Wait--Donald Trump Fulfilled a Major Bible Prophecy on Monday?
The Proposed Prophecy
The Christian-Bible verse Revelation 12:14 reads,
"And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent."
Dr. Irvin Baxter of Endtime Ministries claims that Donald Trump has fulfilled this prophecy as of Monday August 13th, 2018.
Consequently, this is where the examination of Dr. Baxter's claim begins.
A Serpent... in the Wilderness?
One of the most noted stories in the Old Testament was the story of the children of Israel's time spent in the wilderness because of their inability to trust God after He had delivered them from captivity and promised them a better future. Therefore, it is commonly concluded that the wilderness being spoke of in the verse from Revelations is Israel.
The serpent is the animal commonly associated with the Devil, stemming from multiple expressions from Biblical figures describing him as such, as well as the well-known story of the serpent deceiving Eve in the Garden of Eden who is confidently agreed upon as the Devil.
Dr. Baxter has not kept secret with his belief that the "two wings of a great eagle..." in the aforementioned Bible verse is referring to the United States of America, as he is often inquired of this belief from callers on his radio program - Irvin publicly reaffirms this belief weekly. Dr. Baxter "fool-proofs" this claim with historical backing, citing the United States' removal from the British Empire in the 17th century as fulfilling the following verse,
"I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea.
And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.
The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it." - Daniel 7:2-4
Marrying this scripture from Daniel with Revelations 12:14, Baxter claims that America is in-fact the great eagle who flies into "the wilderness" to protect her for times, time, and half a time, or three and a half years.
Here is where things begin to get interesting!

Dr. Baxter's Evidence
Dr. Baxter claimed on-air during the August 14th, 2018 edition of his television and radio program End of The Age that Donald Trump had signed a defense bill on Monday, August 13th that allocated Israel up to $550 million in military funding, with $500 million being designated for missile-defense cooperation, and $50 million being used to detect enemy tunnels leading into Israel. The development and enactment of this bill was beginning to happen as of today (Wednesday, August 15th) per Dr. Baxter's testimony.
Dr. Baxter notes that this development is especially important because of the Islamic pressure that is mounting concerning the Gaza strip. Additionally there is significant pressure accumulating around the rebuilding of the temple, the dispute over who owns the temple mount, and the question of whether or not Israel has a right to exist. It was essential that the United States pick whom they were to defend, and it is apparent that we are defending Israel.
Furthermore, Dr. Baxter stated that the annual funding to Israel as a result of this bill totals $3.8 billion. Additionally, Republican senators have moved to overturn part of the bill in order to allow more money to be sent Israel's way, as portions of the bill were originally constructed during President Barack Obama's time in office.
To top it all off, Dr. Baxter states that this bill is designed to send Israel these funds for the next 10 years! This is significant because of the Israeli-Palestinian peace plan that President Trump had constructed that he has said he wishes to reveal to both parties by the end of this month.
Also during Trump's term he has recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital, moved the United States' embassy to Jerusalem, imposed tighter metals tariffs on Turkey (whose leader has declared that they're a Muslim state), pulled out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and backed out of the Iranian nuclear deal. Every one of these decisions are opposed to Islamic desires.
Of utmost importance is the constructed peace plan that Trump has chosen not to propose yet, which has implications that will benefit both Israeli's and Palestinians, while at the same time angering both Israeli's and Palestinians. Once this peace plan is enacted, the Bible declares that a false peace and safety will be established that will ultimately lead to utter destruction (1st Thessalonians 5:3). Could we be seeing the precursor to that very event?
With the Iranian pressure mounting, the Middle-East pressure reaching a pinnacle, and the reality being that Israel and Iran are but a short mishap away from full scale war (potentially nuclear in the worst-case scenario), Israel needed support. At this point the only significant power in the world that has shown any level of support for Israel is the United States. Russia has shown favor towards Israel at times, but has often played both sides of the card, choosing the Islamic nations more often than not. China is at odds with the United States because of tariff disputes, among other issues that revolve around internet-related accusations.
The world is ready to snap at the thought of Israel causing World War 3. From the world's perspective, it would make much more sense to remove Israel to appease the majority of the 1.8 billion Muslims that are currently practicing the religion in presumably every country in the world.
America is very much so "flying into the wilderness" to protect Israel. As future developments occur, look for the peace plan that Donald Trump has had constructed to be proposed, and ultimately signed (if you're a Bible-believing Christian then you know the Bible speaks of a peace deal that the Antichrist confirms with many). Dr. Baxter's claim appears to not be as much of a theory as many would like to presume. Look for Middle-East escalation, World War 3, and the attempted destruction of Israel in the not-so-distant future.
