CBN News spoke with author, speaker, and political strategist Dr. Lance Wallnau about why President Donald Trump is a 'wrecking ball.' Watch the video above.
In the months leading up to the 2016 presidential election, internationally recognized speaker and author Lance Wallnau was one of several evangelical Christian leaders who believed against all odds that Donald Trump would be the 45th president of the United States.
Wallnau says God revealed to him that candidate Trump was like the Persian King Cyrus cited in the Bible. Cyrus decreed that the Jews living in captivity in ancient Babylon could return to Israel and rebuild their temple.
Wallnau expounds on that theme in his best-selling book, God's Chaos Candidate: Donald J. Trump and the American Unraveling,
The evangelical Christian leader spoke with CBN News about the book.
"America has been unraveling for two decades and Christians are probably the people that are the most sensitive to it," Wallnau says. "What Trump represents is something like a block in the door that was closing."
"I really believe that the mercy of God intervened in this last election cycle and gave us an individual who has the willpower and the tenacity to be able to do a reset," he says.

Wallnau says God spoke to him specifically about the president.
"I heard the Lord say, 'Donald Trump is a wrecking ball to the spirit of political correctness,'" Wallnau says.
"After I met him I heard the Lord say, 'Isaiah 45 will be the 45th president,'" he explains. "I go check it out; Isaiah 45 is Cyrus."
"Isaiah says a hundred years before this guy was born, 'I will do this for Israel's sake, though he knows me not,' which means that Trump doesn't have the experience with God that the evangelical typically would call, 'knowing God,'" Wallnau continues.
"But he's got a fear of God," he tells CBN News. "He's anointed of God. Isaiah 45 says, 'for the sake of Israel,' which would be the people of God, and so it has to do with Israel; it has to do with Christians."
Wallnau says he believes Trump is a "secular reformer" who is going to establish an environment where Christians can bring about a "spiritual reformation."
Interestingly, Wallnau points out that this year marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation led by Martin Luther.
"I think this is the time when God is going to do something that is going to create a space for a reformational surge of Christian activity in America that's going to retake institutional high places and occupy places that we virtually surrendered to secular culture," Wallnau tells CBN News.
