Politics 2018: My views… for one week (day 7)

5 Nov

Note: I delete, block or unfriend contrary or oppositional comments

Today’s focus: My top two priorities when I vote

1. What is God’s will concerning the party and candidates.  Sometimes we know this through confirmed prophetic voices.

2. Do the party and candidates 
value all human life?  This is obvious through their rhetoric and voting record. 

You see, any person or society that doesn’t esteem the basic value of life, will be skewed in every other value.  Currently, this is horribly obvious in many cultures and nations around the world.  Societies who don’t have a basic value for every human life, eventually devolve into:

Abortion of any stage of the preborn… even after-birth abortions
Selling human body parts
Oppression, exploitation and subjugation of women
Human trafficking / slavery

Religious jihad martyrdom – including by women and children
Euthanasia of elderly, infirmed, handicapped, undesirable, etc.
Extermination of other religions
Extermination of those with mindsets deemed undesirable

Ethnic cleansings

Whether in full-blown expression, experimentation or rhetoric, each of these atrocities has reared its ugly head in America.  To me, each of these terrible cancers in our society is only an evidence of a deeper root issue; we don’t value life.  And if we don’t value life, then another person’s undesirable presence will be all we need to terminate their life… no big deal!

Why should life be respected?  Because Scriptures says… and most people believe, that all life comes from God.

“… since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things…” – Acts 17:25

I understand that we need persons in government who are qualified to govern well in all the areas of society.  But if they are not the person of God’s choosing… and if they don’t value life, then everything else will reflect this vital and crucial error… with devastating evidence in all levels of society.

“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when the wicked rule, the people mourn.” – Prov 29:2

So then, I have to ask myself whether the party and person on the ballot is God’s choice… and whether they value life.  How did your party and candidate align with these basic priorities?

A couple of weeks ago, Debbie and I voted absentee, because we’re going to be out of town tomorrow.  We’ve done our part.  We hope that you’ll feel inspired and honored to fulfill your patriotic privilege tomorrow… “rendering unto Caesar” your vote… and “rendering unto God” a contagious life filled with His presence.

“Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s; and to God the things that are God’s.” – Matt 22:21

God bless you… and God bless the United States of America!


Politics 2018: My views… for one week (day 6)

Today’s focus is: Christianity under siege in our nation.

There has been a strong movement to secularize our society, especially in the last 5 or 6 decades.  Part of that movement is to reinterpret the original intents of the Constitutional signers when they wrote about ‘separation of church and state’.  Honest research clearly reveals that the Framers intended for there to be no inhibiting of the church’s function or even of its influence in government.  Here is a direct quote from the First Amendment of the Constitution:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”

Paraphrase: Religion in America cannot be codified into law, required by law, or prevented by law or used as a litmus test as to whether one can practice in any level of American life.

It does not mean that religion can not influence government!!!! It means that government cannot influence, govern or restrict religion.  Our Constitutional Framers were mostly God fearing men who wrote strongly about the absolute necessity for men and government to be built and function upon Godly principles in a relationship to God.

Here are some quotes from our early American fathers:

“We have no government armed with power, capable of contending with human passions if it is unbridled by morality and religion . . . Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” – John Adams

“Religion and morality are the essential pillars of civil society.” – George Washington

“[O]nly a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.” – Benjamin Franklin

“[T]he Christian religion, in its purity, is the basis, or rather the source of all genuine freedom in government. . . . and I am persuaded that no civil government of a republican form can exist and be durable in which the principles of that religion have not a controlling influence.” – Noah Webster

And what does the Bible say?

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord. – Ps 33:12

And if you forget the Lord your God and go after other gods and serve them and worship them, I solemnly warn you today that you shall surely perish. – Deut 8:19

So without ‘religion’ in our society and government, we perish.  With God, we are blessed.  Then, if we have a choice, that choice should be a no brainer.

Our early fathers chose Godly moorings and principles for our country and warned that if we strayed from Godliness our Constitutional Republic would not be able to endure. Sobering!

Okay!!!  So we have elections that give us the opportunity to choose.  With that in mind, who will we choose to rule over us?

Now, let me list some ways that Christianity has been under brazen attack. Consider your political party and candidate: Do they campaign for, support or endorse any of these?

