I received an email recently from a reader of my articles. He asked some questions which I do consider to be important. I asked him if I could post excerpts of his email in an article, and he gave me permission to do so.
From the email:
“I need your thoughts on a topic that I pray about and God’s answers have been troubling me lately. It is about President Trump and the Congress, and the special elections that are taking place and the big elections coming in November. I prayed hard for months for him to be elected and was so joyous when God heard our collective prayers. He’s sticking to his agenda pretty well and I pray for him and Mike Pence every day to be safe and successful with their agenda, and to get saved if they are not.
I pray also for all these Congressional special elections and the upcoming November ones. I pray for the Republicans to win and maintain their majorities. They are the only hope we have anymore as the Democrat party is totally controlled by Satan now. There is no hope of anything God-honoring coming out of that party. I’m sad that the Republican Party is very ‘Laodicean’ and it needs a lot of new members that are God-fearing and Bible-believing. I pray for that. I don’t want the Democrats to take over the House or Senate because that will ruin Donald’s efforts and we’ll be in the reverse situation that we were in with Obama in his second term. I believed that God put Donald in there to be effective for at least four years.
But with the Democrat sweep of almost everything in the Virginia state elections (where I live) last November, the Roy Moore disaster in Alabama and now the failure in a Republican district in PA, I am troubled that the Democrats will take back one or both houses in November. There is so much insanity and deception going on in our country, as you remind us, that I wonder if our Heavenly Father does not want me to be focused on this anymore.
The President is hated by most of Washington, including many Republicans, and I see and hear it every day as I work there. The Washington Post is the bible to so many of the people here. I’m really distraught now after all these setbacks since Donald’s election. The Lord has not been answering my prayers. I’m sure there are many in the country who are like-minded with me and spend a great deal of their prayer time focusing on these elections. And I’m sure they’re as disappointed in these results as I am. And maybe wondering what to do now like I am.
I heard J Vernon McGee say we are not to be focused on cleaning up the town or creating good government. I don’t really like to hear that as I think that is part of our mission to be salt and light. But maybe I’m putting too much emphasis on it. And God is telling me to let it go or back off on it with all of these dismal results.
I’m left to wonder why God put Donald in there if he only gave him two years to accomplish anything. He accomplished a lot for sure including the American embassy move to Jerusalem. I didn’t want Donald and the Republican Party to just hold Satan at his line of progression where he was stopped in Nov 2016. I want them to roll back a lot of Satan’s progress and restore some of what we’ve lost before his time ends and the next Obama and that party inevitably take control again.
I know this is just a brief respite from the scourge of evil that has overtaken us, and I am ever thankful for that. But I was hoping it would last for at least four years and even eight years, if the Lord tarries and He is willing to let Donald continue into a second term. Now it seems like it will only last two years. I’m starting to wonder why God even bothered if this was all we were going to get!
So please give me your thoughts on how much emphasis I should place on this in my prayer life. Why is God allowing evil to take back over again so quickly? How are you approaching this area since Donald was elected?”
As I was reading this brother’s email, I remembered an experience that my husband and I had with a pastor back in 2012. We had already suffered through 4 years of Obama and quite honestly, I was frantic, thinking that we could possibly be looking at 4 more years of him. I remember crying out to the Lord “Why?? Why is this EVIL man ruling over us…….why, Lord?”
We made an appointment to meet with our pastor. After we entered his office, he said to me “I know exactly who is going to win the 2012 Presidential election!” I looked at him and said “With all due respect, pastor, how can you possibly know for sure who will win?”
I will never forget his response to me: “The man who will win is whomever the Lord allows to win!”
I was conflicted with his response. But as I thought about it more and more – it made complete sense to me. I had allowed myself to become panicked about something over which I had no control, except for praying and casting my own vote.
The Dishonest Media
Do you remember the so-called polls which were coming out of the MSM about the 2016 Presidential elections? We were told that Hillary Clinton had it in the bag. No chance for Donald Trump – nope – not even a prayer.
My husband and I had been praying fervently for Trump to beat Clinton, although during the primaries, we had been supporting Ted Cruz. On the night of the election, my husband would not even watch the outcome of votes from various States. He admitted to me that he didn’t think that Trump had a chance.
I still watched, and as I saw the miracle unfolding, I felt like a school girl watching my school’s team obliterate the opposition! I kept saying to Tim “But sweetie – you HAVE to see what is happening!” He still didn’t want to watch. I did understand his feelings. We had been so depressed over the Obama wins. He just didn’t want to get excited just to be let down once again.
