The Truth Is I am Disheartened With the Republican Party
At the local level, I came to believe the Republican party is controlled by the local builders. Remember Joni Mitchell’s song : "They paved paradise And put up a parking lot With a pink hotel a boutique And a swinging hot spot Don't it always seem to go That you don't know what you've got 'Till it's gone."
I also never found the state level of party politics interesting. However, growing up in Washington DC, from childhood on, I have always been involved at the national level.
And with Trump, something happened that kicked everything up many notches.
Those of you who have followed the blog over the years, know that when Trump announced his candidacy and was coming down the escalator, God spoke to me. He informed me Trump was to be president.
I was not surprised that God would take a personal interest in America. After all we are the pivotal country in His work to establish His Kingdom.
As I always do, I asked God what part I was to play. And even though I have had many miracles in my life, I was totally unprepared for what followed. Although he had no idea of who I am, one of the most famous prophets in the world , not only called me out by name on TV, but so I would know he was speaking to me, he told me exactly what I was doing at the moment I heard his broadcast. The prophet then told me specifically what God wanted of me.
I was to be an intercessory prayer warrior for Trump.
And as St Paul said before " King Agrippa, I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision." I immediately joined one of the many intercessory prayer groups–Potus Shield. We all pray for hours daily. We have prayer conference calls with thousands around the world and we hold large meetings national and international meetings..
I need to cut this article short. So, back to the disheartenment. Every personal attack on my president is painful. In my long life I have never seen such over-the-top virulence. Trump has sacrificed so much to bring his enormous talents to save our country and also the church. I understand Trump and his family are taking these hits precisely because God called him and anointed him to be president. The hatred is directed more toward God than to him. This is a spiritual battle which can only be won spiritually
Trump also understands this as well as the blowback he receives from the corrupt swamp creatures he is driving out.
But with so many in my own party working to destroy him, it is dispiriting.