Morality issues
– “trans”, “fluid”, “non” sexuality
Marriage redefined other than male & female

– 1st, 2nd, 3rd trimester
– partial birth abortion
– after-birth abortion
Fights to stop prayer in schools

Attacks Christmas and the use of the name ‘Christmas’
Wants to ban Bibles
Booed God at their national political convention
Sued to put Christian baker and artists out of business
Sued to force Nuns to violate their beliefs
Wants certain Christian doctrines banned as hate speech
Removes crosses, mangers and 10 commandments in civic places
Said “the church must evolve”
Said “religious beliefs must be changed”
Force Christian medical professionals to violate religious convictions
Worked to ban Christian groups on campuses
Christian homeschoolers targeted

Colleges teach the evils of “Christian privilege”

How did your candidate fare?  Are they associated with any of these attacks against Christianity?  Will he/she enhance your Christian freedoms… or will he/she make you a badgered Christian in a Godless government and society?

As a citizen of our great American Republic, we have a most amazing privilege and responsibility to vote, not only for our own freedom to serve God, but for the freedom of our future generations.

Please vote Tuesday November 6!

Tomorrow, I’ll list a few of my personal ‘biggies’… reasons that motivate my vote.


Politics 2018: My views… for one week (day 5)

3 Nov

Note: I delete, block or unfriend contrary or oppositional comments.

I love knowing what God thinks.  It’s so liberating when we know what He thinks and begin to ‘track’ with Him.  It empowers us!  No more ambiguity or doubt.  Actually, we were made to walk, talk and partner with God.  And the cool thing is that he wants to train us to recognize His voice (John 10:27) and partner with Him as a “friend with a friend”.  God’s ways are so much better… and they’re so much more fun!

Today, I’m highlighting Lance Wallnau.  He’s a very respected man who is equally comfortable standing before world government officials or preaching in a church.  His insights are cutting edge and his prophetic words are fresh and bold.  I think you’ll especially like the following!

Relevant Lance Wallnau prophecies:

“Donald Trump is a wrecking ball to the spirit of political correctness.” – Oct 2016

“I was given an image of Trump along with the words “45th president of the United States” and a directive to read Isaiah 45 which begins with “Thus saith the Lord to Cyrus whom I have anointed…” Cyrus was a heathen king whom God used to protect the Jews.  God can raise up secular rulers “to protect His interests.”  Specifically, God used Cyrus in three ways: to deal with terror, to restore economic stability and to honor the Jews’ houses of faith.  God will sometimes raise up non-believers and confer on them “common grace” (not the grace of salvation but grace to protect and assist in carrying out a mission) so they can be used by Him.  Past leaders like Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill and FDR are other examples of Cyrus-type leaders.”

Let’s read Isaiah 45… and as we do, let’s replace Cyrus’ name with Trump’s name and see “if the shoe fits” for both men.

1 “This is what the Lord says to his anointed,
to Cyrus, whose right hand I take hold of
to subdue nations before him
and to strip kings of their armor,
to open doors before him
so that gates will not be shut:
2 I will go before you
and will level the mountains;
I will break down gates of bronze
and cut through bars of iron.
3 I will give you hidden treasures,
riches stored in secret places,
so that you may know that I am the Lord,
the God of Israel, who summons you by name.
4 For the sake of Jacob my servant,
of Israel my chosen,
I summon you by name
and bestow on you a title of honor,
though you do not acknowledge me.
5 I am the Lord, and there is no other;
apart from me there is no God.
I will strengthen you,
though you have not acknowledged me,
6 so that from the rising of the sun
to the place of its setting
people may know there is none besides me.
I am the Lord, and there is no other.
7 I form the light and create darkness,
I bring prosperity and create disaster;
I, the Lord, do all these things.

(Read Ezra 1 for more on King Cyrus)

Did you notice that nowhere in this passage does God say, “I’m picking Cyrus/Trump because he was a Godly man.”  The actual fact is, Cyrus/Trump is a heathen… he “hadn’t acknowledged” God.  But God needed a man to do a specific job… and He can pick whomever He wants.  God says, “I will summon you by name”…. and God’s intention is to use Cyrus/Trump as a ‘wrecking ball’ to “subdue nations”.  God will give him “treasures and riches” so that Cyrus/Trump would know that God is the Lord.

Does any of this sound like the prophecies that we’ve visited over the last 4 days?  And it even explains some of Trump’s foibles, follies and social failures.

