Donald Trump as President in 2022 or 2024? Biden, Trump and America’s Future

In the Bible, we are notified that events on earth are influenced by spiritual battles in the Heavenly realms. There are hierarchies of angels and demons battling for control on earth to save or damn souls. Each individual has to decide to side with the Holy Spirit to enthrone Jesus as the King of kings, or with the spirits of antichrist, who wants to manifest the Antichrist on earth (Genesis 19:1-27, 1 Kings 18:1-45, Daniel 12:1, 1 Timothy 4:1, 1 John 2:18, Revelation 12:7, Revelation 16:14).

The political world of today is also influenced by the spiritual world. The leaders of our nations must choose to side with the Holy Spirit to support God’s plan, or be embraced by malevolent spirits and their desire for an Antichrist kingdom. This is the reason Scripture declares we must pray for our political leaders, for us to live godly, free and peaceful lives (1 Timothy 2:1-2).

In the 2020 US presidential election, Americans had a choice between a flawed man serving freedom and a confused man laying foundations for a government seeking control over their lives. The future Antichrist kingdom will also demand total control over your life, body, speech, money, children, faith and freedoms. 

When the media declared Joe Biden will become the 46th President of the United States on 7 November 2020, I asked the Lord why He allowed this to happen.

You are trusting in the staff of this broken reed, Egypt, on which if a man leans, it will go into his hand and pierce it. So is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all who trust in him

– 2 Kings 18:21

The Holy Spirit gave me a vision of Joe Biden in November 2020 smiling in confused pride, thinking he was receiving an honorary medal around his neck, but suddenly a toilet seat was placed over his head. The solitary person who didn’t grasp he was being humiliated was Biden. The brutality of the image struck me, but the Bible can also be blunt.

If you will not hear and if you will not take it to heart,

to give glory to My name,

I will send a curse upon you and I will curse your blessings.

Yes, I have cursed them already because you do not take it to heart.

Behold, I will rebuke your descendants,

And spread refuse on your faces,

The refuse of your solemn feasts and one will take you away with it

– Malachi 2:1-3

It’s a Question of Trusting in God or Government

As I pondered the meaning of the vision in November 2020, the Lord revealed Joe Biden would be humiliated in world opinion and everything he handles would become a disaster. Now, it’s critical to understand that Christians don’t wage war against flesh and blood (Ephesians 6:12-13). This is not a Biden / Trump, Democrat / Republican issue. It’s a question of trusting in God or government. It’s faith in Jesus first and only, versus the post-Christian antichrist culture that wants to destroy the United States. Thus, when we speak of Biden, we’re really thinking about the spirits working in and through his administration. Choose this day whom you will serve (Joshua 24:15).

Biden was thrust to power on a carpet of misrepresentation and subterfuge, sold to wide-eyed gullible people that big government will solve America’s problems. Free money, yes! Everything’s free! They forget the horrors and lessons of the twentieth century. God’s blessing released by obedience is not understood by them. But the Lord revealed that in His love for them, He will allow them to experience the pain of trusting in man. Government, like Egypt’s broken staff, will pierce them as they lean on it. Government is, after all, just a group of people. Why cede your liberty to them?

Jehovah-Jireh or Man?

Previous generations of Americans trusted in Jehovah-Jireh, the Lord who will provide and the United States became the richest nation in history; just as Great Britain had formerly. But those who trust in man will reap the whirlwind of an economic and debt crisis. The 2021 economic ‘recovery,’ founded upon grotesque debt is fraudulent; it’s pain postponement, burdening other generations with the cost of our pretend prosperity. The blessed lend to many nations, those alienated from God borrow (Deuteronomy 15:6).

In the Communist Soviet Union people queued for bread for hours because trusting in man always fails. The greatest teacher in life is frequently pain, found in this case, in the misery of living under the consequences of a post-Christian government. Today, those who trust in man will find the cost of their daily bread will soar and they will feel the squeeze in every area of their lives (Matthew 6:11).

They sow the wind and reap the whirlwind.

The stalk has no head; it will produce no flour.

Were it to yield grain, foreigners would swallow it up.

Israel is swallowed up; now she is among the nations

like something no one wants

– Hosea 8:7-8

The Biden Disaster

Having watched Joe Biden’s Presidency, I am amazed how quickly disaster has befallen him. The ‘darlings’ of the media who did everything to get him elected have turned against him. Communist China is emboldened, Taiwan is threatened, Russia is massing troops on Ukraine’s border, Europe has declared it can’t trust the United States to lead the free world, and Biden’s policy on Afghanistan was denounced in the British Parliament and by a former British prime minister as “imbecilic.” It’s the toilet seat of humiliation around Biden’s head. The world wants his legacy flushed away.

