Christian pastor: If US didn't kill Iranian general, Trump would have been in rebellion against God'
Right-wing pastor and avid Trump supporter Rick Joyner is crediting the President with doing God's work by ordering the airstrike that killed Iran's top military official, Qassem Soleimani.
Citing a verse in the bible, Joyner noted: "civil governments have not been given the sword for nothing. The sword is military power, but to avenge evil."
Had the president not acted, he "would have been in rebellion against God if [he] did not avenge evil" by killing Soleimani, Joyner said.
Pro-Trump pastor: God told me he sent Trump to open the doors for his gospels'
As the founder of King Jesus International Ministry, Guillermo Maldonado is associated with a number of "dominionist" and so-called "apostles," including self-appointed "prophet" Lance Wallnau, and he's part of the Evangelicals for Trump campaign which kicks off in Miami, Florida on Friday.
Like his fellow Trump-supporting evangelicals, Maldonado believes Trump is a harbinger of the End Times, raised by God to mark the second coming of Christ. At the 2019 Global Prophetic Summit, which was hosted by Jacobs' Generals International in November, he said God had told him:
"America, I have prepared this time, I have raised somebody in office to open the doors for my gospels."
He warned that the time is ripe for a civil war in the United States.
"The Lord showed me what is going to happen in America," Maldonado said. "The Lord said What you saw, there's a white horse that has been released upon the earth of civil wars,' and then he said That horse is coming upon America.'"
