Donald Trump's Rise to Power Foretold in Daniel's Prophecy?
His Decisions Spell National Disaster?

support Donald Trump's efforts to reduce abortions, 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, in light of the fact that Trump's powerful
presidency is identified in Bible prophecy, we must understand how his
decisions will bring America to its knees. He is bound to fulfill the
predictions of Daniel 8:1-8 and Daniel 11:3-4 to confront Iran, and
thereby, defeat and overthrow the Persians; but also, forthwith to
oversee the demise of America as the global superpower after Iran's
decisive defeat, as a nuclear charged World War III likely kills
millions and forever changes the power structures of the world. But,
this is not all on Trump. America is an unrepentant nation whose citizens have for decades
killed over 500,000 babies every year in all 50 states, and today produces
pornography, condones homosexuality and gay marriage, and is morally
corrupt; and, the world at large is still held under Satan's domination and
control. Only the KING of Kings, and LORD of Lords can offer salvation
to a planet of 7.5 million souls groaning under the weight of sin. Yeshua is our only hope. Until that Day, mayhem and
crisis will reign. This
is what prophecy has forewarned of thousands of years ago in the books
of Daniel and Revelation.
How the Prophecies Describe 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."
has, as prophecy foretold through his wealth and decades of power,
stirred 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"--Greece, but
also including the West]."
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,
social disorder, etc.] and
parceled out toward the four winds of heaven." In
this regard, Donald Trump is bound to be the last
American President to rule while the U.S. is a superpower; the sudden
demise of America will occur in the early years of his Presidency,
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 [the normal election process will end; President
Trump will likely be the last president elected by American voters], nor will it have the power he
exercised, because his [Trump/American] empire will be uprooted and given to
others [the United Nations -- New World Order]."
Other Prophecies Speak to America’s Downfall?
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, angrily and successfully attacks Iran (likely, 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" involvement and dispersion of power correlation repeated 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

winds of heaven churning up the great sea [of nations].
Four great [political] beasts, each different

first was like a lion [Great Britain], and it had the wings of an eagle
[America]. I watched until its wings were torn off [America’s downfall

it stood on two feet like a human being, and the mind of a human was
given to it [indicating the rise of the False Prophet from the West].”

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/Trump who confronts Iran at the
time of the end: “As
I was thinking about this, suddenly a goat [Western powers]
with a prominent horn [America/Trump] 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,

Elam (v. 2) —modern-day Iran, at the Persian Gulf] and charged at it in
great rage. I saw it
[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 [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 [Western] goat became very
great, but at the height of its power the large horn [America] was
broken off, and in its place four prominent horns grew up
toward the four winds of heaven [America’s

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/Western
powers] and the large horn between its eyes is the first king [most
powerful, Trump/America]. The
four horns that replaced the
one [Trump/America] that was broken off represent four kingdoms that will
emerge from his nation [United Nations; New World Order]

early decades of his leadership as Iran's fourth President and Ali

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, his
future attack on Iran, followed by the ultimate ruin of America in the
early years of his presidency just after he stomps on Iran with speed
and finality, harps on history repeating
itself. Therefore, since Donald Trump is the fulfillment of Daniel's prophecy,
his leadership will
lead, step by step, to World War III, 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!
