WHAT CAN WE HOPE FOR IN THE NEAR FUTURE?
Know this, my friend, this is no mere man that can solve the problems that has taken so many years in slow increments to come to a near boiling point, and find a solution to our collective national problems.
Now a man who has the corporate and business experience of a Donald Trump may point the nation in the right direction for our economic recovery and as he likes to say “Make America Great Again”. Realize that this man has huge problems to tackle in his first 100 days in office, let alone for the next four years. It will take more than human intervention to aright this sinking ship of state. What this nation needs is a deep, spiritual revival to restore the God centered institutions that were laid by our founding fathers after and during the American Revolution. America needs to be on her knees crying out to God for mercy for the sins of this nation which has been in rebellion against God for the last 50+ years and even more so in the last 8 years.
One thing I believe is probable here, is that a Trump administration could...I say COULD slow the decline of this nation into the abyss of destruction and becoming either a One World Government participant in the near future, or becoming a third world banana republic with no influence in the world affairs that affect human kind. I truly believe that his opponent, I believe would have “put the pedal the metal” for our complete downfall or brought on a larger conflict with the rising power and our chief nemesis, the Russian bear. Our social, political and foreign policy programs would have been a continuation of the present administration, but doubling down on the proverbial psychodelic high of a Clinton presidency.
Right now, the liberal left is in full panic mode and reacting as you would expect, like total children who just lost their rubber ball to the bully on the block. I read about protest and rioting on the west coast. Threats on Twitter of taking the law into their own hands and advocating the assassination of the newly elected President of the United States. The rule of law has taken a detour in the last few years and lawlessness abounds.
I find it amazing that they can't see, that in prior elections half of the country elected the “usurper in chief” the community organizer that had virtually no experience in running any government outside of Chicago slums. But they are swift to condemn this election when the results are not to their left leaning agenda of political correctness and what seems right in the minds of mortal men who find pleasure in unrighteousness. Paul described our world that we live in nearly 2000 years ago, some 40 years after the Lord Jesus ascended to heaven in front of His apostles.
So I have been praying for Jehu-like political leaders to be raised and anointed by God at this very late hour and spiritual leaders of the caliber of Elisha who are willing for God and the nation sake to go for broke like Queen Esther was when she was willing to act politically incorrect when she said: "so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!" (Esther 4:16)
Much of what we have seen is so mediocre and politically correct that real change is but a fleeting political promise that is quickly forgotten when the election is over. Concerning what God did when Elijah anointed Jehu, king of Israel, that he came and disposed of Queen Jezebel by having her thrown off a high balcony and the dogs ate her flesh. Then he rid the nation of all the sons of the despotic and evil King Ahab, thus ridding the nation of the abomination of Jezebel and Ahab the King. Yes, I realize that the answer to the problems of remedy for Israel's problems is extreme for our time. But God will not tolerate evil in the land for an indefinate period. He is patient and long suffering, but when His judgment comes, it comes swiftly and with Divine retribulation and judgment for the sins of the people who are in rebellion against Him.
Oh, how it is needed today to find and anoint men like Jehu and Elisha, both in the political arena as well as in the spiritual arena who under the mighty anointing of the Lord are willing to do whatever it takes under that anointing to see the will of the Lord triumph in the affairs of men.
Is Donald Trump this hour's King Jehu or a King Cyrus?
Based on this story of Elijah at Horeb when he felt there was no more hope for his Jezebel, Ahab run nation and sighed: 'Let me die', the Lord impressed on me that as then, also now in relation to the US, He needed a Jehu-like leader to be anointed and a Elijah-like prophet like Elisha became. In other words His answer to the desperate situation in the land was a strong fierce leadership, both in the political as well as the spiritual dimensions.
The reason that there was hope in Israel in the time of King Jehu, was that there still was 7000 men who had not bowed the knee to Ba'al. This can also be said for the intercessors who have been washed in the blood of the Lamb of God, who have stood in true intercession for the United States of America. I have been so distraught and resigned that judgment has come to America and we will see her decline into the pit of hell.
But as we watched the aforementioned candidates drop off one by one, and Donald Trump was left standing alone, I felt God may be preparing a modern day Jehu to bring America back to her foundational principles of God, country, family and allegiance to all in that order.
