I’ve been reviewing words I’ve given over the last 3+ years about the Trump presidency. Contrary too many other prophetic voices, I have stated that his reelection is not a certainty and that prayer is needed, especially concerning the inflammatory nature of the president’s rhetoric. On January 5th I prophesied that impeachment will fail, that the president will be reelected, but that prayer Is still needed because it’s not over until it’s over. Much yet hangs in the balance. Apart from prayer and the intervention of God, all could still go south.
For all of his obvious flaws, we have a president with an impressive record of successes and benefits to every segment of our society, too lengthy to list here, who stands openly pro-life and who favors both the church and Israel. For those who wonder why evangelical Christians could vote for such a flawed man, I just now explained why. The opposing party does not reflect our values on these issues.
The nation is at a tipping point. If the president is not reelected, expect economic collapse as the gains of the last three years are reversed, while policies that have never worked, and never will work, are passed into law. If the president is reelected, I have prophesied riots and violence in places where the hatred that has divided this nation will shift from political conflict and division into open and physical demonstrations of rage. In no case, under no outcome, can we expect peace in the aftermath.
I therefore, again, lift up a call to my fellow Spirit-filled Christians to determine not to participate in the rising tide of hatred, but rather to shine with the light of God in the midst of gathering darkness. Again, I call for intense and consistent prayer, and, again, I point to Isaiah 60:1-3:
“Arise, shine; for your light has come, And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness will cover the earth And deep darkness the peoples; But the Lord will rise upon you And His glory will appear upon you. Nations will come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising.”
