Trump Does Something For The First Time In Inauguration History And Christians Everywhere Are Cheering

Six prominent faith leaders will help swear in President-elect Donald Trump on his inauguration day. Among the religious figures who will offer readings and give the incoming president the benediction are the evangelical Rev.

Franklin Graham of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Catholic Cardinal Timothy Michael Dolan, the Archbishop of New York.

On Dec. 28, the Trump inaugural committee announced the names of faith leaders who would attend the president-elect’s swearing-in ceremony.

Included on the roster are Graham, Dolan, Reverend Dr. Samuel Rodriguez, Pastor Paula White of the New Destiny Christian Center, Rabbi Marvin Hier of the Simon Wiesenthal Center and Bishop Wayne T. Jackson of the Great Faith Ministries International, CNN reports

Rodriguez, who is the president of NHCLC, the largest Hispanic Christian organization in the world, said: “There is truly no greater honor than to serve one’s country in such a special way on such a momentous occasion.” He also considers praying at the inauguration a “sacred duty.”

Graham himself is the president of the massive charitable organization Samaritan’s Purse, which seeks to “meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God’s love through His Son, Jesus Christ,” as per the nonprofit’s mission statement.

Rabbie Marvin Hier, the leader of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, will be the first rabbi to pray during a presidential inauguration since Ronald Reagan’s inauguration over 30 years ago, as per the Jerusalem Post.

Bishop Wayne T. Jackson leads the black Detroit church Donald Trump visited while on the campaign trail in the fall. After hosting Donald Trump in his church, Jackson said, “It’s not about being a Judas to my people. I love my people. I feel that we should be better off than what we are. This is not an endorsement. This is an engagement for him to tell us what he wants to do,” as per the Detroit Free Press.

Tom Barrack, the chairman of the Presidential Inaugural Committee said, “I am pleased to announce that a diverse set of faith leaders will offer readings and prayers at the swearing-in of President-elect Trump and honor the vital role religious faith plays in our multicultural, vibrant nation.”

The Presidential Inaugural Committee is planning a National Prayer Service at the Washington National Cathedral on January 21.

Speaking recently Graham said,

God showed up through the will of the American people and Trump was easily elected.

“Since the first inaugural ceremony, our leaders have paid tribute to the blessings of liberty that have been bestowed upon our country and its people,” Tom Barrack, the chairman of the Presidential Inaugural Committee, said in a statement. “I am pleased to announce that a diverse set of faith leaders will offer readings and prayers at the swearing-in of President-elect Trump and honor the vital role religious faith plays in our multicultural, vibrant nation.”

Rabbi Marvin Hier, head of the Simon Wiesenthal Center and first Rabbi in 30 years to be invited and Bishop Wayne T. Jackson, whose Detroit black church Trump visited this fall while campaigning round out the religious leaders attending for Trump.

What do you think about the list of faith leaders who will be traveling to Washington, D.C. to speak at Donald Trump’s swearing in ceremony?

The American Christians and Christians all over the world knows that our God is responsible for Donald Trump being elected President of these United States. We also understand what Obama is trying to do to Israel in his last few days in Office and we know for a fact that as long as we continue to Pray no harm will come to Israel because Our God is in control and no petty politician like Obama or any other leader of any Nation on earth will harm the apple of Gods eye ( Israel ).
