The Wolves Who Hide In Sheep’s Clothing Flocking To Republicans

Matthew 7:15 in the New Testament warns all to “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
The “ravening wolves” of today are taking front and center in the politics of the far right and the most radical, Evangelical Christians, who believe that trump was sent from God and that the 2020 election was rigged by the pedophile Democrats.
Many of the pro-trump prophets have been performing at rallies for Doug Mastriano, the far, far right election denier, Christian nationalist and QAnon believer who is running for Pennsylvania governor.
The wolves were out in full force at the Oct. 21 “ReAwakenAmerica” tour to support Mastriano and other equally crazed Republican candidates, which drew thousands of MAGA supporters to the Spooky Nook Sports center in Manheim, Pa. Many speakers were involved with the New Apostolic Reformation, a movement that blames demons for the world’s problems and stresses “spiritual warfare.” They rail against the threats of transgender children, the COVID-19 vaccine, satanic cults murdering unborn babies, and any media source that does not actively promote their crusade.
One speaker was MyPillow founder Mike Lindell, election denier supreme, trump lackey and evangelical Christian, who wears his cross around his neck for all to see while peddling a new line of discount slippers in a Fox television commercial.
They also were in full bloom at Mastriano’s March 15 campaign event , where a guest speaker “prophet” told the crowd that political executions are coming, that President Biden “is no longer alive” and that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., drinks “children’s blood.” Mastriano has posted a photo of himself with the alleged prophet and was with her at the Patriots Arise conference.
That “prophet” was Julie Green of Iowa, leader of Julie Green Ministries, which has been banned from You Tube but is still regularly posted on the right wing sites, Rumble and Telegram and the trump site, Truth Social. Green says that God has chosen trump to be his “Moses” to “deliver the people out of the hands of the (modern-day) pharaohs.” God, says Green, will kill those who stole the 2020 election, among other alleged misdeeds.
On Feb. 28, she revealed her prophesy to Mastriano, saying, “I have you here for such a time as this, saith the Lord. I know it seemed like I had forsaken you, all your hard work, and all the time you put forth to get to the truth in election integrity. You know the truth, and you have seen so much evidence of what really happened. It is now time to move forward with the plans you have been given. Yes, Doug, I am here with you. I will not forsake you. The time has come for their great fall and for the great steal to be overturned.”
On Feb. 17, Green said that Pelosi’s “days are coming to an end, and she will not last until the 2022 midterm elections. She will be visited by the angel of death for her crimes against my nation. And the blood is dripping from her hands. She loves to drink the little children’s blood. By drinking this blood, they believe they will receive a longer life. Yes, a true witch she really is.” Green also has claimed that government elites have been doing “human sacrifices” so they can advance “control over this world.”
Green had choice prophesies for, among others, Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kent., Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, and former President Barack Obama, who are all “evil to your core” and “will all pay with your lives but not before your judgments, and you will lose everything you hold dear to you.”
Another speaker was evangelist, J.C. Hall, who with his wife, markets products through a group called, “God, Guns & Liberty,” which aims “to equip patriots like you to broadcast truth wherever you go.” The organization noted on its website that the “Democratic/Communist Party USA has appointed a 77-year old dementia-addled white collar criminal, Joe Biden, to pick up where Hussein Obama left off. Was there a plot all along to bring down America and steal its sovereignty and bring us to the Great Reset NWO (New World Order)? Absolutely!”
Hall is married to KrisAnne Hall an anti-government lawyer and activist in Florida who runs a business called “Constitutional Education and Consulting” which preaches to militias, anti-government groups, church groups, lawmakers and law enforcement that U.S. citizens do not need to comply with the government, in violation of the Supremacy Clause which requires states to follow federal dictates.

“The Federal government is just as much of a foreign power as France or Texas within your state,” KrisAnne Hall intoned in her 2021 movie “Noncompliant.”
The Southern Poverty Law Center said that KrisAnne Hall’s lectures have drawn anti-government and hate groups, including the Oath Keepers, which includes some members who were arrested in connection with the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection by trump supporters at the U.S. Capitol.
She also founded the non-profit, Liberty First Legal, which “provides free legal assistance to Bible-believing churches, Christians and patriots who find the practice of their religious faith or civil liberties being threatened by governmental regulation, intrusion, or prohibition in one form or another.”
Lance Wallnau, another counterfeit Christian, spoke at a Mastriano rally in Harrisburg, Pa. Before that, Wallnau was at a rally in Atlanta, Ga., where he prayed for Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene R-Ga., related in spirit but not in name to Julie Green. In September, Wallnau offered his prophetic endorsements at a conference outside Colorado Springs with Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo, another rabid election denier and Christian Nationalist.
According to a report, Wallnau, a former corporate marketer, began his preaching in 2015, when he began to share the word of God that donald trump was “anointed.” In 2015, he produced a video, “Prophetic Word on Donald Trump,” which was seen by 4 million people.
The report noted that 2 million people tune into platforms on Rumble, Facebook and Audible to see his podcast, “The Lance Wallnau Show,” where he shares his “prophecies” along with advice on digital currencies.
Wallnau pointed out the biggest problem is those Christians who do not accept that God anointed trump. Wallnau promised to “expose” or divulge “the truth” including his belief that “something strange going on here” regarding last month’s attack on Paul Pelosi, husband of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.
