The Evil Of Hate In The Era Of Jesus Rises Again In The Trump Era
The beginning of desolations?

My perpetual going-through-the-Bible studies have brought me into the the Gospels again.  What has caught my attention this time is the eerie similarities of the hatred of Jesus and the church 2000 years ago, with the hatred today of President Donald Trump and Christians by a large portion of some Americans, if not also some of the world. Now I want to say at the beginning, I am not doing a comparison between Jesus and Donald Trump; they are two opposites.  While Trump opposes much of the things God opposes that eventually will bring judgment such as; abortion, homosexuality, and globalism, a hatred of Jesus and His Church, Donald Trump is not Jesus, not a Savior, nor an example of what Jesus is.  The comparison is to show that the demonic hatred of Jesus by the religious leaders, the governments, and eventually the "mob", also exists in the hearts of people in various aspects of America's culture today as it did 2000 years ago.  It is a sad and revealing state of existence and shows what happens to a people who's heart is apart from God and full of, yes, a demonic inspired evil hate that will have a bad end to it just like it did in the time of Jesus.

Paul tells us that while we see man acting out these evils we are about to begin to see, we must realize that;

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12

So let's begin.

Setting The Stage Of Jesus' Time

The anti-Jesus players during the time of Jesus were; the Pharisees, Sadducees, Scribes, Chief Priest, Leading men in the Temple, Elders, Herodians, the multitudes (common people), and the Roman government.

Pharisees: The main anti-Jesus Jewish sect group who believed, in part, you are made righteous by keeping the law and oral traditions.  Matthew Henry describes them saying, "The Pharisees were zealots for the ceremonies, for the power of the church, and the traditions of the elders"  They loved displaying an outward piety such as praying, giving alms, fasting, and in general attempting to look outwardly good.  They had a large influence over the Jewish people.

Sadducees: Another main Jewish sect like the Pharisees, but with different believes.  Matthew Henry says, "the Sadducees ran into the other extreme, and were little better than deists, denying the existence of spirits and a future state."   Strong's Concordance says of them that they denied the resurrection and the immortality of the soul,  were friendly to the Romans, hated the "common" people and the Pharisees.  They were keepers of the temple.

Scribes:  Strongs says they were "learned in Mosaic Law, and sacred writings;  interpreters and teachers.

Chief Priest: Supposed to be of the same tribe of Aaron.  Once a year the Chief Priest offered atonement for the sins of the people.  They presided over the Sanhedrin (Supreme Council). The Chief Priest had a strong influence over the people.

Sanhedrin (Supreme Council): Strong's described this as, "the great council at Jerusalem, consisting of the seventy one members, viz. scribes, elders, prominent members of the high priestly families and the high priest, the president of the assembly. "  In other words, the judicial system.  But since Israel was under the control of the Romans, large important cases had to be brought before this government for final adjudication.

Elders: According to Strong's in the context of the Gospels, they were members of the Sanhedrin.  These were not Church Elders, as there was no Church at this time.

Herodians: Believed to be supporters of Herod out of the Jewish community who urged the Jews to accept his sovereignty.  "They also spread Messianic ideas which they applied to Herod and his rule" (Jewish Virtual Library  "Herod" was a royal family of Jewish descent that were set up by Rome as "client Kings" to rule Israel under Roman authority.  There were a few "Herods" during the time of Jesus and after; Herod the Great (ruled when Jesus was born, killed all males under two in Bethlehem, hated by the Jews, vicious and demented), Herod Antipas (killed John the Baptist, engaged in trial of Jesus), Herod Agrippa (persecuted early church, killed James, put Peter in Prison, struck down by an angel of God), and Herod Agrippa II (last Jewish King under Rome. May have set Paul free if he had not appealed to Rome)

The Second Temple: According to Britannica, The Herodian Temple was again the centre of Israelite life. It was not only the focus of religious ritual but also the repository of the Holy Scriptures and other national literature and the meeting place of the Sanhedrin, the highest court of Jewish law during the Roman period.

Roman Government:  The fourth world empire to rule over Israel, and the second to the last world empire seen in in the statue that Babylonian King, Nebuchadnezzar dreamt about as well as seen in the fragmented and attempted last world empire in the toes of the statue as seen in Daniel 2 and what we are viewing today.  Each of these empires had and have now, a demonic angelic ruler and their influences behind them.  They were referred to as "Princes" in Daniel 10:12-31.  These are what we wrestle with, but as we will see later, not in our own flesh; it's not possible.

Common People:  These were originally the "multitudes" that followed after Jesus and initially believed.  They eventually became "the mob" that were influenced by the Pharisees to kill Jesus and save Barabbas, the insurrectionist.


Historical Backdrop Prior To Jesus

At the time Jesus manifested himself to Israel, Israel had been in ruled over by, and in bondage to, four world empires at different times for over over about 700 years.  This time exists when you consider both the Northern 10 tribes being taken by Assyria first, and then later Judah by the Babylonians around 586 BC.  When we read the Old Testament (Scriptures), we can see how corrupt the rulers, religious leaders, and most of the people of Israel and Judah had become.  They had become apostate from God.  Even though they were allowed to rebuild the temple by Cyrus after 70 years of captivity in Babylon, God's presence was lacking in the temple because the Ark of the Covenant was not in it.  The Ark of the Covenant represented God's throne that had come down to earth as a token of His presence with Israel.

We don't hear what happened to this symbol of God's presence being with them when the Babylonians destroyed Jerusalem and the temple; at least in the Old Testament.  In fact the last time it is mentioned in the Old Testament is in Jeremiah 3.  In this chapter God is declaring his anger against both Israel and Judah for their turning away from him like an adulterous wife turns away from her husband to others.  God referred to both as "harlots" and "whores".  He offered them another chance to repent and return to him then, but we see in this that Israel refused and Judah only pretended to return; not with a whole heart, but with deception. (Jeremiah 3:8-10).  God said of them in Isaiah 29:13 what Jesus would repeat to them in Matthew 15:8-9,

"1Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:"  Jeremiah 29:13

We would be wise to take heed to this today.

God says something interesting about this Ark that is largely overlooked today because there are a lot of people spending a lot of money looking for it as seen on some of the documentaries and other strange shows on the History Channel and like minded ones.  God said through Jeremiah of a future time,

"16 And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and increased in the land, in those days, saith the Lord, they shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of the Lord: neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit it; neither shall that be done any more.

17 At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of the Lord; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of the Lord, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the imagination of their evil heart."  Jeremiah 3:16-17

The next place that this Ark is mentioned is in Revelation 11 and is during the end of the Tribulation Period of the Anti-Christ.  It is in Revelation 11:19 we see that this Ark of the Covenant, this throne of God, which was a symbol of God being among men in the Holy of Holies within the Tabernacle, and then the Temple, was removed from the earth, is in heaven.  In the same manner, John 1:14 tells us that via Jesus, God again dwelt, or "tabernacled" among the people of Israel again, bringing a New Covenant and a new temple not made with hands, but with the Spirit of God; His church.  And with this New Covenant is God's Salvation offered through the death and resurrection of Jesus to those who believe and abide in the Word.  It is interesting that while Jesus was in the temple many times, he never set foot in the Holy of Holies where the symbol of his presence once existed.  He noted specifically to the Roman Governor, Pilate, that His kingdom was not of this world, but of another place.

So as the Ark of the Covenant was removed from the Temple because the people had rejected God, Jesus, the New Covenant, who was sent by God as another chance to Israel, was also rejected again by the majority of the Jews, was crucified, rose from the dead, and ascended to his throne in heaven until he returns at the end of the Tribulation Period with his Church (that he had beforehand took up), to judge a rejecting world. (Yes, the world has rejected God again; for the last time).


Leadership Of Israel In The Time Of Jesus

Prior to Jesus, the leadership groups noted at the beginning of this article ruled over the people.  They were the elites and learned of the nation.  They had wealth, religious and political status and influence over the people.  Yet, they were still subservient to the global power of Rome. But at the same time they were the controlling forces over the "common" people who were in bondage to, and despised, the rule of the global Roman Empire of that time.  These leaders of Israel actually had it pretty good as long as they controlled the Jews, the Common people, who were also in bondage to these elites of Israel.  The leadership of the Jews had no opposition and had complete power over the Jews.  They were corrupt; lacking in justice and truth among other problems.