Every policy agenda Biden has pursued has failed. From the manufactured humanitarian crisis at the southern border, to the growing threat of Iran to Israel, the coronavirus failure, the divisive mandates creating discord between Americans, to the shocking increase in the cost of living. He’s sacrificed American energy independence to the spirit behind ‘mother nature,’ causing inflation, employment stagnation and a supply crisis. Meanwhile, he’s sinking America’s future in a disgraceful quagmire of debt, weakening the free world’s ability to defend liberty. Money printing, now called quantitative easing, leads to a false boom and a shocking bust. If inflation rises to 10%, a grocery bill costing $50 will be priced at $55 in a year’s time and $60.50 a year after. Americans are becoming poorer. In 2021, American energy prices jumped close to 25%!

The United States is a family. Every family knows it can borrow, spend and consume recklessly with a credit card, but what happens when the bill comes in? Deep austerity and an economic depression! No honourable grandparent would steal from their grandchildren to pay for today’s woke vanity projects, but Biden is embezzling America’s future.

The Spirit and Nature of the Antichrist System

This administration’s policies embody the spirit of a future Antichrist system, with the government demanding control over your body, thoughts, speech, faith, jobs, home, children and money. The Constitution is being sacrificed to the gods of post-Christian thought. Just as this administration disregards the lives of unborn children, so it disregards the Christian principles which made America the head, not the tail (Deuteronomy 28:13).

Will President Trump Return to the White House?

I asked the Lord if Donald Trump will become the 47th President of the United States and the Lord was silent on the issue, but He said:

“Don’t put your trust in Donald Trump. He can’t save America, only Jesus can; but Trump is an instrument I am using.”

Trump walks in the Anointing of Samson

Many Christians fear Donald Trump is disqualified because they do not consider him acceptable to God. But the Lord said, “He walks in the character and anointing of Samson.” If you’re unfamiliar with Samson in Judges chapters 13-16, he was a fighter, one anointed by God to defeat formidable enemies of the Lord, but he also had a quick temper, rambunctious words and he nourished revenge.

Samson is the unconventionally called. He’s the hero Israel deserved, but not the one they wanted. No one invited Samson to a dinner party if they planned a quiet evening! But when the Philistines came to destroy Israel, all of God’s people cried to Samson and his warrior-anointing to deliver them.

Winston Churchill and Trump

The same Samson anointing rested upon another unlikely Christian hero, Winston Churchill, who was chosen by God against all odds, to resist the purposes of Adolf Hitler. People forget Churchill was branded ‘a warmonger’ and the ‘antithesis’ of what we call political correctness. He was an unlikely Christian hero, having said, “I could hardly be called a pillar of the Church, I am more in the nature of a buttress, for I support it from the outside.” Those who seek a post-Christian world of Communism still deface his statue in Parliament Square, England. But Trump respects the man who was used by God to save Western civilisation.

Flawed and Betrayed

Samson consistently defeated the enemies of Israel, but he was flawed and betrayed. The people who needed Samson to save them from their enemies turned against him. You could articulate an argument that Trump’s banning from social media is akin to Samson’s eyes being plucked out. Samson couldn’t fight without sight and Trump couldn’t fight for America, for a season, without a platform to speak from.

Perhaps the Stop the Steal campaign and the subsequent befuddling Capitol Riots bear a synthesis with Samson pushing against the pillars of an antichrist religious system. Trump didn’t want to pull down the institutions of the United States, as was claimed by those profiteering from the debacle, but the edifices of lies and corruption which soil it.

The Speaker – A Fool for a Fool

When the rioters entered the Capitol building on 6 January 2021, a self-proclaimed Shaman, painted and wearing horns, embraced the Speaker’s Seat. The Lord said, “A fool for a fool.” The Speaker of the House of Representatives has walked in the nature and spirit of Jezebel, and she was replaced at that moment, with a symbolic representation of her true nature; a fool for a fool. These post-Christian leaders are embracing the path to destruction, sacrificing American biblical liberty to an antichrist agenda.

The Lord Never Gives Up

When Samson was silenced, his enemies thought he was defeated and disgraced, but his greatest victory was ahead. The Lord never gives up on those He has chosen. Trump is not finished. He’s reshaped the Republican Party back to its core values and his legacy lasts on. However, Trump may decide the purpose of a run in 2024 will be to continue to shape American political values around Trumpism and make sure his legacy goes on beyond another election cycle. In other words, the deeper goal of a 2024 run would be to win the heart of the Republican party, as well as the selection to lead them into 2024.

Impeachment of Biden / Harris?

In the forthcoming midterms on 8 November 2022, the polls suggest taking back control of the House and hopefully making gains in the Senate. If a substantial pro-Trump majority is secured in the House and the Upper House, Biden and Harris could technically be impeached for gross incompetence. The twenty-fifth amendment was designed to defend the United States from a constitutional crisis arising from an unsound president. Today people are asking, “Who is running the country?”  

President Trump in 2022! Improbable, but Technically Possible

Could Trump be President again in 2022? On 5 June 2021, President Trump said, “We’re gonna take back the White House…sooner than you think.” But is there a path? When Lyndon B. Johnson was sworn into office just two hours and eight minutes after JFK died, he governed for a year before seeking the prospect of being elected president in his own right in 1964. But impeachment is something altogether different and time would be shockingly short to get things done.

