Judgment One—Evil Leaders

Staring into the proverbial bowl of the abominations of this nation is not a pretty picture. It exudes a stench that overwhelms any child of God. Scripture is very clear concerning the consequences of or national iniquity.

One of those consequences is portrayed many times over in the history of Israel and Judah—God’s chosen people. The story is old and predictable by now. Here is the underlying plot line: evil people that do not want to be led by God are given an evil leader by God Himself. This leader brings their nation into increasing abomination. The people grow worse, wanting an even more debauched leader to match their ever-increasing lust for idolatry and wickedness.

This is not a act, not a movie, not a TV show. This is real life here and now in America. The man that just left the White House is a perfect example of this reality. So is his Heir Apparent: Jezebel. This is not the context to examine all of their abominations. Suffice it to say that Mr. O’s “decrees” pave the way for the complete control and destruction of this country. He has done his job well over the past eight years—very well. He is God’s judgment against a wicked nation. If Jezebel were to follow, the treacherous acts would no doubt continue—even increase—and the peace and safety of those that love the Truth will be smothered.

Thankfully, many saints have prayed and fasted and we have been given a two-minute warning by the Lord. This is a short timeout in the battle where both sides can review their final all-important strategy to win the game. For us saints, this two-minute warning is an opportunity to huddle with our Great Coach and be inspired to fight as His representatives on this earth, enabling tactics to keep the Church vibrant and protected so that it can win as many souls to the Kingdom off God as possible in this final and ultimate melee between good and evil.

Evil Political Leaders in Israel 

From Scripture we see that the history of Israel and Judah were littered with examples of bad Kings (the very notion of a king was a mistake to begin with, but the people demanded it). Between 938 and 852 B.C., Judah had a few good kings: Jehoshaphat and Asa (who eventually went bad). The rest were certifiable scoundrels. Israel? Well, Israel had one bad leader after another. This profane progression apexed with none other than Ahab and Jezebel. We have been given the same with Bill and Hill’, not to mention their comrades Bush and Obama (sorry to burst some conservative bubbles, but much of the evil foundation which foredooms us in this country was laid under the watch of President Bush).

Ahab married a Sidonian woman name Jezebel. Together they led their country into idolatry. Famine was one of the consequences of their failed leadership. The “church” of that day going underground and the assassination of the prophets were additional serious consequences of their evil reign.

1Ki 18:13 Has it not been told my lord what I did when Jezebel killed the prophets of the Lord, how I hid a hundred men of the Lord’s prophets by fifties in a cave and fed them with bread and water? 

Just as is the case today, Satan wanted his power couple on the throne. If they were successful, evil will reign throughout the land. But God always has His man: Elijah, in this case. The King accused Elijah of bringing trouble on the nation in the form of a severe 3-1/2 year drought (notice the similar timeframe to Jesus’ 3-1/2 year ministry and the 3-1/2 year tribulation period in Revelation and Daniel). Like today, our politicians, led by king Obama and queen Hillary, have it all wrong. They even blame the people of God for the evil things that they themselves conceive, plan, and execute.

1Ki 18:18 And he answered, “I have not troubled Israel, but you have, and your father’s house, because you have abandoned the commandments of the Lord and followed the Baals. 

Count Allah among the Baals—the choice of the street organizer that last occupied the White House. Satan has many demons masquerading as gods. They have been increasing exponentially as we slide into the birth pangs leading up to tribulation on this earth and the ultimate Revelation of Jesus Christ.

Like Elijah, the Lord always has His man. Even at 450 to 1, it was no contest at all. In the end, Ahab and Jezebel were both killed, and the dogs licked up their blood. Although the original Jezebel is dead, the spirit behind her lives on in the world, and in the church.

Rev 2:20–21 But I have this against you, that you tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess and is teaching and seducing my servants to practice sexual immorality and to eat food sacrificed to idols. I gave her time to repent, but she refuses to repent of her sexual immorality. 

Tolerance, the mantra of modern civilization, is not well thought of by our Lord. The tolerance of evil is evil itself.

Tolerance of evil within our governmental leaders is bad enough, but tolerance of evil within the Church is tantamount to a betrayal of the new nature that our Lord has given us as His saints. Saints means holy: the very same word (hagios) used in the name of the Holy Spirit.

We as the people of the Church continue to tolerate evil within our leadership and within our ranks. I see no evidence in Scripture or in history that this present tolerance of evil will end well. The lack of recognition, lack of exposure, and lack of action against evil leadership will yield the putrid fruit of Satan: stealing, killing, and destroying.