But then I looked at my husband and I said “HE WON!” Tim looked up ever so slowly and saw that Trump had indeed beaten Clinton. He was speechless and very happy – but I could see that look of “This is too good to be true” on his face.
A President for Such a Time as This
I know that the Lord made the Trump win happen. I thought back to our pastor’s words, and they rang so true in my heart. I thought about the book of Esther and how she had been placed by the Lord as the Persian Queen to save her people from annihilation by the evil Haman.
Obama’s hatred of Israel was not something he hid. He hated PM Netanyahu and even sent a group of henchmen to Israel to attempt to thwart a victory for Bibi. It back fired and Bibi prevailed. Whenever I read about the so-called Russian involvement in our election, I really have to laugh. The liberals are such hypocrites!
Jerusalem and our Embassy
President Trump, right from the beginning of his presidency, made it so clear that he was a polar opposite of what we had experienced in Barack Obama. He spoke at the March for Life – I’m pretty sure that he is the only president who ever did that.
Unfortunately, he did not “drain the swamp” as he promised he would do. We see now that it is a monumental task to do this, when Obama had 8 years in which he filled our government with radical Islamists, Socialists and Communists – not to mention Globalists.
But Trump’s decision to declare to the world that Jerusalem is the undivided Capital of Israel; and his promise to move our embassy to Jerusalem, proved to the entire world that this was a president who truly loved Israel! We who love the Lord are enthralled with his decision about Israel – the Leftist liberals – well, not so much. They loathe this president and everything for which he stands. Many Republicans do as well.
Trump Stopped the NWO movement in its tracks
The liberal Democrats – shall we just cut to the chaste and call them what they are – Communists – truly thought that Clinton would win and the U.N. and Illuminati would be that much closer to the One World Government of which they dream.
God had other ideas. But prophecy students know that eventually the NWO will come to fruition and usher in the man of sin – Antichrist. Trump’s election brought a reprieve – Geopolitically and Spiritually.
Brethren, we should be using this time to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the lost. If Clinton had prevailed, only the Lord knows if we (Christians) would have been silenced and imprisoned. Clinton’s hatred of Christians was just as vehement as Obama’s. Remember when the Left booed the God of the Universe at a DNC? Hard to forget that.
Back to our brother’s email and questions
How are we to pray for upcoming elections as we watch the Democrats slowly take back that which they lost? Why does God seem to not answer prayers when His people cry out to Him? We know that God always answers the prayers of His saints with Yes, No or wait.
Kingdom Now and Dominionism
There is a false movement (I am not passing judgment on the salvation of these people) but they have bought into a lie which says that we (the church) need to clean up the governments; making sure that our elected officials are believers before our Lord will return.
When did Jesus ever say that He would not return until the governments of the world were filled with believers? I don’t see that in Scripture.
The brother who wrote the email to me is so sincere in being troubled by what he is seeing happening with the Democrats, and also seeing that Trump has not yet fulfilled all of his promises. I am wondering how many of our brethren are feeling a sense of panic right now.
I do not believe that is the will of God for His people.
Do you realize that God allowed the “reign” of Barack Obama to fulfill His prophetic Word? The Arab Spring, which was orchestrated by Obama and Clinton, and bankrolled by George Soros, was used by God to set up so much of Bible Prophecy. Think Damascus.…
God is Sovereign
I had a Sunday School teacher who loved to say “God is God, and I am not.” Aren’t His ways so much higher than ours? He spoke this Universe into existence and created each of us. Is there anything that we can really do to change the course of history. It is History, is it not?
But we are told to pray for our leaders and we must. We should pray for their salvation and for their safety and that God would use them in mighty ways.
I always find peace in ending my prayers with “According to Your will Lord.”
Brethren, if we see evil rearing it’s ugly head in the coming months and years – cry out to God. He desires our prayers.
Question: “How and why should we pray for our leaders?”
So how should we pray for our leaders? First, if we are uncertain that they know Jesus, we should pray for their salvation. But whether or not our leaders are Christians, we should pray that God will guide them as they guide us. We should pray that they be wise and discerning and surrounded by helpful advisors. We know that God has placed our leaders in authority over us (Romans 13:1), and we can ask Him to use them as He will. We should also pray for their protection. When praying for pastors or ministry leaders, we can pray for them to have strength in the midst of spiritual warfare and to remain encouraged in the Lord. We can pray for their families, who often feel scrutinized and bear an extra load.
