When Americans Shall Say ‘Peace And Safety’…


Millions of Americans are expecting a new “golden age” for America under Donald Trump, but is that what they are going to get? There is always optimism when a new president is elected, but I don’t know if I have ever seen anything like the euphoria that many Trump supporters are expressing right now. Look, I voted for Donald Trump and I want him to be as successful as possible. But when Donald Trump becomes our next president on January 20th, that does not mean that all of the great problems that our nation is facing will somehow magically disappear. If you listen to some people, they make it sound like America is going to experience nothing but peace, prosperity and blessing for decades to come. I would love it if that was indeed going to be the case, but unfortunately that is simply not the truth.

We are currently on a path that leads to national suicide, and unless we change our ways it isn’t going to matter who is in the White House.

I keep hearing about how our new president is going to “unify” the nation, but that is going to be extremely difficult to do considering the fact that we are now more divided than ever. In fact, a brand new Gallup survey found that an all-time record high 77 percent of all Americans believe that we are “greatly divided when it comes to the most important values”.

I keep hearing about how we are now entering a golden age of peace and prosperity, but how is that supposed to happen while we are still butchering millions of innocent children in our abortion mills?

I keep hearing about how the economy is about to take off like a rocket, but how is that possible when we have already been on the greatest debt binge in world history? The only way we have been able to maintain our massively inflated debt-fueled standard of living is by piling up debt at a faster pace than any generation in history. Today we have accumulated 12 trillion dollars in consumer debt, corporate debt has doubled since the last financial crisis, and the national debt is rapidly approaching 20 trillion dollars. How can Trump possibly pump up our standard of living with debt more than Obama has already done?

I keep hearing about how we are “going to make America great again”, but how can we be great when we are producing more pornography than the rest of the world combined?

I keep hearing about how “law and order is going to restored”, but meanwhile chaos has already been erupting in cities all over the nation and the far left is planning to turn Inauguration Day into a major riot.

I keep hearing about how “things are going to go back to the way they used to be”, but as I discussed in a previous article, “sexually-transmitted diseases are spreading at the fastest pace in decades, the percentage of births out of wedlock is more than 10 times higher than in 1940, and approximately two out of every three Christian men watch pornography on a regular basis.”

I keep hearing about how we are going “to drain the swamp”, and yet there are no plans to even reform the Federal Reserve system which is at the very heart of our financial problems as a nation.

I keep hearing about how good judges are going to be put on the Supreme Court, but how can we trust that when our new president just said that he is “fine with” the Supreme Court decision that forced all 50 states to redefine the institution of marriage?

I keep hearing about how we are going to be “an example” for the rest of the world, but how can we be “an example” when just about every form of evil imaginable is exploding in popularity inside our own country?

I keep hearing about how our government is going to be “blessed”, but how can a government that gives hundreds of millions of dollars a year to Planned Parenthood be “blessed”? Now that the Republicans have control of the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives, this is their golden opportunity to defund Planned Parenthood. If it doesn’t happen now, it probably will never happen, and it will show what a complete and utter failure the Republican Party has become. Remember, Planned Parenthood is an organization that has been caught on camera admitting that they harvest organs from the babies that they kill and that they sell those organs off to the highest bidder.

Some would argue that America is already “great” at a lot of things. After all, the United States is number one in the world in television watching, legal drug use and illegal drug use.

We lead the world in plastic surgery, eating disorder deaths, teen pregnancy and lawyers per capita.

We have the highest STD infection rate in the industrialized world, the highest divorce rate in the industrialized world, and the largest prison population on the entire planet.

We also have the most complicated tax system in the entire world, the largest trade deficit in the entire world, and the largest national debt in the entire world.

So if we want to make America great again, we sure have a lot of work to do.

The complacency that I am seeing out there right now really alarms me. So many people seem to think that the battle is won because Donald Trump was victorious on election night. But that is not even close to reality.

If we do not fundamentally change course as a nation we will not survive. Tinkering with tax rates, regulations and trade agreements is not going to get the job done. So many people are acting as if we just have a few cuts and scratches, when the reality is what our country really needs is major heart surgery.

Donald Trump is not some sort of a messiah, and even if he is able to accomplish every single thing that he is promising right now it will not nearly be enough.

But for the moment millions of Americans are proclaiming “peace and safety” now that Donald Trump has won the election, and we shall see how it all turns out…

  1. You’re right Michael. Game over. We should just give up now.

    How can you be SO DAMN BLIND ?!?!? Why the euphoria? Because if Satan had won, it would actually be THE END OF AMERICA, so yeah, people are going to be happy that THAT DIDN’T HAPPEN ! WHy else are they happy? Because he is doing things no other president elect has done like get rid of the lobbyists, chew out the media in a private meeting, standing up for the good people. You are dressing down the choir for the actions of the thugs smoking in the street. You REALLY needs to change your attitude Michael. Do you really think depressive fatalist defeatism is what we need to make America great again? You are upset people are optimistic and energized? All right. I will make you happy and retreat into a ball of self pity and depression, not trying to change anything because what’s the point, it’s over. Man, GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR BUTT AND START BEING A BEACON OF LIGHT AND HOPE! Are you so used to being a peddler of negativity that you can’t even see positive change when it stares you square in the face ?!?! My goodness, if our soldiers had your attitude during WW2, we’d all be speaking German right now. Michael, either get in the game, or withdraw completely because I am going to fight for this country and the future of my kids, and I don’t need to hear your negative defeatist cheers from the side line. Did God tell David to “give it up David. Goliath is going to destroy you”. Wake up man.

  2. I was involved in this sickness for a few years and it is sick. There are preachers saying that God has no issue with it… Woe unto them…

  3. A significant battle was won, in multitudes of Christians interceding in prayer, in Trump getting elected.

    The war, however, is far from over.

    Remain at your stations.

    Now is not the time to lower your guard down and take a 5.

    The Church’s effectual and fervent prayers are sore needed, in this hour. With much fasting, also.

    Get your spiritual houses in order.

    Peace and good tidings.

  4. Sad that Christians completely disavowed their beliefs to elect Trump… Question is, were they really Christians? Only God can answer that…

    • I am born-again Christian who confesses the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior; the same Jesus Christ that was born of a virgin and was conceived via the Holy Spirit; who died on a cross, was resurrected on the third day, and now sits on the right hand of the Father.

      In spite of Trump’s past and history, God has ordained him as President of the United States, and to be His servant and a man after His heart.

      If the Church will set aside personal political differences, be of one mind and accord, and diligently/fervently pray for this man — we will see God move powerfully through him.

      He must be interceded for, in prayer.

      • God put’s all leaders in place, but many Christians think this man is a little more than that… We pray for all leaders… I wonder if Christians were honest how would they answer these two questions… They apparently never like obama so…

        1) How many hours did you intercede for obama in the last 8 years…


        2) How many days did you fast for obama in the last 8 years…

        Maybe they will now that they got their “man” in there!

        • God put’s all leaders in place

          I don’t know about that. Remember that little incident when Satan offers all the kingdoms of the world to Jesus for an act of Worship? Jesus denied Satan, but of equal importance Jesus never denied that those kingdoms were Satan’s to give.
