The Last Election?

I know alot of us who are watching and waiting for the Lord to return, are also keeping an eye on the elections this year as being a big indicator as to how soon things might be speeding up towards that Blessed Hope. I think the crowd is about 60-40 on who thinks we won't even have an actual election (or selection if you prefer), and all of this is predicated on "something" happening. Well, I want to look at the possible "something" and see what is most likely given what we know at the moment.


Let me also add before we get started a couple of things since this is a sensitive topic for many people. First, I'm not saying Trump is the solution to what ails America. We know what Scripture says and we know where Scripture says the world is heading. Secondly, if the Rapture is still years to decades off, (unlikely) but theoretically, let's say that it is years away. Which administration would you prefer to live under? Remember, it's not "politics," it's "policy." Whose policies would you rather live under? One that is demonstrably antichristian? AntiIsrael? AntiGod? Or one that isn't? Truth be told, I'm a monarchist waiting on Jesus to return. But if I had my druthers, I'd prefer serving the Lord under a Trump Administration than a fourth Obama term.


I'm not omniscient so I'd like to predicate this entire discussion with the idea that there are limitless possibilities that could happen, and I'm only listing a handful, in part due to time constraints as well as my inability to see into the future. However, just thinking through some things, I've boiled it down to about four different scenarios, with three major branches. Before we begin, let's just talk about the reality of life in the United States in 2024.


The Real Numbers


If you look at the current stats, they all say that inflation is around 3-4%. Sure doesn't feel that way, does it? I mean, compare your same grocery list from last year (or pick a previous year) to today and you can gauge for yourself the increase (or decrease in purchasing power). I believe the real inflation rate is more like 15% when you take into account the increased cost in goods and services as well as the decreased purchasing power of the US $.


The National Debt


Currently, the national debt clock is checking in at $34,874, XXX, XXX, XXX (X means it's spinning too fast to count). But if we were to add in the real national debt, that means including all the unfunded liabilities forecast to be paid out as well, we are really looking at a national debt in the neighborhood of $100T + so in reality, the national debt is at a minimum, $134T.


The Replacement?


The 2024 debate was a disaster for Joe Biden. As one tweeter tweeted (or X'd?), was that the open-mouth, wide-eyed non-blinking stare of the current Commander in Chief, was more akin to him staring into the afterlife rather than staring down his opponent. The post-debate polls were not kind to ol Sleepy Joe, and while it varies from poll to poll, almost all of them have him trailing to Trump with margins between ouch to wow. Most of the polls have him in the high 30s and low 40s, but in reality, Biden's real polling numbers are between 8-10%.


With that said, it seems possible that he might be replaced as the Democrat nominee, but as of today (7/3/24), he is still the incumbent. Now, the only viable options the Democrats have are Michelle Obama, Kamala Harris, Gavin Newsome, and Gretchen Whitmer. Each has detractors, but the biggest problem the democrats have, isn't name brand recognition, it's the fact that we've all been living in a Democrat-run America with a border in chaos, rampant crime, high inflation, military failures, geopolitical fails, and a dozen other detractors that make any democrat offering the same thing, highly unpopular.


The Invasion


Please watch this video between Steve Gardner and JJ Carrell. But let me forewarn you, this video is very disturbing and will leave you feeling hopeless (if your hope is in this nation). However, JJ, who is a 24-year veteran of the Customs and Border Patrol, believes the actual number of illegal aliens in the US to be between 10-40M from 2021-Present


The January 6th Fiasco


January 6th, 2021- The reason why Nancy Pelosi, the then speaker of the house, refused Trump's offer to bring in any additional law enforcement officers and military assets such as the National Guard was in the hopes that what happened, would happen. It just needed a little "nudge." The nudge came by way of undercover FBI instigators (ex. Ray Epps) who led the increasingly riled up J6 crowds into the halls of Congress, all so Nancy Pelosi could implement the emergency rules to 1) delegitimize Trump's claim that the election was stolen, and 2) delegitimize the states challenging the results of the election. After that debacle, nobody wanted to be lumped in with all that craziness. Had no riots or craziness occurred, and at least one state been successful in challenging the certification, Biden would likely not be current president. The following states were challenging the 2020 election results:


  • Pennsylvania:

  • Multiple lawsuits challenged mail-in voting procedures, deadlines, and the handling of ballots.

  • Michigan:

  • Lawsuits focused on allegations of irregularities and fraud in Detroit and other locations.

  • Georgia:

  • Several suits were filed regarding absentee ballots, signature verification processes, and other election procedures.

