I would think like Jesuit order would do, perhaps keep it to lure in Jews to Catholicism?
I’ve studied Trump quite a bit over the years. To me, honestly Dan, the term “comes back” seems a bit foreign to me. Which may sound odd to you. The reason is that knowing quite a bit of how he tweeted, how he worked the dems, how he strategized, indicated to me that he had far more on the table going on that would not be affected adversely by what happened in November. In other words, we saw a president do more than any other modern president we have seen. That kind of person does not likely leave themselves so vulnerable.
An example would be “look at just some of what Trump left for them to HAVE TO undue by contrast.”
We were energy sufficient. Biden took jobs and gave oil power back to the middle east (when the USA became the number one oil producer in the world under Trump).
The border wall and building of it protected the country especially during a pandemic. There was 0 problem at the border under Trump (with negotiated care on the Mexico side as well). In two short months Biden created a border crisis where there was none.
Biden revoked a measure issued by former President Donald Trump following the Black Lives Matter protests that instructed federal law enforcement authorities to prosecute individuals who vandalized federal monuments and to withhold funding from local governments that didn’t prevent the destruction of their statues.
Trump’s foreign aid freeze was changed by Biden enabling unrest in the middle east through empowering terror networks.
Had Trump remained in power, his programs would have continued and certainly other items like the economy, jobs, the stock market etc would have been improved as well. But Trump was well aware of his opposition’s proclivities to their agenda in making America last. I would see imbedded in his strategy (should they cheat and win–which was obviously not off the radar) an easy way for America to see the deviance (afresh and with much more attention on it all) of the left by undoing what worked. And in contrast expose their plans plainly to America and the world. Whereas had Trump not won 2016, the world would have never really noticed. Now its shouted from the rooftops.
So I don’t think Trump exactly left. He left a quagmire for the left. That is for sure. But as the USA sees the Biden mess and concede America’s doom, I see it is that America is clear on what we see (only 4 months in) because the left are flagged or inked (like a bank dye pack explodes in stolen money bags so the robbers can’t spend the money). I don’t think they can pull it off. It would only be natural for Trump to return. The left is a mess and vulnerable right now.
I think it is possible that Ez 38 is seal 2. Although it might not be big enough for a seal (since it is just in the middle east and northern hemisphere area). I believe it could be though. My concern is that if there is no 1st seal and Ez 38 goes off…it may mean the tribulation is still many years out. However, yes, middle east war could be retaliation to conservative up-rise in the USA. If not, no doubt something horrid would.
Matt 24:24 and 2 Thes 2:11 are inferred for the midpoint and second half of the tribulation. Not the first 3.5 years as far as i can tell.
What I see I call rhetorical markers. The 666 building as likely nothing more than a “heads-up.” I have seen that video before. It did originally alarm me years ago when I thought Trump might be the AC. However, please consider Dan, Daniel 11:37. The AC would not have been so supportive of conservative Christianity. In addition, we do have a white horse (among 4 horses) to compare with in Zachariah 1 & 6. That white horse has historically been identified as Cyrus. What did Cyrus believe? He was into Zoroastrianism. Hardly partial to the Israeli God. Zoroastrianism - Wikipedia Yet God called him His shepherd, Isaiah 45. This would be matching of Trump’s mingling with heretics under the Christian unbrella likely. The 1st seal does not have to be holy.
