Ted Cruz’s Father Preaches That His Son Is An “Anointed King” Who Will Bring The “End Time Transfer Of Wealth”

cruzAre you ready to hand all of society’s money over to the Christian leaders whom the heavens have anointed to be “God’s bankers”? More on the fascinating Christian Dominionist theology of pastor Rafael Cruz, father of leading Tea Party politician Ted, via Alternet:

In a sermon last year at an Irving, Texas, megachurch that helped elect Ted Cruz to the U.S. Senate, Cruz’ father Rafael Cruz indicated that his son was among the evangelical Christians who are anointed as “kings” to take control of all sectors of society, an agenda commonly referred to as the “Seven Mountains” mandate, and “bring the spoils of war to the priests”, thus helping to bring about a prophesied “great transfer of wealth”, from the “wicked” to righteous gentile believers.

Cruz spoke of “Kings who are anointed to go to war, win the war, and bring the spoils of war to the priests.” Discussion of the now-notorious speech by Rafael Cruz has missed the fact that Ted Cruz was subsequently blessed and anointed by prominent dominionist pastors, in effect as a “king” in the political/governmental sphere, at a special blessing ceremony at the Marriott Hotel in Des Moines, Iowa, at a July 19th-20th 2013 rally designed to draw pastors into politics.

In his August 26th, 2012 guest sermon at Larry Huch’s Irving, TX megachurch, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz’ father Rafael Cruz explained,

“The pastor [Huch] referred to Proverbs 13:22, a little while ago, which says that the wealth of the wicked is stored for the righteous. And it is through the kings, anointed to take dominion, that that transfer of wealth is going to occur. God, even though he’s sovereign, even though he’s omnipotent, he doesn’t let it rain out of the sky – he’s going to use people to do it.”

Larry Huch spoke,

“I know that’s why God got Rafael’s son elected – Ted Cruz, the next Senator. But here’s the exciting thing – and that’s why I know it’s timely for him to teach this, and bring this anointing. This will begin what we call the “End Time Transfer of Wealth.”

“And that when these gentiles begin to receive this blessing, they will never go back financially through the valley again. God is looking at the church, and everyone in it, and deciding, in the next 3 and 1/2 years, who will be his bankers. And the ones that say, ‘Here am I, Lord, you can trust me’, we will become so blessed that we will usher in the coming of the Messiah.:

    Fuck that guy.

    • Liam_McGonagle

      Yes, it’s hard to believe that someone did, isn’t it?

      But at any rate, you know how this eventually plays out. ‘Treasure of the Sierra Madre’, ‘Lord of the Rings’ and whatnot . . . “There can be only one.”

      These jackals are going to rip themselves apart in scandal, recrimination and counter-recrimination over their own corrupt dealings with one another. And I’d bet it begins even before the nominations process is complete. These guys are stupid animals, so I don’t give any of them credit for enough self-restraint to hold out until 2016.

      • Juan

        Yes,”stupid animals” is a fitting description of these bastards. Unfortunateley, the US is a country filled to bursting with stupid animals.
        They make me very uneasy.

        • sveltesvengali

          Kinda’ like military men, according to Henry Kissinger. They may well be pawns to be used in foreign policy as well, though by which opaque collusion of powers I can’t even fathom to guess at.

      • Liam_McGonagle

        “There can be only one.”

        Say, that was ‘Highlander’, wasn’t it? D’oh! I think I meant to say:

        “One ring to rule them all.”

  • VaudeVillain

    If they believe that God wants to make the faithful into wealthy bankers, then they are DEFINITELY NOT Christians, because that is radically contrary to what Jesus said and did and taught.

    Seriously, have these people even read a Bible? This shit is just embarrassing.

  • HowardBrazee

    His religion is about making his kind rich at the expense of everybody else. Jesus Christ had very, very different values.

  • emperorreagan

    It’s Calvinism with the new-improved sacrament of booty bumping crystal meth.

  • Ted Heistman

    I’d keep an eye on these folks.I wouldn’t dismiss them so quickly.

  • Len

    What makes this freak and his freak spawn different than those that are “wicked”?

    • I_abide

      Because he prays before every creepy ass orgy night instead of just jumping right in.

  • Rusty Shackelford

    Gods and dictators always fall and psychopaths like this don’t last for long.

    • Andrew

      Yeah, but many have killed millions in the meantime.

  • Anarchy Pony

    Nothing more terrifying than a madman that thinks god is on their side.

  • Aipeed Teaitchse

    Too bad hell isn’t real because I’d love to see Rafael Cruz and the rest of these manipulative hypocrites trying to bring us back to the dark ages down there.

  • Andrew

    This is what the prosperity gospel crowd’s Jesus Antichrist eventually leads to.

  • echar

    With some luck, these people will be caught in very compromising situations. (e.g. Homosexual orgies, soliciting a hit man, money laundering, etc).

    • moremisinformation

      “Ted Cruz’s Father Preaches That His Son Is An ‘Anointed King’ Who Will Bring The “End Time Transfer Of Wealth”

      If that shit right there doesn’t compromise someone enough, then everything you mentioned could just be construed as ‘one crazy Friday night!’

      • echar

        To sane people it’s compromising, to dominionists it could be the sugar in the koolaid. I want his schmucks to see him fall, and along comes his and his sons status.

  • InfvoCuernos

    Say what you want, but this is truly biblical-if we look at “the End Times” the Anti-Christ and Satan’s minions rule the Earth for a thousand years, right? So I guess we skipped that rapture BS and are going for the lightning round.

