End-timers gleefully anticipate a bloody war led by Trump and Jesus

End-timers gleefully anticipate a bloody war led by Trump and Jesus January 21, 2020

DONALD Trump, according to his certifiably insane ‘spiritual advisor‘ Paula White, above, will shortly be in the vanguard of a battle that will lead to ‘The Rapture.’

She knows this because Him Upstairs recently told her so.

God came to me last night and showed me a vision of Trump riding alongside Jesus on a horse made of gold and jewels. This means he will play a critical role in Armageddon as the United States stands alongside Israel in the battle against Islam.

Has Trump any military experience? Nope. He was a draft dodger.

Has he ever ever been on a horse? A trawl through Google Images only yielded this doctored photo:

What is genuine is an organisation called Cowboys for Trump. It membership, one can safely assume, is made up of people who are far less intelligent than their horses.

Anyway, around the same time God spoke to White, US televangelist Jack Van Impe declared a in televised sermon on January 10:

It’s going to be the bloodiest war in the world. The blood will flow to the bridles of the horses for 200 miles.

Eight days later, Van Impe, 89, upped and joined the Choir Invisible, prompting a statement on his ministry’s that said:

The beloved Dr. Jack Van Impe was welcomed into Heaven by His blessed Savior and Lord who he had so faithfully served in ministry for over 70 years.

Please pray for his beloved wife and lifelong ministry partner Rexella and their families as they grieve this immense loss and for wisdom as she and the Board lead the ministry in the days ahead.

Further details about Dr. Van Impe’s homecoming celebration will be published later.

There’s a great deal about this lunatic on Christianity Today, but the only interesting thing that jumped out at me was that his paranoia proved too much for the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) which had regularly broadcast his cockamamie rants until 2011:

He started attacking other Christian ministers for not taking a strong enough stand against Islam … Van Impe said megachurch pastors Rick Warren and Robert Schuller, both of whom had spoken to Muslim groups, were secretly promoting a merger of Christianity and Islam, or Chrislam.

TBN refused to air the episode and Van Impe separated from the network. The Van Impes continued the show on their own, broadcasting Jack Van Impe Presents on TV and the internet. On January 10, the most recent episode available on the ministry website, Rexella Van Impe read headlines about the heightening conflict between the US and Iran.

    “Secretly” promoting a merger of Christianity and Islam? Seriously? The merger’s already started in places like Chechnya, where bigots of both faiths work together in the open to herd gays (and everyone who dares speak up for them) into concentration-camps.

    The beloved Dr. Jack Van Impe was welcomed into Heaven by His blessed Savior and Lord who he had so faithfully served in ministry for over 70 years.

    Any proof of this alleged happening?

    These people are dangerous. Trump has just told Davos that all we need in the face of climate meltdown is “optimism”. No surprise there, as that positive fraud, Norman Vincent Peale, had a big influence on him:

    https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2015/10/donald-trump-2016-norman-vincent-peale-213220

  • At one point the Van Impes implied that King Juan Carlos of Spain might be the Antichrist. They also pushed theories such as some supercomputer the EU was supposedly building would be used to usher in the Number of the Beast.
    FYI for those who don’t know Impe is pronounced imp-eee.

  • Raging Bee

    He also followed the scenario of Hal Lindsey’s “The Late Great Planet Earth.” Which gives us some perspective about his mindset, and his schtick.

  • These statements are so stupid that burn.

    How odd Fundies do not move a finger because of them. Really odd –I thought the Lake of Fire had a spot reserved for false prophets and their ilk.

  • Tawreos

    What is genuine is an organisation called Cowboys for Trump.

    That’s just a group of guys that want to ride Trump.

  • Tawreos

    Is Paula pretending to eat a giant sandwich, I am guessing the same sandwich that Impe is showing us what he would look like when he tries passing the remains of?

  • llDayo

    Well, we should be safe from anything happening then since this movement relies on Jesus making a return. I’m not going to hold my breath on that prediction.

  • Raging Bee

    “A battle that will lead to ‘The Rapture?'” I thought the Rapture was supposed to happen BEFORE all the battles started. These loons need to get their End Times lunacy straight — I don’t need anyone how high the stakes are here…

  • Jason Carpp

    She needs to be permanently committed to a mental institution.

  • barriejohn

    All depends whether they’re Premillennialists, Postmillennialists, Pre-Tribulational Premillennialists, Post-Tribulational Premillennialists, and so on ad infinitum. You could be forgiven for thinking that they were making it all up!

  • Raging Bee

    …and will let Trump ride them if he promises them they’ll get to ride him later on in some undetermined time, in some undetermined way…

  • guerillasurgeon

    Yeah, whatever you might say about Ronnie, he knew one end of a horse from the other.

  • Kaja

    They may get their “holy War” but Jesus isn’t coming to rapture them as the rapture, biblically speaking, is a hoax/money- making racket.

  • barriejohn

    “That’ll be fantastic; that’ll be just wonderful; that’ll be great.”

