Today we’re going to revisit a dream the Lord gave me on January 5. It was the first Tuesday of the new year, just like today. Turnaround Tuesday!
In the dream, Donald Trump had just won the contract to restore the Department of Homeland Security. I had no idea then how many keys for today were embedded within the details of this dream. Lets explore one key today, and others in future postings.
Trump and Racial Contention
Fueled by the media, many have been predicting that Donald Trump will exacerbate racial prejudice during his presidency. This has led to a tremendous upsurge in anger, suspicion and division both in the world and in the body of Christ. Many leaders have actually forbidden any discussions of the elections from their pulpits.
As a leader who has stood for God’s desired turnaround in our land, I have been very grieved over this. Because from the beginning, what I have perceived prophetically is exactly the opposite. In a dream a year ago today, the first Tuesday of the new year, the Lord alerted me to His desire for Donald Trump to become President. And it brought a tremendous open door for Black Americans.
I want to emphasize this. In my heart and mind, the two have been twined from the beginning.
And this perspective was reinforced this past September when I saw a photo of Donald Trump receiving a Jewish prayer shawl from Bishop Wayne T. Jackson. Immediately I recognized Bishop’s intention. And Holy Spirit clearly spoke to me, “Never forget that Donald Trump was mantled for the presidency by a black pastor from Detroit.”
This November, four days before the election, I had the honor of meeting Bishop Jackson and presenting him and his congregation with a special gift. He told me about the terrible persecution they experienced after welcoming Trump to their church. And he confirmed to me privately that the Lord had indeed asked him to mantle Donald Trump for our nation’s highest office.
With the mantling, Bishop Jackson also gave Trump a Jewish Heritage Bible and compelled him to stand for God’s heart for Israel. As of Christmas, you can see how history has already been impacted in context with Bishop’s firm admonition regarding God’s covenant land!
By the way, Donald Trump chose Bishop Jackson to join Franklin Graham and other faith leaders to give the benediction at his inauguration. It is only fitting that this black pastor from inner city Detroit, whom God chose to mantle the next president of the United States, is concluding Donald Trump’s commissioning service into the presidency.
A door has opened, and God Himself is bearing witness.
“You Believe You Will Find Division, But You Will Find Unity”
Let me share just one more thing before we review the dream from a year ago. Over New Years weekend, the Holy Spirit spoke to me clearly again regarding the transition from President Obama to President Trump.
“You believed you would have unity, and you found division,” I heard the Lord say. “Now you believe you will have division, but you will find unity.”
May the word of the Lord prove true. Below is our posting from a year ago, the first Tuesday of 2016.
Dream—Trump Wins—Posted Jan. 5 (First Tuesday)
45 Weeks to 45th President! Our Thrones Belong to Christ
Remember also that exactly 45 Tuesdays from now, our 45th President will be elected. Therefore we are also taking time every Tuesday through November 8 to pray for the elections.
Turnaround Tuesday! The thrones of this nation belong to Jesus Christ through covenant. Yet if you review history and our present world from the plumbline of covenant, you can clearly see how many of America’s leaders have invoked demonic powers and false ideologies to lay claim to these thrones. This is why we need a turnaround.
Note to self—Satan is a dictator. And every point of access given by humanity will become a throne of dictatorship unless it is reversed. Leaders tied to demonic powers have empowered dictatorship time and again in our nation, even bypassing the balance of power established as law by our Constitution.
Beloved, that’s not the freedom our forefathers lived and died to give us. It’s truly time for a turnaround. And as in the days of Pharaoh, God is raising up a revolutionary movement with one united cry—NO KING BUT JESUS!
Turnaround Tuesday… Trump?
Throughout this prayer project we will be posting “real-time revelation” as the Lord grants it. This morning I had a very important dream. And I don’t believe it’s coincidence we are on our 45th Tuesday until the 45th presidential election, on our first Turnaround Tuesday.
