There is a theory running through Christian evangelical circles these days that says our President was appointed by God to save us. This has got to be difficult news to take for all those haters out there. I mean, there’s people who hate the man because the color of his hair does not match his expensive socks. Others hate him because he’s destroying those who corrupted major American legal institutions like the Department of Justice, the FBI, and Congress.

You think the pedophile rings and child traffickers aren’t sweating bullets? Trump’s promised to take them all down and destroy their $32 billion dollar per year global human trafficking scam of people, especially children, of color. “Deep State” is sweating bullets the size of missiles.
We know they in the “military-industrial-complex” as fronted by NATO, Gladio Terrorism, and the EU out of Brussels, all hate President Trump because he keeps the U.S. out of one war after another with Russia, keeping the banking corporations that own the arms dealing international corporations from raking in annual profits of over $1 Trillion dollars by promoting arms sales through manufactured war internationally. And then there’s those who just don’t believe in God, or Christianity, so to them, obviously, Trump (and Christians) are just spinoffs of Satan or Baal.

Others say it’s true. By God, Trump is our leader, they say. Carol Kuruvilla of the Huffington Post writes that there’s even proof in the form of a collaboration on a new movie. The new movie will showcase the growing prominence of a provocative belief sweeping the country that says President Donald Trump “was divinely appointed to lead the United States.”

The “collaboration” the Huffington Post speaks of is between an independent Christian filmmaker and one of America’s largest evangelical universities in America, Virginia’s Liberty University. The film project is called “The Trump Prophecy”. Kuruvilla writes that just the fact that a major Christian university participates in such a film project indicates how widespread the belief really is — that God must have had a hand in Trump’s 2016 presidential election. And the man the Holy Spirit talked to about all this is just a humble servant of God, somewhat like you and I, only he speaks more directly driven by the Source.

THE TRUMP PROPHECIES

We’ve written about Mark Taylor before in a July 2, 2018 blog entitled, Victory For The Righteous Is Judgment For The Wicked. Mark Taylor is a prophet, author, and a former fireman. For twenty years he was a first responder in Orlando, Florida, where he witnessed up close and personal all the horrors a fireman could ever imagine, and worse. Then his world took a giant leap into the unfathomable when he authored the popular book, “The Trump Prophecies”, where he told us Donald Trump would win the White House along with the first GOP primary. Trump would ultimately become President and Mark Taylor would instantly become part myth and part of the unfolding new modern historical narrative.

It was April 28, 2011, Taylor says, when he was suffering from what he describes as a “debilitating sickness,” when the Holy Spirit dropped in to inform him that Donald Trump would become President of the United States. Taylor grabbed a pen and piece of paper and scribbled down the words the Holy Spirit in the voice of Donald Trump had given to him. God had chosen Trump to bring “honor, respect and restoration” to America, the Holy Spirit said to the retired firefighter.

Upon initial analysis of the information he’d been given, Taylor believed the prediction would come true during the 2012 presidential election, which it didn’t. In 2015, Taylor showed his writing to a Christian physician and author named Dr. Don Colbert who then passed the message onto his wife, Mary Colbert. The Colbert’s too believed Taylor’s message was a prophecy.

After Trump announced his candidacy in 2015, the woman sent copies of Taylor’s words to Christian leaders across the country. Mary Colbert started what would become a grassroots prayer chain for America to “return to the Godly principles we were founded upon.”

RETURN TO THE GODLY PRINCIPLES WE WERE FOUNDED UPON

In the Huffington Post article Kuruvilla writes that many evangelical Christians view God as being highly engaged with the world, whether it’s on the larger stage of national politics or on a more personal, intimate level, by directing individuals’ career paths or healing them from sickness.

A Pew Research Center survey published in April found that 68 percent of all Americans believe that God has a hand in determining both the big and little, good and bad events in life, compared to 90 percent of evangelical Christians. The survey reveals that 91 percent of evangelicals believe God to be loving, omniscient and omnipotent. Seventy two percent of evangelicals believe God or higher power directly determines what happens in their lives all or most of the time, as opposed to only 48 percent of all Americans.

The bottom line understanding from reading the article is that if Trump were appointed by God to be president, it would be the evangelist Christians who would understand it best. Maybe that’s why Franklyn Graham, son of the late evangelist Billy Graham, told The Associated Press last month that he believes God put Trump in this position. “And I just have to think that God, for some reason, put him there for a purpose,” Graham says. “I don’t know what it is, but we need to get behind him and support him.”

WE NEED TO GET BEHIND HIM AND SUPPORT HIM

The Huffington Post cites other prominent evangelical leaders as supporting our President as well. Richard Land, a Southern Baptist leader and president of Southern Evangelical Seminary, told HuffPo in November 2016 that he believed Trump’s victory was part of God’s plan for America. Dr. Robert Jeffress, senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Dallas, is an evangelical adviser to the president, and he said after the election that the Bible is clear in telling Christians that “God alone establishes our leaders.”

There are other prominent American spiritual leaders who believe the same thing. Just look at the who’s who list of some of the country’s top Disciples of God who prayed at Donald Trump’s inauguration. They include: Televangelist Paula White who spent much of the 2016 presidential campaign working to convince evangelicals to vote for Donald Trump; Rabbi Marvin Hier, who became the first rabbi to offer a prayer at an inauguration since 1985; Bishop Wayne T. Jackson, a long-time Democrat, who is known to preach the prosperity gospel at his Detroit church Great Faith Ministries International; Rev. Franklyn Graham, president of Christian relief organization Samaritan’s Purse as well as the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association; Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the Archbishop of New York, and Reverend Dr. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Conference.

THE TRUMP PROPHECY

As for the film “collaboration”, Stephan Schultze, head of Liberty University’s cinema program, directed “The Trump Prophecy.” Schultze told The Washington Post the film will allow viewers to decide for themselves whether Taylor is a true prophet and God voted for Trump.

“The Trump Prophecy” website describes the movie as “an inspirational message of Hope, highlighting the vast beauty and greatness of the United States, its electoral process…” and concludes by asking a panel of world leaders to respond to a few questions like: What does it mean to “make America great again?” How does a healthy American economy affect world economics? What does the current US administration mean to the Middle East and specifically Israel? How does a strong US military affect the world climate for peace?

“The Trump Prophecy” movie trailer makes reference to a biblical verse that says if God’s people “humble themselves, pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways,” God will heal their land.

Schultze told the Christian Post that he hopes the movie will demonstrate how Taylor’s story provoked a prayer movement for America. “People have come together in the recognition that those prayers have value and build community and build a strong bond that allows for a president like Donald Trump to be elected,” Schultze said.

BIGGEST MESSAGE IS ONE OF HOPE

Mark Taylor says in “The Trump Prophecies” readers will also discover “how the Lord can and will use anyone regardless of education, background, or health to communicate His message to the Church of Christ.” This also appears to apply to you and me as well.

“The Trump Prophecies” will also explain what led to the miracle of the 2016 election, the author says, what the role of “we the people” for the will of God in the future will be, and what the Body of Christ needs to do to keep His blessing on our nation.

His book also informs readers how the enemy has utilized techniques of distraction to keep the Body’s focus off of God and onto internal, demoralizing disputes and how this can be overcome. In his book Taylor prophesizes what “world-altering changes” he sees taking place within our government.

But most importantly, Mark Taylor is delivering to us a message of Hope. From God’s mouth to our ears, there is a positive feeling of hope and encouragement that points to fresh methods of spreading the Gospel to the lost, and all we have to do is listen and learn.
