Awake True Angry Christians! Don't Fall For Donald Trump!
It is not often that I feel so compelled to state my feelings and thoughts concerning current events. However, the pending presidential election is one of the most serious events that our Nation has possibly ever been faced with. I as a Christian as well as a citizen of this great country I see that there is an urgency that we must not ignore. We have to act now before it is too late! “Awake True Angry Christians”.
We must stand up and be counted. Yes we must even vote in the primaries. I have never voted in the primary elections before myself. However, I am in line to do just that this coming Tuesday morning before I go to work. I will be in line at 6:30 am at my local voting station.
I want to address this article with focus on one area. There are many areas that need to be covered but, the area of true Christians is the one I will be covering. When I speak of true Christians, I am referring to those who have have had an experience in their life and not an event as my former pastor so equidistantly phrased it. What do I mean? To become a true Christian, the Holy Spirit truly has to convict you. This means that without this conviction, there is no real salvation. (You are not a Christian without this).
This conviction followed by asking Jesus for forgiveness and being forgiven is the experience. Now, many have attended church, been a member, or were baptized. Some claim to be Christians because somewhere in their family history someone claimed to be or was a Christian. This does not in itself make you a Christian. With this what we have is an “event”. Any of these possible scenarios may make you have a religion that you follow or that you claim. When you have a true experience, you know it. You will feel the change when it happens. There is no mistake of this knowledge when it happens to you. The Holy Spirit is living in you. Your life will show this.
With this being said, “Awake True Angry Christians”. Is it a Christian like quality to be angry about an injustice? Yes, it is. But how do we deal with it?
So this election as far as the Republican or GOP is concerned, is as crazy as it gets. Why were there so many contending for the GOP nomination? It is because we the people are upset, disappointed, enraged, or very angry to say the least. We are sick of more of the same that does not work. We are sick of those we elect doing nothing let alone what they promised they would do. We are sick of the games and the corrupt mess that has taken over Washington. We want and DEMAND our country back! I am with you. I am one of those.
Let us think about human nature as we are all a part of this the human race. When we are angry and do not know what to do we are naturally excited when someone enters the race and reinforces our anger and upset to say the very least. What is even better? When this person lashes out speaking for us. This is even better. Wow, what a find, blessing, luck or whatever one decides to name it. When Donald Trump announced he was running for office, many such as myself at the time were excited and joyful at the mere thought. This is more than we could have possibly hoped for, or was it?
My excitement soon turned to great concern and disappoint to say the least. I like everyone else knew of Donald Trump. I knew of his name from the time I was very young. I was not a Trump follower and did not know much beyond the fact that he was a very wealthy business man.
It did not take long before warnings of danger manifested where this man is concerned. Much began to surface. I like many am able to think for myself and see dangerous behavior and such. As many I was appalled at this man who I was thinking and hoping was the answer we all needed. The way in which he conducted himself was not even close to what a business man would be much less a nominee for the president of the United States of America! At the same time I watched so many blindly promoting his man. What are they thinking?
From this point things with Donald just deteriorated more and more. Every crude, nasty, disrespectful, and untruth that came out of the mouth of this man didn't seem to hurt his draw one bit to say the least. I am not of the Catholic religion, but I was in a state of disbelief when Donald attacked the Pope. Who in their right mind would even attempt to be that kind of disrespectful? There was a better way to respond. One that any of us reading this would have no trouble coming up with. For Donald, he could not come up with anything professional at all. To make it worse, he for the first time, read his statement. My what does that tell us?
What are we seeing here? At first you would think that he only has the following of those that as adults still have the mind set of very immature individual. Maybe even those that are of the “thug” groups. I do still believe this is the case. However, in addition, many, yes many Christ followers are standing with this man. ( astounding that the president of Liberty University is endorsing this man). Donald Trump claims he is not only a Christian, but the best Christian running. Oh please say this is not true!
