What follows is one of the most important statements I have ever made on this blog. Please read it and pass it on. — Natan Lawrence
This is what YHVH Elohim has to say about those who are on the right (i.e. conservatives) versus those who are on the left (i.e. leftists, socialists or “progressives”) morally and spiritually.
A wise man’s heart is at his right hand, but a fool’s heart at his left. Even when a fool walks along the way, he lacks wisdom, and he shows everyone that he is a fool. (Eccl 10:2–3)
Donald J. Trump is likely the most controversial and polarizing presidents in recent American history. There are those who love him, those who hate him and those who are undecided and confused. This was the case with Obama, and to some degree with all newly elected presidents, but the vitrol and hatred demonstrated against President Trump by the leftists and the left-leaning establishment media is unparalleled in my lifetime. The hatred against him including calls for his assassination is unprecedented in US history.
For many years—nearly my entire lifetime—the socialistic leftists with little interruption have seen their agendas in the US through rulings, laws and policies from the judicial, legislative and executive branches of our government being implemented one after another. This agenda has been diametrically opposed to the traditional Judeo-Christian values that made our nation great and the envy of the world. This tidal wave of evil likely started in 1962 when prayer in school was banned in New York state. Then in 1973, abortion was legalized and our nation has been sliding downhill morally and spiritually ever since with a steady stream of ungodly and unbiblical laws and agendas being foisted upon the American people.
When Donald Trump was running for president, he was an enigma to many people including me. He was a Democrat turned Republican with no track record of advocating social or morally conservative values. As such, most the Democrats hated him and the many Republicans at best disowned him and at worst despised him as well. On my part, I kept an open mind, while holding my nose. Trump made a lot of conservative-sounding campaign promises, but because of his reputation as a bombastic talker who often speaks rashly in self-exalting hyperbole and half-truths, I didn’t know whether to take him seriously or not.
Now that he is the president, we sit back and watch to see what his track will be, and what his true colors will be. So far, I have been very pleased by what I see. What righteous person couldn’t be overjoyed with the public defunding of abortion providers, the appointment of committed conservative Christians to high governmental positions, protecting our borders from terrorists and the list goes on.
For the record, I’m on no one’s side—only YHVH’s side; I am on the side of truth and righteousness as defined by the Bible. I’m totally independent of and outside partisan
politics, like YHVH. This disclaimer made, let’s now evaluate, from a righteous, logical and biblical perspective, the Donald Trump presidency as it is today in its nascency.
Donald Trump was about my last choice on the Republican side for president. I’ve been following Trump since the mid-1980s when I read his book, The Art of the Deal. I respected him as a successful businessman, but found his arrogance to be repulsive.
When Trump won the Republican nomination, I had no choice but to vote for him. Anything was better than the Jezebel, traitorous, lying, power-hungry, murderous, sexual-deviant witch running opposite him. The last thing we wanted was a continuation of the previous administration’s global socialistic policies and leftist idealistic agendas—possibly on steroids.
I consider Donald Trump’s election victory to have been a divine miracle. To hyper conspiratorialists who view Trump as a quasi-antichrist figure, they see his victory as some sort of Machiavellian Illuminati conspiracy to further implement the New World Order’s Luciferian agendas in some sort of a backhanded way. For these folks, they see a devil under every rock. Because they are wearing conspiracy-colored glasses, everything is a New World Order conspiracy. This is a too simplistic, myopic view. This perspective on world events ascribes too much power to the devil and diminishes the sovereign power of YHVH Elohim to intervene in and control events on the earth.
Moreover, if Donald Trump’s election victory was a fulfillment of some deep conspiratorial agenda, then why has the entire media, political, educational and entertainment establishment so vehemently opposed him before his election, after his election and now during his presidency? A man is known as well by his friends as by his enemies. The New World Order global elites don’t have a complete and monopolistic, puppet master control over every voice and media outlet in the world, yet nearly all were and still are aligned against Trump. They are not omnipresent nor omnipotent. Only YHVH Elohim is. Never forget that fact. The fact that Trump won against such overwhelming odds speaks more of divine intervention than of conspiracy. Think logically instead of emotionally. It’s time to take off the glasses we are wearing that are tinted by our emotional biases!
