Self-proclaimed ‘prophet’ claims Trump legitimate US president, Biden coup planned
A self-proclaimed “prophet” has actually stated Donald Trump is the genuine United States president– which the Pentagon is preparing a coup versus Joe Biden.
Minister Jeff Jansen is among a gaggle of United States pastors and preachers who “prophesied” Donald Trump would extremely win the 2020 election. It was “God’s will”, they firmly insisted.
When their prediction failed, lots of altered tack.
“You have to realise what’s taken place in our nation has been a hostile takeover,” Jansen, the creator of Global Fire Ministries, declared on a You Tube interview previously this month.
“It’s a tale of two presidents … because president Trump has never conceded. He never agreed to anything. Never stepped away. Never conceded. He basically stepped aside momentarily, while things are being sorted out.”

It’s simply among a wide range of prompting preachings that has the United States Homeland Security Department worried. It’s secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas, recently cautioned violent extremism was the“single greatest terrorism-related threat”
“We are focused on gathering intelligence and information and sharing it in actionable form with our state, local, tribal and territorial partners,” he stated.
And there’s lots of it out there, being in plain sight.
“The last defence is military,” Jansen informed his You Tube audience.
“So the military … is in control right now. They’ve already made their determination. Now it’s about execution … There will be civil power restored in the United States. And that president will be Donald J. Trump.”
It’s exactly the sort of ministry that United States intelligence firms think “will almost certainly” result in more violence.
The report significantly prevented pointing out religious beliefs as a prominent type of incitement. Instead, it described “abortion-related”, “anti-government” and “racially or ethnically” inspired extremists.
But it didn’t pull any punches over the threat presented by conspiracy theories, whatever their story.
“Narratives of fraud in the recent general election” the “emboldening impact of the violent breach of the US Capitol” and “conspiracy theories promoting violence” will “almost certainly” timely domestic extremists to act, an Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) report cautioned.
It’s a point not lost on Trump’s prophets.
Pastor Robin Bullock stated on You Tube that the combined power of “Christian prophets” would lead Trump back into power.
“Don’t mess with us, Satan,” he stated.
“Don’t mess with us, corrupt political regimes. Don’t mess with God’s people like that, because I’m going to tell you something: If you mess with us, we’ll call him back for three terms.
“Don’t mess with us.”
Pastor Rick Joyner recently utilized You Tube to urge “true disciples of Christ” to get ready for civil war with the “evil” forces that “stole” the November election.
White evangelical Christians have actually represented a secret Trump citizen base considering that prior to the 2016 election. Some 80 percent backed him then. A comparable number voted the very same method in 2020.
Many mention problems such as reproductive and LGBTQ rights as their encouraging issue.

“Trump really won by a huge margin. Maybe one of the biggest margins ever. How did it get stolen from us like it did?” Joyner stated, regardless of lots of suits in a wide range of states being tossed out of court for absence of proof.
“It will be a civil war, and it’s going to be increasingly worse with the increasing time it takes for Americans to stand up and push back against this evil that has taken over our land,” he stated.
“You know, there’s a time for peace and a time for war, it says in Ecclesiastes. Well, we’re not headed towards peace right now … and we need to prepare for it. We need to put out the word that people need to be prepared.”
There are indications individuals have actually currently been observing such preaching.
Christian iconography and messaging included greatly throughout the January 6 Capitol Hill insurrection effort.
Rioters brought big wood crosses while Biblical quotes and ministry mottos embellished a host of placards. A “Jesus Saves” indication was set along with a gallows set up on the United States parliament’s actions.
“This is not only dangerous and unpatriotic but also blasphemous, presenting a picture of the gospel of Jesus Christ that isn’t the gospel and is instead its exact reverse,” Southern Baptist Convention president Russell Moore informed United States media.
Jansen has when again attempted his hand at prediction. He informed his You Tube audience that Trump would be back in the White House “by the end of April”.
But he’s hedging his bets by trying to redefine the significance of the word prediction itself.
He informed United States media: “Unfortunate people SWEAR they heard from God and when what we see in mainstream media doesn’t match that, they assume they missed it. A prophetic word is God’s DESIRES and His PLANS for what NEEDS to happen”.
In other words, a prediction is a pronouncement– not a vision of the future.
Pastor Bullock has actually likewise hedged his bets.
“But you’re going to have to pray for the rightful president, whether he wants to walk back into this or not. You must pray that he wants to do it because God won’t make him do anything. Is it his will? Yes. Is he the president? Yes. That’s why he could just walk right back in, and God will supernaturally move things out of the way.”
But not all fallen prophets are so figured out to reword history.
Christian “prophet” Jeremiah Johnson likewise declared Trump’s fate to win a 2nd term as President.
When he got it incorrect, he apologised.
He presumed regarding end his ministry.
“I believe that this election cycle has revealed how desperately we need reformation in the prophetic movement,” Johnson stated in a video.
“I have serious concerns for the charismatic-prophetic world that, if we do not wake up, if we do not humble ourselves, there is greater judgment to come.”
VOICES IN THE WILDERNESS
Christian nationalism is not constantly violent, writes Baylor University associate professor Samuel Perry.
“But Christian nationalist violence has been a presence during the Trump administration. More broadly it has been on the rise over the past few decades,” he stated.
“When the demonstration outside the Capitol escalated into a siege, the violence mixed with Christian symbols in a way that recalled past acts of political violence and terrorism associated with Christian nationalism.”
Some United States evangelical leaders concur.

“It is very important to understand we are not condemning being patriotic,” Evangelical Lutheran Church Reverend Elizabeth Eaton stated.
Instead, she stated, a follower should not conflate a love of nation and a love of God into Christian nationalism.
“One of the barriers to speaking to these conspiracy theories is many pastors and leaders rightly recognise this stuff as crazy, so they assume it doesn’t need to be spoken to,” Mr Moore stated.
“But we live in a crazy time.”
Prof Perry indicated the Ruby Ridge and Waco sieges, the 1995 Oklahoma City and 1996 Atlanta Olympics battles and the murder of 11 individuals in attacks on abortion centers as indications of the emerging Christian nationalist pattern.
“Both the Christian right and right-wing white supremacist groups aspire to overcome a culture they perceive as hostile to the white middle class, families, and heterosexuality,” he stated.
“It is important to note that the vast majority of Christian nationalists never engage in violence. Nonetheless, Christian nationalism does supply a vocabulary and narrative suggesting that unless Christians control the state, the state will attack or suppress Christianity.”
