CHRISTIAN LEADERS ARE REPENTING OF BEING WHITE

Some Christian leaders are acting in a very foolish and destructive way—a way that is helping to destroy our nation. More on that in a moment. First let us talk about the relationship of Marxism to racism.

Decent people reject Critical Race Theory because it teaches that white people are inherently evil. It is simple racism. That makes it an important tool for Marxists in their war to destroy America.

Race wars are a reliable weapon in a Marxist revolution—or any totalitarian takeover, for that matter.

Satan was behind the Nazi’s hatred for Jews, not because of anything they had done, but merely for being Jews. Now we have this emerging idea about the “crime of being white.” How is Critical Race Theory any different than what was happening in Germany in the 1930s and 40s?

Chinese Communism identified Christians as evil, demonized the Church, and slaughtered the people of God. In every bloodbath, purge, and act of genocide, whole nations were turned against a specific targeted ethnic, racial or cultural group. In India, it was Muslims. In other countries they slaughtered Buddhists. Turkey hated Armenians. Iraq tried to exterminate the Kurds. Guatemala focused on the Mayans. Rwanda slaughtered the Tutsi. The list goes on and on. How is what is beginning to happen in America any different?

Christian leaders began by apologizing to minorities for the past sins of white people. Fair enough. But that was not enough Wokeness for these leaders, and soon they could find nothing good to say about white people.

They conveniently forgot that the white man was not the primary slave trader in history—not even close.

Now these ministers are repenting for being white. That is not just loony—it is deeply offensive to God in many ways:

-It offends God that you are claiming He made something defective by making you white.

-God is offended by your hypocrisy. The Woke snap their fingers, and instantly you repent of a fabricated sin which they say you have committed, yet you ignore your actual sins: grieving the Holy Spirit—preaching an artificial Gospel—or your silence on abortion and sexual sin.

-Another major offense to God is you grandstanding to get Oprah’s crowd to like you. You are not only being duped, but now you have become a shill for Marxists.

-This is what you have become: a shill who is recruiting others to join you in this madness. Asking someone else to apologize for being white is as odious as asking a black person to repent for being black. It is pure racism.

-Worst of all, you are being used to keep another lie alive. The lie of white supremacy. This is the lie that keeps the heinous Democrat Party in power.

For decades Democrats have had unquestioned power over our inner cities. And what have they done for minorities? What became of the trillions of dollars sent to those places to improve the squalor? Show me a city run by Democrats for decades, and I will show you a city in decay and despair. Blacks suffer under Democrat-supremacy not white supremacy.

On the same weekend when George Floyd was being remembered in cities all over America, 28 murders in the black sections of Chicago went unnoticed. Do black lives really matter to the media? Do they matter to Black Lives Matter?

Shame on these Christians who won’t pray right or repent correctly! What an offense to a heart-broken God Who is trying to save our nation, that you would engage in Pharisaical grandstanding.

But it is not too late! You can turn that pseudo-repentance into true repentance. God can expose the Left, the evil they are doing, and their long-term goals. Right now, America is sick of the division and the hatred—and they do not care anymore where that hatred is coming from. Americans do not want to replace old hate with new hate, or old racism with new racism.

The only force that is able to save America is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The only love that can stop the crushing cycle of oppression and hatred is the love of God. My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, now that you realize your need for repenting…for God’s sake, do not repent for being white, repent for sinning against the Lord!

As God told Israel: “If you will return to Me, and if you will put away your abominable false gods out of My sight and not stray or waver, and if you swear, As the Lord lives, in truth, in justice, and in righteousness, then the nations will bless themselves in Him and in Him will they glory” (Jeremiah 4:1-2).

COMING SOON: A NEW KIND OF CHRISTIAN LEADER

Remember when I told you this…a new kind of Christian leader will soon appear on the American stage. They will not fit any present mold. They will be the catalysts. They will usher in the next great awakening. They will appear because conditions will demand their appearance. Consider how the coronavirus can be the pretext to change the very way churches and ministries operate. Even to the point of banning public gatherings. In the next few years, you will likely see social media virtually remove all preaching. Not only that, but there will be a concerted effort to marginalize the church in ways you never imagined. Does that mean that Bible-based Christianity is over in America? Absolutely not!

You watch: God will come out of nowhere to meet this threat. A big difference you will see in the coming leaders is where they serve. A few of them will be in pulpits. More of them will be in politics, business, science, law, entertainment, music, or a thousand other fields of endeavor.  They will not introduce subjects—they will introduce eras.    No one will be able to buy them off or get them to change the subject. They will operate on a disquieting plane of holiness and consecration. I believe A. W. Tozer was describing them when he said, “They serve God and mankind from motives too high to be understood by the rank and file of religious retainers who today shuttle in and out of the sanctuary.”

