Election 2020 — Saint vs Demon

Yes, in every sense of the biblical use of the word, President Donald J. Trump is a saint.

The only problem you might have with this statement is your lack of understanding of what a saint is (or for some of you, you reject God and thus you reject those who do his work).

The truth is that we are all called by God to be saints and only a few listen and abide by His will.

Sainthood is not something which is a mere designation by a particular church as it is God who recognizes saints. The illusion many people have of what a saint is (influenced and distorted by what they think they know of the Catholic Church) is not even based on that Church’s criteria — as throughout history its saints prior to conversion included men and women of a multitude of sins from prostitution, whoremongering, hedonism, etc. Sainthood is not for perfect human beings (as there are none). Sainthood is not some lofty other-worldly detachment from life in the here and now. Sainthood doesn’t apply only to the outwardly religious, on the contrary, the saints among us (more often than not) will not exhibit religiosity as in adherence to rituals, creeds, etc.

Sainthood is the intended purpose by our redemptive God of every individual who is a believer in Jesus Christ. Sainthood is the remarkable exuding of extraordinary power by an ordinary man. Sainthood is achieved by fully embracing life now- this very day and its circumstances — to make it better. Sainthood refers to those who evince righteousness due to their seeking to do what is right at all times, for that is what a true Christian strives to do. In doing so, we build up the body of Christ (the true Church) and affect the world around us by the choices we make.

Effective Saints Are Ready For Battle

President Trump exemplifies what a saint is. He has become (whether he is fully aware of it or not) a spiritual advocate for everything which is good and can become good once again in America. He exemplifies what a believer is supposed to be — unique, creative, and bold. We are God’s creation intended to create good.

He is an example for all with eyes to see of a man who does good and endeavors to choose what is right. The list of good achievements he has accomplished for the United States (and the world) is long.

We are all on an earthly journey and while here it is our mission to be Christ-like and in doing so be the saints God would have us be — exemplifying greatness that only an individual can accomplish when his heart is set rightly. This is what a saint is — a man set apart from his peers — one who aspires to create — an instrument of God doing good works. This is what we see in President Trump, a man endeavoring to do what is loving for all Americans, a man with courage to do not what is politically correct but rather to do what is correct.

Saints, all true Christian believers whose lives evince dedication to doing what is lovingly right, share these characteristics: Justice, non-conformity, and strength. Saints vary in spiritual maturity, though according to the Bible all who trust in Jesus Christ are considered saints by God, and simultaneously they are called to be saints — that is to endeavor to evince that which God knows they are capable of achieving through him. This sets us apart from other people. The most effective saints are those who are ready for battle.

Donald Trump was well-equipped for his position and the unique ministry he has now been given (having spent decades acquiring and developing the creative talents and thought processes necessary to set himself apart from all the other politicians he faced when he sought the Republican nomination and then to set himself apart from the wicked woman who challenged him for the office of the presidency). He continues to be set apart even from those around him now. He is not like them…he is not one of the swamp creatures which comprise most of his political party and certainly the opposing political party — he is set apart…he is a saint — a man who wants his actions to match his words — a man of integrity and boldness — a man of God. And, that, my readers, is why he is hated by so many. The evil ones (and there are many) recognize he is not one of them. He seeks not their approval, he seeks not what they seek — power, money, and anti-God agendas — he seeks the noble and honorable goal of doing what is best for Americans and when that requires undoing the evils they have done — he does it. He, unlike most in political power, is there for the right purpose. For this, he is persecuted just as Jesus told us one such as Trump would be: “ If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you,” (John 15:20, King James Version). One of the surest signs of being a saint is being constantly subjected to vitriolic accusatory attacks by vile men. The self-righteous always attack the genuine righteous.

Trump’s strong sense of righteous indignation is biblical. His rejection of political correctness is biblical.

It is imperative that a good man expresses his revulsion at evil and when acquired the power to do so to vanquish it and for this, he is understandably hated by the wicked. “An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked,” (Proverbs 29:27, KJV).

Trump’s evincement of strength, energy, and determination is biblical and God-given. His decision to serve this nation has placed an immense burden of responsibility on him, and all because he was willing to be used. His remarkable degree of good works reveals he who sent him and who guides him. Anointed by God, he is a man set apart for the unique purpose of giving the United States what I believe is its last opportunity for redemption after decades of committing much evil due to rejecting God in its government and society.