These sects of the elite Pharisees and Sadducees came on the scene sometime during the existence of the second temple.  Saul, who was later named Paul, was a Pharisee and a member of the Sanhedrin.  Until his conversion to Christ, he was a prominent persecutor of the early church after the resurrection of Jesus. These sects were far from God, as were the rest of the people at that time.  While God had and still does have, his hand and plan over Israel, God was not with them because they had rejected Him long before.  These sects were the legalists of the time and required the people to follow the Law; yet they did not themselves.  As God said in the Old Testament of the Priests, these present leaders also did nothing to benefit the people.

The State Of The People Of Israel Without The Presence Of God

It did not seem to be a good time for the people of Israel prior to the time of Jesus.  They were taxed by both the Romans and the Jewish leadership and were under the bondage of the legalisms of the Law and Oral Traditions of the Jewish leaders that even these leaders did not follow.  There was was "do as I say, but don't pay attention to what I do" attitude among them.  The Gospels tell us that Jesus said of the common people that they were distressed and dispirited (fainted) and like sheep without a true shepherd (Matthew 9:36) This is the state of man when he is apart from God and has blind and corrupt leaders as the Pharisees et al. were.  Matthew Henry describes their condition as follows:

"They fainted; they were destitute, vexed, wearied. They strayed, so some; were loosed one from another; The staff of bands was broken, Zec. 11:14. They wanted help for their souls, and had none at hand that was good for any thing. The scribes and Pharisees filled them with vain notions, burthened them with the traditions of the elders, deluded them into many mistakes, while they were not instructed in their duty, nor acquainted with the extent and spiritual nature of the divine law; therefore they fainted; for what spiritual health, and life, and vigour can there be in those souls, that are fed with husks and ashes, instead of the bread of life? "  Matthew Henry Commentary on Matthew 9.

From the Gospels we also see that there were a lot of diseases and illness among the people.   We see in Ezekiel 34:2-6 that one of the criticisms of the priests that God had after the Babylonian takeover was that the priests had not healed the people.  God was the healer of diseases back then for Israel and seeking healing outside of God brought bad things (see King Asa Sought The Physicians Instead of God: Bad Outcome).  These leaders also fed themselves instead of the people (the people served their purposes), ruled by force and cruelty, and, as Jesus related in Matthew 9:36, they were lacking a true shepherd.

God said in Ezekiel 34:2-6 how they treated the common man and how they were more concerned with themselves.

Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?  Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock. The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them.

And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered.  My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after themEzekiel 34:2-6

Nehemiah said of them in a prayer to God after they were released from Babylonian captivity,

"33 Howbeit thou art just in all that is brought upon us; for thou hast done right, but we have done wickedly:

34 Neither have our kings, our princes, our priests, nor our fathers, kept thy law, nor hearkened unto thy commandments and thy testimonies, wherewith thou didst testify against them." Nehemiah 9:33-34

And he finishes by saying of those of the past generations,

"35 For they have not served thee in their kingdom, and in thy great goodness that thou gavest them, and in the large and fat land which thou gavest before them, neither turned they from their wicked works.

36 Behold, we are servants this day, and for the land that thou gavest unto our fathers to eat the fruit thereof and the good thereof, behold, we are servants in it:

37 And it yieldeth much increase unto the kings whom thou hast set over us because of our sins: also they have dominion over our bodies, and over our cattle, at their pleasure, and we are in great distress.

38 And because of all this we make a sure covenant, and write it; and our princes, Levites, and priests, seal unto it." Nehemiah 9:35:38

If I may give a hint of what is to come, does this sound like today with the lockdowns, the attempted control of who you can have at your house, control of your livelihood so you can survive?  You must wear a mask, wash your hands, physical distance separation from family and friends, take a vaccine.  But those governors, mayors, and health industries are not effected by their own regulations and are making out good.  And like then, today, we are deceived into agreeing with these controls over even our bodies!  But back to the story.

Demon possession and oppression seemed to be a common thing during that time too as seen in the Gospels.  And as seen in the book of Acts, there were those who practiced magic/witchcraft and those who worshipped the demonic gods and goddesses. These things were most notably happening in what was the Gentile's Roman dominated Asia where Paul travelled.  Jews lived there too.  It is no wonder the demonic possession, oppression and general activity was so common.  Jesus said in Matthew 24:43-45 of a people devoid of God;

"43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.  44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.  45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation."  Matthew 24:43-45

 The people had sadly lived this way for a long time.

The Appearance Of Jesus Brings Hope: To Some

We see in Matthew 4 that after Jesus was baptized and tempted by Satan in the Wilderness, he began his ministry in the region by preaching the gospel and giving the people of hope they did not have.  Matthew 4:16 says

"16 The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up."  Matthew 4:16

Jesus went about doing good everywhere he went.  Matthew further says

"23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.

24 And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.

25 And there followed him great multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judaea, and from beyond Jordan."  Matthew 4:23-25

The Gospels tell us that in doing all these things he was fulfilling prophecy and that had the people recognized the signs of the times, they would have seen Jesus was the Messiah as their own prophets spoke of as referenced in Matthew 8:16-17.  The religious leaders and rulers of the people should have been able to put two and two together.  After all, they were the teachers of the Law and Prophets.  Perhaps they did, but didn't want it to be realized.  Yet the people were amazed at his teachings.  Matthew 7 tells us that after he gave one of his notable messages to the people, their reaction was;

"28 ...the people were astonished at his doctrine:  29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes." Matthew 7:28-29

Ouch!. This Jesus was totally different than their current leaders. As Paul would later describe that this authority had been passed on to him and the other disciples,

"4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:  That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God."  1 Corinthians 2:4-5

Jesus was displaying that there was a difference between him and the rulers; and the people were attracted to it.  The power and authority of God is something that the religious leadership did not have and the difference was obvious to the common people.  This did not set well with the Scribes, Pharisees and others in authority over Israel as noted in the beginning of this article.  How was it that this person who was not of their elite ruler and religious class gain such a popularity and following?  To the leadership he was of no consequence; just the son of a carpenter who all of the sudden comes on the scene with a plan to set the people free from their bondage to sin and to bring them the Kingdom of God and salvation.  He was not one of  them.  He had not been to their schools, not of their class; but now was teaching them and became a hope to the common people?

The leadership began to see that Jesus was raining on their parade.  So jealousy and distain for him set in.  Despite the good he was doing, the miracles he was performing, they started their hate campaign against him by criticizing Jesus for the type of people he was focusing on.  Mark 2 tells us about this saying,

"15 While Jesus was having dinner at Levi’s house, many tax collectors and sinners were eating with him and his disciples, for there were many who followed him. 16 When the teachers of the law who were Pharisees saw him eating with the sinners and tax collectors, they asked his disciples: “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?”"   Mark 2:15

These elites viewed these people with contempt.  In fact in later on in John 7:48-49 we find the Pharisees actually saying that these common people are unlearned and cursed, and that no prophet can come out of Galilee; to them a common people.  If I may give another hint of what is to come, they were the "deplorables" and the "Walmart" people of that time to this ruling class.

As it were, eventually the evil attitudes of the ruling class of Israel and later the global empire Roman rulers, turned to a hate so evil that it literally blinded the rulers and eventually the people followed.  It lead to the final destruction of Israel as a nation.

The Evil Of Their Hate

The Pharisees and others started to challenge Jesus and make false claims against him.  A number of times over three years in public forums, the Pharisees, Herodians and Sadducees asked him questions in order to try to trip him up, hoping he would give them an answer that they could use against him (Matthew 22:15-22, 34-46). The chief priests and elders challenged his authority (Matthew 21:23-27) and many times they accused him of various things, things which were not true, including that he was demon possessed and was believed to be mentally ill, even by his friends (Mark 3:13-22).

Disregarding the good that he was doing because he was stepping on their toes in their legalisms, traditions, and false teachings, they started to plot to destroy him (Mark 3:6, Matthew 12:10-15, John 7:1,19-20, 28-32).  Jesus knew this.  When Jesus made the statement that they were trying to kill him, they denied this was happening.  Again, this went on for three years.  But they could prove nothing of their accusations, nor successfully destroy his movement.  They even sent spies in to try and catch him saying something or doing something wrong (Luke 20:19-26).  But he was on to them and called them out on it as seen in verse 23.  Yet there was still one silent insider betrayer among his closest followers who would later be taken over by Satan: Judas.

