Is Trump a Cyrus or a Nebuchadnezzar?
What Does the Bible Say?
By Nathan Leal
Warning – the following commentary may anger some, but it will also liberate others, because the truth is never easy. But it can set us free.
Well here we are, just a few weeks away from the next phase of the political show, or as I prefer to call it; the counterfeit coinage of the New World Order two party system.
– heads, they win.
– tails, they win.
And the people get to pull a lever while believing that it matters.
“Nathan, shame on you, you are being cynical.”
Perhaps. But I also remember what Stalin said…
And to think that Stalin said those words before computerized voting machines were around. Imagine what he could have done with those machines now. But most folks already know this stuff right? Chances are, you are smart and you are aware of their schemes. And here we are again, almost four years later, watching another presidential production. Some of the faces are different. But it’s still a production. In a few weeks, the members of the two ring circus will host their own convention.
The Republican Convention will be held in Cleveland, Ohio – July 18-21, 2016.
The Democratic Convention will be held in Philadelphia – July 25-28, 2016.
As expected, Hillary and Trump are slugging it out, accusing one another of misdeeds, and reminding the world of the other’s incompetence.
Trump’s twitter feed is a verbal missile battery that flings libelous sorties nonstop towards Hillary, the media, politicians, individuals, and all living creatures who make the mistake of questioning or disagreeing with him.
Hillary doesn’t need twitter. She has the resources of the Attorney General and the FBI on her side. Oh, and she gets to use Air Force One to fly around the country with Obama, while she campaigns on the taxpayers dime. Corruption has its perks. So does her mad temper and trail of blood.
When the press goes home, their kids hang out and discuss the next part of the production.
Meanwhile, back at the pulpit, things have become interesting in the American evangelical church. They are filled with excitement, because they believe in Trump.
And just so that we’re clear, they REALLY believe…
…or to be more precise, some of them are calling it a rescue through God’s man.
I call it delusion.
Sorry folks, there is no other way to put it! I know this is not what some want to hear. But I’m not Tony Robbins, and I’m not gonna lie to you with positive thoughts that deny reality. I’m also not going to speak falsely and lie to God’s people. Unfortunately, a strange deception and delusion has overtaken many of the evangelical leaders that are out there. And they are deceiving God’s people with words that are promising a false hope through a Donald Trump administration.
This is not new. It was common in the Scriptures for the people to deny that judgment was approaching and instead believe a false word of; peace peace.
The firemen Mark Taylor prophecy about Donald Trump has brought delusion to many people and filled them with a hope of something that is not going to take place like they are expecting. How can I be so sure? Because I know what time it is. I also know what the Bible says.
Aside from some of the prophecies about Trump, some are also claiming that he is Nebuchadnezzar or Cyrus. Another prophecy, which was made by a seven mountain dominionist is claiming that Trump has an Elijah mantle on him.
According to Scripture, the spirit of Elijah cries out for repentance and holiness. John the Baptist had it. And now a prophecy claims that Trump has it. Really? What’s even sadder is that so many believe this heresy.
The Elijah anointing is a holy and precious mantle that is only fit for an obedient servant who understands the purity and most holy righteousness of God. The Elijah anointing is for a called out messenger of God who has been redeemed by the blood of Jesus and understands the altar of repentance. They also know the horrid danger of sinful leprosy, and have experienced the cleansing hope of a contrite heart.
And to say that this mantle is on Donald J. Trump?
…From the wall I cry out – Ichabod!
When did the Church get so infected? Be astonished ladies and gentlemen, because the great robbery is now here, and this is not a trivial matter. Those who belong to Jesus need to be concerned, because the deceptive mixture of delusion is infecting the spiritual rationale of God’s people. And it appears that the invasion is complete.
Spiritual leaders have turned into hypnotized pods who are now imparting things that are not found in the Bible.
It’s happening folks. I’ve heard it on popular Christian programs that I once thought were safe. And I’ve heard it on radio programs that I once thought were True.
