Joe Biden, Donald Trump and Bible Prophecy
If you are an American, it is hard to not know about the Joe Biden’s stuff about his son and the impeachment discussion about Donald Trump, sitting U.S. President. Like many intercessors, I wanted to get the Lord’s heart on the subject. What is important that we discern what the Lord’s is saying and thinking in this late hour of history. What does this election mean for the prophetic calendar? A lot actually.
The election is between a man of many sins but marketing guru and a career of just as many sinful acts. The truth of the matter is that Jesus would not, could not and is not supporting either one of them. After all, Jesus is not a Republican or a Democrat. He is not a liberal or a libertarian. He is the Ancient of Days and the manifestation of holiness.
Joe Biden and Donald Trump are both unregenerate believers at best. When you apply the standards of the New Testament to either of them, they both come up seriously lacking. One of them has made very serious error of judgement about the everything in the Sermon on the Mount. The other one has lived a life of adultery, greed and only claimed faith when it become political wisdom. (Sorry, I am buying Paula White’s story at all!) I do not believe either one of them has had a biblical conversion.
The plan of the Holy One of Israel— let it approach, let it come into view, so we may know it.” Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. (Isaiah 5:19-20)
Where we stand in prophecy
Matthew 24:24 talks about false messiahs and false prophets that come and deceive the elect. The deception that is moving across the nation right now in political passion is deceiving even the most elect of God. People are turning a blind eye and in some cases, worshipping the President. This grieves the Holy Spirit. Many misunderstand Romans 13 to justify this. I do not believe any President since Truman (even he has connections to the Kansas City mob) has been placed in office by God. An evil and wicked nations of sinners dully electing their favorite personality is not God’s stamp of approval. Don’t forget Saul.
Joe Biden is no better. Like Trump, he gives lip service to the people about faith. He does not represent us. He is part of a evil and wicked system that is about empowering global syndicate. While Trump might not be the likes of Biden when it comes to wickedness and elitism; I believe both of them are a sign of the culture: we love our sin and wicked behavior.
We are at a time in prophetic history that no matter where we turn, we can not find a righteous man to lead the nation. In a little over a year, we will head to the polls to elect someone to the highest office of the land and both of them have godless lifestyles.
Friend or Family?
Donald Trump has been a friend to Christians politically. If this is good or bad, it depends of your understanding of Christian history. However, there is little debate if Trump has been friendly to us in the land. Fundamental rights that were under fire like the first amendment are not protected again. Policy wise, having Donald Trump in the Presidency has had a good outcome.
However, the question remains: Is Donald Trump a believer? If we use the biblical standard to reach our position; the simple answer is no. A political salvation is just that: political. The depth of any “conversion” of the President is minimal at best. I can not, with any type of conviction, state that Donald J. Trump is a believer. No matter who this offends, I must stand on biblical truth and what I believe is spiritual truth as well.
With that said, he is, like Biden to a much lesser degree, a friend to the saints. However, there are no friends in Heaven; not family. God started with family and it ends with family. There is no VIP seating at the marriage supper of the Lamb for people who are “like family.”
About the new city, we know that this is a reality,
Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life. (Rev. 21:27)
I believe both Donald Trump and Joe Biden have done, are doing and plan to do very shameful and deceitful acts. Therefore, they are not part of the family of God. They will not enter into the New Heavens unless they have a true and biblical conversion.
Be encouraged by the deception
We are told that there will be a great harvest of souls that happen side by side the great deception that is coming. We can know that revival is imminent when we look at the wickedness in the land. The increase of lawlessness in the land is a promise to the Church that the end time revival is drawing close than ever before. We should find comfort in this as intercessors.
…all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness. (2 Thess 2:10-12)
The crisis in America will only increase but also will the anointing and the power of God in the blood bought Pentecostal church. The more we see the culture and its’ sinful display; the more encouraged that we could be very close to see the emergent of the Forerunner in the spirit of John the Baptist.
The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life. (Revelation 22:17)
