Why am I voting for Donald Trump and why do I believe God's hand is upon Donald Trump?
It is truly sad that our nation is in the spiritual condition that she is in and that it has left us with two candidates that our nation cannot agree upon and has created great division among many circles including the body of Christ. I believe Donald Trump is God's choice to be our 45th president because of what I'm about to explain below.
If America was currently experiencing revival and a great awakening, if the spiritual condition of our nation was strong and if the church in America was a true voice for morality, righteousness and justice, then I guarantee you that we would have two different types of candidates running for the office of the presidency. We would at least for have one very strong mature, God loving and God fearing conservative, with a great testimony and a past free of controversy, a spirit filled believer that the church could rally around. But we don't have that because of the current condition, spiritually and morally that we are in as a nation. Even if Billy Graham were healthy and young enough to run for president, there is no way on earth that America would elect him today, or any of the highly respected Christian pastors that fill our nation today. A strong believer with a strong moral fortitude would be rejected by America, even by many Christians today, because the church in America is truly in a backslidden state. She doesn't want a strong moral prophetic voice because the church would have to confront her own sins. Therefore God in His wisdom and mercy raises up a Donald Trump, a King Cyrus type of leader that could rally the nation thru a patriotic spirit, to get America back on the right track and then eventually, God willing, in the future, perhaps even the next election, we could have more of a spiritual leader to consider electing. America would reject even the most godly charismatic leader right now because that leader would be a strong prophetic voice for holiness and America cannot handle that at the moment. Again in God's wisdom, God raises up a voice that Christians can rally around and Americans can be patriotic about.
This is my take why I believe Donald Trump is the perfect candidate for right now and for this season in our nation's history. He is one that God can use to simply get America pointed back in the right direction. Yes, I agree with you, he is definitely not perfect. He has a shady past, he's said and done horrible things, but so have all of us. No one can say they are proud of their past! Yet, Trump is a strong leader and the type of leader our nation needs for right now. I challenge every Christian to really search their hearts and to ask the Lord about Donald Trump and the destiny of our nation. Those of you that are still on the fence about who you're voting for or those who are dead set against Trump because you can't fathom him being our president, I ask you this question, “Is it possible that God in His wisdom may have chosen Trump to be president? Is it possible that God can use a man, though not perfect, yet at the same time it be God's will? Has God throughout human history ever used weak, frail men and women to fulfill His purposes? Throughout human history and biblical history, has God ever used even the unbeliever and the morally weak and unclean for His purposes? “ If you do the research you will see that God throughout human history has used even the vilest of human beings for His purposes in the nations.
I personally believe that Donald Trump is a Christian that needs to grow and mature spiritually. If therefore God can use the heathen why can't He use believers that are new to the faith yet have strong leadership qualities ?! God bless Donald Trump and God bless the United States of America!!
The way the enemy gets the upper hand in our lives life is by minimizing and diminishing the power of God in the life of the believer. The enemy seeks to cause us to focus our eyes and ears to be the paralyzing words of fear, doubt and unbelief. If we give our ears to lies and our eyes to that which is not, then faith becomes powerless to overcome the power of the enemy.
"He also wrote letters to insult the LORD God of Israel, and to speak against Him, saying, 'As the gods of the nations of the lands have not delivered their people from my hand, so the God of Hezekiah will not deliver His people from my hand.' They called this out with a loud voice in the language of Judah to the people of Jerusalem who were on the wall, to frighten and terrify them, so that they might take the city. They spoke of the God of Jerusalem as of the gods of the peoples of the earth, the work of men's hands." (2 Chronicles 32:17-19)
If we want to know what God is like, we simply need to look at the life of Christ and see that Jesus was filled with the same compassion to touch the poor and sick. He was moved to heal all that came to Him with their sickness and pain. Today that ministry continues through the church, those who will accept by faith His anointing to minister healing to the sick.