  • Wisconsin:

  • Challenges were made concerning the handling of absentee ballots and voter identification requirements.

  • Arizona:

  • Lawsuits addressed issues such as ballot counting procedures and the use of Sharpies on ballots.

  • Nevada:

  • Allegations included improper handling of mail-in ballots and issues with signature verification.

  • Texas:

  • The Texas Attorney General filed a lawsuit directly with the Supreme Court challenging the election results in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin. This lawsuit was joined by several other states' attorneys general but was ultimately dismissed by the Supreme Court.

  • Other States:

  • Lawsuits and legal challenges also occurred in states like Nevada, Minnesota, and New Mexico, among others, though they generally received less attention.


The Scenarios


A.) November 5th-6th, 2024: Given the skyrocketing polarization, it seems unlikely that either side will accept the results of the upcoming election regardless of who wins or how decisive the victory is. Even the Canadian and UK Intelligence agencies are warming to the possibility that the US moves into civil war territory as a result of the deepening political and ideological division in the American political apparatus.


So why is that?


Let’s look at the first three decision branches. These will drive how everything plays out. First, we have to work on two assumptions, to begin with,


  1. We have a national election

  2. We do not have a national election


Secondly, if we have the election,


  1. Trump wins

  2. Trump loses


Lastly, we have to work on some follow-up assumptions if Trump wins,


  1. They let Trump assume power

  2. They do not let Trump assume power


B.) Assuming #1s on the first two accounts, if the 2024 election happens and Trump sweeps it with 300+ Electoral votes (which he is on a trajectory to do), it is very likely the Democrats will still not recognize the election results. Remember Al Gore? Stacy Abrams? Hillary Clinton? This means despite the insider threats (i.e., Democrat operatives, midnight ballot dumps, and technical glitches), last-minute candidate switches, and any other shenanigans, Trump still wins decisively which will be intolerable more so to the Deep State than the Democrats themselves. His victory will most likely look to gut the bureaucratic swamp there (remember he's already had everything thrown at him for the past nine years), this victory will spawn endless lawfare challenges in an attempt to drag out the election results for as long as possible (think back to 2000 and the Florida recount).


Why would the Democrats (and the rest of the political left) want to drag things out?


  • If recent history is any indication of the near future, it would seem that if the goal is still to weaken and destroy the United States (i.e., fundamentally transforming our nation [Barack Hussein Obama-October 2008]) then this is most effectively done from a position of power. This requires the Democrats and their Deep State cronies to hold on to power at whatever costs, even to the detriment of US sovereignty

  • Throwing endless lawfare into the mix can only help sow the seeds of chaos into the US election system itself, as well as sow uncertainty with our allies, which helps further marginalize our standing in the world

  • This also gives time for the next major crisis to happen


C.) Now, if the Democrats somehow miraculously win as they did in 2020 (i.e., through voting machine glitches and mysterious midnight ballot dumps in four key states), I would expect lawful challenges from the right to emerge as well. Ballot recounts and investigations would clearly show more ballots than registered voters for the contested areas, and would indicate that illegal aliens were indeed registered to vote (as they are now through certain state welfare systems), thus putting tens of millions of votes (both legitimate and illegitimate) into question, and again, tying up the election results for months on end.


D.) It would seem that since they couldn't stop Trump from running (i.e., four frivolous lawsuits, a Supreme Court issuance of immunity, and the collapsing of the various prosecution teams), and he wins the national election, the following scenarios are designed to tie up the results of the election for as long as possible to prevent Trump from actually taking over.


Granted, it seems unlikely that they will need or require a situation similar to January 6, 2021, since the Republicans are in control of the House of Representatives and the Supreme Court has since clarified their position on obstruction and treason, has nullified the legal purposes of the unconstitutional detention 300+ J6 protestors are still being held on. So for me, the key takeaways are these:


  1. If the crisis happens before the election, its design is either to steal or prevent the election from happening altogether. This would require a serious crisis of a magnitude not seen since World War II. This means it would require something like a WW3 declaration of war, a true pandemic, multiple 9/11-style attacks, a natural disaster of epic proportions, an economic collapse on par with the 'Black Monday' of October 28, 1929, or any combination of the above (polycrisis).

  2. If the crisis happens after the election, but before Inauguration Day (Jan 20th, 2025), the intent will be to prevent Trump from actually taking over even if he wins the election. This seems to indicate a scenario that would entail the enactment of Martial Law by the outgoing administration, which could then be used to remove or arrest the incoming administration.

