Chuck Pierce of Glory of Zion International Ministries has been waiting for the 2016 presidential election for eight years.
Having already prophesied the rise of President Barack Obama while traveling the country in 2005—three years before his election in 2008—the Lord caught him up a few months before that election with a new word about the future of the country. He said it’s being played out right now.
“We were praying in Liberty Park, in New Jersey … there were about 2,000 of us gathered there,” he said in an exclusive interview with Charisma Caucus. “He showed me that in eight years, there would be a triumph of the people. He showed me 21 states are in alignment, but each could come into alignment.
“So, I asked how America will shift, and He took me state by state. It took four hours. But in the end, He told me, ‘America needs to learn how to play the trump card.’ That was eight years ago.
The “trump card,” Pierce said, is Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, who he has been watching the Lord put into a prominent position over the course of this election cycle. He hasn’t endorsed the businessman-turned politician, but he believes the billionaire will play a key role in our nation’s future.
The 2016 election and its outcome have far less to do with Trump, however, and much more to do with prayer and making timely decrees that will shift the power structures in America. There are only two possible outcomes, he added: America either makes “an incredible shift” to realign those structures with the Lord, or new structures will be put in place that will control our nation greatly for years to come.
Mr. Trump is very—not part of the structure,” he said. “He’s going against the structure, which has turned our country away from the Lord rather than back to Him. The only way we’re going to see our nation move back to the Lord is if we tear down the structure, which is stopping justice.”
Pierce said the election all boils down to the Supreme Court, and he urges Christians to vote for what is necessary to bring back God-ruling order to the high court. Likening Trump—who has pledged to install judges of that type if elected—to Jephthah from the book of Judges, he said Christians need to “get past liking a candidate,” noting the Lord used Jephthah—”a very wicked man”—and others to restore Israel.
“When the Lord removed the Jezebel spirit out of Israel, He didn’t do it with the existing structures. He called up three judges,” he said. “Without those three judges, the right prophetic voice and the transformers, it wouldn’t have happened.
“We’re rallying God’s people. And now we’ll watch as God begins to take America back again.”
Pierce said, regardless of how the election goes, there will be a “major shift” in America. If Trump wins, the U.S. will be “better aligned” economically with other nations, and Israel will once again have a strong ally. If Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton wins, we will drift further from Israel and, as he put it, “the Cold War will get colder.”
“My heart would be for the Lord to let your people play that triumph—that means trump card,” he said. “We need to have a more triumphant spirit in the nation, and Christians need to learn to pray more strategically. We need to be better timed in how we make decrees.”
He also said Christians need to vote based on how they want to be visited by the Lord.
“In the Bible, one of the definitions of ‘visitation’ is to cast a vote, in an overseer role,” he said. “Christians have become caught up in whether or not we have a good candidate to vote for, but that’s not the issue. We should vote for visitation.
“How do you want to be visited? Then, that is how you should vote. We should be voting to overturn the structure in America.”
Pierce said the Lord told him Ohio, Nevada and North Carolina will be the key states in the election, particularly North Carolina, which he said will be “the deciding factor” in what will happen in America. But even as we prepare for Election Day, he said Christians need to be prepared for what comes afterward.
“The body of Christ needs to do our part,” he said. “We need to be sure we’re pressed in for a change of our nation, and then leave the results up to the Lord.”
If Clinton wins, he says he will “pray through and walk with it,” but reminded Christian Americans that a new movement has arrived for the country. America won’t be in the same prayer movement it has been in.
“We’re really in for some big surprises,” he said. “I think America is more volatile than we know, and whichever way the election goes, we’re not going to be in the same type of nation we’ve known in the past. That’s why I wrote in my book a chapter on why Christians need to learn war.”
Pierce is doing his part to help prepare the body of Christ. Recently, he shared another word he received from the Lord about the changes that are coming for America.
Right now, he’s traveling across the country with Dutch Sheets. In the past, he’s traveled to all 50 states, but said the Lord told him to visit 22 key cities this year.
“We find an apostolic church that is open to gathering, and we get the word out and start praying and gathering,” he said. “We should get about 1,000—maybe 1,500 or 2,000 people.”
Pierce and Sheets were set to gather with believers in Las Vegas on Wednesday night as part of their 22-city swing through the country. Pierce said they are “rallying the troops” and praying for the nation to move back to the Lord again.
“That’s the real key for us Christians,” he said. “Do you have faith to pray? The Lord warned us a lot about the kingdoms on Earth, but His kingdom is a nation above nations, … we know that prayer can change the course of a nation.”

