    Well as a teacher I love techincal'ness". We have been living in the last "era"(as day is used most of the time for this. ) The last days are a specific time frame which began in may 1948 when God restored Israel to their native homeland and this started the prophetic clock ticking again!

The populist movement that President Trump road into office was not the love child of either the left or the right, but it thrived on the impotence of both parties in dealing with reality life issues.
      Excellent point!

        No they cannot vote for a Democrat, unless the Democrat is against traditional Democrat values and does not support them.

        EDIT: Also I want to share my beliefs about Democracy and why it is bad if that is okay on a forum like this?

        EDIT II: Of course by against traditional democrat values I mean that they are fully a true believer in Yeshua and are against all of the evil things like abortion, gay marriage, socialism/communism, illegal immigration and other evil wicked things that Democrats usually support.

        EDIT III: Voting for President Trump was one of the best choices that I ever made in my life. I am very thankful for my wise earthly Father guiding me to do so.

          We can argue about values, political poiits all day long.

          Bottom line- Christians shouldn't vote for candidates that hold to blatant anti-biblical values, but they most certainly can and still be a Christian.

          I held my nose and voted Trump. He is an adulterer. If Franklin Graham is correct- He gave his life to christ this year! I hope so- for that gives him the opportunity to be led of the Spirit. I like what he has done so far.

            President Trump did not get into office because he was Donal Trump. President Trump got into office, because every other person on that stage was the carbon cutout of the quint-essential political candidate that people have been holding their nose and crossing their fingers about, for years before voting. I can see why the establishment takes a dim view of President Trump but I can't fathom why anyone else has such a dim view

            Forget about what he is doing around the world and consintrate on what is happening within politics and that is the milk toast menagerie is coming apart at the seems, which is, I think a good thing. Each side can no longer hide their in the shadows of the others quote/unquote intransigence.

              Donald Trump got elected because He is who God wanted to occupy the oval office at this time in human history! As believers that is what we need to always remember- politics and elections are only the window dressing fro god to accomplish what He wills!

                I know in Romans 13:1 The Bible says Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

                That tells me the Lord ordains the ruling athority, but does that mean the government, itself or it's individual leaders? If God picked president Trump, then wouldn't that mean he also picked President Obama, President Clinton and President Carter, as well. Do you think he allows these subversive presidents to toughen up the Christian comunity for that which is to come?

                  Yes I do! Scripture makes it clear that gods controls Those higher powers are kings and governors and presidents etc.

                  But Daniel leaves no room for doubt:
                  Daniel 2:21King James Version (KJV)

                  21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:

                  To go even further- god allowed for His purposes HItler, Stalin, Mao and other despots.

                    Agrees with nolidad

                    This position is a consistent application of divine sovereignty over everything. It is a denial of any form of dualism or deism.

                    Absolutely! Satan and man have only limited freedom to act. But nothing happens unless approved by God! Even Satan and his deeds will ultimately justify the glory of god!

This idea of greed is a fallacy, Whose the more greedy. Those who offer merchandise or services that they make a profit on or those who claim they have the right to others income based solely upon a personal sense of entitlement.
                  Those who believe that the world systems are the answer will be surprised when the look at the eyes of our savior and he says I never knew you.
