I am a little disturbed by many seemingly grounded Christians who have seemed to have went off the deep end of singing the praises of President Elect Donald Trump. I am glad he won this election over the Clinton bunch. Trump is merely a man. If he does what he says he will do, God willing, then we could see good change. If he appoints truly good people to the Supreme Court that in itself can have long term effects on the future of this nation.
I only want to have everyone who reads this to ask themselves a question.
Many have heard the ‘prophecy’ given by the fireman. Many have been caught up in watching things unfold. Many have prayed for Mr Trump and for America all across the world. So many people have said, “Trump said he would build a wall and Ezekiel said that God sought a man that should make up a hedge (wall) and stand in the gap before me and my land.” The Lord says BUT, I FOUND NONE. The question we should be asking is…What does this all mean. Should brothers and sisters be putting on their party hats just yet? Calm down and let’s continue to pray and watch. Trump is merely a man. Good intentions and plans, maybe. Could they be changed to something opposite along the way, possibly. CALM DOWN, stop singing Trump’s praises and keep looking for the One True Saviour, Jesus Christ our Lord.
It appears the election has been won and sure we all felt a sense of relief and joy and give the glory to God. We need to continue focusing on God and not Trump. Keeping your eyes opened wide.
And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord God.
I imagine that God was looking for a man like Noah. Jerusalem is in a terrible state as we enter this verse, among the list of sinful practices is: princes using their power to shed blood, making idols, oppression of foreigners and mistreatment of the fatherless and the widow, desecrating the Sabbath, men committing detestable offenses against women. God sought a man to stand in the gap so that the Lord could enact change in Jerusalem and bring life where there is currently only sin and death. God found no man that could do this, and thus Jerusalem is delivered into the hand of Babylon.
