I know what you’re thinking. This guy thinks the World Series has something to do with the upcoming election. Well, stranger things have happened.
I explained it all in the previous post. If you have not read it you can find it here.
The gist was that the Red team, the Boston Red Sox, represented the Republican Party. The Blue team, the Dodgers, represented the Democrat Party. Some prophetic voices have said there will be a great Republican victory in the 2018 Midterm Election. Since the Red Sox won, and won decidedly, it appears to be yet another sign confirming the prophecies.
There was supposed to be a Blue Wave, meaning a great Democrat victory. As we grew closer to the election everyone began to understand that was not going to happen. That fact alone is a Republican victory. But as it was in the Presidential Election two years ago, when most of the experts predicted the very opposite of what eventually happened, it could be the case that the tide will continue turning until next Tuesday.
According to a prophecy made many months ago by Mark Taylor, who I introduced to some of you in the last post, this tide will turn into a Red Tsunami, meaning a great Republican victory. This can only mean they will win against all odds and retain both the House and the Senate. It already looks like they will keep the Senate, something unforeseen only a matter of weeks ago. Very few, at this writing, think they have much of a chance keeping the House.
Boston won a decisive victory. In the playoffs, they won the first round against the Yankees three games to one, winning the series in New York. The Yankees were an excellent team. They then beat last year’s champions, the Houston Astros, four games to one, again winning the series on the road in Houston. The Astros were an even better team and the choice of most to repeat. Then Boston beat the Dodgers in the World Series, also four to one, in Los Angeles. Some are calling them the best Red Sox team in history. While some experts thought they would do well, I don’t think any of them thought they would do that well.
This sounds familiar…

The 2018 Midterm Election is two weeks away. This first in a series of articles will delve into several high-impact subjects touching on prophecy that have been brewing for a while. Read on.
RED SOX RED AND DODGER BLUE
The Baseball World Series starts tonight. In a very strange twist of fate, an extremely interesting coincidence, or a shocking harbinger of the coming election, the stage is set for a Red team and a Blue team. The Boston Red Sox will host the LA Dodgers of Dodger Blue fame. I know there are several Red teams and Blue teams and maybe this is not so unusual. But these two teams, both of which have very long histories in the game, have only met each other in a World Series once before, in 1916. It was the first World Series for the Dodgers. Boston beat them four games to one.
Now here we are again over a century later. The Dodgers were known as the Robins back then and hailed from Brooklyn. The Brooklyn franchise began in 1883 and was known by several names until becoming fully established as the Dodgers in 1932. The Brooklyn Dodgers moved west to Los Angeles and played their first season there in 1958. The current Dodger Stadium opened in 1962. It might seem strange, but that ballpark is now the third-oldest park in major league baseball. As near as I can tell without going into deep research the Dodgers have worn blue since at least 1910.
The Red Sox have the oldest park. Fenway Park opened in 1912. The team has done a great job, first, of keeping the park instead of tearing it down and building a new one, which they were close to doing several years ago, and second, of revamping and modernizing the park while retaining its early feel and dimensions. The Boston franchise was formed in 1901. In the first seven seasons they actually wore dark blue socks and had no official nickname. Their unofficial name was the Americans. It was not until the 1908 season when the team officially became the Boston Red Sox and wore red stockings.
REPUBLICAN RED AND DEMOCRAT BLUE
I’m not going to study this subject regarding origin, but at some point the two major parties became associated with these two primary colors. Regarding the upcoming midterm election, the political party not holding the White House traditionally does very well. This is why several months ago we began hearing the term “Blue Wave” in that the Democrats would have great success. But in addition to this there have been a few voices saying not so fast. One voice in particular has been prophesying of not just Republican success but a “Red Tsunami.” Such an occurrence would be highly unlikely, of course. But this same man prophesied that Donald Trump would become the next President of The United States. But he prophesied this in April of 2011, over four years before Donald Trump announced.
The man’s name is Mark Taylor. I’m sure many of you have heard of him. He continues to insist that these words he is receiving are prophetic and that he is not predicting anything by his own power or ability. And he has never wavered from this prophecy even though he first received it, from what I can presently ascertain, at least several months ago. Maybe some of you know the exact date. The point, however, is that he is saying that something will happen that is not supposed to happen and has not happened in probably a very long time. This time around, the midterms are supposed to belong to the Democrats. But he says the opposite will happen.
We can all recall the many experts, including the former president, who all pretty much said that Donald Trump would never be elected President. Snowballs had a better chance in hell.
They all said this very arrogantly and condescendingly. Of course, the big boys have been selecting their presidents for many decades in the guise of Americans electing them. If you control both parties and own both parties then whoever gets elected doesn’t matter. Both are mere puppets.
So maybe what will transpire in two weeks really will be a Red Tsunami. Even Bernie Sanders said yesterday that there will be no Blue Wave and that it will be very close. The same thing happened two years ago. A definite sure fire victory would happen for Clinton but as we got closer to Election Day it began to tighten up. That did not stop many ongoing crazy predictions that never came true.
So now we have the added twist with the Baseball World Series. If there is to be a Red Tsunami I would assume that means the Red Sox will beat the Dodgers again as they did 102 years ago. We’ll see.

In the movie Field of Dreams, Annie kept asking Ray, “What’s this got to do with baseball?” Ray had been doing much research on the mythical 1960s activist Terrance Mann and was becoming convinced he must meet the man for some unknown reason.
