President Donald Trump received the green light earlier this week on Tuesday from a renowned clergyman to bring down the wrath of God on North Korea, CBN reports.
Robert Jeffress is an Evangelical Southern Baptist pastor and spiritual mentor to President Trump, and he didn’t hold back in a statement about the current tensions with North Korea, commenting, “God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary – including war – to stop evil.”
Strong words indeed.
Jeffress continued: “In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong-Un. I’m heartened to see that our president – contrary to what we’ve seen from past administrations, who have taken, at best, a sheepish stance towards dictators and oppressors – will not tolerate any threat against the American people.”
Here is Jeffress’ full statement:
“When it comes to how we should deal with evil doers, the Bible, in the book of Romans, is very clear: God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary — including war — to stop evil.
In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong-Un. I’m heartened to see that our president — contrary to what we’ve seen with past administrations who have taken, at best, a sheepish stance toward dictators and oppressors — will not tolerate any threat against the American people.
When President Trump draws a red line, he will not erase it, move it, or back away from it. Thank God for a President who is serious about protecting our country.”
Jeffress’ admonition comes during escalating tensions with the Kim Jong Un regime, and after President Trump vowed that North Korea would be met with “fire and fury like the world has never seen” if they continued aggressions against the United States and her allies.
In addition to divine permission, Department of Memes published a list of 8 reasons why President Trump should bomb the hell out of North Korea earlier today.
