Trump and the Haman Syndrome
(A prophetic allegory by Bart Peacher – June 2017)
If one listens to America’s mainstream media and left-leaning political leadership these days, it would appear that President Donald Trump is heading for a political hanging. The pollsters noted that they ‘got it wrong’ in the pre-election when the polls showed that there was no way that he could win. Just suppose that they actually got it right but that God intervened and spoiled their accurate assessment?
Hasn’t God Himself miraculously placed Trump in the Presidential office (Dan 2:21)? Besides, the Scriptures indicate that this is not the first time that the Eternal One interfered with the affairs of men. Examples include when He ‘played’ with Pharaoh’s heart prior to the exodus and He put thoughts in Cyrus to let the Jews free from Babylonian captivity.
In Dan 4:28-33 Nebuchadnezzar was strolling about, immersed in arrogance, musing how he had built great Babylon when God intervened and made his future very bleak, that he would live like the beasts until he would come to know the fact that the ‘Most High rules in the kingdom of men’.
The USA has been spiraling down as her military, government, industry, educational institutions, and family homes have removed God from their businesses, opening wide the way for politicians to become more corrupt, where immorality, lies, lawlessness, and insanity has taken the lead. But this is not this nation’s true calling. It has reached a point where the Highest must intervene to execute His plan.
Thus, in spite of the way things appear, the Lord did not place Trump in office to fail but to be His tool to make America great again.
He is again going to show the world, thru the Trump Presidency, that the ‘Most High rules in the kingdom of men.
This prophetic allegory is revealed thru the book of Esther.

Trump and the Haman Syndrome – a Prophetic Allegory:
King Ahasuerus has been deceived by Haman who is the true enemy of God and country. The king has been waiting, consciously and unconsciously, for Queen Vashti to show up but she will not. Therefore, the king desired to replace her with a better queen. Through a long drawn out process, Vashti was replaced by Queen Esther.
Presently the King is being awakened mainly by Hegai the King’s eunuch. He has always served the King wanting only the best. He also mentored Esther by her request.
Mordecai was really a Jew and cousin to Esther. But this relationship was kept secret until the right time came when the King promoted them to top positions. Esther had no living parents to raise her so Mordecai parented her.
Mordecai, who often sat at the King’s gate, had previously saved the King’s life by exposing a plot to have him removed but no big deal was made of it at the time, only recorded for file. He was pretty well known for sitting at the King’s gate but extremely hated by Haman for doing it.
In time, the King will honor and promote Mordecai for exposing the earlier plot to remove the King. Haman will reach extreme hatred for Mordecai and the Jews and trick the King into sending out a decree to have the Jews annihilated and for gallows to be built to hang Mordecai on.
But Esther will expose Haman and his plot and the King will have Haman instead of Mordecai hung by those same gallows. All of the Jews will be saved from death and will be allowed to kill those who came to kill them. Haman has ten sons who will be killed in Shushan then Esther will have their bodies hung there, as a sign, for all to see the end of the house of Haman. The King will continue to rule, Esther will remain queen, and Mordecai will be given authority over the house of Haman.
Esther and Mordecai together will celebrate a new era (holiday), not imposed by God but by them. Jews will finally have rest from their enemies in all of the King’s provinces.
The King will impose a tribute to the greatness, power, and acts of Mordecai the Jew. Both Mordecai and the new era will NEVER BE FORGOTTEN and both will be recorded in the book of the chronicles (history).
God is raising Donald Trump (this has little to do with the man himself but God has chosen him for His own purposes) to eliminate corruption in Washington DC and for the USA to enter its end time purpose with a Holy Spirit assisted Constitution. Eventually, God consciousness will again be the underlying factor in the nation’s government, institutions, and homes. Trump’s enemies are really the enemy of the nation and God’s plan for this nation. They have little care for a true God-inspired Constitutional government or for anyone else but themselves. With increasing envy and jealousy, they grow only in hate and, like biblical Haman, are focused on one thing. Through evil plots, lies, and deception, their only goal is for Trump’s death by the gallows. These gallows are designed to choke him to death with lies and obsessive demands for investigations. The ‘real’ investigations will not lead to Trump’s downfall but will boomerang on those who planned his demise. After this, Trump, like Mordecai, will emerge greater in stature. God will now have the nation in the position that He intended for His end-time purposes.
A friend and board member, Jim McLaughlin, told me that we should take words of prophecy and declare them into reality. My hope is that all who read this and believe will declare it to His Glory.
Once all of the physical things are set in order i.e. nations, boundaries etc. the Lord will deliver the Kingdom to the Father to fulfill His ultimate plan. 1Cor 15:24-28
May God bless the USA in finding her rightful place.
Thank you and may God bless you, Bart
Book of Esther Outline:
We can read in chapter 1, that a time came when King Ahasuerus threw a great national shindig to honor and show off his glorious kingdom. He even had a queen called Vashti that he claimed was so beautiful that he requested her to show up at the event so that he could show her off.
But she refused and this made the king furious. Therefore, with solicited advice, he decided to give Queen Vashti’s position to another who was better than her.
After a lengthy review process, the king made Esther the new queen. She was content to be mentored by the king’s eunuch Hegai.
