WHAT HER DEATH MEANS TO THE ELECTION

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead. I will neither vilify her nor praise her. My task is to show you the impact her death will have on the election. And trust me. Her departure is a game changer.

The nation will mourn briefly. Accolades will pour in from the left and the right. We will enjoy a brief respite from the war on the streets and in government. Very brief. Then something fierce will come our way. Well, here it is, by the numbers.

 

1. The short peace is but the eye of the storm. Riots, looting and demonstrations will increase. You will hear the most insane railings by protesters you have heard yet. You will hear vile accusations against Republicans, conservatives and Christians.

The unhinged voices of many like Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Nancy Pelosi, and Maxine Waters will billow like smoke from a fire at a tire factory. The thought of another conservative Justice on the bench will cause a panic that will soon foment rage and call for a coup against the President and Senate. Their fury will be directed at one thing: preventing Trump from selecting another Supreme Court Justice to replace Ginsburg. They will scream and declare it to be the end of the world.

2. The election is now all about the Supreme Court. The economy is no longer the main issue. Religious freedom and Second Amendment controversy moves to the back-burner. The opportunity to put multiple justices on the bench of the highest court in Trump’s second term will fire up the Trump base as nothing has so far. Enthusiasm for Trump will reach unprecedented heights.

But so will the fervor of the opposition. Even Biden may show a pulse. Prepare for filth, vileness, and bald-faced lies on a scale unknown in America—perhaps in the history of the world!

Our streets will be filled with angry mobs. The airwaves will ooze sludge against Trump. Obscenities, will abound, red-faced commentators will scream their disgust at Trump, and they will shame anyone who supports him.

THIS JUST IN: AT 10:10 AM PST, THE FIRST THREAT DELIVERED BY LEFTIST RADICAL ISLAMIST AND CNN HOST: “If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire f***ing thing down,” former CNN host Reza Aslan wrote on Twitter. “Over our dead bodies. Literally.”

Mitch McConnell has already lit the fuse for a political Armageddon over who will succeed Ginsburg, The Senate majority leader indicated that the vote will go ahead quickly. He implied that Trump’s nominee for the vacant position would be put to the vote before the election in November.

Therefore, the Democrats will have a complete meltdown. Look at how they behaved during Kavanagh’s confirmation. What will they be like in this current toxic campaign?

3. The Election could be postponed because of the chaos and rage Democrats will rain down on America. We already have a horrendous mail-in ballot issue in this election. It is a system run by people favoring Biden. The Postal Workers Union who will handle the mail have endorsed Biden. Democrats believe the fix is in.

If you know Donald Trump then you know he will have none of it. The entire voting process could be mired in lawsuits. We may not know who is President until next year.

What does this all mean? Something devastating and destructive? Actually, I feel just the opposite. The corrupt, criminal enterprise that is the Democrat Party and the Left needs to reach critical mass, and America needs to witness the destructive and evil crescendo.

But my final hope is in the chorus of prayer that is rising to heaven from all over our nation. Repentance, even from a remnant, avails much. We must bathe the next 46 days before the election in prayer. And vote for Trump!

I do not wish either looting, fires, or violent mobs on anyone. I despise their behavior. But perhaps when the behavior of these thugs—the thugs who are both out on the street as well as in the halls of power—is so blatant that the fake news can no longer hide it, America will conclude once and for all that the Democrat Party is utterly repugnant and unredeemable.

Let God arise, and His enemies be scattered!

Democrats: The Party of Atheism

Atheism can never just ‘coexist’ with Christianity. It is working to eradicate Christianity. The Democrat Party has embraced atheism, and has gone so far as to call it its biggest base.

Many are going to rail against this blog. But no one—no matter how outraged they become—will be able to controvert two facts: Atheism is proactively anti-Christian, and: Democrats have gone atheist.

We will take the second fact first. Here is what Democrats say about themselves:

“The Democratic National Committee (DNC) passed a resolution praising the values of “religiously unaffiliated” Americans as the “largest religious group within the Democratic Party.”

The resolution, which was unanimously passed at the DNC’s summer meeting on Aug. 24th this year in San Francisco, California, was championed by the Secular Coalition of America, an organization that lobbies on behalf of atheists, agnostics, and humanists on public policy. The group celebrated the DNC’s move as the first time a major party “embraced American nonbelievers.”