For many decades our country has been caught in the same cycle of spiritual insanity that plagued Israel, and many other nations of the world (in the last century alone, it is estimated that 200,000,000 people were murdered by their own governments). As with Israel and Judah, the influence of evil leaders does exactly that. It leads to evil. It produces evil. It destroys all that it can and everyone that it can and then destroys itself.

Evil Spiritual Leaders in the Church 

Let’s leave the Twilight Zone of our ludicrous politicians, and move much closer to home. Jesus didn’t speak much about Caesar and Pilate, but he did talk about the leaders of the “Church” of His day. In fact, He tore them apart: up one traditional side and down the hypocritical other.

Our Lord and Savior’s first comment to his men about the times we are presently experiencing was to “not be deceived” (Mat 24:4). He was not talking about the obvious—CNN, FOX, CSPAN—He was talking about those that say openly that He is the Christ: even our “pastors.”

This is not stated to disparage those who are serving the Lord by taking on the extremely difficult role of shepherding other imperfect people amidst their own imperfections. It is meant to point out those that Jesus and the Apostles spoke against and warned us about. These people are to be exposed and avoided. These same people unfortunately gain massive exposure in our culture here in the U.S. These people may look like sheep, but they are wolves. Look carefully with your spiritual eyes and discover within their polished white smiles the razor-sharp fangs that are ready to tear apart and devour the flock of our Lord. These people are akin to modern-day Pharisees.

Just as the Pharisees and the Sadducees had reduced the relationship with our God and Father to a bunch of rules that even they did not keep, so today we experience the same idea with a different “twist.” Many Church leaders and members twist the very Words of God to suit their own needs and greeds. This is clearly defined as idolatry. This is what ticks off the Father the most.

We have seen a significant amount of high-profile church leaders fall into behavior that disgraces the people of God. From a human point of view, it is easy to gain the attitude that this is one more loss for our side. Thankfully, God is not troubled by this. While He does care for the souls of the wolves, He is much more concerned for those that they are able to influence. Isaiah 35:8–9 remind us that the Lord’s thoughts are far beyond our own. He has everything under control. Let us endeavor to ensure that He has US under His control for His glory.

Ezek. 34:1–10 The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel; prophesy, and say to them, even to the shepherds, Thus says the Lord God: Ah, shepherds of Israel who have been feeding yourselves! Should not shepherds feed the sheep? You eat the fat, you clothe yourselves with the wool, you slaughter the fat ones, but you do not feed the sheep. The weak you have not strengthened, the sick you have not healed, the injured you have not bound up, the strayed you have not brought back, the lost you have not sought, and with force and harshness you have ruled them. So they were scattered, because there was no shepherd, and they became food for all the wild beasts. My sheep were scattered; they wandered over all the mountains and on every high hill. My sheep were scattered over all the face of the earth, with none to search or seek for them. 

“Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord: As I live, declares the Lord God, surely because my sheep have become a prey, and my sheep have become food for all the wild beasts, since there was no shepherd, and because my shepherds have not searched for my sheep, but the shepherds have fed themselves, and have not fed my sheep, therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord: Thus says the Lord God, Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I will require my sheep at their hand and put a stop to their feeding the sheep. No longer shall the shepherds feed themselves. I will rescue my sheep from their mouths, that they may not be food for them. 

There really is nothing new under the sun. The same problem exists today. We have shepherds that use their position, influence, and the very Words of God to build their own little kingdom. This little kingdom is built on sand, and when the rains, floods, and winds come, there will be a mighty crashing sound. And guess what’s coming…

In Jeremiah 23, we wee the same scenario. The “trickle-down” effect of these leaders wrought corruption within the prophets, the priests, and the people. The Lord’s ultimate answer to this problem is Jesus Himself. Until all is fulfilled, we must endure those that corrupt, but we must not tolerate their evil influence (Rev 2:20). The wheat and the tares will continue to grow together. Our task ahead is to nurture the people of God to full maturity until Jesus appears again. To do this, all sheep must be protected from the spiritual lacerations of the wolves.

Mic. 3:11 The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the Lord, and say, Is not the Lord among us? none evil can come upon us.

Mic. 3:12 Therefore shall Zion for your sake be plowed as a field, and Jerusalem shall become heaps, and the mountain of the house as the high places of the forest.

I hope I am wrong, but when I read this passage I see US. I see the United Snakes of America. Even though we see evil all around, we still expect the Lord to continue to bless us. We expect that there is a man who, merely by being elected, is able to negate all of the abominations of this land and nullify the Lord’s judgments.

