MODESTO IS GOING TO BE SO DIFFERENT.

The tent has not just been holy ground—it has been ground-zero for life-altering miracles. As amazing as each Living Proof Tent Crusade has been―Modesto will be different.

Why do I believe this? Let me tell you why. California is a heartrending tragedy. People are abandoning it in droves. Every aspect of any quality life has been devastated here. California is not just suffering, there is a palpable grief that hangs like a heavy cloud over the people.

Now, nearly 2 million voters have signed the petition to recall Governor Newsom. His statement today about movement to have him recalled has only served to further solidify public opinion against him.

With his classic smugness, he insulted the 2 million signers and dismissed them as being nothing but rightwing loons and leftover Trump supporters who hate the mask. He is counting on the blindly loyal Democrat-base to forgive his towering failure and vote the party line. Never mind that 37% of those who signed the recall petition are Democrats.

This is the dismissive arrogance that got him into hot water in the first place.  It is the same disconnect that let him dine with family and friends at the French Laundry restaurant, while at the same time he was warning families to cancel their holiday gatherings.

Today, he reinforced why recalling him is the right thing to do.

And it is this very Democrat-created tragedy that is the biggest reason I expect the Modesto Tent Crusade to be different. The darkness and despair will itself be the catalyst for a fresh anointing and a raging river of miracles. The desperation of the people is why the power and presence will intensify. The cry of the people is reaching to the heavens.

A further reason it is going to be different is because of the workers. Psalm 110:3 says, “Your people shall be volunteers in the day of Your power…” Hundreds are lining up to work in the streets, in the neighborhoods, and in the tent. The groundswell of volunteers tells me this is the Day of God’s power!

These workers will join Frank Saldana and the army from Inner City Action on the streets. The workers are coming from everywhere. You can also volunteer! We will hit thousands of homes, bringing groceries and clothing, and we will minister in power to all of them.

To volunteer use this link.

The neighborhoods in Modesto where addiction and violence reign will be overwhelmed by this army of light and love. And because of our partners, we have more resources and supplies than ever! This will be the biggest invasion by far. But there is still more.

Every Saturday morning prior to the tent going up, hundreds, perhaps thousands, across America will jump on a Zoom Call to pray for the Modesto Crusade. Not only are we putting boots on the ground, we are sending up fervent prayer to the heavens.

But the most powerful promise that I have received from the Holy Spirit is this: Christ will be present in power like never before! That is what will make Modesto different. I cannot emphasize that too strongly. His presence will release miracle healing power like never before.

As I have said so often, we are the only movement in history where the Founder attends every meeting.

When even the most impossible cases walk into the tent, they will be healed and they will be delivered!

But the greatest reason I know that Modesto will be different, is embedded in these verses:

“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” (Mark 6: 54-56).

For reasons that transcend human persuasion, I know that the sense that Jesus will be in the tent is already creating excitement, a frenzy of action, and a profound sense of expectation. People are being told by the Spirit of God, Himself, “Jesus is the one and only reason to come to the tent and to bring every sick loved one that you can!”

Glory to God, Modesto will be different!

Here’s a special video message from Mario Murillo

DO YOU KNOW WHEN AND WHEN NOT TO SUBMIT TO GOVERNMENT?

Today we woke to the up to the sad truth that Democrats  have declared war. They are demanding unconditional surrender. No only from the church but from innocent citizens. Their war compels believers to look again at what the Bible says about evil laws and evil leaders.

Doesn’t the Bible tell us to obey them no matter what? Absolutely not. And it is shocking how many believers do not know their Bible or have been given false teaching. There is no verse in the Bible that tells you to obey evil government or laws.

If we don’t realize this now, we will sit back and let our nation be destroyed.

Christians during the American Revolution understood that the Bible does not teach us to obey evil laws or leaders. There would be no America if Christian Colonists believed they should obey the evil laws of England.

Let me prove to you beyond any doubt that the Bible tells us what we must do in the face of wicked government and laws.

First, I will expose a pathetic heresy that many believers commonly accept as truth. This is a widespread excuse for submitting when we should disobey.

Here is an example of someone who wrote me while under the influence of this false teaching:

“Out of curiosity, how do you justify your argument against obeying the government when you read Romans 13:1-7. The government Paul was talking about was even more oppressive than anything we can imagine. You could truly be martyred for your faith under the Roman government. And, what was Paul’s response? Did he call for governmental reform? Did he call for us to protest the government? Did he demand his rights and call on the government to recognize his rights? None of the above, he said, in the face of a brutal government, to obey. He didn’t say obey if your rights are recognized, he said obey. The church of today has to realize that the government is not our arena as Christians. Never, in the history of the church, has God used the government to bring about change.”

This man wrote me the definitive blurb on false submission. This defense of submission to evil government is riddled with error and falsehoods. Here are my responses to selected quotes:

1.You could truly be martyred for your faith under the Roman government.” First the writer tells us to obey evil laws, but then mentions martyrs. They never would have been martyred had they not broken the law by being Christians.

2. Then he asks, “Did (Paul) call for governmental reform? Did he call for us to protest the government? Did he demand his rights and call on the government to recognize his rights? None of the above…” The truth is, Paul did all of the above. “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” (Acts 16:37).

