Fake News in the Pulpit

By Mario Murillo

Recently, a man of God came to me in the same way Nicodemus came to Jesus one night.  I am not Jesus, and the subject matter in this case was not about being born again.  The similarity had to do with the fact that this man of God wanted to discuss something with me in private.

He said, “Mario, there are many of us who know that you are right about what the left, the media, and democrats are doing to the nation and the church.  But we know that speaking out will cost us tithing members and our non-profit status.”

“How do you feel about your silence?” I asked.  “I feel sick,” he said.  “How sick?” I replied.  He did not answer, but the pain in his eyes showed the depth of his turmoil. This is a good man who sincerely wants to do what is right.

These are the kind of people I am appealing to in this blog, sincere preachers, who honestly do not know how to preach a true and urgent message. By no means am I going to waste time attacking any pastor who has sold out to this culture.  That would be an entirely different blog.

So, I said, “You have no choice, you must speak out.” Then I proceeded to make my points.  I began by getting his attention.  “If what you say to your people every Sunday denies the crisis—provides no positive or practical instruction on how to combat it—then you are preaching fake news.”  

A man or woman of honor will never withhold truth because of personal consequences. Honor has become cheap. Honor is not accommodating the misconceptions of others, nor is it engaging in flattery.  It means courage and loyalty to the truth, no matter what the personal cost.

Preaching must proceed from the things that are important to God, and must not be based on what may or may not offend your audience. There are issues that are urgent to the Lord. He must see that you are willing to discern what is important enough to present to your people. How can you expect God to speak to you if He already knows you are going to run His Word through the unscriptural filter of ‘political correctness?’

By your silence you are taking other people down with you. Does it ever dawn on a preacher that he is actually damaging his audience when he only says what they want to hear? He is not leading them forward. He is not improving their condition or alerting them to danger.

The decision to do this often comes about when the preacher has given in to fear and no longer believes God can change society.  So, the best he can do is mouth soothing words.

David faced the temptation to blurt out his defeatism. Then he realized that the next generation is listening.  In Psalm 73:15 David wrote, “If I were to say, this is how I will speak, behold, I would deceive a generation of Your sons, (O Lord).

This is the biggest reason to speak outbecause there is still time to save the country. The ongoing destruction of freedom of speech, and of religion, has happened because God-haters have marketed a great lie to the masses. Their lie is wearing thin, and, as we have recently seen, their attempts to destroy our freedoms are slowing down very little. So, now is the time to hold their feet to the fire.  We have not yet been driven underground.  We are not yet being forced to secretly signal to one another that we are Christians by drawing fish symbols in the dirt or huddling in the catacombs, as the early church had to do.

Sorry if you don’t think so, but Trump is a merciful reprieve. He is flawed, as all human beings are, but he is one of the only things that stand between us and the Socialist Left who are trying to destroy our freedoms and many issues that matter to you and me…especially the Supreme Court!

 

How can we dare to ignore this opportunity to speak out?

The pulpit is responsible for more of what is wrong with our culture than we want to admit. Charles Finney said that the pulpit was first and foremost to blame for the failure of the church to impact the culture! There should have been a verbal firewall and there wasn’t.  We should have made the case for marriage and the unborn with greater force.  We didn’t.

Finally:  What makes our silence even more embarrassing is that many preachers refuse to preach the truth that their people long to hear. Many are misreading their congregation. Audiences are ready to listen to common sense preaching.  We must seize the moment. 

Jesus said in John 9:4, “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.”

You should never speak out on certain controversial issues unless the Spirit of God compels you to. But you are asking too much when you say that God has not moved your heart to speak out about our government’s overreach and its persecution of Christians.

6 “If a watchman sees a sword coming (against a nation) and does not (sound the warning), and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes a soul from them, he is taken in his iniquity. But I will require the blood (of that man) from the hand of the watchman. 7And you, son of man, I have set you as a watchman to the house of Israel. And you shall hear the word from My mouth and warn them from Me. 8 When I say to the wicked, O wicked one, surely you shall die. And you do not speak to warn the wicked one from his ways, that wicked one shall die in his iniquity, but I will require his blood from your hand. 9 But you, if you warn the wicked from his way, to turn from it, and he does not turn from his way, he shall die in his own iniquity, but you have delivered your soul.”   −Ezek. 33:6-9

Oh, by the way, the IRS is not going to take away your tax exempt status. Trump overruled the hideous Johnson amendment. So do not hold back. SPEAK OUT!

IS THERE A WORD?

Facebook oozes with the voices of those claiming to be “prophets” or “mouthpieces for God.”   The internet teems with self-appointed prophets who scream to be heard, bombarding us with “prophetic words.”  Almost all of these “prophecies” can be categorized into one of two headlines:

AMERICA IS PAST HOPE AND WILL BE DESTROYED!

AMERICA IS FAVORED AND WILL NEVER BE DESTROYED!

So, are either of these the word of the Lord for this hour?  This is what I hear the Lord saying.

Hear the word of the Lord!

To autonomously pronounce judgment, is to play God.  Doomsday “prophets” are calling off the attack against evil, when God is not.  They are sounding a false retreat.  They are making evangelism futile.  They are helping put souls in hell by discouraging soul-winners.

I would say this to those “prophets”: Don’t lie to yourself.  Don’t make up “prophecies” of judgment just because you are mad at the church.  Face it!  Your righteous indignation may be nothing more than a personal grudge you hold because your ministry was rejected by the church.

However, the great danger is not an abundance of prophets of doom.  It is the false prophets of cheap grace and entitlement, who are the most dangerous.

In a wonderful book entitled The American Miracle written by Michael Medved, we read about astounding and undeniable instances of God stepping in when America seemed beyond hope.  However, these examples are not proof that judgment won’t come.  To assume this is sheer madness.

I want to use George Washington as an example of something that desperately needs to be said to the American church.  Washington died at the age of 67 because of medical malpractice.  Back then, doctors believed in bleeding as a way to remove the “bad blood” from sick patients.  Washington was already weak from his illness, and by draining five pints of blood from him, the doctors made him too weak to fight the infection, and it finally killed him.  Today we know it was the worst thing they could have done.

Listen church!  Cheap grace is bleeding an already weakened church.   It helps set us up for national destruction.   For Satan, this is the perfect theology.   Instead of a life-giving conviction and a robust will to proclaim the Gospel, make disciples of all the nations, and fight against those who would destroy America—this perversion induces drowsiness and apathy.

Because they have adopted this doctrine of devils, many American pastors are closet alcoholics and addicted to porn.  And can you expect a poisoned vessel to preach a pure message on Sunday morning?

Past miracles don’t guarantee future mercy.  They should awaken urgency, an overpowering gratitude, humility, and profound soul-searching.  Throwing ourselves off the cliff of morality to prove the power of Grace, both tempts God, and provokes wrath.

God is trying to show us the times we are living in and what to do about it.

In 1 Chronicles 12:32, we read “of the sons of Issachar who understood the times, to know what Israel ought to do.”  The entire chapter lists the military talent of each tribe of Israel.  This gift: “to know what Israel ought to do,” was Issachar’s weapon.

These “prophets” who say America will be destroyed, or who say America cannot be destroyed, are dead wrong.  We are neither pardoned nor condemned.  Our fate has not yet been decided.

We are living in a moment of mercy: HOW SOON WE FORGET!  We were spared the horror of a Hillary presidency which would have been the finishing touch on Obama’s death spiral for America: a permanently enslaving national debt, a Supreme Court that would have chained us to anti-God laws, freedom-killing environmentalism, and open borders. All of these would have ushered in permanent control by the Democrat-Socialist Party, crime, and terrorism.

Trump’s election was a miracle that was intended by God to ignite the church.  But, his time in Washington will be short and ineffective, and in the end, we will be worse off than ever−if the church fails to obey God.

Trump has had missteps as president, but this does not by any means disqualify him from being the right choice.  We dare not abandon him so soon!  He needs our prayers.  He needs our support. As I wrote before, at least with Trump, we have a firewall to let us preach the Gospel and hold on for another miracle.

Here are the precise verses for this hour:

“And now for a little while grace has been shown from the Lord our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a peg in His holy place, that our God may enlighten our eyes and give us a measure of revival in our bondage.  For we were slaves. Yet our God did not forsake us in our bondage; but He extended mercy to us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to revive us, to repair the house of our God, to rebuild its ruins, and to give us a wall in Judah and Jerusalem.” Ezra 9:8-9

If, after all the mercy God showed us in the miraculous election of 2016, we fail to repent, fail to rise, and to take our rightful place in America’s future, then, yes, we can indeed be destroyed.

Listen again to Ezra:

“And after all that has come upon us for our evil deeds and for our great guilt, since You our God have punished us less than our iniquities deserve, and have given us such deliverance as this, should we again break Your commandments, and join in marriage with the people committing these abominations? Would You not be angry with us until You had consumed us, so that there would be no remnant or survivor?” Ezra 9:13-14

Wrath comes when you do not properly respond to mercy:

“But Hezekiah made no return for the benefit he received, for his heart was proud; therefore, wrath came on him and on Judah and Jerusalem.” 2 Chronicles 32:25  (NASB)

Look again at Ezra’s words: “but He extended mercy to us in the sight of the kings of Persia, to revive us, to repair the house of our God, to rebuild its ruins, and to give us a wall in Judah and Jerusalem.”

 

Trump is a temporary reprieve.  Now is the time when we must do our part.  We must act on the mercy we have been shown.  God has extended mercy so that we would do three things:

Revive, Repair and Rebuild. 

Revive: God commands us to seek a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit.  We dare not have church without it!  We dare not utter another word in the pulpit that denies it!  The word of the Lord for this hour is: Cry out to God with a heart of gratitude for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit!

Here is the key promise if we do: 6 “Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man. 7 And let it be, when these signs come to you, that you do as the occasion demands; for God is with you.” 1 Samuel 10:6-7

Repair:  Both the pulpit and our moral compasses are broken.  They must be repaired!  Our wiring, our plumbing, and our foundations are damaged.  Abortion and marriage are issues we lost because our leadership was broken.  We abandoned the Bible and did not arm ourselves or our congregations with convictions.

America needs Lions of God who will roar from a righteous heart.  Away with secret sin and lukewarm grace!  Prayer will bring about the needed repair.  The voice that shakes hell and frees men and women from bondage is forged only in fervent prayer.  Satan does not respect your stage presence, your education, or your worldly tactics.  He recognizes a prayerless poser.  He only retreats before men and women who have been to Gethsemane.

Rebuild: We must come home to the Glorious Gospel.  We must dismantle all the silly things we have tried to say to this generation.  Forget about “rebranding”!  We need to rebuild our sermons from the ground up.  Let them be replete with Bible Verses.  Let them speak of the power of our mighty God.  Fill them with content the Holy Spirit can use to win lost souls!  Lift up the name of Jesus. The Good News must once again roll off our tongue in the office, on campus, and at the mall.

The consequences of cheapening God’s mercy are too terrible to imagine.

The opportunity this miracle has opened for us is too wonderful to ignore.

That is the word of the Lord for this hour!

YOU—NOT TRUMP—ARE THE REAL TARGET.

 

If any part of your ministry is based on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or YouTube, you are already in trouble.  It was not until now that the real attack on Christianity in America was revealed. I know that the church is about to be given an ultimatum to either change our beliefs or cease to operate in America;

People love to call me an alarmist. But I know what I am talking about. The radical Left has declared a very unusual kind of war on us—a war that Christian leaders will not admit is happening−and who remain totally unprepared to fight.

The Trump victory inflamed the Left so much that two years later they are still totally rejecting the election and denying the rule of law.  Here are facts you must face:

Fake news: NBC poured 400 million dollars into Buzz Feed.  Buzz Feed released a tsunami of fake news that portrayed Trump as a pervert in Russia.  Only Trump was never there and we now know the entire incident was made up to destroy his reputation. Buzz Feed is only one of thousands of outlets that live to target you. The chilling part is that NBC, a gigantic and enormously powerful corporation was willing to undermine America.

The California revolution: Behaving as if America had been taken over in a coup, California has declared itself a separate state for the resistance.  California Congresswoman Maxine Waters is once again moving for impeachment.   She began this impeachment crusade even before Trump took office! Again, Trump is not the real target.  California is a rogue state bent on changing your way of life.

What you must understand—the thing you must get—is, they are not just going after Trump—they are going after you.  I am talking about 80% of all Evangelicals and 63 million voters…especially young people who voted for Trump.   Young conservative Christians are in the cross hairs on campus for a reason. The media will now begin to attack Trump supporters as never before.

Get this! They are not just calling Trump a racist—they are calling you a racist.  They are not saying Trump hates Gays, Mexicans, and Muslim immigrants—they are saying you do.

According to them, supporting Trump makes you a xenophobic, despicable racist and hater, who must have your rights revoked. They are trying to figure out a way to deny you employment and to deny your children an education.

Their election night 4-alarm Leftist hissy fit is only the opening act.  Expect strikes, violent demonstrations, and a towering litany of acts of “civil disobedience.” As bad as it is now, just wait until the next election begins in earnest. You will witness vileness and venom you never thought possible in America.

Here is what I said on January 18th, 2017:  “Obama is not going away—He will lead the charge.  His true mission to undermine America will kick in now that he is no longer restrained by the presidency.  He will lead a confederation of movie stars, politicians, billionaires, Muslim leaders and minions in the United Nations. Trump legislation will be throttled at every turn.  The media will launch a withering nonstop assault on every word he says.” 

Not only did all of that happen, it is only now we are learning of the blind loyalty to Obama in the deep state and the crimes his toadies in the FBI were willing to perform at his behest. The Democrat Party is feverishly reconstructing America into a land that is hostile toward conservatives and Christians. With Obama’s input they are imagining a post-Christian era. A nation without guns, without the protections of the Constitution, and a nation controlled by a single party−which will be openly Marxist, totalitarian, and atheist.

As I said, they are not going after Trump they are going after you and me.  If this is true, how then should we prepare?  Here are my heartfelt convictions of what we must do NOW. 

1. Don’t let them bully you, learn from history.  It is 1776 all over again.  An oppressive regime has illegitimately claimed power over us.  British rule then is very much like Leftist rulers now.  Loyalists joined British forces in oppressing the colonists, and told them that their elected officials were not valid.  Now they are telling us that Republicans are not valid.

The Leftist elites are not British monarchs or red coats, but they are telling us what we can, and cannot, believe.  They are seizing our rights.  They are seeking to void the Constitution. T.V. Networks and billion dollar companies are working to overrule not just a free and fair election, but to overrule anyone living a God fearing life.

 

The challenge of the church today is the same as it was in 1776.  Revolutionary war Christians understood that they could not sit on the sidelines, as their rights were being destroyed.   Their call was to stand for freedom.

2. We must fight with the weapons of God! Thank God, we are not waging physical war, but we are fighting a spiritual war. To fight, we must pray and speak the Word of God.  We cannot afford to listen to those who say we should not speak out against Islam, immorality, or far Left totalitarianism.

Some ask “won’t this make us look unloving and turn lost souls off to the Gospel?”  On the contrary, when we speak out with the power of the Holy Spirit it will shatter the strong delusion that is pervading our society. The demonic spell that they are under will be broken.

The early colonists knew they were building a nation that would be a lighthouse of the Gospel to the world.  Do we realize what they did? Do you see how the iron curtain that these celebrities and media tyrants are ringing down on us will silence the Gospel, and leave Israel at the mercy of all her enemies?

3. Build on prophecy: If you believe that Trump is a miracle that is a type of King Cyrus, then act like it! Seize this divine opportunity to stand with policies that best reflect our values.  Don’t chicken out now that the heat is on. I can’t believe how many Evangelical leaders have their head in the sand! Just because this evil seems fantastic and unacceptable to your sensibilities, does not make it any less real.

With the very same breath that we call Satan a liar…we must call falsehood out!  Preachers all over America must ring the bell of liberty in their pulpits, and call out the intellectual frauds who are destroying our freedom.

They are not harmless actors and singers, they are agents of a Satan inspired tyranny that are not coming after Trump, they are coming after you. But remember, if God be for you who can be against you?

Let’s shed the artificial niceness. It is nothing more than cowardice. There is too much at stake to be fretting over “how we are perceived.”  We must understand that we have lost elections for all the wrong reasons. Too long we have been the Silent Majority! It is because we didn’t unify…it is because too many preachers have hoodwinked us into apathetic acceptance of this takeover.

The awakened believer must link with other awakened believers. They must dump the religious culture of compromise and huddle with those willing to pay the price to let God use them to transform America back to ‘One Nation Under God.’ There are millions of us!

Oh, how the enemy has lied to the American church. If we find our voice—if we don’t break ranks—this Leftist lie will die an early death. Come on, child of God, what are you waiting for?  Don’t say this isn’t your battle! How is that even possible−when you are the real target?

 

Is George Soros funding division?

A video from the American Association of Evangelicals says this about George Soros: “through his many funding ventures, has been busily infiltrating the Christian base in America to divide, and ultimately conquer, the religious minded within the Republican Party.”

In the AAE press release they name Reverend Jim Wallis who was touring the states to get Christians to vote against Republicans.  “Rev. Jim Wallis and allies are now touring many states on ‘Vote Common Good’ buses to … split the evangelical vote before the mid-term elections.”  And in many ways they were successful.

The video shows a voice recording of Jim Wallis the leader of Sojourners ministry denying he got funds from George Soros.  Cheryl Chumley of the Washington Times said this:  “But guess what?  His denial’s proven a bit — umm, wrong.”

Soros-tied Open Society money and grant dollars have not only flowed by the hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Sojourners, AAE reported. But Soros-tied Open Society money and grant dollars have been flowing to the Sojourners for some time.”

Jim Wallis pictured with Clinton and Obama.

“Soros Funding of Sojourners Is Only the Tip of the Iceberg,” wrote National Review in August of 2010.  Not only that but this has been going on for years.  The Blaze reported this back in October 2011: ““George Soros Sends $150000 to Jim Wallis‘ Left-Wing Group Sojourners.”

The Sojourners has wholly given themselves over to the left but continues to masquerade as Evangelical Christians doing the work of Christ.

Their website says things like, “We are evangelicals, Catholics, Pentecostals and Protestants; progressives and conservatives; blacks, whites, Latinos, and Asians; women and men; young and old … [and] seek to discover the intersection of faith, politics, and culture,”

Their magazine says things like “No Wall Between Amigos.” And this: “Conservative Court-Packing Isn’t About Abortion — It’s About Culture: If the Right really cares about abortion, they should reduce poverty.” And this: “In the Midst of a Political Emergency: The administration is threatening the soul of this nation.”

They oppose Trump at every turn.  They espouse big government socialism.  Remember,  they were touring 31 states for the single purpose of getting Christians to vote for Democrats.

There’s nothing pro-Donald Trump, pro-conservative, pro-limited government, pro-Constitution about this group’s goals — or, for that matter, about the Vote Common Good bus tour.

The front organization for this tour is called Vote Common Good.  It’s leader Doug Pagitt said this: ““we believe the Trump administration needs to be restrained” and that he simply wants Americans to “consider the common good when they vote.”

Cheryl Chumley says “What’s going on here is not so much Christianity as it is partisan politicking under cover of religious teaching. It’s the furtherance of a George Soros style of progressivism, but cloaked in Christianity — and backed by George Soros bucks — and made all the worse by the initial denials of the George Soros ties.

Anyone can toss down a Christian card, even an atheist. But a clue to identify an anti-American enemy is the wolves always want Big Government, bigger government, a more powerful centralized system with weakened rights for the individual — and if it’s secret Soros dollars and Bible-thumping that gets them there, so be it.”

Be on guard!  Don’t be fooled and don’t forget that we are approaching the election of the ages.  This will be the single most important election in our lifetime.

The left needs a false narrative. It’s like crack to them.

The media and the elite lords of the left will not abandon their addicted minions. No sooner did the drug they took daily—Russian collusion and obstruction of justice—get exposed than the powers that be gave them back another lie: Jussie really was attacked by Trump supporters. They did pour bleach on him. They did put a noose around his neck. What a hoax.

This is a man who almost started a race war because he was despondent about his failing career. He did it for attention. He did it without regard for who he might hurt. But he is not off the hook.  I fear for him and pray that he didn’t get off the hook because of Psalm 92:7 “When the wicked spring up like grass, And when all the workers of iniquity flourish, It is that they may be destroyed forever.”

When the non-playable characters on the left chant those lies it restores the narcotic rush they had during the Mueller investigation. Somewhere in a smoky room they huddled—the Lords of the left. They decided immediate action was needed. Maybe they bought DA Kimberley Foxx in Chicago. That’s why…even in a town as corrupt as Chicago, people are outraged that charges against Smollett have been dropped.

But they said something like this: “We can’t nurse the opiate of Russian collusion but we can turn our wrath to Trump supporters. We can mainline the fairy tale that Jussie was attacked.  We can get them to believe that in Chi town, of all places, there are white men roaming in MAGA hats saying “this is Trump country!”  We can bring out the white powder–the white supremacy powder. Yeah, that’s it!”

Anyone who questions them is once again racist. Anyone who asks “what about the incontrovertible facts? What about receipts, money exchanged the confession of his friends that he hired them? What about the police who saw right through then entire charade?”  How dare you question Jussie you racist! What a rush for them to be able to say that again. Leave the Russia card, to re-drop the race card.

As far as false narratives go Jussie’s is embarrassing. It is madness to believe him. It is not just a stretch…it is an intellectual hamstring pull. No matter, the left must continue to feed the addicts.

Will Rachel Maddow apologize for lying for 2 years about Russia? Will CNN cop to their blatant and cynical ploy to get ratings by pumping out stories they knew were lies? Of course not. They will just move on to the next false narrative. Its their crack.

From the false rape accusations of the Duke lacrosse team on to “hands up don’t shoot,” to a 16 year old Nick Sandmann who was falsely accused and shamed and threatened, to the Russia, Russia hoax and now back to Jussie.

They couldn’t get Trump so now they will go after Trump’s supporters, deplorables, smelly Walmart customers, racists, Islamophobic bigots. It’s all lies and they know it. The left has to have a false narrative—it’s an addiction—they’ve just got to have it.

How else will SNL find skits? How else will ratings bounce back at MSNBC and CNN? How will Pelosi, Schumer and the young Turks like AOC continue to make sense without a stimulant that dulls logic?

The only problem is that the high is harder to achieve because each false narrative is stupider than the last. Drug dealers do something like this to junkies. Once they know their victim is hopelessly addicted they cut the drug with stuff like baking powder. The drug is less potent and the price goes up.

Each false narrative is wilder than the last one. Less substance, less facts, less rationale until finally it is so fantastic that the price is too high. The naivete required is just too extreme.  So extreme that even Rachel might blush when she reports it. Nah.

When the facts about Jussie come out—as they most certainly will—the left will ignore it. They will simply move on to the next lie. Oh right! Trump’s tax forms.  The thing is, when your less gullible, err, less addicted following sees you caught in another epic hoax, and you just move on to the next, you will drive them into rehab.

These false narratives feed the big false narrative. America is evil. America is racist. America needs socialism. Poor leftists, America is just not evil enough or racist enough for their agenda, so they have to invent it to keep their cause alive. How sick is that?

Abraham Lincoln said, “You can fool some of the people all the time and, all of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”  Beware Leftists, the size of the group you can fool all of the time is shrinking fast.

 

What God will now do with Donald Trump

The witch hunt has been destroyed. The lies of CNN, MSNBC, and the cohorts of the now fully discredited left-wing media are cascading down on them.

It all began when they did everything, they could to get Clinton elected. But, when Donald Trump won, they were consumed by hate. They turned to removing Trump from office.

Remember this about Hillary Clinton. She colluded with Russians. She obstructed justice.  The deep state embedded in many aspects of government—notably the intelligence community and the Justice Department—deliberately covered up her crimes. But they did not stop there.

In a breathtaking irony, they decided to pin her crimes on Donald Trump. Now it has all blown up in their face. I said it would. Two years ago, I said this, “Trump will not be impeached.  He will not even be censured. You don’t need to worry about Donald Trump.”

But is this cause for celebration? Quite the opposite. You need to see the shameful and criminal abuse of power by all of these people. This is a very dark day for America if we do not bring to justice all who broke the law including Hillary Clinton.

For two years CNN and MSNBC fed the lie…not merely from hatred of Trump but to save their failing networks. It was all a lie. Not one thing they said about Trump was true.

533,074 articles about Russian collusion were written. Networks gave whopping 2,284 minutes to the investigation. $25 million was spend and all the while they knew there was no evidence of any wrongdoing.

What you have witnessed is the darkest abuse of power America has ever seen. People in great positions of power colluded in a way that makes Watergate look like jaywalking. There needs to be a national outrage not seen since the Boston Tea Party.

The Republican Senate needs to declare war on this desecration of justice, due process and the rule of law. Average Americans need to wake up to the great evil that has been done to them. For 2 years, Democrats have cared zero about jobs, national security, education or our crumbling infrastructure—as they chased a fantasy fueled by hate. But why has all of this come to light?

Heaven is involved in this. When widespread evil is exposed you know God is back of it. This was the answer to prayer for many intercessors.

Not once did I flinch in the face of this attack on Trump. I knew what God would do. And now I am going to tell you what God will now do with Donald Trump.

To understand what God will do with Trump now you must first recognize two miracles that brought us here:

-The first miracle was a grace on Trump and his family. No family and no man could have endured the vile tsunami of lies, insults, and threats unless they were supernaturally sustained.

-The second is that this witch hunt was destroyed. Look at who was against him: 400 newspapers. All the late-night talk show hosts. Every major network but Fox. The Moles in the FBI and CIA, the Democrat party and on and on it goes. How did they not get what they wanted? Why couldn’t the greatest cadre of power in history bring down one man?

Psalm 41:11 explains it: “By this I know that You are well pleased with me, because my enemy does not triumph over me.” The Mueller investigation was the great hope of the left. It is why they spent 2 years pouring every last drop of they currency on it.

America came closer to losing freedom and morality than you can know. We were on the very brink of losing our Constitution and watching the church driven underground. A spell has been broken.

Now Americans will ask if the Russia Collusion thing was a hoax what else is a hoax? Then the drowsy acceptance of foolishness is going away. Antifa protesters will look stupider. Insane pronouncements by wacky politicians will now sound insane. Double standards will die.

In the next few months Donald Trump will behave like a general uncovering more corruption and turning the people of America away from the lies that have poisoned our institutions and campuses. You will see free speech return. It will once again be safe for opposing views to be shared. Furthermore…

Donald Trump has been steadily making it better for me and others to win lost souls. Since he signed the executive order enforcing free speech on campus it opens the door for us to win students like never before.

Now Trump will bulldoze the other lies and abuses of power that surround us. But what does that mean to you? It means that the church must seize this miracle. How will we explain it to God if we sit on the sidelines when doors are flying open?

It is silly to worry about what people will think if we stand with Trump. The spirit on the left will hate you and God with or without Trump. At least with Trump we have a firewall to let us preach the Gospel and hold on for another miracle.

