I have waited until now in order to answer this question, having now gained a better perspective. My delay is modeled after the verses that follow. They took place as Job sat with his friends who were trying to help him make sense of the horrific ordeal that had befallen him. Being younger that the three friends of Job, Elihu listened and stayed quiet as long as he could, then he finally spoke:
“So Elihu, the son of Barachel the Buzite, answered and said: “I am younger in years, and you are very old; therefore, I was afraid, and dared not declare my opinion to you.” I said, “Age should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom.” But there is a spirit in man, and the breath of the Almighty gives him understanding. Great men are not always wise, nor do the aged always understand justice” (Job 32:6-9).
If you have been following my blogs recently, you will remember that I did not prophesy a Trump victory, but I supported the true prophets who did.
So: how can we reconcile what has happened to the predictions of the true prophets?
I was surprised that no one that I know of saw the obvious answer to what has happened with these prophecies. The truth has always been in plain sight, in the Bible. So, I will now speak, knowing I am risking wrath from both those who support the prophets, and those who reject them.
We read in 2 Kings 13 about a prophetic prediction. Jehoash the king faces the doom of the Syrians and beseeches the prophet Elisha for God’s help. “And Elisha said to him, ‘Take bow and arrows.’ And he took bow and arrows. And he said to the king of Israel, ‘Put your hand upon the bow.’ And (Jehoash) put his hand upon it, and Elisha put his hands upon the king’s hands. And (Elisha) said, ‘Open the window to the east.’ And he opened it. Then Elisha said, ‘Shoot.’ And he shot. And (Elisha) said, ‘The Lord’s arrow of victory, the arrow of victory over Syria. For you shall smite the Syrians in Aphek until you have destroyed them.’ Then he said, ‘Take the arrows.’ And he took them. And he said to the king of Israel, ‘Strike on the ground.’ And he struck three times and stopped. And the man of God was angry with him and said, ‘You should have struck five or six times; then you would have struck down Syria until you had destroyed it. But now you shall strike Syria down only three times” (2 Kings 13:15-19).
First, Elisha prophesies the complete destruction of Syria at Aphek, saying, “For you shall smite the Syrians in Aphek till you have destroyed them.” But the king failed to seize the promise, and rather than striking repeatedly, Jehoash made a half-hearted effort. The promise, though valid was thwarted, and the prophet said, “But now you shall strike Syria down only three times.”
Here is what Albert Barnes’ commentary says, “God had been willing to give the Israelites complete victory over Syria, but Jehoash by his non-acceptance of the divine promise in its fullness had checked the outflow of mercy; and the result was that the original promise could not be fulfilled.”
That is a direct parallel with what happened in America. There were true prophets and false prophets. And, while their messages about Trump seemed the same, there was a stark difference. The true prophets rightly coupled the promise of Trump’s victory with a call for the Church to repent. But the false prophets spoke as if we were entitled to an automatic victory.
We also entered a “but now” moment, just as the king did. Elisha said, “But now you shall strike Syria down only three times.” In the same way, now, we got an election win, but not the victory to carry us over the finish line.
Just as the prophet ordered the king to “take arrows and strike the ground,” so God ordered the American Church to rally around Trump. The true remnant struck the ground, but many others did not. Some misguided voices diluted the church’s ability to run with the prophetic promise.
‘Woke’ voices, such as Beth Moore and Jim Wallis, notably made it their mission to insult and demean both Trump and his voters. At no time did they offer any sort of meaningful alternative to God’s provision for America.
Nevertheless, we struck the enemy three times, and we actually did win the election. Trump won by a landslide. But we did not get the full victory that would have come if the fraud had been exposed and overturned. That victory was in God’s original plan, but the American Church’s response was simply too little, too late.
We could have taken more authority over demonic power. We needed the lukewarm to repent. That is why we saw the Supreme Court collapse, and why Mike Pence and other Republican leaders chose to save their own political careers, rather than save the nation.
On January 6th, a demonic blanket of evil fell over Washington as Antifa, and BLM protestors posing as Trump supporters, along with a few misguided rightwing extremists, allowed the march to walk into a trap, release great tragedy, and handed the enemy an excuse to try and destroy Trump permanently.
That plus the lethal combination of ‘woke’ Christians, false prophets, and assorted cowards, combined to weaken the enforcement of the true prophecy that Trump would remain in the White House. Instead, we have a puppet and a Jezebel spirit lurking in the people’s house.
So where do we go from here? Just as the defeat of Syria was not denied, but only delayed, just so, I see that God still holds a miracle for us.
The most important thing we can do is to hold the remnant together and not fade into confusion and discouragement over what happened. The most powerful news is that God is at this very moment raising a new attack on the evil that has taken over the government. I believe there is a remnant who will stand between heaven and earth and take authority over the election fraud coverup, so that it can be exposed.
When the prophet Daniel realized that the 70 years of captivity in Babylon was over, he did not just sit back and assume victory would ensue. He set himself to fast, pray, and repent on behalf of Israel. Here are his own words: “In the first year of his reign I, Daniel, understood by the books the number of the years specified by the word of the Lord through Jeremiah the prophet, that He would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem. Then I set my face toward the Lord God to make request by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes. And I prayed to the Lord my God, and made confession…” (Daniel 9:2-4).
We have a great hope if we do not lose heart. First of all, Trump is not going anywhere. Look for a new plan and a new strategy to emerge. Next, the Democrats are about to make America so miserable that they will be forever despised for the damage they are doing to our nation. America is about to get socialism and progressivism out of their system for good.
While it is true that we failed to strike the ground repeatedly and with force, thank God we will have another chance to do just that, and we will prevail!
