THEY TOLD ME TO QUIT

I was told to quit. The person who said this was deeply concerned about my welfare. They made a chilling case for me to go silent while there was still time. They talked about websites with millions of followers that were suddenly wiped out today. They told me that anything I would say would be twisted—and, that not only would I be banned, but they would go after me until they had destroyed my career as a preacher.

I was ready to answer this person, because the Holy Spirit had warned me in advance that they were coming. So now I am going to relate to you what God told me about quitting. God gave me these verses:

Acts 18:9-11, “Now the Lord spoke to Paul in the night by a vision, “Do not be afraid, but speak, and do not keep silent; for I am with you, and no one will attack you to hurt you; for I have many people in this city.” And he (Paul) continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.”

The fact is that this blog and this ministry can’t be explained in the natural, anyway. Since it was born supernaturally, it will be sustained supernaturally. Not only am I not quitting, I will amplify all the words I receive from the Lord. You can count on that.

God is stands ready to refresh and empower you for a fresh attack on evil.

Isaiah 40 31 But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.

Now, I want to speak heart to heart with the remnant of God in America: This is a test. And we are in the worst part of that test. The rage of anti-God social media is out of control, because they feel emboldened to do whatever they want. And because they think Trump is done.

They are raining down shame and accusation on anyone who speaks truth. Nevertheless, we must not fear and we must not fold. Those preachers who cave in to fear, and then abandon their message, will pay a heavy price, not only from shame but also from regret―because they gave up just before the breakthrough.

1 Peter 4:17, “For it is the time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God?”

Evil is having its day.

You knew this wasn’t going to be easy. You knew their evil had to have its day. You knew there was no way we could have challenged these devils without unleashing a storm of hatred.

I know that fear can feel irresistible in this storm. I know it is disheartening when you see people you respected—and some of the last people you would have imagined—caving in and recanting their convictions.

But again, this is the worst time to fold. This is the worst time to doubt what God has said to you. Fear is not an option.

Portrait of a young man praying

Compromising with the enemy can be seductive, but it will end in disaster, and, as I said, you will feel deep remorse if the breakthrough comes right after you quit. Can you imagine having to live with that for the rest of your life?

Job 23:10, “He knows the way that I take. When He has tried me, I will come forth as gold, refined in the fire.”

I feel God is imploring us to hang on a little longer. I know how hard it has been! You have heard stories that promised to uncover the truth and turn the tide. Each time they raised our hopes and, when it didn’t happen, it wounded us.

I am not asking you to trust in myths, legends, or conspiracy theories.  I am compelling you to trust in God Himself and in His inspired words recorded in the Bible.

Hang in there. The enemy is going to be shocked! Hang in there. There are options we don’t know about. God is going to finish what He started in our great movement!

Hebrews 10:35-39, “Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise:

“For yet a little while, and He Who is coming will come and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith;
but if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him.” But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul.”

Shake off all distraction and division. God wants to give us our nation back.

We can all find someone to blame. We can blame prophets. We can blame doubters. But as long as we are blaming, we are unavailable to take our nation back. We must shake off all distraction and division. God wants to give us our nation back.

The enemy has invaded. This is not the time to turn on each other! Look to God again. Listen to the stirring of the Holy Spirit.

The strategies and tactics for regaining America are being released from heaven to a special core who will shake off the battle fatigue of Satan.

I feel it is urgent to tell you how I prepare for a tent meeting and how that is a model for getting the church back on the offensive in America.

Sun Tzu said, “Warriors of old placed themselves beyond the possibility of defeat, and then waited for an opportunity of defeating the enemy.” That is what I do spiritually. Can I get you away from the news for a moment? Can I get you to understand the secret for getting back on the attack—regardless of who you are?

Before I walk into that tent, I see those people already healed. I see the drug addicts already delivered. I have already won the war, alone with God. That is why everyone that knows me knows that they have to jealously guard my afternoon, because I cannot be with anyone but Christ. And Christ has to defeat me. And if He defeats me, and my flesh, then He will defeat the powers of darkness.

Besides hope, we also need fire. And fire will burn out indecision. It will burn out confusion. It will allow you to put all the controversy about ‘who failed’ and ‘who did what’ on the shelf, and then resume the urgent act of praying, “Lord, the nation is in serious trouble. You called me, You trained me, You raised me up for a specific purpose, and I cannot be distracted by all that.”

One important thing that everyone can take away from what I do to get ready for a tent crusade, is that I don’t let the outward vision be what I see. Can you imagine standing in front of a tent full of wheelchairs and people on crutches, and some of the most absolutely suffering humanity you have ever seen? I don’t see them that way. I cannot walk in there with my own eyes.

And likewise, you: you can’t go to your job, you can’t turn on your TV, you can’t do anything!

And that’s why I have a phrase that I live by, “The end times are not happening to me. I am happening to the end times.”

And so, suddenly, God will make you the catalyst. A catalyst is an element that changes everything around it without itself undergoing a change.

