The Long Game

 Well, it looks like wickedness won right?  One of the most crooked politicians in world history in one of the most fraudulent 'elections' is being sworn in today.  Maybe the Lord was busy with other things and didn't hear the cries of His people or see the fraud taking place as the NWO put another puppet in place in America?

Not quite.  The Lord plays the long, strategic game while we just see (barely) whats right in front of our face.  An example is the cross.  When our Lord died on the cross it sure looked like a dark day for our kingdom didn't it?  Evil "won" right?  Wrong.  What the enemy thought was his most spectacular victory ended up being one of the final nails in his coffin.

What else is going on?  Trump did not make America great again, he was just a doorstop in the timing of the Lord's plan.  This was outlined here before Trump took office 4 years ago.  What did Trump do?  He acted as the Lord's agent in the white house to perform a specific mission of the Lord's design, not his own.  As trump heads into civilian life the deep state, the wickedness and fraud that exists from top to bottom in America has been fully exposed.  Congress, the courts, the FBI, CIA, the supreme court and most notably 99% of the republican party have been exposed as utterly corrupt.  The short term installation of Trump forced the hand of the wicked to reveal themselves in a way that is likely to have long term consequences for them.

So they won a short term victory in a long term game called life on planet earth.  

What else?  One of the primary drivers that spurred Trump to run for office was attending the Obama dinner where Obama made fun of Trump to his face in front of a crowd.  That burned and motivated Trump to seek 'settlement.'  What just happened with the 'election' was extensive fraud that exposed every part of the deep state all the way up to and including Pence who liked to play the poster boy for wholesome goodness but sold Trump and the American people down the river when push came to shove.  So what happened again?  Trump knows he won and should be president again but he was betrayed publicly but this time not at a relatively small dinner party in washington but on the world stage.  Who believes Trump is going back quietly into civilian life with his tail tucked between his legs?

This brings us to what the Lord did with Moses.  Moses was a man belonging to our Lord who was placed in the inner circle of Egyptian political power while the Jews were slaves in Egypt.  Did Moses bring down Pharaoh from within the Egyptian political system?  No.  The Lord first removed Moses from inside the corrupt Egyptian political system, then outside the system Moses was used to bring Egypt to its knees. 

The Lord is not deaf and He is not blind.  The enemy and this world is working out their plans and the Lord is working out His plan.  Trump was used as a tool to slow down the progress of the Babylonian "final solution" for this world.  The Lord brought Trump in and He could have kept Trump in but He decided not to.  His ways are not our ways.  How are we supposed to deal with this short term victory by the powers of darkness?  Read Psalm 37, there is nothing new under the sun:

1Fret not yourself because of evildoers;
be not envious of wrongdoers!
2For they will soon fade like the grass
and wither like the green herb.

3Trust in the LORD, and do good;
dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.b
4Delight yourself in the LORD,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.

5Commit your way to the LORD;
trust in him, and he will act.
6He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
and your justice as the noonday.

7Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him;
fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way,
over the man who carries out evil devices!

8Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath!
Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil.
9For the evildoers shall be cut off,
but those who wait for the LORD shall inherit the land.

10In just a little while, the wicked will be no more;
though you look carefully at his place, he will not be there.

11But the meek shall inherit the land
and delight themselves in abundant peace.

12The wicked plots against the righteous
and gnashes his teeth at him,
13but the Lord laughs at the wicked,
for he sees that his day is coming.

14The wicked draw the sword and bend their bows
to bring down the poor and needy,
to slay those whose way is upright;
15their sword shall enter their own heart,
and their bows shall be broken.

16Better is the little that the righteous has
than the abundance of many wicked.
17For the arms of the wicked shall be broken,
but the LORD upholds the righteous.

18The LORD knows the days of the blameless,
and their heritage will remain forever;
19they are not put to shame in evil times;
in the days of famine they have abundance.

20But the wicked will perish;
the enemies of the LORD are like the glory of the pastures;
they vanish—like smoke they vanish away.

21The wicked borrows but does not pay back,
but the righteous is generous and gives;
22for those blessed by the LORDc shall inherit the land,
but those cursed by him shall be cut off.

23The steps of a man are established by the LORD,
when he delights in his way;
24though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong,
for the LORD upholds his hand.

25I have been young, and now am old,
yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken
or his children begging for bread.
26He is ever lending generously,
and his children become a blessing.

27Turn away from evil and do good;
so shall you dwell forever.
28For the LORD loves justice;
he will not forsake his saints.
They are preserved forever,
but the children of the wicked shall be cut off.
29The righteous shall inherit the land
and dwell upon it forever.

30The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom,
and his tongue speaks justice.
31The law of his God is in his heart;
his steps do not slip.

32The wicked watches for the righteous
and seeks to put him to death.
33The LORD will not abandon him to his power
or let him be condemned when he is brought to trial.

34Wait for the LORD and keep his way,
and he will exalt you to inherit the land;
you will look on when the wicked are cut off.

35I have seen a wicked, ruthless man,
spreading himself like a green laurel tree.d
36But he passed away,e and behold, he was no more;
though I sought him, he could not be found.

37Mark the blameless and behold the upright,
for there is a future for the man of peace.
38But transgressors shall be altogether destroyed;
the future of the wicked shall be cut off.

39The salvation of the righteous is from the LORD;
he is their stronghold in the time of trouble.
40The LORD helps them and delivers them;
he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
because they take refuge in him.

Looks like Psalm 37 could have been written today right?  

We are part of the long game, a long term plan that ends with scores being settled.  Things do not end well for the wicked.  But more likely than not we wont have to wait long for the wicked to begin reaping the harvest of what they have sown.  They did not allow Trump a moments peace over the 4 years he was president.  Do they think they will be able to settle into a state of peace and tranquility, back to business as usual now that they have what they wanted?  Here is a clue:  

Is 48:22

"There is no peace," says the LORD, "for the wicked."

In the meantime what are we to do?  First of all remember this:

7Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him;
fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way,
over the man who carries out evil devices!

8Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath!
Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil.
9For the evildoers shall be cut off,
but those who wait for the LORD shall inherit the land.

Second, our individual missions have not changed.  What each of us is supposed to do for the Lord, employing our unique talents and abilities has not changed.  We have 'talents' (Matt 25) that are to be employed for the advancement of our Father's kingdom, so focus.  Focus on our mission like a laser.  Focus on the Lord, prayer and His Word.  Some things like this never change regardless of what nonsense the enemy and his servants try to pull.

Stay focused, do what the Spirit of the Lord has impressed upon your heart to do.  Pray, fast, stay in the Word, use your talents for the kingdom.  Simple stuff.  The Lord has been and is currently working day and night on the big picture stuff.  He is our General, we are the foot soldiers.  He determines the plan, we work out His plan according to the strength and wisdom the Spirit gives us.

The enemy is trying to act fast now because he knows his time is short.  The enemy, this world and those who love this world are on a short term timeline.  We are on an eternal timeline, time is on our side.  For this reason, time and again we are counseled not to fret but to be patient:

Rev 3:10

8“‘I know your works. Behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. 9Behold, I will make those of the synagogue of Satan who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie—behold, I will make them come and bow down before your feet, and they will learn that I have loved you. 10Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth. 11I am coming soon. Hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize your crown. 

The Lord is good and He is in full control.  Be patient, keep the faith and watch what the Lord our God, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, General of all Supreme Generals will do on the battlefield that is this earth.  If we do what He tells us to do, we will not be disappointed.  Glory to God.

Grace and peace
