Trump's Evangelicals Shape Middle East Policy

Updated on February 29, 2020

As past press have reported about the Trump administration, there is a real belief among the evangelicals that Trump is a president in the End Times. Most of these Christians really believe that sometime between now and 2028, or so, many of the verses in the Revelations will come to pass. They cite that the Bible states this will come to be a generation after Israel had become a country, which is 1948. The generation, time wise, is between 70-80 years.

The Anointed One

President has surrounded him with many End Time believers that lead very large congregations of devout followers. If you go to YouTube and enter "bible prophecy 2020", you will find a myriad of videos all telling you how we are in the End Times or near that. They believe (not sure about Trump) that Trump is God's chosen one to help America repent for drifting away and will fulfill the predictions in Ezekiel with a coming war with Iran, Russia and other Middle East players. Trump himself joked that he was THE chosen one who will protect and defend Israel, the center of the End Times.

The evangelicals the Trump has in the White House or who consults with because of their beliefs, make suggestions hoping that Trump will act upon them when Trump creates foreign policy, according to news outlets. They are eager to have Christ return according to the Revelations.

In October, a large group of evangelicals arrived in the WH to conduct prayers to protect Trump from impeachment. It worked. The large group was in the Oval office and laid hands on their Chosen one as they prayed. In 2017, the WH issued a statement attributing Trump to the biblical character, Cyrus the Great. Cyrus was a pagan leader of Iran who God appointed to free the Jews in Babylon. Evangelicals loved this and looked at a Trump as Cyrus' modern version.

In March 2018, even the Secretary of State, who issued the kill order for the Iranian leader, Soleimani, made a statement referring to how a Persian king was to slaughter the Jews after his adviser suggested this. However, his Jewish wife, Esther, was against this and used her abilities to stop it. When asked if he thought Trump is a modern day Esther, he said, " As a Christian, I certainly believe that's possible". So, even at the highest levels of Trump's circle, there is this crazy belief.

Whether Trump realizes it or not, the influence of these End Times believers surrounding him does shape Middle East policy. The evangelicals suggested that the U.S. Embassy should be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and that peace between Israel and the Palestinians should occur. After Trump did move the embassy, the evangelicals went crazy happy because that was one of the conditions or signs of End Times approaching. No other president did this. As far as his peace plan, it is bold but it will fail, but this too, is suppose to happen in End Times until there is a false peace. Trump's discord with the international body called NATO also is seen by evangelicals as a sign because NATO and its countries will separate from America in End Times, with NATO becoming a very powerful force led by the Antichrist. They, like Trump, have disdain for the United Nations and one world government. So, when Trump threatens to pull out of NATO, has this been suggested to him? His own idea?

Other Republican presidents have had their evangelicals, like Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush, who knows all about how Gog and Magog will invade to destroy Israel in Armageddon. Trump, seems to be a false prophet that Revelations states will come in Jesus' name.

No POTUS has even claimed he was the chosen one sent by God. Evangelicals have done a very good job. But, Trump is so narcissistic, is it a surprise?
