I felt compelled to write this article because I have heard so many good Christians saying that the election of Donald Trump is a reprieve from God.
I have a different perspective.
During the past election year, America experienced a very dirty campaign. From the very beginning, the Republican Party was at each other’s throats. Establishment GOP were vehemently against the nomination of billionaire businessman, Donald Trump. He was not a politician, therefore, he was not in the same club as the average Washington D.C. politician. Trump was going against the tide and he stood up against the policies from BOTH sides of our government. Mr. Trump was opposed to this mess with illegal immigration and the open border policies of Barack Obama. He was against the TPP, a trade deal that was intended to sell out American jobs to Asia.
This was another policy by Barack Obama, that hinted at sabotage against the American worker. Repealing Obamacare was another promise made by Donald Trump and he listed one thing after another that he would change in his efforts to “make America great again”. Basically, Mr. Trump made it clear that he intended to undo most everything that Barack Obama and company did during the past eight years of the Obama Administration.
During those eight years, the establishment politicians in both parties rolled out the red carpet and allowed Barack Obama to dismantle and destroy many American traditions. Obama is a radical, there is no doubt, and his flippant rule and egotistical manner proved to MANY that he was no friend of America. It certainly appeared that Obama was bent on the destruction of America and he took the side of many ultra leftist groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood, Black Lives Matter and militant gay and lesbian organizations.
Barack Obama applauded himself as he gave billions of dollars to Iran, thus helping them toward developing a nuclear bomb. Obama flipped his finger at America as he opened the borders, allowed illegal alien criminals to run free in America, while he ordered the release of terrorists from GITMO. When not playing golf, Barack Obama signed one executive order after another, as he overstepped his authority. Under Obama’s watch, the IRS was used as a weapon against Christian conservative groups. With the help of then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Obama brought war to the Middle East, as one country toppled after another, in the so called ARAB SPRING, which was actually a takeover by the violent Muslim Brotherhood. This led to mass persecution of Christians and many of those countries are now hot bed breeding grounds for terrorism.
To sum up the past eight years, America is a different country now after Obama’s “hope and change” and we can say that Barack Obama was successful as he fundamentally transformed ‘America the Beautiful’ into America the divided and nearly conquered.
One of the most dangerous acts by Barack Hussein Obama was to stab Israel in the back and the heart. Even though Obama had many Jewish cabinet members working closely with him, such as Rahm Emanuel and Anthony Weiner, Obama made it clear to the world that he was no friend of Israel and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, to whom he treated with extreme disrespect, including meddling in the election process in Israel, to defeat Netanyahu. The Obama Administration took the side of the Palestinians, declaring support for the ‘two state solution’ and on December 23, 2016, just one day before Hanukkah was celebrated, America abstained from voting on a U.N. resolution that condemned Israel for building houses on God given land.
The Presidental campaign was nasty to say the least. Globalist world leaders dismissed the relevance of candidate Donald Trump. He ran on ‘America first’ and this violated globalists’ plans to devise a ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT. Donald Trump’s opponent was former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. She was funded by international bankers, Wall Street, Saudi Arabia , China and billionaire Nazi collaborator George Soros.
To many real Americans, a President Hillary Clinton would be a disaster for our nation. It was too scary to imagine how Clinton would sell out America to the highest bidder, while those around her were involved in satanic activities such as ‘spirit cooking’. How could God protect America, with this kind of evil having a hold on our nation’s capital? Hillary Clinton was to be the sweeper after Obama. While Obama broke and destroyed fundamental laws of America, Hillary would have swept up the mess. As Obama demolished America, Hillary Clinton would have thrown out the debris and America would have been brought down to the studs. A once free nation would have become a complete ruin.
On November 8, 2016, Donald Trump defeated Hillary Rodham Clinton. Many were stunned at her defeat, but those of us who prayed on bended knee for God’s mercy, were not surprised. Our prayers asked for God to forgive America, to have mercy on our nation, and to protect us from the evil to come by the actions of the ‘God haters’ in our government.
