THE SUPREME URGENCY

Filling the vacant seat on the Supreme Court is urgent for both Trump and the Republican Senate. You will hear all kinds of lies and threats from the Democrats, the Fake News and leftists—and from all the usual RINOs. Even now, they have begun screaming that this is tyrannical, evil and wrong to place someone on the bench during an election year.

Throughout American history, the party that controls the Senate, gets to fill Supreme Court vacancies at any time. This includes election years, lame duck sessions after an election and even when the election is lost by the majority in the Senate. They have the power to do it any time there is an opening.

If the Senate is controlled by the party that opposes the President, they can block the nomination.  In 2016, Barack Obama nominated Merrick Garland to replace Antonin Scalia in March of the last year of Obama’s term, during the Trump–Clinton election.

Because Republicans held the majority in the Senate they blocked Garland’s nomination. Elections have consequences. The Democrats cried foul, but they were wrong. This was a simple case of how our system works. People elected Republicans to do their job, and they did it. This has happened many times in our history.

As Dan McLaughlin said “Historically, when the opposite party controls the Senate, the Senate gets to block Supreme Court nominees sent up in a presidential election year, and hold the seat open for the winner. Both of those precedents are settled by experience that is as old as the republic.

“Twenty-nine times in American history there has been an open Supreme Court vacancy in a presidential election year, or in a lame-duck session before the next presidential inauguration. (This counts vacancies created by new seats on the Court, but not vacancies for which there was a nomination already pending when the year began, such as happened in 1835–36 and 1987–88.) The President made a nomination in all twenty-nine cases. George Washington did it three times. John Adams did it. Thomas Jefferson did it. Abraham Lincoln did it. Ulysses S. Grant did it. Franklin D. Roosevelt did it. Dwight Eisenhower did it. Barack Obama, of course, did it.”

JOE BIDEN SAID THIS IN 2016: “Whenever there is a vacancy in the courts created by the Constitution itself, the supreme court of the United States the president shall—not may—shall appoint someone to fill the vacancy with advice and consent of the U.S. Senate. And deciding in advance simply to turn your back even before the president names a nominee is not an option the constitution leaves open.  It’s a plain abdication of the Senate’s solemn constitutional duty. If the president consults in cooperation with the senate then his nominee may enjoy my support. I made it absolutely clear I would go forward with the confirmation process as chairman even a few months before a presidential election.” Joe Biden 2016

It is extremely dangerous for Republicans to cave to pressure being put upon them, and hesitate to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court. They would be creating a new and disastrous precedent. McLaughlin says, “Choosing not to fill a vacancy would be a historically unprecedented act of unilateral disarmament.”

The Nancy Pelosi clown car has careened away from constitutional law so long that they don’t even see the Constitution in their rear-view mirror. They can whine and rage all they want, but Republicans are absolutely right to take action now to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The threats have already begun to be more and more insane: “If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire f***ing thing down,” former CNN host Reza Aslan wrote on Twitter. “Over our dead bodies. Literally.” That is what Aslan wrote, a man who is a total hack and gained notoriety by being anti-Christian. He wrote the dumbest book I have ever seen about how Jesus resembled an Islamist Jihadist. That’s why he’s on CNN. That is also why we should utterly ignore his kind of threats and do the right thing.

The single most important reason we must move with haste is our 5 decade-old war to end one of the most heinous practices that has ever seen the light of day: Abortion.

Is it right to confirm a Supreme Court Justice in just 45 days? We have done it three times in our history. One of those times was when Ruth Bader Ginsburg was confirmed—it took just 42 days…

WHAT HER DEATH MEANS TO THE ELECTION

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead. I will neither vilify her nor praise her. My task is to show you the impact her death will have on the election. And trust me. Her departure is a game changer.

The nation will mourn briefly. Accolades will pour in from the left and the right. We will enjoy a brief respite from the war on the streets and in government. Very brief. Then something fierce will come our way. Well, here it is, by the numbers.

 

1. The short peace is but the eye of the storm. Riots, looting and demonstrations will increase. You will hear the most insane railings by protesters you have heard yet. You will hear vile accusations against Republicans, conservatives and Christians.

