Will You?

Will you let God use you to save America? Maybe you can see that something radical needs to happen. Maybe you see how Satan has sold so many believers fool’s gold.  Instead of taking up weapons mighty to the tearing down of strongholds, they pursue money, cheap grace, and safe spaces.

Maybe you can see how shallow, flattering, teaching is the perfect greenhouse gas.  Its fumes dull reality. It kills natural urgency.  Taking a stand has become a distant fantasy to many…but what about you?

You see how faith has grown flabby.  You can’t bear to see how many don’t know our weapons.  They don’t know our authority.  They have no marching orders.  They don’t know what to say to this generation.  Most of all, you feel a deep urgency and you are shocked at how ignorant so many are about what is right around the corner.

Peter recognized when government crossed the line.  Acts 4: 19 But Peter and John replied, “Which is right in God’s eyes: to listen to you, or to him? You be the judges! 20 As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.”

He also understood what to do when government tries to ban the Gospel: “Acts 5: 28 saying, “Did we not strictly command you not to teach in this name? And look, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this Man’s blood on us!” 29 But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.”

They are coming after our freedom.  They will force feed our children the Antichrist agenda. That is…unless we wake up to our purpose and destiny.   I am calling you out for special power in this hour. However, we are to be alert not alarmed. Let the dire consequences light a fire in your soul! Is God selecting you to give a weapons grade faith and boldness?

If you are finally ready to be a part of God’s war to save our nation, then do these things:

1. You must be filled or refilled with the Holy Spirit.  You must have fire, or you must have fresh fire.   The courage to face the onslaught of hatred that will be thrown at you can never be met by human power.  To say what you need to say, to obey when you need to obey can’t come from human motivation.  You must have the same Spirit that fueled world-changing saints in all times. God never meant for anyone to preach or lead without a clear baptism of the Holy Spirit.

2. You must flow in signs and wonders.  Our culture is beyond words.  They must see proof of the power of God.  God means for you to provide that proof.  The authority you need won’t come cheaply or instantly.  (Read my blog on the price of God’s miracle working power https://wp.me/p1vrzp-53e

3. Get ready to do something for God that will boggle your mind.  God is selecting people and working in them for unmatched power to attack evil.  Habakkuk 1: 5 “Look among the nations and watch—Be utterly astounded! For I will work a work in your days Which you would not believe, though it were told you.”

He is creating people who can turn the tide of wickedness.  He doesn’t care about your age or your education.  He searches for someone who is travailing over the evil and will die without power and purpose.  They want to be in the fight—they want to be in the thick of it.  Isaiah 6: 8 says, “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

4. Prepare to pray in a way you never imagined.  God is pulling you out of the damaged religious crowd into special intimacy with him.  You are not going to pray like you did before.  E.M Bounds said, “To say prayers in a decent, delicate way is not heavy work. But to pray really, to pray till hell feels the ponderous stroke, to pray till the iron gates of difficulty are opened, till the mountains of obstacles are removed, till the mists are exhaled and the clouds are lifted, and the sunshine of a cloudless day brightens-this is hard work, but it is God’s work, and man’s best labor.”

What do all of these things I am asking you to do have in common?  Every one of them involves a leap out of dead religion.  They are a courageous declaration of war on the godless ideologies that are destroying our nation.  They are an irrevocable decision to be in the middle of God’s greatest acts in history.

Preachers who are traitors

Beto O’Rourke just called Trump a Nazi. He cited comments Trump has made about Mexicans. The problem is that Trump never said all Mexicans are thieves and rapists. If you believe he said that, you believe a lie.

What he said was that among the people who invading us there are thieves and rapists and that the nation of Mexico condones the illegal entry of these criminals.  What Trump said was a simple fact and the statistics bear it out.

24% of the women who are among groups of illegals are raped during their attempt to enter our country. Not only that, but once these criminals get here, they commit rape and murder of innocent Americans in alarming numbers.

Beto’s accusation of Nazism is the ultimate irony because if you want a modern comparison to the death camps, it is the abortion clinics—and Beto heartily defends killing babies even after they are born.

The real difference between our abortion clinics and German concentration camps is that tens of millions more have died in our clinics than in their camps.

