A letter to the editor in the November 27, 2016 Sentinel Record

 

Dear editor:

God still speaks to us in various ways — however, as many of you probably realize, He most often speaks through the scriptures of the Bible. That is why I commonly include Bible verses as the basis for conveying what God has said.

Unfortunately, several other letter writers seem to have largely ignored my Romans 13:1 Bible reference which states: “There is no authority except that which God has established.” Since God did not mention any exceptions to this simple statement of truth — that absolutely must mean that it was indeed God who chose Mr. Trump to be our next president!

Barbara Thexton objected to that biblical truth by saying, “I thought that President-elect Trump was chosen by the voters …” Understandably, that’s a fair objection you made, but please realize that even though God has given man a freewill to make choices, it is one in which God has placed limits. Man never has an unlimited freewill. God is always in control of everything and He also uses people to achieve His purposes. This is God’s sovereignty over all things. “He (God) does all that He pleases” (Psalm 115:3).

David Welch objected to the idea that God chose Mr. Trump, even though he has some flaws. Remember that since God is Almighty God, He can certainly do whatever He chooses to do! Who will be brave enough (or foolish enough) to argue with God?

God has certainly used many people who were very imperfect. At one point, David was an adulterer and a murderer, but later was called a man after God’s own heart. And Saul (later converted into the Apostle Paul) was killing anyone who believed in Christ, yet God used him in the greatest way after he became a Christian!

Now I ask — have you heard of a man in the Bible named Cyrus? If not, read about him in Isaiah, Chapter 45. Verse 1 says, “This is what the Lord says to His anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I take hold of …” Verse 2, “I will go before you (Cyrus) …”

Verse 4, “I will summon you by name and bestow upon you a title of honor, though you do not acknowledge Me.” Verse 5, “I will strengthen you.” Verse 13, “He will rebuild my city …”

Listen to the Bible commentary in Is. 45:1-8, “This is the only place in the Bible where a Gentile ruler is said to be ‘anointed.” (Note: Cyrus wasn’t even a Jew, yet God used him to rescue the Jewish people of God! Most unusual.)

Why did God anoint Cyrus? Because He had a special task for him to do.

Many Christians believe that it is very possible that Donald Trump is America’s modern-day Cyrus, chosen by God to liberate America from the evil, ungodly rule that we have been under for eight long miserable years! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Amen!

May God bless America again!
