Some say it is the biblical times of Revelations, while others scoff at such an idea and others are simply too tired from the daily grind to pay much attention. What I do know for sure is there is something major taking place in our world today. People around the globe are tuning in, marching, protesting, or supporting one person whose name happens to be Donald J. Trump. Why is this?
As I drifted off to sleep last night some thoughts crossed my mind revealing some startling similarities between our world today and the world some two thousand years ago. These are my personal musings as they came to me while in contemplation. In comparing Jesus’s time in teaching humanity about God to the Trump presidency time fighting for humanity’s peace and freedom there are some parallels that philosophically cannot be ignored.
There is a global uprising about one man. The people are divided. This man represents salvation to some while a great threat to others. There are unheard of, relentless attacks against this one man. The establishment is desperate to get rid of this man. The crowd has picked the corrupt thief over this man. The establishment chants crucify him, crucify him to ensure the people see he is the false prophet.
There is a tradition in my church to read the passion of Christ every Palm Sunday. The congregation plays the crowd. The priest plays Jesus. A narrator plays Pontius Pilate. As I participate in the crowd part chanting “Crucify Him, Crucify Him”, I am always humbled. What side of this would I have been on two thousand years ago? This man, Jesus, had committed no crime yet the Pharisees created trumped up charges to frame him, to incite the crowd against him, to forcefully remove him from ever threatening their way of life again.
The parallels of then compared to now are becoming clearer and clearer into view. Today, I chose which side of history I will stand on in my truth and it is in support of Donald Trump. I will not participate in his destruction or remain silent for this is my moment in history to say, “No, this man has done nothing wrong to be sentenced to crucifixion”.
My inner knowing tells me this man is a man of goodwill and fighting for the righteous. My inner knowing tells me some of the so called “conspiracy theories” are in fact truth thus the mainstream push to discredit them so aggressively. Sometimes I wonder what if it is all a hoax and it is not real? Am I blinded by my passionate desire for a new world of peace, freedom, and prosperity for all? Then I see the incredible overt aggression to squash one man and to squash me for my own critical thinking about this man. There is something amiss, something hidden, something not adding up which only confirms my beliefs.
Are you familiar with the Saul into the apostle Paul story in the bible? The basics are Saul was a sinner who went against Jesus, his teachings, and his followers. Jesus blinded Saul with a bright light on the road to Damascus. Saul’s heart was converted to love and understanding on his journey to Damascus. Jesus challenged him to take up the gospel and to share the good news with others. The take-away from the story is that people can change. God forgives us our sins. When we know better, we do better – hopefully. This scenario of sinner to saint, hate to love, revenge to forgiveness has been happening throughout history for those who wish to judge Trump on his past rather than his present.
And yet, the condemnation, hypocrisy and mockery sadly continue against those who we judge to not be worthy. There is the mockery of the orange man by those who oppose racism and discrimination of any sort although they do not see they are performing the act they profess to detest. Then we have the hypocrisy of the elected leaders saying do as I say not as I do, while criticizing Trump for not espousing truths he does not believe in and will not be doing himself so he will not dictate them to others. The press and big tech condemn him daily for no reason other than to suppress him and his followers. Is this sounding familiar?
One man saying he believes in peace, freedom and prosperity for all – not a select elite or elected few – but for all people. He believes in the constitution, law, and order. He stands for all faiths as well as the faithless. His initiatives have been for all people regardless of race, creed, age or orientation. He supports legal immigration. He opposes tyranny and the oppression of people by big government, big corporations, and big banks. He has become synonymous to standing up against the system. This has people marching in support for Trump around the world – click here, here, here.
One man wrongly accused as he fights for the truth of the election fraud to be not only revealed but accepted by man. Again, people around the world want their voices and truth to be heard too. They see a man targeted and manipulated like them fighting back. They hope he wins because then maybe they can win against the establishment too. The proof and evidence are available to see, click here, here, and here. I have more if you want it, just ask.
The establishment continue their attacks taking his words out of context to juxtapose their own narrative to feed the crowd into a frenzy against him. Trump never said he supported white supremacy, he never said to use violence against another, he never was involved in Russian collusion or a quid pro quo with Ukraine or asked for votes he had not already had the proof that were his but switched. One has to ask why is one man accused of so many crimes in just four years as President yet always proven to be innocent in the end?
Christ’s second coming is eminent however it is not Christ himself but the Christ consciousness of us as humanity. Jesus was the man who lived on earth. He ascended into Christ. Christ is the risen Jesus. It is the Christ consciousness we are in the process of ascending into here on earth. In the Christ consciousness we recognize we are all one. One in the body of Christ, God, our Source. Whether you believe in the Jesus story or not, you are still moving into Christ consciousness for that is the divine plan for all of humanity to come to know: We are one; We are love; We are light; We are truth. It is our time to take our power back as divine beings of our creator that we embody our truth and live this truth in freedom, peace and prosperity for all. There are even those who prophesied about the one who would come to awaken us for this purpose, click here, here, here, and here.
I am not saying that Trump is the second coming of Christ. I am saying that maybe he is the divine catalyst to get us ready. For God does work in mysterious ways, most often choosing those among us we might least expect. In spiritual awakening we are challenged to love both the light and dark side of humanity for both sides make up the whole.
So, again, I must ask myself how one man can cause such a level of disdain among the elected and the elite in our global society? What is it that they hate or better yet fear so much about one man? History is being made, biblical times are being recorded, what side are you going to choose? Are you going to join the crowd to shout crucify him to see him suffer more? Are you willing to go within yourself to find the truth that might be calling you?
