From Nov. 9, 2016, through most of March, half of America was elated, feeling optimistic about the future, thinking they had elected a leader who was listening to them, one who would be responsive to them about the future of the country.
That euphoric air was sucked out of their lungs by one shocking and disappointing event: Donald Trump’s betrayal on his promise to “immediately” repeal and replace Obamacare, a destructive piece of legislation that drove health-care insurance costs wild, put Washington in charge of Americans’ personal health-care choices and killed the country’s vibrant private-sector job-making machine.
Maybe Americans were too optimistic.
Maybe Donald Trump promised too much.
But that’s where we are today.
Politics is politics – whether a slick, political operative is at the helm or a new president still learning the ropes and facing massive opposition for trying earnestly to “drain the swamp” and “make America great again.”
Seeing Trump side on such a critical issue with the Washington establishment (Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, the insurance cartel) was certainly disappointing, but, it’s not the end of the world.
Aside from that momentous error – topped by Trump blaming the people who got it right in the House Freedom Caucus – the new president has done many things right.
And, as I learned many years ago, it’s foolhardy to count on politics and government alone to set our nation’s priorities on the right course.
In fact, there’s a much better way for Americans, who are supposed to be living in a self-governing nation – one of the few in the history of the world.
How are we supposed to behave in a self-governing nation? We’re supposed to govern ourselves. That can only happen if we are capable of self-government. And the only people who are do so under a God-breathed moral code known as the Ten Commandments.
Because I had a feeling we would, sooner or later, find ourselves in just such a predicament in 2017, I wrote and published a book in January that would have some answers for Americans.
It’s the culmination of Bible studies I’ve been engaged in for more than 40 years. Among other things, I’ve concluded that apart from God, mankind is pretty much helpless to figure out anything.
But God has it all figured out, and He has given us all the answers we need in the Bible.
Travel with Joseph and Elizabeth Farah to the Holy Land this November for the spiritual and political experience of a lifetime. Meet Benjamin Netanyahu and new U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman. Walk where Jesus walked. Glean new understanding about the Coming Kingdom of God on Earth. Recharge your faith!
Though he has, to a certain extent, predestined much of the Earth’s future history, He also invites us to help shape some of it – especially our own destiny and, even, through our individual actions and behavior, the destiny of nations.
While no one could accuse me of diminishing the impact and importance of politics and government, I have long believed mankind places far too much faith in these institutions and not enough in God and His ways.
So, if you are feeling demoralized, I have a prescription for you. Do you really want to see the prevailing of justice, prosperity, peace, righteousness and truth? Would you like to see the restoration of not only America but the entire world the way it was intended to be? Would you like to live in a Kingdom ruled and reigned over by God Himself?
That’s the ultimate destiny of the world. That’s where we are heading. And it’s time to get prepared for it.
But I’m not just hawking a book. Even if you think you understand everything I have to say, there’s something most of God’s people are not doing – not enough any way, me included.
Pray like the Bible instructs us to pray – with humility, repentance and seeking His face in spirit and truth.
This will not only give you peace and improve your life now, but it will ensure that you get to live in that Eden-like Kingdom in the future.
