Two years into Trumpâ€™s tumultuous presidency, evangelical Christians remain some of his most loyal supporters.
A pastor recently stated on a popular evangelical Christian TV show that he interceded on behalf of Donald Trump to get him elected as president of the United Statesâ€”and that those busy at work trying to get him removed are â€œfighting against God.â€
He said: â€œWe stood in the courts of heaven, in the council of the Lord, and in that council, God told me to make a decree out of James 1:11, which is, â€˜All flesh is as grass, and flower is as the glory of the grass.â€™
On the Jim Bakker Show, Robert Henderson said that he had a prophetic dream in March 2016 in which Trump asked him to promote his presidential campaign in heaven he said, to cheers from the studio audience and a cry of â€œwowâ€ from the host.
â€œWe did that and thatâ€™s exactly what happened.”
Henderson was promoting his bookÂ Prayers and Declarations that Open the Courts of Heaven, which was advertisedÂ during the segment.
â€œWe did that and thatâ€™s exactly what happened,â€ he said, to cheers from the studio audience and a cry of â€œwowâ€ from the host.