LIKE EVERY OTHER COMMITTED DISCIPLE OF JESUS…. I HAVE WATCHED IN HORROR AND DISBELIEF AS THE AMERICAN PRESIDENTIAL RACE HAS UNFOLDED !!! HOW CAN A NATION OF 330 MILLION PEOPLE …..GIVEN OUR CHRISTIAN HISTORY ……BE LEFT WITH THESE TWO HORRIBLE PRESIDENTIAL CHOICES
THESE TWO CANDIDATES HAVE THE HIGHEST UNFAVORABLE RATINGS OF ANY TWO CANDIDATES IN AMERICAN PRESIDENTIAL HISTORY
CLEARLY THE BEST CANDIDATES THAT AMERICA HAS TO OFFER FOR BOTH POLITICAL PARTIES ARE NOT ON THE BALLOT THIS ELECTION CYCLE VOTER TURNOUT IN THE LAST PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION CYCLE OF ELIGIBLE VOTERS WAS AN ANEMIC 57.2 %
THE CONCEPT OF A DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT, ORIGINATED WITH THE GREEKS IN THEIR CITY STATES . THE WORD IDIOT, COMES FROM THE GREEK WORD ” IDIOTIS ” WHICH MEANT SOMEONE WHO IS ONLY CONCERNED WITH THEIR PRIVATE PERSONAL LIFE.
TO THE GREEKS, AN IDIOT WAS A PERSON WHO WAS NOT INTERESTED IN THE PUBLIC OR CIVIC AREAS OF LIFE, WHO CHOSE NOT TO BE INVOLVED IN THE POLITICAL PROCESS IN THEIR CITY OR STATE. WHAT IS GOING WRONG IN AMERICA
I believe the answer to the question of what is wrong with America, is that we as a nation are under a direct punitive curse as the consequence of our nations rebellion against the biblical morals of the 10 Commandments
And then……to write into law, lifestyle practices that normalize behavior that is in direct opposition to the clear commands of scripture, will shift the culture into a moral death spiral !
There has always been sin in American…….but to legislate sin into law ….that which is in open rebellion and defiance to the clear teaching of scripture, will end up teaching the next generation to disregard the eternal morals and design of God.
To see the rainbow lights symbolizing the LGBT political agenda over the White House the night that our Supreme Court legalized homosexual marriage, I believe was the tipping point for our nation.
That same night of the Supreme Courts affirming decision of gay marriage in America as the law of the land, there was to be a presidential music concert that just happened to be a ” night of gospel music ” with some of the great icons of American gospel music !
To have a presidential gospel concert inside the American White House with the rainbow lights of the LGBT shining over it was a prophetic picture of a nation that has entered into Babylonian captivity. The word Babylon means confusion by mixture or to pour confusion over your head !
Last night I had a visitation from the Holy Spirit to put in a scriptural context the choice before us in this and future democratic elections.
JESUS HAD TWO DISCIPLES THAT ARE A ……PROPHETIC PICTURE OF OUR CURRENT CHOICES FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
JUDAS OR SIMON PETER
Jesus had two extremely dysfunctional disciples of the 12 apostles He chose to represent Him .
Judas Iscariot was called and chosen by Jesus, but because of greed, Judas ended up allowing Satan to have entrance into his life, causing him to violate Gods moral code, resulting in spiritual blindness, that distorted his judgment, and his ability to correctly interpret kingdom reality . Judas was a thief before he was a traitor, stealing money from the ministry purse. He betrayed Jesus for 30 pieces of silver and then kept up the pretense of being a committed disciple by kissing Jesus on the very night of his betrayal.
Simon Peter was also called and chosen by Jesus Himself. The name Simon, means a ” reed blowing in the wind “, meaning outside influences could easily control his opinions and actions . The name Peter, is a prophetic picture of a gem stone being refined and shaped to be set in its proper place in order to be placed in Gods prophetic purposes . The dual name ” Simon Peter ” represents a person who could either be super flaky or stable and responsible depending on the situation .
According to scripture, Simon Peter was a natural leader and owned a fishing business. When under the influence of the Holy Spirit he was powerful & prophetic in God. When controlled by his flesh, Simon Peter was conceited, proud, self centered, self promoting, competitive, with a tendency to be petty and make rash judgments, and was continually overly talkative, We all know that both Judas and Simon Peter betrayed Jesus . The question is …..who had the greater betrayal ….Judas or Simon Peter ?
