What You Don’t Know About the Presidency of Donald Trump
With references from “The Faith of Donald J. Trump”
By David Brody and Scott Lamb
God is the creator. Sometimes he takes an earthen vessel, an unworthy and broken person to use for a specific purpose. Often it is the least likely or the one overlooked by society. Other times it is someone who seems to have it all. Regardless it is always someone who makes themselves available for God to use and it is always someone obedient to the call of God upon their lives.
Chuck Colson the founder of Prison Ministries used to teach about that God’s common grace is bestowed upon unredeemed humanity such as judges, police, governors and rulers for the restraining of evil and God often establishes officials, even those who are not believers to restrain the evil in a society.
What the bible tells us is that when God calls us, he has already prepared the way and promises to be with us every step of the way. What we must do is prepare ourselves to be able to hear when God calls. We must then be obedient and say, “Yes Lord, here I am”.
Without going into a great deal of detail about Donald Trump I will say that God had been drawing him toward the presidency since the late 1980’s. This is verified by television interviews of Donald Trump by a host of television personalities. One thing about Donald Trump is that he just doesn’t run a race to be running; he doesn’t do something to say he tried either. Trump plans out the event or activity and when he commits himself, it’s to win. This was drilled into him by his NYMA instructor (1959 – 1964) who taught his students that winning wasn’t everything, winning was the only thing.
Back around 2000 Donald Trump met and became friends with television evangel Pastor Paula White. At the prompting of God she became a spiritual mentor and friend to show who God was. In 2012 Trump called her and said he was thinking about running for President. After a time of prayer he didn’t run, but he called again in 2015 and told her he felt God speaking to him to run. Paula White asked what she could do and he asked her to bring pastors in to him, she did.
It was during the pre-primary days in the fall of 2015 when the owner of a Dallas consulting firm Dr. Lance Wallnau correctly prophesied that Donald Trump would be the next President of the United States after hearing from God on two occasions. Dr. Wallnau did not know, nor had he met Trump yet God chose him to speak prophetically to Trump that he was “the next President of the United States and he will be the forty-fifth president, and he will be an Isaiah 45 president”.
Dr. Lance Wallnau was also a biblical teacher in Dallas, Texas yet when God spoke to him he didn’t know who Isaiah was talking about? So he opened the bible to Isaiah 45 and read, “Thus says the Lord to Cyrus whom I’ve anointed.” He knew that Donald Trump corresponded to the Cyrus character in the bible. He also knew that Donald Trump would be God’s wrecking ball – the forty-fifth president.
What also became evident was when God said “And I will build for Israel my people’s sake” and “Though you have not known me.” It was clear at this point that Donald Trump knew of and about God, but did not know God.
All this was relayed directly to Donald Trump in a room full of African-American pastors in a meeting at Trump Tower in New York City in 2015. Dr. Wallnau read the entire chapter 45 of Isaiah and cited that this was written 100 years before Cyrus became king.
Isaiah 45 English Standard Version (ESV)
Cyrus, God’s Instrument
45 Thus says the Lord to his anointed, to Cyrus,
whose right hand I have grasped,
to subdue nations before him
and to loose the belts of kings,
to open doors before him
that gates may not be closed:
2 “I will go before you
and level the exalted places,[a]
I will break in pieces the doors of bronze
and cut through the bars of iron,
3 I will give you the treasures of darkness
and the hoards in secret places,
that you may know that it is I, the Lord,
the God of Israel, who call you by your name.
4 For the sake of my servant Jacob,
and Israel my chosen,
I call you by your name,
I name you, though you do not know me.
5 I am the Lord, and there is no other,
besides me there is no God;
I equip you, though you do not know me,
6 that people may know, from the rising of the sun
and from the west, that there is none besides me;
I am the Lord, and there is no other.
7 I form light and create darkness;
I make well-being and create calamity;
I am the Lord, who does all these things.
8 “Shower, O heavens, from above,
and let the clouds rain down righteousness;
let the earth open, that salvation and righteousness may bear fruit;
let the earth cause them both to sprout;
I the Lord have created it.
9 “Woe to him who strives with him who formed him,
a pot among earthen pots!
Does the clay say to him who forms it, ‘What are you making?’
or ‘Your work has no handles’?
10 Woe to him who says to a father, ‘What are you begetting?’
or to a woman, ‘With what are you in labor?’”
11 Thus says the Lord,
the Holy One of Israel, and the one who formed him:
“Ask me of things to come;
will you command me concerning my children and the work of my hands?[b]
12 I made the earth
and created man on it;
it was my hands that stretched out the heavens,
and I commanded all their host.
13 I have stirred him up in righteousness,
and I will make all his ways level;
he shall build my city
and set my exiles free,
not for price or reward,”
says the Lord of hosts.
The Lord, the Only Savior
14 Thus says the Lord:
“The wealth of Egypt and the merchandise of Cush,
and the Sabeans, men of stature,
shall come over to you and be yours;
they shall follow you;
they shall come over in chains and bow down to you.
They will plead with you, saying:
‘Surely God is in you, and there is no other,
no god besides him.’”
15 Truly, you are a God who hides himself,
O God of Israel, the Savior.
16 All of them are put to shame and confounded;
the makers of idols go in confusion together.
17 But Israel is saved by the Lord
with everlasting salvation;
you shall not be put to shame or confounded
to all eternity.
18 For thus says the Lord,
who created the heavens
(he is God!),
who formed the earth and made it
(he established it;
he did not create it empty,
he formed it to be inhabited!):
“I am the Lord, and there is no other.
19 I did not speak in secret,
in a land of darkness;
I did not say to the offspring of Jacob,
‘Seek me in vain.’[c]
I the Lord speak the truth;
I declare what is right.
20 “Assemble yourselves and come;
draw near together,
you survivors of the nations!
They have no knowledge
who carry about their wooden idols,
and keep on praying to a god
that cannot save.
21 Declare and present your case;
let them take counsel together!
Who told this long ago?
Who declared it of old?
Was it not I, the Lord?
And there is no other god besides me,
a righteous God and a Savior;
there is none besides me.
22 “Turn to me and be saved,
all the ends of the earth!
For I am God, and there is no other.
23 By myself I have sworn;
from my mouth has gone out in righteousness
a word that shall not return:
‘To me every knee shall bow,
every tongue shall swear allegiance.’[d]
24 “Only in the Lord, it shall be said of me,
are righteousness and strength;
to him shall come and be ashamed
all who were incensed against him.
25 In the Lord all the offspring of Israel
shall be justified and shall glory.”
For the non-believer this is totally unbelievable.
For the believer we have example after example of God doing miracles like these throughout history (Adam and Eve; Noah; Moses; Cyrus; Jesus; Paul and many, many others).
In recent United States history we have George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Paul Revere, Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, Robert E. Lee, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, Barack Obama and now Donald Trump and many others.
These men are all common, ordinary men who rose under extra-ordinary circumstances. Each chosen and established by God, not for our benefit, but that God might be glorified.
What I see happening today is not simply an attack on President Donald Trump, but an attack on what God is doing through Donald Trump. Political Correctness has taken a firm grip on America. It will not be easily broken. It will take the steady hand of God using a fighter, a warrior yielding a sword to restrain and defeat the evil of our society.
So long as President Donald Trump remains focused on his mission, continues to place his trust in God there is nothing that can stop him because with God all things are possible and man with God is a majority. May God bless the United States and may God bless President Donald J. Trump.
As Paul Harvey would say, now you know the rest of the story. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
