THE STUPIDEST IDEA

In the history of stupid decisions, this may be the all time stupidest decision yet. Moving to impeach Trump is so stupid that it has all the earmarks of an act of God. It feels like God has turned them over to a madness that has them careening toward self-destruction. It demonstrates both, that they are desperate to appear relevant, and that they realize they are losing. It has to be the hand of God if Democrats are all on board to do the last thing they should ever be trying to do.

Here’s why:

1. This attempt by the enemies of America to impeach President Trump will never succeed. The Constitution requires a two-thirds super majority to convict a person being impeached. This project is dead on arrival. Nancy Pelosi in caving to the socialist wing of her party will confirm the worst fear of all fair-minded Americans: Democrats do stupid things because their hatred of Trump matters more to them than the American people they are supposed to be representing. They are not working on the problems Americans face every day, and the voters are not interested in the socialism and junk-science environmentalism they are selling.

Democrats have apparently learned nothing from the Mueller investigation. 2 years and $25 million dollars produced absolutely nothing: zero, zip, and nada. There was no Russian collusion.  And now the public knows that the Democrats knew all along there was no collusion, and that they spent a ton of taxpayer money to ride that lie into the ground. Now they are at it again, and I promise you, the public will punish them for this.

2. House Representatives and Senators who vote for impeachment will risk their own reelections. Every Democrat Congressman in a battleground state, and any Republican Congressman in any state, will risk failing to be reelected if they vote to impeach, because their votes will be a matter of public record.

3. It will backfire like the Mueller investigation and force Democrats to face a real scandal: Joe Biden. In a video of his 2018 comments at a panelfor the Council on Foreign Relations, Joe Biden seemingly admitted to withholding military aid to Ukraine as a pressure tactic to force the firing of a prosecutor he did not like. Biden’s comments may see new scrutiny amid whistleblower allegations that Trump improperly called on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Biden.

Notice how quiet Joe is about impeachment. Notice the squeamish, guilty smile. He is going to wish that the Democrats had left this one alone.

The previous stupidity of the Mueller investigation has created more new investigations into the totally corrupt and partisan way that Trump was investigated. Andrew McCabe will tell you that false investigations backfire as he and James Comey now face investigations for their role in using the intelligence community to smear Trump.

Here’s what McCabe  said about impeachment and the Ukraine Call: “There’s Concern If It Doesn’t Live Up To The Hype People Will Be Disappointed”

4. None of this is affecting Trump’s approval rating. Today, with the threat of impeachment factored in, Rasmussen has Trump at 51% approval rating. That’s much higher than Obama at this point in his presidency. The vile and vicious attacks have hardened the support of Republicans for Trump, while giving moderate Democrats ‘Trump Scandal Fatigue.’

Given all this, we must ask, “Why would they do it? Why start down the same stupid road with even stupider reasons?” The answer: It must be God.

We now know the only reason Democrats want to impeach Donald Trump: blind hatred. But the only thing He is guilty of is being elected President and upsetting all their plans.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These 5 Things

Things are going to get even crazier. Yes, there is little doubt that we are going to see a scorched earth political campaign from the Left.  They will be carpet bombing the nation with propaganda.  The flood of fake news, character assassination, and criminal activity during the election season will be worse than anything you have ever seen before.  At a certain point, it may look impossible for our side to win.  However, I know we can—because I know God wants to do a miracle.

I have sought the Lord.  I have spent much time praying, studying, thinking, and writing.  Last night it hit me.  There are 5 things we can do, and if we do them I know Trump will be reelected. Here they are:

1. Realize that there are more of us than you know. There are millions who love Jesus and who also love America and who support our President.  It is not necessary for you to engage in endless debates or try to change anyone’s mind—all you have to do is to get those who are already like-minded to become active.

Activate them by telling them what is at stake.  They must know that the Democrat agenda for America is the Spirit of Antichrist, pure and simple. It is the instrument by which virtue, freedom, and justice will be removed and our cities turned into institutional hell holes.

Ask if they are registered to vote.  Ask what they plan to do, and make sure they vote.  Talk to them about studying a sample ballot so that they will be prepared to vote correctly.  Talk to them about early voting.  Make sure they know where to vote.

