The events of last week have left our nation reeling. The Senate's confirmation of Joe Biden as president-elect shocked many believers and seemed to counter the words of the many prophets who said Trump would win no matter what. Thursday's violence at the Capitol and ensuing media madness have only seemed to escalate the divisions between us.
What do Christians do now? Prophet, author and end-times expert Michael Snyder spoke to Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines with words of both admonishment and encouragement. "What America ultimately needs more than anything else is Jesus. And that's the only hope for our future. You know, for the past four years, people in the Christian or the evangelical world have been putting so much passion and energy into politics. But ultimately, what we need to put our passion and energy into is our relationship with God and winning souls, because that's what really matters.
"And ultimately, the best-case scenario for a Trump presidency is that he would give the church cover to do what the church needs to do," Snyder says. "And that's to turn America back to God and win souls and win hearts. Because it wasn't Trump who was going to turn America around; it was only going to be the church. We've got to win hearts; we've got to turn people back to God; we've got to show people the wickedness of our ways—that we can't kill babies on an industrial scale; that we can't have gay marriage in our country; that we can't do all the things we've been doing, which we've talked about so frequently.
"We've got to turn back to God with all of our hearts and follow His ways because that's what made America great in the first place: that we were a Christian nation, and we followed the Lord," Snyder says. "And that's why we're in so much trouble today, because we've turned away from God."
