A Note from Al:
I remember a major Pentecostal prophet in 1992 delivering a prophecy rebuking Christians who were opposing Bill Clinton. This prophecy caused a rift among Christians. He claimed that Clinton was God’s man for major change in this country including abolishing abortion. Again, this 1992 prophet was highly respected. He wasn’t some local aspirant who might get a word from God that sounded like this: “Thus says the Lord, I am the Alfalfa and the Omega.” This Jeremiah Johnson is also respected. But who will hold him responsible for invoking God falsely to justify his political miscalculations?
Catholics may not exercise the principle of church discipline or excommunication as often as they should. But at least, in principle, it could be done. In this case, the prophet would simply go off and start another ministry.
Read this prophecy and thank God for apostolic authority in the Catholic Church that can, in principle, say Nay to this “prophet.”
In His great wisdom throughout the course of human history, God has chosen not only to fulfill His plans and purposes through men and women who have yielded to the sound of His voice, but He has also chosen to accomplish His will through men and women who have ignored and rebelled against Him. One such man was King Cyrus mentioned in Isaiah 45.
Isaiah prophesied of Cyrus and speaks as a mouthpiece of the Lord when he declared, “I have even called you by your name [Cyrus]; I have named you, though you have not known Me. I am the Lord and there is no other; there is no God besides Me.
I strengthen you, though you have not known Me, so that they may know from the rising of the sun and from the west that there is no one besides Me. I am the Lord, and there is no other” (Is. 45:4-6).
What a powerful and profound prophetic declaration to a man who did not know or serve the Lord! Could God not use the wicked and ungodly to bring about His plans and purposes thousands of years ago and can He not still do the same thing again, especially in the midst of the crisis that we find America in today?
I was in a time of prayer several weeks ago when God began to speak to me concerning the destiny of Donald Trump in America. The Holy Spirit spoke to me and said,
“Trump shall become My trumpet to the American people, for he possesses qualities that are even hard to find in My people these days. Trump does not fear man nor will he allow deception and lies to go unnoticed. I am going to use him to expose darkness and perversion in America like never before, but you must understand that he is like a bull in a china closet. Many will want to throw him away because he will disturb their sense of peace and tranquility, but you must listen through the bantering to discover the truth that I will speak through him. I will use the wealth that I have given him to expose and launch investigations searching for the truth. Just as I raised up Cyrus to fulfill My purposes and plans, so have I raised up Trump to fulfill my purposes and plans prior to the 2016 election. You must listen to the trumpet very closely for he will sound the alarm and many will be blessed because of his compassion and mercy. Though many see the outward pride and arrogance, I have given him the tender heart of a father that wants to lend a helping hand to the poor and the needy, to the foreigner and the stranger.”
As the body of Christ, we must keep our ears and eyes open as we continue to move toward the 2016 elections in the United States. I believe that God is not only going to use the prayers of the saints to bring about His plans and purposes, but He is even going to use those who do not know Him. What a great comfort and source of encouragement we have in the wisdom of God in this hour.
Just as Job declared to God in Job 42:2, “I know that You can do everything, and that no thought can be withheld from You.” Let’s begin to pray in faith, knowing that God can do all things and that no purpose of His in the 2016 elections can be thwarted!
Al will have more thoughts on this today at 5:40 Eastern time. Be sure to listen!
