Secular Messianism is Alive and Well in the Age of King Donald I

Remember when Christianists were warning that Obama’s base thought he was the Anointed of God? What a bunch of maroons them Lefties were! What a bunch of ignoranimouses!

Fast forward to now:

Liberty University students and faculty are helping produce an 85-minute feature film that will be shown in over 1,000 theatres nationwide highlighting one man’s “Trump prophecy” and a movement of prayer that led up to the election of President Donald Trump.

The film, titled “The Trump Prophecy,” will be shown at select cinemas nationwide on Oct. 2 and Oct. 4 and is a production led and funded by producer Rick Eldridge and his Charlotte-based ReelWorks Studios, which also helped produce the 2015 documentary based on the book Four Blood Moons by megachurch Pastor John Hagee.

About 56 Liberty University students and several staff members from the Virginia Christian school’s cinematic arts department will also work on the project as part of the department’s spring semester film project.

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.

Taylor’s prophetic claim was described in his 2017 book, The Trump Prophecies: The Astonishing True Story of the Man Who Saw Tomorrow… and What He Says Is Coming Next.

Yeah.  But that’s just some nutty Evangelicals.  Thank God that Catholics don’t fall for this nonsense!

Yeah.  About that, here’s manly priest of manliness, the aptly named Fr. Richard Heilman, pausing briefly from hawking his Roman Catholic Man “Spiritual Ammo Kits” to declare to us the revelation that Trump is God’s Anointed and Constantine Redivivus in his prophetic utterance: “Yes, I believe Trump was an Answer to Prayers

Monica Crowley, at the David Horowitz Freedom Center’s 2017 Restoration Weekend (Nov. 16th-19th), gives a stirring speech that identifies all of the forces President Donald Trump has faced and is facing. It’s mind-boggling when one sees it all laid out like this. As Monica lays out so clearly, the seemingly invincible ruling class has met up with a formidable opponent in Donald Trump, and they are scared to death. Could it be that we may be freed from the stranglehold of “Secular Satanism” by way of President Donald Trump?

I am not working for the cause for President Trump’s canonization, but I do believe, through the prayers of hundreds of thousands of people of faith, we may have been delivered a Constantine.

The theme of Trump as the New Constantine is a common one with Catholic Trump supporters.  Liesite promoted it.  So did Mercatornet.  So did Zmirak at The Stream.  So has Michael Voris. And the True Believers got the message:

It’s a way to say “Trump is our secular messiah” without the messiness of the charge of blasphemy that clumsy Protestants incur when they call him the “fulfilment of prophecy”.  But it comes down to the same thing in the end, as the driver of that car understands.  Trump is the Suffering Servant, despised and rejected of men.  Like sheep before his shearers, he opened not his mouth, and by his stripes, we are healed.  He is, we are to believe, God holy anointed king, chosen to, in his own words, see to it that “Christianity will have power again.”  And that’s what these people are all about: power.  Not, of course, the power of the Spirit.  Just raw, earthly power to punish enemies and enrich themselves and achieve domination.

That’s why they spend their time worrying about a Pope who humbles himself and calls us to do likewise while saying not a word about a King who claims he can kill people in cold-blood and pardon himself for doing so.  These people are enemies of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  They want tyrannical power, not the humility of Jesus.  And as the photo above makes clear, they dress that drive for tyrannical power in biblical jargon and imagery.

Here’s reality:  throughout history we are offered a choice: join the antichrists big and small who crucify Jesus in the least of these or join Jesus with the least of these.

675 Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh.

676 The Antichrist’s deception already begins to take shape in the world every time the claim is made to realize within history that messianic hope which can only be realized beyond history through the eschatological judgment. The Church has rejected even modified forms of this falsification of the kingdom to come under the name of millenarianism, especially the “intrinsically perverse” political form of a secular messianism.

677 The Church will enter the glory of the kingdom only through this final Passover, when she will follow her Lord in his death and Resurrection. The kingdom will be fulfilled, then, not by a historic triumph of the Church through a progressive ascendancy, but only by God’s victory over the final unleashing of evil, which will cause his Bride to come down from heaven. God’s triumph over the revolt of evil will take the form of the Last Judgment after the final cosmic upheaval of this passing world.

Christianists have made their choice clear: they crave the power of antichrist.  What is your choice?

"Except that is nothing like what the doctrine of hell actually means."