Intimidation And Exclusion

Their evil hate then turned on the common people to try and turn the people against Jesus.  They did this by using intimidation and threats on those who would want to follow him.  These rulers made it a regulation that those who they found being a follower of him would be cast out of the temple as were the parents of a blind man Jesus healed (John 9:1-38 esp 22, ).  They tried so hard to keep people from following him that they did not care if they ruined the lives of those who desired to follow him.  So bad was their intimidation that there were even some among the elite class that had to secretly follow him.   They were also afraid to come out and publically admit to this (John 12:36-43, John 19:38).  For as these verses say, they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God (esp verse 43).  Control by peer pressure and fear, and even their own aspirations of success.

These people had become so angered that their evil hate even went so far as to not only try to find opportunity to kill Jesus, they also plotted to try to kill Lazarus whom they had actually seen raised from the dead (John 7:1-11)  Why? Because this miracle caused many to believe in Jesus and they did not like it.  How evil and demented this was!  They actually wanted to go after a person who was the recipient of his grace; a person who could testify of this!  It was a bad thing (and is becoming again) to be associated with Jesus.

Jesus Tells These Leaders What He Thinks Of Them

There came a time, and is coming again, when God had, and will have had enough of falsehoods and enough of the people rejecting him, again!  It was now the time for Jesus to publically expose and chastise these leaders of Israel as he had enough of their false schemes, lies, deceptions, hypocrisy, and rejection of his authority.  We see this detailed account in Matthew 23:1-36 and I will put the entire account here.

"Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,  And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,  And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.  And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.  10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.  11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant 12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.  14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves 16 Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!  17 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?

18 And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty.  19 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?  20 Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon.

21 And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein.  22 And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.

23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.  24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.  26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.  27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.  28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,  30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.  31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets 32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.

33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?  34 Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:  35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.  36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.

37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not 38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate 39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord."  Matthew 23

Jesus hit these leaders of Israel hard and minced no words because as leaders of this nation, they failed to teach the word of God in truth and were like dictators and Roman global government patsies.  They were hypocrites, fakes, liars; looking good on the outside (a pretense), but inwardly were dirty and dead in Spirit.  They told the people what they wanted them to do, but they themselves did not do what they ordered.  They told the people what they wanted them to know, but not truth.   They were elite and above others in their own minds and had distain for those whom Jesus favored. He called them serpents and vipers, which associated them with Satan.  He called them blind guides because they were blind to truth, but still led the people in darkness.  They did not have any truth in them and Jesus was exposing them.

The end of his dissertation to the Pharisees et al was the ominous and foreboding statement to them that "Behold, your house (the Temple) is left unto you desolate".  That was it, the end for them.  Shortly after, the temple was destroyed again, this time by the Roman global government.  Israel was no more as a nation, and would not come back into their land as one until 1948.  This coming back again was part of the continuing fulfillment of prophecy of the last days we are at the end of.

It is hard to fathom that the hate of that generation was so bad that they totally ignored the signs that Jesus was the Messiah, the Son of God.  For example, when the Pharisees and other officers came to arrest the betrayed Jesus in Gethsemane and they asked if he was Jesus; he said, "I AM", they all fell back.  Did that not resonate something with them?  Did that not say, "There is some great power here?  And when  Peter cut off the ear of the officer in the Garden of Gethsemane and Jesus healed it, what was their response?  They ignored this miracle of mercy and grace and arrested him anyway!  Can you imagine what the angels were thinking at this time?  How blind there mob hate, how determined their agenda!

Paul noted of these learned and elite teachers of the Law in Acts 13:26-29 something that is unimaginable... well maybe not so much.  Paul said;

"26 Men and brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and whosoever among you feareth God, to you is the word of this salvation sent.  27 For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their rulers, because they knew him not, nor yet the voices of the prophets which are read every sabbath day, they have fulfilled them in condemning him.

28 And though they found no cause of death in him, yet desired they Pilate that he should be slain.  29 And when they had fulfilled all that was written of him, they took him down from the tree, and laid him in a sepulchre."  Acts 13:26-29

How is it that these experts in the Word of God, something that they taught every Sabbath, could not see that they were actually fulfilling all that was written of him!?  What he did for three years seemingly went right over their heads concerning who he was; and in fact he ended up telling them who he was.  Yet now they failed to see that all the things they had been teaching, they were now actually doing?  That is a lot of demonic hate.  It was blindness that God ended up giving them over to because they had rejected him again (Romans 11:25-30)

Of course these leaders conducted a kangaroo court trial of him.  They didn't have any evidence of Jesus committing any crime, so they made the charges up.  The Pharisees had such an influence over the people that they incited a mob against Jesus.  It is interesting that both the leaders of Israel and the Roman leaders in Israel, were themselves afraid of the multitude mob of the people.  For three years they did not try to seize him at times because of being afraid that the mob would riot and make trouble for them with the Romans.  The Romans that ruled over them, like Pilate, were the same.  They were afraid of a revolt that may cause them to lose favor with Caesar and thus their position.  Pilate, while seeing Jesus had done nothing wrong, and his wife who warned him to not become involved because of a dream she had, still allowed the evil public cry to prevail (Matthew 27:11-26)

The Pharisees found a way to turn the public against Jesus.  He disappointed them in not setting up an earthly rule against the Romans, so they chose instead to save Barabbas, the insurgent.   This was one of the major lies the Jewish rulers told the global rulers; that Jesus was setting up his own kingdom on earth.  And this was one of the major things the people missed; he did not come to set up his kingdom on earth (John 18:33-38)

The Blind Hate And Intimidation Continues With The Early Church

This evil hatred continued toward the Apostles and the early church as a whole as we see in the book of Acts. There was Stephen who was doing great miracles in the sight of all the people.  Yet in Acts 6:8-15 we see that people from a multitude of nations were "disputing" with Stephen but they could not overcome him in argument because of his wisdom and Spirit.  So, they made up lies about him and stirred up the elders, scribes, and the people, and brought him before the Council.  The account in Acts 6:13 says they actually set up "false witnesses" to testify against Stephen saying he spoke against Moses and the Law.  Verse 15 says as the Council looked at him, his countenance was that of an angel.  It is believed that he displayed a perfect peace, confidence and power.

Yet after giving a historical and gospel sermon beginning with Abraham, it offended the High Priest and the others and when I said he was seeing Jesus, they took him out of the city and stoned him.  Paul, who was known as Saul the persecutor, was present when this happened.

 After Paul's conversion, we see during his travels in Acts 19 when he was in Asia, the people rioted because Paul's message was turning people away from their god and goddess worship. This cauised the businessmen to lose their businesses related to this worship.  When Paul went back to Jerusalem, the same Jews that started the problem for him in Asia were also in the temple at Jerusalem, recognized him and incited a riot against him again.  They were like the rioters of today that travel from city to city to incite the people to intimidate, kill, and destroy property.

We see in Acts 23 that there were 40 Jews who made an oath to conspire against him.  Their hate was so intense that they told the chief priests and elders that they would not eat until Paul was dead.  Another riot occurred and Paul had to be protected.  They were making up false charges against him just as they did with Jesus.  None of these, including the Romans, could find that Paul had done anything wrong.  But they did not stop their endeavors of demonic inspired evil and hate.


The Same Demonic Evil Of Hate In Arises In America

As with Israel before, and as during the time of Jesus had their players of hate, today we also have our players in America.  These would be;

Senate And Congressional Members

Appointed And Hired Federal Government Officials (State Department, Ambassadors, DOJ, Intelligence, Health Officials, etc)

Governors, Mayors, City Councils, County Officials

Big Business: Includes Billionaires, Internet Controlling Big Tech / Social Media, Health Industry

News / Entertainment Media (Also part of Big Business)

The Temple (Capitol Building - Washington D.C) Yes, America has it's own temple that was designed after a pagan temple.  It was built as a temple and originally called "The Temple of Liberty".  Like the pagan temples, it was built on a "high place" called "Capitol Hill".  It has a goddess on the top of the outside of the dome, and the god Zeus on the ceiling of the dome represented in the image of George Washington as he is being elevated to godhood.  In addition, in this fresco he is surrounded by his family of gods/goddesses who are given credit for winning the revolutionary war (see In God We Trust?).  In history among the ancient cultures, the dome was considered the domain of the gods, the heavenly realm.  It also houses the Senate and Congress; the lawmakers.  Almost like the "Council" in Jerusalem.

