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).
