Donald Trump's Rise to Power Foretold in Bible Prophecy?
He Fulfill the Ancient Predictions by Confronting Iran?

principles are commendable: to protect the unborn and
reduce the wholesale slaughter of babies, to show American
strength on the international stage, to support the nation of Israel, to
fix or nix the Iran deal and to support the traditional values America
was founded on. However, Trump's presidency--he who will "rule with
great power and do as he pleases"--is identified in Bible prophecy as one of the last of American superpower
predictions of Daniel 8:1-8 and Daniel 11:3-4 to confront the modern-day
Persians will be fulfilled, with the quick defeat and overthrow the Iranians. However, shortly after America
will be crushed as the global superpower,
when a nuclear charged World War 3 kills
millions and forever changes the power structures of the world.
may well fulfill this role. First, to be the last American President
who stands solidly and unapologetically with Israel; second, to promote
the principles of law and order, the sanctity of life, religious
liberties and traditional vales, offering Americans an alternative to
the ongoing demise of morality the nation has experienced over
the last 60 years; and third, to confront Iran's bad behavior and
constant threats to Israel's destruction. The following box shows the 14 times President Trump either upped the pressure on Iran or
gave support to Israel during his four-year term.

chance to set a new course toward redeemable values, and to bring God's
moral standards back into the mainstream. Yet, the U.S. seems destined
to the ultimate outcome of decades rejecting God--America's final
demise as the world's superpower. This fall and punishment is as much on
the religious as it is on secular leadership, as compromise and passivity
has grown in American Christianity and Judaism over the decades leading
to moral corruption and decline.
West has endured 30 years of political turmoil since the 1979 hostage crisis, but
no major conflict with the Persians. However, Iran's sudden aggression and lashing out
is foretold in Daniel 8. It will anger the West, who in turn will
confront Persia with blunt force "crossing
the whole earth without touching the ground." This war will occur
during Trump's Presidency or shortly after. WILL TRUMP BE ELECTED A 2ND
TIME IN CONTINUATION OF THIS PROPHECY? The great shaking in
Jerusalem and the destruction of Islamic structures and the Temple Mount
will enrage Islam, but the military will defeat Iran speedily.
Nonetheless, the realities of world
conflict will rise with this decisive victory. American and Europe will face unforeseen
calamities, cutting edge military strategies of
enemies and overpowering global forces involving Russia that will bring
nations to their knees. World War 3 will be decisive,
swift and large-scale.
The physical world correlates
turmoil in the unseen world. This planet shadows the supernatural
conflict between Satan and his army and Messiah and His army, good
verses evil, as the crisis explodes across the globe. Satan and all who
do his bidding in this world will
do all they can to kill, steal and destroy, and in doing so make the
world ready for a savior--the Antichrist and his rise to global
broke out in heaven. Michael and His
angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought
back. But he was
not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The
great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or
Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and
his angels with him...
"Woe to the earth and the sea, because
the devil has gone down to you! He is filled with
he knows that his time is short,”
is the stark reality. No one man alone can save America; it has been an unrepentant nation whose citizens have for decades
killed millions of babies from border to border, and today produces
pornography, condones homosexuality, celebrates gay marriage and is morally
and financially bankrupt. The world at large is held under Satan's
temporary domination and control, and indulges in all these sins and
countless more. The planet will descend into the final-days chaos and
tribulation after the Jerusalem disaster, as foretold in the Hebrew
visions. Only the KING of Kings, and LORD of Lords can intervene to save
a planet of 7.5 billion souls groaning under the weight of sin. Jesus-Yeshua is our only hope. Until that Day,
the prophetic door of prophecy will open as the ground itself opens, and
will never close again. Mayhem and
crisis will crescendo with lightning speed, globally. This
is what prophecy has forewarned of for over two thousand years in the books
