It’s easy to see what is making America miserable: The Left has a firm grip on a lie while the church has a loose grip on the truth.
The left told America to turn her back on God. How’s that working? Every metric of quality of life in our nation shows the same trend: acute loneliness, emptiness and despair.
Liberals told America there are many ways to truth. But, instead of enlightenment, it brought deeper darkness, deeper questions, and a growing inability to know truth.
Few Americans can make it through a day without alcohol, a toke, a pill, powder or a needle. Our children are taking their own lives over shoes, pictures on Instagram, and bullies at school.
Is this what happens when you tell God to leave? Did God leave the Democrat party after they booed Him at their convention?
The Left doesn’t want to own up to the misery of the inner cities they have controlled for 50 years. The left chants, “keep taking government money it will give you a future. Keep believing you are a victim, and you’ll stop being a victim.”
The left must keep a tight grip on a the lie of calling America racist. Even if Obama’s election proved it is a lie.
The Left says they must silence opposing views. Weaponize heckling. Make it a veto on free speech. They’ve created young minds full of self-pity and fear.
The left says America is evil for not opening their borders. Wait what?! America is the most welcoming nation on earth. The overwhelming majority of the people on earth believe in strong borders. Most nations have much stricter border policies. But the lie must live on because democrats need new voters.
We are a nation at each other’s throats. The left loves it that way. Mobs not jobs is a totally justified accusation against the left.
They have a firm grip on a lie, but the church has a loose grip on the truth.
Did God also leave those entertainment worship centers that filtered out the Holy Spirit in favor of marketing? The Left has no answer but shouts as if they did. The church has the answer and is silent as if they didn’t. Leftist’s go on talk shows and spout madness with conviction. Christian celebrities go on the same show and can’t (or won’t) define sin.
Superstar Christian speakers said there are many ways to win a generation to God. We no longer need repentance, Bible preaching, or reliance on the Holy Spirit. No matter what they boast the fact remains, they didn’t win lost souls so much as they moved gullible Christians away from Godly pastors into the shallows. Instead of making disciples they provide quarter for those who want a faith without works.
The Holy Spirit is not welcome in this place. They fear holiness the way snowflakes fear Ben Shapiro. They dread the power gifts of the Holy Spirit. They omit the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. The nation pays the price for their lukewarm faith.
America became miserable in part because some preachers told us not to judge. We ended up not being able to discern! Millions of so-called Christians vote for abortion and same sex marriage. We were powerless in America’s hour of need—too disoriented and morally ambivalent to push back on immoral laws. The Great Commission was plowed under the priority of church growth.
Both the left and lukewarm have this in common: they gave America false promises.
Stuck in the middle between the radical left and the lukewarm church are tens of millions of Americans who just want truth. They are paying taxes, raising kids, obeying laws, and they still love America. They are vulnerable to the raw power of the Gospel.
Also stuck between the radical left and the lukewarm church is the remnant of God. These are pastors, and regular Christians who are praying to go deeper. They are busy saying to each other, “the sideshow is not God, there’s more! No way can Satan win if we take our stand on the authority of the Cross!” They are ready to deliver that raw power of the Gospel.
Woe onto you God haters and lukewarmers. Two radically wonderful groups are about to meet each other in the midst of this misery. God will see to it that the Americans who want deliverance and a life worth living will collide with the holy core of God who only want to obey the Holy Spirit.
A company of God’s people with a firm grip on the truth will loose many from the power of Satan.
Daniel 11:32 “Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.”
Dear Left…you’re salivating at the thought of throwing Trump out of office. Be careful what you wish for. You are truly in a lose-lose situation.
Let me say upfront—I want Donald Trump to remain president. I believe he will remain president. And then he’ll be reelected.
I know, I know…some Christians are wringing their hands at all the drama going on right now. But I am at total peace. These histrionics are simply proof of two things: President Trump is not a politician. And who could have foreseen, when he started draining the swamp, how vicious and abundant the monsters.
Trump is impulsive? In a zombie apocalypse, you must act fast!
So, go ahead and dump him. You never will, but let’s just say you did. You’d bring to power the most committed Christian who has ever been president.
