WHY IS TRUMP DIVISIVE? BECAUSE HE IS SUPPOSED TO BE DIVISIVE.

Donald Trump is divisive. He has to be. He is divisive in the way that a surgeon ‘divides’ a cancer from a patient. He is divisive in the way that a cop ‘divides’ an innocent woman from her attacker. He has been placed in the White House to create a division between us and certain disaster.

He is uncompromising because the other side wants to destroy the United States. The Democrat Party has erased any possibility of compromise because everything America stands for will simply not survive what they will do to us if they are not stopped.

Yes, it is true, that fuzzy-thinking Christians want Trump to be more conciliatory toward his opponents. But it is his opponents, and not Trump, who have made that impossible.  Under the current conditions, a good leader must be divisive.

Jesus talked about being divisive: “Do not think that I have come to bring peace on the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword [of division between belief and unbelief]. For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man’s enemies will be the members of his [own] household [when one believes, and another does not]” (Matthew 10:34-36).

Jesus divided truth and error, light and darkness, slavery and liberty. The modern church has so blatantly neglected her duty to American culture up until now, that we have no choice. We must openly speak out against the agenda of the Democrat Party because they have forced our hand, and, more importantly, the hand of God.

Trump is divisive! But let’s take a look at what he is trying to divide us from:

Trump must divide the nation from the Democrat Party’s deadly anti-American mindset: Gabrielle Bruney confirms this mindset. Writing for Esquire Magazine she said, “Trump’s Mount Rushmore Speech was just as terrifyingly bonkers as you’d expect. The President rejected Independence Day weekend unity in favor of fomenting hysteria about “far-left fascism.””

According to Gabrielle, we are only imagining the looting, burning and killings that have been running rampant in dozens of major cities. According to her, there is no nationwide crime wave. There are no leftist hordes wreaking havoc across America—there is no unhinged media propaganda campaign to smear our history—there is no educational brainwashing against American values. It is all in our minds. The worst part is that she believes that because he refuses to deny the existence of the ongoing leftist rampage, Trump is being divisive. Wow…

It is imperative for Trump to divide us from the Democrat Party’s campaign to poison our history: One of Joe’s Biden’s potential picks for running mate is Tammy Duckworth.  Here is what she said on CNN about President Trump’s speech at Mount Rushmore: “He spent all of his time talking about dead traitors.”

The woman who called George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln “dead traitors” is Biden’s idea of a potential Vice President? That tells you everything you need to know about where the Democrat Party stands. They hate America, the Constitution, and those who founded and preserved this nation.

Here’s the key point: Trump’s speech at Mount Rushmore wasn’t hysteria. It wasn’t tyrannical. It was American. That’s why they hated it.

Another thing I am proud that President Trump is dividing us from is the wave of murders, violence, and destruction that is growing daily on every street in America.  Tucker Carlson rightly labelled the masses of violent protesters the “armed militia of the Democrat Party.” That is exactly what they are. The top officials of the Democrat Party are more than sanctioning the fires, looting and killing going on in the streets.

For Christians to be squeamish about Trump’s rightful divisiveness is tragic. I thank God that Donald Trump is wielding a sword. I thank God he is weathering both the insane onslaught of hatred from the Left and the apathy and outright antagonism coming from lukewarm Christians. Believe me, they are both equally painful to him.

 

Finally, imagine a Christian from China who has been imprisoned for his faith. After being set free and being brought to America, what is his first impression of the American church? Most people would guess that he would marvel at our religious freedom. But they would be wrong. No, his reaction would be just the opposite.

He would be horrified that we are blind to what is happening to our country. He would be dumbfounded to see us heading down the exact same road that China took when its people fell into lockstep with the anti-Christ Marxists who came down from the hills looting, burning and pulling down statues. He would be outraged at our apathy toward the chaos and tyranny. And he would be dumbfounded at our hesitation to oppose their godless agenda.

Most of all, that man would be the first to praise the forceful way in which Trump is combating this evil. Yes, Trump is divisive. And thank God he is!

