Donald Trump in Prophecy

By COGwriter

Businessman and television celebrity Donald Trump has gotten a lot of attention since he announced his presidential campaign on June 2015--he has often dominated the mainstream news from that time to his departure on January 20, 2021.

On November 8, 2016, he became 'President-Elect' of the USA and on January 20, 2017, the 45th president of the USA.

He has been prophetic in the sense that his election, statements, and policies have pushed towards the fulfillment of various biblical prophecies.

Initially believed by many pundits as likely to just self-implode when he announced his candidacy, Donald Trump has repeatedly defied 'conventional wisdom' in USA politics.

He spoken out strongly on many matters and differently than many other US politicians. Years ago, he has claimed to be a Republican, then Independent, then Democrat, but later switched to be part of the Republican party.

Many do not like him. Many consider him the answer.

He claimed he wouldl make "America great again." Could he?

Is he the "Trump of God'? Is he the modern day "Cyrus"? Are there biblical, Catholic, or Islamic prophecies about him?

Could Donald Trump somehow be apocalyptic?

Towards it end, this article gives 20 reasons why he has had prophetic impact. A related video is titled: Donald: 'Trump of God' or Apocalyptic?

Religious Background

Donald Trump has something in common with Pope Francis and former Democratic vice-presidential nominee Tim Kaine according to Time:

Here’s a quiz: What do Donald Trump, Tim Kaine and Pope Francis have in common?

Answer: all three men were educated by Jesuits, a religious order of Catholic priests whose most famous member is the Pope himself.

For Trump, his two years at Fordham University, a Jesuit school in the Bronx, seem to leave little impact on his life. After his sophomore year, Trump transferred to the Ivy league University of Pennsylvania. (Hale CJ. What Tim Kaine, Donald Trump and Pope Francis Have In Common. July 23, 2016

Donald Trump himself claimed to be a Presbyterian and a Christian:

(CNN) Donald Trump talked about his Christian faith Saturday, but said he’s never sought forgiveness for his sins. …

“People are so shocked when they find … out I am Protestant. I am Presbyterian. And I go to church and I love God and I love my church,” he said.

Moderator Frank Luntz asked Trump whether he has ever asked God for forgiveness for his actions.

“I am not sure I have. I just go on and try to do a better job from there. I don’t think so,” he said. “I think if I do something wrong, I think, I just try and make it right. I don’t bring God into that picture. I don’t.”

Trump said that while he hasn’t asked God for forgiveness, he does participate in Holy Communion.

The Bible teaches:

7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:7-9)

The Bible also says that Christians are to repent (Acts 2:38) AND examine themselves before taking the bread and wine (1 Corinthians 11:27-29), but Donald Trump apparently does not really believe in things like that.

Notice something related to the Presbyterian Church:

The Presbyterian Church (USA) has turned on Donald Trump who is still feeling the impact of his row with Pope Francis over his suggestion he was "not a Christian" for proposing a border wall with Mexico. ...

The leadership of Presbyterian church he was born into says his extreme views on how to deal with immigration are out of line with its teachings.

Rev. Gradye Parsons, the most senior elected official of the Presbyterian Church (USA) to which Trump was baptized as a child, said that the Bible is clear:, stating followers of the faith have to care for the needy.

"Donald Trump's views are not in keeping with the policies adopted by our church by deliberative process," he said.

In an interview with the UK's Guardian newspaper, Parsons said that the Presbyterian church had voted several times since the 1990s in its national general assemblies in favor of comprehensive immigration.

These allowed for granting a route to legal status for the 11 million undocumented people currently living in the United States.

"Our official policy is to encourage immigration reform," noted Parsons. ...

"Anyone, whoever he is, who only wants to build walls and not bridges is not a Christian," Francis said on the papal flight from Mexico in answer to a question from a journalist.

"Vote, don't vote, I won't meddle. But I simply say, if he says these things, this man is not a Christian," Francis said. ...

"I'm proud to be a Christian, and as president I will not allow Christianity to be consistently attacked and weakened, unlike what is happening now with our current president," he said Trump. ...


Trump was confirmed as a child at the First Presbyterian Church in Jamaica, Queens, and has always self-associated as a Presbyterian.

He says he now worships at the Marble Collegiate Church in Manhattan, part of the Reformed Church in America denomination, the Guardian reported.

Parsons, who is the "stated clerk" or chief executive of the 1.6 million-strong Presbyterian Church in the United States, said he would stop short of the Pope's suggestion that Trump's views on immigration decreed him "not a Christian."

But he noted that "Biblical mandates are important - how people care for the oppressed and the alien acts as a marker of whether they are following their faith." February 22, 2016

After Presbyterian church issues, Donald Trump began referring to himself as a Christian and stopped mentioning the Presbyterian church.

Donald Trump has been married three times and broke up with his first wife because he was having an adulterous affair (like Ashley Madison promoted, watch Ashley Madison: Your Sins Will Find You Out), with the woman who later became his second wife. The Bible teaches against adultery, including in the New Testament (see The Ten Commandments and the Early Church).

It should be clear to all who claim to believe the Bible that Donald Trump is not actually a Christian.

Is Donald Trump the 'Trump of God'?

Certain Protestants were convinced Donald Trump would and/or now is the answer for the USA.

Notice the following claims from Protestant minister Jeremiah Johnson:

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. (Johnson J. Prophesy: Donald Trump Shall Become the Trumpet –Posted on Charisma Magazine 7/28/2015)

Despite what the above claims, Donald Trump has not focused much on national sins of the USA (though he has been a critic of abortion), but has had his own issues with lies.

Some Protestants have even claimed that Donald Trump could be the ‘trump of God.’ Here are two:

I am not suggesting that Donald Trump absolutely *IS* the last trump – but since the LAST TRUMP is one of the most clear and final signs in end times prophecy, can we overlook the possibility that a presidential candidate named Trump is being used as a sign by God?  …

As for biblical clues on an end times TRUMP:

First, Paul wrote to the Church at Thessalonica, “But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words” (I Thess. 4:13-18).

Second, Paul wrote to the Church at Corinth, “Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality” (I Cor. 15:51-53). …

I strongly suspect that 2016-2019 will wrap up the fulfillment of all end times Bible prophecy. (Montaigne D. Donald Trump in Prophecy? “The Last Trump. May 12, 2016. ttps:// viewed 12/14/2016)

This is Chapter 1 of a series of signs from God, of the Apocalypse and Mr. Trump is one of those signs!
King James Bible: 1 Corinthians 15:52

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

All Biblical musicians know that the last trump equals a musical note! So that would mean the last note or sound coming out of the trumpet! So when Mr. Donald J. Trump speaks his last word, that will be the last note. This is a spiritual sign!

This is the key to interpreting Revelation
King James Bible: Revelation 1:19,

(1) Write the things which thou hast seen, and (2) the things which are, and (3) the things which shall be hereafter;
So you will use the living words of GOD in the past to interpret the future!

Why Mr. Donald J. Trump, (the trump of God) will be an act of grace. It will call the undeserving Church into heaven. (Breaking News: The Trump of God vs Rev 17:1 Number 1 of a Series of Signs By: Johnnie Roy Maul. accessed 12/19/16)

Let it be explicitly stated that I wrote about the above years ago "that all end time biblical prophecy will not be wrapped up by 2019 (for some details, check out the article: When Will the Great Tribulation Begin?) and the Church will NOT be raptured to heaven because of Donald Trump (see Is There A Secret Rapture for the Church? When and Where is the Church Protected?)."

Furthermore, I do not believe that Donald Trump’s name is specifically related to scriptures in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 or 1 Corinthians 11:51-53.

Those are end time prophecies related to the return of Jesus, not a Donald Trump Administration.

While I understand why certain Protestants support Donald Trump (as well as why certain other Protestants cannot stand him), those who believe that Donald Trump was/is the answer for the USA simply overlook scripture.

More civil unrest is coming to the USA (cf. Deuteronomy 32:25).

Is Donald Trump 'Cyrus'?

Area called the Temple Mount (Andrew Shiva)

On December 6, 2017, Donald Trump had the USA officially acknowledge Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel.

Because of Donald Trump’s decision on December 6, 2017 related to Jerusalem, some think this will make it easier for a ‘Third Temple’ to be built there:

Laurie Cardoza-Moore, “founder/president of Proclaiming Justice to The Nations” wrote in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz: “Christians recognise the Jews’ biblical connection through King David’s establishment of Jerusalem as the capital of ancient Israel and the location for both the first and second Temples. According to the prophets, Ezekiel, Isaiah and the Apostle John, all Israel awaits the rebuilding of the Third Temple. President Donald Trump may implement one of the most biblically historic initiatives of his presidency by allowing the first step of the Jerusalem Embassy Act to go into effect. “

President Donald Trump’s epic proclamation on Wednesday acknowledging Jerusalem as the eternal capital of the Jewish people was a major step towards establishing the Third Temple and bringing the Messianic era, said a number of Jewish activists working to rebuild the Holy Temple.

“What he did … was an enormous step in bringing the Temple,” Asaf Fried, official spokesman for the United Temple Movement, an association of organizations working towards making the Third Temple a reality, told Breaking Israel News.

He added, “This necessarily had to come from a non-Jew in order to bring them into the process, so they will be able to take their part in the Temple.”

Fried compared Trump’s role to that of Cyrus, the Persian King who ended the Babylonian exile and helped build the Second Jewish Temple. Fried cited Proverbs to emphasize this point.

Like channeled water is the mind of the king in Hashem’s hand; He directs it to whatever He wishes. Proverbs 21:1

“There have been amazing advances towards bringing the Temple this year. It was clear that Trump was part of that process, guided by Hashem (God),” Fried declared.

Yakov Hayman, the United Temple Movement chairman, saw Trump’s statement as part of a historical progression joining a number of major shifts in modern history for Israel and the Jewish people.

“1917 was the Balfour Declaration establishing Israel for the nations,” Hayman told Breaking Israel News. “2017 was Trump’s declaration.”

Now, I am aware that many have considered that Donald Trump was a type of modern Cyrus–essentially a non-believer that God would use to do things, in Donald Trump’s case, to reduce abortions, overturn the LGBTQ agenda, etc. Actually, in March of 2018, Donald Trump did attribute a quote to Cyrus the Great (see Donald ‘Trump of God,’ Cyrus, or Apocalyptic?) which, at least in my view, he was trying to make the Cyrus connection that he must be aware that others have claimed him to be a type of.

Here is the Cyrus prophecy:

24 “This is what the LORD says— your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: I am the LORD, the Maker of all things, who stretches out the heavens, who spreads out the earth by myself, 25 who foils the signs of false prophets and makes fools of diviners, who overthrows the learning of the wise and turns it into nonsense, 26 who carries out the words of his servants and fulfills the predictions of his messengers, who says of Jerusalem, ‘It shall be inhabited,’ of the towns of Judah, ‘They shall be rebuilt,’ and of their ruins, ‘I will restore them,’ 27 who says to the watery deep, ‘Be dry, and I will dry up your streams,’ 28 who says of Cyrus, ‘He is my shepherd and will accomplish all that I please; he will say of Jerusalem, “Let it be rebuilt,” and of the temple, “Let its foundations be laid.” ’ (Isaiah 44:24-28)

45:1 “Thus says the Lord to His anointed,
To Cyrus, whose right hand I have held —
To subdue nations before him
And loose the armor of kings,
To open before him the double doors,
So that the gates will not be shut:
2 ‘I will go before you
And make the crooked places straight;
I will break in pieces the gates of bronze
And cut the bars of iron.
3 I will give you the treasures of darkness
And hidden riches of secret places,
That you may know that I, the Lord,
Who call you by your name,
Am the God of Israel.
4 For Jacob My servant’s sake,
And Israel My elect,
I have even called you by your name;
I have named you, though you have not known Me. (Isaiah 45:1-4)

We see that this was fulfilled in Ezra:

1 Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and also put it in writing, saying,

2 Thus says Cyrus king of Persia:

All the kingdoms of the earth the Lord God of heaven has given me. And He has commanded me to build Him a house at Jerusalem which is in Judah. 3 Who is among you of all His people? May his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem which is in Judah, and build the house of the Lord God of Israel (He is God), which is in Jerusalem. 4 And whoever is left in any place where he dwells, let the men of his place help him with silver and gold, with goods and livestock, besides the freewill offerings for the house of God which is in Jerusalem.

5 Then the heads of the fathers’ houses of Judah and Benjamin, and the priests and the Levites, with all whose spirits God had moved, arose to go up and build the house of the Lord which is in Jerusalem. 6 And all those who were around them encouraged them with articles of silver and gold, with goods and livestock, and with precious things, besides all that was willingly offered.

7 King Cyrus also brought out the articles of the house of the Lord, which Nebuchadnezzar had taken from Jerusalem and put in the temple of his gods; 8 and Cyrus king of Persia brought them out by the hand of Mithredath the treasurer, and counted them out to Sheshbazzar the prince of Judah. (Ezra 1:1-9)

The Pulpit Commentary states about the prophecy in Isaiah:

It is certainly a very marvellous thing that Isaiah, living at the close of the eighth and the beginning of the seventh century B.C., should -mention a king by name who did not ascend the throne till the middle of the sixth; but no one can suppose that God could not have made such a revelation to him if he pleased.

Donald Trump was NOT doing the same thing and the Cyrus prophecy was fulfilled thousands of years ago.

But various Protestants and some others have attempted to claim that Donald Trump is a modern day Cyrus and/or the “trump of God” (e.g.–.html?soid=1111272225814&aid=n0ARlA9mD3Q).

Donald Trump is apocalyptic–chapter 7 of my book Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse is titled “20 Reasons Why Donald Trump is Apocalyptic,” and world events have already began to confirm many of those 20 reasons (watch Trump Presidency Magic 8 Ball or Bible Prophecy?).

But unlike Cyrus, Donald Trump was not prophesied by name to get a Jewish temple rebuilt. Nor did that happen under his Administration.

Bas-relief of a winged ‘Cyrus the Great’ (Pentocelo) and Donald Trump

Notice also the religious news report:

As all eyes are focused on Jerusalem once again because of President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. …

In the messianic era, the third and final Temple is prophesied to be built in Jerusalem. In the extensive vision of the new Temple given to Ezekiel (Ezekiel 40–48), which includes detailed descriptions of the restoration of the Temple, the altar, the priesthood, and the land of Israel, he is told that the name of the new city from then on will be “the Lord is there.”

Isaiah 56:7 tells us it will be “a house of prayer for all nations” and the direct connection between heaven and earth will be established once again. Jewish people long for this day. In the Amidah prayer, which observant Jews pray three times daily, they ask God to rebuild Jerusalem and to restore the Temple worship.

Many Christians also believe the Third Temple will either precede or coincide with the arrival of the Messiah. The Christian Scriptures, specifically the book of Revelation, contain a description of the end times, including more than one mention of “the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God” (Revelation 3:12).

But real Christians should realize that in the New Testament church, it is Christians, not a Jewish building, that represents the Temple of God (for details, check out the article hy is a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem Not Required?).

Did Donald Trump Fulfill Jeremiah 31:22-25?

Breaking Israel News (BIN) reported the following:

Over 200 Israeli Rabbis Sign Letter Thanking Trump for “Fulfilling Prophecy of Jeremiah”

November 22, 2019

Over 200 rabbis, including the Chief Rabbis of Israel, sent a letter to President Trump, thanking him for his recognition of Israel’s right to Judea and Samaria. The letter was composed by the Chief Rabbi of Tzfat, Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu and published in Srugim compared the political move to the prophecy of Jeremiah.

Again you shall plant vineyards On the hills of Shomron; Men shall plant and live to enjoy them. Jeremiah 31:4

“Over 2,500 years ago, the Prophet Jeremiah claimed that the nation of Israel would return to the hills of Samaria and plant their vineyards there.”

The Rabbis then cited another verse in Jeremiah as being manifested by Trump’s actions.

Thus said the lord of Hosts, the God of Yisrael: They shall again say this in the land of Yehuda and in its towns, when I restore their fortunes: “Hashem bless you, Abode of righteousness, O holy mountain!” Jeremiah 31:22

“We get to live in the generation where these prophecies are fulfilled word for word. 130 years ago, Jew from all over the world started returning to Israel. 72 years ago, the nation was freed from foreign rule. 52 years ago we returned to Jerusalem, Hebron, and the rest of Judea and Samaria. Our enemies did not accept this, and are still trying to stop the process. But God has promised to Abraham that ‘Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies’, and we have seen with our own eyes how ‘Five of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand, and your enemies will fall by the sword before you’”.

“We are grateful for the blessing of peace, of the hills of Israel producing fruit, and of the Israeli economy gathering strength” the letter read. “We are grateful that the world recognizes Israel’s mission to bring joy and hope to the world, to strengthen justice and bring everlasting peace. Two years ago we got your recognition of the central position Jerusalem has in our country, followed by recognition of the Golan Heights – and now we are blessed with your recognition of the legality of the Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria”.

“The United States of America were one of the first countries to support the founding of the State of Israel. The presidents of the US were honored to support Israel, and be part of the fulfillment of the Prophet’s predictions of the return of Zion and the foundation of the State of Israel. It is a rare honor for you to be the first President to lead this recognition”.

Did Donald Trump just fulfill Jeremiah 31 word for word?

No, Donald Trump did NOT fulfill Jeremiah 31.

Also, unless the translation that BIN is using differently numbered verses (and it looks like it does), here is how the Jewish Publication Society renders Jeremiah 31:22:

22 How long wilt thou turn away coyly, O thou backsliding daughter? For the LORD hath created a new thing in the earth: A woman shall court a man. (Jeremiah 31:22, JPS)

It appears what BIN cited as Jeremiah 31:22 is usually referred to as the next verse, which is shown below with two translations as well as two following verses for context:

23 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: Yet again shall they use this speech In the land of Judah and in the cities thereof, When I shall turn their captivity: ‘The LORD bless thee, O habitation of righteousness, O mountain of holiness.’  24 And Judah and all the cities thereof

Shall dwell therein together: The husbandmen, and they that go forth with flocks. For I have satiated the weary soul, And every pining soul have I replenished. (Jeremiah 31:23, JPS)

23 Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: “They shall again use this speech in the land of Judah and in its cities, when I bring back their captivity: ‘The Lord bless you, O home of justice, and mountain of holiness!’ 24 And there shall dwell in Judah itself, and in all its cities together, farmers and those going out with flocks. 25 For I have satiated the weary soul, and I have replenished every sorrowful soul.” (Jeremiah 31:23-25, NKJV)

No, that has not been fulfilled. God did not just return Judah from captivity. And Israel is not well spoken of by much of the world as most condemn the US policy change on Judea/Samaria as did Pope Francis (see Pope Francis opposes certain Jewish settlements, suggests US actions will not bring peace, and pushes for international involvement). Furthermore, consider the context as it should be clear to all that God has not replenished/satiated every weary/sorrowful/pining soul there.

Various ones have attempted to point to US President Donald Trump as fulfilling various biblical prophecies that he simply has not fulfilled, while overlooking ones he actually was helping to fulfill.

Strip Clubs, Casinos, and Political Positions

Throughout his business career, Donald Trump has built casinos and owns strip clubs (consider Gambling and Sin: Is it a Sin for Christians to Gamble?). That is not something a real Christian businessman would be doing.

Consider also that his current wife is a former model, who, let’s say, did not always practice biblical standards of modesty (cf. 1 Timothy 2:9) from what I read about her (consider also Pornography: A scourge on society).

Notice also the following:

John Stemberger, president of Florida Family Action, said in a statement Monday. “Trump is a thrice married owner of casinos with strip clubs and would give us the first ‘First Lady’ who has proudly posed in the nude while supporting gay marriage and funding Planned Parenthood with taxpayer money.”

You may think that none of that affects you if you live in the USA, but consider the following:

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man — and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. (Romans 1:18-32)

Donald Trump professes to be wise, but approve of sexual immortality and other sins that God says lead to death. This does not bode well for the USA.

At his “Make America Great Again” website, when I clicked on Donald Trump’s  “Positions,” there were the following five in February 2016:

  1. US-China Trade Reform
  2. Veteran’s Affairs Reform
  3. Tax Reform
  4. Second Amendment Rights
  5. Immigration Reform

His focus is on safety, security aliens, foreign trade, impacting Wall Street, and various other economic issues. His position papers had nothing about issues like abortion or stopping the homosexual agenda. Without national repentance the USA is doomed.

