There Is A Greater Foundation

A young man recently told me that he plans to vote for HiLIARy Clinton.  During a previous conversation weeks ago, I briefly mentioned several of the scandals that she has been a part of  (Benghazi, emails, Clinton foundation corruption etc.) and I told him point blank that she belongs in jail!  I didn’t see the need to repeat my concerns about her a second time.  I instinctively knew that they would fall on deaf ears.

Knowing that I’m a conservative Republican, he asked me who I was going to vote for.  I said, “I just can’t vote for Trump.”  He said, “So, you’re abstaining from voting then?”  I replied, “When it comes to voting for president this year?  Most likely, yes.”

I explained to him that living in ultra liberal California (he likes to call himself “progressive”) means that my vote for any Republican candidate (since Reagan, who I think was the last Republican presidential candidate to win in the state of California) won’t count for the final outcome in this state anyway, so why cast a vote for someone in whom I have doubts about for the highest office in the land?

I read a very good and interesting article on another blog this morning. The blog is named “We The People of the United States”(In Support and Defense of the Constitution for the United States of America) and the essay is entitled What Is True Social Justice?

The author is a Trump supporter. “Miri” makes the point that the GOP Illuminati is frightened by Trump. I think I could agree with that. Many bloggers have written about the not-so-secret “one party system” disguised as Democrats vs. RINOS in Congress. The fact that the RINO leadership in both the House and the Senate have done NOTHING to stop 0bammy’s destructive policies is proof enough for me. In fact, there are rumors that there are GOP elitists (elitists…in their own corrupted minds, that is) who would rather vote for HiLIARy than Trump. As I have written before, Trump would be light-years better than HiLIARy (and 82% of people in a new poll taken in Virginia think she should be prosecuted), but I still think that Trump’s “you’re fired” attitude towards others is troubling.  What’s more disturbing is perhaps it would cause him to never take proper advice from anyone in his future presidential cabinet. We already have that with 0bummer, who has consistently ignored what military officers and advisors have been telling him regarding fighting ISIS for 7 1/2 years!

Not to mention the continued harassment of 0bummer admin’s plan for ‘summer of chaos’ and martial law (revealed through Black Live Matter hacked messages).

In the first link above (WTPOTUS), we read the FACT that 0bummer’s presidency in the White House has been a fascist’s dream!

Excerpt:

According to one definition, fascism

stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition …

Kagan, who was once a Republican and who is married to Victoria Nuland, must not have been paying attention for the last 7 1/2 years during which Barack Hussein Obama II has placed the U.S. well down the path towards fascism.

We currently have a president who refuses to enforce immigration laws, and other laws as well; who thumbs his nose at Congress, the courts, and the Constitution; whose wife dictates what school children must and must not eat; who uses the power of his office to menace the media; who, as a candidate, formed a “truth squad” that used prosecutors and sheriffs to police what people said about him; who threatens banks and businesses to make them to bend to his will; whose “justice department” warns states that they’d better not try to keep people from using a bathroom (or dormitory, or gym locker room, or shower room) that doesn’t conform with their birth sex, and which threatens citizens that they’d better not say anything on social media that criticizes Islam … Well, you’ve got the picture.

The author goes on and writes:

I do completely agree with Brookings that

distribution based on social justice is the main problem of the world today.

Because through this concept of social justice, communists, socialists, fascists, liberals, and progressives have incrementally instituted our “present system” that features producers from whom wealth is taken and recipients to whom other people’s wealth is given.

There are as many definitions of social justice as there are fish in the sea, but the definition doesn’t really matter. What matters is how progressives use that phrase as code words for Marxist redistribution of wealth.

When Trump met with many evangelical leaders a while back, there was some speculation that Trump may now be “a baby Christian.” Well, I read Marsha West’s recent column over at Renew America (see the links within for explanations of what she is claiming) entitled, “James Dobson reveals who he believes led Donald Trump to Christ,” and I wasn’t really comforted by what I read there.

James Dobson starts off by writing:

Only the Lord knows the condition of a person’s heart. I can only tell you what I’ve heard. First, Trump appears to be tender to things of the Spirit. I also hear that Paula White has known Trump for years and that she personally led him to Christ. Do I know that for sure? No.

So…who is Paula White?

It is no secret that Paula White is a WoF prosperity preacher. Sad to say that any person that rejects the true Gospel of Christ and embraces WoF’s false health & wealth gospel, as she does, is not a regenerate (born again) Christian. In fact, those who have bought into WoF beliefs are caught up in a cult. WoF is not historic orthodox Christianity – not even close! Its teaching on faith is right out of the New Age playbook:

      Faith is a tangible

force

      . This

force

      is released through the spoken word, thus name-it-and-claim-it. When we speak words of faith,

power

      is discharged that will accomplish our desires. Through faith we can have health, wealth, success – anything we want!

 

Moreover…

Alleged laws of the universe can be manipulated independent of God. Does this mean God is subject to the laws He created? According to word-faith theology, yes. (Source)

The prosperity “gospel.”