“Religiously unaffiliated Americans overwhelmingly share the Democratic Party’s values,” said the resolution, which adds that they should advocate for “rational public policy based on sound science and universal humanistic values.”

‘Sound science and humanistic values’ are their excuse to remove the civil rights of those who insist on believing in God.

You doubt me? Sarah Levin, director of governmental affairs for the Secular Coalition of America, praised it as a way “to ensure that policy is driven by science and evidence, not sectarian beliefs.”

That means that any part of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, considered by atheists to have come from “sectarian beliefs,” can be removed.

Result: No prayer. No worship. No church.

Again, do you doubt their intention about religious liberty? Right after ratifying their atheistic platform, Democrats took a shot at believers who use “religious liberty” to threaten the civil rights of LGBTQ Americans. What they really mean is the other way around. They will use this platform to not just threaten, but remove the civil rights of Christians.

Wake up! They want to overrule the Constitution to erase freedom of religion.  Christianity is their target.

Now let’s look at atheism itself. The Bible is not vague about atheism. Psalms 14:1, “The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none who does good.”

Why does the Word of God take such a harsh tone toward atheism? Simple, look at the fruit of atheism:

The taproot of Marxism is atheism. Marxism has killed 100 million people in the last century. Atheism provided the vacuum of conscience needed to ethnically cleanse Russia, China, North Korea and many other places where it operates as the engine of a culture. When the Bible says, “they have done abominable works,” it isn’t kidding.

Atheists suffer from elevated rates of depression and suicide, which they admit. Staks Rosch is a vocal atheist, humanist, and progressive. Writing in the Huffington Post he said, “Depression is a serious problem within the greater atheist community and far too often, that depression has led to suicide. This is something many of my fellow atheists often don’t like to admit, but it is true.”

Denial is not a new thing to the atheistic mindset. Atheistic Democrats claim to rely on science, but only when it suits them. Biology clearly and emphatically recognizes only two genders. Ludicrously, Gavin Newsom said that he based his decision to illegally close churches on science, but when confronted with biology, he noted that there are things more important than science.

The Democrat agenda blatantly believes many things are more important than science when it comes to climate, morality, equality and environmentalism. That is why the no-God-driven leftist policies of the West Coast are consuming entire states in wildfires, riots, addictions, and every misery known to man.

Democrats turn a blind eye to the scientific process when it comes to accountability. Their policies have imprisoned minorities in violence, despair and poverty. Do they rethink or reevaluate their catastrophic experiments as scientists would? Never!

It is time for every weak-willed Christian, sitting on the fence, to wake up to the agenda of atheism. Richard E. Simmons in his book Reflections on the Existence of God, compared Christianity and atheism by saying this: “They are not just two separate views of life; they are opposing, mutually exclusive, views, delivering opposite conclusions about the meaning of life and our existence as human beings.”

Atheism then, provides the necessary inhumanity required to justify dismembering a baby, in some cases cutting its vocal cords so that the team can’t hear it screaming. Atheism was the inevitable conclusion of a political party that needed a construct in order to live with blatant hypocrisy, complete fabrications of social conditions, and out and out hatred for American history and Judeo-Christian values.

And, indeed, if you vote for them, you are denying your faith.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TRUMP MUST DO AT THIS MOMENT

Alert! Facebook is banning this blog. We need your help to get this message out. Apparently, they see it as a threat to Biden’s election.

What a week! China is poised to hit us again. The shutdown continues to destroy lives, businesses, and churches. Revelations about the FBI are devastating. On the streets of Portland, Oregon, left-wing rioters keep burning down the most left-wing city in America. Meanwhile, the nation suffers through a most excruciating, stomach-churning pack of lies and propaganda: The Democratic Convention.

These are only the highlights of what President Donald Trump faces. On top of all of that, he must lead a reelection campaign in a system so rigged against him it boggles the mind.

Antifa and Black Lives Matter were caused by the Democrat Party, and they are in full rebellion against everything American. The Bible says clearly that “rebellion is like the sin of witchcraft” (1 Samuel 15:23), and we are seeing the full-blown rebellion, demonic hatred, violence and anarchy that they have summoned from hell.

Deciding what is the most important thing the President must do at this moment is really hard—but I believe I know what it is. Not only that, but I am also persuaded what the second thing is that he must do, if the first one fails.