Regardless of what one thinks of Donald Trump or his policies, I see his presidency as a gift from YHVH, who, in his mercy and grace, has given the US a temporary reprieve from well-deserved judgment. We have all heard the word repreive bandied about by Christian prophecy pundits and leaders. This idea came to me before I heard others talking about it. Their talk was simply confirmation of what I already sensed. The question for us now is this: What will we as the church do with this temporary pause or stay in YHVH’s judgment? Will we continue in our lukewarmness, or will we wake up and begin challenging the evil darkness by spreading the light of the gospel more than we have been doing? The Trump presidency, to me, points to the grace of YHVH toward all of us—both the saints and the heathens. The Bible states that it rains on the just and unjust. Rain, in Hebraic thought, is a blessing.
To be sure, Donald Trump is no saint. In fact, he can be a very unsavory character. He can be brash, a bully, a liar, a quasi-egomaniac, crude, rude and even vulgar at times. These negative character traits run hugely cross grain to all those who subscribe to biblical values. But we mustn’t lose sight of one fact. If we have faith in YHVH Elohim and what the Bible says about him, then we must believe that he is sovereign—that he is all powerful and is in charge of everything, and that he can raise up and pull down leaders. He can even change the direction of a leader’s heart as Proverbs tells us, and was the case with many notable heathen and Israelites leaders as recorded in the Bible. The fact is that the Bible records that Elohim used some very unsavory characters to accomplish his divine will. He used a womanizer like Samson to defeat the Philistines and to liberate the children of Israel, the divorcee-murderer Moses to lead his people out of Egypt and as a vessel to receive the Torah, the Christian murdering Paul to help evangelize the Roman Empire and to write one-third of the New Testament, and the murderer-adulterer David to establish a kingdom on this earth that would never end, eventually leading to the birth of the Messiah and his eventual rulership over the world. If we don’t think YHVH can’t use a Donald Trump, then we have a diminished view of YHVH Elohim and his sovereign power!
Whatever one may think of Donald Trump, YHVH is sovereign and sets up and pulls down who he wants to govern nations. He’ll use anyone that pleases him to accomplish his purposes. In the Bible, he used Pharaoh, Nebuchadnezzar, Cyrus, Pilate, and even Balaam’s ass. Yeshua tells us that Elohim can even raise up rocks to praise him!
Make no mistake about it, the US (and all Western nations as well) is in a cosmic struggle between the forces of good and evil. Trump has become a lightning rod to attract the murderous wrath of the satanic left against whatever vestiges of biblically-based good still remain in this country. In the US, we are in a new Civil War. It is an ideological war, and it is beginning to become violent. There are many people on the left who have an anger management problem!
What’s going on in the US reminds me of the antichrist forces that brought on the French Revolution of 1789. At that time, the secular humanists inspired by philosophers (e.g. Voltaire and Rousseau) of the so-called Enlightenment Period rose up in a fevered pitch against the ruling establishment including the church and swept like a tsunami over anything and everything remotely biblically-oriented. Ultimately this was an outright Satanic rebellion against and hatred for Elohim and his sovereign authority. This revolt changed Europe and the western world forever.
During the French Revolution, this tidal wave of secular humanistic evil all but swept France clean of Christianity. The Christian religion was virtually banned from France and a new god was worshipped called the Supreme Being or the God of Reason. The mind of man (or the Cult of Reason) was established and eventually gave way to outright worship of the ancient goddesses of Egypt and Greece (i.e. Isis or Cybil). Catholic priests by the tens of thousands in fear of the guillotine defected from the Christian faith and churches and cathedrals like the famous Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris were turned into centers of pagan sex goddess worship and debauchery. The French Revolution was an all out war against the church, the Bible, Elohim, the family and morality. This continued until the time of Napoleon. Secular humanism rose up to kick Elohim off his throne, and France to this day has never recovered from that period and remains one of the most secular, libertine, socialistic and unchurched countries in Europe. Many of the demonic spiritual forces at play during the French Revolution are at work in America presently. The connection point between then and now is the left’s hatred for religion, the Bible, Christianity, and the morality it advocates. In its place the left wants godlessness, goddess worship, witchcraft, Luciferianism, sexual licentiousness and the eradication of Christianity and morality.
