Almighty God vs. Satan: Thanksgiving in an evil world
By Kari Lee Fournier
November 22, 2023

"Pumpkins and Pilgrims" against a backdrop of Satan’s never-ending, wicked debauchery. The two just don’t go comfortably together, and thus we scratch our heads in an effort to reconcile both of these sworn enemies.

Thanksgiving comes from God Almighty Himself. We are told in 1 Thessalonians 5:18: “in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

Nevertheless, our human minds choose not to accept that sentiment. How on earth can we give thanks for what is transpiring worldwide at this very minute—and right before our very eyes?! Of course, Satan steps in with his old and well-tattered playbook entitled ‘Fear: What If The Worse Thing Happens?’ Or his second favorite entitled ’10,000 Things That Can And Will Go Wrong At the Worst Possible Moment.’ Oh, how he loves to double-down on ‘Murphy’s Law’!

Remember, however, that although we cannot stop a thought from entering our mind, we can stop it from nesting there.

Right now, we are in the spiritual battle of our lifetime: Almighty God versus Satan. Yes, it’s really that simple. Bible Prophecy, when correlated with current events, tells us that we are fast approaching the latter days.

It also talks on a ‘Rapture’ that is to come immediately prior to the seven-year Great Tribulation period of God’s wrath on Earth. The Rapture is an event whereby those who believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who died for our sins and rose again…and event whereby those Believers in Christ will be Raptured by Jesus up into the air quite suddenly.

1 Corinthians 15:51-52 has Jesus foretelling the following: “Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed—in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”

Nothing that our Lord has foretold in His Holy Scripture has failed to come to pass…and so you can bet your sweet bottom dollar that this will, that this has to, as well.

Now, no one knows the day or hour of the imminent Rapture of Believers in Christ, but we were foretold in Bible prophecy, via Jesus Christ Himself, that the most important signpost to watch for—in terms of when the Rapture will occur—is ‘the re-gathering of the fig tree.’ The fig tree always denotes Israel in the Bible, and thus Jesus was referring to the Jews re-gathering in their land of Israel in the latter days, when Israel would once again become a nation. This, of course, took place on May 14, 1948, in only one day—just as Scripture foretold that it would!

Jesus went on to state that the generation who sees this Jewish re-gathering take place in Israel will see the rest of Bible prophecy unfold (Matthew 24: 32-34). Of note, it’s currently been 75 years since Israel once again became a nation back in 1948. This subsequently tells us that the hour is very late indeed!

Well then, given the present chaotic circumstances—to put it mildly!—what are we Believers in Christ to do as this next blessed Thanksgiving approaches? We take a look around America and even the entire globe, and see that the world has dissolved into utter chaos…all of which the Bible said would happen as time winds down on Earth. And we understandably are a bit overwhelmed.

For example, America has a so-called President in charge that has a hard time remembering where he is. This misguided miscreant—who no doubt is being run by Obama, another real ‘winner’—also is busy shutting down our gas pipelines and declaring a war on all fossil fuels…you know, the liquid stuff that runs our economy…an economy that under President Trump saw a huge windfall, an economy that was fueled by a spigot of never-ending, self-supplied gas…gas that was in such abundance that we actually had an vast overflow to sell to other countries!

Yet Biden continues to do whatever he can to demote the United States…including opening up our borders to any terrorist who happens to want to gain access for whatever evil deed they can conjure up in their disgustedly depraved soul. Thank you, as well, Joe, for the 200 deaths per day that we in America experience due to the fentanyl being deliberately blasted across the border by China and its dubious partners in crime.

Sadly, the Biden/Obama team does not believe in the supremacy of America…even though this country was founded by God Almighty Himself, with Bible verses threaded generously throughout our Constitution. Indeed, these two criminals are Globalists, part of the malevolent worldwide Elite Cabal/Deep State that ran the world these many past decades.

They, along with the government agencies that they have weaponized, have combined their staunch efforts with evil corporations and the immoral corporate media, all in an effort to put the entire globe under a one-world authoritarian/Marxist government, one that was foretold in Scripture…one that the Bible told us will be run by an Anti-Christ for a seven-year period of time called, as mentioned earlier, the Great Tribulation.

Now, that represents the bad news. But we must bring to mind that there also is good news, as there always is with Almighty God in ultimate control.

The good news is that after this Tribulation period, Jesus Christ Himself will return, after which He will rule from Jerusalem during the Millennium, which is a 1,000-year period of peace on Earth. So, right now we who are Believers in Christ are to remain thankful for all events, as God wins in the end…and we are to gather together in encouragement even more, while spreading whenever and wherever we can the Lord’s Gospel message…His message of ‘Jesus and the Cross.’