Author's Note: Although the above seems impossible, just remember the fact that we currently have hundreds of Americans (January 6 protesters) who are still languishing in pre-trial confinement after three years, the present Department of Justice (DoJ) illegally raided President Trump’s home by force for a lesser issue than the current president (and former VP) who did the same thing as a VP with only a slap on the wrist. The FBI, according to their admission, planted evidence by staging photos at Mar-A-Lago, and removing who knows what, all while allowing four frivolous lawsuits in three states to play out simultaneously against this administration’s current political challenger in what is the most obvious example of election interference this country has ever seen. Doesn't sound so crazy anymore, does it?


Nevertheless, looking at the branches above, let's discuss various courses of action (COA) as to how that might happen. The options are Most Likely (IMHO), Highly Likely, Most Dangerous, and Least Likely.


Most Likely: Terrorist/Cyber Attacks: The Biden Administration has spent the last three and a half years furiously sowing the seeds of chaos for such a time as this. They are doing this specifically to create the requisite crisis to muddy the waters. Given the four years of open borders by which 10-40M illegal aliens have since flooded into the country. This flood includes at least 120K identified Chinese PLA soldiers, and untold hundreds to thousands of military-aged OTMs (Other than Mexican) from Central and South American prisons, asylums, and gangs. It also includes OTMs from the Middle East, Africa, and Asia who are predominantly military-aged males. All of these, despite the media spin, aren't fleeing for political asylum (or else they would have brought their families) but seem to be coming under nefarious pretenses. This also includes the possibility that a hostile nation/entity performs a massive cyber attack on the US shutting down major infrastructure and putting into question the validity of the election. This makes this crisis more than ripe for an October surprise.


Highly Likely: Pandemic: There is zero appetite to revive the COVID-19 pandemic, as most people either believe it’s a scam or have had multiple vaccinations and think they are immune to any new outbreaks. A new pandemic would require more time and significantly increased levels of lethality to garner the necessary public panic to buy into the "mail-in" ballot scam, which means that it would require 2-3 months at a minimum. If this is the crisis, I would expect it to start mid-late August or early September at the latest.


Most Dangerous: World War 3: Given the current amplification of hostilities towards Russia by the US and NATO-backed Ukraine, as well as Xi Xiping's appetite for retaking Taiwan, it would seem that this hair-lined trigger could be tripped at any time before the election causing the US to immediately ramp up to DEFCON 1 very quickly. This action requires the US or NATO to trip one of Putin's "red lines" (ie...something that poses an existential threat to Russia or her interests). This scenario can happen at any time (since we've already crossed several red lines- Gazprom Gaslines, Moscow attack, US/NATO forces in Ukraine). If nuclear weapons are used (albeit unlikely), the most likely attack would be a Poseiden hitting a US Naval Aircraft Carrier. However, any attack would likely be precipitated by a massive cyber attack that would cripple the US on numerous fronts to devastating and catastrophic effect.


For those who don't know (or forgot) DEFCON, short for Defense Readiness Condition, is a system used by the United States military to indicate the level of threat to national security and readiness of the armed forces. The DEFCON levels range from 1 to 5, with DEFCON 1 being the most severe and DEFCON 5 being the least severe. Here’s a detailed description of each level:


DEFCON 5 (Least Severe):

  • Condition: Normal peacetime readiness

  • Description: Routine operations. The armed forces are at their lowest state of readiness. Typical conditions in times of peace. DEFCON 4:

  • Condition: Increased intelligence and strengthened security measures

  • Description: There is a heightened risk of threat, which prompts an increase in security measures and intelligence gathering. Military forces are prepared but not on high alert. DEFCON 3: (We are here presently)

  • Condition: Increase in force readiness above normal readiness

  • Description: Armed forces are at a heightened state of readiness. Units are prepared to deploy and respond more quickly. Military operations are readied for rapid response. An example of DEFCON 3 being implemented was during the Yom Kippur War in 1973. DEFCON 2:

  • Condition: The next step to nuclear war

  • Description: Armed forces are ready to deploy and engage in less than six hours. This level indicates that a severe threat is imminent, and preparations for imminent military action are underway. DEFCON 2 was declared during the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. DEFCON 1 (Most Severe):

  • Condition: Maximum readiness, immediate response

  • Description: This is the highest state of alert and readiness, indicating that nuclear war is imminent or already underway. Military forces are fully deployed, and all measures are taken for immediate engagement.