Interestingly, the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration, there was a huge woman’s march in Washington D.C. (and similar ones all across America). This march was one of the most vulgar displays of filth, perversion and hatred to ever hit this country. Foul-mouthed and lewd feminists, lesbians and sexual deviants vehemently proclaimed their so-called rights and freedom to murder their unborn babies and they celebrated their sexual licentiousness by wearing pink hats resembling female genitalia. This movement was demonically inspired and was nothing more than the rising up from the pit of hell of the ancient worship of the gods and goddesses of Baal, Moloch, Ashterah, Isis and Cybil who were worshipped anciently through child sacrifice and lewd and immoral sexual practices. In this respect, this was the French Revolution revisited. The same spirit of hatred, death and destruction that was behind the French Revolution where between 20 and 200 thousand people were beheaded by the guillotine is the same murderous spirit behind the demonstrators that are marching throughout America protesting Donald Trump as they burn, loot, pillage, vandalize and attack people and property.
In our day in America, like the forces driving the French Revolution, it’s all out war against the Bible and the people who follow it. In the history of this country, we have never seen such all out hatred for traditional biblical values that we see today.
The recent Tea Party Movement was a populous reaction against the leftist agendas of Obama and the Democrats who gleefully kicked all references to God out of their party’s 2012 political platform. The Tea Party Movement promoted mass rallies all across the country, but there was never the violence, hatred, threats, vandalism, blocking of roads and freeways, vile and lewd speech and calls for assassination that the anti-Trump, God-hating leftists are manifesting today. This shows that those on the so-called right side of the political spectrum are more law-abiding and moral than their counterparts on the left.
In the hatred and violence of the leftists, their true colors are coming out—or, more accurately, being exposed for all to see. This hate-filled reaction is being brought on, in part, by some of Donald Trump’s pro-Christian and biblical policies, agendas and appointments. This is revealing in plain view the left’s hatred for the Bible and Christians. This is why the leftists are willing to ally themselves with the communists and Moslems. The glue that binds these seeming disparate groups together is their hatred for Elohim, the Bible and his followers. This is proof that the Elohim-hating Satan the devil is the motivating spiritual force behind all of these movements.
The left’s hatred this time is not just being manifested by an unruly mob of young, college student leftists like we saw in the 1960s in America. The anti-Trump hatred has gone mainstream. This, I believe, is part of the spiritual shaking going on in America by the hand of YHVH. As YHVH allowed the dark and evil deeds of some politicians to be exposed during the recent presidential campaign, this unveiling of darkness continues. This is helping to awake the sleeping righteous saints who have been blinded by a phenomenon called normalcy bias. This occurs when people accept the status quo and assume that nothing will ever change. When it does, in denial of reality, they refuse to accept it, since “things have always been this way.”
As already stated and as is obvious to see, Donald Trump is no saint, but YHVH is using him, in part, as simply a tool or a lightening rod to expose the true colors of Americans. Are they for or against the God of the Bible? The darkness is getting darker and the light is getting brighter. Not only that, YHVH is testing the church. What will we do during this reprieve of his righteous judgments against a wicked nation? Will the saints wake up or go back to sleep?
YHVH is giving the US (and maybe some other western Christian nations as well) a brief reprieve to give Bible believers more time to get ready spiritually for Yeshua’s second coming. We must pray that a revival occurs like happened at the end of the 1960s among the hippies, which has commonly been called the Jesus People Movement. America hasn’t had a spiritual revival since then. Pray that the church wakes up, repents of sin and gets bold in spreading the gospel—that we don’t go back to sleep because we’re in a reprieve. Too many Christians are playing church. Most, according to credible statistics, who go to church aren’t even saved. They’re playing religious games with Elohim, and he’s not fooled. The tares in the church and among church leaders are being exposed like never before. Judgment must first begin at the house of Elohim!
