The Trump Presidential Candidacy is about loving the creation more than the Creator, and above all, loving himself more so than Americans regardless of skin-color. “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure do they are and were created.” (Revelation 4: 11). Make no mistake about Donald Trump is one of God’s creation, not the Creator. First of all, let’s be perfectly clear about this spiritual truism. Every individual regardless of cultural origin is God’s creation. No individual created himself or herself! And, God does not make mistakes. Only human beings make mistakes, and then try to rationalize “away” their mistakes.
When Donald Trump tells you who he is, what he believes, why he believes it, and what he will do if given the opportunity to do so, why not accept him for his own words. Life and death are in the tongue. Trump is simply an individual who is hell-bent on hooking and crooking for material things. “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.” (Proverbs 23:7). Simply put, Trump’s philosophy about life is “use other people’s money”, and we can add not pay his fair share of income taxes. This is precisely why Trump will not publicly “disclose” his taxes, because it will reveal that he has “hood-winked the tax system” that is, not paid his fair share of federal income taxes. But, more importantly, his taxes will reveal what foreign investors and “communistic-minded-dictators” he is in bed with. To be sure, “strange-politics” make for “strange-bed-fellows”. For believers in the Trump doctrine of (ethnic-bigotry, sexism, racism, and religious bigotry) ask yourselves this spiritual question: “Can two walk together, except they be agreed.” (Amos 3:3). We, all should know: “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” (Hebrews 13: 8). Someone from the Christian Right Evangelical Movement who is not a lover of “material-things”, please inform the Donald that life is more than just money; even if it is “other people’s money”: “Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of things which he possesseth.” (Luke 12:15).
Donald Trump wants the American people to believe in him, trust that he can do what he says he can do, and above all, accept him as an international “successful” businessman that knows how to create jobs. My fellow Americans, an individual should never be given a “job” simply because he desires the job. But, give an individual a job, because he is in fact “intellectually” capable of doing the job (functions/tasks associated with the job).
Here’s what all Americans already know or should know about social democracy as a governmental system. American social democracy is based primarily upon spiritual values, not just material values. God has already given us dominion over the world in the four-fold foundation decree: “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” (Genesis 1: 28). And, we can add, except a woman, we are in this together, because women just like men have free-will that is free-will “Moral Agents”, and responsible for saving her own soul.
If an individual such as Donald Trump can be elected to the highest office in the world-community the Presidency of the United States of America; then “God help us all: males and females”. We all know: “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” (Mark 8: 36). Therefore, if the Donald Trump Mentality is elected President of these United States of America, America loses, and the world loses, as well. It is, indeed, unfortunate that apparently Donald Trump had a “CALL” to deliver America from itself. The call either came from the Light-Side or the Dark-Side; however, judging from his rhetoric unmistakably it appears as though it is from the Dark-Side.
Read the preamble to the U.S Constitution, as well as, the Constitution and you will be spiritually enlightened. In fact, the founders of our socio-economic-political-system knew that all Americans should be able to read. Therefore, a universal mass educational system was instituted in order that all individuals learn to read; especially read the Bible, because reading the Bible helps individuals to understand the spiritual meaning of God acting to redeem human history. Therefore, even God has said: “Blessed is he that readeth…” (Revelation 1:3). The Preamble to the U.S. Constitution, as well as, the U. S. Constitution itself is Bible-based, but in a different form and format. Of course, the Framers had good intentions, but they were also “hypocrites”, because their words and actions were not congruent. Reading is spiritually developmental, as well as, socially enlightening. And, of course, this is the reason why social democracy only takes root in certain types of societies, and not others.
The spiritual purpose of religion is to unify individuals; not divide individuals from the truth of God, that equal is equal, not that equal is more or less equal. God chooses leaders that he knows by name, and have found grace in his sight. Moses was such a leader, not comparing in any way Moses and Trump, but we must ask the question: Is the Donald such a man as was Moses? “And the Lord said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name.” (Exodus 33: 17). Without a doubt, material success will test both your moral, as well as, mental-intellectual-character. Death is the socio-spiritual-equalizer, because regardless of ethnicity, sex-status, or skin color death is certain. “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: so Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.” (Hebrews 9:27-28).
God is the only spiritually-unifying-force in the universe. The devil is a spiritual-trickster and a confusion instigator. America, God is spiritually watching and waiting in 2016. Question: Can we “spiritually” get back home to God, before it is too late, because the “Trumpster” should not make America lose her “spiritual blessings” as the nation-state (LIGHT) set on a hill illuminating “points of light” around the world. Selah!