  • Kaja

    ‘blood will flow to the bridles of the horses for 200 miles’ Guess they’ll be on horseback when Armageddon occurs. Since Gog and Magog will also be at it, they’ll be using spears, horses/chariots, and bows and arrows (see Ezekiel 38) cause the Bible says so. You would think that this would make them consider that the Bible might not be describing the 21st century but logic doesn’t seem to enter the brains of people like Paula White, Jack Van Impe, etc.

  • The End Times scenario these people promote also requires everyone, including Satan, to be a robot. After all he’s had 2000 years to read the book, or have someone read it to him if he’s illiterate, and realise his plans won’t work. Instead we’re supposed to believe he’ll do things written in the Bible to the letter, changing nothing.

  • Raging Bee

    Wake me up when all those factions can agree on a date.

  • Raging Bee

    That’s because GOD GAVE US ALL FREE WILL, so we CHOOSE to do exactly what all those prophecies say we’ll do.

  • sweeks

    I really can’t read your comments at work anymore… 😉

  • ephemerol

    Most apocalyptic fearmongerers don’t assume these “prophecies” will play out as written, to the letter. They take a pretty free hand at reinterpreting them. For example, they assume that god showed “John” cinematic visions of future battles, which he then wrote down in 1st century terminology. So they then say things like, “These ‘locusts with tails like scorpions’ in Revelation 9 are a 1st century description of military helicopters!

  • MuttsRule

    Surely the most interesting thing about Dr. Jack Van Impe (and his lovely wife, Rexella) is their 2001 joint Ig Nobel award in astrophysics for “research which demonstrated that one of the universe’s great mysteries, black holes,fulfill the theological and technical requirements to be the location of Hell.” The Van Impes were unfortunately unable to attend the ceremony, so the award was accepted by Professor Walter Lewin, astrophysics professor at MIT (holding a real doctorate degree), who stated:

    “As a result of their incredible insights, we now have to rethink our ideas about black holes — and I, for one, will be much more careful than
    ever about getting too close to the inner workings of black holes; and maybe my soul will be spared after all.”

    Now how could Christianity Today have forgotten to mention that milestone?

    .

  • Kaja

    The Huey helicopters from the good ole. ” The Late, Great Planet Earth” by Hal Lindsey. Guess they’ll have to take them out of mothballs/museums to make his end times scenario work out. Can you believe that that joker is still in the ‘prophecy’ business ?

  • Desperate Ambrose

    “But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.” ~ Mark 13:32,33

    So God the Father didn’t tell His Son, but He did tell Paula White?

    Sorry, no sale.

  • God’s love at work again. When insane people treats something written by people as insane as them, you get this.

  • Desperate Ambrose

    There is a lovely story about St. Francis of Assisi. As he was weeding his garden, someone asked him what he would do is he were told that Christ was returning to earth as they spoke. Francis replied, “I think I would try to finish this row”.

    The bigger issue is of competition and challenges: God is the most powerful being ever to exist. Who and/or what could present a challenge worthy of hin breaking a sweat?

    Avengers and X-Men will team up to fight a pack of wet paper towels.

  • But they still continue to believe that various things will happen in the exact same sequence as predicted 2000 years ago,

  • ephemerol

    Depending on the sequence your interpretation of the texts leads you to think was predicted way back when…see Raging Bee’s comment and barriejohn’s response to it…

  • Barry Duke

    She seems to want a bloody war. If we refuse to support Drumpf in his bid for re-election, she wants there to be violence and bloodshed. I’m hoping that doesn’t happen. The last thing we want is to give Evangelical Christians that satisfaction.

    Perhaps because they are the same so he would already know. I think the Holy Ghost, who is sadly neglected, is in there as well. Does the HG have a role and, if so, what is it? Does it do miracles in answer to prayers like Mother Theresa? If she is up there answering miracles the bar must be very low so why no HG miracles? Are there devout Christians who could get their prayers answered if they knew they had access to this neglected source of answered miracles?

    Oh, I dunno about that.

    The company my late father (God be good to him) worked for made brake linings, among other things. During one of our talks after he retired, he revealed to me that the company had a Chevy II Nova with a 427 as a test car. My eyes lit up. Do they still have it? Oh, no, they got rid of it years ago. Why didn’t he let me know? “Do you really think I was gonna tell a 17-year-old kid about the availability of a car like that?”

    My father kept secrets from me, so why would the other scenario be unusual? ; – p

  • Desperate Ambrose

    Hey, it pays the bills.

  • Broga

    Trump is dangerous because he is too stupid to realise how stupid he is. And just immature and unhinged enough to think he is a brilliant political tactician and foreign policy strategist. With very careful supervison and guidance he would struggle to earn a living as a basic grade clerk.

    This man is President and running loose in the White House and rampaging and destroying every attempt to protect the environment.

  • barriejohn

    Hahaha – and how many times did I hear: “We shall only know in Eternity what he achieved for God’s Kingdom…” or words to that effect? Another great favourite was: “The Lord said ‘Well done thou good and faithful servant’, not “Well done thou good and successful servant'”, and I’m pretty sure they’re still mouthing such platitudes today, even though I don’t attend any of their funerals!