Globalists: Those who want to set up a global system.  Many (not all) in the scope of the above are part of this last days global movement.

This spiritual condition of the same kind of hate that existed in the time of Jesus. That same hate which was directed toward him and the Church, was revealed again primarily starting in 2015. At that time it was directed at the then, Presidential Candidate Donald Trump.  Now again as I said at the beginning of this article, I am not comparing President Trump to Jesus.  This article notes the eerily similar situations and the spiritual condition of the people then, and now, that displays what happens to a society that is apart from God.  As we will see, the hatred of President Trump by some has spawned a hate that is demonically evil just as it was in the time of Jesus.  And speaking of demonic, let me also remind us that as we look at what is going on today, we need also to understand who the real enemy is behind the persons above as seen in Daniel; and as Paul said,

"3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;"  2 Corinthians 10:3-5

The word further says,

"11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand."  Ephesians 6:11-13  Read the rest of Ephesians 6 to see this amour.

Now, having noted these things I want to point out that there are some today in the realm of Christianity, that say that Satan is trying to pit one group against another to divide this nation, such as Republicans against Democrats etc.  They would say that God is against this divisiveness and to stop criticizing each other.  Now both things are true, and there is evil on both sides.  However we are also told in the Word of God to be discerning as to be able to discern evil from good.  God said in the last days he would expose the evil which has been hidden (Matthew 13:24-30) .  And such is this happening today.  While there is evil in each of these political groups and those who align with each, what is apparent is that one has become exposed as more outwardly opposed to God and more in line with the last days authoritarian rule of the one world government of the Anti-Christ and an immoral permissive anti Bible culture.

So as you read this, understand that all these above noted people and groups are being manipulated by the powers and principalities of Satan and our battle is not with the flesh of the people who carry out these things.  Thus, it takes spiritual weapons to defeat them. The word of God notes to Christians that we too were like them at one time, but were saved by the grace of God.  Paul said,

"And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;

Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:  Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved; And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:  That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  Not of works, lest any man should boast." Ephesians 2:1-9

and again he said,

"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,  10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. " 1 Corinthians 6:9-11

Therefore, recognize that as you see them, we were like them except now because of the grace of God.  So we also need to pray for them that they do not received the wrath of God that is about to come upon the world for the very thing that they are pushing for.  This is truly a hard thing to do in view of the great evil that is being perpetuated today; but it is what we are called to do.

So let us begin.

The Hate For Trump Campaign Begins

The move against the candidate Trump started when he announced his intent to run for the Office of the President of the United States after he and Melania came down the escalator in Trump Tower on June 16th, 2015.  The twisting of truth by the media of what he said about illegal aliens from Mexico coming across the border started at that time.

In his speech about the Southern border, he noted that Mexico was not sending their best citizens across the border, but that there were rapists, and drug dealers coming up from Mexico and other Latin American countries.  What he did not say was that ALL of those coming across the border were that way.  He pointed to various people in the audience who we may assume were of Latin American descent saying that these criminals were not like them.  Yet the media made it sound like he was giving a speech discriminating against those from Mexico.  They even tried this later again when he set out to stop MS 13 from remaining in this country and stopping them from coming across the border.  He was called a "racist".  Those on the Democratic side of government also ran with this narrative.

To be sure, Donald Trump came across as rude, crude, boastful, and especially socially unacceptable in the sight of the career politicians of Washington DC and many governors of America's states.  Thus, he was looked upon as more of a joke and not really viewed as a serious candidate for the Presidency.  After all, he is a businessman, not a politician, and with the exception of one other businesswoman, he was running against the political elite, the politically coiffured, experienced, and learned in that what we learned is a corrupt society.  There were 16 other Primary candidates Trump was running against of which 15 were made up of mostly qualified and experienced Republicans in the culture of government and political leadership.  What's to worry?

During the debates Donald Trump did not deal nicely with some of these other candidates.  He would even be personally demeaning at times.  Yet, Trump would surprisingly end up being the nominee for the Republicans; but not without much contention.  Yet the people had spoken.  They were tired of the way politics were affecting their lives.

Trump would be running against Hillary Clinton, a career politician who was supposed to win the Presidency by a lot; according to Democrats.  She was viewed rightly as having a globalist agenda, being a corrupt politician along with her husband former President Bill Clinton, and having ties to people of power in the realm of the world globalist culture.  We would end up seeing this exposed.

Some of us thought that being a corporate business owner with a global business, that Trump would be a Globalist.  It was surprising to see that he was just the opposite of this and was that of having a Sovereign mindset and agenda for the United States, to "Make America Great Again".  Trump ran on a platform of no open borders, but protecting them from the onslaught of illegal aliens.  His campaign was to put American first over other countries.  This was the will of at least half of the citizens.  This was in opposition to the Hillary Clinton Globalist ideal of no borders.  Trump also opposed abortion, was for the Second Amendment on the right to own and carry weapons, the freedom of religion, and smaller government, and against Socialism.

He was against some of the world trade deals the United States was in and rightly believed that we were being taken advantage of by some of the inequitable trade deals we were in; especially with China and with NAFTA.  He also promised to "drain the swamp", i.e., expose the government corruption in Washington D.C.  This included all branches of government, elected and non-elected employees, policies, and associations with businesses and countries that were harming America

This did not bid well with the groups mentioned at the beginning of this section.  It was stepping on their toes and would expose their corruption, put a real big cog in the wheels of their personal and global agendas.    .

The Plot Against Trump Begins In Ernest

As the Jewish leaders feared that Jesus would be a force to contend with in opposition to them, so were those who opposed Trump.  It was later revealed that prior to the election that their appeared to be an effort within the leadership of FBI in conjunction with some unseen powers, to keep Trump from being elected.  It was discovered later that an FBI agent by the name of Peter Strzok told his lover, FBI attorney Lisa Page that Trump was going to lose the election 100,000,000 to 0.  Page was concerned that Trump would win.  But Strzok told her that "they" also had an insurance policy in the event the election for Hillary wouldn't work out.  While Strzok and Page denied that this "insurance policy" was a conspiracy to keep Trump from being elected, others involved in the eventual hearing on this believed that there was indeed an insurance policy.

Research "spying" began on Trump started even before the election and continued until the revelation of what has become known as "The Steele Dossier".  It is believed that this was the "insurance policy" that Strzok was referring too.  It was a research document that allegedly containing allegations of misconduct, conspiracy, and co-operation between Trump and Russia.  Steele was a British spy and FBI informant.  It was mostly viewed as unverifiable and false information but yet was eventually used to illegally get FISA warrants to spy on people related to Trump's campaign.  Plus, it was funded by Hillary Clinton.  Yet, the FBI used it anyway to obtain warrants by not being honest with the FISA Court judges.  They made up lies.

And the mainstream media ran with it.  They all had their "talking points" on this and other falsehoods they shamelessly produced for four years.  It was interesting to see how, when something Trump negative came up, all of these media outlets put out the same speech as if they all got their information and directions from the same source.  Even their words were the same across the various media.  The term used to describe it was, "lockstep". They pushed the anti Trump rhetoric almost daily for four years.  Even when they were exposed numerous times in getting their information wrong, they did not admit to it, nor apologized.  Instead they forged ahead like a bull in a china shop; trying to destroy a Presidency.

The anti Trump distain and hate of anyone who was a supporter or a common person following Trump was coming out.  Hillary Clinton  called Trump supporters "deplorables".  When the texts between Strzok and Page came out, Strzok told Page that while he was in a Walmart he could "smell" the Trump supporters.  This is the way that the Jewish elites viewed the common people and those who followed Jesus.

The Hate Gets Worse

After the election the move to oust Trump continued as did a concerted effort to harass his close allies in the campaign and his selection of some cabinet members.  The FBI, under the auspice of this Steele document, was investigation the alleged "collusion" between Trump and Russia.  When they could not get any evidence from those surrounding Trump to bring up charges, they brought up charges on those who failed to reveal any wrong doing by Trump.  However they had to do something so some went to prison for lying to the FBI or on other non related to Trump charges.  For some of the falsely accused, their lives were ruined.  But they still could not get Trump.  But like with those who went after Jesus, these people who were full of so much hate, could not give up.  They were out to remove him from being President at whatever the cost.  So the plot continued.

