The war over the evangelical vote has ramped up between Ted Cruz and Donald Trump, unfortunately for the evangelicals both represent a false version of Christianity. Trump is an obvious poser who knows absolutely nothing about the Christian faith and has demonstrated his ignorance on the campaign trail time and time again. If Trump is disingenuous in his personal faith, then his entire campaign is disingenuous in everything of substance you can guarantee. Some things go without saying.
Ted Cruz on the other hand has a father who is a pastor, and who is actively campaigning for him giving Ted a life-long instruction in the Christian faith. Rafael Cruz as a pastor has been able to use his connection into the upper echelons of the evangelical movement to win support among some very well known figureheads and wealthy donors. Late December the Cruz's brought together a large assembly of Christian leaders, all of who are particularly interested in Ted Cruz simply because his faith will undoubtedly have a massive impact on American Foreign policy if he were to win the presidency. The Washington Post gives us details as to who was in attendance and also some insight as to what they wanted to see in a Ted Cruz presidency.
"Those in attendance at the Monday sessions included prominent televangelists, such as John Hagee, pastor of the Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, and James Dobson, founder of the Focus on the Family organization. Richard Land, president of the Southern Evangelical Seminary and a longtime leader of the Southern Baptist Convention, was there, according to interviews with attendees, most of whom were not authorized to discuss the off-the-record session."
He took questions about foreign policy, the U.S.-Israeli relationship, ISIS and the economy. There were few questions on social issues such as gay marriage and abortion, in part because Cruz's opposition is well known (Washington Post)."
Three things to note in this article, first this was a "off-the record session", second it was made up of rabid pro-Israel leaders like super-PAC founder David Barton, Dr. Dobson of Focus on the Family and John Hagee to mention a few, and lastly that the majority of the questions dealt with Israeli relations and foreign policy objectives and concerns.
This is extremely telling in of itself as to the direction Ted Cruz plans on taking the country if he wins the election. You then couple this with the recent outlandish statements made by both his father Pastor Cruz and Goldman Sach/CFR memeber Heidi Cruz, Ted's wife, you will begin to see that his bid for presidency has little to do with politics and more to do with fulfilling a theocratic vision and manifesto for America with Cruz in the leading role.
Ted's God Complex
This February, Pastor Rafael Cruz was recently seen on stage with Pastor Kenneth Copeland at his church on a Sunday service in which Copeland proclaimed Ted Cruz to be anointed as the next president, he stated,
“I believe, with all my heart, that his son is called and anointed to be the next president of the United States,”

In a video interview with Dr. Michael Brown, Rafael Cruz stated that it was in a family prayer gathering where they all heard a word from the Lord anointing Ted as the country's next president.
“It was as if there was a presence of the Holy Spirit in the room and we all were at awe,” Cruz stated, “and Ted, all that came out of his mouth, he said, ‘Here am I Lord, use me. Here am I Lord, I surrender to whatever Your will for my life is.’ And it was at that time that he felt a peace about running for president of the United States. (Bipartisan Report)”

His wife echoed this on interview just recently when she stated Ted will show the country the "Face of God".

These comments coming from Ted's closest family members can be construed in only two ways, either they are trying to manipulate the religious imaginations and sentiments of their base towards support, or they truly believe that Ted Cruz has been anointed by God in much the same way that David was anointed in the Old Testament. Neither of these scenarios are good, one is outright devious, and the other is outlandishly cultish, and wholly un-presidential.
You would think nobody with a lick of sense would buy into Ted Cruz's brand of crazy. Campaigning with family members that believe you to be anointed by God in this day and age is pretty out there right? Especially considering how the Bible is clear that Jesus is the last anointed prophet, priest and king after the order of Melchizedek (Hebrews 6:20). Yet despite these scriptural teachings here is Rafael Cruz as far back as 2012 basically making illusions that Ted Cruz is exactly that, a prophet, priest and king while speaking to Larry Huch's church in Irving, TX.