President Donald Trump has done some good things thus far, but it’s still too early in his presidency with regard to his implementing of some pro-Christian policies to see if this trend will continue. Keep in mind that President Trump can only do so much, since he has limited powers. Because of the US’s tripartite form of government, he will need the help of the other two branches of the US government—the judicial and legislative. The US is not a dictatorship, so one branch of government can’t do everything by itself. Who knows what will come next. Perhaps the pro-Christian policies will continue, maybe not. Only time will tell. The wise watchman mustn’t be lulled into a false sense of security and complacency just because Trump has done several good things to begin with. What matters is not how the race starts, but how it ends.
America is still ripe for divine judgment. I fear that economic collapse is still just around the corner. The economic fundamentals are still sick. Moreover, we’re still fundamentally spiritually sick, backslidden and largely apostate, and this includes the church. Wickedness still has a hold on this nation. Unbiblical and ungodly values are endemic to the ethos of our country. The Damocles sword of YHVH’s judgment is still hanging by a horse hair over our collective heads. The heart and spirit of a nation won’t be turned around overnight, if ever.
The best I see happening in America is that some Christians will be awakened out of their spiritual, lukewarm, Laodicean sleep. For the vast majority of American church-goers, they will wipe their mouth and brow and breathe a sigh of relief as they’re thinking “let the good times roll—we’ve dodged a bullet” and now let’s go back to gorging ourselves at the giant food trough called America, and it’s nap time afterwards. Turn the TV back on. It’s back to our sports and entertainment, which is the opiate of the asses (to quote Michael Savage)! The same will be true of most religious leaders. For them, it will be business as usual as they pursue money and power as they continue to feather their own spiritual nests.
On the bright side, there will be a remnant who’s eyes will be opened, who will discern the times and seasons and who will renew their commitment to choose to serve and obey YHVH Elohim no matter the cost. They will choose to follow the Lamb wherever he goes, even to death. May this number grow during this reprieve!
Make no mistake about it, the Bible prophesies that when Yeshua returns, he will destroy a Babylon the Great, New World Order, Antichrist, Luciferian system that has its boot on the neck of the world. Revelation chapters 13 and 17 through 19 speak of this. That system will continue to tighten its stranglehold, iron-fisted grip on the nations of the world including America. The Bible-believing saints will continue to be hunted down and marginalized, and persecuted if not killed. This is because Satan and his followers hate anything that has to do with the Bible, with YHVH Elohim and Yeshua the Messiah. Ultimately, it’s a cosmic struggle between YHVH Elohim and Satan the devil. Humans—specifically, the heart and mind or soul of man—are the battlefield where this war is being fought. The soul of America is hanging in the balances like never before. This, in a sense, is World War III. It is certainly a new civil war in America—a battle for the soul of our nation.
Is America Babylon the Great? Yes and no. The Book of Revelation reveals that Babylon the Great is worldwide system that involves all the nations. So it’s bigger than just one nation. However, America because of its power and influence, may well be the leader of Babylon the Great, but it’s not exclusively Babylon. To think that it is ignores biblical truths and is too simplistic of a view.
Revelation chapters 13, 17 and 18 reveal that Babylon the Great is a worldwide political, religious and economic system that controls the world and men’s lives. It promotes a worldwide spiritual delusion that opposes biblical truth and is pro-Satan. It controls the economic activities of the world. The great leaders in this system are multinational businesses. This ungodly system turns humans into slaves and controls them through witchcraft and drugs (both legal and illegal). At its head are demon-possessed and demon-empowered individuals. Basically, the world-ruling system we see in place at Yeshua’s second coming is a worldwide corporate fascistic system where business oligarchs along with governmental bureaucrats ally themselves to rule the populous in a neo-feudalistic system that combines elements of both capitalism and socialism with Luciferianism as the system’s politically correct and officially promoted world religion. In this end-times system of feudalism, the business oligarchs and governmental leaders are the ruling elite or nobility that own nearly everything, have or control most of the world’s wealth and simply use the populous as their serfs or drone worker bees to work their land and factories. These leaders will keep the people fat, dumb and happy for their malevolent purposes. Both George Orwell (in his book 1984, published in 1948) and Aldus Huxley (in his book, A Brave New World, published in 1932) predicted this. Plato wrote of this type of governing system some 2500 years ago in his famous work entitled Plato’s Republic. We see shades of this in the works of Karl Marx, the father of modern communism, who wrote in the mid-1800s.