Should I shut up? Does voicing my disapproval mean that I am a troublemaker?
Do I need to keep these things to myself?
The answer to these questions is – “no, no, … and for the cause of Christ…. No!”
Someone has to say it. And you know what folks? It’s okay to say it. If you belong to Jesus you are expected to say it. And if you have to eyes to see, I encourage you to say it!
The lies that are being told right now defy excuses. Especially, if they are coming from those in leadership. And there’s a good chance, that by now, you know who some of them are.
I cannot be a part of it and I have to say something about it. But I must warn you that this report may not give warm fuzzies.
Nevertheless I have to share the truth. I have been up on the wall for almost 10 years. And during that time, my message has not changed. It has been consistent, with the theme that warned the church that judgment was coming. That has not changed. The message has not changed. The Holy Ghost has not changed. God has not changed. Therefore, the arrival of Donald J. Trump does not change the warning message of judgment.
But for some reason, some of the voices out there don’t get it. Well, actually there is a reason. It is called confusion and a lack of discernment. Another reason is the lack of biblical end time literacy.
So let’s talk about it.
What time it is?
We are entering the days of Elijah, which means Bible prophecy is being fulfilled. For the child of God, it is very important to understand the components of the season.
Jesus said in Matthew 5:18 “For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.”
The “jot” is the the smallest letter in the Hebrew alphabet. The “tittle” is the small decorative point like the dotting of the “i,” and the crossing of the “t.”
This meant that every portion of His Word is true. This includes every verse, every sentence, every word, every dot or accent. The Word of God is not a suggestion or an opinion. The biblical prophecies and principles in His Word never waver. They are established and never deviate. This includes the theology of judgment.
Now folks, it is very important to get a hold of this. God is very clear about judgment.
1. It is real.
2. It follows scriptural principles and rules.
3. Understanding judgment is vital to knowing God.
“Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mightyman glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.”
Jeremiah 9: 23-24
The verse above makes it clear that is it important to understand judgment, unfortunately, many of today’s evangelical leaders do not understand biblical history, or God’s judgment. And as a result, they are feeding God’s people with artificial promises that are based on preposterous theology that is similar to common core biblical illiteracy.
I know these words are harsh, but a portion of the American evangelical leadership is leading God’s people astray. This is no small matter, because the end result will be significant for American Christians when it fails. I also see that the blow-back will shipwreck the faith of a lot of people.
What type of blow-back?
1. A Hillary victory in the election. If this happens, some of the people who believed the firemen prophecy will be left embarrassed because they may have promoted the prophecy themselves and told friends and family about it with assurance. If Hillary wins, Satan will use it as an opportunity to bring doubt into the faith of many.
2. A Trump victory that fails to fulfill the “America will be rescued” prophecies about him. The failure of the prophecy will reveal itself over time. If Trump wins, there will be exuberant celebration at first. But when Trump fails to accomplish the prophetic promises, the disappointment will grow. The failure will take longer to reveal itself, because some may say he has up to four years, or even eight years to accomplish the prophetic promises, but by then, America will find herself deeply mired in an economic meltdown, dollar collapse, and major war.
Some may ask about the third possibility; an actual Trump rescue of America. Sorry folks, I don’t see that happening. At least, not in the manner that some of the prophecies are claiming, which state that America will be restored to greatness, prosperity, and doom being canceled. For those that want to believe these claims, please know, that they go against scriptural precedent. And the Bible never lies.
According to the Scripture above, if any Christian claims to know God, they must understand the theology, of not just grace and righteousness, but also of judgment. When we examine the two biblical characters, Nebuchadnezzar and Cyrus, their roles had symbolic meaning and represented shadows of God’s truth.
King Nebuchadnezzar – God’s Sword
One of the saddest events to take place in the Old Testament was the fall of Jerusalem. It happened as a result Israel’s rebellion toward God and His Word. The Book of Lamentations gives us a snapshot of how horrible it was.