Trump, the Speaker of the House? Improbable

The order of succession specifies with any eventuality that prevents the President from carrying on, presidential powers are passed to the Vice President first, then second to the Speaker of the House. As there is no requirement for the Speaker of the House to be an elected representative, Donald Trump could be chosen to be that speaker, leading to him possessing a path to presidential powers in 2022! A shocking and unlikely thought!

For Trump to be the 47th President of the United States in 2022, there would need to be an unprecedented controversial double-impeachment of Biden/Harris. Think about this, they subjected Trump to a failed double impeachment. But such an undertaking would be staggering, causing an unprofitable uproar. The Supreme Court would be forced to define the ongoing constitutional debate of succession in the case of impeachment: is the individual the President, or only temporarily acting as President?

Trump, the Leader of the Opposition

Whilst this could happen, it is unlikely and it could undermine the defeat of the spirits working behind this administration. Trump has created a role for himself in the United States similar to Britain’s Leader of the Opposition. He’s not in power, but he calls power to account and is shaping his party to return to biblical values. If he becomes Speaker in 2022, he could become the spoiler-in-chief, exercising considerable power to restrain Biden’s post-Christian agenda, but it could foil his chances of re-election in 2024. Trump’s legacy may be in reshaping the Republican party and restoring its confidence.

The Samson Anointing is Formidable

Trump is seventy-five, but Britain’s Queen Elizabeth is still serving at ninety-five! Winston Churchill lost power after World War II, but he secured a second term as Prime Minister of Great Britain governing the nation until he retired at eighty in 1955. The Samson anointing is formidable. In Churchill’s second term, the economy revived, unemployment fell and his legacy was a 40% rise in average real wages over the following years. Leading to the 2024 election, Trump will be close to 79. Whilst it’s clear he wants to run, he may decide his legacy is best served in preparing the Republican party for a new generation of Trump-style policies that define America, just as his legacy in the Supreme Court continues.

Let the Spirit of Communism on Biden Discredit Itself

This administration must own the failure of being post-Christian woke. Therefore, if the natural order continues, Joe Biden’s administration will continue in some form until 2024 and should be allowed to publicly fail.

Biden is Proving that Woke Antichrist Policies Never Work

The post-Christian doctrines of the woke which includes – identity politics, free money for all, unrestrained debt, open borders, herculean government, and socialism with communism – all need to reveal their true nature in a shambolic crisis that will dissolve their appeal. Nothing makes one lose faith in the Babylon system than living under it!

Only the Lord can Save the United States

The answer to America’s problems has never been politics. The Republican and Democrat Parties cannot save the United States. Even if Trump becomes President again in 2024, another four years is not long enough to reverse the shocking Biden American decline. The true nature of the problem is in the heart. Only the Lord Jesus Christ can save and redeem the United States of America and that takes place one heart at a time with repentance. Jesus said, “You must be born again!”

America’s Hope and Billy Graham’s Prophetic Warning

Billy Graham called Americans to repentance in another crisis on New Year’s Eve 1975, proclaiming,

“I believe that every problem facing us as Americans is basically a spiritual problem. Crime is a spiritual problem. Inflation is a spiritual problem. Corruption is a spiritual problem. Social injustice is a spiritual problem. The lack of will even to defend our freedoms is a spiritual problem…The great question before us tonight is: Will this nation survive as a free society? Will America turn to God at this late hour, or will America continue on the broad road that leads to destruction?…America is too young to die. But unless we wake up and accept the challenge handed to us by our forefathers, we will die, like countries and civilizations of the past.”

Resist the Coming Antichrist!

For the last eight years, I have been studying the end times and writing a new book called The End Times, the Book of Revelation, released on 10 January 2022. Two things became clear to me as I sought God: First, the Antichrist will rise to power because of an unprecedented series of crises. Second, his coming can be restrained for a season by the Church living in Holy Spirit revival power.

Ten Signs of the Economic and International Turmoil of 2021+

In my previous prophetic article, Ten Signs of the Economic and International Turmoil of 2021+, published on the 1st January 2021, I called out the fake financial boom mentality of governments who believe they can gorge on debt and money printing to remedy problems. No post-covid financial recovery has taken place! Borrowing and printing money is not recovery; it’s the foundation for a future crisis. All seems well until the bill comes in and everything crashes.

The evidence for a legitimate recovery is when the government can fund itself from taxes, without debt and money printing. There is an unprecedented crisis ahead when the ‘Everything Bubble’ bursts, with shocking implications for the world and the preparation for the Antichrist.

We must promptly resolve to protect ourselves from the danger ahead by repenting and placing our faith in Jesus Christ. Only the Christian values which saved us before can save us again. Only the God who delivered us before can deliver us again. God have mercy upon us, Amen.

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 Chronicles 7:14
