9 Reasons Why Trump Is Rising

I have to admit that I thought Donald Trump would have fallen in the polls by now.  Even though his star is still rising, I still think he’s a poor choice for president.

I just read an interesting article by Steve Deace that lists the 9 reasons behind Trumps surprising strength.  You can read the article here: 9 Reasons Why Trump Is Rising

Aspiring Wannabes

m_1351889779In a recent article by Charles Krauthammer, he examined the presidential contenders and their chances of winning the nomination.  According to Krauthammer:

  • The solid, but no sizzle Jeb Bush has a 25% chance of winning.
  • Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker also has a 25% of winning.
  • Because Marco Rubio has a proven track record in foreign affairs he has a 35% chance of winning.
  • The rest of the 15% is spread among the remaining wannabes.

Regardless of Krauthammer’s prognostication of the presidential odds, it’s a sure bet these contenders will never make mole hills out of the mountains of problems they face unless they get down on their knees in prayer.

When it comes to the subject of prayer and power, 2C714 is much more explosive than C4:

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves, pray, search for me, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear their prayer from heaven, forgive their sins and heal their country.”  ~2 Chronicles 7:14 (2C714)

Think about the words of Solomon and then compare them to the climate in which you live:  “Righteousness lifts up a nation, but sin is a disgrace in any society (Proverbs 14:34).”

Isn’t it time that we as a nation turn away from sin and turn our voices up in prayer to God?