Donald Trump may only be forestalling the full implementation of this end-times system briefly, or in some nefarious way, he may wittingly or unwittingly be enabling that system’s fuller implementation. To be sure, I don’t believe that Trump is a messianic figure nor do I believe that he is the man of sin or the antichrist figure the Bible alludes to. Only time will tell what his true colors will be. Whatever and whoever Trump really is, one thing is certain, and we must never take our eyes off this fact: YHVH Elohim is in charge and rules in the affairs of men. World leaders are chess pieces in his hands. Period.
To be sure, there are some very troubling things about Donald Trump such as his past penchant for paganism. Some Christians claim that he recently “accepted Christ” and that he’s “a baby Christian.” This may be true, but considering the low view in the church world as to what constitutes being a Christian compared to what the Bible really teaches on this subject, I don’t put much credence in these reports, although I hope they’re true. It takes time for true spiritual fruit to be manifested and only then can righteous judgments be made. So far, it’s too early to tell. In the mean time, the Bible tells us to pray for our leaders. Please pray for Donald Trump!
One thing is certain though, it is time for the saints of the Most High YHVH Elohim to awake out of their spiritual slumber, to become wise virgins, to fill their spiritual lamps with oil and to pray for boldness to share the gospel with those around them like never before, to oppose evil in every way possible in a godly manner, and to continue to watch and pray as Yeshua instructed his disciples and us to do. It is time to repent of sin, and to put on holiness and righteousness and to get more serious than ever about one’s spiritual walk and relationship with Yeshua the Messiah.
In conclusion, I have a word of warning for those in the Christian church claiming to be prophets, watchmen and seers who are putting out prophetic words about Donald Trump, the fate of America, the rest of the world, the end times and everything and everyone else. Mark this and mark it well: All the biblical prophets of YHVH Elohim in both the Old and New Testaments including the apostles were Torah-obedient. To believe otherwise is to believe a lie. Period.
Most today who claim to be hearing from Elohim don’t even know what the Torah is, how to define it and, moreover, are often blaspheming (wittingly or unwittingly) the Torah by speaking against it. Yeshua said of the Torah, “Think not that I am come to destroy the Torah-law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the Torah-law, till all be fulfilled” (Matt 5:17–18). Of such prophets and everyone else, Yeshua concluded by saying, “Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least Torah-commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven” (Matt 5:19). According to Yeshua, those who speak against the Torah will be least in his kingdom. Mark these words well, you who claim to be prophetic!
Moreover, most who call themselves prophets and watchman are unaware of the biblical truth that there are eleven levels of a prophet. Most so-called modern prophets are operating at the lowest levels, and may not even hold the office of a prophet despite their claims. Many are simply walking in their own delusions and are being strengthened and affirmed in their delusions by a Babylonian church system that is as equally spiritually errant, blind and ignorant of biblical truth as they are.
Furthermore, most so-called prophets do not know the difference between an apostolic prophet and a church prophet. One who is the latter and is trying to act as the former may actually fall into the category of being a presumptuous prophet (a biblical term), and is, in reality, one who is usurping authority that doesn’t belong to him.
Moreover, not only are most prophets not Torah-obedient as they should be, but they do not recognize the difference between a false prophet and a spiritually blind prophet who prophesies out of the dictates of his own heart, thus making him a carnal prophet (like Balaam).
Before you speak another word in the name of YHVH Elohim (“the LORD God”), you would be advised to understand these truths and become compliant to the whole counsel of YHVH’s word. Until you do, you will bring Elohim’s judgment upon yourselves as presumptuous and carnal prophets.
