Following the conviction of former U.S. President Donald Trump Thursday, May 30, Harvest Christian Fellowship Pastor Greg Laurie asked his followers to pray for America and warned that the “signs of the times” are telling the world that “Jesus is coming back.”

Trump, who is one of the leading candidates in this year’s presidential election, was found guilty of 34 felony charges related to falsifying business records. The records involved him paying off porn star Stormy Daniels in an attempt to keep her quiet regarding their sexual encounter so it would not influence voters in the 2016 presidential election.

Although all 12 members of the New York jury found the former president guilty, at a news conference on Friday, Trump called the trial “a scam” and said that he would appeal all 34 counts of his conviction.

Trump is the first former U.S. president to be convicted of a felony crime and is scheduled to be sentenced on July 11.

“Please, pray for America. Pray for America like you never have before,” Laurie posted after Trump’s verdict was read on Thursday.

Hours later, the following morning, Laurie shared another post stating that he believes that government overreach and the rise of antisemitism are signs of the end times.

“Government overreach. The weaponization of the legal system to impose views contrary to our own. The rise of Anti-semitism, the threat of war,” said Laurie. “All of these are ‘Signs of the times’ telling us one thing—Jesus is coming back.”

“I believe the next event on the prophetic calendar is the rapture of the Church,” he added. “Then comes the Tribulation period that I do not believe Christians will go through.”
