Jim Bakker has been back in the spotlight. He and his ‘end times’ pastor friend, Thomas Horn have been elated since the Presidential election. According to Horn, Donald Trump is almost certainly either the Messiah or a ‘John The Baptist’ type forerunner who will apparently be some sort of Armageddon Emcee and ‘announce’ the Messiah’s return.
Horn was pitching his new book ‘Final Fire’ to Bakker’s faithful flock.
Apparently, some Jewish Rabbis have asked Trump and Vladamir Putin to ‘rebuild the temple’ — referring to a holy Jewish temple that was destroyed about 2,000 years ago. And yes, seemingly, according to Horn, Putin is another holy man, somehow. That ‘request’ to them, is proof that this prophecy is coming true.
Oh, and Trump is ‘tough and strong’ so he must be the Messiah, according to them.
Next, they cite that those same Rabbis ‘called Jews back to Isreal’ when Trump was elected ‘because he is the Messiah.’ (really, he said it — check the video below …)
Horn then switches gears and says ‘some’ of the Rabbis are saying that Trump is really the ‘forerunner.’ Of course, a skeptical ear might see that as ‘covering one’s bases’ when the first prediction doesn’t work out and buys them another decade or two of making more profits … err — I mean prophecies.
Horn claims a ‘third’ element must be true for Trump to be ‘Messiah’ and that is that he must have a lineage that goes back to King David’s tribe. Throughout his pitch, Horn also has a time squaring up if he is the ‘Jewish Messiah’ or the ‘second coming.’ To him, it doesn’t seem to matter as he kind of puts a ‘one man’s second coming is another man’s messiah — but it’s all the same thing’ spin on it. Anyone who has seen these types in action knows that often they will convolute what is Jewish and what is Christian in an effort to make it look like they are all part of the same group. They seem to treat Judaism like their little brother when it suits them and like a red-headed stepchild when it doesn’t.

Oddly enough, a few years back, Horn was singing a different tune — claiming that Barack Obama might be ‘the antichrist’ or ‘the beast’ as it is sometimes referred to by Biblical scholars.
With vivid testimony to this, Satan offered to Jesus all the power and glory of the kingdoms of this world. He said, “All this power [control] will I give thee, and the glory of them [earthly cities]: for that is delivered unto me: and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine” (Luke 4:6-7).
Signs and evidence of such supernatural involvement in the current move toward worldwide totalitarian government have been increasing in political commentary, occult symbolism and numerological “coincidences” over the past decade. As public opinion is engineered toward final acceptance of the international subordination, we would expect to see these “mirrors of occult involvement” continue.
Recently there have been so many semiotic messages (visible signs and audible references that communicate subliminal ideas) in the open that it is starting to feel as if the “gods” are mocking us; challenging whether or not we will willingly admit their involvement. This has been exponentially true since the election of US President Barack Hussein Obama, the “President of the world” according to news services around the planet.
Strangely enough, Horn’s claim of Obama being regarded to as ‘President of the World’ never seemed to catch on, except in his writing, which cites a few offhand remarks. He spends the rest of his time commenting on how his supporters see him as an ‘answer man’ and ‘Messianic.’
And make no mistake, Horn is good at chopping up quotes to make them say just what he wants them to say — even if it wasn’t said. Case in point, check out this quote of Horn’s that ‘proves’ Obama must be evil;
Barack’s appeal is actually messianic… he… communicates God-like energy… What if God decided to incarnate as men preaching ‘hope and change.’ And what if we… let them slip away, not availing ourselves… to be led by God!
Now let us take a look at what the man actually said about Obama in an ‘opinion letter’ to a local newspaper. Here I have put the words Horn actually used in BOLD TYPE. I will let you be the judge of this preacher’s ‘honesty’ in using this quote, which was a response to Geraldine Ferraro saying that Obama only got as far as he did in the Presidential race in 2008 ‘because he was black’;
I can still see Geraldine Ferraro’s dumfounded look as she tried to defend her statement that Barack Obama has gotten where he is in this political race only because he’s black. She moaned, “Why is such a fuss being made about it? Why are my merely factual words creating such a stir?” (I paraphrase.) She also stated she feels “very hurt” about it all, “very hurt.” And bewildered.
Well, a couple of responses from me: Firstly, her statement was not a fact, it was an opinion. I have been examining the Obama phenomenon myself, and have concluded, at least for myself, a Midwestern white male, that Barack’s appeal is actually messianic, it’s something about his aura, his spirit, his soul, that exudes enlightenment in the making.Oh, he’s not fully enlightened, being that enlightenment is a process, not an event. But for reasons I can’t fully articulate, he is one of those individuals who communicates God-like energy (metaphorically speaking), in whom you can “feel” God.
Now, I’m using the term “God” to mean the loving, honest, just, and inspiring part of the force behind it all. You may not believe something’s behind it all, but I do. And I look for God constantly — that which exudes love, integrity, humility, depth, kindness, generosity — and more … supposedly.
So, Geraldine, I’m taking a special look at Barack Obama because he’s a lot closer to a Jesus-type than the other candidates, by quite a bit. What if God decided to incarnate as men preaching “hope and change.” And what if we didn’t recognize them, because we are so dull, and let them slip away, not availing ourselves of the opportunity to be led by God! Lord knows we’ve elected the anti-Christ often enough. Excuse me, George.
So you can imagine why even a white male like myself would be interested in a candidate “talking” the way Barack is talking. For those of you who are confused, what Barack is saying is in line with what God him/her/itself would say.
Secondly, my interest in Barack has nothing whatsoever to do with him being black, although it would be an ultimate irony that a black man was used to help set us free.
Beyond people like Horn and Bakker distorting people’s words, the most interesting thing is that the way they are talking about Trump is how they cited others talking about Obama — except without needing to chop up the quotes. Who knows, maybe Trump isn’t who they think he is, but the opposite. I do remember that according to prophecy, the ‘beast’ will fool the faithful (not a bunch of liberal atheists) and come as an ‘angel of light’ (does anything shine brighter than the gold Trump surrounds himself in?).
