Now What? :: By Grant Phillips

Donald Trump was elected to be the 45th President of the United States on November 8th, 2016. Almost no one believed it could actually happen. The Democrats were already preparing for their victory celebration, but around 8:00 P.M. that evening something happened. The tide began changing. Suddenly, the clouds grew darker and darker over the Clinton camp, until the realization finally sunk in, that there would be no celebration that night.

Since then, true to form, those who opposed Donald Trump for President have been whining, throwing tantrums, destroying property, attacking individuals, and making threats against Mr. Trump. We who have supported Mr. Trump may be the “deplorables,” but those who are making all this ‘noise’ are typical of the liberal reaction in this country when they don’t get their way. George Soros is behind much of this illegal activity by paying hired thugs to cause intimidation and destruction.

When we lost to Obama in 2008 and 2012 none of this garbage occurred, but look at what is happening now. Obviously, this says a great deal about the character of those who support the liberal Democratic agenda. How many will actually leave the country who promised to do so if their nominee lost? Hopefully, all of them. I would gladly help them pack.

Doesn’t this sound exactly like children who are spoiled brats? They get mad, fight, threaten, and take their toys and leave. Fine, be gone with you! Do they really think they are so important that they will be missed? They probably do.

There is one absolute, positive outcome of this election. The election results were clearly by the grace of God. Many Christians were praying, and actually went out to vote. The hard-working, common folk of America had had enough, and made their voices heard. Yet, there is an equal amount of citizenry who actually wish to retain sinful ways and corrupt leaders. We need to remember that.

The election of Donald Trump made history on November 8th. I think the Lord likes to take impossible situations sometimes and show us just what He can do. This was nothing to Him. It was a piece of cake, but the message is clear. God has put Mr. Trump in office for whatever His reason may be. Perhaps it’s one final opportunity to see His power and return to Him in true repentance.

Folks, we aren’t out of the woods yet. Many things can happen. Mr. Trump cannot save this country or make it better, but God can, IF His people will glorify His name and continue to do so. The liberal left will not give up. Nothing they do would surprise me. They are rabidly energized by satanic forces to accomplish their evil agenda. We are in a spiritual battle.

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12 NIV)

So now what? What do we do? The election was won because God’s people prayed and God granted our request. Therefore, the answer is obvious. We need to stay on our knees (metaphorically) praying for our new President and those around him. We need to be much in prayer for Congress. There are still those in Congress who hate God and are influenced by evil forces. We need to pray for each other, that we not become lazy. Satan’s forces will be looking for weak spots to attack.

My prayers are that abortion will be reversed, ILLEGAL aliens will be removed and kept out of this country, the Constitution will be upheld by newly appointed Supreme Court judges that believe it means what it says, that homosexual marriage and ‘transsexual’ bathroom usage will be reversed, that the 1st and 2nd amendments will be honored, and all the other liberal hair-brained laws will be reversed. That’s a lot to ask, but nothing is impossible with our God. The Lord God can use our new President and Congress to reverse all that is an offense. Will He? Maybe, it may depend on what we do now with the opportunity the Lord has given us.

Either way, God is always in control. Whether this is the beginning of reversing the anti-God movement in this country or if this changes nothing at all, we have nothing to fear if we are on the Lord’s side. Whether the days ahead are much brighter or darkness regains control of the reigns, our God is still on His throne and nothing will happen without His permission.

We, as true Christians, just need to let our lives glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, share His Word with those who remain lost, and pray, pray, pray.
