Supernatural Wrestling Match

While thinking on a new book, a Rapture Ready news item entered the process. The story represents the heart of end times matters that continue to occupy much air and cable time, as well as paper and electronic print in reporting these days.

That is, the basic subject of the story is covered extensively by secular journalists during every news cycle. The prophetic or end times element within the story is covered only by those such as yours truly in forums such as the Rapture Ready web site, some Christian TV and radio stations and networks, and through books.

One of the most recognized names within Christian circles was involved in making an observation that piqued my interest while thinking on the new book. The observation he made resides at the center of that gestating book idea.

Evangelist Franklin Graham suggested the resistance President Donald Trump has faced since taking office could be “demonic” in origin.

Graham made the assertion while appearing as a guest on “The Eric Metaxas Radio Show” in a segment posted online on Thursday.

“It’s a very bizarre situation to be living in a country where some people seem to exist to undermine the president of the United States,” Metaxas said. “It’s just a bizarre time for most Americans.”

“Well, I believe it’s almost a demonic power that is trying–” Graham began to respond when Metaxas interjected, “I would disagree.”…

“It’s not almost demonic. You know and I know that at the heart it’s a spiritual battle,” the talk show host said…

Graham went on to say that this opposition is hate filled without seeming cause. President Donald J. Trump has done more to help Americans in under 3 years in office than presidents of the recent past have done with 2 full terms each. He cited the administration’s strides in bringing back jobs and improving the economy in general. Both Graham and the host of the program agreed the resistance this president continues to receive is demonic in origin.

Although I didn’t see in the story the Biblical scripture that confirmed for them this conviction, it was easy to deduce that the underlying scriptural text was likely the following.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Eph. 6: 12)

Certainly, the 2016 presidential election seemed to unleash the hounds of hell against not only the new president, but against all things godly. The very foundation of America, based in large part on Judeo-Christian precepts by the founding fathers, continues to come under attack.

It was a long process since well before that election that lay the groundwork for what we see happening with all this madness today.

The public educational system in the United States has been under assault since the 1950s and even before. Even the private institutions of higher learning fell victim to the demonic influences. Harvard, for example, founded as a Christian school and given its name in honor of a Christian educator, John Harvard, succumbed to the humanist lies from the pit.

I, myself, can remember sitting in a sophomore political science class at university and hearing a smooth, suave, Marxist professor laud communist regimes and lie about America’s founding as being evil.

Today’s youth are largely uneducated as to truth in most every discipline. They have been corrupted and co-opted by the hounds of hell who continue to drive the nation –and the world, for that matter—toward being receptive to Antichrist when he vaults upon his globalist platform.

The devil is at work on many fronts, whether it be geopolitics, society and culture, economics, religion, or whatsoever.

I believe that the true explosion from the minions –both human and supernatural, came the night Trump won the election. The outburst by his opponents was astonishing to behold.

We remember the woman sitting on the curb the moment she learned that Trump had won. She shrieked and broke into hysterical screaming and gyrating. The cell phone camera caught the insane reaction for all to see.

I, of course, being blind, couldn’t see it physically, but the sounds were such that it was easy to visualize the actual video accompanying the absolutely lunatic-sounding shrieks. It was if the poor woman was possessed.

To the rational mind, it should be apparent; it seems to me, that the thinking ability of nearly half of the people in this nation of adult age has been turned inside-out and upside-down. I have written often –and my mind has not been changed—that because much of American citizenry has moved increasingly farther away from acceptance of godly government, the country has reached the point described by the Apostle Paul in Romans.

“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient. (Rom. 1: 28)

As for believers, those who have accepted God’s grace gift of salvation through the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, we have the ability to discern these things as part of end times spiritual warfare. We don’t have to have the credentials of world-wide name recognition like that of a Franklin Graham to appropriate this discernment ability. We are expected –commanded—to not only recognize the supernatural wrestling match –or end times battle—we are in. We are to prepare ourselves to face this very time in which we find ourselves just before our Lord Calls us home in the Rapture.

“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.” (Eph. 6: 11-18)

    MOST PEOPLE DON’T REALIZE HOW REAL THE DEMONIC DECEPTION IS. PRAY IN JESUS NAME! PRAISE GOD PRAISE JESUS PRAISE THE HOLY SPIRIT! JESUS TOLD US DO NOT BE DECIEVED!

    Love how your writings are: Poetic, clear, articulate, & Biblically sound! The Dear Lord is making quite clear the distinct line between the demonic & the Godly, the evil & the good, those who love death & those who love life, those who love lies & those who love truth. It’s becoming ever more “vexing” to coexist! Thank our Lord that this is NOT our home!! MARANATHA

    I have never seen such hostility toward any president as I have toward Donald Trump and, in its wake, the growth and acceptance of radial-Left ideas which not so long ago would have never gained popular acceptance.

    I consider these just two symptoms of reprobate-mind syndrome that is growing day by day across the world. As I watch all of these things unfold, it is easy to imagine a dark and unseen force propelling these things along. the identity of said force is no other than the father of lies, Satan himself.

    Unfortunately, most of humanity has no idea just how badly it is being set up – for a really big fall.

    Those of us who believe in the Bible know this is the way history must play out, but it sure is tough watching it unfold in our own time.

    Remember that when the going gets really scary, we Christians walk by faith not by sight.

    I remember watching the “snowflakes” sobbing and melting when Donald Trump’s victory in the election was announced and I thought then it was demonic in nature and not a normal reaction. That has proved to be even truer as Congress became involved in their hostility toward him and their refusal to work with him. It defies logic.

    The insanity continued to manifest with the attacks in the hearings over Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Nothing was making sense. Insanity prevailed and they tried to destroy an innocent man’s career and life with their faked charges.

    Fast forward to the more recent Impeachment fiasco and listening to the witnesses against Donald Trump. It sounds more like the mean girls in the high school gym class, locker room style gossip. No evidence just suppositions, presumptions, opinions and extreme bias as they try once again to damage his presidency.

    I saw his election as an act of God. I prayed over that election long and hard to know how to vote, what was the will of God. When my husband and I decided to vote for Donald Trump I had a peace about it. God had shown me Trump was His Cyrus for the USA. God does not need a “perfect man” to work his miracles. He chose Donald Trump and placed him in the White House. He is our last chance. And like other responders to your article, I can see the dark forces at work. I have studied the Scripture. I know what is in store for this world. Satan is behind all the turmoil, all the hatred, all the evil we see playing out before us. And it is tough to watch it happen. I weep over our country and over our nation.

    I pray for our President and our nation. I pray for our people to change their wicked ways and return to God. I pray for them to have discernment. I desire that for us all but I know and I see what is happening. And I weep over their ignorance.
