In this moment of uncertainty, one thing is clear: times are changing. I do not know if Trump will play a vital role in the end times or not, although I do believe if he does, it is as a proxy for something much worse than himself, he simply being a tool and a voice.
Personally, this passage comes to mind regarding him:
“And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries” (Daniel 11:21).
After reading twitter all morning it’s clear that he is easily the most hated and reviled president-elect we have ever had (see #NotMyPresident). Regardless, he has won the vote and will come to power in January…
Another, final thought: Trump said that “now it’s time to bind the wounds of division, come together as one people.” That reminds me of this:
“And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast” (Revelation 13:3).
Do I think Trump is the beast? He may be involved, but I don’t believe he is the actual Beast. He may pass laws, he may do terrible things, but he is not that.
Regardless, though, these are the end times. No matter what happens, brethren, we must keep our faith and keep the watch, because dark times are approaching.
And remember: “…by peace [he] shall destroy many…” (Daniel 8:25).
EDIT: I’ve come to believe that Trump is an instigator. I think his purpose is to invoke a regime change, which will lead directly into the tribulation.
Short version is that it seems like Trump may cause the Left push back hard against what he stands for, ultimately targeting religion.
This is only a theory and could be wrong. I just wanted to share my thoughts.
Edit 2: After watching his inauguration, my thoughts turn again toward Daniel 11. Stay cautious. I do believe he will be key in the coming years…
Be aware and remember.
