Donald J Trump – POTUS
1 Timothy 6:10, “For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.”
Everyone is quick to point out that Donald Trump’s past has been shaded with sexual impropriety and lust, citing his eye for beautiful women, his vast fortune and his vanity of placing his brand name “Trump” everywhere and on everything he’s done. Donald Trump is simply a sinful, fallen man. Who can argue with that, as it is the nature of man?
Success did not what bring Donald Trump into the White House. Not by a long shot. So why would anybody who had everything money could buy, trade it for the scorn of the very people who had previously sought out being seen with him in public? Maybe a better question is why do the very people he has pledged to help “We the people” constantly jump on the “Dump Trump” bandwagon?
Donald Trump is a businessman who has been in the company of movers and shakers up and down the eastern seaboard. Many of those have been presidents, congressmen and women, the sort of people one must seek out when dealing with real estate and construction projects. It’s commonly called greasing the wheels, the way lobbyists have been doing with members of congress for years. The world views as it being successful.
What many people are unaware of is that as early as 1984 Donald Trump has had his eye on the office of the presidency. President Nixon once said of Donald Trump, “He has the stuff” and “If he runs he’ll win” as paraphrased from a passage in Roger Stone’s book “The Making of the President 2016”.
Donald Trump was born in Queens, New York and was a bright energetic child so his parents sent him to the New York Military Academy where he did very well both academically and socially. He was a star athlete and became student leader by the time he graduated in 1964.
Donald Trump graduated from the Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania in 1968 with an economics degree. This was a time when economics was not a very well-known or popular field of study.
Donald Trump developed his own work ethics during the summers working with and watching his father who was a successful real estate developer in New York City. During the early years in business he made many decisions, some of which often led to failure. Yet he kept moving forward, learning from those mistakes and succeeded in building what we know as the Trump Empire. Donald Trump coined the family name “Trump” as his way of taking personal responsibility for the business projects he built.
I believe that this competitive drive is something that God placed in Donald Trump, even before he was born. The bible tells us that we are each born with a purpose.
Jeremiah 1:5, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
In Donald Trump this is evidenced by the very fact that he was born.
I also believe that events shaped the life of Donald Trump as God prepared this obviously driven man for the task that even he was not aware of.
Several years ago Donald Trump was asked about running for president, and he said that he would only run for president if he could win. Being the competitive person that he is, he would not run to get more votes than the other guy, but to win.
What I have written about previously is that God saw what America had become since our founding and knew the direction the nation was headed. Many believers have prayed for God to deliver us from the snares of the devil and bring this nation back to becoming a godly nation once again.
When we become complacent God will use events and/or people to bring our focus and attention back to him.
Romans 13:1, “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.”
Not to be confused with the political parties created by man, which cause the people to become divided.
Luke 11: 17, “Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them: “Any kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and a house divided against itself will fall.”
In recent years America had become a divided nation politically.
As we look back historically at the presidencies of George H. W. Bush; William J. Clinton; George W. Bush; Barack H. Obama we can see that our leaders and our nation have been tested on the world stage.
The world views Donald Trump as unpredictable and therefore a threat to the status quo.
I believe that God placed within Donald J. Trump the drive and determination to the White House and that drive would not be deterred. At some point during the campaign Donald Trump met the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Jesus who is the Christ touched the heart of this man and changed his vision into a purpose to bring God back into America.
Yes Donald Trump is at times outlandish in his “tweets” or his choice of words, yet he remains focused on what in necessary to bring peace and security to a politically divided nation. His vision of “draining the swamp” in Washington has been met with fierce resistance from those who are unwilling to give up the power they have over “We The People” and it takes a man like Donald Trump to follow the leading of a God who is all powerful.
Whether you love him or hate him you must acknowledge him as the leader chosen by God for such a time as this. I am the Real Truckmaster!