We can’t be passive! We can’t fear supporting the president because things have gotten so heated. We also can’t sit back and abuse the miracle we have received.

The American church must build on the opportunity that Trump is now giving us. We must wake up to our task!  Our disunity is killing our cause. We must shake off the disastrous apathy and complacency that is dulling us to our duty.

There is great hope because we have gotten a miracle. Miracles have power beyond what we understand. God let this blog get in your hands so that you would pray and obey. Don’t worry about others…just do the right thing. God will take care of the rest.

 

Stolen

They are saying what we should be saying.  Millions have seen their videos.  They are credited for starting a revolution of thought in North America.  Here’s the rub: they are stealing our thunder.  They are putting preachers to shame.  They are Jordan Peterson and Ben Shapiro. 

You may be the last human in America who hasn’t seen their confrontations and then eliminations of post-modern secularists.  They tackle every hot button issue from transgender, abortion, gun rights, feminism…in short, everything your pastor may be afraid to preach on.

Here’s the thing—they do it with an aplomb that devastates their opponents.  They produce clear facts and irresistible common sense to show how ancient morality is key to sanity.  In other words, they are doing our job.

There is one audience that is especially resonates with Jordan Petersen: young men.  This is a key demographic that the church has almost lost entirely. 

Ben Shapiro destroys the case for abortion in take-no-prisoners style on the most liberal college campuses.

Jordan Petersen champions free speech in a way that you are not hearing in any pulpit today.

What they are, is what preaching used to be in America.  What they have done, is destroy our great excuse: the lie that young audiences do not want to hear classic morality. And they have destroyed the sister lie that if you take on the false arguments of the left you will be shot down in flames.

The fact that they don’t preach the Gospel or refer to that many Bible verses only increases our embarrassment.  That’s because, they are still closer to the counsel of God than most celebrity pastors.

While most mega church pastors seek the non-offensive sermon, these two wade into the fallacies of sin and atheism.  They prove that there is a vast young audience for moral absolutes.

They prove what I have long declared: it is time for sermons with content.  Paul said he did not come with the excellency of man’s wisdom but the demonstration of the power of God.  That does not mean he was not compelling.  We are not compelling because we are so afraid of telling people where they are wrong.

There was a day when Ben Shapiro would not have been such a novelty.  We used to have preachers who were anointed with content that exposed the bankruptcy of secular culture.

Billy Graham was such a preacher.  He stood unapologetically before lost souls, of all races, and educational levels, and declared the Word of God.  He left nothing out. 

The notion that he was a simple preacher is misleading.  He once said, “the new morality is nothing but the old immorality.” A simple yet profound observation that is more at home in a meeting with Jordan and Ben than our present churches.

Billy  seized headlines, current events and never shied away from explaining why sin destroyed and Jesus offered peace that passes understanding. 

Today the church is talking to itself because it does not know how to talk to modern minds.  We do not change hearts and minds.  We are not adding daily to the church such as should be saved. 

You know I believe in miracles.  However, those who continually offer the world emotional experiences are missing the great power of preaching like Jesus promised, “I will give you a mouth and wisdom that your adversaries will not be able to gainsay or resist.”

On the other hand, those who leave out the power of the gifts of the Spirit—that are a sign to the unbeliever—are equally crippling the Church’s power to transform lost souls.

This dynamic duo of gifts of power with piercing preaching was embodied by Paul the Apostle.  Until Paul, the church was led by Peter.  Peter had fire but not the trained mind of Paul the Apostle. 

When Paul told the initiative his dual gifting of heat and light caused the Gospel to spread to all the known world.  It can be that way again.

It is not enough to tell harmless stories to the already converted.  We need to penetrate those who never darken the door of a church.  It is not enough to dazzle them with logic as Jordan and Ben do.  They need both a convicting declaration and the confirming signs of the Holy Spirit.

Jordan and Ben have done the heavy lifting.  They proved our shallow sermons are unjustified.

Maybe we needed to be shamed into action by two men who have proven that millions—many who we thought wanted nothing to do with Christ—are hungry for truth.