The unhinged voices of many like Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Nancy Pelosi, and Maxine Waters will billow like smoke from a fire at a tire factory. The thought of another conservative Justice on the bench will cause a panic that will soon foment rage and call for a coup against the President and Senate. Their fury will be directed at one thing: preventing Trump from selecting another Supreme Court Justice to replace Ginsburg. They will scream and declare it to be the end of the world.

2. The election is now all about the Supreme Court. The economy is no longer the main issue. Religious freedom and Second Amendment controversy moves to the back-burner. The opportunity to put multiple justices on the bench of the highest court in Trump’s second term will fire up the Trump base as nothing has so far. Enthusiasm for Trump will reach unprecedented heights.

But so will the fervor of the opposition. Even Biden may show a pulse. Prepare for filth, vileness, and bald-faced lies on a scale unknown in America—perhaps in the history of the world!

Our streets will be filled with angry mobs. The airwaves will ooze sludge against Trump. Obscenities, will abound, red-faced commentators will scream their disgust at Trump, and they will shame anyone who supports him.

THIS JUST IN: AT 10:10 AM PST, THE FIRST THREAT DELIVERED BY LEFTIST RADICAL ISLAMIST AND CNN HOST: “If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire f***ing thing down,” former CNN host Reza Aslan wrote on Twitter. “Over our dead bodies. Literally.”

Mitch McConnell has already lit the fuse for a political Armageddon over who will succeed Ginsburg, The Senate majority leader indicated that the vote will go ahead quickly. He implied that Trump’s nominee for the vacant position would be put to the vote before the election in November.

Therefore, the Democrats will have a complete meltdown. Look at how they behaved during Kavanagh’s confirmation. What will they be like in this current toxic campaign?

3. The Election could be postponed because of the chaos and rage Democrats will rain down on America. We already have a horrendous mail-in ballot issue in this election. It is a system run by people favoring Biden. The Postal Workers Union who will handle the mail have endorsed Biden. Democrats believe the fix is in.

If you know Donald Trump then you know he will have none of it. The entire voting process could be mired in lawsuits. We may not know who is President until next year.

What does this all mean? Something devastating and destructive? Actually, I feel just the opposite. The corrupt, criminal enterprise that is the Democrat Party and the Left needs to reach critical mass, and America needs to witness the destructive and evil crescendo.

But my final hope is in the chorus of prayer that is rising to heaven from all over our nation. Repentance, even from a remnant, avails much. We must bathe the next 46 days before the election in prayer. And vote for Trump!

I do not wish either looting, fires, or violent mobs on anyone. I despise their behavior. But perhaps when the behavior of these thugs—the thugs who are both out on the street as well as in the halls of power—is so blatant that the fake news can no longer hide it, America will conclude once and for all that the Democrat Party is utterly repugnant and unredeemable.

Let God arise, and His enemies be scattered!

TRYING TO WAKE UP THE CHURCH

For many, it is their familiar nightmare. The house is on fire and as they rush to warn the family, something makes their legs move in slow motion.  They shout, but their voice is muffled. Reaching the bedrooms, they face a new horror. They shake people in their beds but, no matter what they do, they can’t wake them up. Smoke overwhelms the room and then flames engulf the house.  The dreamer wakes up shouting.

That is the feeling many preachers, prophets, and Christians who have had their eyes opened by the Holy Spirit are experiencing right now. They are trying to wake up the church, but they find themselves in a living nightmare. They discover that the majority of believers in America seem to be fast asleep.

It was a painful video for me to watch. A well-known pastor was interviewing his respected guest. That guest travels across our nation trying to take the pulse of the American church. To do this he visits a different church every Sunday.

Speaking emphatically, on the brink of tears, he said that there is no urgency coming from pulpits. He didn’t find a single church where the people were being warned. He saw few calls for repentance and even fewer pastors urging congregants to vote, and no alerting people from the pulpit to the reality of America’s imminent destruction.

What the majority of the church is listening to ignores reality completely.  Even worse, we punish vessels of God for warning us. The voices that are moved by the Holy Spirit to wake up the church are living out the nightmare of the burning house.

