(Kelly Mcdonald JR) When Donald Trump first became a legitimate political entity this past summer, some people called him the “Trump” or “Trumpet” of God. These individuals believed that he was being used by God to call attention to important issues. Others said that he was not genuine in his intentions. Can God use Donald Trump? Is this a ludicrous or legitimate argument?
First, let’s make one thing clear. The man has brought to light some very important issues, such as immigration and terrorism. He is appealing to the common person in a way that the other candidates are unable to do so. I don’t want to negate his effectiveness at this point. Could his intentions be wrong? Of course! The question remains – can God use Him?
Before we answer this question, I think it is important to consider the example of King Nebuchadnezzar. He is one of the few individuals in the Bible to be directly called a servant of God. Let’s read, “Now I will give all your countries into the hands of my servant Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon; I will make even the wild animals subject to him.” (Jeremiah 27:6 – see also Jer. 25:9, 43:10). The Lord actually rewarded Nebuchadnezzar! “I have given him Egypt as a reward for his efforts because he and his army did it for me, declares the Sovereign Lord” (Ezekiel 29:20). FULL REPORT
