JESUS VISITS TRUMP TOWER
Old Doc is having nightmares about the future of America. America’s unique system of free elections to determine who will possess immense power and use it to guide a population of over three-hundred-thirty million people to a ‘better tomorrow for our children and grandchildren, has me in ‘night-time-sweats’, and I wake up fearful I’m just a step away from Satan’s pit of unquenchable Hell.
Evidently, the dye has been cast and the citizens of the country must choose between Hillary and Trump. Many Pilgrims might conclude that is ‘a place between a rock and a hard-spot’. Since we are governed by political powers that have openly rejected a biblical formula to govern by, all Pilgrims are left to discover which candidate best aligns itself with God’s word…if any.
Old Doc, a purveyor of biblical truth, thought it best to help his Pilgrims sort out this critical information so we can actively help God’s influence increase, rather than decrease. Since I’m ‘old as dirt’, and the majority of Pilgrims weren’t alive fifty years ago, when America first started a rapid retreat from a biblical foundation, my through examination of the two political parties and the present day candidates, can provide you with the wisdom you need to choose to honor God or honor Satan, as you cast your ballot in November.
Donald Trump this week/ Hillary Clinton next time!
The shabbily dressed bearded man looked out of place. A multitude of people snazzily dressed for work, hurriedly passed by. Most looked askance at the beggar, and quickly turned away as he smiled and greeted them: “Have a blessed day in the Lord,” he said, a bit too loudly. Most of the people frowned, some meekly said, “Thank you.” A few returned in kind his greeting.
The limousine pulled up and an entourage of Secret Service personnel jumped out of the limo and manned the door and cleared a path. The Doorman for the Trump Tower quickly greeted Mr. Trump, and swiftly moved towards the beggar. “Shoo, get out of here,” he admonished him. “Leave, do you hear me? Scat or I might lose my job,” he drew close.
Hustling to the entrance, smiling and greeting people who stopped to gander at him, his eyes fell upon the beggar. He didn’t say a word, but pointed to him. He cocked his head in his direction and his right thumb motioned for the Doorman to remove him immediately.
The Doorman moved to grab the beggar’s arm. “Donald my son, I’ve been waiting for you,” the strange looking man hollered above the din of the noise people and automobiles create on a New York street during mid-morning traffic.
Donald stopped in his tracks, and gazed upon this man who called him ‘Donald’; it was as if he knew him. The Doorman pulled his arm.
“No, no, leave him be,” Donald instructed. “Do I know you? I don’t know you, do I? His voice softened and his demeanor changed. He gazed in silence for a few seconds. In a quizzical tone, “Do you know me?”
Smiling, he reached out his hand and shook Donald’s. “I knew you before you were in your mother’s womb,” he told him.
Donald’s eyes opened wide and his lips began to tremble. “Is that you…Lord?” he asked as his voice filled with emotion.
He put his hand on his shoulder, squeezed a little, and winked. “I’ve been waiting for you, and think we need to spend some ‘quality time’, don’t you? Perhaps, you could give me a tour, first,” he added, lifting up his head and motioning with this hand to the uber sophisticated Trump Tower.
Emitting a sigh of relief, Donald smiled. “It would give me great pleasure to show you where I live,” he said.
Filling the air with a shrill whistle of admiration, “Old Solomon himself may have suffered a quiver of envy,” Jesus remarked, gazing up at the opulence of the entrance’s décor. For the next few minutes, Donald gave Jesus his ‘personal’ tour, highlighting its beauty and providing a unique descriptive detailing of the five ‘Ws”.
“I understand your family lives here, also,” Jesus said.
“Yes, we live in the Penthouse on the fifty-fifth floor,” he replied.
As the elevator rose, “I understand it cost a million to live here, is that right?”
“That’s for our cheaper places,” Trump replied, smiling.
“I understand you told people your favorite book was the Bible,” is that correct?” Donald blushed a bit.
“Yes, I did say that.” He coughed nervously. “I confess I don’t read it like I should,” he added, as if he had just come out of the ‘Confessional box”.
Jesus chuckled. “At least our book is number one…it is even above Norman’s ‘Positive Thinking,” or the Art of the Deal,” he remarked, smiling slyly.
The elevator stopped, Donald ushered Jesus into his home. “Twenty-five million, your home cost that much, is that correct? Old Solomon and you run with the same money crowd.”
“Commit unto the Lord your plans and it shall succeed,” Donald said.
“Why don’t we go to your private office where we can get better acquainted,” Jesus suggested.
“Yes, that is a good idea,” Donald said. “Before we set down, let me show you the panoramic view. It’s silly of me, but every time I gaze out this window, it’s as if the entire world is at my feet. With your help, of course, I’m going to make America great again,” he declared.