Briefly stated, we should mention our leaders before God in prayer and ask Him to have His way in their hearts, to support those around them, and to use their leadership to benefit their followers. – source
And then leave it with God.

Geri, I agree we are told to pray for our leaders as the Bible says. Check out this Bible Verse. Psalm 115:3 But our God is in heaven;
He does whatever He pleases. Shouldn’t our response be this not My will, but Yours, be done.” It’s from Luke 22:42 can we say that? The Rapture is so close.
Sure by the same virtue we didn’t see Christ so concern about the Roman rule. He didn’t even address it except to mention He was not of this world. I take issue with some of the email….Yes, I voted for Trump, but I don’t God in all of this anymore than any other president. And yes, I see the far left taking this country away from the people. This is not to say that all who are leftist are opposing God. Many are also Christians. This is all tricky and we need, just as you said to appeal directly to God for Him to steer whoever is in power: again, just as the Romans were. He could have changed it in a heartbeat, but he did not. There is a reason and one of which we are not capable of understanding. In the end, I trust Him no matter who is there one way or another. Our call and commission is to make disciples.
Pingback: President Trump, the Democrats, Satan and the Future of America – Living His Word
Geri the media is reporting the Austin package bomber was a Christian why would a Christian do that a real Born Again Christian wouldn’t do that We are told to love our enemies.
because they define Christian almost the same as citizen born in a Christian country – in the sense that he’s not islamic and not thought to be Hindu or some other religion, so ergo he’s Christian. I agree with you that if someone professes to be a servant of Messiah, and seeking to do His will, they wouldn’t do that. But not all who say, “Lord, Lord …” are truly His. Especially seeing as even the truths of scripture have been twisted, or watered down, or misinterpreted for decades now, due to the Laodicean mentality prevalent. Actually I am reminded of what I”ve posted in my blog from Jeremiah 7 & 10. YHWH tells Jeremiah that when He brought their forefathers out of Egypt He didn’t command them regarding matters of burnt offerings or sacrifices – “But I commanded them this thing, saying, Obey My voice and I will be your Elohim, and you shall be My people. Also walk in all the ways I’ve commanded you, so that all may be well wityh you”. He goes onto say that they didn’t listen nor bow their ear, but walked in their own plans, in the stubbornness of their hearts and went backward not forward. (Jer.7:23-24)
Jeremiah replies in 10:8 “but they are all together foolish and stupid; their tree is an instruction of vanities”. YHWH then says in 10:21: “For the pastors have become stupid, they have not sought YAHWEH . Therefore they shall not be blessed, and all their flock shall be scattered.”. What would He say to this generation today?
He would say depart from me I never knew you. am I correct? It doesn’t help the the fact that many listen to Joel Osteen and his false teachings and we try and show them the truth and the don’t want to listen. We are the Remnant Church.
see my second comment
Saw you comment. I want to read the Word more less of the flesh.
the versions I use the most of all mine, are the Hebraic Roots Bible – A Literal Translation for portability, but for serious study I use another painstakingly translated from Hebrew / Aramaic namely, the Alef Tav Cepher – which also contains 87 books not 66, as well as Acts 29, Psalms 151-155, and the eth (Hebrew letters juxtaposed alef tav) wherever they occur in the Hebrew.
Ok I use the NKJV for personal use the only Hebrew word I know is Shalom.
those versions are in English but translated exactly and directly from Hebrew following the rules of Hebrew (not Greek) exegesis
It seems like everyone is calling themselve Christian should we use Born Again Believer or Follower of Jesus instead because of that just wondering.
I prefer “sons of the Most High God – El Elyon- and servants of Yeshua Ha Mashiach (Jesus the Christ / Messiah / Anointed One)
I like that. I’m not good at reading the Word everyday but I do ask Him to help me.
Ask the Holy Spirit, as His mission is to lead us into all truth as Yeshua said so that we’d have no need that any man should teach us. Yes there’s a teacher ministry, but as Paul commended the Bereans, it’s the listeners’ job to search the scriptures daily to see if what they’re being taught conforms to the Truth of scripture
Amen as the Word says. 1 John 4 New King James Version (NKJV)
4 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 3 and every spirit that does not confess that[a] Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.