It is my estimation that have long been running on the fumes of past blessings and protection that this nation has been afforded. We are out of gas; we are running out of time. How much time I do not know, but I would rather get ready now than find myself later lamenting, “If only I had listened and prepared.” We cannot afford to be deceived concerning the Lord’s view of our nation and our churches. This leads to the lukewarmness that is so distasteful to our Savior (Rev 3:16).

In addition to avoiding the ubiquitous deception of these present times, we must simultaneously be responsible to do what Jesus instructed us to do (Matthew 25) following His horrific description of the final days of humanity on this earth (Matthew 24). He told us to avoid foolishness and deception and use all that we have and all that we are to be prepared for His arrival. Using the talents and resources that we have been given, we are to devote ourselves to storing up and disseminating the “oil” of the Lord to those in need. This involves every area of our life: first spiritual, then intellectual, and finally physical.

As Jesus plainly told us, it will be necessary for us, His disciples, to endure much persecution. Let us not forget that the rewards for our obedience to the Lord are incredible and they are eternal. He will protect us through the whatever storms may come. Even if tribulation produces death—our own personal rapture—we will be with our Father in Heaven.

Evil Leaders as Seen by the Prophets 

The prophets recorded in scripture had a great deal to say about the leaders of nations, especially Israel and Judah. Contemporary prophets are no different. The Church age was birthed in the atmosphere of this supernatural information download concerning the impending “Day of the Lord.” This vital information from our Good Father to His saints is increasing exponentially, just as predicted by Joel and spoken of by Peter to the new and forming Church.

Acts 2:14   But Peter, standing with the eleven, lifted up his voice and addressed them: “Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and give ear to my words. 15 For these people are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day. 16 But this is what was uttered through the prophet Joel:

17    “‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares,

that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh,

and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,

and your young men shall see visions,

and your old men shall dream dreams;

18 even on my male servants and female servants

in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy.

19 And I will show wonders in the heavens above

and signs on the earth below,

blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke;

20 the sun shall be turned to darkness

and the moon to blood,

before the day of the Lord comes, the great and magnificent day.

21 And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.’

The Lord does nothing without first telling His servants the prophets. This is exactly what God did to begin the Church. This is the very first sermon to the Church recorded in scripture. This adds tremendous importance to the subject.

Here in the West, many have decided that we don’t need the prophets or the messages that they bring. Their modern apostate doctrine even forbids that the Lord should talk to us any more. How can this be? Jesus has the best plan:

John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 

John 10:16 And I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd. 

For Jews and Gentiles—now together as one—it is incumbent upon us to learn to HEAR the voice of the Lord and DO what he says. The rock-solid foundation of this endeavor is scripture. All that we hear outside of Scripture MUST align with the Word of God. It must match the Lord’s character. It must be filled with His perfect love and His perfect justice. It is not just “positive & encouraging,” it is full spectrum. It is ALL of the Word of God.

Prophetic words from our Lord must also come from those that have proven themselves as servants of God (there are rare exceptions to this, such as a pagan king and even a donkey). These servants are characterized for us by the Lord Jesus Himself, and they will act like Him. But they will not be perfect. The only perfect prophet was Yeshua HaMashiach, Jesus Christ himself.

What they say must come to pass. Prophecy is most often conditional, so this turns out to be a difficult thing to discern ahead of its fulfillment or lack thereof. So much of prophecy within scripture is an IF/THEN proposition, as it is today. IF my people will do this, THENIF this nation continues to do this, THENIF this person continues on without repentance, THENIF my people will pray, THEN I will withhold the consequences.

Many times this simply comes to us as a warning from the Lord with the threat of justified and necessary consequences. This scenario has played out within every nation that has ever existed, and has affected every person that has ever lived. God will not be mocked. He will warn His prophets of what is necessary to quench His wrath invoked by His perfect justice. The Lord’s simultaneous motive in this is to turn the hearts of those that are ignoring or rebelling against Him back to Him out of His perfect love for us.

Our response to this agape love is repentance leading to holiness. The word most used for individual Christians in the New Testament is hagios (appears 61x in the New Testament, 13x in Revelation alone), which simply means one who is holy, as in Holy Spirit. In Scripture, the Church is the saints and the saints are the Church. Extrapolated: the Church is holy and the holy are the Saints.

To make it even more difficult, many prophecies are not fulfilled for hundreds, even thousands of years! Much of what we are seeing manifest today before our very eyes was written 1,900 to 2,700 years ago. It is still completely true and it WILL come to pass, even after so much time. We must give heed to what the Lord has told us about the times in which we are living.

Luke 12:45 But if that servant says to himself, ‘My master is delayed in coming,’ and begins to beat the male and female servants, and to eat and drink and get drunk, 46 the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know, and will cut him in pieces and put him with the unfaithful. 47 And that servant who knew his master’s will but did not get ready or act according to his will, will receive a severe beating. 

