Recently, an evangelical minister revealed an alleged prophecy about how billionaire businessman and presidential hopeful Donald Trump would help expose a ‘darkness’ in America.
The minister in question, Jeremiah Johnson, wrote about his prophetic experience for Charisma Magazine on Tuesday. Since its publication, the post has been shared over 40,000 times.
In it, Johnson wrote:
“I was in a time of prayer several weeks ago when God began to speak to me concerning the destiny of Donald Trump in America. The Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, “Trump shall become My trumpet to the American people, for he possesses qualities that are even hard to find in My people these days.
Trump does not fear man nor will he allow deception and lies to go unnoticed. I am going to use him to expose darkness and perversion in America like never before, but you must understand that he is like a bull in a china closet. Many will want to throw him away because he will disturb their sense of peace and tranquility, but you must listen through the bantering to discover the truth that I will speak through him.”
“I will use the wealth that I have given him to expose and launch investigations searching for the truth. Just as I raised up Cyrus to fulfill My purposes and plans, so have I raised up Trump to fulfill my purposes and plans prior to the 2016 election.
You must listen to the trumpet very closely for he will sound the alarm and many will be blessed because of his compassion and mercy. Though many see the outward pride and arrogance, I have given him the tender heart of a father that wants to lend a helping hand to the poor and the needy, to the foreigner and the stranger.”
Reactions to the ‘prophecy’ were mixed.
Some people were pretty skeptical:

Johnson said that he’s received over 1,000 messages since he published his prophetic vision of Trump. In addition, he claims he will ‘publicly repent’ if it doesn’t come to fruition.