I believe Simon Peter had the greater betrayal because, he was in the inner circle of the three, he had received a personal revelation that Jesus was the Messiah, also he was on the mount of transfiguration and saw the glorification of Jesus personally. We see a key in Jesus dealing with Simon Peter in the name he called him. When Jesus talked to the flesh man He addressed him as Simon……the reed man .When Jesus addressed him as Peter, it was when he was under the influence of the Holy Spirit and advancing the cause of Christ .
So the question each born again disciple of Jesus Christ must ask himself in this presidential election is this ……who is Judas and who is Peter in this election .
We in America have two terrible options for President in this election………just like Jesus who also had two horrible disciples He was grooming for apostolic leadership.
America is a ” representative democracy ” meaning that, who you vote for in effect represents your morals and values manifesting though their policies and political platforms….. and then God, attaches your voting history to your eternal account.
In other words…..God looks at your voting choice as either a positive choice or negative choice……either binding or loosing righteousness or wickedness in the nation.
Matt 6:33…But seek first the kingdom of God and His moral righteousness, and all these things shall be ……..added to you.
There are no perfect political candidates……but just like there were some Kings of Israel, that were rated more evil by God Himself in the Old Testament record, so it is with our two choices for president this election cycle.
KING AHAB…..DID EVIL MORE THAN ALL BEFORE HIM
1 Kings 16:30…..Now Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the Lord, ….more than all who were before him.
M ANASSEH………DESTROYED ALL THE MORAL & SPIRITUAL REFORMS
2 Kings 21:2 And Manasseh did evil in the sight of the Lord, according to the abominations of the nations whom the Lord had cast out before the children of Israel.
2 Kings 21:3 For he rebuilt the high places which Hezekiah his father had destroyed; he raised up altars for Baal, and made a wooden image, as Ahab king of Israel had done; and he worshiped all the host of heaven and served them.
W ITCHCRAFT…..CHILD MURDER
2 Kings 21:6 Also he made his son pass through the fire, practiced soothsaying, used witchcraft, and consulted spiritists and mediums. He did much evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke Him to anger.
E XAMPLE… …if you knowingly voted for a person who is pro abortion, and who is aggressively promoting policies that continue the murder of children….I believe that the blood of those innocent children are on your hands .
LONG AFTER THE PERSON IS OUT OF OFFICE
Long after the person is out of the office of president …..the policies they pushed and caused to be made into laws will continue to shape the American culture for all of our children and grandchildren for decades to come .
Long after that person is out of the presidential office, their choices for the judges in our nation will continue to echo their policies and morals for decades to come.
PILATE OFFERING THEM A CHOICE BETWEEN JESUS AND BARABBAS
Matt 27:24…When Pilate saw that he could not prevail at all, but rather that a tumult was rising, he took water and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, “I am innocent of the blood of this just Person. You see to it.”
Matt 27:25..And all the people answered & said, “His blood be on us & on our children.
YOU CANNOT WASH YOUR HANDS, FROM VOTING IN THIS ELECTION
YOUR VOTING OR NON VOTING DECISION, RELEASES EITHER BLOOD OR BLESSING ON YOUR CHILDREN
JESUS PREDICTS PETERS BETRAYAL AND RESTORATION
Luke 22:31 And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat.
Luke 22:32 But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.”
Jesus addressed Peter as ….Simon, Simon….a ” double flesh man “…..self centered, arrogant, sensual, proud, foolish in words and deeds .
Judas on the other hand was cold and calculating, greedy for money, betraying Jesus for thirty pieces of silver, working with the corrupt religious leaders to destroy Jesus.
Without having ” prophetic eyes ” we will vote for a candidate based on what we see in the flesh, not based on what Gods plans are for the future of our nation and our children.
Even though Simon Peter had truly outrageous behavior, Jesus knew Simon Peters heart was turntable back into the purposes of God unlike the heart of Judas.
Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump both have indefensible past histories of bad behavior, but the question you have to ask yourself …..which one is Simon Peter and which one is Judas.
The Obama White House covered in rainbow light to identify with LGBT activistIn an interview with PJ Media, Christian speaker and author Eric Metaxas warned that the LGBT agenda is driving the federal government to do the very thing the First Amendment forbids — establish a religion, and a religion fundamentally at odds with American liberty. “We’re in a very dangerous place as a nation because religious liberty is at the heart of our liberties and … you have [an] activist government effectively establishing a religion … by taking very strong positions on ultimate questions like the human person, on sexuality,” Metaxas declared.
