It’s one thing to pray for protection for the president. But an angel with “flaming swords” is… an oddly specific request.
That’s the wish of self-described “prophetess” Amanda Grace, who said on the conspiracy-spewing “MC Files” program this week that the fire weapons would rescue Trump from possible impeachment.
“The den of lions will not touch [Trump attorney Jay Sekulow], for I have marked him and positioned him for such a time as this,” Grace declared on behalf of God. “I will give him vision and I will expose to him what is being plotted behind closed doors. Revelation will come forth and he will emerge an incredible witness and mouthpiece for my glory. For I, the Lord, have already ruled in the courts, the gavel has dropped.”
“We ask in the name of Jesus Christ, Father God, your army, your angelic army, your warring angels with flaming swords be dispatched, Father God, to shred, destroy, and put down every plot, scheme, contract, assignment, hex, vex, spell, and attempt of the enemy against the president, against those with him, against those praying for him, and against your people,” Grace prayed later in the broadcast. “We ask that you send, Father God, the captain of the army of the Lord of Hosts to lead that team right now — that legal team of the president’s — to lead them to victory and to expose and shine your divine light on what is hidden.”
You know who doesn’t need the protection of fictional flaming swords?
It’s said that sunlight is a great disinfectant, but this Christian would rather see supernatural intervention than the words of people with first-hand knowledge of Trump’s actions. It’s very telling.
The closing of the Lord’s Prayer, “Thy will be done,” makes a lot more sense here. If the Christian God is a God of justice and righteousness, then surely the right people will be punished accordingly for the damage they’ve wrought upon democracy.
But the Christian Right never seems content to let God take care of anything. It must be why they put out so much misinformation.
