my original point: None of us should ever question another person's salvation. Yes, we can examine their fruit and wonder sometimes. But whether a person is saved or not is a matter of the heart and between them and God. 

Secondly, salvation in Jesus Christ has nothing to do with political affiliation or who one votes for. We are not saved by works, but by grace (and I would add, a love for Jesus and desire to follow Him). Even if Trump were a racist and all those other things they say he is, my voting for him has no effect on my eternal destination. 

Before you accuse me of not being saved because of voting for him, perhaps you ought to get your facts straight about exactly who he is and what is really going on in this country.

Friday's Mad Mad World!

Greetings, fellow watchers and warriors!  Here's another batch of mind (and gut) curdling news stories that you won't hear on the lame-stream news (At least most of them) .

One thing that stuck out to me this week. of course, was the horrible riots in Charlottesville. I don't believe we'll ever hear what really happened from the media, but I tend to believe someone with deep pockets is paying and shipping in people to cause chaos and violence in our country. The reason? So they can take over and restrict our rights. (The shadow government has been planning this for years)

I'm not a white supremacist. I'm not a racist. I love people of all color, just like Jesus does. But I'm totally against them tearing down monuments and statues that depict our nation's history! What's next? Are they going to tear pages out of history books? Rewrite our history into something that it wasn't. Yes, slavery was evil, but we fought a war to get rid of it. The South's interest was purely monetary. Most of the southern people didn't like slavery either. I'm not taking their side, but this is a part of our history, like it or not.  How can we learn from our mistakes if we don't remember them and teach them to our children?

Another thing that stood out to me was that You Tube is cutting off channels that talk about things they consider hate speech. Hate speech, of course, is a relative term and its definition can change from day to day and person to person. But anything to do with the Christian, conservative viewpoint and anything especially that says that Transgenders or LBGTQ is a sin, and anyone who supports Trump, well your days are numbered. One of the channels I watch has already been canned. We are at the end, people.

 And when the servant of the man of God arose early and went out, there was an army, surrounding the city with horses and chariots. And his servant said to him, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?”

So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”  And Elisha prayed, and said, “Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha

My experience with demons

Do you realize that Jesus spent more of His time casting out demons than healing people? The Apostles also did their fair share of dealing with demons. Then, why do we rarely, if ever, hear anything about them from the pulpits of America? Did these vile spiritual creatures suddenly vacate the planet after the Apostles died? Did they have a change of heart and decide they didn't enjoy torturing humans but would rather sit quietly in the fires of hell?

I was privileged during a few years as a teen to be able to attend a rather interesting church in South Florida called the Good News Fellowship, pastored by the likes of Derek Prince, Bob Mumford, Don Basham and others. During that time I witnessed such things as tongues, interpretation, healing, prophecy and demon deliverance. It was an amazing time and I wish it had lasted. But like all things, the devil got involved with some false theology and the group split up. All that to say that I knew from that time on that demons existed and that they were in full operation today.

What are demons, anyway? Where did they come from? There are many theories out there, the prevailing one among theologians is that they are fallen angels. But that doesn't make sense. Fallen angels already have spirit-bodies are are not in need of another. My personal belief after much research is that these demons are the spirits of the dead Nephilim, which, if you remember, were the offspring of the fallen angels and human women. When they died, these evil spirits were set free on the earth and are constantly looking for a body to inhabit. Regardless of where they came from, demons do exist and their number one goal is YOUR destruction. They hate humans because we are made in the image of God and because God offered us redemption and denied the same to them.

Why do we not hear more about them today? Let me put it this way: Satan's greatest tactic is to make you believe he doesn't exist.

I never encountered any demons head on until my husband got saved thirteen years ago. His salvation experience was so miraculous, dramatic, and quick that the demons inhabiting him were apparently caught off guard and fled him in great numbers, and always during the night when he was asleep. For several weeks after he gave His life to the Lord, I would wake up to loud groaning and moaning coming from my husband. I mean, loud!  The first time it took me a minute to figure out what was happening, but then I started praying and saying the name of Jesus. I didn't want them to come on me!  My husband had never ever made such sounds in his sleep and I honestly believe it was the demons angry that they had to leave him because I'm sure the Holy Spirit was cleaning house. Also my husband said he had nightmares of ghoulish looking creatures shoving their faces in his and screaming at him. Also, just after he got saved, he saw what he describes as shadowy figures darting across the path he was walking on.

I've since come to realize that these evil beings are everywhere, looking for any opportunity to break through our armor of light. If you've read my book, When Angels Cry, you may remember the scene where the demon of fear is circling the heroine anticipating her invitation for him to come in. Do you realize that when we give into fear, doubt, worry, hatred, etc, that we are extending an invitation for that demon to enter us? Our sin creates a break in the light around us wherein they can slither through. Once they get in us, their job is to increase that sin.. make us fear more, hate more and act on our sinful desires. You may think I'm crazy, but this is no joke. I've felt these creatures come on me when I've given into thoughts and feelings I shouldn't be having.