Donald Trump has also made a variety of public statements, in his campaign and afterwards, which many have shown are not factually accurate.

Donald Trump’s direct, but often bombastic style, however, appeals to many who are concerned about their safety and/or economic state. He says he is a man of action as he has repeatedly blasted former US President Barack Obama and others for not taking what he feels are appropriate actions against Islamic terrorism, North Korea, Iran, etc.

One of Donald Trump's key campaign promises was to build a wall to reduce illegal immigration.

While it would help some with illegal immigration from the southern USA border, a wall will not protect the USA. Actually, the Bible prophesies that the time will come when the walls will be overcome:

47 “Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joy and gladness of heart, for the abundance of everything, 48 therefore you shall serve your enemies, whom the Lord will send against you, in hunger, in thirst, in nakedness, and in need of everything; and He will put a yoke of iron on your neck until He has destroyed you. 49 The Lord will bring a nation against you from afar, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flies, a nation whose language you will not understand, 50 a nation of fierce countenance, which does not respect the elderly nor show favor to the young. 51 And they shall eat the increase of your livestock and the produce of your land, until you are destroyed; they shall not leave you grain or new wine or oil, or the increase of your cattle or the offspring of your flocks, until they have destroyed you.

52 “They shall besiege you at all your gates until your high and fortified walls, in which you trust, come down throughout all your land; and they shall besiege you at all your gates throughout all your land which the Lord your God has given you. 53 You shall eat the fruit of your own body, the flesh of your sons and your daughters whom the Lord your God has given you, in the siege and desperate straits in which your enemy shall distress you. (Deuteronomy 28:47-54)

For decades I have believed that Mexico would likely be part of a force that would takeover the USA. Not that Mexico would do this on its own, but that it would in conjunction with a coordinated attack by the Europeans on the USA–an attack that the Bible says will be successful and eliminate the USA (Daniel 11:39; USA in Prophecy: The Strongest Fortresses). Donald Trump's partial wall will not stop that.

The USA needs national repentance and Donald Trump apparently does not believe that. This does not bode well for the USA.

Despite what many think, people often will go for a ‘strongman’ in times of crisis. Donald Trump likes to think of himself that way.

Notice also that the Bible teaches:

19 Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. (Romans 12:19)

Donald Trump’s willingness to lash out at others is well known. His supporters sometimes call it counter-punching. His trustworthiness is limited. Bearing false witness is a violation of one of the Ten Commandments (see also the free online booklet: The Ten Commandments: The Decalogue, Christianity, and the Beast).

Europeans Have Been Very Concerned

In early 2016, I wrote, "Should he actually become President of the United States, his flamboyance and brashness are bound to offend the Europeans, even more than he already has, and ultimately that will not turn out well for the USA (cf. Lamentations 1:1-2; Daniel 11:39)."

Even when the Europeans saw his rise during the primaries, they had concerns.

In December 2015, former German Defense Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg called Donald Trump "that blonde lunatic named Donald" (Wish List or Reality? Digital Trends in 2016 | Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg | hub conference. Posted December 11, 2015; watch also Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg and Europe's Future).

Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, former German Defense Minister, warns of an erosion in transatlantic trust, exacerbated by the U.S. presidential-election season. The campaign anthem will be “forget Europe,” he says—and it won’t come only from Donald Trump. …

There is growing division between U.S. and European leaders. Transatlantic ties depend on common values.

BBC reported:

Europe hates Trump. Does it matter?

March 4, 2016

Back in 2004 Europeans assumed that their own well publicised opposition to President Bush’s Iraq war would make it harder for him to get re-elected. In fact, anti Americanism had the opposite effect. It drove people to the president. “If those squishy Europeans hate him so much,” the thinking seemed to go, “then he must be doing something right.”

That same year, Britain’s left-leaning Guardian newspaper ran a public campaign targeting a critical county in Ohio with a letter-writing blitz, urging people there to vote for John Kerry.

It was a bid to give foreigners a say in the US presidential election. Clark County was a swing district in a swing state, in 2000 Al Gore won the area by a narrow margin. But the Guardian’s Operation Clark County backfired. It did indeed galvanise local voters, but it did so for Bush not Kerry. On election night, George Bush carried the county with 51% of the vote.

At the time, a local newspaper editor told the BBC that it was the well-publicised letter campaign which lost it for the Democrats. It will go down in history as one of the biggest fiascos in foreign meddling. …

Germany’s Der Spiegel has called Trump the most dangerous man in the world. Britain’s David Cameron says his plan to ban Muslims is divisive and unhelpful.

The French liberal newspaper Liberation has described him as a nightmare turned reality. JK Rowling tweeted that he’s worse than Voldemort. A recent Economist cover has a picture of Trump dressed as Uncle Sam with just one word, “Really?” That pretty much sums up the mood of global elites.

Will the international reaction make a shred of difference to Trump’s chances of getting nominated and then elected? 2004 would suggest not. Indeed you can easily imagine a scenario in which Trump’s American supporters rally round their candidate even more closely because the world is against him, just as they did with President Bush.

If you like Trump, you’re likely to shrug off French disdain – who cares what a bunch of cheese-eating surrender monkeys think? And if you don’t like Trump, you’re likely to see the criticism as a source of embarrassment – God, what does the world think of us?

BBC’s article also showed a photograph of an anti-Donald Trump carnival float in Germany that said “MAKE FASCISM GREAT AGAIN!”

Consider also the following:

March 21, 2016

Donald Trump said Monday the U.S. should rethink its involvement in NATO because the defense alliance costs too much money.

In remarks to Blitzer, he said the U.S. pays a disproportionate amount to NATO to ensure the security of allies.

"Frankly, they have to put up more money," he said. "We are paying disproportionately. It's too much, and frankly it's a different world than it was when we originally conceived of the idea." ...

Later in the interview, Trump qualified his remarks saying that the U.S. should not "decrease its role" in NATO but should decrease its spending. Still, the Republican presidential front-runner's NATO comments could spur anxiety among the Western foreign policy establishment.

Donald Trump wants NATO with the Europeans providing more military funding. Consider the following:

According to NATO statistics, the U.S. spent an estimated $650 billion on defense last year. That's more than double the amount all the other 27 NATO countries spent between them, even though their combined GDP tops that of the U.S. (Kottasova I. CNN, July 8, 2016

While Donald Trump is correct that the USA is spending "disproportionately, " especially considering that the total size of the economies of the 27 other NATO nations exceeds that of the USA, the reality is that the USA has been able to control NATO and many military decisions because of that. This will evenetually change after the Europeans spend more themselves.

The Washington Post has suggested that German issues and Donald Trump's rise may result in a similar leader in Germany (Noack R. Germany's shrinking middle class may spawn a new Donald Trump. Washington Post, May 11, 2016).

EU Parliament President

'Trump Is a Problem for the Whole World'

With Europe falling ever-deeper into crisis, European Parliament President Martin Schulz is warning of the further advance of right-wing populism. In an interview, he also says he fears the possibility of a President Trump. ...

SPIEGEL ONLINE: It's not only in Europe that right-wing populists like the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party are on the rise. In the United States, a right-wing populist could even become president. What would it mean for the EU if Donald Trump landed in the White House?

Schulz: Trump is not just a problem for the EU, but for the whole world. When a man ends up in the White House who boasts about not having a clue and who says that specialist knowledge is elite nonsense, then a critical point has been reached. Then you will have an obviously irresponsible man sitting in a position that requires the utmost degree of responsibility. My worry is that he may inspire copycats, also in Europe. That's why I hope Hillary Clinton wins.

There was never this much high level German resistance to a US presidential candidate before.

Here is something else regarding NATO:

December 28, 2017

During his first year in office, President Trump used NATO as a punching bag. He portrayed the members of the American-led security alliance in Europe as deadbeats freeloading on U.S. defense spending. It took until Trump's second trip to Europe last July for him to reaffirm America's commitment to defend fellow members if they come under attack. ...

LANGFITT: But Valášek, who runs Carnegie Europe, a Brussels think tank, says there's still a big question - how will President Trump respond if an ally's attacked?

VALÁŠEK: The honest answer is none of us quite knows. The president is not - you know, his heart is not into alliance. He has a zero-sum view of the world. He believes in no permanent friendships, no permanent allies. You know, that's not the sort of mindset that prepares him well for sort of standing by the side of an ally in case of a crisis.

This is concerning Europe. The Germans will take steps to ultimately be able to rise above the USA!

European Military?

I have been saying for since 2015 that Donald Trump's rise would encourage the Europeans to arm. Thst has began to happen.

Notice the following:

November 13, 2016

Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has warned US President-elect Donald Trump that “going it alone” is not an option for Europe or the United States.

He said the West faced its greatest security challenge in a generation.

During his election campaign, Mr Trump described Western military alliance Nato as obsolete.

He suggested that the US would think twice about coming to the aid of any Nato ally under attack if it had not paid its dues.

Writing in Britain’s Observer newspaper, Mr Stoltenberg conceded that Mr Trump had a point about the need for some members to make a bigger financial contribution, as the US currently accounted for almost 70% of Nato spending.

But he added that American leaders had always recognised that they had a profound strategic interest in a stable and secure Europe.

“It is all too easy to take the freedoms, security and prosperity we enjoy for granted. In these uncertain times we need strong American leadership, and we need Europeans to shoulder their fair share of the burden,” the former Norwegian prime minister wrote.

“Going it alone is not an option, either for Europe or for the United States. We face the greatest challenges to our security in a generation. This is no time to question the value of the partnership between Europe and the United States.”

So, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg wanred Donald Trump. NATO leaders do not normally publicly warn US Presidents.

Donald Trump has complained that many nations in NATO are not spending as much as they said they indicated that they would. On the surface, it may seem reasonable that if a nation in the NATO alliance is in violation of their military spending agreements, essentially be considered in default of their NATO ‘contract,’ and thus not receive ‘benefits’ from that contract.

Yet realize that once nations in Europe begin to spend more on their militaries, they will want more control and have more military power. This will have consequences that it does not seem that Donald Trunp has considered.

While all realize that World War I and World War II mainly involved war from a major power in Europe (there were also wars in Asia and Africa), some fail to realize that it will be the same for what I have called World War III (see World War III: Steps in Progress).

The Bible tells of a warring, King of the North, power that will arise in Europe and surprise the world:

3 And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. 4 So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” (Revelation 13:3-4)

Since Donald Trump's election, the European Commission made proposals moving towards a European army:

30 November 2016

The prospect of Brexit and Trump has spurred the EU into action on the military front …

The Commission proposal comes amid wider plans to create an EU “defence union” in response to Brexit and to the election of Donald Trump, a Nato-sceptic, in the US.

France, Germany, Italy and Spain have said the European public wanted the EU to play a larger role in the security arena in reaction to Britain’s decision to leave the bloc and to the migration crisis.

Earlier this month, EU states agreed to create a new military command HQ in the EU foreign service and joint rapid-reaction forces that could be sent into action in African or Middle Eastern states.

November 30, 2016

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – The European Union will … send a message to U.S. President-elect Donald Trump that Europe wants to pay for its own security.

Newsletter 2016/11/29 – Shock as Opportunity

BERLIN (Own report) – Thanks to Donald Trump’s electoral victory,
Berlin sees its opportunities for pushing for the creation of EU
military structures and possibly European nuclear armed forces
growing. Wolfgang Ischinger, the influential diplomat and Chairman of
the Munich Security Conference, is “hoping” that the “Trump shock” has
“dramatically increased” the willingness to militarize the European
Union. Last week, the European Parliament adopted a resolution that
includes setting up an EU Operational Headquarters, establishing a
“political leadership” for EU military operations, and raising the
military budgets of all member states to at least 2% of their GDP. EU
High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security, Federica
Mogherini, continues to promote the idea of an “EU superpower.”
Leading politicians and commentators are beginning to pick up the
idea, previously launched by a number of experts, of the EU developing
its own nuclear military forces on the basis of French and British
nuclear weapons. However, for this, the French and British arsenals
would be insufficient, according to a suggestive article published in
one of Germany’s leading opinion-forming dailies.

The making of a European Defence Union

12 December 2017

The decision to establish the Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO) and plans presented by 25 European Union member states to work together on a first set of 17 collaborative defence projects has been welcomed by the European Commission.

“In June I said it was time to wake up the Sleeping Beauty of the Lisbon Treaty: permanent structured cooperation,” said European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker. “Six months later, it is happening.”

Juncker said Europe cannot and should not outsource our security and defence.

“The European Defence Fund that the European Commission proposed will complement these efforts and act as a further incentive for defence cooperation – including potential funding for some of the projects presented today,” he added.

According to a European Commission press release, PESCO is an instrument in the EU Treaty to enable willing member states to pursue greater cooperation in defence and security.

On November 13, there were 23 member states (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Spain and Sweden) that took a first step towards launching the Permanent Structured Cooperation on defence. Since then, Ireland and Portugal have also joined, bringing the total number of participating countries to 25.

I have warned for some time that the rise and/or election of Donald Trump would trigger the desire for a European army and additional European unity, as would the Brexit vote.

Notice two items I posted here before the Brexit vote:

The departure of the UK from the EU has been called a Brixit or Brexit, meaning a British exit. As far as the UK’s role in the future, as I have written many times before, the UK will not remain a major power in the final European configuration. … The Bible shows that a couple of reorganizations will take place in Europe in Revelation 17:12-13) and this will result in a type of strong leader that many in Europe seem to crave. (Thiel B. EU leaders keeping low profile on Brexit vote. COGwriter, June 6, 2016)

Does the European leadership think they need their own military, one that will ultimately not be dependent upon the USA?


Are they now trying to take steps to make this happen?


Will a vote in the UK for it to exit from the European Union stop this from happening?


The Bible prophesies that the final European King of the North Beast power will destroy the USA and its Anglo-Saxon descended allies, including Canada, and UK:

39 Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain (Daniel 11:39).

The ‘he’ is the final European King of the North Beast. And the strongest fortresses in the world belong to the USA and to a much lessor extent, its English-speaking allies (for a more detailed explanation of why the USA and its Anglo-allies are involved, as well as the dividing of their lands, please see Anglo – America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel). Some would call this attack World War III (WWIII).

Daniel 11:24-25 seems to parallel this as it teaches that the King of the North has plans against the strongholds and succeeds against the prosperous:

24 He shall enter peaceably, even into the richest places of the province; and he shall do what his fathers have not done, nor his forefathers: he shall disperse among them the plunder, spoil, and riches; and he shall devise his plans against the strongholds, but only for a time.

25 “He shall stir up his power and his courage against the king of the South with a great army. (Daniel 11:24-25)

Notice that the ‘he,’the European power, will first seem peaceful, but will have a great army! And the Europeans have a secret plan for the start of one! (Thiel B. EU’s post UK secret army plan. COGwriter, May 28, 2016)

Consider also something posted one day BEFORE the US election in 2016:

If Donald Trump is elected, the Germans will see this as proof that they cannot rely on the USA for their defense, etc. Germany will push for a European army. Some in Europe actually want Donald Trump to win for this basic reason (see ‘Why Europe Secretly Roots For Donald Trump’?). (Thiel B. Germans opposed to Donald Trump, but not too optimistic about Hillary Clinton. COGwriter, November 7, 2016)

The Bible shows that Europe will have a great army (Daniel 11:25). Because of Brexit and Donald Trump, the European Commission has now taken more steps towards one.

The Europeans will take more steps to separate themselves from the USA. This does not mean that NATO must be abandoned, but I have felt for decades that the Europeans would attack the USA deceptively under the guise of a NATO exercise, and probably will have ground assistance from Mexico, a nation that Donald Trump has repeatedly offended during his campaign.

It does matter that Europe hates Donald Trump.  Since his election, the Europeans have intensified their desire to arm themselves. The time will come when Europe will turn to a ‘strongman’ of its own (cf. Revelation 17:12-13; see also Must the Ten Kings of Revelation 17:12 Rule over Ten Currently Existing Nations?) I have also long written that I believe that trade conflict could be the trigger for the start of WWIII. Donald Trump has repeatedly said he would negotiate better trade deals for the USA.  He has greatly offended the Europeans.

The Bible tells of a military power that will have vast economic power that will rise up in Europe and cause many to prosper (Revelation 18).  Many in Europe in general, and Germany in particular, are working towards that goal, despite biblical warnings of being part of it (e.g. Revelation 18:4).

Clearly, many in Europe have issues with Donald Trump.

Now, I want to answer the question that BBC’searlier headline asked: Europe hates Trump. Does it matter?

Yes, it matters, but not the way that Europeans are publicly hoping it will.

The Bible tells of a warring, King of the North, power that will arise in Europe and surprise the world:

3 And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. 4 So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” (Revelation 13:3-4)

Look for Donald Trump to offend the Europeans and encourage them to arm. This will not end well for the USA. Notice more about the King of the North:

36 "Then the king shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done. 37 He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all. 38 But in their place he shall honor a god of fortresses; and a god which his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and pleasant things. 39 Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain.(Daniel 11:36-39)

Consider that the USA is the power in the 21st century that has the 'strongest fortresses' (see also USA in Prophecy: The Strongest Fortresses).

Donald Trump has offended many Europeans. The Europeans are already offended by his election and will take more steps to separate themselves from the USA. This does not mean that NATO must be abandoned, but I have felt for decades that the Europeans would attack the USA under the guise of a NATO exercise, and probably will have ground assistance from Mexico, a nation that Donald Trump has repeatedly offended during his campaign as well as when he was in office.

It does matter that Europe hates Donald Trump. Since he became president, Europeans took steps to arm themselves. The time will come when Europe will turn to a ‘strongman’ of its own (cf. Revelation 17:12-13; see also Must the Ten Kings of Revelation 17:12 Rule over Ten Currently Existing Nations?) I have also long written that I believe that trade conflict could be the trigger for the start of WWIII. Donald Trump repeatedly said he would negotiate better trade deals for the USA. Expect him to further offend the Europeans.

European Views After Donald Trump Became President

Now that Donald Trump is the President of the United States, Europeans believe that Europe must change.

Notice the following:

20 January 2017

As expected of their profession, EU's foreign ministers expressed themselves more diplomatically, but all in all, it was clear again this week that after Donald Trump's inauguration as 45th president of the USA, Europe can no longer rely on Washington.

The EU must stabilize itself

What do you do when your closest partner just disappears on you? You do what the EU should have done long ago: you fix up your home, regardless of what "The Donald" is doing in the USA. ...

Two areas have now become an absolute priority: defense and the economy.

EU must do more for its own defense ...

It is true, however, that now, with more urgency than ever, Europeans have been reminded of what they have neglected for decades. Now Europe really has to end its full reliance on the USA and do more for its own defense. Everything must now be put on the table - from higher military spending to a British-French nuclear defense shield for the continent.

The potentially disastrous economic effects of President Trump's policies are much more upsetting. ...

If the fears of Donald Trump's conduct makes Europeans show more cohesion and determination, then the US president may have done something good.

21 January 2017

That was no presidential speech; that was a veritable declaration of war. Threatening in tone. Cold and calculating in logic. Change minus the hope. Donald Trump used the traditional Inauguration Day address to settle a score with the U.S. political establishment going back decades. ... America is now on the brink of a new period of polarization. The demons in this fraternal battle have been unchained. The greatness that Trump seeks will not be borne under these conditions. An icy wind is blowing across the land. (Steingart G. Morning Brief. Handelsblatt Global, January 21, 2017

(The last item was by Gabor Steingart, editor in chief of Handelsblatt, Germany's leading economic newspaper.)

The Bible WARNS against that type of European unity (Revelation 13:1-10; 17:12-14) and shows that Europe will destroy the USA (Daniel 11:39) and have a "great army." Europe sees Donald Trump as a motivator to work towards those goals.

Notice also the following:

19 May 2017

Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States. He does not possess the requisite intellect and does not understand the significance of the office he holds nor the tasks associated with it. He doesn't read. He doesn't bother to peruse important files and intelligence reports and knows little about the issues that he has identified as his priorities. His decisions are capricious and they are delivered in the form of tyrannical decrees.

He is a man free of morals. As has been demonstrated hundreds of times, he is a liar, a racist and a cheat. I feel ashamed to use these words, as sharp and loud as they are. But if they apply to anyone, they apply to Trump. ...

