“Why Mario, if you’re such a great healer, don’t you go and empty the hospitals?”

That was the loaded question hurled at me on Facebook when we announced Living Proof Reno.

My immediate reaction was to scream, “Jesus is the healer not me!”  And to challenge the asker: “do you sincerely want an answer to your question?  If you deeply yearn to know why Jesus doesn’t empty hospitals today—ask Him.  If your heart is honest, He’ll answer you…but His answer will bring a whole lot more than you bargained for.”

I know this guy doesn’t want an answer…he just wants to bash my faith and our outreach. But maybe you want an answer.

The idea of everyone being healed at an event—hospital or otherwise—is not irrational or unreasonable and deserves to be understood.  Especially when you consider these verses:

Matthew 12:15 “But when Jesus knew it, He withdrew from there. And great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all.”

Luke 6:19 “And the whole multitude sought to touch Him, for power went out from Him and healed them all.”

Luke 9:11 “But when the multitudes knew it, they followed Him; and He received them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God and healed those who had need of healing.”

So why don’t we see more miracles?  There’s a big clue in the account of Jesus rebuking His hometown:   “You will surely say this proverb to Me, ‘Physician, heal yourself! Whatever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in Your country.’” (in other words heal everyone) Then He said, “Assuredly, I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own country. But I tell you truly, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, and there was a great famine throughout all the land; but to none of them was Elijah sent except to Zarephath, in the region of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow. And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet, and none of them was cleansed except Naaman the Syrian.” -Luke 24: 23-27

They wanted a theatrical demonstration.  They cheapened miracles.  Jesus was repulsed at the thought of gifts of God being paraded like a side show.  This was not unlike the blasphemy of the men of Sodom asking Lot to bring out the angels, so they could defile them.

Ordained roosters strutting their stuff on a church stage can have no part in miracles.  In fact, they should be rebuked for asking for the gift!  “Peter answered, may your money perish with you, because you thought you could buy the gift of God with money! 21 You have no part or share in this ministry, because your heart is not right before God.” -Acts 8:20,21

If you seek glamour and riches skip this message.  If you are dazzled by people you have seen powerfully used, save us both time—do not seek miracle power—you have no heart for it.

Miracles are a messy, brutal, gut-wrenching—and yes, horrifying process.  Frankly, seminars that nonchalantly promise to activate gifts are as dangerous as nuclear waste.  Miracles, signs and wonders require constant self-denial and death to self.

Before our day of pay-per-view miracles and prophecy on demand, there were mighty vessels of God.  I knew some of them.  I saw the towering miracles in their meetings. I promise you, they were nothing like the shallowness you see today.  Much of our approach to the supernatural would sicken them.

Let’s peel back misconceptions and be brutally honest.   Mankind has been able to create mind-bending technological breakthroughs.  We can now do in an instant what previously took decades…but we will never find a shortcut to supernatural power.

The Holy Spirit’s work never changes.  His process of taking raw material and making a living breathing conduit of His power has never changed.  In 2,000 years, it has not been shortened or compromised one iota.

Power always packs a purpose. Luke 4: 17 “And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written: 18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; 19 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”

The most powerful part of those verses is this phrase: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because.”  Your “because” ruins you for all other plans, purposes, and goals.  You must surrender to the one thing you are assigned to do.  You must be able to list your purpose, articulate it simply and clearly and execute it with extreme focus.

Our greatest need today is a heart full of the passion that moves God to answer the prayer for miracles.  We love to blame all sorts of things for our lack of miracles when the answer is right under our nose—we just don’t want to meet God’s price.  We can live without signs and wonders.

At this moment, I am getting ready for Reno.  I can’t live without supernatural power.  When I pray, I feel destiny.  I hear God warning me: “what I will do under the tent in Reno will frighten you if you are not ready.”   That’s why  I am begging the soldiers of Jesus in this region to be ready—to go and get those who suffer in great sickness—to bring them to the tent.

What is the secret to the miracle-working power of God?  Die to self and do the work of God.  Jesus said,  In  John 14:12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. 13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.

To command devils and diseases you must first confess that these signs should always follow the preaching.  Then abandon yourself to God’s process of imparting authority.   E.M. Bounds said,“The preacher must throw himself–with all the abandon of a perfect, self-emptying faith and a self-consuming zeal–into his work for the salvation of men.  The men who take hold of and shape a generation for God must be hearty, heroic, compassionate, and fearless martyrs.”  -E.M. Bounds

Pitting the Bible and the Holy Spirit against each other

Satan seduced many into separating the Holy Spirit and the Bible—pitting them against each other.  The Bible not only predicted this deception—it exposed the motive behind it.

