Trump and Reagan: What I Saw

John Belt

I’ve been sitting on these words for a while, not wanting to release them because of the political nature of them. From what I can recall, this is the first time I’ve received anything this significant in the political sphere regarding a president. With that I’ve grappled on whether to share it or not. I can remember years ago saying to the Lord, if all I do is deliver the words that you have given me then I’ve done my part. With that I’ve been very strongly impressed to share what I have been shown concerning the upcoming election.


In August of 2015, before any of the Republican debates had taken place, I had a dream where I saw that Ronald Reagan was alive and running again for office. I was very surprised to see this happening as in my mind he was obviously deceased. He was back, running for another term of the Presidency. I could feel hope and an anticipation of good things in my heart rise as I experienced this dream. Just a few days after the dream I discovered that Donald Trump was using the very same slogan that Ronald Reagan had used, “Make America Great Again!” and was surprised at the connection.


A couple of weeks/months later I had a dream where I saw Donald Trump in an office with the American flag draped over his back. As I saw the image I heard the words “state of the nation”. I immediately understood this to mean that Donald Trump is a representation of the state our nation is currently in. As well, it looked as if he would be the next President of the United States. To elaborate on the “state of the nation”, there is a connection between a large portion of the nation concerning what is wanting to be heard and needing to be done concerning the big issues of America. In his simple message, Trump is hitting a chord in what he is saying that resonates with many people of this nation. I believe there is a positive and negative side to this. Regardless of the details, it is a chord he is striking on the issues that the majority of people want to hear and get done concerning our nation. As well, he is striking the chord of dissatisfaction in the extreme “political correctness” and the political apathetic passivity towards the deterioration of our nation.


In this other dream I?was at a country club. Everyone was there to show their support for whatever candidate running for president. There was a table with voting paper and a flask of anointing oil next to it. At first I walked by it and I could feel that many there were not supportive of Trump so I went my way. Then I came back and it was a younger crowd. I took a piece of the paper and wrote on it, Looking forward to a fun ride for the next 4 years! Donald Trump 2016! Then poured the flask of anointing oil on top of his name written on the voting paper. There was a feeling of exhilaration with this as well as positive expectation with this “go for it” element to it. In this it seemed that Trump at some point was going to have an appeal for the younger generation.


The day before the Indiana primaries I had a vision of a shiny golden trumpet being turned around, ready to blow. At the time of the vision I had no idea what it was referring to but the next day Donald ?Trump? had a major ?turnaround? landslide victory in the state of Indiana that caused all other Republican candidates to drop from the race.


Some things I like about Donald Trump, some things I don”t but does it really matter? What does matter is whether God has chosen him to the be the next President of the USA. Again, just like many of you, there are areas I agree with him on and some areas I don’t. Do I think he is trying to hide some secret agenda? No, I do believe he sincerely wants to help America.

We don’t put our trust in man but maybe God has appointed him for this position for this time. Sometimes he says things he shouldn’t, puts his foot in his mouth, etc but that is what is attractive to many people. He is real, rude, imperfect, not trying to guard his words, and overshares his thoughts more than he should. The straight-forward kind of language is what causes many people to say “Finally, here is someone who is not trying to be politically correct”.

We have to remember someone can have all the right words and not be sincere. Donald Trump has no problem keeping it simple and straight to the point. Is he the man for this position? From what I’ve been shown I believe so. Whatever the case, if it is God’s plan we need to pray for the man. Another thought, Jesus had a harder time with “perfect people” and “religious people” than he did “tax collectors and sinners”. Those who were steeply ingrained in the religious political systems fought against Him and put Him to death. I’m not so sure that Trump falls into either of these categories.

God was able to use a donkey to speak to Balaam (Numbers 22:8). Do you think God might be able to use Donald Trump? God controls the hearts of, not only believers, but kings. (Proverbs 21:1) There are many things that can cause us to play the “neutral card” in this election, but God is not respecting that option. By not choosing, we have chosen. It seems that God is giving us an opportunity here. Just as many things He asks us to do, it can be offensive to the natural mind. Please note that I’m not saying Trump will be the next president, although he may be. We still need to go out, vote and support.

As you have now read this, pray about it. Don’t get upset, but seek the Lord and see if this might be true. We are quick to disqualify people, but maybe there is something the Lord sees that others don’t. His thoughts and ways are higher than ours.


Here is a video by Fox News that was just brought to my attention on 5-19-2016. “Here is a historian that is comparing Trump to Reagan… interesting.

  1. John:
    I applaud your courage and obedience to honor your God and be true to your heart. Your message is resonating from many prophetic voices around the world and I am excited to see our Father’s faithfulness to tell His prophets BEFORE He moves. It seams our greatest assignment now is to pray that God’s people will recognize His voice and be spared the shaking that’s sure to come over the next months – – AND to be ready to voice His truth whenever we get the chance.
    Shalom, brother! One day I will drive the short distance to Cincinnati and greet you and your wife personally.
    Love and shalom!

