President Donald Trump led a United Nations event promoting religious freedom on Monday, reminding world leaders that all rights came from God.
President Trump today had the attention of nearly all the leaders of the free world, and he had a message for each and every one of them. In a stunning rebuke, President Trump reminded his listeners, many of them leaders on nations that persecute Christians, that human rights ‘come from God’ and as such cannot be taken away. Trump went on to say protecting religious freedom was one of his highest priorities. What an incredible polar opposite from the previous president’s constant promotion of Islam and Sharia Law.
“Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.” Zephaniah 3:8 (KJV)
The fact that the United Nations exists, as the end times gathering of all the nations of the world, leaps off the pages of Bible prophecy where God say that His desire is to ‘gather the nations’ and to ‘assemble the kingdoms’, so that He may judge them for their rejection of Him. Think about that the next time you read any story about the UN. They exist as a unified body because God says in the last days all the nations of the world will be ‘gathered together’. Yet another end times prophecy in the ‘completed’ column.
Donald Trump at the United Nations: Human Rights Come from God, Not Government
FROM BREITBART NEWS: “The United States is founded on the principle that our rights do not come from government they come from God,” he said. “This immortal truth is proclaimed in our Declaration of Independence and enshrined in the first amendment to our Constitution’s Bill of Rights.”

Trump noted that 80 percent of the world’s population live in countries where religious freedom is in danger or outright banned, and called for the world to end religious persecution and release prisoners held for professing their belief.
“As president, protecting religious freedom is one of my highest priorities and always has been,” Trump said.
The president noted sadly that an estimated 11 Christians are killed every day around the world for following their faith.
“Our Founders understood that no right is more fundamental to a peaceful, prosperous, and virtuous society than the right to follow one’s religious convictions,” he said.
Trump vowed that the United States would always stand for religious freedom, and urged all governments to do the same.
“WE ASK THE GOVERNMENTS OF THE WORLD TO HONOR THE ETERNAL RIGHT OF EVERY PERSON TO FOLLOW THEIR CONSCIENCE, LIVE BY THEIR FAITH, AND GIVE GLORY TO GOD,” HE SAID.
Trump was introduced at the event by Vice President Mike Pence, who thanked the president for being the first United States president to lead an event on the United Nations on religious freedom.
