Pompeo’s Embrace of the Rapture
July 29, 2020 (EIRNS)—Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s messianic speech at the Nixon Library on July 23 calling for an end of engagement with China and a mobilization of forces to crush China’s rise, in words that made clear he included war if necessary, brought to mind his embrace of the lunatic fringe belief in the Rapture.
The Rapture is a belief that in the “end times,” all true believers will be swept into Heaven as the world is destroyed. The so-called Christian Zionists associate this with the defense of Israel against infidels which leads to some form of Armageddon.
On June 28, 2015, while serving as a congressman from Kansas, Pompeo spoke at a “God and Country Rally” at Summit Church in Wichita. A Pastor Fox had spoken before him on the Rapture. At the end of his speech, Pompeo said: “We will continue to fight these battles. It is a never-ending struggle. Until that moment Pastor Fox spoke about, until the Rapture, be part of it, be in the fight. Ask for forgiveness, seek His wisdom, and heed your pastor’s call to actions, and great things will be bestowed upon our nation and our world.”