 

P.S. A Special message to all of our friends from Mario Murillo Ministries

Why do we offer you books? It is certainly not to blunt the impact of the message you just read. In fact, these books reinforce the message we are trying to spread. More on that in a moment.  So, why do we offer them to you?
When the pandemic closed our tent crusades, church meetings and rallies, the Holy Spirit commanded Mario to keep our staff on at full salary, and trust Him. He obeyed and God has provided. But another thing the Holy Spirit grants are wise ideas. And we needed one. That is when the War Chest Collection was born.
If you look at the page you will see no advertising. And there never will be. And if you get our newsletter you will see that we have stopped raising money for projects we can’t do right now. But even that was not good enough for us.
In this pandemic we needed something that was truly a win-win situation. We prayed for something that would help the people, and us, that was not a garish fund raiser.
Then, we remembered how John Wesley taught his young preachers to always bring books with them that would help the people. Why not then, at a time when people have time to read, offer them something that will empower them and at the same time keep us strong and ready to go as soon as the door reopens?  
We are amazed at the impact of Vessels of Fire and Glory. That book is not just blessing people—it has started a movement! Critical Mass remains required reading in many Christian schools and has never stopped influencing people who pray for revival. Edgewise offers wisdom for living in the last days. Together they provide you with solid, hard-hitting and encouraging truth. Not a bad thing just now.
The War Chest Collection has handed the enemy a double defeat by empowering God’s people and keeping us strong and ready.

NO. THE BIBLE DOES NOT TELL YOU TO OBEY EVIL LAWS

There would be no America if Christian Colonists believed they should obey the evil laws of England. Similarly, California Governor Gavin Newsom has ordered churches not to sing and worship. I can’t think of a worse idea than to stop praise and worship because Gavin Newsom, or any other Governor told you to. It’s time  to wake up to the sad truth that Democrat Governors have declared war on the church. They were aggressively oppressing Christians long before Covid 19.

This latest travesty is just using the Pandemic as an excuse. This is just a test to see how the public reacts to Christian persecution. If we do not vehemently reject this tyranny, it will embolden Democrat leaders in other states to do the same thing. It is time to resist.

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, it will soon be too late.

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).

HE IS SUPPOSED TO BE DIVISIVE

Donald Trump is divisive. He has to be. He is divisive in the way that a surgeon ‘divides’ a cancer from a patient. He is divisive in the way that a cop ‘divides’ an innocent woman from her attacker. He has been placed in the White House to create a division between us and certain disaster.

TO THE CHILDREN OF GOD AND THE ENEMIES OF GOD IN AMERICA

America did not just happen. From the first flickering flame in the first heart that yearned to breathe free…God was in the mix. He set the wheels in motion for a band of farmers to unseat the greatest military power in the world. He, not we, are the source of our nation’s greatness.

At this moment blood is running in our streets, and madness reigns in our media, universities and much of the seats of political power. They are desecrating statues and paintings, renaming products, censoring people who won’t surrender to them. They are reeling in the fever of a false righteous indignation.

To the God-haters of America: there will be no peace, truth or justice at the end of your rampage. You are not erasing the blood of the past. You are smearing a fresh coat of it with your own bloody brush. You are adding new shame to the old shame. One tyranny intends to erase the other. One racial prejudice is being replaced with another.

Aiding and abetting you, are religious leaders—the very ones who should be standing up to you. Men who parade their cowardice as if it were purity. They kowtow to villains in order to appear holy. Trampling on all the vows they made to God, in exchange for an unholy truce.

Google, Facebook and Twitter abuse their power to silence millions—especially the work of God. Will it succeed?

BEWARE! He who guards America’s destiny does not sleep or slumber. He is laughing at your plans. He knows who has hijacked the ideals and innocence of the young and made them pawns in a wicked scheme. The Holy One knows you lust for a weakened America so that you can enforce your dream of world domination.

But God holds a surprise. A surprise for His children and a surprise for His enemies. His plan cannot be resisted. It cannot be defeated. Any and all sophisticated arguments against it will disintegrate. No counsel formed against the Lord will succeed. America’s supernatural origin guarantees there will be an intervention.

