Amazed at the level of illogical thinking by Trump followers.

    We should pray for all people. This would include Trump and his followers.
    So while I may strongly disagree with them, I am hoping for a change within them by the power of God working in their heart (in the Lord's timing).

    I am not saying there would be no nuclear attacks, but it will not be the destruction of the entire world. For the Lord Jesus will return to attack the remaining nations that will come up against Him. Our Lord will then set a peaceful 1,000 year reign after that point. Sinful movies, music, games, etc. will not be in the 1,000 year reign. Animals will not be a threat to humans. It will be a glorification of the Lord our God. The world will worship Jesus. Love, joy, and peace will reign. Countries that exist now will not exist any longer because it was the Lord who ended them by purifying this world with fire (By His power), and not by some world wide nuclear fallout.

    “For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.” (Hebrews 12:14).

    I am skeptical of so called 1000 year reigns that involve the deaths of millions.

    It's what the Bible says.

    The 1,000 year reign of Christ:

    “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.” (Revelation 20:4).

    The Anti-Christ Gathers All Nations To Attack Christ:

    Revelation 16:13-14 KJ2

    And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth... of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of demons, working miracles, who go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to... battle... God​

    Lord Defeats The Anti-Christ, The False Prophet, And The Remaining Kings & Their Armies:

    Daniel 11:45a NLT

    He will stop between the glorious holy mountain and the sea and will pitch his royal tents. But while he is there, his time will suddenly run out

    Revelation 19:19 NIV, Revelation 19:20a HCS, 2 Thessalonians 2:8b ISV,
    .. Revelation 19:20b HCS, Daniel 11:45b NLT, Revelation 19:20c HCS,
    .. Revelation 19:20b HCS, Revelation 19:20d HCS

    Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to make war against the rider on the horse and his army. But the beast... powerless by the manifestation of his coming... was taken prisoner... and no one will help him. And along with him the false prophet... was taken prisoner... who had performed the signs in his presence.

    Isaiah 31:8-9 NLT

    The strong young Assyrians will be taken away as captives. Even the strongest will quake with terror, and princes will flee when they see your battle flags

    2 Thessalonians 2:8a

    And then shall that Wicked One.... the Lord shall consume with the breath of his mouth

    Revelation 19:20

    And the beast... and the false prophet... were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

    Isaiah 31:8 NLT

    The Assyrians will be destroyed, but not by the swords of men. The sword of God will strike them

    Revelation 19:2 and Revelation 19:21

    For true and righteous are his judgments... And the rest were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.​

    Earth is Purified by Fire:

    Introduction:

    The Earth is A Dark & Desolate Wasteland:

    Jeremiah 4:23 ERV, Jeremiah 4:24 AMP, Jeremiah 4:25 ERV,
    .. Jeremiah 4:26a ISV, Jeremiah 4:26b WEB, Jeremiah 4:27 GWT

    I looked at the earth. It was empty; there was nothing on it. I looked at the sky, and its light was gone. I looked at the mountains, and... they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly to and fro. I looked, but there were no people. All the birds of the sky had flown away. I looked, and the fruitful land had become a desert. All its cities were broken down at the presence of the LORD, and by his fierce anger. This is what the LORD says: The whole earth will be ruined, although I will not destroy it completely.


    The Earth is Purified by Fire
    (Conclusion of the Day of the Lord):

    (All Things Upon the Earth Are Destroyed By Fire):
    (And the Polluted Atmosphere Passes Away With a Great Noise):

    2 Peter 3:10-12

    "But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. ...all these things shall be dissolved, .... wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat."​

    After this starts the 1,000 year reign of Christ spoken about in Revelation 20:4.

    Folks need to repent and get their hearts right with the Lord while there is still time. I believe that this involves those who seek to idolize Trump, as well. What do I mean by idolizing Trump? I will leave that between the person and the Lord but folks should know what constitutes idolatry if they study their Bible.

    My encouragement to all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and His Word:

    We should not look to any worldly leader to guide us or help to solve our problems. Believers are citizens of the King Lord Jesus Christ. We are just piligrims passing through in a strange land. So while we may be citizens physically of a worldly country here, our true citizenship is in Heaven with our Lord. For this world and all it's things are passing away. But our Lord's kingdom is eternal. So our focus should be on that which is heavenly and good (i.e. the things within His Word). For what this world can offer us cannot compare to what God can offer us.

    We do not use America to handle our problems. We do not pick up guns to fight our enemies. We fight an unseen battle. The weapons of our warfare are not carnal. We are to pray and love those people who hate us. We are not to harm anyone, but we are to love them and guide them to the love of our Lord.

    Ah, the "out of context" argument ... I'm quite familar with it. It's created thousands of Christian denominations over the centuries!

    Your scriptures also command "do not bear false witness" (Exo 20:16, Eph 4:25, 2Tim 3:3, etc.). It appears to me that Biden has already broken his own witness when he affirmed that he would not declare victory until the election is independently certified, but then went on to do just the opposite. Now, given your own words, shouldn't you also be against Biden?

    You're comparing a monumental amount of clear cases of bearing false witness against others by Trump to a gaffe by Biden in a debate.

    Seems kinda lopsided to me...

    Everyone comes to their own conclusion on that subjective matter.

    Yes, one's biases can color their perceptions, and interpreting what they say can be very subjective. I take it for granted that all politicians lie from time to time to get ahead. They often exaggerate things to and beyond the breaking point.

    I have no particular biases concerning Democrats and Republicans, besides wanting to balance them against each other. I do have a strong bias against Trump, but not because of his politics. I don't perceive him speaking mistruths because I'm biased against him; I'm biased against him because of his relentless telling of mistruths.

    So for someone to equate Trump with Biden on the subject of mistruths suggests a certain kind of bias to me.
