On Saturday, Nov. 7, 2020, just four days after the presidential election, the American news media decided to declare Joe Biden the winner and the president-elect of the United States.
The radical left in America have done everything in their power for the last four years to discredit and destroy President Donald Trump. They have spied. They have lied. They have cheated. They have broken laws too numerous to count. They have committed treason, trying to depose the duly elected government! And somehow, President Trump has weathered all those storms.
What the left is doing now—all this theater aimed at bullying people into accepting Joe Biden as president—is more of the same. It should come as no surprise.
By most appearances, Joe Biden will be America’s next president. But I absolutely do not believe that at all. Mr. Trump will weather this storm too. Regardless of what the media says or how things look right now, I am confident Donald Trump will remain president.
I am also certain that we are about to see some of the biggest frauds exposed perhaps ever!
Why? Because a Biden presidency is contrary to Bible prophecy.
For more than 30 years now, I have explained many biblical prophecies that describe the events that will precede the return of Jesus Christ. Most of these revolve directly around the United States and the British Commonwealth, the modern descendants of biblical Israel, and the Jewish state. (Knowing the identity of origins of America and Britain is fundamental to understanding Bible prophecy; you can learn about this truth in The United States and Britain in Prophecy.)
The Bible has a lot to say about Donald Trump and his presidency. The main prophecies are in the book of Kings and in Amos 7, and several other passages speak more generally about America under his leadership. God cannot lie! These end-time prophecies must be and will be fulfilled!
The prophecy in Amos 7 is crucial to understanding the 2020 election. It is about Mr. Trump, and much of it is yet unfulfilled!
Amos 7:7 reads, “Thus he shewed me: and, behold, the Lord stood upon a wall made by a plumbline, with a plumbline in his hand.” A plumbline is usually used in measuring a building or in construction. But God uses it differently here: to measure the destruction that is to come upon the nations of Israel, especially America. This destruction is not random. God is measuring it carefully and precisely, and in the end, it will bring about the most wonderful results imaginable.
“And the Lord said unto me, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A plumbline. Then said the Lord, Behold, I will set a plumbline in the midst of my people Israel: I will not again pass by them any more” (verse 8). This is God talking! He has warned these nations several times to try to wake them up, but they have ignored those warnings. So, He says, I’ll warn one last time!
We are living through this final warning right now!
And notice: This final warning occurs during the time of an end-time Jeroboam. “And the high places of Isaac shall be desolate, and the sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste; and I will rise against the house of Jeroboam with the sword” (verse 9). When God says, “I will not again pass by them any more,” He is talking about the time of Jeroboam.
To understand events in America right now, we must understand the identity of this Jeroboam. This end-time figure is all the way through this prophecy, from verse 9 to verse 17. As I have explained for more than four years now, this end-time Jeroboam is Donald Trump, America’s president. And these prophecies about Jeroboam have not yet been completely fulfilled, which is why Mr. Trump must remain president!
More is revealed about this end-time Jeroboam in the book of Kings, which records the history of Jeroboam i and Jeroboam ii, two kings in ancient Israel. Remember, the book of Kings is part of the former prophets; it contains prophecy for right now. And Amos 7 reveals that Mr. Trump leads America in the same spirit as these ancient kings!
When King Solomon died, the nation of Israel split in two. Jeroboam i ruled the kingdom of Israel, which was comprised of the 10 northern tribes. King Jeroboam was a bold and talented leader, but he had terrible flaws that upset God deeply.
Jeroboam’s essential sin is recorded in 1 Kings 12: “And Jeroboam said in his heart, Now shall the kingdom return to the house of David” (verse 26). He feared that the people would return to the house of David in Jerusalem. The 10 tribes had just broken away, and Jeroboam i wanted to keep them separated from King David’s throne. God had even explained the importance of the house of David to Jeroboam (read 1 Kings 11:29-39), but he rejected God’s instruction.