Pay attention in the above video Larry Huch when introducing Rafael Cruz makes the statement that he believes that Christians in this country will help "usher in the coming of the Messiah." These statements and allusions should be hugely problematic for Christians and the secular body of the American citizenry, no earthly person or power will "usher" in the 2nd coming, that job is God's alone per scripture.
"But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only." Matthew 24:36
So why is it that these public statements are not off putting to the evangelical body of believers? The answer is because the body of evangelical believers has been sold a horribly false doctrine that believes that modern Israel and America are very close to setting the political stage which will bring about the 2nd coming of Christ. This brand of Christianity is called Christian Dominionism and Christian Zionism. It has without question become the most dangerous cult on the planet simply because it has been allowed to take over the Pentagon and the foreign policy agenda of the American empire. As a result of this takeover millions of innocents have died in wars perpetuated abroad by American foreign policy that has a twisted theology at its center.
The Cult of Israel
Most people reading this will have a hard time believing that there is a Christian cult that controls the Pentagon and foreign policy of America. A cult that literally believes that the wars in the middle east are being orchestrated on behalf of God to lay the foundation for the 2nd coming of Christ, but it's true.
Historians fail to mention that modern Israel was founded by wealthy European elitist families, and only later was actually recognized as a state by the UN in 1948. Baron Edmond Rothschild is credited to be the father of Israel. Prior to WW II had helped migrate thousands of European Jews to Palestine in the later part of the 19th century. In 1948, through the UN Israel was made an official state on behalf of those wealthy Zionists. It was not as we are told because of Hitler and the holocaust. In fact according to historian Edwin Black, who wrote the book entitled the Transfer Agreement Hitler aided these wealthy Zionist families by striking the deal called the Transfer Agreement. This agreement allowed for German Jews to leave Germany and set up refuge in Palestine for close to one hundred thousand Jews in 1933 as shown in this news clip recording the event and the book the Transfer Agreement.

