According to the leader of an influential megachurch in Redding, California, God is angry about the ongoing impeachment process surrounding President Donald Trump. And he’s blaming God’s wrath on “the mutilation of children being transgendered.”
“The Lord is going to step in sovereignly,” Vallotton said. “He’s going to bring it to a close. It’s going to be ugly. But it’s going to be the Lord.”
Then he informed his audience that God wants Trump to serve a second term.
“The Lord gave me a prophetic word for President Trump,” he said before reading the following biblical verse: “No weapon that’s formed against you will prosper, and every tongue that accuses you in judgment will be condemned.”
Vallotton told his congregation that he didn’t like or understand why God chose Barack Obama to serve to terms, but that’s okay because they don’t have to understand or even like what God is doing. He asserted that God is disregarding their free will and taking world events out of human hands. These are the times, he noted, that God becomes a “captain” and “your job is to follow.”
Further, he said, God is in a bad mood right now and that no one wants to be in the way when that happens.
Vallotton then mentioned the biblical story where God tells the children of Abraham they will be enslaved for the next 400 years before they have the chance to bring judgment on the Amorites.
Bethel Redding, founded by evangelist Bill Johnson, is part of a growing Christian movement that believes God is empowering modern prophets with the same powers as those the Bible attributes to their ancient counterparts. This even includes the church’s music label and it’s School of Supernatural Ministry.
Johnson’s son, Brian, who heads Bethel Music, and his wife Jenn, accompanied by several of the faithful, recently prayed over Trump in the Oval Office.
