The leaves are raked in the north country, we are making plans for Thanksgiving dinner and today we are getting the first snowfall of the season.
The forecasters have said that the snow will not accumulate here, but will melt as soon as it touches the ground. Many are saying, "I am not ready for snow yet." And yet hasn't God blessed us with an awesome Autumn?
The election is over here in America and the people of God are confidant that God's man is in place to lead America forward. There are others whose motives are not so pure, they strategize how to disrupt the country with anarchy in the streets. They will not succeed!
Five months from election day, the world will begin to see a different America. As Passover approaches the change will be evident to all.
This morning I studied George Washington at Valley Forge. because I heard Holy Spirit speak a word to me about Donald J. Trump. I found some interesting parallels to today.
It was December of 1777 that Washington and his men camped at Valley Forge for the winter.
It is the year 5777 on the Hebrew calendar and we are in November 2017 on the Gregorian calendar. That is a lot of sevens, which happen to be one of God's favorite numbers.
There were "Regimental Camp Followers" who assisted the soldiers by keeping up their hope and by foraging for supplies. They did the laundry and the mending and they made new clothes.
Martha Washington, like Martha in the Bible, was a servant to the soldiers as well as to her husband. She started a sewing circle to make sox, mittens etc. The women and children that made up these followers were a great aid to General Washington.
Many years later, the man who was chief of the native American tribe that was fighting against them, came to see Washington. He told him that he ordered his men to stop firing, saying "This one is under the special protection of the Great Spirit." He told them , "Listen! The Great Spirit protects that man (pointing at Washington), and guides his destinies - he will become the chief of nations and a people yet unborn will hail him as the founder of a mighty empire." He told Washington, "I came to pay homage to the man who is the particular favorite of Heaven, and who can never die in battle."
George Washington was a man of great courage and fearlessness. He was a man of sound judgment, not swayed by words of men, but he was also a man of great compassion and gentleness as indicated by a letter below that he wrote to the leaders of congress in order to secure help with food and supplies for his army.
"The supplicating tears of women and moving petitions from the men, melt me into such deadly sorrow that I solemnly declare, if I know my own mind, I could offer myself to the butchering enemy, provided that would contribute to the peoples ease."
As I read this I could not help but think of Moses, who interceded for the people of Israel when they had been involved in some serious idolatry against the Lord. Moses told God, "Forgive their sin, but if not, blot me out of your book."
Such men are leaders of mankind from birth, chosen by God Himself to carry an anointing for a special time and a special purpose. I believe that Donald J. Trump is such a man.
Some have said that he has an anointing on him like King Cyrus, whom God called by name, even before he was born, anointing him to help His people Israel.
As I said at the beginning, I heard a word from Holy Spirit this morning as I was waking up, this is that word:
"The same angel that was with George Washington at Valley Forge is With Donald Trump. The opposition is great, the victory will be sweet, there is a price, there will be casualties."
You may interpret that as you will.
God is not a man, He does not lie. He calls things that be not as though they were. He sees the end from the beginning and He is ruled by Love. Looking to Him, trusting in Him...all is well, no matter what the natural realm looks like.
Blessings to you and Happy Thanksgiving!