The U.S. elected a laughing stock to the presidency and has now made itself dependent on a joke of a man. The country is, as David Brooks wrote recently in the New York Times, dependent on a child. The Trump administration has no foreign policy because Trump has consistently promised American withdrawal while invoking America's strength. He has promised both no wars and more wars. He makes decisions according to his mood, with no strategic coherence or tactical logic. Moscow and Beijing are laughing at America. Elsewhere, people are worried.

In the Pacific, warships - American and Chinese - circle each other in close proximity. The conflict with North Korea is escalating. Who can be certain that Donald Trump won't risk nuclear war simply to save his own skin? Efforts to stop climate change are in trouble and many expect the U.S. to withdraw from the Paris Agreement because Trump is wary of legally binding measures. Crises, including those in Syria and Libya, are escalating, but no longer being discussed. And who should they be discussed with? Phone calls and emails to the U.S. State Department go unanswered. Nothing is regulated, nothing is stable and the trans-Atlantic relationship hardly exists anymore. German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel and Bundestag Foreign Affairs Committee Chair Norbert Röttgen fly back and forth, but Germany and the U.S. no longer understand each other. Hardly any real communication takes place, there are no joint foreign policy goals and there is no strategy.

Merkel warns US, Britain no longer reliable partners

28 May 2017

Europe "must take its fate into its own hands" faced with a western alliance divided by Brexit and Donald Trump's presidency, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Sunday.

"The times in which we could completely depend on others are on the way out. I've experienced that in the last few days," Merkel told a crowd at an election rally in Munich, southern Germany.

"We Europeans truly have to take our fate into our own hands," she added.

While Germany and Europe would strive to remain on good terms with America and Britain, "we have to fight for our own destiny", Merkel went on.

Special emphasis was needed on warm relations between Berlin and newly-elected French President Emmanuel Macron, she said.

The world is concerned about Donald Trump and this is especially true of leaders in Europe.

He and the Brexit vote are turning the Europeans to unify more among themselves and against the USA and UK. My book on Donald Trump (which came out before he took office) stated:

Donald Trump’s rise has also spurred the Europeans to further unify among themselves, especially when combined with the Brexit vote that Donald Trump encouraged.

This is the case.

Consider the G20 meeting in Hanburg in July 2017.

The German press reported the following related to the G20 and side meetings:

8 July 2017

16:17 Regarding her negotiations with President Trump, Chancellor Merkel said they had achieved good results on some issues but some areas, such as trade, remain difficult.

16:10 “The declaration points out clearly what the US wants and what other G20 nations stand for regarding the climate change deal. It is not a common position,” Merkel told the press conference.

“I think it’s very clear that we could not reach consensus, but the differences were not papered over, they were clearly stated,” Merkel told reporters at the end of the two-day meeting. …

1436: In spite of Trump’s opposition to the Paris Agreement, the G20 communique called for the rapid implementation of the climate accord, according to the DPA news agency.

“We reaffirm our strong commitment to the Paris Agreement, moving swiftly towards its full implementation,” the DPA quotes the G20’s final text as saying.

The statement says the climate agreement, which has been one of the most divisive issues at the two-day summit in Hamburg, is “irreversible.”

The statement also says the US “will endeavour to work closely with other countries to help them access and use fossil fuels more cleanly and efficiently and help deploy renewable and other clean energy sources, given the importance of energy access and security in their nationally determined contributions,” the sources said. …

9:43 While meeting UK Prime Minister Theresa May, Donald Trump says the countries are working on a “very, very big deal, a very powerful deal” on trade between the two countries.

9:39 US President Donald Trump described his first-ever meeting with Vladimir Putin yesterday as “tremendous.”

9:29 A EU official says that all G20 members agree on statement on trade and commit to fighting protectionism.

9:17 Hamburg police say 213 officers have been injured in the violence.

It is certain that those in the European Union were NOT pleased that the USA and UK were working on what Donald Trump has called a “very, very big deal, a very powerful deal.” The EU does not want the UK to be able to negotiate trade matters with other countries until after it leaves the EU–which has now happened

The firm position of US President Trump to not go along with the Paris accords remains an area of division between the USA and most of the remaining nations of the world. Earlier this year, the USA was referred to as a “rogue nation” for that (watch also The USA Declared a ‘Rogue Nation’!). Today, Angela Merkel deplored the official US position on this:

July 8, 2017

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Saturday spoke out against the Trump administration’s intentions to drop out of the Paris Agreement on climate change.

In the final press conference of the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, Merkel said the decision to leave the climate accord would be “irreversible.”

“You are familiar with the American position. You know that, unfortunately — and I deplore this — the United States of America left the climate agreement, or rather announced their intention to do so,” she said on the final day of the summit.

Climate and trade matters are moving more of the world away from the USA.

Japan, China, Mexico and Europe have had trade concerns about the USA because of Donald Trump. Japan and Europe announced a deal at the beginning of the G20 (see ‘Japan unites with Europe to send Trump a message’). Germany worked to make deals with Mexico and Argentina prior to the G20 (see Germany’s Merkel is in Argentina making deals with Mexico and Argentina). Plus Europe and China have worked on trade (e.g. see After Trump’s executive order, TPP-related nations start to look to China).

The US press reported the following:

Trump leaves leaders fearing the future as G-20 summit closes

July 8, 2017

HAMBURG — President Trump and other world leaders on Saturday emerged from two days of talks unable to resolve key differences on core issues such as climate change and globalization, slapping an exclamation point on a divisive summit that left other nations fearing for the future of global alliances in the Trump era.

The scale of disharmony was remarkable for the annual Group of 20 meeting of world economic powers, a venue better known for sleepy bromides about easy-to-agree issues. Even as negotiators made a good-faith effort to bargain toward consensus, European leaders said that a chasm has opened between the United States and the rest of the world. …

Perhaps as a way to emphasize global unity — minus the United States — Macron announced there would be another climate summit in Paris in December to mark the two-year anniversary of the climate accord. …

One official said that Europeans were sharply unsettled by their encounters with Trump — and they recognized that may be the intention of the White House.

“It seems clear that President Trump is committed to being less predictable and not necessarily seeing predictability as positive in foreign policy,” said the European official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to candidly assess the White House. …

On Twitter, Trump called the summit a “wonderful success” that was “carried out beautifully” by Merkel. He also said he had “an excellent meeting on trade & North Korea” with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

The G20 was not a major success for the USA.

There is a cost to trade wars and tariffs. There is also a cost to many forms of international posturing. Those who think otherwise are fooling themselves.

We are seeing more in the world that want to turn further away from the USA.

Pope Francis made some comments related to his views and the G20:

8 July 2017

Pope Francis warned leaders of the world’s top 20 economies meeting in Hamburg against forming dangerous and distorting alliances that could harm the poor and migrants, in an article in Italian daily la Repubblica on Saturday.

“The G20 worries me, it hits migrants in countries in half of the world and it hits them even more as time goes by,” the Pope was quoted as saying in a conversation with the paper’s founder Eugenio Scalfari.

Francis, the first non-European pope in 1,300 years, said he was afraid of “very dangerous alliances among (foreign) powers that have a distorted vision of the world: America and Russia, China and North Korea, (Vladimir) Putin and (Bashar al-)Assad in the war in Syria.” …

Pope Francis was also quoted as saying Europe should adopt a federal structure as soon as possible or “it won’t count for anything in the world”

So, Pope Francis seems to be saying that the USA has a distorted vision of the world and that a united Europe is what is needed.

Massive shifts are beginning to take place.

The G20 proves it. Because of Donald Trump, the world no longer looks to America for leadership

July 9, 2017

Until recently, the world looked to the US for leadership at such international forums. But in the six months since Trump entered the White House, that has all changed.

Now, on issues ranging from trade to climate change, on how to deal with problems such as Ukraine, the US has turned its back on the considered consensus. Even on subjects such as Article Five of Nato’s charter - the part that relates to mutual defence - Trump looks nothing less than wobbly.

The headlines at the end of the G20 were bad enough. The US was utterly alone on the issue of climate change, where the 19 other members agreed to push ahead with the Paris Accord to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and the US refused. The US’s position was noted in the official communiqué issued at the conclusion of the meeting.

“Wherever there is no consensus that can be achieved, disagreement has to be made clear,” said Angela Merkel, the German host, not hiding her disappointment. “Unfortunately, and I deplore this, the United States of America left the climate agreement.”

On trade, language was reinserted to commit the members to condemn protectionism, something that had been done after Trump had raised the prospects of tariffs, especially for steel. ...

“The two major issues for the meeting were trade and climate change. It was recognised the US was not going to change its position,” Thomas Bernes of Ontario’s Centre for International Governance and a former IMF official, told The Independent, speaking from Hamburg.

“[The countries] will not be looking to the US for leadership - they will be looking to Trudeau, Macron and Merkel. From everyone, I’ve been speaking to, they don’t think this is going to change.”

David Gergen: For the first time, US president is 'no longer regarded as world leader'

July 9, 2017

Veteran political insider David Gergen appears to have offered some conflicting views on Friday about President Trump's performance at the G20 summit in Germany.

The former White House adviser, who has served under both Republican and Democratic administrations, initially appeared on a CNN panel calling Trump "presidential."

Gergen focused on the apparent successes stemming from Trump's meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin including confronting the issue of election hacking, discussing future cyberattacks, and possibly working together on Syria.

He then said, "This was presidential. This was big league stuff."

But hours later, the Harvard professor reappeared on CNN, saying that "this is the first time I've seen a president come to a G20 meeting in which he's no longer regarded as the leader, no longer regarded as the world leader."

Gergen followed up the comment by saying, "Europe is going its own separate way. Japan just signed this big trade agreement with Europe. That is troubling."

To any who pay attention to Bible prophecy, it should be troubling that, as David Gergen put it, "Europe is going its own separate way."

It is going its own separate way on many fronts, including on military matters.

Notice the following:

July 6, 2017

Some European leaders are apparently coming around to the idea of spending more on defense. ...

Last month, Europe's chief executive appealed to EU governments to create a military alliance to better defend itself and enhance its power abroad.

Just days after unveiling a multi-billion euro plan to help fund European defense research, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker told a conference in Prague that EU members needed to better integrate their military assets and defense industries.

"I see the tide turning," Juncker said, citing growing support in EU capitals for wider military cooperation.

"NATO can no longer be used as a convenient alibi to argue against greater European efforts," he said, adding that the U.S. is "no longer interested in guaranteeing Europe's security in our place."

Well, the 2017 G20 meeting made it clear to many that Europe and the USA are separating further. This turning of the tide is not turning back.

Oh yes, at times it may look like the USA and Europeans are getting closer together. But with Donald Trump as the US president and the UK moving on Brexit, the Europeans have concluded that they need to take more world leadership, and that includes working towards strengthening their military abilities. The Bible shows that Europe will arise as a military power that will surprise the world (see Revelation 13:1-4).

Notice also the following:

October 27, 2017

BERLIN (Reuters) - Following Donald Trump’s decision to decertify the Iran nuclear deal this month, shaken European capitals are asking themselves what the U.S. president will do next.

Diplomats have sketched scenarios they fear could plunge transatlantic relations into crisis: a trade war, military conflict over North Korea, or the collapse of a Cold War-era arms treaty. They wonder if their post-war alliance can survive if any of them come true. ...

No longer is there an underlying confidence that Europe can muddle through three more years of Trump without fear of major, and possibly lasting, disruptions to the relationship. Nor is there faith that Trump, when the stakes are high, will listen to what his advisers and partners tell him.

The anxiety is especially acute in Germany ...

“There is a sense of desperation in Berlin, a sense that Trump does not know what is at stake, that he doesn’t understand the historical factors that are at play here,” said Wolfgang Ischinger, a former German ambassador to Washington and chairman of the Munich Security Conference. ...

Merkel alluded to the breakdown in trust back in May, when she said Europe might not be able to rely on the United States and must take its fate into its own hands.

That came after a contentious G7 meeting in Sicily at which Trump ignored pleas from allies to stick with another multilateral agreement, the Paris climate accord. ...

One senior European diplomat said the next conflict would likely be over trade, describing Trump’s attempt to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) -- and his threats to abandon it -- as a “litmus test”.

European firms, especially German carmakers who produce in Mexico and export to the United States, could be hit hard by a breakdown of NAFTA.

There are also fears that Trump could carry out a threat to introduce steel import tariffs, which would hit European exporters as well as the Chinese.

“So far there has been a lot of bark and no bite from Trump on trade, but that doesn’t mean it will stay that way,” said the European diplomat. “We have to be prepared for real protectionist measures. Any steps that penalize European firms directly or indirectly would create a downward spiral.” ...

“We have to wake up to the fact that we may be dealing with Trump for some time, and that there may not be a correction when he leaves,” one German diplomat told Reuters. ...

For generations of Germans, Ischinger says, the symbol of the transatlantic alliance has been U.S. presidents -- from John F. Kennedy to Reagan, and from Bill Clinton to Barack Obama.

“I can no longer tell my children that they are part of this alliance with Trump as president,” he said. “It is rather sad. I don’t know how the loss of this symbol can be replaced.

There is a real rift between Europe and the USA because of Donald Trump. What Europe will replace US leadership with is going to turn out bad (cf. Revelation 17:12-14).

US President Donald Trump’s politics became the greatest fear of Germans:

Donald Trump’s politics tops list of Germans’ greatest fears

6 September 2018

More than two-thirds of Germans — or 69 percent — are extremely concerned that US President Donald Trump’s policies are having a dangerous impact worldwide, according to the annual survey “The fears of Germans” by the R+V Infocenter.

“Trump’s ruthless ‘America First’ politics, his aggression with regards to international arrangements and his equally aggressive trade and security politics, even towards allied countries, scare the majority of the population,” said Manfred G. Schmidt, a professor at the Ruprecht-Karls-University in Heidelberg and a consultant for R+V Infocenter.

It was one of the highest ever percentages recorded in the survey, which has cataloged German fears since 1992.

So, in the 26 years of surveys, at least, nothing has been scarier to Germans than US President Donald Trump.

This does not bode well for USA-German relations.

Fear is a powerful motivator.

A real war, and not just a trade war, between Europe and the USA (with the UK basically on the USA’s side) will come as one day Europe will take steps to ‘eliminate the competition’ so to speak (cf. Daniel 8:25; 11:39; USA in Prophecy: The Strongest Fortresses).

Dutch Prophecy for Donald Trump?

Matt Barber wrote the following:

Dutch politician and historian Guillaume Groen van Prinsterer (1801-1876) is credited with what seems an eerily prescient foreshadowing of the bizarre phenomenon that is “Trump 2016.”

“Pent-up anger and long-held frustration due to economic stagnation, moral decay, spiritual impotency, and political corruption,” he opined, “invariably pave the way for the rise of crass manipulators. Instead of a mastery of truth, such revolutionary opportunists tap into fear and rage, ignorance and prejudice, staging great public spectacles of narcissism.”

It’s human nature. Such sense of hopelessness, anger, betrayal and frustration can lead otherwise good people (some of whom I respect and admire) to make very bad decisions – to exercise poor judgment.

It gave us Barack Obama in 2008.

And Donald Trump in 2016.

Indeed, we’ve moved seamlessly from “Hope” and “Change We Can Believe In,” to “Make America Great Again.” It’s as though van Prinsterer had a crystal ball through which to keep tabs on the Donald’s ivory Trump Tower office suite. ...

Moral decay, spiritual impotency, and political corruption? That’s America 2016 in toto. Since 1973 we’ve sacrificed nearly 60 million of our most innocent fellow citizens at Baal’s altar of convenience and “equality.” ...

  • Enter Donald Trump – a several-times-bankrupt, big-government globalist, pro-socialized medicine, pro-abortion, pro-“gay marriage,” lifelong liberal Democrat – to save the day. That is, at least, to peddle the right kind of snake oil and bark the right kind of empty “Make America Great Again” platitudes that festering wounds crave and itching ears want to hear.

  • “… invariably pave the way for the rise of crass manipulators.”

    Crass manipulator? No two words better describe Mr. Trump. Unless, of course, you consider it classy when a leading presidential candidate, an unrepentant serial adulterer, personally attacks his political opponents as “stupid liars,” sleazily suggesting that their wives are ugly (Heidi Cruz is a lovely woman both inside and out), brags about the size of his manhood from the debate stage, or habitually and unapologetically verbally abuses women – somebody’s wives, mothers and daughters – by calling them “pigs,” “ugly,” “fat” or “great pieces of a–.”

    Trump recently boasted that he’s “such a good Christian.” ... “Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God” (James 4:4). (Barber M. Was 'Trump 2016' prophesied centuries ago? World News Daily, March 25, 2016.

  • Well, certainly there is moral decline and corruption in the USA. And certainly Donald Trump has risen to be the choice for many, despite his own moral issues.

    Islamic Prophecy of Donald Trump?

    Some believe that Islamic prophecy foretold Donald Trump:

    Is Trump fulfilling Quranic prophecy?

    By | January 31, 2017

    (RNS) The 68th chapter of the Quran, aptly named “The Pen,” describes a person fitting President Donald Trump’s characteristics perfectly. In fact, one of the verses even seems to give his name.

    The Quran speaks of a man who is a “mean swearer, a backbiter, slanderer, forbidder of good, transgressor and sinful.” Trump’s statements going back decades, highlighted especially during the election campaign, seem to fit the bill and are on record for all to read.

    Having described his nasty character, the Quran further describes him as possessing “riches and many children.” What follows is a clear prophecy about him: “We will brand him on the trump.” ...

    That the verse speaks of “branding” him, signifying his becoming a byword in history, is remarkable, since The Donald has made his millions through promotion of his name-brand, the Trump logo, which is plastered across buildings, golf courses, universities, food and clothing. ...

    The individual described in the Quran did not meet a good end. The result of his cheap, mean-spirited ways was that God destroyed his garden overnight, and when he and his workers came to it in the morning they lamented: “nay we have been deprived of everything.”

    The only silver lining the Quran offers is that they, after witnessing the result of their evils, realized the error of their ways, reproached one another, turned to God and repented of their past injustices.

    Let us pray the nation wakes up before it is too late.

    (Tahir Nasser is a physician and a regular contributor and commentator in British media. Taha Nasser, his brother, is also a physician and student in Islamic eschatology)

    Whether or not he was prophesied in the Qu'ran, many associated with Islam have issues with Donald Trump.

    Boastful Lover of Money

    Regarding the end times, the Bible warns:

    1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! (2 Timothy 3:1-5)

    While many of the above apply to other politicians, the "lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud" (and many others) seem to apply to people like Donald Trump.

    The Bible says:

    18 Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall. (Proverbs 16:18)

    Donald Trump's pride will contribute to the downfall of the USA.

    Notice something that Donald Trump said in his Nevada victory speech the night of February 23, 2016:

    It’s hard for me to turn down money because that’s what I’ve done in my whole life, I grab and grab and grab. You know I get greedy I want money, money.

    I’ll tell you what we’re going to do, right? We get greedy right? Now we’re going to get greedy for the United States we’re going to grab and grab and grab. We’re going to bring in so much money and so much everything. We’re going to make America great again, folks, I’m telling you folks we’re going to make America great again. …

    You’re going to be proud of your president, and you’re going to be even prouder of your country, OK?

    Notice that Donald Trump was clearly stating he is a greedy lover of money and that he is clearly also trying to appeal to the pride, greed, and love of money of American voters. Pride goes before destruction, and destruction is coming to the USA (Daniel 11:39; Habakkuk 2:2-8; see also Anglo - America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel).

    Mother was from Scotland

    Donald Trump's mother was from Scotland. The BBC reported the following:

    In search of Donald Trump's Scottish roots

    March 9, 2016

    The US Republican presidential contender Donald Trump has German ancestry on his father's side - but his mother was Scottish. For BBC Newsnight, Stephen Smith went to the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides to find out more.

    Lewis is a windblown, God-fearing outcrop notable for its Gaelic heritage, its peat, and its jealously guarded sense of propriety.

    Trump's mother, Mary MacLeod, was born there in 1912, to Malcolm MacLeod, a fisherman, and his wife, also called Mary.

    Young Mary left the island at the age of 18 for a holiday in New York, where she met a local builder by the name of Trump - and the rest, as they say, is histrionics.