Before the fall of Jerusalem, the prophet Jeremiah warn Israel for 40 years. He warned that Babylon was going to invade, destroy, and carry them off into captivity. Unfortunately, the people of Jerusalem never believed him. Instead, they mocked and scoffed him. But Jeremiah never gave up.
Finally it happened. Babylon showed up with their army and surrounded Jerusalem. God’s instrument for the invasion was King Nebuchadnezzar.
And Nebuchadnezzar did it well. He destroyed the city, burned the temple, butchered thousands, gouged out the eyes of their king, and carried away most of the survivors as captives into slavery for 70 years. This is all recorded in the Old Testament. So for the evangelical leaders out there who do not understand Nebuchadnezzar’s role, he was God’s sword.
Yes, Nebuchadnezzar was God’s servant, and a tool for God, but he operated as the butcher/assassin/oppressor that God used to chastise Israel.
So for those out there who wonder if Donald Trump could be Nebuchadnezzar, please know, that if this is true, you better get your house in order, because that would mean that Trump is going to burn down your city, and make slaves out of your children, hence, he is going to destroy America and bring oppression to the country.
Again, ladies and gentlemen, this is the Bible. And none of us are allowed to re-manufacture a biblical account and customize it into something that is man-made to bring feel-good fuzzies.
What we have so far? Let’s view it as a biblical formula.
If Donald Trump is Nebuchadnezzar, fasten your seatbelts. The formula looks something like this:
Donald Trump = Nebuchadnezzar = Bad-Bad
Before we move on, I have to include the other biblical shadow about Nebuchadnezzar. He was the king of Babylon. When we look at the prophecies about the end times, we can read about mystery Babylon in the Book of Revelation. Mystery Babylon is a political entity that will rule the world during the tribulation period. Jeremiah 50 talks about Mystery Babylon and its leadership that will bring oppression to the world and to Israel.
Jeremiah 50: 17b “… Now at last this Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon has broken his bones.”
This prophecy is referring to the oppression that the end time leader – Nebuchadnezzar – Antichrist will bring to God’s people during the tribulation. Make note folks, in the end times, Nebuchadnezzar is one of the code words for the Antichrist.
Towards the end of the tribulation, God will destroy mystery Babylon.
Jeremiah 50:18, “…therefore thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: behold, I will punish the king of Babylon and his land,…”
This is significant, because if Donald Trump is Nebuchadnezzar, then that would mean, that we are pretty much there!
We could spend a lot of time on this and I’ll talk about it more in the future, but I wanted to establish that we are not allowed to just make stuff up. The evangelical leaders out there who are saying that Trump could be Nebuchadnezzar and equating it with a good thing and sadly do not know their Bibles, they do not understand end time prophecy, and they should be ashamed of themselves. Because spiritual shepherds need to know what they are talking about.
Is Trump King Cyrus?
Now let’s look at one of the other claims about Trump. There are some radio hosts, alternative media personalities, and evangelical leaders who are proposing and prophesying that Trump is Cyrus. Again, if this is true, we must examine the role of Cyrus in the Bible and the historical time-line.
When Israel was carried off into captivity, the event occurred as their judgment where they were forcibly relocated to Babylon. Jeremiah prophesied that they would remain in Babylon for 70 years, and that is exactly what happened. Toward the end of Israel’s captivity, the Mede-Persians invaded Babylon. Before they arrived, Daniel interpreted the writing on the wall in Daniel 5:25-28
“And this is the inscription that was written:
MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN.
“This is the interpretation of each word. MENE: God has numbered your kingdom, and finished it;
“TEKEL: You have been weighed in the balances, and found wanting;
“PERES: Your kingdom has been divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.”
The baton changed hands and Medo-Persia became the ruling kingdom. Cyrus was the king of the Medes when this took place. The amazing thing about Cyrus was that he had been prophesied by name 150 years before he was born.
