On January 13, one week before his presidential term expired, Democrats impeached Donald Trump. It was the fastest impeachment in history, based on the ridiculous claim that the president had “incited insurrection” at the Capitol just one week before, on January 6. Joe Biden was then inaugurated, and Mr. Trump left town. Still, the case was brought to the Senate. They couldn’t reach the necessary two-thirds majority, so the president was acquitted. Still, every Democrat and seven Republican senators voted to convict Mr. Trump.
Democrats are trying to prevent Donald Trump from ever holding public office again. Some Republicans dislike the way President Trump disrupted the political status quo; they want to purge the party of his influence. All of these efforts are far more destructive to America than most people realize!
To understand the political turmoil engulfing this nation, you must know the prophecy of 2 Kings 14:26-27.
This passage is part of the Bible called the former prophets. It is history, but it is also prophecy for our day, particularly for America: “For the Lord saw the affliction of Israel, that it was very bitter: for there was not any shut up, nor any left, nor any helper for Israel. And the Lord said not that he would blot out the name of Israel from under heaven: but he saved them by the hand of Jeroboam the son of Joash.”
“Israel” refers prophetically to America and Britain. The modern descendants of ancient Israel include these two nations, as well as the State of Israel and other nations (request a free copy of The United States and Britain in Prophecy, by Herbert W. Armstrong, for proof). There are people working to blot out the very name of Israel—and sadly, many of them are within America!
But Donald Trump is fulfilling the role of an end-time “Jeroboam,” and God has used him to save America, temporarily, from these enemies (read “Saving America From the Radical Left—Temporarily”).
These verses, however, contain even more prophetic detail than I have previously realized. And we can understand this more deeply because of dramatic recent events.
Robert Mueller’s Two Goals
Much evidence exposes that radical leftists illegally and treasonously overturned the 2020 election. But a lot of evidence shows that it was not the first election they targeted and manipulated.
When Donald Trump was still a presidential candidate in 2016, radical leftists targeted him, ridiculed him for saying the election could be rigged, spied on their political opponents, worked to cover up their prior actions and to install another radical-leftist administration, and colluded with a biased media to win the election. Yet they somehow still lost the 2016 election. Then they continued a treasonous plot to politically destroy the elected president of the United States. And astoundingly, one of their main weapons was a special counsel—appointed by the Department of Justice in May 2017, led by Robert Mueller—to investigate “interference with the 2016 election.”
This special counsel did not investigate their illegal and unconstitutional actions. It investigated the duly elected president, Donald Trump!
You need to realize that 2 Kings 14:26-27 specifically address what was happening here!
Probably most everyday Americans did not believe that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to win the 2016 election. But most probably believed and still believe that Robert Mueller was just honestly investigating to make sure that was the case. The political elites and mainstream media certainly portrayed it that way.
But that is not true. The facts have since proved that. And they show that all these powerful people knew it! They all allowed it to go on as part of their own opposition to what Mr. Trump stood for!
Consider the facts. President Barack Obama had set up the agenda before leaving office. His administration tried to help Hillary Clinton win the 2016 election. fbi Director James Comey opened an investigation against Donald Trump, continued the investigation after he was inaugurated president, lied about it, and entrapped and forced out Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn from his position as President Trump’s national security adviser just 22 days after he took office. (Flynn would have been in a position to uncover what the leftist deep state had been doing.) The Mueller investigation was a way to continue targeting members of the Trump administration and to cover up the truth about what Obama and the others had done and were plotting.
Depending on how you count it, the Department of Justice investigation lasted between 22 months and at least three years—most of the president’s first term—before it finally closed. These people spent years spying on those connected to the president; entrapping his national security adviser; raiding the home, office, hotel and safe-deposit boxes of the president’s personal lawyer; intimidating dozens of people with indictments and threats of indictments. Then they provided zero evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives. That is because the Trump campaign never colluded with Russia.
All this is now publicly known. But few people have connected the dots to realize just what these facts reveal. The mainstream media certainly have not! They have been a big part of covering for this fraudulent investigation.