The Gospel is the message that God is most interested in. I think to myself, ‘Here is what God told me to tell America.’ Because, once you know that what you are saying is what God told you to tell America, you have the right to believe that the dead will be raised, the addict will be delivered, the churches will be unified, and you become unstoppable!

The pulpit I yearn for, for every one of my brothers and sisters right now, is that belief: ‘I have the fire. I have the message that God gave me for America!” And nothing will be able to stop you.

Here is the point I want to make. Dorcas was dead. And sometimes we need faith to come at us from a completely new direction. Dorcas was dead, and the people around her dead body said, “This is not right! This is not right!

And they found out that Peter, the great Apostle, was in Joppa. They didn’t bring him there for a wake. They didn’t bring him over there to reminisce about Dorcas’ life. They literally said, “Bring him here, to raise her from the dead.” That is a level of submission to the Spirit and power in the Book of Acts that we can’t hardly relate to.

But it’s about right and wrong. Abraham Lincoln said, “right makes might.”

Here is what God is telling us: we are not supposed to let Biden teach our children. We are not supposed to let Kamala Harris dominate our lives. That isn’t America!

I can no more imagine an atheistic-America than I can imagine an atheistic-Israel. America is also a land with covenants. Wells. Deep spiritual history. And, folks, God is rolling up His sleeves. He is fiercely in love with what America was. A group of people that crossed an ocean on pieces of wood that you and I wouldn’t dare imagine stepping on, in order to have freedom to worship Christ. And they carved a nation out of the wilderness, and that spirit has got to get back in us!

God is with us. God is on us. I don’t know how we’re going to do it, but God’s going to give us a plan. God’s going to give us the money. God’s going to give us the gifts and the power and the influence and the open door. And no atheist spirit, no perverted spirit, can stand before the Body of Christ, when She shakes Herself from Her division and Her confusion, and Her lack of memory.

The second weapon David used on the giant was the sling. The first weapon was his memory of what God had done in the past. He looked at Saul, and said, “You want to know why that nine-and-a-half-foot tall man is going to die? It is because your servant killed a lion and a bear.”

The Bible says, “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits.”

Church! We have been here before, and we are going to win again by the power of God. God just needs to turn on the fire, and stir that fire again in our souls!

DONALD TRUMP FOUGHT FOR US. NOW IT IS OUR TURN TO FIGHT FOR HIM.

Nancy Pelosi fears Donald Trump so much that she has become so deranged as to try to impeach him, even though he is now a private citizen! Her goal is to make sure he is banished from public life forever. We know, of course, that her impeachment attempt is a farce, doomed to go down in flames.

Even so, there is a fight for you and me to participate in. Donald Trump not only fought for us, he taught us how to fight.

When they told him that moving the American Embassy to Jerusalem was something many Presidents had promised, Trump delivered. They told him if he moved our embassy it would destroy relations in the Middle East. He fought them and won. He called their bluff and proved that his was a great victory by putting amazing peace treaties in place, signed by several Arab nations and Israel.

When Brett Kavanaugh was brutally attacked, Donald Trump fought and drove back the massive threat against Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court. Again, he ignored the threats from the Left and the doubters in his own party.

When every pulpit in America was under siege from the hideous Johnson Amendment, Trump went to bat, again, to restore freedom of speech to our pastors. Once again, he was threatened and was told it would be impossible, but he fought for us, and that Amendment was severely limited.

Many believers are confused about how they should be fighting for Donald Trump at this moment. So, how do we fight for him?

First, get your facts straight. If you are convinced Trump has been wronged, you will be convincing to others. Settle the question concerning what happened in this election in your heart. Revisit the promises of God and hold fast to them in FAITH! Lovingly, but firmly, tell those you love and fellow believers why you stand with Donald Trump.

There are simply too many of us for their ‘cancel culture’ to stop us. Consider Mike Lindell, of My Pillow, who has lost so much and is being attacked from all directions because of his unflinching stand with President Trump. He refuses to back down and is paying a dear price for his stand. You and I have a lot less to lose for continuing our support of Trump.

Yes, there are haters, and we may be maligned, but Trump was also maligned for us.  We may be threatened, but he was threatened each and every day for standing with the church.

Paul said he had, “fought the good fight.” He fought for righteousness and the kingdom of God. We, too, are called to fight for righteousness and against evil.

David Marcus said it best, writing for the Federalist:

“Trump invited the American people to fight back. We can argue over whether he was a carnival clown, it was wildly successful as the examples above demonstrate. There is no going back. Biden’s cavalcade of leftist wish list executive orders shows exactly where we are. Democrats don’t desire a détente, they desire domination. Over you, over your kids, over your community.

“Trump spoke for me and my ideas and the ideas of millions of Americans.

“Conservatives aren’t supposed to fight. We are supposed to go gently into that dark night of leftist hegemony…but we will not. We will keep up Trump’s fight.

