3) Whether a prediction comes true or not is another test, as you mentioned.

Did I? I'm pretty sure I said that it isn't.

However, the Bible contains many prophecies which were not fulfilled until centuries later, in which case we would not be alive to confirm the fulfillment of the prediction.

There are no fulfilled prophecies in the hokey blurble.

For example, the Cyrus Prophecies of Isaiah 45 predicted a NONChristian king named Cyrus

Utter vacuous crap. There is no mention of Christians in the OT because... wait for it..., Christians hadn't even been conceived of when the Torah was written. Which bullshit apologetics website did you plagiarise this bullshit from?

("I will summon you by name...although you do not acknowledge Me") would rebuild the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem and set the Jewish exiles free from Babylon ("I will raise up Cyrus...he will rebuild My city and set My exiles free...") was not fulfilled until about 200 years later. The prophecy was given at a time when Cyrus had not been born, the Jews were not in exile, and the Temple did not need any rebuilding because it was still intact and had not been destroyed yet. This prophecy is very connected to Trump because the Trump Prophecies says Trump will be used in similar ways as Cyrus to "rebuild" the USA into a God-fearing nation like it once was.

Yeah, but no. What, you think Isaiah was written when Isaiah allegedly lived? Sorry, but no. The writing of Isaiah is widely regarded as having been written at different times by different people and, in particular, books 40-55 were written circa 536BCE, while Cyrus' conquest of Babylonia occurred in 539 BCE. Some fucking prophecy.

Easily checkable stuff, this, which should make it even more embarassing that I know more about your asinine fantasy than you do.

A supposed confirmation is that Trump is the 45th president, same as chapter 45 in Isaiah.

yeah, because numerology works. Could this be any more stupid?

4) This topic of coincidental or matching numbers (gematria) which many Christians view as God's way of making a statement comes into play, especially with Trump. Seven is a very prominent number in the Bible and is a sign of Godly completion. On the day of Trump's inauguration on January 20, 2017, Trump's age was exactly 70 years old, 7 months, and 7 days.

Fapfapfapfapfap. Utter bollocks.

5) The well-known "prophetic" book "The Last President" written in 1896 by Ingersoll Lockwood, eerily foretold a "Baron Trump" (Trump's youngest son is named Barron) would become a populist president, had a hotel in New York City and lived in a building named after himself (Trump Towers?), and a huge march by protesters and the destruction of the Capitol would occur during his presidency, causing the downfall of the Republic.
Here is a Newsweek article on the book: ... ic-1561901
Here is Wikipedia's take on the novel:

OK, I take it back. It can be more stupid. This is far and away the most idiotic notion I've ever encountered, and that's in a pretty strong field, including many of your previous attempts to give me a cachinnative hernia.

A story about a boy called Troomp who lived in his family's castle which, for some strange reason having to do with a children's author being a prophet, is named after the family that owns it...

Do you ever look at what you've written here and wonder how idiotic yo'd have to be to do anything but point and laugh?

6) Finally, a prophecy must come through a Bible-believer (not a soothsayer or fortune teller or prophet via another religion) who gives all the credit to the God of the Bible rather than to himself. Nostradamus failed in this regard. The event must also have a known purpose by God (judgment or blessing).

Well, you've certainly lived up to my expectations of not even attempting to answer the question. Did you read the linked post? Every word of it applies, especially the stuff about mediums. All utter crap.