Don’t get me wrong I respect Donald Trump, I believe he is a man of faith, but I might not crown him theologian of the year. Mike Pence, on the other hand, knows the Bible well. He will take a strong stand for godly principles.
And so, dear left, if you get your wish, …here is who, and what, will be in the White House:
He is even more socially conservative than Donald Trump. Mike Pence is stronger on abortion, and marriage than Trump. For social progressives, this is exit frying pan enter fire.
The new MAGA would read Make America Godly Again.
And if you think you can use the tactics you currently use on Donald Trump…consider the Mike Pence temperament. He is calm, measured, listens before he speaks, uses few words and leads a squeaky clean personal life. He is the yellow journalist’s worst nightmare.
I can’t wait for Stephen Colbert, Rachel Maddow and Don Lemon to try to tell us what an evil person Mike Pence is.
Remember the vice-presidential debate? Recall how he reduced Tim Kaine to a caterwauling infant. The more Mike stayed calm, the shriller Kaine became. It looked like a school principal talking to a hysterical junior higher.
Instead of the zingers from Trump (which I love) you will get the rational, considered opinion that demolishes stupid questions. (Which I also love). You really want that?
Mike Pence also has bi-partisan support—even from those that disagree with his convictions.
Left-wing God haters rest between the proverbial rock and a hard place. For those who want one nation under God, Mike Pence would reinforce it
Trump is an answer to prayer. He is the wrecking ball to corruption in both Democrats and Republicans that we so desperately needed. This just in: Trump will not be thrown out of office. Donald Trump will fulfill his destiny.
However, the thought of a president Mike Pence should give the left a fresh nightmare. But it should give the faithful another feeling: the feeling of win-win.
No matter how much I am attacked, I will not turn my back on Trump. Because of his policies I have been able to win more souls, and preach with greater freedom. He is standing up for our ministry and he is standing up for you too.
You lefties need to save your strength. Nothing you say is going to change my mind.
Now I have a burning question for the church…Have you seen the chilling video of Lance Wallnau relating the prophetic warning Trump gave to Evangelical leaders? Our president found out what the Democrats plan to do to Christians if they retake the House and Senate. He took the time to gather church leaders and warn them.
The Left will go after the church with vengeance because they think the church helped Trump. Embarrassingly, that is a false accusation since the church at large really hasn’t helped him. Nothing like they could have. Now because of apathy, Trump’s hard won protections are being frittered away. The President’s description of the left’s hatred for the church, and their plans for us should they win next Tuesday is chilling.
Think of it! Everything Trump has done for the rights of Christians—the rights Obama removed—are threatened again. On top of that, the most oppressive and tedious investigations ever with halt the engines of our economy. Mueller’s investigation would look like a picnic compared to the tidal wave of investigations Democrats will start.
Informed sources say, radicals will be bolder to assault conservatives and Christians. Social media would tear off its mask and openly persecute the church. Yeah I’m mad.
It is maddening! The excruciating suffering Trump and his family faced so we could do something so simple and easy: to vote and challenge other Christians to vote from our pulpits… AND WE COULDN’T EVEN BRING OURSELVES TO DO THAT?
It is jaw-dropping how oblivious many believers are about the moment they are living. Trump is a divine disruption–a merciful pause button to give the church a chance to keep America from going off a socialistic cliff. So far, most in the church have done little to act on this mercy, let alone appreciate it! But I thank God for my president!
And what has the church done to repay Trump for his nameless, daily agony on our behalf? Many reward him with apathy, ingratitude and abandonment. My friend, we are about to pay an incalculable price if we don’t get a right view of this hour.
I am sorry to say this but…Satan has seduced many preachers who lead empires and independent kingdoms. They—at this hour—will not unify to speak to the nation as one voice. They can’t afford to offend for the sake of their empires. Little do they know that if the Left gets its way they’ll have no empire left to defend.
Mario is there any hope? Yes, but we need God put electrode paddles to our faintly beating hearts. We need holy rage, holy boldness. We need to talk to every believer we know and wake them up to vote and to tell others to vote.
I realize that it takes courage to support Trump and our faith at this hour. Just remember, right now it is hard but if we lose in November it will go from hard to impossible.
