President Trump as Mordecai

13 04 2018
Mordecai Pieter_Pietersz._Lastman_-_The_Triumph_of_Mordechai

The Triumph of Mordecai by Pieter Lastman, 1624.

Several comparisons apply to this President, with Cyrus of Persia being the clearest. (See Isaiah 45) However, I can’t stop  meditating on the striking similarities between Trump and Mordecai the Jew, in the Book of Esther. Mordecai’s mortal enemy was Haman, the Agagite (more on Agag and the spirit of Amalek). Haman deviously plotted to kill Mordecai and all the Jews of the Persian Empire.

Haman even built a gallows 75 feet high to hang Mordecai. But in the end, the plot was reversed a hundred and eighty degrees through the intervention of Esther (thus the title of the book). The turnaround was so complete that Haman was hung on his own gallows and the King decreed that the Jews could rise up and defend themselves. The application to Israel today is unmistakable.

So let’s get to my point regarding President Trump. He is likewise the subject of a devious plot to destroy him. But I see a complete reversal about to unfold that will be nothing short of miraculous. The truth will come out that there was no Trump/Russia collusion, and the hidden plot will be revealed, exposing real Russia collusion. Also, it will lead to the destruction of the plotters.

Therefore, we must pray and intercede even more for righteousness, truth and justice to prevail. Mordecai’s word to Queen Esther applies to us. We called as prophetic intercessors for this very hour.

 “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Esther 4:13-14

Symbolism, Imagery, Allegory – Here is a summary:

At the end of the Book of Esther, the world gets turned upside down (or, right-side up): the bad guy who seemed to be on the verge of a horrible victory gets hanged, the good guy takes his place in the king’s court, and the party of people about to commit a massacre become massacred themselves. Everything runs in reverse, overturning all expectations.

As for the gallows itself, well, it’s really big (75 feet)—outlandishly and pointlessly so. It demonstrates the egotism and wicked madness of Haman to the world (even though building it was technically his wife’s idea). He constructs the gallows as a horrible, over-the-top way of pursuing an unjust personal vendetta—killing Mordecai—but it backfires and ends up being used to kill the person who built it. The irony—the ancient irony! https://www.shmoop.com/esther/gallows-symbol.html

We know we are near a conclusion of the Russian collusion story. The question is which way it will go. Look for major surprises opposite from what the anti-Trumpers are expecting. Of course, in the end only Yehovah God knows, so we pray for His mercy and His purpose to be accomplished, for us and for Israel. As long as our president continues to stand with Israel, our nation will be blessed.

As I finish this post, the limited strike on Syrian chemical assets has been announced. The fact that one facility was in Damascus reminds of the Isaiah 17 prophecy of its destruction. This was not it tonight, but we are in the prophetic timing where it could happen very soon. Pray and watch for God’s plan.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Trump and Pence Hung in Effigy

29 01 2018
Fake lynching

Palestinian concept of “dignity” – give us free money or else.

This was the reaction in Bethlehem Saturday in response to President Trump cutting funding to the Palestinian Authority. Such mob insanity reveals the bankruptcy of the failed “peace” process. It only progresses with concessions to their demands. It is about time we stopped the foolish policy of appeasement. It didn’t work for British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain with Hitler. It never works. Thank you President Trump for following Winston Churchill’s example. The true demonic spirit behind the terrorists is always exposed.

It appears to me that we are witnessing the “Haman Principle” from the Book of Esther.

So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then the king’s wrath subsided… Then King Ahasuerus said to Queen Esther and Mordecai the Jew, “Indeed, I have given Esther the house of Haman, and they have hanged him on the gallows because he tried to lay his hand on the Jews. Esther 7:10 & 8:7

We can also see this principle at work in the U.S. It appears that a major secret plot against President Trump is about to be exposed. My prayer is for the truth to stand against every lie of the devil.

