Mr. President stand your ground. Child of God hold on just a little longer. God is about to judge a lying spirit that is blanketing America.
The Left has moved from lies to outright lies. The left has moved from backing down when they are caught lying, to not caring if they are caught.
Mario, why are so many being fooled right now? Why is light called dark and dark light? Why is evil and hate called good while truth and love are called evil? Is it possible for a lying demon to blind the masses? Is there a time when minds can be manipulated en masse? Yes! The Bible calls it a lying spirit.
In fact, that spirit can come by the direction of God in order to judge people for their wickedness. 2 Thessalonians 2:11 says, “And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
That lying spirit is seen in Acts 8: 9 “But there was a certain man called Simon, who previously practiced sorcery in the city and astonished the people of Samaria, claiming that he was someone great, 10 to whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, “This man is the great power of God.”
But God stirred me deeply and said that the lying spirit that possesses the left to lie and persecute their enemies—including the president, will be judged. What will that judgement look like?
God will allow lies to grow to such an extreme that it will soon nauseate Americans. The glorification of perversion, the bullying of children, the parade of insane ideas will fill the vat and sicken America. God will see to this. Not only this, but He will bring high profile liars to an end. He will do this right on time. Again, child of God hold on! Mr. President stand your ground!
The condition of America at this moment mirrors 1 Kings 22. Ahab king of Israel wants to talk Jehoshaphat king of Judah into joining him in battle to win back Ramoth Gilead from Syria. Though willing, Jehoshaphat wants to be sure God is in this venture.
Ahab summons 400 prophets. They all say that victory is assured. Jehoshaphat is bothered by the mass agreement and asks if there is one more prophet. Ahab’s response says it all: “There is still one man, Micaiah the son of Imlah, by whom we may inquire of the Lord; but I hate him, because he does not prophesy good concerning me, but evil.”-1 Kings 22:8
They send a man to go get Micaiah. What this messenger says to the prophet is like holding up a mirror up to current America: “Then the messenger who had gone to call Micaiah spoke to him, saying, “Now listen, the words of the prophets with one accord encourage the king. Please, let your word be like the word of one of them, and speak encouragement.”-1 Kings 22: 13
Right now there is only one message allowed, only one viewpoint can be spoken. Deviate from that and you will labeled a racist, homophobe and an Islamophobe. They will make things up to discredit those who oppose.
Now witness the man of God giving the proper response to this indecent request: “And Micaiah said, ‘As the Lord lives, whatever the Lord says to me, that I will speak.’” That must be our conviction right now!
Now we come to one of the greatest moments of courage in history. Micaiah walks into a scene of crushing intimidation. Two kings wearing royal robes sit on thrones staring down at him. One has murder in his eyes. Around him are 400 false prophets who have all given the exact same “word from the Lord.” A vast crowd overflows the royal hall. A dead silence falls when Ahab orders the prophet to prophesy.
Think about it. Micaiah tells Ahab he will be killed in the battle for Ramoth Gilead. It goes even deeper. He reveals to Ahab that a lying spirit who has put lies in the mouth of all the prophets. This is the judgement of God—to fool Ahab to go to his death.
This deception is so deep that even telling Ahab about it will not stop him. Micaiah says in verse 23, “Therefore look! The Lord has put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these prophets of yours, and the Lord has declared disaster against you.” Ahab is seduced by his audience of prophets. He goes to war. A random arrow finds a kink in his armor. He dies right on schedule.
Beloved, don’t think for one moment that this web of lies will decide the nation’s fate. The enemies of God looked invincible in 1 Kings 22. The lies looked unstoppable. Yet, the mighty God acted. Believe me the lying spirit on our nation will be judged.
Do you think God isn’t feeling the prayers of millions of His own in America? Pray and you will get confirmation that what I say is true. Hold on Mr. President. The polls are lying. The threats are lies. The hand of God is about to destroy the lies!
Maybe you can see that something radical needs to happen. May you see how Satan has sold so many believers fool’s gold. Instead of taking up weapons mighty to the tearing down of strongholds, they pursue money, cheap grace, and safe spaces.
Maybe you can see how shallow, flattering, teaching is the perfect greenhouse gas. It’s fumes dull reality. It kills natural urgency. Taking a stand has become a distant fantasy to many…but what about you?
You see how faith has grown flabby. You can bear to see how many don’t know our weapons. They don’t know our authority. They have no marching orders. They don’t know what to say to this generation. Most of all, you feel a deep urgency and you are shocked at how ignorant so many are 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 our freedom. They will force feed our 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. However, we are to be alert not alarmed. Let the dire consequences light a fire in your soul! Is God selecting you to give a weapons grade faith and boldness?
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 religion. 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.
Just for the moment. Forget about Trump. Forget about the Wall. Forget about the “Caravan.” The case to make against the Democratic Party to the American public is simple. It begins with simple questions.
Who has fights to stop prayer in schools? Who has attacked Christmas? Who tried to ban Bibles? Who booed God at their convention? Who sued to put Christian bakers out of business? Who sued to force Nuns to violate their beliefs? Who wants certain Christian doctrine banned as hate speech? Who is constantly trying to get rid of Crosses and Manger scenes? Who said the church must evolve? Who said that religious beliefs must be changed? Who worked to ban Christian clubs on campus?
The winning argument is plain and simple: The Democratic Party is anti-Christian.
John Hawkins said, “The GOP often foolishly retreats from social issues. This is a huge mistake in an era when 76% of the country is Christian and most liberals find sincere Christian beliefs to be repellent. We don’t have to preach at anyone, wag our fingers, or turn into legions of Ned Flanders, but we shouldn’t be afraid to talk about our Christian beliefs, stick up for Christians who are under attack, and hammer the Left for its anti-Christian bigotry. Conservatism is a pro-Christian ideology and liberalism is an anti-Christian ideology. We should never be afraid to drive that point home.”
And where do the Democrats turn to get outside help? Witchcraft. They did not hold a prayer vigil against Judge Kavanaugh—they had witches conjure up a spell. I don’t think they believe in witchcraft. They chose witchcraft for no other reason than it is anti-Christian. And for good measure the witches gave a big donation to Planned Parenthood. Human sacrifice has always been a part of witchcraft.
Why are we afraid to zero in on this greatest of all arguments against Democrats? Are we more concerned about appearing unloving than we are about our religious freedom being destroyed?
This mid-term election is solely about the kind of nation you want your family to live in. Do you want freedom of religion or government openly hostile to your faith?
You need to wake up brother and sister and use our best argument. Your commitment to Christ should come before your race and gender. This is not a left-right or conservative-liberal debate. This is totally a case of…are you pro or anti Christian? We didn’t make it that way, they did.
This Sunday is the last sermon before the midterms. Every pulpit should make this point: Your vote can’t get any more moral. We can’t make a better argument. The Democrats are at war with Christianity.