Jeroboam worked hard to prevent his people from looking to King David’s legacy of faith and obedience. He went so far as to establish an entirely new religious system in Israel—a religious system that oriented around himself. “Whereupon the king took counsel, and made two calves of gold, and said unto them, It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem: behold thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt” (1 Kings 12:28). Jeroboam took them right back to the false gods they had before they knew the true God!
Jeroboam then polluted the priesthood by ordaining priests from “the lowest of the people, which were not of the sons of Levi” (verse 31). He changed the dates of God’s sacred holy days so they would differ from those kept in Jerusalem (verses 32-33). He rigged the system so he could lead the people and keep them away from the house of David. That was his great sin!
Jeroboam i created a false religious system built on contempt for King David’s throne and legacy. This religion was perpetuated by all of Israel’s kings after him. Not one of Israel’s kings was righteous!
This same sin is being committed today! There is a powerful religious dimension to Donald Trump’s presidency. In many respects, his presidency is underpinned by support from religious leaders and people—but the religion of Jeroboam is false religion!
In 2 Kings 14 we learn about King Jeroboam ii, who reigned during the first half of the eighth century b.c. During the rule of this Jeroboam, Israel experienced a sensational national resurgence; it was a time of prosperity and growth. However, toward the end of his reign, the kingdom began to suffer. Within a few years of his death, Israel was brutally conquered by the mighty Assyrian Empire.
Jeroboam ii ruled in the same spirit as Jeroboam i: “And he did that which was evil in the sight of the Lord: he departed not from all the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to sin” (verse 24). King Jeroboam ii was not a righteous man. He did evil and committed the same sins against God and the throne of David that the first Jeroboam had.
Nevertheless, the Bible records something remarkable: God actually used this unrighteous king to help the nation!
Notice carefully: “He [Jeroboam ii] restored the coast of Israel from the entering of Hamath unto the sea of the plain, according to the word of the Lord God of Israel, which he spake by the hand of his servant Jonah …” (verse 25). Israel was still in a sinful state. So it wasn’t because of the repentance or righteousness of the Israelites and their king that it experienced this resurgence.
Why then did God bless the nation in ways not seen since Solomon? “For the Lord saw the affliction of Israel, that it was very bitter: for there was not any shut up, nor any left, nor any helper for Israel. And the Lord said not that he would blot out the name of Israel from under heaven: but he saved them by the hand of Jeroboam the son of Joash” (verses 26-27).
Israel was in bitter affliction—on the verge of collapse! You could say the same about America (and the rest of the nations of Israel) today: It is in bitter affliction!
Anciently, had God not intervened, the devil’s plan to blot out the name of Israel would have prevailed! But God granted mercy when Israel really didn’t deserve it. Rather than sending Israel into captivity at that time, God used this king to save Israel and give it one last age of prosperity before Assyrian conquest. God saved Israel—“by the hand of” King Jeroboam ii.
Despite the curses, and despite Jeroboam’s personal wickedness and the nation’s sins, Jeroboam ended up reigning 41 years! He was the longest-reigning king in the northern kingdom’s history. While most other kings died by intrigue or betrayal, Jeroboam did not suffer from such violence and curses. The nation experienced relative strength and stability, even prosperity. This resurgence was not because of any personal greatness or leadership skill by Jeroboam. It was because God took pity on Israel in its affliction. It was because God did not want the name of Israel blotted out. It was because God saved Israel!
2 Kings 14:26-27 show that God used Jeroboam ii as “a savior.” This is also true of the modern-day Jeroboam. It is a temporary salvation, just as it was under Jeroboam ii before Assyria finally conquered the nation. Still, God uses this man to ensure Satan and the men he uses do not blot out the name of Israel! And this job is not yet finished!
The modern Jeroboam doesn’t know any of this, but the prophecy in Amos 7 shows that God will explain it to him before it’s over. We have to get this message to him, and we haven’t done so yet. This is another reason I am confident Jeroboam is not going to disappear from the scene!
2 Kings 14:26 speaks of “the affliction of Israel, that it was very bitter.” As there was anciently, there are forces “afflicting” Israel, seeking to bring it down. These forces attacking America today are terribly destructive—and the worst of them are within the nation. They want to destroy traditional America, especially its Judeo-Christian heritage and its history with God. (My free booklet America Under Attack explains this.)