Least Likely: Economic Collapse: Given the resilient nature of the US Economy (i.e., it's not dependent on any one thing) there are still things that bode ill for our immediate future such as the collapse of the US dollar or a multifaceted collapse in the global supply chain. Other things adding to our precarious situation are the national debt, the ongoing de-dollarization efforts by BRICS and OPEC, and the race to the digitalization of all fiat systems (CBDCs). Nevertheless, this option seems to play more to Trump's strength given his financial savvy and his successful economy in his first term as president in prospering the US. The powers that be don't want to play into Trump's strengths. If there is a collapse, it will come about as a result of a combination of the aforementioned scenarios.


Now, my wife constantly chides me on adding in too much "fluff" and that I should just get to the point. So for those who are a little lost on what I've written thus far, I've put this into a diagram that I hope clarifies the process. On a personal note, the "last trump" on my part is a little tongue-in-cheek, but it would be divinely ironic if it were to happen that way!

However, let me conclude by touching on the last point first.


The Bad News


The bad news is that if the Democrats take control again for another four years, the United States will cease to be a Constitutional Republic. This seems to jive with Scripture in that the United States (as it currently is) is nowhere to be found in Bible prophecy. Yes, the US Dollar is also done. Yes, there is no real way to come back from the $134T national debt we are in now, no matter how you slice it. Yes, the Bible is crystal clear that the last superpower in human history is a global government called "the Beast" (Rev 6:1-2, 13, 17-18), which appears to be a regional imperial power with ten kings who then hand their authority over to the Antichrist, and his aide-de-camp, the False Prophet. These two steer the world into the worst period in all of human history. For their crimes, they are defeated at the Second Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ who subsequently tosses them like wadded-up pieces of trash into the Lake of Fire one thousand years before anyone else.


The Good News


The Good News is, that regardless of who wins the office of President, God is in control (Acts 17:26) and will determine if or how much longer our nation will continue as a nation. Furthermore, if you are a born-again believer in our Lord Jesus Christ right now, YOU will not be here to see the final and most terrifying iteration of man's kingdoms. Christ has promised to remove His bride, the Church before this time even begins. Note this promise here:


Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. Revelation 3:10


This "keep you from" in the original Greek is tēreō ἐκ. We will be kept FROM the very time of the testing that will come upon the WHOLE earth. This coincides perfectly with Jesus previous comments in the Upper Room Discourse when He said:


“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. John 14:1-3


If you don't know Jesus right now as your Lord and Savior, then today is the day of salvation. The Gospel means "Good News" in that God became a perfect man, who lived a sinless life and died for your sins (and mine) to pay the debt we couldn't pay. When we place our faith in His finished work, God trades and covers our sinful natures with the shed blood of His Son. This means that when God looks at me, He no longer sees a sinner separated from Him, but a son, an heir, a new creation, who is covered in the blood of His Son. We are reconnected back to Him through Jesus and sealed for all eternity by His Holy Spirit. But this joy is not just giving us eternal life (which is amazing in and of itself).


He has promised to remove one generation so that they never taste death. They will be translated from mortal to immortal, from perishable to imperishable. We are that generation (1 Thess 4:13-5:9, 1 Cor 15:51-56). Our Blessed Hope is not the Rapture itself, but Jesus' return for us to take us to be with Him forever. While we don't know when the Rapture will happen specifically, the Bible does indicate in several places that we should know generally when this season of our departure will occur (1 Thess 5:1-4, Hebrews 10:25, Rev 3:3).


On a more personal note, you don't know when your last breath will be. Woe to those who have to enter into this terrible time of testing that will come upon the whole world. Even more, Woe to those who die in their sins without Christ and must spend the rest of eternity separated from their Creator for all eternity. If God is all that is good (He is), that means you must spend eternity in a place devoid of God, which means it is a place devoid of all that is good (ie., peace, joy, happiness, comfort, pleasure, love, hope, light, clean air, food, drink, et. al.) So don't delay in making the most important decision you could ever make one second longer. None of us are guaranteed our next heartbeat.


For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

What an appropriate title! It will be the last election. We are so close to the end. For those in power who try to meddle with the results to get what they want… they’re not going to like how things ultimately turn out. If only they could realize that God laughs at them. No reason to worry or be afraid, we will soon be going to a much better place! Maranatha!

Great article as always Pete. You are definitely Holy Spirit led to inform all of us believers for such a time as this. I am always comforted in knowing that our Lord is directing all these moves in our end-time play. Hope your daughter is doing well.
