On the latest episode of his “Prophetic Perspectives on Current Events” program, televangelist Rick Joyner declared that it was “really a God thing” that Donald Trump was elected president and proclaimed that Trump will soon “have an encounter with God” that will result in him using the power and prestige of the White House to help rebuild the church in America.
Likening Trump to King Cyrus from the Bible, Joyner said that Trump “is going to help provide much of the resources required to finish the house of God or to build it” in this nation. Just as Cyrus commanded the people to provide the Jews with the resources they needed to rebuild the temple, Joyner said “I think you’re going to probably see that happen from the Trump administration” once the church puts in place “mature leadership” who can handle all the wealth that is about to comes its way.
Trump will be just the first in a long line of “righteous” leaders who will arise all around the world, Joyner predicted, saying that “Donald Trump is a whole lot more righteous than most would ever suspect.”
“When I first met him, I said, ‘This guy has a fear of the Lord like very few in the church have,'” Joyner said, adding that while Trump has no respect for his fellow man, whom he has learned to manipulate and use, he does have tremendous respect for people of God.
“When he gets around clergy, he becomes the most humble, teachable person you could imagine and it’s real,” Joyner said. “It’s sincere.”
Joyner said that, in short, Trump could not have gotten elected “without a miracle; he got the miracle and it is a purpose of God.”