Then comes the Mueller Investigation.  Mueller was the retired head of the FBI and was tasked with looking into what was viewed as Russia's attempt to effect the 2016 election and put Trump in.  The focus was "obstruction of justice and the campaign meddling with the election in concert with Russia.  The head of the FBI back then was James Comey.  Mueller was Comey's former boss.  Mueller gathered together a number of FBI and DOJ investigators that were later found to be anti Trump people.  Mueller had to remove some of them.  Yet after two years of investigating, spending $32 million dollars, using 19 attorneys, 40 FBI agents and analysts, interviewing 500 witnesses, 2,800 subpoenas, and 500 search warrants, no evidence was found of Trump colluding with Russia.  But Mueller left the "Obstruction" part open.  Yet again, like with the evil of those who hated Jesus, these people who hate Trump were not done.

Accused Of Being Mentally Incompetent

Early on in Trump's time in office there was talk of a move to get Trump removed from office using the 25th Amendment.  This says that if a President is deemed mentally incompetent, he can be removed from office.  This was also the stance of many toward Jesus in his time. It came up again in this year in October of 2020 and again after the election.  Those in the Democratic party and news media (again) were pushing this now because they believe Trump will not leave the White House because he has not conceded the election, declaring it fraudulent.  This is not a mental issue, but perhaps a fact which half of the voters also believe to be true.  Yet, while there are obvious indicators this may be true, those in the positions of DOJ and and Judges from the State levels to the Supreme Court decline to even look into it in a serious manner.

Accused of Treason

Ex CIA Director John Brennan accused Trump of Treason.  Trump had revoked Brennan's high secret clearance due to lack of trusting him.  Brennan had to back down from this later.  Yet, the news media and others continually accused Trump of Treason.  AND, they still do this even in December 2020.  Of course this is what the leaders of the Jews did to Jesus too; wrongly accused him of treason against the global government of Rome.

Even in the last days of this year, House Republicans were accused of being traitors by at least one media person because they changed their minds about the falsely called "Covid Relief" bill which gave out more money to special interests and foreign countries than to Americans.  Who are the traitors?

The Attempted Impeachment

Like the Pharisees et al, they also counseled together against Trump even more; they started a move to impeach him for "Obstruction of Congress" and "Abuse of Power".  Like with Jesus, when the Pharisees failed at one, they would try another.  This did not work either.  Involved with this were the Congressional "leaders" of the Democratic Party of which some were involved with various committees.  Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff were among the most interesting.  Nadler would not allow Republicans on the committee to have some information they had.  Adam Schiff, Chairman of the Intelligence Committee kept on professing that he had sound evidence that Trump was involved in illegal activity.  Of course he lied and did not have anything.  But it did not matter; lying was ok to justify their end goal.

And, the Democrats had a line of "witnesses" who turned out to be no witness at all due to their only "speculating" or "hearing" information from others.  Some of these were the career employees of the State Department; Ambassadors and such.  There were the anonymous spies inside the White House who allegedly heard a phone call between Trump and Ukraine's Zelensky which was supposed to be evidence of making deals with Zelensky.  In one hearing, Adam Schiff gave his "paraphrased" version of the call.  In giving his "version" of the call, Schiff lied about this under oath as some of it it was not what was said.  Trump published the transcript of the call which showed a different scenario.  Yet with all these lies, none were held accountable.  These things were going on even in the early church where we see that the "false brethren" were sent to spy on Paul.

The Democrats brought into the impeachment hearings, various "mobs" of what they deemed experts in the ability to show that President Trump committed treason and should be impeached.  There were 450 prosecutors who made comments on the Mueller Report.  They had "legal scholars" and a list of over 700 purported historians from Academia stating Trump had in part, violated the constitution, citing the now proven false narrative of Trump coercing the Ukraine ( December 16th).

I looked up the signed document which can be viewed at in an article titled, "Historians' Statement On The Impeachment Of President Trump".  The document said in part,

"We are American historians devoted to studying our nation’s past who have concluded that Donald J. Trump has violated his oath to “faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States” and to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” His “attempts to subvert the Constitution,” as George Mason described impeachable offenses at the Constitutional Convention in 1787, urgently and justly require his impeachment."

In random sampling of this list I found that not all are "Historians" of the political realm.  While most on the list are shown to be professors or instructors at various universities and colleges, some were like two professors at an Oregon university.  One is a liberal arts instructor, and another an art historian in German art.  The document was written by a professor at Princeton by the name of Sean Wilentz who has a different way about him.  He is reportedly a family friend of the Clintons, has been a defender the Clintons, and recently Hillary.  But he did not like Obama, or George W. Bush.  As far as an evidentiary document, it was not in this realm; but a rally of anti-Trump academics.  False witnesses.

Again, it did not work out for the anti-Trump people.  But the media kept up the false narrative and were determined to deceive the masses.

This "experts against Trump" campaign continued as in late 2020 when the Hunter Biden computer issue came out suggesting that Hunter had sketchy dealings with the Chinese, and some other bad things on it.  An article in Politico titled, "Hunter Biden story is Russian disinfo, dozens of former intel officials say".  It said in part, "More than 50 former intelligence officials signed a letter casting doubt on the provenance of a New York Post story on the former vice president's son."

The signed document read in part,

"It is for all these reasons that we write to say that the arrival on the US political scene of emails purportedly belonging to Vice President Biden’s son Hunter, much of it related to his time serving on the Board of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, has all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation. We want to emphasize that we do not know if the emails, provided to the New York Post by President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, are genuine or not and that we do not have evidence of Russian involvement -- just that our experience makes us deeply suspicious that the Russian government played a significant role in this case..."

Some of the well known names that signed this document are: James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence, John Brennan, Former CIA Director, Leon Panetta, former CIA Director, and many other former CIA employees.  Of course we found that their expert assessment was wrong, that is was not Russian disinformation, but was; fact.  Some of those who signed the document were former employees under Trump. This was another attempt to discredit the Trump Administration.  Like those against Jesus, this spiritual spawned hatred has been relentless.

 Publically Viewed Attacks On Trump At News Conferences

There was no "media" during the time of Jesus.  So they verbally attacked him when he was speaking to large groups.  But in these times today, those in power have the media as a tool of propaganda.  Aside from the media giving scathing and sometimes inaccurate and non reported news about Trump, they also most disrespectfully attacked him at the news conferences.  The media, also like the realm of the Pharisees, Sadducees, Scribes and Herodians, tried to trip him up by some of the questions they asked him.  They tried to catch him in lies or to make him look bad.  He referred to them as "Fake News" at these conferences and at all of his campaign rallies before, and after the 2016 election.  Some of them were so disrespectful as none had been to any prior President.  He called them and some political leaders out on it a number of times just as Jesus did to the Pharisees.  If they were not disrespectful to Trump, they were to the several Press Secretaries that he had.  They were, and still are, filled with hate and evil intentions.

That disrespect and hate also was made manifest within the Democratic Party was blatantly made manifest at the State of The Union message by Trump in February of 2020 when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ripped up her copy of the President's speech on camera in front of the whole world.  Such childish and disrespectful hate and contempt from one of the elites.  She later told a news outlet that "this was the least I could do" (Variety  That disrespect went beyond being directed to the President.

Intimidation Of Trump's Associates And Followers

Like what happened in the time of Jesus with the leaders intimidating the followers of Jesus, some elites of the government started a movement to intimidate those surrounding Trump and those who were is supporters and voted for him.  One form of this came in a news conference by Congresswoman Maxine Waters.  She told the people to go out and harass Trump Cabinet members.  She said,

"Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere...

...“The people are going to turn on them. They’re going to protest. They’re going to absolutely harass them until they decide that they’re going to tell the President, ‘No, I can’t hang with you.’”

What an incredibly evil statement to make!  How incredibly un-American but Communistic.  Who would even want to suggest such an evil thing to say you are not welcome anywhere because you support and work for someone you do not like and incite a riot against them.    How incredibly demonic.  It is just what the Pharisees et al did with those who followed Jesus.  It is one reason why some of their own, who may have believed in Jesus, kept silent.  Those who have this attitude are part of what is rightly called, "The Cancel Culture*.

And those who were demonically moved, did just what Waters told them to do.  They harassed those who worked for Trump and even ran them out of restaurants.  But it did not end there.

