Fire In My Bones; What If Trump Is the Anti-Christ?

What If Trump Is the Anti-Christ?

I'm not saying that Trump is the Anti-Christ but just wondering.

George H.W. Bush's 1990 New World Order speech was heads up that an entrenched new hegemony was upon us. Our current world order is not the one that we were expecting but here Trump is anyway.

It's a wonder. What if Trump is the Antichrist? My perspective comes from a liberal study of eschatology and a preferential option for the poor. Let us therefore propose that the antichrist spirit has taken over the religious right and riding upon the back of what we call Babylon. Trump is therefore known in our "what if" scenario as the man of sin, the son of perdition, the beast that will fall into the abyss along with the false prophet. Besides this foolery, the Anti-Christ in prophecy and current events should be taken quite seriously.

Let's say this supposed Anti-Christ was using his German name, Donald Johann Trumpf. Satan the dragon gives Trumpf his power and his seat and with it, great authority. Trumpf naturally magnifies himself. He brings many onto his side with promises of peace, security, and economic prosperity, including the religious folk.

Let us agree perhaps from wishful wonderment that the church of Babylon is that kingdom of darkness masquerading as light. This spirit has temporal control of the financial, religious, and economic interests of much of the entire world through the anti-christ system. Trumpf demands total loyalty and through a strong fore-ordained delusion, these pseudo-saints totally give in, thinking they are serving God. They worship Trumpf as their savior, they believe his lies, they reflect his hatred and pretense of spiritual authority and they receive his mark of acceptance.

Meanwhile, the true saints receive the seal of God. You know them; they prophesy liberality, truth and justice and are kind to each other. They propose grand ideals and with the sword of His spirit denounce the unjust practices of the antichrist system. Trumpf is overthrown.

What if showers of enlightenment fall during this time. I wonder. It could have sprung up any minute but when it did, it was restoration steps to grace, knowledge and unity.

Trumpf is supremely cunning and plots his war with the saints. His understanding of dark secrets serve the most diabolical and self-driven man the world has ever seen. Signs and wonders in the Day of the Lord but neither man nor nature will be on our side. This is our final chance to try to get things right but the people of darkness outnumber the children of light and Trumpf rises to miraculously become king of the world again. His deadly wound healed, Trumpf pulls out all the stops, anarchy reigns and now the whole world wonders. He has the mandate to do whatever he wants and will continue to give us more reason to oppose him as he leads us closer to world destruction. Jesus steps in with the brightness of His coming, Trumpf and his friend are thrown into the fiery pit and we enter into a new era of love, peace, joy and enlightenment.

Just wondering...

Jay

Had to look up God particle. Can't see that happening, there is to be a new heaven and a new earth, not possible if the universe was wiped out. Not that God couldn't do it if he wanted to. The AC gets his power from satan.


Thanks for the thumbs up

You referenced it quite appropriately an eschatology and preferential treatment for the poor. Perhaps less refined and in a different of matter would be peeons. So yes Trumpf is one of many antichrists dwelling the bowels of the elites.

Trump is certainly conforming to the anti-christ archetype.


My late husband deeply studied the books of Revelation and Daniel. In Daniel's vision a disturbing "small horn" which has "eyes like the eyes of a human being and a mouth that spoke boastfully", and represents a blasphemous king who engages in wanton violence.


"This evil king will seek to change times and laws, and he will exert oppressive power over God's people for three and a half years" (Daniel 7:25)


This "little horn" is also the "beast" in the book of revelation. Couldn't the word "trump" be considered a diminutive trumpet?


Trump seems to have more than his fair share of connections with the number of the beast "666", you can google them, some are pretty outlandish, but still...

There are three sixes on his Mar-a-lago crest, and 666 Fifth Ave was owned by Trump through his SiL Kushner. I read that in gematria (the symbolic numerical system known to biblical writers) that "Don Drumpf" equals 666.


None of that is as damning as his daily actions, however...but interesting in terms of wondering how someone might symbolicaly prophecy something of this magnitude eons before it happened.

Hi Meryl,


Those damning daily actions, which are many, just endears more to his supporters. Don't quite understand that yet. We won't know until toward the 2024 election. What will be will be.


Thanks,


Jay

This is somewhat entertaining, but methinks a more likely word for a diminutive trumpet would be trumpette 😁.

He's nothing but a tiny pimple on the ass of The Empire. We should praise him for letting the mask slip off.


You aren't supposed to squeeze a pimple, as it will likely leave a scar. Can we all get that much straight?


I'll vote for the f'r before anyone but Tulsi or Marianne. Let's get the show over with. Sooner than later.


Do you believe in death with dignity? I did, long before I even heard of Kevorkian.
