Trump’s Trip to the Middle East: Why three places? (Highly Prophetic)

We are told in inspiration that the final movements will be rapid ones; and indeed they are! If ever there was a time to be wide awake, seeking a true experience with Jesus, it is now!

From the pen of inspiration, we read:

When God’s people are at ease and satisfied with their present enlightenment, we may be sure that He will not favor them. It is His will that they should be ever moving forward to receive the increased and ever-increasing light which is shining for them. The present attitude of the church is not pleasing to God. There has come in a self-confidence that has led them to feel no necessity for more truth and greater light. We are living at a time when Satan is at work on the right hand and on the left, before and behind us; and yet as a people we are asleep. God wills that a voice shall be heard arousing His people to action. {5T 708.3}


As a people we are called individually to be students of prophecy. We must watch with earnestness that we may discern any ray of light which God shall present to us. We are to catch the first gleamings of truth; and through prayerful study clearer light may be obtained, which can be brought before others. {5T 708.2}

If your eyes were open, you would have noticed that President Trump’s first international (foreign) trip is very strategic, and it has great prophetic significance. He traveled to 3 major places! Why three places? All of these three places visited hold significance, and they have an impact on the world’s 3 great religious faiths believed to have developed out of Abraham. What were the three places visited? Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the Vatican!

One news article commenting on this fact said, “In his first foreign trip as President, which begins Friday (5/19/17), Trump has planned a pilgrimage of sorts, visiting the homelands of all three Abrahamic faiths — Judaism, Christianity and Islam — before heading to Europe for meetings with Pope Francis and NATO leaders.” (To read the whole article, click here)

Well over 50% of the world are either professing Christianity, Islam, or Judaism; and this trip was a desire to bring about a union of religion and politics, that would lead to world peace! Will it happen? Read on!

In all 3 places (though the method and politics were different) there was one thread of thinking that was uniquely and clearly the same in each of the speeches given by President Trump; and that was the need of unity among each of the nation’s religions and politics, that would lead to peace and security (safety). Notice this point in a transcript of the speech that the President gave in Saudi Arabia:

“And so this historic and unprecedented gathering of leaders—unique in the history of nations—is a symbol to the world of our shared resolve and our mutual respect. To the leaders and citizens of every country assembled here today, I want you to know that the United States is eager to form closer bonds of friendship, security, culture and commerce.”

For Americans, this is an exciting time. A new spirit of optimism is sweeping our country: in just a few months, we have created almost a million new jobs, added over 3 trillion dollars of new value, lifted the burdens on American industry, and made record investments in our military that will protect the safety of our people and enhance the security of our wonderful friends and allies — many of whom are here today.”

Now, where have we heard this type of language before? And what are we told would be the result of such a historic and prophetic movement? Notice what the Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:3:

For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

Time will not allow for detailed proof and an explanation of who the “they” are, but allow me to suggest that they are two great powers; and each of its representatives has a man at the head of it – a “man of peace” and a “man of safety (security)”. And when they unite for the purpose of bringing peace and safety, it will then be time for sudden destruction (the final generation).

It’s clear who the man is that is supposed to bring safety and security (it is President Trump, representing the U.S. of America), and this is what he said in his speech. But what about peace? He can’t bring about peace by himself. The Bible speaks of another man in Thessalonians called the “man of sin”. We read in 2 Thess. 2:2-4:

(verse 3) “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;”


(verse 4) “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”

This man of sin is not Christ, but antichrist. Now Christ is the true Prince of Peace (Is. 9:6), but this is a counterfeit man of peace. This is one who opposes Christ; who seeks to take the place of Christ. This is none other than the antichrist. There is only one man today who fits this description of the prophecy of the antichrist, given in 2 Thess. 2:3,4. In fact, the Bible (speaking of this false religious power) says concerning him in Daniel 8:24,25:

(verse 24)  “And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power [In other words, he will need some help; some military power to unite with him]: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.”


(verse 25) “And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.”

So this antichrist power that exalts and magnifies himself (this man of sin) will seek to use “peace” to destroy the people of God. Now, we know who the man of safety is, but who is this man magnifying himself to be God on earth (and would be considered at the same time as a “man of peace”)? There is only one person who can meet the specifications of this prophecy in the entire world; this antichrist power is none other than the pope of Rome. And this is no secret, practically the whole world looks upon him in this light. In fact, even the church of Rome will tell you this; but what many don’t know is that he is not Christ, but antichrist.

This is one of the books written by the Catholic church, to introduce him to the children. This is what the write up says: “In this 101st title in the St. Joseph Picture Books series offered by Catholic Book Publishing, children will discover, in simple words and full-color illustrations, the story of Pope Francis. From his time as a young boy on the soccer field in Argentina to his present role as head of the Catholic Church in Rome, this book introduces children to the 266th man to be named Pope. Youngsters will learn about his early life, his vocation, his special love for the poor, his election as Pope and the selection of his name, his simple acts of humility and mercy, and his favorite Saints. Pope Francis: Man of Peace from Catholic Book Publishing provides a perfect way for the children Pope Francis holds so dear to become acquainted with the Holy Father.”