Today they suffer. Their agony is what happens when worlds collide. They see their destiny. It’s big and dangerous. A part of them glories in the potential to know God intimately and represent Him bravely. They see themselves rebuking kings, tyrants, and warmongers. They see themselves commanding the transfer of the wealth of the wicked into the control of the righteous. (Is. 60:5)  

God is warring to save America. You must find your assignment in that war. But how can we know our assignment? The secret to finding your assignment is your heart. God speaks to the heart and then the heart must control the mind. Today, many spirit-filled believers are unwittingly involved in New Age practices. They relate to God as if He were some kind of ‘force’ rather than a Person. They think that audacity and confidence will unlock gifts, authority, and direction. They speak of “activating gifts” as if there was a formula to supernatural manifestations. My friend, it comes through brokenness, not arrogance. The ‘force’ is a farce. The gifts and anointing of the Holy Spirit always come through relationship. Sorry, but Christianity has always been, and always will be, family owned and operated. So then how can we know our assignment?

Your assignment in the Army of God is your individual expression and extension of Christ’s destruction of the works of the devil. You are a destroyer of the works of the devil. God will give you a way to do it that is unique to you. Until that gets through to you—until you admit and agree to those terms—God will remain silent about your assignment. Because the situation today in America is an impossible one, only one kind of person will make a difference now. They must be armed with divine certainty. They must own an unshakable, bone-deep conviction that they have been chosen for this task. Without this, we have zero hope of removing the bloody talons of Satan from the throat of our nation. Without it, we are doomed to another embarrassing misfire, pawned off as revival.

Next, you must face the fact that very few believers are supposed to be teachers, preachers, or pastors (see James 3:1). For too long, we have listened to the voice of God through a filter. In the past, whenever God has moved someone to serve Him, we have assumed it meant ‘ministry.’ This assumption of ministry has sent many Christians to Bible College who didn’t belong there. Worse yet, it has filled pulpits with people who should have never been ordained. This reminds me of why President Woodrow Wilson once said, “One of the proofs of the divinity of the Gospel is the preaching it has survived.”

This filtered view of service is one big reason the church lost influence in our nation. God tried to send people into education, law, medicine, business, art, media, and yes, even politics−but instead, we herded them into “Christian service.” You see it in the Bible. You see it in the stories of heroes of faith throughout history who altered the course of their generation. At the dawn of their mission, God infused them with incontestable certainty. This certainty plays a critical role in their survival.

Think of it like the escape velocity of a rocket. Escape velocity is one of the biggest challenges of space travel. In order for a rocket to break free of the Earth’s gravitational force it must reach a speed of seven miles per second. That’s 25,000 miles per hour! Evil convulses at the approach of a new vessel of God. Hell instantly puts chosen ones on a hit list. The child of God must be blasted by divine certainty into a trajectory that will escape the pull of devils, the seduction of fame, withering criticism, and the dark night of the soul that comes to all who are called of God. From his death bed, John Wesley wrote his last letter to William Wilberforce to encourage him as he fought in Parliament to abolish slavery in England. In this letter, Wesley confirms the urgency of divine certainty: “Unless God has raised you up for this very thing, you will be worn out by the opposition of men and devils. But if God be for you, who can be against you?  Are all of them together stronger than God? O be not weary of well doing!

Go on, in the name of God and in the power of his might…” Understand this child of God! The same Spirit that is awakening a passion and direction in you is doing the same thing to millions more. Soon an army will emerge that will invade every area of our culture. Today it is sporadic fire, here and there, but soon the prophetic core of God will obey and embrace their assignment. They will come together in a chorus of victory that will be unlike anything we have ever seen. Never forget, Christianity will survive without America−but America will not survive without Christianity.

DO YOU KNOW WHEN AND WHEN NOT TO SUBMIT TO GOVERNMENT?

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.

If we don’t realize this now, we will 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 man wrote me the definitive blurb on false submission. 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. “Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with You—they who frame and hide their unrighteous doings under [the sacred name of] law?” (Psalm 94:20). There is your answer. A corrupt throne (government) cannot be allied with God. He cannot have fellowship with it. 

When a government creates evil laws God cannot be allied it—because evil laws are the worst form of wickedness.

 They are damnable because they give 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).

PRAY FOR MODESTO!

WHY I HAVE CHANGED THE WAY I PRAY FOR AMERICA

Let me ask you a question. How is it possible for Biden to do and say the things he does, with little or no backlash from America? We are watching the single fastest decline in the history of this nation, ever, and it is all a result of its current leader.

Biden makes everything about race. He blurts out lies with impunity. Yet, for all of the catastrophic decisions that have come from the evil that resides in the White House, there is seemingly no consequence to him or his team.

