Ted Cruz’s Messianic Message
By Peggy Ryan, staff writer
By all rights the 2016 Presidential primaries should
be over.There is after all only one candidate still standing
who can make the required 1237 delegates and that is Donald Trump.Yet Ted Cruz refuses to go away.
There’s a youtube video floating around that shows an
18-year old Cruz talking about his goals.Cruz said he wanted to “take over the world, world domination… you know, rule
everything, rich, powerful that sort of stuff.”On its face this looks like teenage ramblings but with Cruz, not so much.
Ted’s father, Rafael Cruz, preaches a neo-charismatic movement, the “Seven Mountain Dominion” (7MD).Dominionists believe evangelical Christians
who are anointed as “kings” will be sent to take control of all sectors of
society, an agenda commonly referred to as the “Seven Mountains” mandate.Pretty much ‘world domination.’And Rafael’s not shy about telling people who he believes
should take the reins.
During a 2012 sermon at New Beginnings Church in
Bedford, Texas, Rafael Cruz preached that his son’s political campaign is a
direct fulfillment of Biblical prophecy.Cruz told the congregation that God would
anoint Christian “kings” to preside over an “end-time transfer of wealth” from the wicked to the
Others passionately attest to Ted’s calling.Larry Huch, the pastor of New Beginnings,
claimed Cruz’s recent election to the U.S. Senate was a sign that Ted is indeed
one of these kings.Heidi Cruz got a
personal message from God that Ted’s the guy.Glenn Beck, Ted’s closest political ally, preached in
Utah that Ted Cruz is “anointed for this time.” Glenn says nobody knows what
it is like to carry the ‘Moses-like burden’ that Cruz bears.Beck also preached that if voters align
themselves with the evil Trump, they’re "not listening to their God”.
So why is this important? After all, an individual’s
religion is a very personal thing, right? Well, no. Not when, as in the 2016 Presidential
election, Cruz is using
religion to morally bludgeon voters into supporting him.Cruz touts his Christianity as pure and above
scrutiny while he brands Donald Trump as morally and spiritually corrupt and
beyond redemption.Ted says outright that Christians cannot in good
conscience support Trump.
But Ted’s argument that Trump should be rejected for
his wayward past is not exactly Biblical.After all, God himself often
used imperfect men for His purpose.The
Apostle Paul started as one of Christianity's most zealous enemies.He approved the stoning of Stephen (Acts 7:58),
and was a merciless persecutor of the church.Yet he was hand-picked by Jesus Christ to become the
gospel's most ardent messenger.God used
the gifts He had given Paul, among them, a brilliant mind and a commanding
knowledge of philosophy and religion.Paul’s clear, understandable explanation of the gospel made his letters
to early churches the foundation of Christian theology.
And God used other flawed individuals to carry out His
will. Noah was a drunk, Jacob a liar, Samson a
womanizer, Rahab a prostitute, and David an adulterer and murderer.So Ted’s version of what is required by God
is not necessarily according to the Gospel.
So why does Cruz adamantly declare Trump unworthy to
serve if that’s not what God teaches?It’s because Ted’s religion isn’t exactly by the Book
as we know it.In the article Seven Mountains Dominionism: “Not the same brand,”Dr. Joel McDurmon writes that the most
concerning part of 7MD is their plan “to grab the reins of influence through
whatever means necessary, usurp the seats of political power and impose some tyrannical
society from the top down.”
This explains so much. It accounts for the cold
calculated theft of Dr.Carson’s votes in Iowa, the dirty tricks on Marco
Rubio saying he’d dropped out of the race then misquoting him with the Bible.It explains Cruz’s eager embrace of the very establishment he’d
labeled as cartel, of every enemy he’d bragged about opposing.
Ted Cruz is now warning Indiana voters. At a rally in
La Porte, Indiana, Cruz said "I believe that the men and women gathered
here and the goodness of the American people, that we will not give into evil but we will
remember who we are and we will stand for our values.”
Again with the blatant religion card, Cruz is telling
people who to judge and how to interpret God’s will.The dirty little secret is that Cruz, like Donald
Trump and even Hillary Clinton, is himself a mere mortal.The frightening part is that Ted apparently doesn’t
Yet the media ignores Cruz’s Dominionist link as it
continues to pimp a contested convention 24/7 instead of exposing the Cruz quest
for power. It’s not like the press doesn’t know of Cruz’s connection to the
Seven Mountain Dominion. It’s spoken of in a hundred places on the Internet.Hell, Rafael and Glenn Beck are out there preaching it
Unfortunately, it’s not just the mainstream media
missing this story.Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin are all-in for Cruz.They’re pushing the “one true conservative” crap as if
even that piece is true and ignoring the Cruz cult.And please, Rush, Mark, don’t try to tell us Ted’s not
involved in this Dominionist movement.Below is an excerpt from the Chris Roycroft-Davis article “Ted Cruz-the man who believes God wants him to be president:"
After kneeling in prayer for two hours at a Baptist
church in Texas, Cruz’s family wept as his wife Heidi said she had received a
message from above that instructed Cruz to run for the White House.According to Cruz’s father, pastor Rafael,
the kneeling Ted “looked up and
said: ‘Lord, here am I, use me.I
surrender to you, whatever you want.’”
Note that this was family prayer and that Ted’s
father, Rafael, an unabashed Dominionist was not just present but praying
I’m not writing this to try and stop Ted Cruz; he’s already
toast.But Cruz and his wealth-centered mission got too close
this time.We as voters can no longer depend on media to inform
us, we have to be pro-active.
A candidate who threatens the advent of Hell and
brimstone for all who disagree with his message has raised a red flag which Americans
must not ignore. Ted Cruz has done just that. That’s the time to listen
carefully to the candidate’s message.
In 2016 it came down to two candidates in the end. One, Donald Trump, is campaigning on equal trade, border security, a strong
military, and protected 2nd Amendment rights, among other issues.
The other candidate, Ted Cruz, now also campaigns on
those issue but came late to the party.Originally, Ted’s campaign was all about the true
conservative, the Constitutional candidate and the Christian stalwart.As his conservative image dissolved, a campaign kicked
into high gear in which Cruz sells himself as one who shares Christian core
But unless you wish to elect a monarch who will judge
the wicked and confiscate their wealth, you’re not in sync with the Seven
Mountain Dominion movement. In fact, you are in conflict with their beliefs.
When you listen to Ted in the future or any candidate
who wants to insert God as a wedge issue, take the time to research that
candidate before you pull that lever in the voting booth.Do you want to elect a president or ordain a king?