The harassment and even more the evil hate spread out to anyone who followed Trump.  People who wore the red Trump "Make America Great Again" (MAGA) hats were harassed, intimidated, assaulted, and even killed.  Some people who post pro-Trump messages on their social media sites, or just voicing their own beliefs that those on the Left don't like, have been harassed and even fired from their jobs.  These are like what the Pharisees did to those who followed Jesus.

One of the big stories of harrassment was that of a 17 year old high school student from a Catholic school that was with his classmates at an anti-abortion rally in Washington D.C.  The media claimed that the 17 year old (who was wearing a Trump MAGA hat) and his fellow students were harassing a Native American who was part of another protest.  They lied about it and made the boy out to be a racist. It was actually some others that were harassing and taunting the students. The boy received death threats and the school itself was threatened.  This was so revealing about the media and its extreme propensity to not only lie, but to make up stories that would hurt, even innocent school age kids.  They are without conscience.  As Paul told Timothy would happen in the last days,

Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;... 1 Timothy 4:2

But the media did not get away with this one with the 17 year old.  An attorney representing the boy sued several media companies for slander and defamation of character, including CNN and the Washington Post, for a couple of hundred million dollars each.  Both of these settled out of court for undisclosed amounts.

Yet even today the harassment and distain for this boy has not stopped.  In September of 2020 there was an article about an ACLU (or what has been referred to by many as The American Communist Liberty Union) staffer that said,

"An American Civil Liberties Union official in Kentucky chastised Transylvania University over the weekend for accepting Nicholas Sandmann as a student, calling the move a “stain” on the institution."

Maxine Waters has not given up either.  A December 23, 2020 article in the Washington Examiner note that Waters said,

"...she would like to see President Trump “marched out” of the White House by the military or the Secret Service if he refuses to leave in late January.

My understanding or what I would like to do is I would like to see him marched out of there,” the California Democrat said on MSNBC on Tuesday in response to a quote from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi explaining how she plans to pull Trump out of the White House “by his hair” if he doesn’t leave on his own. "

How condescending, hateful, and disrespectful these statements are coming from government leaders. Recall that the Romans were so disrespectful to Jesus and showed their evil hate of him by pulling out his beard.

Now it is true that some on the Right recipicated, which is not right either.

Four Years Of Continual Opposition

One must wonder how it would have been if those who hated Trump so much would have instead tried to work with him.  How much could have been accomplished in four years instead of wasting time trying to get him on something.  But with Trump's agendas it would never be so for the opposition.  They opposed everything he wanted to do or did.  It was just like in the times of Jesus in which his opponents hated him so much that they could not see the good he was doing and even missed the fact of who he is.  Trump said several times that no matter what he did that was good, they would never see good in it.  He gave an example that even if he found a cure for cancer they would still oppose him.  And they would.

As I said before, Trump is for borders; his opponents are for globalism.  Trump was against being part of the Paris Climate Accord (a Globalist endeavor); his opponents for it.  He was against and retracted the "Iranian Deal"; his opponents want it reinstated. He is against abortion, even defunded the National Institute of Health's program of using fetuses in medical research; his opponents see no problem with killing babies.

The religious hypocrisy shows loudly.  I do not endorse the Catholic church, but Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi claims a religious affiliation with the Catholic church (which does not approve of abortion right now), yet she has no problem with it.  So it is with Joe Biden.  Trump is pro gun rights, the Democrats want to de-gun Americans.  Trump is pro Police, his opponents want to defund the Police, which is demon inspired.  Trump is pro freedom of religion.  Those in Left, while at times evoking their alleged Christian associations, have a real problem with the Bible, Jesus and His commandments, seemingly ignoring them.  For instance, the Bible is crystal clear on the issue of homosexuality.  Those churches that proclaim they are "progressive" as well as the Catholic church have no problem with homosexuality, nor do many in government.  This is to the demise of those involved in it and those churches and goverments that promote it.  The rights of those who oppose these things and want to follow Jesus are violated today just as they were in the time of Jesus.  Jesus said of those who oppose his words,

"This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me".  Matthew 15:8

The Riots And Associated Demonic Activity

As I noted near the beginning of this article, demon possession was a common thing back then.  We are also given examples of demon oppression and, of course the demon influence of those people back then.  It is the same today.  All of the aforementioned is demonically inspired and behind each of the evil deeds are the "principalities" of the dark places.  However the following are a little more revealing of this.

Jesus warned that the last days would be "As the days of Noah were" (Matthew 24:37) and "as it was in the days of Lot" (Luke 17:28).  In the days of Noah the Bible tells us that the thoughts of the people were continually toward evil, the world was corrupt and violent.   Genesis tells us also that there was a lot of demon activity back then with the demons (sons of God; Genesis 6:1-5) having sexual relations with the human women (some do not take this view, but it is there) which resulted in "men of renown", noting there were giants in the land at this time and even after the flood.  Sodom was a city full of sensuality, including homosexuality which was flaunted and was actually quite aggressive (Genesis 13:3, Genesis 18:20, Genesis 19) .  The word tells us they were secure in this.  With both, they did not see anything wrong with what they were doing until the destructions came.  Then, only a remnant in each example was spared.  Sadly ,it will be the same again shortly.

Much of the exposure of this demonic activity of late came after the wrongful death of a black man at the hand of the police by the name of George Floyd.  I noted this in a previous article.  Out of this incident, the demonic forces of Black Lives Matter and Antifa materialized.  Many would be appalled that BLM would be considered demonic.  But they are, not just in riotous activity, but in the spiritual beliefs and activities of the organizers.

Patrisee Cullors Yoruba altar.  Gold stone says, "Black Lives Matter"

BLM organizers Patrice Cullors and Melinda Abdullah are priestesses of an African religion called Yoruba.  Yoruba is a religion of witchcraft in which divination is practiced in the form of calling up the dead spirits of those who were killed by Police.  The Bible calls this practice an abomination and is prohibited.  It was a cause of the destruction of some of those in Canaan and later, Israel.

Cullors and Abdullah were interviewed after some BLM related performance for the dead.  The article said,

"Now, the performance aimed to mourn the lives of the three victims and others, as well as “honor the power of an uprising” that has denounced police brutality and called on cities nationwide to defund their police departments.

After the performance, Melina Abdullah, co-founder of Black Lives Matter-Los Angeles, joined Cullors in a discussion that touched on the role that spirituality and prayer has played in the movement.

“Part of our calling as people who do this work for Black lives is to lift our people up, both in their living, but also in their death,” Cullors said. “The need to lift our folks up feels so incredibly spirit-driven for me.” 

Abdullah and Cullors touched on the practice of calling out the names of the victims that they advocate for in protests and demonstrations. It’s kind of a way to invoke their spirits, Abdullah said.

Uplifting the names of victims goes beyond creating hashtags, Cullors said.

“It is literally almost resurrecting a spirit so they can work through us to get the work that we need to get done,” she said.

By highlighting their names, Cullors said she feels “personally connected and responsible and accountable to them, both from a deeply political place but also from a deeply spiritual place.”

BLM attempting to intimidate and harass diners to comply

And so at their riots with Antifa, they yelled at the pro Trump people they harassed yelling, "SAY THEIR NAMES!"; trying to get the harassed to evoke the presence of these dead people.

In the photo to the left the BLM crowd walked onto a sidewalk cafe and started yelling at people who where eating.  They harassed them, ate their food and generally tried to intimidate them to comply with them while forcing them out of the cafe.

Those leaving the White House after the RNC Convention in August also received harassment and assaults.  Senator Rand Paul and his wife were of the victims of this.  In a Twitter tweet Paul noted he and his wife were attacked by "a crazed mob".  And so this mob was.


BLM and Antifa riots and city takeovers happened in a number of cities.  The worst being in Seattle and Portland as seen in the photos below.  Neither the mayors nor the governors of Washington and Oregon did anything to stop these demon inspired mobs from their destructions and assaults on citizens and police and property.   The District Attorney in Portland declined to prosecute those arrested by police with the few exceptions when they had to, like in the bottom right photo of the BLM man assaulting a white person as seen in a video that went viral.

Demon-like intimidation on Fox News car in Seattle riot Man wearing shirt with Bible verse assaulted in Seattle Weeks of BLM / Antifa riots in Portland Rioter who violently assaulted man later sentenced to 20 months.


The mayors and governors of these states and cities refused help from the federal government when offered by President Trump.  In fact Oregon said they would sue the federal government if Trump sent federal officers in.  Who would want to have these demonic activities to continue?  While these rioters were not even criticized for not wearing masks during the Covid issue because they condoned their demonic actions, people were not allowed to go to church.  One must ask, who, or what would think this way?

