Is Donald Trump a Christian? Before you jump to a conclusion one way or another . . . read this article

Is President Donald Trump a Christian? Many would strongly assert that this could not possibly be true. They point to the accusations that he colluded with Russia to affect the 2016 election. They ignore the fact that after years of investigation and 30 million dollars of our tax dollars, even his political enemies could find no evidence to back their accusations. Then they charged him with breaking the law with a quid pro quo in his call with the leader of Ukraine. This attempt to remove him from office failed when, once again no evidence of wrong doing could be proved at his Senate trial. But yet in the minds of so many, because the daily incessant lies spoken about him in the main stream news media, he has to be guilty of something.

      The main stream media have taken a page out of the playbook of Joseph Goebbels, Hitler's minister of propaganda. He said, "If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it, and you will even come to believe it yourself." He also said, "A lie told once remains a lie but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth." Lies are told about Trump continually by the press who are tirelessly trying to trap him and phrase questions in the press conferences that makes him look like he is the one who is lying. The examples of the lies and distortions told about Trump are too multudinous to even begin to cover in this article. But because that is all so many hear about the President in the news media, it is not surprising that so many in our country view him as an immoral man.

      Others point to his sometimes prideful disposition or the way he calls his opponents names. He couldn't possibly be a Christian could he? I really don't know. The purpose of this article is not to prove that he is a Christian. I only know that God loves imperfect people and that even after a divine encounter, often bad habits do not just immediately disappear. Sanctification, a big theological word that speaks of the process of a Christian gradually taking on the attributes of God . . . His holiness, His love, His mercy, etc. . . . gradually happens over the course of one's lifetime. So Trump could be a Christian who God is still working in. What you do does not make you a Christian.  Good works will not get you into heaven.  Becoming a Christian occurs when anyone receives God's mercy and allows Jesus to live His life through them.  Let me give you a definition of Christian . . . Christ in you, living His life through you, without any help from you.  The Christian life is not our responsibility . . . it is our response to His ability in us.  To the degree we learn to submit to His Word, which is His will, we will see our words, our behavior and our attitudes changed.  But that is a life long journey. The doing or the works that reflect the nature of God are manifested as a Christian draws closer and becomes more intimate with God. Regardless of the imperfections of Trump, I cannot make a judgment whether Trump is a Christian or not. That is between Trump and God. Man looks on the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart.

      As I said, I really don't know if Donald Trump is a Christian. But I will say, and give evidence that God has chosen him for a time such as this to be used for His purposes. What has he been used of God to do?

1. Trump has done more to fight for religious freedom than any President in history.
2. After the many years that prayer has been taken out of the schools, Trump signed an executive order allowing students to pray in school.
3. Trump restored the National Day of prayer when Obama had discontinued it. Toward the beginning of the corona virus crisis he called for a national day for Americans to pray.
4. Trump is the only President to allow hands to be laid on him to receive prayer from Christian leaders.
5. Trump is the only President to allow a worship service to be held in the White House.
6. When governors around the country had shutdown churches from meeting, Trump came out and demanded that churches nation wide be opened up. He rightly pointed out that it is wrong to declare liquor stores and abortion clinics essential services and not churches.
7. He has done more for the unborn and the right to life movement than any President in history. He is the first President to ever do a personal appearance to speak to the crowd of pro-life people at the March For Life in Washington D.C. He also has put in two pro-life leaning supreme court judges.
8. The Bible says He will bless those that bless Israel and curse those that curse Israel. Trump has shown more support for Israel than any President in history. He is the only President to move the American Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. He is also the only President to recognize the Golan Heights as unquestionably belonging to Israel.
9. He has also vanquished the enemies of Israel, wiping out Isis, eliminating two of the most notorious terrorists in the world and tearing up the Iran nuclear deal which would have given the biggest enemy of Israel a clear path to develop a nuclear weapon which they openly say they will use against Israel.

     These are just some of the things God has used Trump to do that are in agreement with Kingdom principles.


      In fact, there is a connection between Israel, which is the apple of God's eye, and Trump. Israel was born, when in November of 1947, the documents were signed to make them a nation. Donald Trump was born in that same year, 1947. Seven is God's number. I don't think it is just a coincidence that from the day of Donald Trump's birth to the day he was sworn into office as the President on January 20th, 2017 . . . it was exactly 70 years, 7 months and 7 days . . . three sevens, 777, God's number!

      Let me discuss just a few things in history that point to Donald Trump being called to be the President of the United States. One thing you must know, . . . often history repeats itself. The book of Ecclesastes says in chapter 1 verse 9, "The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun."