“When William F. Buckley annunciated movement conservatism, he said things like “Nominate the most electable conservative” and “Stand athwart history yelling stop!” These were incredibly defensive positions. In retrospect, maybe making George Will’s bow tie the avatar for a conservatism that ceded cultural ground at every turn was a mistake.

“Unlike Buckley, Trump appeals to working-class and minority voters, and makes an effort to earn their votes. Unlike Buckley, Trump does not simply assume we are losing and trying to slow it down. He wants to win. And, yeah, he lost. He fought, but he lost.

“Now it is our fight. Now it is our responsibility to save the country. Who is with me?”

REMEMBER THE MAJESTY OF GOD AND FIGHT.

Berkeley was on fire. It was a night of terror. Rioters were smashing cars, windows, throwing homemade fire bombs into buildings. The night sky was lit up in flames. And I watched it, as I sat on the hood of my car with a garden hose running.

It was 1969, and, even though our ministry was in Berkeley to evangelize, I was alone that night. Just days before, someone had thrown a large chunk of concrete through a window of our staff housing. Shards of glass flew into the crib of a 6-month-old baby. The child was unhurt, but that was it! And so, I had insisted that my entire staff leave the city.

Somehow, back then, I owned a red 1969 Chevy Malibu Super Sport with a black vinyl top. Being a poor boy from the barrio, I wasn’t sure which would be the greater loss—the car or the building.

As the mob approached, I reflected that, as Marxists, these students had been taught to hate Christianity. Therefore, this property was a delectable target in their eyes. The devil seized the occasion to revile me, ridiculing every promise God had made to me about Berkeley. The enemy spewed venomous despair over me. This was, according to Satan, a scar of defeat that would cripple me for life. I bowed my head, and prepared to meet the inevitable.

The rioters stopped right in front of our building, so they could take direct aim. One of them was screaming obscenities about Christians into a bullhorn, and he ordered them, “Burn ‘em out!!” Then it happened. The most, out of the blue, inexplicable, and utterly unexpected act of God. I watched as his superior ripped the bullhorn from his hand and shouted an order, “These are good people. Passover them!”

After that night, we began 10 years of soul winning harvest at the University of California, and many thousands came to Christ.

Of all the words in the world, why would he say, “Passover?” Well, you and I know why…

I told you this because the army of God in America is right at that same moment. We are hearing the devil revile us. The nation is seemingly sinking into evil. Promises are on fire. Words from the Lord are being mugged—even by Christians. That is why I know the moral reformation and the political transformation are ready to begin!

Satan wants us to collapse beneath an avalanche of disappointment. He is working hard to get us to turn on each other. We must resist the temptation to give in to anger and despair, with all of our might. Instead, we must engage in specific acts of defiance and faith.

Nehemiah 4:14 is the verse for this hour, “I looked [them over] and rose up and said to the nobles and officials and the other people, ‘Do not be afraid of the enemy; [earnestly] remember the Lord, great and terrible, and imprint Him [on your minds], and [take courage from Him] fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes.’”

NOTE THAT THE FIRST THING NEHEMIAH SAID WAS: “REMEMBER!”  That is how we begin to shake off anger, disappointment, and division. All these years later, Satan bears a special hatred for my ‘Passover night’. Why? Because it is an ongoing weapon. A devastating one at that. Remembering that night has helped me stand against untold setbacks and storms. At this very moment it makes me strong.  It compels me to believe for a miracle, when all seems lost.

Why is that memory so lethal to Satan? Because God came through when it was impossible. Because human wisdom and explanation had expired. When there was no way—God made a way.

The Bible tells us, ‘Remember!’ And warns of the danger of forgetting.

Psalm 103:2, “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits…”

Psalm 78:10, “They did not keep the covenant of God; they refused to walk in His law, and forgot His works and His wonders that He had shown them.”

Judges 2:10, “When all that generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation arose after them who did not know the Lord, nor the work which He had done for Israel.”

That is the reason the Left has tried to destroy our history, because it chronicles the impossible miracles God performed in American history. Our history is a weapon we must protect!

You have that weapon, too! The weapon of remembering the times God did the impossible for you. David killed Goliath with two weapons. The second one was the sling. The first one was his memory of God’s intervention. He explained his confidence to Saul, “Your servant has killed both lion and bear; and this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, seeing he has defied the armies of the living God” (1 Samuel 17:36). 

No wonder Nehemiah told a weary army to remember the majesty of God in Jewish history!  Again, you have that weapon at your disposal, right now. You remember the impossible things God has done for you. Use that memory! Let that remembrance refuel your passion to fight! Use it to see why it is not too late for the promises God made about our nation to come to pass.

The second thing Nehemiah said was, “Fight!” “Fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes.”

Of all the things we must do, we must stop the infighting and get back to the real fight. Satan knows how urgent that real fight is. Which is why he used extremists to stage an abomination in the Capitol of our nation. That was meant to enrage our enemies against us by a false accusation, and it was meant to scare us away from opposing the rogue administration.