2 Timothy 4:3 says “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers…”  What they can’t endure is the Bible.  They drop the God card to fulfill their lusts and blame the Holy Spirit.

The drinking, the carousing, and the blatant new age preaching, did not creep into the church overnight.  It insinuated itself slowly, quietly and under the cover of good intentions.

It began in small doses.  One preacher said, “Why do we trust a book they didn’t have more than the Spirit they did have?”  Another preacher said, “we’re not supposed to worship a book.”

They will tell you they are trusting in the voice of the Spirit more than a book.  What they are really hearing is their own voice…or worse.  They don’t deny the inerrancy of scripture; they simply claim direct revelation from God that’s equal to the Bible.

Bible study has become passé.  Many seek constant prophetic words.  They trust these words without comparing them against scripture.

The Holy Spirit has become on demand.  You’ve all seen the Facebook ads where “prophets” will give you a daily word from the Lord.  Some even charge money to give you a prophetic word. 

A young revivalist claimed to get more from “an angel” than from the Bible.  He even wrote on his website, “I have had experiences in the Spirit that cannot be explained by the Bible.”  Not long after this, he left his wife and children for his secretary.  He is still in ministry defending his experience.

People blame all kinds of things on “leadings of the Holy Spirit.” “The Spirit told me I can leave my husband and children because He wants me to be happy.”  “You may not like the way I dress, but the Holy Spirit does.”  One preacher even compared the Spirit to marijuana and said, “I am toking the Ghost.”

Here’s a typical conversation with one of these:

“I am not just forgiven of the sins I have committed, and I am also forgiven in advance of the ones I will commit.  Therefore, I never need to repent or confess my sin.”

“That’s crazy, 1 John 1:8 says, ‘If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.’”

“Oh, well that was not written to Christians.”

“No Bible scholar believes that.  In any case, that means the Apostle John wasn’t a Christian because he said “if we.”
You can’t prove that.  Where did you get it?”

“It was revealed to me by the Spirit.”

Addiction to alcohol, drugs, pornography and a host of other vices overtake believers because the natural protection of the Bible is erased.  Psalm 119:11 says, “Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You.”

Why am I condemning all of this?  Because the Bible commands me to do so:  2 Corinthians 4: 2 says, “But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.”

Tuning out the Bible to hear the Spirit has flooded the church with the most carnal and self-centered believers ever.  To reject the Bible while seeking a word from God is to toy with witchcraft. 

The Holy Spirit and the Bible exist in unbreakable agreement.  The Spirit will take you to the Bible, and the Bible will take you to the Holy Spirit.

One of the prime purposes of the Holy Spirit is to help us understand and remember the Bible.  “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.” – John 14:26

You can be sure that if you are not regularly reading the Bible, God will avoid speaking to you through prophecy.  To do so creates a dangerous habit.  Without a biblical foundation, you will have no way to judge prophetic words.

The superiority the Bible over the prophetic is clearly shown by the fact we are told to judge prophecy but never to judge scripture.  2 Timothy 3:16 “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness…”

Daily Bible study is a hallmark of those who seek truth.  Acts 17: 11 “Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.”  True revival is always Bible based.  True preaching will quote scripture liberally. 

We are at a crucial point.  If the Body doesn’t repent of this foolishness, America is sunk.  That is no longer the mindless wrangling of doomsday prophets…it’s a clear reality.

However, there is great hope.  The combination of the Word of God revealed by the Holy Spirit will more than match today’s wickedness.  God not knew the insanity of today was coming—He took steps to prepare a special relationship, that would produce special powers for His children.

But, if even a small remnant repent, gets back in the Word, and obeys the Holy Spirit, He will build an army and it can prevail.   1 Samuel 14: 6 promises this: “Then Jonathan said to the young man who bore his armor, “Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the Lord will work for us. For nothing restrains the Lord from saving by many or by few.”

Christians who hate Trump

They are the Christians who hate Trump.  Let’s call it for what it is: hate.  It is their hate—strange for professed Christians—that dulls their ability to see the inaccuracy of their comments and their myopic views.

One sanctimonious ranting Christian said, “there’s nothing Biblical about Trump.”  Actually, there’s nothing Biblical about that statement.  The prophet Daniel served Nebuchadnezzar.  Daniel recognized the role a pagan king played in God’s unfolding drama.  The church’s ability to work with Trump is totally Biblical.

Now I must clarify, lest I incur the wrath of Trump supporters.  I am not calling Trump a pagan king—I’m sure he much more moral than his enemies know—I am saying that if Daniel could work with Nebbie, how much more we can work with the Don.