What is similar is that Nazis didn’t believe Jews were human and the left doesn’t believe a fully developed fetus is human.

The greatest moral outrage of our time is the hypocrisy over immigration and abortion. When one feels more compassion for MS 13 gangsters than innocent babies it is pure madness and abomination.

The only thing darker is the motivation behind this hypocrisy: it is to get more votes for the Democrat Party. Period. Democrats have sold their soul to Satan for votes. They have ruined America for votes. They know illegals will vote for the leftists who helped sneak them in. They know that an immoral society will vote for abortion if you can help salve their conscience by sanitizing ritual murder into simple birth control.

However, today I am opening my heart to warn my fellow preachers and begging them to stop being traitors—traitors to the cause of righteousness.

You know who you are. You are saying Trump’s immigration policies are racist from the pulpit. You know that is not true. You are saying abortion is the law of the land and we must respect it. You know that is wrong…deeply wrong.

Or perhaps you are silent on immigration and abortion and believe that you are exonerated. Your silence is a betrayal of your calling to be a man or woman of God. You know the condition of America. You know there is a moral civil war that makes neutrality impossible. You know your own people are suffering for your misguided views. The Word of God leaves no room for you to abandon your post in this dark hour.

Do you realize that if the men and women of God had mobilized their congregations to vote righteously, we would not be in this mess—but here we are and there is no longer a place for you to hide. We must bring the Body of Christ together to stand against the agenda that is about to destroy us.

Why were you easy on Obama and are now hard on Trump? Notable Christian leaders who did not speak out against Obama have now chosen to speak out against Trump.  Specifically, they claim Trump’s immigration policy is anti-Christian.

It makes zero sense.  Let’s begin with their silence on Obama. Obama was the most hostile president to the Bible in history.  Obama fought for late term abortion.

Obama opened the Pandora’s Box of political correctness that has the racists calling everyone else racist, and the fascists calling everyone else fascists.  Obama is why our universities are a sick joke of intellectual dishonesty. You gave a pass to the man who was trying to drive the church underground.

Now you oppose Trump—the first president to address the March for Life.  Now you attack the president who finally stood up to the hideous Johnson Amendment that took away your free speech.  You use that newly won free speech to attack Trump.

The most devastating charge is this: you actively told your people not to vote for Trump…and unless you wake up you will do it again in the next election.   If you succeed, you will help a raging leftist become the most powerful person in the world. 

You don’t want a wall; you believe Jesus taught open borders.  You don’t believe we should push to ban abortion. Have you swallowed the Kool-Aid of the left?

Have you copied the sin of Democrats? They want more votes and you want more members—members who will only stick with a church that compromises truth.

You are siding with sanctuary cities.  You are allowing a system that protects killers.  This one hits home to me because just recently in Reno where I live, an illegal immigrant murdered 4 people.

You are siding against your own congregation.  You are condoning flooding the labor market with unskilled labor even as robots replace workers. This impacts the life of the people you swore to serve.  You are blatantly contradicting yourselves claiming to be their pastor even as you help make their lives harder and more dangerous.

I love you as my brothers, sisters and coworkers in Christ, but on this point,  you need to be publicly challenged.  Examine your argument and see if it is the one that is false and unchristian.

Illegals have killed and they will kill again.  Abortion clinics kill by the second.  Democrats have truly made themselves the party of death. Ask God if you are not pawns in their game.

Lastly, is a wall and a secure border unchristian?  Let’s ask Jesus.  “But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into.” –Matthew 24:43

I am begging you my brothers and sisters. Let’s unify at the foot of the Cross of Jesus and see the righteous cause.  You are not here to get your jollies from money and big churches. You have come to the Kingdom for such a time as this. You are here to roar truth from a heart of love and spend yourself for the sake of turning America away from disaster. Don’t be a traitor!

 

Infiltrators

I want to show you this nasty comment about my blog: “I honestly don’t understand how God-fearing Christians can defend this repugnant, amoral, adulterous, whore monger, toddler of a President. Jesus fed the hungry, healed the sick, told his followers not to judge. And Trump’s cruelty knows no bounds. Locate your moral compass. It’s failing you right now.”

