A "Trump" Presidency Is Still At Hand…

But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. (Isaiah 59:2)

"Son, many have I hid My face from in this hour and they will wander about aimlessly in the wilderness due to their iniquities yet many shall I grant My mercy unto for My divine precedence is still sovereign and it still TRUMPS the wicked plans of men!"

"Son, it is My precedence that still TRUMPS the yoke! It is My precedence that still TRUMPS the plot of the enemy! It is My precedence that still TRUMPS the sinful plans of the unjust who seek to reign over My chosen vessels. For this is the hour that I Am hiding My face from those who seek to separate themselves from Me by their own iniquity and I Am revealing Myself to the few who know the hour of My Divine precedence is STILL at a hand! "

WE DECREE AND DECLARE NOW THAT GOD’S SOVEREIGN PRECEDENCE TRUMPS EVERY MANNER OF DECEIT, POVERTY, DISTRACTION, AND DYSFUNCTION IN YOUR LIFE AND WE ELECT AND DECLARE GOD, OUR FATHER, OUR RIGHTEOUS RULER OVER ALL THINGS!
