Is Trump God’s Answer
This coming election is one that faces us to make a choice that is not as clear cut as I would personally like. I know I can’t support any of the democrats who are running, their path leads away from God and that is not the direction that I want to go.
I honestly like the way Mr. Trump is willing to stand for what he believes no matter what and that he really seems to want to make this country great again. But I have questions as to what his idea of great is. I am not so sure that it is the same as mine! That being said, I would like to caution people to take Glen Beck and all Mr. Trump’s detractors with a very large grain of salt. Their vitriol seems very disturbing. Is there an agenda we don’t know? What is the reason for this seeming hatred? Mr. Beck is very good at telling us he listens when God talks to him but is he putting his faith in God? Or is he, perhaps, putting his will first?
Again, that being said, I am not sure Mr. Trump is the right choice!! I like Mr. Cruz and Mrs.Fiorini as well as Mr. Rubio to a certain degree. I know God uses imperfect people to lead the way and sometimes chooses one most would consider the fool.
“1 Samuel 8New International Version (NIV)
Israel Asks for a King
8 When Samuel grew old, he appointed his sons as Israel’s leaders.[a] 2 The name of his firstborn was Joel and the name of his second was Abijah, and they served at Beersheba. 3 But his sons did not follow his ways. They turned aside after dishonest gain and accepted bribes and perverted justice.
4 So all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah. 5 They said to him, “You are old, and your sons do not follow your ways; now appoint a king to lead[b] us, such as all the other nations have.”
6 But when they said, “Give us a king to lead us,” this displeased Samuel; so he prayed to the Lord. 7 And the Lord told him: “Listen to all that the people are saying to you; it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me as their king. 8 As they have done from the day I brought them up out of Egypt until this day, forsaking me and serving other gods, so they are doing to you. 9 Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will claim as his rights.”
10 Samuel told all the words of the Lord to the people who were asking him for a king. 11 He said, “This is what the king who will reign over you will claim as his rights: He will take your sons and make them serve with his chariots and horses, and they will run in front of his chariots. 12 Some he will assign to be commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and others to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and still others to make weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. 13 He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. 14 He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive groves and give them to his attendants. 15 He will take a tenth of your grain and of your vintage and give it to his officials and attendants. 16 Your male and female servants and the best of your cattle[c] and donkeys he will take for his own use. 17 He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his slaves. 18 When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, but the Lord will not answer you in that day.”
