The political scene unfolding before us is exposing the deep, underlying ungodly roots of this nation. Though there is certainly need for godly leadership, there is an even greater need in this country. I believe the level of corruption in this nation is beyond imagination. Our government is deeply rooted in the ungodly covenant bonds of political parties, vows to secret societies, and pandering to global agendas. These have become spiritual strangle-holds on this nation and until these bonds are broken, righteous laws won’t get any traction.
There should no longer be any doubt as to the underlying CONTROL and MANIPULATION at the root of our government (yes, probably Jezebel, Leviathan, and every other Baal spirit). THIS is what our prayers have been going after. Until these demonic strongholds are uprooted, there is no way for godly government to take hold. I don’t believe this election is simply about electing a conservative Christian who will enact righteous laws. Though they are obviously needed, there is an even greater urgency, and that is to not only confront those political powers, but to dismantle and displace them.
The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire. (Matthew 3:10 NIV)
I believe this is God’s purpose in this hour – to raise up leadership that is not afraid of these political spirits, but ready and willing to displace them. God is even using the front-runner in this election to address a spirit of OFFENSE – both in politics, and also in the Church. We must get beyond personality preferences and even “religious correctness” if we are to see the bigger picture of what God is doing. Our fight is not just against abortion, same-sex marriage, and radical Islam. It is a fight for the roots of this nation which have spawned all of these branches. Until we go to these roots, no President, Christian or not, will be able to uphold righteousness for the long-haul.
The Trump train is a prophetic picture of what God wants to do with this nation. God’s Spirit is going to come in like a flood – tsunami – runaway train – wrecking ball. Every religious spirit is going to be bowled over. People will get offended. The way this next awakening is going to come will not be packaged the way we think. Pay attention. If you can look past the packaging and the rhetoric, even the media is prophesying. God’s got this. He can’t be stopped. The question is – will we recognize it and welcome it?
