Mr. President :: By Nathele Graham

Mr. Trump, you have been elected president of the United States. Christians prayed and God answered our prayers. You have committed yourself to “Make America Great Again” and I applaud this promise. Sir, a nation or a person is only as great as the God or god they serve. If you serve God Almighty then your efforts will be blessed. We can see the results of serving gods that are demonic and I am tired of being a citizen of a country whose leaders serve demon gods. God Almighty said, “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” (Exodus 20:3).

That is a Commandment, not a suggestion. In fact it is the first of Ten Commandments. If that first one is followed then the others should all fall into place.

Mr. President, America can only be great if God is first. Over the past few decades Jesus Christ has been banned from our schools and from our government. When God is removed from schools and government, sin abounds. Moral decay has gripped this nation since prayer and the Bible were banned. This has to change. Invite Jesus into all government buildings, government meetings, and into our public schools. Secular humanism is a religion with no moral guidance but it is allowed into our children’s classrooms.

Christianity is faith not religion, it’s a way of life with moral standards to strive to live by. The word of God teaches moral integrity yet it is banned while secular humanism, which teaches amoral values, is encouraged. This is wrong. Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me” (Revelation 3:20).

Jesus will not force Himself into a place where He is not welcome. Mr. Trump, as president of the United States of America, open the door to Him and invite Him into public schools, government meetings, and into the White House.

Mr. President, you are the Commander In Chief of a military force that is second to none. Remember those who wear uniforms and fight battles where they are sent. There will never be an end to war until Jesus Christ reigns, and there are many battles being fought today. Please, don’t degrade our soldiers of today and those veterans who have served in the past. Don’t forget our soldiers in their time of need.

Not all battles are fought with guns, airplanes, or tanks. The most dangerous enemy that anyone faces is Satan. Spiritual warfare is a reality and the weapons required to fight that battle only come from God. Allow the chaplains who minister to our military to arm these soldiers for spiritual battle. Allow them to call on the name of Jesus and share His love with our troops. Without Jesus the battle is lost.

“Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand” (Ephesians 6:13).

The war on terror is a war against satanic powers and demon gods. If you deny spiritual weapons then all the bullets in the world won’t win the battle. Mr. President, you have promised to recognize Israel in a way that previous presidents have failed. You have said you will move the American Embassy to Jerusalem. God has promised to bless those who bless His chosen people of Israel, and He will curse those who curse them. I applaud your stance on Israel.

There will be a loud outcry from satanic voices who want Israel eliminated. Read your Bible to understand that God gave that land to Israel forever. Study prophecy and you will understand that God has not abandoned Israel. One day the Jewish nation will recognize that Jesus Christ was their Messiah and when they finally acknowledge Him, He will fight for them. Until that day, strong and brave men like you need to stand behind Israel. There is a blessing in doing so.

God told Abraham “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed” (Genesis 12:3).

God gave the land to Israel. Dividing the land and creating a so-called Palestinian State will only bring God’s anger upon those who promote this affront to God. In the recent past America has been hit by many disasters each time our government has snubbed Israel or forced them to give up land. Doing what is right in God’s eyes is always the right thing to do. Mr. Trump, stand behind Israel.

Mr. President, you have been elected at a time in history that is like none other. Those who have eyes to see and ears to hear know that end time Biblical prophecy is being fulfilled. I urge you to study all areas of the Bible, including prophecy.

“For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes in divers places. All these are the beginnings of sorrows” (Matthew 24:7-8)

We live in a time that all signs point to as being a final generation prior to God’s wrath coming upon all nations. America will not be an exception. Your leadership will be a great influence upon the people of the United States and also people in other nations. The decisions you make will be felt throughout the world. Please, sir, take every decision you face to God in prayer, then listen for His answer.

“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Seek God’s counsel and He will direct you.

Mr. President, your opponent in this election called me deplorable. If being deplorable means standing for godly values, then I am deplorable in the eyes of the liberals. Oddly enough, things I find deplorable are murdering precious babies in the womb and selling their body parts for profit, rioting for days on end while destroying property and lives in protest of a perceived violent act, same sex marriage which is an abomination in the eyes of God, American jobs lost because corporations move to foreign countries with no penalty, generational welfare, terrorism, and just about everything the liberal left stands for. Their immature tactics and name calling are an embarrassment to this great nation.

The liberal left lost the election but their temper tantrums continue. I am not ashamed to be deplorable in the eyes of the liberals and the likes of your opponent in this past election. Most of all I am not ashamed of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

“For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed” (Romans 10:11).

Sir, keep your heart turned to God. Bring dignity back to the office of president and to America.

Mr. President, we are all sinners saved by grace. You have made many mistakes, but so have I and every other human on earth. Your enemies have pointed out your words and actions towards women, though they have selective memories when it comes to previous presidents and Hollywood stars. If you have truly accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then you, sir, have been forgiven.

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8)

Don’t take His grace for granted. Temptations will be placed in your path, but God will always provide a way for you to escape the temptations around you.

“Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him” (James 1:12).

King David was a great leader and was known as a man after God’s own heart, yet even he had his moments of weakness. What separates him from lesser men is that when his sin was brought to his attention he repented, which means he didn’t try to justify himself or make excuses. He saw the sin in his actions, fell on his face before God, and asked to be forgiven.

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).

Confess to Jesus and He will forgive. A strong leader will humble himself before God.

Mr. President, I’m sure that you will never read this commentary. My voice is small but it reflects the heart of many Americans “from the urban sprawl of Detroit to the windswept plains of Nebraska” and may I add from sea to shining sea. Surround yourself with godly men to advise you. I hope your campaign promises and the speech you gave when you placed your hand on the Holy Bible and swore the oath of office weren’t just hollow words.

I voted for you because I believe you are a man who is a strong leader and capable of following through on your promises. I hope that as the days go on you will lean on Jesus in all things. “The LORD is my strength and song, and is become my salvation” (Psalm 118:14). Let the Lord be your strength and your guide.

Mr. President, I pray for you, your family, and this nation.

God bless you all,

Nathele Graham
