These are the words of his Christian supporters. I have, for a very long time, wondered how the predicted anti-Christ would be able to fool so many professing Christians. I no longer wonder.
I do not think that Donald Trump is anti-Christ. But I do think what you will read below shows you that there is a growing softness and desperation in the American church that is only going to grow. Just read the quotes below. What Christians are writing about Trump are in the blockquotes. Scripture is in normal text.
Scripture says that in the last days many Christians will fall away. “For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.” 2 Timothy 4:3-4.
That so many Christians can claim Biblical prophesy to justify support of Donald Trump and read into his rise various purportedly divine signs and wonders leaves me no doubt that the actual coming Anti-Christ will fool many and have self-proclaimed Christians first in line to punish and abuse the actual, real people of faith.
Did you know that if Trump wins, on his inauguration then his first day in office he will be 70 years 7 months and 7 days. 777 is a prophetic number and my belief is God is placing him there for a much bigger purpose. He might be a jerk but my thoughts are his cabinet could make all the difference in the world and the big thing are the Supreme Court appointments. I believe God is hearing our prayers and giving us a most unlikely leader, kind of like how Samuel “discovered” David.
“For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.” Matthew 24:24
From Paula White, Donald Trump’s “spiritual advisor”:
“I’ll never forget on his 60th birthday I thought, what am I going to get you for your birthday?” she said.
“I found out that he really wanted a Bible that had been signed and a letter by Billy Graham. So for his 60th birthday, Billy Graham wrote a prophetic word and a letter to Mr. Donald Trump. Can you hear me here?” she asked the crowd. “I am saying that he loves God. So when you look at the fruit of his life, you see his children, you see the people around him.”
“By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.” 1 John 4:2-3
From Breaking Israel News:
It is also remarkable to note that Donald Trump (424) is the Gematria of “Messiah for the House of David” (×ž×©×™×— ×‘×Ÿ ×“×•×“). That is not to say that Donald Trump is the Messiah, but that his presidency will usher in the Messianic era.
“And Jesus answered them, “See that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray.” Matthew 24:4-5
From “pastor” Denise Goulet:
I thank You that You have prepared him for such a time as this. Lord, You have Your hand on this man and I thank You for it. Lord, I thank You that he’s fearless … and that he is courageous, and I thank You for that boldness that [Trump] has.
You are bold—and this is this comes from the Lord, this comes from God. He has created you—yes, created you in your mother’s womb, and he has created you for such a time as this. And Lord I thank you. Lord, we desire to have that kind of boldness in the church, in the kingdom of God.
Yes, we are called to bring heaven on Earth, and we need the boldness of the Lord to do this, and I thank You that he’s been able to do that.
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” Matthew 7:15
From Lance Wallnau:
God Sent Donald Trump to Wage War Against Destructive Spirits
“In his place shall arise a contemptible person to whom royal majesty has not been given. He shall come in without warning and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.” Daniel 11:21
From Jeremiah Johnson:
The Holy Spirit spoke to me and said,
“Trump shall become My trumpet to the American people, for he possesses qualities that are even hard to find in My people these days. Trump does not fear man nor will he allow deception and lies to go unnoticed. I am going to use him to expose darkness and perversion in America like never before, but you must understand that he is like a bull in a china closet. Many will want to throw him away because he will disturb their sense of peace and tranquility, but you must listen through the bantering to discover the truth that I will speak through him. I will use the wealth that I have given him to expose and launch investigations searching for the truth. Just as I raised up Cyrus to fulfill My purposes and plans, so have I raised up Trump to fulfill my purposes and plans prior to the 2016 election. You must listen to the trumpet very closely for he will sound the alarm and many will be blessed because of his compassion and mercy. Though many see the outward pride and arrogance, I have given him the tender heart of a father that wants to lend a helping hand to the poor and the needy, to the foreigner and the stranger.”
“And the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who in its presence had done the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur.” Revelation 19:20
From an email to me:
I was NOT an original Trump supporter, however, I have come to learn after listening to so many prophesies that God DOES have his hand on DJT! You, of all people, who are studying the Bible, KNOW about CYRUS, DAVID, SAUL OF TARSUS, etc. were used for God’s purposes! God can even use a donkey. My prayer group and I have been praying against spirits the pharisees had!. They were a self-righteous group of Jews who were also hypocritical. Could you fit in that category? Please do some soul searching!
“And they worshiped the dragon, for he had given his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, ‘Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?’” Revelation 13:4
From Pastor Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church, Dallas, TX:
For Christians not to enthusiastically vote for Trump, to me, is morally inexcusable.
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’” Matthew 7:21-23