4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 5 They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. 6 We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
you better believe the spirit of error is working overtime today
I know that when hear something on Biblical I say no no no it’s this example last week a Pastor said that Jesus being the Only Way is insanity NO it’s the truth Jesus is the Only Way.
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
John 14:6 NKJV
a li’l aside here: the word ruach means “spirit, breath, wind” which adds some interesting perspective to both Genesis 1 & Acts 2. (Gen1:2 the ruach (spirit of GOD0 moved upon the waters as a ruach (wind) and YHWH breathed (ruach = breath) into Adam and he became a living sould. In Acts 2 the Holy Spirit (Ruach Ha Qodesh) descended to the upper room as a mighty rushing wind (God-breathed)
Yes I have heard that word before I know I was indewlt with the Holy Spirit after I was Born Again in 2015. It is by the Grace of God that He gives us breath and wakes us every morning.
2 Timothy 3:16 New King James Version (NKJV)
16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,
inspiration by His Spirit (but remember the “SPIRE” part of inspiration could relate to breath as breath is reSPIRation
Like when medics use Respiration on someone.
so we could say that Jesus used respiration on use when we were dead in sin to make us alive by His Spirit right or am I wrong.
He did breath on the disciples and said receive the Holy Spirit (breath)
Amen He did the same thing to us.
but to them it was His doing so while still incarnate before ascension to heaven – i.e. he was physically with them 🙂
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.”
John 14:26 NKJV
that’s what I referred to earlier in my previous comment – no need for any man to teach etc
Amen same like when Biblical Pastor preach on Sunday it’s God spreaking to us through them right as we read the Word during the sermon.
17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
Do you think that those who listen to Joel Osteen are under the judgement of God because they want what Joel wants and it’s not God or are they just decieved?
Well I don’t profess to have a revelation of such from El Elyon Himself, nor Adonai Yeshua, but I do believe that John 3 tells us He’s not willing that any should perish and in other places He says that He does extend the grace period for judgment to give more people time to repent. However there comes a time when He does send judgment because it seems to be the only way to get people’s attention – in times of disaster, or trouble. That’s why Paul wrote in 1 Cor.10 that believers should be studying the scriptures paying attention to what is written in the Tanakh (what some call Old Testament) re the Israelites of old, and Hid dealings with them – because they were written for our instruction upon whom the ends of the world are come so that we don’t repeat their sins and mistakes.
Geri – as a Canuck, I’m not maybe qualified to comment on your situation in US, especially seeing as the people here are just as stupid and elected a cross between Mr. Dressup and Krusty the clown for PM (I never liked his dad, Pierre, but for different reasons that I don’t like him). I only want to say, that if anything the scriptures teach that there is no man made (i.e. political) solution to what ails the world. The solution was provided when YHWH sent His Yachid, (beloved, uniquely begotten Son) per John 3:16,17. As He also told Jeremiah a new heart was needed – that only happens when anyone takes advantage of His proffered solution and repents, submits to His Lordship, and seeks daily to grow in intimacy of relationship with ELOHIYM ( because it’s a word of plurality, I use it to signify the Trinity). It involves taking up one’s cross daily as well and putting to death the deeds of the flesh. Unfortunately these topics aren’t taught much anymore – along with eschatology, sanctification, holiness before the Lord, and how to see Paul’s prayer of Ephesians 1:17-23 come to fruition in one’s life. So now we have lots of pew warmers, ill-equipped to pull down the enemy’s strongholds, wage war in the spirit per Ephesians 6, being spoon fed pablum of a feel good and / or cheap grace gospel.
Before we embark on tearing down strongholds in the natural realm we need to be in tune with Yeshua via the Holy Spirit (Ruach Ha Qodesh) to be used to win in the realm of spirit if we want to see real results in the natural
Dear Geri, I so agree with your article. I ,too pray everyday for our President and VP. I do not worry about the things being passed or what will happen. I leave that for the Lord. He says in His word Proverbs 21:1-2 says 1The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will.
2Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts.
I trust what the Lord says I pray for the Peace of Jerusalem. I pray for God’s will to be done during this time. I believe with all my heart that the time is nearing that the great falling away is happening and all I can do is pray with this dear brother for him to realize God is in control of all. No matter what the future holds. Continue to pray as he is, but do not fear and worry take control. Do what he can but do not be fearful. We are not given a spirit of fear. God bless you for posting this. I think a lot more Christians need to see they are not alone.
Thank you, Geri,…I needed this commentary, today. May God be with you💕.
