The Cards Are Stacked Against Us?

External appearances would say the cards are stacked against us, but we know something this world does not know.  This world believes only in what it can see, hear, taste and touch.  We however know better than to judge based solely on external appearances.

1 Sam 16:7 But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."

Why would some think the cards are stacked against us?  Watch this video:

The globalists have been working overtime to scheme and squabble their way around the giant roadblock called Trump.  Just when it appeared they were going to put the final nail in our coffin with Hillary (they had 're-education' concentration camps prepared all around America for us), the Lord said "Nope, sorry-not yet." and He put Trump in office instead.  They have tried every dirty trick in the book to get rid of Trump and every single thing they have tried has fallen flat on its face.  These people are quite vexed at the circumstance they find themselves in because their book of dirty tricks has worked very well against everyone else.  Now its as if someone else is reading their playbook and countering their every move (they are right to suspect their playbook has been compromised.).

Now their next diabolical scheme is to attempt to steal the election through vote fraud.  They tried that last time, which is why they were so sure they were going to win and they still lost :-).  What these people are not registering is that Trump alone is not what they are up against.  They are at war with the Almighty.  God Almighty can counter any and all of their dirty tricks before any of them see the light of day.

Now, do we know the Lord is going to keep Trump in office?  No, we do not however what we do know is if the Lord intends Trump to stay in office, there is no scamdemic, no black lives matter protest, no riots, no antifa revolution, no vote fraud, nor anything else under the sun they can do to change that outcome.  The Lord's will, not mans nor the enemy's will be done.

We need to do our part and fast and pray about everything.  The Lord has made it clear to us how close we are to the enemy really having his foot on mankind's collective throat.  This new abnormal normal we find ourselves in should provide a constant stimulus for us to pray and seek the Lord's face for His will to be done on this earth.  The enemy is working overtime to destroy us, we must work overtime in prayer to counter the enemy and his plans.  Our prayers and our faith have a powerful effect on this earth which is why the enemy wants us doing anything but praying.  He is fine with us getting involved with politics and any other earthly non spiritual endeavors.  When we start to pray thats when he gets upset because he knows what the effects of prayer are.

As long as the Church is on this earth we must do our job as salt and light.  Light drives out darkness and salt preserves from rot and decay.  There is always something we can do about any situation we find ourselves in.  We can pray.

James 5:16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.

Mark 11:23 "Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.

Today we face many mountains (obstacles), however our God who cannot lie told us we can remove those mountains if we believe and pray in faith.  This world's external appearance would tell us the enemy has all the cards stacked against us.  With all the odds (seemingly) against us, all the Lord had to do was put one man in the White House at just the right time to send the enemy's entire plan into a tailspin.  The Lord is a Master strategist and tactician.  If we keep our eyes on Him and we continue to fast and pray about everything that our eyes see and everything that comes into our hearts and minds as areas that need attention then despite that seemingly overwhelming odds, the outcome is never a foregone conclusion in the enemy's favor.

Here is what the Lord has to say about the enemy's 'advantages' in this world:

    Ps 33:8Let all the earth fear the LORD;
            Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
      9For He spoke, and it was done;
            He commanded, and it stood fast.
      10The LORD nullifies the counsel of the nations;
            He frustrates the plans of the peoples.
      11The counsel of the LORD stands forever,
            The plans of His heart from generation to generation.
      12Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD,
            The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance.
      13The LORD looks from heaven;
            He sees all the sons of men;
      14From His dwelling place He looks out
            On all the inhabitants of the earth,
      15He who fashions the hearts of them all,
            He who understands all their works.
      16The king is not saved by a mighty army;
            A warrior is not delivered by great strength.
      17A horse is a false hope for victory;
            Nor does it deliver anyone by its great strength.
      18Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him,
            On those who hope for His lovingkindness,
      19To deliver their soul from death
            And to keep them alive in famine.
      20Our soul waits for the LORD;
            He is our help and our shield.
      21For our heart rejoices in Him,
            Because we trust in His holy name.
      22Let Your lovingkindness, O LORD, be upon us,
            According as we have hoped in You.

Glory to God