This person is an infiltrator. He has been tapped by the left in a new tactic. They go on social media and pose as Christians. the reason for this is that the church is slowly and finally opening their eyes. More and more believers including Black Americans and Hispanics are realizing that God has placed Trump in power for this hour.

I promise you this is not a believer but an infiltrator who knows church lingo. His goal is to rattle impressionable Christians. Don’t buy it!  The left is struggling among Christians that is why they have resorted to these tactics.  Their chief narrative is to bring up Trump’s past.

Recently, I had a message passed on to me from a pastor. The note was from a concerned woman who eloquently (a little too eloquently) described how dismayed she was by the lack of love of Trump supporters and how the people of God had been fooled for following such a wicked leader. I don’t have space or time to show you how subtle and deceptive her message was. It shook some who read it.

Later it was revealed she was not a believer at all, but an activist from a local Islamic and leftist consortium trained to insinuate their way into churches and social media.

It’s obvious that this one of many attempts of distraction—a distraction away from the nation-killing evil that is even at the door. If we let voices like this one fool us, by shaming our faith, it spells doom for America. Trump, like him or hate him, is virtually the last firewall against the villainous policies of the left.

Another even more subtle approach of these posers is spread apathy by telling believers political involvement shows a distrust for God.  some say, “it’s all in God’s hands. Don’t interfere in His work”

Don’t believe them.  And don’t you say you believe it is all in God’s hands while you oppose the solution He has sent. Trump isn’t our pastor. He is a wrecking ball to ideas that hate God, Israel, you, and your children.  Don’t ask Trump to do our job.

Just look at the last few days. The Democrat controlled House removed the phrase, “so help me God” for those sworn in to testify. New York legalized killing an unborn child right up to the moment of their birth. Kamala, the front runner for the democrat party said she would abolish all private health insurance. According to Kaiser, that would wipe out coverage for 49% of Americans…not to mention throwing 500,000 people out of work. And by the way, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez says the world will end in 12 years.  

The enemy doesn’t want you to see the disaster at our door. He wants you to fixate on Trump’s past so he can destroy your children’s future. The demonic engine that drives the left, hides the world they want for your children and grandchildren.

They don’t want you to see how their socialism will tax us into oblivion. Most of all, they don’t want you to see that they are everything they claim they’re against.

Here’s how lies become truth: you call in “experts.” You speak your lie with a straight face. Devoid of facts, you command the audience to believe you.

Trump is the racist? Take a deep breath and prepare for what history is going to conclude about many things in our time. They will say the events that excluded whites on campus were racist. That terms like white privilege—like any other categorical statement that includes a color—is itself racist. They will ask how a nation that elected a black man to its highest office for 8 eight years can be accused of being “systemically racist.”

By the way, this charge of racism is coming to you from the Party that started the Klu Klux Klan.

History will ask the same thing about hate and violence.  An agitated feminist told a black man to take off his MAGA hat “because it makes us fear.” That’s a statement in search of a fact. You don’t see roving gangs of youth donning MAGA hats assaulting people in the streets. You do see people wearing masks assaulting those who wear the hats.

 

In fact, you see Nick Sandmann and the young men from Covington High school terrorized and falsely accused because they wore MAGA hats. These boys’ lives have been changed forever. They have been vilified. Their families have received death threats. They’ve been forced to hire an attorney to protect themselves from further slander. The left is having a veritable field day of violence… and you worry about Trump’s past?

Ponder the breathtaking hypocrisy and cruelty of Mueller and Comey. How they blatantly ignore the mountain of evidence of treason and obstruction against Hillary Clinton.  But nitpick trivia about Trump and the Russians. The crimes they claim Trump did—but didn’t do—are the very ones she did do. Mind boggling!

Future thinkers will scratch their head at leftists who excoriated Trump for separating children from their parents even as they celebrate that new law, I mentioned that lets a woman dismember their child even at the point of birth.

Questions burn in me:

The noise, smoke and mirrors of today’s propaganda machine amazes on so many levels.  The Democrat Party’s hard left turn promises massive new spending. All the free stuff they intend to force on you will bankrupt a nation already in massive debt. When they beast starts eating do you really believe only the rich will be taxed? Your children will give up most of what they earn to the socialist machine that will hand it over to those who earn nothing. Why wouldn’t we try to stop this?