2. Talk to your pastor. Make sure you don’t threaten to leave the church if you don’t get your way! Just gently ask if he or she would consider instructing the Body on what is at stake.  One fact should outweigh everything else:  THE DEMOCRAT PARTY HAS DECLARED WAR ON CHRISTIANITY.  You are not lying or exaggerating when you tell that to your church leader.

Spiritual leaders need to know they are not ‘getting political’ by being vocal about the election.   It’s the Democrats who have gotten anti-God.  It is a natural extension of a preacher’s calling to destroy the works of Satan which, in this case, is the Left’s plan to drive the church underground.

3. Educate yourself on the issues and take public stands. No, I don’t want you glued to cable news, but you should be able to defend the reasons why you are pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, and why you support the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Yes, you can win debates and change minds.  When your child comes home from school a victim of leftist encroachment, you should know your parental rights.  I have found that many of the ideas of the Left are easily defeated by the Truth. Young minds often believe the silliness liberal teachers are spouting because they have never heard an opposing view.

Write letters to editors.  Call in to radio shows.  You’ll be amazed at how much noise you can make, and how many minds you can change.

4.Know that by taking stands against delusional leftists you are not being unloving.  Paul knew when to stand up for his civil rights: Acts 16:36: “So the keeper of the prison reported these words to Paul, saying, “The magistrates have sent to let you go. Now therefore depart, and go in peace.” 37 But Paul said to them, “They have beaten us openly, uncondemned Romans, and have thrown us into prison. And now do they put us out secretly? No indeed! Let them come themselves and get us out.” 38 And the officers told these words to the magistrates, and they were afraid when they heard that they were Romans.”

Paul knew his rights, and he wasn’t concerned that he might appear to be unloving.  He forced a political change in that city.

5.Understand warfare intercession. Prayer can’t be polite in this election cycle. It must be intense.  It must be targeted.  It must be deliberate and very specific. It must discern what is happening.  Arthur Matthews wrote, “Principalities and powers in heavenly places have mustered their unseen array, rigged their Trojan horse, infiltrated society and opened the gates for a flood of evil to take over.”

Once they have been alerted to that inescapable fact, the soldiers of Jesus must set themselves to unleash heaven upon the powers of evil.  Tragically, most believers are ignorant of the invisible battle.  Edith Schaeffer said that “there is a deadness, a blindness, an insensitivity among many Christians, for they refuse to recognize the war in which they are involved.”

The good news is that Jehovah only needs a handful of true intercessors to thwart Satan’s plans in this coming election.  However, it is imperative for you to understand your duty and your authority.  Again, Arthur Matthews wrote, “Barriers are not moved by God’s omnipotence until the believer takes the initiative and stands his ground in the heavenly places to engage the powers of evil that are directly the cause of the ground-level troubles, and resists them in the name of the Victor of Calvary.”

When the enemy came to steal Israel’s water, Moses took action to cut off demonic power at the source:  Exodus 17:8: “Now Amalek came and fought with Israel in Rephidim. 9 And Moses said to Joshua, “Choose us some men and go out, fight with Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in my hand.””

So long as Moses held up the rod over the battle, the Amalekites were defeated.  You know the rest, Aaron and Hur held up his hands until victory came.

Hold up the standard of God in prayer.  Hold it over the demons that are driving the Left to their insane extremes.  Let your intercession disrupt them.  Watch as God divides, confuses, and neutralizes the strategies of devils!  Watch as He pours out His Spirit upon America in a Great Awakening—and we will see a miracle in November 2020!  Hallelujah!

 

 

 

WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM?

A MANIFESTO FOR MY BLOG. Some have told me that when they see my posts that rebuke and warn, they wonder, “Mario, what is your problem?”  I do have a problem, but it is not what they think.  I am not negative, nor am I fearful.   I have not given up or given in.  None of those things are my problem.  My problem is of a different nature.

My problem is that I serve a God Who is limitless in power and wisdom, and His excellence infuses me with zeal to declare that we can be better, and we can do better, as a church and as a nation.

