"The Jim Bakker Show" recently promoted a coin decorated with President TrumpDonald John TrumpEsper sidesteps question on whether he aligns more with Mattis or Trump Warren embraces Thiel label: 'Good' As tensions escalate, US must intensify pressure on Iran and the IAEA MORE's face as a "point of contact" with God. 

In a viral clip of the promotion, evangelical author Lance Wallnau described the $45 coin as a means for believers to establish a “point of contact” with God.

“When I asked the Lord ‘Why the coin?’ he said ‘Because when you take the coin, it’s a point of contact,'” Wallnau said in the clip, which was shared on Twitter by Right Wing Watch, which "monitors and exposes the activities of Radical Right political organizations."

“So your faith is being released with a million other believers to pray protection and peace and wisdom and counsel over the president of the United States and over his family," he added.

“It’s our point of contact every day,” Wallnau continued. “When you see it remember God put something in your hand that you have a role in.” 

He went on to say, “That’s why we got to pray, because they think we’re crazy. But we’re actually the sane ones.”

“We gotta pray,” he added. “The teaching that is here, this coin is a point of contact, this 24-carat gold plated coin.”

Wallnau then shifted to the 2020 presidential election, saying: “We got 16 months. This battle for the future of America has already started.”

The coin depicts a photo of Trump alongside King Cyrus, the founder of the first Persian empire, and includes text reading “The 70 Year Decree” and “Cyrus-Trump Proclamation.” 

Last year, Wallnau referred to Trump as “modern-day Cyrus,” saying at the time that “America’s going to have a challenge either way. With Trump, I believe we have a Cyrus to navigate through the storm," according to Vox.