Donald Trump and every decent American must do everything in their power right now to prevent a mail-in election. People must go to the polls and vote in person. Absentee ballots are one thing, but a massive vote-by-mail election guarantees tampering and corruption—a corruption Democrats are counting on. It will be impossible for Trump to get a fair count.

Leftist operatives man battle stations throughout the system that will count the votes. I will go so far as to say that mail-in ballots are Joe Biden’s only hope of winning. But the horror extends beyond that. All the votes for the Senate and the House and local elections will also be gamed by this racket.  I have no doubt that the fix is already in, and the only way to stop it is to demand that the courts enforce in-person voting.

The virus is just an excuse for this despicable deception. The church shutdown proves it. If they truly believe that the virus is as dangerous as they say it is, they would not have singled out the church for shutdown and have left big-box stores, bars, casinos, and marijuana outlets open. They used a big fat lie to close down our churches. Why? Because they hate the church.

Now, we see the same lie being used to unleash the most heinous sabotage of our freedoms in American history. The argument that people shouldn’t go to polling places is destroyed by their actions. It’s the ultimate hypocrisy of the Left: leftist protesters—in person on the streets—protesting against in-person voting. How rich is that? 

Think voter fraud is not being planned on a massive scale consider 20,000 fake driver’s licenses…


Mr. President you must combine all of your influence and all of your moral rage to focus on stopping this disaster. Shut it down before it happens with an executive order, and call out the National Guard to oversee the voting process. Everyone who loves America and loves freedom must treat the mail-in election as treason, and consider it as lethal as an armed invasion by a foreign army.

We must fight it in the courts. We must exhaust every avenue to influence rational Americans against this travesty. And if that fails…

But what if ‘that’ does fail and we have a corrupted election? Then we must—all of us—on a scale unknown in world history—repudiate the results and reject the election. Patriotic and God-fearing people—by the millions, must take to the streets if necessary and revolt against the calculated, despotic, banana-republic sham of a mail-in election. Otherwise, America will be lost forever.

Mr. President, do all that is in your heart to do, we are with you in this holy crusade.

IT’S TIME FOR YOU AND ME TO STOP THE MAYHEM IN OUR CITIES

The Black Lives Matter movement is not a majority—not even close. Its agenda, which is to destroy America, can be resisted and defeated. But not if ordinary Americans like you remain silent. As bad as the images and the threats seem—as misguided as the news media and big corporations like Coca Cola, and Verizon are—the biggest threat is the silence of the majority. But breaking that silence will be the undoing of this rioting, looting, and desecration of monuments.

I am not saying it is not a dangerous situation. I am not saying this terrorist movement will go away easily. I understand the reluctance of many of my fellow Americans, because this is such a new horror.

John Michael David said, “Under these conditions, many ordinary Americans feel disoriented and discouraged. Confusion abounds. When did it become racist to like the national anthem and Mount Rushmore? At what point did we decide George Washington and Abraham Lincoln were moral monsters, or that all police are racist thugs? Why are rioters and looters allowed to terrorize people and destroy property with impunity? Why aren’t local elected leaders enforcing the law?”

We know why they are not enforcing the law: it is because they hate Trump. These officials that run the protest cities are putting political gain above the safety and sanity of the people they swore to serve and protect. Worst of all, they are demoralizing the police. They have disbanded law enforcement.  I can’t think of anything so villainous as their decision to abandon single mothers, the elderly, and shut-ins who tremble helplessly in fear in these neighborhoods.

If you believe that this is crazy and must be stopped, you are not alone. If you know that nationwide white supremacy is a myth and if you know we are not a nation of systemic racists—well, there are millions just like you. Yes, in many cases our voices have been shamed and silenced, but that is by no means the end of the story.

We are in a cultural civil war. We are locked in a battle between those who believe in our Declaration of Independence—our Constitution—the rule of law, and equality. Yes, equality. That takes me to a big reason why this wicked movement is vulnerable.

The core leadership of BLM admits they are Marxists. Yet, they are either ignorant or hypocritical. Karl Marx was an avowed racist. You should Google what he said about black people, Jews, and Mexicans…yes, Mexicans.  ‘BLM Marxist’ is a self-cancelling label. To Marxists, NO LIVES MATTER. Only the revolution matters. This is why the historic death toll of Marxist revolutions is now over 100 million.

