President Trump echoes Deborah of old; the two leaders are of the same spirit. Deborah, like Trump, has been chastised by some for not demonstrating humility. Judges 4, in prose relates Deborah’s victory against King Jabin of Canaan, the captain of whose army was Sisera; Deborah sings the triumphant song in vivid poetry in chapter 5.

Trump arises out of the business world to MAGA and Deborah arises from under the Palm Tree from where she judges disputes among the people to Make Israel Great. She uses the language of winning, winning and more winning and pursuing and avenging the enemies of Israel.

“Never Trumpers” accuse the President of not demonstrating a Christ-like spirit towards his political enemies. Trump does not perceive the fake media and Democrats as his personal enemies but the enemies of America and the enemies of the people.

Deborah rejoices in the bloody death of Sisera by the hand of the woman, Jael, driving a nail into his temple with a hammer. Deborah even mocks Sisera’s worried mother, who is concerned over his late return from battle. The prophetess concludes, “So let all thine enemies perish, O Lord!” Deborah’s obedience bought forty years of peace for Israel.

Trump is bolder and more courageous than Barak, who would not attack the enemy without Deborah agreeing to accompany him. Trump has his own prophetess, Paula White, revealing the will of God. He also has Kelly-Anne Conway and previously Sarah Huckabee Sanders to drive the nail into the temple of the media, The New York Times and the Washington Post, brought down Nixon but will not bring down Trump. Pence is Trump’s Barak.

“Awake, awake, Deborah: awake, awake, utter a song: arise, Barak, and lead thy captivity captive, thou son of Abinoam.”—Judges 5:12.

The spirit of Deborah must awake in America, especially in the churches, and in the pastors and the song-writers. None in our generation have composed anything comparable to “A Mighty Fortress is our God” by Martin Luther or that of another woman, Julia Ward Howe’s “Battle Hymn of the Republic.”

Awaken poets and minstrels and give us song of praise and triumphant, which will lead us into battle against our enemies. It is time for the governors and the people to willingly offer themselves unto the God of Israel. Israel is the Church! She must march into the raging battle for the soul of our country by confronting the enemies of God.
