Just a couple of quick thoughts on this election. First of all, as discussed before, nothing happens these days that is outside the will of God, especially when it comes to the leadership of a world power. Secondly, it immediately makes me go back to "plan A", which carried my thinking years ago, and that consists of the idea that the gathering up of the Church Saints will be the triggering event for the major prophetic events to come (primarily the Tribulation, but also Gog-Magog) - which would effectively take the U.S. out of the picture. With a strong rational president backed by a strong military, it would be almost impossible for the antichrist to rise to world power. I'll be interested to see post-election commentary by our prophecy watching brothers and sisters as the week evolves.
Fed up with Washington and feeling left behind, supporters of Republican Donald Trump upended the U.S. presidential race, electing a political newcomer they say offers the country a shot at dramatic change.
Once dismissed by Trump's Democratic rival Hillary Clinton as "deplorables," supporters interviewed on Tuesday shrugged off his late-night tweeted insults, allegations against him of sexual misconduct and dire warnings from many in the Republican establishment that the businessman-turned-reality-television-star would throw U.S. economic and foreign policy into disarray.
The economy, terrorism and healthcare ranked as the top three concerns facing Americans casting ballots in Tuesday's election, according to an early reading from the Reuters/Ipsos Election Day poll of about 35,000 people.
"The freedom-loving Americans pushed back against the elites and the globalists. They might win in the long run, but we're not dead yet," said Andrew Dye, 48, of Dexter, Michigan.
"I think this big country is getting a little too far left a little too quickly and some people finally woke up and said enough," said Dye, a partner in a small management consulting firm.
Cuban-American Sarah Gird, 67, described herself as an independent who had felt let down after twice voting for Democratic President Barack Obama.
"I'm not conservative at all," she said. But Obama "didn't produce anything." In contrast, she said she trusted Trump would fix the economy.
"I think he's sincere, he's truthful, he means what he says," said Gird, adding she thought Trump would address poverty and jobs in African-American neighborhoods.
For many, the vote was a rejection of Clinton, whose use of a private email server during her time in government came to symbolize what is wrong with Washington.
"All the corruption. I'm tired of business as usual, being sold out all these years," said Kevin Barrett, 57, in Nashville.
Tom Kipp, 53, an architect also of Nashville, said he voted for Trump because "we need somebody in there not beholden to anyone."
"Our checks and balances system is beyond being compromised. I don't say he's my prime candidate, but he's my best option," Kipp said.
Others found Trump's promise to build a wall on the southern border with Mexico appealing.
"Last-minute decision: I changed my mind to Trump," said Lisa Ciafone, 48, of Madeira Beach, Florida, citing her concerns about illegal immigration and the rising costs of health insurance. "It made me lean towards Trump."
Vicki DeLira, 54, a dental hygienist from Schererville, Indiana, grew up a Democrat but voted for Trump because it was time for change even if it means "a little bit of chaos."
"It will be a little different atmosphere for a non-politician to be in the White House," DeLira said. "But I think there's enough politicians around him to help round them out."
Todd Recknagel, managing partner of private equity firm Three20 Capital Group, said the caricature of Trump as a "monster" was overdone.
"He is an effective business man at the end of the day. So things are never quite as good as they appear and things are never quite as bad as they appear in life and I think he can make a decent president," said Recknagel, 52, from Panama City Beach, Florida.
As Trump became the projected winner in state after state, fans from Arkansas, Texas and Virginia sitting on velvet sofas in the lobby of his new Washington luxury hotel just down the street from the White House celebrated as waiters popped champagne.
Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulated Republican Donald Trump on his victory in the US presidential election on Wednesday, 9 November. The Russian president has sent a telegram to Donald Trump, in which he wished him success as the head of state.
Putin also set out a hope to take joint effort to take the Russian-American relations out from the crisis.
According to the Russian president, building a constructive dialogue between Moscow and Washington meets the interests of not only the two countries, but also of the entire world community. "It is important to act according to the principles of equality, mutual respect and taking account of each other's positions," Putin said.
Earlier on Wednesday, adviser to the Russian President Sergei Glazyev announced the impending reset in relations between Russia and the USA as a result of Trump's victory in the election. "The rest of US-Russian relations is inevitable," said Glazyev.
"The Americans objectively have two choices: either another world war or consent to a multipolar world. Clinton was a symbol of World War III, but Trump now has an opportunity to change this situation," he stressed.
Putin on Trump victory: Russia is ready to restore relations with US
Russia is ready and looks forward to restoring bilateral relations with the United States, Russian President Vladimir Putin said, commenting on the news of Donald Trump's victory in the US presidential election.