You’re only going to get real insight from analysts outside the mainstream. On the blog Conservative Treehouse, an author who goes by the name of Sundance has connected these dots: “Robert Mueller had two goals as special counsel. Goal No. 1 was to continue the fraudulent [Department of Justice/Federal Bureau of Investigation] ‘Stop Trump’ operation initiated by James Comey, Andrew McCabe and their crew, technically named Crossfire Hurricane. Goal No. 2 was to bury the illegal action; to create the cover-up needed for everything that took place in the ‘Stop Trump’ operation.”
That second goal is the one most people have overlooked—but it is most important! The Mueller investigation’s goal was not only to keep all the actions against President Trump going, but also to bury all the illegal action. We must realize this.
People knew that Russian collusion never happened, that Mueller’s investigation had nothing to do with it, and that the investigation was actually a political weapon to “stop Trump.” In fact, as this author asserts, everyone in Washington, D.C., knew!
Who All Knew?
“They all knew.” That’s how this author puts it. “Every person in every branch of government and every federal agency knew Mueller’s real purpose.” There was abundant proof of what had been going on under the Obama administration and what the “deep state” was doing even after President Trump took office. But Mueller and his team used their power to cover it up and make it much harder to find and prove. And everyone permitted it: They permitted an illegal, treasonous attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election!
Think of all the people who had to cooperate for the Mueller probe to be as invasive as it was for as long as it went on, and you begin to realize just how deep this corruption goes. As this author writes: “That list of everyone includes: Bill Barr, Rod Rosenstein, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Lindsey Graham, Ron Johnson, Chuck Grassley, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Susan Rice, Sally Yates, Loretta Lynch, Mitch McConnell, every member of the Senate intel committee; every member of the House intel committee … and yes, including John Durham and every member of every doj office everywhere.
“The legislative branch knew. The judicial branch knew. The executive branch knew. The fisa court knew. … All of the insiders knew the Mueller probe was one big vacuum to suck up all of the evidence that would have exposed a corrupt system to We the People.
“They did all of this because the scale of the originating scandal was so severe it would be almost impossible for our nation to cope with the consequences.”
Everyone involved in permitting that investigation knew they were participating in an illegal, treasonous attempt to overturn the legitimate results of the 2016 election! That was the purpose of Mueller’s special counsel.
Then what was the purpose of an investigation into zero evidence of something that did not happen? Its purpose was to cover up the illegality of what everybody was doing. “Illegality” means treasonous acts of trampling the Constitution and attempting to overthrow the government of the land! And “everybody” means almost everybody with power in Washington, D.C.!
The complicity among the political class, including Democrats, Republicans, the news media and others, is far deeper than Americans realize. The amount of power, money, influence, technology and intimidation they wield is staggering.
We need to be concerned most of all about that second goal: “to bury the illegal action; to create the cover-up needed for everything that took place in the ‘Stop Trump’ operation.”
The deep, deep corruption involved here is now being exposed before our eyes. And it was prophesied in 2 Kings 14:26: “For the Lord saw that the affliction of Israel was very bitter, for there was none left, bond or free, and there was none to help Israel” (Revised Standard Version).
This is happening right now in America. Nobody with any power is helping Israel.
The late conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh knew Donald Trump. He said he asked him if he was guilty of the accusations that the Mueller investigation was using as a pretext. Mr. Trump said no. He asked if he was sure. He said he was absolutely innocent. Mr. Limbaugh then said, If you know it’s false, then they know it too.
It was not a legitimate investigation, Mr. Limbaugh said, and Donald Trump may have been the only one in Washington, D.C., who didn’t realize it! He said he tried as hard as he could to convince the president that the whole operation was a political attack on his presidency. President Trump knew he wasn’t guilty of the accusations, but he could not believe that the Department of Justice and the rest of the government was so massively corrupt!
But it was that corrupt! Special Counsel Mueller knew no collusion with Russia ever occurred—and everybody else knew it, too! The leaders at the Justice Department knew it. The leaders at the fbi knew it. The directors of the intelligence agencies knew it. The congressional committees, which have both Republican and Democratic members, knew it. They all wanted to create the illusion that Mueller’s team was looking for the truth, but they never were. They were simply covering up their attempted coup—their treason against this nation!