The prophecy is found in Isaiah 45:1
“Thus says the Lord to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have held, to subdue nations before him, and lose the armor of Kings, to open before him the double doors, so that the gates will not be shut.”
After Cyrus invaded Babylon, he was shown that there were prophecies about him. God softened his heart and used him to set the Jewish captives free. His role was profound. And through him, the Jews returned home and resettled in the promised land.
Now folks, it is very important to make note of the judgment time line and the appearance of Cyrus. Cyrus showed up after God had chastised his people for 70 years.
Let me say that again, it was 70 years later. When the Jews were set free and went home, it was the children of the rebellious ones who were set free. The initial Jewish prisoners, their fathers, had all died while in Babylon.
We can read this in Zechariah 1:2-6a
“The LORD has been very angry with your fathers.
“Therefore say to them, ‘Thus says the LORD of hosts: “Return to Me,” says the LORD of hosts, “and I will return to you,” says the LORD of hosts.
“Do not be like your fathers, to whom the former prophets preached, saying, ‘Thus says the LORD of hosts: “Turn now from your evil ways and your evil deeds.” ’ But they did not hear nor heed Me,” says the LORD.
“Your fathers, where are they? And the prophets, do they live forever?
Yet surely My words and My statutes, Which I commanded My servants the prophets, Did they not overtake your fathers?…”
When the descendants of the initial captives returned home, 70 years had transpired. The returning Jews were the descendants of their rebellious fathers who died in Babylon.
They died because it was a part of their judgment and the Babylonian captivity killed those who initially experience it. Those who mocked and scoffed Jeremiah died in Babylon. This included the false prophets who lied to the people and made light of Jeremiah’s warning.
It was the children of the rebellious ones who returned. And it was Cyrus who set them free. Thus, Cyrus, the king of the Medes, is a type and shadow of a redeemer who shows up and destroys Babylon, and then sets the captives free.
Do you see it folks? According to the biblical timeline, Babylon must first be destroyed, before the captives are set free. It is very important to see and understand this. Also make note that it was the Medes who destroyed Babylon back then.
Will history repeat itself? What does the Bible say? If you are a Christian, there’s a good chance that you understand that we are in the end times. So let’s place the church’s time-line on the table and examine it through the lens of Scripture.
If you are a remnant believer, the question of Mystery Babylon must also be placed on the table. At this point in time, I believe that America is one of the layers of Mystery Babylon. I know that not everyone will agree with this, but even for those that do not agree with America’s role in this prophecy, one thing that cannot be argued, is that Mystery Babylon does exist in the end times. We can find this in Revelation 17, 18, Jeremiah 50, 51, Isaiah 13, and many other places.
When the Jews were set free in the Old Testament, it was Cyrus, king of the Medes, who sent them home to Jerusalem. When we look at end-time prophecy, we can read a future prophecy about the Medes and their involvement with end time Babylon.
According to Scripture, the Medes are going to destroy Babylon!
We can find this in Jeremiah 51: 11
“Make the arrows bright!
Gather the shields!
The LORD has raised up the spirit of the kings of the Medes.
For His plan is against Babylon to destroy it,
Because it is the vengeance of the LORD,
The vengeance for His temple.”
“Prepare against her the nations,
With the kings of the Medes,
Its governors and all its rulers,
All the land of his dominion.”
Isaiah 13:1, 17
“The burden against Babylon…”
“Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them,
Who will not regard silver;
And as for gold, they will not delight in it.”
There is folks, according to end time biblical prophecy, the kingdom of Cyrus or the Medes is going to play a pivotal role in destroying Babylon and setting God’s people free. But the shadow of Cyrus in the Old Testament will be fulfilled when Jesus returns in his second coming while the flames of Babylon burn.
“After these things I heard a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying, “Alleluia! Salvation and glory and honor and power belong to the Lord our God!
“For true and righteous are His judgments, because He has judged the great harlot (Mystery Babylon) who corrupted the earth with her fornication; and He has avenged on her the blood of His servants shed by her.”
