SNIP-O-RAMA:
"Televangelist Jim Bakker hosted several fellow End Times preachers on his television program today to discuss the prophetic implications of the presidential election.

One of Bakker’s guests, Tom Horn, a prolific author of Last Days-themed books, spent an entire segment of the program explaining that “rabbis” have revealed that Trump may be the messiah, or a harbinger to the arrival of the messiah akin to John the Baptist.

“They’re looking at Donald Trump” as the messiah, Horn said of “the rabbis,” saying that Trump’s name “actually means ‘messiah.’”

Among the clues that Trump may be the messiah, he said, is that the president-elect is a kingly and warrior-like leader committed to protecting Israel and, according to Horn, rebuilding the Temple of Jerusalem.

Horn said that if Trump is not the messiah, then he is likely “the forerunner” to the messiah who “will start the message in the wilderness and the messiah is going to come in on his heels.”

If Trump turns out to only be a John the Baptist-like figure, Horn explained, then his inauguration will signal the beginning of the “countdown to the appearance of the messiah.”

But the “rabbis” who “do think he is the messiah,” Horn said, are looking for proof that Trump’s “bloodline goes back to the Davidic dynasty.”

Horn added that the Antichrist is also about to materialize, but is definitely not Trump.

“I’m just saying!”"

These "rabbis" that they speak of, wouldn't the messiah, at the very least, be Jewish?

I know this isn't true because I've been going faithfully to church every Sunday and they have never mentioned Trump. :lol:
We do however pray for Trump to have wisdom and lead us as a just and moral leader. Proof that Catholics are eternal optimists!

Catholics aren't much about the end times, though. Not like some of the Protestants are. My husband was raised in a hardcore Protestant sect and they expect and prepare for the rapture every day. They very fervently believe that we are currently in the end times, and in fact, some of his family think that the rapture has happened. I converted him to Catholicism and it's a complete 180 from the way he was raised. His family thinks Catholics are pagans who worship idols. They believe that when you are saved you are baptized in the Holy Spirit, no water involved, and then gain magical healing powers, as well as other spiritual "gifts".

So, in short, I'm not surprised that some Evangelicals think that Trump is the second coming, and I'm not surprised you aren't hearing the same thing at mass (neither are we).

There's a clue....

These people are charlatans. Jim Baker got out of prison and went right back to ripping the people off....


And of course Jesus is coming back, He said He would. And yes, we are in the very end times. But one would only believe that if they have been born again.

Hi,

The Jews don't believe that Jesus is the Messiah. They are still waiting for Scripture to be fullfilled. I think in the 80's or 90's, some Orthodox jews in NY gathered in the street to await the news from a Rebbe in Israel to announce he was the Messiah. He did not announce it and the group was disappointed, so they continue to wait. As far as I understand the Jews do wait for the Messiah.

How DT could be included I do not understand.

You are correct. While some of the other religions believe that Jesus was the messiah and the messiah will be returning, the Jewish people did not recognize him as one. They are waiting for the messiah to appear for the first time.
