O clap your hands, all peoples;
Shout to God with the voice of joy.
For the LORD Most High is to be feared,
A great King over all the earth.
He subdues peoples under us
And nations under our feet (Ps. 47:1-3).

Of the 17 individuals that competed in the Republican primary for the 2016 presidential nomination, Donald Trump was my 17th choice. He was dead last on my preferred list of Republican presidential hopefuls. However, my reticence toward Trump was quite different from the reasons for which most other conservative Christians disliked him.

111116-blog-woods-quote-1It was not so much his potty talk or hedonistic lifestyle that bothered me. Rather, it was the fact that on virtually every issue he has, either by way of financial donations, public statements or personal writings said something different in comparison to where he claims he now stands on that same issue today.[1]

I learned a long time ago that the first rule of politics is that, in order to ascertain the true values of any politician, it is necessary not so much to listen to what they say in recent speeches but, rather, to watch what they do. When you look at the things that Donald Trump has said and done over the course of his entire adult lifetime, you quickly see that he has been on both sides of every major issue. Simply put, after conducting this analysis, I never felt that Donald Trump was a true political conservative. His overall actions better fit the platform of the Democratic Party than the Republican Party. Thus, I felt it was a mistake for the Republican Party to make him their presidential nominee.

The reality of this apparent mistake was further heightened by the fact that I never really felt that Donald Trump could win the general election. His personal negatives, in comparison to that of his primary opponents, were simply too high to make him viable and electable by the American people. If the truth be known, I was even preparing to write a blog article telling the Republican Party, “I told you so,” after what I considered would be Donald Trump’s inevitable loss in the general election. I was wrong. Not only did I not have to write that article, but I am grateful for the fact that I did not have to write it. Here is why.

111116-blog-woods-quote-2Whatever negative thing might be said about Donald Trump, let us keep one thing in mind: he is not Hillary Clinton.

Who is Hillary Clinton? She is the spiritual daughter of Saul Alinsky. Hillary not only devoted her collegiate thesis to the topic of Alinsky, but she was also personally discipled and mentored by him. Alinsky’s personal political philosophy advocates intentionally creating chaos in a culture or nation, thereby necessitating the strong arm of government for the purpose of a top-down remaking of that society in a Marxist image. By constantly provoking agitation and conflict between racial and socioeconomic groups, Alinsky postulated that big government would then be volitionally called upon to reshuffle society in terms of martial law and mandatory wealth redistribution.

And-CoverThis “management by crisis” tactic is one of the key strategies that the Communists have consistently used to topple one government after another for the purpose of ushering in worldwide Communism. Such a political philosophy, of course, is right out of the pit of hell as evidenced by the fact that Alinsky dedicated his political treatise, entitled Rules for Radicals to none other than Satan himself.

Notice what Alinsky wrote on the dedication page of his book:

Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins — or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.[2]

As problematic as Donald Trump may be from an ideological point of view, his problems pale in comparison to the type of Satanic agenda that Hillary would have imposed upon the United States of America had she assumed the highest office in the land.
