Yes

but there are groups actively seeking out Coptic and Assyrian Christians I happen to know a few ans they have has to scatter across the globe and rebuild their culture fleeing persecution
I should have specified Western, First World Christians. I won’t deny that many in the Middle East and Africa have suffered greatly. Worth noting that a lot of the conflicts that have caused this persecution have been supported by the Christian Right.

I've lately been thinking that maybe, religious leaders have been asked to perpetuate this image of Trump.(think: Jim Bakker)

I think the message of the billboard would still have resonated without his face on it.
To what end? I agree though, I could give probably a hundred examples of religious figures going back at least two years indicating that Trump is God’s chosen one. He has been compared to Old Testament Kings, and a significant portion of his supporters believe he will start the apocalypse.

That’s a good question. The way I rationalized it, is that it’s one giant, elaborate game by the PTB. To me, this further lends weight to the argument that the embassy move was meant to take place at the moment that it did (in 2018, on Israel’s 70th anniversary), despite some people believing that previous presidents just sat on their hands, merely reluctant.

The embassy move was a big deal, most especially to the evangelical crowd because of the eschatological undertones. So, naturally the person (Trump, in this case) who would make that a reality has to be portrayed as some sort of ‘anointed of God’. This, despite the fact that Trump doesn’t come across as a religious person and I’ve only seen one incidence of him on the campaign trail, in church wielding a bible. Or the fact that his speech at AIPAC, where he made that promise, was written by pretty much AIPAC.**

Some of the policies in regard to the Israel-Palestine question are, simply put, unpalatable so the average televangelist is called upon to sell the policy from the pulpit, to make it more palatable. Some of those mega pastors are spooks,^^ and the nexus of politics, intelligence and religion is real and goes back decades. In a previous post, I said that the embassy move was as much political as it was religious. And I don’t think its by accident that he’s being portrayed that way. I just think that some of his future policies for the MiddleEast demand that a significant portion of the population be conditioned to view him as some sort of Messiah and your average televangelist is on hand and is well suited to do the conditioning.

**The speeches of speakers at AIPAC are said to be written by "AIPAC"and it wasn't any different with Trump's. (Religion and Politics collide)

Edit: A while back, you posted a Patheos link and i followed it and found this in another article, that sure made me chuckle:

"You claimed Barack Obama’s election was the result of evil forces, but the minute Trump was sworn into office you started quoting verses about how “God picks a nation’s kings and queens.”

When the world comes against Israel God is going to battle for Israel.
God does not go to battle. God is the commander and creator of all. Life, death, peace, war, prosperity, suffering......... these are all merely tools at the disposal of God almighty. No one and no thing can stand against God. God does not go into battle and there is nothing that can ultimately challenge God. You are bordering on blasphemy here.

There is a group of religious zealots with massive power making biblical scale moves to bring about the end days

Why else would Trump have made Jeruselum the capital of Isreal?
So you feel that these people are doing this out of their own, secular desires and NOT to actually bring about the end days?

The end of days does not get to happen till God says so. I think there are foolish people of all faiths who might try to push events in a direction that their particular beliefs lead them to.

God is sovereign, nothing will happen to this world without His consent.

Have you heard about the Commander of the Host of the Lord ?

That is Jesus Christ at the helm of His angelic army.

Tremble.

^ from this summer but this is the real power in DC and Jeff lays out pretty clear here.

From the article

“The Family fits into a different point of view, called postmillenialism. And this is this idea that Christ isn’t coming back until we establish a world Christian order for a thousand years. The Family uses it to pursue what they describe as the long-term goal of 200 world leaders, united quietly through the Family and their devotion to Jesus as the Family understands him.”