  2. Thank you these words, and thank you for your obedience. I have heard a lot of negativity about Donald Trump from many of my peers. I am not saying I fully support him, but I have asked the Lord, “what if?” Promotion comes from Him, and I will be praying for direction in this election. God bless you!

  5. Well said!! Thanks for being faithful and sharing what God has given you!!

  6. This is an Awesome Word John! Thank You For your obedience to Abba. You were in Hale MI and we had the privilege of serving you & your wife twice as you did Ministry twice at our Former Church. Also seen you & Brandi right after you were married in OH. God is So good! God Bless You And Your Family Today And Everyday!

  7. Hi John, Because of a word of wisdom the Lord spoke to me about two months ago I’ve been very much aware of the fact that it will be the Christians who determine the outcome of the elections in the U.S. this year. It seems to me you’re being overly cautious about offending people. Of course, many won’t see things the way you do, even after you explain that it was the Lord who has shown you certain things. Even so, some will just shrug their shoulders and others will be miffed at you for saying things with which they don’t agree. But the important thing is that you are being obedient to deliver to people what the Lord has shown you, if that’s what He made clear He wants you to do.
    I can see that, in his mercy, God may use Mr. Trump to bring a respite to the rapid downward economic spiral that the U.S. is in. And he will certainly try to initiatiate changes to clean up the corruption and cronyism in Washington.
    However, I doubt that Donald Trump will address, in any meaningful way, other aspects of the moral rot that is eating away at the soul of the country. That’s where we Christians can make a difference. And if we don’t, then we will have acted like Lot did in Sodom and Gomorrah.
    Thanks for sharing what the Lord has shown you with us. Be blessed!!

    • Hi Peter,
      Thanks for your response. It is true that Christians may well determine that outcome. This is really the first time I’ve received such a clear message in the political sphere regarding a president. It was more of a matter of whether I was to share it or not. But God did not have any problem showing me to do so. What God gives in a word has the innate power to offend people. I do try to avoid adding my own hamburger helper to the message. Give my basic opinion on it and let it speak for itself. I’m not a “politically motivated person”, but God’s Presence is my main focus. As I’m sure you know, everything flows from that place of intimacy with God. The goal was to write this article in a way that would encourage people to seek the Lord personally, get the light on this for themselves.
      I definitely see how Trump could have some understanding to help the nation in several ways. On the moral end of the spectrum the only thing that will help this nation, will not be any president, but rather an awakening in God’s people.

  8. goodness christians lets wake up no brainer here antichrist trib 1world gov chip or trump da sory if this sounds harsh john your a total blessing to the body thank u

  9. I don’t normally say much but this I had to respond, I hung on every word, every detail of your sharing ……. interesting, awesome, well written how you laid it out in the spirit and in the natural. This is an exciting time a lot of things are unfolding …. I have an excitement. You sharing this I think is going to be more of a positive then you know. Even people not reading it I think it releases something in the spirit that paves a way . I agree with what you seen as it even speaks to my spirit of things I have seen and I believe others have too that is why we are seeing such a response in this election.

  10. Trump always made me a bit nervous. I have had trouble seeing Christian attributes in him. But as we all know, God has a habit of using imperfect people to accomplish His perfect will. I look with anticipation to see His plan unfold!

  11. Hey John so glad you shared this. When it was first transmitted over the radio roughly a year ago that Donald Trump was running for president; I had just left the gym and the Holy Ghost shared with me that ‘ Donald was being seasoned to be the President of the United States and that although he had a lot of rough edges they would be smoothed over time. I called my son and shared this who was taken back as it was considered a joke at the time. I have seen this play out and think his path is going to be narrowed even more as this next run in the general will provide even more seasoning. If the lord places him in office I think he will come to know the lord has placed him there beyond any shadow of a doubt. I think he will put things no one has even contemplated needed or could be done laying a solid foundation for years to come at every level of government.

  12. John, I think one of the main reasons so many people fought the idea and made fun of the idea of a Trump presidency is because deep inside they know we need a drastic change, but always look to the political elite to make that change. The Donald is nothing like anyone we’ve dealt with before for America’s top office. Satan is trying to tell people “Never Trump”, because he sees the Father’s hand in all of this. Throughout the whole bible, it’s always the unlikely person, God uses. If we will pray for Mr. Trump and our country and repent before the Lord for the sins of the USA, we could see a turnaround and even a born again experience for Mr. Trump. I’ve always felt lead to pray for physical protection for Donald and his family. The evil one is pulling out all the stops, but Jesus Christ is Lord! Amen