Tens of thousands of Biden/Harris voters have buyer’s remorse. They are infuriated with what is going on. Yet, Biden is too scared, and Harris is too jaded, to care. They are both ignoring the needs of Americans—both those on the right and those on the left. China empowered them and China’s needs are their only concern.

America is finally onto the elitist media, and the Republican and Democrat stooges who are all in on the deal. The sudden return of Trump seems inevitable. That is why we must shake off our timidity and fight.

After only 7 days of this faux regime, the momentum in America is already shifting. We have a doorway to a miracle if we will just shake off the dust and get back up. I am talking about fighting with the weapons of the Spirit—not carnal weapons.

We found out in Bakersfield that Californians—who are on the verge of recalling Governor Newsom, by the way—are also rethinking their rejection of Christ. Thousands are ready to be saved. We are spread thin by the great number of open doors available for winning souls. We are not simply on the verge of a return to conservative thought—we are on the verge of a national moral awakening!

WHAT REALLY HAPPENED BETWEEN THE PROPHETS AND THE ELECTION.

I have waited until now in order to answer this question, having now gained a better perspective. My delay is modeled after the verses that follow. They took place as Job sat with his friends who were trying to help him make sense of the horrific ordeal that had befallen him. Being younger that the three friends of Job, Elihu listened and stayed quiet as long as he could, then he finally spoke:

“So Elihu, the son of Barachel the Buzite, answered and said: “I am younger in years, and you are very old; therefore, I was afraid, and dared not declare my opinion to you.” I said, “Age should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom.” But there is a spirit in man, and the breath of the Almighty gives him understanding. Great men are not always wise, nor do the aged always understand justice” (Job 32:6-9).

If you have been following my blogs recently, you will remember that I did not prophesy a Trump victory, but I supported the true prophets who did.

So: how can we reconcile what has happened to the predictions of the true prophets?

I was surprised that no one that I know of saw the obvious answer to what has happened with these prophecies. The truth has always been in plain sight, in the Bible. So, I will now speak, knowing I am risking wrath from both those who support the prophets, and those who reject them.

Here goes:

We read in 2 Kings 13 about a prophetic prediction. Jehoash the king faces the doom of the Syrians and beseeches the prophet Elisha for God’s help. “And Elisha said to him, ‘Take bow and arrows.’ And he took bow and arrows. And he said to the king of Israel, ‘Put your hand upon the bow.’ And (Jehoash) put his hand upon it, and Elisha put his hands upon the king’s hands. And (Elisha) said, ‘Open the window to the east.’ And he opened it. Then Elisha said, ‘Shoot.’ And he shot. And (Elisha) said, ‘The Lord’s arrow of victory, the arrow of victory over Syria. For you shall smite the Syrians in Aphek until you have destroyed them.’ Then he said, ‘Take the arrows.’ And he took them. And he said to the king of Israel, ‘Strike on the ground.’ And he struck three times and stopped. And the man of God was angry with him and said, ‘You should have struck five or six times; then you would have struck down Syria until you had destroyed it. But now you shall strike Syria down only three times” (2 Kings 13:15-19).

First, Elisha prophesies the complete destruction of Syria at Aphek, saying, “For you shall smite the Syrians in Aphek till you have destroyed them.” But the king failed to seize the promise, and rather than striking repeatedly, Jehoash made a half-hearted effort. The promise, though valid was thwarted, and the prophet said, “But now you shall strike Syria down only three times.”

Here is what Albert Barnes’ commentary says, “God had been willing to give the Israelites complete victory over Syria, but Jehoash by his non-acceptance of the divine promise in its fullness had checked the outflow of mercy; and the result was that the original promise could not be fulfilled.”

That is a direct parallel with what happened in America. There were true prophets and false prophets. And, while their messages about Trump seemed the same, there was a stark difference. The true prophets rightly coupled the promise of Trump’s victory with a call for the Church to repent. But the false prophets spoke as if we were entitled to an automatic victory.

We also entered a “but now” moment, just as the king did. Elisha said, “But now you shall strike Syria down only three times.” In the same way, now, we got an election win, but not the victory to carry us over the finish line.

Just as the prophet ordered the king to “take arrows and strike the ground,” so God ordered the American Church to rally around Trump. The true remnant struck the ground, but many others did not. Some misguided voices diluted the church’s ability to run with the prophetic promise.

‘Woke’ voices, such as Beth Moore and Jim Wallis, notably made it their mission to insult and demean both Trump and his voters. At no time did they offer any sort of meaningful alternative to God’s provision for America.

Nevertheless, we struck the enemy three times, and we actually did win the election. Trump won by a landslide. But we did not get the full victory that would have come if the fraud had been exposed and overturned. That victory was in God’s original plan, but the American Church’s response was simply too little, too late.