I see no place for compromise.  There is no reason to accept the slavery of the God-haters.  We are not supposed to sit down and shut up.   A weaker church with a smaller voice is not the new normal—it is blasphemy.

I believe Satan doesn’t stand a chance.  An amoeba would have a better chance of surviving on the surface of the sun than Satan has of surviving against God.  I believe that prayer and worship kills the devil’s lies.  I oppose any decision, by any leader, that is based on fear or unbelief.

Back in the day, we didn’t scare as easily.  Formerly, pastors didn’t have to seduce people into serving God.  We didn’t back down and we didn’t let ourselves starve on the table scraps of watered-down preaching.

I miss the days when the church was not the court jester to America, but was the conscience of the nation.  The church was a firewall against intellectual dishonesty, injustice, and depravity.  I miss those days.

But I am not railing because I am afraid those days are gone forever—it’s just the opposite.  I see no reason why we can’t have them back.  My resolve to bring those days back fuels my rebuke of pastors and secular officials alike.

Speaking of rebukes—let me clarify why I rebuke our leaders.  My rebukes are rooted in my conviction that America is a miracle.   We did not make ourselves great.  God made us great.  When you try to “fundamentally change America” and make her pro-late term abortion, pro-Islam, anti-Israel, anti-marriage, and anti-Christ, you are messing with God, and you need to know it.  You need to be rebuked.

When I rebuke our elected officials, I am not abandoning my call to the Gospel, I am preaching the true Gospel.   Look at Acts 3:14-15: “But you denied the Holy and Just One, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, and killed the Prince of Life, Whom God raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses.”

Peter unleashes a stinging charge that includes rebellion, because they denied the Holy One; perversion, because they chose Barabbas; and murder because they killed Christ when He was innocent.  Peter did all of this in the middle of a soul-winning sermon!

Don’t tell me, “Well, that was different.”  How can it be different?  Peter was giving the public and their leaders a tongue lashing for committing state sponsored murder, for engaging in tyranny, and for lying about it.  There is no difference.

But there is a big difference between Peter and many American preachers.  He did not worry that he would look hateful or unloving by leveling these charges.   He was not preaching to ‘make nice’—he was preaching to make disciples.   That is the ultimate love.

Peter also knew that the fate of Israel hung in the balance.  He was calling his nation back from disaster.  That is the same duty of every vessel of God in America: To call America back from disaster.

So let me ask you a question: What do you preach when you see history repeating itself?  No nation has ever done what we are doing right now that did not end in either a dictatorship or a totalitarian state.  Should I be silent?

Can you deny that Islamists are murdering Christians?  Can you deny that Democrats don’t care?  Do you see the Deep State cancelling our freedoms illegally?  Do you deny that our Constitution is being trampled upon?

The accusations of anger and extremism aimed at my writings begin to evaporate when you answer those questions honestly.   If anything, I am being too tame in confronting this disaster.

So the next time you wonder what is wrong with Mario, remember this:  My writing is driven by equal parts urgency and faith.  I cannot hold back because the fate of this nation hangs in the balance, and I cannot hold back because I know that my God loves America and is mighty to save.

BREAK THE HEAVINESS

The constant barrage of terrifying headlines and mainstreaming of perversion vexes the child of God.  These verses from Second Peter have never been more relevant than now: “and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked 8 (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds)— 9 then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment…” 2 Peter 2:7-9

Angry debates, violent rioting, filth paraded in the streets, Christian leaders renouncing their faith, persecution, and constant bad news can drain the sanity from our souls.

Not only this, but we are forced to keep all our enormous frustrations inside of us. While stupidity and wickedness get a megaphone—wisdom and righteousness get duct tape over their mouths.

These are the times that rob inner peace—that bring intense restlessness—that drain all the color and enjoyment from our life.

These are the times Jesus warned us of—and that He gave us direction for.

First He said, “And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But not a hair of your head shall be lost. By your patience possess your souls.” – Luke 21:17-19

Talk about mindless hate! Both the liberals and the feminists have incredible bias for Islam and sheer hatred for Christ and Christianity. It is mind-bending.  It makes zero sense.  Yet that is exactly the kind of irrational hatred our Lord predicted. It is weariness to believers who share their faith openly.

Then Jesus said, “But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. 35 For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth.” (Luke 21:34)

The dumbest thing anyone ever said to me was, “When you come to Jesus, your problems are over.”  I never had problems until I met Jesus!  I kept wondering, “Why am I being attacked?  Why am I being shot at from all directions?  Why do I meet stiff resistance every time I try to do something meaningful for Jesus?”

Does this sound familiar? You walk through life, minding your own business and wham!  A co-worker rages at you for no reason. Money evaporates.  Your health fails.  Loved ones abandon God.  Someone makes an irrational defense for wickedness. A confluence of demonic attacks falls on you.  Life has never felt so cruel and unfair.

At the apex of one of these attacks, something happened to me.  A terrifying thought became a glorious thought, “SOMEBODY IS MAD AT JESUS, AND THEY ARE TAKING IT OUT ON ME!”  Suddenly, I felt qualified to fight back. And I felt profoundly honored.

Think about it!  A soldier does not go to war because he has a personal grudge against the enemy.  He didn’t declare war—his nation did.  He is not responsible for the battle plan—the military is.  He is not paying his own way to the war—his government is.

Let’s take a look at the things that are not the soldier’s responsibility:  The training he needs; the weapons he uses; the food and shelter he requires; the assignments he receives—these, and a host of other things, are not his responsibility.

“What soldier ever serves at his own expense?” (1 Cor. 9:7) “…No soldier gets entangled in civilian pursuits, since his aim is to please the one who enlisted him.” (2 Tim. 2:4)

The soldier does not create the organized army.  He does not carry the weight of how the war will be won. If he sits in the foxhole feeling alone and unfairly attacked, it is because he has forgotten who he is and why he is being attacked.  He has taken the battle into his own hands!

But when he remembers that he was recruited—when he recalls that he is not alone, but part of a victorious army, and all he is called to do is obey orders, it changes everything!

When we take the attack personally, we lose hope.  But, when we say, “The battle is not mine, it’s God’s,” we cannot be defeated.  Let’s stay out of things that do not concern us.  Let’s keep our conflict in the hands of God.  We must discern when we are operating in our own strength and by our own wits.

Remembering your attacks are not personal is plainly seen in these verses where Jesus speaks about conditions in the last days:  Luke 21:12 “But before all this occurs, there will be a time of special persecution, and you will be dragged into synagogues and prisons and before kings and governors for My name’s sake. 13 But as a result, the Messiah will be widely known and honored.  14 Therefore settle it in your hearts not to meditate beforehand on what you will answer; 15 for I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist.

newspaper headlines

When they were arrested, it felt personal. When they were dragged to court, it felt personal.  But when they were asked to speak, it became God’s battle and Christ was glorified!  He gave them the words and the courage to speak.  He even told them not to prepare words beforehand.  That means that we are not to devise ways of fighting back.  It means we will get what we need, when we need it.

Paul experienced the same thing: Philippians 1:12 “But I want you to know, brethren, that the things which happened to me have actually turned out for the furtherance of the gospel…”

Right now we have a presidential election that embodies everything that is wrong with our nation.  It is a hair-pulling, maddening, terrifying, and draining moment for believers. We must put the battle back in God’s hands and let Him replenish our peace and our joy.

Never forget! We have the best message humanity has ever heard, and the best Book ever written.   We have the best Captain in the universe!  We have the all-powerful Holy Spirit, Who has been sent to aid us.   We have access to power, strategy, and wisdom.  All of this, and more, will direct our fighting.

Is someone mad at Jesus, and are they taking it out on you?  What an honor!  What an opportunity!  Whenever Satan comes at you, let Jesus come at him!

The first time an angel stares at you in heaven with wonder and admiration for your service to Christ, you will know why your trials were worth it all.  The first time you hear Jesus say, “Well done, good and faithful servant,” you won’t remember the suffering, the trials, or the battles.

No wonder Paul said, “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.”  -Romans 8:18

Hallelujah!  –

Your Power

Mass murder, debauchery, and the stress of nations—these things press on us daily.  We can feel the crushing weight of inadequacy. We ask:  Can we stay sane?  Is the moral situation so far gone that we must withdraw into our ‘faith cocoons’ and just endure, hoping we outlast the madness?

Ephesians 6:10 says, “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.’  But, how do we apply all that power and might to this flood of evil and stress that is bombarding us every day?

Not only can we apply it, we are expressly called—and uniquely equipped—to express the power of God.  The legacy of our faith demands it. The nature of the Holy Spirit—and the Word of God demand it.  There is no holding-pattern for us.  God only leads forward.

The religions of the world teach escape.  They deem the world to be too dangerous for their devotees.  Whether it is a Buddhist Monastery or a Muslim Caliphate, the message is clear: They can’t coexist with secular culture.  They require physical separation, cleansing rituals, strict diets, or the total subjugation of infidels.

With just a few simple words, Jesus revealed the vast superiority of our victory compared to all the religions of the world.   He prayed to the Father, “I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.” (John 17:15)

Supernatural peace can quell the deep frustration from hearing the insane ideas and words of politicians. 

When Jesus prayed that prayer, He was praying for us, His flock, to remain in the culture. We are to be warriors. We are to be salt and light. These are not just fighting words—they are an in-your-face smack down of evil.

While cultural contact withers the faith of false religions, it enhances the Christian—it sharpens their faith, brightens their light, and deepens their authority.

You must understand why you are here.  You must see the astounding picture of the army you belong to.  Our very presence on earth is God’s way of saying, victory is available.  He keeps us here because we can win!

Think of soldiers in an army who are only aware of the battle they are fighting in their own little sector. They are being hard-pressed, and things are going against them. If, for one moment, they think it is just their fight, they will soon be defeated. But when they remember they are only a part of a great and mighty army, and that the Captain, their Leader, the God of the Armies of Heaven is directing it, immediately the situation is transformed. In other words, we have got to realize God is involved in this battle with us. We are only here because of God.

The 3 steps I am about to declare will bring victory over the present evil and stress.  They hit me, when I saw two groups of people. They were hundreds of years apart and in totally different circumstances, but they took these identical 3 steps to victory.

One was a prophecy by Daniel around 600 B.C. The other, occurred in 31 AD.

In his prophecy, Daniel described how the Maccabean revolt would triumph in 167 BC.  The second instance happened when the people in the land of Gennesaret welcomed Jesus.  The former liberated Israel—the latter wiped out sickness and disease.  Again, they both took the same 3 steps.  Here are the scriptures:

Daniel 11:32 “Those who do wickedly against the covenant, he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong and carry out great exploits.”

Mark 6:53-56: “When they had crossed over (the Sea of Galilee), they came to the land of Gennesaret and anchored there. And when they came out of the boat, immediately the people recognized Him, ran through that whole surrounding region, and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to wherever they heard He was. Wherever He entered, into villages, cities, or the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well.”

Here are the 3 key words in both these victories: KNOW, STRONG, CARRY.  The first group knew God. They were strong. And they carried out exploits.  The second group did those same 3 things.  They recognized (knew Jesus).  They ran (showed strength).  They carried others who received miracles (exploits).

Take these 3 steps to defeat today’s stress and evil:

1. Obey God’s pull. He is pulling you to know Him in deep intimacy: Psalm 27:8 says “When You said, “Seek My face,” My heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.”  What is your reaction to God’s call? He wants to do a secret work in you.  Are you saying, “Yes”?

I believe Jesus is using this message from me to draw you into special closeness with Him.  If you say, “Yes,” special things will begin to happen.  You will instantly conquer fear and worry.  Isaiah 26:3 says, “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. “

Your faith for mighty things will multiply.  Jesus said,” If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.” (John 15:7)

God not only knew that the insanity of today was coming—He took steps to prepare a special relationship that would produce special powers for His children.  We can blame no one but ourselves if we neglect this astonishing invitation.

2. Become strong. What did Isaiah say would happen to those who heeded the call to wait on God? “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)

Your new-found and deep connection to God the Father will create strength.  Note once again, the amazing parallel between the phrases, “they shall run and not be weary,” and “they recognized Him and ran.”

‘Touchy-feely’ faith is out.  This is the era of strong Christians.  Tomorrow belongs to Christians who are stronger than any headline—stronger than threats—stronger than anything unfolding on the earth.

