Times and Seasons: God is sovereign over all. So, why Donald Trump for the US presidency when so many in America and across the world despise him?
The simple answer is that God wants him in office. Why? Because he supports Christian freedom of speech, and many of the things Christians fight for, the right to life of the fetus being the greatest of issues.
That’s the simple answer.
I believe it goes deeper. God goes deep, doesn’t He?
I believe Trump exposes the deceit and control of an elite class and the media.
In his rudeness, he exposes the hypocrisy and rudeness of the elite and the media bias.
Some Christian circles have been saying Trump is a Cyrus for our times ( Christian Post ), King Cyrus being the historic pagan king who enabled the Jewish people to return to their homeland after 70 years of exile ( King Cyrus of Ancient Persia ). I agree that is possible. But there is something as important.
Donald Trump is fearless.
While perfect love casts out all fear, and Trump does not – at least on the surface – appear to be loving, fear is certainly how the enemy manages to control the words and actions of people who live in fear.
Trump does not appear to live in fear. He battles back at those who reproach him. There might be a better way, but for now, this is who the man is. He draws contention but does not fear it.
And in fact, if he is sincere, as he claims, to be acting for the benefit of “the people” then his reactionary contentious nature, while often unpalatable, is a means of protecting the rights of “the people” who have been silenced, duped, coerced and forced into accepting socialist liberal agenda for years, under the guise of political correctness and an anti-racist/anti-gay banner.
The elite, with their hidden agendas, won’t admit their schemes to global domination in business and culture. The media either are too naive to see they are being played, or are in on the schemes. And Donald Trump, like the large faction of sincere Christians worldwide who see the anti-Christ in the liberal agenda, won’t cooperate with it.
There are Believers who don’t see the schemes. I don’t understand that, but I don’t think it makes them less Christian. God reveals to whom He will reveal. Nevertheless I see it, and a huge proportion of Christians, by the power of His Holy Spirit, see it.
As for Donald Trump? We don’t know to what degree he is a Christian. That is really between the man and God. But he certainly has been given the eyes to see the reality of what is going on against the Judeo-Christian culture on which the Americas and Europe were built, the courage to fight against it, and the platform in which to do so.
Why Donald Trump?
God has allowed him the office of the President of the United States in order to
- free Christians from “captivity”,
- battle against a force of evil that is self-interested, self-righteous, and self-glorifying, all in the name of human rights and ultimately,
- bring the Lord closer to his return.
What should we do?
Pray. Pray for the leader of the United States: pray for his protection and the protection of his family, pray for his relationship with God, and pray for those who would have ears to hear and eyes to see the workings of God through him in these days.