No one believes in miracles more than I—and that’s just what we must have at this hour. We need a miracle of repentance, boldness…but it all begins with humble appreciation that we have this man in the White House.
There will never be a more important election than this one. Your vote will never mean more than now.
Are you being rallied to vote? Are you being armed with Scriptural precepts that show your undeniable duty in this hour?
The day when vessels of God could leave politicians alone is gone. The preacher who rebukes politicians today is not partisan or political—they are a normal servant of God.
That’s a bitter pill to swallow—but swallow it me must. The fictional detective Sherlock Holmes said, “How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?” What is left to you when you remove the mask of the Democratic Party? The truth about them is undeniable.
Here is the truth about the Democratic Party:
-The Democratic Party will work to force Christianity to change. Hillary Clinton said, “religious beliefs have to be changed.” CA Democratic Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi said, “the church must evolve.” They are the ones who let slip the goal of the Democratic Party.
-The flood of illegal immigrants you see—the open borders you see—the relentless effort to change the face of America you see is not by accident. It is by design. The sole intention of this invasion—for that’s what it is—is to keep an elite cadre of leftists in power. These elitists are in education, entertainment, media, technology and politics.
-They are the one who espoused violence. Faulty explosive devices sent to Liberal leaders? They blame Trump? Now they are calling for conservatives to stop violence? They have zero evidence that anyone except one deranged lunatic anything to do with those bombs.
Eric Holder said to kick them. Hillary said you can’t be civil. Maxine Waters called for mobs to form and harass them. Joe Biden and Robert Di Nero want fist fights with Trump. The New York Times runs a fantasy piece about assassinating Trump. Madonna said she wanted to blow up the White House.
I ask you…are conservatives rioting, burning, or shooting Democratic politicians? Do you see widespread civil unrest fomenting among Trump supporters? Who holds up bloody heads of Trump? Who cheer at plays that depict the assassination of Trump?
The call to tone down the rhetoric on both sides sounds rational but it is wholly misguided unless the left admits they are mostly responsible. Physical violence is almost the exclusive domain of the left. Trump supporters may yell and scream but examples of violence are rare compared to the left. How rich is it that George Soros is now condemning violence and hate after he has funded it for years?
But the real issue is that leaders in the Democratic Party will not call off their dogs. They are okay with riots. This is but a taste of the tactics they will employ not only on the street but in government. If they resort to riots, burning down buildings, bullying, censorship, and intimidation now…what will they do if they regain power?
No pastor—no matter how famous or wise—has been able to offer even a weak argument to defend their silence. Instead, even when confronted with all the facts—knowing they are without excuse—preachers simply drop the God Card: “God told me to keep quiet.” Well, no He didn’t.
Some say they don’t want to lose their tax exemption. What good will your tax exemption be when your congregation is driven underground?
When unapologetic evil emanates from the Democratic Party you vote against them. When soul-withering incompetence threatens to rule the House and Senate you stop it.
This Sunday every pulpit in America must direct their congregation to vote and how to vote against the destruction of America—for that is exactly what you will be doing.
This is it! You will have only one chance in your life to stop this madness. So, I ask you one last time…what is your church saying about this election?
I don’t mention any names in this blog. I wanted you to see—if you get to see—how extreme things have gotten. Censorship is no longer just about what you say, it is about what they think you are saying. Soon they will censor what they think you are thinking. Consider yourself fortunate if this information is not blocked—or if you got to it before it was.
I am about to talk to you villains who are burning down our house. They are using lies and bankrupt ideas to set their fires. I will use another vehicle that is new to me: I am going to direct this blog directly to the guilty. I am going to rebuke them. You may think that is unloving…maybe even unchristian. That hits on why we have lost so many moral battles.
To win them—we were told—we must be nice. We couldn’t have been nicer. We didn’t win them. In fact, our niceness made them hate us more. Love sometimes delivers a “thanks I needed that” message. Occasionally, the truth should hurt…especially when a nation is at stake.
Wicked people have torched the truth and it’s your children’s future that’s on fire. It’s time you realized that something truly dark is looming on the horizon.
Is there hope? There is great hope. In fact, it was at a low ebb of faith like this that the Jesus movement exploded.