“We heard [Trump's] campaign rhetoric while still a candidate for the US presidency, which was focused on restoring the relations between Russia and the United States,” President Putin said, speaking at the presentation ceremony of foreign ambassadors' letters of credentials in Moscow.
“We understand and are aware that it will be a difficult path in the light of the degradation in which, unfortunately, the relationship between Russia and the US are at the moment,” he added.
Speaking about the degraded state of relations between the countries, the president once again stressed that “it is not our fault that Russia-US relations are as you see them.”
Earlier today, in a message to Donald Trump the Russian President expressed confidence that the dialogue between Moscow and Washington, in keeping with each other’s views, meets the interests of both Russia and the US.
The Russian leader noted in the message that he hopes to address some “burning issues that are currently on the international agenda, and search for effective responses to the challenges of the global security,” RIA Novosti reported.
On top of it, Putin has expressed confidence that “building a constructive dialogue between Moscow and Washington, based on principles of equality, mutual respect and each other's positions, meets the interests of the peoples of our countries and of the entire international community.”
Russian State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin has also expressed hope that Trump’s victory in the presidential election will help pave the way for a more constructive dialogue between Moscow and Washington.
“The current US-Russian relations cannot be called friendly. Hopefully, with the new US president a more constructive dialogue will be possible between our countries,” he said.
“The Russian Parliament will welcome and support any steps in this direction,” Volodin added on Wednesday.
Commenting on Donald Trump's victory in the US presidential election, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Russia will judge the new US administration by its actions and take appropriate steps in response.
“We are ready to work with any US leader elected by the US people,”the minister said on Wednesday.
“I can’t say that all the previous US leaders were always predictable. This is life, this is politics. I have heard many words but we will judge by actions.”
According to many observers, US-Russia relations are now at their lowest point since the Cold War. Putin has repeatedly noted that the worsening of Russia’s relations with the US“was not our choice,” howev
The US will have to negotiate with Russia on finding solutions to international issues as no state is now able to act alone, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said last week, adding that problems in bilateral relations began to mount long before the Ukrainian crisis broke out in 2014.
Check out MSNBC....suicide watch us an understatement. I am volunteering to help pack all the socialists that said they were leaving if Trump won....hit the road.
Thank You Lord!
Hey Hillary.....how do we smell from here??
Obama is really going to have to make it obvious to the world if he insists on war with Russia now. Putin opened the door to a preferred and successful deescalation last night.
Yo...YO...Hillary....they don't allow personal assistants in prison. Your staff will have their own rooms, not necessarily in the same facility. :)
Hillary, maybe we'll smell less offensive at your next address. :):)
Sincerely and Love,
Wow. So many mixed emotions and thoughts this morning. If either candidate won the nation would still be divided.
Is the Lord allowing a time of pause with Trump, keeping His restraining finger on the inevitable coming chaos? Is this His response to Christians praying for Trump to win? Will this usher in a time of peace and prosperity? Seems the worse thing to do to this country is to usher in a time of peace and prosperity. History tells us that tends to keep people from seeking the Lord.
Putin appears happy for Trump's win, but there's still all that's going on in the middle east with Russia and NATO's build up. Not to mention that prophecy continues to unfold. And Obama still has time to continue with his destructive plans. Another false flag coming up? That wouldn't be surprising at all.
Is Trump a "Trojan Horse?" Is he who the elites wanted in power all along?
These are just a few of the thoughts racing through my mind at the moment. God only knows the truth.
“Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.”
We need to be grateful to God because of the opportunity He has given us... with that said, this opportunity comes with a huge responsibility. The church cannot stand back and hope for Trump or the government to fix things. We need to be proactive and be in the offensive preaching the good news of our Savior Jesus Christ at full force. I believe the Lord has granted us a tiny window, in which He will see who's one of His sheep and who's a goat. This is where we need to make things happen spreading His word. If we don't act accordingly, then we will be made responsible for not multiplying what He has given us... the repercussions are going to be enormous... the same way he opened this tiny window the same way He will close it
'...For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more." Luke 12:48(b)
Very good points
Hector, so true! The Lord gave us a foot in the door, we need to re-energize and do our part too.
Amen to that. We are given another chance and we cannot take it for granted.
With Trump in the office, we should have less restrictions on exercising our faith. Maybe God is giving us an opportunity to reach that 'last soul to be saved' sooner ?
God Bless America !
I think the rapture will soon be occurring and Trump as a baby Christian is also raptured. The globalists, false prophet will have an easy sell with those left behind saying that the aliens took the bad narrow minded bigots away to punish and or reeducate them.
