BASEBALL PRACTICE. The horrific attacks on the Republican Congressional baseball team, practicing early Wednesday at an Alexandria park, have struck the very heart of a nation drunk on vitriol. Introspection inevitably follows the sudden sobriety this tragedy has brought. How long we reject the conscience-numbing substance will be very telling.
Because like a habitually drunk driver, our nation cannot take much more before a worse crash ensues. And that’s simply the truth.
Baseball Practice! Donald Trump Dream
On May 21, 2016, I had a dream that has proven hauntingly prophetic. Donald Trump was leading his team IN A BASEBALL PRACTICE.
This was the second of two dreams the Lord gave me to convey that Trump was His choice for President. In the dream he served as the owner, coach, and star player. But during practice he hit the ball in a way that continually advanced his team. The other players became the true stars.
Watching with Julie—Whoa!
In the dream I was watching the baseball practice with my friend Julie. Please pay attention, this is vital. Because over the past ten days we were actually visiting Julie and her husband Russ at their island home. We had written our first book Crown & Throne there. This time around, Julie and Russ left after a few days to give us room to write our second book.
And it was then that Jolene and I watched the horrific baseball practice shooting from their home. The photo documenting the flag and rainbow, as well as the ensuing picture of the flag at half mast, were both taken there.
As I commented to Julie in the dream, it is amazing how President Trump takes the pitches thrown at him and turns them into solid hits. He has an anointing from the Lord for turnaround.
Charge to Pray for Trump!
A second point I want to make is that God’s clarion charge to pray for President Trump and his administration was given through this dream. After practice, Trump walked off the field alone. Though I didn’t share it in last year’s posting, the reason they left the field was because a storm was coming. I alluded to this when I referred to Isaiah 60.
In the dream Trump then turned to me and said, “You gotta keep praying for me.”
Friends, the spiritual intensity has been greater than anything we could have imagined. I am so grateful we are walking out this calling together. And that we are committed to seeing it through!
Dramatic Season of History
Final point. We’ll explore this more ahead. But I believe the Lord is saying that the shooting at the baseball practice has become an absolute demarcation for the Trump administration. The time of practice—of harnessing skills and maturing into the office—is now over. Details of the dream hinted that we would soon be walking through one of the most dramatic seasons of American history. I believe most current controversies will no longer even be on the radar in light of what we will be facing. But the good news is THIS WILL BE A TIME OF BREAKTHROUGH AND VICTORY.
Beyond this, the dream provides very clear mandates to ensure the success of the Trump administration. Some we are already seeing, some not yet. But it’s worth it to keep praying!
Below is the entire prophetic word as published on our Lamplighter site.

DREAM WITH DONALD TRUMP—NEW THRUST OF VICTORY
Hey! Today I have good news for you. Great news. I awoke this morning from an incredible dream from the Lord. The dream conveyed a major aspect of the “turnaround window” God is making available to all of us personally, and our nation.
Amazingly, the dream included Donald Trump. The beginning of the dream had something to do with a train station, but I cannot remember the details. Then Jolene and I were in the stands of a baseball field for batting practice. The team seemed to be owned by Donald Trump, but he was also one of the players.
I wasn’t on the field. But we were friends with Trump and helped guide the team to advance. More on this in a moment.
We were observing batting practice, talking with another friend named Julie. She and her husband are mighty prayer warriors who are also successful in business. I commented to Julie, “It’s incredible that the man is 70 years old, yet hits almost every ball so strongly.” She replied “Yeah, that is so true.” I then said, “He doesn’t always hit the ball out of the park, but he always hits in the outfield, and always gets on base!”
I felt it was important to introduce Donald Trump to Julie, so I walked on the field to summon him. Only to look over and see Donald Trump already talking with Julie! I noted how he intuitively recognizes and connects with success.
Heaven’s Horses—Resolve of Fierce Delight
In the final part of the dream we were leaving the field after batting practice. I heard and felt the ground shake. Looking up I saw two white horses, strong steeds galloping right towards us on the field! One especially was looking right at me, with a look in his eyes I can only describe as a resolve of fierce delight.
My instinct was to get out of the way, but they were coming so quickly. And before I even could move, this one horse raced right to me and thrust his head into my hands and chest. I intuitively embraced him.
At that time, Donald Trump was walking by, wearing a blue blazer, tan pants and a red hat like the one he always wears which says, “Make America Great Again.” He seemed completely absorbed in thought. With the team, but walking alone.
Trump came over, nodded, smiled and said very simply, “You gotta keep praying for me.” Then I woke up.
This is the second dream the Lord has given me about Donald Trump. The first, on January 5, conveyed that he had won the presidency and was transforming Homeland Security, even hiring back Christians who had been fired by previous administrations. Black americans especially who had been fired for their faith.
Team Effort—Advancing Others to Score
Let me share with you a brief interpretation from what the Lord has shown me so far from this second dream. Trump is a figure-head for a new thrust of victory the Lord is granting our nation. This thrust of victory, this season of victory is a major facet of the “Turnaround Window” He is now opening for our land.
I believe the batting practice represents the current presidential campaign. It’s actually practice for the much greater responsibility of governing. A team is coming together, and though in the dream Donald Trump is leading it, his goal is to get on base and get others on base. Achieving victory largely depends upon the capability of the team together—the strength and synergy of each team member with each other. Gaining this victory mandates a team effort.
This was clearly shown and emphasized to me in how Donald Trump hit the baseball. He was not known so much for home runs as for his capacity to get on base—consistently advancing himself and others to score and win.
Friends, we as a nation and we as the body of Christ are being positioned by Heaven to win. Turnaround. A new thrust of victory! Breaking the cycle of paralysis where we never really lose, but never really win.
It’s time to taste victory again. It’s time to dream again about what this looks like for you. And it’s really time to embrace the synergy of a team effort for success.
Running the Race to Win
By no means am I implying we are not going to suffer setbacks or challenges. We’re probably going to face some of the most significant challenges since the days of Churchill.
But I am declaring prophetically we shall overcome unto victory. It’s now in the atmosphere! Heaven’s momentum will propel us. Difficult situations will turn for the good.
In order to win we truly need to run together. And as we run, a resolve of fierce delight is overtaking our hearts
Jolene and I have personally experienced this again and again on the Glory Train journey. We are so grateful to be running with the Lord, with His angels, and with you!
Remember we are commanded to run the race to win! (1 Corinthians 9:24). As God’s glory continues to be restored, the biggest setback for many is going to be our own mindsets. Many corporately have embraced a theology of the absence of God instead of the Presence of God. Many have embraced a theology of mandatory paralysis. Therefore many don’t really run to win. Like a hamster on a wheel or a steam engine on a treadmill, many are working hard but not really going anywhere. Dreams from the Lord seem to be forgotten, the vigor of their freshness abated.
This is all changing now. Heaven’s horses are released and running! The angelic hosts of the Lord Jesus Christ have been re-activated for breakthrough in the land. We are in a recovery of momentum by the Spirit of the Lord. So run to win!
Arise and shine, mighty men and women of God. Your light has dawned. And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you! Yes in the world there is indeed a new threshold of darkness. Gross darkness. But the Lord is rising on you. And His glory will even appear on you! Kings will come to the brightness of your rising (Isaiah 60).
And they will discover, just like you, that there is truly NO KING BUT JESUS.