3. And finally, the zinger—the heresy that has sidelined the Body of Christ in the hour when we are most needed: “The church of today has to realize that the government is not our arena as Christians. Never, in the history of the church, has God used the government to bring about change.” Totally untrue. William Wilberforce was a Christian who used his faith in Jesus to abolish slavery in England. In fact, believers throughout history have created child labor laws, health regulations, and have exposed injustice, and corruption. It is safe to say that Christians are more responsible for influencing government, bringing about reform by forcing laws to be changed, and standing up for justice, than any other group in history.

So how did this writer get it so wrong? By doing what so many do. Isolating one set of verses, taking them out of context, and arriving at a conclusion that looks holy, but is in fact, pure and simple fear.

Let’s look at the verses that have been violated:

“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore, whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. Therefore, you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for the sake of conscience. For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor (Romans 13:1-7).

It seems to say that we are to honor government in every form, right? Wrong. To demonstrate what Paul is saying I offer this example. Say some parents leave the house, and leave the oldest child in charge. The child is given strict instructions not to open the door for anyone, except for a postal messenger whom they are expecting to deliver an important package that day.

The parents tell the child, “He will have blonde hair. He is wearing blue jeans and a white shirt. Don’t let anyone else in.” So later, a man with black hair, a blue shirt, and black slacks knocks on the door claiming to be the messenger with the package. Do they let him in? Of course not.

Lost in all the quoting of this verse on submission to government is the most important part: The description of the ruling authority. The Bible tells us what they are wearing! Look at the description:

1.They are not a terror to good works. Any government that terrorizes the innocent is not of God. How can you say that Hitler was God’s will for Germany? Hitler and other tyrants are in fact the ones being warned that there were God appointed governments who would destroy them: “But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.”  That is why the just powers of the world rose up and destroyed the Nazis.

2. They praise good works. Authorities that are endorsed by God do not hate or oppose Christian activity. They are the ones who—even if they are not Christian themselves—do not insult soul winning or fight the work of God. They are the cops, teachers, politicians who are glad that children are getting out of gangs and off of drugs.

3. You must be subject for the sake of conscience. When it becomes tricky, is when government is a mixture of right and wrong. Jesus said of the Pharisees, “Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, but do not do” (Matthew 23:3).

Do what they say, but don’t partake of their hypocrisy. Watch them for that moment when they cross the line and come between you and your God.  Just as our conscience should drive us to obey the law, we should also know when our conscience tells us not to obey an evil law.

Here’s when Peter reached that tipping point, speaking to those very same Pharisees: “So they called them and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered and said to them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:18-20).

And again, in Acts 5:29, “Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.””

God not only does not endorse evil government: He will have no part in it. “Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with You—they who frame and hide their unrighteous doings under [the sacred name of] law?” (Psalm 94:20). There is your answer. A corrupt throne (government) cannot be allied with God. He cannot have fellowship with it. 

When a government creates evil laws God cannot be allied it—because evil laws are the worst form of wickedness.

 They are damnable because they give legitimacy to evil.  Matthew Henry said, “Iniquity is daring enough even when human laws are against it, which often prove too weak to give an effectual check to it; but how insolent, how mischievous, is it when it is backed by a law! Iniquity is not the better, but much the worse, for being enacted by law; nor will it excuse those that practice it to say that they did but do as they were bidden.”

Notice how at the end, Henry says we can’t use the excuse that we were just obeying the law.  That is why Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”

The laws being created by Democrats, using the coronavirus as an excuse, are far worse than the virus itself because, unlike the virus, those new laws become permanent.  It is time for the church to wake up and take action, beginning with voting the evildoers out of office and quit calling our submission a godly thing, when it is just a cowardly thing.

“WHO WILL RISE UP FOR ME AGAINST THE EVILDOERS? WHO WILL STAND UP FOR ME AGAINST THE WORKERS OF INIQUITY?” (Psalm 94:16).

Here’s a special video message from Mario Murillo

SUPPORTING TRUMP WILL NOT RUIN MY WITNESS

One of the arguments made by the editor of Christianity Today Magazine was that supporting Trump ruined our witness to America. No one yearns to win souls more than I do, therefore, I will tackle this argument, beginning with a story that seems to be analogous.

After the United States Army liberated the German concentration camps, General Eisenhower viewed the incomprehensible horror. His reaction was to make every soldier in the area come and see it for themselves.

When he was asked why he had subjected these men to such savagery and why he forced them to view images which they could never wash from their minds, he said this, “We are told that the American soldier does not know what he was fighting for. Now, at least he will know what he is fighting against.”

Millions of Christians look at Trump and see a man who is not perfect. He is not their model of a true believer. They reject him because they know what they are striving for: gentleness, civility and increased church attendance. What they do not know is what they are fighting against.

I know this, because whenever they attack Trump they offer no alternative for the office of President. They can’t tell you who else they would rather vote for. Or they assume it doesn’t matter if Democrats win. They only know they are offended by Trump’s behavior. But how does his behavior appear when compared to the horror of what the Left will do to this nation?

No doubt American soldiers had heard of the atrocities committed by Hitler and the Nazis, but they had not witnessed it first-hand. That is, not until they saw with their own eyes the ovens, the mountains of bones, and hundreds of rotting corpses.

Likewise, it is one thing to see leftists selling candles that say “Abortions are magical” and quite another to witness a baby being dismembered in an abortion clinic.  Or to see a baby survive an abortion and then overhear an impossibly inhuman conversation, such as, “We’ll keep it comfortable until the doctor and the mother can decide what to do next.”  How worried are you now, about how ‘rude’ Trump appears?