Trump is an example for every saint of what our heart must proclaim and emulate daily: “Use me. I want to do what is right.” That sets him apart from the majority in Washington DC and most politicians nationwide. His entire life has been one of creative building expressed in a multitude of projects which blessed himself and his family as well as many he would never even know. An entrepreneur does that. This built the character we see today, one which doesn’t care what other people think, but instead forges ahead with his goals. This already remarkable man listened to the call of God (whether he identified it or not, that still, small voice of the Holy Spirit speaks to all of us whose heart is right). Unlike his challengers, he didn’t seek it for fame/glory/wealth/power (he had everything a man could want already) — he had a worthy goal, a goal aligned with God’s, and had developed the ability and talent to save America from its downfall and otherwise inevitable deserved destruction.

To be set apart from most around you is characteristic of a saint. It should define you if you are a believer. We are not called to “get along” with everyone, nor to be tolerant, nor to place the feelings of others above what our heart tells us is right or wrong. We are called to do what is right.

Those Who Reject God Oppose Trump


 
Those who oppose President Trump reveal they oppose God — for everything President Trump has done and plans to do for America — is entirely consistent with God’s word, teachings, and prophecy. And, yet, crafty manipulators, the deceivers (who follow the father of all lies — Satan), twist Scripture to attack him. They scoff at and are angered by Christians who support him, they are the one’s who use accusatory words expressing the sentiment “He is no saint,” when the truth is they exemplify Matthew 7:5 in which the hypocrite is described, the one always ready to accuse the one with a speck in his eye when they have a beam (of darkness) in their own. All saints are sinners, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God,” (Romans 3:23, KJV). The difference between us and those mired in darkness, we have chosen again and they remain in their spiritual darkness.

In what he has done for America, Israel, and the world, President Trump has evinced a courageous righteousness no one in the presidential office has ever done. In addition, his words themselves have resulted in Americans again turning to God in a way they had not done in public life for decades. For the first time in my lifetime, I see people developing strength in their witness, in their proclamation that God’s principles must be the measure of what our children are taught, what laws are made, and what we as a society should praise and what should be rejected. It is amazing to see what the Holy Spirit can accomplish through a man whose heart is willing.

Satan’s Work Is Threatened By Trump

 

Satan’s decade’s long stronghold of the United States is now threatened as never before. President Trump’s appearance on the world stage has been the most disturbing occurrence they could experience because he boldly challenges everything they stand for. He stands for righteousness, life, law and order, justice, self-defense, prosperity, personal responsibility, beautiful Judaeo-Christian traditions and belief, and compassion. These characteristics are the antithesis of those who oppose him, despite their protestations of standing for noble traits their actions show they stand for nothing but death — death to everything good and upon which our nation was founded.

Some Democrats proclaim their belief in God/prayer/faith, when their political platform proves they are like the Scribes and Pharisees Jesus described in Matthew 23 (where he repeatedly described their outward words as contrasted with their wicked behavior) with concluding remarks beginning in Verse 33, “Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?” Likewise, those who are truly Christian do not condemn another who professes Christianity for taking their faith seriously. Having anti-God stances on every issue, they, “…are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works,” (2 Corinthians 11:13–15, KJV). In other words, those who claim to be of God while doing Satan’s work will reap the consequences.

Those who advocate for evil demonic policies such as the murder of babies, Communism (the antithesis of all we are taught for civil order and personal responsibility in the Bible), and stand with the thugs and perverts in society, haven’t a leg to stand on in their condemnation of President Trump. We are told we can discern who is a true Christian versus those who are not with the simple test: “ Ye shall know them by their fruits,” (Matthew 7:16, KJV) not by what they say, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity,” (Matthew 7:21–23, KJV).

