As we see the media engage in a 24/7 campaign to create a new reality, wherein Joe Biden is president, it is important for the faithful to resist the seduction. Donald Trump won the election on November 3rd, and may yet prevail to claim the presidency in 2021.
Let’s start with the proposition that Donald Trump did a superior job as president during his first term. And not simply on the pro-Life front: Economic growth, foreign policy, race relations and managing the Chinese Virus were all examples of incredible leadership. The president also deserves credit for running an incredible campaign against the highest odds and a frightening coalition of dark forces – from pretend Republicans like Cindy McCain to covert intelligence operatives to the corporate media and Big Pharma. The power and effectiveness of his campaign against such forces is beyond doubt given the fact that he helped add seats to the US House, and protected the Senate Republican majority. One cannot overlook the millions of voters he added to his totals over 2016.
And that campaign brings us to this critical observation: The future of the pro-Life movement, and the Republic itself, hangs on the outcome of the legal/political/spiritual battle in about 5 states. Between them, those 5 states control 63 electoral votes. And the cumulative margin between Trump and Biden – accepting for the moment the “official” results – is roughly 119,000 votes. That is 8/100 of a percent of the votes cast in America for president. Virtually all of them show a margin of less than ½ of a percentage point separating Biden and Trump.
It is astonishing to realize that so much hangs on such a razor thin margin.
And much – too much – is at stake. Obviously the lives of millions of preborn children are at risk if Joe Biden is able to shuck and jive his way into the White House. But there are millions of lives at risk across the globe – Taiwan, Israel, Korea, Central Europe will all be tragically impacted by a failure to secure Trump’s second term.
And, for that reason, it is impossible that we should surrender. We must continue to rattle the Gates of Heaven and seek the Lord’s intervention on behalf of those at deadly risk.
One cannot know how the Lord will respond or when He might intervene to rescue us from the blatant evil at work in this election. We can only be certain that He is at work.
That said, there is reason to believe that the Lord may be allowing some of this drama to play out for awhile in order to further expose that evil and those characters eagerly sabotaging Trump’s defense of Israel, religious liberty and pro-Life values. Indeed, this past week has offered many dark revelations about what a Biden Administration would look like. As Democrats celebrate their “victory”, we are reminded of these verses from Psalm 73:
“Therefore pride is their necklace; they clothe themselves with violence…the evil conceits of their minds know no limits. They scoff, and speak with malice; in their arrogance, they threaten oppression….When I tried to understand all this, it was oppressive to me till I entered the sanctuary of God; then I understood their final destiny.”
At this hour of national peril, we must stand strong and support the President’s bid to uproot the obvious corruption at work. He appreciates that the threat to our Republic goes far beyond the outcome of a single election or person.
Let us be strong and await the Lord’s deliverance. Join us in praying for the President, his family, and for the help he needs.
