Donald Trump’s Inaugural Address was seventeen minutes, shorter than most folks thought it would be. The speech was not meant to please politicians and the movers and shakers on Capitol Hill. It was a talk, that challenged the Clinton and Bush dynasties as weak and anemic. It was a speech that pleased his supporters and constituents. Ironically three former presidents from these administrations, as well as former president Jimmy Carter, were seated next to Trump as he spoke. His speech sounded similar to his campaigning, as he spoke to the people, as a Populist, caring NOT to appease the parties on either side of the aisle. His bluntness and lack of a desire to appease the leaders of the political parties, are drawing many comparisons to “Old Hickory,” Andrew Jackson. Like Jackson, Trump speaks from the heart, and never worries about fallout. My prayer is that Donald Trump NEVER becomes an appeaser, people pleaser or compromiser. In regards to Andrew Jackson, John Quincy Adams thought that Jackson’s term would lead to the dissolution of our nation and anarchy. Sound familiar? Andrew Jackson turned out to be a great president. Donald Trump is his own man, and has fooled the political prognosticators and Hollywood “elite,” who laughed at his candidacy a year and one half ago.
What Will Be The Outcome Of This Presidency?
Christian Prophecy Teacher Jonathan Cahn calls the new administration a “window.” I would agree. It is indeed miraculous that Donald Trump won the election, and the election shows the brilliance of our Founding Fathers when they established the electoral college. The popular vote would have nominated Hillary Clinton, but her base would have been limited to California, Chicago, New York, and other liberally minded municipalities. Donald Trump won thirty one states and an electoral landslide. We are blessed to have a president who advocates the Judaeo Christian ethic, and he will once again, promote the faith that this nation was founded on. The working man, the rust belt, the south, and evangelicals placed Donald Trump into office. I agree with Jonathan Cahn, and believe this is a political “Indian Summer,” with winter coming later on. The next time that ultra liberals take over this nation, I do not believe we may ever get it back. Globalism and the One World Government will one day raise its ugly head again – the Bible tells us this. Most Christians who I know, are grateful for the outcome of the election. May we pray for this presidency, and for the great principles of our faith in this nation to be espoused.
In Christ, Pastor Steve
