Because Trump is the closest we can get to something, something… an antichrist.
The Evangelicals for Trump campaign kickoff begins Friday in Miami at the church of self-described “apostle” Guillermo Maldonado, founder of King Jesus International Ministry, which his website calls “one of the fastest-growing multicultural churches in the United States.”
Maldonado is associated with dominionist “prophets” and “apostles” like Lou Engle, Ché Ahn, and Cindy Jacobs. Pro-Trump “prophet” Lance Wallnau promoted the Evangelicals for Trump launch during a “2020 Prophecy” video livestream on New Year’s Day, portraying the 2020 election as a spiritual battle and repeatedly urging his supporters to attend the Friday night rally.
Like other pro-Trump “prophets,” Maldonado believes that God has raised up President Donald Trump as part of his plan for the End Times and the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Speaking at the 2019 Global Prophetic Summit hosted by Jacobs’ Generals International in November, Maldonado said God told him, “America, I have prepared this time, I have raised somebody in office to open the doors for my gospels.”

After people leave a cult and start to recover, they often report that they “fell under the spell” of a leader and did things they now don’t understand.