You and I, and not they, are on the side of equality. You and I are the ones who truly want justice. Many Black Americans do not agree with the Antifa/BLM manifesto for the overthrow of the United States. Sane Americans can see the madness of media and corporations who are pandering to the worst elements of society.

The lines have been deliberately blurred. Marxists foment chaos by generating hatred and violence. Their weapon of choice is the false narrative: ‘Enrage society over the death of Black people, but only those who are killed by a white cop.’ That is a drop in the bucket compared to those who are dying in abandoned neighborhoods every day. To BLM leaders, those black lives do not matter, because they won’t lead to revolution.

Look closely at the most angry and vile protestors. Who are the loudest, most obscene and out of control rioters? They are white, from well to do homes who have been radicalized in our brain-frozen universities.

It is because of all of this that you must shake off the doubt. I am sickened by Christian leaders who are chanting, “Black Lives Matter,” and yet are blissfully ignorant of how they are being manipulated.

We are being fooled into seeing them as powerful, and ourselves as weak. Again, from John Michael David: “In some sense this is entirely psychological. A relatively small group of radical left-wing activists is using classic cult psychology to wage psychological war against the rest of us. They are the vanguard of what can only be described as a religious movement in America.”

James Lindsay has gone further and described it as a cult, with recognizable and well-established features of a cult, such as initiation, indoctrination, and cult reprogramming.

We are way overdue in fighting back. It will not be easy. The radicals have seized the high ground of messaging. They have won the sympathy of the media, big tech, and corporate America. They control the Democrat Party and the majority of public schools.

However, they have one massive weakness: they are wrong. Dead wrong. And we who love God and country, are right. And, because they are wrong, God and nature are their enemies. Because they are wrong, they can and must be defeated. Because they are wrong you can shake off any shame you might feel when you are labelled a racist.

Of all the advice I could ever give you about our current situation, this is what I feel is the best advice: Do not let them make you feel alone. Remember how right our cause is. Remember our core values as Christians and Patriots.

Remember also, that even though there are millions who have participated in BLM/Antifa demonstrations, the actual radical core is small. They want you to think they are many, and we are few. The truth is just the opposite, and it is time we started acting like it.

Shaking off the helplessness is a start. Then contact your local officials and demand that they enforce the law. Tell them to stop the bedlam. Tell them in no uncertain terms that you are outraged by their gross dereliction of their duty. Tell them you are not going away, and you will not stop until there is action. It is time for the citizens in cities like Minneapolis, whose leftist City Councils have voted unanimously to disband their police force, to remove these cowards from office, and replace them with men and women who have the courage to protect those who protect us.

To the Spirit-filled believer, I say, “IF GOD BE WITH US WHO CAN BE AGAINST US?”

1 Samuel 14: 6 says, “Then Jonathan said to the young man who bore his armor, “Come, let us go over to the garrison of these uncircumcised; it may be that the Lord will work for us. For nothing restrains the Lord from saving by many or by few.”

God is searching for someone—small in their own eyes, but big in God’s eyes. He seeks someone to stand against evil by the weapons of the Holy Spirit. The first victory is summed up in these two imperatives:

We have no choice but to act. Civilization itself is now at stake. You can’t look your child or your grandchild in the eye and imagine letting this be their future. That will ignite in you the necessary will to act.

We are right, and right makes fight. We are not the first Americans to face an attempted total takeover of our nation by liars and villains. It is our turn to be brave like those who have gone before us. I leave you with the words of Abraham Lincoln:

“With malice toward none with charity for all with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan—to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.”

Vessels of Fire and Glory

Vessels of Fire and Glory is Mario’s newest book. It reached number one on Amazon among all Spirit-filled books. John Kilpatrick who led the Pensacola Revival said this after he read Vessels of Fire and Glory: “As I read the manuscript for Mario Murillo’s new book, Vessels of Fire and Glory, I said to myself, “Finally!” Mario has measured the church and the nation in this season and did not hold anything back. His honesty is like the sun rising inside a dark cave. This release is a paradox—it is sobering and refreshing; it is symptoms and the cure. I believe this revivalist has penned a treatise that should be in the hands of all who lead the work of God.”

 Edgewise

Here is a book about the end times with a totally different approach. It does not focus on how the world will end but on how to live as the curtain comes down on humanity. Powerful, practical, and encouraging.

