Scripture tells us the Anti-Christ is “the lawless one.”
“And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.” (2 Thessalonians 2:8).
Scripture tells us the Anti-Christ “will be the great boaster; boasting about ‘his greatness.'”
“Then I continued to watch because of the boastful words the horn was speaking.” (Daniel 7:8).
“And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart,” (Daniel 8:25).
Scripture tells us the Anti-Christ is the “arrogant one.”
“And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies;” (Revelation 13:5).
You will recall that Trump has used the Lord’s name in vain with impunity, right?
Scripture tells us the Anti-Christ is a “pathological liar.”
“When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” (John 8:44).
“It set itself up to be as great as the commander of the army of the Lord; it took away the daily sacrifice from the Lord, and his sanctuary was thrown down. 12 Because of rebellion, the Lord’s people[a] and the daily sacrifice were given over to it. It prospered in everything it did, and the truth was thrown to the ground.” (Daniel: 11-12).
Scripture tells us the Anti-Christ is a “builder of towers.”
“Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.” (Genesis 11:4).
Please tell me you didn’t see this one coming, with his towers across the globe carrying his name, eh?
Again, I am not the one making the claim that Trump was “sent by God,” or “anointed by Him.” You however are. And the question I have for each of you is simple: What behavior does Trump engage in that reminds you of Christ?
Is it his pride he demonstrates whenever speaking? Or, is it his willingness to admit his wrongs and move on? Or, perhaps it is the “compassion” he shows children from a refugee’s family after he locks them away separating him from their family? Is that it? Or maybe it is his overwhelming sense of responsibility for the 83,000 lives lost thus far due to his inaction to the pandemic? Is that it? I mean as reported he has dedicated about three percent of his press briefings on acknowledging lives lost.
Or, is it his sense of “inclusion” as he invokes China as the blame for the virus, or blames Muslims, or Mexicans or whatever minority group he targets? Or perchance was it when he mocked the disabled reporter? Maybe THAT was your coming to Jesus moment, eh?
Oh, I know: It is his prolific record of lies told while in office. THAT MUST BE IT!
Oh, wait: I know! I honestly KNOW now. The precise moment you people who make such an utterly false claim was when Donald J. Trump told Frank Luntz, the Republican strategist, his answer to the following question: Have you ever asked God for forgiveness for ANYTHING you have ever done?
Trump’s response must have sealed the deal for you when he said, “You know, I haven’t! And I really do not see a need for me to do that with God. I really do not believe I have done anything wrong.” I guess church leaders across the globe can now tell those seeking Christ that WITHOUT repentance there actually CAN be forgiveness of sins.
THAT is why you all said you were not electing an altar boy. Got it. But get this: So did every single person not of faith get it too. And my guess is we will never see those people ever darken the doors of any faith movement because you LOWERED your moral standard in order to get YOUR political ideologically pure candidate in office. And after all: you would have rather died than vote for Hillary, isn’t that right?
And here we all are! Well played! Well played.
Go on, and show us your work. I did!
I humbly ask that you not so much embrace our faith, as much as look at the cognitive dissonance those of us in the faith struggle with. Not me. But others who hedged their bets on Trump – despite his gross immorality and unwillingness to seek forgiveness – a cornerstone in our faith – as a metric for those within the faith.
Again: While I believe certain attributes of the bible, it appears the majority, if not all, do not care. Since the evangelical voters are his largest voting bloc [should he lose their support] he loses the upcoming election. It really is that simple.
Even if you don’t believe the Bible inspired by God, you must admit there are many words of wisdom for life. THIS IS WHY I ASK YOU TO SHARE LIBERALLY! The only way it gets into news feeds is through this manner. Thanks in advance.