We could have taken more authority over demonic power. We needed the lukewarm to repent. That is why we saw the Supreme Court collapse, and why Mike Pence and other Republican leaders chose to save their own political careers, rather than save the nation.

On January 6th, a demonic blanket of evil fell over Washington as Antifa, and BLM protestors posing as Trump supporters, along with a few misguided rightwing extremists, allowed the march to walk into a trap, release great tragedy, and handed the enemy an excuse to try and destroy Trump permanently.

That plus the lethal combination of ‘woke’ Christians, false prophets, and assorted cowards, combined to weaken the enforcement of the true prophecy that Trump would remain in the White House. Instead, we have a puppet and a Jezebel spirit lurking in the people’s house.

So where do we go from here? Just as the defeat of Syria was not denied, but only delayed, just so, I see that God still holds a miracle for us.

The most important thing we can do is to hold the remnant together and not fade into confusion and discouragement over what happened. The most powerful news is that God is at this very moment raising a new attack on the evil that has taken over the government. I believe there is a remnant who will stand between heaven and earth and take authority over the election fraud coverup, so that it can be exposed.

When the prophet Daniel realized that the 70 years of captivity in Babylon was over, he did not just sit back and assume victory would ensue. He set himself to fast, pray, and repent on behalf of Israel.  Here are his own words: “In the first year of his reign I, Daniel, understood by the books the number of the years specified by the word of the Lord through Jeremiah the prophet, that He would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem. Then I set my face toward the Lord God to make request by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes. And I prayed to the Lord my God, and made confession…” (Daniel 9:2-4).

We have a great hope if we do not lose heart. First of all, Trump is not going anywhere. Look for a new plan and a new strategy to emerge. Next, the Democrats are about to make America so miserable that they will be forever despised for the damage they are doing to our nation. America is about to get socialism and progressivism out of their system for good.

While it is true that we failed to strike the ground repeatedly and with force, thank God we will have another chance to do just that, and we will prevail!

SOON, CHRISTIANS WHO VOTED FOR BIDEN WILL FACE A RECKONING

Because I voted for Donald Trump, I own no part in the festering blanket of evil and misery that Democrats are unrolling onto all Americans. My conscience is clear.

For the first time in American history, our President does the unquestioned bidding of people who hate America. That explains his first day in office:

Killing the Keystone Pipeline: On his first day in office, Biden killed thousands of jobs for union workers and increased America’s dependence on foreign energy. This was a move that both weakened our economy and strengthened our enemies.

Mass abortions: In his first day in office, he not only bolstered abortions here at home, but ordered that your tax dollars be used to pay for abortions in the U.S., as well as promoting abortions in other nations.

Environmental madness: In his first day in office, he rejoined the World Health Organization and The Paris Agreement, both of which further solidified China’s power over Americans and unleashed the unicorn-environmentalists on our economy.

Trading citizenship for votes: In his first day in office, he flung our borders open to millions in a scheme so dastardly as to present a new low, even for Democrats: they are trading American citizenship for Democrat votes. A massive caravan is approaching our southern border at this moment, where they will be welcomed with open arms. And, since he has also halted the building of the wall, America will be less protected from terrorists, MS-13 members, drug dealers and illegals who will quickly disappear into our cities. Vast numbers of them will arrive to be provided with free healthcare—in the middle of a pandemic—amid massive unemployment, and after the death of hundreds of thousands of small businesses.  The political elite want to secure their power for decades by providing many grateful voters.

So, let me ask you: That was day one. What will America look like after 1,459 more days of this?

Many Christians who voted for Biden are bashing those who supported Trump. They are saying we were foolish to follow such a flawed leader. We were wrong to trust prophets. We were heartless to the poor and that we were identifying with racism. We were displeasing Christ and we were wrong to be involved in politics. Blah, blah, blah.

For the moment you look hip, lucid and fashionable to outsiders, but that is a fleeting reprieve. Soon, you will have to reconcile your vote with your Christianity. Soon there will be drag queens reading to children in our public libraries, boys in the girl’s restrooms, unreached heights of terminating babies in late term abortions, and censorship of all things Christian. Not only that joblessness will multiply and you will be shocked that Biden does not care because his vision is global not local. Then you will realize what you have voted for.

When atheism comes calling with a hatred for God, an atheism that cares nothing about your ‘woke’ version of Christ, and comes with guidelines that only allow their version of Christianity, a version far from the word of God—when you look in your child’s eye and explain how their future will be designed by other nations and other values―just remember your vote. And remember the ridicule you spewed at Trump supporters.

How puny does your offense over Trump’s rudeness appear now? How does anything Trump texted compare to the danger and wickedness you see currently oozing out of the White House? 

You are now part owner of everything Biden does to America. Whatever happens from here on out will reflect on your choice. By putting Biden first, you put America last. And I will leave it to God to decide how your vote reflects on your faith.

If you voted for Biden, and still insist you did the right thing, I can neither agree with you nor console you. If you are open to God, there is a peace and forgiveness available, and there is still time to participate in the great work of God here on earth that will soon arrive.