Many feel that Clinton’s defeat was indeed a reprieve from coming judgement and distruction by God. I have a different perspective about this.
The condition of the world now, after Obama and other globalists have done their best to destroy sovereign nations, is very perilous. Islamic invaders have been welcomed into countries throughout Europe. Islam and free nations do not mix. Islam means submission and that clashes with free societies where people have enjoyed free thinking, free expression and free speech. Free open societies are not perfect. As long as laws are respected, people can come and go with freedom to be who they want to be. In an Islamic state, there are severe restrictions and some people have more rights than others. Women are not given freedoms in Islamic states like they have in the West. Islam sees anyone who is not Islamic as being an infidel. Killing an ‘infidel’ is allowed by the Quran. This mentality completely and utterly clashes with free and law abiding societies.
Globalist leaders such as Angela Merkel, have opened their borders to Islamic-so-called-migrants, the excuse being that these countries need more workers. The media has sold this as helping refugees from Syria and Iraq, but few women and children are found among these ‘refugees’, most of them being men of military age. Those who are opposed to this have viewed these migrants as INVADERS and not workers.
Violent crime is on the rise in places where this was not so, just a short time ago. Germany, Sweden, Netherlands, Italy, Belgium, and France have reported an alarming rise in violent crimes like rape. Also, there have been horrible terrorist attacks in Germany, France, and Belgium by these so called refugees. It seems like the leaders allowing this invasion are blinded to the fact that they are inviting, with open arms, the very people that will destroy their countries from within. This Islamic invasion is taking place all over the planet, like seeds being planted for a future purpose.
Has America received a reprieve by the election of Donald Trump? One of Trump’s promises that has not gotten enough attention is his plan to move the U. S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, thus declaring before the entire world that the United States recognizes JERUSALEM AS THE CAPITAL OF ISRAEL.
Could it be that this is the reason why God Almighty allowed Donald Trump to become the President? It is a certainty that Hillary Clinton would never have done this. Instead, she would have furthered the backstabbing of Israel. Can we say that God wants the world to know that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel? Will Donald Trump acknowledge the JERUSALEM COVENANT, a document written by Rabbi Menachem Elon, a law professor and Orthodox rabbi, who specialized in traditional Jewish law. The covenant was presented to the Israeli government in 1992 on the 25th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem. It has been signed by rabbis, government leaders and thousand and thousands of Israel’s supporters.
The Jerusalem Covenant
“We have gathered together in Zion, national leaders and heads of our communities everywhere, to enter into a covenant with Jerusalem, as was done by the leaders of our nation and all the people of Israel upon Israel’s return to its Land from the Babylonian exile; and the people and their leaders will dwell in Jerusalem, the Holy City.
Once again, ‘our feet stand within your gates, O Jerusalem – Jerusalem built as a city joined together’ which ‘unites the people of Israel to one another’, and ‘links heavenly Jerusalem with earthly Jerusalem.’
We have returned to the place that the Lord vowed to bestow upon the descendants of Abraham, Father of our Nation; to the City of David, King of Israel; where Solomon, son of David, built a Holy Temple; a Capital City which became the Mother of all Israel; a metropolis for justice and righteousness and for the wisdom and insights of the ancient world; where a Second Temple was erected in the days of Ezra and Nehemiah. In this city the prophets of the Lord prophesied; in the City the Sages taught Torah; in this City the Sanhedrin convened in session in its stone chamber. ‘For there were the seats of Justice, the Throne of the House of David’, ‘for out of Zion shall go forth Torah, and the Word of the Lord from Jerusalem.’
Today, as of old, we hold fast to the truth of the words of the Prophets of Israel, that all the inhabitants of the world shall enter within the gates of Jerusalem: ‘And it shall come to pass at the end of days, the mountain of the House of the Lord will be well established at the peak of the mountains and will tower above the hills, and all the nation shall stream towards it.’ Each and every nation will live in it by its own faith: ‘For all the nation will go forward, each with its own Divine Name; we shall go in the name of the Lord our God forever and ever.’ And in this spirit the Knesset of the State of Israel has enacted a law: The places holy to the peoples of all religions shall be protected from any desecration and from any restriction of free access to them.