So Donald has no idea what a Christian is and he shows no evidence that he is or ever was even one in a religious form only. Donald has been used to slander true Christians as well as great men of God that are running along side of him. Donald claims that Ted Cruz of all people is not a Christian, and he is the biggest lair ever. The Bible warns that in the last days men will call “EVIL GOOD AND GOOD EVIL”. What a great example this is. Donald has stated that he is most “christian” and at the sometime tells us that he does not need to ask forgiveness from God or anyone as he does nothing wrong! Come on Christians. How can we accept this as asking forgiveness from our sins and redemption is the only way to heaven not to mention the only way to be a Christian. I as a Christian feel as though we need to speak up.
Trump Says He Never Asks Forgivness
“AWAKE TRUE ANGRY CHRISTIANS”
Are you one of those that have fallen into supporting a man that is playing out what the Bible Warns us about?
Why then are there an overwhelming number of Christians that are on the Trump wagon? Simple.
Donald appeals to our anger. Remember Christians are angry too. We are not supporting the man that lines up with what God's will is. We are so angry we are just pushing back at Washington without thinking. So if we do not support Trump how can this mess of a nation be fixed?
“ If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2nd Chronicles 7:14
So does this mean that we cannot vote for the person that we feel will heal the land because he is feeding our anger for his own gain? Well, let us go further.
We are to pray for God's will. We are not to pray “if it be your will”. We know that God's will is for us as a nation to return to the principles we were founded on . We as a nation were founded on the principles of God. This is the will of God. God's will is for us to live according to his principles.
God blessed America beyond measure. Over a period of time we have strayed form what our nation was built on. Our country has been in a downward tail spend every since. This is why we are now as a people so angry. This is what happens when we as a country tosses out God. This is why we are desperate to change our Nation's path. This is a great thing when we begin to fight back and take action. With this comes a warning people.
Do we believe what God said? 2nd Chronicles 7:14
Do we believe that God will heal our land and we will return to the strong nation that we were in the past? If my people who are called by my name.... Will humble themselves and pray... (what is God's promise)? God never has nor will he ever break his promises to his people.
“If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sins and heal their land”.
We are very angry and rightfully so. Our nation has gone too far and we as Christians have had a part in allowing this. We as Christians have the power of God living in us as his Holy Spirit. The same power that rose Jesus from the grave lives in us. Think about it. God told us this.
“The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you”. Romans 8:11
The Power Is In Us
People we have so much power, not our own but the power of God living in us. True Christians have the Holy Spirit living in them. I ask you to remember just how powerful God is. We are to be the hands and feet of God. We as Christians have a great responsibility to vote for men or women who most reflex God in their life. Not ones or false profits that claim they know God. We are to know the difference. We are to look for actions and deeds in one's life. We are not to make our decisions in such a matter our of emotions of anger and hate.
When we support and do our part to bring America back to its values and Christ, we MUST vote for a man or woman that is a true Christian. Have faith that God is in control. Have faith that a true man of God Will do what he says and has proven it by his life. There are a couple or maybe more running for the GOP nomination that are true men of God. Shame on us that call ourselves Christians that do not support and vote for one of our own. We will be judged my our heavenly father.
So you may still be thinking that you cannot trust Cruz because he has been in government. Well, maybe you do not know him. He is the most “out-sider” of the group. Why do you think the politicians hate him? Why do you think the media does not like him? Why is every one scared of him? People he is a true man of God and has proven it with his life. He is the only man that has stood up before the supreme court and has won for us. He alone stands for 21 plus hours and states his case in congress for us. What more could we ask for?
I am not a pastor. I can reveal who I am endorsing for the GOP nomination. As you know by now I am voting for Ted Cruz. I am voting in the primary. This will be a first for me. I will be at the poll at 6:30 am Tuesday morning. People we have to fight against the evil one that is blinding Christians and others. There is some type of supernatural draw that Donald has. This is because of our own anger. He comes as an angle of light for many indeed. Do not be fooled our nation is at stake.
