Pastor Steve Cioccolanti of Discover Church in Melbourne, Australia, is a man I greatly respect. He is a godly, Bible centered pastor and one of the sharpest minds the Church has to boast of today. I watched a video that he just did, regarding Donald Trump. (The link is posted at the bottom). In the video he produces some interesting and vital facts but reaches no real conclusion. Allow me to speak to the information and to end with a rhetorical question.
My name is David but no one has ever called me “The David”. I know many people, with many different names, but none of them have ever been referred to by the article “The” followed by their first name. How significant is it then that Donald Trump is widely known as “THE DONALD?
“THE DONALD”, what does that mean? I am glad you asked.
It turns out that Donald is a Scottish, Celtic name that comes from two Celtic words:
- Dumno = world
- Val = ruler
So “The Donald” means “THE WORLD RULER”
TRUMP = TRIUMPH and / or TRUMPET
“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” 1 Corinthians 15:52
In Isaiah 44:28, the Prophet gives the Word of God,
(I am Yahweh) who says to Cyrus, “My shepherd he will fulfill all My pleasure” and says to Jerusalem, “She will be rebuilt,” and of the temple, “Its foundation will be laid.”
That was 200 years before Cyrus was born but it was Cyrus who ordered the Jews back to Jerusalem and the Temple rebuilt. God gave them his name and told them what he would do, two centuries before his birth.
That is why it is important to understand that when Jesus said, “I saw Satan fall from Heaven like lightening”, Fall like lightening, transliterated from the Aramaic He spoke, is “Barak O Bama.”
That is why the name of this very different candidate, who is being lifted up against all the power of Wall Street and Washington DC, is important. “THE WORLD RULER” TRIUMPH/TRUMPET”.
In Acts 5:38, Gamaliel says,
“38 And now, I tell you, stay away from these men and leave them alone. For if this plan or this work is of men, it will be overthrown; 39 but if it is of God, you will not be able to overthrow them. You may even be found fighting against God.”
Pastor Steve suggested that Christians might not want to fight against The Donald because if this is the work of men, it will fail, but if it is God who is lifting him up, you might find yourself fighting against God. Good advice.
NOTE: The Donald, may be a national ruler but he becomes the ruler of the world.
I must end this short note with a question.
Who is the last World Ruler before the Rapture of the Church?
