"The Jim Bakker Show" recently promoted a coin decorated with President Trump's face as a "point of contact" with
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."
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."

believe we have a Cyrus to navigate through the storm," according to Vox.