Gamaliel’s warning, found in Acts 5:38-39, holds true for the enemies of God in America: “And now I say to you, keep away from these men and let them alone; for if this plan or this work is of men, it will come to nothing; but if it is of God, you cannot overthrow it—lest you even be found to fight against God.”

I solemnly warn you. Take your hands of the church. Take your hands off the Bill of Rights. So far you have contended with fearful politicians and confused preachers, but the Holy God of heaven is stirring Himself. He will not let America go down without a fight. And Gamaliel was correct—you will find yourself fighting against God Himself.

To the discouraged child of God, to the disheartened preacher, and to the remnant of God in America, O you His little ones, He intends to give you the Kingdom.  At this hour, God is separating, training, emboldening, infusing, indwelling, empowering, and instructing the special weapons of love that are uniquely equipped for this battle for the soul of America.

God has sent His signal. Let all who Name His Name depart from evil and prepare for battle. We have no option. Spurgeon wrote, “We must never dream of terms or truce with evil. To suppose that we can let him alone, and all will be well, is a deadly error. We must fight or perish: evil will slay us if we do not slay it. Our only safety will lie in a determined, vigorous opposition to sin, whatever shape it assumes, whatever it may threaten, whatever it may promise. The Holy Ghost alone can maintain in us this enmity to sin.”

The Holy Spirit is roaring out to every soldier of Christ who dwells in America: Take courage! Do not be dismayed. Nothing about this rain of evil that has fallen since the day Trump became President is a surprise to God—or a threat to God.

The Body of Christ in America is like Paul the Apostle on the island of Miletus. A viper sank its fangs and injected lethal venom into Paul. The islanders thought he must be a criminal who justice had caught up with, and that he would die. But Paul merely shook the serpent off into the fire.

Child of God! Shake off your fears into the fire. Shake off your discouragement into the fire. Shake off every last lie that exalts itself against your destiny. The American Church of Jesus Christ—the real church: Wake up! Behold, there are infinitely more on our side than there are on their side.

The Gospel shall yet be honored in America. Miracles will flow like a river. The fact that Satan is screaming just the opposite in your ear—that is proof that what I am telling you is true.

Now, I want you to get up on your feet. I want you to raise holy hands to God and give Him your doubt. Give Him your fear. The mighty God—the awesome God—the everlasting God is about to give you the very miracle that He has given to chosen vessels throughout history. He is about to turn you into a warrior—a warrior who will cause demons not only to tremble but to let loose of lost souls and remove their grip from a dying nation!

Vessels of Fire and Glory

Vessels of Fire and Glory is Mario’s newest book. It reached number one on Amazon among all Spirit-filled books. John Kilpatrick who led the Pensacola Revival said this after he read Vessels of Fire and Glory: “As I read the manuscript for Mario Murillo’s new book, Vessels of Fire and Glory, I said to myself, “Finally!” Mario has measured the church and the nation in this season and did not hold anything back. His honesty is like the sun rising inside a dark cave. This release is a paradox—it is sobering and refreshing; it is symptoms and the cure. I believe this revivalist has penned a treatise that should be in the hands of all who lead the work of God.”

 Edgewise

Here is a book about the end times with a totally different approach. It does not focus on how the world will end but on how to live as the curtain comes down on humanity. Powerful, practical, and encouraging.

Critical Mass

Critical Mass is the best-selling book Mario Murillo has ever written. It has been acclaimed as a classic on how to pray for, surrender to, and sustain revival. It is required reading in many colleges and training centers.

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, it will soon be too late.

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).

A MESSAGE TO THE CHILDREN OF GOD AND THE ENEMIES OF GOD IN AMERICA

America did not just happen. From the first flickering flame in the first heart that yearned to breathe free…God was in the mix. He set the wheels in motion for a band of farmers to unseat the greatest military power in the world. He, not we, are the source of our nation’s greatness.

