DOES PRESIDENT ELECT TRUMP HAVE A GENERATIONAL BLESSING UPON HIS FAMILY?
A few days ago I listened to a very interesting interview on http://www.trunews.com/listen/12-27-16-dr.-c.r.-oliver-the-road-to-captivity of Mr. C.R. Oliver who is a retired college professor, ordained minister, and author of many Christian books.
In this interview he pointed out how the Prophet Jeremiah was used by God to warn the nation that if they didn’t return to God they would be taken captive by a foreign power. He applied this ancient event to current events in the United States. It is a very interesting discussion and worth listening to.
During the interview he mentioned a little known revival which took place on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland from 1949-53. He said that he knew for certain that President elect Trump’s maternal grandmother, Mary Smith, took part in this revival. She was a “holiness” Presbyterian for lack of a better word.
In Exodus 20:1-17 God gives the 10 Commandments to Moses on Sinai. Within those verses we see an interesting comment by YHVH in verses 4-6:
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
In these verses the Lord is talking about “generational curses and blessing” that come upon families based on prior generations obedience or disobedience toward God. Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28 also contain lists of curses and blessing based on obedience to God’s Word or Law.
Mr. Oliver speculated that Mr. Trump’s family may have a generational blessing upon them based on his grandmother’s participation in this revival and her love of God. I found this to be very interesting. I’ve always been aware of the “generational curse” but rarely thought about “generational blessings” upon a family!
As a reader of this blog you know that I agree with Mr. Oliver that America is in a dangerous place as we are continuing to turn away from God. I believe we are already being chastised by God in the hope we return to Him as a nation.
Mr. Trump is not at this time considered to be a “religious” man. He has many imperfections in his life but it is obvious that his conservative approach to things has a “Presbyterian” foundation.
My prayer has been that God would give America additional time to decide which path it will take. Along with many others I’ve prayed for a Josiah or Hezekiah that would turn the nation back towards God or somehow make the nation clearly decide which road it would take.
The election of Mr. Trump may be that turning point. Will the nation take a lawful commonsense approach or a lawless human secular approach? Will the nation take a godly path or decide for ungodliness? I believe this is our time of decision. Mr. Trump’s time in office may clearly decide the direction the nation chooses to walk in the coming years.
We need to watch and pray and discern what God is doing—it may be much different than what we expect.
We already see Obama putting up roadblocks to Mr. Trump’s agenda. Obama treacherously double crossed Israel on December 23rd as America abstained from U.N. Resolution 2334 opening the way for war in the Middle East: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=910
Obama is also taking actions against Russia which he should have done 18 months ago. He mocked Mitt Romney when Romney said Russia was our greatest threat. Now, as he leaves, he takes action in order to thwart Trump’s desire to improve relations with Russia (a very sound idea would be to improve our relations).
Obama will continue to make other last minute decisions to make things difficult for Trump. No other outgoing president has acted in this petty manner when leaving office.
After Trump is inaugurated the Left will do everything in their power to disrupt the agenda. They will look for various ways to impeach him—watch closely how they attack.
The next four years will be tumultuous for America and the world as the people are fighting for their national sovereignty in the face of the rising beast. This is a time of momentous decisions. America and the world will decide on which course to take.
These decisions will ultimately lead to the glorious return of Yeshua ha Mashiach-Jesus the Messiah. The world is heading for great tribulation which will usher in the Millennial Kingdom and peace on earth! More to come….
