The Prophetic Meaning of President Donald J Trump

As a prophet it becomes clear how the hearts of kings is moved by the hand of God when it comes to leadership.  The LORD controls the mind of a king as easily as he directs the course of a stream. Proverb 21:1

This means that as people make decisions, the Lord is creating influence.  Sometimes He allows evil to manifest to bring repentance.  All you need to do is read the books of Kings and Chronicles in the Old Testament.  It's a repeating patter.  It's still going on.

If you have a problem with that, you don't know the Word of God. He also puts people in leadership, even if we don't like them.  

“Before Him all the nations are as nothing; they are regarded by Him as worthless and less than nothing. To whom, then, will you compare God? What image will you compare Him to?” (Isaiah 40:17,18 )

I have not always been happy with the people that come into authority.  Yet I recognize they are there because God moves the hearts of those who make decisions.  There are also demonic influences that cause evil people in authority to make the People Groan.  Yet.. God is not fooled by this.

 When the righteous flourish, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, the people groan.  Proverbs 29:2

It is not God's intention for the wicked to rule, but the hearts of men are evil in many ways, easily deceived, even the very elect.  What matters is God's will for righteous leadership.  Some leaders in Kings and Chronicles started out evil and ended good, some started out good and ended evil. The difference is the Prayers of the Saints.  When people directly and intentionally pray for a leader, God moves his heart.  As is noted above:    The LORD controls the mind of a king as easily as he directs the course of a stream. Proverb 21:1

Rebellion against God will result in desperate times.  Not because of God's wrath, people bring it upon themselves. Greed, ignorance and hunger for power costs a nation and causes disaster. 

 “But the Lord is the true God; He is the living God, the eternal King. When He is angry, the Earth trembles; the nations cannot endure His wrath.” (Jeremiah 10:10) 

‘I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the Lord, do all these things.’ ” (Isaiah 45:7)

  ‘Son of man, if a country sins against me by being unfaithful and I stretch out my hand against it to cut off its food supply and send famine upon it and kill its men and their animals, even if these three men – Noah, Daniel and Job – were in it, they could save only themselves by their righteousness,’ declares the Sovereign Lord. . . . ‘Or if I bring a sword against that country and say, ‘Let the sword pass throughout the land,’ and I kill its men and their animals, as surely as I live,’ declares the Sovereign Lord, ‘even if these three men were in it, they could not save their own sons or daughters. They alone would be saved.’ ” (Ezekiel 14:13-18)

The nation, the USA long ago decided that the God is no longer Lord.  When the former president declared that the USA was not a Christian Nation, I knew that he could not tolerate this evil.  This has caused the civil war we see in our nation today.  The sides are drawn.  There is no middle ground.  This is why Donald Trump is President.  He is God's judgment agent. He doesn't even know this.  But those who see what is in the spirit, know that as certain as the anger expressed against him by many, it is exposing the hearts of men for the evil contained in them.   It has also caused a level of irrational thinking on the part of many, and exposing double-mindedness on the part of some who are called by HIS name.   These unstable quasi Christians are convinced that Loving Jesus is enough to call him Lord.  NO he must be Lord of all. That includes their heart, mind and soul.  It includes a core that must oppose wickedness.  That would be theft by politicians (tax), homosex, abuse of marriage, abortion and all forms of deceptions. 

 “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He chose for His inheritance.  From Heaven the Lord looks down and sees all mankind; from His dwelling place He watches all who live on Earth– He who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.  No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength.  A horse [a symbol of military might] is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save. But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear Him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.” (Psalm 33:12-19, insertion mine)

“He [the Most High God] changes times and seasons; He sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; He knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with Him.” (Daniel 2:21,22, insertion mine)

“Things that cause people to sin are bound to come, but woe to that person through whom they come.  It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around his neck than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin.” (Luke 17:1,2)

 “Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: ‘It is mine to avenge; I will repay,’ says the Lord.” (Romans 12:19)

The danger many who have spat in the eye of God by their open rebellion will find themselves descending into an even more sinful state.  The compromise will exact a price.  Accepting things that seem to be rational but against the moral Christian center will cause them to drift away.  We see it already in many communities.  The advent of Homosexual led "Churches", openly or not, is death.

There is also the case of unrighteous rulers who now are causing the nation to fall into all sorts of evil.  Those rulers will be called to account as the people of God pray.  I am not talking about an awakening. I am talking about the death of some who are walking on a path that leads to perdition.  The people who oppose the rule by Righteousness will find themselves on the wrong side of the grave. 

  “Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.  Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.  For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you. For he is God’s servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God’s servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.  Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience.  This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing.”  (Romans 13:1-6, )

God's servant is to do you good.  If you despise that, if you deny that, if you are someone in rebellion against the people God has in authority in government, even if you don't agree with him or her, you need to recognize why and who they are and why they are there.

" Therefore, you kings, be wise;  be warned, you rulers of the earth. 11 Serve the Lord with fears
and celebrate his rule with trembling.  Kiss his son, or he will be angry and your way will lead to your destruction, for his wrath can flare up in a moment."  Psalm 2:10–12

None of this excuses rebellion and apostasy on the part of a ruler will go unnoticed.  It's why we must pray intensely for Donald Trump.  That God can move his heart.  That He will be protected both physically, spiritually and held in righteousness.  We dare pray no other way.
