But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. – Matthew 24:36
Yet that doesn’t stop false prophet, Steve Cioccolanti of Discover Church in Melbourne, Australia, from making a ridiculous link between Donald Trump and the end times. In and endless effort by the religious right to legitimize their obstinate need for a king, they have gone to incredible lengths to convince themselves that Donald Trump is their savior. “What if nothing can explain it, except the hand of God is on Donald Trump,” he says, comparing him to Nebuchadnezzar and Cyrus.
In this video, Cioccolanti says that Trump’s nickname, “The Donald,” literally means “world ruler.” He then continues, stating that the name, “Trump,” is a play on the words, “triumph,” and “trumpet.” He then leads people into an explication of 1 Corinthians 15:51-52, insinuating that Donald Trump may be the “last trump” referred to in this passage.
Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. – 1 Corinthians 15:51-52
Now, keep in mind that this prophetic oratory came after about 20 minutes of warming up to his audience with somewhat credible biblical teaching (full video here). This is the typical approach of New Apostolic false apostles and prophets–they gain credibility by mixing truth and error. Go ahead and gain trust from your audience, then fill them with the spiritual miasma.
And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness.Their end will correspond to their deeds. – 2 Corinthians 11:14-15
