Why did God Unseat Trump and Netanyahu?
The U.S. President Donald Trump and Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu were both unseated in 2021—for different reasons though. Trump being in the office for only four years had to step down after controversial and highly disputed election results. While Netanyahu did win most of the votes of the Israelis but failed to form a stable coalition of right-wing parties in order to remain in power.
The liberal left in America and Israel believes that they unseated Trump and Netanyahu, but did they?
Behold, El is mighty, but rejects no one, mighty in power and heart. He does not keep the wicked alive, but gives to the poor their right. He does not withdraw His eyes from the righteous and kings on the throne, and seats them forever, and they are exalted. (Job 36:5-7)
We should view these verses as telling us that the Almighty is in a full control of the earthly affairs as He installs and dethrones kings.
It is true, of course, as we are all aware, that as Elohim is mighty in power and authority, He will not allow some leftists to interfere in His affairs.
Nonetheless, the fact is that both Trump and Netanyahu were unseated in one year.
The war of attrition America lost
In 2001, President Bush started a very questionable war in Afghanistan that lasted until 2021 and soon after he started another, unjustifiable war in Iraq.
The Talibans had to regroup and fight a war of attrition, and just wait until the Americans leave: just as the Brits and Soviets left Afghanistan before them.
As of writing this article, the longest war the U.S. has ever waged is no longer. All U.S. troops were pulled out of Afghanistan in chaos after twenty years of war; a war that did not have to start in the first place.
Per Brown University estimate the war in Afghanistan (2001–2021) cost $2.261 trillion. America was literally bleeding as the military casualties in the War in Afghanistan totaled 2,361. As for the Afghans killed in the war, the numbers are uncertain.
Biden defended his decision to withdraw the U.S. troops but could not defend the disastrous end of the war. Biden is the only president in the history of the U.S. who left behind American citizens to the enemy. Actually, it was not his decision to end the longest war of America but President Trump’s.
After a prolonged fight with the Washington establishment (the Swamp), President Trump did not endorse his predecessors (Bush and Obama) strategic error that Iran could and should be appeased. He took a decisive and firm response to the mullah’s ambitions to acquire nuclear weapons and kept them in check until the end of his term as a president.
In contrast to the Bush and Obama administrations, after only four years in the office, President Donald Trump left the world in peace. It is remarkable that after WWII he is the only president of the U.S. of America who did not start a war, invade, or attack a foreign country.
In four years, President Trump achieved more than all U.S. presidents in the recent history had ever achieved. President Trump,
- Recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and moved the American embassy to Jerusalem.
- Acknowledged Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan heights and the legitimacy of the Israeli settlements in Judea and Samaria.
- Removed the United States from the United Nations Human Rights Council due to its anti-Israel bias.
- and the last but not the least, President Trump brokered historic peace agreements between Israel and Arab countries, such as the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Sudan, which no other U.S. president had ever achieved. As a result, more countries expressed their willingness to open embassies in Jerusalem.
On the domestic front, President Trump began indeed to make America great again by having created the most favorable climate for the U.S. economy to boom. The unemployment went to a record-low rate. The borders were secured, and the uncontrolled immigration stopped. President Trump protected the unborn, the traditional family, and religious freedom.
There was nothing that could stop President Trump winning a second term in the White House; he was marching towards re-election until … a tiny virus came.
The Swamp (domestic and foreign) did not miss the miracle that came from China and did everything possible (lawful and unlawful) to take President Trump down. And they indeed succeeded.
Only four months in the office Biden undid everything President Trump achieved and brought the world closer to the brink of war: Russia and Ukraine were close to war; China invaded Hong Kong and looked to Taiwan. North Korea demonstrated a new ballistic missile for Biden’s inauguration, and with the money back Iran became more fearless and daring than ever. All owing to the incompetent and bewildered Biden.
But Trump’s righteous deeds are not left unnoticed in heaven. President Trump will remain in the history of the U.S. as the most pro-family, pro-life, pro-America, pro-Israel president. And the last but not the least President Trump brokered a deal no one of his predecessors (not even Netanyahu) could have dreamed of: the peace between Israelis and Arabs, the Abraham Accords.