Looking at this modern-day Jeroboam, you have to say God gave Israel a “savior”—at least to the extent that He wouldn’t let these enemies bring down the nation. Donald Trump has been blocking this movement to “blot out the name of Israel [which includes America] from under heaven.”
Is his job finished? No, it isn’t. So I don’t believe at all that he will depart from the scene! I still believe these prophecies are 100 percent accurate.
This means this nation is about to be shocked. I believe you are going to see frauds exposed like you’ve never even imagined! In a sense, you could say the left is fighting against God and God’s prophecy! Who do you suppose will win that battle?
In fact, prophecy shows that many earthshaking events are certain to happen in the next few years. We are going to see things unfold that will astound us perhaps every week!
I don’t know exactly how this will play out, but I believe God is allowing it to happen this way to ensure that the evil and corruption in America are exposed!
There is a spiritual dimension to what the radical left is doing that we must also understand.
The prophecy in Revelation 12:7-9 speaks of a war in heaven in which Satan and his demons were cast down to Earth. This happened in the end time. Now they are all confined here, and you see evidence of Satan’s influence increasing all the time. In verse 9, the devil is referred to as “the great dragon … which deceiveth the whole world.” Satan’s deceptions are incredibly potent!
Verse 10 calls Satan “the accuser of our brethren … which accused them before our God day and night.” Satan continually keeps grinding out his hatred! Verse 12 shows that the devil is in a rage because he knows his time is short. The way he views it, he has nothing to lose.
Satan’s goal is to blot out the name of Israel “from under heaven”—from all over the Earth! That is his passion! And America is the superpower among the end-time nations of Israel, so he has a special hatred for America and is working furiously to destroy it.
The devil is ultimately the one behind what is happening. He is inspiring the radical left. This election fraud shows how determined and hate-filled he is. Nobody can stop him but God, and this world has not learned that.
The mainstream media insist there is “no evidence” the Democrats tried to steal this election. This is patently false: There is plenty of evidence. But it is also absurd when you think about what the left has been doing for the past several years! You would have to be naive not to think they are committing great frauds with this election.
Just look at the way it all happened: Several of the states President Trump was winning on election night simply stopped counting for four or five hours. They were all synchronized. I believe Democrats were beginning to see that they didn’t have enough votes—so they had to find a way to get them.
Then, as mail-in ballots were counted, everything changed. Those states all ended up switching over to former Vice President Biden. Isn’t that amazing?
Mail-in ballots open the door for terrible fraud. Did you know that among the 27 countries in the European Union, 17 ban mail-in voting except in very rare cases? They know how susceptible such ballots are to fraud. Yet Democrats have used the coronavirus pandemic as a pretext to encourage as much mail-in voting as possible—and even to extend deadlines past Election Day. I truly believe they did that to enable themselves to steal this election—and I say that without apology! They have a long history of using voter fraud to sway elections.
A great deal of disturbing evidence has been emerging of voting irregularities and fraud—and it always favors Joe Biden! Yet many Republicans and supposedly impartial journalists speak as though there is nothing to be concerned about. They say everything was above board and that Donald Trump should concede. This shows shocking naivety and delusion!
Just remember what the Democrats and leftists have done in the past! The Steele dossier was nothing but lies created by the radical left. For three years they used it as “proof” that Donald Trump was a Russian agent—and they knew from beginning to end that it was nothing but lies! So do you think they wouldn’t steal some votes? I would be shocked if they didn’t! That report proved to be treasonous. Now they have moved on to something perhaps even more treasonous! These are crimes that must be brought to justice!
The Left’s Goal
Many on the left want a civil war. Some have already declared war! They certainly want to bring the nation to the point where they can pounce on their opponents and destroy them. And they are going all out!