They know robots are about to replace millions of jobs. Why open the borders to millions of unskilled laborers?

Tehran just hung a person for being homosexual but in the leftist universe the Christians are the real moral bigots. And you worry about standing with Trump?

I could go on forever and no doubt you could throw in some real zingers I overlooked. But I need to get to the real point of this…you need to take a look at the left—they can destroy America…left unchecked they will. What do you think Trump is trying to stop?

Don’t look the other way from the doom the left carries. Don’t ignore the change in this man since he began running for president. Most of all, don’t let infiltrators posing as Christians dredge up Trump’s past. It is evident to many who knew him that he is not the same man. However, your children’s future is far more important than Trump’s past.

REMEMBER

Remember I told you this. In the next few years a new kind of Christian leader will appear. They not fit any present mold. They will be the catalysts. They will usher in the next great awakening.

A few of them will be in pulpits. More of them will be politics, business, science, law, and entertainment, music, or a thousand other fields of endeavor.  They will not introduce subjects—they will introduce eras.

No one will be able to buy them off or get them to change the subject. They will operate on a disquieting plane of holiness and consecration. I believe A. W. Tozer was describing them when he said, “they serve God and mankind from motives too high to be understood by the rank and file of religious retainers who today shuttle in and out of the sanctuary.”

Today they suffer. Their agony is what happens when worlds collide. They see their destiny. It’s big and dangerous. A part of them glories in the potential to know God intimately and represent Him bravely. They see themselves rebuking kings, tyrants and warmongers. They see themselves commanding the wealth of the wicked be handed over to the just.

God is warring to save America. You must find your assignment in that war. But how can we know our assignment?

The secret to finding your assignment is your heart. God speaks to the heart and then the heart must control the mind. Today many spirit-filled believers are practicing an unwitting form of new age. They relate to God as if He were a force and not a person.

They think that audacity and confidence will unlock gifts, authority, and direction. They speak of “activating gifts” as if there was a formula to supernatural manifestations. My friend it comes through brokenness, not arrogance. The “force” is a farce.

The Holy Spirit requires everything to come through relationship. Sorry, but Christianity has always been and will always be family owned and operated. So then how can we know our assignment?

Your assignment in the army of God is your individual expression and extension of Christ’s destruction of the works of the devil. You are a destroyer of the works of the devil. God will give you a way to do it that is all your own.

Until that gets through to you—until you admit and agree to those terms—God will remain silent about your assignment.

Because the American situation is impossible, only one kind of person will make a difference now. They must be armed with divine certainty. They must own an unshakable, to-the-bone conviction that they have been chosen for this task.

Without this, we have zero hope of removing the bloody talons of Satan off the throat of our nation. Without it, we are doomed to another embarrassing misfire pawned off as revival.

Next, you must face the fact that very few are supposed to be preachers or pastors. For too long, we have listened to the voice of God through a filter. Whenever God moved someone to serve, we assumed it meant ministry.

This assumption of ministry has sent many to Bible Colleges who didn’t belong there. Worse yet, it has filled pulpits with people who had no business being there. This reminds me of why President Woodrow Wilson once said, “the proof the Gospel is divine is the preaching it has survived.”

This filtered view of service is one big reason the church lost influence in our nation. God tried to send people into education, law, medicine, business, art, media and yes even politics but we herded them into “Christian service.”

You see it in the Bible. You see it in the stories of heroes of faith throughout history who altered the course of their generation. At the dawn of their mission, God infuses them with incontestable certainty.

This certainty plays a critical role in their survival. Think of it like the escape velocity of a rocket. Escape velocity is one of the biggest challenges of space travel. In order for a rocket to break free of the Earth’s gravitational force it must reach a speed of seven miles per second. That’s 25,000 miles per hour!

Divine certainty blasts the chosen vessel of God past the gravitational force of Satanic attacks, the seduction of fame, withering criticism, and the dark night of the soul that must come to all who are called of God.