“I recall I was tested and I too was offered all that you possess, and much, much more, if I’d just serve the correct Master, according to our enemy, Satan. “Where is your heart my son?”
Stammering some, “I like to think of myself as a ‘good man’. I know about that ‘heart and treasure’ expectation.” Silence filled the room. “I’m working on it, honest to God,” he added.
Standing beside Donald viewing the scene, “One can certainly see all ‘roof-tops’, he looked at Donald. “You might want to take a cue from David, looking at ‘roof-tops’ was what got him into a heap of trouble,” Jesus added. Trump coughed nervously. “I guess you didn’t read the scripture in Genesis bout one man and one woman cleaving and becoming ‘one flesh’,” Jesus added. Trump stood still, his eyes stinging.
“I’m sure you are wondering why I have come for a visit,” Jesus opened the dialogue. I have come to help you win the election,’ he added.
Smiling broadly, “You have come to help me win! Wow! You don’t know how great that makes me feel. On second thought, you’re Omniscient; you know everything, don’t you.”
“America has become Israel. From its biblical foundation, it soon tired of my Commandments, and they chased after gods that were ‘dead’ gods, false ones that taught philosophical man he could be his own creator and his own god. Then, they sacrificed their ‘first born’ to gods made of flesh, or wood and stone, now, America sacrifices them, not on an altar, but at the sucking sound of a vacuum.
‘That’s why I have changed and I’m now Pro-life,” Donald interrupted.
“Pro-life’! How is it possible for anyone to witness the birth of a child, and decide they have become a god, and can choose life or death for the innocent? The un-repented mother will surly spend an eternity in Hell,” he said. “It would have been better for those who kill the child to have a mill-stone around their neck and drown than harm a child.”
‘Don’t tell anyone, but I have my stupid moments. That certainly was one,” Donald confessed with a big sigh.
“I’m interested in your definition of “Make America Great Again,” Jesus said. Donald was silent, and he studied the Lord’s face.
Stuttering just a little, “I, I’m, it is a slogan to excite the citizens of America about moving it back closer to its original ideas when it was first founded,” he finally said.
Since your Congress, President, and Supreme Court of the past thirty years have consistently rejected my Father, his holy word, and my divinity, while America’s Founding Fathers leaned upon its wisdom, championed its principles, and ensured it would be woven into the fabric of its society, especially its educational institutions, how can your presidency change that?”
Trump answered. “I admit it won’t be easy. I’m positive we can take the first step to restoring some of this perceived darkness by appointing a different type of Supreme Court justice. “
“The Bible back in schools, prayers for all students and teachers when they want it, your Court Houses and jury rooms structured around an oath using the Bible, my Ten Commandments displayed publically, reversing Sam Sex Marriage. These things your election will produce?”
“Not so much,” Donald answered. “America has become less enchanted with the Bible.”
“So, how do you make America Great Again if you don’t accomplish these things?”
“I’m going to concentrate on ‘protecting our borders’, creating jobs for millions of the unemployed, and I’m going to build our military up so we will be recognized as the ‘Super-power’ we once were. We’ll make business and trade deals that will be favorable to America workers instead of working against them. I will energize our economy. We will move away from failed Socialist economic programs and rely upon our Capitalist economic model to revitalize our economy so the Middle Class will have a better chance at success,” he said.
“Wow! That is some litany of accomplishments.”
“And, I’m going to make the rest of the world respect America again,” Trump added.
“Donald, let me ask you a question. Is the America today better than the America, say after World War II? Are its children better educated? Do they know and live the Golden Rule better today or back then? Are your elected officials’ people of integrity more so today rather than then? Do your people lean upon the wisdom of the Bible’s principles and truths better today rather than then?”
“I know, I know, America is far worse off now because the Bible has been rejected as a book filled with the necessary wisdom to solve America’s ills, material and spiritual.”
“Duh, do you think? Even the people sang ‘Nearer my God to thee when the Titanic was sinking. You do realize America is a ‘spiritual’ Titanic, don’t you?”
“Some of my former Republican opponents have mentioned that to me.”
“I notice you don’t talk about the Bible and its importance to America’s history. I haven’t heard you lend your support for ‘Christian’ education for the poorest of the poor in your country, why not? Is it part of your plan to ‘win baby’ first, and then use your political authority and influence to bring about these needed changes?”
“’Win first baby’, yeah, that’s it. When I win, I will then tackle these thorny issues. If I’m going to make America Great Again, I suppose it will require God to be made great again.” He gazed at Jesus. “I have to truthful Lord, it isn’t going to happen over-night; It may take many years.”
