Rebuking evil politicians is not political or partisan–it’s a part of our job.

Ministers are supposed to tell the truth. The question is what does telling the truth look like now? Telling the truth took on new meaning for Esther when the King decreed that all Jews should die.
Esther 4:14 says “For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”
The Holy Spirit is issuing a similar warning to every American preacher. He is telling us that our government has changed into an agent of America’s destruction–and that we must confront the government–they have broken the law, jumped the wall and seized parts of Church life where Government is strictly forbidden.
God is trying to get His message through to us: There was a day when men and women of God were right to leave politicians alone. That day is gone.
When confronted with all of the facts—knowing they are without excuse—some preachers simply drop the God Card: “God told me to keep quiet.” But no one—not even the best and wisest I know—has been able to justify silence in the face of evil.
The final bastion of denial is to say “we need to pray about all of this.” But God will shut out your prayers—regardless how deep and fervent they may be—if He knows that you will not obey His call to speak to the truth.
The preacher who rebukes our government today is not violating their call—they are fulfilling it. That is a bitter pill to swallow—but swallow it we must.
Consider what the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes said, “How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?”
When you eliminate the impossible you are left with this:
-The intensifying heat of government is in our pulpit. The list of subjects you cannot touch grows longer every day.
-Unapologetic evil emanates from the White House—soul-withering incompetence rules the House and Senate—crimes against the constitution are business as usual in the Supreme Court.
-The Supreme Court changed marriage and assaulted the family against the wishes of the people and the Constitution. Justice John Roberts admitted that the ruling on same sex marriage “had nothing to do with the Constitution.”
– Federal law is enforced selectively for Christians. Kim Davis goes to jail for refusing to enforce the illegal marriage law—the Mayor, City council and Sheriff of San Francisco face no legal action for violating the true immigration law—resulting in the murder of an innocent American.
-Iran call us the “great Satan,” calls for the “annihilation of Israel,” refuses to let anyone see their nuke labs and our government rewards them with $180 Billion—and the Republicans won’t stop it.
– Carly Fiorina put Planned Parenthood’s sales of aborted babies and their body parts in full detail:
“I dare Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama to watch these tapes,” Fiorina said, referencing the 10 undercover videos that showed how Planned Parenthood sells aborted babies and their body parts.
She continued: “Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking, while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain. This is about the character of our nation, and if we will not stand up in and force President Obama to veto this bill, shame on us.”
If the average American should be ashamed for not standing up—what depth of shame should the ordained men and women of God in this nation feel for not standing up?
If you are not willing to speak up pastor—why are you here? Why bother calling yourself a man or woman of God?
Whatever you do—do not be that guy that says, “Speaking out against political evil will cost you the anointing.” That is a lie conceived in a very special place in hell.
Today the church is overrun with false anointings. Pulpits are infested with men who roar from hollow bankrupt emotion. Self-appointed prophets and apostles ruin the church—lying about what God is saying. Their messages and predictions are tools for extracting money and power. They create evil appetites. They weaken and distract the church from true revival. They should hang their heads in shame for speeding up our demise.
What have we discovered in Branson? Telling the truth in love to an army that loves truth detonates GLORY, MIRACLES AND CONVERSIONS.
Emotionalism is swallowed up by true excitement. God crowns obedience with great power. Believers are getting outside themselves and bringing life to others. Tonight will be no different…the awesome presence of God will open souls to more of Jesus. Truth will thunder forth in love…and a nation will be called back to God.
I am not being partisan or political—I’m just a normal man of God…doing my job.