To those who discerned the times, stood with Trump, and are still standing for one nation under God, there is the peace of knowing you obeyed your conscience and stood with the vision of America that the Founding Fathers received from God. Not only that, but there is still a miracle coming―and it is a miracle that cannot be rigged.

If only you could hear Jesus praying for you in the next room

The very idea of overhearing Christ talk to the Father about you should send an eternal quiver through your soul.  What would we hear Him pray?

Here’s why we need to know.  Today’s disciple is facing threats that were unheard of even 10 years ago.  World events are explosive.  Changes are dizzying.  The child of God navigates a world that can be truly frightening.

Having children and grandchildren who depend on us makes it all the more difficult. We wonder what will happen to them.  How can I protect them in such a violent and unpredictable time?

For this and many other reasons we must have a relationship with God that is new and unshakable.  We need faith like Daniel had in the lion’s den.  We need authority like the disciples had to open prison doors.  We must own a walk that conquers sickness, lack and sudden attacks.

Above all, we need to discern the works of Satan.  He knows his time is short and he has broken into a frenzy to take down as many as he can.

We can rely, to a degree, on powerful preaching.  We can play worship music in our prayer room and quell the dismaying emotions of this time.  But we need something far more.  We need something so amazing that it holds us not matter what.  That my friend, is where the prayers of Jesus for us, matter most.

Here are some facts about Jesus praying for you.

He started praying for you the moment you got saved.  The world can’t enjoy the benefit of His prayers.  John17: 9 says, “I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours.

He will not stop praying for you. Hebrews 7: 25 “Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.”  At this moment He is lifting your situation before the Father and that prayer is unending.

He prayed that Satan would not touch you.  John 17: 15 I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.

He has prayed in advance of your greatest hour of testing, just as He did for Peter.  Luke 22:32 “But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.”

Here is the most important fact of Jesus praying for you: He says you are His.  Let’s take a closer look at what that means.  His love for you is not just tender it is fierce.

Consider the momma grizzly as she snuggles her cub.  She is the essence of love.  Now, try to come between her and her cub. The loving mom instantly becomes the most terrifying creature on earth.  She will stop at nothing to protect her cub. Both the tender moment and the terrifying one are expressions of the same love.

Here’s the thing…that instinct is from God.  The same Jesus who comforts you with unmatched tenderness turns His wrath on the evil one when you are threatened.  It would be breathtaking to see the difference in His intercession before the Father when you need comfort, and when you need to be rescued from Satan’s attack.

He will not let anything come between you and Him.  Paul said it this way: Romans 8:38 “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

That is why I say: if you could hear Jesus praying for you in the next room, you would not fear a million enemies.

SCRIPTURE DOES NOT TELL BELIEVERS TO OBEY EVIL LAWS

Today we woke to the up to the sad truth that Democrats  have declared war. They are demanding unconditional surrender. No only from the church but from innocent citizens. Their war compels believers to look again at what the Bible says about evil laws and evil leaders.

Doesn’t the Bible tell us to obey them no matter what? Absolutely not. And it is shocking how many believers do not know their Bible or have been given false teaching. There is no verse in the Bible that tells you to obey evil government or laws. And again, if we don’t realize that now, before we sit back and let our nation be destroyed.

Christians during the American Revolution understood that the Bible does not teach us to obey evil laws or leaders. There would be no America if Christian Colonists believed they should obey the evil laws of England.

Let me prove to you beyond any doubt that the Bible tells us what we must do in the face of wicked government and laws.

First, I will expose a pathetic heresy that many believers commonly accept as truth. This is a widespread excuse for submitting when we should disobey.

Here is an example of someone who wrote me while under the influence of this false teaching:

“Out of curiosity, how do you justify your argument against obeying the government when you read Romans 13:1-7. The government Paul was talking about was even more oppressive than anything we can imagine. You could truly be martyred for your faith under the Roman government. And, what was Paul’s response? Did he call for governmental reform? Did he call for us to protest the government? Did he demand his rights and call on the government to recognize his rights? None of the above, he said, in the face of a brutal government, to obey. He didn’t say obey if your rights are recognized, he said obey. The church of today has to realize that the government is not our arena as Christians. Never, in the history of the church, has God used the government to bring about change.”

This defense of submission to evil government is riddled with error and falsehoods. Here are my responses to selected quotes:

1.You could truly be martyred for your faith under the Roman government.” First the writer tells us to obey evil laws, but then mentions martyrs. They never would have been martyred had they not broken the law by being Christians.

2. Then he asks, “Did (Paul) call for governmental reform? Did he call for us to protest the government? Did he demand his rights and call on the government to recognize his rights? None of the above…” The truth is, Paul did all of the above. “Paul said to them, “They have beaten us openly, uncondemned Romans, and have thrown us into prison. And now do they put us out secretly? No indeed! Let them come themselves and get us out” (Acts 16:37).

