Unless we know that we have really heard from the Lord we cannot move or speak. Yes we can hope and pray or quote a certain passage of scripture but we can only speak up and act when we have truly heard from the Lord concerning a matter as the Scripture says in 1 Corinthians 14:8.
“For if the trumpet makes an uncertain sound, who will prepare himself for battle?”
That’s why it is so necessary, as I wrote in a previous article: “Do we really hear from God?” that we remain silent – fully trusting on the Lord’s revelation through His Word and Spirit – till we have heard from Him whose ways and ideas are often so surprisingly different than ours.
Then we can pray not only: “God let your will be done” but as the prophets of old, like Samuel who acted out God’s will when he anointed David to be king and Elijah who anointed that fierce leader Jehu to be king over Israel, we shall be also told what to do besides our prayers to see God’s will happen in the affairs of our nations. May it truly be so!
I have one more thing to say on this matter. I know there are various Christian men and women who believe they also have heard from God and I can so understand them feeling there are other candidates running at this time for the presidency of the United States of America much more Christian than the sometimes crude and flamboyant Donald Trump.
All I can hope is that, knowing that when their perceived candidate will not be sealed by God Himself and actually become the president, that they will learn the lesson from this as the Lord is well able to place the man of His choice in the White House, which He will.
I therefore once more enclose hereby my message ‘Donald Trump?’ and my 3 minutes video:
May thus Donald Trump and his future team become the most pro-Israel President ever to sit in the White House, I pray.
May this be so, not because in America or in the West we deserve this but also because of God’s mercy and love for His people Israel!
“And [Elijah] said, “I have been very zealous for the Lord God of hosts; because the children of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, torn down Your altars, and killed Your prophets with the sword. I alone am left; and they seek to take my life.” Then the Lord said to him: “Go, return on your way to the Wilderness of Damascus; and when you arrive, anoint Hazael as king over Syria. Also you shall anoint Jehu the son of Nimshi as king over Israel. And Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abel Meholah you shall anoint as prophet in your place. It shall be that whoever escapes the sword of Hazael, Jehu will kill; and whoever escapes the sword of Jehu, Elisha will kill. Yet I have reserved seven thousand in Israel, all whose knees have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him,”1 Kings 19:14-18.
Based on this story of Elijah at Horeb when he felt there was no more hope for his Jezebel, Ahab run nation and sighed: ‘Let me die’, the Lord spoke to me that as then, also now in relation to the US, He needed a Jehu-like leader to be anointed and a Elijah-like prophet like Elisha became. In other words His answer to the desperate situation in the land was a strong fierce leadership, both in the political as well as the spiritual dimensions.
The reason that there was still hope for a new leadership under Jehu and Elisha in Israel during those days was the fact that 7000 Israelites had not yet bowed their knees to Baal. This surely can be said also about all those intercessors who, having cleansed themselves in the blood of the Lamb, have stood in true intercession for their nation in the United States.
Ever since the Lord showed me this story in relation to how to pray and work for the US nation, I have been asking the Lord “Who then is the Jehu for America?” Then came all the Republican candidates who offered themselves as possible candidates for the presidency of the United States. It is only Donald Trump which I believe comes nearest to be that Jehu for America! There is much more I could share about this but I can tell you this answer of mine comes after much thought and prayer.
The following messages which two sincere servants of the Lord believe to have received from the Lord confirm this matter. They are quite amazing.
In acolumn published in Christian Post, Jeremiah Johnson of Behold the Man Ministries in Lakeland, Florida, said he was praying several weeks ago, “when God began to speak to me concerning the destiny of Donald Trump in America:”
“The Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, “Trump shall become My trumpet to the American people, for he possesses qualities that are even hard to find in My people these days. Trump does not fear man nor will he allow deception and lies to go unnoticed. I am going to use him to expose darkness and perversion in America like never before, but you must understand that he is like a bull in a china closet.
Many will want to throw him away because he will disturb their sense of peace and tranquility, but you must listen through the bantering to discover the truth that I will speak through him. I will use the wealth that I have given him to expose and launch investigations searching for the truth. Just as I raised up Cyrus to fulfill My purposes and plans, so have I raised up Trump to fulfill my purposes and plans prior to the 2016 election.
You must listen to the trumpet very closely for he will sound the alarm and many will be blessed because of his compassion and mercy. Though many see the outward pride and arrogance, I have given him the tender heart of a father that wants to lend a helping hand to the poor and the needy, to the foreigner and the stranger.”
Johnson cited the specific Old Testament example of God personally selecting the non-believing, pagan King Cyrus to work on His behalf, as recounted in the 45th chapter of the Book of Isaiah.
Lana Vawser from Australia writes in Charisma Magazine (October 11, 2015).
“Firstly, I want to preface this word by saying that I do not have a political agenda for the United States of America. I am simply one person in Australia who has a huge heart of love for this beautiful nation and to see the destiny of the United States established and the Kingdom of God extended, releasing a huge wave of revelation of His goodness and love. I also want to say that I do not base what I am about to share on any ‘policies’ that I have heard, but simply what I believe the Lord revealed to me in a dream concerning the candidates. This word is not in any way to ‘sway’ anyone in their political views, but simply to release a revelation from the Lord that I believe needs to be covered in prayer.
I had a dream recently where I was in a political arena and I saw Donald Trump and he was passionately putting forward his policies. In this dream I could not “hear” what he was saying, I just remember seeing him speaking with great passion.
Suddenly, I was lifted above the United States of America and I saw the nation as if I was looking at a map. Written across the United States of America was the word “TRUMP” in big letters.
As I looked at this word suddenly the letters began to rearrange and the word went from “TRUMP” to “TRIUMPH”.
I then heard the Lord speak loudly in my dream “TRUMP SHALL LEAD THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA INTO TRIUMPH!!!”
As I was waking up out of the dream I heard the words “TRUMP SHALL LEAD THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA INTO VICTORY!!!”
As I came to the end of typing this dream I heard the words “Angels of triumph have been assigned to Trump.”
I believe the Lord is inviting us to seek His heart and to partner with Him in prayer to see the United States of America brought back into a place of godly victory and triumph in whichever way that manifests.
I am simply releasing that which was released to me.
Standing with you in prayer my friends in the United States of America.”
May this all lead us into true prayer and intercession for this man and his family and staff, I pray.