*Sigh*….

Sounds like something that Trump would embrace because he lives in prosperity and “The Art of the Deal” is his gospel! I’m not saying that there is anything wrong with this businessman’s success, but such success is only temporal. “You can’t take it with you” as we all know, and one day he will stand before Jesus Christ either at the Great White Throne Judgment (if not saved)

 

 

or the Judgment Seat of Christ (if he is saved and redeemed by the true Gospel of Christ).

The book of Jude warns us of the “prosperity gospel” heresy and all kinds of false “prophets” who would skew individuals away from the true gospel of Jesus Christ!

Ms. West concludes her essay:

And if it’s true that it was Paula White, as Dr. Dobson seems to think, then we can surmise from what we know about this woman, that Donald Trump did not hear the true Gospel of Christ from her. Sadly, what he heard instead was the false prosperity gospel that saves no one.

I’ll close with a warning from the Apostle Paul:

      But the Spirit saith expressly, that in later times some shall fall away from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils, through the hypocrisy of men that speak lies, branded in their own conscience as with a hot iron…

1 Tim. 4:1,2

We can hold out hope that one day Trump will be genuinely born again in Christ. Until then, if he is elected this November, we can hope that God will use this secular man (in a similar manner as He used Cyrus in the Bible) to renew and rebuild our currently beleaguered Judeo-Christian nation.

 

A little history about King Cyrus.

2Ch 36:22

Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and also put it in writing, saying,

Ch 36:23

Thus says Cyrus king of Persia: All the kingdoms of the earth the LORD God of heaven has given me. And He has commanded me to build Him a house at Jerusalem which is in Judah. Who is among you of all His people? May the LORD his God be with him, and let him go up!

Cyrus made this proclamation 48 years after the temple was destroyed (2 Chronicles 36:18,19), the year after he conquered Babylon. The book of Ezra tells the story of this proclamation and the return of the exiles to Judah.

Second Chronicles focuses on the rise and fall of the worship of God as symbolized by the Jerusalem temple. David planned the temple, Solomon built it and then put on the greatest dedication service the world had ever seen. Worship in the temple was superbly organized.

But several evil kings defiled the temple and degraded worship so that the people revered idols more highly than God. (Sound A LOT like today…doesn’t it?) Finally, King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon destroyed the temple (36:19). The kings were gone, the temple was destroyed, and the people were removed. The nation was stripped to its very foundation. But fortunately there was a greater foundation – God himself. When everything in life seems stripped away from us, we too still have God- his Word, his presence, and his promises.

Hat tips to all links.

    I really enjoyed this post. It’s encouraging to find a bit of like-mindedness. How I vote in my state isn’t terribly important either. That’s a good thing, it relieves some pressure.

    Thanks so much! I always enjoy your posts! Been busy so need to head over and read the latest ones.

    When Arnold S. ran for governor here, I could not in good conscience vote for him. Never regretted that decision – he was awful! Tom McClintock is a conservative Republican that I voted for. He would have been a great governor! But the majority of “fruits and nuts” in this state voted for the “celebrity.” Ugh…

    Heard on the Rush Limbaugh show that the evil and sickening leftist financier, George Soros, has given over 12 MILLION dollars to the “Black Lives Matter” movement! So many of the “protesters” are being paid to “protest!”

    As mentioned in the original post here, the “summer of chaos” is sure to be paid for by Sorosatan! Disgusting…to say the least!

    In the following transcript, Rush makes the case that 0bama praised the BLM movement at the White House and how the left politicizes violence to advance their agenda against conservatives, republicans, guns, and even Donald Trump!

    Read the following excerpt and see how the lies have been spewed by leftist lunatics:

    I also had some snarky e-mails that I checked during the break: “You just make it up. Obama never praised Black Lives Matter at the White House.” Well, I have a Breitbart story here, this is from February 21st, 2016. “Obama Thanks Black Lives Matter Leaders for Their ‘Outstanding Work.” It was this year.

    “Flanked by liberal legislators, and Black Lives Matter founders Brittany Packnett and DeRay Mckesson, President Obama told White House meeting of young militant leftists that they ‘are much better organizers’ than he was at their age, and that he is ‘confident that they are going to take America to new heights.'”

    This is just six months ago. Six months ago. Do you remember when Black Lives Matter came into existence? Tell me when? Ferguson. That’s exactly right. Black Lives Matter never existed, nobody’s ever heard of it until Ferguson, Missouri and Michael Brown and hands up, don’t shoot, which didn’t happen. Hands up, don’t shoot never happened.

    There’s video of this massacre in Texas last night with protesters dancing and singing outside the convenience store, saying hands up, don’t shoot. Now, who’s responsible for perpetuating that lie? It literally did not happen, folks. Michael Brown never put his hands up. He never turned his back on the cop. He was not shot in the back. He never said, “My hands are up, don’t shoot.” None of that. None of it happened. Not a single syllable of that happened. It was, in fact, just the opposite.