Using the story of David and Goliath, I want to show you how we shame voices that call us to repent.

David brought lunch to his brothers, but he couldn’t believe what he was seeing and hearing. Goliath was insulting the armies of God. Then David’s older brother, Eliab, shamed him for the look of outrage on his face. “…Eliab’s anger was aroused against David, and he said, “Why did you come down here? And with whom have you left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know your pride and the insolence of your heart, for you have come down to see the battle”” (1 Samuel 17: 28).

A Christian who is under conviction must discredit the voice calling for repentance. He will accuse those voices that warn the church of pride, insolence, and a morbid mind, saying, “You are just condemning us. Things aren’t as bad as you say. You are just obsessed with negative things.”

Eliab totally misread his kid brother. David had a completely righteous reaction to a disgusting lack of urgency and a cowardly betrayal of the Word of God. Israel stood paralyzed before a foul-mouthed God- hater who needed to be dispatched with haste.

David’s outrage was also directed at how passive and compliant Israel was. Nobody wanted to step up. I have got to say that I too am disgusted at how sheepish preachers are in America.

David’s anger was further fueled because he knew the Lord his God. He knew that all God needed was one man, one truly willing vessel to turn this tragedy into triumph. He could not believe that Israel was allowing this outrage to go on this long and this far.

American Christians have also let it go too far for too long, and now they face the prospect of paying for their apathy with their very lives. The world that Obama, Soros and other enemies of freedom are attempting to manipulate into existence would have, long before now, caused our early settlers to roar out in anger, “I would rather die on my feet, than live on my knees!”

We are shaming the very voices we need to hear. We are rewarding the preachers who are killing us. We are punishing people for obeying God, and doing that puts you in direct opposition to God.

Trump can still lose.

There, I said it. Those who are relying on promises of his reelection, but are taking no drastic action to wake up the rest of the church, are no better than the masses of believers who are fast asleep.

But, enough talk. It is time for action.

To those of you who are punishing the voices that have been sent from God, I issue this solemn warning: You are standing in the way of an aggressive God Who has rolled up His sleeves, and is working to spare America. It is far safer for you to take a nap on the tracks in front of a speeding locomotive.

To all of my fellow warriors who are awake: You have the same heart for America that David had for Israel. You are giant killers. You exist in numbers that are more than enough to undo the damage caused by leftist atheists. You are so much more than enough, that, like David, you don’t need to wait for anyone.

Let’s go get these devils!

THE LEFT IS VICIOUSLY ATTACKING FRANKLIN GRAHAM AND TRYING TO MAKE IT LOOK CHRISTIAN

When you read the headline that “10,000 Christians” signed a petition to remove Franklin Graham from the ministry, what did you think? Did you get the impression that he had done some great evil—and many of his supporters want him out?

The fake news media squealed with delight as they spread this story. But the headline is very misleading. This vicious attack—sneaking in under a “Christian” banner—is just slander. How do I know this? Well, wait until you hear who organized the petition.

The group is called Faithful America. How do I put this lovingly? Faithful America has a very twisted view of what Jesus taught. For instance they believe that you—yeah, I am talking about you—are immoral for supporting President Trump. Think of them this way: They are to Christianity what the Flat Earth Society is to geography.

Though called ‘Faithful America’, this group is–in my opinion–neither faithful nor American.

Here’s what they say about themselves on their website: “We work together for immigrant and refugee rights, climate justice, and full LGBTQ inclusion, among other important social, economic, and racial justice causes that reflect the values Jesus taught.” Their reflection is coming from a broken mirror. Certainly not the Bible.

Now you know why the petition got a lot of signatures…it’s not just leftist-Christians, but anti-God, Trump haters jumping on the bandwagon.

Here is the crime they said Franklin Graham committed: “The final night of the 2020 Republican convention began with a partisan appearance from notoriously homophobic preacher Franklin Graham, who prayed, ‘“I thank you tonight for our President, Donald J. Trump…in the mighty name of your Son.”’

Franklin has been totally silent about this petition. I know why. He shouldn’t answer questions about this any more than he should answer questions about unicorns.

