President Donald Trump shocked the entire world with an Easter message so poignant and powerful, and so completely different from anything uttered by President Barack Obama during his eight years in power, that it had grabbed the attention of friend and rivals alike.
In the address delivered Friday, Trump, of course, spoke about the Christian Easter holiday and acknowledged God’s power throughout history.
But he also used biblical examples to back up his statements, first choosing to talk about the Jewish feast of Passover as a celebration of God’s deliverance of the Israelites in the Book of Exodus then leading up to the challenges America and the world face in our own day.
It’s well worth listening to:
“Down through the centuries, the Jewish people have lived through one persecution after another – and yet, they persevered and thrived and uplifted the world beyond measure,” the president said. ” And now, the state of Israel stands as a monument to their faith and endurance.”
