It was a popular book and now it's going to the big screen. The Trump Prophecy—the story of a firefighter who says God told him Donald Trump would become president years before he even announced he would run—is now a movie, but it hasn't come without controversy.
The movie is the story of former Florida firefighter Mark Taylor, co-author of The Trump Prophecies, who says he received a special message from God in 2011 that businessman Donald Trump was headed for the White House.
Producer Rick Eldridge of Reelworks Studios based in Charlotte, North Carolina, says he wasn't sure he wanted to do this film. "I knew it was going to be controversial, I knew it was not going to be an easy movie to make; I knew that people would respond like they responded, but I also knew that we had a nation that really needed to hear some messages of God's intervention in our country," Eldridge said.
The movie relives the night Mark Taylor received what he calls "the commander in chief prophecy" (full text below).
"I didn't know a lot about Donald Trump, I just knew that he was a very powerful businessman, built this empire, and he was toying with the idea of running for president at the time; most people thought it was a joke so I'm listening to him on an interview and all of the sudden I hear the voice of the Lord say, 'You're hearing the voice of a president,'" Taylor recalled.
Taylor says he went into his office, got out a pen and paper, and started to write what he says the Holy Spirit told him.
"He was saying basically that America was going to prosper like never before; Israel and America, the ties between the two countries would be stronger than ever before; the dollar would be the strongest it's ever been; it was very detailed as far as what God was showing me," Taylor said.