The same lack of accountability applies to the media that is acting in concert with Biden. As are the ‘woke’ corporations that regularly commit grievous crimes against innocent people, and Silicon Valley which is obliterating decency. The inmates are running the asylum.

I saw a taste of this under Obama’s sad presidency, but it was nothing like what we see to today.

Sky News Australia reported this: “President Joe Biden’s administration is keeping the “racial narrative” going because it is the “biggest smoke screen” to all its policies, according to US political commentator Benji Irby. Mr. Irby told Sky News the country under Joe Biden at the moment is “absolutely horrible”. “The country is way more racialized than usual; everything’s about race,” he said. “Everybody’s concerned about all types of slights and micro aggressions and the left are really taking over everything. “We’re in really bad straits here, it’s not very good”.

Mr. Irby went on to say, “The left and the Biden administration are fueling racial tensions and using it as a smokescreen. No one’s ask asking about Hunter Biden and this new gun scandal, no one’s asking about Joe Biden being bought and sold by China. ‘No one’s talking about the fact that China now has a larger navy than the US, and that China is making moves towards Taiwan, and is taking over our country as far as business is concerned. ‘We’re so busy enthralled in race, enthralled in fighting one another.’”

I had to go to God to ask for help. I write almost every day to warn people. I explain to leaders what we must do to counteract the bombardment of filth and falsehood that is showering down on us. But, most of all, I prayed.

I knew there was something more that I could do. I knew I had to learn a better way to fight back against this indefinable evil. Then I got my answer from the Lord, “I want you to change the way you pray.”

The Holy Spirit let me see the demonic hedge of protection around Biden and the leftist agenda. This hedge is what is blinding millions. It is dulling the natural sense of danger and outrage that America should be feeling right now.

The America we once knew is under a spell. The focus of our prayers must shift to a declaration of war against those devils. We must cast them down. The Bible says we can. We can do it by preaching. We can do it by casting out devils. But our greatest weapon is to tear down this hedge with intercessory warfare.

Here are our key verses: 2 Corinthians 10:4-5, “For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds, [inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One)”

I took those verses as a direct promise that the body of Christ has authority over the Biden hedge of protection. I felt a strange confidence and I felt faith rising within me. I found myself asking and declaring specific things. I raised my hands to heaven and began to say, “The weapons I am using now will tear down strongholds!” I believe the power of God will move through prayer—mighty prayer:

1. To confuse the media. Just as God came down and confused the languages at the tower of Babel, I declare that confusion and division will come between the leftist powers in the media and government.

2. To derail the agenda of the Democrats, ‘woke’ billionaires, and China. According to 2 Chronicles 20:22-23, “Now when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated. For the people of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir to utterly kill and destroy them.  And when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, they helped to destroy one another.”

3. To bring greater fire into the hearts of vessels of God as well as terrifying conviction upon lukewarm preachers, until the church rises as one voice to rebuke the workers of iniquity for their depravity.

Will this kind of prayer work? In Exodus 17, we see the model. Joshua went down to the battle, while Moses went up to the heights over the battle and raised the rod of God. Aaron and Hur helped to hold up his arms, until the battle was won.

Moses was cutting off the demonic confidence of the Amalekites, just as cutting off the hedge of protection of the ongoing evil is how my prayer is now targeted.

This is no time to cave in to fear and anger. This is not time to fret about the future of our nation. This is the time to remember an old familiar friend: prayer. And not only that, but to see anew the power that resides in prayer. Let us unlock the power of this old friend to tear down impossible strongholds. We must funnel all the energy that you used to expend worrying and being angry over the evil in our nation, into a new way to pray for America.

Join me in prayer and, together with Lord of the Armies of Heaven, let’s tear down these strongholds!

PRAY FOR MODESTO!

HAVE YOU TOLD YOUR YOUNG DAUGHTER HOW DEMOCRATS WANT TO ERASE WOMEN?

Why does anyone want biological males competing against women? How is that equality? How can anyone say this will not destroy women’s sports? What will it look like when a biological male is the reigning champion in every category of sports for women?

And finally, how will you explain to your young daughter, who dreams of being a champion, that she will have to compete with a man?

The Left will tell you that this kind of a total takeover of women’s sports is impossible, because of the statistical rarity of transgender women. But they are wrong and they know it.

All of a sudden, 25% of our youth “expect to change their gender identity at least once during their lifetime.” https://hbr.org/2020/04/companies-cant-ignore-shifting-gender-norms

Why such a spike? Because, I believe the Left are not trying to protect transgender women—they are trying to recruit them.

