Hillary Clinton's pastor compared her defeat to President Trump in the 2016 election to Jesus Christs death.
You, our nation, our world, is experiencing a black Friday," Rev. Bill Shillady wrote to Clinton one day after her loss. "Our hope is that Sunday is coming. But it might well be hell for a while."
He also said life is filled with a lot of Fridays and Good Friday represented the day that everything fell apart.
Today, you are experience a Friday. Your Friday is what happened in the last few weeks and last night in the tragic loss. But Sunday is coming! he continued.
To Christians, Good Friday is the day Jesus's death is commemorated, while Easter Sunday marks His resurrection.
Friday is finished," Shillady wrote. "Sunday is coming. Death will be shattered. Hope will be restored. But first, we must live through the darkness and seeming hopelessness of Friday."
Here is the letter in full, via CNN:
Sunday is Coming)
November 9, 2016
It is Friday, but Sunday is coming. This is not the devotional I had hoped to write. This is not the devotional you wish to receive this day. While Good Friday may be the starkest representation of a Friday that we have, life is filled with a lot of Fridays.
For the disciples and Christ's followers in the first century, Good Friday represented the day that everything fell apart. All was lost. The momentum and hope of a man claiming to be the Son of God, the Messiah who was supposed to change everything, had been executed.
Even though Jesus told his followers three days later the temple would be restored, they had no idea of what that Sunday would be. They betrayed, denied, mourned, fled and hid. They did just about everything BUT feel good about Friday and their circumstances.
or us, Friday is the phone call from the doctor that the cancer is back. It's the news that you have lost your job. It's the betrayal of a friend, the loss of someone dear. Friday is the day that it all falls apart and all hope is lost. We all have Fridays. But, as the saying goes, "Sunday's coming!"
Today, you are experiencing a Friday. Your Friday is what happened in the last few weeks and last night in the tragic loss. But Sunday is coming!
Jesus completed the excruciating task of giving up his life as a sacrifice for the sins of the world. It was his faith and belief in his heavenly Father, that gave him the grace and peace to submit to Friday. While death had seemingly won, Jesus knew better. When he said, "It is finished," it wasn't meant to be a statement of concession. It was a declaration that a new day was on the way.
Friday is finished. Sunday is coming. Death will be shattered. Hope will be restored. But first, we must live through the darkness and seeming hopelessness of Friday.
You know one of my favorite sayings is "God doesn't close one door without opening another, but it can be hell in the hallway." My sister Hillary. You, our nation, our world is experiencing a black Friday. Our hope is that Sunday is coming. But it might well be hell for a while. (CNN
The letter comes on the heels of a report that Clinton is interested in becoming a Methodist preacher.
A NAZI Methodist Heathen.
We should look into the tax exempt status of that “church”.
“he is a nut.”
Wow. But what do we expect from fake Christians who worship abortion?
Well, in a way both events “saved” the world.
Post of the Day
The guy sure has the right name, but he needs to “confer” it on Hillary, because she’s certainly a Shill Lady!
John Wesley (let alone the Lord) should be aghast.
I believe a spiritual tide is turning. That God is arranging for people to once more willingly give their hearts, minds, and strength to Him. And bad actors like Hillary (and to some extent even though less obviously heinous, ourselves) will have a choice. Go with the Holy Spirit, or go with the devil.
If Hillary refuses to the end, let it not be because we wished her any fundamental ill. But because she said no to the love of the Lord unto the very last. Love of the “world” is enmity towards God, and that means an adoring, worshiping love (we are right to wish God’s salvational love to the world, however). When we dig into an idol, we can’t be digging into Him.
What a nut job
You gotta admit, those barrel shaped frocks she wears lately look awfully “spiritual”. ;-)
You said it
She’s in need of preaching herself. There’s no way you can get from the love of the Lord, for instance, to the desire for an ever widening door for the preborn infanticide we call with the sterilized term abortion. We aren’t even being urged to embrace the wished “safe, rare, and legal” ideal any more with Hillary and her buds. No! It’s “don’t punish us with a baby.”
That she didn’t Rise Again on the Third Day pretty much disproves your theory, eh, Reverend?
Oh, the Photoshop possibilities!
Yes, excellent idea
Trump Admins reading FR . . get on it . . seriously
I totally agree with you. The end of cultural Christianity is a sorting process and the start of times when a person has to sacrificially choose Christ.
Democrat Hillary Clinton’s...
