The 2016 presidential election was many things, but it was certainly not politics as usual. The election of Donald J. Trump as our 45th president was a defining moment in American history. The earthquake at the voting booths on Election Day 2016 signaled a seismic power shift—not only from one political party to another, but from the Washington dealmakers to the American people. It was a message to the special-interest groups and left-wing career politicians who had attempted to undermine our country during eight years of the Obama administration that we had had enough.
It was such a significant event that I wrote God and Donald Trump a year after Trump's historic election. I made the case for how Trump is a unique man with a unique calling who appeared on the American political stage at a critical time in our history. It's as if God raised up this unlikely, brusque billionaire in the same way He raised up the pagan King Cyrus in the Bible, who allowed the captive Israelites to return to Jerusalem.
Cyrus fulfilled God's purposes in that hour, and now, 2,500 years later, Trump seems to be the man made for this hour. His unique personality and alpha male character traits are now being used to battle our enemies (globalists) and to defend the country, making him the ideal man to lead the charge in the battle for America's soul. As a result, Bible-believing evangelicals who ordinarily condemn the lifestyle Trump lived for many years rallied behind him in unprecedented numbers. They understood that somehow God's hand was upon this man, who may have been the only person in America who could have beaten Hillary Clinton and her corrupt political machine.
So how does this relate to us and to America? I'm writing God, Trump, and the 2020 Election a year before the next election because I believe that Donald Trump must win and will win. Every presidential cycle is a new fight, a new cause and a new opportunity for the people to decide who should lead the nation. I explain why evangelicals should support Trump for a second term based on the facts of what he has done for our base in the first term, what he will do in his second term and what is at stake for Christians if the opposing side wins.
President Trump has a vision to reverse the loss of American sovereignty and prosperity. I believe God wants America to be great because God has raised up this nation, going back to our Founding Fathers, to be a beacon of light and hope for the world. Because of our religious liberty, Christianity has flourished, allowing the gospel to be spread across the globe.
As Christians, we must consider the Christian concept of grace and how it relates to the presidency and upcoming reelection of the first man with no previous governmental or military background to hold the office. Personally, I want to look at the election, Trump and America from what I believe is God's perspective in order to help Christians (and others) see God's hand at work. Yes, I believe Donald Trump will be reelected, but I also devote an entire chapter in my new book to the serious considerations of those who say he might lose and why.
Of course, America's future is much more significant than any president's years in office—even Donald Trump's. Yet a second term for President Trump is vital to America's well-being so he can finish the job he has started and fulfill his unique calling as America's political reformer. Most media and politicians see things as Republicans versus Democrats or conservatives versus liberals. They analyze issues and events based on the personalities and agendas of the political protagonists. As the nation becomes more divided, they may see it as conflicts between the far left and the right.
However, Christians see things as spiritual in nature. We sense there is more going on than what we can see with our physical eyes. God is sovereign and has a will that is described in the Bible. Of course, man has been debating and analyzing what the Scriptures say about God's will almost since Moses brought down the Law from Mount Sinai around 3,500 years ago. The debate continues today. I believe there are spiritual forces at work that the Bible calls spiritual warfare. Most Christians realize that the people who oppose our point of view or espouse views that are leading our culture and nation toward more decadence are merely being influenced by forces they probably don't understand. The Bible calls these evil forces "principalities and powers" (Eph. 6:12).
I realize that some Christians may not agree with me, but if we can at least agree that the radical left is leading our nation into a future disaster from which there will be no turning back, then it's possible to see that Donald Trump is turning the tide. It's not all doom and gloom, however. I believe good things are happening as a result of Donald Trump's presidency.
I believe that with Trump's reelection, we can reverse the loss of America's sovereignty, prosperity and Christian influence. Every voter must understand what we face in the next election and how God's hand is involved in the current presidency. Every voter must understand what Trump will do in his second term to further conservative biblical principles and establish an outlook for a bright future. Every voter must also understand this will only happen if Christians act now and if we support Trump and vote.
I love America, and I want God's blessing for all Americans. I am passionate about seeing America pivot and return to more traditional values based on the Bible. It was insightful and eye-opening to embark on a journey to discover what is happening in our country and what is at stake in the 2020 election and beyond—and why I believe Donald Trump must be reelected and what's in jeopardy if he loses.