President Trump rightly can be called a true peacemaker and the most righteous president in the history of America. And if there is a check list in heaven for a righteous king, President Trump must have all boxes checked.
Benjamin Netanyahu Ismael’s longest serving prime minister had a versed familiarity with the ways of Washington. He learned those ways while he was a young politician in the position of Israel’s ambassador to the U.N. Headquarter in New York City. There Netanyahu and Rabbi Schneerson (the Rebbe), the Lubavitch Chabad leader, first met in 1984.
As quoted by Breaking Israel News, the Rebbe told Netanyahu: “You will fight with 119 people” perhaps alluding to the members of Knesset (Israel’s Knesset has 120 seats). This happened to be true, if the Rebbe had seen Netanyahu’s troubles in the recent years to form stable coalition.
On the same line of prophecy, Rabbi Dov Kook said, “When the government of Netanyahu crumbles, it is time to get ready for the Mashiach”.
Another spiritual leader, Rabbi Mosheh Ben Tov after attaching a mezuzah in the prime minister’s office, made a remarkable statement (watch the video).
He told the prime minister,
It is very important that your love of Israel continue until the Mashiach comes because you are going stay in office and are going to meet him. You are the one who will give him the keys to this office.
But until the government of Netanyahu had crumbled, he had many years in the office to become the longest-serving prime minister of Israel. As a politician of a high caliber, Netanyahu realized and related to leaders of the Gulf states that Iran was a threat to them as Israel was. He managed to convinced them of the Iranian threat, because he knew that the country the Arabs hated more than Israel was Iran. (Refer to The Iranian Threat That Causes Fear in the Land of the Living – Time of Reckoning Ministry for the complete understanding of the matter.)
Convinced by Netanyahu, the Arab Gulf states having a clandestine ally on their side started to cooperate with Israel in their existential struggle against the common enemy, despite Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran.
In the four years of the Trump administration, Netanyahu saw his dream fulfilled: the U.S. moved its embassy to Jerusalem and the recognition of the Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria. The observant Israelis loved him, the leftists hated him.
But, Netanyahu’s successes were quickly and completely undone by the Biden-Bennett tandem.
In his first days as an appointee, Biden made it clear that he was more than willing to go in the footsteps of his mentor. As soon as the mullahs of Iran and the Palestinian terrorists received the money from Biden, the terror by proxy in the Land of the living resumed after four years of stability under President Trump. Just like Obama, who gave billions of dollars to Iran to invade Syria, Biden followed suit and convinced even the doubter that his administration is nothing less than an Obama franchise.
How about Bennett? Bennett just wanted to be in the big politics and travel to Washington.
So, why did Elohim remove Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu from office, if their accomplishments in the domestic and international arenas were successful?
This is why.
As in the days of Noach
According to The Book of Yashar, Noach and Methushelach (Noach’s grandfather) preached repentance for 120 years (see also 2Pe 2:5).
Behold I give you a period of one hundred and twenty years; if you will turn to me and forsake your evil ways, then will I also turn away from the evil which I told you, and it shall not exist, saith the Lord. (Yashar 5:8-10)
Noach and Methushelach spoke all the words of the Lord to the people, day after day of no avail.
The scene moves to the Book of Genesis, wherein Elohim said to Noach,
Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation. … Because for seven more days I am sending rain on the earth, forty days and forty nights, and shall wipe from the face of the earth all that stand that I created. (Gen 7:1-4)
And Noach brought into the ark from all living creatures that were upon earth, so that there was none left. And the rain had not descended until seven days after. And on that day, the Lord caused the whole earth to shake, the sun darkened, the foundations of the world raged, the whole earth was moved violently.
And the lightning flashed, the thunder roared, and all the fountains in the earth were broken up, such as was not known before, in order that there might be no more evil on earth. And at the end of seven days, in the six hundredth year of the life of Noach, the waters of the flood came upon the earth (Yashar 6:8-14).
Seven days of light to end darkness
“Because for seven days, I am sending rain on the earth”, why was this whole line of words necessary?
