Donald Trump Is God’s Anointed

Donald Trump is God’s anointed candidate. How do I know this? Because good and devout Christians keep telling me this. One sent me a letter this week declaring Trump a miracle from God to restore the church in America. Many others told me that my wife would not have lung cancer if I was not fighting God’s will and, most assuredly the cancer will go away if I support Trump. Another emailed me just yesterday, writing, “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.”

Donald Trump is God’s anointed. These Christians are convinced of it. As the Prophet Isaiah reported two hundred years before the rise of Cyrus, “Thus says the Lord to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have grasped, to subdue nations before him and to loose the belts of kings, to open doors before him that gates may not be closed: “I will go before you and level the exalted places, will break in pieces the doors of bronze and cut through the bars of iron, I will give you the treasures of darkness and the hoards in secret places, that you may know that it is I, the Lord, the God of Israel, who call you by your name.… I am the Lord, and there is no other, besides me there is no God; I equip you, though you do not know me, that people may know, from the rising of the sun and from the west, that there is none besides me; I am the Lord, and there is no other. I form light and create darkness; I make well-being and create calamity; I am the Lord, who does all these things.” (Isaiah 45:1-7)

Trump is the second coming of Cyrus. Some pastor on YouTube has a prophesy that says so.

You know who else has prophesy? Some dude named Paul who wrote, “For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to sound and wholesome teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever their itching ears want to hear.”

72% of evangelical Christians right now, today, believe an immoral man can be a good and ethical leader. Five years ago it was 30%. Today, more Christians than atheists believe an immoral man can be a good and ethical leader. In trying to go with the lesser of two evils, Christians have brought evil into their doctrine and now suppose they can determine God’s will.

Every single sermon out there declaring that Donald Trump is the second coming of Cyrus works the same way if you swap out Trump’s name for Clinton’s. What a shallow faith these Christians have who think they know God’s will and those who refuse to back Trump are powerful enough to thwart the Almighty.

Christians, fear the Lord, not the future. If you feared the Lord instead of the future you would not be making such foolish declarations about Donald Trump. Yes, God can use a donkey, whether that jackass be Trump or Clinton. But that God can use a donkey does not mean he is.

If Hillary Clinton wins on Tuesday, and it is very likely that she will, you who think Trump is God’s anointed will, I hope, repent and acknowledge God’s will was still done.
