Israel’s Richest Person Says “Book of Trump” Should Be Added to the Bible
Israel’s richest person, Miriam Adelson, recently claimed that a book in Donald Trump’s honor should be added to the canon of Scripture in appreciation of his contributions to the nation of Israel.
Adelson made the claim first in the newspaper, Israel Hayom. Her words then appeared in the Las Vegas Review Journal over the weekend (it’s now behind a pay-wall, but you can see her words at Israel Hayom, linked above, a publication over which she is CEO). According to the billionaire, who is worth an estimated 22 billion dollars, Donald Trump’s gifts to the Israeli people are so great that a book about him should be canonized into Sacred Writ.
Adelson wrote, “Scholars of the Bible will no doubt note the heroes, sages and prophets of antiquity who were similarly spurned by the very people they came to raise up.”
Adelson continued, “Would it be too much to pray for a day when the Bible gets a ‘Book of Trump,’ much like it has a ‘Book of Esther,’ celebrating the deliverance of the Jews from ancient Persia?”
“Would it be too much to pray for a day when the Bible gets a ‘Book of Trump,’ much like it has a ‘Book of Esther,’ …?
Adelson listed his accomplishments that have benefited the Israelis, saying…
“Under his watch, America has finally made good on its decades-old pledge to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move the US Embassy there. In another service to historical justice, Trump declared the Golan Heights to be Israeli territory, and in service to the security of Israel and the whole world, he withdrew the United States from a nuclear deal with Iran that was a contemporary echo of the Munich Agreement.
Adelson continued, “Trump is a man of his word. On the campaign trail, he promised to protect Israel, to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem, to quit the Iran nuclear deal. And he has kept each and every one of those promises – unlike previous presidents who traded principle for political expediency.“
Trump certainly has done more for the Israeli people than any other president in American history; of that there is no doubt. Many evangelical Christians are quick to compare Trump to various Old Testament kings, like Cyrus, who had questionable personal morality or even denied Yahweh’s religion, but who were used by God.
However, the story arc of the Bible is not about Israel, but about the seed of Israel who would save mankind, Jesus Christ. And that story has already been completed.
…and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book (Revelation 22:19)
