The Election Exposes the Radical Left’s Rolling Coup
In the early hours of Wednesday morning, when most Americans were sleeping, the nation was deliberately plunged into a monumental political disaster. The United States is now in the grip of an existential crisis, perhaps the greatest since the Civil War.
At this point, it’s hard to imagine either side relinquishing. Both feel they are positioned to emerge triumphant; both possess considerable power.
President Donald Trump has facts on his side (with concerning evidence of voter fraud emerging), as well as the law, the Supreme Court and roughly 70 million Americans. The president doesn’t know it, but as the Trumpet has written, he has also been a tool in God’s hands these past four years, which means his destiny now rests more with God than his lawyers or the Supreme Court.
But Team Biden is not without power. Mr. Biden has the support of America’s media, many of America’s most important institutions, Hollywood, the entire Democratic Party and tens of millions of Americans. The disgraceful silence of a shocking number of Republican leaders also works in his favor.
For now, the battles will be fought by attorneys in courthouses in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Georgia and Pennsylvania (and perhaps in other states too). But at some point, people on both sides will swap their pens for guns, their subpoenas for Molotov cocktails.
So here we are: For the first time since the Civil War, America’s existence as a functioning republic is on the line.
It would be easy to think that this is how democracy works. That this is how it’s supposed to be. That elections are confusing and messy, but they always sort themselves out and the system will ensure the right man wins. Because this happened on Election Day, it’s easy to believe that democracy got us into this mess.
But democracy did not do this.
This is a coup.
For a while now, a handful of brave and perceptive commentators have warned us that the radical left, led by Barack Obama, would one day attempt to overthrow the president, abolish the Constitution, and take over America. Rush Limbaugh, the talk-radio host, has been discussing this for two or three years. But Mr. Limbaugh wasn’t the first. Years before Rush, there was Gerald Flurry.
The Trumpet’s editor in chief has warned that the radical left would try to overthrow America for at least 12 years!
I have spent most of the day in the Trumpet’s archives, reading Mr. Flurry’s numerous warnings. It has been awesome—the ideal tonic for the nausea that develops while repeatedly refreshing the Fox News electoral map. Reading Mr. Flurry’s writings has given me hope, peace and comfort. Why? Because the more I read, the more I understand just how intimately involved God is in what is unfolding in America right now.
This moment was forecast in Bible prophecy. God knew this was going to happen. This coup is only going to further His plan and benefit His work. For nearly two decades now, God has been telling us to expect this. There is no reason to be surprised, and, if we trust and obey God, there is no reason to be frightened or worried.
The following is just a tiny sampling of Mr. Flurry’s warnings these past 12 years. These warnings are about Barack Obama and the radical left specifically. I have included the link, in case you want to read the full articles. If you haven’t done so yet, I really encourage you to at least read America Under Attack and Great Again. These two booklets clearly explain what’s happening in America right now.
Let’s begin in spring 2008, more than six months before Obama was elected president. In an article titled “The Barack Obama Tragedy—It’s Much Bigger Than Race,” Mr. Flurry warned Americans that it would be a mistake to elect Mr. Obama. “I think most people who listen to Barack Obama believe he is sincere. But sincere people can make serious mistakes,” he wrote.
A few months later, in the July 2008 issue of the Trumpet, Mr. Flurry exposed Obama’s close relationship with Jeremiah Wright, the racist hate preacher. “We never take sides in politics. But we have the responsibility to warn our nation of any serious danger.” He warned that Mr. Obama’s leadership would “cost America dearly.” About Obama and his radical views, especially on the issue of race, Mr. Flurry warned, “The end result is going to be worse than anything you imagine.”
Today we are experiencing the “end result” of Mr. Obama’s handiwork—it is worse than most people imagined in July 2008!
Immediately after Obama was elected president in November 2008, Mr. Flurry wrote: “When I saw the results of America’s presidential election, it left me in profound sadness. [I]t showed what a radical turn this nation has taken. It showed just how much the extreme radicals have gotten control. You’re going to soon see that this is a very different America than it was before the election.”