3. And finally, the zinger—the heresy that has sidelined the Body of Christ in the hour when we are most needed: “The church of today has to realize that the government is not our arena as Christians. Never, in the history of the church, has God used the government to bring about change.” Totally untrue. William Wilberforce was a Christian who used his faith in Jesus to abolish slavery in England. In fact, believers throughout history have created child labor laws, health regulations, and have exposed injustice, and corruption. It is safe to say that Christians are more responsible for influencing government, bringing about reform by forcing laws to be changed, and standing up for justice, than any other group in history.

So how did this writer get it so wrong? By doing what so many do. Isolating one set of verses, taking them out of context, and arriving at a conclusion that looks holy, but is in fact, pure and simple fear.

Let’s look at the verses that have been violated:

“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore, whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. Therefore, you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for the sake of conscience. For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor (Romans 13:1-7).

It seems to say that we are to honor government in every form, right? Wrong. To demonstrate what Paul is saying I offer this example. Say some parents leave the house, and leave the oldest child in charge. The child is given strict instructions not to open the door for anyone, except for a postal messenger whom they are expecting to deliver an important package that day.

The parents tell the child, “He will have blonde hair. He is wearing blue jeans and a white shirt. Don’t let anyone else in.” So later, a man with black hair, a blue shirt, and black slacks knocks on the door claiming to be the messenger with the package. Do they let him in? Of course not.

Lost in all the quoting of this verse on submission to government is the most important part: The description of the ruling authority. The Bible tells us what they are wearing! Look at the description:

1.They are not a terror to good works. Any government that terrorizes the innocent is not of God. How can you say that Hitler was God’s will for Germany? Hitler and other tyrants are in fact the ones being warned that there were God appointed governments who would destroy them: “But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.”  That is why the just powers of the world rose up and destroyed the Nazis.

2. They praise good works. Authorities that are endorsed by God do not hate or oppose Christian activity. They are the ones who—even if they are not Christian themselves—do not insult soul winning or fight the work of God. They are the cops, teachers, politicians who are glad that children are getting out of gangs and off of drugs.

3. You must be subject for the sake of conscience. When it becomes tricky, is when government is a mixture of right and wrong. Jesus said of the Pharisees, “Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, but do not do” (Matthew 23:3).

Do what they say, but don’t partake of their hypocrisy. Watch them for that moment when they cross the line and come between you and your God.  Just as our conscience should drive us to obey the law, we should also know when our conscience tells us not to obey an evil law.

Here’s when Peter reached that tipping point, speaking to those very same Pharisees: “So they called them and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered and said to them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:18-20).

And again, in Acts 5:29, “Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.””

God not only does not endorse evil government: He will have no part in it. “Can a corrupt throne be allied with you—a throne that brings on misery by its decrees? The wicked band together against the righteous and condemn the innocent to death” (Psalm 94:20). There is your answer. A corrupt throne (government) cannot be allied with God.

The Amplified Bible (1974) puts it this way: “Can a throne of destruction be allied with You, one which frames and devises mischief by decree [under the sacred name of law]?”  How much clearer can it be than this?  It proves that laws can be evil and cannot be allied with God.

In fact, evil laws are the worst form of sin. They provide legitimacy to evil.  Matthew Henry said, “Iniquity is daring enough even when human laws are against it, which often prove too weak to give an effectual check to it; but how insolent, how mischievous, is it when it is backed by a law! Iniquity is not the better, but much the worse, for being enacted by law; nor will it excuse those that practice it to say that they did but do as they were bidden.”

Notice how at the end, Henry says we can’t use the excuse that we were just obeying the law.  That is why Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”

The laws being created by Democrats, using the coronavirus as an excuse, are far worse than the virus itself because, unlike the virus, those new laws become permanent.  It is time for the church to wake up and take action, beginning with voting the evildoers out of office and quit calling our submission a godly thing, when it is just a cowardly thing.

“WHO WILL RISE UP FOR ME AGAINST THE EVILDOERS? WHO WILL STAND UP FOR ME AGAINST THE WORKERS OF INIQUITY?” (Psalm 94:16).

 

 

THE STUPIDEST IDEA EVER

At least 74 million Americans voted for Trump. They are not ‘loons’, despite what Bill Maher or Katie Couric thinks. Neither are they ‘brainwashed.’ Nor do they have a ‘cult-like adoration’ for Trump. Of course, every movement has its fringe, but the millions who comprise the Make America Great Again movement are, in no way, a passing parade of wackos.

You may believe they are going away. You may be convinced that CNN and ABC are right when they talk about ‘deprogramming and cleansing Trump supporters.’ If you want to follow the leftist Hollywood stars who today vilified Trump voters, go ahead, but you can never say you were not warned.

74 million people is an enormous group to insult and threaten. To question their sanity is, in itself, insanity. Labeling them as extremists only shows your extreme ignorance.

