For me, the reality is very simple. Regardless of who wins the Oval Office, Satan’s plan for world domination will continue unabated. He will get what he wants because God is allowing that to happen. That’s the only reason he will get what he wants, but please note that even there, Satan is playing right into God’s hands and God will hold Satan up to ridicule to the entire Creation, which will then be forced to recognize there is only one God, one Almighty, one Most High. Not only will Satan be forced to reckon it, but this evil world will also see it and be forced to accept it. That’s what this whole thing is all about.
What is most interesting and shows exactly how many on the left truly think is the way WikiLeaks is being hounded and vilified. In essence, they have released personal emails to the public. Legal minds can argue whether what they did is legal or illegal, but the information is out there in spite of that. It shows a corrupt DNC system that will do just about anything to bring opponents down; opponents like Bernie and Trump. This isn’t new as this type of corruption has been around since the Old Testament times. It is, unfortunately, part of the fabric of humanity due to our fallen natures and people willing to give into it.
The times are becoming more difficult for all people, but especially for Christians, because I believe God is allowing Satan to gain dominion over this world for the coming seven years known as the Tribulation/Great Tribulation. It will kick off when one man steps onto the world’s stage and brokers a peace agreement with Israel and the surrounding Arab nations (Daniel 9:27). That man – the Antichrist – will eventually rise to the top of the heap and will be allowed (by God) to rule this entire planet for seven years. Ultimately, it will be Satan ruling through Antichrist, who is really Satan’s spiritual son. In that sense then, Satan will fulfill, to some degree, his promises he made to himself (yet God heard because of His sovereignty and omniscience), that he would become “like the Most High,” (Isaiah 14:14).
In reality, I believe Moses’ anger not only kept him from entering the Promised Land, but ruined the perfect imagery that God Himself had desired to provide through the two instances of bringing water from the rock through Moses. Once the mistake was made, there was no going back and even though surely forgave Moses his sin, the consequences of Moses’ sin remained and he was not allowed to enter into the Promised Land but died and was buried outside that Land in a place known only to God Himself.
There is a global malaise developing throughout the world, created by Satan and his minions, and aided by the strong delusion that God will send. I personally believe that the delusion is blanketing this globe as it would appear that Satan is in the final stages of putting all the pieces together to build his global one-world kingdom that God is allowing him to build. This is taking its toll on the lost and more and more people will begin to experience what the person I’ve quoted above is experiencing. They have no hope without God in Christ.
The Christians who live in exceedingly dark countries, where evil reigns seemingly unchecked, understand how to let go of the things of this world. They allow God to slough off the things that keep them connected to the system of Babylon. You can move out of America and go to another country, but you can still be connected to the system of Babylon spiritually. God wants us to come out of her so that we are dedicated to Him and His purposes, so that we will stop thinking about our “rights” and “privileges” and focus on His will.
But is this what Christians in other countries are concerned about? Is this why they are persecuted, often to their deaths? I am coming to the firm conviction that Satan has blinded the minds of many Christians today because they are far more militant in their belief that they must do whatever they can to save America, while the lost die into eternity all around them. They seem to have little to no concern for these people whom they view as “enemies” not of the cross of Christ, but of America.