Evil convulses at the approach of a new vessel of God. Hell, instantly puts chosen ones on a hit list. The child of God must be blasted by divine certainty into a trajectory that will escape the pull of devils, the seduction of fame, withering criticism, and the dark night of the soul that comes to all who are called of God.

From his death bed John Welsey wrote his last letter to encourage Wilberforce. In it he confirms the urgency of divine certainty: “Unless God has raised you up for this very thing, you will be worn out by the opposition of men and devils. But if God be for you, who can be against you? Are all of them together stronger than God? O be not weary of well doing! Go on, in the name of God and in the power of his might…”

Understand this child of God! The same Spirit that is awakening a passion and direction in you is doing it to millions more. Soon an army will emerge that is entrenched in every area of our culture. Today it is fire here and there but soon as the prophetic core of God obey and embrace their assignment and come together in a chorus of victory that will be unlike anything we have ever seen.

 

Stolen

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

No, I am not a prophet

No I am not a prophet. I am something else. God ordered me to warn the American churches of an impending disaster—to rebuke rampant immorality: abandoning the Word of God, and political hypocrisy. God ordered me to expose the tyranny of the left and wake up as many drowsy Christians as possible.

Ironically, few criticized me when I preached against gang violence, poverty, heroin and crystal meth. But they attack me for exposing the worst gang and the most addictive narcotic: leftist socialism.

But I am not a prophet! Amos said, “I am not really one of the prophets. I do not come from a family of prophets. I am just a herdsman and fruit picker. But the Lord took me from caring for the flocks and told me, ‘Go and prophesy to my people Israel.”-Amos 7:14

I was just minding my own business winning souls. Leading addicts, gang bangers, and students to Jesus is my life. Only my wife and a few very near to me know the price I’ve paid. I have lost friends. I have been banned from some churches. And no wonder!

This blog put a spotlight on a hideous, hidden condition. Churches were tacitly approving abortion, same sex marriage, and many other leftist democrat views in order to hold on to their members.

When you consider the content of the blog it is a miracle that it has spread to millions of readers. It preaches a message that few ever get in church anymore. It breaks every axiom of social media. Instead of using video—a far more effective means of attracting an audience—I was limited to the written word. There is no natural way to explain it’s expanding influence except God. However, it is here to warn!

If I am not a prophet, then what is my office gift? I am an Evangelist! That is all I want to do is see mass revival with signs and wonders. I have never stopped winning souls! I will never stop winning souls!

Someone else was supposed to take this mantle to prophesy that weighs so heavy on me. The Lord revealed to me that someone was unwilling to lose their reputation to stand in the gap for America. I was not God’s first choice for this! Now I must issue a fresh warning.

Because of the yawning sickness in the American church that was demonstrated in the mid term elections. Because millions of so-called Christians voted for the Democrat Party. Because they sat in churches. Heard murky messages…and in many cases were even urged by pastors—hired guns bought and paid for by the likes of George Soros—to vote for leftists—they are bringing the judgement of God. They are the proverbial wolves in sheep’s clothing.

Those false ministers—who form covenants with darkness—who are muzzled by politics—who can’t condemn abortion, the destruction of marriage, Islam and the anti-God violence, face special danger—they have grieved the Holy Spirit.

The ideas and values that created America are almost gone. That makes the carnal church special villains in the eyes of God. Ananias and Saphira were not destroyed simply because of their crime—it was also because of when they were committed it. They did it in a strategic time when many miracles were taking place.

Amos was not a prophet per se but he was recruited to expose the rogue altars that corrupt priests had built to replace the central altar. They introduced superstitions that were outside the word of God.  Amos told them “tear them down or God will!”

Amos 3:13 says, “Hear and testify against the house of Jacob,” Says the Lord God, the God of hosts, 14 “That in the day I punish Israel for their transgressions, I will also visit destruction on the altars of Bethel; And the horns of the altar shall be cut off And fall to the ground. 15 I will destroy the winter house along with the summer house; The houses of ivory shall perish, And the great houses shall have an end, Says the Lord.”  Can this mean that lavish centers of worship can suddenly go missing?  Can we afford to assume they cannot?

Two years after Amos prophesied, an earthquake destroyed everything Amos targeted.

