It’s almost 2 a.m. on election night and Donald Trump has won the Presidency of the United States. The message from the American people seems clear: They do not like being bullied by media, Hollywood, and Washington elites.
Moreover, this historic victory was a resounding rejection of an administration that has governed arrogantly; that has sought to subvert the will of the people via judicial fiat and illegal immigration; and that has repeatedly exhibited a brazen disregard for the Constitution and historic foundations of the United States.
I have little doubt that a HRC presidency would have meant punitive measures against the Left’s most hated rival: evangelical Christians. We have already seen how the IRS can be weaponized and both Obama and Clinton have expressed a desire to end religious freedom in this country. This is because evangelicals and conservative Catholics are the only thing that stands between them and the total fulfillment of their social agenda. Obama established the beachhead; Hillary’s troops would have sought to finish the job.
But if the Left would have continued to wield power like a cudgel, Christians have the opportunity to use whatever time this election has bought for them to build bridges and restore the broken soul of this nation. Now, more than ever, is the time to fulfill the Great Commission. The problems facing this country will not be legislated out of existence.
Let us proclaim the love and hope of Jesus Christ to people of every political stripe. Let us wake the sleeping giant that is the American church.