Again they said, “Alleluia! Her smoke rises up forever and ever!”
And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshiped God who sat on the throne, saying, “Amen! Alleluia!”
Then a voice came from the throne, saying, “Praise our God, all you His servants and those who fear Him, both small and great!”
And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, “Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!
“Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.”
And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.”
The event in the passage above occurs at the end of the tribulation, which precedes the return of Jesus on His white horse. So in the context of Cyrus and the Medes, future prophecy shows us that the Medes are involved in the destruction of Babylon which results in Jesus the anointed one, returning to rule and reign.
As a side note, let’s re-examine the Cyrus prophecy That is found in Isaiah 45:1,2
“Thus says the LORD to His anointed,
To Cyrus, whose right hand I have held—
To subdue nations before him
And loose the armor of kings,
To open before him the double doors,
So that the gates will not be shut:
‘I will go before you
And make the crooked places straight;
I will break in pieces the gates of bronze
And cut the bars of iron.
Do you see how the prophecy above has a double meaning and exhibits attributes that Jesus our Messiah also accomplishes? There is a reason for this. It is because Cyrus was a type and shadow of Christ. And it is Jesus our Messiah who will bring permanent freedom when He returns in the second coming as the King of Kings.
This is confirmed later in the same chapter when God’s salvation is proclaimed for all of us Isaiah 45:22
“Look to Me, and be saved,
All you ends of the earth!
For I am God, and there is no other.
So is Donald Trump a King Cyrus?
Is it possible? According to the Scriptures, the Medes are going to destroy Mystery Babylon at the end of the tribulation.
In the Old Testament, Cyrus was the king of the Medes. So here’s the question, is Donald Trump King Cyrus? If he is, that would mean that according to Bible prophecy, he is going to be used to destroy Mystery Babylon.
Let’s take it further, if you believe that Mystery Babylon is America, then that would also mean that Donald Trump a.k.a. King Cyrus will destroy America / Mystery Babylon.
And if that’s true, then folks, you better have your house in order because that means that we are at the time of the end!
Based on the biblical evidence, there is no way that Donald Trump could be Nebuchadnezzar or Cyrus and also operate as an agent to bring redemption and greatness to America.
Because, if he is really one of those two guys, greatness is not coming, as the voices are proclaiming but instead, prepare yourselves for great woe and sorrow. And get your hearts right.
I have a lot more to share about this matter so stay tuned and also seek the Lord my friend. The hour is late.
In his service,
P.S. – this disclosure is not about who to vote for. It is about having the mind of Christ and proper biblical knowledge. If you want to vote for Trump then do it, but do it because God is telling you to do it, not some radio show or media personality. BTW, there are other third party candidates. Not that it matters.
Below are a few emails that I have received about this article…
A good article but I fear you are crying in the wind ie. nobody hears you. A friend, many years ago, had a dream of people in boats sailing in a big river. My friend could see that around a bend in the river was a huge waterfall. The boats and the people were being carried by the current nearer and nearer to the bend of the river. They could not see what was on the other side and would not listen to the warnings my friend was yelling to them. Then in an instant the boats went around the bend and were quickly swept over the falls. I fear that is what we are seeing today. A great revival is coming, but destruction is coming too and no one is listening, not more than a handful.
Nathan’s Comment – “Crying in the wind.” How true that seems. I just have to hope that someone out there will be stirred to see the the deceptive haze. God bless.
Thank you so much for your messages Nathan!
Thank you, Nathan for continuing to be the voice crying out in the wilderness. Never has there been such a spirit of confusion and delusion in the house of God!!! It seems like everyday another “prophet” has a dream about Donald being ‘”the anointed one”., that he or she just has to share on blogtalk, etc. This is causing many to let down their guard.
Both political conventions are about to take place. Communists are already in place, ready to wreak havoc. Blood may flow in our streets before this month is over. Hillary gets away with treason, and other heinous crimes, proving to the American people that there really is no justice anymore.
