Drain The Swamp
Current Affairs 2020

Today's date is 08-12-2020. I have always tried to keep politics and My Bible Studies separate but, I guess I may break that policy with this Study. As you read this Study, I think you will understand why I did break my own policy. Drain The Swamp was Donald Trump's main slogan while running for president. I'm inserting a verse in the Bible that I think is one of, if not, the main problem in the whole world.

1 Tim 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

Note it states the love of money and not money itself. Also note all evil. Not 90 percent, 75 percent, or 50 percent, but all, or 100 percent, of evil.

This year, 2020 The United States of America has seen devastation as never before in history. Why is this? COVID-19 and unprecedented civil unrest in our major cities. Actually it's all over the world. But The United States has been hit harder than any other nation. It's bad. Really Really Bad.

What was Donald Trump referring to when he said Drain The Swamp? He was referring to all the corruption in our nation's capitol, Washington DC. Well, what kind of corruption? $$$$$. Money. ILL GOTTEN GAIN. Well who's getting all the ILL GOTTEN GAIN? Let's just called it what it is, money, $$$$$. Well, where and how are they getting it? That's a good question. Using the internet I did a little research on our congress and senate members. The top 36 members of senate and congress by net worth.

Some of who's getting it.

Today 07-24-2020, I checked the top 36 members of senate and congress by NET WORTH and it's sickening. I'll give one. Mitch McConnell. He's 17th at $22.5 million dollars net worth. He's been in politics all his life and has never held another job. His actual earnings from being a politician, (senator), is $5.3 million. In 2015 Mitch became House Leader. See chart below. WHERE AND HOW DID HE GET THE OTHER $17.2 million? // I chose Mitch because POLITICS is all he's ever done. There are lots of questions about him not serving in the military during The Vietnam War also. Below is a chart containing a senator's annual pay from 1985 through 2020. Mitch McConnell's pay can be figured from the chart.

United States Senator's Pay

1985 $75,100.00 2003 $157,700.00

1987 $89,500.00 2005 $162,100.00

Looking at the charts above, one can understand why Donald Trump's main slogan was Drain The Swamp. Another thing Donald Trump campaigned on was, bringing our manufacturing back to The United States from China. That brings me to the next item. COVID-19 and unprecedented civil unrest in our major cities.
To the left is a photo of some spreadsheet data concerning COVID-19 and the data is from July 13th 2020. Today's date is 08-02-2020. The percentages are about the same. The countries are listed by number of cases. Note the United States has the most cases and China has the least number of cases. Brazil has the second highest number of cases. It's just south of the United States. I think my writing in red pretty much explains it. Using a world globe and common sense, one can plainly see the United States and Brazil are half way around the world from China. Lots and lots of nations closer to China than the United States yet, we have by far more than any other country. Brazil is second. WHY IS THAT? My opinion is stated in red in the photo to the left.

If this was truly an accident China should have the largest number of cases and the United States should have the least. Or very near the least. The least certainly should be in the Western hemisphere.

Why would China Attack The United States with biological weapons? Because Donald Trump is bringing our work home from China. China stands to lose trillions of dollars in business and our congress & senate members will lose their bribe money. It's no coincidence the civil unrest in our major cities is happening at the same time. It's part of the attack.

Today's date is 08-02-2020 and deaths by COVID-19 are 155,000. *** On December 7th 1941 The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor killed 2,403 U.S. personnel. *** On September 11, 2001, two airplanes flew into the twin tower buildings in New York City. 2,977 people died and more than 6,000 others were injured in that terrorist attack. Both times we retaliated immediately and our enemies paid with a hell of a price. I do believe China will also. If 2,403 American deaths and 2,977 American deaths are enough to bring the wrath of The United States upon a country, surely 155,000 American deaths require that same if not more wrath. This invisible weapon from Communist China has not only brought tremendous death to Americans, it has brought The United States economy and way of life to a near standstill. QUITE A WEAPON.

Sometimes when a nation attacks GOD'S people, He intervenes. I hope God does intervene. If He does it means we don't have to do a thing. If God doesn't intervene I predict our retaliation will be NUCLEAR. And that wont be nice.

Now for a Biblical View about the above situations

Rom 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

Who is president of The United States while the above is happening? Donald J. Trump. Believe it or not his name is in the Bible. His last name. Just something to think about.

When I think of Donald Trump:
The word TRUMP is in the Bible two times. Both times making reference to the very end of time for this earth. The last name of the current president of The United States is TRUMP. Is that a coincidence? I donít think so. To me itís like a giant billboard in the sky. I have listed below those two times TRUMP is in the Bible. ... I just couldnít resist adding the verse that contains that BIG LITTLE word IF.

TRUMP in the Bible 1:
1 Cor 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
1 Cor 15:51 Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
1 Cor 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last TRUMP: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
1 Cor 15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
1 Cor 15:54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

TRUMP in the Bible 2:
1 Th 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
1 Th 4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
1 Th 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the TRUMP of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
1 Th 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

IF:
2 Chr 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Who are the people called by HIS name? Christians.

That word TRUMP means trumpet. Why did God shorten it to trump?

The word trumpet is in the Bible 61 times. 63 including the word trump. Again, why did God shorten it to trump on those two occasions?

Donald Trump is, and has always been, a very successful man. I think God paid him in advance and is now requiring the work from him.

Thanks, for allowing me, to share this with you. Remember, to always, study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

In His Word,
Art Porter
