Q: Why Trump Saying He Is the “Chosen One” Matters

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I think a lot of people commenting, negatively about this video, didn’t watch it all the way through. I agree with you, Jacob that God does work in mysterious ways that we may not always understand and he’s definitely using President Trump, to clean up the eviI in our government along with the eviI in other aspects of the world we live in, today. I also believe that God is pouring out his spirit to those willing to accept it. Aspen Bear

      Exactly what evil has been cleaned up? Covered up is more like it. There is not a single soul who believes the government Fairy Tale about Epstein, 911 or the staged shootings. We have not had a single politician be honest with the voters.

        Bitchett is a Mossad Monkey, running agitprop for AIPAC’s latest fake potus zio-puppet, Donald Dump. Like most on this site- the priority is hyping what can be twisted to fit their agenda- and ignoring what doesnt.
        Dump’s Deep State Atty Gen Barr- who visited Epstein in jail before he died- allowed him to escape- and Dump didnt seem to upset by that. In fact, dump tweets more about beauty pageant breast implants than he did about Ep’s staged ‘suicide’ to Israel. How can you sheeple still believe this fraud?

        • Jeffery Pritchett

          Can you imagine being so dumb that you think everyone works for the Jewish CIA? You sound like a KKK Truther Neo Nazi rat baby lips.

    • DangerWillRoberson

      if you are not born again of God’s spirit then you are lost and if you die in your sins , no do overs your cast into hell. if your saved by child like blind faith? then Jesus will send the earnest deposit to you and you will be infused with the holy spirit that changes your DNA i believe and your saved from sin washed by the blood of Jesus, cuz the power is in that blood! the son of man had blood , this blood had and has dna. it is this God DNA that has the power to forgive and reconnect you to God! any true believer? can go to the thrown room of Yawa God and speak to him.

      God hear his own. its a great system, it keep folk who will not humble self or who are self lovers from the truth. God uses faith to keep out bad people and invite repentant folk. think, if you were God would you want men who did not believe you or even love you as eternal neighbors? No! who wants neighbors who hate? i dont. why would God be any different? all men die, period! we know all men lose about 21 grams at death, documented! i believe as do others that this weight is that of the human soul. the temple dies but the spirit or soul does not , you are eternal now but satan has your skull in his prison, under satanic deception a kind of jail for your mind heart! satan has this power to blind the human mind to the reality of God and his kingdom!

      today men have become cold lovers of self high minded with out natural affection. as the days before the flood men were so inclined to live for pleasure and rejecting the greater good of life to love one another in a human family instead men raped murdered and cannibalized each other and were prolific seed miners! creating all kinds of kimerias. hybrides half human half fallen angel, aliens in today’s vernacular!

      it is these aliens we know are fallen angels that do have angel technology and who do fly in UFO’s and do live in underground cities all over the face of the earth under the sea, volcanoes other ports of entry into the subterranean worlds that we know about! so if you read the word of God instead of mocking it and the people who are readers. we know from scriptures that there will be a falling away from the truth, all truth will be made illegal by heathen men in power like the democrats in america, hillary clinton types many other who are in blood contracts with satan to do his will in the land! these satanists will outlaw truth as has the us media, schools, churches, for the true believers truth is the need for the blood of Jesus applied to a man’s sin, cleasenings that sin off him and receiving a new spirit in his temple his body, and that spirit is the holy spirit. its this spirit that was designed from the beginning to be a man’s operating system but as adam and eve did sign away the earth to satan and all the chattels with it we are all born children of sin , satan’s property by law!

      all men are natural killers, destroyers and thieves its in the DNA of sin. its why its ez to sin and live in sin. God had to supply a new system so he reached out and gave his only son to be born of a women into the world and this is documented. his message was really simple and ez to understand? repent believe in me love God as you love your neighbor. be doers of the word and not hearers only. and if you keep his law the 10 commandments that shows you love him as well as the holy spirit you get as a deposit on the day when you receive a glorified body like Yeshua when he rose from the grave on the third day!

      again Jesus told him sheep all these things would happen, open your eyes! its happening! judge a tree by its fruits. i am not throwing stones at any human, we are not judges that is his job, we are to be light in a world of darkness and perversion. i say , work for God, its almost 2020 his cup is running over! read the title of the cup? :idea:

    • raburgeson

      Come on, give him his hour, he’s fighting thousands and winning with his small administration. The grandeur will wear off when he has to address what he hasn’t done.

    • Jeffery Pritchett

      When is this administration going to help the poor and the middle class and our veterans and the sick? Looks like NEVER! Just lining their fat pockets! No care for the planet. Only care for themselves! While people worship them like Jim Jones. Chosen ones help humanity last I looked unless their Charles Manson etc. Our government is ran by pedo serial killers on all sides! I report the news. But all sides can kiss my grits!

    • ElOregonian

      Depending on ONE man to solve the ills of this world is impossible. Jesus gave us salvation through his resurrection, but even he too was slaughtered while he lived on this corrupted earth. He gave an opportunity to escape the bonds of the earth, though each is given a choice on how they will be received.

        What are your sources? Fox News? Jobs are okay because everyone has 3 jobs. I’ve only seen terrible financial times under this administration. And continue to do so. So you think Trump is the Chosen one and the King of Israel and the 2nd coming of God as well? Republicans worship whoever is in office here then when they are out they trash them.. Example Bush who most of you swept under the rug. The guy that started the truther movement via 911.

          Perhaps the question should be where are your sources to counter every point made.
          Generally, a person who really wants to know will do his own due diligence to seek out if what was said is really so. It’s always most beneficial to do this before opening one’s mouth. It’s obvious you did none. The burden of proof and sources does not lie with the commenter, but rather with the one desiring the truth. It’s obvious the commenter couldn’t have all that info in his head at a moments notice; he had to go find it and compile it. If you want to be thought of as a credible commenter and/or content provider I’d suggest you do the same.
          Trump is the chosen one/the second coming of God/ Republicans worship/trash them/Bush are all weak attempts to change the subject to something you favor but are totally unfactual. If you are still butt hurt over lying and spying and cheating Hillary losing, it’s time to pull up your big boy pants and get over it. Sort of like we had to do for eight years with the lying, secret billion-dollar cash payment to muslin iran, lock up my records, phony birth certificate, you didn’t build that, muslim brotherhood terrorist loving, Christian hating, America hating, hussain. As hard as that was to stomach and as long as I lived in the US, he was my president. If you don’t accept Pres. Trump as yours, you need to find a country and a president you do accept. Then we’ll both be happy.