But let’s move on.  To confirm Wallnau’s parallel of Cyrus and Trump, you won’t believe what happened in Israel this year!  At the relocation of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, several Jewish entities created a ‘temple coin’ to commemorate two foreign leaders who lived about 2500 years apart, but who rose to strongly support Israel… yep, you guessed it – it is Cyrus & Trump.

In their 70th year of captivity in Babylon, King Cyrus authorized and funded the Jews’ return to their land to rebuild Jerusalem and their temple.

On the 70th anniversary of Israel becoming a nation, Trump declared Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and moved the US Embassy to Jerusalem.

Can anyone say, AMAZING! 

Back in 2016, when Wallnau gave his comparison of Trump and Cyrus, no one could have guessed that two years later, Israel would mint a ‘coin’ emblazoned with both of their heads.  This is startling confirmation of Wallnau’s word, in my opinion!  Although both were highly unlikely picks, Trump, like Cyrus, is being used by God to bless the Jews.

Wallnau has met with Trump on multiple occasions and in a recent podcast, Wallnau conveys Trump’s warning and entreaty to Christians

Another time Trump speaks to Christian leaders: “Every other ideological group in the country has a voice.  If you don’t mind me saying so, you guys have gotten soft,” Trump said, according to Wallnau.  “People who identify themselves as ‘Christian’ make up probably the single largest constituency in the country, but there is absolutely no unity, no punch … not in political consensus or any other area I can see.” – Trump 2016

In the last few days, we’ve highlighted four clear prophetic voices that heralded the similar content… and were spoken long before the last election, saying that Trump would become America’s president.  And the words came to pass!  In my mind and heart, that clears up any doubt as to whether Trump is our God-appointed president.  I don’t have to love all of his actions and attributes, but at the very least, I MUST NOT oppose him.  Case in point: Saul had murder in his heart to kill David, but David said, “I will not touch the Lord’s anointed.” (I Sam 26:9; Ps 105:15) (I’m not likening Trump to Saul, I am only highlighting the fear of the Lord that governed David’s responses.)

Disclaimer again: I am not vouching for the future claims of any of these prophetic voices!  It’s up to you to determine what you believe.  For me, I must pray for Trump and release Heaven’s angel guardians around him to escort him into the fulfillment of all that is in God’s heart for his presidency.

Tomorrow we’ll talk about how our serious core life-values affect everything else; personal life, societal norms, business decisions, government policies and politics, etc.  When the foundation is flawed, most of the rest of the house will give evidence of that problem in the foundation.  


Politics 2018: My views… for one week (day 4)

1 Nov

Note: I delete, block or unfriend contrary or oppositional comments.

Question: Is God political? 

I like a short passage in Joshua 5:13-15 where God lets it be known that He’s not political… He’s here for His own agenda.

“Now when Joshua was near Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with a drawn sword in His hand.  Joshua approached Him and asked, “Are You for us or for our enemies?”  “Neither,” He replied.  “I have now come as commander of the Lord’s army.”  Then Joshua fell face down in reverence and asked Him, “What does my Lord have to say to His servant?”  The commander of the Lord’s army replied, “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy.”  And Joshua did so.…”

Notice, when God made His intentions known, Joshua didn’t argue.  Sadly, we haven’t developed the ability to hear His voice very well.  When the person of God’s choosing isn’t nice, tidy and wrapped with a pretty bow, we humans tend to get offended… unless we can see from God’s perspective.  We live mostly from our brain and emotions.  Isa 55:8 seems to say just this, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways”.  His wisdom is superior to ours.  

Someone may ask, “Well then, what about President Obama?  Was he God’s choosing?”  We’d have to say “Yes”, because “all authority is given by God” (Romans 13:1).  We may not know all the reasons why God allowed Obama’s administration, but one thing is for sure, his immoral and anti-Judeo/Christian policies activated lethargic Christians to unprecedented levels of prayer for righteousness in our nation.  Do you suppose God knew we needed some motivation… so He gave our country who we wanted and voted for.  And as a result, praying people rallied like never before.

This principle is not unlike the Biblical history of the kings of Israel and Judah.  When they forgot God and experienced the consequences of their Godlessness, they cried to the Lord.  And then the Lord heard their cry… and always sent a deliverer, etc.

Now, here’s my 3rd prophetic voice declaring God’s intentions.  Remember: God says, “Surely the Lord God does nothing unless He reveals His secret counsel to His servants the prophets.”  (Amos 3:7)   

Relevant Mark Taylor prophecies (from the recent movie, ‘Trump Prophecies’)

“Trump will win the election… and Trump will win a second term.”