As Al Michaels once said: "Do you believe in miracles? YES". I was stunned watching the results come in. At the same time however I poayed constantly that He is still in control and nothing happens without His sayso; and nothing that happens here will change His plans and will for us. As for Hillary, I don't know if she'll go to prison or not; and am not really concerned about it. I do know however that we need to pray for her that she will use this as a wake-up call and repent, because any prison time she does get will be a walk in the park or day at the beech compared to what's facing her in eternity. So that's my 2 cents worth.
Amen, Hector and all. We know how quickly things can change. Time is still so short. Praying for the Body of Christ to fully awaken and to do its job spreading the Good News. Praying for myself in this for sure.
Also... Amir Tsarfati (Behold Israel) had a great message today on his Youtube channel, confirming what we're sharing here.
Hey it's great to see Trumpn is president. For the term of the "previous" administration I've been very concerned at where the world could be headed, especially with all these Islamic ties, the gutting and weakening of your military, dumb immigration policies and Many other crazy ideas. But now the rot is finnished and hopefully accountability and righteousness being practiced within the confines of the constitution and under God (Jehovah) will be the new norm.
Just my personal thoughts on changes I'd like to see happen - getting rid of the Freedom From Religion Foundation out of American politics, society and the Armed Forces. The military built back up to its former world power status. American thinking and politics re-aligned to its former God given roll as world policeman, but done with righteousness, integrity and the defence of its allies and to the non profit of our enemies. Re-establish good relations with Russia, and finnally the absolute destruction of ISIS and its partners. And don't forget, to expose the rot that has prevailed in the White House and as a result the Middle East.
Guys I those are just a few of my thoughts and feelings, but at the end of the day I'm so happy that prayer has prevailed and a new President is the wings. As the leader of the previous aministration has said, "whatever we were yesterday we are no longer!" Guys that is for you now at this very important and exciting time in world history. May you and the world be no longer what we were yesterday.
Congrats guys!! May God once again bless America.
Im guessing ole vlad is pretty relieved:). I think the first order of business is fixing the election system so there can be little to no cheating. Then to russia to reassure putin changes are coming and we pull NATO /nukes off their border. Then nullify every obama executive ordee
Agreed....I also think it would be wise to develop some legislation to limit Executive powers. We need to make sure we never again allow a dictator to subvert our constitution through exec orders and such. Term limit reform is another area. Also, appointments to the various govt offices to prevent the massive collusion that has taken place over the last several years. All of the above is probably irrelevant because I really hope that we're gathered up soon.
We shouldn't "count our chickens before they're hatched." Time to be watching, alert and discerning.
Joining the crowd here in praying for the whole blue team.
Dave, absolutely! Praying the Lord protect the President Elect and family and team. Also praying the new administration to be asking for His guidance, leadership, and assistance as they start to put their team and game plan together.
Wow. What a ride.
Timothy 3:2-3, 8, NKJV. "A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach; not given to wine, not violent, not
greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous...Likewise deacons must be reverent, not double-
tongued, not given to much wine,not greedy for money,"
Proverbs 1:18-19, NKJV. "But they lie in wait for their own blood, they lurk secretly for their own lives. So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain; it takes away the life of its owners."
In addition to these, what is resonating with me these past few hours is Proverbs 16. Just taking it all in and letting it speak to what could be truly happening in the days and months ahead. All the while remembering to do Gods work while we wait, which some days can be very hard with all the distractions around us; and remembering not to get caught into any snares while we move about.
All these points of few are fascinating. Not to sound negative, but it seems after all that has happened that these previous 'players' would just pick up their bags and move on? Though it's only a feeling; I can't help but to feel like this period of transition will be a time of false security. I hope and pray we have the new direction of seeing what all of us and Trump can do. I just don't see the current Administration letting it go, they have too much at stake.
Wow so much today. FIRST id like to thank Jesus for hearing and answering our prayers.
Caver, love ya! Dave, I know right? Hector Lopez :) yep this is the beginning of the CHURCH actually pulling together for once and it can't stop. Our prayers were heard, God moved! The NWO is going to try and crush us. The only hope is prayer. And keep praying the evil out and God in.
Scott, Thank You! Seriously I can't wait to meet you. All of you. It will be soon.