Does it ruin my altar calls in the tent when I support President Trump? Please, don’t reveal your ignorance if you don’t realize what an inner city is actually like. It is a cruel, disgraceful, soul-crushing place. And it’s the total property and legacy of the Left. They have crushed all decency in every city they control.  Hopes and dreams die daily on an unprecedented scale.

California’s inner cities scream of injustice and abhorrent abuse. Not only is the machinery of government not stopping homelessness—they are actually causing it!

When I stand in the tent and proclaim the miracle of new life in Jesus, I declare the hope, the power, and the love that awaits them. I challenge them to break free. Of course, they need to be freed from sin. They need to be freed from addictions. But they also must be set free from something else.

It’s a funny thing that no one in the church attacked me when I preached against heroin. No one criticized my messages against violent gangs. But when, by the Holy Spirit, I identified a drug worse than meth, which is socialism, and a gang worse than MS-13, the baby slaughtering, corrupt, Left, suddenly I was surrounded by timid souls who tried to hide behind empty platitudes.

Will supporting Trump ruin my witness? Not for the masses who crowd our altars for Jesus. They couldn’t care less about political correctness.

Wake up Christian! Don’t be like those reluctant recruits who served under Patton and hated him because they thought him a crude and nasty leader but they  forgot the monster he was trying to kill. Be honest! Do you not see the blatant abuse of power? Do you not see how power is being centralized under tyrants who hate God, who hate freedom, hate your faith, and want to dominate your children’s future?  Can you not see how vicious they are, how deviant they are and how determined they are to manipulate every aspect of American life?

I never neglect to preach a scripture-laden message to lost souls. They understand what I mean when I tell them to get off drugs. But, I also tell them they need to get out of the mental-slave-plantation of the Left. It’s lukewarm Christians who don’t get it.  Is it because they don’t want to?

You may know what you are fighting for, but I am for Trump because he knows, like I know, what we are all fighting against, and what the stakes are if we lose America.

500 PRO-ABORTION, GLOBALIST PASTORS CALL BELIEVERS WHO BACK TRUMP FALSE CHRISTIANS

500 ‘Evangelical’ pastors recently wrote a letter that accuses believers who support Trump of not being Christian. They have even invented a new term to describe what they believe to be a threat to the world. They have coined a new title! “Christian Nationalists.“

I want to show you how wrong and misguided this letter is. We will begin with a tired model that anti-Trump “Christians” keep misapplying, likening Trump’s America to Nazi Germany.

These pastors who call themselves evangelical are trying to say that there is a group they have labeled ‘Christian Nationalists’ who are attempting to do with Trump what ‘misguided’ German Christians did with Hitler. And of course, their intention is to make you think of Trump as a kind of Hitler.

In fact, these pastors fancy themselves the new Dietrich Bonhoeffers. But they couldn’t be more unlike that heroic German pastor who opposed Hitler. Indeed, these pastors have it totally backwards. Instead of being men and women of conscience, they are guilty of a profound compromise and deception. The letter they wrote is diametrically opposite of what Bonhoeffer stood for.

For starters, if Trump is like Hitler, he is doing a terrible job. The media is against him. Academia is against him. Social media is against him. Hitler, on the other hand, controlled everything. He suppressed all opposing thought. He created the original cancel culture. So, in those ways, Hitler would be more akin to the Left who seek to destroy all opposition. Link to letter is below.

Where these pastors get it so wrong is in their ignorance of what ‘right wing’ is and what ‘left wing’ is. The fact is, Nazism is leftist, just as Communism is leftist. To call Nazism extreme right, is a fallacy.

Nazism began as socialism. Yes, indeed socialism is the spawn of the far-left regime known as Nazism, aka the National German Socialist Workers’ Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei or NSDAP).

Again, Hitler was not right wing. He was left wing. No conservative can be a Nazi. A true conservative innately abhors Nazism. Conservatism, as implied by its very name, seeks to conserve the values of a nation, and is thus the natural enemy of both Nazism and Communism.

But this is only the beginning of their errors.

They have invented the term “Christian Nationalists.” The 500 pastors characterize this fictional group as being composed of Trump supporters who serve Jesus, but have blurred the line between being American and being Christian. In the view of these 500 pastors, ‘Christian Nationalists’ believe the Constitution and Declaration of Independence are divine documents equal to scripture, and that they are a grave threat to American freedom.

So, I did some checking, and that reminded me of Grape Nuts.

First, let me ask you about Grape Nuts cereal. Have you ever looked in a box of Grape Nuts? There are no grapes and there are no nuts, and in that same way, Christian Nationalists are like Grape Nuts. You can’t find them anywhere, but according to these pastors, they are everywhere. Instead, finding a Christian Nationalist—a Christian who puts the Declaration of Independence on the same level as the Bible—among those who support Trump, is like trying to find lips on a chicken.

The Christian Nationalist narrative is the Evangelical-woke-pastor’s version of the Russian Collusion hoax.

These pastors are telling an out and out lie. More to the point—Christianity Today Magazine is also telling a lie. Christianity Today, to quote them about the riot at the Capitol building: “The responsibility of yesterday’s violence must be in part laid at the feet of those evangelical leaders who ushered in and applauded Trump’s presidency. It can also sadly be laid at the feet of the white American church more broadly.” That is a lie. A pretty big lie.