But wait, Christians can't be inhabited by demons! My experience has been otherwise. Besides, if that were true, why do they bother to try to get in?  I don't believe a true believer can be possessed by demons, but I believe IF WE ALLOW them, they can inhabit parts of our personalities.

Here's another true story that happened to me.
My husband and I were on our 20th Anniversary trip to Jamaica. Honestly, don't go to Jamaica. I could tell the minute we got off the plane that something very dark lives on that island. There's a history of witchcraft and vodoo that still permeates the culture and keeps the forces of darkness active.  Anyway we stayed at a Sandals and had a lovely week. On our last day there, completely out of the blue, we got into this HUGE fight. I mean. huge. I had been reading my Bible daily while there and praying as usual, and I had just spent a few minutes with one of the workers at the resort, telling him about Jesus. Then boom, my husband got mad about something utterly ridiculous. I should have realized what was happening but I didn't. So, we fought. It went on for hours until finally we sort of made up and went to bed. (Now I realize that the demons were furious at me witnessing so they used something from my husband's past to get him angry at me)

In the middle of the night I was awakened by flashes of light. You know how you're in that deep sleep and you sense something going on but you don't really care? But it kept happening. flashes going off behind my eyelids. So, I finally opened my eyes and saw lights in our hotel room going on and off, on and off. It was insane!  I got real scared, but at that moment, my husband who was still asleep starting groaning like he used to do after he first got saved. Then, I realized what was happening and I quickly said. "Out, in the name of Jesus!"

Boom, everything went dark! The lights shut off. My husband stopped groaning. In fact, it was funny because he said  "Thank you" to me and then we both went to sleep. In the morning, he told me that he was having this horrible nightmare. He was pinned against a wall and a raven was pecking out his eyeballs. Then he heard me shout the name of Jesus and he woke up.

Do we Christians realize the power in the name of Jesus?  I honestly didn't until that moment. Just saying His name made those host of demons leave immediately. They didn't argue, didn't stick around to cause more trouble, didn't hesitate whatsoever. They just left!

That's why I no longer fear them. They are defeated foes. They may still try to cause me problems, and sometimes I may even inadvertently allow them access during a weak moment, but I've come now to recognize them. And all it takes is one command to leave in Jesus's name and they have no choice.

By the way, one way to feel their influence is whenever you feel an overwhelming, uncontrollable desire to do or say something you know is wrong. I'm not trying to make excuses for our own sinful behavior. We start the process by thinking or doing something we know is wrong... then if we continue, the demon comes in and gives us that almost uncontrollable push to continue. That's when we need to have the strength to cast it away and then change course.

If you aren't a believer and follower of Jesus, you have no power over these creatures. You can say the name of Jesus over and over but it won't matter unless it comes from a Christian.  (See Acts 19). If you want to know how to become a follower of Jesus, click here.

I didn't focus on demons very much in my book, When Angels Cry, because honestly I didn't want to give them much stage time. I preferred to focus on God's Angels, which I will do in next week's post. I've had some encounters with them as well!  And it was far more pleasant. 😀

Friday's Mad Mad World

Greetings Precious Watchers! The news really blew me away this week. I believe as you peruse the titles below, you'll agree. Three things stood out to me this week:

1. North Korea and the US may very well enter into war. This guy in North Korea is a lunatic who probably thinks he's god. He's not going to back down or give up until he has destroyed his entire country in a war that could cost thousands of lives.

2. What is up with transgenders?. A year ago, it was never talked about. Now, transgenders are everywhere, and we are supposed to sit back and say this is all normal. The worst part for me is that they are twisting the minds of our young people and forcing them into dangerous surgeries and hormone replacements. Pure satanic perversion and most likely demon possession.   Sorry, no PC stuff here.

3. This planet is reeling and about ready to explode. Look at the number of earthquakes, volcanoes, heat waves, sink holes.. etc.. that are going on around the planet. Jesus warned us these would come and come quicker and with more intensity.

More astounding information on the upcoming August 21st Eclipse over the US!

Back in June, I posted about an amazing event that is going to happen this month, in August, on the 21st. It's a total eclipse that crosses over the entire United States.  I'm going to copy a portion of that post below for those who don't remember or didn't see it. But I've recently come across some very very fascinating information to go along with it that may make this sign far more important than just another eclipse.

2017 Total Eclipse across America - Prophetic warning?

Many of you have no doubt heard about the upcoming total eclipse that will span across the United States this coming August 21st However, you may not realize that this eclipse may have significant prophetic meaning.

This eclipse is very rare because it tracks across the entire United States from west to east and it is a TOTAL eclipse, which means the sun will be completely blocked out. Here's a map of the past eclipses from from 1950 to 2000. The eclipses in blue are total eclipses. The ones in yellow are partial.