    • Dingbert

      Pedantic note: The thousand-year reign is of Christ on Earth–a symbolic reign that we’re currently in. There is only a “Beast” and various antichrists mentioned–no “The Antichrist.” The Rapture is totally foreign to Scripture and Christian tradition–it was invented in the 1800s.
      That said, you’re right that those last two are standard fundie evangelist talking points. And I’m sure Cruz went to seminary, knows they’re wrong, and preaches them, anyway. I’m also pretty sure that’s what’s meant by an “antichrist.”

      • InfvoCuernos

        Ya, I knew the “Rapture” was made up (more so than the rest of tho?), that’s why I put the “BS” after it, but I thought there was 1000 years of Hell on Earth too? Oh well, not like any of that shit is for real anyway.. maybe I should go study my Revelations a little bit, or I could just go play some video games or masturbate.

        • Dingbert

          Yep, most of the pop-culture “End Times” crap you hear is made up–even from the Christian perspective. The Early Church was for the most part amillienialist (Christ’s reign on earth is just symbolic) and partial preterist (most prophecies in Revelation were already fulfilled in the 1st century). I think the urge for earthly tribulation is to satisfy the desire to watch your enemies suffer. Not very Christian.
          Also, I recommend saving your Bible study for after masturbation, otherwise you’ll just kill the mood.

        • Juan

          Your time would be better spent playing video games and flogging the bishop.

  • DeepCough

    Yeah, the only prophecy these guys make me think of is the End Days.

  • John

    These are the same people who preach “The Constitution this and The Constitution that”…doesn’t the The Constitution say something about “Separation of Church and State”?

    • catholicenuff

      No where in the constitution are those words found. The constitution forbids religious tests for federal office and bars the establishment for a state religion.

      • cecilia

        “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

        First Amendment to the United States Constitution

      • cecilia

        “The First Amendment has erected a wall between church and state. That wall must be kept high and impregnable. We could not approve the slightest breach.” – Thomas Jefferson

        • Dingbert

          “Separation of church and state” is not in the Constitution. It comes from a quote by James Madison (the author).
          Just semantics, though.
          No establishment of religion + no religious tests =~= separation of church and state

      • jnana

        huh, Cecilia got you, eh? seems like you just believed what you wanted to believe, probably heard it from some one and just took it for truth. well, now you know. 1st Amendment is about the separation of church and state.

  • Cdb Spender

    It wont be much longer until people realize how wakado religon really is…

    As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense,
    founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of
    enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen; and, as
    the said States never entered into any war, or act of hostility against
    any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext
    arising from religious opinions, shall ever produce an interruption of
    the harmony existing between the two countries. – Treaty of Tripoli

  • oneironauticus

    So…we all agree…Ted Cruz is the Antichrist.

  • yeahyeahwhtever

    Rousas Rushdoony, though dead now, lives on in the intention to replace our democratic republic form of government into a theocracy. That’s the destination that Christian Evangelicals are being herded toward, though they are unaware of it.

  • BuzzCoastin

    delusions of grandeur easily overcome those

      “These people be dick heads.” Mark in apt. 2B.

    Now, we see where little Teddy gets his sense of logic and rationality.

  • The Psycholyst

    Right wing redistribution of wealth . LMFAO

  • stop2wonder

    “I know that’s why God got Rafael’s son elected…”

    So either God tampered with the election thus undermining everything our country stands for, or he made a couple million people vote for Cruz who otherwise wouldn’t hence undermining everything Christians say about God and free will. Which one is it?

  • jnana

    are they truly that deluded?
    or just plain evil?
    same as the ages old gnostic question about the demiurge. is he irrational and ignorant? or malicious? maybe a little of both.
    I imagine if jesus was around he would tell them the same thing he told the Pharisees. that they’re children of their father, the devil. in league with the demiurge/world ruler. their actions make that quite clear to anyone with a tiny bit of discernment

  • radii

    Kookoo kookoo kookoo … the loony bin left the doors open clearly

  • Frank Blunt

    didn’t Jesus teach his disciples via a parable that if you DON’T make enough money that you should be financially punished ??? Luke 19:11-26 , where the principle in jesus parable punished the man who earned the last income from his cash…

  • M.

    Damn, I was hoping for some grade A bible thumping.

    But what this well researched, hard hitting news source says is that apparently Rafael read a passage from the bible while performing his day job as a guest minister one Sunday, and has a son named Ted Cruz who was running for the senate back in 09.

    Wow! my mind …is like… blown.

  • defmbqwerty

    These people are dangerous. I’m concerned that they 1) somehow exist with that level of intelligence and 2) have a somewhat significant following in this year of 2013. Sad.

  • Figjam_US

    …these people are ideological zealots and harmful to our society – their beliefs are very much like the muslim zealots running a muck in the middle east except they do not use violence to achieve their means – yet…

    • moremisinformation

      Depends on how you define violence, perhaps.

  • Heyitswheeler

    This guy makes the rest of us “believers” and republicans/conservatives look horrible. Believe me people, not very many of us believe what this lunatic does. This guy is insane, completely goes against what Jesus taught. I don’t consider myself a Christian so to speak, i rarely attend church but i do pray and believe in a higher power, just not sure it’s who we think it is. I honestly believe all religions base their beliefs on their interpretations of the same “being”. All different countries believe in higher powers but back in the day none of us were connected by the internet, transportation, mail, etc etc etc so everyone interpreted this higher being in their own way. Now we wage war on other religions believing ours is more credible than the next.

  • cecilia

    There are many reasons to never vote for cruz but being a religious nut-job is a BIG one.

    OUT!

  • Eliza Creststeel

    And some folks thought Obama was the Anti-Christ. Declaring Rafael jr here as some kind of ‘anointed one’ is more blatant than anything I ever heard people say about Barack being special. Maybe Rafael is actually Damien.