If the Equality Act becomes the law of the land, it will make it criminal discrimination to believe that biology determines gender. They want our children to believe gender is based on feelings. Once that is codified, leftist teachers will prey on the feelings of our children.

They are also trying to make being transgender cool—not just equal. By making transgender cool, they add another devastating weapon: peer pressure. How many of our children are acting out gender dysphoria just to win peer approval in school and on social media?

The real target is womanhood and the consequence will be to erase women altogether. 

But these disturbing facts are not the real message of this blog. It is something just as disturbing—something you and I have some control over, and we need to see the real disaster here.

The other day I saw this headline, “57 black pastors warn Democrat Senators not to pass the Equality Act.” How is that even a headline? There should have been 10,000 black pastors warning the Senate. There should have been at least 200,000 American pastors of all colors warning the Senate.

Only 57 Black Pastors warning the Senate is not a headline. It is an indictment. It would be like this headline: “City burns down. 12 firemen show up.”

We need to stop looking at the leftist media, the Grammys, or Democrats for the true symptom of our national sickness. The real symptom is the silence in the pulpit. The disheartening, disgusting, inexcusable moral paralysis that delays leaders from forming the unity and purpose we need to stop these wicked leaders—that is the crime of our century.

And the Equality Act is only a small fragment of what we should be outraged at. A vast and vicious lie has covered America like locusts, and most sermons are filled with fluff. Your messages are not hitting anywhere near that lie. There was a day when, perhaps, your lukewarm messages could be considered harmless, even mildly amusing. But today they are an unspeakable betrayal.

Charles Finney said, “Brethren, our preaching will bear its legitimate fruits.

If immorality prevails in the land, the fault is ours in a great degree.

If there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is responsible for it.

If the public press lacks moral discrimination, the pulpit is responsible for it.

If the church is degenerate and worldly, the pulpit is responsible for it.

If the world loses its interest in religion, the pulpit is responsible for it.

If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it.

If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it. Let us not ignore this fact, my dear brethren; but let us lay it to heart, and be thoroughly awake to our responsibility in respect to the morals of this nation.”

The leftists of America have jumped the fence and invaded the domain of the First Amendment. They have demanded that you surrender your faith, your freedom—and God help you—YOUR PEOPLE! 

And why is there no reaction?

For the sake of everything decent, why can’t the men and women of God in America realize that the general alarm is sounding? It demands nothing less than an overwhelming and uncompromising repudiation of this presidency! It demands a nationwide rejection of the vile curriculum in our schools. It demands a revolt so deep and complete that the media will fear us. A revolt so widespread that there will simply be too many of us for them to stop.

What level of horror will it take to rouse you to your duty? Perhaps that horror will be when your own people rise on their own. The millions of members who have faithfully and patiently waited for you to lead them.

And what if a Christian populist movement rises and finally decides they can’t wait for you anymore? What if they all stampede out your door, and go to other churches—churches that are seeking God for the revival and a divine counteroffensive against the political devils who seek to destroy both America and the Church?

Do not laugh. I am seeing it everywhere. Preachers are renting halls, schools, and some are meeting in open fields. Crowds are forming in places no one ever expected. Fire is coming from the mouths of average Christians on the street. The people of the Lord are becoming willing volunteers in the day of God’s power!

How do you tell your young daughter that Democrats want to erase women? How do you assure her that you are doing all you can to protect her? You say, “Darling, this is America. And I will, with everything that is within me, and by the mighty weapons of God, do whatever it takes to destroy this evil lie!”

They say that when small men cast large shadows, you know the sun is about to set. Similarly, because the daylight of decency is about to set, small men like Bezos, Soros, Zuckerberg, Dorsey, and Obama are also casting large shadows. Sorry if that offends you, but they are all small men.

“Surely men of low degree are a vapor, men of high degree are a lie; if they are weighed in the balances, they are altogether lighter than vapor.” –Psalm 62:9

The only men who are smaller, are the even smaller men who work for them. Biden and Fauci immediately leap to mind.

But it is not these pipsqueaks who are driving me crazy. And it is not even their outsized power that vexes me. What truly makes me angry, and sad, is that all we need to stop them are real American heroes.

In fact, there is nothing evil going on in America that could not be stopped by men and women of daring. Seneca said, “It is not because the times are dangerous that men do not dare, it is because men do not dare that the times are dangerous.”

Instead of Christian leaders who dare, we have a pandemic of self-pity and timidity. American preachers used to be reformers and agents of change. Today, we have performers who have agents. They will take no stand that might cost them tithing members, bookings or product sales.

Never has a nation had so many ministers who are doing so much that does not matter, for so few. Never has the arsenal of the weapons of the Kingdom of God been left to gather cobwebs for so long. Never has fear been such a guiding force in the choices of preachers.