of Daniel and Revelation and the other Hebrew prophecies. National and international division will
increase exponentially, tearing apart the fabric of
our societies and killing untold men, women and children.
How the Prophecies Describe Past & Current World Leaders, Wars & Disasters
January 8, 2017 (on the Jewish/Biblical Asara
B'Tevet--the Fast of the 10th Month referred to in Zechariah
fourth President--Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, Persia’s wealthiest leader
of modern times whose rule was foretold in Bible prophecy (Daniel 11:2),
died by heart attack at age 82. Why is this important? Because his
rise to power in Iran would be a forerunner to another "mighty"
leader who would then ascend to power and "do as he pleases."
fulfilled his role as prophecy foretold through his wealth and decades of
power by stirring up sentiment against Western powers. This
“stirring” can be found in his involvement in the Iranian revolution
that would bring radical mullahs to power in Persia, and his public statements against the West
and Israel; but most importantly, his wealth and influence led to the
initiation of Iran’s nuclear weapons program in the 1980’s. The
nuclear program is the nucleus of Iran’s modern-day
brazenness, which has played out time and again in Iran's continuous
threats and involvement in state-sponsored terrorism against Israel and
other Middle Eastern Sunni nations, as well as the bombing of the Jewish center in
Argentina in 1994, which Rafsanjani personally oversaw.
2001, Iran’s 4th President--Hashemi Rafsanjani called the existence of Israel an ugly,
colonialist phenomenon and said that nuclear
war could destroy everything on the ground in Israel but would
merely damage the world of Islam. Rafsanjani’s statement was an
indirect appeal to turn Iran into a suicide bomb against Israel. Ever
since then, Iran has been devoting itself to building nuclear
is a chart of Iran's elected officials since the 1979 Revolution that
shifted Iranian leadership from monarchs to elected Presidents, showing
Rafsanjani to be Iran's 4th President. Now, let's
look at the Biblical evidence, with commentary. Daniel 11:2-4 prophesies:
then, I tell you the truth: Three more kings will arise in Persia
[modern-day Iran -- (1) President Banisadr; (2) President Rajar and (3)
President Khamenei]; and, then a fourth [(4) President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani],
who will be far richer than all the others
[exactly as foretold... he was featured in the Forbes Magazine, because of his
When he has gained power by his wealth, he will stir up everyone against
the kingdom of Greece [Hebrew: "Javan"--interpreted as
shown, not only did Iran's end-time political transition produce a
"4th" leader--Rafsanjani, but also he
indeed was one of
the "wealthiest men" in Persia, just as the 2,500-year-old
Daniel prediction said he would be. Furthermore, as a renowned Islamic mullah
he also "stirred up" Islam against the West
by his revolutionary acts, his bold proclamations in support of Iranian ideology and his nuclear program.
However, Rafsanjani died on January 8, 2017, and was buried on January 10, 2017.
It's obvious now, Rafsanjani
will not be personally involved in the upcoming Iran vs. West conflict,
which war will occur just prior to America's demise. Nonetheless, his
position as the "fourth" President, his "wealth" and
"stirrings" against the West have clearly fulfill the prophecy
during his lifetime.
The next verse in the Daniel 11 prophecy continues, with commentary
added: “Then a mighty king will
arise [Donald Trump--his inauguration was January 20, 2017, exactly ten days after
Rafsanjani's burial], who
will rule with great power and do as he pleases [President
Trump is indeed a man who is charting his own course and doing as he pleases,
against almost all norms]. After he has arisen [taken
office], his empire [America] will be broken up [superpower
destroyed, likely due to nuclear exchange/holocaust, natural calamities, economic collapse,
pandemics, rioting and social disorder, etc.] and
parceled out toward the four winds of heaven." In
this regard, Donald Trump is the prophetic signal that the U.S. may be
posed to lose its
superpower status with the sudden
collapse of America. It may occur during or just following his Presidency
(a 2nd term may be possible in the future),
which power will then be divided/dispersed to other nations... to the "four
winds" around the globe.
The prophecy ends, "It [the American empire] will not go to his
[Trump's] descendants [family members;
children--Donald Jr. or Ivanka], nor will it have the power he
exercised, because his [American] empire will be uprooted and given to
others [the United Nations -- New World Order]."

