Trump, Prophesy, and How History Repeats Itself

I was watching a documentary film on Netflix recently called "Einsatzgruppen."  These units went around Europe and Russia exterminating the Jews.  Watching this reminded me also of what I read in the book "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich" which brings to mind the question what happened before and what is going to happen in the future?  We know what happened, thats what is in the history books and documentaries.  We also know what is going to happen, that is written in the pages of our Bibles.

We will start with what happened.  In both the einsatzgruppen documentary and the book Rise and Fall of the Third Reich we saw what we can call action and reaction.  This principle works in politics, physics, and all other forms of worldly and other-wordly settings.  In the case of historical action, the world saw many if not most of the Jewish people, pre-WWII aligning themselves with the left.  Case in point, Karl Marx the founder of communism was Jewish.  So what?  So swinging the pendulum farther to the left (and continuing to try to push it that direction) meant it was inevitable that a counter movement pushing in the opposite direction was bound to come and it did in the form of Adolph Hitler-the reaction.

What do we see today?  If you were to poll most Jewish people in America today, where would they fall, left or right?  Hollywood (California) and New York have sizable Jewish populations, which way did those states lean?  Overwhelmingly left, socialist/communist for Bernie and Hillary.  Again, so what?  So, we just saw a reaction in the election of Donald Trump but the reaction isnt over and neither is the action.

The election is over but the left is busy pushing in any and every way they can to continue to move America (and the rest of the world) to the left.  This movement includes some very prominent Jewish people like George Soros who now claims he is an atheist.  Once again, we see the same exact historical forces aligning themselves to play out in the future just as they did in the past.  What do you mean brother?  The left which is inhabited by a significant Jewish contingent which will once again call forth their own destroyer from the right.  Where do we get that idea from?  1.  Historical precedent and more importantly 2.  From the pages of the Bible.

Israel will be surrounded with armies.  How is that going to happen?  The same way it did before.  Bad things are happening today and bad things will happen in the not too distant future and guess who will be blamed for it?  The Jews, there is nothing new under the sun.  There is coming a time when the man of sin, the anti-Christ will array the worlds armies against the Jews in an attempt to exterminate them once again:

Luke 21:20And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. 21Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. 22For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. 23But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. 24And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

In exactly the same way that Hitler came to power pre-WW2, so the anti-Christ will come to power in the days ahead.  Read your history, what did Hitler say his reasons were for attacking the Jews (he had many reasons) and can those same reasons be found around us in the world today?  This same reasoning will resurface and in fact is already resurfacing today we just have'nt seen the blame laid at the feet of the Jews yet but that is coming.  There is a decidedly bad taste in the mouth of at least half the population today, people are angry.  How will this anger play itself out?  Again, read your history books and read your Bible. 

Rev 6:3And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. 4And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Luke 21:20And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. 21Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.

What we are seeing with Trump is action/reaction.  With history and our Bibles to guide us we can see this is going to get very bad for the Jewish people who did not see Hitler coming before WW2 and do not see the anti-Christ coming today.

We know what is coming, we do not have to guess.  Our Lord told us thousands of years ago what was going to happen and it has played out precisely as He said it would.  All glory and honor be to the Lord our God who told us beforehand what would happen.

Mark 13:22For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. 23But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.

We are watching the rise of anti-Christ and the fulfillment of prophesy.  I do not know who the anti-Christ is but the stage is being set for him just as it was set for Hitler. Getting involved in politics and protests will not drive him away, spiritual problems demand spiritual solutions.  The anti-Christ poses a spiritual problem for this world and the only solution is Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

2 Thess 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

grace and peace