2Pet. 3:1 This is now the second letter that I am writing to you, beloved. In both of them I am stirring up your sincere mind by way of reminder, 2 that you should remember the predictions of the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior through your apostles, 3 knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. 4 They will say, “Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation” 

We must insure that we are not counted amongst the scoffers. If you are a scoffer, you very well may be a “redneck,” but you are not part of the Church.

Evil Leaders as Seen by Today’s Prophets 

As Jesus commanded us SEVEN TIMES in Mark 13, we must “be on guard, be awake, and stay awake” amidst the birth pains leading up to the “Day of the Lord.” To accomplish this, we must also ensure that we are not deceived by the world system and the false prophets that are aligned with it.

As part of my discernment discipline, I look for statements from servants of God that agree with each other—if you will, “the testimony of two of three witnesses.” When our Sovereign Lord is speaking to multiple individuals, which He always does, they will harmonize. They will be unified. They will not contradict. This is exemplified in the synoptic Gospels: Matthew, Mark, and Luke, and throughout the text of Scripture. Even though the Bible was written over thousands of years and came through many different people, cultures, and places, it has a harmony to it that is absolutely supernatural.

This supernatural evidence of multiple witnesses exists throughout the Bible. Scripture is replete with the records and actions of people woven throughout time as recorded by faithful, obedient people dictating the very Words of God. These words echo repeatedly throughout the text serving to verify it as the Word of God. I see the Word as a holographic shape in which every detail is connected in perfect order to form a spiritual picture of our Lord. Connected within this extra-dimensional shape by countless filaments are those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. This cannot be accurately described with the limited tools of communication and sight that we possess in our present fallen state. When we are with our Father, we will see clear!

Suffice it to say, God is still constantly speaking to us and He has a lot to say; he has a lot to say about our country, our leaders, out churches, and our future.

As I write this, the fasting and prayers of many saints have pushed back the advance of Jezebel in our country (Revelation 2:20). For this I am thankful and grateful to our good Father. We have been given a man who appears to be the Lord’s “doorstop” (quoting the word of TRUnews host Rick Wiles) to the swiftly advancing evil that is consuming this nation.

President Donald Trump is being compared to the Persian (Iranian) king Cyrus. This pagan king was used by God to perform His purposes in the History of Israel. Cyrus was prophesied long before he was even born. Others say he is like Samson, who was a man that was used by the Lord to accomplish His will despite his many tragic faults. There are even those who would use “the last trump” found in the KJV translation of 1Corinthians 15:52 to bolster Donald’s choice as the new President by our Lord’s sovereign work. This is quaint, but cannot be discounted. Our Great God has much more command of our language than any of us could ever hope for.

The Lord fulfilled the prophecies through His servant Jeremiah through the man Cyrus. The Israelites were now out of the grasp of Babylon and under the Persian Empire. The Temple was to be rebuilt because of this man. The same may hold true for President Trump. Time will tell.

One modern-day prophecy by a fireman named Mark Taylor has received a lot of coverage over the months preceding the Clinton/Trump election. It is reported that this prophecy came to him in April of 2011 (I am not aware of any documentation to verify this timing). He correctly predicts that Trump is the winner (50/50 chance on that) but says other things that do not appear authentic according to the measure of Scripture.

Here is the complete prophecy:

Commander in Chief 

By Mark Taylor | April 18, 2016

The Spirit of God says, I have chosen this man, Donald Trump, for such a time as this. For as Benjamin Netanyahu is to Israel, so shall this man be to the United States of America! For I will use this man to bring honor, respect and restoration to America. America will be respected once again as the most powerful and prosperous nation on earth, (other than Israel). The dollar will be the strongest it has ever been in the history of the United States, and will once again be the currency by which all others are judged. 

The Spirit of God says, the enemy will quake and shake and fear this man I have anointed. They will even quake and shake when he announces he is running for president, it will be like the shot heard across the world. The enemy will say what shall we do now? This man knows all our tricks and schemes. We have been robbing America for decades, what shall we do to stop this? The Spirit says HA! No one shall stop this that l have started! For the enemy has stolen from America for decades and it stops now! For I will use this man to reap the harvest that the United States has sown for and plunder from the enemy what he has stolen and return it 7 fold back to the United States. The enemy will say Israel, Israel, what about Israel? For Israel will be protected by America once again. The spirit says yes! America will once again stand hand and hand with Israel, and the two shall be as one. For the ties between Israel and America will be stronger than ever, and Israel will flourish like never before. 

