President McKinley’s Dream   4 comments

President William McKinley, 1843-1901

Dreams from the LORD 2007-2010
16 November 2008

“As President he relied for such knowledge upon John Sherman, and God (who appeared to McKinley in a dream and told him to keep the Philippines).”

“McKinley had other concerns behind his decision to go to war. He was constantly being criticized by Theodore Roosevelt and other warmongers for a ‘lack of backbone’. (Of course, in the hysterical frenzy of 1898, not supporting war was actually a very brave stand.) McKinley also was afraid that not going to war would give the Democrats and his arch-nemesis, William Jennings Bryan, a campaign issue to use against the Republicans in 1900. McKinley knew that if he refused to send in the troops after Congress declared war, the Democrats would use this fact to destroy him in the 1900 election. Finally, a highly devout Christian, McKinley claimed to have been commanded in a dream to send the country to war. Conveniently, the religious experience coincided perfectly with the various pressures forced on McKinley at the time. And even at the same time as he committed the US to war because of a belief in democracy and a religious experience, he still couldn’t help but hope that, ‘perhaps it will pay.'”

U.S. Goes to War:  1898

[“Finally, a highly devout Christian, McKinley claimed to have been commanded in a dream to send the country to war.”  This reminds me of what T.S. Eliot wrote about John Milton:   “The civil war of the seventeenth century, in which Milton is a symbolic figure, has never been concluded. . .”  Essentially, the English Civil War in the 1600s is still being fought today throughout the world through Anglo-American (Christian) influence.

The Lord destroyed the Spanish Armada in 1588, so that England would be free of Spanish Catholic Slavery and so that the English would be free to propagate the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout Great Britain and the rest of world through their future empire.  The Lord told President McKinley to go to war against Spain in 1898 to free Cuba, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, Guam and Havana from Spanish influence.  (I guess McKinley could have also invoked the Monroe Doctrine)]

“An incident well worth space here is that just before the shooting, at the reception, the President stooped to pet a little girl and to speak a kind word to the child’s mother. The next person in the line was the assassin, Czolgolz. Two shots were fired, and when the President perceived the fury of the crowd toward his assailant, he cried:  ‘Let no one hurt him.'”
To those who bent over his death-bed, including his invalid wife, the dying President’s last words were:
“‘Good-bye all. It is God’s way. His will be done, not ours.'”

Passing of the Three Martyred Presidents
[William McKinley was President of the United States from 1897 to 1901; he was succeeded by Theodore Roosevelt after his assassination. McKinley fought the Spanish-American War and later annexed the Philippines, Puerto Rico, Guam and Hawaii; he set up a protectorate over Cuba.]

  4. I have had four dreams about Donald Trump:

    Dreams from the LORD 2011-2016
    25 May 2016

    Last night I had a dream where I was driving this tractor-trailer.
    Sitting in the cab of the truck with me was Donald Trump. We were
    hauling heavy equipment. We couldn’t find a place to park the
    tractor-trailer, so I drove to this lot next to this job site and parked
    it there. I told Donald Trump that I had parked trucks there before.
    The owner of the lot walked up to our truck and I asked him if I could
    park our tractor-trailer there for a short while. He said it would be
    all right to park it there for a few days.

    Last night I had a dream where I saw Donald Trump dressed in a
    business suit sitting comfortably on top of this bed. He was surrounded
    by many people—they looked like reporters. Trump was casually talking to
    the reporters.

    I believe this dream means that Trump will easily win the election in November.

    Dreams from the LORD 2011-2017
    27 February 2017

    Last night I had two dreams with Donald Trump.

    In the first dream, I was traveling with President Trump. He was
    meeting with people, talking to people: the general needs to visit his

    The next scene: we were sitting in this restaurant having some
    breakfast, when someone placed a book on the countertop. It was my
    second book: The First Time I Rode a Freight Train & other
    hitchhiking stories.

    I said, “What is this book doing here?”

    Right away, President Trump took my book, opened it up and began
    writing some comments in the margins. He told me that he had read the
    book and liked it a lot. We spoke for a long time, but I forget most of
    the details.

    I then woke up and was surprised that it was all a dream. It seemed so real: I was talking with President Trump.

    I went back to sleep. Then I had another dream with Donald Trump.
    We spoke with each other for quite some time. It was similar to the
    previous dream.

    Genesis 41:32: “And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh
    twice; it is because the thing is established by God, and God will
    shortly bring it to pass.”

    When a dream is repeated twice during the same night, it definitely
    means something. In the mouth of two or three witnesses, let every word
    be established.