Let’s unpack the lie: Trump vehemently opposed violence. He even implored the audience on January 6th to protest peacefully. That is why Trump was acquitted a second time.

What makes it an even more heinous lie is the tinge of racism in the lie about the feet of the white church. A larger percentage of black and Latino voters cast their ballots for Trump. Motivated by their pastors, they voted for Trump in greater numbers than for any Republican in history. Why do these WOKE pastors make it a white thing? The answer to that is chilling.

Why do I believe these pastors are not like Bonhoeffer, but more like the pastors that Bonhoeffer rebuked? It is because they are being silent about the true tyranny currently in the White House.

Furthermore, I do not believe that these pastors are behaving like Bonhoeffer. This letter smacks of the opposite of Bonhoeffer. They sound more like the liberal German preachers who attacked Dietrich for pulling the church into politics.

That explains why one of these evangelical leaders also makes a scathing attack on Eric Metaxas who wrote the definitive biography on Bonhoeffer.

One of Bonhoeffer’s biggest accusations against pastors was their silence. Bonhoeffer said of them “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act. And God will not hold you blameless.”

The 500 pastors who signed the letter are probably howling because I call them pro-abortion and globalists. I will add also that they are racist for continuing the white supremacy narrative. The reason I do is because of their silence—the very silence Bonhoeffer condemned.

Do you hear any of them condemning the Equality Act? The Equality Act puts men in the little girl’s restroom. It is the kind of law that will cause incidents like what happened recently when a man was put in the MMA ring with a woman, and he cracked her skull.

When was the last time any of these 500 men and women condemned the unspeakable evil of abortion from their pulpit? The slaughter of the innocents by doctors is an evil reminiscent of the Nazi ovens and Joseph Mengele.  Hitler’s Final Solution killed about 10 million men, women and children―so far, since 1973, Roe v. Wade has killed over 61 million babies.

Some of these liberal pastors heartily approve of so-called Christian organizations, like Sojourners that have taken money from globalist George Soros.

Because of their blindness about Nazism being right wing, they can ignore the real threat: the total blackout of civil discourse from Democrats. The yawning overreach of the Biden administration. The growing threat to freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

Jesus talked about straining at a gnat, but swallowing a camel, in Matthew 23:24. Here is the gnat they strain at: the mythical threat of ‘Christian Nationalists.’ Here is the camel they are swallowing: the vast tyranny of the Democrat Party and the fact that the church is in the crosshairs.

Here is the clincher that proves they are not at all like Bonhoeffer: Paul D. Miller, a leading proponent of the lie about the mythical ‘Christian Nationalist’ threat, attacks Eric Metaxas—the author of the biography, titled Bonhoeffer. Miller said, “The hardcore ideologues need rebuke; for example, Eric Metaxas and how he has gone hard in the direction of pro-Trump advocacy and Christian nationalism. I disagree with him and I think that he’s harming himself, the nation, and the gospel.”

Two burning questions: Why is Miller attacking the foremost expert on Bonhoeffer? And why did Metaxas, the leading expert on what Germany was like at the time of Hitler, conclude after surveying the current landscape, that Trump is the one to support?

Why have these 500 taken such a hard left turn? And why have they demonized an innocent group of believers? Let me give the answers in order: A desperate pharisaical need for acceptance from academia and a misguided sense of superiority over their brothers and sisters in Christ.

These pastors want to look Woke to the establishment. They do not want to stand out. They yearn for academic acceptance. Matthew 23:5-7 says “But all their works they do to be seen by men. They make their phylacteries broad and enlarge the borders of their garments. They love the best places at feasts, the best seats in the synagogues, greetings in the marketplaces, and to be called by men, ‘Rabbi, Rabbi.’”

Interestingly, this same weakness that kept pastors quiet about Hitler, is keeping these leaders quiet about the evils of Biden.

They do not have a valid argument; they only have a contempt for Christians who support Trump. That contempt is an arrogant sense of superiority. Look at how loaded this question to Miller was in this article in Christianity Today: “Question to Miller: ‘What is the draw of Christian nationalism to the “poor, uneducated, and easy to command” Religious Right, as they’ve been described?’”

Now look at what a former editor of Christianity Today, Mark Calli, said about Trump supporters: “I know hardly anyone, let alone any evangelical Christian who voted for Trump. I describe evangelicals like me as ‘elite’ evangelicals … and this class of evangelicals has discovered that we have family members so different they seem like aliens in our midst. These other evangelicals often haven’t finished college, and if they have jobs (and apparently a lot of them don’t), they are blue-collar jobs or entry-level work. They don’t write books or give speeches; they don’t attend conferences of evangelicals for social justice or evangelicals for immigration reform. They are deeply suspicious of mainstream media. A lot of them voted for Donald Trump.”

These words are chillingly similar to former President Barack Obama’s description of rural voters who “bitterly cling to their guns and Bibles,” and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s characterization of Trump supporters as “deplorables.”

That contempt is also in Miller who is part of the 500 and who believes Trump supporters need to be deprogrammed: “I think the ambassadors are the deceivers and they need to be expelled and rejected,” and, he concludes that we, as Trump supporters, “all need to be deprogrammed.”