Jerusalem – peace and tranquility shall reign in the city: ‘Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; may those who love you be tranquil. May there be peace within your walls, and tranquility within your palaces.’ Out of Jerusalem, a message of peace went forth and shall yet go forth again to all the inhabitants of the earth: ‘And they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning-hooks; nation will not lift up sword against nation, nor shall they learn war anymore.’ Our sages, peace be upon them, said. In the future, The Holy One, the Blessed, will comfort Jerusalem only with peace..
From this place, we once again take this vow: ‘If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, may my right hand lose its strength; may my tongue cleave to my palate if I do not remember you, if I do not raise up Jerusalem at the very height of my rejoicing.’
And with all these understandings, we enter into this Covenant and write: ‘We shall bind you to us forever; we shall bind you to us with faithfulness, with righteousness and justice, with steadfast love and compassion.’ We love you, O Jerusalem, with eternal love, with unbounded love, under siege and when liberated from the yoke of oppressors. We have been martyred for you; we have yearned for you, we have clung to you. Our faithfulness to you we shall bequeath to our children after us. Forevermore our home shall be within you.”
When President Trump affirms that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, the dogs of hell will be unleashed on earth. They will be out for blood. Satan wants Jerusalem for himself. He has his minions on earth desperately trying to cut the city up, steal holy sites away from Israel and give away ‘land for peace’. God’s name is written on Jerusalem. Satan has no rights to this city but ever since his fall, in defiance of God, Lucifer has wanted Jerusalem for himself where he would be worshipped above God Almighty.
Isaiah 14:12-14 (KJV)
12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
President Trump’s plans to move the U. S. embassy to Jerusalem, means Trump agrees with God, that Jerusalem belongs to God’s chosen people. The world will disagree, and this move will unleash Satan’s fury not only against Trump, but also against the United States of America. Satan’s minions in the news media, our government, and globalists around the world, have been throwing fits of rage ever since Trump won the election. Could this explain the rabid hatred all these radicals have for Donald Trump?
We have witnessed the hand of God on this election. Christians on bended knee prayed hard and God heard our prayers. God’s will was for Donald Trump to be the 45th President, as all efforts to stop him failed. Is it also God’s desire that Jerusalem become the world’s center of attention now? Are we approaching God’s appointed time?
I believe the election of Donald Trump was allowed to happen, not as a reprieve, but as a PROPHECY ACCELERATOR. While many sit back and think we have been given a reprieve, it might be more correct to say that we have entered a new prophetic time frame.
Indeed, these could be interesting times. If Trump does fulfill his plan to officially acknowledge the capital of Israel to be Jerusalem, then America must expect the backlash from the world to be fierce, especially from Muslim nations. It could cause terrorist acts in America to seriously increase. We would be in perilous times for sure. This is the time to pray harder than we did before the election. We must pray that God’s will be done, and His hand to be upon our nation and President Trump.
Many ‘watchers on the wall’ believe the Rapture, or the calling out of the Body of Christ, will occur around the Jewish Feast of Trumpets, which occurs in the autumn. What if this event were to happen during Trump’s time in office? I have heard that he has chosen many born again Christians for key positions in his administration and some have said that Donald Trump himself became a born again Christian during the Presidential campaign. If this is correct, the Rapture could remove the top people from our government, leaving it in total confusion.
The Holy Bible says that all the nations of the world will come up against Israel in the end times. After the Rapture, governments around the world will have no Christian presence. Israel will not have any Christian ally nations. The Rapture of the Body of Christ is the CATALYST toward God’s appointed time.
Zechariah 12:1-3 (KJV)
12 The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.
2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
Could it be that before the Rapture of the church, God Almighty wants the world to know that Jerusalem belongs to Israel, His chosen people? Is President Trump the man selected to do this? Are we approaching a new prophetic phase during these end times? We will have to wait and see, and it could get a little scary out there.
This could be a VERY interesting and challenging year. So, stay faithful, hopeful, and prayed up.
