Donald Trump doesn’t have to be a Christian for God to use him.

July 28, 2016

Since Donald Trump started his campaign we’ve had a multitude of so called Christian conservatives penning on their blogs how they, due to moral purity cannot ever vote for someone like Donald Trump. I’m not too sure what that’s supposed to mean because not one of the multitude know Trump personally. I suppose they have simply read and heard that he’s a bad guy, he’s immoral, he’s rude, arrogant, has a lousy hair style and all manner of stuff that defines him as a non-Christian. I read where one blogger wrote in all his spiritual wisdom that God never uses an unrepentant sinner to fulfill His will. I pointed out to the gentleman that God used Artaxerxes the king in allowing, and helping Nehemiah rebuild the wall at Jerusalem, yea, Artaxerxes even sent some captains of his army and horsemen to provide protection for Nehemiah’s journey. I also said that there are many ‘unrepentant’ sinners whom God used throughout the Bible in making sure His plan is accomplished.

I think a better example of the above is in the book of Genesis. Shortly after God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah Abraham took a journey winding up in Gerar. Now Abraham and his wife Sarah were pretty old, yet Sarah was still very beautiful. About 25 years before that,  there was a situation where Abraham was passing through Egypt and instructed Sarah to say that he was her brother because he was afraid the Egyptians would kill him and take her. Same situation here, Abraham told Abimelech, the King of Gerar that Sarah was his sister and Sarah went along with the lie ( actually a “half-lie” if there is such a thing. Because she indeed was his half-sister) and said that Abraham was her brother. Abimelech took Sarah and added her to his harem, but didn’t touch her.

Okay, now we all know that Jesus Christ was to be from the seed of Abraham through Sarah. So, in essence Abraham was kind of throwing a wrench in God’s plan. Imagine if Abimelech actually had ‘relations’ with Sarah. That would have cast tremendous doubt whether eventually Jesus was of Abraham’s seed, as confirmed by the geneologies in the Bible. Again, if Abimelech “took” her there would be no proof as to the lineage of Christ.

Anyway, God spoke to Abimelech one night saying that he’s a “dead man” because of taking Sarah and putting her into his harem. Abimelech said, (paraphrasing) “Hey Lord, I didn’t know she was the guy’s wife! I haven’t touched her. In the integrity of my heart I did this thing. The guy said, “She’s my sister and even she said, “He’s my brother!”

God answered Abimelech saying, “I know all this and that’s why I didn’t allow you to touch the woman. Now, restore the man his wife and because he’s a prophet, he will pray for you and you will live. But if you don’t, you and every one with you will die.”

Apparently, God was already cursing the kingdom of Abimelech by making the women barren.

Now, here is where God actually used Abimelech … he called Abraham and said, (paraphrasing)  “Hey man! What have you done to me and my kingdom by bringing on me this great sin? What did I do to you that you would put me in such a situation? You’ve done things to me that you shouldn’t have!”

Abraham brought forth his lame excuse, “I didn’t think the fear of God was here and that when you guys saw my beautiful wife you’d kill be and take her. Sorry about that.”

Abimelech then reproved Sarah, gave Abraham a thousand pieces of silver, a bunch of oxen and and sheep and stuff and sent Abraham away saying, “You are free to go anywhere in my kingdom and live where you please.”

Abraham then prayed and God healed Abimelech and opened the wombs of the women.

Abimelech was a pagan King, an idol worshiper. Yet God used the guy in rebuking Abraham for his lack of faith and to fulfill His promise to us that Christ would come through Abraham and Sarah.

I wrote all that to say who’s to know how God could use Donald J. Trump in fulfilling His will for America? It makes me sick every time I read some sanctimonious Christian say he/she just can’t bring themselves to vote for the likes of Donal Trump and they don’t even know him … essentially voting for Hillary Clinton. In my view, Donald Trump is a saint in comparison. Oh, I’m voting for Donald Trump and I pray he wins.