BURNING DOWN OUR HOUSE
You doused America with flammable lies. Every room, every stairway, every doorway soaked in combustible falsehoods. Then you struck the match. Now the house is burning down. A five-alarm fire.
Like crazed villagers, you scream “it is for the greater good” as you torch everything in your path. History chases you pleading: “this has never worked, and it will never work.” But do you listen? Reason hunts you down and cries, “you will make the world worse than it was before.” But it doesn’t matter.
You’ll will enforce truth by lying? You’ll conquer hate with what, new hate?
You’re attacking evil? Please explain: After you tell every lie, break every law—and evil not only survives but turns back on you—what truth or law will be left to protect you? What love, justice, and mercy will be left to build that better world?
I hear some teens declare, “My parents are idiots so ban all the guns.” Or, “if I can get an AR 15, what’s to stop me from getting a nuclear weapon?” The entire military maybe? All this money and attention is being thrown at you because you’re a pawn. To them you’re no timeless warrior. To them you’re the flavor of the month. To them you’re 15 minutes are almost up.
Then there’s the older protesters. The revolution is going to usher in the better world? Your claim to be “woke” feels more like a joke. You are flush with hate. Will you magically be fair—with justice for all—once you have the power? Face it, you don’t want to end oppression. You want to be the new oppressor.
You scream “by any means necessary!” But do you know what is necessary? Truth, justice, equality, and prosperity come from God—from honoring His Word. We’ve reaffirmed it for thousands of years. The only time it has ever gone right for America is when we’ve honored these self-evident truths. But, does history matter to a mind high on mythical ideology or pot?
You claim science is on your side. But it is science that refutes you. It is science that knows you falsified your research on gender, weather, and so many things in order to sell your agenda.
Insanity is when you keep doing the same thing over and over again hoping for a new result. Hate is when you keep the same thing over and over again—even though you know it doesn’t work—because it hurts the right people.
You see nothing wrong with censorship. You’re fine with rioters shutting down free speech. You’re okay with sanitizing a religion of hate and twisting the golden words of the Carpenter of Nazareth into hate.
Then there are the sophisticated arsonists. Governors, special counsels, media CEOs, late night comedians, Senators, all spouting the party line in robotic unison. You spew the same mantras. You claim the same sanctimonious ramparts.
“We must make America like California!” Have you tried to educate a Christian child there? Have you tried to run a small business there? Have you tried to eat, sleep, breathe, or find shelter there? Have you tried to get over the murder of your son, or daughter by someone who wasn’t supposed to be there? Why would you wish California on the rest of America?
Next is the fire starter who got fired and decided to write a book. It’s no revelation, it’s a pouty, whiny, rag filled with self-congratulation, half-truths and hate. A thousand chimps on a thousand typewriters given eons of time could not create such a tower of self-pity and victimhood.
Then there’s you—the sore loser playing with matches. The crashing bore who stayed at the party too long. You would rather contaminate the narrative with your delusional entitlement, than let the nation move on.
Finally, there’s the arsonist who couldn’t leave power gracefully. You were afforded the highest honor and you turned it into a tool to dismantle a nation. You’re the angry tenant who trashes the apartment. Only you go one better…you leave toadies in governmental sleeper cells to do your bidding. You started all the fires you could to keep bringing down the nation.
To all of you comes a solemn warning. America is not just a country. There’s something deep in our soil. Something too deep for a Marxist to understand. And if your hopes and dreams rest in bringing this nation down you just might end up fighting God Himself. There are millions of people praying at this hour. They don’t want your brand of country. They don’t want angry values and hollow promises. They want freedom. They fear the Lord…and He watches over them. You are trying to burn down our house just remember, its not just our house…it’s His.
Mass murder, debauchery, and the stress of nations, press us daily. We can feel the crushing weight of inadequacy. Can we stay sane? Is the moral situation so far gone that we tuck our faith and just endure hoping we outlast the madness?
Ephesians 6:10 says, “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.’ But, how do we apply all that power and might to this flood of evil and stress that hitting us every day?
Not only can we apply it, we are expressly called—and uniquely equipped—to express this might. The legacy of our faith demands it—the nature of the Holy Spirit—and the Word of God demand it. There is no holding pattern for us. God only leads forward.