So then why am I commenting?

First, because we need to stand with Franklin Graham. He is a heroic figure in our nation and the world. He has endured a walk of faith few of us will ever understand. I can’t imagine stepping into his father’s shoes, as he has. He has handled it better than any human since Joshua replaced Moses.

Franklin Graham had the Biblical understanding, courage, and discernment to go against the grain of lukewarm and false Christianity, and to take a very unpopular but necessary stand. I thank God for Franklin because he has acquitted himself with grace, courage, and integrity. Franklin has done God, his dad, and all of us proud. And he continues to do it every day in many unsung ways.

His Samaritan’s Purse International Disaster Relief and World Medical Mission have touched the lives of tens of thousands, here and around the world. They bring food, medicine, doctors and nurses to disaster sites. Their Operation Christmas Child provides gifts for the needy. Operation Heal Our Patriots provides ministry and services to veterans. Issues such as clean water, hygiene, sanitation, nutrition, discipleship and many other outreaches can be seen at: https://www.samaritanspurse.org/

Check it out and support it!

Also, go to Franklin Graham’s Facebook page and sign up to receive his posts. They are timely and anointed: https://www.facebook.com/FranklinGraham/

I am going to ask you to share this blog because, maybe, in some small way, it could be a part of a groundswell of support and encouragement for this man who has been sent forth from God. Your comments are also appreciated.

 

 

 

 

 

THIS NOVEMBER

In November, you will begin to see the judgment of God fall on America. Strangely, it will be a surgical strike that will devastate some, but will pass over others. There are many voices making similar predictions, but my message to you is about what you should do to prepare for the convulsive events that are nearly upon us. My message to you contains both sobering truth and rock-solid encouragement.

Let’s begin with the most important thing to understand about the impending judgment coming in November: It is because of God’s fierce and firm decision to spare America, and because He has decided to save our nation.

It is a fearful truth, however. Shock waves are required to correct our course. Violent upheavals are a part of His rescue mission.

Who are the targets of God’s judgment? False pastors, politicians, celebrities, and cultural influencers. Why are they to be targeted? Because they are the ones responsible for calling down the destruction of our nation. They have shaken their fists at God and boasted that they are going to build an America that hates our Judeo-Christian roots.

Jehovah who has, in the past, winked at their debauchery, has now fixed a deadline for the end of their activities.

A forerunner to this judgment is Donald Trump. While he has been a blessing to the righteous, he has been a scourge to the God-haters. They cannot explain his effectiveness. They cannot understand why they cannot stop him. They are baffled that every attempt to destroy him has backfired.

The architects of a godless America will now see the same force that has kept President Trump from being destroyed, descending in judgment on their empires. Dismiss me if you will, but consider this: What if you see false preachers taken, even while they are speaking their pernicious doctrines? What if billionaires who are seemingly impervious to bankruptcy, are suddenly wiped out? What if nations that are the avowed enemy of America and Israel, suddenly implode economically or by convulsions in nature?

The pandemic and the mass rioting are but the initial birth pangs of this occasion.

Convulsions are indeed coming, but God wants you, the righteous core who are His beloved, to not only endure, but to thrive as a result of this event.

What should you do to be ready for November?

1. Don’t be deceived. As Jesus watched the Twelve admiring the buildings in Jerusalem, He told them that they would all be destroyed, until not one brick would be left on top of another.

So, they asked when this would happen. Matthew 24:3, “Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be?”” They wanted Jesus to give them a date, so they could be prepared. They were only thinking in the natural, and that is the wrong way to prepare.

The question they should have asked is, “How should I prepare?” Jesus’ answer is very telling. He said, “Take heed that no one deceives you” (Mt. 24:4).

The most important gift in this hour is discernment. Satan is bombarding the church with conflicting opinions that range from apathy to outright terror. Neither extreme is the truth! This downpour of opinions is designed by hell to destroy God’s people. 

 

The overuse of hyper-grace and prophetic “words” is by design. The omitting of the Bible and sound teaching is by design. They have come to deceive and render the people of God powerless, prior to the coming storm. Therefore, we must love truth—not foolishness!

 

2. Prepare, but do not panic. God knew this was coming. He is not surprised and He is never fooled. The child of God must remember that their greatest safety is in being right with God. Those who would make you panic, have not been sent from the Lord.

It is important to understand that if you have been seeking God all along, that is, if you are pressing in to know Him and please Him, you have been preparing, even without realizing it. Your safety is already in place.  Matthew 24:6, “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”

3. The righteous will be spared this November by a special intimacy with the Lord, a special clarity of His voice that will lead to special instructions and a special refuge from the coming judgment.

Isaiah 26:20-21, “Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, until the indignation is past. For behold, the Lord comes out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; the earth will also disclose her blood, and will no more cover her slain.”

 

This verse is so rich, that I will end this message by unpacking some of its treasure.

-Entering into your chambers is not just a room, a bomb shelter or the cabin in the mountains. It is a place in God—a place that makes you disaster-proof, as David wrote in Psalm 41:1, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

-Closing the door behind you means you shut out all of the toxins of this age. It means you slam the door on fear and confusion and every person or vile thing that tries to undermine your relationship with Jesus. When you hear that door slam, a genuine peace and power will clothe you.

-“Hide yourself” is both literal and figurative. God will instruct you on what to buy to be ready and what not to waste your money on. You will hide wisely. Proverbs 22:3, “A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.”

Indeed, God is coming out of His place to punish, but from the spiritual and physical fortress God will make with you, you will hear and maybe even see it, but judgment will pass over you. Just as in the judgment on Egypt, there was darkness where the Egyptians were, but it was light in Goshen where the people of God were living (see Exodus 10:22-23).

Always rest in this promise, “A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you behold, and see the reward of the wicked” (Psalm 91:7-8).

THE BIBLE DOES NOT TELL YOU TO OBEY EVIL LAWS

It’s time  to wake up to the sad truth that Democrat Mayors and Governors have declared war. No only on the church but on innocent citizens. This war compels believers to look again at what the Bible says about evil laws and evil leaders.

Democrats, after using the “Pandemic” as an excuse to illegally lockdown the church, have graduated to condoning riots, looting, and now murder in the name of racial justice. At first, I thought they were testing to see how the public reacts. This no longer explains it. Biden’s poll numbers are dropping because Democrat leaders refuse to take action against the domestic terrorism of Black Lives Matter and Antifa. What we have now is a simple case of stubborn madness.

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).

EVERYTHING IS IN DANGER

 

“This towering American spirit has prevailed over every challenge, and lifted us to the summit of human endeavor.  And yet despite all of our greatness as a nation, everything we have achieved is now in danger.” –Donald J. Trump

Was Trump exaggerating when he said that Biden has put everything America has achieved in danger? I would give almost anything for that not to be true. Tragically, it is utterly true. It is painfully true. It is undeniably true.

How can it be possible that if we do not stop Joe Biden, it means the end of America as we know it? And let’s be very clear about one thing: The only way you stop Biden is by voting for Trump. Everything else helps elect Biden, and by default, helps destroy this great nation.

Many Christians love to say wispy things like, “The church must stay out of politics.” Or they say, “We shouldn’t choose sides.” But since Trump is God’s rescue plan for America, if you refuse to vote for him, you have chosen a side—a very dark side. In my view, you are choosing against God.

Think about it. How can Trump’s personality flaws hold a candle to the blatant evil of the Democrat Party? Were you there when the former Planned Parenthood worker described standing in abject horror as she watched an abortion live on screen? A fully formed fetus is fighting with all of its might to get away from the suction device. The doctor finally catches the fetus and exclaims, “Beam me up, Scotty.”

How can you sit idly by, and allow such callous murder as this to go on? Thousands of years ago, God foresaw suction abortion and commanded us, “Deliver those who are drawn toward death, and rescue those who are being led to the slaughter. If you say, “Surely we did not know this,” does not He who weighs the hearts consider it?  He who keeps your soul, does He not know it?  And will He not render to each man according to his deeds?” (Proverbs 24:11-12)

And how can the Democrat Party dare to judge anything in our past history, when they are advancing the most barbaric atrocities in our history? They say we are guilty and must pay for our past sins, even as they practice the greatest sin we have ever committed.

