Is Trump fulfilling the will of God?

Throughout the Bible, it is noted that God chose various leaders and rulers to fulfill His prophecies. God has chosen many imperfect men to be leaders including Moses, who had a speech impediment and killed an Egyptian. David committed adultery and murder. Saul, who changed his name to Paul, was a murderer of Christians until his conversion. Those three men alone wrote a significant part of the Bible.

Are there signs that God had His Hand involved in the selection of President Trump to fulfill prophecy in the Bible? Some have compared Trump to King Jehu in the Bible, calling him crazy. King Jehu was not part of the establishment and did things his own way. He exterminated the House of Ahab and the evil Queen Jezebel. King Jehu was a disrupter and destroyed the evildoers of Baal. Trump is also known as a disrupter, who is not part of the Washington establishment. He has strength to fight off endless attacks. While he is obviously less than perfect and only God knows his personal faith, it is interesting to see some facts related to Trump and some prophetic signs.

In Luke 21:25, Jesus stated, “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring.” Joel 2:30-31 states, “And I will show wonders in the heaven and in the earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.” Many have pointed to April 3, 33 AD as the day that Jesus was crucified, which science point to a partial eclipse of a Blood Moon where “darkness came over the whole land” (Mark 15:33). A Blood Moon is also noted in the Book of Acts and also Revelations as a sign for the end time prophesies. While there are eclipses, there will only be eight lunar tetrads, full blood moons, in this century with the next coming in 2032-2033.

God also uses numbers to signify His power, particularly 3, 7, 10, and 12.  The number 7 signifies God’s perfection and completeness. God uses the word “created” seven times in Genesis. The number 10 signifies God’s law and completeness as in the 10 Commandments. The phrase, “God said” is repeated 10 times throughout Genesis.

Are there significance in both the rare tetrad blood moon and these numbers related to Trump? You be the judge. Trump was born on June 14, 1946 which was exactly 700 days later when Israel was reborn as a nation on May 14, 1948. On Trump’s first day in office, he was 70 years, seven months, and seven days old. (777) He was also inaugurated in the Hebrew year 5777 and beat Hillary Clinton by 77 electoral votes (because seven electors defected.) Exactly seven months after Trump’s first full day in office, there was a total solar eclipse over the U.S continent, a path that was exclusively in the U.S. that has not happened since 1776, the year recognizing the U.S. Declaration of Independence. Trump’s birthday is June 14, 1946, which occurred also on a Blood Moon and the midpoint of his first term, Jan. 20, 2019, was also on a Blood Moon. Interestingly, Forbes Magazine ranked Trump the 777th riches person in the world.

How does Trump relate to Israel, the land of God?

President Trump was elected on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s 7th year, 7th month, and 7th day in office. (777)

After 70 years since the nation of Israel was reborn, President Trump recognizes Jerusalem as the nation’s capital, declaring an end to Jerusalem’s 70 year exile, which Jeremiah 25:12 states, “When the seventy years are completed, that I will punish the king of Babylon and that nation, the land of the Chaldeans, for their iniquities, says the Lord, and I will make it a perpetual desolation.”  Daniel 9:2 states, “In the first year of his reign I, Daniel, understood by the books the number of the years specified by the word of the Lord through Jeremiah the prophet, that He would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.” This signified the 70 years Israel was held captive by Babylon.

Jesus also spoke of the temple in Jerusalem would be destroyed, (Luke 19:44) which occurred in 70 AD by the Romans, the official fall of Jerusalem as the nation scattered until it was reborn in 1948, nearly 2,000 years later, another fulfilled prophesy, which Jeremiah 16:15 states, “For I will bring them back into their land which I gave to their fathers.”

On Trump’s 777th day since the 2016 election, Israel announced that they would dissolve Parliament and hold elections 7 months early.

Interestingly, July 4, 2020 (Independence Day) was 1,335 days since Trump was elected president, which points to Daniel 12:12, “Blessed is he who waits, and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days.”

These astronomical signs are beyond coincidences, which can explain the fight in America between good and evil.  Isaiah 5:20 states, “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!”  President Trump is attacked daily by lies, deception and evil; darkness coming around him to attack him in every way possible.

While some may think this is just all coincidences of a fairy tale, realize anyone reading the bible over the past 2,000 years would have been skeptical since the nation of Israel did not exist until it was reborn in 1948.  The agnostic before that time could have called the bible a lie since Israel was mentioned 2,319 times from Genesis through Revelation while nonexistent.

Today, Israel, while a small country, is the center of attention throughout the world.  God has often used the small to show His strength. Israel is recognized in the bible as God’s land.  God is the ruler of the kingdom of men and has used those imperfect men to fulfill ninety percent of the 1,817 prophesies already fulfilled in the bible.  We are living in a time when ten percent of the remaining prophesies are being fulfilled before our eyes.

We can believe the signs, the numbers, and the prophecies or believe everything is a mere coincidence; but “The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” – Psalm 14:1