Deluded souls, who love to freeload off the government still support her, as they care more about the handouts than the country. “Prophecy’s” about the Donald winning and taking back this country will destroy many ministries when they fail to come to pass.
It appears that Hillary is “the one” the elite have picked for the White House. Who is to say that we will last until the “elections”? Martial Law could end all hope for “taking the country back”.
I can’t stand to watch, listen, or hear, about any of the political goings on. We have a corrupt system that is imploding around itself. No human is going to save us!!! We are in more danger now than just about anytime in our history. Can cheering for a candidate at a convention change that? Our mortal enemies are inside the gates.
Instead of a Holy fear and dread, leading to heartfelt repentance, we are like the Israelite’s, who, when seeing enemies coming to destroy them, sat atop the wall – the woman swooning over how handsome the invaders were!!!!!! All I can say for the Lord’s true people is “brace for impact”, as things are about to get ugly! I continue to pray for you!
Could it be time for God’s people to trust in God’s plan for what is taking place just before His Son returns for His Children? 1 John 2:15 in the OLD Living New Testament said – “Have as much to do with this world as a dead man.”
We are IN the world but not OF the world. What would happen IF God’s children began living as a child of the Living Eternal King, Princes and Princesses whose Father predestined us to have power over the dark force, the same power Ephesians 1 tells us, that raised Jesus from the dead?
Would we allow our mind, the mind Scripture tells us is “The Mind of Christ,” take in information that kills, steals, and destroys? If we really know WHO WE ARE in Christ Jesus, would we be involved with the things of this world, listening to lies being spoken at the worlds table – led by those who God has allowed to bring forth the antichrist’s agenda during the tribulation time?
We’re told we will be “judged by no man.” We have The Holy Spirit connecting our own human heart/spirit/conscience to God’s own Heart. We hear things the world without The Godhead living in them can never hear – and even if they have an inkling of something bad is coming – they do not have wisdom to understand and their knowledge is useless.
Let us encourage one another to seek diligently to know God and WHO HE IS. For then we can enter into and stay in His rest, covered with His wings – angels bearing us up lest we dash our foot against a stone – stones having once been a part of “The Rock,” but they have broken off and like the sands on the beach were once part of big rocks tossed to and fro by the strong ocean currents until they become little pieces of sand men can walk on without hurting their feet – men have been tossed to and fro by men’s doctrines until many in “The Churches” don’t really know WHO God is or who they are IN Him; they hear pleasant stories that cause NO change in them and others can hardly tell a Christian from their neighbors who don’t know the Living God.
In Christ abiding, secure in His love and grace while learning to live daily as a child of God with all the rights and privileges we have available to us when we trust and believe our lives are truly hid with Christ IN God.
J & S
What choice do we have, as Christians, but to vote for Mr. Trump? He has said he would select pro-life Supreme Court Justices and get rid of Common Core which are issues in the Christian’s best interest.
Nathan Comment – Yes that’s true he said it, but my argument is that he has NEVER done anything to prove that he can be trusted. And as I stated at the end of my article, ‘If you want to vote for Trump then do it, but do it because God is telling you to do it, not some radio show or media personality. BTW, there are other third party candidates. Not that it matters.’
Ive followed you off and on for a bit. And, I would like to say what your saying about Trump is right on the mark! Like Ive always said to friends and family, if you claim to be a believer, and vote or voted for Trump is saying a lot. I believe from scripture, if you have voted or will vote for him with a “clear” conscience is saying basically your an unbeliever. If you have voted or will vote for Trump, but hold your “nose” doing it, is still wrong, but is showing that the Spirit Of God is truly in your life. I believe that 2 Thessalonians 2:3 is upon us indeed. And I believe God is using Trump to separate the wheat from the tares, especially in America. There is a spiritual dimension behind this whole ordeal. These So called Christian leaders endorsing him are showing there true heart colors…false shepherds who are obviously fake! bro, keep standing for the truth.