The Democrats and some Republicans knew it was a fake investigation being used as a political weapon. Yet Mr. Trump just could not believe the scale of corruption in Washington. He couldn’t recognize that the entire purpose for that investigation was a treasonous effort to undo the 2016 election, oppose him politically, and cover up the unlawful, treasonous acts leftists had committed and were committing.
I’m not sure even I understood this like I should, but 2 Kings 14:26-27 point to that reality. This passage gives you an idea of the depth of the corruption in Washington. America’s affliction is very bitter, and the nation has no helper!
How could radicals keep all their corruption quiet? Why did some Republicans let them? Well, they all live by an understanding there in “the swamp”—as Washington’s political class is often called. The understanding is this: If you don’t go along with the way things are done, the established powers will make sure you lose everything. That’s why, for example, you see a Republican congressman characterizing Trump supporters as part of a “cult.” He is accusing 75 million Americans of being in a cult—yet thinks the way people in the swamp conduct business is good and normal. That’s how sick and warped even some Republicans have become.
Four years ago, things were already so bad that God said He would not let them blot out the name of Israel. So He sent Mr. Trump and stopped it. Israel (the United States superpower) really did have to be saved.
Donald Trump was an outsider. He was legitimately elected. He was not one of the political elites, as they view themselves. And he simply could not believe that everyone else with power in Washington was that corrupt. But that is how bad it had gotten, especially after eight years of Barack Obama shaping the government.
These people were literally trying to overthrow the government of the land! To see the full picture, Mr. Trump would have had to realize that their goal was to cover up the truth about what they were doing. He would have had to realize that even his own lawyers were in on it. Mr. Limbaugh said lawyers like John Dowd were telling the president that the fastest way to make the investigation go away was to cooperate with it. So he did, knowing they would find no Russian collusion. This made it seem legitimate.
In America, “innocent until proven guilty” is a foundational principle of justice. The burden of proof is on the accuser. If someone accused you of colluding with Russia, you wouldn’t have to prove that you didn’t; the accuser would have to prove that you did. Yet the Department of Justice and the government tried to make Donald Trump out to be guilty unless he proved his innocence. It was a blatant attempt to overthrow the government!
This is what the 2 Kings 14 prophecy is all about. There was no helper for Israel! Not any! Do you see any help? Now even Rush Limbaugh, a very influential man who was unafraid of exposing the radical left agenda, has died. There is nobody in Washington who is a helper for Israel! God was using President Trump, but they stole the election, and he has been exiled—he’s out! And none of these terribly guilty people is being prosecuted and imprisoned because even the prosecutors and the judges are corrupt!
We now know that the Department of Justice and fbi lied to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court, yet that court never said anything about it. Why is that? Because they are in on it! This shows you the power of the radical left, the swamp and the deep state.
Mr. Limbaugh said he had trouble accepting how deep the corruption truly goes. But consider it: The radicals own education, the news media, entertainment, technology, spy agencies—and now, much of the federal government. They control everything! They can protect lawless rioters and steal an election at the same time they block your free speech for saying that the election was stolen. Even our Trumpet Daily show has been censored by YouTube. They impeached President Trump even after he left the White House in an attempt to block him from ever holding office again. Meanwhile, they are rewarding people at the very center of the corruption like former fbi deputy assistant director Peter Strzok—who was in an adulterous affair—and his wife with high-paying jobs and back pay. That’s the way things work in the swamp.
They have the power and the control. How can you win against that? How can you win if they rig the election itself?
The Source of Power
Where have radicals like Barack Obama gotten so much power? The answer is in the Bible, which many early Americans believed and which many current Americans are trying to blot out.
The lies, intimidation and oppression we see in our own government have a powerful source. The Bible says the father of lies, murders and wickedness is Satan the devil (e.g. John 8:44). He is a literal, living spirit being, and Revelation 12:9 contains a prophecy showing that he has actually been cast down and confined to Earth!
He has great power, and he has a burning goal to blot out what God has done and is doing. People who aren’t close to God have no chance against Satan—and the vast majority of people are quite far from God!
But if you turn to God, God will show you exactly what Satan is doing and give you the power to withstand him.
