Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News
The man elected President of the US will play a key role in the prophetic scenario that is found in Bible prophecy.
After almost three years of campaigning, the presidential elections in the US are about to be completed. Hundreds and millions of dollars have been spent to promote and or denounce one candidate or the other in this period of historic spending in this presidential election. It is expected that at the end of election day, a record number of people will have cast their vote for their choice for president. This process, the election of the American leader to take the US into the future, is a part of God's plan to lead the world into His plan for the future as found in Bible prophecy.
God instituted human government 4,500 years ago as recorded in Genesis 9:6. God instructs Bible-believing Christians to be obedient to those elected and He reminds all of us that He, God is the One who puts people in their political positions, Romans 13:1. The Lord reveals in Revelation 17:17 that He will use world leaders to have His will played out in the Last Days.
The US Presidential election will indeed help set the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
