Donald John Trump - Cyrus The Great

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.


Isaiah 45
"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
Trump: trumpeter

  1. What a great post! A totally unique way of looking at the Trump phenomenon. I live In Australia, and even down here the entire mainstream media is anti-Trump. Right from the start I had thought Trump to be the best out of a bad lot of those running for the Presidency, but as an orthodox Christian I had certain reservations about him. Your post however has given me a fressh perspective. Thank you. -John, Sydney, Australia

  2. This is quite an interesting post! I live in Australia, and even down here the entire mainstream media is full on anti-Trump. I have always thought that Trump was the best out a very bad group of those running for the Presidency, but as an Orthodox Christian I had certain reservations about him, however you have given me a fresh perspective on the matter!

    Is the writer of this article Orthodox? Did you come up with this on your own? Or are you merely accepting and restating what other preachers and false prophets of the heterodox community have been stating?

    This is not prophecy or in line with the Holy Spirit, but of another spirit. It is wishful thinking and bad theology, eschatology, and spiritual blogging.

    Forgive me for being blunt, but time is too short to be diplomatic and flattering.

    Israel is now the Church, not the land of apostates in Palestine masquerading as "Jews", claiming the promises of Abraham. Seeing how the blogger is of a Southern Baptist background, I can understand the hanging on to old paradigms, as is common for us converts to be tainted with.

    For the readers of this blog who may actually be reading these comments, the promises of the land to Abraham were fulfilled by Joshua and Solomon, and are not a futuristic prophecy to be fulfilled as many erroneously teach and believe today among the heterodox. See Joshua 21:43 and 1 Kings 4:21 (in the Protestant Bibles without the Septuagint canon of the Apostles).

    Those who believe this delusion of the "prophecy of Cyrus" about Trump are wishing it to be true. However, Trump's Zionist connections are blatantly obvious for anyone who is willing to honestly look at those connections. In addition, one only has to stop comparing him to Hillary and actually listen to his words about moving the US embassy to Jerusalem, thus legitimizing the apartheid of Israel as well as the many other pro-Israeli comments he has made that too many ignore or excuse away.

    For those who are ignorant of geopolitics and foreign policy, you must acquaint yourself with the names of Genel Energy, Genie Energy, Jacob Rothschild, Nathaniel Rothschild, James Woolsey, and many others to see how this game of the Hegelian Dialect is still being played upon the American people.

    Just because Trump is playing his part extremely well and the "establishment" is opposing him, does not make him the "man of God" or the "man of prophecy" many are wishing him to be. He is a "Frankenstein" who has gotten out of hand and may actually believe he will win and be able to do most of what he thinks he can do. Those in power may have wanted him to contain the angst of the masses ready to rise up, but they have no desire to relinquish power to him. Yet, if he does succeed, keep in mind, that those in his midst and behind him will make sure he does not change what goes against the making of "greater Israel" (from the Nile to Euphrates), which is the Zionist/Evangelical deception in play, which is of Anti-Christ and not of Christ.

    Forgive me brother, but you need to dig deeper and repent of this blog and correct it according to Orthodox teaching and in line with the words of the Saints and not modernistic beliefs and teachings, even if they come from those who call themselves "Orthodox."

    1. Anon: Try stepping off the soapbox. You might see better. Put simply: God chooses whom he will at times in history. Like Cyrus the Great, Trump will protect God's people. Yes, the new Israel is the Church. Have you missed Trump's defense of Christians and his plans to stop the slaughter of Christians around the world and halt the increasing persecution of Christians in America? Also his plan to unmuzzle the pastors in America to allow them to speak freely from the pulpit without threat? The post is obviously not a direct correlation to the old Israel of Cyrus. Nothing about the nation of Israel suggested.

    Very very prophetic prophecy to come.....when none of this was even in motion fully. God, choses those who will do His Work and not falter, because Jesus Christ has His hand on Donald John Trump tightly as He holds all His " Anointed."

    Very very prophetic prophecy of what's going to happen. God created Donald John Trump to uphold His own Plans for the USA and to protect the saints of Jesus Christ in the world as well. Our children need their morals and values restored to the fullest extent. Truth wins evey time !

    1. David, nothing suggested, nothing inferred in that regard. But sarcasm is witty sometimes...sometimes.

  10. These are not the thoughts of a former Southern Baptist turned Orthodox. These are the thoughts a Southern Baptist who dishonestly and deceptively presents himself as something he isn't - Orthodox.
    If you want to be in the Church, check you baggage at the door.

    1. Thank you Gavin. Now that I know you are a gatekeeper of all that is Orthodox, I have hope that my dishonesty and deception will remain in check. When is your book coming out? I will add it to my library. May I direct you to a prior post? "Once a Convict Always a Convict." Seems converts will always be sub-orthodox, sub-par, and sub-spiritual. We will never be as good as the real cradle Orthodox. I sure hope Jesus grades on a curve.