Yes we managed to knock the hell out of Satan's sails last night, that's fir sure so enjoy the victory but we better be back on it tommorrow folks. Spending the day feeling praise emitting joy for Jesus all day hopefully
Sorry if this is a duplicate:
The pride, selfishness, greed and hate have been brewing for so long. Unless there was a complete turn-about; I just have a hard time believing they will humbly pass the torch. The news may come that we must protect ourselves to justify an attack. A tit for tat type of reasoning. Stripping us from the new hope that has come upon us with a new direction with regards to Trump. Taking what is still theirs-so they think-while going out with a bang. I pray I am very wrong. The amount of things uncovered these past few weeks don't fit the profile of a group of individuals will to truly 'concede' to anything but forcing their will on our lives.
I don't see God blessing corruption. I truly believe he has been bringing many things to pass as he makes no mistakes. This time the evils may be facing each other as they lie in wait. May we continue to operate in the true spirit of our Father. Honoring the King of Kings, not the king who thinks he may pop up because he has work to do now. May we stand strong in the face of adversity and continue to witness unlike any type of witnessing we have done before. Bring many to repentance and salvation. Praise be to God for loving us so, that he is our one and only GREAT REDEEMER!!
God Bless All,
On a side note-Something I thought of today was what would upset the people more? The current status quo in king status, removing our personal freedoms and right to a new leader? Or those who are trying to do this very thing right now because of this new outcome? Either way, it seem calm is far off IMHO.
GG, absolutely agree. The left spent over 75 years to set BO's power grab up....this was it. They came out of the closet and Trump's victory is going to set their movement back untold decades and expose many of them to prison or worse. I don't think its going quietly or easily without at least one last major push.
It could be the economy....or war....or both or something else, but I think the next 2 months may be the most dangerous we've ever faced.
Pray without ceasing.
Yea, I agree with all of that above...I'm amazed at the insight on this board and am honored to have these associations. Reunion coming; I'll be looking forward to it :)
I have been listening to Dr. Tony Evans of the Urban Alternative a bit over the past few days. I get many different sources recommended through Moody Radio. He is doing some on "When Government Replaces God" "Turning a Nation to God"
Here is a link if anyone is interested. I like how he breaks down the scripture of the kings. http://tonyevans.org/category/tony-evans-sermons/
or other sources at:
Perhaps the Lord is giving this nation and the world a brief return to normalcy [or the appearance thereof] before the Rapture. Matthew 24:42-51. It may be that it is the Rapture that guts this nation rather than some globalist elite's scheme of which there are a-plenty and will be free to trigger once we are gone. If we thought the election required us to enter our prayer "War Room" a lot, now there's even more work for His people who pray. I speak of prayer not only to God, but of the sort that Jesus talked about in Matthew 17:20 and Mark 11:23 of "speaking to the mountain about your God instead of telling God about your mountain." In this way the Holy Spirit that is in every real believer can indeed "restrain until He [along with the Ekklesia] is take out of the way." 2 Thessalonians 2:7. The Greek for "restrain" here is no "Casper milk toast" or emaciated one. After all, as the Apostle Paul made clear in 1 Corinthians 4:20, "For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power." And God does back His Word with His Actions: "And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with . . . , and confirming the word with signs following. Amen." Mark 16:20 KJB. In the King James, its translators were sincere enough to italicize any words that they added to the original Hebrew or Greek; the ellipses I put here are for the word "them" that they added. Reading Mark 16:20 with that italicized word makes it sound like the Lord is a respecter of persons (which we know He is not), but reading this Mark passage without the "them" added by the King James translators makes it sound like the emphasis is on His Word and the integrity of His Word which He certainly backs. Also, when it comes to speaking His Word, we often limit ourselves to just addressing people -- but the Word says to speak it to EVERY creature. Mark 16:15. As an example we see Jesus (and the Disciples) speaking not only to people -- but to storms, lack of food, sickness, blindness, incurable diseases & infirmities, the dead, demons, the devil, and any situation ["mountain"] there was an inkling of an invisible evil behind it. His Word is so comprehensive and powerful that it does not return to Him void. Isaiah 55:10-11. Hillary and her cohorts certainly called out to the witchcraft and satanic powers to give her the election -- and did it in our face openly, almost like the kingdom of darkness wanted to make a show of its strength -- but instead, like the priests of Baal on Carmel [1 Kings 18] before that man who is like us in his infirmities [James 5:16-18] the dark powers were cut off and could not back those priests. God's people in this nation and throughout the world were clearly praying to God and also "speaking to the mountains about our God", and the Lord answered with the election of Donald Trump. This man and his administration is certainly going to need our prayers, so let’s not rest on our laurels going forward. After all, we are just obeying His word, to "restrain until [we] are taking out of the way."
