Restrainer’s Resounding Resistance

Election 2020 isn’t over. There is, I sense, much yet to be discovered, uncovered, and, perhaps recovered, before the final period—perhaps I should say “exclamation point”—marks its finality.

At the center of this end-of-the-age demarcation—this evil-saturated presidential election—stands Heaven’s most powerful force. This holy entity of might is unseen, but it’s not without resounding energy and impact. The power within its long-ago prophesied influence for just this critical hour is on the very brink of revealing God to a wicked, wicked world, I believe.

We have witnessed earth’s powers and principalities in government, military bastions, and media enclaves as they have coalesced to form, perhaps, the most powerful anti-God movement in the history of man. At the same time, Heaven’s force has quietly swatted away every attempt to bring in Satan’s Antichrist regime. The evil has been, as I’ve said, almost tangible throughout every news cycle over the past four or five years. The defense against the evil hasn’t been overtly manifest, for the most part.

All of this end-of-the-age spiritual warfare, straight out of Ephesians 6:12, has seemed to be fought particularly in America. The moment Donald J. Trump was made his political party’s nominee, the battle roared to life in ways not seen in my lifetime. The satanic minions were knocked off balance, losing equilibrium—and all sanity—from that moment. They are scrambling more frantically than ever to regain lost time in the globalist onslaught they began following World War II with the establishment of the United Nations.

Still, as the battle rages, the force that resists is largely hidden, spiritually speaking. But it is there, and it is a pent-up force that I sense is about to be unleashed in ways those of us within whom it resides can’t fully fathom.

To many believers, it seems that God is silent, while the minions of the powers-and-principalities coalition apparently have gotten away with fraud of the first order. Mainstream news media and all other media outlets dominated by the “prince of the power of the air” proclaim at every opportunity that Mr. Biden is president-elect—even though it is the electors of the states, not any news sources, that are given the constitutional authority to declare who is president.

And, ultimately, it isn’t even these electors who have that power. They are but players on the stage of history—as we all are.

It is the God of Heaven who determines who will be president. He raises up kings and those in authority, and He removes them, the Scripture tells us. His, alone, is the true power that determines the future.

All this, and at the same time He allows free will. It is a concept beyond the finite mind’s ability to comprehend. In other words, we cannot understand how He can at the same time allow free will, yet control everything absolutely. This is all wrapped up, of course, in His omnipotence—His all-powerful, hands-on governance of His created universe.

It’s part of His omniscience, too—His all-consuming knowledge from eternity past into eternity future. There is nothing that takes Him by surprise and nothing that He doesn’t ultimately control.

So while it might seem that resistance to evil is on the decline and that the minions of evil are charging to victory in this election and in every other facet of life upon this fallen sphere, the opposite is true.

As my good friend, Jan Markell, one of the most listened-to program hosts in Christian radio, says: “Things aren’t falling apart; they are falling together”—i.e., things laid out in God’s prophetic foreknowledge are coming to fruition exactly as the He says, and at a blistering pace.

The very fact that all of the cheating and fraud taking place in Election 2020 haven’t yet secured victory for those perpetrators means, to us who observe closely, that God and His restraining hand is still at work as powerfully as ever. That power is fueled in a mighty way by the prayers of His saints, who are indwelt by God the Holy Spirit.

So, whatsoever the outcome of this election, God’s will is being done, and His victory—thus ours—is absolutely assured.

“Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us” (Romans 8:37).

    Outstanding words and truth Pastor James!!! It’s this reassurance of God’s sovereignty as you so eloquently state that has kept me from trying to take the matters of the injustices and false narratives into my own hands. Thank you for your continued reassurance that “God’s got this”. Maranatha Lord Jesus.

  2. Ed Wood says:

    Two fundamental facts come across very clearly in this commentary: 1) God is in control. 2) God never abandons his own. The Bible is full of historical evidence of these truths.Many times God his totally turned around a situation that initially appeared hopeless into something grand and glorious. The Resurrection of Jesus and the radical change in his apostles from cowering doubters to bold proclaimers of the Word is the best example of that.

    Whatever happens in the days ahead regarding the election, God will always make things turn out right.

    Jesus himself said:

    John {14:15} If ye love me, keep my commandments. {14:16} And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; {14:17} [Even] the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. {14:18} I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

    We are NOT forgotten!

    • Glenn B. says:

      Amen my brother Ed. Great words of wisdom and discernment.

      • Ed Wood says:

        Thanks, Glenn. I appreciate that. Sometimes it does feel like we are totally on our own down here when we see how bad things are getting, but, thankfully, we have the Bible to always remind us that we never are.

  3. Julia Pomeroy says:

    Exactly how I and my beloved have been thinking although we could not put it as eloquently as that. This is definitely not a time to be praying according to our will but according to God’s will which might actually run counter to what we think His will is.

  4. Julia Pomeroy says:

    PS I forgot to remind people that God always acts but sometimes, as it was prior to the Exodus, it could seem very last minute!

  5. PLEASE consider two powerful, unfailing truths:

    Our LORD’S plan covering all of eternity, was Perfect in the DAY HE released it. No part of His divine plan will fail to come to complete, literal fulfillment!!!!!

    It will not only be fulfilled, but will occur at the PRECISE TIME He appointed to happen.

    At no time was His divine, perfect plan ever subject to the approval of mere men……

    These truths will strengthen your faith if you choose to believe them!!!!!

  6. Encouragement. Thank you.

    Completely on the ball. What a year!!! I do believe that you. Terry, and all the commentators who have been repeatedly focused on the Bible in recent years have enabled those with ears to hear and eyes to see to realise that our Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth has been preparing us for many years.

    My wife and I have benefitted from closely holding on to God, with much difficulty! To realise that this crisis has been manipulated by satan, perhaps the penultimate part of his 6000 year battle against God!

    To see this worldwide domination is more than any of us could forsee, yet God can never be taken by surprise. It is amazing how He allows us to be part of His restraint on the evil one.

    I think that we shall be out of here soon, meanwhile it is so necessary for us to be encouraged by this and other similar blogs.
    Thank you.
