A Psalm for President Trump

5 05 2020

Pray for President Trump

Psalm 11 is for President Trump in the days of the Covid 19 virus. Originally written by King David of Israel 3,000 years ago, please open your mind to see that it applies to our President today (and equally to Israel’s PM Netanyahu, and to all God-fearing people). I will go verse by verse with comments between verses.

1. I trust in YEHOVAH for protection. So why do you say to me, “Fly like a bird to the mountains for safety!

“Panic! The sky is falling. The virus is going to kill everybody. Run and hide for safety?” No! Trust in Yehovah God for protection.

2. The wicked are stringing their bows and fitting their arrows on the bowstrings. They shoot from the shadows at those whose hearts are right.

The enemies hide in darkness and shoot down truth, hiding behind these words: “anonymous, high official says, sources tell us, administration officials say, from a department source, many experts say, scientists say, insiders report, survey says, poll concludes, renown commentator wrote, my contacts say, allegedly.” Learn to recognize these words. They are words from the shadows.

3. The foundations of law and order have collapsed. What can the righteous do?”

We can do the most effective remedy…trust God. It is time to wake up, stand up, and speak up for the righteousness of the living God YEHOVAH and His Son Jesus, Yeshua ben Yehovah!

4. But YEHOVAH is in his holy Temple; YEHOVAH still rules from heaven. He watches everyone closely, examining every person on earth.

This is God’s safety promise. Some officials act like gods. Hitler started by tracing Jews in Nazi Germany: Churchgoers Must Register With the Government in Kansas City – May 1, 2020  Kansas City, Missouri, officials are now requiring every church to submit a list of members and attendees along with their names, addresses and telephone numbers to city officials for tracking and surveillance purposesUPDATE: KANSAS CITY MAYOR REVERSES ORDER

5. YEHOVAH examines both the righteous and the wicked. He hates those who love violence.

But you, my dear friends, must remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ said. They told you that in the last times there would be scoffers whose purpose in life is to satisfy their ungodly desires. These people are the ones who are creating divisions among you. They follow their natural instincts because they do not have God’s Spirit in them. Jude 17-19 NLT

6. He will rain down blazing coals and burning sulfur on the wicked, punishing them with scorching winds.

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. Galations 6:7

7. For the righteous YEHOVAH loves justice. The virtuous will see his face. 

…and they will tell it to the inhabitants of this land. They have heard that You, YEHOVAH, are among these people; that You, YEHOVAH, are seen face to face and Your cloud stands above them, and You go before them in a pillar of cloud by day and in a pillar of fire by night. Numbers 14:14

Pray for President Trump. Pray for Prime Minister Netanyahu. Pray for rain in Israel. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Why Phased Opening After Virus?

24 04 2020

Challis, IdLet’s take a more positive look at the phased re-opening of America. It is now time. President Trump has already released states to begin re-opening the economy. The virus is now manageable because of all the work done in less than two months. Also, it was vastly over hyped. If the original models of 2.2 million deaths had been correct, we should not re-open. But they were wrong by a factor of 30X more than the present prediction of 61,000 deaths. Still, why not open everything all at once? Perhaps it is more appropriate than you think. Perhaps this is exposing the evil intent of the “Haman spirit.” What if there is hidden wisdom in the phased plan?

President Trump released the governors to open on their own individual terms. Allow me to explain why this is critical wisdom and courageous leadership. His critics did not expect him to let the governors decide.

When President Trump gave the okay to begin with phased guidelines, it was wisdom. It  is already clear that blue state governors are stretching the phases out. They may be sincerely cautious, but it is also a political calculation. They believe they will have a better chance to defeat Trump in the election if the economy is hurting. The red states are moving faster. Since the people all over the country want to open, they will have growing frustration with the slow roll-out. Our state of North Carolina is an example of a Democrat prolonging the timeline. This is a swing state and frustration among the people will likely cost him the election.

Why am I spending my blog on this topic? I believe tough times require courage and wisdom. That is my prayer for all of our leaders at every level. Let’s take a deeper look at Joshua. Our country was built on faith and courage. We do cower before any enemy, including this “invisible enemy.” It is time to rise up with faith in God and the courage to face this enemy moving forward, not in retreat. Here are our marching orders!

After the death of Moses the servant of Yehovah, it came to pass that Yehovah spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ assistant, saying:“Moses My servant is dead. Now therefore, arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them—the children of Israel. Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the River Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your territory. No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and of good courage, for to this people you shall divide as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for Yehovah your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:1-9

Pray for America and pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Rain is falling in Israel!