And you, my undecided Christian—how will you explain to God that you had the power to vote and end this holocaust, but you couldn’t get past Trump’s personality?  And, by the way, the abortion holocaust will surely rain down the judgment of God on America, just as it did on Nazi Germany.

Then there is Antifa and Black Lives Matter. They are the armed militia of the Democrat Party. We know this because during their entire reign of terror, the Democrats—who control the cities where they loot and burn—have made no move to stop them. All mayors Lightfoot of Chicago and Jenny Durkan of Seattle said was “keep them away from my house.” Choosing, instead, to let innocent Americans, trapped in these neighborhoods, live in terror.

President Trump said, “During their convention, Joe Biden and his supporters remained completely silent about the rioters and criminals spreading mayhem in Democrat-run cities.  They never even mentioned it during their entire convention. Never once mentioned.  In the face of left-wing anarchy and mayhem in Minneapolis, Chicago and other cities, Joe Biden’s campaign did not condemn it.  They donated to it.  At least 13 members of Joe Biden’s campaign staff donated to a fund to bail out vandals, arsonists, anarchists, looters and rioters from jail.”  

Don’t try to salve your conscience by thinking you are helpless to do anything about this. Trump will restore law and order once he has the mandate of reelection. You simply can’t say that you want mob rule in our streets ended, unless you vote for Trump.

Democrats despise America and will run it into the ground, just as their mayors and governors are allowing rioters to run their states and cities down into smoldering ruins. Their convention proved it. This begs the question, “How can we put them in charge of America?” President Trump put it this way: “At the Democrat National Convention, Joe Biden and his party repeatedly assailed America as a land of racial, economic and social injustice.  So tonight, I ask you a simple question:  How can the Democrat Party ask to lead our country when it spends so much time tearing down our country?”  

If, somehow, I have still not gotten through to you, let me finish with this: Joe Biden is a Trojan horse. He is a hollowed out wooden soul that will do anything and everything that the radical Socialist wing of the Democrat Party tells him to do.

Again, President Trump said, “Joe Biden’s campaign has even published a 110-page policy platform, you can’t get away from this.  Coauthored with far-left senator, crazy Bernie Sanders. The Biden/ Bernie Manifesto calls for suspending all removals of illegal aliens, implementing nationwide catch and release and providing illegal aliens with free, taxpayer-funded lawyers.

“Make no mistake, if you give power to Joe Biden, the radical left will defund police departments all across America.  They will pass federal legislation to reduce law enforcement nationwide.  They will make every city look like Democrat-run Portland, Oregon. No one will be safe in a Biden America.”

WHEN PEOPLE DESPISE THEIR OWN DELIVERANCE

It’s a real movement and there are even real t-shirts you can buy. They say things like, “Christians Against Trump” or “Loyal To Christ Not Trump.” Presumably, if they are Christians who are against Trump, they are also against the Christians who are for Trump. I am not trying to be technical, it’s just a fact. The reason I begin with that, is so you will know that I am not picking on them—they are picking on us.

They are saying and doing things against believers who support Trump and I find that disgraceful. It is one thing to disagree with Trump, but quite another to impugn the character of Trump supporters.

Since there is nothing uglier than a family fight, I am writing this under extreme duress and with reluctance. However, the situation is too grave to allow this attack to go unanswered.

What is wrong with these people? Let me answer that by introducing you to a personality type that is in sad abundance today: The ‘nattering nabob.’ These are people who suddenly and inexplicably turn against their own convictions just so they will look good to the other side. These three prominent men qualify currently: George W. Bush, Mitt Romney, and John Kasich.

Nattering Nabobs spout a lot of words, but you can’t follow them or make any sense of their diatribes. Today they are adamantly for what they were adamantly against, yesterday. And, as of now, they are vehemently opposed to what they were vehemently in favor of ten minutes ago.  They make nonsensical arguments and feel exhilarated, while everyone else in the room looks on with bewilderment and, in many cases, pity.

