Some might say that Trump rallies are, on their own, magical enough. Between his hilarious jokes, insightful comments, and the palpable energy of the crowd, going to a Trump rally is a magical event that you won’t soon forget. Each one is amazing, fun, and near impossible to compare to anything else out there. It’s like pairing Christmas morning with liberal tears.
In any case, there was something particularly brilliant, particularly magical, about what happened right before he took the stage for his recent rally in Arizona. Watch that here:

Yes, it’s amazing that Trump is making a recovery at all. Absolutely, his speech, one in which he slammed every leftist sacred cow and said that Brandon is turning America into Venezuela, was brilliant. But just look at that sunset, look at that crowd!
That what the smiles of the gods look like; that’s what it looks like to be blessed.
That sunset didn’t need to happen. That crowd didn’t need to show up. But both did. God made the sky turn a brilliant red, the color of the Republican party, the color of a MAGA hat. God was showing his favor on one of his greatest warriors, and so was the massive crowd of thosands of loyal, patriotic Americans that showed up.
Sure, some of you will laugh at that. Many might think it’s sacrilige, if not just ridiculous, to say that a sign in the sky is a symbol of victory or of favor for one man.
But do you know why the Western Roman Empire turned Christian, why Constantine turned away from the old gods and embraced Christ? Here’s a hint: it was because of a sign in the sky. Here’s what Early Church History reports happened with Charlemagne and a sign in the sky:
The first public use of the Chi Rho symbol was on the labarum, the shield of Constantine’s warriors in the Battle of Milvian Bridge on October 28, 213 AD. Emperor Constantine (reigned 306-337) and his troops saw a miraculous sign in the sky the day before the battle.
Emperor Constantine won the Battle of Milvian Bridge and believed he won because of the symbol of Christ, the Chi Rho, upon the shields of his men. Several months later, Constantine in the Edit of Milan declared Christianity legal in the Roman Empire. The almost three hundred years of Imperial Persecution against Christians were over.
Years after the battle, Constantine the Great related to Eusebius, Bishop of Caesarea, the miraculous event that happened to him shortly before that battle:
“He said that about noon, when the day was already beginning to decline, he saw with his own eyes a trophy of a cross of light in the heavens, above the sun, and bearing the inscription, ‘Conquer By This Sign.’ At this sight he himself was struck with amazement, as was his whole army also, which followed him on this expedition, and witnessed the miracle. (Constantine) said, moreover, that he doubted within himself what the import of this apparition could be. And while he continued to ponder and reason on its meaning, night suddenly came on; then in his sleep the Christ of God appeared to him with the same sign which he had seen in the heavens, and commanded him to make a likeness of that sign which he had seen in the heavens and to use it as a safeguard in all engagement with his enemies….the victorious emperor himself long afterwards declared (this) to this writer of history when he (Eusebius) was honored with his acquaintance and society, and (Constantine) confirmed his statement by an oath.” Eusebius, Life of Constantine 28.29
So laugh all you want. But perhaps the red sky was Trump’s Chi Rho.
