THE RED SOX BEAT THE DODGERS: BASEBALL MEETS THE 2018 MIDTERM ELECTION (2)

     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…

BLUE WAVE OR RED TSUNAMI? BASEBALL MEETS THE 2018 MIDTERM ELECTION (1)

.

       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.

         Until President Trump. 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.

          By the way, 102 is a multiple of 17. The 17th letter of the alphabet is Q.

LINK: Exactly eight years ago, in late August of 2010, the Lord spoke to me very clearly: “WE ARE IN THE EARLY STAGES OF A NATIONAL GREAT AWAKENING.”

THE GREAT AWAKENING: Election Proves Leap Forward

         There were many accurate prophecies of the election of Donald Trump, some going back years. Mr. Trump and his supporters faced much ridicule from the beginning and he was given no chance. This proved the existence of an arrogant hubris on the part of those who rabidly opposed him, in that they believed their position was one that could never be overcome.

         How do people wind up in such a condition? There are several theories. One is that sin makes people blind as bats. Another is that great pride always precipitates great falls, because one buys into the false belief of being beyond rebuke and the inevitable take down. It is a far better defense to know that victory can be lost in a heartbeat and one must therefore strive to fend off defeat rather than simply insist on the belief that defeat can never possibly happen.

         Millions of people ended up with great massive dripping gobs of runny eggs all over their faces last Tuesday night, and these millions included great portions of an evil elite intent on stomping on and stamping out all opposition regardless of means. They had been hateful, arrogant, and condescending. And now they are left moaning and drowning in pity parties in pools of tears wondering how such a disaster could have ever befallen them. Oh woe. The only thing left to do was throw a massive fit, and the fit continues.

         We will know further that this current awakening is indeed a move of God by the complete failure and disaster inflicted upon those who continue to fight it. We have already known for decades that the MSM is morally and journalistically bankrupt. The election results only confirmed it. We also knew the government was growing more corrupt, mainly because the checks and balances designed by the Founders to stop corruption were no longer functioning properly or at all. Most had sold out and were happy in their selfishness at the expense of the nation.

         Well, the nation, over several years now and over several elections, has basically been saying to hell with you. But the nation kept losing. It did not have the power to overcome. It was a very sad thing to see so many good Americans at a complete loss of what to do and how to overcome. The deck was greatly stacked against them.

         But then, American Christians finally started getting their sorry lazy act together. They had been spending most of their time on material non-spiritual pursuits. The great majority of churches had become completely spiritually irrelevant. They still are. I know. I was there for a long time and it made me angry for a long time because I kept seeing Christians acting like morons. After serving my tour of many, many years as the good soldier, a polite, church-going, do-whatever-they-tell-me-Christian even though I knew so much more (but only a few cared to listen or apply the proper spiritual truths), the Lord told me to leave. I never took that directive lightly and did receive confirmation. Oh well. I had always gotten so much more work done on my own anyway.

A STIRRING REMNANT

         On Tuesday night, November 8, we all saw the results that American Christianity is beginning to come alive. A giant is stirring. Granted, the giant has been a big, lazy, ignorant oaf for the most part, caught fast in the nets of dead traditional religiosity and overcome by untold numbers of demonic clergy spirits, scared to death of breaking custom, not properly honoring culture, or being seen as a deviant.

IT APPEARS AS THOUGH ENOUGH CHRISTIANS HAVE NOW LEFT THE RESERVATION.

VOTING DATA

         We now have solid evidence that they decided the 2016 Presidential Election. According to Wikipedia, citing exit polling data provided by Edison Research, these are the numbers:

         Christians comprised 75% of the total electorate:

27.00%: Protestant

23.00%: Catholic         

24.00%: Other Christian

1.00%: Mormon

         The other 25% of the electorate was composed of “No Religion” (15%), “Other Religion” (7%), and Jewish (3%).

         Of the Christians who voted for Donald Trump, these are the percentages of the total electorate:

16.20%: Protestant

11.96%: Catholic

13.20%: Other Christian

00.61%: Mormon

41.97%

         Of the Christians who voted for Clinton, these are the percentages of the total electorate:

10.08%: Protestant

11.04%: Catholic

10.80%: Other Christian

00.39%: Mormon

33.03%

         In scaling these numbers out to 100%, we find that:

60% of Protestants

55% of Other Christians

52% of Catholics, and

61% of Mormons voted for Donald Trump.

         Overall, Trump won the Christian vote by 56% to 44%.

         Since Mormons only account for 1% of the Christian vote and Catholics almost split the vote, these two were largely inconsequential to Trump’s victory, although Catholics did vote for Trump by a 52-48 percent margin.

         It was the Protestants and Other Christians who voted for Trump that made the difference. These two groups accounted for a whopping 29.4% of the total electorate, almost 40 million Americans.

         According to Penny Nance, the President of Concerned Women for America, Donald Trump won a historical 81% of the Evangelical vote, the best since Ronald Reagan. 

