Now it’s August

On June 1, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman said that President Trump “has been telling a number of people he’s in contact with that he expects he will get reinstated by August.” In reality, Haberman did not identify or qualify her “sources.” The previous deadline for Trump to be reinstated was June. Now it’s August. In a June 16 interview with Fox News commentator Sean Hannity, Trump said, “Shockingly, we were supposed to win easily at 64 million votes and we got 75 million votes and we didn’t win but let’s see what happens on that.” Now The Hill reports: “Thirty percent of Republican voters say they believe former President Trump will “likely” be reinstated to office this year, a new Hill-HarrisX poll finds.”

The Hill on June 18 reported: “While a segment of the GOP has indicated support for the idea, the vast majority of voters across the political spectrum agree it’s unlikely that Trump will return to office this year. Seventy percent of Republican respondents in the Hill-HarrisX poll said such a scenario is unlikely, along with 74 percent of independents and 87 percent of Democrats. Meanwhile, 26 percent of independent voters said it’s likely Trump will be reinstated while 13 percent of Democrats said the same.” In other words, just short of a third of Republicans and Independents believe Trump will be reinstated, and a little over 10% of Democrats feel the same way.

Conspiracy theorists are now pointing to August for reinstatement of the President. The previous deadline has passed. The election recount investigations occurring in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Arizona and other states have not so far resulted in even the potential overturn of certifications of the electoral college in those states. The US Constitution provides for a process of determining a president IF the states do not certify the vote and cannot come to a conclusion as to a victor. In the 2020 election, irrespective of fraud, voting machine irregularities, dead people voting or otherwise, each state certified the results of their respective state’s election. There is no provision to overturn an election beyond that certification. The states certifying the election results made the election legal, irrespective of how it illegally it may have been attained.

There are people making money and a name for themselves on selling the false hope that somehow President Trump will be reinstated. Short of an outright miracle, Trump will not be reinstated as predicted. This is a moving target designed to paralyze people from taking action to correct the problems before them. Christ said in Matthew 24:4, “Take heed that no man deceive you.” There are warnings throughout scripture about vain words leading to deception and the snares that await. In April, it was June. In June, it is August. Time goes by and people think that someone is somehow going to change things. Trust in the Lord, not in man. Don’t allow man selling hope to prevent you from doing what the Lord has called you to do.
