Os Hillman, the right-wing preacher behind the dominionist “Reclaiming the Seven Mountains” website, took to Charisma magazine today to ask the question that has been on everyone’s minds: “ Is God using Donald Trump to wake up the nation?”
“Only God knows the answer to that,” Hillman vaguely concludes, while suggesting that Trump through his “prophetic voice” may be the American equivalent of King Cyrus, the Persian ruler who liberated the Jews. Hillman writes that “God is using” Trump “to uncover the veil of the current political leadership and culture in America to show us the corrupt nature of what is under that veil” and “bring the nation back to some semblance of sanity.”
Hillman also writes that “God seems to be using Fox News to bring light to moral injustices.”
“Fox News has become a prophetic mouthpiece to call the nation back to some sense of moral behavior,” he gushes. “They are bringing attention to issues that the anti-God liberal press refuses to own up to.”
I believe part of this is that God is using him to uncover the veil of the current political leadership and culture in America to show us the corrupt nature of what is under that veil.
Trump is articulating what we all felt was under that veil—deception, lying, lack of accountability and pandering to what is politically correct. Trump is seeking to represent something that is the exact opposite.
Now, along comes Donald Trump. He is espousing a new way of operating because he is sounding a trumpet to the nation that our nation is broken and needs to be fixed. He is becoming a new prophetic voice, albeit not necessarily spiritual, but certainly based on truth. What are those values?
Stop pandering—start solving problems. The first problem he is speaking out about and committed to fixing is our failed immigration policy. He is calling out all the politicians who refuse to recognize the problem that our open borders have created and they have been unwilling to do anything about. Trump is proposing specific action steps that involve accountability from Mexico.
Fox News has become a prophetic mouthpiece to call the nation back to some sense of moral behavior. They are bringing attention to issues that the anti-God liberal press refuses to own up to.
Recently Fox News exposed things like the flood of dangerous immigrants into so-called "Sanctuary Cities," giving proven murderers sanctuary.
They are sounding the moral outrage over Planned Parenthood's selling of body parts. God seems to be using Fox News to bring light to moral injustices. Yet, they are a minority voice in the world of media.
I do not know how God is going to use Donald Trump in the nation. Will He use him like He used Cyrus in the Old Testament? He was a secular king, but ruled righteously. King Cyrus was an extremely important person, because God destroyed the Babylonian empire through him, and brought a close to a 70-year punishment of the Jews that God imposed on them for their rebellion against him.
Will God use a secular businessman like Donald Trump to bring the nation back to some semblance of sanity? Can this be done without a spiritual awakening in its people? Only God knows the answer to that. However, one thing is for sure, he is stirring up the political establishment and may, at a minimum, infuse some accountability from the political leadership in this nation.
