At the beginning of this election there seemed there were so many candidates…it was difficult to even count them. Early in the campaign there was a conservative columnist visiting one of the more hostile liberal shows-and she was asked ‘of all the 17 republican candidates-who has the best chance of winning the GOP’. She smiled and said candidly ‘Donald Trump’. Instantly, the crowd erupted with laughter…and all the hosts literally mocked her. While she put herself out on the limb with her response, going with her intuition…she actually did a favor to those with a different viewpoint.
She gave her calculated response to the disapproving crowd early enough where her instincts would reveal something if she ended up being correct. Going against the ‘odds’ makes others really ponder the results if the long shot ends up winning. In other words, would you respect her foresight more if she predicted Trump winning when he was ahead with Cruz-and all others were out…or when she told it like it was-from the beginning.
Well, kinda 🙂 , but have to start by agreeing with you about something. If you simply do not like Trump, cause-you don’t have enough paper to fill in all the reasons…you have the right to feel anyway you want-and I get that.
I also am in agreement with you that Donald Trump has failed the dress code for a ‘politically correct’ response. If we were to debate that his public responses to his opponents were given in the most professional manner-you would flat out win that discussion. However, we would most likely disagree on whether his ‘say what I really think’ answers are a good or bad thing. All I know is the American people believed in him enough to vote-fix this, it ain’t working! They probably considered the package as a whole a lot better than anything they were accustomed to.
If we can get past the way he says things…and ‘I just don’t like the guy…I mean…I really really don’t like the guy’, we can now get down to business.
Personal note: I would like to mention a talk I had with someone, discussing the different issues between Hillary and Trump. Nothing really was resolved, but before leaving I mentioned ‘One thing about Trump is he really loves America. Can you say the same for Hillary’. He got quiet and did not answer. I am not saying you think Hillary does not love the U.S., but just wanted to mention how the Lord at times looks at the motives over our flawed personality traits.
The Big Picture
First of all, I am not…as a lone voice predicting Trump is going to be the best president since the founding of our nation. I am not that smart-for others have been given greater insight than me. I am just responding to-gathering as much information as possible from a culmination of many who have a sensitive spirit to the Lords voice.
Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
Remember…we agreed to put-but I don’t like the guy-on the shelf for a moment.
We need to start from the beginning- I will try to present a fast forward version. If you read the New Testament-especially Acts-you find the early church was full of incredible power-miracles and a unity where you knew God was with them. What happened? The politicians got involved in the church and you can guess the results. They went from persecuting the church in 300 AD to promoting a political religion, good for the church but bad for the Lords Spirit. Ever since Constantine forced his soldiers cross the rivers to be baptized, the Lord has been trying to restore the church to it’s original state-full of His Spirit, power and glory. See link
As I am writing-it’s making me laugh…wish we could take a selfie of you guys-what is the heck does this have to do with a Donald J. Trump!
Ok, let’s wrap up the history. The church was not doing it’s job over the centuries-including America. It really has been getting bad-and the corruption level in the government is more serious than what we ever could imagine. See Corruption The people in America were simply turning their backs of the statutes of the Lord. Several of the Lords preachers were warning America in 2015, repent or we were going to be judged. Those whom I believed were ‘prayed up’ were also hearing this message-confirmed in our spirits.
What the Lord is Doing
While America has not yet truly repented, many in the church sincerely cried out to God-Lord, what can we do…our hands are tied-all we can do is pray and vote. There has never been a time in modern history where all the candidates in a political party have been pro…let’s just say, they spoke to support of values given in the Bible. Kennedy for example mentioned he was religious…but wanted to let the people know he would still be ‘objective’ and not let his religious background influence him. While we can question the candidates sincerity, we knew those in the GOP were pressured to present certain viewpoints. Christians were praying and finally taking a stand.
While I personally believe we are in a season where the Lord is preparing the church for His return, many prophecies have been given about God giving America a period of prosperity. This ‘window of opportunity’ will aid the church to it’s original state, full of His grace and glory. The prayers of the saints have touched the Lords heart, He is giving the church a moment to grow in His Spirit, so we can truly touch America.
Those receiving His prophecies knew Trump was going to win. See Link 1, Link 2 (be sure to view prophecy links when reading articles). It is critical to understand however, this move of God is not about Trump, nor never will be about Trump. As one prophet mentioned, Trump is the foot in the door, and the church with the Holy Spirit blows the door wide open. The Lord is giving His people an opportunity to operate as He intended…in the power and glory as demonstrated in the book of Acts. He desires this move to be so powerful in us, there will be no doubt that God is working by His Almighty Spirit
1 Corinthians 14:25 as the secrets of their hearts are laid bare. So they will fall down and worship God, exclaiming, “God is really among you!”
The question still needs to be answered, are we saying Donald Trump going to be the most dynamic president since our country’s founding. Many of us believe this to be true. The evil corruption is so great across this world, the Lord needed a dynamic person to see it and have the knowledge to gather the right people to stop it. See Link He is not a preacher that desires to be president, he is a rough leader-guided by men and women that do hear from Him-that is being used by the Lord so that His Spirit can be a blessing to all those who will truly seek God.
Under this direction, if the people of God continue to pray and pursue His movement…Donald Trump will indeed be the greatest example of how God can work in a president since the founding of our nation. Some of us who feel this way would rather mention this ‘before’ the evidence substantiates this viewpoint. If we point to this early, ‘against the odds’ it may cause us to realize what the Lord is truly doing-the waking up of a nation. Seeing the Lords hand stretch across America-first by His Spirit, then by His people-followed by those He has placed by His providence…can encourage us to genuinely pursue an invitation that is always open
Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me.
If ‘We the Church’ continue to pray and seek His face- this will be the greatest move of God since the death and resurrection of His Son, His great example of His love for us See Mk. 4:30-32. This movement, if truly pursued by His people, will not be limited to one man or one country-but be a united move of Gods Spirit across the world-His great final call. This opportunity in the Lord is truly that incredible. See 1st 4 articles on the Kingdom of God.
2 Chronicles 7:14 if My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
I hope, in some way-this article has put into perspective our viewpoint. The last thing we want to convey is…we are the superior crowd , the better group, the perfect example. We do want to say, we have messed up, sinned and have blown it. That is why we came to the Lord in the first place, we finally realized we needed Him.
