At one point in Jerusalem, there was a plot by a group of Jews to assassinate the apostle Paul. They bound themselves with an oath not to eat or drink until they had killed Paul (see Acts 23:12-22). But it was God’s ultimate intention for Paul to go to Rome and stand trial and not to be killed. That is why God sent an angel when Paul was going through a major storm at sea on his way to Rome, to tell him,
“Don’t be afraid, Paul, for you will surely stand trial before Caesar!” Acts 27:24 NLT
In other words, these Jews could not kill Paul simply because God, who is the author of life and death, did not allow it – pure and simple (see Luke 12:5)!
Now there are some preachers like Rodney Howard-Browne going around saying that there is a credible plot on Capitol Hill to have president Donald Trump assassinated and that we must pray for it not to happen. Really? Did God say that? What’s going on here?
Relax, you people! The Bible clearly says that, “God controls the course of world events; He removes kings and sets up other kings!” Daniel 2:21 NLT
God brought Donald Trump into the office of the presidency to give America a last chance on redemption! It is no wonder that he is receiving death threats. Nothing strange or new!
I remember that during former president Barack Obama’s reign, several well-known Christian prophets predicted with great certainty that Obama was going to be killed and yet it never happened! Why? Because God did not allow it!
Therefore, it is God who is in control of president Donald Trump or anybody else for that matter! Nothing will happen to him unless He allows it!
Here is what the Lord says about Donald Trump: “I saw you before you were born. Every day of your life was recorded in My book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.” (Taken from Psalm 139:16)