I tried hard to figure out believers who hate Trump.  Our side won a long overdue and miraculous victory and they choose to aid and abet the other side.  Is it because their favorite “Christian” didn’t win and they are sour grapes?

And why didn’t these conservative Christians hold Reagan to the same standard?  They adored him even while Nancy was studying horoscopes in the White House.

They didn’t require any president to be a squeaky clean pastor until Trump.

Yeah his tweets can be a bit much.  And okay, president Trump is not as smooth as Reagan…but, maybe we don’t need smooth right now.

But there is something else that is really strange, (hypocritical is more like it) why didn’t these guardians of morality speak out against Obama?  T.D. Jakes even attacked Franklin Graham for questioning Obama’s Christian Faith.  Told him not to judge a brother.  Hold that thought as we explore another question…

How could you not question Obama’s Christianity?  Obama begged the question by dropping the Christian card whenever it suited him (something Trump never does).   Meanwhile, Barack fought for same sex marriage, late term abortion, and was the most Biblically hostile president in our history.

Click on this link to see the list of his acts of hostility toward Christians   https://wp.me/p1vrzp-3DQ  

Back to Jakes.  So why do so many Christian leaders—who said it was wrong to judge Obama—judge Trump?

Trump is not a pastor.  He is a businessman who loves America.  As far as his faith?  I am not qualified to determine his spiritual depth since I’ve never had the chance to meet the man.

“He is like Hitler and the church is being fooled” said another comment.  Please remove your tinfoil hats and listen.  Hitler never had 98% of the media against him.  Trump has never called for a new constitution.  Hitler never tried to protect Israel.  I could go on and on.

Maybe if Trump had been the first president to address the march for life.  Maybe if he had chosen an on fire born-again vice president.  Maybe if he has rescinded executive orders that banned federal funds from Christian organizations.  Maybe if he overruled the Johnson Amendment that banned the free speech of pastors.  Maybe if he had moved the American Embassy to Jerusalem.  Maybe if he had put someone on the Supreme Court who helped Christian bakers practice freedom of religion.  Maybe then you would support him.  Oh wait…he did all that.

God has done a miracle and the enemy wants to make short work of the amazing breakthroughs we are witnessing by dividing the church.  Instead of being a religious outlier you should be thanking God, praying, supporting the president, and voting.

God is selecting people and working in them for unmatched power to attack evil.

Satan is flooding the world with evil while Christians have grown passive.  Believers are ignorant of what God expects them to do to stand against the torrent of wickedness.

Shallow, flattering teaching is the perfect greenhouse gas.  It’s fumes dull reality. It kills natural urgency.  Taking a stand becomes a distant fantasy.

Satan has sold the church fool’s gold.  Instead of taking up weapons mighty to the tearing down of strongholds, we pursue money, cheap grace, and celebrity.

Our faith has grown flabby. We don’t know our weapons.  We don’t know our authority.  We don’t know our marching orders.  We don’t know what to say to this generation.  Most of all, we are ignorant about what is right around the corner.

Peter recognized when government crossed the line.  Acts 4: 19 But Peter and John replied, “Which is right in God’s eyes: to listen to you, or to him? You be the judges! 20 As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.”

He also understood what to do when government tries to ban the Gospel: “Acts 5: 28 saying, “Did we not strictly command you not to teach in this name? And look, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this Man’s blood on us!”

29 But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.”

They are coming after your freedom.  They will force feed your children the Antichrist agenda. That is…unless we wake up to our purpose and destiny.   I am calling you out for special power in this hour.

If you are finally ready, then do these things:

1. You must be filled or refilled with the Holy Spirit.  You must have fire, or you must have fresh fire.   The courage to face the onslaught of hatred that will be thrown at you can never be met by human power.  To say what you need to say, to obey when you need to obey can’t come from human motivation.  You must have the same Spirit that fueled world-changing saints in all times. God never meant for anyone to preach or lead without a clear baptism of the Holy Spirit.

2. You must flow in signs and wonders.  Our culture is beyond words.  They must see proof of the power of God.  God means for you to provide that proof.  The authority you need won’t come cheaply or instantly.  (Read my blog on the price of God’s miracle working power https://wp.me/p1vrzp-53e

3. Get ready to do something for God that will boggle your mind.  God is selecting people and working in them for unmatched power to attack evil.  Habakkuk 1: 5 “Look among the nations and watch—Be utterly astounded! For I will work a work in your days Which you would not believe, though it were told you.”