We never used to scare this easily. The government would not dare lockdown the churches of the preachers we used to have. Never have so many with such advanced degrees been so remedial in their grasp of what is urgent.

What is wrong with us? We are crippled by the fear of greatness. And we have confused popularity with greatness. A large church is not greatness. Being a mascot for the rich and famous is not greatness. Satan laughs at our idea of success. He does not respect sermons that merely entertain a tame audience. He only respects and fears disciples—men and women sent from God, anointed by God with conviction and authority who are ready to obey the marching orders of the Holy Spirit.

The Bible clearly reveals that we serve an awesome God. His awesomeness has transformed weak men and women into world-changers. America can once again have lions in the pulpits. We can own the roar that will stem the tide of immorality.

Open your heart to the truth! Every vessel of God is, right now, standing at a fork in the road. On the right is the path of greatness. On the left is a wide and convenient path. On your right all you see is sacrifice, warfare, and intense resistance. To your left is a downward path. To your right is a steep and treacherous climb, leading upward. But you know that that climb means you are going to a new level—your next level.

So then, what is the secret? The secret to greatness is pain. The absolute truth about you and greatness is in this phrase: When the pain of being average becomes more intense than your fear of greatness, you will go to your next level. Greatness.

SUPPORTING TRUMP WILL NOT RUIN MY WITNESS

One of the arguments made by the editor of Christianity Today Magazine was that supporting Trump ruined our witness to America. No one yearns to win souls more than I do, therefore, I will tackle this argument, beginning with a story that seems to be analogous.

After the United States Army liberated the German concentration camps, General Eisenhower viewed the incomprehensible horror. His reaction was to make every soldier in the area come and see it for themselves.

When he was asked why he had subjected these men to such savagery and why he forced them to view images which they could never wash from their minds, he said this, “We are told that the American soldier does not know what he was fighting for. Now, at least he will know what he is fighting against.”

Millions of Christians look at Trump and see a man who is not perfect. He is not their model of a true believer. They reject him because they know what they are striving for: gentleness, civility and increased church attendance. What they do not know is what they are fighting against.

I know this, because whenever they attack Trump they offer no alternative for the office of President. They can’t tell you who else they would rather vote for. Or they assume it doesn’t matter if Democrats win. They only know they are offended by Trump’s behavior. But how does his behavior appear when compared to the horror of what the Left will do to this nation?

No doubt American soldiers had heard of the atrocities committed by Hitler and the Nazis, but they had not witnessed it first-hand. That is, not until they saw with their own eyes the ovens, the mountains of bones, and hundreds of rotting corpses.

Likewise, it is one thing to see leftists selling candles that say “Abortions are magical” and quite another to witness a baby being dismembered in an abortion clinic.  Or to see a baby survive an abortion and then overhear an impossibly inhuman conversation, such as, “We’ll keep it comfortable until the doctor and the mother can decide what to do next.”  How worried are you now, about how ‘rude’ Trump appears?

Does it ruin my altar calls in the tent when I support President Trump? Please, don’t reveal your ignorance if you don’t realize what an inner city is actually like. It is a cruel, disgraceful, soul-crushing place. And it’s the total property and legacy of the Left. They have crushed all decency in every city they control.  Hopes and dreams die daily on an unprecedented scale.

California’s inner cities scream of injustice and abhorrent abuse. Not only is the machinery of government not stopping homelessness—they are actually causing it!

When I stand in the tent and proclaim the miracle of new life in Jesus, I declare the hope, the power, and the love that awaits them. I challenge them to break free. Of course, they need to be freed from sin. They need to be freed from addictions. But they also must be set free from something else.

It’s a funny thing that no one in the church attacked me when I preached against heroin. No one criticized my messages against violent gangs. But when, by the Holy Spirit, I identified a drug worse than meth, which is socialism, and a gang worse than MS-13, the baby slaughtering, corrupt, Left, suddenly I was surrounded by timid souls who tried to hide behind empty platitudes.

Will supporting Trump ruin my witness? Not for the masses who crowd our altars for Jesus. They couldn’t care less about political correctness.

Wake up Christian! Don’t be like those reluctant recruits who served under Patton and hated him because they thought him a crude and nasty leader but they  forgot the monster he was trying to kill. Be honest! Do you not see the blatant abuse of power? Do you not see how power is being centralized under tyrants who hate God, who hate freedom, hate your faith, and want to dominate your children’s future?  Can you not see how vicious they are, how deviant they are and how determined they are to manipulate every aspect of American life?

I never neglect to preach a scripture-laden message to lost souls. They understand what I mean when I tell them to get off drugs. But, I also tell them they need to get out of the mental-slave-plantation of the Left. It’s lukewarm Christians who don’t get it.  Is it because they don’t want to?