The Spirit of God says, I will protect America and Israel, for this next president will be a man of his word, when he speaks the world will listen and know that there is something greater in him than all the others before him. This man’s word is his bond and the world and America will know this and the enemy will fear this, for this man will be fearless. The Spirit says, when the financial harvest begins so shall it parallel in the spiritual for America. 

The Spirit of God says, in this next election they will spend billions to keep this president in; it will be like flushing their money down the toilet. Let them waist their money, for it comes from and it is being used by evil forces at work, but they will not succeed, for this next election will be a clean sweep for the man I have chosen. They will say things about this man (the enemy), but it will not affect him, and they shall say it rolls off of him like the duck, for as the feathers of a duck protect it, so shall my feathers protect this next president. Even mainstream news media will be captivated by this man and the abilities that I have gifted him with, and they will even begin to agree with him says the Spirit of God. 

For the full interview listen to the Monday, April 18th 2016 edition of TRUNEWS.
On the surface this sounds great! It sounds like America is back on top. It sounds like happy days are here again. It screams comfort for our flesh. But it does not sound like the Bible.

The first five words—repeated four times—were immediately uncomfortable to me. The Phrase “the Spirit of God says” is not in the Bible. We do see “the Spirit says” in each of the seven letters in Revelation which are the words of Jesus. There are many examples in scripture of the Spirit speaking through people. I do admit that this could be of infinitesimal importance, but it was a red flag to me nonetheless.

Secondly, there is nothing but blessing after blessing in these words. My first response to this was “for what?” America has been in a steady slide toward immorality for many decades. America has not turned from this path of debauchery. America is not repentant. For the most part, God’s people have not humbled themselves, have not prayed, have not sought the Lord’s face, and have not turned from evil.

2Chr. 7:14 if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

There is a small group of Christians that have done this. I do hope that the reader of this is amongst those few. I also hope that I can be faithful and disciplined enough to make this attitude of repentance the core of my being. I fall so short so many times. Lord, help me.

Many have fasted and prayed during the three weeks preceding our latest election. I believe the Lord heard those prayers and that His grace is temporarily holding back the forces of evil, as well as His justice in the form of wrath. It is hard to deny this awesome miracle of God that has kept Jezebel out of power in our country. Yet the underlying spiritual problem in this country boils just below the surface of our recent election. Like molten lava, it threatens to explode, plunging us into a time of deep darkness. This is what we see in Scripture concerning the times that we live in, and the contemporary prophets continue to echo.

This nation continues toward increasing division and polarization. This is the same thing that happened to God’s people aback in the days of Zechariah.

Zech. 11:4 Thus said the Lord my God: “Become shepherd of the flock doomed to slaughter. 5 Those who buy them slaughter them and go unpunished, and those who sell them say, ‘Blessed be the Lord, I have become rich,’ and their own shepherds have no pity on them. 6 For I will no longer have pity on the inhabitants of this land, declares the Lord. Behold, I will cause each of them to fall into the hand of his neighbor, and each into the hand of his king, and they shall crush the land, and I will deliver none from their hand.” 

Zech. 11:7 So I became the shepherd of the flock doomed to be slaughtered by the sheep traders. And I took two staffs, one I named Favor, the other I named Union. And I tended the sheep. 8 In one month I destroyed the three shepherds. But I became impatient with them, and they also detested me. 9 So I said, “I will not be your shepherd. What is to die, let it die. What is to be destroyed, let it be destroyed. And let those who are left devour the flesh of one another.” 10 And I took my staff Favor, and I broke it, annulling the covenant that I had made with all the peoples. 11 So it was annulled on that day, and the sheep traders, who were watching me, knew that it was the word of the Lord. 

Zech. 11:12 Then I said to them, “If it seems good to you, give me my wages; but if not, keep them.” And they weighed out as my wages thirty pieces of silver. 13 Then the Lord said to me, “Throw it to the potter”—the lordly price at which I was priced by them. So I took the thirty pieces of silver and threw them into the house of the Lord, to the potter. 14 Then I broke my second staff Union, annulling the brotherhood between Judah and Israel

Zech. 11:15 Then the Lord said to me, “Take once more the equipment of a foolish shepherd. 16 For behold, I am raising up in the land a shepherd who does not care for those being destroyed, or seek the young or heal the maimed or nourish the healthy, but devours the flesh of the fat ones, tearing off even their hoofs

Zech. 11:17 “Woe to my worthless shepherd

who deserts the flock! 

May the sword strike his arm and his right eye! 

Let his arm be wholly withered,
his right eye utterly
blinded!” 

