Considering the amount of videos of American preachers bigging up Donald Trump that are out there.
This felt like something a little different.
Yeap. You read that correctly.
The Trump Prophecy is well… a movie based on a guy that reports having a prophecy that Donald Trump would be President.
According to The Christian Post:
The film focuses on the prophecy of a retired Florida firefighter named Mark Taylor, who claims that God told him in April 2011 that Trump would one day become president. Although Taylor initially thought that meant that Trump would become president in 2012, the prophecy was ultimately fulfilled in November 2016.
There is, indeed a book about all of this as well.
Here’s the trailer for the movie…
Considering the dude was a firefighter, I cant help but feel there should have been a little more… fire stuff?
I wonder what would have to happen to stop it from being shown in October?
Every now and then, The Sofa finds a book that people may find interesting to read*.
One such book, is one that looks at the faith of The American President, The Faith of Donald J. Trump: A Spiritual Biography.
According to Amazon…
The Chief Political Correspondent for the Christian Broadcasting Network and the “Jesus in the Public Square” columnist for the Washington Times explore the rarely discussed, but deeply important, religious beliefs and worldview of Donald J. Trump and his advisors.
Donald J. Trump was raised as a Presbyterian and has praised both Christianity and the primacy of the Bible. In the Oval Office, he has surrounded himself with close advisors who share his deep faith. In this deeply reported book, David Brody and Scott Lamb draw on unparalleled access to the White House to explain President Trump’s connection to the Christian faith, the evangelical right, the prosperity gospel, and the pressing moral and ethical issues of our day.
Hope someone out there enjoys reading… If someone could give me the cut down version of this, that would be great…
*There may be an element of sarcasm here.
Pastor Frank Amedia and his POTUS Shield group appeared on the Jim Bakker show, discussing conspiracy’s around Donald Trump, storms that are coming, and praying against witches and warlocks that are creating curses.
With all this talk about conspiracies, I almost fancy watching an X File.
How about you?
According to Frank Amedia, appearing on Jim Bakkers show in America. God has given him permission to say that “Donald Trump Will Be The Next President of The United States Again”.
Does this suggest that the fight for the next US election has already began? If so, is the tactic to say something along the lines of “God wants Trump to be president”, enough times that people accept it as truth?
Remember Franklin Graham? The guy in charge of Samaritans Purse, featured in Donald Trumps Inauguration, and this video.
Here’s an interview where he talks about a wall needing to keep out “dangerous people” from America, that there is a business man as a president, and if Donald Trump as a sin problem. (spoiler – Franklin Graham doesn’t say yes to that).
Interestingly, the video is called hypocrisy…
Honest question. How would an IRS audit make a company feel targeted, isn’t completing audits, something the IRS does?
According to newsweek.com, Paula White, who is part of Donald Trumps evangelical advisory committee, is asking for the first of peoples money:
Donald Trump’s spiritual adviser has suggested that people send her money in order to transform their lives, or face divine consequences.
Paula White, who heads up the president’s evangelical advisory committee, suggested making a donation to her ministries to honor the religious principle of “first fruit,” which she said is the idea that all firsts belong to God, including the first harvest and, apparently, the first month of your salary.
“Right now I want you to click on that button, and I want you to honor God with his first fruits offering,” she said in a video shared to her website, in which she encourages her followers to donate to her ministries to get blessings from God.

So I wondered what it was she actually said… It seems newsweek were watching the video that was on Paula Whites website:
Short version. Give money to my organisation. Good things will happen. Give more money, you’ll get more freebies from me.
It may be worth pointing out that a similar video was posted at the start of 2016, showing that the above is not a new way of thinking.
While I feel there are a few holes in what she says, can I suggest that if you do feel you should give something, how about giving
me your local charity / local church something?