“The dollar will become the strongest currency in the world and the news media will come to see that Trump is in the right.”  “The Spirit of God says, “5, that’s right, 5 Supreme Court Justices will be appointed by my new president, my anointed.  I will choose 5 through my anointed to keep those alive.  I will stack the court with those that I choose, to send a clear message to the enemy, that, “You lose!”  This is the miracle that I will perform, so that MY COURT will be reformed.”

Other future predictions by Mark Taylor: “The landmark Supreme Court ruling on abortion in the Roe v Wade case will be overturned… this 2018 midterm election will result in a “red tsunami”, strengthening Republican control of both houses of Congress.  Barack Obama will be charged with treason and Trump will authorize the arrest of “thousands of corrupt officials, many of whom are part of a massive satanic pedophile ring”.  Trump will also force the release of cures for cancer and Alzheimer’s that are currently being withheld by the pharmaceutical industry.”– Mark Taylor – Nov 2012

The Trump Prophecies Book & Movie  This movie played about a month ago in the theaters across our nation.  Beyond the story of how a New York firefighter came to make these staggering prophecies, the movie was primarily a serious call to ernest prayer for our nation.

Disclaimer: Bear in mind that because I’m highlighting these prophetic voices doesn’t mean that I’m completely endorsing them.  They are just humans like you and me.  But our objective should be to determine the parts of the message that are ‘of God’, without idolizing… or getting offended with the human ‘delivery-man’.  This ability is one of the hallmarks of maturity.  

Tomorrow, you may be surprised to read where Scripture seems to speak about a symbolic Trump.  My 4th ‘prophetic voice’ declared this Biblical passage long before the ‘impossible’ 2016 election of Trump… and since then, a most long-shot international event occurred which seems to validate Trump’s presidency in a most unusual way.  You’ll be amazed!


Politics 2018: My views… for one week (day 3)

31 Oct

Note: I delete, block or unfriend contrary or oppositional comments.

Question: What qualifies someone to be chosen by God?

In our society, the most popular, ‘politically correct’, the richest, the most skilled or qualified, the most handsome or beautiful… and sometimes the most ‘righteous’, gets the nod.  But not one son or daughter of God got picked because of any of these… or any other ‘good’ quality (Titus 3:5).  In fact, we deserved death… EACH ONE OF US! (Romans 3:23 & 6:23)  But God loves to show love despite our undeservedness.  He just hopes we receive it.  He’s just that good!

To prove that God isn’t looking for our ‘best side’ to determine His choice, consider some of the people He chose: Samson-a womanizer, Zacchaeus-a public thief, Peter-a betrayer, Paul-a serial murderer, David-an adulterer, Rahab-a prostitute… just to name a few.  But look where they ended up… they became significant ‘players’ in affecting God’s purposes in the earth.  With this line-up of ‘losers’, we’d have to say that God’s reason for His choosings, are beyond the obvious, to say the least.

Simply said, God chooses whom He chooses and He promotes who He promotes. (Romans 9:18; Ps 75:6-7).  He can baffle our minds… and do it for reasons that He doesn’t have to explain.  He’s God and we’re not!

We’ll pick up this subject tomorrow.

Kat Kerr audio, click here. (about 6 mins long)

Here’s another prolific prophetic voice who has been around for many years and is still very active.

Relevant Kat Kerr prophecies

“Donald Trump will win the 2016 Presidential Election. And, not only that, he will win reelection and then his VP choice Mike Pence will succeed him.  They will extend the hand of the government to the Believer.  There will be shock wave after shock wave.  God has already pronounced Trump as the winner.” – Aug 2016

“Trump will sit in the White House.  Absolutely, for sure, Trump will win!  It will be a landslide.  God’s plan for the next 24 years is to have righteousness, justice and freedom in the White House.  God is voting this time.  God has an agenda.  It is for America to be greater than it ever has been before.  Trump will affect the Senate and he will affect the Supreme Court.  Trump will live on Pennsylvania Ave.  Even if you don’t agree, you will benefit from it.” – Oct 2016

For more on Kat Kerr:

You didn’t get tripped up by the ‘package’ that the prophecy came in, did you?  A pink haired happy woman who talks with God didn’t offend you did she?  Okay, good!  Remember, these prophecies were given when Trump’s election was next to ‘impossible’.  And since incredibly impossible parts of the prophecy have come to pass, what would that say about the parts of the predictions that are still in the future?  Very interesting, indeed!

