How and why where
the leaders judged
Never in my memory have we had such confusion in the prophecies given regarding Donald Trump's reelection. Never in the 45 years of knowing the Lord have I seen prophets, leaders, and a large swath of the evangelical community apply almost messianic hopes on a man. The belief that Donald Trump or any man will cleanse America through a dominionist Christian Nationalistic agenda, that will lead to the coming of the Messiah should give us pause when considering causes for God's possible judgment. But there are other areas to pause and consider.
The fact is, well known credible leaders and prophets were wrong, and because to whom much is given, much is required, it always brings a parallel level of accountability. We cannot just ignore it. The purpose is not to condemn or quickly label someone a false prophet. No, in love, we know being human is to ere. But lessons are to be learned in the wake of all the mispredictions that has left confusion, distrust, and often, casting our Apostolic and Prophetic ministry aside completely.
Our lessons always come from the Bible.
In the November vision and the visions that followed I received two words; leader were to be judged, and seduction of power and a dominionist spirit. At the time, I did not understand what these terms meant in the context of this season, as I had no prior knowledge nor any particular interest in them; “dominionism” and “seduction of power.” I believe the following became the spiritual leaders' failures around Donald Trump and the prophets, Apostles, and leaders in the body. Primarily, three sins or rules were overlooked by the prophets and leaders.
The sin of Omission: Failure to do something when one can and ought to do."
First, the Coronavirus was a national pandemic that called for a national response from Trumps' administration, spiritual counsel, including the Apostles and Prophets in his orbit. Because they have been given influence to the highest office of the Land; The President, Christian senators, congressman, and the spiritual advisors around the President lost the heart of God in a critical area at a critical time. Politics and party-positioning took precedence over mercy and concern for the hundreds of thousands dying. When there should have been an outcry of empathy, sympathy, and measures taken to comfort and ensure his people, their inaction and silence made them complicit in the sin of omission, even turning masks into a political statement as one example that endangered many for political gain. God put Donald Trump in the office with a plethora of powerful spiritual leaders who had the President's heart, mind, and ear. Proportionately, accountability comes with it.
Was this God?
Was this the way for a Christian President to act, who has been given so much? Particularly since God had raised watchmen stationed around Him who are called by My Name. Never in recent history has the White House seen such a gathering place of kingdom-leaders, men and women of God speaking into the President, praying for him, and gathering for prayer and worship. THE LORD SAYS: YOU HAVE LACKED MERCY, SOUND JUDGMENT, AND COMPASSION.
Certainly, past Presidents have had their own spiritual leaders. Billy Graham was the greatest of spiritual leaders to Presidents and leaders of nations. But these watchmen, Prophets, Apostles, and Political leaders were bent upon their own dominion, power, to sit upon thrones over many waters. So, as a shepherd can fail his sheep, they failed the horse they sat upon that it could not complete his journey. The beast that I saw had such promise left inside her.
I saw that the beast was given keys to unlock former strongholds, flood historical dry valleys, but then the keys turned rusty with a single rain and fell to the ground. How many dry bones could have come to life? Mercy! Mercy! Mercy! Cries heaven; dominion, dominion, dominion cried these foolish warriors. The Coronavirus was like a mercy ship that sailed into the harbor of Washington and to the Capitol's front doors, the door of every republican and church, and Leader. Yet again, they showed no compassion, empathy, or concern for the people they represent—the sin of omission. They chose a dominionist posture for their own agenda over the people's needs, party over the people, partisanship instead of mercy. The prophets, the Spiritual advisors around the President, did not council him to demonstrate God's heart for the suffering in this COVID-19. They tarnished the image of God and tainted the testimony of a true Christian witness through their lack of compassion, silence, and unwillingness to bring aid and relief. The sin of omission!
Matthew 25 offers another example regarding the sin of omission. Verses 44-45 note, "Then they also will answer, saying, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?' Then he will answer them, saying, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.'" Here Jesus clearly indicates that our lack of action can be considered sinful.
John 3:17-18 offers yet another example: "But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and truth." John commanded those who follow Jesus to live in ways that show this love to others.
Matthew 5:16 "In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven." Such actions bring glory to God and point others to God, who may not yet know Him. Galatians 6:9 adds, "And let us not grow weary of doing good, for, in the due season, we will reap if we do not give up."
3. THEY ACTED AS SODOM, "who despite all HER immorality, she grew fat and prospered but ignored the needy"Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had pride, excess of food, and prosperous ease, but did not aid the poor and needy." Ezekiel 16:49 ." God said enough is enough. You have mishandled the station to which I have given you. You have mishandled the seats of power. How can America fall as you have to the sin of Sodom? Men have to lead you downward, men with a form of godliness but not power (Love, Mercy, Care). They were more interested in sitting upon thrones upon many waters. They have sinned Sodom as the dying and sick are at their feet.
"The Lord says, away from me, go and tend the vineyard that I have given you that I will make room for another, men and women that you have not heard of. Tender shoots will now grow up as you did. They will not forget the Master's voice, the poor, and the needy. They will not be overcome by the prosperity that I sent, or when their storehouse is filled, they will give to many."But the LORD reigns forever, executing judgment from his throne, and He judges the world with justice and rules the nations with fairness."
4. Sin of Presumption: The prophets and leaders presumed that God would never allow the Democrats to win. That their mission and place was so fixed in the Father's will that there was no room for anything else. The Presumed incorrectly--the sin of Presumption! No longer could the prophets and leaders be objective. As a result, many ministries, prophets, and leaders will be busy dealing with the confusion left in its wake, and surely, most will blame Satan. Few will take responsibility and take a contrite stand.
In fact, the true men of God that emerge will be those that take responsibility and are humbled. Prophets can never speak presumptuously as they have during this time, as Deuteronomy 18:22 states. The prophets spoke a populist message to a populist crowd. In their own arrogance they forgot to look and hear from ME, says the Lord, before they spoke; They turned their backs towards me when I was waiting and standing before them; they forgot that I am the tongue and the lips of the prophets. They forgot, “He who controls the course of world events removes kings and sets up other kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the scholars” (Daniel 2:21). So they have spoken and acted Presumptuously.
5. Seduction of Power: Many evangelical leaders elevated Donald Trump as the man that will bring about a Christian nation by taking dominion over laws and institutions to ultimately bring about an end-time revival that will lead to the return of the Messiah. Thrones were set in place, and they replaced humility with arrogance, power with servanthood, human power with the Holy Spirits' power to transform people. Rather than the power of the gospel to bring about moral change, they looked down from their self-imposed thrones believing that God chose their brotherhood of a pseudo crusader army to bring about a Christian nation for the return of the Messiah.
God says: I have not asked you to do this, which you do to seize power. I have only asked you to transform the old landscapes by my love, power, healing, bind up the brokenhearted, ruling fairly and judicially, and building up at this time the faint of heart. Could I not send another plague to reveal more of your falling? No, I say no, enough is enough." They have all been judged and remove because they put in place their own thrones by the seduction of a dominionist spirit, thereby making themselves large and God small. Combined, God removed thrones set up, and He gave power to another to bring compassion, healing that will bind up the wounded and the broken-hearted.
“You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. ‘You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead, they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:13-16).
