Other nations are thanking our God with us,
for giving us a president-elect who sympathizes with Christians and our obeying our Constitution, and our belief in the Holy
Bible. And we in the United States will have a leader who will lower, rather than raise taxes, has a goal of repealing obamacare,
and joins us Christians against such things as planned parenthood and abortion on demand. And to choose new members of our
Supreme Court who will judge, rather than helping make laws. As president, Donald Trump will be a friend to both Christians
and Israel, remembering that God will bless those who bless Israel, and will curse those who curse Israel (Genesis 12:3, 49:9,
Numbers 24:9). Now, as we wonder "What next," it will be a good thought, rather than bad.
Personally, I must tell you that I’ve convicted
myself, for becoming so concerned about the direction our nation was headed, that it actually caused discouragement that wouldn’t
leave me. And finally I realized that this is the kind of feeling I should have for Jesus Christ, every day of my life.
My daily life should have a feeling of grief over lost souls, and concern about care about the needs of our local churches.
Let our daily devotions, and the thought in our
minds, even as we go about the things we do, always have a prayerful attitude in our lives. Asking forgiveness for anything
we do that’s not pleasing to the Lord, and giving Him thanks for His love for us.
Our new president will need our prayers, because not only does he
have a heavy load in straightening the problems that have been thrust upon us as Christians, but he’ll have the same
difficulty in helping us face the future. Pray for him, and for us.

I’ve noticed that some of my Conquest articles have taken on a new complexion since my wife
went to her new home. I don’t feel the same about passing from this life to the next. I like to use the
term “The Promise” that the Lord gives to everyone…that Christians will immediately be with loved
ones who’ve gone on, when our turn comes.
King David used that consolation we see in 2nd Samuel 12:23,
after his son by Bathsheba died; “I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.” And of course Jesus
showed the same comfort to us, as He hung on the Cross, when he told the thief hanging beside Him, who had become a believer
there, “Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.”
I’ve written about that in an earlier article, but for those of you who didn’t see it, I’ll give
my interpretation of those words by Christ. “Today” means now…assuring us that we won’t be
put in a waiting area until some time in the future. And “shalt thou be with me” means that He will go to
the same place with this person who’s dying at His side.
And the Bible clearly shows that the word “Paradise” and
“Heaven” are the same place. Revelation 2:7 is enough to convince us: “He who has an ear, let
him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who conquers, I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which
is in the paradise of God.” And the tree of life serves double duty, also indicating that we’ll eat the
best of foods in Heaven.
The only ones who
should fear death, are those of you who haven’t given your heart to the Lord. I beg you to take care of that,
at this very moment. It’s the only time you’re guaranteed.