Critical Mass

Critical Mass is the best-selling book Mario Murillo has ever written. It has been acclaimed as a classic on how to pray for, surrender to, and sustain revival. It is required reading in many colleges and training centers.

I WARNED YOU

If this doesn’t cause the Church of Jesus Christ to arise, nothing will. Several weeks ago, I issued a warning that has now become painfully real. I predicted that the Democrats on the Left would use the pandemic to permanently control the church.

On May 1, I had written: “Long after the virus is no longer a viable threat, every State under Democrat rule will keep churches closed as long as possible. And even after they allow us to open, there will be permanent irrational limitations placed on us.”

And these were my exact words on March 15: “Few things are more dangerous right now than the state drifting from justifiable health guidelines into police brutality. Only a fool doesn’t know about the growing outright hostility toward Christians in the Blue states. Their mouths are watering at the prospect of shutting down churches. They are looking for any excuse, and we must rebuke all demonic power and ask God to cause the fire of revival to fall on churches everywhere. The disruption of churches in America is from Satan. Pure and simple.”

Kansas City, MO, Mayor Quinton Lucas (D) issued the threat I warned you about:  “As Kansas City begins reopening, the local government is requiring every church who wishes to provide services to turn in, when asked, a detailed list of every person who enters their building for services, including name, phone number, and address, so city officials can use it for surveillance and tracking purposes. Failure to comply could result in up to 6 months in jail and the church being completely shut down.”

Do you honestly believe their surveillance will end after the pandemic? Do you think the data they collect will be deleted as soon as the virus is gone? Red China has nothing on Missouri.

Any pastor, who won’t risk jail rather than comply with this order, is, in my opinion, a traitor to the Constitution, his people, and his Bible. There, I said it.

The situation gets darker. Sacramento, California is the seat of this revolution to undo the rights of churches by using the virus as an excuse. They make Mayor Quinton look like a moderate when it comes to planning and executing a police state.

California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) admits the pandemic was the opportunity to pull the pin out of the grenade. When he was asked if he saw the virus as a political opportunity to advance progressive policies he said: “There is opportunity for reimagining a [more] progressive era as it [relates] to capitalism,” Gov. Newsom said. “So yes, absolutely we see this as an opportunity to reshape the way we do business and how we govern.”

Thus, California formed the Western States Alliance. Their prima facie purpose is to coordinate the reopening of California, Oregon, Nevada, and Washington. We know that this newly formed politburo will exert power long after the reopening. They will work together to force socialism and atheism on America. The U.S. Constitution is in their crosshairs.

This is California’s opportunity to accelerate their plan to weaken the local church and ultimately erase Christian influence from America.

Remember Assembly Bill 2943? Back in 2018, California tried to pass a bill that would have left a loophole open to make the Bible a “fraudulent document that could be banned,” because the Bible is opposed to “sexual orientation change.”

Now they are wounding the church by using nebulous guidelines for reopening. Get this: They keep changing the rules to keep pastors off balance and delay their public gatherings until it weakens all churches, and closes some church doors for good.

Gavin Newsom said that first he will go after capitalism and then he is saying, “wait’ll I get my hands on the church.”

The next step is to sneak in new rules for how the church will operate. Social distancing may continue indefinitely, putting an onerous burden on churches. It will be a political siege designed to force churches to cave, and decide it is not worth it to buck the system.

So what does all this mean? And what action does it demand?

First, we must admit they have declared an evil war on us. We must quit being cowards, and face the truth. They are doing evil. They want to drive the church underground. Doubt that fact, and you are part of the problem. Say it is someone else’s responsibility, and you are helping evil destroy America.

You know they are breaking Federal Law and the Constitution. Every believer must wake up and do their indisputable duty: to oppose this evil. The price of apathy at this point is incalculable. The curse you are putting on your children and grandchildren is a nameless horror.

What specific action should we take? Our action must first be to enter into Spiritual Warfare, but it cannot end there. Our battle plan is drawn from 2 Corinthians 10:4-5, “The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ…”

By the power of fervent intercession and unction in preaching, we must destroy the sophisticated argument that says the church should be oppressed by government, long after the pandemic is gone.

Then, when there is no reasonable danger of infection, pastors must reopen their churches, and if necessary, practice civil disobedience to laws that would keep their church shutdown for any reason that is demonstrably a matter of persecution and not a health issue. If enough churches do this, it will go to the Supreme Court, and the states will lose power.