Less than a year later, Mr. Flurry exposed the profound disdain Mr. Obama and those around him—including his vice president, Joe Biden—had toward America’s political system and the U.S. Constitution. “Look at how his disrespect for the Constitution is driving his decisions. He is pushing the government into activities it was never meant to do. He is appointing judges who think the same way, who will reject parts of the Constitution and remove its restraints so radicals can do whatever they want with the government!”
So specific, and so prescient. In spirit, this warning from 2009 prophesied the political coup now underway!
As America got further into the Obama presidency, Mr. Flurry’s warnings became more detailed and powerful. In the March 2013 issue of the Trumpet he explained that a spirit of lawlessness was coursing through America. “As a nation, America is trashing the law!” he wrote. Elsewhere in the same article, he warned: “These are not normal times… What we are seeing is a nation and a government completely tearing away from law.”
The same people who were behind this attack on law seven years ago, including Barack Obama and Joe Biden, are the ones orchestrating the present constitutional crisis! This coup has been building for 12 years.
In 2013, Mr. Flurry wrote America Under Attack. This booklet focuses on the prophecies in Revelation 12 and Daniel 7 and 8 (and others), which reveal how Satan the devil has been cast down and is working through the radical left to try to destroy America. Mr. Flurry identifies Barack Obama as the prophesied end-time type of Antiochus, the ancient tyrant who cast law and truth to the ground and inflicted tremendous damage on the Jews in Jerusalem. The radical left wants to do the same to America.
In America Under Attack, Mr. Flurry also expounds on the terrifying prophecies in Ezekiel 5 and Isaiah 1, which describe a time when America will be consumed by widespread race wars and violence, when its cities will burn with fire, and when it will be conquered by foreign enemies. “The president and the radical left are hastening the fulfillment of those prophecies!” he warned.
In this 2013 booklet, Mr. Flurry even indicates that the radical left was preparing to take control of America and its government violently and permanently. “The U.S. government is casting aside the foundational law of the land and telling us, Look—that is just getting in the way. We don’t need that old law. We know what justice is. You can trust us! That reasoning paves the way for tyrants! And every tyrant is a special tool of the devil—even more so after he was cast down!”
Isn’t this the reason why we are in this present crisis—because prior to the election, the radical left rejected the “old laws” governing the way votes are cast, and surreptitiously and unlawfully created new laws?
In 2016, as America approached another election and Donald Trump entered the political fray, Mr. Flurry’s warnings grew even more powerful and dramatic. He made it clear that even though Obama was no longer president and the Democrats were no longer in the White House, the spirit of Antiochus, that Satan-inspired spirit of lawlessness and corruption, was still present and working throughout the land.
In an article titled “The Roots of America’s Dangerous Turn Left,” Mr. Flurry exposed the Communist incursion into American institutions, and showed how the radical left seeks to transform America into a Communist state. He warned: “We must keep in mind that they have a plan: Their sole purpose is to destroy the government of the land. They seek to destroy the whole American system and replace it with another, which is really communism and tyranny.”
Four years ago that would have sounded pretty extreme to a lot of people; today it doesn’t sound so extreme!
Unless God intervenes, this diabolical attempt to manipulate the election is going to destroy America’s government, just as Mr. Flurry warned.
In this article, Mr. Flurry again identified Barack Obama as the ringleader of this anti-American movement, and he indicated again that the radical left was plotting to overthrow America. He explored Obama’s views on law enforcement and his attempt to undermine the police (which continues today). “You can’t take over a government and run it unless you get rid of the police who are loyal to the system!” he warned.
In 2016, Mr. Flurry also published Great Again. This booklet explains the prophetic context of Donald Trump’s presidency. But it also continues the same theme as America Under Attack. In Great Again, Mr. Flurry continues to expose Barack Obama and the radical left, this time in even more detail. It’s filled with prophetic warnings.
