Kiss the Son
The first thing I want to say today is that when writing and recording yesterday’s post, the indictment of Trump, in connection with January 6, had not yet occurred and was nowhere in my thinking. Actually, I left my studio after recording the post, and only then heard the news. This does not mean the timing is unrelated. I believe Holy Spirit led me to do so yesterday, and very few things could have confirmed what I stated more effectively than this indictment.
We have all heard the phrase, “It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to understand…” However, when afforded the opportunity to glean insights from such a brainiac - pun intended - why not do so? Here is what the incredibly brilliant and level-headed brain surgeon, Dr. Ben Carson, had to say about the indictment: “The political persecution of President Trump continues. If this THIRD indictment isn't a reason to drain the swamp, I don't know what is.” (1)
Then there is the incredibly wise, articulate, and also level-headed Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas, who said the following: “On Jan 6 @realDonaldTrump tells crowd to peacefully protest. He gets indicted by Biden's DOJ. Joe skims millions from Ukraine and Communist China. Nothing. Yes, Americans see it for what it is. I will work harder than ever to reelect Trump.” (2) Boom.
Having commented on President Trump’s indictment, it is important to reiterate that yesterday’s post was not about him. My calling is NOT to defend Donald Trump, support Republicans, or impugn Democrats. It IS to speak truth, teach Scripture, promote biblical principles (values), and be a prophetic voice of what I believe Holy Spirit is saying today. If you did not see yesterday’s post, consider reading or listening to it (America's "Pharaohs"). I believe it is a word from Holy Spirit. Here is a brief portion:
“Just as He did with Pharaoh, God used the Left’s lust for power and control, their pride, and the hardness of their hearts as the fuse. Their anger and hatred of outsider Donald Trump - along with his obvious threat to their power - was the match that lit the fuse. God allowed them enough success to believe they were now firmly and irreversibly in control. Thus, there was no longer a need to hide their intentions. What were once covert and subtle attempts to control, became brazen abuses of power. Hidden and disguised strategies became full-on, in-your-face, ‘we don’t have to hide it anymore – we are taking over your country,’ actions. They took the bait, and now, like Pharaoh, they and their hardened hearts are speeding pell-mell toward the Red Sea.” (3)
When thinking of those in our day who arrogantly rise up against God and feel they can mock Him, twist laws, implement double standards of justice, lie with impunity, groom kindergartners for immoral lifestyles, kill innocent babies, and mutilate confused children, some words of the Ancient of Days to Job come to mind:
“Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said, ‘Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge? Now gird up your loins like a man, and I will ask you, and you instruct Me! Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding, who set its measurements? Since you know. Or who stretched the line on it? On what were its bases sunk? Or who laid its cornerstone, when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?’” (Job 38:1-7 NASB)
“Then the Lord answered Job out of the storm and said, ‘Now gird up your loins like a man; I will ask you, and you instruct Me. Will you really annul My judgment? Will you condemn Me that you may be justified? Or do you have an arm like God, and can you thunder with a voice like His?’” (Job 40:6-9 NASB)
Isaiah’s words from Yahweh also come to mind, when the Almighty spoke of His omnipotence and omniscience:
“To whom then will you liken God? Or what likeness will you compare with Him? He it is who reduces rulers to nothing, who makes the judges of the earth meaningless. Scarcely have they been planted, scarcely have they been sown, scarcely has their stock taken root in the earth, but He merely blows on them, and they wither, and the storm carries them away like stubble. ‘To whom then will you liken Me that I would be his equal?’ says the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high and see who has created these stars, the One who leads forth their host by number, He calls them all by name; because of the greatness of His might and the strength of His power, not one of them is missing.” (Isaiah 40:18, 23-26 NASB)
God was not intimidated by Job and his counselors, Israelites in Isaiah’s day, nor Pharaoh; and He is certainly not intimidated by the chariot riders of our day. Psalm 2 is the final passage that comes to mind when considering those in America who arrogantly oppose God. Yahweh overhears kings and rulers conniving about overthrowing His and His Son’s rule (Psalm 2:1-3). His first response is mocking laughter (verse 4), after which He speaks to these rebellious leaders and “TERRIFIES THEM IN HIS FURY” (verse 5). The Almighty then assures us that His Son’s reign over Earth is secure (verses 6-9).
The ever-kind and gracious God then ends the chapter with an offer of mercy; even in His wrath, Yahweh remembers mercy (Habakkuk 3:2).
“Listen to me, all you rebel kings and all you upstart judges of the earth. Learn your lesson while there’s still time. Serve and worship the awe-inspiring God. Recognize His greatness and bow before Him, trembling with reverence in His presence. Fall facedown before Him and kiss the Son before His anger is roused against you. Remember that His wrath can be quickly kindled! But many blessings are waiting for all who turn aside to hide themselves in Him!” (Psalm 2:10-12 TPT)
Pray with me:
Father, Your infinite wisdom and knowledge are beyond our finite ability to grasp; Your power knows no bounds. We are forever grateful that Your nature is also love; You’re always gracious and kind. Thank You for offering salvation, even to those who conspire against You, if they will repent and “kiss” Your Son.
So, we ask for salvation to come to those in America who oppose You and partner with evil. Open their eyes to truth and the gospel. You know for whom this is still possible; for them, we request deliverance and salvation. The blood of Jesus still cleanses from ALL sin and unrighteousness. We glory in this salvation, both for ourselves and for all who will receive it.
And yet, we ask You to overthrow the plans and strategies of darkness being implemented by people in our nation. Bring down their strongholds, frustrate their plans, empty their bank accounts, confuse their efforts, and continue to expose evil. Lead Pharaohs to the Red Sea, while at the same time opening the eyes and transforming the hearts of millions, turning them into lovers of truth and worshippers of Your Son. We ask for and decree the coming of Your Kingdom ways here on earth, just as they operate in heaven. And we do so in Yeshua’s name.
We decree that the Son of righteousness is rising with a sword in His hand and healing in His wings.
