Lance Wallnau, a Christian motivation speaker, claimed that God had anointed Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for the U.S. government in a video (below) that Wallnau uploaded on his Facebook page on Oct. 27.

The video was addressed to Michael Cohen, Trump's attorney, and was made with a crowd of Wallnau's followers in North Carolina, notes ChristianNews.net.

"I am here with a group of people who are here praying for encouraging Mr. Donald Trump," stated Wallnau, a strong advocate of Seven Mountains Dominionism.

This type of theology teaches that Christians should control seven areas (mountains) of society, one being government.

After Wallnau's audience cheered, he added, "Because God has given this man an anointing for the mantle of government in the United States and he will prosper."

On his Facebook page, Wallnau claimed that the Bible verse Isaiah 45:1, written to the Israelites thousands of years ago, applied to present-day America and that Trump "is the only Cyrus I see fulfilling Isaiah 45 for the 45th President."
