Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, where for forty days he was tempted by the devil. He ate nothing during those days, and at the end of them he was hungry. The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread.” Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone.’” The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world.And he said to him, “I will give you all their authority and splendor; it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. If you worship me, it will all be yours.” Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.’ The devil led him to Jerusalem and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down from here. For it is written: “ ‘He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’” Jesus answered, “It is said: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’” When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time. Luke 4:1-13 NIV
In order to resist the temptation served up by the devil, we have to be full of Holy Spirit, with a heart to hear and obey Him, rather than the dictates of our flesh.
Now, all who have eyes and are being led by Holy Spirit can see through the devil’s lies and all of the promises made are crumbling for all the world to see.
God knows our hearts and our motivations. Since He is love, He abhors hate-mongering and fear-mongering and we know–with all the hate demonstrated in this country, that it was the devil who offered the temptation of change through a narcissistic, fear-mongering demon and those who didn’t have the spiritual discernment to see it, fell for the smooth talking snake-oil salesman.
But of course there was a specific group targeted to engage their loyalty–the low-educated and the ill-informed–the gullible and it worked. Now, though their hatred of all people who don’t look like them was their driving force, they are seeing and will see even more why they were misled.
The media became a pawn in the game of the enemy and he played them like a finely tuned fiddle. Free coverage–never spending his money because that’s not his style.
The tax cuts won’t help anyone who isn’t rich. Another lie perpetuated by the enemy.
The wall won’t be built unless the haters volunteer their time to build it and that will be the extent of the jobs provided–manual labor–for their savior knows they don’t have the educational ability to do anything beyond that. How do we know? He held a baby in his hands and declared, “he looks like a construction worker,” pronouncing the expectation as though that’s all the baby can ever hope for.
And for those poor folks who think didn’t have healthcare before the Affordable Care Act, they’ll be back to square one because no one has a better plan to put in its place.
I’ve concluded because of what The Lord is showing me that buyer’s remorse is rising faster than flood waters and the regret is already real and he has not even been sworn into office. His lawyers are handling the 75 pending lawsuits while he’s avoiding any press coverage. And why is he not allowing the press to travel with him? He doesn’t want any of his true thoughts and conversations to expose him for the devil he really is. The dictator he plans to be.
And the biggest group who fell for the lies–the Evangelical group who was more concerned about party than country. I’m sure they are really proud of themselves for pushing the enemy down people’s throats. If people thought church attendance was bad, they will see–soon enough–the real decimation of trust betrayed. If the church lies to people because they believed the lie–how disappointed is God in those He trusted to hear and obey Him?
Based upon His Word, I can only conclude that they were not filled with Holy Spirit and therefore did not have the power to resist temptation–the temptation to “have authority over people with Supreme Court Appointments.” They forgot, the only authority over anyone’s life should be God, not people. But they didn’t trust God, to be God!
I will hear and obey and do all within my ability and in His strength to help turn the tide of hatred and bigotry and overt racism that now flows freely, unhinged because Americans elected a madman–who only wants to benefit himself.
So renew a right relationship with God and be filled to overflowing with His Spirit so you can see things through spiritual eyes and not allow the dictates of the flesh to blind you. My hope is in Jesus Christ and I will not be tempted by delusions of grandeur and having authority, not rightfully mine. I will continue to write and say what God is saying to my heart until He returns or I can no longer type.