    While some journalists have been pursuing the juicy story of the property developer's German grandfather, who appears to have supplied hard liquor and showgirls to gold prospectors in the Wild West, I decided to concentrate on the more understated but deeply enigmatic narrative of his maternal line. ...

    Mary MacLeod was raised in the little village of Tong, among low-rise garrison-style homes "finished in pukey pebble-dash", as one Lewis writer puts it.

    Who was Donald Trump's mother?

    Perhaps, I should add that the Scotish descended from Isaac and that many Germans who came to the USA did as well. For more information, see the article Anglo - America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel.

    Did Nostradamus Predict Donald Trump?

    There are some who believe that Nostradamus predicted Donald Trump. Notice one report about that:

    Experts from the highly self-esteemed Nostradamus Postdiction Society released a statement arguing that one of Nostradamus' well known quatrains points to the rise of Trump.

    "This is amazing and only further proves to us what we already assumed to be true: that Nostradamus was indeed able to see centuries into the future," stated the society.

    "On many occasions, we have shown that Nostradamus has predicted the appearance of numerous disasters and dictators. Trump easily fits into both categories."

    To justify their claim, the society pointed to two specific pieces of evidence to prove beyond shadow of a doubt that Nostradamus warned the world about Trump.

    Item No. 1 was an illustration showing a burning tower. While long seen as proof that Nostradamus predicted 9/11, the Society was adamant that it could only be about Trump.

    "Think about it! The Donald owns something called Trump Towers. A tower! The picture is a tower. Nostradamus is all but shouting the name 'Trump' at us," continued the society.

    "And the fire emanating from the tower is clearly Nostradamus' way of warning us about the inflammatory rhetoric of Trump. Inflammatory rhetoric, owns a tower. It's so obvious!"

    The other evidence cited in the Postdiction Society's statement was a quatrain, which reads as follows:

    "Beasts ferocious with hunger will cross the rivers.
    The greater part of the battlefield will be against Hister.
    Into a cage of iron will the great one be drawn,
    When the child of Germany observes nothing."

    While other Nostradamus fans have long claimed that this quatrain had to do with Hitler, the society denounced such a notion as "obvious buffoonery" and "blatantly misguided." (Fields L. Nostradamus' Donald Trump Prediction Comes True. Christian Post, January 28, 2016.

    Now, I am familiar with both of the items from Nostradamus and many who claim he was accurate pointed to those predictions as related to the 9/11/2001 terrorist destruction of the twin towers in New York City and that Hister one to Adolf Hitler.

    There have been several scattered reports that Donald Trump is supposedly the “third antichrist” that the French seer Nostradamus prophesied. Here is one such report:

    Nostradamus Prophecy: The Third Antichrist

    Another prophecy by Nostradamus stated that the third Antichrist could rise in 2016. This rise could actually result in the beginning of World War 3 – a nuclear war or biological warfare that really sustain for 27 years. 11/10/16

    Nostradamus Predictions 2016: Donald Trump to Cause Apocalypse Through Disastrous Wars?

    It is further theorized that Donald Trump is the “third antichrist” predicted by Nostradamus after Napoleon and Hitler. On the writings, it was stated that the third antichrist will cause the apocalypse.

    The publication of the Nostradamus prediction 2016 stirred concerns in different social media. Many are getting terrified of the impending war that everyone is dreading may come.

    Here is the actual prophecy by Nostradamus, related to the alleged “third antichrist,” followed by what most others claim is the normal translation of it:

    VIII 77

    L’antechrist trois bien tost annichilez,
    Vingt & sept ans sang durera sa guerre,
    Les heretiques morts, captifs exilez,
    Son corps humain eau rougie gresler terre.

    The antichrist very soon annihilates the three,
    twenty-seven years his war will last.
    The unbelievers are dead, captive, exiled;
    with blood, human bodies, water and red hail covering the earth.

    Some disagree with that translation and claim that Nostradamus predicted three “antichrists.” Here is one such alternative translation:

    The third Antichrist, the third to come, gets annihilated,
    His war shall last for twenty seven years,
    The heretics are all dead; all of the prisoners are now exiled,
    His body (the Antichrist) has reddened the waters, and the earth has been scorched.

    Irrespective of what Nostradamus may have intended, the reality is that Donald Trump was NOT going to be waging wars for 27 years nor will the final Antichrist wage war for 27 years.

    Furthermore, contrary to the views of some, World War III is not going to start prior to 2026 (see also World War III: Steps in Progress).

    Related to WWIII, notice something that candidtate Donald Trump said:

    Repeating his promise to end Russia's war in Ukraine in "24 hours," former President Donald Trump said he is the only one who can keep America out of World War III.

    "Standing before you today, I am the only candidate that can prevent World War III," Trump said in a campaign speech in Davenport, Iowa, on Monday night. "I believe you're going to have it."

    If Donald Trump gets in, while he may help negotiate a deal involving Russia, no, he will not prevent WWIII. WWIII involves the Europeans leading an attack against the USA--Donald Trump, if re-elected, will contribute to that taking place.

    Now there are some interesting writings from Nostradamus that some believe are related to Donald Trump. Notice one:

    Century 1:40

    The false trumpet concealing madness will cause Byzantium to change its laws. From Egypt there will go forth a man who wants the edict withdrawn, changing money and standards. (Michel de Nostredame. The Complete Prophecies of Nostradamus., 2015. pp. 38-39)

    Notice how some have interpreted the above:

    Theorists believe that the “False trumpet concealing madness” is Trump and that the reference to Byzantium – an Ancient Greek colony – could be linked to the influx of refugees coming through Greece. (Maloney A. ‘THE GREAT SHAMELESS, AUDACIOUS BAWLER’ Donald Trump’s victory was predicted by Nostradamus who said it would bring about the end of the world, say conspiracy theorists. The Sun, November 11, 2016)

    But perhaps a better interpretation, if relating this to Donald Trump, would be that Donald Trump intends to change international arrangements and trade deals and will withdraw from the Paris climate change agreement--and Donald Trump did so after I wrote this in 2016 (see Thiel B. Is Donald Trump the ‘third Antichrist’ or not the final Antichrist at all? COGwriter, November 21, 2016).

    That being said, no, Donald Trump, though antichrist in various ways, will NOT be the final Antichrist (for scriptural reasons why, check out Some Doctrines of Antichrist).

    Anyway, the most specific prediction I have seen that I believe points to Donald Trump comes from 2 Timothy 3:1-4, from the Bible, which was quoted earlier.

    Donald Trump and the Bible on the Permanence of the US Military

    US President Donald Trump made some ‘tweets’ out of Twitter about the power of the USA:

    August 9, 2017

    With the threat of a nuclear armed North Korea looming over the Pacific, President Donald Trump on Wednesday claimed to have made the U.S. nuclear arsenal “far stronger and more powerful than ever before” during his first few months in office.

    “My first order as President was to renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal. It is now far stronger and more powerful than ever before,” Trump wrote in a pair of posts to Twitter. “Hopefully we will never have to use this power, but there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world!”

    The Bible disagrees! Donald Trump’s view that the USA will always be the world’s most powerful nation overlooks the history of civilization as well as biblical prophecy.

    Bible prophecy specifically teaches that the power with the strongest military will be defeated.

    Notice several translations of a prophecy in the Book of Daniel concerning the King of the North‘s coming military conquest (the “He” in verse 39 is identified as the King of the North in Daniel 11:40):

    39 He shall deal with the strongest fortresses with the help of a foreign god. Those who acknowledge him he shall load with honor. He shall make them rulers over many and shall divide the land for a price. (ESV)

    39 He will take action against the strongest of fortresses with the help of a foreign god; he will give great honor to those who acknowledge him and will cause them to rule over the many, and will parcel out land for a price.. (NASB)

    39 Claiming this foreign god’s help, he will attack the strongest fortresses. He will honor those who submit to him, appointing them to positions of authority and dividing the land among them as their reward. (NLT)

    39 He will attack the mightiest fortresses with the help of a foreign god and will greatly honor those who acknowledge him. He will make them rulers over many people and will distribute the land at a price. (NIV)

    39 He’ll take action against the strongest fortresses. With the help of a foreign god, he’ll recognize those who honor him, making them rule over many, and he’ll parcel out the land for a profit. (ISB of 2012)

    39 He shall deal with the strongest fortresses by the help of a foreign god; those who acknowledge him he shall magnify with honor. He shall make them rulers over many and shall divide the land for a price. (RSV)

    39 He shall deal with the strongest fortresses by the help of a foreign god; those who acknowledge him he shall magnify with honor. He shall make them rulers over many and shall divide the land for a price. (RSV, Catholic Edition)

    39 And he shall deal with the strongest fortresses with the help of a foreign god; whom he shall acknowledge, shall increase glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for a price. (Jewish Publication Society of 1917)

    Once the USA is conquered, it will no longer be what Donald Trump calls “the most powerful nation in the world!” Actually, it will no longer exist as a nation once it has been divided (more on the ‘strongest fortresses’ can be found in the article USA in Prophecy: The Strongest Fortresses.)

    Isaiah warns that “The fortress also will cease from Ephraim” (Isaiah 17:3)–but unlike Manasseh (USA), Ephraim (UK, etc.) simply does not have the strongest fortresses in the 21st century. Yet, this shows that both the USA and its Anglo-Saxon descended allies will lost their military abilities.

    Getting back to Daniel 11:39, this passage about the “strongest fortresses” cannot be referring to the continental Europeans as they support the King of the North, nor can it be referring to the Russians, Chinese, or other Asians as they do not get involved until verse 44 (see also The Eurasian Union, the Kings of the East, and Bible Prophecy).

    10 All the sinners of My people shall die by the sword, Who say, ‘The calamity shall not overtake nor confront us.’ (Amos 9:10)

    People who have faith that the USA will continue and get through all of this should ask themselves,  “Why?”   They also may wish to ask themselves since the Bible talks about end time kings of the north (Daniel 11:44-45), south (Daniel 11:40), and east (Revelation 16:12), why does it not mention an end time king of the west? The USA is west of Jerusalem, in a major sense is currently the “King of the West”, and apparently is the Western naval power of Daniel 11:30–yet no King of the West seems to exist after the King of the North eliminates those with the strongest fortresses (Daniel 11:39) (for more information, please also see the article Who is the King of the West?).

    How will the Europeans be able to do this? For years, I have believed it would be because of technological advances as well as the USA trusting Europe too much. And Europe has made great strides in areas of military technology that relatively few seem to realize. For details, please check out the article European Technology and the Beast of Revelation as well as a related YouTube video titled Military Technology and the Beast of Revelation.

    What people do not seem to realize is that Europe does not have to have a bigger military than the USA–just one that has a focus on eliminating the USA’s military, and one that takes advantage of weaknesses and agreements (like NATO) of the USA.

    This military success will come as a surprise to the world as they will marvel (Revelation 13:1-4) as it was not widely believed that the Europeans could defeat the USA. For proof that the Beast of Revelation 13 is European, check out the video Can You Prove that the Beast to Come is European?

    Is Donald Trump Apocalyptic?

    The last book of the Bible is referred to as “Revelation” or the Apocalypse (the Greek term which means revealing, and this was given to the Apostle John on the island of Patmos, per Revelation 1:9).  For purposes of this section, we will use the term “apocalyptic” to mean related to events that lead to the end-time events prophesied in the Bible.

    Although Donald Trump is not, and will not, be the final Antichrist, there are reasons to believe that the rising of the prophesied final ten-horned beast power (Revelation 13:1) and the destruction of the United States could take place under the his administration if he wins and it lasts two full terms (eight years).

    And this destruction is likely to include terrorism and partial nuclear devastation.

    In November 2008, Catholic Cardinal Stafford (while head of the Apostolic Penitentiary of the Holy See) claimed that Barack Obama was “aggressive, disruptive, and apocalyptic because of positions on matters such as abortion:

    Barack Obama... asserted, “We are not only going to win this election but also we are going to transform this nation.........The first thing I will do as President is to sign The Freedom of Choice Act........I put Roe at the center of my lesson plan on reproductive freedom when I taught Constitutional Law...........On this issue I will not yield..”... The content and rhetoric of Obama and Biden have elements similar to those described earlier: aggressive, disruptive and apocalyptic...My use of the word “apocalyptic” would be emphatically biblical, rooted in the understanding of the Book of the Apocalypse. (Stafford, Cardinal James Francis. Cardinal's Address to Catholic University of America. Catholic News Agency , November 13, 2008)

    By the last part of that definition, a Donald Trump presidency would also be apocalyptic. 

    By my definition, short of personal repentance, he will likely take apocalyptic steps in the future.

    Here are 13 specific reasons indicating some of how a Donald Trump presidency would be “apocalyptic”:

    1. The timing of his rise in political prominence. The 6000 years that God gave humans to run matters on their own is almost over (see Does God Have a 6,000 Year Plan? What Year Does the 6,000 Years End?). We in the last days of God’s plan. A day to God is like 1000 years (2 Peter 3:8; Psalm 90:4), and since it is wise to know the days (Psalm 90:12), this is a reason that Donald Trump would be apocalyptic. It may be that only one or two full presidential terms are left before the start of the Great Tribulation and the fulfillment of related prophecies in the Book of Revelation.  By virtue of his timing (as well as his actual planned and unplanned actions) are enough to contribute to the fulfillment of various end-time prophecies (watch also Will the Great Tribulation Start in 2017?).
    2. Donald Trump has already offended the Europeans, with his trade and other policies, though he gets along with some. Despite a certain accuracy in his statements related to NATO, the result will not turn out quite as Donald Trump expects. Some of his statements may be leading to the rise of the prophesied King of the North, who is to be the final leader of the Beast of Revelation (Revelation 13:1)–and some in Europe have looked forward to Donald Trump’s rise for their own agenda as they believe “Trump presents a once-in-a-generation opportunity for emancipation from American influence” (see ‘Why Europe Secretly Roots For Donald Trump’?). Donald Trump wants the Europeans to keep their financial commitments on military spending, but apparently not realizing that the Europeans will want greater Independence from the USA militarily. And there was growing anti-American sentiment in Europe prior to his election. He is so offensive to some of them, that more will decide that they do not wish to rely on the USA as a close partner and will work towards alternative.  Today, “German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen told German public broadcaster ARD on Wednesday morning that Trump’s victory was a “deep shock.” She added: “I think Donald Trump also knows that this election was not for him but was against Washington, against the establishment.”In terms of what the election might mean for Germany, von der Leyen said: “Europe has to prepare for the fact that it must provide for itself,” including a larger defense budget. She believes that the US will demand greater German engagement in NATO. …German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier also spoke about what the election might mean for Germany. “We hope that we are not facing greater instability in international politics. During his campaign, Trump was critical not just of Europe, but also of Germany. I believe we must prepare for American foreign policy becoming less predictable. We must prepare for a situation in which America will be tempted to make decisions on its own more often.”

      “I don’t want to sugarcoat it: Nothing will be easier and much will be more difficult,” he continued. … In Brussels, President of European {Parliament} Martin Schulz said: “I’m not happy about it……” The Bible teaches that Europe will have a “great army” (Daniel 11:25) and ultimately destroy the power with the “strongest fortresses” (Daniel 11:39), which is the USA (watch also Do these 7 prophesies point to the end of the USA?).

    3. In 2015, Donald Trump basically said he never repented. The God of the Bible expects leaders to encourage repentance and moral behaviors when they are subject to destructive punishment (cf. Jonah 3:6-9). Donald Trump, like many other U.S. politicians, does not seem to believe that the U.S.A. needs to repent for its sins against God (see also Christian Repentance). Yet, without national repentance, the U.S.A. is doomed for destruction (Isaiah 30:12-13; Daniel 11:39). Of course, people are supposed to pray for political leaders (1 Timothy 2:1-3), and that should be done irrespective if one agrees with the leader. Sometimes, leaders and/or their policies change.
    4. By focusing too much on threats from China and almost always considering the Europeans as some type of allies, a Donald Trump Administration is currently not expected to reverse the Asian ‘pivot’ strategy. Unless he changes that, this pivot will help result in destruction of the USA.
    5. Donald Trump’s statements against Apple, Inc. suggest an environment of loss of privacy and favoring unlimited government control. This type of thing will be exploited by 666 of Revelation 13:16-18.
    6. We are in a period of self-censorship and government censorship. A “famine” of the word is prophesied (Amos 8:11) and a possible Donald Trump Administration may impose broadcast, print, Internet, and/or restrictions as it attempts to have more control (see also Republican Donald Trump and China’s Xi Jingping want control over the internet).
    7. Donald Trump is an admitted adulterer, strip club and casino owner, and married a woman who was professionally engaged in pornogrpahy. By encouraging and not discouraging aspects of biblical immorality, Donald Trump is setting the U.S.A. up for punishment (Isaiah 30:12-13; Romans 1:18-32) that has and will include troubles, violence, weather problems, earthquakes, food shortages, and pestilences (Mark 13:7-8; Luke 21:10-11). The time will come when, these problems will further worsen.
    8. Donald Trump repeatedly has stated that he will “make America great again.” Biblically, he has not given reasons for that to be the case. Morally, economically, and militarily, the USA has been in decline (though the military decline is still more relative to the climb of others). The Bible warns repeatedly that false declarations of peace and safety will lead to end time destruction (1 Thessalonians 5:3; Jeremiah 6:14-15).
    9. His misstatements, position changes, and attacks against those he is upset with suggests that he is not always honest. And this may cause people to groan (Proverbs 29:2). His bragging statements, etc. are consistent with those warned about in 2 Timothy 3:1-6.
    10. His religious views hint that he is somewhat ‘ecumenical.’ An ecumenical power is warned about in the Bible and is expected to rise up in the end times (Zechariah 2:6-8; Revelation 17; 18). I expect him to make ecumenical supporting statements.
    11. Donald Trump has been a polarizing figure and has offended many including  minorities and Muslims. Expect civil unrest and rioting. The Bible prophesies “There shall be terror within” (Deuteronomy 32:25). The Bible also specifically warns of problems from Arabic peoples in the end times (Psalm 83:3-8). Some Syrians, already in the USA, may take terroristic actions as that too is consistent with biblical prophecies (Isaiah 9:8-9, 11-12).
    12. Donald Trump is greedy, prideful, and despite claiming to be a Christian, he stated he never repented. The Bible teaches one needs to repent to be a Christian (Acts 2:38-39), “be sure your sin will find you out” (Numbers 32:23), and that “Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.”(Proverbs 16:18)
      Notice something that Donald Trump said in his Nevada victory speech the night of February 23, 2016:

      It’s hard for me to turn down money because that’s what I’ve done in my whole life, I grab and grab and grab. You know I get greedy I want money, money.

      I’ll tell you what we’re going to do, right? We get greedy right? Now we’re going to get greedy for the United States we’re going to grab and grab and grab. We’re going to bring in so much money and so much everything. We’re going to make America great again, folks, I’m telling you folks we’re going to make America great again. …

      You’re going to be proud of your president, and you’re going to be even prouder of your country, OK?

      Notice that Donald Trump clearly is stating he is a greedy lover of money.  The Apostle Paul was inspired to write, “1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” (2 Timothy 3:1-5). So, how could Donald Trump win? Well, the Bible teaches, “That the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, Gives it to whomever He will, And sets over it the lowest of men.’ (Daniel 4:17)

    13. Donald Trump’s history of corporate bankruptcies demonstrate that he is willing to not pay his debts. The Bible teaches, “The wicked borrows and does not repay” (Psalms 37:21). The USA is the most indebted nation of all time–and the Bible warns of destruction of the highly indebted in the appointed time of the end (Habakkuk 2:1-8). If Donald Trump increases that debt and/or defaults on that debt, this could trigger the end of the USA (Habakkuk 2:6-8).

    The Great Tribulation, itself, cannot begin until at least 2020 (and likely later than that; watch also Can the Great Tribulation begin before 2020?). It may possibly begin in a year that Donald Trump could be president, but I do not believe it can during his first term of office. He may well take military, economic, cultural, and other steps that could lead to to the Great Tribulation (Matthew 24:21), if he is in the presidential office past January 2021.

    A related video is titled: Donald: 'Trump of God' or Apocalyptic?