So what is my reason for bringing these prophetic voices into the narrative?  To help us ascertain whether God has chosen this administration.  If God chose this administration, then that knowledge should impact our words, prayers, actions and voting.

Two more very strong prophetic voices to come. . . .

Tomorrow’s question: “Is God political?”


Politics 2018: My views… for one week (day 2)

30 Oct

Question: Is this current administration, God’s will for America?
Before the last election, many prayers were offered in request for God’s will to be done in our government. So did He answer our prayer? If we can determine that Trump is God’s answer to our prayers, then our views of President Trump, prayers for his administration and our support of him should likely change to reflect that. So for the next several days, I’ll offer some comments and insights.
I’m going to highlight four prophetic voices that seem to predict Trump’s presidency. And although I was very familiar with each of the four prophetic voices BEFORE Trump became president, I wasn’t ready to publically put my reputation on the line for what they had to say, back in 2016. They had prophesied some wild and ‘crazy’ things that were nearly impossible to believe. But now that key parts of their prophecies have come to pass (namely that Donald Trump got elected, against all odds), I’m firmly confident that God has appointed Trump to be the president of the USA. I voted for him and he has my support. Again, I’m not ready to put my reputation on the line for the parts of these prophecies still in the future, but they certainly have my attention. Here are a few parts of their prophecies that you’ll likely find interesting.

Relevant Kim Clement prophecies:
In two separate appearances in 2007 – long before anyone could have imagined a Trump presidency — Clement gave these striking prophecies about the New York billionaire.
“Trump shall become a trumpet. I will raise up the Trump to become a trumpet…”
“It shall come to pass that the man that I place in the highest office shall go in whispering my name. But God said when he enters into the office, he will be shouting out by the power of the Spirit.
“For I shall fill him with my Spirit when he goes into office and there will be a praying man in the highest seat in your land.”

Click here for Kim Clement audio

“Listen to the word of the Lord, God says, ‘I will put at your helm for two terms a president who will pray, but he will not be a praying president when he starts.” – Feb 10, 2007
“I will put him in office and then I will baptize him with the Holy Spirit and my power, says the Lord of Hosts. There will be a praying president, not a religious one. For I will fool the people, says the Lord. I will fool the people, yes I will. God says the one that is chosen shall go in and they shall say, ‘He has hot blood’. For the Spirit of God says, ‘Yes, he may have hot blood, but he will bring the walls of protection on this country in a greater way and the economy of the country shall change rapidly,’ says the Lord of Hosts.”
For me, these words are a strikingly close fit for our current president. And remember, these predictions were made LONG before Trump was even a Republican presidential nominee. Kim Clement is just one of four prophetic voices that I’m highlighting this week… with three more to come in the next few days. Each have startling predictions that not only prophesied of Trump’s presidency but of the next few administrations and the Supreme Court and . . .
Tomorrow, we’ll start out by asking, “What qualifies someone to be chosen by God?”

Politics 2018: My views… for one week (day 1)

29 Oct

Our country’s next general election on Nov 6, 2018, is just one week away!

The last presidential election was without a doubt a watershed event for our country, maybe one of the most critical elections our country has ever experienced. And because of the seriousness of this next election, for ONE WEEK I will be posting some of my personal political perspectives on my personal FB page.

Note: You may not agree with me. I’m quite OK with that! I have never posted oppositional comments on anyone’s public page… and never intend to.

If you don’t like my views, don’t read them… or feel free to unfollow or unfriend me. But if you feel compelled to post something contrary to my theme, you should know that I’m very comfortable with deleting contentious or mean comments… and blocking or unfriending people!

I understand that my views will not sway those staunchly holding to an opposing view. But there are many who are undecided and I intend to do what I can to activate them into meaningful votes.

I realize that our nation’s ultimate ‘salvation’ does not rest in the hands of a man or a woman. It is God who raises up or demotes (Dan 2:21). But our heart realities (Godly or not) and our actions (or lack of them) strongly set precedent and open ‘doors’ in the natural and the spiritual realms (Prov 14:34). So, I intend to pray and to vote…and to activate others to do the same.

If you would like to follow my postings these next seven days, visit my FB page at:
