Yes, we are going to see a scorched earth political campaign from the left. They will be carpet bombing the nation with propaganda. The flood of fake news, character assassination, and criminal activity during the election season will be worse than anything you have ever seen. At a certain point, it will look impossible for our side to win. However, I know we can—I know God wants to do a miracle.
I have sought the Lord. These days of my slow recovery do have a downside for Satan. I have time to pray, study, think, and write. Last night it hit me. There are 5 clear and notable steps to a miracle in November. Here they come:
1. Activate: Realize that there are more of us than you know. There are millions who love Jesus, America, and support our president. You don’t need to engage in endless debates and change someone’s mind—all you have to do is activate those of like mind.
Activate them by telling them what is at stake. By taking the House and the Senate, the left can do as much damage as having Hillary in the White House. The first thing they will do is impeach Donald Trump. While it will take more than impeachment to remove him from office—they will move to do that next.
Ask if they are registered to vote. Ask what their plan is to make sure they vote. Talk to them about studying a sample ballot so that they will prepared to vote correctly. Talk to them about early voting. Make sure they know where to vote.
2. Talk to your pastor. Make sure you do not threaten to leave if you don’t get your way. Gently ask if he or she would consider instructing the Body on what is at stake. One fact should outweigh everything else: THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY HAS DECLARED WAR ON CHRISTIANITY. You are not lying or exaggerating when you tell that to leader.
Spiritual leaders need to know they are not getting political by being vocal about the election. It’s the Democrats who have gotten anti-God. It is a natural extension of a preacher’s calling to destroy the works of Satan, which in this case, is the left’s plan to drive the church underground.
3. Educate yourself on the issues and take public stands. No, I don’t want you glued to cable news, but you should understand your why you are pro-life, pro second amendment, and why you support the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Yes, you can win debates and change minds. When your child comes home from school a victim of leftist encroachment, you should know your parental rights. I have found that many ideas of the left are easily defeated, and young minds believe silliness because they have never heard an opposing view.
Write letters to editors. Call into radio shows. You’ll be amazed at how much noise you can make, and how many minds you can change.
4. Understand that by taking stands against leftists you are not being unloving. Paul knew when to stand up for his civil rights: Acts 16: 36 “So the keeper of the prison reported these words to Paul, saying, “The magistrates have sent to let you go. Now therefore depart, and go in peace.” 37 But Paul said to them, “They have beaten us openly, uncondemned Romans, and have thrown us into prison. And now do they put us out secretly? No indeed! Let them come themselves and get us out. 38 And the officers told these words to the magistrates, and they were afraid when they heard that they were Romans.” Paul knew his rights. He didn’t worry that he was unloving. He forced a political change in that city.
5.Understand warfare intercession. Prayer can’t be polite in this election cycle. It must be intense. It must be targeted. It must be deliberate. It must discern what is happening. Arthur Matthews said, “principalities and powers in heavenly places have mustered their unseen array rigged their Trojan horse infiltrated society and opened the gates for a flood of evil to take over.”
Once alerted to that inescapable fact the soldier of Jesus must set themselves to unleash heaven of the powers of evil. Tragically, most believers are ignorant of the invisible battle. Edith Schaeffer says that “there is a deadness, a blindness, an insensitivity among many Christians, for they refuse to recognize the war in which they are involved.”
The good news is that Jehovah only needs a handful of true intercessors to thwart Satan’s plans in this coming election. You must understand however, your duty, and your authority. Again, Arthur Matthews says, “Barriers are not moved by God’s omnipotence until the believer takes the initiative and stands his ground in the heavenly places to engage the powers of evil that are directly the cause of the ground-level troubles, and resists them in the name of the Victor of Calvary.”
When the enemy came to steal Israel’s water Moses took action to cut off demonic power at the source: Exodus 17: 8 Now Amalek came and fought with Israel in Rephidim. 9 And Moses said to Joshua, “Choose us some men and go out, fight with Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in my hand.”
So long as Moses held up the rod over the battle the Amalekites were defeated. You know the rest, Aaron and Hur held up his arm until victory came.
Hold up the standard of God in prayer. Hold it over the demons who drive the left to their insane extremes. Let your intercession disrupt them. Watch as God divides, confuses, and neutralizes the strategies of devils until we see a miracle in November. Hallelujah!