Israel was torn apart for the same price that Jesus was betrayed. The Lord puts the blame on those responsible to lead by the Word of God. In our modern parlance this is our pastors. The FAVOR of the Lord in this UNION of states has been given a two-minute warning. The judgments of God are stayed only by true repentance. For those that turn to Him in obedience, there will be protection and provision. For those that are against Him, there is only the expectation of judgment through fire.

The following is a prophecy from Steven Hansen which seems to be a big picture view of our Father’s thoughts concerning the true condition of this nation.

Who is the One Whom Many of You Think I Have Chosen? 

AUGUST 2, 2016 12:44 PM BY STEPHEN HANSON Z3news

https://z3news.com/w/who-is-the-one-many-of-you-think-i-have-chosen/ 

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts,” (Isaiah 55:8-9). 

“Dear people of the Most High God,

You must get ready for the coming elections. For the wind will sweep over this nation [America]. Who is the one whom many of you think that I have chosen? 

Soon you will find out, because of the outcome. Many have speculated and a few have prophesied, but very few have heard correctly from My throne. 

For in the past, true men led a nation, and they had the strength and character to show it. But now in these last days a nation and a world has fallen into ruins. 

Some pray that I would lead you forward into a new glory. Some pray that I will choose someone like Saul who appeared to be strong and resilient. And yet, you know that his ending was that of ruin. 

There is not a young shepherd boy to lead you. There is not an Eisenhower or a Lincoln for this hour. Gone are the days of Kennedy. Gone are the days of your founding fathers

No, I will give you what you deserve. For you are a divided nation. You are a nation of hatred and violence. What leader could bring you back to an earlier time? 

Time moves forward and it waits for no man. You stand upon the brink of civil war. And yet, I still love you with an everlasting love. 

But a father does what is best for his children. After everything is done and the dust settles, a new year will dawn. And with it, the old will be done away with it. But rocky days are in store for you. 

Civil unrest will ensue, and false prophets will emerge.
The world’s stage is set for a showdown. The players will assemble, and the events leading up to the very last days will come.” 

[Author: Stephen Hanson
Stephen Hanson of In His Truth Ministries came to the Lord is a special way in 1975 and has been prophesying regularly since. In these end- time birthing pangs we are to be reminded that judgment must first begin with the household of God. Will we be prepared and ready?

This nation is truly divided, and chasm continues to widen between those that lean toward a christian world view and those that are deceived into believing that Leftism will solve all problems. As the spiritual sink holes in this nation continue to form at an ever-increasing rate, the true Church is busy filling them in with good soil: the prayers and fasting of the saints! It is Isaiah 60 in real time. It is both the best of times and the worst of times.

Another prophecy from the late summer of 2016 that rings true was posted by James Bailey of Z3news. The prophecy along with James’ comments follows:

Clare du Bois Sees Trump Victory and More Success Ahead 

AUGUST 3, 2016 4:17 AM BY JAMES BAILEY Z3news

Even as evil people are planning to unleash hell on America, one Christian blogger believes God has heard the prayers of His people and has pushed back the darkness, at least the most severe consequences of it. On July 23, Clare du Bois shared on her Heart Dwellers blog how evil schemes have been pushed back.

She is not claiming all our troubles are over, but she is claiming the most severe consequences of God’s judgment, which she refers to as “being nuked,” have been pushed back.

“The Lord is truly with us, Heartdwellers. And we have turned a very big corner, dear ones. The Judgment has been held back by sincere repentance and prayer. We’ve conditionally been given more time. 

And today we have turned a corner. The Lord has said that as long as prayer, fasting and repentance is on the schedule daily, we can continue moving forward without everything around us being nuked. 

This is conditional… if prayer and repentance continue, so do we continue – so do our children and grandchildren continue and still have another chance at repentance and coming to the Lord. So does the world continue. And change is coming to the world, change for the better. But if we slack off, things could go south overnight. So, press in, dear ones. Press in.” 

She clearly connects our prayer and repentance to our protection and prosperity, which is supported by 2 Chronicles 7:14.

As God was speaking to Clare about religious freedom in America, She identified Donald Trump would win the upcoming election and take office.

“It is different in your country… so far – although that will be changing. Not in Mr. Trump’s presidency, but despots that will come after him.” 

I was a little surprised when He said that, because He hasn’t spoken of him winning the Presidency. 

Jesus continued… “Yes, I intend to see him all the way into the White House. I intend to bring down wicked structure and wicked laws that have effectively put an end to this nation. I will answer these prayers; I need these prayers to proceed. I don’t care if it is just a (short) prayer such as “Oh, God, protect him and his family.” The simpler the better. I will answer it. And when the multitude cries out in prayer for him, shall I not answer with abundant protection? 

