Richmond Virginia Police Chief Will Smith became very emotional when discussing an incident that happened on Saturday night. He says that rioters set fire to a few buildings, including a multi-family residence that was occupied by a child. He repeatedly had to stop, in order to compose himself, as he detailed how some rioters blocked the fire department from responding.
Satan has launched a weapon. It’s overrunning our streets. It is fueled by demons—spirits of mindless violence and destruction. The human puppet “protesters” don’t care about anything or anyone. They go to George Soros.com to get paid. Not only don’t these social justice warriors care about your rights or your safety, they also do not care about George Floyd. He was just the excuse—the match that lit their fuse.
We are in the time that Jesus foretold: “And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold” (Matthew 24:12).
Likewise, Paul predicted, “BUT UNDERSTAND this, that in the last days will come perilous times of great stress and trouble. For people will be lovers of self and [utterly] self-centered, lovers of money and aroused by an inordinate [greedy] desire for wealth, proud and arrogant and contemptuous boasters. They will be abusive (blasphemous, scoffing), disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy and profane. [They will be] without natural [human] affection (callous and inhuman), relentless (admitting of no truce or appeasement); [they will be] slanderers (false accusers, troublemakers), intemperate and loose in morals and conduct, uncontrolled and fierce, haters of good. [They will be] treacherous [betrayers], rash, [and] inflated with self-conceit. [They will be] lovers of sensual pleasures and vain amusements more than lovers of God. For [although] they hold a form of (true religion); they deny and reject and are strangers to the power of it. Avoid [all] such people [turn away from them]” (2 Timothy 3:1-3 Amplified 1974).
When hell is released, what can the church do? It is shocking that so many Christians can’t answer that question. This generation of believers has not been prepared or equipped to discern and defeat evil. In many cases they have no understanding of evil. The preaching they sat under failed to teach them about the importance of the weapons of our warfare.
The kinds of sermons that could and should have told us what to do—the preaching with authority over Satan—was withheld. In the sunshine of “normal” American life, many celebrity preachers put forth the myth of a warless Christianity, thinking that spiritual warfare might be too offensive for sensitive ears.
This is how the true warrior of God is described in the Revelation: Revelation 12:11, “And they overcame him (the devil) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives unto death.” My passion is that it can also be said of us: “they overcame him!”
But sadly, for us, The Blood of Jesus is relegated to consolation, and to feeling forgiven. It was not preached as what it is: the weapon of choice for overcoming evil. The sword of the spirit has been treated the same way as a man might buy a decorative sword to mount on his wall. Occasionally, he might take it down to show a guest its gold-plated hilt. He says, “Feel how sharp the blade is,” and then puts it back up on the wall.
What we are watching happen all across this nation is nothing less than an act of war. Do you really believe these riots were just spontaneous? Pallets of bricks ‘just showed up’ in strategic locations in dozens of cities? Pre-printed flyers instructing protesters how to follow the plan, ‘just appeared’ out of nowhere? Big city Democrats, who so brutally kept innocent citizens trapped in their homes, are now looking the other way and allowing mass riots.
Can the church do anything about this mayhem in our streets? Can we do anything about the billionaire leftists behind both this and the hijacking of the pandemic in their plan to force a one-world dictatorship? The fact that we can’t answer that questions is the final proof of how deeply modern preaching has failed us.
Not only can we deal with this satanic flood— but because of its supernatural origin—we are the only ones who can. And not only can we deal with it, it is our duty to do so. Charles Spurgeon said, “WHEREVER evil appears it is to be fought with by the children of God in the name of Jesus, and in the power of the Holy Ghost. When evil appeared in an angel, straightway there was war in heaven. Evil in mortal men is to be striven against by all regenerate men.”
Christian, wake up! In every generation, hell unleashes a weapon of mass damnation, but heaven is not passive. Heaven forges the master weapon. Heaven seeks someone who will rise up in the Name of Jesus and thrust that weapon of God into the heart of darkness. Maybe it is you? Maybe you are the one that God has been waiting for. Maybe you will be the one who will fully and finally pay the price to drive back the evil. What I do know, is that we are running out of time to save this nation—and the church is the key.
So, what do we do? The steps are clear and undeniable!
The war is first won in the heavenlies. James 5:16, “Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”
The kind of intercession needed in this hour must be cleansed from the diluted and ineffective versions we have popularized. Too often, intercession has become the domain of mystics, and not true warriors. Many love to be known as intercessors, and proudly wear the badge, but they do not carry the authority. They shuttle in and out of Christian circles bearing stolen valor. True intercession is not going into a trance—it is going into the trenches!
The intercession needed today is wrestling, and open-ended agony. The devil must feel your determination to fight to the death. He must tremble at the thought that you have entered the war room and you aren’t coming out until God the father releases angels to the target, and brings conviction upon the wicked.
David Brainerd prayed in the snow. He stained the snow with his blood and melted it with heat of his crying out to God. He rose up and walked into the village of the Delaware Indians, and they immediately fell under the blast of converting conviction.
When Hitler began the battle of Britain, Rees-Howells and the students in his Bible College locked themselves away in prayer. He hung, body and soul, suspended between heaven and earth. His praying turned him inside out. Historians still can’t explain why Hitler suddenly stopped an attack that would most certainly have taken England—but we know.
Again, Spurgeon exhorts us: “You must first overcome in the heavenly places before the throne; and when you have been thus triumphant with God in prayer, you will have grace to go forth to service and to defeat evil among your fellow-men.”
Will anyone who is reading this, please begin exercising the prayer power needed to save America?
What we win in prayer must be enforced on earth. Acting without prayer, is presumption. Refusing to act on what you won in prayer, is disobedience. I guarantee that your God-given actions to save America will cost you friends—lukewarm, uninformed, weak-willed friends. Many still don’t get it, that God sent Trump. They seek to look upon the bright side of total blackness. They refuse to face the fact that injustice, deception and violence must be called out.
So, now that I have answered the question:
WHEN HELL IS RELEASED, WHAT CAN THE CHURCH DO?
How will you enforce the victory of Christ on earth? You will receive your instructions from prayer, but it is urgent that you know what to expect. What will your instructions look like? Will you act on them?
To the preacher, it may require a 180 degree turning of your preaching. It is time for you to distance yourself from the leftist lies and the myth of neutrality being taught by some of your brothers and sisters in ministry. You must also leave the company of those cowards who have elected not to speak out, and who use the fear of losing their 501c3 tax exempt status as an excuse.
To those who are believers, it may mean educating yourself about who your local representatives are and letting them know your opinion on how these riots are being handled.
It may mean that we all recognize that even though there are bad cops, the overwhelming majority are doing a great job and are risking their lives for you and me. We need to tell them we support them. Your kindness may make all the difference in the life of a peace officer.
We must openly obliterate the lie that America is a white supremacist nation. This is the grand myth that these anarchists hide behind. It is upon this that they are hanging their entire effort to stop Trump. If America were truly a white supremacist nation, Obama would never have been elected and reelected.
To further prove my point, can you imagine a white supremacist group trying to stage riots in the streets the way these people have? They would have been squashed like a bug.
Prayer will strip away the power from these demons of violence. Obedience will enforce that victory in the soul of America!
