Dangerous Biblical Fantasies: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo suggests that God may have sent President Donald Trump to Earth to save Israel and protect the Jews.
In a recent interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN News) Secretary of State Pompeo said it is “possible” that President Donald Trump was sent by God to save the Jewish people from Iran.
During the interview with CBN Pompeo was asked:
Could it be that that President Trump right now has been sort of raised for such a time as this just like Queen Esther to help save the Jewish people from an Iranian menace?
Pompeo agreed that it was possible that God sent Trump to save the Jews and protect Israel, declaring:
As a Christian I certainly believe that’s possible.
It was remarkable — so we were down in the tunnels where we could see 3,000 years ago, and 2,000 years ago — if I have the history just right — to see the remarkable history of the faith in this place and the work that our administration’s done to make sure that this democracy in the Middle East, that this Jewish state remains.
I am confident that the Lord is at work here.
Pompeo has a well deserved reputation as a dangerous Christian extremist. For example, an alarming video recorded in 2015 shows Pompeo discussing the Rapture. In the video Pompeo expresses his opposition to same-sex marriage while addressing a church congregation. And at one point in the video Pompeo declares:
We will continue to fight these battles, it is a never ending struggle… until the Rapture.

Speaking at a church group in Wichita, Kansas, in 2014, Pompeo claimed that Christianity was the “only solution” to combat terrorism, arguing that the greatest “threat to America” is caused by “people who deeply believe that Islam is the way.”
Pompeo told the church-goers:
This threat to America is from people who deeply believe that Islam is the way and the light and the only answer.
These folks believe that it is religiously driven for them to wipe Christians from the face of the earth.
They (Muslims) abhor Christians, and will continue to press against us until we make sure that we pray and stand and fight and make sure that we know that Jesus Christ our savior is truly the only solution for our world.
That’s right, the Secretary of State, America’s top diplomat, believes that “Jesus Christ our savior is truly the only solution for our world.”
Bottom line: Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is a dangerous Christian extremist who believes that Trump is a possible Queen Esther, poised to defend Israel and save the Jews from Iran.
