Apparently, some of our subscribers are having difficulty understanding what we are doing. We are providing the prophetic consequences of the articles we supply. At the bottom of each article is a scriptural reference or Spirit of Prophecy statement that usually gives a completely different viewpoint to the article presented, a prophetic viewpoint, that reveals the danger of the event or holding that position or idea. I don’t write the articles. I simply repost them to alert God’s people to the dangers of these things. I do not advocate one political side or the other. Mr. Trump is President right now, and America is a rather divisive environment. So, articles that have prophetic significance and that impinge on politics are going to include him more often. The next president will do prophetic things too and will then be involved in our briefings like previous presidents, to the dismay of some who like or dislike him or her. We will faithfully report them as we have always done.
I pick articles from public sources to republish with prophetic commentary that have prophetic significance whatever the viewpoint. Even if the reader doesn’t read the article, they should just read the comment from the inspired source, and they can see this point. Also read the disclaimer at the very bottom of the post.
The problem is that so many of our people are so (wrongly) politically engaged that it is hard for them to separate their emotions or perspective and see the prophetic point. Note again: we copy and paste prophetically significant articles and then link them to prophecy. If that is not understood by our readers, they will miss out on the spiritual significance of the point being made.
For instance, I posted an article about President Trump entitled “Here’s Proof Trump is Trying to Lead America back to God.” It received many reactions, some recognizing the sobering times in which we live, and some upset and even angry at me for posting such an article because it seemed to be advocating that readers vote for Mr. Trump. It was, but that was not why I posted it. It was posted for reasons that maybe were not clear to some. I may be too trusting that those who read our briefings are familiar with the prophetic implications that surround them. But leading “America back to God” is a very significant issue from a prophetic point of view. When major disasters hit that are viewed as punishment for turning away from God, America will be ready to form the mark of the beast in an effort to force America and Americans back to God. President Trump, whether you admire him or despise him is laying that groundwork with his evangelical buddies.
The article itself is NOT a good sign, prophetically speaking. If President Trump is reelected, he becomes a “lame duck” president and can do what he wants to a large extent. He rules by executive order or decree which is the way the prophetic writings characterize the method of enforcing the mark of the beast. This could lead us right to the final crisis, largely because of his close association with evangelicals. The message that should be the takeaway from that Prophetic Intelligence Briefing should be to prepare for the end-time crisis and be praying A LOT for God’s will to be done, whatever that is. Those still living in cities should be especially concerned, given that cities are the target of Satan’s malice and God’s wrath.
I have been faithful to my calling to present prophetically important events and material. I have long stood against voting in elections for parties or people (not against voting on moral issues) and repeatedly warned that those that do “are partakers with them of the sins which they commit while in office.” (See Fundamentals of Christian Education, page 475)
I am concerned about God’s people, that they stay out of politics even with their emotions, because their salvation is at stake. Maybe that is too much to ask of human beings, but Satan is trying to distract us from the issues in the great controversy. So, we need Divine help to navigate these divisive times and keep our spiritual eyesight clear as crystal.
“God would have us study the events that are taking place around us, and compare them with the predictions of his word, in order that we may understand that we are living in the last days. We want our Bibles, and we want to know what is written therein. The diligent student of prophecy will be rewarded with clear revelations of truth, for Jesus said, ‘Thy word is truth.’” Signs of the Times, October 1, 1894
Please view these briefings as harbingers of the coming of the Lord, not political statements. That’s what they are designed to be. They are published so God’s people will be sensitive to His leading, not to embroil them in political debates.
God’s peace to all,
