Isaiah 8: 18: Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.
God instructed Isaiah to give his son a specific name (“Mahershalalhashbaz”), because God’s dealing with Israel and the nations was to be encoded in the child’s name (Isaiah 8: 1 - 4); the same instruction was given to Hosea (Hosea 1: 2 - 11) in the naming of his children (“Jezreel”, “Loruhamah” and “Loammi”).
God raised-up characters at precise times in history whose names were prophetic for the events of the time they lived. “Eisenhower” and “Khrushchev” are presidents whose lives fulfilled Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of the image with feet of iron and clay.
The election of Donald Trump as America’s President is worth examination; such an examination is not being presented as doctrine but as food for thought. “Trump” is mentioned twice in the Bible (1 Corinthians 15: 52 and 1 Thessalonians 4: 16); it is the shortened form of “trumpet” and is connected to the first resurrection. Could it be that God has permitted Trump to become President to show the Bride that it is time for the last trump to sound and that She will soon be taken into Glory?
Joe Brandt’s dream (see Joe Brandt’s dream of the California earthquake) of the California earthquake records the following… “I wondered what year it was. It certainly was not 1937. I saw a newspaper on the corner with a picture of the President. It surely wasn’t Mr. Roosevelt. He was bigger, heavier, big ears.” …The dream mentions the president being a man of heavy build at the time of the earthquake which ushers in the Tribulation. Mr Trump may serve one term or he may serve two terms as President, but it does seem likely that the California earthquake will happen during his administration.
Trump is America’s 45th President; the number 45 is of importance for Genesis 45 opens with Joseph dismissing his wife to the palace, a shadow of the last trump when the Bride is raptured.
