Even though gospel singer Jonathan McReynolds turned down the opportunity to sing at one of President Donald Trump’s inaugural events, he’s now advising Christians to take advantage of the stock market which has hit record highs since his election in November.
Trump tweeted about the continued stock market surge on Feb. 16, writing: “Stock market hits new high with longest winning streak in decades. Great level of confidence and optimism — even before tax plan rollout!” That same day, USA Today reported that the Dow had hit an all-time record closing high.
When the 27-year-old McReynolds realized that the stock market has been surging, he advised his Instagram followers to take advantage of their economic opportunities.
“I have some real cautious Instagram followers out there that get concerned when I make excursions outside of the normal church topics: worship music, preaching, whatever,” he said in an Instagram video. “But I think it’s very important that at least some of the body of Christ stays engaged in politics and things that are going on in economics and culture so that one, we can influence it, and two, we can benefit from it.”
McReynolds said that while he was young and imperfect, he thought it was important to inform people about current economic events.
“Whether you love or hate Donald Trump ever since he was elected president, the stock market has been going up. And everybody, including me that has a stake in the stock market — whether it’s a mutual fund, Facebook, whatever — we have benefited from the stock market jump,” he said. “So, I’m just telling you guys, whether you love him, understand him, whatever, benefit from this moment, get in that stock market and get some money for the Kingdom.”
Still, the singer urged Christians to do their research.
“#KingdomMoney I can help you if you let me lol,” he captioned the video. “Do your research though, and STAY ATTENTIVE!”