The letter from this group of 500 liberals serves a darker purpose: to intimidate Christians into silence. Kylee Zempel in her article entitled, “Stop Smearing Christians As ‘Christian Nationalists’ Just Because They Value Both Faith And Freedom,” said this:

“…stories about so-called Christian nationalism would love nothing more than to shame and bully faithful disciples into sitting down and shutting up. The Capitol riot was a convenient hook for their narrative, but they don’t just believe the people who showed up in Washington that day were religious extremists. They think all Christians are. It isn’t that they don’t want you in Statuary Hall. It’s that they don’t want you on the school board, in journalism, or on campus. They want to chase you out of churches, out of public office, and even out of political conversations.

“As long we remain on this Earth, Christians will be assailed as bigots and nationalists. This evergreen dynamic of Christians being not “of the world,” but striving to be faithful while they’re “in it.”  Don’t confuse true believers who rightly fight for both faith and freedom as Christian nationalists. They’re just Christians.”

Amen!

Bottom line? What is the reason for the hatred of Christians, the Church, and Donald Trump? The Bible says, “Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! For the devil has come down unto you, having great wrath, knowing that he has but a short time” (Rev. 12:12)

Make no mistake: the stealing of the 2020 election and the frantic push by the current regime to undo everything Trump put into place is designed to reshape America into a Marxist, atheistic version of Orwell’s 1984 that would be unrecognizable to the founding fathers. It is part of the relentless plan of Satan to destroy this nation, the last bastion of freedom in the world.

OVERCOMING EVIL WITH EVIL: WHY “WOKE” WILL DIE A SICK JOKE.

As irresistible as it may seem now—as mighty and unstoppable as it looks now—I want you to remember that I told you this. The Woke movement will go down in American history as the stupidest, most embarrassing abandonment of common sense, ever.

Historians will scratch their heads. They will ask themselves how on earth anyone could have taken such cringe-worthy idiocy seriously. The tombstone of Wokeness will read, “WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?”

So, what is it exactly about Woke that makes it so banal, insipid and intent on self-destructing? What makes it so vulnerable to collapse? Why will this soufflé not rise twice? The answer is found in an admonition from the Bible. 1 Peter 3:9 says, “Do not overcome evil with evil.”

Wokeness will implode under the weight of its own moronic self, because it is using evil to overcome evil.

The all-wise Woke ones believe they are taking us from bad to good, but, because what they are doing is itself evil, they can only take us from bad to worse. A lot worse!

Take their solution to sexual equality. It is evil. The Woke are not working for LGBTQ equality. They are working for domination. If you do not use the sanctioned pronouns—if you do not deny science and call people by whatever gender they “self-identify” with, you will be cancelled.

The Woke don’t want inclusion. They want exclusion. And they want it in its worst form. They don’t want diversity. They want a standard mind, a standard opinion and an unquestioning allegiance to a vast contradiction.

But it will fail because Biden’s new Equality Act will not bring equality. It will instead destroy equality, because it comes from an evil premise. A premise of brutality and religious persecution.

The Left brutally erases any opinion that is not Woke. But they also want to erase the person. They do not want dissenters to make a living. They want private information put out there on the street for the purpose of harassing, threatening and attacking. And, they want to hit houses when wives and children are alone.

You can count on Wokeness to make anything it touches much worse than it was before. Ah yes, racism is the shining example of their braindead philosophy.

Somewhere Satan is laughing because of how close he came to losing his favorite form of hatred: Racism. America was well on its way to amazing progress, when someone decided to get minorities to stop working on their future and, instead, regurgitate the past.

Let me explain how Woke works. At the top of the pile are people who only want power and money. But they also need camouflage. What better way to hide greed and a lust for power than to ‘virtue-signal.’ You know, look like a do-gooder and talk in ethereal terms about climate, race, gender, and well, you know the list.

Now, your job as a Woke liberal is to deceive the young who are prone to idealism. Identify villains and make it cool and enlightened to hate. Only they will tell you it is not hate—it is all for the greater good.

Back to Satan. He laughed because he almost lost racism until he mutated the virus of racism so that now racism looks like anti-racism. Wokeness says, hating white people and assuming all of them are arrogant is not racism. Forcing them all to be reprogrammed is not racial oppression. Universities who ban white students from clubs and classes—well, that can’t be racism.  Coca Cola foolishly instructed its workforce to be racist by making them think they were becoming unracist. Coke went Woke, and may go broke.

Magically, the civil rights movement ‘woke’ up at war with Martin Luther King. He hoped for the day when content of character would mean more than skin color.  Wokeness believes white people have no character. That is why hell is rejoicing. Racism survived by changing form!

Satan is wrong. He is always wrong. The Woke joke is going to fall in on itself in a heap of sputtering rubble. Because it is a lie—a heinous contradiction—and it is evil and hateful at heart.

Already the mask is coming off of this absurd experiment. Yes, right now, people are fooled, but I don’t believe it will last. As the old saying goes, “You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.” 

Wokeness…be on notice: your fifteen minutes of fame is almost over.

But there is one last reason Wokeness has an expiration date: it hates the Gospel of Christ. It is in the Gospel that we find what Wokeness can never deliver. Racial equality is in Christ. Natural love and the key to functional families is in Christ. Economic justice is in Christ. The Gospel remains the greatest news mankind has ever heard. Wokeness, on the other hand, is an embarrassing counterfeit.

WHAT THEY MEANT FOR EVIL, GOD WILL EXPLOIT FOR GOOD.

