SO WE TRUST GOD WITH EVERYTHING BUT DONALD TRUMP’S HEART? by DAVE DAUBENMIRE via BarbWire

This election cycle is enough to drive a person crazy. I don’t know if I have ever in my lifetime seen so much confusion about what is happening in America. It is the judgment of God on America.

We are told in 2 Thessalonians that God “would send a strong delusion that they would believe a lie.” Lies rule the day in this nation and sadly, it is God’s people who seem most deceived and confused by what is going on.

I have lost some friends over the past few months because I have come out in support of Donald Trump. These are good people who are angry with me. Warriors, really. Front line activists whom I have, and would, stand shoulder to shoulder with in the defense of the unborn. These are not some Joel Osteen followers. These are committed men and women of God that I have the utmost respect for.

But they are #nevertrumpers. I am not mad at them because they won’t vote for him. I respect their decisions and I respect their conscience. Far be it from me to judge someone’s Christianity based on a vote in a Presidential election. I trust that they are following their conscience. What grieves me is they don’t trust that I am following mine.

“How can you vote for a strip club owner? How can you cast a vote for a serial adulterer? Trump doesn’t want to protect ALL babies. You are a sellout! You have betrayed all of us in the Pro-life movement.”

And those are some of the nicer things they have said…my Christian brothers. It grieves my heart.

I was on the phone with one of them the other day and we had a very cordial discussion. He said he still loves me as a brother…and I believe he does…but he just cannot trust me anymore after being a cheerleader for such a wicked man. He was a strong Ted Cruz supporter in the primaries.

“Let me ask you a few questions,” I said to him over the phone. “When you were supporting Cruz did you agree with all of his positions?”

“Most of them,” he answered. “I believe he was an honest man.”

“Ok. I just pulled out Ted’s position paper from the primaries and he listed the following things as important positions.”

Repeal and replace Obama Care.
The 2nd amendment is absolute and no to gun control legislation.
If elected he will nominate pro-life justices to the Supreme Court.
If elected he will overturn all of Obama’s illegal executive orders.
If elected he would defund Planned Parenthood.
He would cut personal income and corporate taxes.
He would return educational control to the local school districts.
He would block Common Core.
He would fight for energy Independence.
He would bar refugees from Terrorist nations.
“Do you still support all of those position’s Mike?” I asked.

“Of course I do. Cruz was our best chance to restore Christian values to this nation. I supported him 100%.”

“Are there any of his positions listed above that you could not support, Mike?”

“No. Those would be a good first step in turning this nation around.”

“Well Mike, I hate to burst your bubble but those 10 things listed above are positions that I found on Donald Trump’s website. It seems to me that he and Ted Cruz agree on much of what is needed to rescue this nation. Why can’t you support him?”

“Because I don’t trust him. I don’t think that he actually believes most of those things because he used to be a liberal Democrat. He gave millions to the Democrats.”

“How do you know that if Cruz was elected he would do what he said he would do?”

“Because I trust him. He is a man of integrity. Trump has been all over the place and I don’t trust him.”

“Why not support Trump and hold his feet to the fire. Let’s make sure he does what he and Cruz says needs to be done. Maybe he can appoint pro-life judges and end the abortion holocaust.”

“I can’t vote for him. He is a serial adulterer. He miss-treats women. He said he has never felt the need to ask God for forgiveness.”

“But what if he keeps his word? What if he keeps his word and fights for everything he and …

  1. I believe America is being judged to. Those that won’t trust God are being turned over to their reprobate minds. There are so many “doctrines” being tossed to and fro..That being said I AM SO THANKFUL THE LORD LIFTED THE VEIL FROM MY EYES! What a blessing from such a gracious God that just wants us to trust Him-worship Him~ obey Him~ and love Him back as much as He has loved us through Jesus…

    1. Maybe the US will be judged. Certainly we’ve sinned as a nation. But, we also have the right and the obligation to do what we can here and now. If Hillary gets in, that’s the end of religious freedom. To allow her to get in, is to not love our neighbor as ourselves. While we can still fight, we must still fight.

        1. Sorry. I did misunderstand. I tell my children to trust God no matter what happens. I pray that God doesn’t allow Hillary in but, if He does, we will still trust Him. I hope, and I pray, that God isn’t done with the US. God bless you. ~ Anna

      1. If He is done with the U.S. well, we can’t say it’s not deserved. We must remain faithful to Him and obey Him, Right? ❤ We that believe and trust Him have nothing to fear. Our fear is behind us.

        1. I couldn’t agree more. If He chooses to glorify Himself by punishing the US, it will be just as well with the true believer as if He showered the blessing of revival on her. No one can touch our soul so even if we perish, we step right into His presence. My prayer is that He will turn this nation to Himself but I also pray that His will, not mine, is done. Soli Deo gloria!

      1. Yep! We will let the Lord have His vengeance at the right time…HIS time. Faith ❤
        Romans 12:19
        "Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, says the Lord."
