What did you think was going to happen?

For their support and willingness to turn a blind eye from his sinful ways Trump promised the Evangelicals a couple of things;

  1. Conservative Supreme Court judges with the hope of overturning Roe v. Wade (abortion).
  2. Protection to allow them to continue to discriminate against people who don’t share their religious beliefs.
  3. The expansion and protection of Israel.

Most of you understand one through two, but number three may stump you. Why would American Evangelical Christians be worried about Israel? The home of the Jews? The people who murdered their beloved Jesus. Why? Because without Israel and specifically without Jerusalem, Jesus can’t come home.

You see for conservative Evangelicals the occupancy of Jerusalem has nothing to do with politics, peace or the Palestinians. They don’t care that the region has important religious and historical significance to three major religions of the world. For Evangelicals control of Israel is about prophecy, the Bible and the end-times. Without Israel how will Jesus return? Where will Jesus return?

While Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner opened the new American Embassy in Jerusalem yesterday for Daddy Trump 58 Palestinian protesters were killed by Israeli forces. While Pastor John Hagee and Pastor Robert Jeffress said prays to bless the new Embassy, two Evangelicals leaders known for their antisemitic views, Muslim blood was shed in the land of Jesus.

Was this death and bloodshed a big surprise? Nope, not to me. Was it a big surprise to Trump or Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu? Not at all, Israeli was fully prepared for the protest and the backlash. The most important thing, no matter how many dead bodies He has to step over to get there, is that Jesus has a place to come home too.

Here is the Evangelical mindset of why Jerusalem is so important as detailed by the oh so right reverend Franklin Graham; “70 years ago today, the State of Israel was established. In fulfillment of prophecy, God brought the nation into being, and He is sustaining them for the day when the Lord Jesus Christ Himself will return and establish His throne in Jerusalem as Scripture tells us. I believe it is significant that the United States has formally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and is moving our embassy there. This has been promised by past U.S. presidents and administrations, but it had never become a reality, until now.” 

What Trump has delivered will put him in the Evangelical hall of fame. Songs will be written about him and babies will be named after him. Basically what he bought himself with the Evangelicals is a lifetime of credits to sin anyway he wants or knows how. With this “gift” to Jesus and the Evangelical world I am not sure what dastardly thing he could do to turn them away from him. Porn stars? Playboy Bunnies? Grab them by the pussy? Come-on, no big deal. Trump fulfilled the prophecy, Jesus can finally come home!

For those of us that don’t share or believe in this fairy-tale here is what we can expect over the coming months and years with this move, violence, bloodshed and death. The Evangelical world is anxiously awaiting the “Last Days” of Revelation which they anticipate will be filled with, you guessed it, violence, bloodshed and death. But they believe they will be shielded from this carnage falsely manufactured by their own ignorance. And their sect, their cult, will reign victorious alongside of Jesus, Jesus the Christian not the Jew, he lost His Jewishness years ago, in a place that Trump traded them for their vote.

“The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months. It opened its mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world” – Revelation 13:5-8

    Dearest God … please turn me into an ostrich so I can bury my head in the sand and never again know what this ignorant, pussy-grabbing, egotistical, twitter-writing individual is going to do to this wonderful place currently known as the (freedom from religion) United States of America.

    The Israelis don’t give a damn about the evangelicals…they think they’re crazy. What they do care about is the expansion of their “homeland” back to what it was in the time of David. They literally steal property from the Arab population and shove the Arabs into concentration camps in the west bank and gaza..then say Hamas provokes them into retaliatory attacks. The Arabs suffering from a lack of food and water, and having had their homes shelled by the IDF retaliate with….wait for it…ROCKS. Welcome to the world of trump and pence. Trump stupidly does whatever his “advisors” flatter him into, then Pence sucks up to the crazies for votes in 2020, nevermind that we lose all our allies and bring about world war three. Jesus is coming back soon. ARGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG
