THE UNDERGROUND AMERICAN CHURCH

Our most important task at this time, is first: to keep the church in America from being driven underground, and, second: to rebuke the lukewarm believers who are guilty of helping the left to drive it underground.

You can’t convince many Christians that freedom of speech and freedom of religion are about to vanish.  They refuse to believe it! They chalk it up to ‘fake news’ or ‘conspiracy theories.’

But they are wrong. And because of their naiveté, they will be blind-sided. We have entered a time of the greatest threat American Christians have ever faced.

Ignore the warning of the Holy Spirit at your own peril.

The Left has turned many believers into timid, guilt-mongers, who are more worried about global warming, the poor, and social justice than obeying God. They are unwitting traitors and fools who do the bidding of those who would—if they could—destroy the Church.

War has been declared on the American Church. The lukewarm are in denial.  But their denial will not exempt or protect them from the storm. Only the righteous who take heed can hope for protection.

Speaking of helping the left: I am so weary of Hillsong Church in Australia, after they tweeted that Trump was a bully in the debate. I thought, “What are they thinking? Why are they collaborating with the avowed enemies of the American church?”

Censorship is real and it is lethal. Hillsong is but one symptom of the disorder that keeps the church from waking up. Their brand of diluted Christianity will make them acceptable to the Liberals and may exempt them from persecution, but those who are truly following Christ will face very real persecution for remaining true to scripture.

Hillsong has a long list of controversial actions, and, sure, Pastor Brian Houston apologized, but seriously that is what they do so often…act outrageously, and then say they are sorry. But there is no excuse for these ungodly stunts: from the Naked Cowboy in the women’s conference, followed by Naked Santa, the scantily clad dancers belting out a sexy, Cabaret version of ‘Silent Night,’ and many others—they have no moral high ground, and have lost all right to criticize our President. And, furthermore, we don’t need this right now. It smacks of deception.

Before you reject me, consider the long list of Truths the church could speak just ten years ago that are totally banned now. The Cross, the Blood of Jesus, the reality of Hell, sexual purity, and marriage.  Preachers are already deleting these doctrines from their sermons.  They’ll lie to you and say they are doing it to reach a bigger audience. The truth is they are running from the persecution.

It pains me to say this but unless there is a miracle in November, your children and grandchildren will have to figure out how to survive in a future world where you either renounce Christ or you will be banished socially and economically. Want to know the scariest part? You will not be here to help them.

What can we do to stop the church from being driven underground?   No one who is truly a man or woman of God can seriously entertain the idea that we should stop preaching these truths.  That is not even an option.  What then can we do to reverse the assault on the American church?

Our first duty is to keep the American church above ground by directly and vehemently opposing the Left, by using our rights as Americans. Trying to seem ‘nice’ by watering down the Gospel, plays into Satan’s scheme.

The revelation I am about to relate struck me with paralyzing clarity. I am amazed I never saw it before. But there is one condition:

Nothing I am about to say will help you, not one point I am making will have its intended impact, unless you have a heart for it.  If you are still in denial about what is happening, I can’t help you—this message can’t help you.  If you think I am dispensing alarmist extremism, then you are just another part of the threat…and are unwittingly collaborating with the enemy.

But, if you want to hear God’s heart on this crisis—if you hunger for more than half-answers, then you have come to the right place.  You can ask the Holy Spirit the most important question you could ever ask: “What will You do when a nation tries to silence Your church?”

Here it comes:

When the leaders of Jerusalem arrested Peter, they didn’t know what to charge him with or how to punish him.  They knew they had to silence the church.  There was no doubt about their intention.  They were prepared to do anything to stop the spread of the Gospel—so what was stopping them?  Answer that, and you will know what will keep the American church from going underground.  

God stopped the intentions of the rulers of Jerusalem by healing the man at the Gate Beautiful. A spectacular miracle had occurred!  He had occupied the most visible and lucrative begging station in Jerusalem.  Everyone knew him.  Word of his miraculous healing filled Jerusalem, and a mad chorus of praise was rising over the Eternal City. That my friend, is what we need in America right now!

“And seeing the man who had been healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it. But when they had commanded (Peter and John) to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves, saying, “What shall we do to these men? For, indeed, that a notable miracle has been done through them is evident to all who dwell in Jerusalem, and we cannot deny it”” (Acts 4:14-16).

The Holy Spirit had revealed to him the divine secret to keeping the church above ground, and Peter had clearly settled on a course of action—the very action we need to take today. It is the action we are about to take in Fresno, in our tent. Peter left with a battle plan. He was armed with critical information.

He gathered the people of God, and ordered them to pray.  He was about to pray a prayer that is the precise model for our crisis. He faced the same threat we face.  Remember that word: “threat.”

You will recall I told you that nothing good can come to you from my message, unless you see how urgent the hour has become?  Peter began his prayer by calling the situation ‘a threat.’  We must do this, also.

In Acts chapter 4, verses 29-30, Peter prayed: “Now, Lord, look upon their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your Holy Servant Jesus.”

Peter is showing us that boldness is the weapon of choice.  Only boldness will tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

Next, Peter is admitting that the vehicle for that boldness is signs and wonders.  God must stretch His hand over our angry culture, perform supernatural healings, and overrule the agenda of Democrat-Socialist-Marxists.  Such is the case today.  Now look at how God answered Peter’s prayer:

“And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness” (Acts 4:31).

Not only were they filled with the Holy Spirit and boldness, but God answered their prayer for miracles.  In the next chapter, the very shadow of Peter was healing the masses (Acts 5:15-16).

Ignore those who aren’t willing.  Set the time and place to go to homes, houses of worship, schools, offices—anywhere where true prayer can be raised up to God.  Prove this promise and see that the Spirit will fall; you will receive a tongue of fire, and miracles will come.  I am not talking about self-absorbed emotional light touches.  I am talking about undeniable, medically verified, city-shaking divine healings.

If even a handful who are reading this will reach Critical Mass. If only a remnant is struck by the lightning of divine urgency and pursue the miracle-working God, then we will see in our day, the way they saw it in that day: that no law, no argument, and no politician will be able to drive the American Church underground!

THIS ELECTION IS A CHOICE BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL

What we now know to be settled fact would sound like a conspiracy theory to prior generations of Americans. The idea that the news media would march lockstep with one political party and leftist billionaires to control what we see, hear, and what we are allowed to think.

An accurate gauge of any society is to examine what they release and what they restrain. Look at what was restrained and released in the last few weeks. California passed a law, Senate Bill 145, that “gives judges a say on whether to list someone as a sex offender for having oral or anal sex with a minor.” In other words, making it legal for a 24-year-old man to have sex with a 14-year-old child, even if it involved sodomy. They are releasing the crime of pedophilia.

Then right after that, Virginia passed a law that would fine Christian Schools $100,000 every time they opposed LGBTQ teachings or refused to pay for sex-change operations through taxes. This a blatant attack on the First Amendment rights of Christians.

What do these and every other heinous new law have in common? What does every law that restricts church attendance, attacks church doctrine, tries to silence pastors, and tries to ban the Bible, have in common? What do all the cities where looting and arson occur nightly, have in common? What do the cities that arrest these thugs, and then merely release them the next morning, have in common?  What does every major city where crime, poverty, addiction, suicide, and despair prevail, have in common? What does every city where millions of innocent Americans live in fear for their lives, have in common? And finally, who exclusively practices and defends the nameless savagery of murdering a human baby after it is born?

All of these evils have one thing in common: The Democrat Party.

I cannot understand why any Christian can’t figure out that this election is about choosing between good and evil. How can anyone sincerely pray, “Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil,” and then vote Democrat?

Lukewarm Christian leaders will scream at me for writing this. But you will not hear an argument that proves I am wrong. You will hear trite phrases, but no facts to back up their reasoning.

The debate was pathetically rigged. It was rigged electronically. It was rigged by the moderator. It was rigged by the entire leftist regime! And all you took away from this sham was that Trump was combative? How can Trump’s temperament matter, compared to Democrat debauchery?

Did you miss the most notable development of the entire “debate?” Joe Biden said, “I am the Democratic Party.” That destroys any excuse you have. That statement removes any possibility of any follower of Christ voting Democrat.

He is saying, “I am the leader of the party that is doing all of these things.” If you vote for him, you are aiding and abetting the entire panoply of wickedness they have committed in the past, and the greater evil they are about to commit after the election.

And do not think that sitting this one out will exonerate you. If you could have helped to stop Biden and didn’t, to you, it is evil.  Detrick 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.”  This election is about choosing good or evil. Which will you choose?

JUDGMENT WILL FALL ON PARTS OF AMERICA THIS NOVEMBER AND PASSOVER OTHERS.

In November, you will begin to see the judgment of God fall on America. Strangely, it will be a surgical strike that will devastate some, but will pass over others. There are many voices making similar predictions, but my message to you is about what you should do to prepare for the convulsive events that are nearly upon us. My message to you contains both sobering truth and rock-solid encouragement.

Let’s begin with the most important thing to understand about the impending judgment coming in November: It is because of God’s fierce and firm decision to spare America, and because He has decided to save our nation.

It is a fearful truth, however. Shock waves are required to correct our course. Violent upheavals are a part of His rescue mission.

Who are the targets of God’s judgment? False pastors, politicians, celebrities, and cultural influencers. Why are they to be targeted? Because they are the ones responsible for calling down the destruction of our nation. They have shaken their fists at God and boasted that they are going to build an America that hates our Judeo-Christian roots.

Jehovah who has, in the past, winked at their debauchery, has now fixed a deadline for the end of their activities.

A forerunner to this judgment is Donald Trump. While he has been a blessing to the righteous, he has been a scourge to the God-haters. They cannot explain his effectiveness. They cannot understand why they cannot stop him. They are baffled that every attempt to destroy him has backfired.

The architects of a godless America will now see the same force that has kept President Trump from being destroyed, descending in judgment on their empires. Dismiss me if you will, but consider this: What if you see false preachers taken, even while they are speaking their pernicious doctrines? What if billionaires who are seemingly impervious to bankruptcy, are suddenly wiped out? What if nations that are the avowed enemy of America and Israel, suddenly implode economically or by convulsions in nature?

The pandemic and the mass rioting are but the initial birth pangs of this occasion.

Convulsions are indeed coming, but God wants you, the righteous core who are His beloved, to not only endure, but to thrive as a result of this event.

What should you do to be ready for November?

1. Don’t be deceived. As Jesus watched the Twelve admiring the buildings in Jerusalem, He told them that they would all be destroyed, until not one brick would be left on top of another.

So, they asked when this would happen. Matthew 24:3, “Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be?”” They wanted Jesus to give them a date, so they could be prepared. They were only thinking in the natural, and that is the wrong way to prepare.

The question they should have asked is, “How should I prepare?” Jesus’ answer is very telling. He said, “Take heed that no one deceives you” (Mt. 24:4).

The most important gift in this hour is discernment. Satan is bombarding the church with conflicting opinions that range from apathy to outright terror. Neither extreme is the truth! This downpour of opinions is designed by hell to destroy God’s people. 

The overuse of hyper-grace and prophetic “words” is by design. The omitting of the Bible and sound teaching is by design. They have come to deceive and render the people of God powerless, prior to the coming storm. Therefore, we must love truth—not foolishness!

2. Prepare, but do not panic. God knew this was coming. He is not surprised and He is never fooled. The child of God must remember that their greatest safety is in being right with God. Those who would make you panic, have not been sent from the Lord.

It is important to understand that if you have been seeking God all along, that is, if you are pressing in to know Him and please Him, you have been preparing, even without realizing it. Your safety is already in place.  Matthew 24:6, “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”

3. The righteous will be spared this November by a special intimacy with the Lord, a special clarity of His voice that will lead to special instructions and a special refuge from the coming judgment.

Isaiah 26:20-21, “Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, until the indignation is past. For behold, the Lord comes out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; the earth will also disclose her blood, and will no more cover her slain.”

