Getting Trump

Sen. Lindsey Graham described his epiphany, when during the Kavanaugh hearing, he suddenly "got" (understood) Trump. Overnight he became one of the clearest-eyed supporters of Trump in the country.

Sudden moving from darkness into the light is inspiring. From Scripture we read of people like St. Paul who had scales fall from his eyes. In another event, the disciples suddenly had their eyes supernaturally opened.

Jesus describes a people whose eyes are blinded and hearts hardened, "so they can neither see with their eyes, nor understand with their hearts." Today that description fits those who just don’t "get" Trump.

Fox runs snippets from Demoncrat controlled media like CNN, MSNBC . These leftist anchors look right into the camera and say "Are you going to believe us or your own lying eyes?"

For example, scenes come on screens revealing thousands of migrants like ants streaming across our borders. The anchors proclaim: "There is no crisis. Trump is manufacturing it" and, on their screens they learn that Trump has created the greatest economy in history and they say "Trump is trying to destroy our country."

They show Trumps beautiful wife and exceptional children who adore him and they say "Trump is a scumbag." (Readers can now add their own)

So then, where is this blindness coming from? St. Paul says: " Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe." So, why blind the political Left? Who knows? But it was not lost on Christians in this last election as they poured out to elect Trump.

The anti Christian and anti Israel bias in the Left is becoming pervasive all over the Western world. Christians feel embattled by unelected leftest judges. Obama announced we cling to our guns and or religion. He also informed us we were no longer a Christian nation. Hillary signaled us by saying we would have to be changing our doctrines to suit the Left.

From a Christain’s point of view, the only one with a vested interest in taking over a political party is the prince of darkness. Just like in taking over the Nazi party, he can destroy a nation.

Right now, a lot of Christians are following "The Paradigm." by Jonathan Cahn. Cahn, is showing that history can be circular. He traces a period in Israel under Ahab and Jezebel. Leftest administrations today, eerily parallel Israel’s history to the exact dates.

In the Paradigm, Ahab and Jezebel are destroyed by a Trump-like figure. God then gave them the prophet Elijah a breathing space to restore the faith of Israel.

Right now, Christians believe we are in the "AGE OF ELIJAH!" We must pray for the Left to have epiphanies.

History has always been circular. Most people refuse to learn from the past, especially if they do not experienced an event personally. This is true even if one leaves the Biblical aspects of history being circular out of the equation. The interesting thing is that those targeted for the new holicost are hevily armed with privae firearms. This is why the establishment is so anti-gun.

I don't think it was an epiphany so much as Graham finally pulled his nose out of John McCain's ass...

Wolfe, as you know, explanatory theories are developed to make sense of our wold. The brain is hardwired to develop them.

Your explanatory theory for Lindsey’s epiphany (i.e.“I don't think it was an epiphany so much as Graham finally pulled his nose out of John McCain's ass...”) does not work for me. It does not account for the crystal clearness that Lindsey and others like him are displaying. I am sure you have noted, as I have, there is an inexplicable darkness over the minds of the anti-Trumpers. They can’t even see their hands right before their faces.

I am trying to explain how people come from darkness into the light.

One place to see political epiphanies is in the fastest growing segment of Christianity--the Spirit-filled movement. Those experiencing the outpouring of the Holy Spirit almost unvariably become politically conservative and even Trump supporters. As Scripture says: “The people who walk in darkness will see a great light. For those who live in a land of deep darkness, a light will shine.” Isaiah 9:2 NLT

Wolfe Another part of my explanatory model which works for me, goes like this: The powers of darkness have a vested interest in blinding the eyes of anti-Trumpers. Why? Because the prince of darkness sees Trump’s threat.

With Trump’s accomplishments in supporting Christianity, Satan should be worried. In just two years, Trump has been dismantling the counter-religion of political correctness. He has passed all sorts of protections for religious freedom. He is appointing judges who will follow the Constitution.

Trump has halted the use of the IRS to punish Christians who involve themselves in politics. He is blocking the Left’s laws that could put Christians in a bind as they tell people about God’s Kingdom. He has surrounded himself with authentic Christian advisers, including his vice-president. He encourages prayer and Bible study in his administration.

Biggest act from the point of view of the prince of darkness, is the recognition of Jerusalem as the Jewish capitol. The devil knows reestablishing Jerusalem is the signal for the Messiah to return.

Many Christians believe that God has given us Trump to give the church a breathing space for rebuilding after 8 years of near disaster.