Satan has the power to conduct great evil and not only hide it but then accuse others of committing it. We saw this with Obama’s use of the deep state in general and the Mueller investigation specifically. It is an example of the “depths of Satan” that Jesus Christ warned His Church about (Revelation 2:24). You can prove the real purpose of the Mueller investigation, but Satan knows that if he makes it complicated enough to require deep study in order to understand it, most people won’t do that, and he can deceive them. The powerful way this man works to destroy the nation he leads is one of those “depths.” People have no chance without God!
This is how you can have everyone in power knowing that the Mueller investigation is a fraud for covering up what happened surrounding the 2016 election, and knowing what happened surrounding the 2020 election—yet demanding that you say that Mueller was completely honest and the 2020 election was completely fair. They are like a vile religious cult!
One stunning example was abc commentator George Stephanopoulos actually shouting at a Republican senator, demanding that he say the election was fair! They know that many everyday Americans realize something is wrong. They want to tell you what you can say and even what you can think. And if you don’t obey, they will politically, culturally and technologically exile you as they amass more money and more power.
You have to recognize where that attitude and that spirit come from!
How This Will End
With no helper for Israel, many terrible things are going to occur. Already other nations are betraying America, as well as Britain and Israel. Iran is openly threatening to develop a nuclear weapon. It is targeting American soldiers and contracts in Iraq in an effort to humiliate the United States. China is becoming notably more belligerent. It is targeting U.S. allies like Australia and Hong Kong while drawing closer to America’s enemies—holding drills with Iran and backing Cuba. The change in leadership in America has only made Europe more determined to become more independent. They threw their lot in with China at the end of last year, agreeing to a new trade deal. Germany continues to link itself physically with Russia through the critical Nord Stream 2 pipeline. As God prophesied, our national “lovers” are going to betray us and besiege us. America will be left without a single helper!
God could use this situation to expose the treason. We know that God will yet save Israel, temporarily, by the hand of Jeroboam. Why? Because Amos 7 contains a prophecy that God’s true Church will finish delivering its warning message to the world, especially to Israel and specifically to Jeroboam. This prophecy shows that someone fulfilling the priestly role of Amaziah will order God’s messenger to be exiled from the country. God’s Church has not yet warned Jeroboam, President Trump; this Amaziah has not yet risen to the place where he could speak for the leader of the land; and God’s Church has not yet been thrust out of the country. So this prophecy must mean that President Trump will regain power in spite of the stolen election. And as Amos 7:8 says, this will be God’s last warning message through His Church before this nation is fatally weakened from within and finally destroyed from without—unless they heed God’s warning message!
People are looking to Republicans, to conservative commentators and to preachers for hope. The reality is that there is no hope without God. But with God, there is endless hope!
Americans could know what is happening. If they just knew the Bible and knew God, they would know Satan is real. God communicates all of this to us in the Bible. But people are not seeking God, so they don’t know God. Neither do they know Satan—so he deceives them powerfully. They are doing as their ancient forefathers did: “In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” This is recorded in Judges 21:25, also part of the former prophets, and prophecy for today. Everyone is corrupt, nobody is honest, and everyone is doing what is right in his own eyes.
Satan is trying to blot out the name of Israel. The good news is, God has a master plan to save Israel permanently—and He is carrying it out! There is hope—but only in God.
God has created us with fantastic God-like minds. He has given us the freedom to choose between His way and Satan’s way. And He is offering all of us the opportunity to be part of His plan—part of spiritual Israel. At this time, spiritual Israel consists of those in His true Church. But the Bible reveals that it will ultimately include every human being, past, present and future, who will humbly repent and believe and obey Him.
The choice is yours. You can allow Satan to blot that inspiring plan out of your own mind. You can try to work things out yourself and “do what is right in your own eyes.” But what is happening to physical Israel and spiritual Israel shows the consequences for those who make that wrong choice. Heed God’s message, which all Israel and all the world will have to heed either before or after the terrible times God has prophesied are coming.
The world around us is about to die. Bible prophecy shows that it will end in a very violent and tragic way. But it will be replaced by a wonderful new world—ruled by Jesus Christ! Once that world is here, never again will you hear the words “There was no helper for Israel,” because all the people will be Israel and be in the Family of God—possessing eternal life and ruling over the entire Earth and, eventually, the universe! What an inspiring hope!
