B. Hussein concludes he owns America. He said, “I
won.” He acts as if he is the nation’s property owner. “I won.”

All the while he loses. America loses. The world loses.

Countless similar secularists agree with B. Hussein’s ownership of Earth. They have boasted this for decades as they wipe God off the Earth.

However, facts are that mortals don’t own this property. The Earth was created, not by God the Father. It was created not by God the Holy Spirit.

The Earth was created by God the Son with the others within the triune godhead agreeing with the Son.

There is perfect unity within the Trinity. God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are three-in-one—the absolute union. Throughout Scripture’s research one realizes that there is no conflict in the triune godhead.

Christ prayed in his High Priestly Prayer that His disciples would be one as the triune godhead is one.

Specifically, Christ was appointed prior to Earth’s creation as Earth’s creator. That is why Christ came to Earth as the incarnate One to redeem His own property. (See footnote).

That is why Christ will return to Earth as King of kings and Lord of lords. He will rightly rule on Earth for one thousand years. Earth is His property though Satan rules it temporarily as the Prince of the Power of the Air. However, the Prince is not the King. Christ is. King tops Prince.

After the one thousand years, then Christ will see that the Earth is dissolved. The damned will be consigned to the Lake of Fire and Brimstone. The righteous will be escorted into the New Heaven and the New Earth.

Christ holds the deed to this Earth. Right now God in His anger is disciplining unsaved earthlings for their thievery. They have sought to grasp Earth from Christ’s hands.

One dare not do that. But because mortal hubris has wrenched the impossible, God is responding right now with such a divine press against worldwide population that everyone is squeezed against life’s wall.

However, note this: Christ not only owns the Earth’s property deed. Christ owns His own redeemed children. He owns the saved. He owns the repentant mortals who have committed to service Christ. These mortals will this to be so.

That ownership gives to His children the biblical promises that cannot fail. God being God cannot break His promises. God is eternal integrity.

This God in Christ has said that He will never leave us or forsake us, that is, His grace children. He will order the steps of the godly disciples. He will be their salvation.

The Bible is replete with incident after incident of God delivering His own from the enemy’s grasp. He is doing that today as well. Those disciples pressed against the wall are discovering openings in the wall they had never envisioned. God is in the openings.

God’s grace children do not live in the same sphere as the unsaved. We redeemed ones live in the Christ sphere, that invisible world overseen by Christ. That is why grace children continually speak to Christ day and night in order to be covered with His comfort.

That is why grace children remain calm. “Fear not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord which He will show you today. The Lord shall fight for you, and you shall hold your peace” (Exodus 14:13-14).

“Stand still.” Calm. Wait upon Christ.

Grace children come out from among the ungodly. They keep their robes washed in the blood of the Lamb. They witness to victory before visible victory is realized.

Grace children continue because they know that “this is the day the Lord has made and we will rejoice in it.”

Grace children do not lose their joy for they experience miracles from Christ. They are directed daily to particular Scripture passages just for that specific moment. The Spirit of Christ speaks to them within their inner spirits.

Christ owns this Earth. He will see to it that the ungodly seeking to wrestle Earth out of His holy grasp are brought to naught. Zero. Crumbled.

Christ also owns His grace children’s existence. They will it to be so for they know that outside of Christ’s sphere is damnation. Therefore, grace children insist that they remain as love slaves inside the Christ covering.

“Fear not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord which He will show you today. The Lord shall fight for you, and you shall hold your peace” (Exodus 14:13-14).
