President Trump unveiled his personal budget proposal for 2019 a few days ago. In his speech, Trump admits the US has spent 7 trillion dollars in the middle east yet President Trump says emphatically,  “What a mistake.”

Now, I am not usually one who takes an interest in national politics. But yes this spending is a huge mistake. “Why?” You ask. Because it’s NOT WORKING. Because the $7,000,000,000,000.00 spent so far in the #MiddleEast has not improved the quality of life for anybody over there.

So you have to ask yourself, who benefitted from spending that much money? Who got paid with those funds? Can you imagine how much profiteering there is by big military contractors every year?

Did the printed money from the democracy of the US concern itself with the poor? Did it free prisoners from harsh regimes? Did it address the horrendous health problems for the blind, the diseased, the starving? Did it free women from degrading oppression? That’s what Jesus’ message was all about. It was given to all us who have downloaded even a pinch of HIS kind of Spirit. This is what we are commissioned to do.

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free..." Luke 4:18 NIV Bible

For the seven trillion dollars spent in the Middle East, you would think one could buy whole countries with that and turn the deserts into arable land, desalinate water from the oceans to irrigate them and feed and educate the people.

Yet Donald Trump in his budget speech to the nation proposes the US spend $4.4 trillion dollars in the budget for next year. This includes an increase for the Pentagon of $700 billion dollars, $686 billion (13% increase) for the US militaryand at the same time he proposes massive cuts to humanitarian and economic aid to countries around the world. 

This is a problem for Christian believers and those of many faiths. The US spends more money on military than all other nations combined and still, they want to increase that each year. This is the direct reason their National deficit tops $20 trillion and keeps on growing by leaps and bounds and it’s already way too large to ever be possible to pay back.

MILITARY MIGHT IS NOT GOING TO HEAL THE NATIONS! Click To Tweet 

But there is one type of government that will!

A government aligned to godly principles =

The Kingdom of God established on Earth

Jesus was an ambassador to all world nations proclaiming the “good news of the kingdom.” He was referring to an other-worldly government based on #godly principles and laws. You know – the principles of charity, compassion, integrity, honesty, unity, respect; those are the attributes that will buy #peace for the world.

Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. Matthew 9:35 NIV Bible

Come on people of the world, let’s stand up in our #humanity and defend these higher-power principles. We the people have to do this –because our world politics are still killing The Messenger.