You may know what you are fighting for, but I am for Trump because he knows, like I know, what we are all fighting against, and what the stakes are if we lose America.

500 PRO-ABORTION, GLOBALIST PASTORS CALL BELIEVERS WHO BACK TRUMP FALSE CHRISTIANS

500 ‘Evangelical’ pastors recently wrote a letter that accuses believers who support Trump of not being Christian. They have even invented a new term to describe what they believe to be a threat to the world. They have coined a new title! “Christian Nationalists.“

I want to show you how wrong and misguided this letter is. We will begin with a tired model that anti-Trump “Christians” keep misapplying, likening Trump’s America to Nazi Germany.

These pastors who call themselves evangelical are trying to say that there is a group they have labeled ‘Christian Nationalists’ who are attempting to do with Trump what ‘misguided’ German Christians did with Hitler. And of course, their intention is to make you think of Trump as a kind of Hitler.

In fact, these pastors fancy themselves the new Dietrich Bonhoeffers. But they couldn’t be more unlike that heroic German pastor who opposed Hitler. Indeed, these pastors have it totally backwards. Instead of being men and women of conscience, they are guilty of a profound compromise and deception. The letter they wrote is diametrically opposite of what Bonhoeffer stood for.

For starters, if Trump is like Hitler, he is doing a terrible job. The media is against him. Academia is against him. Social media is against him. Hitler, on the other hand, controlled everything. He suppressed all opposing thought. He created the original cancel culture. So, in those ways, Hitler would be more akin to the Left who seek to destroy all opposition. Link to letter is below.

Where these pastors get it so wrong is in their ignorance of what ‘right wing’ is and what ‘left wing’ is. The fact is, Nazism is leftist, just as Communism is leftist. To call Nazism extreme right, is a fallacy.

Nazism began as socialism. Yes, indeed socialism is the spawn of the far-left regime known as Nazism, aka the National German Socialist Workers’ Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei or NSDAP).

Again, Hitler was not right wing. He was left wing. No conservative can be a Nazi. A true conservative innately abhors Nazism. Conservatism, as implied by its very name, seeks to conserve the values of a nation, and is thus the natural enemy of both Nazism and Communism.

But this is only the beginning of their errors.

They have invented the term “Christian Nationalists.” The 500 pastors characterize this fictional group as being composed of Trump supporters who serve Jesus, but have blurred the line between being American and being Christian. In the view of these 500 pastors, ‘Christian Nationalists’ believe the Constitution and Declaration of Independence are divine documents equal to scripture, and that they are a grave threat to American freedom.

So, I did some checking, and that reminded me of Grape Nuts.

First, let me ask you about Grape Nuts cereal. Have you ever looked in a box of Grape Nuts? There are no grapes and there are no nuts, and in that same way, Christian Nationalists are like Grape Nuts. You can’t find them anywhere, but according to these pastors, they are everywhere. Instead, finding a Christian Nationalist—a Christian who puts the Declaration of Independence on the same level as the Bible—among those who support Trump, is like trying to find lips on a chicken.

The Christian Nationalist narrative is the Evangelical-woke-pastor’s version of the Russian Collusion hoax.

These pastors are telling an out and out lie. More to the point—Christianity Today Magazine is also telling a lie. Christianity Today, to quote them about the riot at the Capitol building: “The responsibility of yesterday’s violence must be in part laid at the feet of those evangelical leaders who ushered in and applauded Trump’s presidency. It can also sadly be laid at the feet of the white American church more broadly.” That is a lie. A pretty big lie.

Let’s unpack the lie: Trump vehemently opposed violence. He even implored the audience on January 6th to protest peacefully. That is why Trump was acquitted a second time.

What makes it an even more heinous lie is the tinge of racism in the lie about the feet of the white church. A larger percentage of black and Latino voters cast their ballots for Trump. Motivated by their pastors, they voted for Trump in greater numbers than for any Republican in history. Why do these WOKE pastors make it a white thing? The answer to that is chilling.

Why do I believe these pastors are not like Bonhoeffer, but more like the pastors that Bonhoeffer rebuked? It is because they are being silent about the true tyranny currently in the White House.

Furthermore, I do not believe that these pastors are behaving like Bonhoeffer. This letter smacks of the opposite of Bonhoeffer. They sound more like the liberal German preachers who attacked Dietrich for pulling the church into politics.

That explains why one of these evangelical leaders also makes a scathing attack on Eric Metaxas who wrote the definitive biography on Bonhoeffer.

One of Bonhoeffer’s biggest accusations against pastors was their silence. Bonhoeffer said of them “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act. And God will not hold you blameless.”