He is creating people who can turn the tide of wickedness.  He doesn’t care about your age or your education.  He searches for someone who is travailing over the evil and will die without power and purpose.  They want to be in the fight—they want to be in the thick of it.  Isaiah 6: 8 says, “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

4. Prepare to pray in a way you never imagined.  God is pulling you out of the damaged religious crowd into special intimacy with him.  You are not going to pray like before.  E.M Bounds said, “To say prayers in a decent, delicate way is not heavy work. But to pray really, to pray till hell feels the ponderous stroke, to pray till the iron gates of difficulty are opened, till the mountains of obstacles are removed, till the mists are exhaled and the clouds are lifted, and the sunshine of a cloudless day brightens-this is hard work, but it is God’s work, and man’s best labor.”

What do all of these things I am asking you to do have in common?  Every one of them involves a leap out of dead church life.  They are a courageous declaration of war on the godless ideologies that are destroying our nation.  They are an irrevocable decision to be in the middle of God’s greatest acts in history.

Mighty Warrior: A word from the Lord for you.

You were led into a relationship with Jesus where you no longer fit in anywhere.  What thrilled others left you scratching your head, wondering how they could be so easily satisfied.
You feel the evil and the blasphemy.  You are grieved to see God’s name and honor smeared both inside and outside the church.  You wondered “how long Lord?”  How long before I can take up the sword of the Lord and bring wrath down on demons?
You have wondered what is happening to you.  It seems that everything the enemy has is being thrown at you.  Many have pulled away from you—including those you have trusted for years—not understanding the path that you have chosen.
People made big promises to you that turned out to be a puff of smoke.  You were left empty at the very moment you believed a great breakthrough was coming.
God promised you something when you began this journey; but now it all seems like a cruel fantasy.  You have cried to the Lord “why have you awakened this hope in me if this will never come to pass.”  You dared not even tell your family and closest friends your true feelings.
Do you want to understand what is happening to you right now?  While you weren’t looking, God reached down and did important work inside you. God tested you in the furnace for holy reasons.
A great self-emptying is in progress.  Heaven is asking questions about you and the furnace is answering them.
-He is making you someone can be trusted with great influence and power.
-He is making you someone who has freely received and will freely give.
-He is making you someone who will be so focused and determined that you will never quit.
-He is making you someone who obeys only God—who only goes forth at the command of God—who gives all credit and glory to God.
Let not the darkness of this hour rush your preparation.  Fear not!  It will not be too late by the time of your breakthrough.
Is this the darkest it has ever been?  Does it seem it can get no worse?  Then beloved, consider the intensity of this attack as a sign that your breakthrough is at hand…the devil saves the worst for last, but God saves the best for last.
Isaiah 55: 8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.
10 “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,
And do not return there,
But water the earth,
And make it bring forth and bud,
That it may give seed to the sower
And bread to the eater,
11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
12 “For you shall go out with joy,
And be led out with peace;
The mountains and the hills
Shall break forth into singing before you,
And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree,
And instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree;
And it shall be to the Lord for a name,
For an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”

 

 

 

 

It will start happening right away.

In a private dialogue, the Pope is understood to have said to Juan Carlos Cruz—a victim of sexual abuse at the hands of Catholic priests— “Juan Carlos, that you are gay does not matter.  God made you like this and loves you like this and I don’t care.  The pope loves you like this. You have to be happy with who you are.”

Earlier, the Pope made news for saying there was no hell.  Later, the Catholic Church denied he ever said this but no denial has come from the Pope himself.

These statements are a blatant denial of the Bible.  That is nothing new.  In fact, we are about to see a massive push by ministers to abandon the Bible.  How could this be happening?

It began subtly.  A popular pastor would dodge questions on talk shows about hell, or Jesus being the only way to salvation.  They artfully defended their dodge by saying they were trying to reach a wider audience.

The trend did not stop there.  Pastor Andy Stanley, who leads 30,000 people in Atlanta, took it to the next level by teaching that the Bible should not be used in soul winning because the Bible while inerrant, is not sufficient.  He insists that since old Testament stories are so hard to take literally our faith should be based more on the Resurrection of Jesus.  But Jesus Himself said, “If they do not hear Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be convinced if someone should rise from the dead.” — Luke 16: 31

Bible abandonment is also widespread in Spirit-filled churches where prophetic words have replaced Bible teaching.  They infer that we should trust the Holy Spirit over the Bible—which is an insane false dichotomy.  One spirit-filled Pastor even said: “This old book is divisive; I am only going to trust the Holy Spirit.”