3. Accept your mission: You have a mission, you have an ordained exploit. It is ironic that the true cure for today’s fear and stress is: to think big and take on massive vision.  Fresh vision always chases away depression.

An exploit that summons up all your talent and every drop of your courage and combines it with His limitless resources, is comfort food for the Spirit-empowered believer.

The bottom line:  We are subjective creatures. We live in this unhealthy psychological generation that starts with man and ends with man. Most of our troubles are due to that. We are full of self-pity. We are always looking inward and feeling sorry for ourselves. We are always looking for something to help us. Get rid of those things! Forget about yourself for a moment, and realize that the battle belongs to the Lord!

You can know Him. You can become strong.  And you will accomplish amazing things in Him!  

 

 

 

 

Biden Caves

The mob now controls the Democrat Party. Joe Biden just proved it to us. On Wednesday, he blamed President Trump for the mass shootings in the U.S., accusing the President of inspiring deadly hate crimes by embracing white nationalist extremism.
Speaking to a group of supporters in Burlington, Iowa, Biden lashed out at the President in his most pointed remarks to date, accusing Trump of unleashing “the deepest, darkest forces in this nation.”
“We have a problem with this rising tide of white supremacy in America and we have a President who encourages it and emboldens it,” Biden, the 2020 Democrat frontrunner, said.
“Indeed, we have a President with a toxic tongue who has publicly and unapologetically embraced the political strategy of hate, racism and division,” he added.
How much evidence did he offer for this? Zero. What facts did he present? Zilch. What Trump quote did Biden cite to back his inflammatory accusation of hate, racism and division? Nothing. This is because the Socialist Party (formerly known as the Democrat Party) is now the Party of Zero, Zilch, and Nothing.

Biden knew he was lying. But he was also telegraphing something else to us, and that is the real story: it is that he has capitulated to the mob—those who want to bring chaos to America so they can step into the vacuum and take control.  More than that, he is admitting that the extreme Left has overcome and defeated moderate Democrats. He has concluded that, in order to win the nomination, he must now support the extreme positions of the Squad.
The “deepest, darkest forces in this nation” that he mentioned have nothing to do with Donald Trump—those ‘forces’ are to be found in the mob that ‘forced’ Biden to speak the lies he told today. He is telling us that both his bid, and Nancy Pelosi’s bid, to pull the Party away from the extreme Left has failed. It’s game over.
This is a first in American history. Masked marauders and club toting thugs will ultimately decide the platform of a Party that has utterly lost its way.
The truth of their collapse is unavoidable. The Mueller report was a hoax. It too, was based on a lie. Russian collusion anyone? It’s a hoax. White Supremacy?  In a nation that elected Barack Obama? Twice. You’re joking, right?

Today, they revealed their true identity. What is the Democrat Party? “We are the Party of masks, torches, bats, and knives. We are Antifa. We take our children to Senators’ houses and scream that they need to be stabbed in the heart. We are the Party that will hack your private information and destroy your property if you support Trump. Our members have produced a movie that advocates the murder of anyone wearing a MAGA hat.”
Mealy-mouthed Biden read a prepared statement written by rabble, rioters, and haters.  Today, though Joe doesn’t realize it, he has called out all of the real God-fearing people and lovers of freedom.  By embracing anarchy, he made it plain that those who value decency, morality, and faith, must work to remove this Party from power.

FREEDOM

When the racists call everyone else racist—when the fascists call everyone else fascists—when those who are full of hate—call everyone else haters, and society listens, then freedom is, truly, just a candle in the wind.

When the Left says that words can be the same as violence, and then they are found to be guilty by their own inflammatory words and actions, then freedom is a candle in the wind.

As John Daniel Davidson said, “Is it not divisive and inflammatory for Democrats to refuse to enforce our borders while promising to give taxpayer-paid health care to illegal immigrants? Is it not divisive and inflammatory for sports stars and corporations to denounce the Betsy Ross flag and the national anthem as racist? Doesn’t that exacerbate a feeling of helplessness and dispossession, and fuel a whole spectrum of responses—from ordinary patriotism to outright xenophobia and racism?”