The 500 pastors who signed the letter are probably howling because I call them pro-abortion and globalists. I will add also that they are racist for continuing the white supremacy narrative. The reason I do is because of their silence—the very silence Bonhoeffer condemned.

Do you hear any of them condemning the Equality Act? The Equality Act puts men in the little girl’s restroom. It is the kind of law that will cause incidents like what happened recently when a man was put in the MMA ring with a woman, and he cracked her skull.

When was the last time any of these 500 men and women condemned the unspeakable evil of abortion from their pulpit? The slaughter of the innocents by doctors is an evil reminiscent of the Nazi ovens and Joseph Mengele.  Hitler’s Final Solution killed about 10 million men, women and children―so far, since 1973, Roe v. Wade has killed over 61 million babies.

Some of these liberal pastors heartily approve of so-called Christian organizations, like Sojourners that have taken money from globalist George Soros.

Because of their blindness about Nazism being right wing, they can ignore the real threat: the total blackout of civil discourse from Democrats. The yawning overreach of the Biden administration. The growing threat to freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

Jesus talked about straining at a gnat, but swallowing a camel, in Matthew 23:24. Here is the gnat they strain at: the mythical threat of ‘Christian Nationalists.’ Here is the camel they are swallowing: the vast tyranny of the Democrat Party and the fact that the church is in the crosshairs.

Here is the clincher that proves they are not at all like Bonhoeffer: Paul D. Miller, a leading proponent of the lie about the mythical ‘Christian Nationalist’ threat, attacks Eric Metaxas—the author of the biography, titled Bonhoeffer. Miller said, “The hardcore ideologues need rebuke; for example, Eric Metaxas and how he has gone hard in the direction of pro-Trump advocacy and Christian nationalism. I disagree with him and I think that he’s harming himself, the nation, and the gospel.”

Two burning questions: Why is Miller attacking the foremost expert on Bonhoeffer? And why did Metaxas, the leading expert on what Germany was like at the time of Hitler, conclude after surveying the current landscape, that Trump is the one to support?

Why have these 500 taken such a hard left turn? And why have they demonized an innocent group of believers? Let me give the answers in order: A desperate pharisaical need for acceptance from academia and a misguided sense of superiority over their brothers and sisters in Christ.

These pastors want to look Woke to the establishment. They do not want to stand out. They yearn for academic acceptance. Matthew 23:5-7 says “But all their works they do to be seen by men. They make their phylacteries broad and enlarge the borders of their garments. They love the best places at feasts, the best seats in the synagogues, greetings in the marketplaces, and to be called by men, ‘Rabbi, Rabbi.’”

Interestingly, this same weakness that kept pastors quiet about Hitler, is keeping these leaders quiet about the evils of Biden.

They do not have a valid argument; they only have a contempt for Christians who support Trump. That contempt is an arrogant sense of superiority. Look at how loaded this question to Miller was in this article in Christianity Today: “Question to Miller: ‘What is the draw of Christian nationalism to the “poor, uneducated, and easy to command” Religious Right, as they’ve been described?’”

Now look at what a former editor of Christianity Today, Mark Calli, said about Trump supporters: “I know hardly anyone, let alone any evangelical Christian who voted for Trump. I describe evangelicals like me as ‘elite’ evangelicals … and this class of evangelicals has discovered that we have family members so different they seem like aliens in our midst. These other evangelicals often haven’t finished college, and if they have jobs (and apparently a lot of them don’t), they are blue-collar jobs or entry-level work. They don’t write books or give speeches; they don’t attend conferences of evangelicals for social justice or evangelicals for immigration reform. They are deeply suspicious of mainstream media. A lot of them voted for Donald Trump.”

These words are chillingly similar to former President Barack Obama’s description of rural voters who “bitterly cling to their guns and Bibles,” and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s characterization of Trump supporters as “deplorables.”

That contempt is also in Miller who is part of the 500 and who believes Trump supporters need to be deprogrammed: “I think the ambassadors are the deceivers and they need to be expelled and rejected,” and, he concludes that we, as Trump supporters, “all need to be deprogrammed.”

The letter from this group of 500 liberals serves a darker purpose: to intimidate Christians into silence. Kylee Zempel in her article entitled, “Stop Smearing Christians As ‘Christian Nationalists’ Just Because They Value Both Faith And Freedom,” said this:

“…stories about so-called Christian nationalism would love nothing more than to shame and bully faithful disciples into sitting down and shutting up. The Capitol riot was a convenient hook for their narrative, but they don’t just believe the people who showed up in Washington that day were religious extremists. They think all Christians are. It isn’t that they don’t want you in Statuary Hall. It’s that they don’t want you on the school board, in journalism, or on campus. They want to chase you out of churches, out of public office, and even out of political conversations.

