Some say that we “deplorables” (I wear the name with pride) worship Donald Trump – that we have made an idol of him. Perhaps we have rested our hopes too much on the man: if we have, we must repent of it. But I rather suspect that our love for him has a different basis. Every movement must have a leader. The peaceful protests of the people of Hong Kong, and the “Arab Spring” of the Iranians failed because they had no leader.
Donald Trump is a true, capable leader, and absolutely dedicated to the cause. We follow him, not only because he advocates and defends our precious freedoms; but because, as President, he proved his genuineness by keeping the promises he made to us.
I am on record that we cannot hope to save our country unless God intervenes in a mighty way. Our leader’s removal from office underscores the point: political means will be ineffectual unless God acts in our favor. Accordingly, we must humble ourselves, as Mr. Trump has been humbled. Give God all the glory for the good our Donald has been able to accomplish!
Biden and his puppet-masters will try to undo all the good he has done. Our prayers invoke a higher power to frustrate them. They cannot succeed unles he permits it; but God uses means; and Donald Trump is evidently the man He has given us. It may be that all our efforts will fail because God has determined that it is time to require the blood of innocent babes, and to judge America for her sins. But we do not absolutely know that. God would have delayed his judgment on Sodom for the sake of ten righteous men in the whole city! We must not presume to say that God’s forbearance is exhausted; while at the same time we say that we are praying in faith for it to continue.
So we must continue to hope while we pray; and to resist the tyranny of the high and mighty Globalists and Communists who now hold the seats of power. Do not cower before their seeming invincibility. Think of that corrupt career politician who has usurped the Presidency as another Pharoah, secure on his throne; but in truth, ready to be cast down and crushed by the power of the God he proudly refused to acknowledge!
It is our duty to resist while we can, regardless of the outcome. We will be judged by our character and our deeds, no matter whether we fail or succeed. The stalwarts whose brave, yet futile stand at the Alamo are rightly held in honor! The Greeks who gave their lives to hold back the vast horde of Persian invaders at Thermopylae, without hope of final victory, are justly remembered two thousand years after for their indomitable courage! And all the martyrs of the Christian church “failed” when their lives were snuffed out; but they live and reign with Christ, and in God’s judgment their failure was the ultimate victory!
So take heart! It is not a man that we worship; but the God who gave him to us in His mercy, when the kingdom was threatened by the dismal specter of an Athaliah on the throne! May that same mercy preserve what is left of our republic, and establish “the rule of law, not of men”, in answer to our fervent, believing prayers! It seems impossible; but our Lord Jesus delights in delivering His people just when their cause is lost, and deliverance seems impossible! Then the glory will go to the True and Almighty Deliverer; not to us, who are at our best merely His instruments.
Soli Deo Gloria!