This agreement was the genesis of the state of Israel, but the New World Order architects knew that this baby Israel would need a guardian to protect the fledgling state considering that Israel would draw the ire of the surrounding Muslim nations. This is why there was a concerted effort to dramatically change the theological landscape in Christian America in the upcoming years. If Israel was to remain a nation then it would need the backing of the American military, and to gain the backing of the American military you needed to have the American people. They simply had to win the hearts of the American citizens to the extent they would be okay protecting Israel as if protecting America itself. This was accomplished in a variety of ways.
One thing that was instrumental in this endeavor was the printing of the Scofield Reference Bible. It was this Bible that was first used by the early Zionist political movement to help change the theology of American Christians. It was released around WW I and was seeded into every seminary in America by WW II. The dispensationalist doctrine found in its referenced footnotes has provided a framework for total cult like support of the modern state of Israel like nothing else could. In a must read article author Chuck E. Carlson of whtt.org writes about how Zionist co-opted Christians in America to assure support for the UN created state of Israel in the decades to come, he writes,
"World Zionist leaders initiated a program to change America and its religious orientation. One of the tools used to accomplish this goal was an obscure and malleable Civil War veteran named Cyrus I. Schofield. A much larger tool was a venerable, world respected European book publisher--The Oxford University Press.
The scheme was to alter the Christian view of Zionism by creating and promoting a pro-Zionist subculture within Christianity. Scofield's role was to re-write the King James Version of the Bible by inserting Zionist-friendly notes in the margins, between verses and chapters, and on the bottoms of the pages. The Oxford University Press used Scofield, a pastor by then, as the Editor, probably because it needed such as man for a front. The revised bible was called the Scofield Reference Bible, and with limitless advertising and promotion, it became a best-selling "bible" in America and has remained so for 90 years.
The Scofield Reference Bible was not to be just another translation, subverting minor passages a little at a time. No, Scofield produced a revolutionary book that radically changed the context of the King James Version. It was designed to create a subculture around a new worship icon, the modern State of Israel, a state that did not yet exist, but which was already on the drawing boards of the committed, well-funded authors of World Zionism." (Rense)
The influence this cult has had on the body of Christian believers has become so radical, and so entrenched in the churches here in America that Ted Cruz and family can state publicly that he is anointed to be president and nobody bats an eye. That is exactly how upside down and backwards this brand of Christian doctrine has allowed us to become in our thinking in this country.
Enter the Christian Mafia
Though the Scofield Bible was utilized to take over the churches it didn't stop there, this cult went on to network its way into the furthest reaches of the American government and take over the Pentagon through what is known by insiders as the Christian Mafia. The Christian Mafia is more formally known as the Fellowship, and is the group that heads up the Washington D.C. Prayer Breakfast, where sitting presidents go to pay homage annually to this group on the first Thursday in February. For a history on how this group took power in the Pentagon read NSA Whistleblower and author Wayne Madsen's article entitled EXPOSÉ: THE “CHRISTIAN” MAFIA.
In this MUST READ article he writes about the history of the Fellowship from its formation to its influence and heavy connections to Bush era neo-conservatism movement. One stand out section talks about the top military brass who are affiliated with the secretive group known as the Fellowship, entrenched military leaders who also have been connected to war crimes and cover-ups going back decades.
"Eventually, the Fellowship would count some of the military’s top leaders among its members. They include former Joint Chiefs Chairman General David Jones, current Joint Chiefs chairman General Richard Myers, former Marine Corps Commandant and current NATO commander General James L. Jones, Iran-contra figure Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North, and, perhaps even more controversial than North, Army Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin, the military head of Defense Secretary Rumsfeld’s intelligence branch. In 2003, Boykin, in a speech to the First Baptist Church in Daytona Beach, Florida, referred to the United States as a “Christian nation” and, that in reference to a Somali warlord, he stated, “ I knew that my God was bigger than his. I knew that my God was a real God and his was an idol.” The reverberations of Boykin’s comments were felt around the world. But his allies and Fellowship compatriots, Rumsfeld, Myers, Kansas Representative Todd Tiahrt, and most important, George W. Bush, refused to condemn him. Calls for Boykin’s reassignment when unheeded. Soon afterwards, Boykin’s Pentagon intelligence group was discovered to have been involved with the torture and sexual molestation of prisoners in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The sexual molestation of prisoners included male and female teens being held in Iraq. Also of note is the current head executive director of the OCF. He is retired Lt. Gen. Bruce Fister, the former head of the U.S. Air Force Special Operations Command."
A Most Dangerous Cult
The connections these groups have to the wealthy Christians, the political elite both in Israel and in America, and the military cannot be underestimated or overlooked. The Christian ministries used to network, recruit and indoctrinate men and woman into the political spires of our country is both secretive and highly influential. For Ted Cruz to be pandering to this base is to be pandering to the real power behind the throne. We have to realize Obama has never had control of the Pentagon, he was allowed to push personal social agendas like gay marriage and Obamacare but has never been allowed to change the direction of American foreign policy. The Pentagon is controlled by the Israeli/American Christian power base and this is a direct result of this highly dangerous religious cult that has swept through our American churches over the course of 100 years.
The Christian Zionist/Dominionists have taken over the military and political structures of our country, they are rabidly pro-Israel to the point of compromise, they perpetuate wars that in their view are instrumental in fulfilling Biblical prophecy, and they see themselves as working alongside of God to bring about the 2nd coming of Christ. Part of that goal is to re-establish the boundaries of ancient Israel, build the 3rd temple, and bring about the final battle with Russia. The saber rattling and posturing continually with in the political establishment has more to do with the crazy cult like zeal for Israel and end times prophecy than it does with politics.
Take Michelle Bachman's recent comments as evidence of this fact, someone who has ardently voiced her support of Israel throughout her career as a politician,
"Radio host Jan Markell later mentioned that Bachmann had told her that “Barack Obama is pitching for global government” — a quote that Bachmann didn’t dispute during the interview and, in fact, defended, citing speculation that Obama will seek to be secretary general of the United Nations.
In the end, Bachmann encouraged Christians to pay attention to eschatological scriptures, and to tell others about the biblical end times.
“We know that there is more prophecy of Jesus’ second coming even than there was in the first,” she said. “We also should be encouraged and empowered as believers in Jesus Christ — now more than ever — with the Bible in one hand, the newspaper in another, to say to our neighbors and co-workers and people at church, this is about the Lord speaking to the world that, ‘I am coming soon.’” (The Blaze)
Those that subscribe to the false teachings and doctrines surrounding Israel and currently have power cannot be trusted to operate in a sane and rational manner. The fact that there are those in positions of the highest authority that truly believe that what they are doing is fulfilling Biblical prophecy and have access to nuclear arsenals alongside the most powerful military force on the planet should be extremely disconcerting to the average American.
The Christian power elite in the media and politics that subscribe to these doctrines are constantly attacking Islam and pointing out the violence inherent in their faith, yet they fail to see the violence perpetuated by the American military abroad based on their own faith. The fact is by a 2013 count over 1/2 million have died in wars abroad since 9/11, and furthermore these wars are dragging the world into WW III. Nothing good will come out of a Ted Cruz presidency especially the way he is courting the war mongering evangelical movement on the basis that his family believes him to be the anointed one.
As a result of these above facts, there is no question that the Neo-Con/pro-Zionist strain of American exceptionalism is the most dangerous cult in the world. They are blood thirsty, religious zealots that are so caught up in end time fervor they ignore some of the most basic calls towards peace in the Bible by Jesus himself, such as Matthew 5:9 that says " Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God." According to Jesus, Ted Cruz and those like him cannot possibly be the children of God because they seek to bring about the Kingdom through violence and force as they wield the military of the American Empire on behalf of modern Israel.
