1st Corinthians 1:22-29
For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: But we preach the Messiah crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, the Messiah is the power of יהוה, and the wisdom of יהוה. Because the foolishness of יהוה is wiser than men; and the weakness of יהוה is stronger than men. For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But יהוה hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and יהוה hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath יהוה chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence.
Jews and Greeks who abide in Messiah are not the ones who are being discussed here in this passage.
Sure the Jews look for a sign, because to them, a visual evidence of Christ would be easier for them to hold on too. That’s why the bulk of the Hebrew nation are still looking for the Messiah because when He first came, He didn’t do what they expected of Him and therefore He was rejected.
The Greeks on the other hand considered themselves so intelligent that their own understanding of what they ‘thought’ of Christ, and what they expected Him to do, was a stumbling block for them.
Now I’m not saying that Donald Trump can be anywhere near the evidence of Christ or the intelligence of our Mighty King, but you can certainly compare the concept of a similar misunderstanding of those who are not on board the Trump train.
The presidency of Donald Trump, has obviously become a stumbling block to those who never expected the he would be the President of these United States.
I even heard that a well known newspaper is struggling to understand why people of faith could be behind this president and that ‘Christianity’ itself is hard for this newspaper to grasp.
The folks who abide in Christ fully believe that Yahushua is who He claimed to be. And simularly, believers are not confused at all in their support of Donald Trump, because we know that Yahwey does use people in presidential or kingly positions.
How do we the believers know this? Because of a passage written in the Apostle Paul’s letter to Timothy.
1st Timothy 2:1-4
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all reverence and seriousness. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of יהוה our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
My thought and understanding is that even though we do not like certain political influences, nor do we agree with what their policies are, Yahwey establishes those in authority.
Who knows but only God, what might occur if we really did pray for those in authority; that we as a people might lead a quiet and peaceable life in all reverence and seriousness.
Taking this passage from Paul’s letter to the folks at Corinth, he said that the foolishness of God, is wiser than men; and the weakness of our Creator is stronger than men.
Honestly this comes as a surprise to me. The twelve disciples who were later ordained as Apostels, who would take the gospel to the nations, were the vessels chosen to convey the treasure of saving knowledge to the world.
There was nothing in theses twelve men, that at first view glance would look like anyone who our Elohim would use, because they were basically fishermen and a tax collector. But God, who is wiser than the foolishness of men, transfered His doctrine through His Son Yahushua and gave it to these twelve men; who are still moving along God’s doctrine, through the believers who are presently reading their written words, in our Bibles.
In the case of our current president, the method of belief and support in him, isn’t going to change or be censured by those on the left because Elohim is clearly using this current administration, even if it confounds the understanding of those on the left, who otherwise thought it was generally a foolish thing that Donald Trump could ever become the elected President of the United States.
He is the current president of those who want peace and are optimistic in America. No matter what we think or believe, for some reason, Yahwey has chosen Donald Trump to lead America for the next four years and this is confounding to those on the left.
I (Eudora), am hopeful that Yahwey would use this man for the next ‘eight’ years, to take what once was a sinking ship, and pull it out of the downward spiraling plumet and lift up this nation, taking her in a different direction – upwards.
In my personal life time, other than Ronald Reagan, this is the first president who is not part of the political establishment who has claimed the presidency. Our president often refers to himself as ‘a messenger’ who would in all reality, would be comparable to the twelve disciples who also carried a message.
Donald Trump listened to the people. He had a ear to hear what their needs are and he has promised to do everything in his power to deliver on those promises and this is why he was elected by the people and now stands to serve the people and drain the swamp.
Our president has said more than once, that he firmly belives that he was chosen and that this is his calling.
Those who ‘think’ themselves more mighty in their own flesh and ‘think’ themselves more noble, than all those folks that Donald Trump heard with his own ears, are left drifting out in the ocean of their own disbelief. Yet our president is willing to extend a hand and pull them up out of the ocean where they have been drowning ever since they fell out of the ship. Our president’s hearts desire, is to work for all Americans and bring the whole nation out of the abyss.
But like I said, for what ever reason and those known only to Elohim, He has placed Donald Trump in this position of power. It is clearly obvious to most all believers that those who think of him as foolish and not mentally capable of leading this nation, are those who are self elated in their own wise thinking.
Those in the left are completely confounded by what transpired in the election. They honestly thought that Hillary Clinton was going to win the election, but that is not what happened. They are seriously having a hard time adjusting to this new presidential position.
And finally in closing, Yahwey did not choose a philosopher, an orator, nor a statesmen or politician at this time. He chose a humble man of wealth and power and his sincere interest in America, to publish a gospel of unity, that he believes can take America in a different direction.
Sure, those on the left, dispute and despise and want to dispose of this president. But we who are believers know that even in all his flesh, no matter what his hearts desire is, and no matter what He does, true peace and divine grace is out of reach for those whose lives are not guided by the Holy Spirit. No-one will impact this world in an everlasting way until Yahushua returns as He said He would.
In the mean time, simular to the gospel dispensation that is geared to humble the heart of mankind and bring glory to God, the leadership of a Donald Trump is used by Yahwey, Who will use him to also humble the heart man, and bring glory to God.
Likewise, we as believers are humble that Yahwey has chosen to extend His hand once again and work towards causing this nation to rise up, even though the choices that this America has recently decided on, is in oposition to the glory of the Most High Elohim.
There is a great deal of power in the substance and life of those who believe. Donald Trump is a also a believer. He is completely aware that Yahwey has a hand upon him and yes Donald Trump is a messenger of the people. But Donald Trump also recognizes that Yahwey has not yet let go of the people who worship God and call upon His name, and live in the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Yahwey is still the Most Wise, He is still the Most Righteous and He is still in the process of sanctification, and redemption of those who are willing to yield themselves to His way. Evidently He too, still belives that America can be molded in His hand, to promote and bring about His ultimate plan. Make no mistake about it, no flesh on earth living in any human vessel, should bring glory themselves in His presence. All the glory must be unto the LORD.
The fact that Yahwey is using Donald Trump is a visable sign. His wisdom to do so does not leave the believer confounded. It leaves us in a state of realizing His blessing and His mercy upon these United States.
We thank God for His choice to use Donald Trump at this time, especially since the alternative was Hillary Clinton, who was not only denied by the people but she was obviously not acceptable in God’s sight and therefore, denied by Him too.
Harsh as that may seem, truth is not denied either. That is not saying that her time could still come. For such a time as this, Elohim in His GREAT MERCY, has chosen Donald J. Trump to lead America.
