I received an email from a reader who was a bit upset by some of our commentary. While I will withhold the name of the individual, I am going to share the email and my response as it may benefit our audience.

Readers Email:

I don’t think you should be so political. You know that romans 13 says that God has in control who he wants in control. Why can’t you accept that Trump is our president and quit your slander against him. You were not elected by the people. You are suppose to report the world news and events, not give your opinions, I don’t need another hate Trump 24/7. I subscribed to get some news finally instead of all the Trump bashing. I am disappointed that I get it here also.

My Response: Reader,

Good morning and thank you for reaching out.

I certainly understand Romans 13, we actually have a Bible Question on this subject titled, Is God In Control Of The World? I think this article is worth your time as well, The Destruction of Our Nation and the Ballot Box.

However, do you honestly think the Israelites appreciated being in bondage in Egypt even though God ordained it? Do you think they appreciated being in bondage in Babylon though God ordained it?

Not quite, and the Bible makes that clear, even though God appointed those wicked leaders. We both know why God did it, to bring His people back inline. Something to think about…

If you feel I bash the President, you should have been around when Obama was President. I am less political and more realistic. I do not cling to any political party, I simply look at the actions of our leaders and see if they line up with the Bible.

Are their fruits good or bad?

If their fruits are bad, I am going to tell the people. I am going to tell the people how their actions tie into Scripture. When our President says he is going to lower taxes, stop illegal immigration and stop the wars, and then he does the exact opposite, I am not going to support such a leader.

I am not going to support a leader who held up the LGBT flag during his campaign and sold LGBT shirts for a buck. I cannot do that.

While we are told to pray for all men, including those in authority, God also said,

Jeremiah 7:16
16 “Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up cry nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to me: for I will not hear thee.”

Read the prior verses and it becomes clear, we do not support or pray for those who are doing wrong by God.

Let me further the point,

1 Timothy 2:1-3
1 “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;”

2For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.”

3 “For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;”

We are to pray for all men, including those in authority.

Pray for what?

Pray that we as citizens of the nation or organization can lead a peaceable life in Godliness and honesty.

If our leaders are not doing that, if they are not living and leading the nation by God, we are not expected to support them.

A final word.

This site is World Events and the Bible, over the years our readers have made it known they want more of our opinion on the news so they can understand what is going on in the world and how it ties into the Bible. Anyone can copy and paste or post a news link, not everyone can necessarily comment on the news with Biblical insight. So we are going to continue to do what we feel led to, and what our readers have asked us to do.

I hope this has now become more clear to you, have a fantastic day.

Thank You,

Brandon T. Ward

Most of the time, I receive really nice emails from folks. Yet, there are times when I receive what I call, “Nastygrams”. Today, I received a Nastygram which I will share

It’s almost comical how people are so easily “offended” by mere discussion or opinion. The Tavistock training has taken effect well. Jesus spoke up against the Pharisees. John spoke against Herod. Paul spoke to Agrippa. Comments and opinion are normal.

The fight against free speech is also showing progress with the too political argument. If I speak about abortion am I too political? Does it depend on which side of the argument you support?

Certain topics and opinion has been vilified and made off limits to allow the agenda to proceed to the goal. Anyone should be able to see that over the years and centuries. The acceleration of this agenda in the last 20 or even 5 years should be obvious. The tipping point will be reached. That is when the agenda will be fully accepted with Christianity in the cross hairs literally with full governmental support and influence. It should be obvious what has happened and whose goals are being achieved. Being offended is like taking the bait in the trap.

Tipping point. I’m not offended by discussion or opinion. The entire bible gives Gods opinion.

Some people have eyes to see and ears to heard and some does not. (They are blinded for their own good) action speaks louder than words.

The question is not: Is Trump Gods man in office? It is, has God ever lost control of what he created. No he merely gave up control for a time to prove a point or turn destiny in our direction. You know we are in the end times and that The Old world order has to die and the New World Order has to rise. Trump will bring about the end and I say Praise God who is Worthy!

Thankyou Brandon for all of your hard work and for your desire for truth! I still believe that leftover Representatives from the left, judges etc.had a major effect on those promises not kept! Also, when I say for his purpose, I mean just that! Even if it means “Judas”. I love World Events and the Bible. I share this valuable info on a daily basis! Thanks again! ❤

I thought as christians we were suppose to discuss things to get to the truth of all things. as christians we may not always agree on everything but i believe this is how we come to the truth. sometimes the truth is hard to swallow. i use to support Israel and for the life of me i couldn’t figure why people didn’t like Israel. it took many years of research to find out the “real” truth, and you know i was so heart broken to think i was deceived. most everything is political anymore and the politicians have made it that way, people fighting against each other, God does not want us to be fighting between ourselves but satan sure does.

Great comments Brandon. As i have stated before, i voted for trump and was a firm believer in him, but as far as i can see, he has not kept one of his promises. making America great again does not mean, you let all the illegals come in and get free medical, housing, food and what ever else they desire, who do you think is going to pay for it? and when the economy takes a dive, do you think you are going to be safe? when you are given free “stuff” and that dries up, where do you think they are going to get that food? when there is none. what about his Evangelica christians, are they true christians, i believe they are christian zionist, and they sure don’t believe in “God”. and what about the church and state thing?and why are we fighting Israel’s wars for them? and why has he let monsanto do what ever they want, knowing full well it is poison to all of us. There is no two party system, it is all one big joke passed off to the american people to believe there is. All this talk about impeachment is one big joke, they are keeping the american people occupied while they are making deals behind closed doors. they are probably all laughing at all of us because they think we are stupid and don’t know any better. we have taken “God” out of everything and now america will fall just like the roman empire, that is how far we have come. i guess i better leave it at that, before i get into too much trouble here.

The democrat party has stopped Trump from fulfilling promises. So I believe that you do seem to be bias. I see him differently, I see him trying to bring God back, trying to stop the murder of babies! Perhaps you are being to judgemental! Unless you know his heart! God uses people in his own way! I have no doubt God put him in office for his purpose! Do you believe in forgiveness? Do you believe in Divine Intervention?