I would like to share with you an article I just read in a column written in Charisma magazine:“Jeremiah Johnson of “Behold the Man Ministries” in Lakeland, Florida, said he was praying several weeks ago "when God began to speak to me concerning the destiny of Donald Trump in America:"
The Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, "Trump shall become My trumpet to the American people, for he possesses qualities that are even hard to find in My people these days. Trump does not fear man nor will he allow deception and lies to go unnoticed. I am going to use him to expose darkness and perversion in America like never before, but you must understand that he is like a bull in a china closet.
Many will want to throw him away because he will disturb their sense of peace and tranquility, but you must listen through the bantering to discover the truth that I will speak through him. I will use the wealth that I have given him to expose and launch investigations searching for the truth. Just as I raised up Cyrus to fulfill My purposes and plans, so have I raised up Trump to fulfill my purposes and plans prior to the 2016 election.
You must listen to the trumpet very closely for he will sound the alarm and many will be blessed because of his compassion and mercy. Though many see the outward pride and arrogance, I have given him the tender heart of a father that wants to lend a helping hand to the poor and the needy, to the foreigner and the stranger."
Johnson cited the specific Old Testament example of God personally selecting the non-believing, pagan King Cyrus to work on His behalf, as recounted in the 45th chapter of the Book of Isaiah.
And despite UNESCO and its stupid edict that Israel has no connection with the Temple Mount, Donald Trump will reaffirm this link publicly by moving the United States Embassy for the first time from Tel Aviv to Israel's true and biblical capital: Jerusalem and back Israel's desire to reconstitute prayer and worship for all nations on God's holy hill when Israel is ready to begin preparations to build the beautiful, Messianic Temple of God's holy hill as described by the prophet Ezekiel in the chapters 40-48!
I can imagine what you're thinking: “That is exactly what the Anti-Christ will do” Yes, the ultimate man of sin, the man of perdition will indeed give Israel the right to build a Temple in Jerusalem on the Temple Mount. No, I don't believe that Trump is the prophesied Anti-Christ. What he will be is a facillitator of Israel's right to exist and give her the ability to continue in prosperity and be her defender. This will obviously lead to a time of great political intrigue in the land of Israel.
What I pray is that God will give the man we know as Donald Trump the wisdom of Solomon to govern in righteousness and justice for all people of this land. The coming AC will be so charismatic that he will swoon the people with soft words and a lying tongue. At the moment, Donald Trump is hated by half the nation, and the world is fearful of what his foreign policy positions will be. I pray that his actions will galvanize the American people to know that the man is a lover of the USA and the American people. The Anti-Christ will have no such limitations. What I pray for is that God will give us a time of a reprieve from judgment. A temporary time that we will have a chance to reach many more people for the Kingdom of God and bring more people to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. We have “God willing” four to eight years to increase the entrance of many more souls into the coming removal of the church from this earth known as the “rapture”. If it be in the next 8 years, know that many people in government will vanish, just as common folks will. It is reported that Trump and Mike Pence are both born again Christians. If they would suddenly vanish with millions of other souls, would it not be a total chaos in the United States and around the world, even in Israel? The world will need, they will clamor for a man to bring tranquility back to the nations which has been turned upside down. So sets the stage for the coming Anti-Christ. WE may see many changing things in the political landscape in the near future, we may not. And I may be all wet in this assessment, but I have seen God's hand moving in our political landscape and the alignment of world powers. The rise of a well known, but political outsider to the highest office in the land at near insurmountable odds, can only be the hand of God, as people said the man, Donald Trump had no chance...
But here he is folks, the next POTUS was elected last Tuesday night. We live in very exciting times and the end of the world as we know it, got a little extention as the end of the age grows ever closer. Let us spread the Gospel to all men and women who need the salvation found only in our Lord Jesus Christ, before this short reprieve ends and we see another administration that won't be in the best interest of the United States of America. I have postulated that the coming Anti-Christ would have to be the leader of the strongest nation on earth with Babylon being the center of all commerce and trade, and for the last 150 years, that place has only been New York City...will the USA and it's leader become the beast power, or will we be reduced to rubble in the coming future?. God only knows and I make no predictions, but just give you the facts found in your bible, and let God reveal to you what will be based on the signs of the times....
“For God so love the world, that He gave His only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
God sent not His Son to condemn the world, but that the world through Him, might be saved”.
