Posing for the cameras, President Donald Trump held a King James Bible at St. John’s Church near the White House on Monday evening after law enforcement cleared protesters out of the area with tear gas before his visit.
President Donald Trump caused an absolute firestorm yesterday, but not because he ordered the military to take back the streets of our nation’s capital from ANTIFA forces. No, as the Commander-in-chief of the world’s greatest armed forces, most people expected him to do that. No real surprise there. But what drove the New World Orderelites and the Laodicean hirelings over the edge was when he lifted up that 7-sealed King James Bible. In that singular moment, the world was reminded where the real battle lies.
“I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.” John 17:14-16 (KJB)
Do you recall when we told you over 3 years ago that God was going to use Donald Trump to enact a ‘global shaking‘, and that it would be a time of judgment upon the whole world? That was a pretty big claim to make back in 2016, I’ll grant you, but here in 2020 it is coming to pass in technicolor, wouldn’t you say? The whole world literally is shaking at this very moment, from Bill Gates and ID2020, a global lockdown, crashing world economies, and now ANTIFA forces causing deathand destruction in 200 US cities, what we told you was coming has arrived. And in the midst of it all is the man God placed in power, defying his enemies and daring to lift up the word of God over a lost and dying world.
Now think about something for a moment. The St. John’s Church where Trump help up the King James Bible was burned by ANTIFA a few nights ago, they had set a fire inside. Where was that fire located? In the nursery of the church where babiesusually are, and in this neighborhood primarily black babies. If you had to guess, do you know the most-aborted race of babies that Planned Parenthood kills every day? Black babies. Planned Parenthood was started to exterminate black babies. Bill Gates father ran Planned Parenthood. Bill Gates wants to reduce the population through a global vaccination program. Trump goes to this church as raises up the King James Bible over all of it. Are you getting all of this…any of this, is it starting to sink in now what is really happening? God is speaking right now, extremely loud and incredibly close, are you listening? Time is almost up, I hope you are ready for what comes next.
Read the following tweets from the lukewarm Laodicean crowd, they despise President Trump lifting up God’s word, but to me it’s a blessing. Why? Because it is always a blessing when your enemies reveal themselves, that’s why. Pray for President Trump, the target on his back has grown considerably larger now, he is God’s man for this time. The end times.
President Trump’s Bible walk to church was an act of ‘sacrilege,’ says former Bush advisor
FROM RELIGION NEWS SERVICE: Tear gas canisters could be heard exploding as Trump spoke in the Rose Garden. He then walked over to the 200-year-old church that over the weekend was set on fire as demonstrators clashed with police. The protesters appeared to be acting peacefully before they were dispersed by force.
Trump is urging the nation’s governors to get tougher with violent protesters and to deploy the National Guard. He said in the Rose Garden that he is an ally of peaceful protesters, but he stressed that “I am your president of law and order.”

As someone who worked very hard to try to set a standard for responsible, ethical religious engagement from The White House, it is heartbreaking and infuriating to see a POTUS who has fallen short of every standard and broken every sense of propriety and respect and humility.424Twitter Ads info and privacy58 people are talking about this

Trump claims he’s using the Insurrection Act. He j/ ordered military to move protestors exercising their constitutional rights so he can go to a church. But his policies violate the theology of the church to care for the sick, the poor, immigrants. Utter hypocrisy & insanity.5,458Twitter Ads info and privacy1,962 people are talking about this
“This is idolatry,” said Rich Villodas, pastor of New Life Fellowship in Queens.Rich Villodas@richvillodas
The symbolism of the president giving that speech and then walking to a church to hold a bible for a photo op is crazy.
To take the Lord’s name is vain is not to simply curse while using it. It’s when God is used to bless self-serving agendas.

I can’t believe this fool has violently interrupted peaceful protests, so he can take a stroll over to a church and hold up a Bible after declaring war on his own citizens.2,061Twitter Ads info and privacy433 people are talking about this
Erin Burnett called President Trump holding up a Bible, a “bizarre” moment.
I find NOTHING bizarre about turning to God during one of our nation’s most difficult times.
CNN is a disgrace.
