OPINION (DN) – For only $45 you can establish a “point of contact” with God via a gold-plated coin engraved with President Trump and King Cyrus’ faces — according to the “Jim Bakker Show” at least. The coin is being peddled by Lance Wallnau, who claims God told him people need it to pray for Trump. “When I asked the Lord, ‘Why the coin?’ he said ‘Because when you take the coin, it’s a point of contact,’” Wallnau said in the recording. “So your faith is being released with a million other believers to pray protection and

peace and wisdom and counsel over the president of the United States and over his family.” The coin features Trump and Cyrus along with the words “The 70 Year Decree” and “Cyrus-Trump Proclamation.” Trump was compared by some to the Persian king after recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in 2017. The coin’s reverse also seems to imply a link between the 45th president and Isaiah 45:1 in the Bible which reads, “Thus saith the Lord to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I take hold of to subdue nations before him and to strip kinds of their armor, to open doors before him so that gates shall not be shut.” READ MORE