At this moment blood is running in our streets, and madness reigns in our media, universities and much of the seats of political power. They are desecrating statues and paintings, renaming products, censoring people who won’t surrender to them. They are reeling in the fever of a false righteous indignation.

To the God-haters of America: there will be no peace, truth or justice at the end of your rampage. You are not erasing the blood of the past. You are smearing a fresh coat of it with your own bloody brush. You are adding new shame to the old shame. One tyranny intends to erase the other. One racial prejudice is being replaced with another.

Aiding and abetting you, are religious leaders—the very ones who should be standing up to you. Men who parade their cowardice as if it were purity. They kowtow to villains in order to appear holy. Trampling on all the vows they made to God, in exchange for an unholy truce.

Google, Facebook and Twitter abuse their power to silence millions—especially the work of God. Will it succeed?

BEWARE! He who guards America’s destiny does not sleep or slumber. He is laughing at your plans. He knows who has hijacked the ideals and innocence of the young and made them pawns in a wicked scheme. The Holy One knows you lust for a weakened America so that you can enforce your dream of world domination.

But God holds a surprise. A surprise for His children and a surprise for His enemies. His plan cannot be resisted. It cannot be defeated. Any and all sophisticated arguments against it will disintegrate. No counsel formed against the Lord will succeed. America’s supernatural origin guarantees there will be an intervention.

Gamaliel’s warning, found in Acts 5:38-39, holds true for the enemies of God in America: “And now I say to you, keep away from these men and let them alone; for if this plan or this work is of men, it will come to nothing; but if it is of God, you cannot overthrow it—lest you even be found to fight against God.”

I solemnly warn you. Take your hands of the church. Take your hands off the Bill of Rights. So far you have contended with fearful politicians and confused preachers, but the Holy God of heaven is stirring Himself. He will not let America go down without a fight. And Gamaliel was correct—you will find yourself fighting against God Himself.

To the discouraged child of God, to the disheartened preacher, and to the remnant of God in America, O you His little ones, He intends to give you the Kingdom.  At this hour, God is separating, training, emboldening, infusing, indwelling, empowering, and instructing the special weapons of love that are uniquely equipped for this battle for the soul of America.

God has sent His signal. Let all who Name His Name depart from evil and prepare for battle. We have no option. Spurgeon wrote, “We must never dream of terms or truce with evil. To suppose that we can let him alone, and all will be well, is a deadly error. We must fight or perish: evil will slay us if we do not slay it. Our only safety will lie in a determined, vigorous opposition to sin, whatever shape it assumes, whatever it may threaten, whatever it may promise. The Holy Ghost alone can maintain in us this enmity to sin.”

The Holy Spirit is roaring out to every soldier of Christ who dwells in America: Take courage! Do not be dismayed. Nothing about this rain of evil that has fallen since the day Trump became President is a surprise to God—or a threat to God.

The Body of Christ in America is like Paul the Apostle on the island of Miletus. A viper sank its fangs and injected lethal venom into Paul. The islanders thought he must be a criminal who justice had caught up with, and that he would die. But Paul merely shook the serpent off into the fire.

Child of God! Shake off your fears into the fire. Shake off your discouragement into the fire. Shake off every last lie that exalts itself against your destiny. The American Church of Jesus Christ—the real church: Wake up! Behold, there are infinitely more on our side than there are on their side.

The Gospel shall yet be honored in America. Miracles will flow like a river. The fact that Satan is screaming just the opposite in your ear—that is proof that what I am telling you is true.

Now, I want you to get up on your feet. I want you to raise holy hands to God and give Him your doubt. Give Him your fear. The mighty God—the awesome God—the everlasting God is about to give you the very miracle that He has given to chosen vessels throughout history. He is about to turn you into a warrior—a warrior who will cause demons not only to tremble but to let loose of lost souls and remove their grip from a dying nation!

NO. THERE IS NO VERSE IN THE BIBLE THAT TELLS YOU TO OBEY EVIL GOVERNMENT OR LAWS.