“As long we remain on this Earth, Christians will be assailed as bigots and nationalists. This evergreen dynamic of Christians being not “of the world,” but striving to be faithful while they’re “in it.”  Don’t confuse true believers who rightly fight for both faith and freedom as Christian nationalists. They’re just Christians.”

Amen!

Bottom line? What is the reason for the hatred of Christians, the Church, and Donald Trump? The Bible says, “Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! For the devil has come down unto you, having great wrath, knowing that he has but a short time” (Rev. 12:12)

Make no mistake: the stealing of the 2020 election and the frantic push by the current regime to undo everything Trump put into place is designed to reshape America into a Marxist, atheistic version of Orwell’s 1984 that would be unrecognizable to the founding fathers. It is part of the relentless plan of Satan to destroy this nation, the last bastion of freedom in the world.

HOW MUCH MORE INSANITY MUST WE ENDURE AS AMERICANS?

University classes, where people wear shoe lifts to make everyone the same height to enforce equality, is total bananas.

Amazon banning books is tyranny.

More lunacy: The Supreme Court refusing act on voter fraud is, well, I’ll let Clarence Thomas say it: “The decision to leave election law hidden beneath a shroud of doubt is baffling. By doing nothing, we invite further confusion and erosion of voter confidence.” 

Congress bullying media outlets not to carry Fox News, OAN and Newsmax is Nazism.

Coca Cola teaching a racist class against white people is vile.

Ending deportations of killers and rapists―absolutely insane.

You see it all around you. Wokeness on steroids. Democrats encircling the earth with witch hunts. City after city endangered by wacko laws—a growing pseudo-outrage ripping the very fabric of American life to shreds.

How much more do we have to take? Believe it or not—that is up to us. Yes, we must take it, but only until we are fed up enough to really do something about it.

So, you ask: What does, ‘really doing something about it,’ look like?

Is the answer armed revolution? No! No violence or rioting is needed or justified. The answer is right under our nose. Tonight, I was on Flashpoint on the Victory Channel with Pastor Gene Bailey, Senator Jason Rapert, Abby Johnson, and Dutch Sheets. The issue we confronted during this broadcast was abortion. Throughout the program, something kept coming up as a cause of our crisis. It also answered the question: Why have abortions continued to take place for decade after decade?

At first, the usual suspects were addressed. Immorality drives abortion. Money drives abortions. But what permits it to survive? The answer echoed, at one point or another, from every one of us: the cowardice of Christian leaders.

That cowardice explains the deafening silence in our pulpits. That cowardice explains why American Christians cannot act as a single force to bring change: Because of the need for prominence. The need for acceptance. The need for a massive congregation. Those needs are the sorry substitutes for moral outrage that Satan has sold to pastors and Christian leaders.

2 Chronicles 7:14 says “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” But what is lost in our constant quoting of this promise is one glaring sin: OUR WICKED WAYS!

That tens of millions of Christians can go online and listen to their favorite preacher, preach on sub-topics, New Age pep talks, false imperatives, and fantasies about the supernatural, is wicked. These are our wicked ways!

The American church is still asleep. And their managers are enjoying the slumber of the masses way too much to wake them up. We are still so steeped in ‘Church incorporated’ that none of the disasters America is experiencing are enough to wake us up. Think about it! Why are not the pandemic, the stolen election, the mass censorship, legalized drugs, legalized gay marriage, the fact that our cities are now open sewers of immorality, that abortion is not just accepted, but enshrined in the American psyche, still not enough to make us turn from our wicked ways?

We torture the rare voices that are contending for revival. 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 are fast asleep.

You have no further to look for the answer to why evil is exalted than the paralysis that grips the American pulpit and the indifference of the church. Christians need to drop ‘business as usual’ and unify under the banner of decency.  Yes, I am being stern! But the stakes are too high to spare anyone’s feelings.

And the most frustrating part of all this is the fact that we can so easily prevent impending disaster if we will just come together and unify. Not oneness of doctrine or tradition—but unity for the sake of decency!

If everyone from Mark Zuckerberg to Chuck Schumer to John Roberts could feel the fire of an awakened American Church—a church willing to say, “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!” — this madness would fold like a house of cards!

WHAT THE BIBLE REALLY SAYS ABOUT SUBMISSION TO GOVERNMENT.

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.

If we don’t realize this now, we will 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. “Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with You—they who frame and hide their unrighteous doings under [the sacred name of] law?” (Psalm 94:20). There is your answer. A corrupt throne (government) cannot be allied with God. He cannot have fellowship with it. 

When a government creates evil laws God cannot be allied it—because evil laws are the worst form of wickedness.

 They are damnable because they give 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).