    Reblogged this on Serve Him in the Waiting and commented:
    EXACTLY!!! They’re just being useful non-voting idiots for the liberals. There are numerous instances in the Bible when God used the ungodly to accomplish His will. I don’t know that Trump will do what he says, but I know Hillary will multiply the damage Obama has done. And Tim Kaine, well, I’m a Virginian and he is very BAD NEWS.

      Thank you STLloyd. That always just kind of “gripped my grunt” when I recalled a person writing that basically God only uses godly people to accomplish His plan. So, I thought I’d “voice” my opinion. Thanks for re-blogging this. Yeah, I’ve been learning about Mr. Kaine lately.

    That God never uses an unrepentant … oh for the love of God! *shakingmyhead* The things people come up with!

    Their God is so tiny and incompetent that He can’t use whoever He wants, however He wants.

    AS A BLACK GUY I AM UNBIASED AND STATE CATEGORICALLY THE FOLLOWING.

    I grewup in Nigeria, so I know my roots and I am happy to be black!

    I am a black man but I am trying to put God first.

    The worst president spiritually in the last 20-30 is surely between Bushes & Obama.
    I am inclined to crown Obama as the worst because he has an inert hatred of Jesus.

    If Obama is not a moslem, he has at least Islamic Sympathiser.

    NOW ABOUT TRUMP vs CLINTON!

    Trump is not a Christian neither is Clinton but he is way better than Clinton, I can’t stand Clinton.

    Trump will roll back the Islamic consessions Obama made, which is important he does.

    So yes God can use Trump and will to roll back all the Islamic consessions Obama made.

    I dont believe Trump is racist, he is nationalistic but not racist.
    If he were why will Ben Carson support him?

    ON A PERSON NOTE WHY I SUPPORT TRUMP
    I also have personal reasons why I support Trump.
    Trump is hilarious so the comedy factor with him will be erroneous

    Considering Christ, Trump is less evil and won’t pander to the NWO.
    And please I look forward to him cracking me up, so yes I am a Trump supporter.

      Thank you for your most welcomed comment Chiedu. Some of my very best friends are a family from Camaroon. Wonderful Christian people. The man is a pharmacist, his wife is a nurse and they have four lovely young children. They’ve been to my home for dinner and discussion and me and my little wife have been to theirs for bible study. My wife goes to their home once a month with other women for a prayer group. They are also Trump supporters (truthfully, the man more than his wife) and wouldn’t consider voting for Hillary. Of course Trump isn’t a racist. Trump has been a well-known celebrity for 30 years and not once was he ever accused of being racist. That is until he started his campaign. That’s all the Democrats have and I really feel that people are seeing through the lie now. And yes, Trump is funny and sarcastic. He can be rude, crass and arrogant, but at least he is the real deal, and I think that’s what we need in America.
      Again thank you for stopping by and I pray you and your loved ones continue in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    Somebody said that Trump will roll back all the concessions to Mooselumz that Obe-won-kanobummer made which is true. But try to keep in mind also that if “The She Person” wins the presidency I think her royal self and her handmaiden, almakazzadeen or whoever .. also a mooselum … will vastly expand those concessions and add vastly more to the bunch already in effect.

    I was initially skeptical about Trump’s Christianity because it seemed when asked about his faith he had no idea what it meant to be a Christian. It seemed he like many Americans classified themselves as being Christian because their parental upbringing or just because they were American. One can believe many things about Jesus (historical person, good moral teacher, even that he was the Messiah) without coming into a saving relationship. No less than Satan himself believes Jesus to be the Son of God but no one would accuse him of being a Christian. My pastor sometimes says “just because you eat at McDonald’s doesn’t mean you are a hamburger”. I came across an article recently by no less than “Focus on The Family” founder, Dr. James Dobson talking about Donald Trump relatively recent Christian conversion by a well known businessman. Dr. Dobson was one of many prominent Christian leaders who were invited to a meeting with Trump and he came away with this conclusion. There are not many individuals I have more respect for than Dr. Dobson. It is his opinion that Donald Trump was led to Christ recently. See the following article from Charisma magazine.