  • 4th try to get a FUCKINGcomment past the motherfuckingnannyfilterfromHELLLLLLL.

    100 squared x 3.1417ish–ah, fuqq it, let’s just round it off at 3 = 30K square miles x, say, shoulder height on an average person–let’s round that off at 5 ft.

    So 30K x 640 (acres per square mile) x 5′ = 96,000,000 x 325,851 (Gallons of water per acre foot) for a grand total of

    312,816,960,000.000,000 gallons

    Now, then, there are an estimated 7.8B humans as of today. On average they prolly got like 9 qts of FUCKINGblood inside their FUCKINGskinbagz (10-12 qts is the estimate for adults so I’m offering “points” to that FUCKINGidiot’s propheteering FUCKINGbullschit).

    So, 7.8B x 9 = just north of 70,000,000,000

    312,816,960,000,000,000 minus 70,000,000,000 leaves 312,816,890,000,000,000 if my crunching is correct*.

    His numbers must include ever bit of FUCKINGspit, FUCKINGshit, FUCKINGpiss, FUCKINGsweat & FUCKINGblood of all of us AND our ancestors. That does seem like an extinction level imaginary event.

    ETA: There is an error in my calculations. It should be 70B x .250 (they’s 4 quarts in a gallon, after all) so it’s an even more outrageous statement.

    * Never a given

    I saw a protest sign once that said “I could SH*T a better president!” (without the asterisk). From his photo in the article, I think that’s what Jack Van Impe is doing.

  • Van Impe’s quote is accurate. I used it in a novel (a post-Millennialist vampire cult is trying to bring down the Second Coming. Yeshua, who is Immortal, when asked who he si says “I am he that treadeth out the winepress of God’s Wrath.” and gives the same numbers. He looks around the carnage in the church and says wryly, “Better get treading if we’re going to flood Nashville again. It’s not even ankle deep in the back.”

    Seriously? These people want to watch the world burn, from a safe location and get back at all the smart/atheist/etc people.

  • barriejohn

    He’s still alive! I had his books, as they were required reading for young evangelicals at the time, but they were nothing special (simple fare that would have appealed to many American readers, I’m sure). I heard all that nonsense about the EEC, Rome and The Revelation over and over again, and people got really excited about it all, just as they did about all the “earthquakes, natural disasters, and wars and rumours of wars” (Matt. 24:6) that apparently presaged the end of the age (1960s!).

    I, again, did a cursory Internet search and the purported Paula White quote came from a satirical website. Part of the information in this article is not true.

    I don’t mean to come across as defending this dim-witted Evangelical, and I’m not, but I expect these so-called contributors to, at the very least, get their content correct.

    But yeah, I’ve heard that myself many times.

  • Broga

    It is a great way to win arguments. Another, they use is when I ask who created God after the Christian says God created the cosmos they reply is “God was always there.”

    If I say then why cannot the cosmos also be there the answer is, “That’s different.” They don’t approach quantum theories, string theory, parallel worlds’ speculations. They already know.

    With so many different gods how do they know Jesus is the true god? They answer to that by one acquaintance is because he is the only one who, “Dared claim he was the son of God.”

    I have collected these over the years, and others, I don’t go looking for a discussion as I know it is pointless because there can be no recourse to facts, history or evidence.

  • God as described in the Bible would be a pretty hateable being if he existed. He supposedly murdered everyone on the planet, except for one old boat builder and his family. His idea of a righteous man was a guy willing to let his engaged daughters be raped. He had the avatar of what he supposedly wants us all to believe first appear in an isolated corner of the Roman Empire, ensuing his message wouldn’t be able to reach most of the world for almost 2000 years.

  • Which for some strange reason supposedly omnipotent God allows to happen, ,instead of just cutting to the chase and ending Satan’s existence.

  • God was uncreated by definition! C’mon, use your brains, stupid atheists!

    I’m sure you also realise that most Biblical “prophecy” actually refers to the people of the time in which it was written, and that its purpose was to “encourage” the Israelites and convince them that God had not abandoned them. That is why the Hebrew scriptures were collated during the Captivity, when there was a danger that the Jews might lose their sense of national identity. The intention was to give them a sense of national pride and hope for the future when all seemed lost. Similarly, when people read Gulliver’s Travels they didn’t imagine that those strange worlds really existed; they saw politicians and institutions of their own time lampooned and roared with laughter!

    A little late here, but the only source I can find for this is TheBizNews, which uses a common fake news tactic of posting a misleading headline and then backing it up with an irrelevant video. I’m calling fake.

    If the majority of people going around calling themselves “Christian” actually are not, and your organization is the one with the one true interpretation, then this misperception is your group’s responsibility to fix.

    Then you can act surprised that we all didn’t know your way of doing things was the only right one.

    Not before.

    True, but when the same person has undeniably said: “We command all satanic pregnancies to miscarry right now”, what is anyone supposed to think? She claims that this “command” was “taken out of context”. In what possible context would it make any sense whatsoever?