Since 2016, Mr. Flurry has continued to expose the “deep state” and the ongoing coup against Donald Trump and America. In “Saving America From the Radical Left—Temporarily,” he exposed the treasonous behavior of Mr. Obama and Joe Biden in the weeks and months before they left the White House. “Donald Trump is a man with serious problems. But the radical left is relentlessly waging war against the president and leading this country to its destruction! And it was only Mr. Trump’s election that prevented even worse troubles from bringing this nation down even more quickly.”
The coup to overtake America was stopped with the election of Donald Trump in 2016. Will God stop it again through Donald Trump?
In that 2018 article, Mr. Flurry wrote: “This is corruption on a deep level—so deep that most people won’t even believe it!” Will the present coup cause at least some to see what is happening here?
A few months after this article, Mr. Flurry delivered another clarion warning in an article titled “The Kavanaugh Hearings Reveal America’s Lawless Spirit.” This article also emphasized the role of Satan the devil in influencing the radical left and its hatred of America and its past. “It seems the radical left has virtually taken over the entire Democratic Party today, with few exceptions. And they are pushing for conflict! They are cheering the groundswell of discontent and resistance. Even the mainstream press will not denounce such gross behavior. They eagerly publicize it.”
In 2020, two years later, we lived this paragraph!
Mr. Flurry also warned: “Americans need to wake up! Satan is at work—dividing the country, turning us against each other, hollowing away the strength of our republic! Bible prophecy shows this is leading to nation-destroying violence!”
In August 2019, Mr. Flurry wrote “Can President Trump Get Control of His Own Divided Government?” This article explains just how much control Barack Obama and the radical left established over the Central Intelligence Agency, Federal Bureau of Investigation and other governmental departments, and how they were trying to destroy the Trump administration. “This is treasonous behavior, and a bigger threat to America than most people realize!” Mr. Flurry warned.
It is now becoming obvious just how big this threat is!
When you really understand what has been happening since 2008, the events of the past two days are entirely unsurprising. This rolling coup has been underway for 12 years!
In this August 2019 article, Mr. Flurry made an interesting remark, one worth considering right now. He wrote, “Now, it seems that the harder the president’s enemies work to destroy him, the more their own wicked ways are uncovered.” We saw this earlier this year with the impeachment scandal. Not only did the radical left fail to impeach Mr. Trump, they exposed their own hatred and corruption in the process.
What has happened over the last two days is the greatest attack on President Trump to date. Will it too somehow backfire on the radical left? Will it end up exposing them even more?
Finally, consider one last thought from Mr. Flurry. He made this point during a public message in December 2016. He was talking specifically about the prophecies in Ezekiel 5, Amos 7 and elsewhere, all of which describe America’s final days, which are marked by tumult, national dysfunction and failure, and violence.
About these times, Mr. Flurry said: “It’s such wonderful news when you think about this. This is how God is beginning to get Israel to know Him; that’s what Ezekiel tells us throughout. They’re just beginning to get to know God. They’re really disturbed by the Word of God. … They’re hearing it and they’re beginning to get to know God; that’s the good news. We have to sort of read between the lines to see the good news in this book of Amos.”
Amid the chaos and confusion, and inevitably the violence and suffering, there is “good news.” God is in control, and He will use all of these events to introduce Himself once again to America (and eventually the world).
This point comes through so powerfully when you study Amos 7 and all the other prophecies exposing the radical left and this 12-year coup. All through Amos 7, the prophet writes “thus saith the Lord.” The message resonates throughout end-time prophecy, and it’s throughout Mr. Flurry’s many articles explaining these prophecies.
The fundamental message of fulfilled prophecy—and the political coup now underway in America is fulfilled prophecy—is that God is real and alive, and that He loves His people and seeks a relationship with them. While the scenes coming from America are alarming and profoundly sad, we must not forget—through this crisis, “God is beginning to get Israel to know Him!”
