Colorado State Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt, aka, “Dr. Chaps,” is promoting on his “Pray in Jesus Name” website a column by a Ted Cruz backer who denounces Donald Trump as “demonic” and says Trump voters are seeking a “false Messiah.”
The column’s author, Chicago-based pundit Andre Traversa, describes himself as “an online radio talk-show host, media consultant, and Bible-believing Christian with a deep concern for this nation.” Traversa sees in Ted Cruz “the opportunity to elect the most ideologically conservative president I’ve seen in my lifetime.”
He says that as Trump’s attacks on Cruz “assumed a dark and malicious character,” he realized “this was no ordinary political squabble, but a battle between the forces of light and darkness.”
When God revealed this to me, I felt called to spend a week in fasting and prayer. Today is my 6th day of having only juice and water, while I seek the Lord in prayer for our nation, as well as for revival in my own heart, life, and personal relationships.
For the last several months, I have increasingly felt that Trump voters were seeking a false messiah, asking Trump to be their personal Savior.
Traversa criticizes what he says are blatant lies that he says Trump’s “low information voters” don’t seem to care about.
In the last few days, Trump’s demonic face has become even more apparent, even to the point of blasphemy.
On Friday, Trump claimed that if people were depressed due to losing their job, “I will lift your depression, I will make you happy.”
Does Trump think he’s Jesus, who can heal our wounds and save us from ourselves? And speaking of Jesus, notice how Trump never mentions him, even while he claims to be a Christian.
Traversa says the Republican establishment would prefer Trump because Cruz will not make deals with them, and that Cruz is “a man of God” who “has promised to attract millions of non-voting Christians to the polls, which would change American politics forever.” That’s why, he reasons, Cruz is being attacked.
This prospect scares the daylights out of the elites in both parties, who hate the name of Jesus more than they’ll ever publicly admit.
Make no mistake, our war is not against flesh and blood, but against powers and principalities, and spiritual wickedness in high places.
A Bible-believing Christian president is a powerful weapon against demonic forces.
Do your part in Iowa, vote Cruz, and fight on the side of righteousness.
