We see that Trump came to the Presidency largely with the backing of one major group, and that is the Evangelicals. Hopefully this will be what all true Christians desire and that it will be a positive development for better with laws that make it a little harder to do wrong and a little easier to do right.
We know that they had a very positive influence on his political race, but Evangelical influence on Trump’s personal life is somewhat debatable, for while some of the leading evangelicals claim Trump has received Jesus Christ, well there is always a life that follows. I hope that is the case for Mr. Trump.
We know that one thing is certain, that Trump has promised to give the Evangelicals their voice back. :
The next president is going to be very vital … in freeing up your religion, freeing up your thoughts,” Trump said. “You really don’t have religious freedom.”
Trump said ministers, in particular, are “petrified” of talking about politics because of IRS rules barring groups like churches that receive charitable tax exemptions from engaging in political advocacy.
“We are gonna get rid of that,” Trump said,…”
From the Message we understand that the Evangelicals and Pentecostals are getting together with Rome just as the 7th Church Age Messenger stated:
16 I predict that the two denominational groups, Pentecostal and the evangelical groups, will work together in a denomination, will unite themselves together and will become a member, all of them, of the Federation of the Council Churches, or the Council of Churches. They already belong to it, all of them. And there will come, through them, a forcing, or a boycott, that will stop everything but what belongs to that union of churches. That’s what a… The Bible said that there would be a boycott, even to such a way it would ’cause people to not buy or sell unless they had received this: the mark of the beast, which is Romanism; and the image of the beast, which is Protestantism. That the image… The beast had power, authority, to give the image life, to speak, and it did. And that’s the Confederation of Churches, when they confederate themselves together.

Donald Trump has promised to give the Evangelicals power to speak, is this a foreshadow of the Council of Churches coming into its power? We know that prophetically there is not much time left and this World Council has to start acting in power like the beast of Rome. The Messenger to the Age tells us what was the result of Constantine being the patron of the Nicolaitaines of the 3rd Church Age.
And so the terrible persecution of official Rome fell upon the true believers until Constantine arose and granted freedom of religious worship. There seems to be two reasons why this freedom was granted. In the first place various good emperors had not allowed persecution, but as they passed on, they were followed by those who killed Christians. It was so senseless that it finally came to public heed that the Christians ought to be left alone. The second and best noted reason is that Constantine had a very difficult battle ahead of him in taking over the control of the empire. One night in a dream he saw a white cross appear before him. He felt that this was an omen unto him that if the Christians prayed for a victory for him, he would win the battle. He promised freedom for them in the event that he was victorious. He was victorious and the freedom of worship was granted in the edict of Nantes 312 A.D. But this freedom from persecution and death was not as magnanimous as it first appeared. Constantine was now the patron. As a patron his interest was somewhat more than that of an observer, for he decided that the church needed his help in her affairs. He had seen them disagreeing over various matters, one of which involved Arius, Bishop of Alexander, who taught his adherents that Jesus was not truly God but a lesser being, having been created by God. The Western Church held the opposite view, believing that Jesus was the very essence of God and as they said ‘co-equal with the Father.’ With such matters, along with the intrusion of pagan ceremony into worship, the emperor called for the Nicene Council in 325 with the thought that he would bring all groups together where they could iron out their differences, and come to a common understanding, and all be one. Isn’t it peculiar that though this started with Constantine it didn’t die but is very much alive today as the “World Council of Churches”? And where he failed to truly achieve it, it will be achieved in this day through the ecumenical move.

President-elect Trump has come to power because of the senseless slaughter of Christians by Muslim Extremists, He made it through an election that nobody expected him to win, and he is indebted to the Evangelicals. Time will tell what happens!
God bless you!
