Why I Am Thrilled With The 2016 Election And Candidates


Thrill and Excitement about Donald and Hillary

I’ve got to be honest here and say that I could not be more THRILLED with the flawed character of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton! From deleting classified emails, to flat out lying, to dirty locker-room talk, the excitement in my mind and heart toward the 2016 election and candidates could not be at a higher level than it is right now.

On a recent extended fast concerning the elections, I kneeled down before the Lord as I wept and said, “Father, it is so incredible that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are running for the 2016 elections. It has never been more clear that this nation NEEDS YOU than now! You are making it too easy for Your people and I thank you for that!”

I began to worship Him with singing, dancing, and shouting. In fact, the more dirt that continues to comes out on Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the more I worship Jesus Christ! Surely any sober minded Christian can see that putting our hope and trust in either one of these candidates is futile and on the verge of insanity right? WRONG!

The 2016 Prophetic Word I Released

On December 11, 2015, I released a prophetic word to the body of Christ in America called, “2016: The Lord Has a Controversy with the Church.” Below in parenthesis is a few paragraphs taken from the word back in December 2015: (The entire content can be found on my website.)

The year 2016 will be a year in the earth where the church will be tested like never before concerning her allegiance, trust, and hope in the Lord Jesus Christ and His ability to save, deliver, and lead them through the turbulent years in the earth that are ahead. Let it be known that God the Father has a CONTROVERSY with the church, as He has grown heart broken with her desire to put her dependence in men (specifically political figures) and not in His Son!

The controversy that God will have with the church in 2016 is over whether she will turn to Him or to a political figure to be their savior in the midst of crisis. Be warned, God is not pleased with allegiance to political figures, whether they be republican or democratic. I want to be clear: I am not saying that Christians should not vote in the 2016 elections, but what I am saying is that Satan is laying a tremendous trap before the American Church is 2016 and God is going to have a great controversy with those who will put their trust in a political figure or party and not in His leadership. God is looking for the Church to turn to Him and not to man as in the days of Hosea and Isaiah. We must not become consumed and driven by fear, hate, or emotions in the days ahead.

In a vision God said to me, “I did not give My people what they deserved in the 2012 election, but rather who they asked for. For they cried out for the help of men in their time of distress, just as Israel when surrounded by their enemies sought help from Egypt, so the Church when surrounded by uncertainty has reached out to mammon, men, and temporary pleasures. Where and whom shall the Church in 2016 put their allegiance, trust, and hope in? To the one who will sit in the oval office or to the One who sits above the circle of the earth?

I will not anoint a politician in 2016, but I will anoint a prophetic and evangelistic people in America to declare my uncompromised truth. These individuals will act as an abrasion to the body of Christ and cause many to wonder at the way they will conduct themselves. I am releasing stadium gatherings, solemn assemblies, and mass crusades upon America in 2016 as I release my words to the church and gather a harvest of souls. The message that will come forth will be simple, but profound, ‘Return to Me Beloved and reform your ways before it’s too late’ says your God.”

Church Leaders: Stop Campaigning for Political Figures

One of the greatest issues that God has with church leaders and prophetic voices in America right now is their incessant need to declare who is going to win the presidency or why we should vote for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. (If Donald Trump is not elected President, how many prophetic voices in America are really going to repent for missing it?) I believe God is saying to church leaders and prophetic voices right now, “Stop trying to predict who is going to win the elections and start preparing the people for the days ahead. Why do you feel such a need to defend Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton? Call people to the place of prayer and let My Spirit tell them how to cast their vote!”

I just don’t understand why Christian leaders feel the need to defend Donald Trump when his laundry gets aired. To interject some prophetic perspective here, what if God’s desires are to actually allow Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton to be exposed for the fools that they are in order to drive the people to their knees and recognize that we are beyond human remedy in America! I enjoy when people say, “I just can’t believe that in this great nation, these are the two people we have to choose from.” This is an immediate invitation for me to jump in and say, “I just can’t believe in this great nation that people actually put their trust in political figures and not in the Lord Jesus Christ.”

The “Donald Trump Guy”

After releasing a prophetic word concerning Donald Trump in July of 2015 for Charisma Magazine, I have been coined “The Donald Trump Guy” in nearly 15 states that I have preached in this year and thousands of nasty emails from across the country. I have been accused of everything from saying that he would win the 2016 election (which is FALSE) to having some type of political agenda with the influence God has given me. Neither one of these accusations are true, but nonetheless, I must confess that I do not have an allegiance to Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. In fact, in the Florida Primaries, I did not vote for Donald Trump and when he visited my city in Florida, I did not attend his rally. Did God speak to me concerning how He was going to use Donald in this nation prior to the elections? Yes. Is there anything more to it? No!

Will I Vote?

As you can see, I do not care much for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. Their character and integrity is horrendous and does not need to be defended by any Christian leaders. If this is how I really feel, then why will I vote on November 8th? The reason for me is simple: the appointment of the Supreme Court Justices in the years ahead. I’m convinced that God has allowed every stone to be turned on Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton and cause them to be raised up for such a time as this as a clear sign to the Church that now is the time to repent and turn away from our sins. Again, I am so thrilled that these two leaders are our choices. It is impossible for any sober minded Christian to truly believe that either one of these candidates are capable of upholding biblical morals and standards in America. God has cleared a path for Himself in this election and I’m grateful. As I cast my ballot this year, my hope and trust will be with the One who sits above the circle of the earth. Let’s stop campaigning for Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton and get on our faces. Turn off the internet and television and just spend time with the Father. He will show each one of us how and who to vote for. The greatest days of the Church are ahead of us. There will be great glory and crisis, a collision of light and darkness, and a shaking that we have never experienced before.

With Joy and Peace,