The dream featured Donald Trump. Please note I am by no means advocating or endorsing any political candidate. Nor am I saying the Lord has made clear His choice for a political candidate. From my perspective, I believe each candidate in the running has the potential to be a great president, but each must overcome key challenges to embrace the greatness the Lord is offering them. For instance, Ben Carson must truly find his voice. Hilary Clinton must recover her genuine devotion. Marco Rubio must recover his compass. Ted Cruz must expand his vision.
And Donald Trump must become a statesman. My opinion only.
That said, here’s the dream. I was working at my former job as a contractor at the National Emergency Training Center. For five years, I served as a graphic designer and photographer there for the Department of Homeland Security/ FEMA.
And in the dream, it was Christmas-time, and Donald Trump had just won the contract for the center.
Trump came into the office with a few of his colleagues and looked around. The senior employees, including me, were acknowledged but not spoken to. I honestly felt insulted.
Insulted by Donald Trump. Imagine that. This dream does have some authenticity.
Donald Trump, the new contract manager, then took my son Jonathan and went to another wing of the building. Jonathan never worked at the training center, but in the dream he was a newcomer to the contract. The next generation.
I watched through a window as Trump and my son worked to renovate offices that were once occupied by great employees, but now were held by very lazy people. One of them was even tied to the occult.
When Trump came back through, he again spoke nothing. I reached out to him and said, “You must restore Christmas!” He just looked at me, almost amused, and nodded. My son, following behind, replied “Dad, that’s just what we’ve been doing over there.”
As we were talking, former colleagues began to come back through the doors. One was a bright, big-spirited African American woman. All the other employees greeted her with a sign by raising their elbows in the air. She raised hers in response, then stretched out her arms and locked her hands together as if in prayer. She was beaming as she was welcomed back to the job she was forced out of!
As she and others began to come back through the doors, I realized in the dream that Donald Trump was actually cleaning out government offices and re-hiring excellent former employees that had been unfairly treated in previous seasons, primarily for their faith.
Then I woke up. Let me share a few brief points, then I’ll leave the interpretation up to you.
Homeland Security Top Priority
The dream by no means openly conveyed that Donald Trump had become President. Specifically in the dream, Trump had won a contract for the Department of Homeland Security.
What is God saying? I believe a firm stand regarding the security of our homeland is essential to appeal to America’s voters, whatever the party. The security of our homeland is top priority.
Is this good or bad? Both. I do believe it was prophetic that the location for the contract was the “National Emergency Training Center.” Because we are in a season of training, where competencies and strategies are being refined to better answer the real-life challenges ahead.
Storms are brewing that threaten not only our nation but the entire western world. And previous training has uncovered a terrible potential. If we’re not careful, the quest for the security of our homeland could become the primary force that pushes us into dictatorship.
As Benjamin Franklin noted, “He who sacrifices freedom for security DESERVES NEITHER.” It’s time to find the balance.
The dream also conveyed how many capable and industrious workers have been treated wrongfully, recently especially, for their embrace of Jesus Christ. The majority of believers I connected with during my time in government contracting were African American. They were very simply the strongest intercessors in their spheres.
I believe we’re going to see a resurgence of devoted believers, competent above their peers like Daniel, returning to government offices. They’re going to pass the tests that even the Donald Trumps of this world demand. Promotions that have been withheld will be released. YOU’RE HIRED!
You Must Restore Christmas
“You Must Restore Christmas!” There are many meanings within this simple statement. First in my heart is a statement from the Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis. When leaders become gateways for the enemy, the result is that it’s “always winter, and never Christmas.” In this respect especially, beloved it’s time for Christmas to be restored!
I also believe God is compelling all Christians to actually give themselves to restoring Christmas as a celebration that again attracts the world to Jesus. From Washington to Washington to Jerusalem!
Pray Through the Coming Shift
The final point I want to make is that by Christmas next year, a new President will have been elected. A new President will be focused on building a new team for a new government.
And it’s our job to pray NOW for this coming shift. First that it will fully occur. Secondly that the seats of authority from the President down will be filled with men and women of great capability and unyielding faith. Because that’s exactly what it will take to access the opportunities and overcome the challenges we are faced with.
Re-constitution. Turnaround. No King but Jesus!
