When I think about the swearing in of the incoming [s]elected president, I know and perceive it as also a new direction in which the country, world, and at immediate level within our own selves will go because of this new spirit being exalted and allowed by God to sit in such an energy radiating position.
It’s amazing when I looked up the scriptures of the day on January 20, 2017; from two different Christian bible websites I found the first about the dealing and processing of trials and temptation, and then the other scripture about boldness of teachings and/or a message being marveled and absorbed.
James 1:2-3 NIV
Trials and Temptations
(2) Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, (3) because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
Acts 4:13 KJV
Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.
Let us deal with the first scripture pertaining to President Donald John Trump’s inauguration and the people who live in America. It’s amazing how throughout Trump’s campaign and even at the inauguration how he has echoed this whole mantra about America being in it’s rough times under past presidencies’ administrations and losing its “greatness”. It would be fair to say that also Trump’s campaign endured some interesting and appeared rough opposition. We notice more appeared opposition growing with the protests that has occurred around the country. Trump’s skin is very hard to penetrate as he face these many trials of persecution. His spirit, however level of likened narcissism it may be, is contagious and borderline addictive because of the energy his position absorbs from the people that point their attention to that office he now sits in.
"So as Christians it is very important that we draw only from this spirit of tough skinned to be able to face our trials and resist our daily temptations."
Likewise, let us not be tempted to strike out as the evil and unlearned do in our world. We must busy ourselves with our purpose and use our faith to allow us to happily live in such a trying times as we face now. In a country that is greatly divided on such a challenging undertaking and the truth is there’s nothing no one can do about it. Therefore, let’s not exploit our weakness and areas in our spiritual protection shields where we can allow the demonic forces and negativity to creep in. We have much work ahead us yet and so little time.
To wrap things up, we will now look at the other verse from Acts 4:13 out of the King James Version. It speaks of the boldness the Apostles carried whenever they went into a new community to spread the message of the Gospel. Don’t cross and twist my words, by no mean am I calling President Trump an Apostle, but truth is he does carry himself with extreme boldness and confidence. He has beat his message into the heads of everyone around the world and made a shift unprecedented. It is assumed that Mr. Trump is very unlearned and ignorant, but his results and success in fulfilling his set intentions is no doubt far from whatever dumbed down behavior the media and opponents highlight more. If this is the spirit that will diverge and provoke the current climate of the reality we live in the world, then surely we shall enact the power of God and call on the Holy Spirit as Christians to stand and speak boldly about the salvation everyone can enjoy if they would accept the love and teachings of the true Jesus Christ that died on a cross and was resurrected on the third day after his death. We shall do this and be bold in our abilities to create new wealth and positive, loving relationships and communities. Peace, blessings, and love be with you all.
