Trump’s Win an Answer to Prayer—Now the Work Begins

by | Nov 9, 2016 | Blogs, The Strang Report

Yesterday was a historic day. As Charisma has reported, it has been prophesied that Donald Trump would be elected president. The pundits of the nation indicated they wanted a different direction. I believe God answered our prayers. 

Thanks to Pastor Darrell Scott of Cleveland, Ohio (with whom I recorded two podcasts last week), I was invited to New York to the rally to celebrate Donald Trump’s victory. It was an experience of a lifetime. I waited in the ballroom of the New York Hilton from 6:30 p.m. until 3 a.m. with a couple thousand Trump loyalists who helped him get elected. We left only after Donald Trump acknowledged his win on national television and, as you can hopefully witness yourself, his brief remarks were very conciliatory.

During the evening, I posted some things to my various websites. But it was so crowded and so noisy it was hard to post very much. Plus, the digital signal was so poor I could record only one Facebook Live event. And before the evening ended, my cellphone battery died.

On Wednesday morning, I recorded my observations in a 26-minute podcast. In it, I described what I saw and heard last night and what I believe this means for America and the church.

Rarely is the spiritual aspect discussed in the political debate. Many don’t care or don’t see a spiritual aspect. Some of it is because Christians are mean-spirited or just wrong when it comes to predictions.

We understand there is a spiritual aspect, so we published an article from Lance Wallnau saying God was raising up Trump as he did Cyrus in Isaiah 45. Frank Amedia has written about and recorded podcasts concerning what he believes God said.

A friend from church texted me after Trump was declared the winner: “Your prophets might have hit a grand slam.” That wasn’t our intent. Rather, we were just trying to hear from God, not just predict an election outcome like a prognosticator.

Some other “evangelical” magazines actually called for Trump to step down due to imperfections in his personality, style or conduct. I acknowledge that Donald Trump is far from perfect—something he acknowledges in more humility than I’ve seen in most political leaders (and even many Christian leaders). But picking out those flaws is like picking a speck out of his eye while ignoring many logs in his opponent’s eye—not only in policy positions, but in what seems to be outright corruption and breaking the law.

Even though we took a lot of heat for it, I felt it important to put these prophecies on the record so we can begin to understand how to hear from God in these matters in the future.

In a way similar to how Donald Trump will overturn the status quo in Washington, I believe new Christian leaders must change the status quo in the church as it relates to public policy and influencing culture. I believe new leaders like Wallnau, Amedia and Scott as well as Jim Bakker, Pastor Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church in Dallas and Pastor Jim Garlow of Skyline Church in San Diego will motivate Christians to move beyond voting for personalities and vote on principles referred to in political parties’ platforms.

I say a lot more in this podcast. Please listen and share it with others. {eoa}