But to the Son He says: 
“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.” Hebrews 1:8

Pray and give thanks for the rain in Israel and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

US Embassy: Recognition of Reality – X4

6 12 2017

Old city street 7-17

Praise God for President Trump keeping his promise to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the Jewish people. Here are my four prophetic observations that you won’t see in the secular news.

  1. It’s not about Israel, it’s about the United States. Although Israel is rejoicing with today’s Presidential declaration, the real effect is God blessing the US because we are blessing Israel according to Genesis 12:3. We are recognizing the reality on the ground that Jerusalem has been Israel’s modern capital for 70 years , and in the Bible  for over 3,000 years, since King David’s original declaration.
  2. It’s not about Trump, it’s about God. I honor our President for keeping his word from the campaign. Our three previous presidents broke their promise to move the Embassy. But the real credit belongs to God who moved on President Trumps heart, who is simply obeying and carrying out the will of the God of Israel. Derek Prince, one of my mentors, used to say: When you and the Holy Spirit arrive at the same place, at the same time; it makes you look good.” The same applies to Trump’s promise to “drain the swamp”. I believe God is draining the corrupt and immoral swamp of modern American culture way beyond politics in DC. It is God’s doing and the fact that Trump gives voice to God’s purpose actually does make Trump look good, but it is happening because it is God’s timing for restoration.
  3. It does not kill the “peace process” which was already dead. The Arabs and Muslims have been opposing peace for 100 years, blocking every attempt. The most recent major push was the 1993 Oslo accords which have been a joke. How is that working out for you? It only brought suicide bombings and riots with Israel losing land in every “land for peace,” deal, that never brought peace. After 24 years it is time to pronounce that process dead. It is futile to impose the two-state concept for many practical reasons, but the final word is God’s. He has given the land to Israel; and all the nations of the world and all the demons of hell will not cancel out Yehovah’s eternal plan.
  4. Yehovah is raining on the “Days of Rage”. All the usual suspects are lining up to oppose the move with threats and a call for three days of rage. I had to laugh when a Fox News report a few minutes ago suggested that it is going to be cold and  rainy the next three days in Israel, which may reduce the demonstrations. Ha! Pray for rain!
O Yehovah, my strength and my fortress, ​my refuge in the day of affliction, The Gentiles shall come to You from the ends of the earth and say, “Surely our fathers have inherited lies, worthlessness and unprofitable things.” Will a man make gods for himself, which are not gods? “Therefore behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know My hand and My might; And they shall know that My name is Yehovah. Jeremiah 16:19-21
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for rain!

Jerusalem Plot Thickens

2 05 2017

shofarAs Israel celebrated their Independence Day yesterday, Palestinians mourned the occasion as “the catastrophe.” Even worse, UNESCO voted to deny Israel’s claims to Jerusalem on the same day (not a coincidence). Plus, the PA President, Mahmoud Abbas, is meeting with President Trump in Washington tomorrow, further thickening the plot.

On Independence Day, UNESCO okays resolution denying Israeli claims to Jerusalem

Make no mistake, the goal of Islam remains the complete destruction of all Israel. The “moderates” are willing to proceed incrementally, while the rest demand the entire land of Israel immediately. Each step is critical to the eventual outcome.

We must pray courage for President Trump and PM Netanyahu to resist the enormous pressure from the Palestinians and the nations arrayed against Israel. The ultimate victory of Israel is in Yehovah God’s hands.

Trump’s trajectory seems to be to recognize all of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, which is to simply acknowledge the truth first established over 3,000 years ago by King David. The Jews have always maintained it is their capital. Meanwhile, no other nation has ever existed that named Jerusalem as its capital city.

President Trump’s first ever visit to Israel will be around May 22 when he may make his declarations. Pray that he will do it. It is time! The next day is Jerusalem Day (50 year anniversary of the liberation of Jerusalem from Jordan during the Six Day War). This is a profoundly significant month in Biblical history being fulfilled right before our eyes.

