This is a good article ["Firestorm erupts over Trump's 'Bible connection'"]. My thoughts and what I'd like to say to the scoffers:
How dare you question what God would say to His people and what method He chooses to use. Are you so great that you can discern what is happening? God will use whatever He wants to. In the Bible, He used a donkey. He is in control. Are you prepared to stand before God and call Him a fool or a liar?