      Thank you for your comment and the link Ray. I had reset my computer yesterday and for some reason can’t open some links, but I’ll work on it today and will get to it when I figure out what I did wrong.
      I am somewhat familiar with Dr. Dobson’s “witness” to Trump’s conversion. Some Christians have sought to debunk Dr. Dobson’s claim (for some unknown reason … except to me). Here’s an example of what I mean …
      The following is from Talk Wisdom blog … (Christine Watson is the owner and a blogging friend of many years, though the Trump thing has set a minor wedge in our “relationship.”)
      I’m going to try to separate her stuff from my final comment
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      “When Trump met with many evangelical leaders a while back, there was some speculation that Trump may now be “a baby Christian.” Well, I read Marsha West’s recent column over at Renew America (see the links within for explanations of what she is claiming) entitled, “James Dobson reveals who he believes led Donald Trump to Christ,” and I wasn’t really comforted by what I read there.”

      James Dobson starts off by writing:

      Only the Lord knows the condition of a person’s heart. I can only tell you what I’ve heard. First, Trump appears to be tender to things of the Spirit. I also hear that Paula White has known Trump for years and that she personally led him to Christ. Do I know that for sure? No.

      So…who is Paula White?

      “It is no secret that Paula White is a WoF prosperity preacher. Sad to say that any person that rejects the true Gospel of Christ and embraces WoF’s false health & wealth gospel, as she does, is not a regenerate (born again) Christian. In fact, those who have bought into WoF beliefs are caught up in a cult. WoF is not historic orthodox Christianity – not even close! Its teaching on faith is right out of the New Age playbook:”

      Faith is a tangible

      force

      . This

      force

      is released through the spoken word, thus name-it-and-claim-it. When we speak words of faith,

      power is discharged that will accomplish our desires. Through faith we can have health, wealth, success – anything we want!

      Moreover…

      “Alleged laws of the universe can be manipulated independent of God. Does this mean God is subject to the laws He created? According to word-faith theology, yes.”
      ~~~
      “The prosperity “gospel.”

      *Sigh*….

      “Sounds like something that Trump would embrace because he lives in prosperity and “The Art of the Deal” is his gospel! I’m not saying that there is anything wrong with this businessman’s success, but such success is only temporal. “You can’t take it with you” as we all know, and one day he will stand before Jesus Christ either at the Great White Throne Judgment (if not saved)” or the Judgment Seat of Christ (if he is saved and redeemed by the true Gospel of Christ).

      The book of Jude warns us of the “prosperity gospel” heresy and all kinds of false “prophets” who would skew individuals away from the true gospel of Jesus Christ!

      Ms. West concludes her essay:

      And if it’s true that it was Paula White, as Dr. Dobson seems to think, then we can surmise from what we know about this woman, that Donald Trump did not hear the true Gospel of Christ from her. Sadly, what he heard instead was the false prosperity gospel that saves no one.

      I’ll close with a warning from the Apostle Paul:

      But the Spirit saith expressly, that in later times some shall fall away from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils, through the hypocrisy of men that speak lies, branded in their own conscience as with a hot iron…

      1 Tim. 4:1,2

      We can hold out hope that one day Trump will be genuinely born again in Christ. Until then, if he is elected this November, we can hope that God will use this secular man (in a similar manner as He used Cyrus in the Bible) to renew and rebuild our currently beleaguered Judeo-Christian nation.

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      Ray, some things on Christine’s site get somewhat difficult to follow and in the above commentary I can’t tell completely where it’s Christine’s or whom she is quoting.
      However she continues on with how God can use non-Christians to fulfill His will. Click on the ‘Talk Wisdom’ link and you will see what I mean.
      Okay, having mentioned the fact that God is able to basically use anyone to accomplish His goal, who’s to say God couldn’t use a “prosperity” preacher to win a soul?
      When I said that I know the reason why the ‘debunking’ thing is going on here it is IMHO …
      The Christians such as my friend Christine who refuse to vote for Trump are simply looking for an excuse, period.
      Thanks again for commenting and don’t be a stranger here, you’re welcome any time.