Yes, the Christian leaders of this country have planted themselves around his candidacy, his nomination and his election. No matter how hard the enemy tries to stop him, as long as prayers are being cried out for him, I will uphold and advance him. 

You will meet with scorn and contempt from people for your stance, but understand: they have scales on their eyes and are blinded to the reality of the Satanic government they have voted in.” 

Wow, Lord, those are pretty strong words about the government being Satanic.

“Well, they only describe the reality, the hidden reality of what these people believe and practice in secret. It is more terrible than you can imagine. It would make the worst sinner blush with shame. But a tree is known by its fruit, most of which has been written into hidden laws and is the groundwork for a dictatorship. If these laws were to come into practice, it would be too late for the voting public to change them. Everything has been done in secret, under the cover of a ‘better way,’ and the undiscerning are totally blind to the content of these laws. 

I intend to change that, Clare. I intend to put this man in office and pull down the rotten structure that has eroded the rights of all American people. But I will need a lot of prayer and sacrifice…fast offerings in order to accomplish this. And you cannot afford to fall into complacency for one minute, or the game is over. 

So, I am calling you, My People, to arm yourselves with patience and fight the good fight. I am on the side of what is right.” 

Please note God is speaking in terms of what He wants to do while clearly explaining it can only happen if His people pray, sacrifice, fast, arm ourselves with patience, and fight the good fight. What happens on the earth depends on us because God has given us a free will to choose and authority to take action in His name.

Jesus continued… “This has been lacking in your life and the lives of others. People forget or fail to understand that I do indeed respond to these prayers with mighty angels to affect change. Government is important to Me for the very reasons I began this message with you. Leaders are not just to safeguard the economies and physical safety of their citizens, but also the spiritual welfare of the people. When that is repressed, the nation begins to crumble and the civilization begins to deteriorate. So, if you want to live long in the land, you must keep the spiritual life healthy, the family life healthy, the conscience of the people healthy. When you pray, I do all these things. 

There is a still small voice that comes to legislators in private that warns them they are going in the wrong direction. I get their attention, but the voice of the ruling party is much louder. And unless they have great integrity, they snuff out their conscience and do what they are told. This is what you now have in your Congress and Senate. This is the result of carelessness and preoccupation with position and wealth

I aim to change that, so that men and women who have participated in writing certain laws will look back on their mistakes and correct them. This is America’s only hope. The governing bodies must cooperate with the president, and the people must pay attention to who they elect into those positions. 

Mr. Trump has quite a job before him. But I am with him and he will not fail, at least in My eyes. Others will disagree, but in the long run, they will see the wisdom in his moves. The greatest obstacle he will face, besides the threat of assassination, are the corrupt elected officials. But even there, I will give him an advantage. There are so-called ‘closet’ Christians who hate what’s been done to this country and they will begin to stand up and make their voice count.” 

——-

This sounds like Trump will lead the charge in turning the tide to overcome his greatest obstacle, corrupt elected officials, which sounds very believable because as President he would have great influence to wake up those closet Christians.

But Lord, what about all these cataclysms that we are expecting?

He replied… “I have stepped in and changed a few dates. I am Sovereign. You serve a God who is subject to no one, and what I choose to do will stand, while what man chooses to do shall be utterly frustrated. But as I said earlier, everything depends on the prayers of the people.” 

Forgive me, Lord, but certain people have said that none of these calamities would happen. Were they speaking Your voice or their own?

“Everything. Every thing. Every single thing has depended on prayer and repentance. Those of you, My Voices, who have spoken of doomsday and such things have been given utterance by the Holy Spirit to warn My people that their ways are bringing down judgment on them. 

When a nation repents, when a world repents, that is when Mercy is given. You have not prophesied falsely, you have been a voice crying in the wilderness… ‘Repent and prepare the way of the Lord’. It is this unanimous voice that has cried out and been heard by My Father. Repentance ALWAYS brings Mercy. Always.” 

Please note how God reconciled the prophetic warnings with postponing judgment by telling Clare, “You have not prophesied falsely, you have been a voice crying in the wilderness.” This is precisely the point I attempted to explain in my previous post, Presidential Politics Producing Prophetic Perplexities, prophetic words are not predictions. They are warnings of what could happen if we stay on the wrong path or encouragement for what could happen if we get on the right path. So many of God’s people want to stone the prophets because they don’t understand the nature of prophecy.

“There are a few who believed this would happen and foresaw the delay. There are many who didn’t want to hear anything negative, so they blocked out My messengers, pretending they were in error. That is not My way. Ignorance is never My way. Ignorance is never Bliss, it is disastrous

But enough have woken up and seen the writing on the wall that there is at least continuing prayers and repentance forestalling judgment. As long as these prayers and petitions and acts of repentance are being offered, the judgment will be delayed. 