Above all, consider this: there will be a backlash, and I will explain why, in a moment. What you must understand is that the very first victims of this backlash will be Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. For obvious reasons, I should not even be letting this out of the bag…but railing against Trump supporters will make it impossible for Biden to succeed.

Joe: you will be hampered every step of the way if you keep attacking Trump people.

At first there will be a lull. Trump will go golfing and folks will hang up their MAGA hats. For the moment, corporations and banks will give in to woke threats and ban products and try to cancel folks like Mike Lindell, the My Pillow man, for supporting Trump. And, at first, that will work.  But then, look out.

Remember when the LGBTQ people tried to put Chick-fil-A out of business, and soon the opposite happened, as folks lined up for hours to buy their food? The same will happen to Bed Bath and Beyond and Kohl’s—but in reverse, for banning My Pillow products. And, it will happen to any corporation that tries to cancel Trump voters.

Here’s why:

By attacking them, Democrats are in reality galvanizing an intelligent group of people to act as a single unit. These are not hayseed, backwater buffoons. These are educated business owners. These are middleclass families with deeply held beliefs. They are black and brown people who were faithful Democrats, but who saw the light and left the plantation.

All these people have one thing in common: they came by their convictions slowly and deliberately. That means you will only motivate them when you insult them for being racists, cultists and Nazis. Because they, more than anyone else, know how big a lie those insults are. 

74 million people is a lot of influence and buying power. 74 million people who believe something fishy happened on November 3rd represent a lot of investigative power. Somewhere, someone who knows something is going to crack, and then, it is game-on.

74 million people who will not let an issue go is a Congressman’s worst nightmare. They can run, but they cannot hide. And if they want to be reelected, they had better listen.

74 million people remember who closed all those small businesses, and why.

Go ahead and enjoy the lull. Repeat this mantra over and over to yourself, until you believe it: “It was a fair and free election, and everyone believes it.” Everyone, that is, except the 100 million Americans whom the polls show don’t believe it.

Go ahead and keep lying about millions of citizens who are not brainwashed, stupid or fickle.

Go ahead and underestimate us. That will be remarkably interesting…

WHAT THEY MEANT FOR EVIL

Someone has wrapped a noose around the neck of free speech and every other right we hold dear. Certain opinions are being choked to death in America. I get why tech giants are fine with wielding oppressive control over people’s opinions—I have never seen them as anything but greedy and power hungry. They are not, as some naïve ‘woke’ folk claim, “trying to save democracy.”

And yet, strangely, I feel a calm sense of hope amid all of this.

What I do not get is why many of the elements of the media, key intellectuals, and some mainstream institutions that have been wise and objective in the past are now strangely quiet during the censorship, silencing, and even the cancel-culture obliteration of many American lives. Such widespread acceptance of tyranny by them is totally new to America.

And still, I feel a great hope, even in this situation.

What is also new is the attitude of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, along with the Democrat Party. They have made it abundantly clear that they are not going to reach out to the millions who voted for Trump. They are moving on without us. No one has ever had that attitude after “winning” an election.

Does that sound like something is being forced on us? It should. 2020 has been a year full of things forced on the American people. Since they forced their election upon us, why would they feel any need to work with us?

What is happening to America is evil. Preplanned and premeditated evil. We are watching something that was hatched decades ago and is finally upon us. So why do I feel hope in a seemingly hopeless situation? Precisely because it is evil.

Genesis 50:20 says, “But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive.”  Those words were spoken by Joseph to his brothers who had sold him into slavery. That vicious act was exploited by God to promote Joseph into a position of royalty in Egypt, in order to save a nation from famine.

It is time for you to settle your spirit behind a historical fact. God has always dealt with evil in America, even when we did not deserve it. It is not by accident that ‘wokesters’ have tried to bury our history. It is there that we find the irrevocable evidence of God’s intervention in America. It is not simply the people of America that God loves, it is the idea of America. In order for that idea to be destroyed, you would first have to get past our omniscient and loving God.

Many believers are throwing in the towel too early. We could very easily see a miracle in a few days. That miracle would cause unprecedented nationwide convulsions. Or it could take longer. But one way or another, surely and eventually, the evil will be exposed and it will be punished.

God may do it by changing the tide of public opinion. Another way is by exposing the evil acts and those who have committed the evil. One thing has already begun:  because Fake News outlets such as CNN have openly called for the shutting down of any news outlets that do not spout Democrat Party propaganda, such as One America News Network and Newsmax, Christian conservatives have been forced to build their own mass media—something they should have done long ago.

Another way may be the sudden groundswell of hunger for righteousness, which I see sparking mass conversions. The tide of revival is only just now beginning to crash upon our shores.

What the minions of Satan mean for evil, God will exploit for good, in order to save many.  You can either let the images of blasphemy and arrogance drain your spirit or you can take your stand, lift up your head and anticipate the inevitable intervention of the Holy Lord of the Armies of Heaven!