But Isaiah said, “tell the righteous it shall be well with them.”  This is the hour for the remnant who love God and seek His face to feel comfort.  You will be spared.

In fact, at this moment, heaven is releasing power for miracles, words of prophetic might, and great resources to do the work of God.  Those who have kept their integrity–and perhaps labored in obscurity not seeing results—will receive great power and multiplication.

For the rest there remains an ominous warning: In your carnality, you are one the greatest threats to freedom.  You are aiding and abetting the destruction of a great miracle—the miracle of liberty that came from our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution.

If the church will not rise up and speak…God will turn even nature against us to spare America.  Matthew Henry said something chilling in his commentary on Amos: “If men will not destroy idolatrous altars, God will, and those with them that had them in veneration.”

Someday soon, all I say will be confirmed. I will be released from this prophetic mandate. I am not a prophet. I am an Evangelist.

IF YOU ARE FINALLY READY

Satan is flooding the world with evil while Christians have grown passive.  Believers are ignorant of what God expects them to do to stand against the torrent of wickedness. But there are those who are sick of waiting and sick of the evil. They know there is something bigger and wider than they have ever known. They also know something else…

They know that:

-Shallow, flattering teaching is the perfect greenhouse gas.  It’s fumes dull reality. It kills natural urgency.  Taking a stand becomes a distant fantasy.

-Satan has sold the church fool’s gold.  Instead of taking up weapons mighty to the tearing down of strongholds, we pursue money, cheap grace, and celebrity.

-Faith has grown flabby. Too many don’t know our weapons.  They don’t know our authority.  They don’t know our marching orders.  They don’t know what to say to this generation.  Most of all, they know must believers are ignorant about what is right around the corner, if we don’t see revival.

Peter recognized when government crossed the line.  Acts 4: 19 But Peter and John replied, “Which is right in God’s eyes: to listen to you, or to him? You be the judges! 20 As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.”

He also understood what to do when government tries to ban the Gospel: “Acts 5: 28 saying, “Did we not strictly command you not to teach in this name? And look, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this Man’s blood on us!”

29 But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men.”

They are coming after your freedom.  They will force feed your children the Antichrist agenda. That is…unless we wake up to our purpose and destiny.   I am calling you out for special power in this hour.

If you are finally ready, then do these things:

1. You must be filled or refilled with the Holy Spirit.  You must have fire, or you must have fresh fire.   The courage to face the onslaught of hatred that will be thrown at you can never be met by human power.  To say what you need to say, to obey when you need to obey can’t come from human motivation.  You must have the same Spirit that fueled world-changing saints in all times. God never meant for anyone to preach or lead without a clear baptism of the Holy Spirit.

2. You must flow in signs and wonders.  Our culture is beyond words.  They must see proof of the power of God.  God means for you to provide that proof.  The authority you need won’t come cheaply or instantly.  (Read my blog on the price of God’s miracle working power https://wp.me/p1vrzp-53e

3. Get ready to do something for God that will boggle your mind.  God is selecting people and working in them for unmatched power to attack evil.  Habakkuk 1: 5 “Look among the nations and watch—Be utterly astounded! For I will work a work in your days Which you would not believe, though it were told you.”

He is creating people who can turn the tide of wickedness.  He doesn’t care about your age or your education.  He searches for someone who is travailing over the evil and will die without power and purpose.  They want to be in the fight—they want to be in the thick of it.  Isaiah 6: 8 says, “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

4. Prepare to pray in a way you never imagined.  God is pulling you out of the damaged religious crowd into special intimacy with him.  You are not going to pray like before.  E.M Bounds said, “To say prayers in a decent, delicate way is not heavy work. But to pray really, to pray till hell feels the ponderous stroke, to pray till the iron gates of difficulty are opened, till the mountains of obstacles are removed, till the mists are exhaled and the clouds are lifted, and the sunshine of a cloudless day brightens-this is hard work, but it is God’s work, and man’s best labor.”

What do all of these things I am asking you to do have in common?  Every one of them involves a leap out of dead church life.  They are a courageous declaration of war on the godless ideologies that are destroying our nation.  They are an irrevocable decision to be in the middle of God’s greatest acts in history.
