Rick Joyner, head of Morning Star Ministries, has shown himself to be a big fan of Donald Trump. Joyner has said several times that God has sent The Donald to save America. Joyner’s Prophetic Perspective on Current Events show this week was a video butt kissing of epic proportions.
In this obsequious video, Joyner paints Trump as the second coming of a certain guy. You know, the one Pseudo-Christians say they follow, but don’t. In fact, Trump met with a group of those sort recently, receiving the blessing of a bunch of
grifters “Prosperity Gospel” televangelists. Meeting with Trump in his NYC office, these fakers — amongst them, Kenneth Copeland and Jan Crouch — laid hands upon The Donald and prayed for him. Most real Christians consider these folks to be apostates, but they’re okay by Trump. After all, they all share the same sort of sick, predatory avarice.
This meeting was hailed by Joyner as more proof that God favors Trump. Because Trump was so nice to these posers, Joyner misinterprets it as humility and respect. And this, he reasons, makes Trump worthy:
I don’t think there is anyone that we could elect to the presidency that is going to fix the mess we’re in right now. They really are beyond human remedy, we need the favor of God. And God gives His grace to the humble … I’m wondering if Donald Trump may be one of the most humble of the candidates.
Keep wondering. And, while you’re at it, Google “Narcissistic Personality Disorder.” Oh, look! Here’s a list of symptoms:
- Has a grandiose sense of self-importance
- Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love
- Believes that he or she is ‘special’ and unique
- Requires excessive admiration
- Has a very strong sense of entitlement
- Is exploitative of others
- Lacks empathy
- Regularly shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes
- Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him
My goodness! That’s a near-perfect description of Donald Trump. One has only to do a Google search of “Trump quotes” and you come up with gems like these:
- I’m intelligent. Some people would say I’m very, very, very intelligent. (Fortune, April 3, 2000)
- All of the women on The Apprentice flirted with me— consciously or unconsciously. That’s to be expected. (How to Get Rich, 2004)
- If I get my name in the paper, if people pay attention, that’s what matters. (Donald Trump: Master Apprentice, 2005)
- It’s very possible that I could be the first presidential candidate to run and make money on it. (Fortune, April 3, 2000)
- I’m really rich. (New York City, June 16, 2015)
- I do whine because I want to win, and I’m not happy about not winning, and I am a whiner, and I keep whining and whining until I win. (CNN, Aug. 10, 2015)
- For many years I’ve said that if someone screws you, screw them back. When somebody hurts you, just go after them as viciously and as violently as you can. (How to Get Rich, 2004)
- Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest — and you all know it! (Twitter, May 8, 2013)
Many of these quotes are pre-Twitter. Once Trump got onto that platform, he began sending out insulting tweets, calling people who criticize him in any way “loser,” “moron,” dummy” and “grotesque.” He really enjoys calling people names. We know, of course, that this is to build himself up. Poor lamb, his self-esteem must really be rock-bottom.
And this is the guy who Rick Joyner thinks God has “lifted up” to lead this country? God — any and all of them — help us.