When thugs don masks and beat innocent people in MAGA hats and these terrorists are coddled by Democrats and leftist media, then freedom is a candle in the wind.

Elizabeth Warren—who is still uncertain of her own race—blamed Donald Trump for “advancing racism and white supremacy.” She and the others on the Left are all but calling for a race war. When war is declared and the side that does not want war is blamed for the war, then freedom is a candle in the wind.

Worst of all, we see how evil they are, that they can immediately politicize a massacre.  They don’t care about the victims of the shootings. Bullets tore into the bodies of innocent people. Did any of the voices of manufactured outrage care anything for the families who lost everything in an instant? The shattered lives do not matter to them. The incurable sorrow will get no compassion from them.  To them, these families are just a photo opportunity—a prop to be used to alarm a nation into voting for them.

Instantly, Beto O’Rourke said that President Trump was a “racist” and had “a lot to do with what happened in El Paso yesterday.” Sen. Cory Booker was even more blunt, saying, “Donald Trump is responsible for this.” When masses of people can’t see how evil this is, then freedom is a candle in the wind. 

Most sane people reject the Right Wing conspiracy theory that says international corporate and political elites in the West are intentionally replacing their native populations with immigrants, in order to enrich themselves.

However, the Left isn’t trying to deny this.  The New York Times ran a Michelle Goldberg column under the headline, “We Can Replace Them,” which closed with this line: “In a week, American voters can do to white nationalists what they fear most. Show them they’re being replaced.”

Again John Daniel Davidson says, “This isn’t a new idea on the Left, and it isn’t relegated to the fringe. Back in 2002, Ruy Teixeira and John Judis came out with “The Emerging Democratic Majority,” which popularized and mainstreamed the idea that white Americans would be replaced by a permanent majority coalition of non-white voters. Ten years later, after President Obama’s reelection, Teixeira took to the the pages of The Atlantic to argue that things were playing out just as he had predicted, and that if Democrats could keep giving Americans what they truly wanted—more welfare, more regulation, more government control over daily life—then “the emerging Democratic majority could be here to stay.”

More recently, turning the white nationalists’ “replacement” rhetoric on its head has become commonplace among Antifa protestors chanting “we will replace you,” a sentiment powerfully reinforced by the anti-Immigration and Customs Enforcement protestors who recently tore down an American flag outside an ICE facility and replaced it with the Mexican flag.”

When such utter tyranny can advance unchecked, and is protected by a news media that is corrupt to the core, then freedom is a candle in the wind.

However, freedom’s greatest enemy does not reside in the camp of leftists, but in the pews of churches. A soundly sleeping generation of believers is our greatest enemy. Their apathy is our deepest danger.

But all is not lost.

History shows us that God does not wait for the lukewarm to rise to their duty. Our God is a consuming fire.  Do you wonder, why God doesn’t do something? You see America being torn apart, battered into submission, and molded into some ugly weak version of her former self. All in the name of progress. When those who are the moral bottom of society become the loudest voices of influence, shouldn’t God act?

I believe He is acting. But it is happening in a wholly unexpected way. He is at war to save our nation. The real question is, “Are you ready to understand what your assignment is in His war to save America?”

In a last-ditch effort to save America, God will pour out His Spirit. It will not be within the “system” but outside celebrated circles. It will restore much of Spirit-filled Pentecostal churches from business-model-entertainment-centers back to a movement.  Many small churches will become ground zero for the Glory of God.

This event will not be painless. Wicked agendas will topple. False doctrine will die an early death due to the healthy appetite of young converts. Church empires will be given the ultimatum to return to dependency on the Holy Spirit or be brushed aside, and suffer total loss.

God’s miracle will be a great boon to some, but a horrendous event for others. It will be a day of rejoicing and a day of mourning. It will be a complete display of extremes. God will do what He has to do to save this nation.

In this hour, it is not enough to be saved and filled with the Holy Spirit—not nearly enough. Every soldier of God must know what God is doing in their time. The New Testament begins and ends with the drama of willing vessels having their lives interrupted, ruined for mortal pursuits, commissioned for great exploits, and then launched into an amazing adventure.