It’s tough to say how much more lawlessness will unfold before Believers are Raptured up to Heaven. In this current and global informational-type war, which is unlike any conventional-type war that American has ever seen, even the once-free United States of America has been infiltrated by Marxism/Communism. Sadly, it has been penetrated way up to the very highest levels in government and in parts of the Military.

Yet God now appears to be pushing back against this colossal evil, to be holding back the massively filthy tide that threatens to obliterate Christians and lovers of this once-great country. The Lord appears to be putting forth the beginning of a measure of His vengeance against those who would try to take away the very freedoms that He, in His wonderful grace and glory, extended to us via the death of His only Son on the Cross of Calvary.

As a result, much of the Global Deep State has been taken down/obliterated, although the war is not over quite yet. Nonetheless, we have seen the downfall—or at least the exposing of—much of the corrupt organizations such as the World Economic Forum, the United Nations, big corporations, big pharma, the main stream media, government agencies, the Deep State part of the Military, academia, and Hollywood.

As well, Elon Musk’s Starlink system has been given over to the "good/white hat" part of the Military, and this looks to be what will be used for a new, fair and free Internet system worldwide. Musk also took over Twitter, which he has been busy exposing to have been run by the Deep State government in America.

Moreover, many/many people are waking up to the fact that we have been brainwashed by the television and other despicable media outlets these many past decades…waking up to the fact that these Deep State Elites were trying their ultimate best to depopulate most of the Earth, and to then computer-program the remaining ‘lucky humans’ whom they ‘allowed to survive.’

Nonetheless, We the People "are not gonna" take it anymore! This is evidenced in the fact that we see brave heroes all over the place now, including courageous parents at school board meetings who refuse to let the corrupt public education system use mind control on their children, while these deviants also continue to purposely sexualize youngsters in the process.

Indeed, the evil monsters have awoken a "sleeping giant." And our Lord’s Mighty Hand appears to be involved in an apparent "turning around of the Titanic," away from this enormous onslaught of evil—at least for a brief respite in time.

This action on the part of the one, true living God reminds us that George Washington and Patrick Henry both affirmed a long time ago that our Divine Lord will at some point demand His Almighty Justice. Thomas Jefferson also once proclaimed, “Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep forever.”

Divine accountability, our Glorious Lord, was extremely important to our Founding Fathers. And we also remember from Scripture that divine accountability plays a major role in the return of Jesus.

For now, we Believers in Christ who grieve at worldwide evil that reportedly includes the beheading of even innocent babies in Israel…we focus steadfastly upon Almighty God and His Holy Bible. We stand by His People Israel, as well, no matter Biden’s/Obama’s weak-kneed and feeble attempts at pretending their support for the Jews…all the while feeding the hand/money pot of the horrid and perverted leaders in Iran, all of whom fund/perpetrate terrorism, especially against the Jews, as they know that Bible prophecy foretold that the Jews will be the ones who call out for Jesus at the end of the Tribulation—causing Him to return in All of His Majesty ad Glory.

Still, in terms of these foul Globalists and their hateful plans, “He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision. Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, And distress them in His deep displeasure: ‘Yet I have set My King On My holy hill of Zion’” (Psalm 2:4-5).

Those arrogant fools who doubt the outcome of this Globalist war against the Creator would be well advised to go through the Bible and count the number of battles that Almighty God has lost.” Yes, arrogance before one’s Creator has only one possible outcome. At some point, Scripture assures us that the entire system that Satan has built for humanity will be brought down!

World Net Daily writer Craige McMillan recently put the current state of affairs so very succinctly: “In the grand scheme of things, Globalists are like a wad of gum stuck on one of God's shoes as He tidies up the earth.” McMillan also showed a main point of difference between God and Satan: “God seeks to guide people by His Goodness, not intimidate them by His power.”

Thus, we must not succumb to fear, as that is exactly what Satan, in all of his depravity, desires most. We who follow Christ must stay focused upon Him and His Scripture. As General Michael Flynn so wisely advised when asked what his message is for Americans in fear at the present moment: “Go read Psalm 23 . . . . That’s where the United States of America is at”: https://t.me/JuanQSeven/17155.

And when we persevere in following and obeying Almighty God, we then know that one day soon, when we stand before Jesus Christ, we will no doubt mirror Attorney L. Lin Wood’s grateful/thankful sentiment, one that he recently posted on Telegram: “When I see Jesus Christ, I know I will fall to my knees, praise Him, and declare Him to be the Lord God Almighty. Later, I hope to tell him, ‘Wow! It has been a wild ride to get here with you in Heaven. Thank you, Lord, for safely bringing me home!’”
