‘End Times’ Pastor And Religious Right Activists Plan Massive Rally On National Mall
Most experts say that that the best way to “flatten the curve,” so to speak, to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is social distancing. However, religious leaders and other supporters of reopening the economy disagree.
There is now a massive movement on the right to stop the guidelines that could be preventing more death. One of those leading that movement is End Times pastor Jonathan Cahn.
This is a man who is busily promoting “The Return,” which would have the nation repent for its sins on September 26, 2020. The date is significant because it is 40 days prior to the 2020 presidential election, and the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower.
Cahn has intertwined his prophetic notions with the reelection of President Donald Trump, and advertisements for a march on the National Mall bear Trump’s image. Cahn says:
“This year—2020—is crucial, as it leads to a presidential election in which the stakes are higher and the necessity of prayer more critical than before. And even if the election goes in the direction of biblical values and righteousness, if we don’t see a spiritual turning, an awakening, a repentance, revival, then all the political, legal, judicial, and cultural efforts will ultimately fail or be undone.”
Cahn’s co-horts include many preachers and religious leaders who support Trump.
They include, but are not limited to: James Dobson, founder of the anti-LGBTQ hate group Focus on the Family; television religious figures such as Pat Robertson; former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, who now chairs Focus on the Family; and many others.
Many of these people are members of POTUS Shield, who are religious leaders and prophets that support Trump and are helping organize the rally. One member, Kevin Jessip, even introduced Mike Pence at an event, saying that the word of God “was and will continue to be the bedrock foundation of this great nation.”
“This is a Judeo-Christian nation,” Jessip added. “Christianity was born out of the womb of Judaism, and America has a spiritual umbilical cord tied to Israel that can never be taken away.”
Jessip added that Evangelicals are now “arising as an army.”
If this event takes place, it will surely be a cesspool for the spreading of COVID-19, and unless levels of safety have been reached by experts at that time, it likely should not take place.
