The following versus can be quite troubling when it comes to the presidency of Joe Biden. We know that he is not a good man nor a good president. He has done much damage to our economy and our position on the world’s theater. We even question whether it was a legitimate election that put him in the White House. With these things being said, why did God allow him to become president? After you read these verses, allow me to make some suggestions.
“Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord’s sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;” 1 Peter 2: 13
“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.” Romans 13:1
Here is the first thought:
Biden’s election was the natural result of probable criminal activity about which most of us were unaware. Call it for what you wish, but what happened caused him to be elected. Now, our task is to be sure that future elections are not corrupt.
Here is the second thought:
With the burden and stress generated from the White House onto the general population of America, there are those who have become more active in the process of elections. Hopefully, the anger that exists among our citizens will drive us closer to God and for us to be more serious about the events of our daily life.
Here is the third thought:
The above two thoughts are likely true. However, in my opinion there is a much more important reason why God allowed Biden to sit in the Oval Office. Many people speculate that we are approaching the time of the rapture in which believers are caught up in the air to be with Christ in heaven. This leaves only the unbelievers to deal with the consequences. The most major consequence will come from the appearance of the Antichrist.
Under the rule of the Antichrist during the Tribulation many terrible things will happen. The area around the Mediterranean Sea will be the focal point of these events.
Take into consideration that America cannot be found anywhere in prophecy. This is an important notation in biblical study. There needs to be a weak America so that there would be no complication for the appearance of the Antichrist and the establishment of his rule. If we had a strong leader such as President Trump, America would intervene in the troubles on that side of the world. People currently are saying that in regard to the war of aggression against the Ukraine.
In my opinion, this is another step toward the coming of the Lord. While prophecies are being fulfilled, there is no place on the world theater for a strong America.
We can take this in two ways. We cannot allow the weakness of America to bring depression upon us. Or we can rejoice that this is another evidence that our beloved Christ will be with us soon.
