He did it! Donald Trump, the man so many refuted, the man the media hates, the man who even many in his own party disavowed, the man who endured endless counts of bashing, being made a laughing-stock, and touted as nothing more than a loud mouth, has actually won the 2016 presidential election against all odds! It is nothing short of miraculous!
The fact that this man with no military or previous political experience has risen to the top and taken the office of the 45th President of the United States is a very significant sign of the times! At no other time in history has a presidential election been so important and vital to America.
As I read through the pages of headlines for Donald Trump’s presidential election victory it seems as though most of the news reporting agencies have toned it down. Not very many seem excited about the fact that the man most thought would never on God’s green earth have a chance to win the election, let alone get nominated in the first place, has majorly and decisively upset the establishment and his battle with Hilary Clinton!
We have to give credit to Donald Trump for not giving up or giving in, for standing firm in his beliefs and fighting to the end! Against all odds, extreme odds, President Elect Trump has triumphed over a crooked political establishment.
Donald Trump did not just happen to make it on a whim, no, he has been placed where he is by God Almighty, and he will be placed into office as the President of the United States of America by God Almighty!
“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.“
Donald Trump has vowed to bring America together again, to unite us as one nation, and to work hard for all Americans. He graciously gave Hilary Clinton praise for the work she has done for our country and for a hard-fought campaign.
We cannot place all of our hope in the president of the United States nor should we, however, the person placed into this position will determine much of what happens in America and in the world. It will determine if Christians have the right to stand up for their faith, if we can freely and openly express our views without being persecuted for it. It will determine laws, many of which would be immoral if the wrong Supreme Court justices are placed into office. It will make many of our lives more productive, give us freedoms and protections that we need in order to sustain a peaceful life.
There still looms over our head the question if God will judge America? Just because Donald Trump has been elected the next president does not mean that God will not judge us for our sins. For example, abortion is still legal, this is an abomination to the Lord. However Mr. Trump has stated that it is one of his goals to overturn Roe versus Wade, the abortion ruling by the Supreme Court in 1973. Donald Trump has claimed to be a born again Christian, and I believe that he will to the best of his ability uphold God’s morals and values. Time will tell if Donald Trump can and will lead America back to God!
Whomever is president, we must always seek the Lord, our hope is in Him, our salvation lies in Jesus Christ! He is our blessed hope, the only road to salvation. However, we are the salt and the light of the world, we must make wise choices and decisions, we must “do” what is right in the eyes of the Lord, not just think about it or talk about it. We are judged by what we do and what is in our heart, and what we do or don’t do will be judged.
Congratulations Mr. Trump for a victory well fought and well deserved! May God richly bless you, guide you, and protect you! In Jesus holy name, Amen.
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