So when the Bible says that, “they shall say peace and safety” and then “sudden destruction cometh…” (see 1 Thess. 5:3), it is simply showing us what must take place before the great time of travail, trouble, and world-wide, sudden destruction (crisis). What must happen before this final crisis (sudden destruction)? We must see two powers unite: one represented by the man of peace (the pope) and the other represented by a man who can supposedly bring safety and security (through strong military might) – represented by Trump, President of the U.S. of America.

Are “they”, Pope Fracis and President Trump, uniting? Are “they” saying peace and safety? The whole world before the election thought (based on each other’s comments) that they could never unite… but there stands prophecy, which said that they would! And that when they did unite, time would almost be finished! Well, you tell me dear reader, are they uniting? Are they saying “peace, safety, and security”?  Notice the following words that also formed a part of the president’s speech in Saudi Arabia. Notice, not only his use of words “peace and safety”, but notice the use of the prophetic imagery of stretching out his hands across the gulf to grasp hands with the powers of this world, to bring peace and safety (security):

“I stand before you as a representative of the American People, to deliver a message of friendship and hope. That is why I chose to make my first foreign visit a trip to the heart of the Muslim world, to the nation that serves as custodian of the two holiest sites in the Islamic Faith.”

“In my inaugural address to the American People, I pledged to strengthen America’s oldest friendships, and to build new partnerships in pursuit of peace. I also promised that America will not seek to impose our way of life on others, but to outstretch our hands in the spirit of cooperation and trust. Our vision is one of peace, security, and prosperity—in this region, and in the world.” (You can read the whole speech for yourself, by clicking on this link)

Where is this leading? Notice the words of the prophet:

When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with spiritualism, when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country [America] shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions, then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan and that the end is near. {5T 451}

My friends, this trip shows us that the end is almost here! In fact, where did the president go at the end of this trip? What does the quotation say would need to happen with the out-stretched hand? That it would “stretch across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power”.  Is that part of what is happening? Oh, yes! The president ended his tour not in Iran, but at the Vatican! Woe, prophecy is being fulfilled right before our very eyes!

Many things happened in the private 30 minute meeting held between Pope Francis and President Trump (too much to comment on here), but it is interesting to note the special symbolic gift given by the pope to the president. What was it? It was the symbol of the olive branch, a symbol the pope says stood for “peace”.

ABC news, commenting on this event, reported the exchange of words as follows:

“President Donald Trump and Pope Francis exchanged gifts today after their cordial, private meeting, which lasted about 30 minutes, at the Vatican.

Following standard practice, the pope gave rosaries to members of the visiting delegation, including Trump’s wife, Melania Trump; his daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump; and his son-in-law and adviser Jared Kusher.

Francis gave Donald Trump a large medal by a Roman artist, inscribed with an olive branch, a symbol of peace.

Francis also gave Trump this year’s “message of peace” with a personalized inscription.

“We can use peace,” Trump said. “That’s so beautiful. Thank you.”

We see the same thread of thinking! Yes, sudden destruction is about to take place. The question is, are you ready, dear reader? I want to be; how about you? Our greatest need is a close, intimate, personal friendship with Jesus Christ!

And do you know what one of the last words of the president was to the pope? I WON’T FORGET WHAT YOU SAID! (You don’t have to take my words, listen to it for yourself)

1) Video one  2) Video two

(or, read it here; headline from NBC, “President Donald Trump To Pope Francis: I Won’t Forget What You Said | NBC Nightly News”)

Truly, the whole world is about to wonder after the beast (Rev. 13:3). We are told that  the Pope, the “Man of sin” or “mystery of iniquity” will form a great part of the events leading up to the National Sunday Law and the end of the world! We can see this happening today right before our eyes:

All need wisdom carefully to search out the mystery of iniquity that figures so largely in the winding up of this earth’s history. . . . In the very time in which we live, the Lord has called His people and has given them a message to bear. He has called them to expose the wickedness of the man of sin who has made the Sunday law a distinctive power, who has thought to change times and laws, and to oppress the people of God who stand firmly to honor Him by keeping the only true Sabbath, the Sabbath of creation, as holy unto the Lord.”  {TM 117.5}

Time will not (in this brief article) allow us to outline everything that prophecy says would take place, but I hope you are seeing a picture beginning to form. The presidential administration of both Obama and Trump have been highly prophetic; both proving that we are living in the final generation. For more information, see one of our recent prophetic series entitled Another Ark to Build, that explains what is developing in America, the presidential administration, and the world. You will also learn what we need to do in order to prepare! Truly, it’s time to seek the Lord like never before, and help as many others as we can before it is everlasting too late!