This eclipse is very rare because it tracks across the entire United States from west to east and it is a TOTAL eclipse, which means the sun will be completely blocked out

The last time a TOTAL eclipse CROSSED the United States was June 8th 1918!

This 2017 eclipse will turn day to night for TWO minutes and will be the most observed, filmed, and studied eclipse in American History.

Big deal you might say. But wait, there's more. There will be ANOTHER TOTAL Eclipse that crosses the United States just SEVEN years later, in effect marking the US with a Giant X.

In my original post I commented on how important the number 7 is in the Bible. 

I find it extremely interesting that this very RARE eclipse (the first one)  is happening just 33 days before the Great Sign of September 23 from Revelation 12. I also find it extremely interesting that just 7 years later another TOTAL eclipse will cross the US again (EXTREMELY RARE)  and form an X over the nation.  Is God trying to get our attention? Is He trying to tell us something? Has America drifted too far from Him, slid too far into apostasy and wickedness? I don't know.

What I do know is that God told us He would put Signs in the sky. (Genesis 1:14). Jesus, Himself told us that right before His coming, we would see Signs in the sun, moon, and stars

And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; 26 men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Luke 21:25-16

An even more important Scripture comes from Joel 2
“And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth:
Blood and fire and pillars of smoke.
The sun shall be turned into darkness,
And the moon into blood,
Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.

New Information

1. Blood Moons 
In the above Scripture from Joel, we see that before the Lord comes, the sun will become dark and the moon will turn to blood. If you're a prophecy buff, then you are well aware of the Blood-Moon Tetrad we just experienced in 2014-2015

First, what is a blood moon?  It is a total lunar eclipse where some of the sun’s rays curve around the earth causing the moon to appear red during a total eclipse. Because of its vivid color, a total lunar eclipse is often referred to by NASA as a Blood Red Moon.

Blood moons are not rare, but a tetrad (or 4 blood moons in a row) is very rare. A tetrad of them with a solar eclipse in the middle is highly rare. Back in 2014-2015, we had such an occurrence and many prophecy teachers believed something highly prophetic would happen during these years. Why? Mainly because these blood moons occurred on Jewish feast days.

This phenomenon of four consecutive blood moons coinciding with Jewish feast days has only occurred ten times since 1 AD and only three times since 1492 AD. The three times since 1492 are as follows:

    Tetrad of 1493-1494
    Tetrad of 1949-1950
    Tetrad of 1967-1968

Major events affecting the Jewish people have occurred in close proximity to all three of these tetrads. If you are interested in this topic, you'll find tons of information on this phenomena online. However, I'm only pointing it out here because of the prophecy in Joel where the moon turns to blood AND the sun to darkness before the great and terrible day of the Lord. So, we've had the amazing rare blood moons and we are about to witness the sun turning to darkness.  Just saying....

2. Season of Teshuvah

The August Eclipse is exactly 40 days from the Day of Atonement. If you're not familiar with Jewish feast days, you need to be. They are God's appointed days and highly important. Jesus fulfilled the first 4 of 7 when He was here on earth. The Day of Atonement is a day when the Jewish people come to the temple to atone for their sins each year. Forty days before that day, Teshuvah begins, which was a time in which the people were supposed to repent of their sins and get right with God before the Day of Atonement.
So, I got to wondering since the season of Teshuvah starts on the day of this eclipse, maybe God is trying to tell America to WAKE UP!  He's giving us one last time to repent of our sins and return to Him.

3. Sign of Jonah

“An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth." Matt 12:38-40 

Yes, when Jesus referred to the sign of Jonah, of course he meant that He would be in the grave 3 days and 3 nights, talking about His death and resurrection. But what if he meant something else TOO?  I've discovered that Scripture is multi-layered, especially when it comes to prophecy. 

Most of you know the story of Jonah in the Bible. God told him to go preach repentance to the people of Nineveh, but Jonah was afraid to go (Apparently from history, the Ninevites were pretty violent and nasty people).  Even though Jonah tried to get away on a ship, God had other plans and caused a storm to rise up and Jonah to get swallowed by a huge fish who just so happened to cough him up on the shores of Nineveh!

The Scriptures go on to say that Jonah preached to the people and the entire city repented and returned to God. Have you ever wondered why these vile people were so quick to repent, why it only took one rather smelly prophet to convince them of their sins and get them to turn back to God? Well,  a famous eclipse occurred right over Nineveh on June 14th, 763 BC. This is confirmed both by writings on cuneiform tables and NASA. At that time, and still today, eclipses were considered omens from God.

Also, according to historical records, two very bad plagues struck Nineveh in 765.  So, I'm thinking that the Ninevites felt that God was giving them many warnings already, even before Jonah walked on the scene. Which would certainly explain their quick leap to repentence.

So, is this incredible and rare eclipse over the US a warning from God to repent? Is this our last chance to repent and return to Him before Jesus returns?  There are certainly enough signs surrounding this eclipse to make one think.

What say you?