No. There is no verse in the Bible that tells you to obey evil government or laws. If we don’t realize that now, it will soon be too late. I want to prove to you beyond any doubt that the Bible tells us what we must do in the face of wicked government and laws.

CHRISTIANS WHO BLINDLY PUT THEIR TRUST IN STATE OFFICIALS ARE GOING TO GET BURNED

The time is soon coming when you must decide: should you open your church or business? To settle the question in your heart, you must peel back the layers of lies. There are wrong reasons for reopening, and wrong reasons for remaining closed. But if either reason is based on the “wisdom” of the officials in your State, you are going to get burned.

God can speak to a pastor to keep his church closed, but it had better be God speaking and not just the fear of man. We see ministers every day, soothingly expounding online how they ‘don’t want to offend.’  They tell you in super-spiritual terms that they ‘want to send the right signal to Governors’—but, if that’s their goal, they need to wake up.

People like California Governor Gavin Newsom are unmoved by your gesture. Their malice toward you predated the shutdown, and it will continue long after the shutdown. Compliant churches will have no effect on either the attitude or the plans of leftist Governors. You will get zero, zilch, nada, from them for being compliant, and staying closed.

If pleasing your State government—and not God—is your reason for staying closed, you’re wasting your time. Your reason must be God, and only God.

And, just as importantly, if your motive for reopening a church or business is to thumb your nose at politicians just to prove a point, you will also be burned. You must reopen because your conscience, convictions, and your God have moved you to action. My hope is that after you read my message, it will be clearer to you what action you should take.

Here are things that must not factor into your decision:

The state knows best:

 They lied about their goals. They told us they would reopen when the infection rate flattened. Now, without any rational explanation, they moved the goal post and ordered us to stay closed until there is a cure. Look at me: as is true for so many other diseases, we may never find a cure. For instance, there is no “cure” for the flu, and it kills 40,000 people every year. So, does that mean churches, businesses and schools will stay closed forever? State officials are showing you proof positive that they are making this up as they go along. They are in no position to tell us what we must do.

Exaggeration:

Most of what we hear from the panic-stricken Left—to put it kindly—is an exaggeration. When the State of Georgia reopened, the Left flew into a rage, promising us that thousands would die in a fresh infection. Several days later, we have seen that their claims never transpired and Georgia was right to take a realistic view of the coronavirus. And today, New York’s Governor Cuomo dropped a hint that schools ‘may not be able to open in September,’ which looks very much like a kind of ‘toe in the water’ to test public outrage.

Our witness:

Another argument some pastors make in defense of staying closed, is that it is a bad witness to the community. Once again, they are short-sighted. Millions of Americans, and an increasing number every day, are convinced that we are now a police state. They see the virus as an excuse for a leftist, socialist dictatorship to take over and destroy their livelihood.  So, let me ask you something? How do you think the churches who facilitated state sponsored destruction of their freedoms now appear to their neighbors?  How will they look to people who lost everything they have worked for to this tyranny?

The courts:

The next fact that should show you the truth, is what the courts are doing. They are striking down some of the shutdown orders of certain States, and several Federal Courts agree that States have seized power over churches and businesses illegally. What is most important to you, is not just that the courts correctly sided with the Constitution, but that they also factored in the best medical information available to weigh the risks.

Hatred of Trump:

Here’s the litmus test for reopening or not reopening: Find me one single avid fan of America remaining closed who does not also hate Trump. Everyone knows that these Governors want to destroy Trump and if that means they have to destroy the economy, so be it.

Think of that for a moment. We have people in State Houses who would rather see thousands of people die than have Trump reelected…and you are trying to curry their favor by agreeing to kill your business or permanently damage your congregation? Sorry, there’s no way God is in that—and you are going to get burned.

Why would you trust state officials that the courts, and a growing majority of Americans, consider criminals? The church is the last hope of America, and we must not give in to the plans of those who hate us.

“Shall the throne of iniquity, which devises evil by law, have fellowship with You? They gather together against the life of the righteous, and condemn innocent blood. But the Lord has been my defense, and my God is the rock of my refuge. He has brought upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; the Lord our God shall cut them off” (Psalm 94:20).