So some may be wondering what American elections have to do with real Christianity. Some may also be wondering why I posted a picture of an American flag at half mast before the Capitol Building with my previous post The Fix Is In: Delusion Illusion (Part 4).
I want everyone to know I made the post in the morning on election day having no knowledge of how the voting would go, but like everyone else, knew the Republicans would pick up some seats and by doing so might at least curtail somewhat the destruction of the last several years.
Some continue to believe that the actual results, a Republican slam dunk, was not so much a referendum against the Democrats and the President, but simply an expression of great anger among voting Americans to throw the bums out, whoever they were, and bring in new people.
Others believe Americans had somehow seen the error of their ways in electing so many Democrats and granting them so much power, only to have the country continue to suffer with a relatively poor economy, the continued destruction of the middle class, and exponential debt in which the country now owes almost 18 trillion dollars with nothing whatsoever being done to change course.
Having the benefit of being around a while and dating my foray into closely following national politics to before I was in high school, I have obviously seen this kind of thing many times over. I have seen the Republicans garner great gains in the past. I remember the landslide elections of Ronald Reagan. I remember when Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon lied their way into the presidency and brought so many of their respective party members with them. I have seen a terribly gullible American public buy into the flat-out garbage of so many candidates from both parties over several decades.
So I decided to put the flag at half mast before knowing the outcome of election day because I knew that no matter what happened nothing would change for the better.
Nothing ever changes for the better regarding the overall health of the nation with these guys except very briefly and only in fits and starts. And one thing we can always be sure of is this: Whenever we have the chance to do something greatly dramatic for the betterment of the country, to change course to a much better America, something always comes along and stops the progress that rarely ever has a chance. And every time this happens it is done by someone with a Democrat or Republican label.
And people keep electing Republicans and Democrats.
Yet no matter how many times I say there is no longer any real effective difference in these political parties and has not been in a very long time, people look at me with a blank stare and mutter a television sound bite as if I have not a clue. But facts are facts. We are in the great, gigantic, ridiculous, sorry, rotten, evil mess we are in because of Democrats and Republicans. The members of these two parties caused all of it and continue to cause it and as long as they remain what they are nothing will ever change.
So even though the Republicans have won a great victory because the voters are demanding great change, nothing substantial will change. Of course, there will be the appearance of change. Very small and very incremental change may happen and will be presented as major change. But when either one of these parties had all the power and could do anything they wanted, they certainly did not make the country better but instead made it much, much worse. And it always happened at such times that Americans went along with the deviations (were duped) and later saw that they were duped.
Take the abortion issue, for example. I have been following this since abortion was made legal in 1973. Since that time, over 50 million American babies have been aborted by many estimates. That is roughly one third of the population increase in America since that time. There were times when the supposed pro-life party, the Republicans, could have done something substantial but they never did. Why?
We have relatively young, naive pro-life advocates playing the losing game of trying to elect Republican presidents so such presidents will appoint pro-life Supreme Court justices but they never do so without also appointing pro-abortion justices. It happened with Ronald Reagan. It happened with both Bushes. Every time victory is there to grasp someone makes an idiot move and defeat is snatched from the jaws of victory.
Though I have been saying this for decades I have never had much of a platform, just like many of you who are reading this. But I read an article today that says this much better than I could and also contains some astounding facts. I encourage you to read the article found here.
The point of this posting that I write this morning is not to say great change for the better cannot come. I believe it must come and I believe it will. Those of you that have been following this blog know that I believe a national Great Awakening is in the early stages. I remain very optimistic. But I put my faith in the Lord Jesus and the millions of real Christians in this country He is working through.
But I am not optimistic because of many mainline American “Christians” whose spiritual deadness and lack of heart for God put themselves on the losing, pessimistic side, most of whom will never believe such a thing and will refuse to participate when it comes forth. And I am not optimistic at all by anything Washington DC will do. And I know for certain that trusting Republicans and Democrats to make the country better is a losing dream and always has been. I will say again that it is a very sad thing that so many Christians in America are duped into believing these people, watch them never follow through, elect a new batch and seeing them fail and never follow through, and do it over and over again.
The respective political parties know they can do anything they want and get away with anything they want because the pendulum will swing back in their favor after the other party violates trust. As long as Americans believe there is no third choice this will keep happening.
It is like visiting the same restaurant every night with only two items on the menu. Hmmm… Wonder what I’ll have tonight…
At some point one must make the leap into understanding that Washington has a different agenda—a MUCH different agenda. Elected candidates are certainly going there for something, but it never turns out to be why they were elected to go there when it comes to affecting real change for the better.
Since such is defined by so many in so many different ways, we must remember that the founding documents of this country that set a foundational tone contain truths that all honest people back and desire, and that a system of government was set up then to not only primarily guarantee freedom and liberty for the individual but greatly curtail the political machinations of evil, money-grubbing, hell-bound, greedy, live-for-this-world duplicitous liars, who only want to use Americans for their own ends.
And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. [2 Peter 2:3 KJV]
We will soon find out what these new Republicans in sudden power will do with the opportunity granted them by the American voter. Hopefully, maybe a few good things get done.
But if Americans threw the bums out this time around and really mean business, like Americans never have before, they will hold the Republicans’ feet to the fire and demand, every day, that they do what we want them to do, and not what their money masters tell them to do, as it has always happened in the past.
But because I’ve seen this movie so many times before, and because I know the plot by heart, and because I can see right through the lies of these people and know they never deliver, I also know the movie will end the same way it always does.
Field of Dreams? Sure. But Ray will first have to plow under the vast cornfield that is Washington DC.