The Word tells us who in the following verses.  And their outcome is not good.

"13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.  14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.  15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish 16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work."  James 3:13-15

"10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came so that they would have life, and have it abundantly."  John 10:10

What else does God say about these BLM / Antifa groups and those who would support them? (Even the news media has re-named the street by the White House, "Black Lives Matter Plaza" in their support of these groups and their activities)

"19, Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: sexual immorality, impurity, indecent behavior, 20 idolatry, witchcraft, hostilities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, 21 envy, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God."  Galatians 5:19-21,

Draining The Swamp

Jesus told the Pharisees,

44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.  John 8:44

Before he was sworn in as president and during is four years as President, President Trump promised to "drain the swamp". He was initially speaking of the corruption in Washington D.C.  What has this actually manifested as?  In actuality it has meant is that the "swamp" monsters have really been exposing themselves and that the "swamp" extends beyond Washington D.C.  It has extended out to the governors, mayors and other officials.  It also extended out to the media, who really fit into the realm of John 8:44 because of all the lies they have been saying that are being exposed.  Jesus told the Pharisees that because they were all liars, they were no different than Satan because he was the father of all lies.  He told them that because they were all liars and corrupt, Satan was their father; not God as they assumed.

So as the last four years progressed, we have seen the various parts and levels of government and the media expose themselves as liars and hypocrites who have agenda's that are detrimental to the freedom of American citizens.  Again some of these are; Socialism, open borders and globalism, approved rioting and defunding the police to allow more chaos.  The virus has been an opportunity to propel globalism in the shutdowns by these globalist governors and mayors that are ruining the economies and allow the World Economic Forum's global finance "Great Reset" to be put in place.  The WEC website is not making this a secret.  Their page on "The Great Reset" says,

"There is an urgent need for global stakeholders to cooperate in simultaneously managing the direct consequences of the COVID-19 crisis. To improve the state of the world, the World Economic Forum is starting The Great Reset initiative."

The context

The Covid-19 crisis, and the political, economic and social disruptions it has caused, is fundamentally changing the traditional context for decision-making. The inconsistencies, inadequacies and contradictions of multiple systems –from health and financial to energy and education – are more exposed than ever amidst a global context of concern for lives, livelihoods and the planet. Leaders find themselves at a historic crossroads, managing short-term pressures against medium- and long-term uncertainties.

The opportunity

As we enter a unique window of opportunity to shape the recovery, this initiative will offer insights to help inform all those determining the future state of global relations, the direction of national economies, the priorities of societies, the nature of business models and the management of a global commons. Drawing from the vision and vast expertise of the leaders engaged across the Forum’s communities, the Great Reset initiative has a set of dimensions to build a new social contract that honours the dignity of every human being."

This is certainly fulfilling prophecy of a one world government and economy.

Their website has a list of their global "Partners".  They have the list divided up by world "Industries" (  Of interest is the "Health and Healthcare" category.  In this we find The Bill And Melinda Gates Foundation (health experts?), the Covid vaccine companies such as Pfizer, AstraZeneca, and Johnson and Johnson.  There are the large healthcare companies such as the Mayo Clinic, Kaiser Permente and others on this list. Of interest to American seniors is that AARP is also part of this globalist move.  It is well known that AARP is more of a political entity than any other thing.  AARP also promotes a lot of occult "health" practices under the guise of "science" such as Yoga and Mindfullness meditations.

By the way, the WEF has categories of their "Partners" and the Gates, Pfizer, AstraZeneca, and Johnson and Johnson are listed as "Strategic Partners".  There are numerous worldwide banks and financial institutions listed under the "Banking And Capital Markets", like Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, etc.  One thing of interest in the "Energy Utilities" category are the listed Chinese energy companies of "China Energy Investment" and "China Southern Power Grid" in that according to a CNN story, Hunter Biden worked to try and broker a deal with China Energy to invest in U.S. energy projects ( )

But what does the WEF have to do with the "swamp"?  Aside from the behind the scenes decades of deals between government employees and large American corporations that have deals with China (which are beginning also to be exposed; spies and all), a number of our governors on the left are involved with the WEF through the Paris Climate Accord which is part of the WEF's environmental agenda.  As noted in a previous article, Washington Governor Jay Inslee started an organization called the "U.S. Climate Alliance" (  There are 25 governors involved in this alliance.  In 2018 Inslee went to the WEF conference in Davos, Switzerland on invitation by Al Gore.  Gore was hosting a world climate conference.  At this meeting Inslee spoke about this alliance that had 15 governors at the time.  He was quick to point out that these 15 states represent about 40% of the U.S. Economy.  See WEF video "Stepping Up Climate Action"; Introduction and 38 minutes in.

The interesting thing with this as we look at the WEF's "Great Reset" is that some of the 25 states whose governors are involved in this alliance, have had the most strict lockdowns over the past months (see article, Report: States with most severe lockdowns show slowest economic recoveries  June 2020;

This is quite readily observed with California, the most Covid issues and the most devastated economy.  Do they plan on easing lockdowns so businesses can come back and survive?  It doesn't appear so.  In fact today (December 29, 2020) governor Newsome has plans to extend lockdowns and keep businesses closed.  Inslee has also extended shutdowns. Does it appear they really care about their economies coming back?  Not really when you look at other less restrictive and more thriving economy states.  Again, the WEF needs a world economic collapse in order for their "Great Reset" to start.  No; the WEF indicates this.

And this is a place where the hypocrisy enters in.  While these governors as well as some federal government health officials like State Department health official Deborah Birx warned people not to congregate and not open businesses, and wear masks, a number of them were caught violating their own unconstitutional mandates and warnings.  Birx put in for her retirement after getting caught violating her own statements saying she and her family were receiving threats.  Those who do this are really no better than the others that engage in the same tactics.  But like with the Pharisees of Jesus time, it has been "Do as I say, not as I do" with these officials.

Another case in point is where California's Governor Newsome had mask and gathering mandates and closed business.  Yet he has been shown in a photo at a large dinner gathering at a fancy restaurant and no one was wearing any masks.  The irony is that the people he had dinner with are in the medical field!  Like the attitude of the Pharisees of Jesus' time, these of today believe they are beyond their own orders.  Could it be they are concealing something about this virus?

Another side of this hypocrisy is that while they are destroying businesses of the people in their own states, they themselves are not effected by their, what has been called "Draconian" mandates.  They get a check every month while many in some of these states have to go to food banks, etc. They are so similar to the rebuke Jesus gave to the Pharisees when he told them,

For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers But all their works they do for to be seen of men:..."  Matthew 23:4-5

Waiting For A Messiah

Another similarity between the time and Jesus and now is that in both periods of time there was and is, a looking and longing for the coming of a Messiah.  I say "a" Messiah because there are those waiting for Jesus to "appear", at the Rapture of his Church; those waiting for "a" Jesus to "return" and set up his Kingdom on earth before any Tribulation Period, and those waiting for "a" Messiah that has nothing to do with Jesus.  This Messiah is the New Age Messiah of Eastern  and other religions that the latter two are awaiting.  The New Age  group believe he is alive today and will be manifested soon.

The Buddhists call him "Maitreya".  He is supposed to be a benevolent leader who is to usher in a time of universal peace, put an end to war and disease.  Yet in his reign no one will regard anything of his own.  Man will have no home, possessions, gold, or even relatives.  All will be common (Socialism / Communism) and it is said the people will be able to go into trances to experience joy (today's pushing of various meditative techniques).  He is also known as "Mithra", the sun god, and is equated with the Roman sun god, Apollo.  Apollo is the son of Zeus and an anti-Christ figure.  By the way, Mithra was alleged to have been born on December 25th as was the false savior god of the Bible, Tammuz.  Remember, we were not given the date of the birth of Jesus.  The event situation time frame points more to fall than winter according to some researchers.

Jesus warned about such a false Messiah.  He told the rejecting Jews,

"41 I receive not honour from men.  42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.  43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive."  John 5:41-43

Jesus was speaking of the Anti-Christ spoken of in several placed in the Old and New Testaments.  The Jews rejected him then (and still do) and so does a mostly non-believing world who will "receive" the Anti-Christ when he is revealed (2 Thessalonians 2:6-12, Revelation 13)

A Parallel With Today

After Jesus finished with his severe rebuke and judgement of the Pharisees and rejecting Jews as seen beforehand in this article, he warned them,

"36 Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.  37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate 39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord."  Matthew 23:36-39.