According to the Rabbinic tradition, the day the Creator said to Noach, “Because for seven days, I am sending rain on the earth” his grandfather Methushelach died.
A quick reference to Jubilees Table from the book Reckoning of Time – Time of Reckoning Ministry confirms that Methushelach died in the Sabbatical year 1649 from the creation at the age of 969 (see also Gen 5:27). That made the righteous Methushelach the longest-lived human in the history of mankind.
The following year, 1650, was Jubilee, when the Flood ended and the Creator made a covenant with the mankind represented by Noach; Noach was 601.
Now, where it is said in Gen 7:4 “Because for seven more days I am sending rain on the earth”, it is not explained after seven days of what.
But the tradition relates that for seven days before the Flood “the people heard a great commotion in the heaven” that signified “the end of the age”, as we read in Sanhedrin 108b.
And it came to pass, after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth. What was the nature of these seven days — Rav said: These were the days of mourning for Methuselah, thus teaching that the lamenting for the righteous postpones retribution.
And when the seven days of mourning ended, the fountains of the earth were broken up and the Creator brought the torrential rain that lasted forty days and forty nights.
If that was what indeed happened in the days of Noach, the world must have been in a dazzling light so strong and brilliant day and night that in the days of Isaiah the memory of that light of seven days was still alive.
And when the prophet wrote down the last days prophecy concerning the sevenfold light of the sun, that must have evoked the memory of seven days of a dazzling light prior to the Flood. We read,
Moreover, the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days… (Isa 30:26)
With all that said, we may conclude that as the seven days of an intense light signified the destruction of the wicked generation, so will there be seven days of a blazing light before the destruction of last wicked generation, as the Messiah seems to make a correlation between the time of his coming and the time of Noach, when he said, “And as the days of Noach so also shall the coming of the son of mankind be” (Mat 24:37-39).
Therefore, we may expect and hope that as the righteous Noach was given time for preparation and a specific day for judgment, so too the righteous in the last days will be given a forewarning of the impending judgment before Yeshua’s return.
So be it, but what does the Flood story teach us?
Were Trump and Netanyahu removed for no reason?
We have already pointed out that if Elohim rejects no righteous and does not withdraw His eyes from the righteous kings on the throne, and seats them forever, why did He unseated his righteous ones, President Trump and the Prime Minister Netanyahu?
The matter will become clear once we understand why the Almighty had to wait seven days until He opened the floodgates of the heavens and the earth.
It came to be, when people began to increase on the face of the earth, that the sons of Elohim saw that the daughters of men were very beautiful and they took them for wives.
The Creator decided that He would not strive with men forever in their going astray. When the creation became corrupted in the flesh and in the heart, He said, “I am going to wipe off man whom I have created from the face of the earth”.
But one man was found righteous, Noach, who was chosen to continue the human race. Noach was not the only righteous who left on the face of the earth; his grandfather, Methushelach, was still alive. Methushelach and Noach were preaching repentance for 120 years that fell on deaf ears.
Elohim waited for the righteous Methushelach to die a natural death, and had Noach lament the passing of his grandfather for seven days. After the seven days of lamenting ended, the first raindrops of the Flood started falling.
Why did Elohim wait for seven days to execute His judgment? The answer to our question is right there in a plain sight. Because the lamenting for the righteous postpones retribution.
Elohim did not want the righteous Methushelach to see the just but terrible judgment on the wicked, since He had already decided that from Noach new generations would begin to populate the earth. Methushelach already in advance age died peacefully at 969: for the sake of the righteous, the judgement was postponed but not reversed.
Likewise, Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu having found favor in YHVH’s eyes did not have to see the judgment of this generation as sitting leaders of their countries.
We do not know what the future will unfold, whether or not Trump and Netanyahu should seek re-election. But what we indeed know is that no righteous leaders should be found in power when the retribution comes.
Knowledge known to only a few will die out. If you feel blessed by these teachings of Time of Reckoning Ministry, help spread the word!
May we merit seeing the coming of our Mashiach speedily in our days!
