I have never been interested in politics. I have never voted in my life. Politics was never really discussed in my family growing up or in my circles of friends. What little exposure I did have was quickly met with boredom as soon as I saw the suit at the mic with his beaming smile and making promises he probably wasn’t going to keep. So that’s my non-background background on politics.
Then one day my husband was watching Trump on TV giving a speech and I was in another room. I passed by and heard a little of what he said. He talked about things he wanted to do if he was elected President and I was floored! I was floored because as he was speaking, I noticed that everything he said lined up with scriptures. He talked about:
• Creating Jobs
…And to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you, so that you may walk properly before outsiders and be dependent on no one. 1 Thess 4:11-12
For even when we were with you, we would give you this command: If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat. For we hear that some among you walk in idleness, not busy at work, but busybodies. Now such persons we command and encourage in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work quietly and to earn their own living. 2 Thess 3:10-12
You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be blessed, and it shall be well with you. Ps 128:2
• Building a Wall
From ancient times until today, we have borders which protect the citizens. The bible, especially the Old Testament is filled with examples of borders, boundaries, and walled cities – too many to reference here.
• Better deals for America/Fair Treatment
The Lord detests the use of dishonest scales, but He delights in accurate weights. Pride leads to disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom. Honesty guides good people; dishonesty destroys treacherous people. Prov 11:1-3
• Pro law enforcement and justice
Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly. Lev 19:15
Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy. Prov. 31:9
Blessed are they who observe justice, who do righteousness at all times! Ps 106:3
This is just a few of the issues that he stands for that are biblically based which was enough to get my attention. I continued to watch him as time passed and I was amazed that the things he was saying lined up with scripture. I saw that he was selfless and put others first. I saw that he promoted fairness for all Americans in different situations such as taxes and health care. I saw that he wasn’t perfect; that he had some faults like King David did yet God used him greatly. And one of the greatest things is that he is a strong supporter of Israel. It was for all of these reasons and more that I saw God working through him. As times passes and as I see everyone come against him and yet he prevails – against all odds and in miraculous fashion, I am convinced that God is going before him. No one man could withstand all of the dirty tricks, lies, deception, and collusion and survive it yet President Trump’s base is stronger than ever and growing in spite of what the media tells you. I see God’s promise in Gen 12:3 being played out: “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse;” (speaking of Israel).
So there you have it. Not everyone will agree with me and that’s ok. I’m simply sharing what I see and recognize that most of Trump’s issues are rooted in the bible. Subsequent posts will be geared more towards the things going on now and what I think is happening ‘behind the scenes’ in the spiritual realm.
p.s. I will not approve any inflammatory remarks so if you want your comment to be seen, then play nicey nice. 🙂 Thank you 🙂