distinct prophecies in the book of Daniel repeat this pattern of America's demise
(Daniel 7:2-4; Daniel 8:5-8;
Daniel 11:3-4). A "do as he pleases" political figure comes
into power; America angrily and successfully attacks Iran (due to Iran's
after which, America's power is dispersed to the four corners of the earth... to the
"four winds". It's important to note the "four
winds" references in the prophecies. This dispersion of power
repeats in the prophecies, which ties Daniel's
three visions together.

Trump after Rafsanjani's death and America's demise to follow; now, let's consider the second

Four great [political] beasts, each

possibly from Britain itself].”

third prophecy is found in Daniel
8:5-8; 17-22 and is clearly connected to the Daniel 11:3-4 vision,
which points to Middle-East conflicts involving Iraq, followed
by Iran, and
a notable horn--America who confronts Iran as the
time of the end begins: “As
I was thinking about this, suddenly a goat [NATO Western powers]
with a prominent horn [America] between its eyes came from the West,
crossing the whole earth without touching the ground [with military
speed and agility, from a great distance].
It came toward the two-horned [Iraq & Iran,
Islamic] ram I had seen standing beside the canal [in the province of
Elam (v. 2) —modern-day Iran, at the Persian Gulf] and charged at it in
great rage. I saw it
[NATO Western Powers] attack the [Islamic] ram furiously, striking
the ram and shattering its two horns [destroying Iraq, followed by
Iran—the larger horn; Daniel 8:3]. The [Islamic] ram was powerless to
stand against it; the [NATO Western] goat knocked it to the ground and
trampled on it, and none could rescue the [Islamic] ram from its power."
As with Iraq's defeat during the Gulf War of years 2003-2011, Iran's defeat is
prophecy continues, "The [NATO Western] goat became very
great, but at the height of its power [the West's power before its
demise] the large horn [America] was
broken off, and in its place four prominent horns grew up
toward the four winds of heaven [America’s
and is dispersed around the globe].
when does this vision meet its fulfillment? Daniel 8:17-18
was terrified and fell prostrate. “Son of man,”
said to me [Daniel], “understand that the vision concerns the
time of the end."
Again, he repeats for emphasis,
“I am going to tell you
what will happen later in the time of wrath,
because the vision concerns the appointed time
of the end.
The two-horned [Islamic] ram that you saw represents the kings of
Media [Iraq] and Persia [Iran]. The
shaggy goat is the king[dom] of Greece [Hebrew: "Javan"—Greece/NATO
powers] and the large horn between its eyes is the first king [most
four horns that replaced the one that was broken off [America] represent

became more pragmatic in his later years; however, in the
early decades of his leadership as Iran's fourth President and Ali
Khamenei's confidant, he promoted a revolutionary anti-American and anti-West ideology.

30 years you have been calling for talks with us and we refused. Now,
you lay tough conditions to make us talk with you? Have you forgotten
the time when the US hostages were in Iran and your envoys came (here)
for talks to secure their (the hostages') release?" Rafsanjani,
December 9, 2008
United States is making a concerted effort to hurt Iran and is therefore
the primary enemy of the Islamic Republic," Rafsanjani, December 2, 2008
one day, the Islamic world is also equipped with weapons like those that
Israel possesses now, then the imperialists' strategy will reach a
standstill because the use of even one nuclear bomb inside Israel will
destroy everything. However, it will only harm the Islamic world. It is
not irrational to contemplate such an eventuality," Rafsanjani,
December 14, 2001
There Meaning to Rafsanjani's Death on the Biblical Fast of the Tenth Month (Tevet)—Asara B’Tevet?
annual fast of Asara B'Tevet (the fast of the 10th month -- Zechariah
8:19) commemorates the siege of Jerusalem by
Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon in the 10th day of the 10th
Jewish month of Tevet in 587 BC—that ultimately culminated in the
destruction of Solomon's Temple (the First Temple) in 586 BC, and the
conquest of the Kingdom of Judah (today's central Israel). The
significance of Rafsanjani's death on the Tenth of Tevet may be symbolic
in two ways:
the fast is a remembrance of Babylon's
(modern-day Iraq) siege of
Jerusalem. In 587/586 BC, Babylon was Israel's most powerful and
dangerous enemy. Soon thereafter, King Nebuchadnezzar died, and his
Babylonian empire fell to Persia (modern-day Iran). The Persian King Cyrus then allowed the
rebuilding of Jerusalem, along with the Second Temple.
Iran is Israel's most powerful and dangerous enemy (primarily due to its
nuclear weapons program, which Rafsanjani initiated); in the same
manner, the death of the modern-day powerful Rafsanjani may indicate the
upcoming demise of Iran and its nuclear program, and the disbursement of
Persia's wealth; followed by, the rebuilding of Jerusalem and the Third
Second, the death of the
wealthy Rafsanjani finalizes the Daniel 11:2 prophecy, which sets the stage
for the events of verses 3-4. These verses prophesy the rise of another
very wealthy leader
man who will “rule with great
power and do as he pleases."
Like Nebuchadnessar who raised up a statue of his power, Trump also
built Trump Towers to accentuate his success. His crescendo to great power,
followed by the ultimate ruin of America after America stomps on Iran with speed
and finality, harps on history repeating
itself. Therefore, since Donald Trump is the fulfillment of Daniel's prophecy,
his Presidency will signal the upcoming attack on Iran leading further
to the turmoil of World War 3, and with it the destruction of Jerusalem, the
collapse of the Temple Mount and its structures, the rise of Antichrist,
the rebuilding of Jerusalem (and its Third and final Temple on the Temple
Mount), followed by the entrance of the Man of Sin into Jerusalem,
followed immediately by the Great Tribulation with Jerusalem's complete
and utter demise—as foretold
21:20-22 and Daniel
9:26, and the return of Yeshua--our Messiah! All of
this in about a three and one-half year period. In
reality, Trump met his prophetic role as God's final appointed times of the
end come into focus. Is there any doubt his
presidency will carry the tone of expectancy and a chosen status to the
watchful Bible students?