THE PARADIGM
There is a book titled, "The Paradigm" by Jonathan Cahn, that puts forth an incredible parallel between some individuals whose lives were recorded in detail in the Old Testament and individuals who have had an impact in the modern times that we live. This book lays out some unbelievable comparisons between Ahab and Jezebel in the Bible and Bill and Hillary Clinton and also an uncanny comparison between a man named Jehu in the Old Testament and Donald Trump. I am only going to mention a few of the parallels. I highly recommend reading the book. You will be stunned.

      Here are some of the parallels between Ahab and Jezebel and Bill and Hillary Clinton that are found in the book. Queen Jezebel was raised under the worship of the goddess Ashtoreth and thus was an advocate of female power. She also championed Baal Worship involving the offering of children. Hillary Clinton has been considered a lifelong advocate of feminism for quite some time and was voted the chief advocate of abortion by Planned Parenthood – a lifelong issue for her.

      Queen Jezebel worked with her husband Ahab to overturn traditional conservative values. King Ahab reigned in government and on the public stage for a period spanning 22 years. Hillary Clinton has been working with her husband Bill to overturn traditional conservative values for years. Bill Clinton also presided in government and on the public stage amazingly . . . for 22 years from 1979 to 2001.

      Finally, the reign of Ahab and Jezebel was marked by personal scandals. Specifically, the fall of Ahab was linked to the tribe of Levi. Similarly, the reign of Bill and Hillary Clinton was also marked by the Whitewater controversy and the Lewinsky scandal. The fall of Bill Clinton was linked to the Lewinsky – translated to ‘Levi’ in Hebrew – scandal."

      Now when it comes to the comparison of Jehu in the Bible and Donald Trump . . . both were "rough around the edges," hardly individuals who anyone would consider to have the temperment of a King or a President. Both Jehu and Trump were laymen, not of royal blood and in the case of Trump, having no political experience. Jehu was a commander in the army and Trump was a real estate mogul. God sent a prophet to Jehu to lay hands on him and prophecy he would be King when it looked like in the natural that that was an impossibility. In the summer of 2016, Christian leaders met in Trump tower. There these Christian leaders laid hands on Trump and several prophesied that Trump would be the next president. At that time Trump was way behind in the polls, getting slammed by the main stream media every single day. In the natural it seemed impossible that Trump could win the election. But as we saw, against all odds, Trump saw an absolute miracle occur. In the biggest political upset in history, Donald Trump became the 45th President of the United States.

      Just as Jehu destroyed the abominations promoted by Ahab and Jezebel, smashing all the idols of Baal where child sacrifice was done and coming against the sexual perversion that was done in worship of Baal, . . . Trump did more to curtail the sacrifice of babies through abortion than any President in history. Trump also has arrested more pedophiles and busted up more child sex traffic rings than any President in history. Bill and Hillary opened the door to increased abortion worldwide and increased sexual perversion (even to committing adultery while in the White House) . . . Trump is increasingly shutting that door.

THE MODERN DAY PROPHET
I want to give one more piece of evidence that Donald Trump indeed was chosen of God for a time such as this. Kim Clement, was a prophet whose prophecies over the course of years was stunning. Here are just two of them . . .

February 10, 2007
"There will be a praying president, not a religious one. For I will fool the people, says the Lord. I will fool the people. Yes, I will. God says, the one that is chosen shall go in and they shall say, He has hot blood. For the Spirit of God says, Yes, he might have hot blood, but he will bring the WALLS of protection on this country in a greater way (Note that Trump has been continually building the border wall.) and the economy of this country shall change rapidly (Note too that Trump took an economy in shambles under Obama and created the greatest economic boom in American history in a matter of a couple of years), says the Lord of Hosts. Listen to the Word of the Lord. God says, I will put at your helm for two terms a president that will pray, but he will not be a praying president when he starts."

      And again on February 22nd, 2014, seven years later and before Trump had even revealed he was going to run for president . . .

For I have found a man after my own heart. I have found a man after my own heart and he is amongst you, The highest court in the land, the Supreme Court, . . . two shall step down. For the embarrassment of one shall take place. For I wish to place in the highest court in the land righeousness (Note that Trump eventually put in two supreme court justices as this prophecy said.) and they shall attempt to put others in to endeavor, to reach their endeavors, but God said hear me tonight, hear me today. I have this whole thing planned out according to my will for it is now time for me to restore the fortunes of Zion. I could not quite see his face because that was not allowed . . . because there was a mist that covered all the people and he was amongst them. And the Spirit of God made me look at him and He said this man will throttle the enemies of Israel. (Note Trump destroyed Isis, took out the two leading terrorists threatening Israel and tore up the Iran nuclear deal that would have allowed an eventual nuclear attack.) This man will throttle the enemies of the west. (Note that the enemies of the west are the global cabal, the swamp. Trump vowed to drain the swamp.)

