During the period November 3rd 2020, the day when the US Presidential election took place, and January 20th 2021, when President Biden was inaugurated, I posted ten Trumpwatch installments, yet in the nearly two months following, I posted none. People may wonder why and may think they have the answer. I write to remedy this deficiency. There may be a number of reasons and even I cannot apportion the correct weighting concerning what is significant, but I want to share my thought process on reasons, how I see the situation right now and what could and should happen in the future. With the release of my second edition of “Prophets of the Bible”, I want to consider the role of the prophetic.

I (Richard) trust readers recall previous re-blog’s of my friend and fellow watchman John Barber’s postings and I wish to express my admiration for the Godly, patient manner in which he replies to those not yet moving in the Holy Spirit and expands upon his thesis on Farce-book. He is simply stating the situation from a viewpoint of the prophets and in which major developments are bubbling up relatively soon. John concludes (1st paragraph’s emphasis mine):
“But having done a good deal of testing and weighing, I have come to a view that many of these “Trump second term political prophets” are the real deal and God is ripe ready to judge evil doers, in the here and now and not just the hereafter, and wants to bring about revival (and in unlikely places this is already happening – but it also needs to start in the Church). But what I think is neither here nor there; I am merely a Watchman on the Wall (whose job in Bible times was to warn).
“We need to be reconciled with God if we do not believe and, if we do, we need to learn from the lesson taught by the last Old Testament prophet: “And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness” Malachi 3:3. While it may be a step too far for some to pray for the return of Trump, we can still pray, along with another prophet: “O Lord, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O Lord, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy” Habakkuk 3:2.”
