Lance Wallnau, a Seven Mountains dominionist who has been a leading Christian conservative apologist for Donald Trump, returned to Charisma magazine founder Steve Strang’s podcast yesterday, where he continued building his biblical justification for supporting Trump’s candidacy.
Asked why he thought his previous podcast with Strang, in which he had similarly made the case for Trump, was so popular, Wallnau speculated, “I think it’s because Christians, for some reason, really resonated with Donald Trump and lacked any kind of a theological justification for it.”
Wallnau explained that “a lot of people felt the anointing on Trump” but weren’t able to come up with any biblical reasons to support the candidate, but Wallnau “sensed something on Donald Trump and it just put me in a position of being open to hearing what God was doing.”
Wallnau told Strang how he thinks Trump, by being a “wrecking ball” to political correctness, could help Christian conservatives regain control of cultural institutions that are currently occupied by Satan. Seven Mountains dominionists hold that conservative Christians must battle Satan for control of the seven main institutions, or mountains, of culture: religion, family, education, government, media, arts and entertainment, and business.
Christians, he said, are faced with a “cultural landscape” of “burning cities, race challenges, the sensitivity of our bathrooms, transgender issues,” all the result of losing the culture war and handing these cultural institutions over to liberals.
“And what we never understood,” he said, “is that the power that you have when you win the culture war is that you occupy the gates of influence, and that means that academia, media, arts and government can create a whole new meaning for words, and that’s exactly what’s happened on our watch. So the power to define the meaning of things is the peculiar spoils of the culture war. And since Christians haven’t been doing very good at that, the political landscape has been just a minefield of politically correct terminology and language.”
Trump, he said, “came along and literally interrupted that whole process.”
Wallnau said that Trump would especially have to go up against “media mind control.”
“If I was talking as a Charismatic, I’d say there literally is a spirit that wants to control the minds of people and it’s operating through an ideological convergence of strongholds on the American mind through media,” he said. “Trump’s up against this, but I say he’s anointed as a wrecking ball and I’m going to be watching to see how it breaks through this.”
Wallnau said that he had only recently realized the significance of the Supreme Court in the upcoming election, saying that Supreme Court appointments could “literally reset a radical, almost socialist meltdown of America.”
“If Hillary Clinton has the power in this culture to promote radicals to the Supreme Court, that process of redefining the meaning of words I can almost guarantee is going to continue to extend itself right on down to the free speech of Christians to be able to speak biblical truth,” he said. “That’s the end game the devil’s at. So, I’m talking to Christians now, we must understand Satan wants to wrap up his institutional control of high places in government, media, arts, academia, and business is about to come under assault with Hillary Clinton. And the end game will be a redefinition, the ultimate redefining will be what America is, and it’s going to happen in her administration and it’s going to affect our children. For 40 years they’re going to have to live with it.”