    Perhaps I should add that Donald Trump's approach to the Islamic State may result in a tighter confederation of Islamic nations, consistent with one prophesied in Daniel 11:40-43 and Ezekiel 30:2-8 (see also Is the Future King of the South Rising Up?).

    In my 2017 book,Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse, I listed 20 ways that Donald Trump could be considered to be apocalyptic.

    US Debt and Donald Trump

    Since the USA accumulated more debt than it ever should have, this puts the USA at major risk when interest rates rise.

    On November 17, 2016, US Fed Chair Janet Yellen called for a rise in interest rates (

    Notice the following two items, published the day prior to that pronouncement:

    The Fatal Flaw in Trump’s Economic Plan...

    Does Trump’s economic plan carry the seeds of its own demise?

    Trump’s blasted Janet Yellen and the Fed for keeping interest rates artificially low. But if he’s going to spend over $1 trillion on national infrastructure over the next decade, he might have to whistle a different number…

    The Fiscal Times reports the findings of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget. Those findings show that if 3-month Treasuries rise to about 4% by 2018, and if 10-year Treasuries rise from today’s 2.24% to roughly 5.2%, “interest payments on the federal debt will soar to $505 billion in 2018.”

    That’s $282 billion higher than last year. The point being, debt doesn’t seem to matter… until it does. University of Chicago finance Professor John Cochrane:

    Here’s the nightmare scenario: Suppose that four years from now, interest rates rise 5%, i.e., go back to normal, and the U.S. has $20 trillion outstanding. Interest costs alone will rise $1 trillion (5% of $20 trillion) multiplying already unsustainable deficits! This is what happened to Italy, Spain and Portugal. Don’t think it can’t happen to us. It’s even more likely, because fear of inflation — which did not hit them, since they are on the euro — can hit us.

    Macro economist Richard Duncan is a Daily Reckoning contributor. Bear in mind Richard’s a boomer for quantitative easing and ultra-low rates. But he says in no uncertain terms that interest rates must not be allowed to rise to normal levels. Richard recently fired off a letter of advice to President-elect Trump. From which:

    You have… been elected at a time when the global economy is in grave danger of collapsing into a depression, one from which it might not recover for decades — if ever… If interest rates go up significantly, the bubble will pop and the New Great Depression will begin. One wrong move on your part and the economy will spiral out of control into a depression. It won’t be short and sharp like 1921. It will be long and devastating like 1929–1945.

    One wrong move doesn’t allow much wiggle room. Richard says Trump can’timpose trade tariffs or cut taxes, which are both planks of his agenda. They’re both inflationary in Richard’s estimate. And inflation will bring higher interest rates…

    Tariffs would drive up the price of imports and fuel inflation.

    What’s Trump’s stand on interest rates and taxes?

    Trump has been quoted on occasions expressing his views on the country’s current interest rate levels. Most of those times he has indicated that the current interest rate levels are very low for no genuine reason and that they should be increased. While he appears to have since softened his stance, there is no telling that once he is inaugurated he won’t make those changes.

    This could have devastating effect on economy if not done cautiously, especially considering his plans on taxation. Trump has expressed that he intends to lower taxes. That does not go down well with his plan to impose trade restrictions on foreign countries especially ones that contribute significantly to the national debt.

    How could this affect the American citizens?

    Taxation and debt are sources of revenue for the country, so if you cut down taxes and impose measures that could reduce funding from foreigners via debt while at the same time increasing interest rates—it could cause an economic meltdown.

    That would mean squeezing money out of the economy which for the one and only good reason would boost inflation. However, as many credit monitoring experts would say, the impact on citizens may not be as positive.

    Yes, the USA will again get high inflation.

    Yet, the time will come when the USA will face problems worse than high inflation.

    While Donald Trump did not accumulate the first approximately $20 trillion in USA debt, that debt increased greatly under his Administration.

    The Bible teaches that the result of debt accumulation will  be far worse than even many pessimists believe.  Here is an end-time prophecy given to the prophet Habakkuk by God over 2600 years ago:

    2 And the Lord answered me:

    “Write the vision;
    make it plain on tablets,
    so he may run who reads it.
    3 For still the vision awaits its appointed time;
    it hastens to the end—it will not lie.
    If it seems slow, wait for it;
    it will surely come; it will not delay.

    4 “Behold, his soul is puffed up; it is not upright within him,
    but the righteous shall live by his faith.

    5 “Moreover, wine is a traitor,
    an arrogant man who is never at rest.
    His greed is as wide as Sheol;
    like death he has never enough.
    He gathers for himself all nations
    and collects as his own all peoples.”

    6 Shall not all these take up their taunt against him, with scoffing and riddles for him, and say,

    “Woe to him who heaps up what is not his own—
    for how long?—
    and loads himself with pledges!”
    7 Will not your debtors suddenly arise,
    and those awake who will make you tremble?
    Then you will be spoil for them.
    8 Because you have plundered many nations,
    all the remnant of the peoples shall plunder you,
    for the blood of man and violence to the earth,
    to cities and all who dwell in them. (Habakkuk 2:2-8; English Standard Version)

    The USA is the most indebted nation in the history of humanity and those in it should try to understand this prophecy. Perhaps it should be noted that when I checked last week, the United Kingdom was listed as having the second highest amount of total debt (about 1/2 that of the USA).

    The Anglo-American world order will come to an end. Accumulation of debt, and then having to pay historically 'normal' interest rates will strain the national economies of the USA and UK more than almost anyone will believe.

    Those who think the current world order with the USA’s dollar on top will last through the end of this century are in error.

    Those who will believe the Bible will take the words that God spoke to the prophet Habakkuk seriously.

    Donald Trump has stated:

    I’m the king of debt. I love debt. (Egan M. Donald Trump: ‘I’m the king of debt.’ CNN, May 7, 2016)

    The Bible warns that debt, and having to borrow from foreigners, is a curse that would hit those who received various biblical blessings as they became more disobedient (Deuteronomy 28:15,43-46).

    Look for Donald Trump to make outrageous comments that will offend certain Europeans. Look for him to take steps that will result in the Europeans better arming themselves. Look for him to make statements related to trade that the Europeans will not like.

    Contrary to his campaign slogan, Donald Trump will NOT make “America great again.” But there is hope for extending the prosperity of the USA (cf. Daniel 4:27).

    America was made great from blessings that God gave to Abraham and his descendants, specifically promises made to Israel’s son Joseph’s son Manasseh (see Anglo – America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel).

    Is Donald Trump an American Messiah?

    Is Donald Trump some type of ‘messiah’? :

    Notice the view of an anti-Trump writer:

    September 6, 2016

    At a minimum, 40% of the American voting public is going to vote for Trump. With a deeply flawed Hillary Clinton as the Democratic Party candidate and aging party leadership that inspires more contempt than enthusiasm, there is always the possibility that Trump can win.

    Angry, Under-Educated, White, Rural Americans

    So it is worth trying to figure out just who makes up this 40% and how they can be so attracted to a pathological narcissist with so little regard for them or policy options that favor them? The first, and perhaps most difficult group to understand, are a bunch of angry, under-educated, white, rural Americans who claim to have been left behind by whatever passes for prosperity in America.

    Their standard bearer Trump is a rich white guy from New York who openly admits that his personal greed drives him to do whatever is necessary to succeed at the expense of others. …

    So why are they voting for Trump. The answer isn’t kind: They don’t like black folks, immigrants or “liberals” like me (even though I fish quite a bit). So the first guy who comes along willing to openly share their contempt and guide them to a white promised land seems like the messiah.

    Now, while I am not a Donald Trump advocate, I do  not believe that anti-black feelings are behind why most support Donald Trump. Many are disappointed with Washington and want a change. Many who supported him feared government encroachment in the areas of religion and morality.

    That being said, as far as the ‘messiah’ comment goes, notice what World Net Daily reported from a Jewish rabbi and a Baptist preacher related to Donald Trump:

    September 5, 2016

    Donald Trump has been called a lot of things. “Messiah” probably isn’t one of them.

    A Jewish rabbi from New Jersey, however, is making that claim, making clear in the process that he doesn’t see the GOP presidential nominee as the Messiah but rather a messiah.

    Rabbi Mendel Kessin, during a lecture shared in late August, said Trump will play the role of a “messiah-like figure” leading America, which he sees as leader of Western Christianity, into its role as the rehabilitated biblical Esau – a righteous nation that repents of its past sins and becomes a helper of Israel.

    Trump, the GOP nominee for president, will be a factor in the end of days in America by reflecting the “rehabilitation of biblical Esau,” said Kessin.

    Kessin believes Trump has a critical role to play in purifying the U.S.

    “What I believe is that the one who is going to switch from [Esav persecuting the Jews] to [Esav serving the Jews] is Donald Trump,” he says. “He’s going to purify Edom.”

    At the 43-minute mark of the lecture, Kessin says the Hebrew numerical value of Donald Trump is the same as that of Moshiach ben David (Messiah son of David). He quickly assures his listeners that Trump is not the long-awaited Messiah of the Jewish people. At the same time, Kessin plainly asserts that Trump has the qualities of a messiah-like figure.

    “Someone who will turn a nation completely, diametrically opposite is a messiah,” Kessin says. “He further contends that good times will return to the U.S. under the leadership of Trump because “Peace and prosperity must happen in order to rehabilitate the Jews in America, to prepare them for Moshiach (Messiah).”

    Carl Gallups, a Baptist pastor in Florida, radio talk-show host and author of several Christian books including “Be Thou Prepared,” has a different take on the rabbi’s message.

    “I think the main thrust of Rabbi Kessin’s message is that, somehow, Yahweh might be in the process of using Donald Trump to bring about some much-needed biblical reformation to the United States and, thus, the world,” Gallups said.

    “I think he is also hoping and praying, along with much of the Jewish and Christian world, that Trump might be used of God to restore the United States to being a great friend and protector of Israel. This is especially true as we see the miraculously returned Israel now surrounded with nations on every side that are plotting its ultimate demise.”

    Gallups told WND he thinks Kessin’s lecture is reflective of the spirit of the times.

    “People all over the globe have a sense of urgency, expectancy, and trepidation about the future,” he said. “Even people who don’t claim to be ‘believers’ or Christians, even those who never go to church or read the Bible are asking, ‘What’s wrong with the world? Why is the Middle East the center of such huge international turmoil? Are we on the verge of World War III?’”

    Gallups said he understands what Kessin is trying to say, viewing Trump in many ways as the antithesis of President Obama.

    “He’s looking at it in the same way that a number of Christians and even biblical scholars have examined Obama’s journey, candidacy, and eight-year presidential legacy and point out his clearly ‘antichrist’ characteristics without ever believing him to be, or declaring him to be, the actual antichrist,” Gallups said. “I don’t think there is anything unbiblical about examining the times in which we live, and the world-impacting leaders of our times, and noting the biblical characteristics of those that Yahweh may be using for His ultimate purposes in our highly prophetic era.”

    “I also find it remarkable,” Gallups added, “that Rabbi Kessin outlined the qualities of a messianic figure as being that of a powerful person, a great person, a biblical scholar, a righteous individual, and one who is at the same time also ubiquitously despised, while seemingly coming ‘out of nowhere.’ These very same things can be said of the real and ultimate Messiah, Yeshua/Jesus.”

    Of course, Donald Trump is NOT (and was not) America’s messiah.

    What the USA needs is national repentance, the return of Jesus, and the establishment of the Kingdom of God.

    America’s Messiah, as well as the for the rest of the world, is Jesus the Christ. It is Jesus, the Lamb of God, that takes away the sins of the world (John 1:29), not an American politician.

    Political Leaders Do Not Hold the Answers

    We are seeing more and more leaders that are coarse and have serious moral issues.

    This should not be surprising because the Bible says "the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, Gives it to whomever He will, And sets over it the lowest of men" (Daniel 4:17).

    Consider the following in that light:

    March 16, 2016

    At about ten o’clock, shortly after the networks called North Carolina for him, Trump appeared onstage in Palm Beach and delivered an even wackier performance than usual. With his campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, who stands accused of manhandling a female reporter, standing next to him, Trump spent as much time thanking the voters and politicians of the Mariana Islands, which had contributed a mere nine delegates to his cause that morning, as he did thanking the voters of Florida, Illinois, and North Carolina, who among them had contributed a hundred and fifty-two. He pointed out how far he had come since starting out last July, and, interestingly, appeared to give the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham much of the credit for his rise. The terrorist attacks in Paris happened, he said, and his campaign “took on a whole new meaning.” Americans were looking for security, “and all of a sudden the poll numbers shot up.”

    Events, at various times, pushed up voter support for Donald Trump related to the primaries and the election in November 2016.

    Notice also the following scriptures:

    12 As for My people, children are their oppressors, And women rule over them. O My people! Those who lead you cause you to err, And destroy the way of your paths.” (Isaiah 3:12)

    16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err, And those who are led by them are destroyed (Isaiah 9:16).

    While Donald Trump has various positive points, he caused people to err (and had done that by, for example, owning strip clubs, increasing debt, etc.).

    Donald Trump's siren song was/is basically that foreigners, migrants, and Wall Street have taken advantage of the USA, and Americans would be better off if he renegotiates treaties and changes laws.

    On the Democratic side, their siren song is that corporations, rich straight white men, and Wall Street have taken advantage of many in the USA and Americans would be better off if laws are changed to increase taxes on the rich and force corporations to give more to women, minorities, migrants, while also changing society's laws related to gender matters.

    Both sides employ greed and envy as motivators. Jesus warned against covetousness (Luke 12:15).

    Neither Donald Trump's nor the Democratic's siren songs are the solution.

    The US political leaders do not seem to realize the national identity of the USA according to the Bible (see Anglo – America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel), that God has a 6,000 year plan, and that national repentance is needed or the USA is doomed (Habakkuk 2:6-8; Daniel 11:39).

    Time is running out for the USA. We are getting closer to the end of the 6,000 years that God is allowing humans to rule themselves, prior to the return of Jesus Christ and the beginning of the millennial reign (see Does God Have a 6,000 Year Plan? What Year Does the 6,000 Years End? and Did The Early Church Teach Millenarianism?).

    And the end of the USA will come (cf. Daniel 11:39; USA in Prophecy: The Strongest Fortresses) whether they believe it or not.

    As far as making America great again, the USA truly needs national repentance, which is something that “the Donald” has never truly called for.

    The USA needs the Gospel of the Kingdom of God.

    Consider also the following:

    2 “The Spirit of the Lord spoke by me,
    And His word was on my tongue.
    3 The God of Israel said,
    The Rock of Israel spoke to me:
    ‘He who rules over men must be just,
    Ruling in the fear of God. (2 Samuel 23:2-3)

    19 Listen now to my voice; I will give you counsel, and God will be with you: Stand before God for the people, so that you may bring the difficulties to God. 20 And you shall teach them the statutes and the laws, and show them the way in which they must walk and the work they must do. 21 Moreover you shall select from all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them to be rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens. (Exodus 18:19-21)

    Donald Trump is covetous and does not have the fear of God.

    Christians should pray for their physical leaders:

    1 Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior (1 Timothy 2:1-3).

    I have been praying for Donald Trump and recommend that all do so.

    Can that help the USA?


    Consider that Daniel was inspired to tell King Nebuchadnezzar:

    27 Therefore, O king, let my advice be acceptable to you; break off your sins by being righteous, and your iniquities by showing mercy to the poor. Perhaps there may be a lengthening of your prosperity. (Daniel 4:27)

    If Donald Trump will turn to God, and more in the USA will as well, then “Perhaps there may be a lengthening of your prosperity.”

    Pray (Matthew 6:10; 1 Timothy 2:1-3; a free online booklet is: Prayer: What Does the Bible Teach?).

    Warnings About a Donald Trump Presidency are Coming to Pass!

    Now, the mainstream media tends to discount or even despise the Bible. That would tend to explain the following from BBC:

    1 May 2017

    What will happen for the rest of Trump’s presidency? You might as well ask a Magic Eight ball

    The first 100 days of Donald Trump’s presidency are now behind him. … the results so far are decidedly mixed. While there has been a paucity of legislative achievements, Mr Trump has notched some successes through executive action, particularly in the realm of immigration enforcement and regulatory rollback. …

    But what happens next? Given what we’ve seen over the past 100 days, anything could be possible. Sometimes it feels like a Magic 8-ball would be just as good at making predictions.

    What is a Magic Eight Ball?

    Face of a ‘Magic 8-Ball’

    According to Wikipedia:

    The Magic 8-Ball is a toy used for fortune-telling or seeking advice, developed in the 1950s and manufactured by Mattel. It is often used in fiction, often for humor related to its giving accurate, inaccurate, or otherwise statistically improbable answers. …

    An 8-ball was used as a fortune-telling device in the 1940 Three Stooges short, You Nazty Spy, and called a “magic ball”. While Magic 8-Ball did not exist in its current form until 1950, the functional component was invented by Albert C. Carter, inspired by a spirit writing device used by his mother, Mary, a Cincinnati clairvoyant. …

    The Magic 8-Ball is a hollow plastic sphere resembling an oversized, black-and-white 8-ball. Inside a cylindrical reservoir contains a white, plastic, icosahedral die floating in alcohol dyed dark blue. Each of the die’s 20 faces has an affirmative, negative, or non-committal statement printed in raised letters. These messages are read through a window on the ball’s bottom.

    To use the ball, it must be held with the window initially facing down. After “asking the ball” a yes-no question, the user then turns the ball so that the window faces up, setting in motion the liquid and die inside. When the die floats to the top and one face presses against the window, the raised letters displace the blue liquid to reveal the message as white letters on a blue background. Although many users shake the ball before turning it upright, the instructions warn against doing so to avoid white bubbles, which interfere with the performance of the ball itself. (Magic 8-Ball. Wikipedia, accessed 05/01/17)

    Can YOU KNOW what will happen?

    Well, not if you are relying on a “Magic 8-Ball” or such nonsense sources.

    Notice the following:

    10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord, and because of these abominations the Lord your God drives them out from before you. 13 You shall be blameless before the Lord your God. 14 For these nations which you will dispossess listened to soothsayers and diviners; but as for you, the Lord your God has not appointed such for you. (Deuteronomy 18:10-14)

    Christians do not use Magic 8-Balls, etc. We look to the Bible (Isaiah 8:10; 66:5). Christians do “not follow cunningly devised fables” (2 Peter 1:16). Watch also the video Trump Presidency Magic 8 Ball or Bible Prophecy?

    At the COGwriter News page, the focus is on explanation of biblical doctrines as well as event aligning to fulfill properly understood biblical prophecies. The media overlooks, and often despises, the Bible, even though it is “word of truth” (2 Corinthians 6:7).

    Quite a few written warnings I made related to Donald Trump have already started to come to pass. Several of which I will list here.

    WARNING ONE: Donald Trump will offend the Europeans.

    The Bible shows that the USA will be betrayed by friends (cf. Lamentations 1:1-2) and the USA will one day be taken over by a European led power (Daniel 11:39; see also USA in Prophecy: The Strongest Fortresses).

    Here are some warnings I made that Donald Trump would offend the Europeans:

    Should he actually become President of the United States, his flamboyance and brashness are bound to offend the Europeans, and ultimately that will not turn out well for the USA (cf. Daniel 11:39). (Thiel B. Can Donald Trump make America great again? COGwriter, December 20, 2015)

    Donald Trump will take steps to upset the Europeans. (Thiel B. Savage claims Obama would trash the economy if Trump wins; German press sees USA becoming more rotten. COGwriter, May 3, 2016)

    Should Donald Trump become USA president, look for him to even more offend the Europeans. (Thiel B. Hillary Clinton, Prophecy, and the Destruction of the United States. Nazarene Books, June 2016, p. 98)

    Has he?

    Certainly. There are many examples, but here are three: Shadow president or mere shadow? In Europe, Pence seeks to reassure allies unnerved by Trump and G20 concludes with increased tension with the USA; Pope Francis pushes for federal Europe and Angela Merkel again says EU ‘can’t rely’ on USA, FPIF says ‘Europe should bolt NATO’ and Europe concerned about Donald Trump and ‘Trump Claims Germany Owes $1 Trillion In NATO Obligations’ ‘A European travel ban on Americans could be a sign of disastrous things to come …’.