Different nations will be judged with natural calamities, visited by extreme weather conditions and other natural events that will get their attention. 

The bottom line? Everything is in My hands, Clare. Everything. Nothing will be permitted that I have not allowed.” 

How sure is the delay of the judgment?

“It is based only on prayers, My Dear One. Only on prayers. As long as they are offered, things will continue to turn around. 

Jesus continued… “I am quite serious in everything I have said here. It is prayer and repentance that has stalled the judgment for now. 

There are still souls in this world that have the lion’s share of a cross to carry and more are joining their ranks everyday as it becomes obvious that prayer is working. What I have said is the simple truth; no need to cover for anyone or anything. 

Prayer and repentance have triumphed for now. Continue on. My precious Heartdwellers, lift your cross, carry it with dignity, move forward with plans and do not be dismayed by doom and gloom from other sources. I am telling you all… repentance – as long as it continues at this rate – has made the decisive difference. If that should change, you’ll know about it. 

Stand against wickedness. Support what is good. Do not waste time on this story and that story, rather get busy with your contribution so that ‘My Kingdom may come, My will may be done on this Earth, as it is in Heaven.’ 

Come to Me if this is just too much to handle and I will help you get your bearings, as well as arm you with new graces and even callings. Continue to pray for Mr. Trump and his family. Continue to cover them and cry out to Me for protection and mercy. 

Continue to pray for Russia, China, North Korea and other great countries. And please do not grow weary with the crosses I send you. Carry them, knowing that they are indeed making a tremendous difference. 

I will comfort you, Dear Ones. I will comfort you and give you a new life. Come to Me.” 

Conclusion: 

I am not a fan of Donald Trump, primarily because I don’t trust him. I have wondered if he is truly a rogue candidate posing a real threat to the elite or if maybe he works for them and is only playing the part like an actor. This prophetic word gives me hope that he might really be a threat to them, but I remain very skeptical because God has never revealed any of these things to me. In fact, I received a warning dream in 2014 showing Obama staying in office and eventually putting a woman in charge of the final phase of their plan to destroy our nation. Anything would be better than that.

Only God knows how many people are truly praying and repenting and how many He requires before He moves on our behalf. Unless He reveals it, we would have no way of knowing. If Clare du Bois heard correctly, this is very good news because the alternatives are very bleak. Her strong emphasis on prayer and repentance gives me hope because those are the scriptural requirements that must be met.

If judgment has been pushed back, it means the prophetic warnings have successfully achieved their purpose of sounding the alarm to wake up enough people and get them aligned with God. That would be great news because it means the prophetic ministry has succeeded in its’ mission. So instead of stoning the prophets and accusing them of being false prophets, we should be thanking God for the warnings and growing in our understanding of the scriptural nature of prophetic ministry.

Even if Trump wins the election and takes office, I still believe we are going to see some great shakings in the global economy because God continues to confirm these things to me and others, including a big drop in the stock market soon after reaching all-time highs and a big increase in oil prices soon after dropping back down to previous lows. I believe we could also see some dark days surrounding the election, even if the shadow government’s evil plans fail to achieve their goals. So we have lots of reasons to keep praying, but if this means Obama moves out of the White House and nuclear bombs will not be exploding in our cities, then we have more good reasons to thank God.

MY CONCLUSION 

The election of Donald Trump in nothing short of a miracle. The Leftist half of this country, with all of it’s evil machinations, should have easily won the presidency. This is what they were arrogantly expecting and proclaiming.

They have lost this battle, but they are satanically inspired and empowered to fight out of the hole they are in. They are injured, making them even more dangerous. Do not be deceived!

They are no match for the True Church that is doing what is is designed to do—give glory to God. They are certainly no match for the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. We have read ahead to the end of this story, and there can be only one Victor: our Great God and Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. We must use this time—the two minute warning—to fully invest in the game plan of our Coach. He has written it all down for us. He has empowered us to overcome anything that could come our way. He is for us; nothing can be against us.

All of the Saints within the Church must endeavor, with intensity and selfless abandon, to become who they were created to be, and to do the good works that follow their own calling and election. We must find and hone our gifts and talents to serve each other. This is the foundation of the Storehouse Strategy. We all have an important part is this final chapter of human history here on this earth. We have an eternity of rewards awaiting us in our new mansion in Heaven. For our devotion and love for our Creator, and our service to each other, we will finally hear those most magnificent words:

“Well done thou good and faithful servant!”