The leftist media is irrelevant to America. Let me prove it to you. More than that, let me show you why it matters to you. The proof is glaring, and the left can no longer run from it. Here’s the proof:
CBS, NBC, MSNBC, ABC, CNN, The Washington Post, The New York Times, along with the not so subtle help of Youtube, Google, Facebook, Yahoo, every late night talk show host, backed Obama. They were praising, pumping, and drooling. They called anyone racist who didn’t support him. Yet, at this point in his presidency—he had a 43% approval rating among likely voters. With all that firepower they simply could move the needle above 43%.
Now the wrath of that entire media cabal is being poured out 24 hours a day on Trump and his supporters. Yet, Trump’s approval is at least 5 to 6 points higher than Obama at the same point. What does that mean? It means they are irrelevant—and they have been for years. They have a hardcore following but things are getting worse.
Reality came on election night. Crestfallen and dismayed they wailed, cried, and sank horrified. Not just because Trump won but because they were repudiated. They petulantly signed off telling us it was the end of the world. That didn’t happen either.
On the other hand, Fox News continued to dominate ratings—commanding an audience that is larger than many leftist medias combined. Most damaging to the left is the fact that conservative outlets tend to change minds. There’s a reason.
The left rants and spouts slogans but rarely makes a common sense case. Conservatives ask disturbing questions. Here’s an admittedly oversimplified example: Left leaning broadcast: “You are racist!” Conservative site: “Chicago has the strictest gun laws in America and a high murder rate. Why?”
But nothing is costing the left more than the Mueller investigation i.e. witch hunt. The left’s towering hypocrisy is front and center for all to see. They decry foreign influence on our election while they are fighting to let illegals vote.
Here are other signs that the left leaning media is running out of gas:
-Tonight Jimmy Kimmel said he will tone down the Trump bashing as he hosts the Academy Awards.
-The NFL, The Olympics and every other sport hijacked for the left is suffering ratings collapse.
-Even the L.A. Times, printed an article yesterday saying California should not be obstructing federal law when it comes to illegal immigration.
-Abortion is becoming abhorrent to many young people. Planned Parenthood is panicking and dropping tens of millions of dollars to elect democrats.
What does this mean? It means there is a growing audience for moral absolutes and a message of personal responsibility.
What does that mean to you? It means that the church has preached a muted Gospel for no good reason. It means, the idea that the public didn’t want a message of love and repentance was a myth.
It means that throughout history, the church has never looked worse than when she tried to reflect cultural thought. And, she never looked better than when she shined the unfiltered light of the Gospel. We just laid to rest living proof of this fact: Billy Graham.
It means most of all that there is great opening for us. We don’t know how long it will last so we better jump on it. My final statement can make the devil pull a muscle in his head:
God is looking for people—maybe you. He is not looking for better technology or methods. He doesn’t pour out His Spirit on technology or methods…but on people. People who will pray for fire, wisdom, courage and opportunity. If God has heard of you, who cares if anyone else has?
Today, a voice filled with love, truth and the Holy Spirit will cut through this culture like a hot knife through butter. The Gospel is not just relevant—it is timeless. It can answer the evil of today and also what is to come. Amen.
Mass murder, debauchery, and the stress of nations, press us daily. We can feel the crushing weight of inadequacy. Can we stay sane? Is the moral situation so far gone that we tuck our faith and just endure hoping we outlast the madness?
Ephesians 6:10 says, “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.’ But, how do we apply all that power and might to this flood of evil and stress that hitting us every day?
Not only can we apply it, we are expressly called—and uniquely equipped—to express this might. The legacy of our faith demands it—the nature of the Holy Spirit—and the Word of God demand it. There is no holding pattern for us. God only leads forward.
With just a few simple words, Jesus revealed the vast superiority of our victory compared to all world religions. He said, “I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.” –John 17:15.
The religions of the world teach escape. They deem the world too dangerous for their devotees. Whether it is a Buddhist Monastery or a Muslim Caliphate the message is clear: They can’t coexist with secular culture. They require physical separation, cleansing rituals, strict diets, or total subjugation of infidels.
For Jesus to pray for His flock to stay in the culture are not just fighting words—they are an in-your-face smack down of evil.
While cultural contact withers the faith of false religions, it enhances the Christian—it sharpens their faith, brightens their light, and deepens their authority.
You must get why you are here. You must see the astounding picture of the army you belong to. Our very presence on earth is God’s way of saying victory is available. He keeps us here because we can win.
Think of soldiers in an army fighting in their little sector. They are being hard-pressed, and things are going against them. If, for one moment, they think it’s just their fight they will soon be defeated. But when they remember they are only a part of a great and mighty army, and directing it, is the Captain, their Leader, immediately the situation is transformed. In other words, we have got to realize God is involved in it with us. We are only here because of God.
The 3 steps I am about to declare bring victory of the present evil and stress. They hit me when I saw two groups of people—hundreds of years apart, in totally different situations—take the identical 3 steps to victory.
One was a prophecy by Daniel in in 600 BC and the other happened in 31 AD. The first is Daniel describing how the Maccabean revolt would win in 167 BC. The second is the people in the land of Gennesaret welcoming Jesus. The former liberated Israel, the latter wiped out sickness and disease. Again, they both took the same 3 steps. Here are the scriptures:
Daniel 11: 32 “Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.”
Mark 6: 53-56: “When they had crossed over, they came to the land of Gennesaret and anchored there. And when they came out of the boat, immediately the people recognized Him, ran through that whole surrounding region, and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to wherever they heard He was. Wherever He entered, into villages, cities, or the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well.”
Here are the 3 key words in both these victories: KNOW, STRONG, CARRY. The first group knew God, were strong, and carried out exploits. The second group did the same 3 things. They recognized (knew Jesus). They ran (showed strength). They carried others who received miracles. (Exploits)
Take these 3 steps to defeat today’s stress and evil:
- Obey God’s pull. He is pulling you to know Him in deep intimacy: Psalm 27:8 says “When You said, “Seek My face,” My heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.” What is your reaction to God’s call to do a secret work in you? Are you saying yes?
I believe Jesus is using this message from me to you to draw you into special closeness to Him. If you say yes, special things will begin to happen. You will instantly conquer fear and worry. Isaiah 26: 3 says, “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. “
Your faith for mighty things will multiply. Jesus said,” If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.” -John 15:7
God not only knew the insanity of today was coming—He took steps to prepare a special relationship, that would produce special powers for His children. We can blame no one but ourselves if we neglect this astonishing invitation.
- Become strong. What did Isaiah say would happen to those who heeded the call to wait on God? “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31
Your new-found and deep connection to God the Father, create strength. Note once again the amazing parallel between the phrases, “they shall run and not be weary,” and “they recognized Him and ran.
Touchy feely faith is out. This is the era of strong Christians. Tomorrow belongs to Christians who are stronger than headlines—stronger than threats—stronger than anything unfolding on the earth.
- Accept your mission: You have a mission, you have an ordained exploit. It is ironic that the real cure for today’s fear and stress is to think big, and take on massive vision. Fresh vision always chases away depression.
Opposition and persecution do not mean we hide, in fact we are to become bolder. Look at what the disciples did at Iconium: Acts 14: 2 “But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brethren. 3 Therefore they stayed there a long time, speaking boldly in the Lord, who was bearing witness to the word of His grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands.” They were opposed, therefore they stayed and saw greater miracles.
An exploit that summons up all your talent and every drop of your courage is comfort food for the Spirit-empowered believer.
The bottom line: We are so subjective, and we live in this unhealthy psychological generation that starts with man and ends with man. Most of our troubles are due to that. We are always looking inwards and pitying ourselves and being sorry for ourselves, and looking for something to help us. Get rid of that outlook, forget yourself for a moment; the battle is the Lord’s! You can know Him. You can become strong. You will do amazing things.

“Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us! It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.”
By the President of the United States of America.
Whereas, the Senate of the United States, devoutly recognizing the Supreme Authority and just Government of Almighty God, in all the affairs of men and of nations, has, by a resolution, requested the President to designate and set apart a day for National prayer and humiliation.
And whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon; and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.
And, insomuch as we know that, by His divine law, nations like individuals are subjected to punishments and chastisements in this world, may we not justly fear that the awful calamity of civil war, which now desolates the land, may be but a punishment, inflicted upon us, for our presumptuous sins, to the needful end of our national reformation as a whole People? We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power, as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us!
It’s a testament to how far we have fallen. Lincoln’s letter would be deemed a hate crime today. His wise plea would be met with rage and howling disdain. Every talk show host would eviscerate it. Hollywood would have more anger over this letter than they do over Harvey Weinstein. Professors would call it a tool for the white man to keep people of color on the plantation.
Psychiatrists, citing the 25th Amendment, would scream for the mentally unfit Lincoln to be removed from office. He would be accused of being a climate change denier for omitting references to the environment. He would be slurred as Islamophobic for praying to the Christian God. In short, this document would be banned today.
Even in the face of unequaled natural disasters, violence, division and danger, the elite of our nation not only refuse to pray, they ridicule those who wish to repent. This is how far from sanity we have drifted. May God have mercy on our wicked minds.
It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.