    The Continuing Church of God (CCOG) also put together the following video on our Bible News Prophecy YouTube channel:


    The reaction of many leaders in Europe to US President Donald Trump’s trade statements and his withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear arms deal has led some to state this is a “revolt” from Europe. Some say ‘America First.’ should lead to ‘Europe First.’ It has been reported that Europe needs to be “clever” as it develops its military and economy to be less dependent upon the USA. EU Council President Donald Tusk tweeted that with friends like the USA, who needs enemies. EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said , “We have to replace the United States.” Will some of the unintended consequences of Donald Trump’s actions lead to World War Three and the end of the USA? Does the Bible teach this? Does the Bible teach that friendly allies will become enemies? Will an ally that defeats the USA say it happened because of being clever? Are things the same or are we seeing real changes that align with properly understood biblical prophecies? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more.

    Here is a link: Will Europe’s Revolt Against Donald Trump Lead to WWIII?

    WARNING TWO: Donald Trump’s election will be used to further push European unity.

    The Bible shows that Europe will have unification problems, but will still arise (Daniel 2:41-43).

    It may be interesting to note that the “best response’ to Donald Trump, according to various European leaders is European unity. Notice two reports:

    3 February 2017

    European Union leaders on Friday vowed to remain united and assert the bloc on the world stage in response to the U.S. President Donald Trump’s criticism of the EU.

    May 28, 2017

    “Europe is the answer,” Schulz said. “Closer European cooperation on all fronts is the answer to Donald Trump. Above all, we cannot let ourselves be subjugated to Trump’s rearmament policy.”

    Schulz, who served as president of the European Parliament from 2012 to 2017, said European states must take a decisive approach to dealing with Trump, whose presentation and attitude in Brussels and Taormina he compared to that of a dictator.

    This was warned about on the news page. Also, on February 28, 2016, my son Brian and I put out a video where I warned that Donald Trump’s rise would lead the Europeans to take steps to further unite (Could Donald Trump be Apocalyptic?) and a link was posted on this page on that date in the article Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump front runners: Who does Vladimir Putin reportedly prefer and why?

    Related to that, on September 6, 2016, I posted related to Donald Trump:

    Some of his statements may be leading to the rise of the prophesied King of the North, who is to be the final leader of the Beast of Revelation (Revelation 13:1). (Thiel B. Rabbi calls Donald Trump ‘America’s messiah,’ but is he? COGwriter, September 6, 2016)

    Some additional European unity will be needed for that to occur (cf. Revelation 17:12-13) and Donald Trump has already been a motivator for this.

    The day AFTER the November 2016 election, EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker sent out a tweet over Twitter:

    Trump wins … Wake up call for Europe to further unite & take charge of its own destiny (11/09/16)

    How did I know Donald Trump could trigger this?

    The Bible shows that Europe will rise up again (Revelation 13:1-10), have a great army (Daniel 11:25), and will one day defeat the USA (Daniel 11:39). Because of where we are in God’s 6000/7000 year plan (see Does God Have a 6,000 Year Plan? What Year Does the 6,000 Years End?), the timing of Donald Trump and Europe’s disdain for him fit.

    July 10, 2018

    BRUSSELS — European Council President Donald Tusk on Tuesday lobbed a verbal grenade at President Trump ahead of a crucial week of diplomacy, warning the U.S. leader not to mix up his friends and his rivals ...

    “I would like to address President Trump directly, who for a long time now has been criticizing Europe almost daily for, in his view, insufficient contributions to the common defense capabilities,” Tusk said after signing a cooperation agreement between the European Union and NATO. ...

    “Dear America, appreciate your allies. After all, you don’t have that many. And dear Europe, spend more on your defense, because everybody expects an ally that is well-prepared and equipped.”

    European unity has been encouraged because of Donald Trump. See also Politico: Back off, Trump. Germany wants to Make Europe Strong Again. Berlin’s EU presidency motto has echoes of MAGA.

    WARNING THREE: Increased civil unrest will come to the USA.

    Here is something I warned about here in September 2016:

    For years I have warned that more civil unrest was coming to the USA. We have already seen a re-emergence of civil unrest already in 2015 and 2016.

    That does not mean that I agree that globalists will necessarily trigger it etc. But the media certainly has fanned the flames in the past and I expect them to do more such fanning in the future if Donald Trump were to win. (Thiel B. ‘Chaos will erupt across America in less than 100 days… no matter who wins the election’. COGwriter, September 5, 2016)

    Plus, here is something related to that in my bookDonald Trump and America’s Apocalypse:

    For one prophetic example, on September 5, 2016, I warned that the media would fan the flames for civil unrest if Donald Trump were elected. The morning after his election I warned that we would see civil unrest. Less than 24 hours later, tens of thousands, of various backgrounds, were protesting (Blau M, et al. Protesters target Trump buildings in massive street rallies. CNN, November 10, 2016 ) and certain ones in the media helped fan those flames of those protests. Expect more protests against Donald Trump. (Thiel B.Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse. Nazarene Books, 2017, pp. 15-16)

    Donald Trump has been a polarizing figure and has offended many including minorities and Muslims. Expect civil unrest and rioting. The Bible prophesies “There shall be terror within” (Deuteronomy 32:25). (Thiel B.Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse. Nazarene Books, 2017, p. 86)

    That has happened.

    Furthermore, with Donald Trump’s trashing the mainstream media as the “Enemy of the American people” (see, for example Trump Calls the News Media the ‘Enemy of the American People’ and Berkeley turns violent against Donald Trump supporters: Is violent protesting being advocated?), expect various ones in the mainstream media to help provoke protests and civil unrest against Donald Trump. The Bible warns, “There shall be terror within” (Deuteronomy 32:25)–and the mainstream media seems inclined to provoke some of that itself.

    In 2011, I posted the following, not specifically related to Donald Trump, but biblical prophecies:

    Specifically, I expect violent protests in the USA, UK, and Canada (though it may be different there).  (Thiel B. Riots in London and Spain. COGwriter, August 7, 2011)

    Furthermore, notice the following from 2017:

    Leftist Website Urges Violence

    A website called “It’s Going Down” is actually encouraging physical violence against Trump supporters and proponents of capitalism. It’s meant to be used as a resource for Antifa, a group of self-described anti-facists who oppose the president.

    (Thiel B. Antifa hopes to remove Donald Trump with massive November 4, 2017 protests. COGwriter, October 6, 2017)

    The mainstream media has, in general, been supportive of protesters and even those that will use violence to oppose Donald Trump. See also More rioting, more politics, and more racial agitation.

    And then there was the protests on January 6, 2021 that led to a run into Congress.

    WARNING FOUR: The fourth warning was that Donald Trump’s rise would encourage the Europeans to arm:

    If he becomes president, Europeans will intensify their desire to arm themselves. (Thiel B. BBC: ‘Europe hates Trump. Does it matter?’ COGwriter, March 4, 2016)

    I have been saying for a long time that Donald Trump’s rise would encourage the Europeans to arm. (Thiel B. Growing anti-Americanism will change the USA/UK world order. COGwriter, October 3, 2016)

    Since 2015, I have written that Donald Trump’s rise would be a factor in Europe deciding it needs more unity and its own army. (Thiel B. As foretold here, more calls for a European army! Guttenberg: ‘There will be a terrible awakening for Europe’. COGwriter, November 11, 2016)

    That has happened. Notice the following:

    DONALD Trump’s election victory – along with Brexit in the UK- will speed up the plans for a European army, according to Germany’s defence minister Ursula von der Leyen. (Thiel B. As foretold here, more calls for a European army! Guttenberg: ‘There will be a terrible awakening for Europe’. COGwriter, November 11, 2016)

    10 November 2016

    Europe should build its own army and not rely on security guarantees from Washington, the European Commission president said following the election of Donald Trump. At the same time, Jean-Claude Juncker called for the preservation of the transatlantic partnership. …

    “We need more security in Europe, and I do not mean just the anti-terror fight,” Juncker said.

    “Talking about security we need a different way of organizing a European defense … the French National Assembly in 1954 prevented the European community of defense.”

    “We need it now. The idea that the Americans will eternally see to … European security is not true. Independent of the outcome of the US election, the Americans will not see to Europe’s security forever. We have to do it ourselves. And this is why we need a new approach to the European community of defense, including a European army,” Juncker said. …

    The EU ministers are expected to meet in Brussels on Monday to discuss plans to strengthen the EU military cooperation and capabilities.

    Furthermore, in December 2017, Europe’s new military cooperation organization, called PESCO (Permanent Structured Cooperation), formed (see PESCO: The making of a European Defence Union) and announced plans related to military cooperation and technology (see PESCO moving forward with technology).

    In November 2018, the Continuing Church of God (CCOG) put together the following video on our Bible News Prophecy YouTube channel:


    PESCO and a Great European Army

    In November 2018, French President Macron called for a “true European army” because of China, Russia, and the USA. Some others in Europe have echoed that sentiment. On November 9, 2018, US President Donald Trump called that an insult, but the next day said that the USA wanted “a very strong Europe.” Emmanuel Macron referred to Donald Trump as “my friend” and indicated a desire to strengthen Europe’s military spending. In December 2017, 25 European nations agreed to be part of a military alliance called PESCO. Europe also has NATO and IEI. Will Europe end up with “a great army”? Has Donald Trump’s announcement to withdraw from the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty gotten some to say that Europe must rebel against the USA? Is the idea of a United States of Europe and a European army a “paranoid fantasy” or a biblical reality? Will the USA regret Europe becoming a stronger military power? Will the USA be betrayed by “friends” such as its continental European allies? Does the Bible teach any or all of this? Are there connections to the Beast of Revelation or the King of the North of Daniel 11? Dr. Thiel addresses these matters in this video.

    Here is a link to the sermonette video: PESCO and a Great European Army.

    ‘This community needs to be able to defend itself’: Germany’s defence minister says the EU is already building a ‘united’ army

    The PESCO scheme, an acronym for Permanent Structured Cooperation, involves 25 armies working with one another.

    One such project, adopted in late November, involves France, Belgium and Cyprus developing a Beyond Line of Sight Land Battlefield missile systems family.

    Another project, adopted in March last year, involves Greece, Italy and Slovakia developing and building a prototype European Armoured Infantry Fighting Vehicle.

    She said that 25 countries had joined ‘not because we’re following requirements from Brussels but voluntarily because the benefits are obvious and because it’s in Europe’s security interests’.

    November 10, 2019

    With less than a month until the next big NATO meeting, scheduled for the first week of December, France’s Macron has jumped into public relations mode to prepare the public for some big changes on the horizon. Indeed, Macron’s major interview with the Economist on November 7th on the question of the US’s alleged wavering commitment to NATO is a stunning sign of the times.

    Europe wants its own Army

    Cutting through a lot of intentionally confusing messaging, is that France and Germany are just fine with any end to NATO because it helps justify the coming European Army – one that they want, and believe they need anyhow. It only happens to be part of the same reality that US hegemony, and its ability to finance NATO in turn, are coming to an end. In sounding more like a radical post-structuralist international relations theorist than a fiscally conservative leader of a capitalist democracy, Macron shocked the world when he stated in no uncertain terms that this period we are in marks the end of ‘Western Hegemony’. …

    We will recall when President George W Bush attacked Iraq, it came not long after moves by the Iraqi government to do their oil dealings in Euros. The Europe-wide hatred for Bush’s war on Iraq seemed to the politically naïve as an expression of social-democratic pacifism, but in reality was an expression of Europe’s sovereign financial interests versus dollar hegemony. These questions really have not gone away. …

    Macron’s apparent lamentations over the ‘brain death’ of NATO is quite revealing. In this, he refers to truths that everyone knew, but couldn’t say: “NATO is essentially a military occupying force against European sovereignty – for the EU to be a geostrategic entity, it must be in control of its own military forces”. …

    Macron has iterated the call for an EU army a number of times. … Back in August, speaking on how isolating Russia is a mistake, Macron explained that “Western hegemony” is over. This leave us an interesting formula: Western hegemony is over, European regional hegemony must begin. …

    Turkey is NATO’s second largest army after the US.

    Macron isn’t wrong then to imply – what is NATO without the US and Turkey? It is the European Army. This is the view which both France and Germany enter into the December meeting with.

    Donald Trump's NATO statements have encouraged that (see also Donald Trump allegedly saying United States should leave NATO, while PESCO is building a European army).

    WARNING FIVE: There is a fifth warning related to the fourth: Germany will want a stronger military.

    The above was partially based upon Isaiah 10:5-12 which tells of a Germanic-influenced power taking over places, which in the end time include the USA (see also Germany in Biblical Prophecy).

    On November 7, 2016 (the day before Donald Trump’s election), I posted:

    If Donald Trump is elected, the Germans will see this as proof that they cannot rely on the USA for their defense, etc. Germany will push for a European army. Some in Europe actually want Donald Trump to win for this basic reason (see ‘Why Europe Secretly Roots For Donald Trump’?). (Thiel B. Germans opposed to Donald Trump, but not too optimistic about Hillary Clinton. COGwriter, November 7, 2016)

    Was this fifth warning confirmed?


    By November 11, 2016, German leaders did so, with at least one doing so publicly (see Thiel B. As foretold here, more calls for a European army! Guttenberg: ‘There will be a terrible awakening for Europe’. COGwriter, November 11, 2016). In addition, a survey in late December 2016 found that the majority of Germans want to build a formidable European army. (Thiel B. Majority of Germans want a European army. COGwriter, December 30, 2016). In 2017, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Europe should now longer be naive and rely on others for defense (Thiel B. Donald Trump says he’s a ‘stable genius’ as Europe is driven to arm. COGwriter, January 6, 2018).

    Furthermore, in November 2018, the Continuing Church of God (CCOG) put out the following video on our Bible News Prophecy YouTube channel:


    Germany and World War 3

    Could preparations for WWIII began? German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron called for a European army to be independent of the USA and NATO. One of the reasons was to be able to protect against the USA. Is the fourth German reich in progress? What does the Bible teach about Germany, Europe, and WW3? Dr. Thiel addresses these matters in this video.

    Here is a link to the sermonette video: Germany and World War 3.

    February 8, 2019

    BERLIN (Reuters) - Nearly 85 percent of Germans have a negative or very negative view of U.S.-German relations, and most want to put more distance between the traditionally close transaltantic allies, a new poll showed on Friday.

    Just over 40 percent of those polled view China as a better partner for Germany than the United States, the survey of around 5,000 people, conducted by Atlantik-Bruecke and the Civey institute in poll in November and December, showed.

    Ties between the United States and Germany, Europe’s largest economy, have been strained since the 2016 election of U.S. President Donald Trump, who has criticized Germany repeatedly for its trade practices, defense spending and its participation in the Russian-led Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. ...

    A total of 57.6 percent of those polled want to see more distance between Berlin and Washington, and 42.3 percent consider China a better partner.

    About a third of those polled said they viewed right-wing populism and protectionism as the most dangerous global crises, compared to only 1.9 percent worried about Russia, and 2.2 percent who feared the growing influence of China.

    Over 84% of Germans now having a negative view of the USA!

    Here is something from Bloomberg:

    June 10, 2020

    Not every American troop withdrawal from foreign bases is a catastrophe. U.S. military assets are finite, after all, and so repositioning them from time to time can make good sense. Yet reports that President Donald Trump plans to withdraw 9,500 of the roughly 34,000 U.S. troops stationed in Germany have caused a great deal of dismay on both sides of the Atlantic. …

    If the policy thus seems incoherent, that’s because something else is probably going on here. The withdrawal decision came just days after Trump’s most recent spat with Berlin, this one involving Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision not to attend an in-person meeting of the Group of 7 in the U.S. this month — and her resistance to inviting Russian President Vladimir Putin to join the group. Given that Trump has long seen Merkel more as an antagonist than an ally, and given how often the president has used foreign policy to pursue his own grievances, it is all too plausible that the primary issue here is Trump’s effort to punish an uncooperative foreign leader. And if that’s troubling enough, even more worrying is what this episode shows about the decaying state of the U.S.-German relationship. …

    In a single move, Trump has once again exposed the capricious and vindictive nature of U.S. policy, qualities that are particularly worrying in a superpower. He has confirmed that he still doesn’t understand that the U.S. maintains large peacetime military deployments overseas not as a favor to other countries but as a favor to itself. Not least, he has given us a glimpse of just how badly one of America’s most critical alliances has deteriorated, at a time when an increasingly disordered world can afford it least.

    WARNING SIX: Donald Trump’s views on climate change will cause problems with Europe.

    In my book, Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse, I wrote:

    Donald Trump’s view of climate change is expected to set up some type of issue between the USA and Europe. Europe will tend to see the USA as an irresponsible polluter of the planet, while Europe will claim to be the protector that the world needs. (Thiel B.Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse. Nazarene Books, 2017, p. 45)

    This is in the process of being confirmed. Notice:

    February 1, 2017

    Faced with a U.S. retreat from international efforts to tackle climate change, European Union officials are looking to China, fearing a leadership vacuum will embolden those within the bloc seeking to slow the fight against global warming.

    While U.S. President Donald Trump has yet to act on campaign pledges to pull out of the 2015 Paris accord to cut greenhouse gas emissions, his swift action in other areas has sparked sharp words from usually measured EU bureaucrats.

    When Trump’s former environment adviser, until the president’s inauguration this month, took to a stage in Brussels on Wednesday and called climate experts “urban imperialists”, a rebuke from Britain’s former energy minister drew applause from the crowd packed with EU officials.


    China’s partnership with former U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration helped get nearly 200 countries to support the Paris climate change pact in 2015.

    That agreement, which looks to limit the rise in average global temperature to “well below” 2 degrees Celsius compared with pre-industrial levels, entered into force late last year, binding nations that ratified to draft national plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

    But despite Beijing’s green policy drive, propelled by domestic anger over smog and the environmental devastation wrought by rapid economic growth, some EU officials are skeptical it can pull as much weight as the United States on climate issues.

    “We will make a lot of noises (about allying with China), but let’s be honest we lost an ally – a major one,” a senior EU energy diplomat said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

    Trump’s attack on the climate will fail, spectacularly

    President Donald Trump’s most recent assault on the environment not only makes the US into a rogue state on climate change. It will also fail in its goal to create jobs and stimulate the economy, says DW’s Sonya Diehn.

    29 March 2017

    US President Donald Trump’s latest attempt to pander to a tiny constituency – aside from being a thinly veiled gift to the fossil fuel industry – is bound to fail.

    In a PR event on Tuesday, Trump stood flanked by coal miners and climate-denying Environmental Protection Agency head Scott Pruitt as he announced his latest assault on global environmental security.

    Not only does Trump’s executive order deny the existence of climate change, it also rejects the existence of well-documented risks resulting from our changing climate

    What, then, will be the result of this executive order?

    Step toward self-destruction

    Trump’s executive order reversing the climate protections introduced by former President Barack Obama will stand as another milestone in a gradually failing administration.

    Just as Trump demonstrated a lack of knowledge, negotiating skills and general competency in the dramatic failure of Trumpcare last week, so too will this executive order ultimately act to undermine the administration.

    Even if it does salvage some coal jobs, this won’t outweigh missed opportunities in the renewables sector. It’s a round conclusion that the US turning its back on the development of renewable energy will set the country back economically. …

    China and the European Union will now have to take the lead, as they’ve already been doing. …

    Where will this story end?

    The Trump Administration position on ‘climate change’ upset the Europeans. His executive orders in March 2017 got the USA to be called a “rogue state” (watch also The USA Declared a ‘Rogue Nation’!) and his position at the Hamburg G20 meeting in July 2017 was called deplorable by Germany’s Chancellor Merkel (see G20 concludes with increased tension with the USA; Pope Francis pushes for federal Europe).

    His position at G7 meeting was called “a watershed” moment in a Twitter post by Richard N. Haas, the president of the Council on Foreign Relations:

    Merkel saying Europe cannot rely on others & needs to take matters into its own hands is a watershed-& what US has sought to avoid since WW2

    8:08 AM – 28 May 2017

    Donald Trump's position on this and other points from his administration has concerned many:

    19 January 2019

    In his first two years in office, US President Donald Trump pulled the US out of the landmark international nuclear arms agreement with Iran, out of the signature global climate accord ... Because of its potential long-term negative consequences for international efforts to combat global warming, Nye ranks the US withdrawal from the Paris climate compact among Trump's most damaging political decisions yet.