It is apparent by the way the godlessness is manifesting today that the world we live in today have done the same thing Israel did;  rejected the true Jesus as the Lord and Savior of the world.  And by doing this has opened the door to the coming of the Anti-Christ who will come in his own name.  This too brings about the final desolation that comes about during the Tribulation Period that is soon to come.

God has always offered his grace and mercy in the sacrifice of Jesus in our place for our sins.  Yet, in all that is going on today with the virus, the natural disasters, the threats of war, the demonic activity in this country with the corrupt leaders and rioters, I have not heard hardly anyone say, we must turn to, or return to God.  Perhaps one or two guests on some of the conservative media have mentioned it but it is glossed over by the hosts.

So, as with what happened to a nation who rejected God, will happen to any nation or individual who does the same.  In this case it is going to be upon "the whole world" of those who are rejecting Jesus; those who are left on the earth after the Rapture.

The Christian Response To The Evil Of This Hate

In all these people and beyond that have been discussed in this article, there is a big problem for them, an eternal problem.  They have already lost their goal.  What most of them do not realize is that they are being used by Satan, who knows he will not achieve his goal of being like God.  But, in the same manner as we saw leaders and multitudes go after Jesus, and we see the leaders of today go after Trump in a bulldozing effort to remove him in a non stop frenzied way, Satan will also not stop; until he is, and will be stopped.  He is the power behind the frenzied actions of this evil of hate.  He came to steal, kill, and destroy and desires to take all he can with him when he goes.

It says in Revelation concerning Satan and a point in the Tribulation Period about those who will see the truth and are killed because of their belief in God and Jesus in the truth,

"7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,  And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.  10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death 12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.  Revelation 12:7-12

The book of Daniel shows us that there is going to be an end to this attempted unified world in the form of government, business/economy, and religion.  In the 2nd chapter of Daniel, the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar had a dream that was interpreted by Daniel.  Daniel told him he dreamt of a statue that represented the last ruling kingdoms of the world as seen in the photos below. The King of Babylon being the head of the statue, the breast and arms the Medo-Persians, the belly and thighs the Greeks, legs of Iron the Romans, and the feet mixed with iron (old Roman empire) and clay being the currently forming last one-world empire under the anti-Christ.  The Rock formed without hands  is Jesus who destroys and puts and end to all and any further kingdoms of man.  Daniel 2 says, in part

Nebu feet 1
Nebu Feet 2
Nebu Feet 3
The statue of kingdoms in Daniel 2 
31 Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.  32 This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,  33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.

34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.

35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth."  Daniel 2:31-35

Basically an attempt to form this final kingdom is being made at a hyper speed now via such globalist enterprises such as the WEF and other globalist entities and individuals in leadership and media in the United States and other countries.  It will not last and cumulates it's final end in the 7 years of the Tribulation Period.  It is a world that is without God just as it was before the destruction of the Temple in Jersalem.  The last thing that has been restraining this system (which God is allowing to proceed) is going to be removed.  This is the Spirit of God which exists in the the true believers in God.  Paul speaks of this when he said,

That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;  Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.  For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.  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:

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,  10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."  2 Thessalonians 2:3-12

As Jesus told those that rejected him that their house was being left desolate, so those corrupt government officials and employees, the corrupt governors and mayors (on both sides), the rioters, BLM and Antifa; have already lost; every one!.  The WEF and those within it like Bill and Melinda Gates, the Pharmaceuticals,  the deceptive merchants of the earth who are the "great men of the earth", have already lost. Jesus told the Pharisees that they were of their father the devil.  Unfortunately so are these.  Like Satan, these are already finished.  BUT, so is anyone else who has rejected God's salvation through Jesus.  AND, If you are a Christian, we were in the same state before being saved.

Therefore We Are To Pray For Them

Seeing that these desolations destructions are coming upon all those who we have seen and even more, oppose God; what should our response be?  To be sure these are incredibly outwardly evil in their shameless actions and endeavors.  And in our flesh it is hard not to want to be like Jonah's attitude was toward Nineveh and want to see them destroyed.  Even though Jonah did eventually obey God and warn the people of Nineveh, he was not happy about it.  But as noted beforehand, as Paul noted, we were no better than them before we were saved and have a sin nature.  We need to look at them as those who will be going through tortuous times in the Tribulation Period, and if they don't understand then; for eternity.  So, we need to pray for them so that they too believe in God and his free gift of salvation through believing that God sent his only Son to take our place that they may escape the eternal destructions.

Hope In God Alone

God's word says,

"5 Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.

Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit."  Jeremiah 17:5-7

Who or what is your hope in?  Is it in a President that is doing things that seem to be going along with the things God is about?  Or is it God himself?  If President Trump does not continue as President is your hope crushed?  Oh yes would not be a good thing to return to the trajectory this nation was on prior to President Trump.  And if the election was rigged, which one could not imagine that is was not given the persistent daily attempt to remove him from office, even before he was elected, can we depend on our justice system to even look at this possibility?  Apparently not.  No judicial system wants to take the time to look.  However, President Trump is not God, not Jesus, and cannot save us; only God can.  God is moving things along according to his plan; and we see it in his word.

Washington D.C. and the rest of the lower local governments have corruption on both sides of politics.  And if you notice, that any reference to God is missing in the Capitol (Temple of Liberty)?  This is supposed to be the center of our "In God We Trust" government.  Biblically speaking, God would not be pleased if there were any images.  But while there are no references to the God of the Bible in this building, there are references to other gods.  Is not this a sign that this temple is desolate too; devoid of the true God like the Temple in Jerusalem was?  Perhaps so.

Read in Daniel 11:30-31 where a ruler and type of coming anti-Christ called Antiochus Epiphanies IV placed an image of Jupiter / Zeus (ie.himself) in the Temple at Jerusalem and stopped the worship of God.  God called this the "abomination that maketh desolate".  Yet our Capitol dome has an effigy honoring Zeus in the image of George Washington as a god and the savior of America from Brittan?  No wonder there is such corruption and anti God things going on inside this temple.  This is another reason we do not put our hope or trust in government, but in God alone.  But we are called to pray for them.

Perhaps you are a reader who does not live in the United States, but possibly still has a hope in it's government to maintain some sanity in the world, or your government is corrupt and anti- God.  The same applies to you; trust and hope in God!  No man, no vaccine, no government is going to stop and pandemic or other disaster that the Bible says is coming because our hope is in this world.  Like Jesus told the Roman Governor Pilate; "My kingdom is not of this world".  As persons of His kingdom, we are not of the world either (John 17 esp vs 16)

An Invitation

Perhaps you are one who does not know about God, his Son Jesus and the free gift of salvation he has offered to all of us. God has also given an invitation to all of those who do not know him, and the opportunity to become part of his people and his promises.  If you do not know God through the salvation he offered through His son, Jesus, you are invited to learn of Him and the sacrifice he made for all of us in taking our sin and disease upon himself to give us eternal life and an answer to this and other soon coming pandemics and lose of freedoms.

The Bible tells us that ALL have sinned and fall short.  So the first thing to do is

Admit you are a sinner.  Have a heart that is willing to change.  This means telling God you know you sin and desire to turn away from them and start a life following God.


Believe in your heart that Jesus is the son of God, believe that he took the penalty for our sins by being sacrificed on the cross, was buried and then rose from the dead


Call upon the name of the Lord, trusting in everything he says who he is and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord.

God then gives you his Spirit to live in you which is a seal of promise for salvation.  With it He opens your eyes to understand his Word and his truth (John 14:26)

Start by reading the book of John then Ephesians  You can access them on line.  One good source of study is Blue Letter Bible, at  You can select a Bible version of many, but not all are advisable.  I would suggest the New American Standard (NASB), the New King James, or the King James.  Start by reading John chapters 1-3.  On the Tools icon next to each verse is a link to commentaries by various pastors going back almost 200 years.  I would suggest using Matthew Henry, David Guizick, and Chuck Smith to start.  But ask God to give you understanding and he will.  Find a church that teaches the truth in the Bible, asking God to keep you away from the false ones and teachers of which there are many well known ones on the internet.

John 3 says,

There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:

The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?....

It is a powerful thing of God.
