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.
Theres more over at newsweek.com.
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?
For more from Paula White, here’s a few words about how Donald Trump is under spiritual attack.
May I present, some quotes from Donald Trump about Christmas:
“They don’t use the word ‘Christmas’ because it’s not politically correct, We’re saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again.”
“Our religious liberty is enshrined in the very first amendment in the Bill of Rights. The American founders invoked our creator four times in the Declaration of Independence. Benjamin Franklin reminded his colleagues at the Constitutional Convention to begin by bowing their heads in prayer. I remind you that we’re going to start saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again.”
“So when I started 18 months ago, I told my first crowd in Wisconsin that we are going to come back here someday and we are going to say ‘Merry Christmas’ again,” he said. “Merry Christmas. So, merry Christmas, everyone. Happy New Year, but merry Christmas.”
and finishing on…
“You go to stores, you don’t see the word Christmas,” Trump said last year. “It says ‘happy holidays’ all over. I say, ‘Where’s Christmas?’ I tell my wife, ‘Don’t go to those stores.’ .?.?. I want to see Christmas.”
With the above comments in mind, here’s some Christmas news from Nazareth. Where Jesus grew up. According to Mashable:
The mayor of Nazareth is canceling Christmas, and he’s blaming Donald Trump.
Ali Salam, who is Muslim in the Muslim-majority city, shut down all Christmas festivities in the city in protest of Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.
“Our identity and faith aren’t up for debate,” Salam said, according to the Times of Israel. “The decision (by Trump) has taken away the joy of the holiday, and we will thus cancel the festivities this year.”
The city council was the bearer of the bad news Thursday after the mayor made the economically risky decision. Religious tourists flock to the city where Jesus grew up, especially for the Christmas holiday.

While I wouldn’t suggest there is a definite direct line of cause and effect between Donald Trumps foreign policy, and the above news from Nazareth (with no other factors involved); I do find it interesting that the man who has seemed to concentrate so much on Christmas, has been quoted as a reason for Christmas being cancelled.
I guess Trump isn’t that great making sure that Christmas is all around.