    US accused of blocking ambitious global action against plastic pollution

    15 March 2019

    Environmental groups involved in talks at a United Nations conference in Kenya have accused the US of blocking an ambitious global response to plastic pollution. … a coalition of environmental groups at the conference condemned the US for blocking the ambitious attempts to tackle plastic pollution at source as well as downstream. …

    “It’s hard to find one solution for all member states,” Siim Kiisler, the president of the UN environment assembly, told Agence France-Presse before the final decision. “The environment is at a turning point. We don’t need verbose documents, we need concrete commitments.”

    When asked whether the US had pushed to have the commitments watered down during the week’s negotiations, Kiisler said: “I will not answer that question.”

    David Azoulay, from the Center for International Environmental Law, condemned the weakening of the commitment.

    He said: “The vast majority of countries came together to develop a vision for the future of global plastic governance. Seeing the US, guided by the interests of the fracking and petrochemical industry, leading efforts to sabotage that vision is disheartening.”

    September 23, 2019

    World leaders are gathering Monday in New York for a United Nations summit on climate change as scientists warn much more ambitious action must be taken to meet targets to mitigate the effects.

    Some 60 presidents and prime ministers are due to address the day-long event on topics including shifting away from coal toward renewable energy sources, preventing and responding to disasters, and climate finance.

    U.S. President Donald Trump will not be among those attending the summit. …

    The 2015 Paris Climate Agreement, which has been ratified by 186 nations, calls for actions to prevent global temperatures from surpassing 2 degrees, and ideally remain within 1.5 degrees by cutting greenhouse gas emissions. One of the world’s biggest emitters – the United States – announced under President Trump that it would leave the pact.

    Because of Donald Trump’s announcement to withdraw the US from the Paris Accords, the US was declared a “rogue nation.” Because of that, we made the following video:


    The USA Declared a ‘Rogue Nation’!

    Because of US President Donald Trump’s position on ‘climate change’ as well as certain executive orders from him, the USA has been declared a rogue nation by various ones in Europe, Africa, Asia, and other parts of the world. How does Webster’s Dictionary define ‘rogue’? Is it possible that considering that the USA is a rogue nation will be part of the justification for it getting taken over in the future? What does the Vatican want done? Does the Bible teach that friends, who do not mean to takeover the USA will one day destroy it? Might ‘climate change’ be part of a false gospel?

    Here is a link to our video: The USA Declared a ‘Rogue Nation’!

    The prediction in my book, Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse, about the climate and Europeans and Donald Trump has happened. And the US is increasingly being considered an international outlier as well as being considered an obstacle to a better world.

    The new European Commission President, Ursula vonder Leyen, declared in December 2019 that she wants the EU to essentially lead the world on climate change matters ( dated 12/02/19).

    The nations of the world, and particularly in Europe, will not forgive the USA for its positions on these matters–even if someone replaces Donald Trump in 2021.

    The separation between the USA and Europe is going to become even more real (though many will act like it is not until it is too late for the USA).

    WARNING SEVEN: Donald Trump will be one that is involved in fulfilling 2 Timothy 3:1-5.

    In my book,Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse, I wrote:

    We are living in perilous times (2 Timothy 3:1-5). Partially because of this, Donald John Trump was elected to be the 45th President of the United States. …

    Like certain others, Donald Trump is helping to fulfill the following prophecy for the “last days”:

    1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 6 For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. (2 Timothy 3:1-7)

    Proud, boasters, lovers of themselves, and lovers of money. …He does not seem to value his word. He will make public statements and then not hold himself to them. (Thiel B.Donald Trump and America’s Apocalyps. Nazarene Books, 2017, pp. 9, 82)

    Notice a headline from April 29, 2017: Trump broke 80 promises in 100 days and yet another from January 18, 2018: Donald Trump Averages Five Lies Per Day, Seattle-Based Website Finds. Whether or not he broke over 80 promises or told over 1000 lies, President Donald Trump has made many inaccurate public statements and not held himself properly accountable for them.

    Of course, he is not the only one as the media, in general, has been more than willing to report misinformation about him.

    In my book, Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse, I also wrote:

    Some Protestants have even claimed that Donald Trump could be the ‘trump of God.’ …

    King James Bible: 1 Corinthians 15:52

    In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

    All Biblical musicians know that the last trump equals a musical note! So that would mean the last note or sound coming out of the trumpet! So when Mr. Donald J. Trump speaks his last word, that will be the last note. This is a spiritual sign!

    This is the key to interpreting Revelation

    King James Bible: Revelation 1:19,

    (1) Write the things which thou hast seen, and (2) the things which are, and (3) the things which shall be hereafter;
    So you will use the living words of GOD in the past to interpret the future!

    Why Mr. Donald J. Trump, (the trump of God) will be an act of grace. It will call the undeserving Church into heaven. (Breaking News: The Trump of God vs Rev 17:1 Number 1 of a Series of Signs By: Johnnie Roy Maul. accessed 12/19/16)

    Let it be explicitly stated that all end time biblical prophecy will not be wrapped up by 2019. Although it is remotely possible that Jesus will return during a Donald Trump presidency, we would need to see the deal of Daniel 9:27 confirmed in 2017 for that to be the case–and that currently does not seem likely.

    Furthermore, I do not believe that Donald Trump’s name is specifically related to scriptures in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 or 1 Corinthians 11:51-53. Those are end time prophecies related to the return of Jesus, not a Donald Trump Administration. (Thiel B. Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse. Nazarene Books, 2017, pp. 78, 80-81)

    I do not believe that God will use Donald Trump to be the one calling Christians to meet with Jesus.

    WARNING EIGHT: Debt will increase under Donald Trump.

    In my book, Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse, I wrote:

    Donald Trump and many other American politicians have not run away from increasing U.S.A. debt—that will be to the nation’s peril. …

    Although as president Donald Trump inherited a debt-laden nation, his policies, according to his own public pronouncements will continue to lead to, increased U.S.A. debt. … Increasing national debt will lead to destruction at the appointed time of the end (Habakkuk 2:3–8). (Thiel B. Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse. Nazarene Books, 2017, pp. 35,37)

    According to the US Treasury, the debt of the USA as of 01/19/2017 was 19,944,429,217,106.77 (

    January 19, 2021, $27,752,835,868,445.35, date Trump-Pence leave off, replaced the next day when Biden-Harris inaugerated.

    Notice also the following:

    July 25, 2019

    After claiming to be the greatest at just about everything, Donald Trump has finally found an area where he can stake a credible claim. By negotiating a disastrous budget deal with Democrats, the President could become the greatest creator of government debt in the history of the country. ...

    As the self-proclaimed “King of Debt,” in the private sector Trump never had any problems borrowing more than he could reasonably be expected to pay back, as long as there was an opportunity to renegotiate with his creditors in the long run. Individually, he has been repudiating debt (largely without consequence) for the past 40 years, so why would anyone expect him to stop now?

    But deficits under Trump have expanded even faster than I had expected. The really alarming part is that this occurred with GDP growth higher than I anticipated, and without the additional red ink of a $1 trillion plus infrastructure spending plan that I had assumed would pass in the first two years of his presidency. If the economy slows significantly, as I suspect it will in the near term, we may see annual deficits in the multi-trillion dollar range almost immediately. Republicans and Democrats may be inclined to think that deficits of that size won’t matter either, but I suspect that they will. ...

    The recent budget developments should make it perfectly clear that there is no resistance to the trend of budgetary catastrophe. ...

    In the coming years, multi-trillion dollar annual deficits could be the norm, until we start measuring the numbers by the tens of trillions. This merry-go-round will keep spinning until the ride crashes.

    Debt is rising as warned. And is expected to get much worse (e.g. CBO: Massive rise in debt; COGwriter: CBO is optimistic).

    This will not end well for the USA (cf. Habakkuk 2:6-8).

    WARNING NINE: Donald Trump may propose a peace deal consistent with Daniel 9:27.

    27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week;
    But in the middle of the week
    He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
    And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,
    Even until the consummation, which is determined,
    Is poured out on the desolate. (Daniel 9:27)

    In my book, Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse, I wrote:

    In the future, Donald Trump may attempt to get Israel to accept the type of “peace deal” that Daniel 9:27 seems to refer to. (Thiel B.Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse. Nazarene Books, 2017, p. 67)

    Donald Trump has called his proposal “the deal of the century”:

    January 30, 2020

    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — A tectonic shift in relations quietly underway for years now was on full display as representatives of Gulf Arab states attended President Donald Trump’s unveiling this week of an Israeli-Palestinian plan that heavily sides with Israel and all but crushes Palestinian aspirations.

    The audience at the White House, when Trump presented the plan alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, included Christian Zionist leaders and staunch pro-Israel supporters, such as Republican party donor Sheldon Adelson. Rounding out the crowd were ambassadors of the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Oman, who posed for a photo at the White House ceremony for the plan, which Palestinians have outright rejected.

    The Saudi response was also significant for what it didn’t say — the kingdom did not endorse the plan, but also made no explicit mention of long-held Arab demands for a Palestinian state on occupied land with east Jerusalem as its capital.

    Rather, Saudi Arabia encouraged Palestinians to start “direct peace negotiations,” essentially urging the Palestinians to accept the White House’s framework as the starting point for talks.

    “The Saudis crafted their message to appeal to two audiences: their domestic public and the Trump administration,” Kristin Diwan Smith, a scholar at the Arab Gulf States Institute in Washington, said. Their formal statement, she said, does nothing to offend Trump or deter the Israelis.

    With the exception of Kuwait, all Gulf Arab countries have engaged in outreach with Israel or pro-Israeli figures in recent years.

    While this is not yet THE deal of Daniel 9:27, he has had some success (see Bahrain king’s peace with Israel opposed by Palestinians, Iranians, and Bahrain opposition) is pushing for more (see also The ‘Peace Deal’ of Daniel 9:27).

    WARNING TEN: Donald Trump would support aspects of ecumenical unity.

    The Bible warns about the Babylonian unity in the end times (cf. Revelation 17).

    In my book, Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse, I wrote:

    18. His religious views hint that he is somewhat ‘ecumenical.’ An ecumenical power is warned about in the Bible and is expected to rise up in the end times (Zechariah 2:6-8; Revelation 17; 18). I expect him to make inter-faith/ecumenical supporting statements. (Thiel B. Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse. Nazarene Books, 2017, p. 88)

    Later, Donald Trump announced what appears to be an interfaith step, and his comment about cardinals (since he is not Roman Catholic) sounds ecumenical:

    May 4, 2017

    WASHINGTON — President Trump will add visits to Saudi Arabia, Israel and Rome to his pre-planned trip to Europe later this month, the White House said Thursday, making his first foreign trip as president a tour of three great world religions.

    Trump made the announcement after meeting with Roman Catholic cardinals in the Oval Office Thursday, and during an event to mark the National Day of Prayer with an executive order on what he called “religious freedom.”

    “Tolerance is the cornerstone of peace and that’s why I’m proud to make a major and historic announcement this morning and to share with you that my first foreign trip as President of the United States will be to Saudi Arabia, then Israel, and then to a place that my cardinals love very much, Rome.”

    May 21, 2017

    President Trump delivered his first big international speech …

    “This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects, or different civilizations,” Trump told some 50 Muslim leaders gathered in an ornate conference center in Riyadh. “This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it. This is a battle between good and evil.”

    WARNING ELEVEN: People will call for Donald Trump’s impeachment.

    Now this one was mainly based upon political observation, though Jesus’ comments about a house being divided (Mark 3:25) as well as prophesies about the end ot the USA (cf. Daniel 11:39; Isaiah 10:5-11) were also factors in getting me to write:

    There are issues with what Donald Trump says when he speaks. I expect people will call for his impeachment. (Thiel B.Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse. Nazarene Books, 2017, p. 41)

    So, notice something that seems to be unprecedented:

    May 6, 2017

    The Los Angeles City Council passed a resolution Friday calling for an investigation in Congress into whether President Donald Trump has committed any impeachable offenses.

    “Today I ask the Council to put our city on the record and tell Congress to do its job by investigating whether President Donald J. Trump has violated the Foreign Emoluments Clause of the U.S. Constitution or committed any other high crime or misdemeanor sufficient to warrant commencement of impeachment proceedings,” L.A. City Council member Bob Blumenfield (D-San Fernando Valley) said in a written statement.

    “With this resolution the city of Los Angeles calls on our Congress members and our Senators for the good of the country to investigate Trump’s international finances and make sure that he is actually working on behalf of the American people,” Blumenfield, who sponsored the measure, added. “Every day more alarming information comes out regarding Trump’s business dealings and brazenness about lack of transparency and conflicts of interest.”

    Notice also what has been going on at the federal level:

    January 3, 2019

    On day 1 of the new Congress, San Fernando Valley Rep. Brad Sherman joined a Texas colleague Thursday to introduce articles of impeachment against President Trump.

    It’s actually a re-introduction of the articles that Sherman, D-Sherman Oaks, and Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, first submitted July 12, 2017, charging that Trump committed high crimes and misdemeanors by trying to halt the investigation into his campaign’s alleged collusion with Russian officials.

    The difference is that now, with Democrats in the majority in the House of Representatives, the charges might receive a committee hearing — although Sherman said he doesn’t expect that to happen immediately.

    “I understand that a majority of our Democratic Caucus will want to wait until Special Counsel Robert Mueller completes his report, which I would hope will be issued in the next two to three months,” Sherman said in a statement.

    “I continue to believe that Obstruction of Justice is the clearest, simplest and most provable high crime and misdemeanor committed by Donald J. Trump.”

    July 17, 2019

    The House voted on Wednesday to table a resolution from Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, to impeach President Donald Trump over racist comments he made about four Democratic congresswomen of color, effectively killing the measure.

    The vote — 332 to 95, with one lawmaker voting "present" — marked the first time the Democratic-controlled chamber had weighed in on impeachment, an issue that has created a widening schism within the party.

    House Speaker Pelosi Opens Trump Impeachment Inquiry

    Updated September 25, 2019

    Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced a formal impeachment inquiry into U.S. President Donald Trump and allegations that he sought a foreign government’s help with his 2020 re-election bid.

    “The actions taken to date by the president have seriously violated the Constitution,” Pelosi said. “The president must be held accountable. No one is above the law.”

    Pelosi made her announcement after huddling inside the Capitol with House Democratic leaders, as the number of Democratic lawmakers who support impeachment proceedings grew throughout the day Tuesday.

    “There have been a lot of egregious acts. But there’s nothing that compares to this. This is the president basically saying, ‘Yes, I colluded. What are you going to do about it?'” Democratic Representative Tom Malinowski told reporters.

    Pelosi accused Trump of betraying his oath of office, U.S. national security and the security of U.S. elections.

    “For the past several months we have been investigating in our committees and litigating in the courts so the House can gather all the relevant facts and consider whether to exercise its full Article 1 power, including a constitutional power of the utmost gravity, approval of articles of impeachment,” Pelosi said.

    And then here is a report from CNN:

    December 4, 2019

    (CNN)The stunningly consequential accusation spelled out in the Democrats' impeachment report represents the most sweeping effort yet to capture the span of President Donald Trump's alleged offense and to boil it into a crisp indictment.

    In effect, the 300-page House Intelligence Committee summary of witness testimony, timelines and phone records accused Trump of perpetrating one of the most serious political crimes in the history of the United States.

    The report is a roadmap toward formal articles of impeachment -- an argument to a nation split in two on Trump's political fate that there is no alternative but to remove him from office 11 months before the next general election over his pressure on Ukraine for political favors.

    The stark charge that the House Judiciary Committee will take up in its first impeachment hearing Wednesday fits the gravity of Congress' most somber duty -- deciding whether to end a presidency.

    It is that the 45th President presents an immediate, clear and future threat to American national security, the Constitution and the resilience of the republic's democratic self-governance itself.

    After the House passed its impeachment bill, the US Senate essentially denied it. And the talk is still not over.

    In September 2020, Nancy Pelosi suggested perhaps another impeachment. And again on January 7, 2021:

    Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer put out a statement Thursday denouncing the "insurrection" at the Capitol "incited by the President," and saying, "This President should not hold office one day longer." House Speaker Nancy Pelosi joined the call later Thursday at a news conference.

    "I join the Senate Democratic leader in calling on the Vice President to remove this President by immediately invoking the 25th Amendment," Pelosi said. "If the vice president and the Cabinet do not act, the Congress may be prepared to move forward with impeachment that is the overwhelming sentiment of my caucus and the American people." ...

    Schumer said if the vice president and Cabinet do not remove the President, Congress should reconvene to impeach Trump "ASAP."

    Notice Donald Trump was impeached by the House a second time:

    January 13, 2021

    The House voted today to impeach President Trump for a second time in a swift and bipartisan condemnation of the President's role in inciting last week's riot at the US Capitol.

    About the vote: The House voted 232 to 197 to impeach Trump exactly one week after rioters forced lawmakers to flee from the very chamber in which they cast ballots in during the fourth presidential impeachment in US history. This is the first time a President has been impeached twice.

    We've seen more impeachment action on Donald Trump than any US president.

    WARNING TWELVE: Donald Trump would encourage the rise of the final King of the South of biblical prophecy–a power involving peoples in the Middle East and North Africa.

    Here is something from the Bible:

    40 ‘When the time comes for the End, the king of the south will try conclusions with him; but the king of the north will come storming down on him with chariots, cavalry, and a large fleet. He will invade countries, overrun them and drive on. 41 He will invade the Land of Splendour, and many will fall; but Edom, Moab, and what remains of the sons of Ammon will escape him. 42 ‘He will reach out to attack countries: Egypt will not escape him. 43 The gold and silver treasures and all the valuables of Egypt will lie in his power. Libyans and Cushites will be at his feet: (Daniel 11:40-43, New Jerusalem Bible)

    Notice some of what I wrote about this in my book Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse::

    Expect President Donald Trump to take steps that will help lead to the rise of the King of the South. …

    Donald Trump supports the arming of various nations to defend themselves and not expect the USA to defend them. This suggests he would be supportive of the type of confederation that will lead to the formation of the final King of the South of biblical prophecy (Daniel 11:40-43).

    (Thiel B. Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse. Nazarene Books, Grover Beach (CA), 2017)

    On his trip to Saudi Arabia, Donald Trump signed what was hailed as the largest single US arms deal with Saudi Arabia yesterday (see Largest single arms deal in US history! Is Donald Trump arming part of the King of the South?).

    Notice something else from his trip:

    May 21, 2017

    King Salman of Saudi Arabia says he is committed to stamping out the Islamic State group and other terrorist organizations.

    Salman is speaking at a gathering of the leaders of more than 50 majority-Muslim countries attending the Arab-Islamic-American Summit in Riyadh.

    He says that “we all, peoples and countries, reject in every language and in every form damaging the relations of Muslim countries with friendly countries and profiling countries based on a religious or sectarian basis.”

    He’s also railing against Iran, calling the country “the spearhead of global terrorism.”

    President Donald Trump says the U.S. seeks a “coalition of nations” in the Middle East with the aim of “stamping out extremism.” …

    Trump is speaking in front of an audience of leaders from Arab and Muslim-majority nations.

    He says the U.S. is prepared to stand with those leaders in the fight against extremists, but that those countries must take the lead.

    This sounds a lot like Donald Trump is encouraging the formation of the foundation of a confederation that one day will be led by one called the King of the South (cf. Daniel 11:40-43; Ezekiel 30:1-8).

    Notice also items from 2018:

    April 16, 2018

    WASHINGTON—The Trump administration is seeking to assemble an Arab force to replace the U.S. military contingent in Syria and help stabilize the northeastern part of the country after the defeat of Islamic State, U.S. officials said.

    John Bolton, President Donald Trump’s new national security adviser, recently called Abbas Kamel, Egypt’s acting intelligence chief, to see if Cairo would contribute to the effort, officials said.

    29 July 2018

    US bids to revive ‘Arab NATO’ alliance as part of measures against Iran

    The aim for the alliance of the six Gulf Arab states, Egypt and Jordan is increased cooperation on missile defense, military training, counter-terrorism and developing regional economic and diplomatic ties, according to US and Arab sources quoted by Reuters.

    The Middle East Strategic Alliance (MESA) would, in part, counter Iran’s expansion in the region.

