Yesterday, right-wing preacher Lance Wallnau sat down for an interview with Ben Bergquam of Frontline America, during which he asserted that when President Trump ordered CNN’s Jim Acosta out of the Oval Office last week, he was exercising his spiritual authority to cast out demons.
Wallnau said that during the 2016 presidential election, he noticed that the campaign rallies of candidates like Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz were not being disrupted by protesters because “the devil wasn’t manifesting at those meetings.” By contrast, he said, “people that were working together at a level of evil” were routinely disrupting Trump rallies in an effort to intimidate his supporters.
Trump refused to back down to such bullying tactics, Wallnau said, “because there is a deliverance anointing on him for America.”
“What do you do when demons are manifesting?” he said. “You cast them out. He just cast out Jim Acosta last week. It was hilarious. He points at him and goes, ‘Out!’ One word—’Out!’—and security escorts the journalist out. It’s a deliverance anointing. He has got a Samson’s prophet anointing to deal with the Philistines. Any threat to God’s purpose for America and Israel, this guy will go and unhinge the gates because he has got a Samson-like anointing.”
“When you got that going on, why do you want to be a critic of him?” Wallnau asked. “Why do you want to be small-minded and pick on his Samson tweets? I could care less. He is not an elegant Isaiah prophet.”