“What if America doesn’t have much time?”
Donald sucked in a deep breath, “Does that mean your ‘end-time’ is soon?”
“I don’t know, only my Father in heaven knows, but, he did send Ishmael’s kin once. Who knows, he may send them again. Since America has rejected the Creator’s benevolent hand of mercy and his nearly unquenchable blessings, perhaps a ‘show and tell’ demonstration about how he feels about being betrayed by those who once knew his name and called upon him for every decision, have lost their ‘first love’. Perhaps, seventy years or seven-hundred in spiritual darkness might do the trick, don’t you agree?”
Coughing nervously and loudly, “Point noted and point well taken,” he said.
“If you are going to be the straw that stirs the country’s political drink, you better judge that by how much you can change the people’s hearts away from my arch enemy, Satan, and closer to my Father’s. He who isn’t for me is against me. On my ‘Day of Judgment’ all will know this truth.”
“It is a great political slogan, don’t you think so?”
“To me, it depends upon what those words actually mean,” Jesus replied.
“In a ‘nut-shell’, it means that ‘Joe Citizen’ recognizes that ‘We the people’ means the citizens, not Congress and the President is the ‘boss’ of America. America needs to return to its Founding Fathers’ sacred documents that were rooted in God’s Commandments. I’m going to make this happens as we change the tenor and political make-up of the Supreme Court. We are going to get the Federal Government out of this nation’s education system. We are going to give this type of power back to the states, and allow each state’s citizens to provide direction for their children. Washington has proven it can’t manage anything with excellence. Everything they touch becomes more refuge for the ‘dung heap’ of all other failed Government led programs.
“Crooked Hillary’s’ It takes a village to raise a child has left America with a multitude of children, proportionally greater in the Black Society, where it seems nobody is raising a child; but, her mantra is doing a fine job of filling up our prisons, decreasing the number of students that finish high school, and adding to the Nation’s national debt as our government forces tax payers to pay for Generational Welfare Families, and now, illegals that sneak into our country and become ‘law breakers’, and then demand taxpayers support their families, while choosing to remain loyal to their Native country, and demanding English become a ‘second language’ in our schools.” These un-invited aliens now fly their country’s flags and fill up our streets with protests. They claim the rights to our unique ‘freedoms’, but reject our traditional heritage of personal responsibility. They have incited many legal aliens to join their rag-tag group of dissidents that would probably be jailed or shot if they chose to protest the government in their Native countries, publicly.
“Those things are well detailed, and for America, quite important,” Jesus said. “It points out the problems, what are your solutions?”
“Well, I’m no Messiah,” he flashed a smile, “But, I’m going to do all I can to bring the Bible’s influence back into our public venues. Where the government can exercise its authority, I will be a friend to people of the Bible. I will endeavor to appoint Constitutional, forward thinking judges to the Supreme Court that realized the ‘Founders” of this nation were wiser than the rulers of today. If we can re-visit some of their decisions that have burned a hole through a majority of America’s citizens and nearly left them spiritually dead, we may be able to correct the Atheist course America has navigated for the past fifty years.”
“Donald my son, I’ve got some great new slogans you can run on: “Make America Great Again: Back to The Bible; Ancestry. Com: Discover our Founding Fathers and learn of our Spiritual Heritage; Socialists Liberals live in darkness, invite them to step into the Light: Jesus’ Word: the Bible; we have nothing to fear if the Lord is on our side; America cannot serve two masters: God of Creation or Satan who steals souls.”
“Not wanting to pour salt on a wound, but Lord, half of the people who claim there are Christians wouldn’t support those slogans.”
Laughing loudly, nearly out of control, and suddenly weeping, Jesus replied, “My people who once knew my name no longer call my name. Donald, you are right; but, I hate to admit it.”
“Lord, I hate it too. Perhaps, I can encourage America to “Give God a Try”. I’ll try that slogan. Do you think it will help?”
“Just like Chicken soup huh, it can’t hurt,” the Lord smiled. “Suggestion, tell the people you have been spending more time on your knees and seeking the counsel found only in the Bible. After-all, President Lincoln told the world he wore out his knees in prayer to the God of Creation, and that no man could call himself educated and wise if he didn’t know the Bible
I quite sure America’s elected officials are little more than dunces when it comes to the wisdom found only in my book.”
“Lord, I’ll take that under advisement,”
‘One more thing before I go. I suggest you heed the Apostle’s instructions and daily gird your loins and put on the full armor of God. Remember, America’s battle isn’t with ‘flesh and blood’, but with the prince of the air: Satan. He wants to break, steal and destroy all the good this country has accomplished.”
