Politics and Eschatology

I am a Bible believing Christian. What’s more, I’m a pretribulational premillennial Christian. That means that I believe the next thing to happen in world History as it relates to prophecy is the rapture where every believer will be lifted into the air to meet Jesus Christ in the clouds and then spend 7 years in heaven with Him, while a seven year period of ever worsening trouble happens on earth before we return at the end of the 7 years to defeat Satan and the world’s forces. Then Christ sets up his thousand year reign from Jerusalem.

I am an American citizen. I believe strongly in the principles that our founding fathers espoused, that people should have the right to speak, worship, and live as they please, insomuch as it does not infringe on other people’s rights to the same. I believe that the United States of America is the greatest country that has ever existed in the history of the world.

And I believe it’s over.

I’ve said this before, that I think our country is done. As a Christian, I believe there’s a reason why the United States isn’t mentioned in the book of Revelation: because we’re not around.  When a majority of evangelical (read: conservative Christian) voters in South Carolina decide that the best hope for our future is a misogynistic, adulterous, immoral, dishonest, pro-choice narcissist like Donald Trump, I have little hope that any conservative can be successful in leading this country.

A Trump/Clinton/Sanders White House might be the last nail in the coffin. The fact that I’m a believer reminds me that no matter what happens here on Earth, I have a home waiting for me, but I will fight for my earthly country until it no longer exists.

And unlike Ben Carson, I can read the writing on the wall.
