Trumps went on spiritual warfare offensive against demonic forces, says pastor
When Solomon had finished praying, the fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices, and the glory of the Lord filled the house.
2 The priests could not enter the house of the Lord, because the glory of the Lord had filled the Lord’s house.
3 And when all the people of Israel saw how the fire came down and the glory of the Lord upon the house, they bowed with their faces upon the pavement and worshiped and praised the Lord, saying, For He is good, for His mercy and loving-kindness endure forever.
4 Then the king and all the people offered sacrifices before the Lord.
5 King Solomon offered a sacrifice of 22,000 oxen and 120,000 sheep. So the king and all the people dedicated God’s house.
6 The priests stood at their posts, and the Levites also, with instruments of music to the Lord, which King David had made to praise and give thanks to the Lord—for His mercy and loving-kindness endure forever—whenever David praised through their ministry; the priests blew trumpets before them, and all Israel stood.
7 Moreover, Solomon consecrated the middle of the court that was before the house of the Lord, for there he offered burnt offerings and the fat of the peace offerings, because the bronze altar which [he] had made was not sufficient to receive the burnt offerings, the cereal offerings, and the fat.
8 At that time Solomon held the feast for seven days, and all Israel with him, a very great assembly, from the entrance of Hamath to the Brook of Egypt.
9 The eighth day they made a solemn assembly, for they had kept the dedication of the altar and the feast, each for seven days.
10 And on the twenty-third day of the seventh month he sent the people away to their homes, glad and merry in heart for the goodness that the Lord had shown to David, to Solomon, and to Israel His people.
11 Thus Solomon finished the Lord’s house and the king’s house; all that [he] had planned to do in the Lord’s house and his own house he accomplished successfully.
12 And the Lord appeared to Solomon by night and said to him: I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice.
13 If I shut up heaven so no rain falls, or if I command locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people,
14 If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.
15 Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer offered in this place.
16 For I have chosen and sanctified (set apart for holy use) this house, that My Name may be here forever, and My eyes and My heart will be here perpetually.
17 As for you [Solomon], if you will walk before me as David your father walked, and do all I have commanded you, and observe My statutes and My ordinances,
18 Then I will establish the throne of your kingdom, as I covenanted with David your father, saying, There shall not fail you a man to be ruler in Israel.
19 But if you [people] turn away and forsake My statutes and My commandments which I have set before you and go and serve other gods and worship them,
20 Then will I pluck [Israel] up by the roots out of My land which I have given [them]; and this house which I have hallowed for My Name will I cast out of My sight, and will make it to be a proverb and a byword among all nations.
21 And this house, which was so high, shall be an astonishment to everyone passing it, and they will say, Why has the Lord done thus to this land and to this house?
22 Then men will say, Because they forsook the Lord, the God of their fathers, Who brought them out of Egypt, and they laid hold of other gods and worshiped and served them; therefore has He brought all this evil upon them.

“At least he is humble enough and recognizing that he needs God enough that he keeps bringing them in for the prayer. And I’ve got to say this, it might have started with the First Lady.”
Begley continued: “The First Lady – in that five hours when the Obamas and the Trumps went down to the Capitol and Trump was being sworn in as the 45th president of the United States – Melania Trump said to her husband, ‘I’m not going to go into that White House unless it has been completely exorcised.’”
President Trump reportedly agreed.
“During that five hours when they were ripping out carpets and changing drapes, there were people in there packing up every idol. The only thing that was left, Sheila, was one cross on one wall. They cleansed the White House. They had people in there anointing it with oil and praying everywhere.”
Begley added that previous administrations had left demonic symbols at the estate, and elaborated on the Clinton’s fascination with Haiti and voodoo:
“[A]pparently during the eight years when Obama was there, and maybe even some of the presidents before him, there were all kinds of idol gods and images and all kinds of artifacts in there that were demonic, even some of the stuff from the Clinton era because they were really tied in with the Haitians.”
“I can tell you, you can read the “Serpent and the Rainbow” story and find out just how much Haitian witch-doctor influence was on Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton’s lives,” Begley added. “They constantly went back there. They spent their honeymoon with a witch doctor. Who does that?”
The Washington Post reported that in 1975 the Clintons held their honey moon in Haiti.
“They toured the old hotel where the writer Ernest Hemingway once stayed and visited a voodoo high priest dressed in all white,” The Post reported, adding the Clintons were a “Haiti-obsessed family.”
The former President’s book, My Life, also contained passages claiming the Clintons ”watched the arrival [of] the spirit, people putting burning torch over their body, walking on hot coals without being burned while other grabbing live chicken and biting their head off,” according to the Haiti Observer.
In her book, What Happened, Clinton also comments that her frustration made her want to craft voodoo dolls of members of the press and Congress “and stick them full of pins.”
“Melania said, ‘You’ve got to get all of that out of there and send in some preachers and priests to go in and cleanse the White House or I will not spend one night in it.’”
Pastor Begley says while the Trump’s acts may seem overboard, they are necessary in the arena of spiritual warfare.
“This was a major spiritual – it might sound like overdoing it, a little excessive,” he said, “but you’ve got to take the seat of authority when you go into spiritual warfare. You start with the spiritual authority and then it goes on from there out. I think that that might have been where this whole thing began, in a mighty way of exorcising the demons.”
According to CNS News, Pastor Begley based his accounts on sources inside the White House who declined to be named.
President Trump delivered remarks at the 66th annual National Prayer Breakfast Thursday where he affirmed, “Our rights are not given to us by man; our rights come from our Creator.”
