A nation is first a spiritual entity.
Making America Great Again. Its no longer news that Mr. Donald J Trump has secured a historic win as the 45th President-elect of the United States of America. It is also not a surprise that the decisive victory was unexpected and shocking to many across the world. Besides the fact that the election was keenly contested, it is worthy of note that both candidates; former secretary of the state Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump representing Democratic and Republican parties respectively were said to be by far the most unpopular presidential candidates in the history of the United States with below average acceptance polls to prove this assertion. I alluded to this in part in my initial piece where I spoke categorically about my utter dislike for the brash personality of Mr. Trump and the ignoble platform on which Ms. Clinton ran on. My views as an outsider has not changed even now. I maintain that what makes America great as a nation has to do with her deeply spiritual roots. Its not necessarily the size of her army that makes America great. It is righteousness that exalts a nation. Nevertheless, I wish to assert unequivocally that God’s ways are not the ways of man. My dislike for the person of Donald Trump remains quite strong but the purpose of this post is to address a singular question: Is there a possibility that I and others are wrong about the man Donald? Could this seeming brash fellow infact be Jehovah’s choice for His people?
Standing with God. I am a believer that a nation is first a spiritual entity and that goes to say that even though it may not be a politically correct thing to say, God is in fact the Governor among the nations. The rulers of this world (the systems) under the manipulation of the evil one have sought to secularize the whole of humanity with an attempt to erase the knowledge and legitimacy of God but that will never happen. I dare opine that many of the prevailing ideas today that pretend to promote the inordinate freedoms of certain minorities are indeed furnished to contest the idea of and legitimacy of God. This may sound like a conspiracy theory but it is not. I am willing to be guilty of the laws of man but I have chosen to articulate in this piece my unedited conviction and in doing so I wish not to be charged with contempt by the very King of the Universe. I would rather stand with God than side with men.
Cyrus the Anointed. In the 45th chapter of the Book of Isaiah the Prophet, there is a very disturbing account about a king named Cyrus who was by every account not part of the Jewish establishment (God’s chosen people). The opening verse reads “This is what the Lord says to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I take hold of to subdue nations before him and to strip kings of their armor, to open doors before him so that gates will not be shut…“. This account established an unusual dimension about the judgement of the King of Heaven – He does anoint unbelievers. Now, I must make clear that I am not a prophet but I am fascinated by the emergence of Donald J Trump as the 45th President-elect of the USA and the account of Cyrus the great in the 45th chapter of the book of Isaiah is for me a very interesting pointer and reflector. Perhaps the King of Heaven has a radically different game plan for America. Maybe Donald J Trump whose name “Donald” in Gaelic (Domhnall) means “ruler of the world” and “Trump” which means “a playing card of the suit chosen to rank above the others, which can win a trick where a card of a different suit has been led” is God’s secret weapon for the great harvest which is now ripe. One thing is certain, the effervescent and monumental emergence of Donald Trump into the world stage against all odds is a wrecking ball to status-quo. It is the dawn of a new era for American politics and I join every well meaning person on the planet to wish Americans the best that God gives. If Donald Trump be God’s anointed, then let no one touch God’s anointed.
