People Want To Know If ‘Trumpence’ Is In The Bible

Commentary By: Albert Mascheroni

They’re deflecting. They deflect & mock! Trumpence is esoteric & they knowingly did this to mock God. TRUMPETS IN REVELATION (Revelation 8:7) – Trumpence is Trumpets. They change their names for this very reason then deflect.

Bill Clinton used to be Bill Blythe but in numerolog, Clinton = 33. 33 references to a coming sadist or world leader, 1 of which is the Anti-Christ. This is homage to the devil & an act of rebellion against our Creator!

Commentary In Response to Article By: Paige Lavender

CLEVELAND ― During the Republican National Convention last week, Google searches increased for phrases containing the word “trumpence,” including, “what does trumpence mean?” But “trumpence” doesn’t mean anything bc it’s not actually a word. It sounds a lot like “tuppence” or “2 pence” ― a form of British money that might be recognizable to some thanks to a song in the film “Mary Poppins” ― but it’s nothing more than a combination of the last names of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump & his running mate, Mike Pence.

Merriam-Webster doesn’t define “trumpence,” but a spokesman for the dictionary publisher noted that there’s been an increase in the number of people turning to its website to search for the word “trumpery” throughout Trump’s presidential campaign.

There was 1 particularly curious thing that people asked Google about during convention week: “Is Trumpence in the Bible?” It’s highly unlikely that it is, according to Greg Carey, an author & professor of the New Testament at Lancaster Theological Seminary.

“Neither ‘Trumpence’ nor ‘Trumppence’ is in any English edition of the Bible I could search,” Carey wrote in an email to The Huffington Post. “Moreover, since the Bible was written in Greek & Hebrew, that makes the occurrence of such a term near-impossible.” It’s possible people might be wondering if the Bible prophesies Trump, Carey said, noting that “Bible prophecy speculation runs rampant in our country.”

Kristine Eggert, a pastor & co-founder of the group God Before Guns, said some people may be looking for the phrase in the Bible “for someone to tell them what to do.”

“It’s easier for people sometimes if they think that there’s something so specific that they need to live by that tenet rather than a progressive interpretation of the Bible,” Eggert told HuffPost while demonstrating in Cleveland on Thursday. “The Bible is a guide for us, it was a revealing of God in those times. But God continues to be revealed to us all the time & so something that was written by people in the 1st century or before Christ is not necessarily reflective of what our culture is now or what we ought to be talking about now.”

People who are looking for signs of Trump & Pence in the Bible may try to pull phrases out of the religious text w/out looking at the context, leading to a “warped view, ”said  Patty Jedlicka, an Akron resident who traveled to Cleveland w/the group Hope Is Here to talk to people during the RNC about Jesus.

“People pick out verses to suit their own philosophy & that’s wrong,” Jedlicka said.

Patty’s husband, George Jedlicka, had his own theory about why people might be searching the phrase.

“’Trumpence’ sounds kind of like an Old English word that might be in the King James version [of the Bible], that’s what they might be looking for,” he said.

Trump made an appeal to religious conservatives in June, saying he would work hard to advance “our shared values.” The candidate has claimed to be Presbyterian while questioning whether President Barack Obama & presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton are Christians.