NO. THERE IS NO VERSE IN THE BIBLE THAT TELLS YOU TO OBEY EVIL GOVERNMENT OR LAWS.

No. There is no verse in the Bible that tells you to obey evil government or laws. If we don’t realize that now, it will soon be too late. I want to 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 want to show you the weak and pathetic heresy that many believers have come to accept as truth. I want you to see the widespread excuse that is being used for submitting when we should disobey.

Here is an example.  Someone commented to me:

“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).

Joe Biden will be totally manipulated

Joe Biden can be totally manipulated. That makes him the most dangerous person ever to run for President. The dark primal forces have anointed him to be their voice. Jezebel exerted less control over King Ahab than these masters will exert over Biden.

Joe Biden is the property of the darkest coalition of special interests in the world. He will serve them with the kind of devotion and compliance that the false prophet in Revelation 13 is going to serve the Antichrist.

It’s true that he is a doddering, fumbling, stumbling, blooper-machine. He has no convictions, values, ideals or viewpoint. He is a blank canvas who—not only can be—but yearns to be controlled. He is for whatever his masters are for. He believes in what he is told to believe. That is why I repeat: he is far more dangerous than any man or woman who has ever run for President.

The powers behind his campaign are greater than you can possibly imagine. We are talking about unlimited money, unlimited advertising, unlimited access, and unlimited censorship. Consider this: today a liberal blogger tried to run an embarrassing video of Biden, and Twitter immediately took it down.

And so, it has begun.

These vast armadas of henchmen, who reside in every power center of America, have just been waiting for a perfect stooge. And, man, did they find him!

The television media, print media, social media, Hollywood, the Democrat Party, every leftist billionaire and a host of hidden villains too long to list saw the potential for becoming the puppet-master to the most powerful office in the world. They ordered Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg and Mike Bloomberg out of the race. “GET OUT OF OUR WAY. WE HAVE OUR MAN!”

But the most terrifying proof was the look on Bernie Sanders’ face today. He looked contrite, intimidated, and whipped into line. He said that Joe Biden is a decent man and that he will not attack him. Wait. What?!  Why the sudden change from lion to pussycat?

A monster has been created. A beast has been born that will stop at nothing to trash Trump and squash opposition to their man. Anyone who does not pledge their undying loyalty to Joe Biden has no future in the Democrat party, or in life.

The hatred of Trump has just created the vilest coalition in American history—a coalition with one unswerving obsession—to punish Trump for disturbing their vision of a ‘New World Order.’

Here’s what they will try to do:

The Left will now speak with one voice.

Prepare for the greatest unity you have ever seen in leftist politics. There will be insanely exaggerated claims of Biden’s skills. Before summer, you may hear rumors of Joe walking on water. Virtually every outlet will be singing his praises. His record will be expunged and rewritten. Writers, producers, agents and consultants will stun us with his patriotism, accolades, visions of glory, and heroism.

Joe will be taken over. His campaign will be scripted and he will be forbidden to deviate from their instructions.

Quit looking at Joe’s weaknesses. This is about marketing. This is about selling an impressionable society a hand-puppet to usher in an era of every conceivable extreme that will pour into our nation like a tsunami. The floodgates of anti-God, anti-Israel, and anti-family policies will open.

Electing Donald Trump had better become the unifying force for every believer: because electing Joe Biden is the unifying force of the powers of darkness. If they have their way, there will be no America—not as we have known it.

By a miracle, Donald Trump won. God sent him right on time. This mechanism of evil, while formidable, is no match for God’s power. What I am trying to say to everyone who will listen, is that God is putting together another miracle. Perhaps a miracle that will finally rid our nation of these criminals. I do not want anyone to feel despair. What I am trying to awaken is zeal to obey God and bring our nation a great victory—a victory that I believe is the will of God.

Can God spare us? Yes, He can. But not if we assume we deserve it or if we stupidly assume that none of what I have written can happen.

If we hope to save our nation, we must band together.

Army of God! Arise and defeat the darkness!