With just a few simple words, Jesus revealed the vast superiority of our victory compared to all world religions. He said, “I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.” –John 17:15.
The religions of the world teach escape. They deem the world too dangerous for their devotees. Whether it is a Buddhist Monastery or a Muslim Caliphate the message is clear: They can’t coexist with secular culture. They require physical separation, cleansing rituals, strict diets, or total subjugation of infidels.
For Jesus to pray for His flock to stay in the culture are not just fighting words—they are an in-your-face smack down of evil.
While cultural contact withers the faith of false religions, it enhances the Christian—it sharpens their faith, brightens their light, and deepens their authority.
You must get why you are here. You must see the astounding picture of the army you belong to. Our very presence on earth is God’s way of saying victory is available. He keeps us here because we can win.
Think of soldiers in an army fighting in their little sector. They are being hard-pressed, and things are going against them. If, for one moment, they think it’s just their fight they will soon be defeated. But when they remember they are only a part of a great and mighty army, and directing it, is the Captain, their Leader, immediately the situation is transformed. In other words, we have got to realize God is involved in it with us. We are only here because of God.
The 3 steps I am about to declare bring victory of the present evil and stress. They hit me when I saw two groups of people—hundreds of years apart, in totally different situations—take the identical 3 steps to victory.
One was a prophecy by Daniel in in 600 BC and the other happened in 31 AD. The first is Daniel describing how the Maccabean revolt would win in 167 BC. The second is the people in the land of Gennesaret welcoming Jesus. The former liberated Israel, the latter wiped out sickness and disease. Again, they both took the same 3 steps. Here are the scriptures:
Daniel 11: 32 “Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.”
Mark 6: 53-56: “When they had crossed over, they came to the land of Gennesaret and anchored there. And when they came out of the boat, immediately the people recognized Him, ran through that whole surrounding region, and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to wherever they heard He was. Wherever He entered, into villages, cities, or the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well.”
Here are the 3 key words in both these victories: KNOW, STRONG, CARRY. The first group knew God, were strong, and carried out exploits. The second group did the same 3 things. They recognized (knew Jesus). They ran (showed strength). They carried others who received miracles. (Exploits)
Take these 3 steps to defeat today’s stress and evil:
- Obey God’s pull. He is pulling you to know Him in deep intimacy: Psalm 27:8 says “When You said, “Seek My face,” My heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.” What is your reaction to God’s call to do a secret work in you? Are you saying yes?
I believe Jesus is using this message from me to you to draw you into special closeness to Him. If you say yes, special things will begin to happen. You will instantly conquer fear and worry. Isaiah 26: 3 says, “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. “
Your faith for mighty things will multiply. Jesus said,” If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.” -John 15:7
God not only knew the insanity of today was coming—He took steps to prepare a special relationship, that would produce special powers for His children. We can blame no one but ourselves if we neglect this astonishing invitation.
- Become strong. What did Isaiah say would happen to those who heeded the call to wait on God? “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31
Your new-found and deep connection to God the Father, create strength. Note once again the amazing parallel between the phrases, “they shall run and not be weary,” and “they recognized Him and ran.
Touchy feely faith is out. This is the era of strong Christians. Tomorrow belongs to Christians who are stronger than headlines—stronger than threats—stronger than anything unfolding on the earth.
- Accept your mission: You have a mission, you have an ordained exploit. It is ironic that the real cure for today’s fear and stress is to think big, and take on massive vision. Fresh vision always chases away depression.
Opposition and persecution do not mean we hide, in fact we are to become bolder. Look at what the disciples did at Iconium: Acts 14: 2 “But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brethren. 3 Therefore they stayed there a long time, speaking boldly in the Lord, who was bearing witness to the word of His grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.” They were opposed, therefore they stayed and saw greater miracles.
An exploit that summons up all your talent and every drop of your courage is comfort food for the Spirit-empowered believer.
The bottom line: We are so subjective, and we live in this unhealthy psychological generation that starts with man and ends with man. Most of our troubles are due to that. We are always looking inwards and pitying ourselves and being sorry for ourselves, and looking for something to help us. Get rid of that outlook, forget yourself for a moment; the battle is the Lord’s! You can know Him. You can become strong. You will do amazing things.