    The guy ripped off a convenience store, engaged in a little violence against the owner or the clerk at the store, and then threatened the cop who was arresting him for walking in the street, or trying to get him to move back to the sidewalk. The gentle giant, he was just walking down the street on a Saturday afternoon in August, thinking excitedly about his upcoming freshman year in college. Three months later a couple of St. Louis Rams football players, during player introductions, run out of the tunnel with their hands up and waving, reenacting hands up, don’t shoot, which did not happen.

    Now, I’m asking, who perpetuates this lie? I’ll give you a hint. It isn’t the Tea Party. It’s not the Republican Party. It’s not the conservative population in this country. It arguably could be said it’s the civil rights coalitions, the Reverend Jacksons and Al Sharptons. It could be said it’s the Democrat Party, and by all means it’s the media. Without any shred of doubt it’s the media which has perpetuated the hoax. Just like Duke lacrosse rape hoax, so was hands up, don’t shoot a total hoax. And out of that hoax was born Black Lives Matter, much the same as after the Tea Party organically materialized, the Democrats went out and created Occupy Wall Street.

    It was funded. It was organized and manmade. It was not organic. Occupy Wall Street did not spring up out of the ether. It was created by the Democrat Party to counter the Tea Party, which they were scared to death of. They had to make it look like there was a similar or even larger movement that was bigger that disagreed. And that’s what Occupy Wall Street was and Black Lives Matter. I don’t know who the real organizers were and I don’t know who dreamed them up. But they appear right in the middle of the Michael Brown hoax. And what does Black Lives Matter do?

    Black Lives Matter stormed, in one instance, the stage where crazy Bernie was conducting a political rally. Crazy Bernie, why did they storm the stage? Because crazy Bernie made the statement that all lives matter. Uh-uh-uh. And they stormed the stage and they took the microphone away from him. He had committed a gigantic liberal sin, because all lives don’t matter. That is the point of Black Lives Matter. Blue lives don’t matter. All lives don’t matter. Black lives matter. And if you don’t heel to that, they’re going to storm the stage.

    BLM is all a big fat lying show! These paid pawns are being used to push an agenda that the leftist lunatics want – to disarm and take away the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens!

    Don’t believe the hype…people!!

    “but I still think that Trump’s “you’re fired” attitude towards others is troubling. What’s more disturbing is perhaps it would cause him to never take proper advice from anyone in his future presidential cabinet. ”

    I think that image of Trump was cultivated for the purposes of his television show. It was promoted for that, and they got people to watch the show just to watch Trump fire people. It was a marketable meme. He marketed himself that way.
    And there is evidence that he has intentionally been more brash and provocative during the primary season than he plans to be in the general election cycle.

    But Trump has shown himself in business to be a very intelligent person who gathers smart people around himself and makes decisions with the benefit of the best advice he can get. I have watched interviews of him from the 1980s when he was a young man; he was calm, well spoken, and had a clear head on his shoulders.

    I understand the reservations many have about Donald Trump. But I am confident that he will be a much better President than Clinton and has a better chance of beating her than anyone else in the field. His poll numbers continue to improve against her; he is presently beating her in the polls. He gained more votes than any Republican in primary history, and he is drawing far more of the black vote and Latino vote than anyone thought possible; far far more than Romney did, or McCain did for example.

    Some of the things presently being said about Trump were said about Reagan when he ran in the primary in 1980. But Ronnie turned out to be a much better President than most people apparently believed he would become, based on their comments and criticisms of him during the primary. I am not claiming that Trump will be another Reagan, or that his personal faith is similar to Reagan’s personal faith. But I do think that a great deal of money has been spent by entrenched interests on both sides of the aisle to create hatred of Trump and to paint him in unflattering fashion. And I will not be surprised if he becomes a much better President than many people now believe he will be.

      Hi Topcat1957,

      Welcome to Talk Wisdom and thanks so much for you great comment.

      This is certainly good to know:

      But Trump has shown himself in business to be a very intelligent person who gathers smart people around himself and makes decisions with the benefit of the best advice he can get. I have watched interviews of him from the 1980s when he was a young man; he was calm, well spoken, and had a clear head on his shoulders.

      The fact that his family members love him and he chooses not to drink, smoke, or take drugs is certainly a plus!

      As I wrote in the original post, Trump (despite his flaws) would be light-years better than HiLIARy! I keep praying that if Donald wins, he will expose all of the corruption in D.C. and those complicit in their attempts at destroying our Constitutional Republic. There are enemies against We The People on both sides of the aisle in Congress, but the worst of the worst are the Demoncrats! Their “platform” is godless (literally!) and pushes for immoral, totalitarian/commie/pro-Islam policies. They don’t even hide the fact that they are intent on taking our rights away and destroying our nation.

      I sincerely hope that you are right about Trump. Our nation has suffered tremendously under 0bummer for almost 8 looong years! I hope and pray that God will hear our cries to renew and heal our nation.
