A couple of weeks ago my author friend Neil, whose evening courses 10 years ago at Winchester Vineyard on the Bible and End-times Prophecies are a fond memory, said in passing that he’s been mulling over the Trump situation. Later, during his prayer back-up in aid of our personal stand against satan’s strategy, he thinks the Trump story is both a parable and a model for something much bigger and last weekend he sent his thoughts, as follows:
THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY – PARABLE, ALLEGORY or TEST OF FAITH?
Is Donald Trump’s Presidency a parable? It certainly has parallels (a modern-day Cyrus?) and I suspect that the full significance of what has been, and is, happening will soon be revealed. In the meantime, do we have eyes to see, and the wits to interpret, the possible Biblical precedents?
THE STORY SO FAR
To escape from the slavery and tyranny of deep-state political skulduggery, President Trump attempted to lead the USA in a new direction, which involved “crossing the Red Sea” and spending time in the wilderness. Unfortunately, the waters did not close over the heads of the Machiavellian “insiders”, who had been wrong-footed by his election (RB. 2016), and gave chase. From the start, the evil Washington cabal worked flat out to undermine the President’s endeavours to move on and “cross the Jordan” into the Promised Land.
The challenge for God’s appointed leader, Trump the outrageous, was how to turn the established “closed-shop” US political system on its head and re-establish a true democracy. The entrenched and extremely powerful elite used their iron grip on broadcasting, and main stream media platforms, to distort and manipulate information in order to ridicule and persecute Donald Trump. There was a near total shutdown on any positive achievements during his administration, and an amplification of anything negative. The propaganda, whipping-up of hatred and abuse against an appointed leader, was unprecedented, and reminiscent of the tactics used in takeovers in third-world dictatorships.
It seems very likely that they realised that even the massive propaganda campaign was not enough, so the conspirators resorted to vote rigging to achieve their aim.
TWO OTHER STORIES
- There was a man who took on an entrenched evil realm, with the jawbone of an ass as his only weapon. He won the battle! However, his enemies conspired against him: he was betrayed and taken captive. In the end, when his enemies were convinced that he was powerless, he was empowered by God to bring their “temple to a false god” down on their heads…!
- When God’s chosen people came up against an impregnable city, God provided what must have seemed like a crazy battleplan. The leader ignored the scepticism of his followers, and the ridicule of his enemies, and followed God’s plan to the letter. The impenetrable walls collapsed and the city was routed…!
Currently, the USA appears to be in the doldrums. It may not be Trump who leads that great Nation into a new season but surely, next time round, the recent revelations and very strong indications of corrupt voting practices will focus the minds of the electorate. It is still possible that there will be one or more bombshell vote-rigging exposés, which prove to be beyond the conspirators’ ability to smother – God’s will be done. One way or another, things are going to change.
God’s ways are not our ways and we should never seek to second-guess what His plan is and how it will be fulfilled. What we can be certain of is that God will not be mocked and His promises always hold true, for those who believe. God expects us to have an absolute confidence in Him and His government of the world.
I am convinced that something unprecedented is about to happen – This is a test of faith!