And there are highly embarassing monents that are about to occur for many, many politicians in this nation. There will be a shaking of the democrats in the upcoming election, but unsettling for the republicans. Why is God doing this? For God has said, I am dis-satisfied with what emerges from both parties. And then there is a nation He showed me, He took me . . . itching for a new kind of war with America. They will shout "Impeach, Impeach" they say, but nay This nation shall come very subtley. But he shall not come in the time of President Obama. They shall come when this new one arises, my David, that I have set aside for this nation, a man of prayer, a man of choice words , , , But God says, I have set him aside. They will shout impeach, impeach but this shall not happen. (Note that this reference to the media incessantly saying Impeach, Impeach was prophesied before Trump even revealed he was running for president.) And then God says highly embarassing moments when another Snowden arises (Could this be a reference to Julian Assange who leaked the damaging Wikileaks Clinton emails?) and people will become very afraid. They'll say we have no protection. Then God will say, Am I impressed with your weapons of war? Am I impressed with the strength of your men's legs Ha! I have said I will bring this nation to it's knees. The man that I have raised up . . . pray . . . for the enemy will do everything in his powor to put a witch in the White House. (Note that Hillary is a known witch, involved with blood sacrifices and seances when she was in the white house.) Did anybody hear what He just said? For Jezebel (It is interesting the bringing up of Jezebel. The book I just referenced, The Paradigm, said that Hillary had uncanny comparisons to the Jezebel in the Old Testament. But obviously this book had not even been written when this prophecy was given.) has chased away the prophets and even Elijah. And now I have said, Go back, for this shall be dismantled so that there will be no more corruption in the White House says the Spirti of God.

      I will let you come to your own conclusions about these prophecies by Kim Clement given far before Trump even announced he was running for President. To me this is just another miraculous sign that Trump, like Esther in the Bible, was selected by God for a time such as this. By the way, Kim Clement, died a month after he saw the fulfillment of these prophecies when Donald Trump was elected as the 45th president of the United States.

      So is Trump a Christian? I don't know, because I don't know his heart. Is he someone that God has called to be an instrument to stem the tide of secular humanism, sexual perversity, child sacrifice both through abortion and satanic rituals and a movement toward a global, socialistic government? I believe he is. There is no doubt in my mind that whether or not he is a Christian, God is using him as his David to give our nation one more chance. But God's mercy is dependant on our humbling ourselves before Him, turning from our sins and crying out in intercessory prayer to spare our nation. All those that are Christians need to pray for our President, which we are commanded to do in 1 Timothy 2 verses 1-3. And we need to stay informed by getting our news from the ORU News platform rather than the main stream media. And lastly we need to vote. If you embrace biblical values in November the choice could not be clearer.

    Daniel, well done for the efforts , facts, biblical quotes translating to reality, whether a thing is right or wrong is conditional & can accurately determine by God only & human beings never can join partners with God. Spiritually or obviously, there's a divine battle on going, & Whomever God chooses to carry out a divine mission it does matter if it's a Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Krishna or a Baha'i.

    Wow Daniel! This is a highly informative article which you have put together for everyone to read. Prayerfully many indeed will read it and even the most critical of President Trump will have to acknowledge (unless they choose to deny the undeniable info presented here of course) that the evidence is overwhelming that God has chosen him. Interesting also that you mentioned David (of course King David) since he was far from being what many would consider a true man of God. He had his share of sins which he committed, yet God referred to him as one who was a man after His own heart! Although you've left this completely open-ended and yeah, sometimes he can be very hot-headed, how many would want to be "walking in his shoes?" In the natural world, and spiritual as well of course, he is surrounded by enemies and never ending allegations. God Himself refers to righteous anger, does He not?? So just like Jesus the Christ asked His disciples, but who do you say that I am?

    Daniel, The answer to your proverbial question would not tip the scale. The important thing is this post will prick the thinking of many who need to know the truth. Too many are moved by their emotions swayed by conflicting reports seen and heard through the Media. Thanks for a most timely post.

    Daniel, thank you for opening my eyes to information that I have not known before. This is a great article in which you leave me to make up my own mind as to if the President is a Christian or not. Thank you for taking the time to write this article.
