Is Donald Trump’s heart for God’s Kingdom? – part 3 : personal faith

“I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; 21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: 23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.” (John 17:20-23 NKJV)

Of myself: born and baptised in Roman Catholicism but when an adult became anti-church; but blessed to be saved and born-again by and baptised in the Holy Spirit, I regard myself as being non-denomination and desire the manifestation of the above prayer by My Saviour Jesus the Messiah.

And guess what? I find Donald Trump, the President of the United States of America, is in the same boat with me – ie. non-denominational – as we shall soon see!

RECAP

So let’s quickly recap thus far on this posts’ specific topic. We’re examining the claim from British pastors’ perspective that, as reported superficially by biased media, there are grounds for doubting Donald Trump has “the values of Jesus or a heart for His Kingdom.”

However, my blog’s historical data reports:
  • Trump is honoured, supported and prayed for by black churches, one bishop of which attended his Inauguration.
  • Prayer played a major role in his Inauguration, which featured more religious leaders than any other inauguration in history.
  • Independent editor based in the White House reported, “I rejoice at the change because it has been very tough being in the White House press corps the last eight years…Fortunately, Trump, Pence…and the nominees are very pro-Christian, pro-Evangelical and pro-Israel. This is truly a new day for believers in Yeshua.”
  • Furthermore, “not since Ronald Reagan’s presidency have all Christians been so welcome in every area of the White House as they are under Trump & VP. Pence.”

An inserted re-blog from the ‘Never-Trump’ author Joel Rosenberg tells what changed his mind and how he told President Trump when ‘Veep’ Pence took him to meet him in the Oval Office:

“Sir, if you accomplish nothing else for the rest of your term, you will go down in history as the most pro-life and pro-Israel president in the history of the country. And I just want to say, on behalf of my wife and me, thank you.”  The President seemed moved. Then I noted the Bible commands believers to “pray for kings and all those in authority.”

“I want you to know, sir, that I have prayed for you and your family every day since you took the Oath of Office.”

“Thank you, Joel,” Trump replied. “That means a lot to me.” Continue reading

Is Donald Trump’s heart for God’s Kingdom? – part 2: 2017-2020

Further to Part 1’s closing quotation from William Koenig on Donald Trump’s inauguration in January 2017, readers may like to check this overview of his book on Obama’s dangerous legacy.

His location brought close familiarity with the work of several presidents and so William noticed the contrast between the last administrations is like that between darkness and light!

He emphasises that not since Ronald Reagan’s presidency have ALL Christians been so welcome in every area of the White House as they are under Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. As a newly refreshed believer the President has become more open to the Lord and, supported by Franklin Graham and other Christian leaders, is moving forward in his faith. SO please avoid jumping to conclusions and making inaccurate even presumptuous judgments.

We will look more closely at Donald Trump’s faith and its application in furthering Kingdom principles later.

First, let’s look at his overturning a couple of his predecessor’s policies that were detrimental to moving God’s Kingdom forward. Continue reading

POST-MBS-Evangelicals(Jerusalem, Israel) — On Wednesday, The Jerusalem Post published the first in-depth story on our Evangelical Delegation to Saudi Arabia, why we went, and what the Crown Prince told us behind closed doors. 

As I told editors Yaakov Katz and Seth Frantzman in the Post’s offices yesterday, the entire meeting in the Royal Palace was on the record, except for what MBS told us regarding his views of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Our team took detailed notes and I provided some of the excerpts of our conversation to the Post. Here’s the article.

Secretary Pompeo’s Iran speech: Tehran hated it. But most Arab & Israeli leaders loved it. So did I. Here’s why.

Joel keeps us up-to-date on Iran (Ezek 38; Gog/Magog) and I note its response: supreme leader demands his own terms on the nuclear accord and one of its Revolutionary Guards leaders threatens US Secretary of State!

Pompeo-HeritageIranSpeech(Washington, D.C.) — Iranian leaders hated it. Most European leaders hated it. So did most former advisors to President Obama and Vice President Biden, and most of Washington’s so-called “experts.” But this is hardly news.

What’s fascinating is that most Arab leaders loved it.

I’ve spoken with two very high-ranking Arab officials in recent days about the speech delivered by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo at The Heritage Foundation on Monday morning. Both made it clear to me how deeply grateful and appreciative their countries are to the Trump-Pence administration for finally taking a bold, decisive, uncompromising position against Iranian aggression. 

One Arab official told me privately: “It’s like the world is sane again.”

After watching Iran be feted and praised and rewarded and appeased by President Obama and his team over the past eight years, most Sunni Arab leaders are rejoicing that the U.S. is finally treating Iran as…

History in the making: Trump terminates US role in ‘nuclear deal’ with Iran

Thirty years ago my jaw dropped upon seeing an utterly amazing ‘coincidence’ between a book I was reading (The Invisible Hand) and a video of Iran’s elite troops rehearsing an attack upon, and liberation of, Jerusalem (see ‘Bio’ ). After many years watching the malign machinations of that regime, I’m pleased there’s now a non-Israeli world leader adamantly refusing to tolerate Iranian terrorism AND is already taking action – with Britain and France! – as well as knowing those ‘Twelvers’ hell-bent eschatological motives! [See Iranian Leader’s End-times Declaration & ‘Mahdi’ tag]. Here’s Joel Rosenberg’s on yesterday’s announcement:

(Jerusalem, Israel) — After a careful policy review by senior administration officials, and consultation with a wide range of U.S. allies, President Donald Trump today kept his promise by announcing the U.S. will terminate the nuclear deal that President Obama and Secretary John Kerry negotiated with Iran. The President also announced the U.S. will imposing […]
