Biblical commentary on the 2016 election

I sought the Lord, and he answered me. – Psalm 34:4a

Millions of Americans have earnestly prayed for years about the fate of their nation. Around them, their society has crumbled.

Just at the last moment, when the Left was preparing to crown itself as America’s overlord forever, God sent a man named Donald Trump to save our country.

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are my ways your ways,” declares the Lord. – Isaiah 59:9

He was an unlikely person in which God could accomplish His will: divorced, not particularly religious, and not always a practitioner of ethical business dealings. Many Christians rejected him. But many more Christians did not.

The Christians who rejected Trump said he was rude, ungentlemanly, brash, and unrepentant. The Christians who accepted Trump knew he had a servant’s heart for his fellow citizens. They also knew he was a fighter, and would protect them from the twin threat of Leftism and Islam. They knew that God does not pay attention to outward appearances, but looks instead on the heart.

But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. – Isaiah 40:31

Since Trump announced his candidacy, he has defied every possible odd. For the first time in fifty years, the Overton window has shifted rightwards. The Right is on the offensive, and the Left is in panicked retreat. All around the country and the world, nationalists and patriots are rallying around their God-given heritage. They are preparing to take back control of their nations in a way that seemed impossible but a year ago.

Psalm 2. Quare fremuerunt.

1 Why do the nations rage

and the peoples plot in vain?

The kings of the earth set themselves,

and the rulers take counsel together,

against the Lord and against his Anointed, saying,

“Let us burst their bonds apart

and cast away their cords from us.”

He who sits in the heavens laughs;

the Lord holds them in derision.

Is Trump our Messiah? No. He is a fallible human being. But the fact that every evil power on earth has united against him – and have failed spectacularly in doing so – shows that God is standing on Trump’s side, and on the side of his supporters.

Trump is opposed by big business, the big banks, the warmongering neocons, nearly all of the media, the corrupt religious and political establishments, and the international Left. Yet he is poised to take the helm of the most powerful nation on earth.

God will not be mocked, and the hundreds of millions that have been poured into the Clinton campaign by the likes of George Soros are meaningless. The plans of men are like straw compared to the plans of God.

Then he will speak to them in his wrath,

and terrify them in his fury, saying,

“As for me, I have set my King

on Zion, my holy hill.”

I will tell of the decree:

The Lord said to me, “You are my Son;

today I have begotten you.

Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage,

and the ends of the earth your possession.

You shall break them with a rod of iron

and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.”

10  Now therefore, O kings, be wise;

be warned, O rulers of the earth.

11 Serve the Lord with fear,

and rejoice with trembling.

12 Kiss the Son,

lest he be angry, and you perish in the way,

for his wrath is quickly kindled.

Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

The wicked rulers of the world who refuse to acknowledge the kingship of Christ and His divine order will be punished with death, if not in this life than the next. Those who oppose what God demands will suffer and be cast out. Those who respect God and His precepts will flourish, just as Trump has flourished.

20 Now Herod was angry with the people of Tyre and Sidon, and they came to him with one accord, and having persuaded Blastus, the king’s chamberlain, they asked for peace, because their country depended on the king’s country for food. 21 On an appointed day Herod put on his royal robes, took his seat upon the throne, and delivered an oration to them. 22 And the people were shouting, “The voice of a god, and not of a man!” 23 Immediately an angel of the Lord struck him down, because he did not give God the glory, and he was eaten by worms and breathed his last. – Acts 12:20-23

Hillary Clinton is undoubtedly one of the most evil women in America today. After a career filled with horrific injustices, she was anointed by her corrupt party establishment to assume the most powerful office in the world, the Presidency of the United States. Her nomination was perhaps the most blatant political scandal in the history of our country.

Unlike supporters of Trump, who recognize that he is but a mere human being whom God is using to accomplish His will, followers of Clinton view her as an uber-woman, who will finally deliver the Western world from the last grasp of traditional civilization and usher in the eschaton. If she were to assume the Presidency, she would be hailed as a goddess.

Clinton’s wickedness can only go so far, however. Her presumption has gotten the better of her. God has sent Trump to stop her from assuming the Presidency, and has struck down Clinton herself with a terrible and frightening disease. Assuming Trump wins the Presidency, Clinton’s humiliation will be utter and complete. She will die in disgrace, and will burn in Hell with her husband if she does not repent of her crimes.

For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.” – 1 Corinthians 1:19

Every single prominent pundit – with the exception of Ann Coulter – was utterly wrong about the rise of Trump. The so-called ‘intellectual class’ haughtily dismissed him and his supporters as low-IQ ‘buffoons.’

Trump supporters have been called Trumpsters, Trumptards, Trumpkins, and Trumpanzees – not to mention racists, xenophobes, Islamophobes, and un-Christian. This name-calling has been done not merely by the Left, but by the institutional Right as well.

The sheer hatred and arrogance that many of the conservative elite feel towards their constituents is incredible. Because of this, their influence has rapidly waned. In one year, for instance, the prideful National Review has gone from being the voice of the Right to an irrelevancy desperate for cash.

Only those intellectuals who have been humble enough to respect their fellow citizens in this election will have any future influence on American public life. These individuals, furthermore, have been persecuted for their support for Trump. The National Review staff, on the other hand, has been persecuted by no one. They will be forgotten as meaningless sycophants.

If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. – John 15:18

Nationalists are despised by the entire world. The elite and popular consensus is that supporting nationalism is a Bad Thing.

A vote for Trump is a vote for nationalism and our Godly heritage, and is a vote against the wicked Establishment. For this reason we are hated.

What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops. – Matthew 10:2

The Trump campaign has been shocking, insofar as the astounding depth of corruption and wickedness of our elite have been revealed. Bill Clinton’s rape sprees, the untruth about the Iraq War, the blatant lies of the media, and the evil lives of those who have been Trump’s opposition are now ‘fair game.’ Nothing is off the table. Everything has been revealed.

Whether or not Trump himself has directly targeted a person or entity because of its corruption is beside the point. God has used Trump in order to shed light on the pervasive darkness that envelopes the leaders of our country. If Trump wins, justice will swiftly come to those who have oppressed, lied, and destroyed.

And you shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof. – Leviticus 25:10

A Trump victory in 2016 would mark fifty years from the time cultural Marxists mentally enslaved the West. Such a victory would indeed give us true liberty, and allow our civilization to once again accept Divine precepts.

Then he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of hosts.” – Zechariah 4:6

Through this entire electoral process, Americans must remember that despite his greatness, Trump is not a god himself. He has only been able to make it as far as he has through God’s grace – and for that matter, so have we. If Trump is victorious, we must remember to give thanks to God for His great mercy on our country and civilization this one last time.

And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it… – Ezekiel 22:30

While God found no one to protect the lost Kingdom of Judah, this time around, however, the situation is different. God has found Donald Trump to stand in the gap and build a wall. For this, we should be eternally thankful.