Someone has wrapped a noose around the neck of free speech and every other right we hold dear. Opposing opinions are being choked to death in America. I get why tech giants are fine with wielding oppressive control over people’s opinions—I have never seen them as anything but greedy and power hungry. They are not, as some naïve ‘woke’ folk claim, “trying to save democracy.”

And yet, strangely, I feel a calm sense of hope amid all of this.

What I do not get is why many of the elements of the media, key intellectuals, and some mainstream institutions that have been wise and objective in the past are now strangely quiet during the censorship, silencing, and even the cancel-culture obliteration of many American lives. Such widespread acceptance of tyranny by them is totally new to America.

And still, I feel a great hope, even in this situation.

What is also new is the attitude of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, along with the Democrat Party. They have made it abundantly clear that they are not going to reach out to the millions who voted for Trump. They are moving on without us. No one has ever had that attitude after “winning” an election.

Does that sound like something is being forced on us? It should. 2020 has been a year full of things forced on the American people. Since they forced their election upon us, why would they feel any need to work with us?

What is happening to America is evil. Preplanned and premeditated evil. We are watching something that was hatched decades ago and is finally upon us. So why do I feel hope in a seemingly hopeless situation? Precisely because it is evil.

Genesis 50:20 says, “But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive.”  Those words were spoken by Joseph to his brothers who had sold him into slavery. That vicious act was exploited by God to promote Joseph into a position of royalty in Egypt, in order to save a nation from famine.

It is time for you to settle your spirit behind a historical fact. God has always punished evil in America, even when it looked impossible. Of course they will try to bury our history. It is there that we find the irrevocable evidence of God’s intervention in America. It is not simply the people of America that God loves, it is the idea of America. In order for that idea to be destroyed, you would first have to get past our omniscient and loving God.

Many believers are throwing in the towel too early. We could very easily see a miracle in a few days. That miracle would cause unprecedented nationwide convulsions. Or it could take longer. But one way or another, surely and eventually, the evil will be exposed and it will be punished.

God may do it by changing the tide of public opinion. Another way is by exposing the evil acts and those who have committed the evil. One thing has already begun:  because Fake News outlets such as CNN have openly called for the shutting down of any news outlets that do not spout Democrat Party propaganda, such as One America News Network and Newsmax, Christian conservatives have been forced to build their own mass media—something they should have done long ago.

Another way may be the sudden groundswell of hunger for righteousness, which I see sparking mass conversions. The tide of revival is only just now beginning to crash upon our shores.

What the minions of Satan mean for evil, God will exploit for good, in order to save many.  You can either let the images of blasphemy and arrogance drain your spirit or you can take your stand, lift up your head and anticipate the inevitable intervention of the Holy Lord of the Armies of Heaven!

REMEMBERING THE SILENCE OF HIS FRIENDS

Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends”. 

Nothing is more enraging to Americans than the feeling that their government does not care about them. Americans hate feeling powerless. They see entitled elites openly ignoring their pain and acting with total arrogance. It is an arrogance that is utterly unconcerned about consequences.

They go to beauty salons, but you can’t. Then they use their power to put that salon out of business. The same with restaurants that are forced to close down. They tell you not to travel, and then two hours later, they are on a jet to visit their relatives.

I say this, because politicians live in a bubble and do not know what you and I think. Mainly because they don’t care. And they don’t care because Washington D.C. is a seductive, soul-sucking atmosphere where ideals go to die and compromise can even look heroic.

Here is why there is so much pressure on Trump’s friends to abandon him. They are being threatened that they’ll lose elections in the future. They are being yelled at for “tearing the nation apart and starting a civil war.” 

Look at Mitch McConnell’s flip. It almost sounds sociopathic. He went from praising Trump’s “endless achievements,” to calling him a criminal. They believe their betrayal of Trump will have no lasting repercussions.

But they could not be more wrong. The silence will be remembered by all real Americans.

Again, the greatest frustration of most Americans today is that they feel powerless when they realize that their government officials do not care a lick about them. That is why Trump attracted vast crowds in out-of- the-way rural enclaves.

But even in the bluest states, they are enraged. They see these arrogant elites callously get their hair done, even as they shut down barber shops and salons. They go to restaurants where they dine, wearing no masks, but we are told never do so, and so, restaurants die. ‘Only,’ they say, ‘please wait to die until after you have fed us…

I know that silence is tempting. I know you believe that if you stand with Trump there will be pandemonium. That is the pull of the expedient. But in the long run, it is a mistake. A big mistake.

We will remember the silence of our friends long after we have forgotten the words of our enemies. It isn’t just Trump who will remember. Nearly 80 million Trump voters are going to remember your silence.

Just because we don’t burn down buildings and riot, that does not mean there isn’t wrath among those of us who voted for Trump. Just because we won’t threaten to kill you, like the Left, does not mean we can’t do earthshaking things.

Right now, it seems that speaking out will bring nothing but misery. That is because the consequence of silence will come later―and when it does, it will be breathtaking.

At the risk of being very corny, let me quote some dialog from Casablanca. Words from the closing scene, when Rick tells Ilsa why they can’t be together.  “If that plane leaves the ground and you’re not with him, you’ll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life. But I’ve got a job to do, too. Where I’m going, you can’t follow. What I’ve got to do, you can’t be any part of. Ilsa, I’m no good at being noble, but it doesn’t take much to see that the problems of three little people don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Someday you’ll understand that.”