What is causing this betrayal of the Bible?  The answer is, the global, sexual, and social justice revolution.  A tidal wave ostracizes the doctrine on hell, moral purity and Jesus as the savior of the world.  Ministers find the pull to compromise irresistible.

To shy away from truth is the worst thing the church can do right now.  There is still a window of opportunity for moral awakening…but that window is closing.  Here is what you should do:

First, take your stand for Jesus and the power of the Word of God.  2 Timothy 3:5 says, “having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!”  Neither your loyalty, nor your money should be going to religious businesses that attack the Bible.  Taking your stand means to get out of churches that are ashamed of the Bible. This is not a case of being judgmental or holier-than-thou, it is a matter of obeying the word of God.

Next, do not give into fear.  The Bible isn’t going anywhere:

  Isaiah 40:8 “The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.”

Jeremiah 1:12 Then the Lord said to me, “You have seen well, for I am [actively] watching over My word to fulfill it.”

2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Matthew 24:35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.

Finally, I must make these parting points.

Satan has done a masterwork sidelining the church as he plunges the earth into darkness.  Now, you can believe there is nothing we can do about it—or you can join the amazing remnant that God has foreordained for this hour—a remnant that will be armed with special power to convict sinners, and work miracles in the mighty name of Jesus.

You can accept that America is too far gone but I see Americans struggling to hear the truth—even the hard verses in the Bible.  We saw this in Las Vegas!  Those who love the Bible need to wake up and let God use them to keep this Word for the next generation.

“Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.  For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.” -Jude 3,4   The Bible tells us we must take up the defense of the Word of God that was first delivered to the saints.  Let’s obey God.

 

THE CHURCH IS FALLING BACK INTO OBAMA ERA APATHY

Remember the horror you felt when you thought Hillary might be president?  Save that feeling, you’ll likely need it this November.  Up until today I could say Republicans had an edge for the midterms because of money and the victories Trump has won.  Now, I can’t say that.
An old familiar virus is infecting the church.  It is removing the sense of urgency that got Trump Elected.  It is bringing back failed ideas that sidelined the church in two disastrous presidential elections.
In 2008 we were warned what Barack Obama would do.  Pastors didn’t think it was right to get involved in politics.  On top of that, millions of Christians, with a murky understanding of the Bible voted for him.  Those fallacies are back in the church.
Obama ended up being far worse than we could have imagined.  The vast machinery of the left that he set in place is still dismantling our freedom.  How soon we  forget  the price of apathy.
By taking the House and the Senate, the left can do as much damage as having Hillary in the White House.  The first thing they will do is impeach Donald Trump.  While it will take more than impeachment to remove him from office—they will move to do that next.
Before you write me off as an alarmist let me ask some simple questions?
Do you see Christian Leaders trying to rally the church to stop leftist candidates?  Think about what everyone is preaching right now.  Do you hear anything about the looming threat to our freedom and our children’s?  My guess is that you don’t.
Do you notice how many in the church are apathetic because they think that Trump’s victory is the only real victory we need?  They are blissfully ignorant of the need for a whole new effort to organize and defeat the coming threat.
Do you realize that there is only one thing you need to know to vote in the midterm election?  It goes beyond the fact that they want to take away the second amendment, they would to return to the deficits and government regulations that were strangling our economy and they would go back to the foreign policy that endangered us.
Here is the one thing you must remember: The Democratic Party has declared war on Christianity.  Think about it…
Who bankrupted Christian bakers?  Who devastated the Little Sisters of the Poor?  Who told our chaplains not to mention Christ to our soldiers?  Who told pastors they would lose their tax exemption if they told their congregations how to vote?  Who put Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s nonprofit status in suspense for telling voters to vote their conscience?  Who booed God and Israel at their convention? Who changed marriage?  Who made your children go to schools with transgender bathrooms?

(Check out my blog on how Obama was the most Biblically hostile President in history)    https://wp.me/p1vrzp-3DQ 

You are about to see the vilest campaign in American history.  The left will divest itself of all decency.  There will be a billion dollars burned on a propaganda campaign to label anyone who supports Trump or Republicans as racist, sexist, homophobic, and mentally challenged.
Christians are just not prepared—at least not yet—to stand against this wicked assault.At this moment, an old lie is resurfacing—it is the idea that to be sweet Christians we must not take stands that make us look bad.
The other lie is the one that says since God is sovereign and omnipotent we should just trust  the outcome of November.
The Word of God shows us that God has chosen to use prayer, repentance, and obedience.  2 Chronicles 7:14 begins with “if my people.”  That proves it is on us.
Between now and November I will be doing everything God tells me to warn and provoke the church to action.