      Thank you for your kind words “Cry and Howl”. As you said, saving faith can only be confirmed by God. I am always amazed how easily people are deceived just by the words of others. In the upcoming presidential election, we must choose from two obviously flawed candidates. With Hillary, we know what we will get and it will be more of the socialistic agenda of the extreme left wing. With Trump we can only hope for the best and that he is not peeing on our legs and telling us it is raining! I do not know if our country is yet pass the tipping point of history’s ashcan. I am still hopeful that our country will again experience a great awakening and turn from its’ wicked ways. If not, judgement is definitely headed our way. As Billy Graham once said, if God does not judge the United States, He owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology. Thanks again for your wisdom. Ray Andre

    May the last wall fool him
    Michael Paul Saladen

    This took a lot of love and courage on her part to stand up and denounce the Muslim organization and their doctrine of hate and carnage…She has witnessed firsthand what it means to be a slave of this tyrannical rule over people, and the evil which is deemed acceptable for Muslim and especially the Muslim men…They have the fire of what they believe to be their God, burning throughout their souls. One must question what God sends forth multitudes to dishonor the sacred vessels each of us have been gifted with?

    I am impressed by her impassioned plea for Christians to repent and seek the love of Jesus and our father. We must do so with sincere hearts and minds and ask for forgiveness for wandering astray, that we may once again join the flock. We must knock on the door of Jesus and ask him if we may enter, so that we may know the love of our Father and not forsake him..

    Our God’s soldiers, which are already here, and have been for many decades, await his coming to obey his commands…I pray that we will fill our hearts with the love of our God, and prepare ourselves for the days to come. The Lord will guide us with the knowledge and wisdom we lack to be stewards of his will. Dare not question the will of our Father, for our creator brings forth his will on earth as it is in heaven.

    She is absolutely correct that we must stand up and wake up to the very real danger of Muslim’s agenda to erase from this earth all non-believers of their Doctrine. Jihad is a holy war in their minds and hearts and will not end until they vanquish all non-Muslim;s off of the face of the earth, or they themselves be subdued by the will of our Lord, and they do not care if it takes a thousand more years to fulfill their 1400 year old quest…

    Now is a time when populations of Muslims are transported to all corners of the earth, seeking to destroy and subjugate… be not fooled by a lying lounge, for if you know the difference between right and wrong, good and evil, you are empowered with the weapon of discernment which our Lord has blessed each of his children with..

    Pray for the strength, love, courage and wisdom to use this power of discernment to remain obedient to his love and his word. Know that assimilation is not a possibility with our sworn enemy. Ask our Father for guidance that his will be done. He will not fail us. God will lead us to walk the paths he has chosen for us in the coming times and lead us to salvation. We must remain ever vigilant, faithful and steadfast in his love, and not cower to the oppressive evil which descends upon us. For our Lords love is the promise of life eternal, for our devotion and obedience…

    Be not fooled by the Leaders currently in power, who are gifted by Satin with the skill of an orator, who speaks lies, steals, cheats, murders, and subjugates for the sake of our enemy, and who is in fact the great deceiver Our Lord warns us will come…They are among us now. Many the false Prophets will attempt to seduce us into thinking incorrectly, by endorsing evil practice. Fortification of our faith, love and devotion to our Lord shall lead us to sanctuary as our love in numbers will provide strength against our enemy on the path to life eternal.

    We must draw ourselves closer to each other in the love and name of our Father from Heaven, that we may be blessed by his will. Know that his house (church) is not a sanctuary for saints, but a hospital for sinners, so that we may gather in his name and repent! For know now, that whenever, or where ever, two or more are gathered in his name, he shall be there..

    We shall unite and rise up as People who are blessed by the Love of our savior, surrendering only unto our Lord that his will be done, Our Father will unite us for the common good of all his children to defeat the powers of pure evil which have descended upon us. We pray that his unification of our love, faith, obedience and blessed skills that he has provided and blessed each of us with, shall be the sword and shield he wields for our protection, while vanquishing our enemies, if this is to be our Lords Devine Will.