What are we to do as Christians? The question is should we or should we not vote? The 7 points that Carlos shares brings understanding to the Body of Christ. The Bible clearly states that His kingdom would come on earth as it is in heaven. For our nation, our homeland where we live, we have the ability to influence our sphere and then the Kingdom of God would come. Wherever we live the Lord places a very high value on the importance of desiring His Kingdom to influence our cities, our homes, our lives, corporately, and our nation and the nations of the earth.
Though the enemy may speak his lies to torment our minds and souls, we must resort to confessing and decreeing the greatness and faithfulness of our God. Faith must be the anchor that causes our minds and souls to be at ease! You and God are able to take the mountains you face and cast them into the sea! Trust and believe today!
"God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change And though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea; Though its waters roar and foam, Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. Selah." (Psalms 46:1-3)
HOW WORSHIP & INTERCESSION MAKE SPIRITUAL WARFARE
Engaging in spiritual warfare is essentially agreeing with God and disagreeing with the enemy concerning our beliefs, values, and actions. It involves reminding ourselves in prayer of God's character and covenant promises, agreeing with His Word and declaring the supremacy of Jesus. It involves confessing sin, rejecting the works of darkness, and acting in the opposite spirit by doing the works of the kingdom.
The method of “warfare” emphasized in Scripture is to agree with God in worship and intercession. When we agree with who God is, we call it worship. When we agree with what God promised to do, we call it intercession. In heaven, worship and intercession flow as one river and are woven together in the exercise of God’s government. They overlap and are deeply related. Both are necessary, so we must value both activities in our approach to God-centered spiritual warfare.
1. WORSHIP: is agreement with who God is. In worship we declare truths related to who God is such as “Holy is the Lord,” “You are worthy,” “The Lord is good, and His mercy endures forever,” etc.
"...And they do not rest day or night, saying: “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!” Whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying: “You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.” (Revelation 4:8-11)
2. INTERCESSION: is agreement with what God promises to do. In intercession we speak truths related to what God promises to do such as: “Lord, release a greater measure of Your Spirit’s activity to revive the church. Release the power of Your Word as confirmed with signs and wonders.”
"Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel’s hand. Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it to the earth. And there were noises, thunderings, lightnings, and an earthquake." (Revelation 8:3-5)
There is a supernatural work that is being done by the Holy Spirit in our midst. Throughout Church history, the Holy Spirit has always moved upon individuals or groups of people to bring forth and manifest God's prophetic will for that generation. The disciples were well trained in the ministry and how to operate in the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Jesus sent them out with authority of heaven and earth. God has not changed His mind about how He runs His kingdom or the promises He has made through the gospel message. This series will empower you to operate in the Gifts and the Power of the Holy Spirit. The teaching includes all the study notes used that are printable.

Beginning this Thursday July 14th (7-14), I will be joining many leaders in the Body of Christ across our nation in calling believers to join in united corporate prayer for one minute every day at 7:14 AM and 7:15 PM, for revival in America (at 14 minutes after the hour). America is in desperate need of a spiritual awakening and only dependence upon God and obedience to the counsel of His word is revival possible.
We will be reminded through alerts provided by a free app designed by a prayer ministry called "If 7:14” - it is based on God’s promise found in 2 Chronicles 7:14 that God will heal our land if His people will simply humble themselves and pray.
The free app will send out an alert and text message to your cell phone at 7:14 AM and at 7:14 PM. It reminds us to stop wherever we are to pray for revival with many others for one full minute. All you have to do is download the free app called "If 7:14" in your mobile device's app store. Let's stand together in united prayer and believe together for a major awakening for our nation.
“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
(2 Chr. 7:14)
The best time to serve God is now. Let us not look back on our lives with deep regret knowing that we will stand before the Lord one day and give an account for our lives.
Jesus is greater than Solomon, therefore our joy is greater than Solomon's servants because we get to stand before the King of all Kings.