Then the king made a great feast, the Feast of Esther, for all his officials and servants; and he proclaimed a holiday in the provinces and gave gifts according to the generosity of a king.
Esther had an older cousin named Mordecai whose Jewish family had been part of Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylonian captivity. Esther had no living parents thus Mordecai had raised her. For the short term, Mordecai and Esther agreed not to reveal that their people were really the Jews.
Mordecai had a habit of sitting at the king’s gate and one day, while sitting there, he overheard a plot by two of the king’s eunuch doorkeepers to lay hands on the king but Mordecai told Queen Esther who informed the king who consequently had the two hanged. The event was recorded in the king’s book of chronicles.
Now the king, in deception, had a notion that a prince named Haman was promotable and thus promoted him above all the other princes and ordered everyone to bow and pay homage to Haman but Mordecai would not bow or pay homage.
When Haman realized that Mordecai would not honor him, he was filled with wrath and plotted to have Mordecai and all of the Jews destroyed.
Haman then deceitfully told the king that the Jews’ laws and the king’s laws were incompatible and recommended that the Jews be destroyed.
Haman even offered to pay ten thousand talents of silver to the king’s treasury to pay all of those who would do the work of destruction. A decree to that effect was sent out from the capital to all the provinces. Then the king and Haman sat down for a drink but the capital was perplexed.
When Mordecai learned about the deception and plot that Haman had convinced the king to do, he was enraged, tore his clothes, put on sackcloth and ashes and went to the entrance of the king’s gate (as far as anyone was permitted if attires with sackcloth and ashes). The Jews in all of the provinces were in mourning with fasting and weeping.
When Esther found out about the plot she sent clothes for Mordecai but he would not give up the sackcloth and ashes. But Mordecai sent Esther all of the details and requested that she go to the king to make supplication and plead for her people.
Esther knew that the law required one to be put to death who entered the king’s inner court without being called unless the king holds out the golden scepter granting life to the violator.
Esther naturally had great concern for her life if she agreed to do this but Mordecai told her “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews. 14 For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”
So, Esther decided to do it if Mordecai would gather the Jews in the capital and fast for her for three days. They did then she replied to Mordecai “And so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!”
She did it and found favor with the king. He wanted to bless her by granting her request to have the king and Haman come to a banquet that she prepared. She was setting up Haman for his demise. Haman, feeling special, was joyful but he saw Mordecai in the king’s gate and became enraged. He went home and bragged to his family and friends about how important he was but that he couldn’t be perfectly happy until something was done about Mordecai sitting in the king’s gate. By suggestion from Haman’s wife and friends, he had the gallows made and, at the banquet, urged the king, for Mordecai to be hanged.
The night before the banquet the king had a restless night. He had the records of chronicles read to him which mention that Mordecai had saved the king prior to the hands of palace doorkeepers. He found out that Mordecai had not been honored for this good deed and decided it was time to honor Mordecai.
But Haman, arriving at the king’s palace to suggest that Mordecai is hanged and blinded by his arrogance, thought that the king was referring to him to be honored. So he suggested to the king how to give a royal honoring to the man the king wished to glorify. He suggested that the king should dress the man to be honored in royal attire and parade him on horseback thru the city for all to adore in the city. Thus when the king honored Mordecai in the prescribed manner that Haman had suggested for himself, Haman went home in mourning.
Haman goes to Esther’s banquet and the king, wanting to bless her, tells her that he will grant her practically any request. She told the king that there was a plot to have her and her people annihilated and that she wanted life granted. The king, not knowing what had been going on, said “Who is he, and where is he, who would dare presume in his heart to do such a thing?”
Esther revealed that the culprit was Haman! When Haman heard this he was terrified and begged Esther for his life while laying on the couch where she was sitting. The king saw that and considered it an assault on Esther.
The king thus ordered that Haman is hanged on the gallows meant for Mordecai!
So Haman was hanged and the king’s wrath was subsided. Queen Esther was appointed over the house of Haman and she told the king that she and Mordecai were related. The king gave Mordecai his signet ring which he had given to Haman then Esther gave the house of Haman to Mordecai. Upon the king’s urging and blessing, Mordecai and Esther wrote a decree that was issued in the capital and sent to all the provinces that gave Jews everywhere the freedom to kill and annihilate anyone who came against them.
The Jewish community rejoiced with a feast and holiday and many people of the land became Jews because of the fear of them.
For those who sought to destroy the Jews, the opposite happened, the destroyers were destroyed (but they did not plunder), the Jews did what they pleased with their enemies, and Mordecai became increasingly prominent.
After the Jews had killed many enemies in the capital, the king petitioned Esther again for additional wishes. Haman’s ten sons had been killed in the capital slayings but she wanted the ten bodies to be hanged on the gallows also!
Thus, a new Jewish holiday Purim was imposed upon the Jews and their descendants, not by God directly like the Biblical Feasts but by Mordecai and Esther, to observe and celebrate on the 14th and 15th days of the month Adar, the final month of the Biblical year, corresponding to February-March. Jews now had rest from their enemies. Purim was written in the book of chronicles never to be forgotten.
The king imposed a tribute to the greatness of Mordecai the Jew, to which the king had advanced him,; the power and the acts of Mordecai were also never to be forgotten and were recorded in the book of the chronicles.