This verse is so rich, that I will end this message by unpacking some of its treasure.

-Entering into your chambers is not just a room, a bomb shelter or the cabin in the mountains. It is a place in God—a place that makes you disaster-proof, as David wrote in Psalm 41:1, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

-Closing the door behind you means you shut out all of the toxins of this age. It means you slam the door on fear and confusion and every person or vile thing that tries to undermine your relationship with Jesus. When you hear that door slam, a genuine peace and power will clothe you.

-“Hide yourself” is both literal and figurative. God will instruct you on what to buy to be ready and what not to waste your money on. You will hide wisely. Proverbs 22:3, “A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.”

Indeed, God is coming out of His place to punish, but from the spiritual and physical fortress God will make with you, you will hear and maybe even see it, but judgment will pass over you. Just as in the judgment on Egypt, there was darkness where the Egyptians were, but it was light in Goshen where the people of God were living (see Exodus 10:22-23).

Always rest in this promise, “A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you behold, and see the reward of the wicked” (Psalm 91:7-8).

 

THE LEFT IS VICIOUSLY ATTACKING FRANKLIN GRAHAM AND TRYING TO MAKE IT LOOK CHRISTIAN

When you read the headline that “10,000 Christians” signed a petition to remove Franklin Graham from the ministry, what did you think? Did you get the impression that he had done some great evil—and many of his supporters want him out?

The fake news media squealed with delight as they spread this story. But the headline is very misleading. This vicious attack—sneaking in under a “Christian” banner—is just slander. How do I know this? Well, wait until you hear who organized the petition.

The group is called Faithful America. How do I put this lovingly? Faithful America has a very twisted view of what Jesus taught. For instance they believe that you—yeah, I am talking about you—are immoral for supporting President Trump. Think of them this way: They are to Christianity what the Flat Earth Society is to geography.

Though called ‘Faithful America’, this group is–in my opinion–neither faithful nor American.

Here’s what they say about themselves on their website: “We work together for immigrant and refugee rights, climate justice, and full LGBTQ inclusion, among other important social, economic, and racial justice causes that reflect the values Jesus taught.” Their reflection is coming from a broken mirror. Certainly not the Bible.

Now you know why the petition got a lot of signatures…it’s not just leftist-Christians, but anti-God, Trump haters jumping on the bandwagon.

Here is the crime they said Franklin Graham committed: “The final night of the 2020 Republican convention began with a partisan appearance from notoriously homophobic preacher Franklin Graham, who prayed, ‘“I thank you tonight for our President, Donald J. Trump…in the mighty name of your Son.”’

Franklin has been totally silent about this petition. I know why. He shouldn’t answer questions about this any more than he should answer questions about unicorns.

So then why am I commenting?

First, because we need to stand with Franklin Graham. He is a heroic figure in our nation and the world. He has endured a walk of faith few of us will ever understand. I can’t imagine stepping into his father’s shoes, as he has. He has handled it better than any human since Joshua replaced Moses.

Franklin Graham had the Biblical understanding, courage, and discernment to go against the grain of lukewarm and false Christianity, and to take a very unpopular but necessary stand. I thank God for Franklin because he has acquitted himself with grace, courage, and integrity. Franklin has done God, his dad, and all of us proud. And he continues to do it every day in many unsung ways.

His Samaritan’s Purse International Disaster Relief and World Medical Mission have touched the lives of tens of thousands, here and around the world. They bring food, medicine, doctors and nurses to disaster sites. Their Operation Christmas Child provides gifts for the needy. Operation Heal Our Patriots provides ministry and services to veterans. Issues such as clean water, hygiene, sanitation, nutrition, discipleship and many other outreaches can be seen at: https://www.samaritanspurse.org/

Check it out and support it!

Also, go to Franklin Graham’s Facebook page and sign up to receive his posts. They are timely and anointed: https://www.facebook.com/FranklinGraham/

I am going to ask you to share this blog because, maybe, in some small way, it could be a part of a groundswell of support and encouragement for this man who has been sent forth from God. Your comments are also appreciated.