The most classic feature of a nattering nabob, is that they have a complaint and a rant, but they provide no alternative for the problem. Incredulously, Bush is going to vote for Biden. Mitt Romney actually voted for the impeachment of Trump, and John Kasich, a Republican in name only, humiliated himself at the Democrat Convention by pandering to the enemies of freedom.

Underneath all their pomp is a hidden motive. Trump, in their view, has done them wrong. Bush saw his brother bashed. That means he can,  with a clear conscience, support the socialist apocalypse and late term abortion he once hated. Mitt Romney, was snubbed by Trump, so he now feels justified in going against his former convictions. John Kasich is by far the saddest. His resentment gave way to a delirium where he is the only one in the room that doesn’t know how pathetic and ludicrous he is.

The same thing applies to these believers who bought the t-shirt. The most interesting thing about them comes when you ask them what they think is the alternative to Biden. They know the horror he represents. They know Biden celebrates everything a believer should find abhorrent. When you confront the “woke believer” for a solution to the problem, look closely and see if they don’t suddenly remind you of the times when Captain Kirk outsmarted an enemy computer that began to smoke and exclaim, “It does not compute!” Or you will hear ethereal platitudes better fit for a lecture on unicorns.

I get it. You find Trump offensive, my brother and sister in the Lord. I also get the cheap and easy acceptance readily available from the Left, and the stigma attached to standing against peer pressure.

But remember, President Trump stands with all evangelical Christians and supports Israel. He deserves your support. Why would you side with the enemies of America and God by voting against him?

I am not saying that Trump is a ‘type’ of Christ, but what I am saying is that Christ was a deliverance that the Jews found offensive. When Jesus saw that they despised their own deliverance He wept.

“Now as He drew near, He saw the city and wept over it, saying, “If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side, and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation” Luke 19:41-44).

Can you honestly say you have asked God about Trump?

WHAT IT REALLY MEANS TO VOTE YOUR CONSCIENCE

“I am going to vote my conscience.” More often than not, the person who says that, actually means the opposite. They really mean, “I am going to do what gets me off the hook.” They are appeasing the secular culture that hates Trump.

This need to appease the culture, has created strange hypocrisies. Many American believers now accept same-sex marriage. They know what the Word of God says about sexual immorality, but they also know the price they will pay for openly opposing gay marriage, so they ‘virtue-signal.’ They say all kinds of ethereal sounding words, like being ‘compassionate’ and ‘tolerant,’ so as to look righteous and avoid persecution. Its pure double-talk.

When it comes to Trump, their hypocrisy swings to the other extreme. They go from a lax moral standard, to one that is not just strict—it is impossible. They want a sinless candidate. Sadly, Jesus is not running for office. However, as soon as these hypocrites saw the winds of culture turn against Jesus, they would not even vote for Him.

Isn’t it funny how this sinless standard was never a part of Christian circles until people started hating Trump? All candidates are imperfect, and yet Christians voted for them.

So, what is the honest definition of ‘voting your conscience’? Voting your conscience means to do the right thing. James 4:17 says, “Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.” This is why many who claim to vote their conscience are actually violating their conscience.

The Democrat Party has left no doubt about the evil they mean to do. They want a godless America. They want to kill babies at, and even after, the point of natural birth. They condone riots, looting, and even murder. Every city that Democrats control is a smoldering wreck. Do you want them to control the nation? How can you deny the apocalyptic devastation that would ensue if Joe Biden ever won the presidency?

At this point, if you deny these facts, you are practicing evil—you are an accomplice to evil. To use spiritual camouflage while doing this, only deepens your betrayal of God’s kingdom. It is wickedness.

And don’t forget their radical agenda for your church. It was not a virus, but their venom that shut down your church. They declared war on all churches, long before the pandemic. They are lying about their motives. That’s why churches are closed while big-box stores, casinos, thugs and looters are open for business. They have singled out the church. Do you see what are you doing to your own church by letting them win?

What does it mean to do the right thing? I mean the right thing not only for your church, but for your children and grandchildren? What is the right thing to do? Stop Joe Biden from becoming president.

