Christian Leader: Do you really care about your people?

Some of you Christian leaders won’t mention politics from your pulpit. You don’t take public stands on abortion, same sex marriage, or the leftist takeover of America. I am talking to those of you who won’t support Donald Trump. You who believe all these subjects are divisive and outside the jurisdiction of your pulpit.

Here’s the thing—by doing this you are hurting the people, and hurting them badly. You are hurting them in ways you never imagined.

Not only that, but hurting the people is more dangerous than you might think. You will give an account before God for withholding truth, care, protection and guidance. Hebrews 13:17 is a warning to believers to “obey those who rule over you, and be submissive, for they watch out for your souls, as those who must give account. Let them do so with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you.”

You know what’s even more chilling about those verses? They tell the people that they should put their trust in you because you realize you must give an account to God.

I did an experiment when preaching recently in Fresno. I asked a packed house some questions.

“How many of you have been threatened at work for witnessing?” Hands went up.

“How many of you have had a child sent home for wearing a Christian T-shirt?” Hands went up.

“How many of you have been fired because of what you said about your beliefs on social media?” Hands went up again.

Then I turned to all the pastors and leaders and asked them, “Are you preaching comfort to these sheep? Are you training them to give an answer? Are you taking action against persecution in your area by confronting politicians and government about religious freedom?”

These and many other kinds of things that the Left does are inflicting pain on your people. They should not be forced to be silent or suffer because they are not properly trained to push back on leftist bullies. Neither should their children have to suffer.

In my book Vessels of Fire and Glory I wrote: “Pastors who refuse to clarify their political positions are ignoring hazards their people face every day. Politics hurt. Its costs Christian bakers their business, it costs believers being fired from their jobs, students getting expelled. It’s why men in bizarre women’s clothes and make up are reading to children in public Libraries. Politics is why you and I are accused of hate speech. Politics is why many Christian outlets have stopped performing marriages. Politics is why your tax dollars fund the cost of abortion. You did not leave the Democrat party, it left you. They told God to get out. They booed God and Israel at their convention. They champion everything your Bible condemns. They are now controlled by the radical wing of their party, a wing that will gladly finance terror and give illegal criminals Constitutional rights. What part of that is still unclear to you? THIS IS NOT ABOUT LEGISLATING MORALITY…IT’S ABOUT STOPPING THE LEGISLATION OF IMMORTALITY.”

Peter told the Sanhedrin officials he would not obey their commands if it contradicted God’s word. Acts 4:19 “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, 20 for we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.”

Then he did something else—something every loving leader should do: Verse 23 “And being let go, they went to their own companions and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said to them.” Peter told them, because the threat affected them as well.

The solution was a prayer for boldness to tell the truth and for miracles to confirm the Gospel. Verse 29: “Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, 30 by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus.”

How can you ask God to look at a threat that you refuse to admit is a threat?

My last question is about the debacle of Trump’s impeachment. Is it just because it’s Trump that you can’t see the catastrophe? Is it because it is just easier avoid confrontation? Are you aware that your silence comes at a price you can never repay?

We will all pay with our children’s future if we do not openly rebuke this miscarriage of justice. Democrats have invented a crime. Then they invented a way to prosecute that crime. Then they told you that they would use their invented power to destroy anyone who gets in their way.

If they can do this to Trump they can do this to you, and worst of all, they can do it to the souls God told you to take care of. If you love them—inform them—train them—encourage them—and empower them, to walk in the truth, and in the might of God.

Acts 20: 26 “Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all men. 27 For I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God.”

RUDY…RUDY…RUDY!

By Mario Murillo

Part one:  Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Rudy Giuliani said that Obama does not love America.  Then the firestorm began.   Press secretary Josh Earnest said “I can tell you that it’s sad to see when somebody who has attained a certain stature and even admiration tarnishes that legacy so thoroughly.”

Who is tarnishing their legacy Josh?  You are Obama’s press secretary which right now is the American equivalent of Baghdad Bob. 

No one can escape that fact that Obama does not love America.   No one put it better than Pastor Robert Jeffress.  He quoted Obama:  “I want to fundamentally change America.”   Jeffress said “can you imagine a man saying to his fiancée “I want to fundamentally change you”?