Pray that the United States will recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Pray that we will move our Embassy, leading many other nations to follow. Pray for Presidential courage to resist Abbas and the anti-Israel principality. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

But now I have chosen Jerusalem as the place for my name to be honored, and I have chosen David to be king over my people Israel. 2 Chronicles 6:6 NLT

On a personal note, thanks for your prayers for my Idaho ministry trip. It has been wonderful having my granddaughter Aly helping me on her Bat Mitzvah trip. We had a great meeting Sunday at Sandpoint Christian Center, next Friday and Saturday nights at River of Life and next Sunday at Cocalalla Cowboy Church. Please pray for us.

Israel…Is…Real

1 12 2016

dry-bones-trumpOnce upon a time we could assume that a Jew would naturally support the survival of the Jewish State. Once upon a time we suspected all Christians of being secret antisemites. Well, those days are gone forever! Here’s hoping that President Trump appoints a dedicated Zionist to the post of Ambassador to Israel, and that does not necessarily mean a Jew. (comments by Yaachov Kirschen, Israeli cartoonist who has drawn Dry Bones since 1973)

I have enjoyed the Dry Bones cartoons almost from the beginning. It is such a joy for me to see Mr Kirschen recognizing the major change in evangelical Christendom from replacement theology to openly Zionist. I have never met him, but consider him a true friend, due to the common bond of Zionism. He knows that all Christians are not Zionists, and that it is also true that not all Jews are Zionists. I applaud him for his honesty. Keep up the great work!

On a related point, consider the hypocrisy of one of Israel’s main political parties. They have changed their name from Labor to the Zionist Party; yet, they are anti-Zionist. They are in favor of dividing the land for a two-state solution. (By the way… been there – done that! The land dedicated by Britain for a Jewish state was already divided to create a Palestinian state. That is how we got Jordan. Now they want to divide the land again for another Palestinian state!) The “Zionist Party” is just the opposite. They are co-opting the term to confuse things.

My view is clear. The only solution that will bring peace is annexation of Judea and Samaria (West Bank). As I wrote in a recent blog, if you want your prayers answered, pray what Yehovah God has already said He is going to do.

“For behold, in those days and at that time, when I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land.” Joel 3:1-2

God’s Chaos Candidate

29 10 2016

gods-chaos-candidate_finalI rarely devote my blog to encourage you to read a book, but today is important. With so much happening in our election season and the threat of world-wide chaos, you need to read a just published book by Lance Wallnau (already #19 on Amazon all books best seller list). Doreen and I have each read it this week and I urge you to read it before the election. The title is God’s Chaos Candidate.

Friday’s blockbuster (game-changer) news that the FBI is revisiting the Clinton email debacle, opens the very real possibility of a Donald J Trump presidency. Lance Wallnau’s book was written to show a different side of Trump. It also makes the case for Trump as God’s candidate. Wallnau does not predict Trump will win, but believes God raised him up for this time. He compares him not with great heroes of the faith, but rather with famous leaders not know for their faith such as the Biblical King Cyrus, Abraham Lincoln and Winston Churchill.

From the title you may think Trump is the cause of chaos, but the opposite point is made. Lance Wallnau suggest Trump is God’s answer for the coming chaos. At the least, if Trump wins, you may rest a bit easier with the softer side of Trump that is presented.

The easiest way to get it is a Kindle download, but you can also order it from Amazon and get it in two or three days. Click HERE to order it, or to read the first chapter for free.

That night the secret was revealed to Daniel in a vision. Then Daniel praised the God of heaven. He said, “Praise the name of God forever and ever, for he has all wisdom and power. He controls the course of world events; He removes kings and sets up other kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the scholars. He reveals deep and mysterious things and knows what lies hidden in darkness, though he is surrounded by light. I thank and praise you, God of my ancestors, for you have given me wisdom and strength. You have told me what we asked of you and revealed to us what the king demanded.” Daniel 2:19-23 NLT

Please pray about ordering God’s Chaos Candidate today. Pray for God’s mercy for our country. And as always, pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