We don’t have to speculate on the goals of the left. They are pretty outspoken if you pay attention! For example, Mark Zaid was the attorney for the cia employee who “blew the whistle” on President Trump for his phone call to Ukraine. On Jan. 30, 2017—just 11 days into President Trump’s term—Zaid tweeted this: “#coup has started. First of many steps. #rebellion. #impeachment will follow ultimately. #lawyers.” Later that day he tweeted, “#coup has started. As one falls, two more will take their place. #rebellion #impeachment.” This was one of the left’s highly placed lawyers speaking openly of a coup—trying to overthrow the government!
America has changed like you have never seen it change—in just months or even weeks—into a different country! It is not the country it was a couple years ago—or even at the start of 2020! And if you were to get the wrong leader in charge, things would quickly grow far worse because there are powers behind him that want to rule this nation—and rule it their way! They don’t want freedom. They tell you what to do, and you have to do it, or else!
The left doesn’t want opposition. They want tyranny! That is because they are following Satan the devil, who has a stranglehold on them!
Powerful tech companies and corporations are willing to spend billions of dollars to get what they want. They’re not concerned about the will of the people. One billionaire spent $100 million in Florida to beat Donald Trump. $100 million! They spent a total of $7 billion in this campaign—compared to the Republicans’ $4 billion, which itself is a lot of money! The media, the high-tech industry, the educators, Hollywood—all these people have tremendous wealth—and they’re all together! And if they can win it with money and cheating or any other way, they will do it!
Following the election, the tech companies censored and even deleted posts and messages that questioned the results. This is now common! What an affliction on our nation!
They get away with it so easily too. After all, none of them ever seem to get punished for their transgressions. After the horrible Mueller ordeal, was anybody sent to jail? I haven’t seen it—yet they committed treason! There may be investigations, but these drag on, and after a while people forget about it. So the crimes go unpunished. If you repeatedly let criminals go, they come to think they can do anything and get away with it! And they are just about right!
But maybe God has something in store for them that they don’t know about!
It is stunning to me how few Republicans are backing President Trump. Those who don’t are truly ignorant of what is happening in this nation.
Donald Trump certainly has his problems, and God sees those—but He chose him as a savior, temporarily, for America! People don’t understand that and fail to recognize what is really happening!
I also marvel that so many people voted for the radical platform the Democratic Party has embraced. They want to encourage illegal immigrants, even giving them free health care, welfare and education. They want to ravage the economy to combat “climate change.” They accept radical racist ideals and far-out sexual practices. They applaud lawlessness and a spirit of insurrection. It doesn’t take much to understand that in a democracy, when that many people are so ignorant, it is over. This nation is lost, virtually.
In the January 2019 Trumpet issue, I wrote an article titled “Is America’s Supreme Court in Bible Prophecy?” This article explained how Amos 7 prophesied that Mr. Trump would gain firm control of the U.S. government and, specifically, his success in appointing judges to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Amos 7:12-13 describe a religious man speaking to Jeroboam and conspiring to expel the man who delivers this warning from the country. Who is this end-time “Amaziah”? He is described as “the priest of Bethel” (verse 10). Bethel is a name for God’s house, which spiritually is the true Church of God. As I explain in my booklet The Lion Has Roared, this is prophetic language for a minister who comes from the Worldwide Church of God (wcg). This church changed its doctrines completely in recent years and turned itself into a mainstream Protestant group called Grace Communion International.
Amaziah is an arrogant man who cast God’s truth to the ground after the death of Herbert W. Armstrong (Daniel 8:11-12). He is a man who lies profusely. That lying spirit plagues America today. It’s the spirit that drove those working against us in a six-year court battle with the wcg. And it is the spirit that will motivate those who oppose us in the scenario described in Amos 7.
This prophecy has not yet been fulfilled; this is another reason Mr. Trump must remain president. This means we should expect Amaziah, this false priest, to come on the scene soon!
But notice what Amaziah tells God’s prophet, on behalf of Jeroboam: “O thou seer, go, flee thee away into the land of Judah, and there eat bread, and prophesy there: But prophesy not again any more at Bethel: for it is the king’s chapel, and it is the king’s court” (Amos 7:12-13).