    “MESA will serve as a bulwark against Iranian aggression, terrorism, extremism, and will bring stability to the Middle East,” a spokesperson for the White House’s National Security Council said. …

    The US, Saudi Arabia and the UAE accuse Iran of destabilizing the Gulf region, involvement in the Syria and Yemen conflicts and increasing threats towards Israel.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Trump administration is quietly pushing ahead with a bid to create a new security and political alliance with six Gulf Arab states, Egypt and Jordan, in part to counter Iran’s expansion in the region, according to U.S. and Arab officials.

    The White House wants to see deeper cooperation between the countries on missile defense, military training, counter-terrorism and other issues such as strengthening regional economic and diplomatic ties, four sources said.

    The plan to forge what officials in the White House and Middle East have called an “Arab NATO” of Sunni Muslim allies will likely raise tensions between the United States and Shi’ite Iran, two countries increasingly at odds since President Donald Trump took office. …

    The administration’s hope is that the effort, tentatively known as the Middle East Strategic Alliance (MESA), might be discussed at a summit provisionally scheduled for Washington on Oct. 12-13, several sources said.

    The White House confirmed it was working on the concept of the alliance with “our regional partners now and have been for several months.” 07/27/18

    Plans for an ‘Arab NATO’ gathering momentum

    November 14, 2018

    With Arab nations’ militaries working more closely together than ever before and the political situation ripe, speculation abounds that we will witness the birth of the so-called “Arab NATO” this month.

    The idea for such a security alliance was conceived by the Obama administration. …

    Now, because of the second Qatar crisis, the plan to accelerate an Arab solution for a regional military alliance is a key project being pushed for by US National Security Adviser John Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

    Inadvertently, Donald Trump seems to be helping laying the foundation for the coming prophesied King of the South.

    WARNING THIRTEEN: The rise of Donald Trump will confirm to various ones that the USA is in decline.

    The time of ‘Jacob’s trouble’ is coming (Jeremiah 30:7) along with the final time of the Gentiles (Luke 21:24; see also The Times of the Gentiles), which is consistent with the decline of the USA (see also Anglo – America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel).

    In my book, Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse, I wrote:

    Some consider that Donald Trump’s rise is a sign that the USA is in decline. (Thiel B.Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse. Nazarene Books, Grover Beach (CA), 2017, p. 50)

    Consider also the following:

    18 January 2018

    Global confidence in US leadership has fallen to a new low, and the country now ranks below China in worldwide approval ratings, according to a new Gallup poll.

    The survey of opinion in 134 countries showed a record collapse in approval for the US role in the world, from 48% under Obama to 30% after one year of Donald Trump – the lowest level Gallup has recorded since beginning its global leadership poll over a decade ago. …

    The latest study confirms some of the worst fears of foreign policy analysts in the US and Europe that Trump’s “America first” approach, combined with his volatile and irascible personality, is weakening cohesion among western democracies in the face of a growing challenge from autocracies in Russia and China, and the rise of illiberal democracies and xenophobic nationalism inside Europe.

    Germany is now seen as a global leader by many more people (41% of the sample), with China in second place on 31%. …

    Trump’s first year in office has aroused particular intense antipathy. Gallup found that the median of worldwide disapproval of US leadership has hit a new record of 43%, higher than disapproval of Russia (36%), China (30%) or Germany (25%).

    8 February 2018

    “In the last year, the world has gotten closer — much too close — to the brink of a significant conflict,” wrote Munich Security Conference (MSC) Chairman Wolfgang Ischinger, who has served as Germany’s former ambassador to the US and UK. …

    American ‘sabotage’

    The latest MSC report followed up on last year’s forecast that the United States under President Donald Trump could forfeit its established role as the guarantor of international security by acting unilaterally and furthering an American-centric vision at the cost of its traditional allies.

    Under Trump, the US has given up on policies based on shared values, showing little interest in developing regional or global institutions that shape international relations, and instead favoring bilateral ties that serves its own interests, according to the report’s assessment. ...

    “The world’s most powerful state has begun to sabotage the order it created,” the report said, quoting John Ikenberry, a US foreign policy expert at Princeton University.

    A new era for Europe

    For Europeans, the US’s policy shift means doing more to provide for their own security, including rethinking defense spending, streamlining capabilities and defining a defense union.

    The report quotes German Chancellor Angela Merkel as a reminder of Europe’s newfound predicament: “The times in which we could completely depend on others are, to a certain extent, over … We Europeans will have to take our fate into our own hands.”

    Notice the following:

    Rabobank: Is The Era Of American Global Hegemony Coming To An End

    September 21, 2020

    Friday saw the death of US Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at 87. She was a true titan of the law, and leaves a critical (until now very liberal) Supreme Court seat vacant at a time when the US is bitterly divided on all issues. President Trump insists on pressing ahead with a hearing on a new appointment before the election – just as President Obama did before him when the (very conservative) justice Scalia died; Senate Republicans are saying they will proceed, which they wouldn’t in 2016; and the Democrats insist on not proceeding until after the election, which they didn’t in 2016. So business as usual.

    However, this makes the US election even more important and heated than it already was – and harder to call. … the era of American global hegemony is close to a humiliating end, akin to the British at Suez. …

    As all this unfolds, Europe keeps on Europe-ing. …

    It’s hard work being a hegemon. Imagine if Europe were one again.

    Well, as regular readers of this page are aware, it is not necessary to imagine if Europe were a hegemon again, because the Bible shows that it will be.

    The leadership role of the USA around the world has diminished since Donald Trump became US President.

    WARNING FOURTEEN: Daily sacrifices will one day resume in Jerusalem (cf. Daniel 9:27; 11:31).

    In my book, Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse, I wrote:

    Of course for the daily sacrifices to stop, they will have had to start—thus this is a prophetic event that one can watch for (cf. Matthew 24:15; Luke 21:20). (Thiel B. Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse. Nazarene Books, Grover Beach (CA), 2017)

    Some believe that Donald Trump’s announcement related to Jerusalem will lead to this (cf. Donald Trump reportedly a ‘Cyrus’ preparing the way for a new Jewish temple). While Donald Trump is really not like the prophecies for biblical Cyrus (Isaiah 44:24-28; 45:1-4), Donald Trump is apocalyptic, meaning his actions will help lead to the Great Tribulation.

    After a sacrifice and burnt offering took place by the Sanhedrin in December 2018, the Continuing Church of God (CCOG) put out the following video on our Bible News Prophecy YouTube channel:


    Sanhedrin makes burnt offering to dedicate altar!

    The Reconstituted Sanhedrin performed a ceremony on December 10, 2018 to dedicate a new altar for the use of daily sacrifices. High Priest Rabbi Baruch Kahane officiated. How does this align with Bible prophecy? Daniel wrote three times that the daily sacrifices must stop, hence they first must resume. The Great Tribulation will begin shortly after these sacrifices stop. In this video Dr. Thiel, who has also been to Israel and spoken with The Temple Institute quotes several scriptures and explains why the actions by the Sanhedrin align with prophecy and the end times.

    Here is a link to our newest video: Sanhedrin makes burnt offering to dedicate altar!

    Regular animal sacrifices will again happen in Jerusalem prior to the start of the Great Tribulation.

    WARNING FIFTEEN: Donald Trump will support increased government surveillance.

    In my book, Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse, I wrote:

    Perhaps  it  should  be  noted  here  that  like  the  Obama Administration, Donald Trump has been in favor of many aspects of government surveillance and loss of personal privacy rights. .. He has made statements suggesting a of loss of privacy and favoring unlimited government control. This type of thing will be exploited by 666 of Revelation 13:16-18. (Thiel B. Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse. Nazarene Books, Grover Beach (CA), 2017)

    Now, notice the following:

    January 18, 2018

    The Senate on Thursday gave the Trump administration and national security hawks a significant victory, approving a long-term extension of controversial surveillance programs over bipartisan opposition.

    Lawmakers voted, 65-34, to renew a set of powerful digital spying tools that intercept the digital chatter of foreign targets but also incidentally collect personal information on an unknown number of Americans. The bill now heads to President Donald Trump’s desk, where he is expected to sign it shortly.

    January 19, 2018

    Trump signs bill extending surveillance law — the same law he says was used to spy on him

    WARNING SIXTEEN: Donald Trump’s Administration would focus too much on China and not consider the military threat that Europe poses.

    As mentioned before, the Bible indicates that “friends” will be involved in the USA’s destruction (cf. Lamentations 1:1-2), and Europe is considered to mainly be a friend of the USA–much more so than places like Russia or China.

    In my book, Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse, I wrote:

    By focusing too much on threats from China and almost always considering the Europeans as some type of allies, a Donald Trump Administration is currently not expected to reverse the Asian ‘pivot’ strategy. Unless he changes that, this pivot will help result in destruction of the USA. (Thiel B. Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse. Nazarene Books, Grover Beach (CA), 2017)

    Notice the military priorities of the Trump Administration:

    January 19, 2018

    The U.S. military’s advantage over Russia and China is “eroding,” according to an unclassified summary of the Pentagon’s new National Defense Strategy unveiled Friday by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis in Washington. The document also says that ISIS no longer remains a top threat.

    “Great power competition, not terrorism, is now the primary focus of U.S. national security,” Mattis said. “We face growing threats from revisionist powers as different as China and Russia, nations that seek to create a world consistent with their authoritarian models.”

    Mattis named the rogue regimes in North Korea and Iran as top threats as well.

    February 9, 2018

    The Pentagon is considering plans to send heavily armed, versatile Marine Corps Expeditionary Units to East Asia, curtailing some deployments in the Middle East as it repositions forces in response to growing Chinese influence, military officials said.

    The US has been sending naval ships into Asia:

    US Military Deploys Forces to Asia Surrounding China

    July 22, 2020

    Washington is deploying its military forces throughout Asia for a potential confrontation with China, Defense Secretary Mark Esper said on Tuesday. The message was communicated in an effort to outline the military aspect of Trump’s hardening stance against Beijing …

    Esper added that Washington would continue sending Navy ships into the region to challenge China’s expansionary policies. It should be noted that the U.S. has now officially rejected China’s claims of sovereignty in most of the South China Sea.

    Esper added that the US would continue selling arms to Taiwan so that it can defend itself against an increasingly belligerent China.

    Esper noted that based on China’s actions in Hong Kong, Taiwan has no reason to believe that Beijing will honor its commitments vis-a-vis the defunct “one country, two systems” model.

    This warning is coming to pass.

    WARNING SEVENTEEN: Donald Trump’s position on the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement (TPP) will assist China.

    In my book, Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse, I wrote:

    Donald Trump has stated his firm opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement (TPP) (Trade: Donald J. Trump’s Vision. accessed December 16, 2016). However, various members of his staff support it. Without something like TPP, many nations who were involved with it are likely to move closer to China, as opposed to away from it as China was not part of TPP. (Thiel B. Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse. Nazarene Books, Grover Beach (CA), 2017)

    Notice the following:

    January 19, 2018

    Donald Trump and Xi Jinping, whose countries account for about 40% of the global economy, are offering competing visions for the future of global trade, capital flows and economic integration in this age of widening income inequality and populist angst.

    In an historic role reversal, it’s the leader of the Chinese Communist Party who has emerged as a defender of the Davos consensus, last year using his speech in the Swiss ski resort to defend globalization. And it’s an American president — the main event this year — insisting his country’s economic interests take precedence over gauzy visions of a more inter-connected world.

    Trump comes to the World Economic Forum, set to kick off on Jan. 23, with a rap sheet in the eyes of the Davos true believers. In his first year in office, he’s withdrawn the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade deal and the Paris Agreement on climate change. …

    As America withdraws, China’s global influence is growing. Xi has dispatched his trade negotiators to help formulate a new Asian trade pact in the wake of TPP. China’s ambitious Belt and Road Initiative, which calls for massive infrastructure investment and the development of new trade routes, is reshaping the terrain in the world’s most economically dynamic region.

    The world’s largest trade deal could be signed in 2020 — and the US isn’t in it

    November 12, 2019

    • A group of 15 Asia-Pacific countries is aiming to sign the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership, or RCEP, in 2020.
    • The mega-deal started with 16 countries but India decided not to join the trade pact over concerns that it would hurt domestic producers.
    • The urgency to conclude RCEP increased after U.S. President Donald Trump pulled his country out of another major free trade agreement, the TPP. ...

    The deal, called Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership or RCEP, involves all 10 countries from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) bloc and five of its major trading partners: Australia, China, Japan, New Zealand and South Korea.

    This warning is coming to pass.

    WARNING EIGHTEEN: Mexico will look more towards Europe and less towards the USA on trade matters.

    Notice something I wrote back in 2008:

    The Brits will ultimately decide that they are more supportive of the Americans and Canadians. They will be so much more supportive that they will end up in a trading agreement with them (with the Australians and New Zealanders probably also becoming part of that agreement).

    The EU will decide that Mexico and the rest of Latin America are in more agreement with it and thus make some type of serious trading agreement with most (or all) of Latin America. The Vatican will also have influence here as Latin America is highly Roman Catholic. (Thiel B. A Combined EU & North American Trade Block Coming?, March 3, 2008)

    Notice the following news reports which basically confirmed that:

    February 1, 2017

    The European Union and Mexico have set two new rounds of trade talks in the first half of 2017, an acceleration of negotiations to deepen economic ties in the wake of Donald Trump’s inauguration as U.S. president.

    The European Commission said on Wednesday that EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom and Mexican Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo had scheduled subsequent rounds for April 3-7 and June 26-29.

    “Together, we are witnessing the worrying rise of protectionism around the world. Side by side, as like-minded partners, we must now stand up for the idea of global, open cooperation,” the two said in a joint statement.

    European leaders have said Brussels should take advantage of a more protectionist U.S. leader, who has already withdrawn from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal, to step up negotiations with would-be partners.

    Mexico faces the prospect of a renegotiated North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and possibly higher U.S. import duties.

    April 29, 2017

    Major questions also loom over the fate of the North American Free Trade Agreement. Trump has called the 23-year-old deal that allows free trade between Mexico, Canada and the US a one-sided agreement.
    If a good deal is not renegotiated, Mexico plans to walk away from the pact. The uncertainty in trade relations has led Mexico to strengthen ties with other countries and explore opportunities in Asian, European and South American markets instead of the US.
    After Mexico featured repeatedly in the US elections, Trump himself is now playing a role in who will become Mexico’s next leader.

    Europe is trying to move to fill in areas where Donald Trump has indicated he wants to change trade terms. The Bible foretells the end of the USA (cf. Daniel 11:39) along with the rise of a major international trading power in Europe as well as the downfall of that Babylonian power (Revelation 18). That is why I wrote to expect a deal between the Mexicans and the Europeans.

    A while back, we made a video related to Mexico, Donald Trump, and trade:


    Donald Trump and Mexico’s future

    Mexico has increasingly been in the news because of statements and policies of US President Donald Trump. Many in Mexico are not intending to sit back and accept whatever Donald Trump attempts to force them to do. What will happen to Mexico? Will it make trade deals with Europe? Will it ultimately go to war against the USA? Will the Mexican economy decline at times and then improve? Dr. Thiel answers these questions and more.

    Here is a link to our video: Donald Trump and Mexico’s future.

    WARNING NINETEEN: His attitudes toward GMOs.

    In my book, Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse, I wrote:

    Humans should eat what is good (cf. Isaiah 55:2). Donald Trump, like others before him, has made statements supporting the use of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) to be consumed as foods (Goldberg M. President-Elect Donald Trump and Organic Food – How Concerned Should We Be? Living MaxWell, November 10, 2016). Increased reliance on GMOs by the United States puts the nation at major risk for nearly complete crop failures. The Bible warns that famines (Matthew 24:7) and food shortages (Revelation 6:5-6) are coming and Donald Trump may further help set the stage for this.

    Notice something the Trump Administration did:

    June 11, 2019

    President Donald Trump signed an executive order Tuesday directing federal agencies to ease rules for approving genetically modified crops and other agricultural biotechnology. ...

    Trump signed the order Tuesday during a stop at an ethanol plant in politically important Iowa. The order is intended to speed approval of new agricultural biotechnology, reduce developers’ costs and encourage more investment in GMO crops, the White House said in a fact sheet.

    Yes, Donald Trump has made it even easier to add more GMO crops to the food supply. More on GMOs can be found in the article: GMOs and Bible Prophecy.

    WARNING TWENTY: The price of gold will hit record highs against the USA dollar.

    In my book, Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse, I wrote:

    Gold will set records in US dollar terms. (p. 170)

    It did in 2020--gold futures passed $2000 for the first time ever in July 2020 (Gold hits new record, posts best month since 2016. CNBC, July 30, 2020). Notice also:

    "The price of gold shot up to an all-time high of US$2,067.15 per ounce on Aug. 6" (Woodall T. Gold surges to new highs as US dollar weakens despite growing macro risks. S&P Global, August 10, 2020).

    Yes, records in the price of gold compared to the USA dollar were hit.

    Furthermore, the timing of his presidency lead Donald Trump to him taking many actions that are apocalyptic.

    In my book,Donald Trump and America’s Apocalypse, I wrote:

    The last book of the Bible is referred to as “Revelation” or the Apocalypse (the Greek term which means revealing, and this was given to the Apostle John on the island of Patmos, per Revelation 1:9).  For purposes of this section, we will use the term “apocalyptic” to mean related to events that lead to the end-time events prophesied in the Bible.

    Although Donald Trump is not, and will not, be the final Antichrist (see chapter 3), there are reasons to believe that the rising of the prophesied final ten-horned beast power (Revelation 13:1) and the destruction of the United States could take place under his administration if it lasts two full terms (eight years). And this destruction is likely to include terrorism and partial nuclear devastation.
    My use of the word “apocalyptic” is intended to emphatically be biblical (not political), as rooted in the understanding of the prophetic books of the Bible, including the Book of Revelation, also called the Apocalypse.

    Because he does not seem to understand many end-time biblical events, this perhaps will lead him to be more accommodating to the rise of the King of the North and King of the South powers than one who believed and understands end-time prophecy would likely have supported. 

    Here are twenty specific reasons indicating some of how Donald Trump is “apocalyptic”:

    1. The timing of his rise in prominence. We are in the last days of God’s 6000/7000 year plan. A day to God is like 1000 years (2 Peter 3:8; Psalm 90:4), and since it is wise to know the days (Psalm 90:12), this is a reason that Donald Trump would be apocalyptic. We are getting close to the end of the time God gave humans to rule themselves. Thus, we are close to the start of the Great Tribulation (which will not happen in Donald Trump’s first presidential term) and the fulfillment of related prophecies in the Book of Revelation.

    Theother reasons Donald Trump is apocalyptic are in that book.

    Anyway, Donald Trump truly has taken steps that should be considered as apocalyptic. As far as where we seem to be in the 6000/7000 year plan, check out the article: Does God Have a 6,000 Year Plan? What Year Does the 6,000 Years End?

    As far as timing goes, in 2019 the Continuing Church of God (CCOG) put out the following video on our Bible News Prophecy YouTube channel:


    Armageddon Will it come on Trump’s watch?

    A news article had the following: “Armageddon: Will it come on Trump’s watch?” It then answered that question, but without referring to the Bible. What is Armageddon? What does the Bible teach about it? If US President Donald Trump serves two consecutive terms, can the prophesied gathering at Armageddon take place while he is in office? When is the earliest year that Armageddon can occur? What are some of the events that have to happen prior to the start of Armageddon? Whether or not he can be around for Armageddon, what are some of the ways that US President Donald Trump is apocalyptic? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and does explain the earliest time when Armageddon can occur. A written article of related interest is available titled “ Armageddon: Will it come on Trump’s watch? Is 2019 going to be the year of the Armageddon?

    Here is a link to the sermonette video: Armageddon Will it come on Trump’s watch?

    Now, none of this should be taken to imply that I feel that Donald Trump is a worse president than the last one (to see a list of predictive warning I made about him that came to pass, check out the article Prophecies of Barack Obama?) or that his political opponents would have been better. But what this should show all with “Ears to hear and eyes to see” (Proverbs 20:10), that properly understood biblical prophecies are coming to pass.

    As written before, we in the Continuing Church of God “have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts” (2 Peter 1:19, KJV).

    The Apostle Paul taught:

    20 Do not despise prophecies. (1 Thessalonians 5:20)

    Remember that Jesus taught:

    37 And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch! (Mark 13:37).

    As we get closer to the Great Tribulation (Matthew 24:21), this is definitely a time to watch and take heed to prophecy.
