Congressman Chaffetz Says Trump Is No Better Than Obama

This Chaffetz guy is one of the handful that I actually thought was doing a decent job and guess what?  He quit.  Why?

Trump is no better than Obama, and in some cases he is worse.  Now that is saying something. 

This should be a lesson to everyone.  There always was one and only one way to get the change people want but they reject it:

2 Cron 7:14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

^^ The Lord God Himself is telling us above how to fix the mess we have but people don't want to hear it.  They would rather vote....I don't see a single Word above that says anything about getting involved in the political process to get change, do you?  Zero, nothing, it not there but year after year the 'pastors' and so called prophets get up and spout the same tired lies and people continue to listen to them.

The good in all this is some people will finally throw their hands up and give up on this world and its systems.  We are in this world but not of it.  We are aliens and strangers here:

1 John 4:4You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 5They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them. 6We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirita of truth and the spirit of falsehood.

1 Peter 2:11 Beloved, I exhort you as aliens and sojourners, to abstain from fleshly desires, which war against the soul,

1 John 2:15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them.

John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.

People's confidence in the systems of this world is falling to an all time low.  Look at the approval ratings for congress, each time it hits a new all time low it finds a way to go lower still.  To what end?  These things serve two purposes. 

Purpose 1 here:

Matt 6:9After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.  10Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11Give us this day our daily bread.
12And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Those who are in Christ see the rot in this world and say "the Lord was right we need His kingdom  on earth as it is in heaven."

Purpose 2 here:

2 Thess2:7For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 8And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. 9The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, 10and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

The current breakdown in public confidence is driving one group of people into the arms of Jesus Christ and the other group into the arms of anti-Christ. 

Be assured, change is coming and it will be dramatic.  The gospels, the books of Daniel and Revelation assure us of the change that is coming.