Here is what I wrote in that 2019 article: “‘Prophesy not again any more at Bethel,’ Amaziah says, referring to the capital city—we could liken that to Washington, D.C., today—‘for it is the king’s chapel, and it is the king’s court.’ When this says “the king’s chapel,” it is talking about a place of worship that belongs to the king.” So the “king’s chapel” refers to Mr. Trump’s powerful religious following, and the “religious” nature of his presidency in general.
What does “king’s court” mean? That same 2019 article answers. “[T]he word ‘king’s’ is a different Hebrew word than when he talked about ‘the king’s chapel.’ It means kingdom. The King James Version margin reads, ‘house of the kingdom.’ Wycliffe translates it, ‘house of the realm.’ This is not a religious entity, it is something else: the nation’s house. It is not something that is following Jeroboam, yet it favors him. It is helping him in some way. What is this referring to prophetically? I believe this non-religious entity, the kingdom’s house, is referring to the United States Supreme Court.”
Later in the article I prophesied: “I believe this prophetic account in Amos 7 implies that there is a conservative advantage in the Supreme Court, one that favors Jeroboam.”
Fast-forward to today. Less than two months before the election, on the evening of Sept. 18, 2020, something remarkable happened: Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died. Her death shocked the nation and caused a political and judicial sensation. It also created an opportunity for President Trump. Within days, the president nominated Amy Coney Barrett to fill the vacant seat on the court. Barrett is a constitutional originalist and very conservative. On October 26, she was confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
What a remarkable turn of events: Justice Barrett was the third judge appointed by Mr. Trump to the U.S. Supreme Court! Her appointment just days before the election gave conservatives a significant advantage in the court. I believe it also marked the fulfillment of the prophecy in Amos 7:13!
Justice Barrett’s nomination could prove decisive in this election and to Mr. Trump remaining president!
After the election, attorneys across America, including Mr. Trump’s lawyers, filed lawsuits in several states alleging voter fraud. It is likely that some of these cases will end up in the Supreme Court. I don’t know, but I would think the Supreme Court is going to have to rule on this election eventually. The fact that Justice Barrett will be there when that happens increases the odds that the law will be upheld! And that would make all the difference for the president. I would think that is the way God is going to solve this, but He may have other ideas.
The prophecy in Amos 7 strongly indicates that Mr. Trump and the man who fills the role of Amaziah will reject God’s warning and then use the Supreme Court to expel God’s Church from America. This prophecy has not happened—which is another reason why Mr. Trump must remain president!
A Light Always
When Jeroboam i was on the scene, God sent the Prophet Ahijah to tell him that He would strip the kingdom of Israel from Solomon and give Jeroboam rule over 10 tribes (1 Kings 11:29-35). Then He told Jeroboam, “And unto his son will I give one tribe, that David my servant may have a light alway before me in Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen me to put my name there” (verse 36).
Wherever you find King David’s throne, you find a light! Wherever you find someone declaring the message about the throne of David, you will find understanding, truth and hope—light! What a blessing and miracle to understand these prophecies and this truth! Thank God for the light of this word!
In verse 37, God promised Jeroboam tremendous blessings if he would just obey the way David did. Anciently, King Jeroboam and Israel would have been blessed enormously if they only would have followed David’s example; if they would have upheld the religious practices and the law established by God through King David!
Today, God delivers the same message to Donald Trump and America! We must submit to God and His laws and message as they are shared and declared through the throne of David! The light of David’s throne continues to shine brightly!
The question is: Will we let it shed light on our flaws and sins and stir us to repentance?
We all must realize that no politician can save America. The Republicans cannot save this nation. President Trump cannot. Only God can! We must see Him at work in what is happening here. He is going to use these events to expose the evil and corruption in America. And He will ensure that every one of His prophecies is fulfilled. Just watch!
Something has to happen, and for God to fulfill this prophecy, it will have to be a miracle. But He is a God of miracles! And He is the one who ultimately places leaders in power (Daniel 4:17, 25; Psalm 75:6-7; Romans 13:1).
These events are going to shock a nation that has already turned the page on our current president. But they should not shock you. Watch what happens, and when this comes to pass you will be able to recognize God’s guiding hand!
