What does that have to do with us? Right now Trump is the easiest target to direct all this hatred at since he has the highest profile but rest assured its not really Trump their hatred is directed at, its us. How so? If you wrap up all the criteria these people are using to label Trump a racist, sexist, fill in the blanko-phobic you will see that it is us and our God that this vile hatred is directed toward. Example? Sure:
According to today's accusers of the brethren, our God is a sexist:
1 Tim 2:11A womana should learn in quietness and full submission. 12I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man;b she must be quiet. 13For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. 15But womenc will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.
^^This is what our God said, and He meant every Word of it. This instruction from our God is absolutely intolerable by the majority of people today. "What do you mean quietness and full submission? What do you mean they cannot teach or assume authority over a man?" That's what the Lord God said and He did not leave it open to negotiation.
Our God is also a "racist"
Deut 23:3No Ammonite or Moabite or any of their descendants may enter the assembly of the Lord, not even in the tenth generation. 4For they did not come to meet you with bread and water on your way when you came out of Egypt, and they hired Balaam son of Beor from Pethor in Aram Naharaimb to pronounce a curse on you. 5However, the Lord your God would not listen to Balaam but turned the curse into a blessing for you, because the Lord your God loves you. 6Do not seek a treaty of friendship with them as long as you live.
Deut 25:17Remember what the Amalekites did to you along the way when you came out of Egypt. 18When you were weary and worn out, they met you on your journey and attacked all who were lagging behind; they had no fear of God. 19When the Lord your God gives you rest from all the enemies around you in the land he is giving you to possess as an inheritance, you shall blot out the name of Amalek from under heaven. Do not forget!
Wow, ^^ that does not sound very 'inclusive' or 'diverse' to me. Nope, in fact our God sounds down right hostile toward the Amalekites. So....our God must be racist too for not being 'diverse and inclusive' enough for today's moralist (but not moral) majority.
And it is well known that our God is a "homophobe"
Leviticus 20:13 'If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.
And an Islamophobe and all kinds of other "phobes" proved throughout the book of Joshua where our Lord tells Israel to go in and conquer the land that was given to them without sparing men, women, children, the elderly or even the animals in many cases. The instruction was to kill everything..
15On the seventh day, they got up at daybreak and marched around the city seven times in the same manner, except that on that day they circled the city seven times. 16The seventh time around, when the priests sounded the trumpet blast, Joshua commanded the army, “Shout! For the Lord has given you the city! 17The city and all that is in it are to be devoteda to the Lord. Only Rahab the prostitute and all who are with her in her house shall be spared, because she hid the spies we sent. 18But keep away from the devoted things, so that you will not bring about your own destruction by taking any of them. Otherwise you will make the camp of Israel liable to destruction and bring trouble on it. 19All the silver and gold and the articles of bronze and iron are sacred to the Lord and must go into his treasury.”
20When the trumpets sounded, the army shouted, and at the sound of the trumpet, when the men gave a loud shout, the wall collapsed; so everyone charged straight in, and they took the city. 21They devoted the city to the Lord and destroyed with the sword every living thing in it—men and women, young and old, cattle, sheep and donkeys.
It was not until recently that I understood why the Lord had to kill so many people. When you read something like Joshua 6 above you might ask why did they all have to die? Why did so many people have to die? Here is why:
Ecc1:9 What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.
The reason there had to be wholesale slaughter before is the same reason there will be wholesale slaughter again. Can you see it, the reasons are already before us. The vile wickedness and gross profane hatred that has been hurled by the losers at the winners in the most recent election is our assurance that all will not end well for most people on the face of the earth. What do you mean brother? I mean we were told wholesale slaughter is coming again:
Rev 6:7When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” 8I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.
Rev 8:6Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them.
7The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.
8The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, 9a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.
10The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water— 11the name of the star is Wormwood.a A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.
12The fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turned dark. A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night.
13As I watched, I heard an eagle that was flying in midair call out in a loud voice: “Woe! Woe! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the trumpet blasts about to be sounded by the other three angels!”
It is becoming much more clear the closer we get to these ^^ days why the Lord is going to wipe out so many people. It is clear that no matter what facts you provide, no matter what argument you use, no matter what you say these people will not change their minds, they will not listen, their hearts are hard and becoming harder by the day. What can be done with such people? Re-read the short passages from Revelation 6 and 8 above. Are you judging brother d? Far from it, the Lord has already done that and is doing that. I simply asked the Lord a question, "Lord why did so many have to die?" You are reading the answer in this post. It answers why it had to happen in the past and why it is going to happen again. All of these people we see around us with hearts full of hatred toward their neighbor are the reason why it has to happen again. What is so ironic about it is the very same people who are purple-faced with rage are the same ones who are preaching 'tolerance.' For this reason our Lord wrote this:
John 16:1“All this I have told you so that you will not fall away. 2They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, the time is coming when anyone who kills you will think they are offering a service to God. 3They will do such things because they have not known the Father or me.
So you can see the people who today call Trump a racist, sexist, homophobic, Islamophobic bigot are really targeting our God and therefore us when they level these accusations. Our God is very 'intolerant' and not very 'inclusive' to all of the vile filth and degradation this world and its people would gladly ram down our throats for as long as they were able to do it.
Trump is not my hero nor am I here to defend him. I just watched a 60 minutes show with Netanyahu on it and who was saying that the new players (like Trump) coming onto the scene could enable a peace deal to be cut with the Palestinians in the near future. If that is so, what does that make Trump? Yes, all this is just speculation at this point but we know what is not speculation-every Word our God has written to us. Everything He said would happen is happening.
Again, why will so many have to die in the book of Revelation? Here's why:
2 Tim 3:1But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.
There is nothing new under the sun. He did it before (read the book of Joshua, what happened with Noah and Lot) and He will do it again (the book of Revelation). We do serve a just and righteous God. I am starting to understand why He did what He did, and why He is going to do it again.
grace and peace
