Donald John Trump is not a Hitler, or a Mussolini. He is not racist or a fascist. He uses profane language publicly, has been married three times, infers he has never asked for God's forgiveness, and seems unfamiliar with the content of the Bible. He is a fighter and scrapper when it comes to crushing his foes. Even so, Donald John Trump may very well be a Cyrus The Great, the Persian King, who, although we was not a believer,
"made the Israelites great again, by releasing them from captivity, restoring them to their Promised Land, and rebuilding the Jerusalem Temple." (Steven Prothero)
Like Cyrus, Donald John Trump very well may be God-chosen, an anointed one, for this moment in history. He may be the unexpected and overlooked answer to the prayer of Christians to heal their land, the United States of America, and restore its righteous place in the world. Cyrus was the only non-believer whom God called "His anointed." He is historic evidence that God uses whom He will to fulfill his purpose through history.
"Thus saith the LORD to His anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him, and to loose the loins of kings; to open the doors before him, and that the gates may not be shut: I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the doors of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron; And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I am the LORD, who call thee by thy name, even the God of Israel. For the sake of Jacob My servant, and Israel Mine elect, I have called thee by thy name, I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known Me. I am the LORD, and there is none else, beside Me there is no God; I have girded thee, though thou hast not known Me; That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside Me; I am the LORD; and there is none else; I form the light, and create darkness; I make peace, and create evil; I am the LORD, that doeth all these things."
Those who know the man, Trump, in private say he has a sincere passion and love for the Christian people, and listens to religious leaders in sincere quietness and humility. Outwardly, often in his bombastic tone, he demands the nations of the world come to the aid of Christians whose rights are being oppressed and whose lives are being taken in genocide. He has proclaimed that he will aide them, stop the genocide and restore religious liberty in his own country. He has made a covenant to use the forse of might to "knock the hell" out of those who are killing Christians and "others" and to create an atmosphere where it is safe again even to say aloud, "Merry Christmas."
To accomplish this, he has had to tear down the political strongholds, the seats of power and finance and he has been successful in doing so. There is a hedge of protection around him and a power of authority that is unprecedented. The crowds and throngs of Americans who swarm to see him in person recognize that something is different, something is happening, and there is no lack of opinions on what this may be. But the majority of voters don't care that all is defined or lined out in policy papers. Past rules and criteria for choosing leaders do not apply. They sense that this man is the man, the anointed one (def: dedicated to the service of God) and that God is involved in what many are calling a "Movement."
I suggest that it is a Movement of God, with a leader that confounds the wise and the religious and the elite and the powerful. I suggest that this Movement of God is stirring up demons and setting them to flight. I suggest that Donald John Trump will be the next president of the United States of America and that the foundation on which this nation was founded will be rebuilt as a world that cannot be shaken. The calling, character and purpose of a chosen man is often found in his name. Perhaps Donald John Trump's name is a reflection of what is and what is to come:
Donald : ruler of the world
John: God is gracious