Furthermore, preachers must tear up every talking point that California, and the Western Alliance demands you to preach in your pulpit. We must make it a matter of life and death to remain faithful to the Word of God.

Beyond that, we must operate our churches under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. If God wants your church packed out, then forget what the state wants.

Now, listen to me as you have never listened. Jesus said, “On this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it” Matthew 16:18.

Do you believe that verse? The ‘gates’ referred to are not just physical gates, but plans and strategies.

Jesus will never allow the plans that hell has to destroy the Church He is building. If we want the power of this promise, we must be the Church He is building—we must build His Church, right through the gates of Sacramento, if necessary.

 

THE WAY THEY HAVE THE CHURCH LOCKED DOWN

The left hates the church. This is fact and not fiction. You can count on them to use the coronavirus in an attempt to damage Christianity. Their ultimate goal is to sell preachers on a future church with a vastly decreased influence on the nation.

They proved both their hatred and their future plans by the way they closed the churches during this pandemic. They should have found a way to keep churches open, and they could have done so, easily: they found a way to keep “necessary businesses” like Planned Parenthood open.

But by not even trying to find a way, they made a very dangerous statement. The First Amendment to the Constitution states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…”

It is illegal to prevent worship. If there was any way possible to allow churches to remain open safely, they were duty bound to find it.

If it is in the Constitution that you can’t create a law which prevents American citizens from meeting for worship in churches, why did they do it? California’s Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) will tell you that it is necessary to close churches for the safety of the public. That is a bald-faced lie. California found a way to keep Walmart, Costco, and liquor stores open, as well as the Planned Parenthood death mills.

But when it came to churches, they didn’t even try. They didn’t even bother to consult pastors about what could be done. California is the epicenter of technology, and they couldn’t find a solution for safe worship? Why would they do this? Could it be they couldn’t find a way to keep churches open for the same reason a burglar can’t find a policeman?

The preexisting hatred for the church emboldened them to ignore their Constitutional priority to allow freedom of religion. This hatred is so blatant and open that Governor Northam of Virginia hideously overruled freedom of religion by passing a law that forces churches to allow men to use the ladies room.

Ever notice how the Left uses the phrase “freedom of worship” rather than “freedom of religion”? They do that on purpose. They use it to justify their bans on churches. They say, “You can worship God in nature, in your car, or in your house.” But “freedom of religion” means something else, entirely. Freedom of religion refers to houses of worship, doctrines, creeds and traditions.

Freedom of religion means you cannot write a law that overrules a religious conviction, but that is precisely what Northam did. He is saying, in essence, “I don’t care what your Bible says, I order you to violate your faith.” Using that logic, they could force Rabbis to eat ham sandwiches…

So why did they do all these things? This, my friend, was merely a dress rehearsal. They flexed their muscles to prove they could close down every church and keep them closed for as long as they wanted. If you think they won’t do it again—and next time, do it with far less justification—you are naïve.

The purpose of the test was to see how America would react. Look carefully at these verses:

Acts 12:1-3, “Now about that time Herod the king stretched out his hand to harass some from the church. Then he killed James the brother of John with the sword. And because he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to seize Peter, also.” Are you seeing a pattern here?

When Herod saw how murdering Christian leaders pleased the anti-Christian crowd, it emboldened him to arrest Peter. Bingo! That is what California and other States are doing. Testing to see how it plays with their base when they persecute the church.

Here is the tragic fact we must face. Millions were okay with the church shutdown because they hate President Trump and they see the church as his ally.

Long after the virus is no longer a viable threat, every State under Democrat rule will keep churches closed as long as possible. And even after they allow us to open, there will be permanent irrational limitations placed on us. Here in Reno, they opened the marijuana dispensaries today, but churches are still forced to remain closed indefinitely. Go figure.

I hate the term ‘wakeup call’ because it is vastly over-used. But, this really is a wakeup call. Just as Paul indicted the Philippian politicos for their gross violation of Roman law in Acts 16, we must take legal action against all the governors who illegally violated the Constitution, and who oppressed the church.

If we fail to come together in unity and act against this tyranny, we will be bitterly failing our children and future generations.

It’s a hard truth, but when it comes to defending freedom of religion, at this point, we can only look to God and ourselves. But if God be for us, who can be against us?