Now, therefore, in compliance with the request, and fully concurring in the views of the Senate, I do, by this my proclamation, designate and set apart Thursday, the 30th. day of April, 1863, as a day of national humiliation, fasting and prayer. And I do hereby request all the People to abstain, on that day, from their ordinary secular pursuits, and to unite, at their several places of public worship and their respective homes, in keeping the day holy to the Lord, and devoted to the humble discharge of the religious duties proper to that solemn occasion.
All this being done, in sincerity and truth, let us then rest humbly in the hope authorized by the Divine teachings, that the united cry of the Nation will be heard on high, and answered with blessings, no less than the pardon of our national sins, and the restoration of our now divided and suffering Country, to its former happy condition of unity and peace.
In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.
Done at the City of Washington, this thirtieth day of March, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States the eighty seventh.
By the President: Abraham Lincoln
William H. Seward, Secretary of State.
Easter is not an inspirational analogy. It is not an anecdote preached in a wispy voice reminding us “the long winter will gave way to spring.” That’s like talking about the atomic bomb as if it were a disposable lighter.
Our programs do not make Easter better. The world can get better entertainment in many other places, under many other banners. The idea that organizational or stage dazzle can improve the Gospel is pure foolishness.
Easter is not polite. It won’t be ushered into the harmless category of other religious holidays.
On this day of all days, we must remember what separates the claims of Jesus from all religions on earth.
The difference is laid out in Acts 17: 31 “For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to everyone by raising him from the dead.”
The difference is…He has given proof. The resurrection of Jesus is an imposing, unmatched event. It didn’t just happen…it is happening. Its evidence won’t go away. Its power never dissipated. Its blast radius has yet to be measured.
Opposition only increases its power. The more man tries to bury news of the Resurrection, the more it spreads. Just when the enemies of the Cross feel secure in debunking Easter, some new wrinkle is found, pushing atheism back to square one.
The Resurrection rips away your excuses. God has set a day of judgement…a day where everyone reading this, yea every descendant of Adam will stand before God to be judged. He will do it with JUSTICE.
To do it with justice—to justify such a day, God would first commit an act—an act so undeniable it destroys every excuse for rejecting Christ.
Gospel preachers should never apologize at Easter. They should proclaim. The proof demands it! It calls for all who hear to repent on the spot. There is nothing to mull over or go home and think about.
The difference is the proof and the proof is the difference.
The prayers of the saints have been answered. Hallelujah! Political Correctness is done. Hallelujah! The swamp will be drained. Hallelujah! The evangelical vote is back! Hallelujah! Israel has a new friend. Hallelujah!

The prayers of the saints have been answered. Hallelujah! Political Correctness is done. Hallelujah! The evangelical vote is back! Hallelujah! Israel has a new friend. Hallelujah! The Swamp will be drained. Hallelujah! The justice that our government refused to deliver came from the people. Hallelujah! Abortion has a new enemy. Hallelujah! A leader will work for us and not our enemies. Hallelujah! The Supreme Court will be saved. Hallelujah!
The people have repudiated the Obama legacy. Hallelujah! Obamacare will be replaced. Hallelujah! America has been spared. Hallelujah! Instead of filth, there will be faith in the White House. Hallelujah! The House, the Senate, and the President will work together for hard working Americans. Hallelujah! Outreach ministries are safe from the IRS. Hallelujah! A corrupt mainstream media has been discredited and neutralized. Hallelujah!
When I first began blogging about Donald Trump 18 months ago, pastors told me I could not preach in their church anymore. A Christian television network banned me. I was called racist, homophobic, Islamophobic, xenophobic and many names I won’t publish.
Even more insidious, were minister friends close to me who accused me of abandoning my calling. They said I needed to be winning souls and not speaking out politically. Instead, I did both. I exhausted myself winning souls, and prophesying against the wickedness in Washington.
I went to God every day. I trusted Him! He repeatedly said, “keep going son. Keep speaking out!” When old sources of finances dried up, God opened new ones. When pulpits closed to me new doors opened.
To the bitter end, most preachers refused to stand and be counted. That is something they must live with. However, a remnant declared the truth and faced the onslaught. I am so proud of the voices that spoke out! I am no hero. I am but one of many who simply obeyed.
I give all of the glory for my strength, my fellow warriors, and for this miracle for America to Jesus Christ.
Today, you are indeed, witnessing a singular miracle in American history. Donald Trump faced insanely impossible resistance. He was pronounced dead again and again. Today, he stands with humility, on the cusp of making America Great Again. Hallelujah!
Let thousands see your Hallelujah. Leave a comment and say Hallelujah!