Josh and his ilk are yanking that moment out of the Wizard of OZ saying to all of America “Do not arouse the wrath of the great and powerful OZ and then says “pay no that man behind the curtain.”

 We are not supposed to look at the man behind the Hope and Change curtain?   Do not arouse the wrath of the man of smoke, mirrors, hollow promises and deception on a scale never seen before?

We are supposed to believe he loves America.  We are supposed to be vilified if we say he doesn’t?   No one has said louder and clearer than Obama himself.  His contempt for Christians, Jews, Conservatives, and anyone else who opposes him is well documented.

Part two: Nobody said it better than Dorothy…”if you were really great and powerful, you would keep your promises.”

 He never got you the job he promised.  He never brought the Arab spring he promised.  He never defended and protected the Constitution like he promised.  He never made our allies loves us as he promised.  He never did anything he promised except to “fundamentally change America” into a weaker and more divided nation than when he took office.

Obama loves us?  He spies on those he loves?  He uses the IRS as an attack dog on those he loves?   He goes to bed instead of saving those in Benghazi he loves?   He relentlessly refuses to protect us from our enemies because he loves us?   He refuses to admit that there is a war against us because he loves us?

 Part three:  I was spontaneously chanting Rudy, Rudy, Rudy!   I have zero concern for Rudy Giuliani’s legacy.  His true love for the City of New York cannot be questioned.  The heroic way he held that city together after 911 will resound in history.

He applied the same matter of fact courage in stating the obvious about this president.   Not only did he state the obvious, he was kinder and gentler than he could have been.  Rudy was well within the mark.  He tapped the nail on the head.  He understated the single most glaring fact about this president.   The question is not “does Obama love America”, the real question is “how much does actually he hate it?”

Now watch this amazing video of Rudy Giuliani

OBAMA CAMPAIGN TEAM ARRIVES IN ISRAEL TO DEFEAT NETANYAHU IN MARCH ELECTIONS

Obama condemns Russia for allegedly interfering in our presidential election.  Look what he did in the election in Israel.

OBAMA CAMPAIGN TEAM ARRIVES IN ISRAEL TO DEFEAT NETANYAHU IN MARCH ELECTIONS

Just days after the Obama White House accused House Speaker John Boehner of “breaking protocol” by inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a joint session of Congress, a team of up to five Obama campaign operatives has reportedly arrived in Israel to lead a campaign to defeat the Israeli Prime Minister in upcoming national elections scheduled for March 17.

The anti-Netanyahu, left wing Israeli newspaper Haaretz reports a group called “One Voice,” reportedly funded by American donors, is paying for the Obama campaign team. That group is reportedly being led by Obama’s 2012 field director Jeremy Bird.

As Jerusalem Post columnist and putative Knesset candidate Caroline Glick reported on her Facebook page, “Obama won’t meet Benjamin Netanyahu in Washington when he addresses the Joint Houses of Congress in March because of Netanyahu’s visit’s proximity to the Israeli elections. And Obama, of course believes in protocol and propriety which is why he won’t get involved.” And yet, Glick adds, “He’s just sending his 2012 field campaign manager to Israel to run a campaign to defeat Netanyahu.”

For all the harsh accusations of foreign interference currently being leveled against GOP Speaker John Boehner, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer, reports of Obama operatives actively working to unseat a democratically elected leader of a strong U.S. ally is hardly the news it might appear to be.

The Obama White House has aggressively worked to defeat allied leaders it has not liked and to elect or re-elect foreign leaders it does like. As the Times of Israel recently reported, the list of Obama Administration meddling in foreign elections is a long one.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, an Obama Administration ally, was hosted at the White House prior to recent German elections. Former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown of the left wing Labor Party visited 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, not once, but twice prior to British elections. Those were won by Conservative party leader David Cameron, who himself visited Washington last week at Obama’s invitation to lobby the U.S. Congress against adopting a new sanctions measure to help confront Iran’s burgeoning nuclear program. Oddly, that’s the very issue Obama and the mainstream media now roundly condemn John Boehner for involving himself in.
