I have stayed out of the election debate, not because of my own political preference, but to try and see what the Lord may be doing. Trump brought sovereignty to Israel and an ever-growing peace to the Middle East. He shunned Iran, Turkey, Russia, and mocked Germany. If viewed through the lens of the Bible, he has begun the process of fulfilling some of the prerequisites of Ezekiel 38. 7 “Prepare yourself and be ready, you and all your companies that are gathered about you; and be a guard for them. 8 After many days you will be visited. In the latter years you will come into the land of those brought back from the sword and gathered from many people on the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate; they were brought out of the nations, and now all of them dwell safely. 9 You will ascend, coming like a storm, covering the land like a cloud, you and all your troops and many peoples with you 10 ‘Thus says the Lord God: “On that day it shall come to pass that thoughts will arise in your mind, and you will make an evil plan: 11 You will say, ‘I will go up against a land of unwalled villages; I will go to a peaceful people, who dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates’—12 to take plunder and to take booty, to stretch out your hand against the waste places that are again inhabited, and against a people gathered from the nations, who have acquired livestock and goods, who dwell in the midst of the land.
Now, along comes Biden, who will align with the confederates of the Ezekiel 38 Prophecy. He is intent on normalizing relations with Iran, Turkey, Russia, the EU, especially Germany, and China. Is this all about Setting the Stage for Armageddon, The Gog/Magog scenario that will usher in the Antichrist and move us 7 years closer to the return of Messiah?
As a Biblical contextualist, I must take a Biblical Worldview of the events unfolding right before our very eyes. Stolen election or not, God’s plans must be fulfilled and if that is to move us closer to the return of Messiah for the redemption of Israel and ultimately the binding of satan for 1,000 years then in the words of Messiah, “Not my will be done, let YOUR will be done.”
God’s plan is to defeat the evil that grips the entire world. That can only be done through the fulfillment of a series of events prophesied in Scripture. If this is a part of that plan, then I am all for His plan, even if goes against everything I might want in the natural. In this season we must ask ourselves WHY is this happening and how does this align with God’s plan. This is the only way I can make sense of all the craziness associated with this election.
