At one of his creepiest appearances to date, Donald Trump allowed himself to be pawed this week by a clot of dimwitted evangelicals in Cleveland, Ohio, as a protective measure against demonic attacks.
Speaking at the Midwest Vision and Values Pastors Leadership Conference held at his church in Cleveland, Rev Darrell Scott, CEO of the National Diversity Coalition for Trump, revealed that a “nationally known” preacher had warned Trump prior to the launch of his presidential campaign that:
If you choose to run for president, there’s going to be a concentrated Satanic attack against you.
There’s going to be a demon, principalities and powers, that are going to war against you on a level that you’ve never seen before and I’m watching it every day.
Then Scott, his wife, Belinda, and others including Trump’s vice presidential running mate Mike Pence and campaign surrogates Ben Carson, Michael Cohen and Omarosa Manigault joined in the laying on of hands to ward off the alleged attack.
Said Belinda Scott:
We need someone that will honour our beliefs and our faith and our feelings and I really know for a fact that Mr Donald J Trump would do that. He’s a family man, he’s a business man, he’s got tremendous stamina, I don’t know anybody that could get up on a plane and do all this stuff … I appreciate this man.
Father we thank you in the name of Jesus for raising up a man for such a time as this. God we ask you right now that your choice is this choice. We believe Lord God that you ordain things. You said all authority is of you. Now God I ask that you would touch this man, Donald J Trump, give him the anointing to lead this nation.
We thank you God that as a room full of clergy, a room full of leaders, a room full of business owners, mothers, fathers, wives, we ask for help and we ask you God to let that help be in the form of the next president Mr Donald J Trump. We ask you God to bless him, keep him safe, give him the wisdom and the strength to lead this nation, in Jesus name.
Televangelist Frank Amedia, who leads Touch Heaven Ministries in Ohio and is described in Time as Trump’s new “liaison for Christian policy,” then led the audience into what he called the “Jericho shout”.
We wanna tear the walls down of division in the country and the walls that have built themselves up to oppose a man that God has called to bring us to a new place. We are on a journey together and it is a movement even as Mr Trump says but this movement is also a kingdom movement that we know God has released.
In a Monday conference call hosted by “respected prophet” Cindy Jacobs, well-known evangelical Christian, political activist and founder of Wall Builders David Barton urged Christians who were on the fence about voting for Trump to stop making excuses.
He said he is confident Trump is God’s choice for President because of the record number of Christians who voted for him in the Republican primaries.