Metaxas spoke with PJ Media about his new book If You Can Keep It: The Forgotten Promise of American Liberty. He argued that the new LGBT restrictions on religious liberty effectively establish a religion because they elevate some approaches to human identity over others.
When the government is taking positions that are at odds with the position of people — let’s say of Christian faith — they are picking winners when they need to be agnostic, they need not to do that,” he declared.
The author also praised Republican nominee Donald Trump on the issue of religious liberty. “I think he understands it infinitely better than Hillary Clinton, that much I’m convinced of,” Metaxas declared. “Even if he were utterly ignorant of it, he would be better than Hillary Clinton because she seems desirous of eliminating what I think of as real constitutional religious liberty.” But the author does not think Trump ignorant of the issue — in fact, he said The Donald has “shocked me in a good way” on this issue.
Trump has brought up the Johnson Amendment, which caused churches to fear losing their 501c3 tax-exempt status and “has effectively muzzled pastors in the pulpits.” To Metaxas, “that reveals an amazing level of understanding of the issue that most people like me don’t have.”
“I’ve never heard any Christian, any zealot for religious liberty ever suggesting that,” the author admitted. “So Trump once again is you know ahead of the curve — it’s very positive, shocking to me.”
Religious freedom is central to American freedom, Metaxas argued. He presented the “Golden Triangle of Freedom,” the idea that freedom fosters faith, faith undergirds virtue, and virtue makes true freedom possible. This notion of freedom was central to the Founding Fathers, and Metaxas wrote the book to educate people about it.
“When you look at the Founders, they have a vision of America which is monolithically pro-virtue, pro-faith, and pro-freedom,” the author explained. “If you think you can achieve the same ends by different means, I’m interested, but the geniuses who put together the Constitution … they didn’t see any other way.” American liberty is a true world historical feat, and it is slipping away from our grasp, the author argued. “I think it’s our job to teach these things to each other, to kids especially, to let them know this is what the Founders gave us — this is a treasure.”
He chillingly added, “We’ve got to appreciate how fragile it is, and we’ve got to understand that it’s going away very quickly unless we begin to take it very seriously.”
“I don’t think conservatives have understood this well enough,” Metaxas declared. He pointed to President George W. Bush’s approach to freedom in Iraq as a strong example. The author attacked Bush’s naiveté, “going into war and saying that freedom is our natural state … and therefore the people in Iraq are going to suddenly … they’re gonna put on tricorn [sic] hats and start penning fiery pamphlets like Thomas Paine.”
“That doesn’t happen,” Metaxas stated, flatly. “You need a virtuous, religious population roughly speaking or it doesn’t happen.”
He argued that neither liberals nor conservatives understand just how fragile and tenuous American freedom really is. “If we understood it, he would have gotten pushback on this. He didn’t get pushback on this.” Instead, liberals accused Bush of lying about WMDs, something completely besides the point.
“The point is — yes, everyone deserves freedom, but not everyone can handle freedom,” Metaxas argued. “They need to be prepared for freedom.”
His book carefully distinguishes between the ancient versions of freedom — Athens’ democracy and Rome’s republic — and America’s hard-won experiment. Athens and Rome (along with all other societies besides medieval Europe and the modern West) had slavery, and did not include women. America expanded its freedom to include everyone.
Chillingly, he warned, “We in America are no longer prepared for freedom.”
We are losing the freedom because we have ceased to know how to keep it.” This is why Metaxas wrote his book: to explain the real nature of American freedom, why it depends on religious liberty, and how we can preserve it for the future.
Metaxas did not offer unequivocal praise for Trump, but he did emphasize a key difference between The Donald and Hillary. “Trump, you can say anything you like about him but in the end I do believe he cares about America and loves America.”
I get the impression from Hillary Clinton that [she] is all about power and social engineering, that she’s sort of at war with the Founders’ view of America,” he declared.
I worry about my country, and I don’t worry about my country because it’s my country, I worry about my country because it’s a country that God put in the world to bless the other nations of the world.” Metaxas emphasized that many around the world see America as a beacon of liberty.
He quoted Lincoln, who “was so religious and so enamored of the Founders’ vision that he called us the ‘almost chosen people.'” Like the Jews, God chose Americans to bless the world: now with a new understanding of Himself, but with a new understanding of freedom.
If Americans do not rediscover the secret of American liberty, they will be unable to bring its light to other countries. “We will not be able to spread it around the world if we don’t have it ourselves.”
