Donald Trump: An Unlikely Prophetic Voice for World Peace

Donald Trump speaks to the Muslim world and says the path to peace is possible but only if the Muslim world will drive out the radical terrorists, giving them no home, no finance and no ideological support.

On Sunday 21st May 2017, the president of the United States made a landmark speech in front of the heads of state of the Suni Muslim world. He gave, I believe, a prophetic vision for the future of the Middle East, speaking about: if… you go this way, you will have this but if… you do not go this way, you will have that.

His “this” was a picture of prosperity, where men, women, and children of all faiths, prosper and respect one another, sharing the planet together in harmony. The Arab countries of the Middle East, North Africa and the Far East will prosper.

“That” was the continuance of evil and barbarism.

What struck me was his way of splitting the muslims between those of faith and those of terrorism. He said, “Terrorists do not worship God, they worship death.” People of religion are good but barbaric criminal extremists are evil.

He emphasised the necessity to “drive them out”… that the Muslim world will have to drive out the terrorists if they are to achieve the prosperity they seek.

I have followed politics for many years. I have never heard a secular politician say the way to peace is for the people of the three Abrahamic faiths to¬†unite in their acceptance of one another and their working together as a condition of peace, and yet Donald Trump — laughing stock according to so many journalists and professional politicians — declared the truth no political leader has dared to say: that world peace depends upon the religions of Abraham. He didn’t declare Jesus but at least he recognised that peace will not be won through human rights or politics but through faith in God.

That’s fresh and that’s powerful. It puts responsibility where it belongs and brings hope to an otherwise dying world.

Donald Trump’s speech was one of the most powerful speeches I have ever heard or read. Very encouraging.

I believe that from the Christian perspective and the good of mankind as a whole that President Trump’s objectives promote decency and fairness and what is right for society to function in an orderly fashion. His unpopularity is based on nothing but the good that he is trying to do. A lot of bad people try to destroy anything good and I have believed that since his election but even more over the past few days, that we need to pray for the President’s safety and protection and that of his family. My fear is that those who do not like what he is doing will try to destroy it by whatever means they can but God is more powerful than the Devil. I believe that if enough of us pray for the President and his work to make the world a better place, God will see our sincerity in wanting what is right and will surely protect the President from harm. But we must keep praying for that and not become complacent.

Amen, David. We pray for his protection, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, for his marriage and for his family, in their bodies, minds and hearts.
I stand with you in prayer.
Thanks for writing. Feel free to pass on this newsletter or this item. I’d love for more to read, to think and to pray.
Shalom, God’s peace to you,

I made a big mistake Sarah! Just a typing error but a bad one nonetheless! I should neber have used a capital letter for the devil. President Trump spoke during the week about losers. The devil is the biggest loser of all.

Devil biggest loser of all – yes indeed, both figuratively and literally.
Bless you!:)
And we pray that as God hastens these last days, that Believers in Jesus who suffer persecution will stand fast to their faith (I write as news has just broken that a bus of Coptic Christians in Egypt have just been killed).
Father, forgive, heal, transform, and may Jesus return soon!