Examining the life of Jesus Christ we find in him our perfect example: as the man he became on earth, being of flesh and blood like us, he did not behave at all like those around him who were regarded as holy. Instead, he in true holiness, boldly identified the evil-doers, the hypocrites, sometimes with scathing condemnation (without this, those doing evil would have no reason or chance to reconsider their behavior). Do not confuse his words or that of his apostles such as Paul advising us how to relate to fellow believers who transgress against us with how we are to relate to the followers of Satan, neither take the instruction to assist others as a call for the government to do that charity which you as an individual or as a church are to do. The audience of such instructions in the Bible is often ignored by those who seek to confuse Christians into falsely equating forgiveness and compassion with a tolerance of sin and Marxism. Returning not evil for evil is vastly different from ignoring or embracing it. And among Christian brethren, the prerequisite to forgiveness is repentance (“If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him,” (Luke 17:3–4 KJV). Mass demonic deception has insidiously made its way into many pulpits so much so many Christians are deluded, uninformed, and thereby ineffectual and worse yet working in diametric opposition to God’s will. Despite their pastors seeking popularity over truth, each individual will be held accountable.

Division is inevitable

Jesus clearly stated he came to divide not bring unity, “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword,” (Matthew 10:34, KJV), “for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?” (2 Corinthians 6:14, KJV).

President Trump’s opponent is not the feeble human being bearing the Democrat moniker; President Trump and every American who loves this nation and loves God is combating human beings controlled by Satanic forces, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places,” and are told “Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand,”(Ephesians 6:12–13, KJV).

Human demons (those possessed or influenced predominately by or having become a demon) control the Democrat party. Anyone affiliating with the agenda and candidates of this evil enterprise aids and abets Satan’s goal of the total destruction of America. The battleground is our nation, and its soul like that of an individual will receive consequences for the choices its people make.

The righteous will see the wicked fall

Our nation is suffering right now because of its acceptance and glorification of sin in its society and its choice of representatives, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn…If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants are wicked”…but remember, “When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall.” (Proverbs 29: 2, 12, 16).

President Trump has stood and worked for that which is life-enhancing; his adversaries stand and work for all which brings death and decay.

What we are witnessing in our nation is a spiritual battle. Between good and evil, light and darkness, between a saint and a demon.

  1. Derrell, Thank you for your wonderful thoughtful, and informative comment. Truth! I appreciated your sharing of this understanding given you. Very well stated. – Christine Smith

  2. Jesus Said; “I AM, the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE” (four proclamations of Who and What He IS) “no man comes to the Father but by Me.” You must approach the Father with an acceptance of all four of these definers that Jesus gave of Himself. It is the Holy Spirit that reveals these things to you and the Spirit of the Anointing that makes them real in your life even if your natural mind does not grasp or understand them.

    Jesus gave just two Commandments and said all others would be fulfilled in keeping these two: Love your God with all of your heart mind and soul and love your neighbor as yourself.

    John wrote in Revelation 12 that those who dwell in heaven (the spiritual) will rejoice when they see all of these things happening but the devil will go “down” to make war on the earth (physical) and sea (emotional). Woe to those who focus on those regions of their being and of this world. Is it not true today?

    Jesus told his disciples if you love Me you will do as I tell you to do. It is because you love Him, not because you want to earn your way into Heaven. You cannot. You can only approach the Father (THE I AM that I AM) thru THE I AM, the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE. That is the Sainthood the Bible speaks of.

    When I was a child I did not understand how the beast would make war on God. God! A Spiritual Being. But now I see. They seek to destroy the Way. They seek to destroy the Truth. They Seek to destroy Life. And therefore they think they can destroy the I AM.

    At Babel men said, come let us collectively make bricks, let us burn them with fire, let us build a city, a monument to ourselves that God Himself cannot destroy. In the 1840s Karl Marx called for the workers of the world to work together and form a society that had no God nor any of the good things of God. It does not escape me that Communism IS the first man-government nor that it continues to attempt to collect man against his Maker.

    The Left now openly declares and acts against the Saints of God, the Body of Christ in their futile attempt to destroy God.

    Nothing gives me more hope in the future than to see a man of God by GOD’s definition so opposed that the only end of this is their utter and complete destruction. In Psalms 38 David sang that the steps of a good man are ordered of the Lord. But he also wrote that the destruction of the evil man would be so complete that when he looked for him he could find no trace of him. I rejoice in the work of the Lord evident in my very face at this time.

    “… Thy Kingdom come Thy will be done…”

    Thank you for a read of hope and love.
