New film highlights belief that Trump’s election was God’s plan
Mark Taylor is sure he knows why Donald Trump became president. Trump’s victory was God’s will, said Taylor. A number of high-profile evangelical and charismatic leaders – among them evangelist Franklin Graham, Baptist preacher Robert Jeffress, pollster George Barna and presidential adviser and televangelist Paula White – have claimed that God intervened in 2016 to ensure the election of Trump. The prophecy movement goes a step further to claim Trump is a modern-day King Cyrus, a pagan king who came to the aid of God’s people and rescued them from exile. A number of charismatic leaders, including Wallnau, Cindy Jacobs, Alveda King, Steve Shultz, Rick Joyner, Frank Amedia, and Lou Engle, work with POTUS Shield, which organizes prayer for the Trump administration.
In announcing the vigil, Amedia repeated a prophecy from 2016 that claims Trump will appoint three new justices to the high court. Taylor’s Trump prophecy was just the beginning. Trump will serve two terms and appoint a total of five Supreme Court justices. Eldridge said his Trump film, which features talking heads commenting on how Trump is making America – and Israel – great again, has a different purpose. Radio host, author and Bible scholar Michael Brown has said he believes God had a hand in Trump’s becoming president.
That doesn’t mean that opposing Trump is going against God’s will, Brown said. Brown, a charismatic leader who took part in the Brownsville revival of the 1990s, has a more nuanced view of the Trump presidency.
Martin Luther King Jr’s Niece Alveda King: Abortion is Racism and Takes Away the Civil Rights of Unborn Babies
Alveda King the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King jr is responding today to the white supremacy protests in Charlottesville, Virginia. King says the white supremacists definitely need to be condemned and that racism is a sin and a blight on society. The niece of the slain civil rights leader says she believes that abortion is also racism because it denies civil rights to unborn children. As we see from the most recent racially motivated massacre in Virginia, racism is still alive and raising hell.
The big lie is that we are separate races, when in fact the spiritual, scientific and biological fact is that we are one blood; one human race. We should be grateful that President Trump is calling for a ceasefire on the violence. King also said abortion is racism – a message she admits some people don’t want to hear. As one of God’s microphones, I’m often required to say what people don’t want to hear. Abortion is racism, in that abortion takes away the civil rights and lives of our weakest and most vulnerable members of the human race, unborn babies.
For both forms of racism, King called for nonviolent responses.
