Description

From the apocalyptic kingdom sequence and Nebuchadnezzar’s madness narrative in Daniel, Ellen G. White developed a cosmic-conflict account of divine judgment in human history that sees God’s character revealed through the moral principles of governance by which he judges the nations. Drawing on OT prophetic oracles against the nations, Steven J. Keillor discerns divine judgment in US history, not only in calamitous events, but also in processes that “sift” the righteous from the unrighteous. The 2016 presidential election fits both patterns of divine judgment, yielding the provisional, working conclusion that the unexpected election of Mr. Trump was the culmination of a judging process that revealed moral defects in America’s political right, center, and left and was the humiliating end of those factions as previously configured.
