Poll: Will You Celebrate The Day Donald Trump Is Sworn Into Office?

Donald Trump may have won the election, but he will have to wait to be sworn in as the 45th U.S. president. The inauguration is scheduled for noon on Jan. 20, 2017 at the U.S. Capitol.

As Trump becomes president, Barack Obama will leave the White House, his residence for the past eight years. He has said he intends to remain in Washington.


The event is planned by the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies, which has had that responsibility since 1901. This will be the 58th presidential inaugural.

The day traditionally has begun with a morning worship service. Then the outgoing president, in this case Obama, travels with the new president, Trump, to the Capitol. The incoming vice president, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, will be sworn in first, followed by the new chief executive.

Article II, Section I of the Constitution prescribes the wording of the oath: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of president of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Following the ceremony, Trump will deliver an inaugural address, which has been a part of every inauguration since George Washington in 1789 and has contained as many as 8,445 words or as few as 135. Obama and first lady Michelle Obama then leave the Capitol as private citizens.

There also is a luncheon featuring members of Congress and the new president and vice president.

The president used to be sworn into office on March 4, but the 20th Amendment to the Constitution pushed the date back to Jan. 20.

I’ll be mourning and praying that by Yahweh’s design (Daniel 4:17), Trump has become President because he provides a much greater opportunity to awaken those who have put their faith in him than Hillary ever could have.

It is utterly impossible for Trump to make America great again–that is, unless he repents of placing his hand on a Bible and swearing to uphold the biblicallly seditious Constitution as the law of the land. The Constitution is the reason America finds herself teetering precariously on the precipice of moral depravity and destruction and Trump will only help to send America further over the cliff. (Perhaps not as much as Hillary, perhaps more than Hillary; that’s yet to be seen.)

America was once great but not for the reason most people believe it was. In fact, quite the opposite–a classic case of Isaiah 5:20, calling evil good and good evil.

Yahweh, God of the Bible, blesses nations (makes them great and prosperous) when they look to Him as their sovereign and thus His moral law as the standard for government and society, per Deuteronomy 4:4-8, 28:1-14, etc. Consequently, America’s greatness was the result of the 17th-century Christian Colonial governments of, by, and for God established upon His unchanging moral law.

On the other hand, Yahweh curses nations who reject His sovereignty and replace His law with their own man-made surrogates. Thus, America began to be cursed (by God’s long suffering only incrementally at first) when the 18th-century founders replaced the 17th-century Colonial governments with their own humanistic government of, by, and for the people based upon capricious Enlightenment traditions. Without repentance for these sins of sedition our complicity therein, it was inevitable that America would find herself teetering on the precipice of moral depravity and destruction.

For more regarding these two polar opposite forms of government, see online Chapter 3 “The Preamble: WE THE PEOPLE vs. YAHWEH” of “Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective.” Click on my name, then our website.