         It is estimated that 134.5 million Americans voted, which is 58.1% of eligible voters. Based on that number, 100.9 million voters were classified as Christians. Of that total, 56.49 million Christians voted for Donald Trump.

         Though these numbers are not perfectly scientific and remain preliminary, they do give an excellent indication of the actual numbers. We know there was a so-called hidden vote. It came from the forgotten Americans. The majority of these were Christians. This proves the Great Awakening is indeed coming forth, the Remnant is stirring, and a big leap forward has taken place.

         Be encouraged. But whatever you do, DON’T RELAX. This is only the beginning.

         Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

         For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. [Hebrews 12:1-3] [1]

HUMBLE YOURSELF BEFORE THE LORD

         The President-Elect, on his first official trip in that capacity to Washington DC, has taken a decidedly humble approach. He has been cordial, gracious, sincere, and low-key.

         There was talk in October, at the lowest point of his political campaign, when something really bad from his past erupted forth and was set to derail it all, that he was strongly advised to own up to his great wrong and apologize. He had a decision to make. Prophetic voices claiming to hear from God were told that if he took the humble approach he would get through it. He would otherwise be finished.

         He ended up owning up to what he did, faced it like a man, and apologized to the nation at the next debate.

         It was supposed to be his coup de grace, the death blow, that which would finally finish him off. It failed. It failed because he knew that if he was to continue the race he had only one chance to be successful. He had averted the trap so many, many times before. Any of those things would have destroyed another candidate or campaign but the things that destroyed others never came close to destroying him.

         The intelligent people knew why. This man had been much more thoroughly tested throughout his life and career than any of the other candidates. They all had to play the PC game for the sake of their careers and they knew it. They were largely all bought and paid for. But this man had no master. And even though he had made a move toward the Lord long before this, that move would have to be tested. Therefore, though what was sprung upon him in October certainly came through his enemies who no doubt had held it for the right time to administer a crushing blow, it was also the case that the Lord allowed it. It was a door he would have to walk through. The road to the Presidency had to go through that erupting scandal. And though he survived all the others he would never survive that one.

         Unless he took a humble approach and showed a contrite heart.

         He survived. The road continued.

         As a result, he emerged the winner.

         There have been reports of divine intervention during the election. Whatever the case, the vast majority of Americans know something entirely unprecedented and unexpected has occurred. Almost no one on the losing side saw it coming. Ninety-nine percent believed wholeheartedly that their victory was assured. Perhaps the same amount of people on the eventual winning side, on the other hand, were cautiously optimistic or hoping for the best, though there was an undercurrent of foreboding. Many millions had been praying. It was all going in one direction.

         On Tuesday night, among other sites, I was following in real time the New York Times election graphics on the internet as the national vote was coming in. According to that website, the President-Elect began the evening with only a 15-20% chance of victory. For reference, before you read further, you must see this link: False Forecast

         After the initial votes came in supporting the projected scenario of a huge loss for the eventual President-Elect, the totals began changing dramatically. The graphic was flipping. The candidate who started out at 80% began drifting down. The one who started at 20% began trending up. These two lines that started from the left side of the graphic very far apart continued coming toward each other, then actually met in the middle. The graphic was then projecting that each candidate had an equal chance.

         Then the lines crossed over each other and continued. The projected winner kept falling. The projected loser kept rising. He rose all the way to 95%. Long before he had actually garnered the needed electoral votes he was already projected as the winner. The graphic never changed. The one who expected to lose big by all the experts, the polls, and the losing side had actually won.

         This is all new territory. No one has ever done this before.

         Is it possible that it happened without the Lord’s involvement?

         “Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.” [Matthew 23:12]

         “So the last shall be first, and the first last.” [Matthew 20:16] [1]

Prophetic Words from Last November and the First Republican Debate

         On the eve of the first Republican debate of the 2016 election cycle, many Americans remain very angry about the sorry condition of the country. This is born out very clearly by the candidacy of Donald Trump in particular.

         Last November, this site made a clear prediction about the Republican do-nothings in power since last January. They were given a massive mandate in the election of November 2014. The voters elected a Republican Senate and added to the Republican majority in the House of Representatives.

         I said then that the new guys would be the same as the old guys. Republican voters have since been extremely upset with the continued disconnect in Washington DC and the unbridled arrogance of the out-of-touch elected representatives who made great promises prior to the election but have since joined up with the other side.

         If American voters were extremely angry at Democrats last November, they are certainly that much more angry with Republicans at present.

         American politics is in a state of flux. We are seeing a big change in the entire election process at present. Will the American voter be heard? Has the American electorate been rejected by the establishment parties to pursue their own agendas?

        For an answer or two and some insight into the future, I recommend the following prophetic post from nine months ago:

Field of Dreams? Regarding the American Voter and the 2014 Election

         Real Christianity—The Nature of the Church

Field of Dreams? Regarding the American Voter and the 2014 Election

         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.

         Sound familiar?

         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.