How do we stop him? There is simply no option, but to pray, and then, vote for Trump. That is the only way you can stop Biden. Voting for some obscure “pure” third candidate is, in reality, a vote for Biden. There is simply no way around it. Yes, you are helping Joe Biden win by not voting for Donald Trump.

Every Pastor who reads this, needs to face their own hypocrisy. You need to do the right thing. You need to stand in your pulpit and instruct the people to register to vote and to cast their vote for Donald Trump.

Please quit hiding behind the discredited notion that you want to keep politics out of the pulpit. This election left the political arena when Democrats veered left and sold themselves to work wickedness.

Not voting, when you can vote, is also evil. Sitting this out is to side with the evildoers. Again, the right thing to do is to stop Joe Biden and the avalanche of socialism that he will bring with him. The only way to stop him is to vote for Donald Trump. It is the right thing to do. Not doing it, is wrong.

Detrick 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.” Now that you know what it truly means to “Vote your conscience,” you know what you must do.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TRUMP MUST DO AT THIS MOMENT

Alert! Facebook is banning this blog. We need your help to get this message out. Apparently, they see it as a threat to Biden’s election.

What a week! China is poised to hit us again. The shutdown continues to destroy lives, businesses, and churches. Revelations about the FBI are devastating. On the streets of Portland, Oregon, left-wing rioters keep burning down the most left-wing city in America. Meanwhile, the nation suffers through a most excruciating, stomach-churning pack of lies and propaganda: The Democratic Convention.

These are only the highlights of what President Donald Trump faces. On top of all of that, he must lead a reelection campaign in a system so rigged against him it boggles the mind.

Antifa and Black Lives Matter were caused by the Democrat Party, and they are in full rebellion against everything American. The Bible says clearly that “rebellion is like the sin of witchcraft” (1 Samuel 15:23), and we are seeing the full-blown rebellion, demonic hatred, violence and anarchy that they have summoned from hell.

Deciding what is the most important thing the President must do at this moment is really hard—but I believe I know what it is. Not only that, but I am also persuaded what the second thing is that he must do, if the first one fails.

Donald Trump and every decent American must do everything in their power right now to prevent a mail-in election. People must go to the polls and vote in person. Absentee ballots are one thing, but a massive vote-by-mail election guarantees tampering and corruption—a corruption Democrats are counting on. It will be impossible for Trump to get a fair count.

Leftist operatives man battle stations throughout the system that will count the votes. I will go so far as to say that mail-in ballots are Joe Biden’s only hope of winning. But the horror extends beyond that. All the votes for the Senate and the House and local elections will also be gamed by this racket.  I have no doubt that the fix is already in, and the only way to stop it is to demand that the courts enforce in-person voting.

The virus is just an excuse for this despicable deception. The church shutdown proves it. If they truly believe that the virus is as dangerous as they say it is, they would not have singled out the church for shutdown and have left big-box stores, bars, casinos, and marijuana outlets open. They used a big fat lie to close down our churches. Why? Because they hate the church.

Now, we see the same lie being used to unleash the most heinous sabotage of our freedoms in American history. The argument that people shouldn’t go to polling places is destroyed by their actions. It’s the ultimate hypocrisy of the Left: leftist protesters—in person on the streets—protesting against in-person voting. How rich is that? 

Think voter fraud is not being planned on a massive scale consider 20,000 fake driver’s licenses…


Mr. President you must combine all of your influence and all of your moral rage to focus on stopping this disaster. Shut it down before it happens with an executive order, and call out the National Guard to oversee the voting process. Everyone who loves America and loves freedom must treat the mail-in election as treason, and consider it as lethal as an armed invasion by a foreign army.

We must fight it in the courts. We must exhaust every avenue to influence rational Americans against this travesty. And if that fails…

But what if ‘that’ does fail and we have a corrupted election? Then we must—all of us—on a scale unknown in world history—repudiate the results and reject the election. Patriotic and God-fearing people—by the millions, must take to the streets if necessary and revolt against the calculated, despotic, banana-republic sham of a mail-in election. Otherwise, America will be lost forever.

Mr. President, do all that is in your heart to do, we are with you in this holy crusade.