You might feel safe in betraying a good friend. You may not regret it then. But, in the end, we will remember the silence of those who claimed to be the friend of one of the greatest Presidents in history…and you will regret it for the rest of your life.

The last and most compelling reason for you to speak up is embodied in a warning from the Book of Esther. “For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Esther 4: 14

Trump has a destiny in America. You can speak up for him and face the immediate backlash that gives way to a lasting blessing. But if you remain silent Trump’s destiny will be fulfilled anyway but you will pay the price of an ended career. You will never be worthy of trust again.

 

 

 

WILL YOUR VOTE EVER MATTER AGAIN IN AMERICA?

The Democrats have just declared that in the recall of California Governor, Gavin Newsom (D), they want to verify every signature in the petition. They will not allow illegals to sign. They will not allow double-counts. Every signature must be from a registered voter with proper I.D. Oh, and no mail-in signatures.

In short, everything they allowed in order to defeat Trump will be forbidden when it comes to protecting one of their own. Do you see how that works?

Not only that, but in a recent Time Magazine article, it was admitted that the Left rigged the election to defeat President Trump. No wonder millions feel their votes will never matter again. https://thefederalist.com/2021/02/09/time-magazine-gushingly-profiles-the-successful-conspiracy-to-rig-the-2020-election/

Will your vote ever matter again in America? That is the question few are willing to face, let alone answer. I will do both in this blog.

There is a clear but narrow path to restoring our elections. Believe it or not, the American church is the key. But I believe God must do a deep work in us in order for us to step up to our duty and our destiny.

Here is what must be done, step by step:

We must get to the bottom of what happened that fateful night of November 3rd, 2020. Finding out what happened, and how it happened, is our highest challenge and duty. We cannot just let this go. There is no option. We cannot escape and we cannot retreat from this sacred task. America’s future rests in uncovering and defeating this great evil. Your vote will never matter, if we do not do this.

We must face the fury. There is a reason Democrats and the Left have unleashed their fury on those who doubt the results of the election. They had to ban us. They had to use a scorched-earth attack on people like Mike Lindell, Sidney Powell, Rudy Giuliani and anyone else who, to any degree, claimed there was fraud.

The swift and vicious censorship by Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Google had nothing to do with protecting the nation. It was shock and awe, designed to prevent anyone from uncovering the truth.

But the remnant of God must face their fury. We must dig deep and find the emotional miracle of God’s grace in order to hold our ground. It is a withering attack. That is why some voices who had formerly declared victory, faltered near the finish line.

Now they face a new agony. But you must not falter.

You must be wrapped in the revelation of what is at stake! This is not just about vindicating Trump—this is about your freedom—this is about your children’s freedom. So, how do we face the fury?

I found some promises in the Bible that are amazing and, at the same time, eerie. They seem like they were written to American believers, fighting to expose the fraud. 

These verses instruct us to be trained and to remain calm as God works to bring justice:

“Blessed is the man whom You instruct, O Lord, and teach out of Your law, that You may give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit is dug for the wicked” (Psalm 94:12, 13).

Take a close look at why these promises are so perfect for the remnant who are seeking justice in this corrupt moment.

It is telling you that God is training you. It is telling you that this training will keep you calm in the waiting period that might otherwise grind you down. Then the passage concludes with this awe-inspiring revelation: God is digging a ditch.

God is digging a ditch. Do you realize how important it was for Trump’s victory to be delayed? It was necessary to uncover the magnitude of the evil in our government. Had Trump just waltzed into a second term, he would have been paralyzed by the Deep State and the Swamp. He would have had people around him he only thought were on his side. Now, at least, we have the big picture. We see the mass network of corruption that is made up of both Democrats and Republicans.

God is digging a ditch! It is taking longer than we had hoped it would, because we need a ditch big enough to hold this entire web of deceit. But God wants you to remain calm during the digging.

The plot will be uncovered. God has acted in history to uncover conspiracies. That is the story of Esther. But another story is much closer to our situation. It is found in Nehemiah 4:14-15, “And I looked, and arose and said to the nobles, to the leaders, and to the rest of the people, “Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, great and awesome, and fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses.” And it happened, when our enemies heard that it was known to us, and that God had brought their plot to nothing, that all of us returned to the wall, everyone to his work.”

Here we see the man of God speaking courage and firing up the morale of discouraged warriors. Then he praises God for the miracle of uncovering the plot.

These are days we must use to press into God. These are days when special vessels will rise with special gifts to save souls, heal the sick and to reveal the evil. Chosen voices will be given secret information that will turn the tables. God Himself will judge the corruption.

We are on our way to a day when our vote will count and elections will again be free and fair. It is coming!

WHAT THE BIBLE REALLY SAYS ABOUT SUBMISSION TO GOVERNMENT.

Today we woke to the up to the sad truth that Democrats  have declared war. They are demanding unconditional surrender. No only from the church but from innocent citizens. Their war compels believers to look again at what the Bible says about evil laws and evil leaders.

Doesn’t the Bible tell us to obey them no matter what? Absolutely not. And it is shocking how many believers do not know their Bible or have been given false teaching. There is no verse in the Bible that tells you to obey evil government or laws.

If we don’t realize this now, we will sit back and let our nation be destroyed.

