Politics 2018: My views… for one week (day 5)

3 Nov

Note: I delete, block or unfriend contrary or oppositional comments.

I love knowing what God thinks.  It’s so liberating when we know what He thinks and begin to ‘track’ with Him.  It empowers us!  No more ambiguity or doubt.  Actually, we were made to walk, talk and partner with God.  And the cool thing is that he wants to train us to recognize His voice (John 10:27) and partner with Him as a “friend with a friend”.  God’s ways are so much better… and they’re so much more fun!

Today, I’m highlighting Lance Wallnau.  He’s a very respected man who is equally comfortable standing before world government officials or preaching in a church.  His insights are cutting edge and his prophetic words are fresh and bold.  I think you’ll especially like the following!

Relevant Lance Wallnau prophecies:

“Donald Trump is a wrecking ball to the spirit of political correctness.” – Oct 2016

“I was given an image of Trump along with the words “45th president of the United States” and a directive to read Isaiah 45 which begins with “Thus saith the Lord to Cyrus whom I have anointed…” Cyrus was a heathen king whom God used to protect the Jews.  God can raise up secular rulers “to protect His interests.”  Specifically, God used Cyrus in three ways: to deal with terror, to restore economic stability and to honor the Jews’ houses of faith.  God will sometimes raise up non-believers and confer on them “common grace” (not the grace of salvation but grace to protect and assist in carrying out a mission) so they can be used by Him.  Past leaders like Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill and FDR are other examples of Cyrus-type leaders.”

Let’s read Isaiah 45… and as we do, let’s replace Cyrus’ name with Trump’s name and see “if the shoe fits” for both men.

1 “This is what the Lord says to his anointed,
to Cyrus, whose right hand I take hold of
to subdue nations before him
and to strip kings of their armor,
to open doors before him
so that gates will not be shut:
2 I will go before you
and will level the mountains;
I will break down gates of bronze
and cut through bars of iron.
3 I will give you hidden treasures,
riches stored in secret places,
so that you may know that I am the Lord,
the God of Israel, who summons you by name.
4 For the sake of Jacob my servant,
of Israel my chosen,
I summon you by name
and bestow on you a title of honor,
though you do not acknowledge me.
5 I am the Lord, and there is no other;
apart from me there is no God.
I will strengthen you,
though you have not acknowledged me,
6 so that from the rising of the sun
to the place of its setting
people may know there is none besides me.
I am the Lord, and there is no other.
7 I form the light and create darkness,
I bring prosperity and create disaster;
I, the Lord, do all these things.

(Read Ezra 1 for more on King Cyrus)

Did you notice that nowhere in this passage does God say, “I’m picking Cyrus/Trump because he was a Godly man.”  The actual fact is, Cyrus/Trump is a heathen… he “hadn’t acknowledged” God.  But God needed a man to do a specific job… and He can pick whomever He wants.  God says, “I will summon you by name”…. and God’s intention is to use Cyrus/Trump as a ‘wrecking ball’ to “subdue nations”.  God will give him “treasures and riches” so that Cyrus/Trump would know that God is the Lord.

Does any of this sound like the prophecies that we’ve visited over the last 4 days?  And it even explains some of Trump’s foibles, follies and social failures.

But let’s move on.  To confirm Wallnau’s parallel of Cyrus and Trump, you won’t believe what happened in Israel this year!  At the relocation of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, several Jewish entities created a ‘temple coin’ to commemorate two foreign leaders who lived about 2500 years apart, but who rose to strongly support Israel… yep, you guessed it – it is Cyrus & Trump.

In their 70th year of captivity in Babylon, King Cyrus authorized and funded the Jews’ return to their land to rebuild Jerusalem and their temple.

On the 70th anniversary of Israel becoming a nation, Trump declared Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and moved the US Embassy to Jerusalem.

Can anyone say, AMAZING! 

Back in 2016, when Wallnau gave his comparison of Trump and Cyrus, no one could have guessed that two years later, Israel would mint a ‘coin’ emblazoned with both of their heads.  This is startling confirmation of Wallnau’s word, in my opinion!  Although both were highly unlikely picks, Trump, like Cyrus, is being used by God to bless the Jews.

Wallnau has met with Trump on multiple occasions and in a recent podcast, Wallnau conveys Trump’s warning and entreaty to Christians

Another time Trump speaks to Christian leaders: “Every other ideological group in the country has a voice.  If you don’t mind me saying so, you guys have gotten soft,” Trump said, according to Wallnau.  “People who identify themselves as ‘Christian’ make up probably the single largest constituency in the country, but there is absolutely no unity, no punch … not in political consensus or any other area I can see.” – Trump 2016

In the last few days, we’ve highlighted four clear prophetic voices that heralded the similar content… and were spoken long before the last election, saying that Trump would become America’s president.  And the words came to pass!  In my mind and heart, that clears up any doubt as to whether Trump is our God-appointed president.  I don’t have to love all of his actions and attributes, but at the very least, I MUST NOT oppose him.  Case in point: Saul had murder in his heart to kill David, but David said, “I will not touch the Lord’s anointed.” (I Sam 26:9; Ps 105:15) (I’m not likening Trump to Saul, I am only highlighting the fear of the Lord that governed David’s responses.)

Disclaimer again: I am not vouching for the future claims of any of these prophetic voices!  It’s up to you to determine what you believe.  For me, I must pray for Trump and release Heaven’s angel guardians around him to escort him into the fulfillment of all that is in God’s heart for his presidency.

Tomorrow we’ll talk about how our serious core life-values affect everything else; personal life, societal norms, business decisions, government policies and politics, etc.  When the foundation is flawed, most of the rest of the house will give evidence of that problem in the foundation.
