Daniel 2:21a It is He who changes the times and the epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings…

Romans 13:1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.

Proverbs 8:15 By Me kings reign, and rulers decree what is just…

Many people out there are scratching their heads. Donald Trump has been elected president. This does not make sense. Why would God allow this? Christians and many others say Trump is a moral reprobate. He says crazy, stupid stuff. He is obnoxiously wealthy and flaunts it. And look at his hair…What does God want with Donald Trump? One would think He would at least pick a Christian or a Jew. He could have chosen Ben Carson, Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, or even Bernie Sanders. What gives…Donald Trump??? CHINA!

Did God allow Donald Trump to be elected President of the United States? Scripture from Proverbs to prophets in the Old Testament to the Apostle Paul in the New Testament says…YES! He removes kings and establishes kings…

God is in control of history. That said, many are questioning God’s sovereign decision.

God has a history of taking foreign kings to achieve His will and purpose. Examples include Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon and Tiglath-Pileser of the Assyrian Empire. One particular example comes to mind, King Cyrus of Persia.

The coming of King Cyrus was promised by the prophet Isaiah.God had multiple purposes for Cyrus even though he did not know God (Isaiah 45:4b). God has no problem choosing a person who does not know Him or believe in Him. These are not obstacles to God.

Why would God choose a foreign king who does not know him? A couple of reasons for choosing Cyrus were to rebuild Jerusalem and the Temple.

Isaiah 44:28 “It is I who says of Cyrus, ‘He is My shepherd! And he will perform all My desire.’ And he declares of Jerusalem, ‘She will be built,’ and of the temple, ‘Your foundation will be laid.’” –God

God chose a Persian King Cyrus to corral and protect His people, Israel.

Isaiah 45:4 For the sake of my servant Jacob, and Israel my chosen, I call you by your name, I name you, though you do not know me.

Scholars estimate Isaiah wrote this prophecy approximately 150-160 years before King Cyrus. Fast forward in time to the book of Ezra.

Ezra 1:1 In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the LORD by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom and also put it in writing:

The remainder of the book of Ezra is the fulfillment of this promise in Isaiah 44:28.

God wasted no time. He inspired Cyrus in the first year of his leadership.

Many Christians and Christian leaders see Donald Trump as a type or pattern of King Cyrus. Even the Jewish Sanhedrin is calling on President elect Trump to act as a modern day Cyrus to help rebuild the Temple. Time will tell…

In the future, God will use a leader from what many believe to be Russia or Biblical Magog. In Ezekiel 38-39 God will use the leader of Magog, Gog, like a pawn to achieve His purpose. Ezekiel 39:7 And my holy name I will make known in the midst of my people Israel, and I will not let my holy name be profaned anymore. And the nations shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.

God is tired of people talking trash about Him.

Take comfort and be calm. Frankly, get a bigger box. God can handle a Trump presidency.

Isaiah 55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts. -God

About Paul Lehr

Paul Lehr is a Speech Pathologist and home health provider. The majority of his work focuses on swallowing disorders in neurologically impaired patients. He has been a business owner for the past 18 years. Paul earned his BS in Speech Pathology and Audiology from Oklahoma State University. His MA was completed in Speech Pathology at Oklahoma State University. When Paul’s son was born prematurely in 2003, there was lots of support from family and friends. Keeping up with phone calls was too much. So he provided e-mails with updates on health and well-being. In time, his son was healthy and came home. The e-mails stopped but Paul was encouraged to keep writing. Three years later, Paul was asked to assist in writing a Sunday school curriculum. The lessons were well received by the local body and on the church website. Again, he was encouraged to keep writing. Next, Paul taught a Sunday School class for junior high and high school students. He would share notes with others from the class he was teaching. In 2010, a young man at a local church encouraged Paul to start a blog. The website focuses on topical studies such as creation, God’s Appointed Holidays and Feasts, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, end times prophecy, ancient Hebrew cultural customs, the Prophet Isaiah, and various topical studies. Three years later, Paul’s 10 year old son told me, “Dad, you need to do updates on how the news is tied to the Bible.” The “Trend Update” was born. Since then, traffic on the website doubled in each of the next two years. Exposure continues to grow and increase from the previous year as of 2016. In the spring of 2016, a friend and fellow Boy Scout father encouraged Paul to start a YouTube channel. His friend thought it was a natural fit considering the content and subscribers from the website. The videos and written posts have been well received. Between the blog and YouTube channel, God’s prophetic words have reached over 190 countries. Isaiah 55:11 So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; it will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. Friends and family help and support the blog and YouTube channel with content ideas. There is too much happening in relation to Bible prophecy for one person to follow and command the events of our day. That same Boy Scout father would later introduce Paul to the movies of Trey Smith and the God in a Nutshell Project… Guest speak and presenter duties have focused on the topics of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in God’s Appointed Spring Feasts, Mystery Babylon, the antichrist, Ezekiel 38-39, and current events related to Bible prophecy. At this time, Paul would like to encourage each individual to learn about who God is. Because one way or another, we are all eternal. The issue is our destiny.