Christians during the American Revolution understood that the Bible does not teach us to obey evil laws or leaders. There would be no America if Christian Colonists believed they should obey the evil laws of England.

Let me prove to you beyond any doubt that the Bible tells us what we must do in the face of wicked government and laws.

First, I will expose a pathetic heresy that many believers commonly accept as truth. This is a widespread excuse for submitting when we should disobey.

Here is an example of someone who wrote me while under the influence of this false teaching:

“Out of curiosity, how do you justify your argument against obeying the government when you read Romans 13:1-7. The government Paul was talking about was even more oppressive than anything we can imagine. You could truly be martyred for your faith under the Roman government. And, what was Paul’s response? Did he call for governmental reform? Did he call for us to protest the government? Did he demand his rights and call on the government to recognize his rights? None of the above, he said, in the face of a brutal government, to obey. He didn’t say obey if your rights are recognized, he said obey. The church of today has to realize that the government is not our arena as Christians. Never, in the history of the church, has God used the government to bring about change.”

This defense of submission to evil government is riddled with error and falsehoods. Here are my responses to selected quotes:

1.You could truly be martyred for your faith under the Roman government.” First the writer tells us to obey evil laws, but then mentions martyrs. They never would have been martyred had they not broken the law by being Christians.

2. Then he asks, “Did (Paul) call for governmental reform? Did he call for us to protest the government? Did he demand his rights and call on the government to recognize his rights? None of the above…” The truth is, Paul did all of the above. “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” (Acts 16:37).

3. And finally, the zinger—the heresy that has sidelined the Body of Christ in the hour when we are most needed: “The church of today has to realize that the government is not our arena as Christians. Never, in the history of the church, has God used the government to bring about change.” Totally untrue. William Wilberforce was a Christian who used his faith in Jesus to abolish slavery in England. In fact, believers throughout history have created child labor laws, health regulations, and have exposed injustice, and corruption. It is safe to say that Christians are more responsible for influencing government, bringing about reform by forcing laws to be changed, and standing up for justice, than any other group in history.

So how did this writer get it so wrong? By doing what so many do. Isolating one set of verses, taking them out of context, and arriving at a conclusion that looks holy, but is in fact, pure and simple fear.

Let’s look at the verses that have been violated:

“Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore, whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. Therefore, you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for the sake of conscience. For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor (Romans 13:1-7).

It seems to say that we are to honor government in every form, right? Wrong. To demonstrate what Paul is saying I offer this example. Say some parents leave the house, and leave the oldest child in charge. The child is given strict instructions not to open the door for anyone, except for a postal messenger whom they are expecting to deliver an important package that day.

The parents tell the child, “He will have blonde hair. He is wearing blue jeans and a white shirt. Don’t let anyone else in.” So later, a man with black hair, a blue shirt, and black slacks knocks on the door claiming to be the messenger with the package. Do they let him in? Of course not.

Lost in all the quoting of this verse on submission to government is the most important part: The description of the ruling authority. The Bible tells us what they are wearing! Look at the description:

1.They are not a terror to good works. Any government that terrorizes the innocent is not of God. How can you say that Hitler was God’s will for Germany? Hitler and other tyrants are in fact the ones being warned that there were God appointed governments who would destroy them: “But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.”  That is why the just powers of the world rose up and destroyed the Nazis.

2. They praise good works. Authorities that are endorsed by God do not hate or oppose Christian activity. They are the ones who—even if they are not Christian themselves—do not insult soul winning or fight the work of God. They are the cops, teachers, politicians who are glad that children are getting out of gangs and off of drugs.

3. You must be subject for the sake of conscience. When it becomes tricky, is when government is a mixture of right and wrong. Jesus said of the Pharisees, “Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, but do not do” (Matthew 23:3).

Do what they say, but don’t partake of their hypocrisy. Watch them for that moment when they cross the line and come between you and your God.  Just as our conscience should drive us to obey the law, we should also know when our conscience tells us not to obey an evil law.

Here’s when Peter reached that tipping point, speaking to those very same Pharisees: “So they called them and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered and said to them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:18-20).

And again, in Acts 5:29, “Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.””

God not only does not endorse evil government: He will have no part in it. “Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with You—they who frame and hide their unrighteous doings under [the sacred name of] law?” (Psalm 94:20). There is your answer. A corrupt throne (government) cannot be allied with God. He cannot have fellowship with it. 

When a government creates evil laws God cannot be allied it—because evil laws are the worst form of wickedness.

 They are damnable because they give legitimacy to evil.  Matthew Henry said, “Iniquity is daring enough even when human laws are against it, which often prove too weak to give an effectual check to it; but how insolent, how mischievous, is it when it is backed by a law! Iniquity is not the better, but much the worse, for being enacted by law; nor will it excuse those that practice it to say that they did but do as they were bidden.”

Notice how at the end, Henry says we can’t use the excuse that we were just obeying the law.  That is why Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”

The laws being created by Democrats, using the coronavirus as an excuse, are far worse than the virus itself because, unlike the virus, those new laws become permanent.  It is time for the church to wake up and take action, beginning with voting the evildoers out of office and quit calling our submission a godly thing, when it is just a cowardly thing.

“WHO WILL RISE UP FOR ME AGAINST THE EVILDOERS? WHO WILL STAND UP FOR ME AGAINST THE WORKERS OF INIQUITY?” (Psalm 94:16).
